Eclipses August 2017

There are two eclipses scheduled in August 2017. A partial Lunar Eclipse occurs on the 7th of August 2017 followed by a Solar Eclipse on the 21st August 2017.

Lunar Eclipse


The Lunar Eclipse of 7th August will be visible over Indian subcontinent and maximizes at 23:50:29 hrs. This will also be the day when Indian folks observe Raksha Bandhan when girls tie a sacred around their brother’s wrist. Many Indians will be sleeping around this time. This eclipse occurs in the Capricorn – Cancer Axis, which indirectly is the 3-9 axis of India’s horoscope where relationship with neighbors will get activated. Covert operations, hidden and secret enmity will surface once again. Moon will be at 21deg 24min 22sec Shravana Nakshatra. I am posting the chart of Lunar Eclipse below for easy reference.


Likelihood of trouble escalating on and after 29th October 2017. Natives who have planets in the Nakshatra of Rohini, Hasta, Bharni, Ashlesha and Vishakha are affected by this eclipse. They may suffer financially, health or on other fronts. Trouble can be expected from hidden elements in forests and aquatic areas.

Solar Eclipse

A total Solar Eclipse follows on the 21st August which is quite potent in a way because Saturn, the judge is nearing its steady state. Saturn will be rock steady for days together following the eclipse. This will be the strongest planet for this eclipse horoscope. I am posting appropriate horoscope below. The judge in Scorpio may decide to conceal ALL or reveal and expose ALL. There will be much secrecy involved. Hidden elements in work area, across the seas and within the government have a role to play.

Rahu and Mars in the Gandanta Nakshatra of Ashlesha, Moon and Sun in the gandanta Nakshatra of Magha, Saturn in the gandanta Nakshatra of Jyeshtha – this eclipse will be the mother of ALL eclipses!! With the rising degree in the Nakshatra of Krittika, this will be one surgical intrusion in the affairs of many. The rising degree is pretty close to the Sidereal degree of fixed star Algol – now you know how this eclipse matters a lot!! Some events may be tragic indeed!

This Eclipse will not be visible in India, instead this eclipse is much awaited event for the people of USA because the path of this eclipse cuts thru America in half. The totality of the eclipse will be around 23:51 Hrs IST on the 21st August 2017. The eclipse occurs in the Leo, Aquarius axis with the Sun in Magha Nakshatra at 4deg 46min 29min. Natives who have planets in the Nakshatra of Ashresha, Vishakha, and Krittika are most vulnerable. For some the consequences could be disastrous.

The eclipse activates the following additional Nakshatra’s – Moola, Ashwini, Anuradha, and Dhanishta.

For India, the eclipse occurs in the 4 – 10 axis where many local folks will find policies local government quite difficult to implement and for some time chaos may prevail. With Rahu migrating over to Cancer on 18th August, and into Ashresha Nakshatra, troubles can be expected. Trouble for those in seat of power and especially from overseas can be expected. Trouble can be expected around 7th march 2018 and ahead. For some the trouble can start as early as 6th August 2017.

For those in power in the US, this will be an uncomfortable position (please wait for Mr. Donald Trump’s horoscope analysis in a separate post).
