Total Solar Eclipse 2008: Dragon-Eating Moon

August 1st, 2008 by Voxx

Don’t forget to watch the Solar Eclipse via the internet at 3:21 am (PDT).  (Click the NASA link at the bottom of this post to watch the eclipse via live-streaming). The New Moon will be in Leo at 9 Degrees (the exact degree of the Sun, which is what causes an eclipse in the first place).

This eclipse concerns me greatly, as it occurs within one degree of some very inauspicious Fixed Stars.  According to ancient star lore, here is a bit of info:

South Asellus:  8° Leo 35 – Asellus is considered unfortunate, and it’s energy is related to both the Sun and Mars.  In particular, this star concerns military preferment, blindness, eye trouble, shipwreck, mass murder, horrors, self-willed, unwillingness to cooperate

Giansar:  10° Leo 20 – Although Giansar is considered a “neutral” energy, it’s connection to Saturn and Mars, causes additional concern, as it shows danger of robbery and accidental poisoning.

This particular eclipse threatens to dethrone, maim and kill emperors, rulers and those who are in high authoritative positions.  Not only that, but the influence of eclipses is generally felt for up to 6 months afterward!  Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

For anyone with any planets at 6 to 12 degrees Leo, there is no doubt that major changes are underway.  Time to get it together — it’s going to be a bumpy ride alright!

UPDATE:  I was up until sunrise, performing a New Moon in Leo ritual, using my Scrying Mirror to catch the the Moon’s magnificence.  I’ll be posting some pix soon.  Seriously, I haven’t felt this much energy from an eclipse since 1991.  The view was exhilarating, even if it was only caught on my television.  Now, we have 4 planets in the sign of Leo, which promises this to be a very historical time, that will no doubt begin immediately.

The Sun in Leo

July 22nd, 2008 by Voxx

The Sun’s movement into the zodiac sign of Leo is the true beginning of Summer, at least as far as I’m concerned. Now is the time when we really feel the power of the sun’s rays, and the build-up of Summer heat. As Leo is a Fire Sign, it’s no wonder that there tends to be an increase in fires at this time of year (although I truly hope that’s not the case this year — still I know better by now!)

The Sun is the source of all life on Earth, and as such lends its intense energy to whatever zodiacal sign it happens to be passing through. The Sun rules the 5th House of the Zodiac, which is governed by the sign of Leo. The 5th House concerns the subjects of Romance, Creativity and Children, as well as Gambling and games of chance.

Those born between the dates of July 22nd through August 21st are born under the sign of Leo, whose zodiacal emblem is the lion. Thus, those who are born during this solar phase bear the “traits of the Lion” as a result. For more info on the Sun and its rulership of Leo, please visit the Voxx Magickal School site. I hope you all enjoy the Season of Fire responsibly.

Midsummer’s Nite

June 24th, 2008 by Voxx

I’m actually writing this on June 23rd — waiting to set out the silver bowl to collect the morning dew of Saint John’s Eve (Midsummer’s Eve).  I use the dew to concoct some very magickal potions and brews for the rest of the year.  It definitely works.  I’ll add a bit about Midsummer Legends to this post, when I can on an on-going basis.

LVX,

Full Moon in Taurus: 10/26/07

October 26th, 2007 by Voxx

19.jpgThe Full Moon will occur in the sign of Taurus at 9:51 pm (PDT) and 12:51 am (EDT), at 2:23 Degrees.

The Moon (also known as Luna), is considered exalted in the earthy sign of Taurus — a fact that lends more awareness of the preciousness of Life, despite its many ups and downs.Although Taurus is an earth sign, it is ruled by the planet Venus, Goddess of Beauty, Fertility and the Arts. It’s no wonder why many of us may feel incredibly inspired at this time, especially poets, musicians and artists.

A great way to celebrate the Full Moon in Taurus is to create something beautiful, create a sumptuous feast for yourself and your loved ones, paint a picture, enjoy music — whatever you choose to do, immerse yourself totally.The Venusian energy of this lunation offers a chance to heal and come to terms with harsher realities of life, something that many Southern Californians may need right now.

Full Moon Rituals: Read more about Moon Magick, and learn more about this particular lunation.Remember to join the Voxx Magickal Forum, and read more about the Esoteric Art of Astrology. I also offer classes on Basic Astrology as well, so feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.

Have a mystical, magickal day!

Total Lunar Eclipse in Pisces Tonight!

August 27th, 2007 by Voxx

bloodmoon 1Tonight’s eclipse will prove to be one of the most special in a long time. We’ll be seeing the longest total eclipse to happen in many years.

As far as Magick goes … may I suggest leaving any Magickal Rituals tonight to the more seasoned practitioners! Performing complex or unfocused Magick during such a powerful lunar phase can have unwarranted results, so be careful and plan your ritual in detail.  This is a particularly potent Full Moon as well, as Pisces rules the 12th House of the Zodiac, and is highly Karmic in nature.

I’ll be adding more info and links soon! Check back.
