For those of a prophetic disposition, the recent total solar eclipse in the US belongs to what scientists refer to as the Saros series, which has included eclipses in 1999, 1981, 1963, 1945, 1927, and 1909. Renowned US astrologer Marjorie Orr noted major political events occurring in those years: the impeachment of Clinton, the attempted assassination of Reagan, the assassination of JFK, the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the death of Franklin D. Roosevelt, and a period of civil unrest in Chicago that included an attempted assassination of President William Taft. There has been much written of parallels between this recent eclipse and the shenanigans in the White House since Trump’s inauguration. Astrologers point out that President Trump was born during a lunar eclipse, which they argue makes him more susceptible to their power. If it is to be believed that eclipses are monumental celestial events with real-world consequences, then the occurrence of the recent total solar eclipse could have major implications, especially given the rollercoaster ride of his early administration.
