Solar eclipse

Post by Lotus » Mon Sep 10, 2007 2:02 pm

I've been made aware that there will be a solar eclipse early Tuesday morning on September 11th. By my calender, this is to occur around 8:30 ish am. Like the lunar eclipse, will this be visible to North America?

All of my horroscopes (ones that I read) suggest that the morning will be buzzed with energy and there will be a tendancy towards decadance.
I'm trying to decide if I'd like to harness this energy in some way. Actually, I will be at work by that time.

Does anyone else have any plans?

Solar eclipses are tricksy. You often can't see them from different parts of the globe. Unfortunately, this eclipse is only a partial, and will only be visible from Central and South America.

I heard mainly visible from far South America.
I'm living in the Shadows and the Night,
Wrapped in warm darkness, safe and sure.
My Path shines by the Moon's fragile light,
It frees my Mind and keeps my Heart pure.

I knew it was happening... but I couldn't find out where. :lol: I know it wasn't here... It was supposed to be @ 8:07 am according to my Witches Calander. I probally won't use the energy... It's not happening here, and I prefer using what I'm witnessing in Ritual.

On a side note... What are you guys doing for the Equinox later this month? :-D

Pampering myself, cooking copious amounts of food, and celebrating harvest time and the change of the seasons.

It's 4 days before my Bday, hence the pampering ^_^ Methinks spa, the only time I will actually spend money on this sort of thing.

Ahh the change of the seasons... I love it.

I will be attending Pagan Pride Day here in Columbus, Ohio. This year I get to enjoy it....no teaching or being responsible for stuff. ;) :-D

Last year sucked because we held it in the extreme cold of October and I had to be there the whole time. I also had to lug around ritual stuff for both the ancestor's table and my own workshops.

I haven't even thought that far ahead.

I think I need to spend some time preparing for winter and slowig my brain and body down a little. If I go into the darker seasons with this much pent up energy I might go a little crazy (Well crazier)

Speaking of which... #-o I have to see if Calgary's having one this year. We used to take over a hallway at the university, but I haven't seen any signs up or anything this year. I was really hoping to go. I'll look into it.

As for my Equinox, me and Joe are going to see if we can get back to nature for a short ritual... not certain how possible that's going to be though. My friend (the one who doesn't care what RELIGION I am so long I don't believe in MAGIC #-o :roll: ) is having a birthday party for her son, and I of course must go, otherwise the poor child will grow up without books. (Yes, I was the only person at this kids baby shower to bring a book of bedtime stories for him. Now it's his first birthday and I'm certain it's going to be a repeat of the shower :-? ). So me and my SO will either end up going before or after... just not sure which yet...[/quote]

I will be cleansing my house and reworking the wards for the dark half of the year.

I've changed the anchorings for the outside wards...instead of one lock stone that has a crystal for each element (one large stepping stone)...I made four smaller ones (ZIplock containers at a cup size makes good molds for small stepping stones, btw) that each represent one element. Placed them around the perimeter of the yard in their appropriate directions...but I haven't activated them yet.

I want to cleanse the house first, and then I'll activate them with the winter wards.

Where I live, the winter winds tend to pull spirits from their usual "haunts" and sends them in every which way. Most of these guys don't like being picked up and tossed around like a leaf, so if they can catch hold of your house, they can cause some serious negativity. So, I have to have stronger wards to basically bounce them away.
