Eclipses That Shaped History: Part 2

Eclipses That Shaped History: Part 2

In episode 425 astrologers Chris Brennan and Nick Dagan Best do a followup episode on the astrology of eclipses that coincided with major events in history, where we share more examples from around the world.

We open the episode by reviewing the main discovery that we made in the last episode, which is that 1) important events in history tend to take place around the time of eclipses, and 2) people born near an eclipse tend to have some of the most important events in their lives coincide with eclipses.

We also review the operative range or time frame for eclipses, and what we found is that important events tend to take place within around a week of an eclipse, either before or after.

After that we review some recent events that coincided with the eclipses that just took place in October 2023, and then move on to talking about eclipses in the history of many different countries around the world, with many examples sent in by listeners of the podcast after the last episode.

In this episode we tried to cover more countries and regions that we didn’t cover in the last episode, and also add some additional examples we had overlooked in areas we had covered previously.
