The Total Solar Eclipse is rousing on 21 August 2017 with the Sun and Moon in Magha constellation Simha Rasi (Leo); according to Vedic Astrology.
Scientifically the occurrence of the Solar eclipse takes place when the moon passes between the earth and the sun, whereby it obscures the image of the sun totally or partly for a viewer on planet Earth.
A total solar eclipse happens when the moon’s apparent diameter is larger than the sun’s, blocking all direct sunlight, turning day into darkness. This is because the Moon is closer to the Earth than the Sun.
Totality of the eclipse occurs in a narrow path across Earth’s surface, with the partial solar eclipse visible over a surrounding region thousands of kilometers wide.

Mars being combust is not fine for Aries and Scorpio moon sign born individuals. Their sense of worth will be low and their personal guiltiness feeling will be on a higher scale. Pressure will be escalating on them for their past commitments. Mercury being retrograde, squaring retrograde Saturn can lead to honest people being cheated. Thereby, be alert, simple minded people. In addition, retro Saturn in the constellation of Jyeshta will lead to delay in delivery of karma. The information will be received but results will be kept on hold and you will have to wait.
Mars on Aslesha nakshatra, Saturn is expecting you to get busy and avoid gossip. Sun and Mercury conjunction (retrograde Mercury and Sun moving towards each other) is good for to the point conversations. Kindly avoid online communication or telephone and mobile calls. Please just meet the person(s) directly. Sudden attractions can happen for few and they will also fade away quickly. Do not get mixed with this for real feelings or forget the people in your life.
A Solar Eclipse in the works of sign of Leo with its lord Sun occupying same sign indicates political turmoil, threats and revolts against family rule, dictatorship. Internally in the country, Prime Minister Modi could face heavy criticism and opposition. Natural Calamities may hit highly prone areas in the next few months. Earthquakes, cyclones and tsunamis are an endless possibility. However, it is weather we are talking about here, not exactly predictable.

If you are born with Moon in Awsini, Magha or Moola constellations, or traveling through Sun (Surya) Dasa, then anticipate major changes in life within 2 months. Act Fast. Life is short to be still thinking whether smoke gray or gray black is the same color.
If you are born under Leo Moon sign or Ascendant or traveling through Sun Dasa, then please note that it is time to take care of your physical condition and associations. This is the paramount time to write down what you yearn for and linger until after Mercury Retrograde is over (September 5th). If you are impatient, then do something really pleasurable that you have not done in quite a long time. Due to that proactive behavior, you will break your mundane daily routine (Uranus). Given that you will be going back to something, you will also be in harmony with the Retrograde.
On an overall note, it looks like a post-apocalyptic period for some signs and for others, well, they are living like Tipu Sultan. Seasons change, Period changes, lives change. It is a never-ending chakra like the one Gandhiji had during his time. Earthquakes are predicted and turmoils in the region are bound to continue but do not worry, you will still be able to access Astroyogi at any point of time with any sort of astrology help you will need.
