One of the interesting facts about the solar eclipse is that it will start in China on May 21 and it will end in the United States on May 20. Charts and a map are available with the Lunar Living article. Apparently, there are over 100 national parks in the United States which are set up to encourage viewing the event on Sunday. Let's hope the weather holds out and the clouds stay away. One possible viewing option could be at SLOOH.
In other news, Venus stationed retrograde a few days ago, and the news made it very obvious that the shift of energy was adversely affecting many. The Jastrology.blogspot has a current article discussing the potential impact of Venus' retrograde transit in Gemini. The fact that Venus is also transiting Out of Bounds at the beginning of the retrograde period adds a fear-based intensity to the transit. Hopefully, between the Venus retrograde and the Solar Eclipse energies, nothing happens to dampen the festive energies of the eclipse over the US.
