We are in an eclipse sandwich as the energies this week build to an interesting Gemini Solar Eclipse on June 10. Mars in Cancer opposes Pluto RX in Capricorn on June 5, which could make you aware of what you’re ready to shift and change permanently within your inner world as well as establish new boundaries that feel true for you now. Venus enters Cancer on June 2, bringing our attention to what we need to feel comforted and good about ourselves. Cancer is an opportunity to trust ourselves even more.

The Sun in Gemini trines Saturn in Aquarius on June 3, providing clarity and more certainty to where we’re going, which can be especially helpful during this Mercury retrograde cycle. It is beneficial to step outside the mind’s energy and open up your energy so you can also receive the messages you’re ready for right now. Much more to share in this week’s podcast.

From Your Hostess of Light

Everything that you do touches another, weaving a strand of time that seeks to be eternally experienced.  There are no actions or interactions that are not in Divine proportion to each other, there is only the vibration of ‘all that is’ that seeks to be entwined with itself.

Like a tiny pebble that hits a silent lake, ripples are seen and felt from one end to the other. Everything counts and it can be no other way. When a supernova explodes its energy spreads throughout time and space, layering multi-dimensionally into a place that all can be seen and experienced.

Hearts expand Hearts contract within the very tempo of the creator. Life lives on a pulse and a wave of thought. The Continuum of Life seeks to expand its presence into a place of quickening for all life forms in all places of time and space. All things of creation past present and future give of themselves in totality like placing a drop of rose oil in holy water the entire vessel is changed in measure and aroma. One droplet of any element of divine proportion matters.

Like a spider that stands back from her web of choice every line of creation was essential to create the geometries that will eventually rewrite the original mathematical equation of life. What lives within seeks to come to the surface at the same time what no longer serves us seeks to exit the humanness. In whatever form that may take. All words and actions that are toxic will no longer, and can no longer, be tolerated by the body.

All toxic thoughts and timeworn equations of old no longer stand true in the new longitudes and latitudes of light acceleration. All of life can change form and dimensions. It is either a wave or a particle. Naturally photonic of nature and soul twin of light, matter dances in different directions.  As Soul twins, life is always contracting and expanding, shifting  continually, choosing different experiences and life projections.

The thoughts in your life in your mind and in your body are either light of particle, heavier of wave, or vice versa.  Each thought has a density and an exact numerical configuration.  Human Thoughts distribute themselves in accordance with the spiritual atomic weight of each thought. Gathering together and adhering  like storm clouds or a beautiful sunny day according to thought pattern and density.

Now you can see with somewhat more clarity that the vows of Silence in the times of old served well to simplify creation and all that sought to be. Even in times of complete silence and isolation from the different fractions of the world one has a creational force that does not stop and needs not spoken words to propel itself forward into a place of livingness.

The dimensional dialog and quantum drag increases in volume, as many locations of light seek to neutralize the heaviness that the Earth seems to be experiencing. Lethargy lengthens the days and shortens the night as it consumes like a tsunami time-storm changing past present and future. This planetary lethargy is speaking volumes about human experience and the shortness of divine sight.

The definition of lethargy is the quality or state of being dull, listless, indifferent and lazy; apathetic or sluggish. This energy is birthed when grandmother spider does not care which way she weaves her thoughts, her life, or her heart. Apathy is birthed when she is tired of weaving and seeing no results in her effort. All of Earth looks around themselves with wide eyes feeling that they do not make a difference.  In that house of weariness there are very few good words that take flight. All is at a standstill like an LA freeway at rush hour.

Cellular lethargy is clumped together in a place of stagnation and void, off course like a runaway moon. All life exists within a sea of vibration. The pulse of life creates movement. Sound creates light and that is what we seek as humans. Sound moves matter and creates form. Sound from Outside of time and space as we know it is affecting the formations within the biology of Earth herself and her inhabitants.

There is a sound and a vibration from deep space that is causing the moon to ring at a different cadence which in turn affects the tides and all that house water within their biology. That same energy is changing the Schumann frequency of Mother Earth which is affecting human biology causing distress in the body. Cosmic radiation has an audible sound that streams thru everything it touches. The so called cosmic “void” is actually a dissonance of zipping quantum particles and light waves creating new expression of light and life.

