Saturday August 11 is a Mega Red Day, a Super New Moon and Partial Solar Eclipse
The Mega Red Day and eclipse peaks at 9:47 am UTC (time of Greatest Eclipse or center of the eclipse is GE – Greatest Eclipse)
Eclipse peaks at 9:47 am UTC / 10:47 am London BST / 5:47 am EDT / 2:47 am PDT
Super new Moon in CANCER SATURDAY AUGUST 11
(Vedic or sidereal map, the same sky map that astronomers use. This means that the moon actually resides in Cancer when you look to the sky.)
Super New Moon occurs on August 11 9:57 am UTC / 10:57 am London BST / 5:57 am EDT / 2:57 am PDT
The New Moon peaks only ten minutes from the peak of the solar eclipse – so all spiritual practices up to three hours before, during and after are potentized when you sit and meditate, sing mantra, or do any practice which dissolves the ego, or deepens your spiritual connection.
New Moon in Cancer
This New Moon and solar eclipse in Cancer is a perfect recipe to dissolve emotions which trigger us. This is not about spiritual bypass ~ this is about facing a fear, anxiety, trigger or pattern and looking at it face-on, and to keep breathing through the experience.
Redefining what fear or anxiety IS in your body:
As you watch an emotion rise, come to the surface and dissolve you develop the ability to not let every emotion ‘take you over’. This is a crucial skill in mastering your mind, developing excellence in any field of work and in becoming more developed in your practices.
Remember, in Vedic Astrology it is not recommended to seek out eclipses! It is still very good to know if the eclipse will be shadowing where you live because it has a stronger influence on the areas of the planet where it shadows. There are special opportunities to REVERSE habits, expand your personal spiritual practices and increase discipline all on solar eclipse days.
Solar eclipse days are cosmic windows, but they are NOT cosmic windows for making money, signing contracts or ‘creating things in the world’. It is a time to use for internal practices. The Mega Red Day Report tells you all the details of how to use the last eclipse of the year!
The partial solar eclipse will be visible from northern and eastern Europe, northern parts of North America, and some northern and western locations in Asia (see NASA map below). The wide swath of land and populated area shadowed by this solar eclipse, may make it the most watched solar eclipse of 2018. In Vedic Astrology, it is not recommended to watch a solar eclipse for many reasons; most of which it is a time for deepening spiritual practices and remaining inside and in meditation. Test it. The ancient way is to see what happens when you take the time to meditate at the peak time of eclipse.
The Perseid Meteor Showers are in full show this weekend too with best viewing days on August 111, 12 & 13 because of the New Moon and the dark skies.
I also share some incredible ways to reverse habits on eclipse days, since these windows in time, according to Vedic astrology, will test our resolve and we might watch temptation arise where our weaknesses occur. So, these are discipline building and ‘just say no’ building muscle days, IF you set yourself up for success.
