New Moon Solar Eclipse

This is the rare May 20, 2012 Annular Solar Eclipse with the Pleiades on a Mayan Day of No Shadows that opens a two week eclipse window ending with the partial Lunar Eclipse on June 4 followed the next day by the June 5 Venus Transit over the Sun (visible in the western United States and Hawaii) a special event that will not happen again for 105 years!

This is an annular solar eclipse, when the moon and sun align today, creating a "ring of fire" around the moon because of the sun being the larger size, also called ring of fire because it is literally in the pacific ring of fire area. Astronomers say that today's (May 20) solar eclipse will be the best the United States has seen since 1992. "The moon is going to cover 80 or 90 percent of the sun for all of the middle and western United States," Dr. Douglas Duncan, Director of Fiske Planetarium at the University of Colorado, Boulder said in a video about the event on his blog. Colorado is not in direct alignment with this celestial event, as best views are in Northern California, Nevada, Southern Utah, Northern Arizona and New Mexico, still, Colorado's southwest corner should get a pretty good view, take a look at this map for the solar eclipse's path over the United States or this NASA built map showing the path of the annular solar eclipse and where it is viewable across the globe.
(Great time for Intending at The Intenders Of The Highest Good Circle tonight!) Happy Intending!
It will still be stunning to see in the rest of Colorado. Here is today's Eclipse/Intending schedule:
6:23 p.m.: Eclipse begins (Intending begins)
7:30 p.m.: Maximum eclipse (Intending maxed)
7:50 p.m.: Sunset (Intending finished)

An Alignment of Our Earth, the Moon, the Sun, and beyond the Milky Way in the center of the Galaxy, The Pleiades occurs today on May 20, 2012

The sweetest sounds to mortals given
Are heard in Mother, Home, and Heaven. ~William Goldsmith Brown

A young boy said to his mother, 'How old were you when I was born?' His mother replied, '23.' 'Wow, that's a lot of time we missed spending together.'


"M" is for the million things she gave me,

"O" means only that she's growing old,

"T" is for the tears she shed to save me,

"H" is for her heart of purest gold;

"E" is for her eyes, with love-light shining,

"R" means right, and right she'll always be,

Put them all together, they spell "MOTHER,"

A person that means the world to me.

Supermoon 2012 & St George's Day

St George's Day
From Wikipedia:

St George's Day is celebrated by the several nations, kingdoms, countries, and cities of which Saint George is the patron saint. St George's Day is celebrated on 23 April, the traditionally accepted date of Saint George's death in AD 303. For Eastern Orthodox Churches who use the Julian calendar, 23 April corresponds to 6 May on the Gregorian calendar.
As Easter often falls close to St George's Day, the church celebration of the feast may be moved from 23 April. In 2011 and 2014, the Anglican and Catholic calendars celebrate St George's Day on the first Monday after Easter Week (2 May and 28 April, respectively). Similarly, the Eastern Orthodox celebration of the feast moves accordingly to the first Monday after Easter or, as it is else called, to the Monday of Bright Week.
Countries that celebrate St George's Day include England, Canada, Catalonia, Croatia, Portugal, Cyprus, Greece, Georgia, Serbia, Bulgaria, Romania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and the Republic of Macedonia. Cities include Moscow in Russia, Genova in Italy, Ljubljana in Slovenia, Beirut in Lebanon, Qormi and Victoria in Malta and many others. It is also celebrated in the old Crown of Aragon in Spain—Aragon, Catalonia, Valencia, and Majorca

Supermoon Saturday! 5-5-5

Supermoon Saturday is here! Today is 5-5-5 as well in numerology dates. The full moon is in Perigee, which is the closest time of alignment to the earth. Tonight's "supermoon" is the biggest and brightest full moon of the year, due to the fact that the moon is near the closest point in its orbital path around Earth. Richard Nolle of coined the name of Supermoon in 1979, and used these moons to predict natural disasters of all types, not just from rising tides. He says that SuperMoons are noteworthy for their close association with extreme tidal forces working in what astrologers of old used to call the sublunary world: the atmosphere, crust and oceans of our home planet - including ourselves, of course. From extreme coastal tides to severe storms to powerful earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, the entire natural world surges and spasms under the sway of the SuperMoon alignment - within three days either way of the exact syzygy, as a general rule. SuperMoon solar eclipses tend to have a wider sphere of impact, extending roughly a week before and after the actual event. And other lunar extremes (of declination, for example) can extend the geocosmic stress window by a day or two here and there in any case.

May the Fourth be with You

Today, being the 4th of May, is also known as Star Wars Day! We can remember all the great Star Wars movies and tell everyone we meet today "May the Fourth be with You" as we make a light saber gesture! I have seen all the Star Wars movies several, if not numerous times- even the newest 3D version! Love them all! We are now living the storyline of Star Wars- even some recent political speeches have excerpts of the lines from these movies. Don't worry, as the legend goes- truth always triumphs over evil.
