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’ve downloaded the detailed Eclipse-diagram  from NASA website (Eclipse diagram/data (c) Fred Espenak – 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 – 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

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).

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.

Astrology charts

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).

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).

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

Eclipse Magic: Full moon/Lunar Eclipse ritual 7th August 2017 (London)

Alert (16Aug17):   Total Solar Eclipse on 21st August 2017 – full details & chart on a new blog here https://quantumphoenix.net/2017/08/16/solar-eclipse-august-2017-data-charts-eclipse-magic-book-offer/

———————————————–

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).

• 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):

• 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.

• 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) ——————-

• 7.30pm- 7.45pm  :  Meeting outside main entrance (seats) by Tate Modern Gallery

• 7.45pm- 8.15pm :  Go down to Thames &  help set up altar area.

• 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.

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

Rahu & Ketu – The serpent demons who swallowed the Sun and Moon (Eclipses).

Rahu & Ketu swallow the Sun & Moon and cause the Eclipses, according to hindu myths. They represent the north & south nodes, and are given `planets’ designation in vedic astrology.

Rahu & Ketu  are – according to Hindu mythologies – the  serpent demons who swallow the Sun and Moon! This occurrence is of course a Solar Eclipse or a Lunar Eclipse (`Sooriya Grahanam’  and `Chandra Grahanam’  in Tamil language).

These demons – one with a human head and snake tail, and the other with a snake head and human body – were not always 2 separate beings!  In fact they were one demon (Asuran).

What’ s the story?  Why did they split?  And why do they taunt the Sun and Moon ?

I’ll have to write it later.
