This is the Wesak Moon, the birthday of the Buddha. In Theosophy, it is when the Buddha and Christ energies combine to Bless the Earth and humanity. Meditate at this exact moment, and we can be there in Shangri-la.
The Scorpio FM eclipse has Uranus = Saturn/Pluto midpoint picture in the background. So much is being jiggled loose – so that we can move forward. Be ready for your vulnerabilities to stare straight at you…. so you can face fears and know you are loved and supported.
No Fear, but going within at every single moment. Listen to the inner voice, and enjoy what beauty this planet Earth is gifting us.
“Tomorrow is another beautiful day”
On the night of May 5-6, 2023, people in much of Europe, Africa, Asia, and Australia will have a chance to see a deep penumbral lunar eclipse — deep enough to be visible to the naked eye!
This will be the deepest penumbral lunar eclipse until September 2042. However, penumbral eclipses are the most subtle lunar eclipses and are challenging to observe. You’ll need perfect weather and patience.
During a penumbral lunar eclipse, only the Earth’s outer shadow, penumbra, falls on the lunar disk.
For a lunar eclipse to occur, the Sun, Earth, and Moon have to line up. However, since the plane of the Moon’s orbit is inclined to the plane of Earth’s orbit, sometimes they align imperfectly. Therefore the Earth blocks the sunlight from reaching the Moon with only the outer and lightest part of its shadow, penumbra (derived from the Latin pene — “almost” and umbra — “shadow”).
5 May: Eta Aquariid meteor shower peaks. Most active for 7 days around this date. Associated with Comet Halley. Very fast, bright meteors, up to 40 per hour. Best seen from the tropics & southern hemisphere before dawn. Moonlight interferes this year.
A meteor shower is a celestial event in which a number of meteors are observed to radiate, or originate, from one point in the night sky called Radiant. These meteors are caused by streams of cosmic debris called meteoroids entering Earth’s atmosphere at extremely high speeds on parallel trajectories.
