Astrology part 2: Jupiter enters Scorpio!

Major shift coming up (astrology forecast):

Jupiter enters Scorpio - Astrology forecast by Mani Navasothy

Jupiter is changing sign (after a year of being in Libra) and moving into Scorpio. That’s going to have a major impact on Scorpios & Sagittarians.. Librans will have enjoyed the positive influences, gifts and blessings that Jupiter (higher benefic) brings for a whole year.. And now it’s the turn for Scorpios to enjoy those benefits for the next 12 months ūüôā

As for Sagittarius, ruled by Jupiter- they will have felt the energies and qualities of Libra in their lives..striving for balance, harmony, beauty. But as Jupiter enters Scorpio…weelll.. Sagittarians are going to get all intense, go through some deep transformations, will be sorting out their powerbase, and generally gain authority and be in positions of power.. (if all that Saturn influences for the past 3 and a half years has been duly processed by them).

A little warning to others.. You know how you always are wary of Scorpios.. ? ūüėČ Well.. for the next year, give Sagittarians the same cautious respect..or you’ll find yourself in complex power & manipulative games you can not hope to win with them.. unless of course you are a Scorpio that is :-p

Astrology forecast 1 (squares coming up)

Astro-Alert for next few days!!!

We have a number of squares taking place..and it may prove to be initially stressful..So just hold it together. Squares generally create energies and influences that can only be resolved by taking action, rather than holding it in.

Here’s a quick note on these.
1. Mercury in Libra -squares- Pluto in Capricorn (affects Gemini, Libra, Scorpio, Capricorn).
2. Sun in Libra-squares-Pluto in Capricorn (affects Leo, Libra, Scorpio, Capricorn).
3. Mars in Virgo- squares-Saturn in Sagittarius (affects Aries, Virgo, Capricorn, sagittarius).

Although these zodiac signs are directly affected.. (because that’s where the planet is currently transiting through or those are the signs that are ruled by said planets), generally everyone is influenced by any aspects.. First rule of *astrology – everyone is influenced.

astro

You’ll need to be aware of the following areas / aspects of your everyday lives..Bear in mind, in general,
-Mercury rules the mind & communications;
-Pluto is scorpionic and governs transformation, sex, intensity, power & control;
-Sun governs our whole being, soul, energy, health;
-Mars affects energy, masculine issues, new ventures, fights/ wars; and
-Saturn gives us hard lessons, governs long term stability, authority issues, shadows, fears, limitations.

*(ps. am not entering into debates here about if astrology is real or not.. That’s for you to decide..and discus elsewhere. I write these for those who belief and follow it..and can do with some advance notice).

There is also a major shift coming.. Jupiter is changing sign (after a year of being in Libra) and moving into Scorpio. More on that in another post:

Astro-Potential is High! (forecast on Venus, Sun, Mercury,Jupiter & Saturn transits this weekend)

Hi all.. following the Solar Eclipse, I’ve decided to be more regular with my astrology forecast blogs…starting with this one. ¬†No long spiels…no fancy graphics..Just simple words of suggestions ūüôā ¬† here goes:

Yesterday, ¬†retrograding Saturn went DIRECT in Sagittarius. ¬† No doubt Capricorns (ruled by Saturn) and Sagittarians (where Saturn is transiting now) will be very relieved to hear it. ¬†After all it’s been going on since early Apri’17. ¬†This saturn-direct is a very good news indeed for all ..and especially for those 2 signs. If you’ve felt held in place and as if your nose was rubbed against matters you rather not have given attention to.. ¬†and learn what needs learning.. ¬†you’ll now feel released to forge ahead forward with inner strength and stability gained over last 4-5 months.

Today ¬†(26th August’17) Venus (love, romance, luxury, arts & beauty) has arrived in the flamboyant sign of Leo (which recently hosted 2 consecutive new moons and a total Solar Eclipse to boot!);

This evening Sun conjuncts retrograde-Mercury (in Virgo) – which might be a sharpness of the mind and welcome relief under the otherwise mercury-retrograde period – a case of mind & self being as one.

Tomorrow there’s a very good Jupiter-Sextile-Saturn taking place – powers of widening horizons bending with long term stabilising influences of Saturn (added factor of Saturn actually being in the sign of Sagittarius which is ruled by Jupiter).

