Total Solar Eclipse Monday, August 21, 2017
Keep an eye open for new beginnings and opportunities not necessarily good or bad. This should be an
exciting period that brings unexpected events for signs in the later degrees* of Taurus, Scorpio, Aquarius
and especially Leo’s. Eclipses force us to take actions that portend growth and bring us into new and
improved directions. These signs will be made aware of matters formerly thought not pressing and that
can no longer be ignored. The next 6 months will make these signs sit up and take notice. Solar eclipses
signal to us about matters that have major significance in our lives. If you have any of these signs within
28° 58′ you definitely experience the effects for, the next 6 months.
It is interesting to note that Donald
Trump’s rising sign is 29◦ 58′ in the sign of Leo which means its influence will have a very personal effect
on him.For more of Pat’s insight she can be contacted at 646-963-3831 or [email protected]

CHAIR YOGA SERIES: Will Return this Fall, 2017
