Partial Lunar Eclipse – 7th August 2017 – what you’ll see & where

Partial Lunar Eclipse – 7th August 2017 – what you’ll see & where

Hi all.. getting some advance info out for the next Lunar Eclipse (due in August 2017).  Here’s some graphics, based on NASA’s data.

partial-lunar-eclipse-7-august-2017-diagram-c-mani-navasothy-quantumphoenix

The following is a world map showing  where this Partial Lunar Eclipse can be seen from (map by Fred Espenak of NASA).   Some parts of the world will see all of it.  Others will see only parts of it …either during their local moon-rise or moon-set moments.  It’s shown in the map.

Explanations about P1, P4, U1, U4 etc  (scientific terms):

The moment when an eclipse starts/  ends are given special names / tags in astronomy..   (they are moments of time..  ie Universal time/  GMT etc)…  and they are labelled P1, P2, P3, P3  for penumbral shadow sections of the eclipse, and U1, U2, U3, U4 for Umbral shadow parts of the Eclipse.

P1 is when Moon starts to enter the Penumbral shadow of the Earth.  Moon is seen as a reddish colour (aka The Blood moon)…but still fully visible.

U1 is when Moon further enters the darker Umbral shadow of the Earth..  This is where part of the moon will actually go black.. (This one is a partial Lunar Eclipse…So only a part of the full moon will disappear).

U4 is the moment when the moon fully comes out of any Umbral (dark) shadow of the Earth…but some parts of the moon will still be in the lighter penumbral shadow so will be seen as reddish.

P4 is the moment when the moon fully comes out of penumbral shadow..ie ..final contact…  and end of the eclipse!

(note: Sometimes   the eclipse is only Penumbral..  so the data will be just P1, P2, P3, and P4).

About Eclipse-Magic

The stellar forces of Eclipses are comparable to chaotic stormy seas – and knowing when Eclipses take place and what types of personal magic you can do, enables you to tap into those powers to accelerate, course-correct, enhance and empower your life!

Every Year there are at least 2 pairs of Eclipses (Solar & Lunar) – which means you can do Eclipse Magical works 4 or more times in a year! Some works can be done with only 5 minutes of effort, and others take a few weeks or even a few months of preparation. But all create intense changes over longer periods of time in your life.
This innovative, easy to use e-book gives full introductions to the Science, Astronomy, Astrology, Esoterica & Magical core concepts useful to all who like to experiment with Eclipse Magical Techniques. Mani Navasothy has been personally exploring these for over 15 years, and is now sharing his own secret techniques of using Stellar energies for Balancing, Cleansing, Powering Up, as well as the highly specialist methods of using Dragon Magic & Portals and Cosmic Gateways.

Isidias Navigatum- Goddess Isis Blessing of the Fleet Ceremony 2017 (Richmond)

This annual ceremony was held at the start of the Spring time in Ancient Egypt, to gain the blessings of Goddess Isis upon the ships and boats (Fleet) – so that they may go forth, find commerce, resources and wealth and bring them back. You will have heard the saying, `waiting for my ship to come in’ – a saying that indicates a person waiting for his /her good fortunes to arrive. Well, in order for ships to come in they must first be sent out – and with blessings and good plans.

We are adapting the old ceremony to suit the times and place we now live it! In this ceremony, we will bless the `fleet’ and place our hopes and wishes of good fortune and success in the ventures we are starting as Spring approaches. We then set the ships to sail (some will be sent.. other larger models will be pulled back, so as not to litter river Thames).

Fee:   suggested Donation £3 towards our costs and continued running of these rituals. (thank you).

Ritual outline : A statue of the Goddess will be carried to the water side. Women may offer mirrors so that Goddess Isis may see her beauty. We will pour milk on the banks  then sprinkle the statue with precious perfumes & flowers. As the final part of the ritual, a small replica boat(s) will be filled with spices and other magical items,  and placed in the river as an offering to the Goddess Isis. Smaller paper boats may also be placed in the river and let go off..

Bring your own small boats!   Be it paper boats or small scale models – to either sail them on the river Thames afterwards, or to symbolically place them on our altar during ritual, to gain the blessings of Isis for your own ventures ahead in 2017.

Practical  details

1.30pm:   I will be walking through  Richmond Train station and collect anyone waiting by 1.30pm   (just by coffee shop inside the main foyer!).   We’ll walk together to the ritual spot by the river.. and begin set up by 2pm. Ceremony will soon after that..  `at the end of the ceremony our `ships’ will be set sail around followed by Feasting.    We expect to be back at station by 5pm .. and visit a cafe or pub to socialise (in warmth).

**Please wear absolutely sensible shoes, warm & water poof cloths** ..  Our rituals go ahead whatever the weather.. and how ever many or few people attend. We do them for serious magical purpose!   So no need to double check ..if its snowing or  blowing storms! Just turn up and take a chance..  Magic is supposed to be wild and tied with nature!!

