Venus goes direct today in Libra! So that’s great for all Librans & Taureans. BUT Mecury who has been in Sagittarius starts retrograde today…and will do so till 7th December. So that’s difficult 3 weeks for Sagittarians, Geminis and Scorpios.
During this retrograde period, Mercury will slip back into Scorpio on 1st December and keep going retro till 7th Dec..
ps. Sagittarians will have it tough between 17th Nov – 1st Dec. Then then it eases up. On 13th December, direct-Mercury re-enters Sagittarius.. But as that’s direct, Saggies get a chance to sort things proactively any issues that surface between next 2 weeks. Just be relieved that because of the Mercury slip back into Scorpio, Saggies don’t get the full 3 weeks of tough-love from this merc-retro period.
Hi all.. way too much hype and partial info (pardon the pun) going on..So here’s the Honest-to-stars full astronomical data (from NASA’s Eclipse expert Fred Espenak) .
Diagram taken from his page.

3 Eclipses are coming, and dare you miss this stellar opportunity to do some life-changing magical work??!! There are 3 eclipses coming over the next 30 days!!! Partial Solar Eclipse on 13th July, Full lUnar Eclipse on 27th July, and another partial Solar Eclipse on 11th August!!
Some magical 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
Manivannan Navasothy – Author, Visionary artist, Scientist, Astrologer & Eclipse Magician – talks about concepts and techniques of doing Eclipse magic. This video has real content that you can use to do eclipse magic straight away.
Would you like to get the Eclipse Magic Workbook, and start practising the magic immediately? No previous knowledge needed. All introductions are covered in earlier chapters, and you can then advance to more involved work in later chapters.
This is a special workshop (first time!) , scheduled to tap into the stellar and highly transformative energies of the set of 3 Eclipses coming up (Partial Solar Eclipse/ 13th July; Full moon Eclipse/27th July; Partial Solar eclipse 11th August). Eclipses usually occur in pairs (A solar & a Lunar one) but this is a rare occasion indeed where there is a set of 3. So it provides a unique opportunity.
I wrote and published a book `Eclipse Magic workbook’ in 2012 – first book of it’s kind (go on do a search on google for anything like that before 2012!). Since then as with the 100th monkey effect, eclipse magic has started to filter into astrological forecasts of other people. I’ve even found people illegally selling some of my eBooks on internet (sad fact of our times!).
So for the first time I am setting up a course of 3-4 hours to talk through and teach basics of Eclipse Magic as I have practised it for almost 2 decades. (I set up these courses twice before, and cancelled it. But have run 2 ritual events on eclipse nights or just before..to give short guidance). This one however will be extensive.
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.
Note: This course will be cancelled in the event of low numbers of booking and any payments returned in such an event.
*Special offer: You may rsvp, and attend the course and pay on the day. However for all who book in advance with fee, a free download link will be sent to my book, `Introduction to Eclipse Magic – A Beginners Guide’
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.

Watch a Video explanation:
You can watch a previous video filmed by Mani, explaining some general work/ principles of Eclipse Magic.
We begin a series of workshops for teaching tools, techniques needed for psychic protection, safety, making sigils, talismans & charms and doing deeper level High Magic rituals.. These are often kept `secret’ or students have to read hundreds of pages of books (Golden Dawn, Keys of Solomon), or end up trawling internet for not so well-thought out blogs. People often copy what they see, without checking for mistakes which then get propagated..and don’t produce the results they want in their magic.. or worse ..the mistakes create magical side-effects that can cause more psychic problems with supernatural beings, entities, spirits. One tiny mistake can easily cause someone many years of problems. (been there done that!)
In this practical workshop, you’ll be taught:
-The Element invoking pentagrams for Air, Fire, Water & Earth (and banishing pentagrams), and explained how they derive from the astrological chart (High Magic).
– Introduced to the system of Planetary Hours, and what day/ what hour precisely to do planetary magical spells for better results.
– System of magic squares (Kameas) and their planetary connections, that further enhance planetary magic; How to systematically create/ draw them for initial invocation of those energies; What metals to use;
– Use of Planetary seals (sigils/ symbols) used to create talismans and charms.
– How to create deeper sigils for specific spell-casting, using Kameas (this is often never explained in online blogs. And neither am I going to blog it).
Unlike our other courses/ workshops, teaching High Magic requires much more organisation & attention, efficiency and practise. Teaching these require clear step by step progress, less chit-chat or social distractions, learning tools that then help with further tools and techniques. So all students will be given a `workbook’ at start of course, for taking notes & doing exercises.
You may RSVP by all means (( meetup link at the bottom of this blog), but please complete payment for a confirmed space. Spaces are kept strictly limited for purpose of teaching subject matters efficiently. After the course, you’ll have access to video tutorials by Tutor for viewing and practice.
(This is an outdoor course, so please attend with proper weather-appropriate clothing, pack lunch, note book, and attend after a good night’s sleep for focus. I do my best to teach in a down to earth, easy to understand manner, but some concepts and work still require good focus and attention on your part. Understanding principles is important in high magical work so that there are no doubts or uncertainties, through which `problems’ can creep in).
Until now, I have kept all my teaching to Wicca, paganism and what i call `low magic’ work that involves chants, candles, cords. However, behind the scenes, when people have contacted me via websites & pages privately, i have done my best to advise them. But as with many things, prevention is better than cure, when you are upto your eye balls in psychic attacks, hexes and entities. So am starting these workshops to help others and share important magical works in psychic protection & magical safety!