Earth is a living spherical receiver and transmitter. all incoming energies of stellar and solar  light and sound can affect the Central Nervous System (stomach lining),  Brain activity (including equilibrium), all human and animal behavior and all (mental-emotional-physical) responses. These cosmic energies can cause us to be nauseous, nervous, anxious, worrisome, jittery, irritable, and lethargic, have short-term memory loss, headaches, trouble with all forms of communication–both human and technical.

Solar and stellar activity illuminates consciousness, allowing old patterns to be consumed in Light and to make way for the new paradigm. Solar activity is a catalyst for our evolutionary process. Solar light stimulates change in matter, energy, and consciousness for all sentient beings in our universe. It pushes us into a higher position of knowing and the ability to integrate and use that knowledge for the betterment of all Universes.

Evolutionary change is Sun driven and new energy is coming from deep space via the portal of the sun. As the heart and brain of this entire solar system, the Sun sends a twelve-faceted geometric light into every atom of its solar universe. The sun is a giver of life. It is a portal thru which streams data and light emanations from other systems and worlds.  It is a storehouse of vital energies and is considered to be the great hear of this universe.  Stars like our sun are the ‘visible raiment’s of celestial beings’ that are far ahead of us in their spiritual evolution.  Their inner aspects are invisible, just like ours. The sun is simply the heart and brain of our little Universe.

**************************************

A Holy intersection of Time and text

This evolutionary month of July offers us an opportunity to see with the eyes of a honeybee looking at 1000 different perspectives and patterns, seeing in-between time and circumstance from a multidimensional view. We are asked to go below the sea level of emotions into the underlying reefs that are labeled fragile and in need of our care. We try so hard not to feel, to block what hurts, we buffer it anyway we can. Eventually it all comes full circle and one comes face to face with that which you ran away from. The she- crab carries her shell hither and fro, shielding herself from life, and yet every 6 hours the tides changes everything.

As the clock strikes midnight on 7/7/ 2018 we come to a holy intersection of time and text. A great stellar pulse comes forth from our sun straight into the heart of all that matter. July starts the first pulse of power as we slowly move step, by step forward into the power days of summer. Many will be sidestepping as many issues as possible, stuffing the emotions with sweetness you are not finding in life.

On July 25th we will enter the day out of time portal, a place where ‘all and nothing’ exists simultaneously, side by side. A place that would tie the ‘string theory in knots’ if they ever met. The Mayan ‘day out of time’ is the last day of the galactic year in the Mayan calendar. (13 moons of 28 days = 364 days) the extra day, the 365th day, is July 25, called the ‘day out of time’. This day is observed as a day free of time. This ‘free day’ re-aligns the 13 Moon calendar and solar year. It is aligned with the feminine aspect of nature a day of reverence and respect for all life, dedicated to no time.  Each and every day we need to allow a few moments to ‘step out of time’ and realign our energies. To swim deep into the void for that everlasting minute and realign with our heart and souls desire. To see the multi-verse filled with all your failed and forgotten dreams birthed a new, come to life, in Technicolor and surround sound. Everything you had given up on and tossed to the wind landed in the sacred place known as ‘the day out of time’. reach into your heart and gently extract the elixir of life, poring it on all that still seeks to be birthed.


Dreamtime holds powerful opportunities. It is a field where potential, past, and future are held in the same matrix as the present moment. If such a construct is foreign to you, stretch your mind and entertain the possibility that you could help to ‘dream a different reality’ into being. Enter into the mystery where reality is actually created. Through trust, you journey to the place of ‘no time’ and limitless light. There you will undergo the transformations to embody solar heart and mind.

Gillian MacBeth-Louthan: The Month of Libra on our way to the learning’s of Scorpio

The Month of Libra on our way to the learning’s of Scorpio

Friday, 14 October, 2016 

We enter the month of Libra on our way to the learning’s of Scorpio in an interesting button pushing political year. The coin is flipped in the air but where it lands is filled with illusion. Who, what, when, where, are the questions asked in a booming voice that demands answers.

The flickers of light and power surges have already begun as we get ready for the shift before the ‘shift hits the fan’. The Orionid meteors rush towards earth with hot little breaths of starry information dropping meteors all over the planet. Meteors especially from the, hunter, bring good wishes from the 3 stars in Orion’s belt. (Alnitak, Alnilam and Mintaka). The belt of Orion leads to the Pleiades and Sirius, a very starry portal.

