Today is 31st of March 2013.. where British Summer time begins.. But more interesting is the number.. 31-3-13 which has a nice symmetry to it.. and where there is symmetry there is magic…and when it happens to have 13 on it.. it’s got Witches written all over it 🙂 Or so I think..!
I began this year by calling it The Year of the Witch.. for several reasons.. (see my blog`year of the Witch‘)
Today is one of those special dates.. Believe it if you dare.. 🙂
For astrologers and magical practitioners, the lunar occultations present a a valuable opportunity – especially for Eclipse Magicians! (read about Eclipse magic here. )
So here are the actual dates of Lunar Occultations in the year 2013.
Date Occultation (ie the planet eclipsed by the moon)
22 January -Jupiter
18 Feb -Jupiter
25th April -Lunar Eclipse
9 May -Mercury
9 May -Mars
10 May -Solar Eclipse
8 July -Mercury ( also New Moon)
8 Sept -Venus (will be a beautiful sight with Venus & Crescent moon).
3 Nov -Solar Eclipse
3 Nov -Mercury
1 Dec -Mercury
1 Dec -Saturn
29 Dec -Saturn
Notes: In 2012, there were quite a few Occultations of Jupiter, but in 2013, there are only 2 (in January & February). Also there is only 1 Venus Occultation ((Sept) and 1 Mars Occultation (May). So make the most of those. Interestingly, there are 2 Saturn Occultations in December 2013, and the year 2013 ends with one of these – which I find to be intuitively significant. I’ll ponder that and write about it later in 2013.
Have a magical 2013. Am calling it `The Year of the Witch’ for several reasons. (And the `Day of the Witch’ is coming up in March 2013). You heard that here first . More on that in another post. 🙂
