Apparently there will be a solar eclipse this week. If someone knows the exact date, please tell me because I want to watch! I have seen lunar and solar eclipses before, and while they were definitely cool, I never noticed any fear or worry surrounding them. Apparently, the eclipse that will occur this week is supposed to be unique according to astrologers. The article, however, does not explain why this solar eclipse will cause tragic events and not all the other ones. Have there been any similar reactions in the recent past by religious/spiritual groups in anticipating solar/lunar eclipses or other natural astronomical events? Perhaps I was just too young the last time to notice any global catastrophe horoscopes during the last solar eclipse.