Orion is always linked to Lords of Karma, karmic debt whether planet, person, place matters not. It is about clearing the way making a new line of defense.  Everything for the next 88 days points us onto a path that sparkles with expectancy and suspense. Finding out who we really are, in truth will be the most magical of all experiences.  No more staying inside the lines of defined space and time. Loving self is truly the key to the kingdom. The quantum field seeks a mirror image, assuring itself a pleasant outcome.

As we rush forth in our taxing lives the energies sweep by us like the hot passionate kiss of a forest fire, burning our perception of ‘’what should be’. The solar radiation storms touch every cell in our body, reaching deep into the earths crust.  Our very daystar screams at us to pay attention to every thought that strays to far from the farm. The body is restless and prances internally as it feels the presence of a new wave of energy demanding its attention. The heart reaches back into itself as it pronounces and announces vows of what did and did not come to past.
Confessions spill over from emotional storms splashing all within reach. Feeling ‘oh so deeply’ seems to toy with us for sport as the energies clear the pathways of our heart and mucous membranes. The body shouts enough is enough but the solar saturation continues.

The universe demands that all life gain control of itself creating a much needed solar synchronicity. The energies demand we increase in increments without limit, creating endless possibility in a see without end. We are changing from the inside out as the rays from the sun and all it’s experiencing is reflected upon the faces of humanity. Every droplet of light finds a home enhancing the very DNA of what seeks awakening.  Coincidence I think not, as the promise of ‘shifts to come’ shout from every cell in our body.

Every thought is a timepiece that commands your instantaneous interest. Each minute that passes is as a timely gift certificate. As the pulse of light strengths in proportion to desired outcomes it moves its awareness forward thru time to look at each and every one of its creations.  Seeing how they are spending their life force wisely or foolishly; benefiting the all or just paying homage to self.  If seen as beneficial then higher dominations of light are added to the cosmic credit limit.

What is less than in time and value is also multiplied and expanded. Choices are blatantly seen for what they will reap. Hiding is not an option. An evolutionary wave length in direct proportion to the creators pulse is felt on a cellular level within the bio-circuitry of all that has life.

Time once obstructed is seen bending forward and back.  As mankind changes his awareness of what space and time is, he will release himself from the shackles of  past thinking.  The molecules of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness are marching forward thru time without hesitation.  Thought forms of light are ingathered, reevaluated and dispatched to create new worlds. All will be accountable of how they have spent there light.  In the past spiritual gifts have been stunted as many types of energies competed with man for his space and perpetual time.

NorthPoint Astrology Journal February 2 to 8, 2015 by Pam Younghans

NorthPoint Astrology Journal

February 2 to 8, 2015 by Pam Younghans


Highlighted Aspects:

MON: Uranus sextile Sun; TUE: Full Moon 3:08pm PST; WED: Jupiter quincunx Mars; THU: Saturn sextile Mercury, Mars semisquare Mercury; FRI: Jupiter opposite Sun; SAT: Pluto sextile Venus; SUN: Chiron conjunct Venus


WE BEGIN
a new month today, a month of preparation and alignment in anticipation of what is to come.

The energies of March and April are on the horizon, a wave building in our awareness. As we look forward to the final Pluto-Uranus square, the Solar and Lunar Eclipses, and the Aries Equinox, our job now is not to hold back in fear or in resistance to change.

Instead, we want to understand that the nature of a river is to flow. If we can feel resonance with that flow, even the white water becomes a tool for faster movement and excitement, instead of something to be feared.

This month, our job is to set our sights on some larger, perhaps loftier goal that we want to achieve, and to come into resonance with the vibrational frequency of that goal.

THE FULL MOON on Tuesday is our astrological focal point of this first week of February. This Full Moon is in Leo, perhaps the most dramatic of the 12 signs of the zodiac.The Sabian symbol for the Moon’s location at the time of the lunation reads:

“A pageant, with its spectacular floats, moves along a street crowded with cheering people: The more or less sensational release of energies in a form dramatizing the unconscious aspirations of man’s primitive and instinctual nature.”

This symbolic image reminds us that it is a basic human need to express and release emotional energy. The fulfillment of this need could even be one of the “higher purposes” of such things as Super Bowls and sports competitions.