All are Welcome to attend these . Do contact us and contribute with your creativity, knowledge & magic for these new explorations..

Gathering Format: 

Our Gatherings normally take the following form

a) Meeting at the Richmond Station, at appointed place, and then walking together to the selected Ritual area.

b) Pre-Ritual Social & setting up altar / getting into ritual cloths and explanation of ritual (delegating some ritual roles to people who are interested).

c) Ritual

d) Feasting & Social

e) Taking down altar, packing & tidy-up, and departures (Individuals make their own way back).

*Some people leave as soon as Ritual is complete. Others stay longer to enjoy socials & bonding with our friends.

Please bring Food & drinks to share. It can be a bottle of wine, soft drinks, hot drinks (in a flask), short eats, snacks, bread, butter, cheese, humus, cakes, salads, pasta and so on.

Privacy/Photos :

Gaslighting: Know It and Identify It to Protect Yourself (psychology)

What’s Gaslighting?  A manipulative tactics employed by  a person, organisation or entity to gain more power!   Here’s a copy of article blog  found, written by Stephanie Sarkis Ph.D. Stephanie Sarkis Ph.D. (link at the bottom).-Mani


Gaslighting is a tactic of behavior in which a person or entity, in order to gain more power, makes a victim question their reality. It works a lot better than you may think. Anyone is susceptible to gaslighting. It is a common technique of abusers, dictators, narcissists, and cult leaders. It is done slowly, so the victim doesn’t realize how much they’ve been brainwashed. In the movie Gaslight (1944), a man manipulates his wife to the point where she thinks she is losing her mind.

People that gaslight use the following techniques:

1. They tell you blatant lies.

You know it’s an outright lie. Yet they are telling you this lie with a straight face. Why are they so blatant? Because they’re setting up a precedent. Once they tell you a huge lie, you’re not sure if anything they say is true. Keeping you unsteady and off-kilter is the goal.

2. They deny they ever said something, even though you have proof.

You know they said they would do something…you know you heard it. But they out and out deny it. It makes you start questioning your reality – maybe they never said that thing. And the more they do this, the more you question your reality and start accepting theirs.

3. They use what is near and dear to you as ammunition.

They know how important your kids are to you, they know how important your identity is to you. So that is one of the first things they attack. If you have kids, they tell you that you did a disservice by having those children. They will tell you that if only you weren’t _____________, you’d be a worthy person. They attack the foundation of your being.

4. They wear you down over time.

This is one of the insidious things about gaslighting – it is done gradually, over time. A lie here, a lie there, a snide comment every so often…and then it starts ramping up. Even the brightest, most self-aware people can be sucked into gaslighting – it is that effective. It’s the “frog in the frying pan” analogy – the heat is turned up slowly, so the frog never realizes what hit it.

5. Their actions do not match their words.

When dealing with a person or entity that gaslights, look at what they are doing rather than what they are saying. What they are saying means nothing. It is just talk. What they are doing is the issue.

6. They throw in positive reinforcement to confuse you.

This person or entity that is cutting you down, telling you that you don’t have value – is now praising you for something you did. This adds an additional sense of uneasiness. You think, “Well maybe they aren’t so bad.” Yes, they are. This is a calculated attempt to keep you off-kilter – and again, question your reality. Also look at what you were praised for – it is probably something that served the gaslighter.

7. They know confusion weakens people.

Gaslighters know that all people like having a sense of stability and normalcy. Their goal is to uproot this and make you constantly question everything. And humans’ natural tendency is to look to the person or entity that will help you feel more stable – and that happens to be the gaslighter.

8. They project.

They are a drug user or a cheater – yet they are constantly accusing you of that. This is done so repetitively that you start trying to defend yourself – and are distracted from the gaslighter’s own behavior.

9. They try to align people against you.

Gaslighters are masters at manipulating and finding the people they know will stand by them no matter what – and they use these people against you. They will make comments such as “____________ knows that you’re not right”, or “___________ knows you’re useless too”. Keep in mind it does not mean that these people actually said these things. The gaslighter is a constant liar. When the gaslighter uses this tactic it makes you feel like you don’t know who to trust or turn to – and that leads you right back to the gaslighter. And that’s exactly what the want. Isolation gives them more control.

10. They tell you or others that you are crazy.

This is one of the most effective tools of the gaslighter – because it’s dismissive. The gaslighter knows if they question your sanity, people will not believe you when you tell them the gaslighter is abusive or out-of-control. It’s a master technique.

11. They tell you everyone else is a liar.

By telling you that everyone else (your family, the media) is a liar, it again makes you question your reality. You’ve never known someone with the audacity to do this, so they must be right, right? No. It’s a manipulation technique. It makes people turn more to the gaslighter for the “correct” information – which isn’t correct information at all.

The more you are aware of these techniques, the quicker you can identify them before you fall into the gaslighter’s trap.
