USA Aug 21, 2017 Total Solar Eclipse Map!

The purple marker is the point of greatest duration at Carbondale Il, Giant City State Park, 2 minutes, 40.2 seconds! Just a few miles south, holds the distinction of crossing the 2024 eclipse path, making it a unique location for being able to perform observations of both eclipses from the same location! The green marker is the point of the greatest eclipse, in western Kentucky, not far from Hopkinsville. Some of you haven’t heard of this yet, others are all over it, have had your reservations for years in advance!!! Make your viewing plans and reservations ASAP!

Get your eclipse glasses! Party!

First total solar eclipse in the continental U.S. in 38 years Aug 21!

The moon completely blocks the Sun, revealing the Sun’s beautiful outer atmosphere known as the corona. This is a rare, once-in-a-lifetime event for viewers in the United States; people will be coming from all over the world! The last total solar eclipse visible in the continental United States occurred in 1979, 26 years ago, and the next one will not take place until 2024. The path of totality will begin in the Pacific Ocean and travel through the center of the United States. The total eclipse will be visible in parts of Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, Nebraska, Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina, and South Carolina before ending in the Atlantic Ocean. A partial eclipse will be visible in most of North America and parts of northern South America.

About.com says: Lions are the only cat species that forms social groups, called prides. A pride of lions typically includes about five females and two males and their young.  Prides are often described as matriarchal because more females belong to a pride.  They remain long-term members of the pride because they live longer than male lions.

Though we think of Leo as a creature of hot summer, lions/Leos, don’t start their hunting until dusk, enjoying the cooler time of day.  After all, they do have their fur coats on, and like to sleep 20 out of 24 hours.  Lazy?  No, good.  They are great hunters, and take care of business powerfully and swiftly!  They work efficiently in teams, and, indeed, enjoy great social play time whether it’s daytime or a nighttime party!  They do take pride in their looks, their fab hair especially, and their finery whether it be the latest fashion or a fine home with a sweeping view.  Often Leo homes will be on a bit higher ground, or have a balcony of sorts, for them to hold court from!

Leo women love receiving little gifts, or big gifts, being courted and cared for tenderly and romantically.  But make no mistake, they can call the shots with no qualms, be in charge, be teachers, physicians, lead with their athletic prowess!  Treat your handsome Leo guy like the prince he is, and he will roll over and purr!  He is grateful for your recognition and appreciation!  He may flirt, can’t help it, but you’re his one and only!

Leo children need lots of praise and affection, be let to try out their capabilities.  Give them lots to do interspersed with play and snuggly quiet rest time.  They need cheerful playmates and examples of positive social skills.  They can be selfish if fearful, generous if they have good self esteem, trust their own abilities, feel well-loved.

Big hearted, it is grand to be loved by a fiery Leo!

Now for some odd Leo stats from Britain, Security Gripes:

Leos total 19% of the imprisoned population for crimes of violence.  (Woops)
Leos total 9% of the population in mental institutes.
Leos total 17% of the armed forces.
Leos are the least represented sign in the world of art.  (How can that be?)
Leos are more represented in the security world than any other sign.
Leos are least prone to blackmail than any other sign.

Happy Birthdays, Leos!

Leo’s heroine this year is from the past!

She is the fabulous Aug 7, 1884 Billie Burke, who performed Glinda, the good witch of the North, Wizard of OZ (also Leo, premiered Aug 15, 1939)! She said: I am constantly amazed when I talk to young people to learn how much they know about sex and how little about soap. :) She was Ziegfeld’s (Follies) wife, and has a filmography list like you wouldn’t believe!  See her chart and a bit about it!
