The estimable Fallenmonk notes:
Tuesday is a lunar eclipse. It will be visible from most of North America
Tuesday is also the Winter Solstice – the longest night.
Tuesday is the first night that a lunar eclipse has occurred on a Winter Solstice in 456 years.
For those of you not really attuned to the theory and practice of ‘magick’ then you should know that, according to people who should know, your personal power to effect change and do ‘magick’ is increased a thousand times while the moon is in eclipse since its power is blocked. The full moon and its effect goes without saying.
The Tea Party and Sarah Palin are going to blame all of this on President Obama and demand to know why he hasn’t done anything to prevent this terrible event. It proves he’s really a secret wizard.
