In the energies of a New Moon 9° Virgo Solar Eclipse
Trump went to Mexico today after being invited by President Nieto at the last minute. Everything about the meeting was really weird and has everyone second guessing ... but that seems to be the name of the game in this election. It was a plus for Trump as we await his immigration speech tonight in AZ. CNN report

The end of summer brings huge change ... often focusing on relationships. It's not easy to end a relationship no matter what the circumstances. It's particularly more difficult for the person who wants to stay, while the other person either seeks freedom or is already involved with somebody else. Leaving a relationship brings up issues from failed prior relationships. One may think they've healed, but have they? This time of the year also reunites couples who have not been together for decades but found each other again through social media or another way. This may have to do with bringing closure, or for some couples, creating something new. The New Moon 9° Virgo Solar Eclipse and Mercury Retrograde stir things up for resolution.
In the news ... Anthony Weiner's wife and Hillary Clinton's aide - Huma Abedin officially left him after three incidents of sexting. At the time of the first scandal in 2011, I knew he would never change and it was time for her to move on though she was pregnant and probably hoping things could work out. Sabotaging a relationship must be looked at from more than the events that unfold, but what set them in motion in the first place.

Annular Solar Eclipse over New Mexico APOD - August 31, 2016
Explaining the image above ... In 2012 an annular eclipse of the Sun was visible over a narrow path that crossed the northern Pacific Ocean and several western US states. In an annular solar eclipse, the Moon is too far from the Earth to block out the entire Sun, leaving the Sun peeking out over the Moon's disk in a ring of fire. To capture this unusual solar event, an industrious photographer drove from Arizona to New Mexico to find just the right vista. After setting up and just as the eclipsed Sun was setting over a ridge about 2.5 kilometers away, a person unknowingly walked right into the shot. Although grateful for the unexpected human element, the photographer never learned the identity of the silhouetted interloper. It appears likely, though, that the person is holding a circular device that would enable them to get their own view of the eclipse. The shot was taken at sunset on 2012 May 20 at 7:36 pm local time from a park near Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA. Thursday another annular solar eclipse becomes visible, this time along a path crossing Africa and Madagascar.

We are two months away from the 2016 US Presidential Election - Donald Trump vs. Hillary Clinton - the two most despised candidates in US presidential history. Both are recognized as self-serving, liars, and emotionally unstable .. and yet here we are about to elect one of them to run/ruin the country and the world.
My grandson Giovanni, a High School Junior in Gilbert, AZ., turned 16 today. As with the rest of the world, political themes and the future of the nation are often discussed/debated in and out of school. Vanni is part of Generation Z - (starting birth years ranging from the mid-1990s to mid-2000s and ending birth years ranging from the late 2000s to mid-2020s).
Vanni seems to have his mother's flair for art as he drew the pictures below. Though he fears what Hillary will do to the country - he feels the same about Trump. Imagine being 16 - watching the world around you change as fast at the tech (his field of study) - and wondering what life will be like when he becomes a man. Is Generation Z programmed to tolerate and accept the old ways or to fight for change as have generation before to no avail? History repeats itself to perpetuate its design.