Sporting events also fulfill another of Leo’s needs — that of belonging. Get strangers in a room who have nothing in common but their favorite sports team, and you will have a room full of people who can immediately create a sense of belonging and camaraderie.

JUPITER is within four degrees of the Moon at the time of the Full Moon. This largest of the planets, appropriately, usually has the effect of increasing the influence of whatever it touches. Based on that, we can assume that Leonine traits will be enhanced this week — enthusiasm, generosity, creativity, and pride on one end of the spectrum, and theatrics, conceit, hunger for attention, and intolerance on the other.

We need to remember, however, that a Full Moon always locates the Sun exactly opposite the Moon, and is meant to provide a counterpoint, an opportunity for us to see polarities and to find a balance point in the middle.

This Leo Full Moon is opposite the Sun in Aquarius. Aquarius helps us move beyond self-centeredness and into a better understanding of the meaning of community. Aquarius always pushes us to see things in a new light, and to interpret life through a less personalized perspective.

URANUS trines the Moon and sextiles the Sun during the Full Moon. Whenever Uranus sticks its thumb in the pie, we are encouraged to “expect the unexpected.” We will benefit by being flexible and openminded on Tuesday, especially around the time of the Full Moon (exact at 3:08pm PST), choosing to go with the flow of the river instead of trying to swim across or against the current.

Pluto is also engaged in energies of this Full Moon, not through major aspects to the lunation itself, but because Pluto continues to be joined in strong square aspect with Uranus. This means that the universe may use this Full Moon to move us forward into bigger life choices and changes, through helping us be aware of something that until now has been hidden from view.

In peace,

Pam

8:8 Solar Power ~ a message from Gillian MacBeth-Louthan

8:8 Solar Power ~ a message from Gillian MacBeth-Louthan
Friday, 8 August, 2014

This time of year with all of its wonderful power days is my favorite. Not only because I am a Leo but because I truly see the continual and constant worth of these energy alignments. We are all part of the sacred path and sacred days. As of late two powerful energies have made themselves known many many times a day. White buffalo calf woman and cougarwoman, both sacred and holy feminine energies in their own right. Each asks you to step beyond fear into the unknown and magical aspects of your self. We each seek entrance into the next level of our being, the energies of August 2014 will lead you to another level of personal and planetary initiation. Time to beef up our light put on our big girl panties and step up the plate.

On August 8, (8:8) Solar power will shift into material form to be seen and felt creating an accessible time portal within self.  Uniting the two hemispheres of the brain initiating a total-recall sort of experience. This fusion births a level of light that even the blind can distinguish.  So powerful is this ‘solar vibration’ we will have but one choice as it enters our energy field. The choice is to just let go and allow it to pass through like a solar wind, not holding on to any part of it. Like a cool breeze on a hot day just allow the solar emanations to encircle and embrace you without trying to corral them and make them obey.  Just this minute action will shift the future into a place that can been seen and felt in a higher heart.

The 8:8 energy alignment is symbolic of the human DNA kept separate and secret with resolve.  8:8 represents the timeless relationship that humanity has with earth. As the very stars broadcast to all that will listen as a time passage is opened, revealing higher aspects of the human cognitive ability. mental capacities, IQ and the ability to remember (near and far past and future) will be increased.

The numerical evolutionary vibrations of this 8:8 are powerful and self-fulfilling. They actualize the need to attain and reach for something more not settling. Reaching for what seems far in a future that can only be seen through a pinhole laced with purple-haze.  A new channel is sought and found. Unexpected potentials are reached in those we once gave up upon. The unforeseen is birthed and  encrypted will be the norm. The August energies allow you the opportunity to align with all that was before Creation took this form. The alpha, the omega, and every molecule in-between invite you to partake of their truths. You are finally able to enter the free flowing experience of all possibility; like newly fallen snow with no footprints on it, you will walk upon a clean slate that seeks your approval.

Learning to truly see, to create, to make real by looking through the quantum portal deep into the proverbial rabbit hole takes its toll on your sleeping and your imagination. It is time to change the description of what once was thought to be limitation. A call to duty is announced to all that are willing to expand. You have finally come to the apex of realization.  Your thoughts are the source of your power!. Any and all limitations can be a source of power. Any shadows you battle can be a source of power.  All has the ability to be transformed from lead into gold. What stretches you comes to gift you.

