2020 Lunar Eclipse at Uluru

penumbral lunar eclipseEclipses come in pairs – we last had an eclipse – on Christmas Day in many places in the world – on 26 December which was very unusual for a variety of reasons. A penumbral eclipse of the Moon occurs on Saturday 11 January – at Uluru – which is the solar chakra of the Earth. At maximum eclipse, 90% of the Moon’s disc will be partially shaded by the Earth, which will cause a slight shadow gradient across the face of the Moon.

About Christmas 2019

Annular Solar EclipseChristmas 2019 brings in its wake the Summer Solstice (in the Southern Hemisphere) and an eclipse – in some parts of the world – on Christmas Day itself! An unusual event. This will be an annular solar eclipse with a ring of fire around the Sun when the moon covers the Sun (called totality).

Mercury Retrograde

Planet MercuryMercury will be retrograde from October 31st to November 20th. It will begin its retrograde motion in Scorpio and then enter Libra on November 7th. When Mercury, or any other planet for that matter, is retrograde, its energy becomes intensified. It can be compulsive, obsessive, or urgent. You can think of the retrograde phase of a planet’s transit to be like a cup overflowing.

Full Moon – October 2019

Full MoonOctober’s Full Moon occurs on 14 October, with Ashwini Purnima taking place on 13-14 October. This month’s Full Moon in Pisces – a water sign – calls to explore the depths of water, feeling, emotion with movement towards self-understanding – of our true nature – the Self of all that is. On this occasion of Full Moon we also observe Valmiki Jayanti (birth of Valmiki) and Mirabai Jayanti (birth of Mirabai).

Notes on the September Equinox, 2019

Image of equinoxThere are two equinoxes every year – in September and March – when the sun shines directly on the equator and the length of day and night is nearly equal. Seasons are opposite on either side of the Equator, so the equinox in September is also known as the autumnal (fall) equinox in the Northern Hemisphere, and is considered the first day of Fall. In the Southern Hemisphere, it is known as the Vernal (spring) equinox and marks the first day of spring.

Full Moon August 2019

Full MoonThe Full Moon of 15 August occurs outside the prevailing Kaala Sarp Yoga (serpent of time) bringing a sense of freedom and vitality that has been absent for some days since the chains of Kaal Sarpa began. This is a time of a dual sense of energy yet chains of responsibility are somewhat dragging on us within. It is the time of light emerging from the Central Star of our galaxy, that star known as Sagittarius A.

Lunar Eclipse and Full Moon July 2019

The Full Moon of Wednesday 17 July is immediately preceded by an eclipse which ends minutes before the Moon is 100% full; this conjunction we call a Super Full Moon. The eclipse maximum (in the Southern Hemisphere) is at 07:30:00 am; the full Moon is at 07:38:00 am. The Moon sets at 7:33:00 am, somewhat linking this to the experience of the recent solar eclipse in South America, when the Sun set immediately after eclipse totality. Compounding this situation is a preponderance of retrograde, sandhi and debilitated planets. As this is a time when people can be hurt by our thoughts, words and actions, it behooves us to be speaking softly and sweetly to one and all.
