Aloha Alchemists (and Magicians),
We are in the doorway of the total lunar eclipse which happens on the full moon next Tuesday (in the US). The eclipse makes the full moon “ten times” more powerful than normal. It will be followed in two weeks by a solar eclipse on the New Moon. The whole period of intense cooking begins two-three weeks before the actual event and extends beyond it the same length. Then there is integration time for months afterward.
The central window is, as with all astro events, three days long- the day before, the day of, and the day after.
Personally, I feel there will be a tremendous cleansing/purging at the Full and a new beginning of some kind at the New. I have already perceived some significant shifts in the field this week.
Breathe Deep and Smile to the Incoming Energies,

… but I want good weather ideally. (Freeform will confirm at the moment it’s not looking like I’ll get it…) I want to do a variation of an old candle spell where you take earth from the park and do some blessing things with it and then return it to where you got it. It’s a really nice thing to do and I always get good luck after I do it. I guess if it’s like today I work on the earth back at my house or something. 🙂

Thanks for alerting me.
I went to the NASA website (see below) to get more
information about it.
I took particular note of the “umbral magnitude” value
for this upcoming eclipse, as it is the largest value
in the 2001-2010 table.
Then a solar eclipse a couple of weeks later? Wow.
Oh, don’t forget that soon after that is the equinox!
Time for some fun!

It’s been alternating between sun and thunderstorms where I am,
where are you located?
Your idea sounds kind of cool . . .
Now I have to figure out what I’m going to do.
Given my past experiences, I’m going to have to choose carefully 🙂

What could possibly go wrong?

I would have never guessed that you’re British!
How many times have you visited Stonehenge?

I went to stonehenge once years ago, before I was really into any of this stuff. Now I’m actually planning a visit to the Rollright stones in Oxfordshire later this year. jAugust 25, 2007 at 4:01 pm #23916
cool website. I checked this program I have called “starry night backyard” that tracks sun, moon and star positions through basically any time frame (10,000 BC to future) and it says that from the pacific time zone, the full lunar eclipse will take place from 2:50 am to 4:20 am. I don’t know exactly how accurate this is though. just taking note that it will be at different times depending on your geographical location.August 25, 2007 at 4:13 pm #23918
2:50am-4:20am Pacific Daylight Time
is the same as
5:50am-7:20am Eastern Daylight Time,
so it looks like your program is pretty accurate and
in agreement with what is on the website.
Sounds like a useful program . . .
