The second total lunar eclipse of 2007 will happen in the wee hours of this morning, the morning of August 28, beginning at 1:55 a.m. Pacific Daylight time. The eclipse will be most viewable to the Pacific Rim, including the West Coast of the U.S. and Canada as well as Alaska, Hawaii, New Zealand and Eastern Australia. Those of us living in these places will be able to see the complete eclipse from start to finish. The eclipse will not be visible to Europeans because the moon will be below their horizons at this time. This will be a particularly long eclipse, and the moon may glow red or orange. It is expected to be quite beautiful.
Wise women believe this type of eclipse is significant, meaningful, and powerful; on this night, the full moon and the new moon occur at once. This is a time for soul-searching, for contemplation, for watching and waiting, for reverence and respect for the Mother. This event sometimes marks the beginning of a paradigm shift. Perhaps before the eclipse comes, we can think and dream together of peace on earth.
