Merry meet and merry greet brothers and sisters of The Craft,
I realize I have been posting only on one topic for the last week or so there is a reason for this. This is an event that affects our energy which affects our spirit and body also in many ways we will not understand until possibly after the event. So I am trying to bring you as much information as I have time to from the scientific view point as well as a metaphysical view point. As Lady of the Abyss has said in a couple of articles I reblogged from Witches of The Craft (Lady A is the person who talked me into doing this as an independent site from WOTC. WOTCis the site that sponsored Coven Life) this maybe a once in a lifetime happening for many people. Aside note there will be another total solar eclipse over North America on April 8, 2024, but more on this one at a later date.Ra, Egyptian Sun God, and my patron god, has blessed me with the time off work on Monday, August 21st to be able to view this celestial wonder, even though where I live outside of Chicago, Illinois, USA, at full eclipse for my area the Sun will only be about 97% covered, I think. Below is a time line for viewing in my area.
|11:54 amMon, Aug 21||Partial Eclipse beginsThe Moon touches the Sun’s edge.||152°||
|1:19 pmMon, Aug 21||Maximum EclipseMoon is closest to the center of the Sun.||192°||

So I will continue sharing eclipse information over the weekend. I will try to record bits and pieces of it with my cell phone and/or Kindle and/or Netbook size computer as the eclipse is happening. If I can do that then all I have to do is figure out how to post some of them with still pictures on here for you. Please if you live in an area where you can see this marvel of our universe take still pictures and do not mind sharing them with others through this website…email mail them to firstname.lastname@example.org Be sure to include a name you would not mind the world seeing as I will be crediting the photographer for the picture and also where in the USA the photo was taken. I look forward to sharing pictures from all across the USA.
As I want to have my altar any other things set up by 11:45 AM CT, I will be holding a short ritual for this event in the Coven Life chat room about approximately 11:00 AM CT. I will have the all the information posted for that on Saturday, August 19th by 12:00 PM CT.
I will be doing a special post-Monday afternoon just for any one who experienced this eclipse partial, total, or whatever to share how they felt, what thoughts were running through their heads, what if any ritual they did during the eclipse. Basically, it will be for you to tell your stroy of this unqiue day in all our lifes. The post will be set up on the first page of Coven Life’s website.
