A Solar Eclipse will take place on May 20, 2012 (May 21, 2012 for local time in the Eastern Hemisphere). A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun, totally or partially obscuring the image of the Sun for a viewer on Earth.
This eclipse isn't a total eclipse. It is an annular eclipse, when the moon appears slightly smaller than the sun so it doesn't cover the sun completely. A ring of light will shine around the blackness that is the moon blacking the sun.
It will be the first central eclipse of the 21st century in the continental USA, and also the first annular eclipse there since the solar eclipse of May 10, 1994.
Solar eclipses always happen at the time of the new moon, which is a good time for scrying using a dark mirror or other forms of divination. An eclipse is a great time for inner journeying and self-discovery.
This eclipse occurs when the sun is in Gemini, which has to do with communication (words, writing, discussion, the internet, etc.)
During a solar eclipse, we experience what might be called a "micro year". The sun is whole, then partially or completely hidden, and then visible again. Within just a few minutes, an energy similar to a complete cycle of solstices and equinoxes can be felt.
In addition to this somewhat seasonal energy, we are aware of the Moon's presence. Her shadow falls across the Earth as she appears between the Earth and the Sun. This adds the unification of solar and lunar energy, reinforcing the sense of wholeness, completion and cycles of a solar eclipse.
Consider this fact about solar eclipses: A solar eclipse can only occur during the day, on a new moon. This means that you are working with new moon energy (great for getting rid of things and letting go).
The New Moon is powerful, and combined with the Sun it creates the strength and power to manifest whatever you wish into your life as a new beginning.
What is it that you’d like to change in your life? You can be creative with the changes (i.e. Losing Weight, Changing Hair Color/Style, Getting a New Job, Etc.) Or even if you just wish to be reborn and change everything.
This is the best time to make these changes!
I urge you all to make some positive changes in your life.
This eclipse contains the potential of deep cleansing hydrotherapy of the soul or for those stubborn demonic stains comes complete with added hydroblast water jet! I say this because of the amount of potent stars and a super-conjunction that are adding juice to this eclipse. We have a tight Venus trine Saturn which I think is beautifully healing and powerful for lovers to affirm their commitment to one another no matter how treacherous the icky Neptunian sea gets.
Don’t Let This Powerfully Magic Time Slip Through Your Fingers!
Remember to take proper safety precautions when viewing any solar eclipse. Never look directly at the sun with the naked eye or through telescopes. Even binoculars need the proper filters.