All in all.. it’s gotta be a good few days..after the recent disruptions..especially of the venus-squaring-with Uranus disruption that probably clouded everyone on all day Thursday?!

Now is a good time to catch up on roads not taken..and checking or laying foundations…for better futures.

be brave…make those decisions you are stalling on.. and take those steps…!!

Total SOLAR ECLIPSE- Monday 21st August 2017 (astronomy data & astrology charts & Eclipse Magic book offer)

We’ve already had the partial Lunar Eclipse a week and a half ago, and the counterpart .. ¬†the TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE occurs on this coming monday 21st August 2017. ¬†(Eclipses always occur in pairs, separated by 2 weeks, and there are on average 2 pairs every year..).

I‚Äôve downloaded the detailed Eclipse-diagram ¬†from NASA website (Eclipse diagram/data (c) Fred Espenak ‚Äď link at the bottom).

Total Solar Eclipse (21st August 2017) Details:

How long is this Eclipse?

Important point to remember is that, at any one location on the Earth, the actual Solar Eclipse is only visible for few minutes at most.   BUT it will be seen at different parts of the world at various times..  and at each part ..for slightly different duration.

Greatest Eclipse and its duration:

This is when the largest amount of the Sun is covered by the Moon.. ¬†and ¬†takes place at 18:25 hrs ¬†(Universal Time= GMT), and will be visible for 2min40sec, from a point in USA (Lat=26’58N. ¬†Long=87’40 W).

Penumbral start & end of Eclipse:

There are two types of shadows formed by the Moon when it comes in front of the Sun..  ie the shadow that Earth Passes through.  Umbral shadow is the darkest part, where from under it, we see nothing of the Sun.  Penumbral shadow is a more lighter part, and we will see the Sun through it..

  • P1 : The Penumbral part of the eclipse will be first visible at ¬†15:46 hrs ¬† UT ¬†(seen from pacific ocean at Sunrise).
  • P4: ¬†The penumbral part of the Eclipse will be last visible at 21:04 hrs UT (seen from South America ‚Äď before night falls locally there)

The Umbral  Eclipse data:

This is when the Sun is actually visibly blocked by a dark disc (Moon coming between us and the Sun).  In scientific  notations, we give this 4 sets of readings..  when it first starts (first contact/ start of Umbral Eclipse; 2nd contact;  when Eclipse begins to end; when final umbral eclipse fully ends.

  • U1 : ¬†16:48 hrs UT
  • U2 : ¬†16:49 hrs UT
  • Greatest Eclipse : ¬†18:25 hrs UT
  • U3 : ¬†20:01 hrs UT
  • U4 : ¬†20:02 hrs UT

 NASA diagrams created/provided  by Fred Espanak, where all this data has been taken from:

Total Solar Eclipse 20th August 2017 - NASA diagram by Fred Espenak

Gif animation showing the visibility & times of the Total Solar Eclipse 21st August 2017 (by Fred Espenak of NASA)

Note:  The small dot at the centre is the exact location where the Total Eclipse can be seen at a particular time (Universal Time = GMT).   The larger grey/blue area shows the area from which penumbral eclipse can be seen at any particular time.  The dark sections of the Earth (on left and right) show the night time for those places.

Time: Remember all times are UT (Universal Time which is equivalent to Greenwich mean time).  so you must work out local time.  For example the dot first appears to the West of USA  (in Pacific Ocean area)  around 17:00hrs GMT..  This is actually sun-rise/ morning time for those who first see the Eclipse (if they were in the Pacific Ocean).

SE2017Aug21T

Visibility data for UK:

From these diagrams, you can ascertain that for us in United Kingdom, about 10% of this Eclipse will be visible around 19:00hrs GMT.

Below is a general astrological chart I have created to show the positions of other planets & Zodiac signs, during the exact moment of this Total Solar Eclipse (Greatest Eclipse at 18:25hrs UT).

How are the Stars treating you? (astrology)

How are the starry Heavens treating you?
 
We’ve already had the Aquarian partial Lunar Eclipse (7th Aug) & Perseid meteor showers (12th Aug). A total Solar Eclipse (in Leo) is coming on 21st August, and we are now 3 days into Mercury retrograde (started Sunday 13th Aug) in the sign of Leo..and will continue till 5th September’17.
 