We’ve already had 2 Blue Moons this year..one of them an Eclipse too..and it’s been only 3 and a half months since 2018 started! In just under a month (15th May’18) there’s a huge shift about to happen…as the shocking, disruptive and innovative planet Uranus moves from fiery Aries to earth Taurus!
Uranus arrived in Aries back on 12th Match 2011… started to travel through Aries…had a retrograde motion and came almost to the early degrees of Aries by 10th December 2011…and so all that end of the world stuff, all the wars we have seen since then… with hot headed army and political boys playing with weaponised tech-toys.. intensified as we started 2012.. when Uranus started its proper and irreversible motion through Aries! Well..that’s the energy that’s coming to an end now.. (I’ve always said, Aries/Mars is like the fuse that lights the Uranus-fuel of volatile rebelliousness!).
So 15th May onwards, that energy becomes embedded in the luxury-seeking sensual earth Taurus. Definitely less war.. more love (Uranus rules Aquarius.. so I wonder if we’ll return to a new phase of `free love’..and if this is the phase 2 of the `Age of Aquarius’?! You read it here first folks! What do I know? Am just reeling it off intuitively as it comes into my mind).
Then of course we have the triple-set of Eclipses!!
13th July (new moon/partial Solar Eclipse in Cancer), 27th July (Full moon/Total Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius), and 11th August (new moon/ partial solar eclipse in Leo). I’ll be writing about that in extensive details later in a blog ( hey I wrote the first proper book on `Eclipse Magic’ back in 2012! I gotta give Eclipses some proper attention).
The other big shift is on 8th November, when fiery expansive Jupiter..currently travelling through deep & watery Scorpio, leaves Scorpio, and finally…after 12 years, arrives in the fiery Sagittarius.. a sign ruled by Jupiter! Yes Jupiter completes a 12 year zodiac tour of duty and comes home!! And Sagittarians all over the cosmos..okay just all over the World…will throw a party that will last 12 months!! (If you want to get invited to that, now is the time to get on their good side.. though being gregarious and kind and generous…they’ll invite you nearer the time anyway.. But as they are going through the `an elephant never forgets’ phase now.. it might be good to stay on their good side now..!
As for me..? I’m holding grudges this year and throwing a party in November ! 😉 :-p
This is the 2nd and final Blue Moon for this year.. and for several years to come. So let us come together and honour the Lady of the Moon, and do magic at the Heart of London. At the start of March’18, we did a full moon ritual by river Thames, so we are going to do this to complete the magic we started.
No prior knowledge or experiences of wicca or ritual magic is necessary for you to attend this. Just come with an open mind. Be friendly and non-intrusive. Connect with others, and join in the ceremony.
-Preparing space & setting up Altar.
-Run-through- delegate any roles. Brief Q&A.
-Enter Ritual space with reverence.
-Casting magic Circle
-Calling elemental quarters
-Invocations / prayers to Deities (Moon Goddess)
-Cakes & Wine blessing
-Closing & Grounding work
– Feasting, Socialising…
Gather outside the Green area of Tate Modern Gallery (main doors). We’ll walk down to the banks of Thames and do this ceremony. If you are late, just find the steps, walk down to river bank, and join us. We’re usually under the concrete over-hang/ sheltered space. Thames & Tides:
Our rituals tale place on the actual river bank…just few meters away from the water, but in a secluded spot..where there is usually some sand. We organise these Thames-rituals after checking Port of London authority Thames Tide time tables.. to take place at low tide.. (At high tide the entire river bank is under many meters of water!!).
On this evening, lowest tide is at 9.40pm after which point water level begins to rise. Therefore we will get down to river bank and begin ritual at 8.30pm. It takes several hours for tide to come in.. so after ritual.. if we notice the tide turning ..we still have plenty of time to pack up and go up the steps to street level.
The steps are slippery. bank of Thames after previous tide will be full of new things and sharp objects. Take extreme care with your own health & safety. You are responsible for your safety.
**No children allowed**
**Unfortunately the location is not suitable for anyone with walking disabilities**
What to bring:
• Please dress appropriate for weather! (we carry on Rituals regardless of weather).
• Please bring food & drinks to share ( bread & cheese / humus are a good start) and any soft drink/wine that you like to share with others in circle.
• a torchlight is a good idea. Feasting/ sharing food & Drinks:
After the ritual circle on the river bank is completed, some people leave for home. Others stay behind to socialise. We tend to go back up to street level, to the grassy green area outside Tate Modern Gallery and socialise/ share food & drinks.. If it’s raining, we just go to the nearby Pub within sight.
Organiser/ Wiccan High Priest
In January 2018, there were 2 full moons, and the 2nd one being a Blue moon was marked with our woodland ritual in Wimbledon.
If you are experiencing tremors in your life these past few days.. well..it’s just early warning signs of this to come! After all, the deepest sign is getting stirred up by the biggest planet…so to speak..
Planet Jupiter begins it’s annual retrograde motion now (4.45am gmt – 9th march’18 to be exact) and ends retrograde on 10th July’18 (17:02 hrs gmt). This is taking place in the sign of Scorpio.. so expect deeper stuff to be stirred up.. if only for progress and expansion to take place later. Signs directly affected will be Scorpio & Sagittarius. Others will be influenced too (no one escapes the stars!).. especially when the retrograde Jupiter makes aspects with other planets. That I’ll come back to..another time.. -Mani