Already I have witnessed quite a lot of energy & activation, disruptions & disharmony!
Am mindful that when major planetary transits bring about these sort of energies, they are merely pointing to areas in our lives that require willful attention & decluttering, and ultimately deconstructions of old Towers!
 
Only then can we move better towards goals, aims and fulfilment of our destinies, set by a blend of Fates & Free Will.

Annular Solar Eclipse- full details – Sunday 26th February 2017 (and deciphering scientific diagram)

As you know we’ve already had the penumbral Lunar Eclipse a week and a half ago, and the counterpart .. ¬†the Solar Eclipse will be occurring in a few days(Eclipses always occur in pairs, separated by 2 weeks).

I’ve downloaded the detailed Eclipse-diagram of visibility / location data from NASA website (Eclipse diagram/data (c) Fred Espenak – link at the bottom).

Ring of Fire & Diamond ring :

Annular Solar Eclipse is when the Moon eclipses the Sun (as viewed from Earth by us).. ¬†but moon does not fully cover the Sun. ¬†So at the greatest Eclipse, the Moon covers the central disc of the Sun..but there is a ring of Sun showing around it – the so called Ring of Fire. ¬†During the progress of this Eclipse (while its getting into the `greatest Eclipse’ position slowly..and also afterwards, there is also an effect called the Diamond Ring .. that can be seen on the edges of the moon.. ¬†(called Baily’s Beads- caused by light shining through valleys on the Moon’s surface).

 

 

 

Annular Solar Eclipse (26Feb2017) Details:

How long is this Eclipse?

Important point to remember is that, at any one location on the Earth, the actual Solar Eclipse is only visible for few minutes at most.   BUT it will be seen at different parts of the world at various times..  and at each part ..for slightly different duration.

Maximum Eclipse duration:

This happens around 13:16hrs UT, ¬†and for a duration of ¬†1 min 22 seconds.. ¬†and will be visible only for those at South pacific ocean…off the coast of Chile! ¬†(Note: Although the Sun is Eclipsed for the longest at this point, it is not covered the most amount at this point. ¬†That happens later..but for a shorter duration).

Greatest Eclipse and its duration:

This is when the largest amount of the Sun is covered by the Moon..  and  takes place at 14:53 hrs  (Universal Time), and will be visible for 44 seconds, from a point in South Atlantic Ocean.   (note: sometimes the Greatest Eclipse happens for lesser duration).

Penumbral start & end of Eclipse:

There are two types of shadows formed by the Moon when it comes in front of the Sun..  ie the shadow that Earth Passes through.  Umbral shadow is the darkest part, where from under it, we see nothing of the Sun.  Penumbral shadow is a more lighter part, and we will see the Sun through it..

  • P1 : The Penumbral part of the eclipse will be first visible at ¬†12:10hrs ¬† UT ¬†(seen from South pacific ocean…off the coast of Chile as Sun rises for them locally).
  • P4: ¬†The penumbral part of the Eclipse will be last visible at 17:36 hrs UT (seen from Africa – Zambia/ ¬†Botswana – before night falls locally there)

The Umbral  Eclipse data:

This is when the Sun is actually visibly blocked by a dark disc (Moon coming between us and the Sun).  In scientific  notations, we give this 4 sets of readings..  when it first starts (first contact/ start of Umbral Eclipse; 2nd contact;  when Eclipse begins to end; when final umbral eclipse fully ends.

  • U1 : 13:15 hrs UT
  • U2 : 13:16 hrs UT
  • Greatest Eclipse : ¬†14:53 hrs UT
  • U3 : 16:30 hrs UT
  • U4 : 16:31 hrs UT

Here are the NASA diagrams created/provided  by Fred Espanak, where all this data has been taken from:

Partial Lunar Eclipse ‚Äď 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.

useful astronomical data (from NASA):

  • Penumbral Eclipse duration : from 16:50hrs to 21:50hrs (BST).
  • Umbral eclipse duration: 18:22hrs to 20:18hrs (BST).
  • Greatest Eclipse is at 19:20hrs BST.
  • Ecliptic conjunction : 19:11hrs BST.

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).

———————————————–

This is a special Full moon Ritual, scheduled to tap into the energy of partial Lunar Eclipse of 7th August 2017.

(please note: previously there was a workshop scheduled but it has been now changed to a ritual).

No previous experience of Eclipse magical working necessary. Eclipse Magic rituals are quite unique and separate ..and use practical tools (some modern ones such as a plasma-wand), astrological symbols/ names, some transpersonal work and magical visualisations.  These are all uniquely explored by Mani for many years (almost 20 years).

‚Äʬ†Date: ¬†Monday 7th August 2017

fee: £2.  

* this is the evening of the Full Moon/ partial Lunar Eclipse.  We will be setting some specific intentions to work the energies of the coming partial lunar Eclipse (in Aquarius).

useful astronomical data (from NASA):

‚Äʬ†Penumbral Eclipse duration : from 16:50hrs to 21:50hrs (BST). ¬†Umbral eclipse duration: 18:22hrs to 20:18hrs (BST). Greatest Eclipse is at 19:20hrs BST. ¬† ¬†Ecliptic conjunction : 19:11hrs BST.

‚Äʬ†Lowest tide: 21:20hrs (0.7m). [from Port of London site].

TLC Full Moon Ritual by Thames - summer 2017- lunar eclipse 7aug

 

Plan/ Times:

Your personal work ¬†(suggested ¬†7pm – 7.20pm)—————- :

Those interested in catching/attuning to the moment of `greatest Eclipse’ ¬†may wish to arrive early..find a quiet spot and do your own personal meditative work. ¬†You may also be able to find a quiet spot by river.. ¬†though if it’ a very sunny warm day.. ¬†other Londoners will be out and about by Thames…! ¬† As long as you personally are able to sit and ignore outside noise/ ¬†distractions..you can attune within. ¬† ¬† I suggest you aim for personal meditative work between 7.00pm – 7:20pm.

Our group work ¬†(scheduled ¬† 7.30pm to 10pm) ——————-

‚Äʬ†7.30pm- 7.45pm ¬†: ¬†Meeting outside main entrance (seats) by Tate Modern Gallery

‚ÄĘ 7.45pm- 8.15pm : ¬†Go down to Thames & ¬†help set up altar area.

‚ÄĘ 8.15pm – 9.50pm ¬†: Main ceremony (leading into feasting/ social).¬†–¬†This will be the formal wicca circle set up and held on the river banks. ¬†It will still be taking place within the penumbral duration of the Eclipse.

‚Äʬ†10pm- 10.30pm ¬†: Socialising back at top¬†– the Green grass area at front of Tate Modern Gallery.¬†¬†

Astrology: Full Moon T-Square on 12th January 2017

Hi all….in case you are all wondering about this great big T-square in the sky.. here are the details . Full moon at 11.34am GMT (in Moon’s own sign of Cancer, with Sun in opposite sign..Capricorn). Add to this the planet Jupiter in Libra that is squaring The Sun and squaring The Moon.. (in fact the full moon occurs after the squares have culminated)..

12jan2017-t-square-sun-jupiter-full-moon-c-mani-navasothy

Normally the day/ night before the full moon is quite intense and magical for many people.. a case of the personal `cauldron reaching boil’ ..energies rising to the surface.. culminating etc.. And as it’s actually an opposition (Sun opposing Moon *is* what produces the Full moon after all)…energies are pulling us in opposite directions.. (It’s why full moons are said to bring out the crazy side of things!)

Add to that the effect of the 2nd biggest stellar object of the Solar system – Jupiter – forming squares which create a lot of dynamic energies… (following oppositions, squares are the 2nd most stressful aspect any 2 planets can form!).. you can see why the last 24 hours and indeed the hours leading upto this T-square is being highly tense, dynamic, stressful and probably creative and productive too ūüôā

By tomorrow evening (thursday evening) though the moon may seem bright and full in the sky, the `energies’ of this T-square will be slowly reducing..

Signs deeply affected:
Leo (ruled by Sun), Cancer (ruled by moon), Sagittarius (ruled by Jupiter), Capricorn (Sun is here now), Cancer (double-whammy- moon is here now), Libra (Jupiter is here now).

Of course we are all affected.. because at least 2-3 parts of each of our natal chart will be influenced by these planetary aspects.