Favorable energies come to call at your door. Those who have never looked in your direction bring a cornucopia of unexpected support. This past year you were asked to climb Above fear, above emotions fording deep emotional waters and past life debris. You watched your world change its landscape right in front of your eyes happening in moments not decades. You felt helpless to change the outcome of what appeared to be destined. You were stretched and pulled about like salt-water taffy.

You have changed forever never to return to who you once were. You sit perched on a new branch of heart awaiting a signal of when it is safe to take wing, neither sign, nor signal comes, You must rely only upon your own intuition to move forward. As this singularity you sit in a place of great power and sacredness; all that you do or do not do is created by you and you alone.

The Blessedness of this year travels to every shore that will welcome it. By seeing the existing blessings in your transformative lives you will create a connection for this wave of blessedness to adhere to. The more thoughts you have of blessing what is in your life right now the more energy is generated, and the easier the new connection will be made. Thoughts of thankfulness and gratitude beckon this wave of blessedness; thoughts of negativity repel it.

The fruits of all past labors of life and love can be now tasted and supped upon. What was once thought to be lost is found within ones very own life. Energy spent in helping others was placed into a universal account that has accrued to mighty proportions. Nothing was every lost or wasted or tossed away in thoughts and actions of goodness and kindness. All actions of inherent good have been counted and accounted for by the universal abacus. All time spent in prayer and kind thoughts for others has been exponentially expanded and multiplied beyond earth’s ability to count. A great amount of heavenly rewards finds itself on the road to the masses.

This year offers a pathway of internal illumination and a glimpse into true spiritual fulfillment. It offers a place and time of reconnecting to the Great Light.  One is finally escorted into a placement of personal power. Every thought counts dramatically, creating or destroying in its wake. Mastership demands 100% of your attention 24/7. This august unties the ‘time slip-knot’ creating an open road to travel upon beckoning one to quest in a new direction. Fractals restructure themselves into different patterns of thought as the light within the unexpected and unexplained is turned up so high that even the 3 blind mice can see. You are leaving the energy of what has so distracted you and moving into a place of sharp focus. Chose to see all or nothing, do not turn a blind 3rd eye to any possibility. August 8, is a place were the polarities meet and heaven and earth sip from each other’s glass. It is a celebration beyond time that escorts you home through the Sphinx Lions Gate to the Stars you shine for while on earth. is composed of matter and antimatter. It  is an unprecedented event that takes place every year as this sacred portal opens. The very ends of your DNA will open their little hearts as their filament endings are unwrapped to expose what has been hidden. What comes to be has not unwrapped its protective coverings as of yet, but be assured it is worth its wait in gold.

August 2014 is all about change, change is echoing in the chambers of our souls.  Following the direction of the heart takes a tough dedicated spiritually strong person. Choices of the heart are never easy. This year has been a time of metamorphosis. (The hard way the easy way and every which way.)  We have been stripped down to our barely human essentials.  Standing in front of the Light, we bare our souls.

Feeling so ready to shift, wanting to experience the shift in one quantum leap instead of one hundred baby steps. We have all intentions of moving forward quickly, silently, lovingly and happily.  As we ready ourselves for change we expect all of our cosmic duckies to be in a row. Lined up and bobbing to our personal wavelength.  We look to our world to reflect our creation but nothing seems to be reflected in it that mirrors the image in our mind.  We then begin to question our abilities, our intentions, our prayers and our worthiness,

We have entered a newer, bigger doorway of Creational learning. No longer are we mild mannered humans praying, asking, or cajoling an almighty God to give to us as helpless beings. We have achieved Creational Maturity and are now responsible for all props as we dance around this stage of life. In this raised understanding of creation we are asked to be mature in our manifestations.  To create concisely not haphazardly.  Not to curse our creations when they do not appear on the date and time we expect them to arrive.  For our curses send them immediately back through time and space into the ethers, to sit in the un-creational waiting room.

You are the Creator of your own circumstances. What you have created you can change.  When we react to sudden chaos/or negative changes in our life we delay the purpose of creation.  If we accept chaos as an opportunity for spiritual elevation, negativity will disappear.  We alone determine the amount of time in which turmoil passes.  It is time to stop poisoning our future with our doubt.

In this new level of Creatorship we cannot doubt any of our intentions no matter how slight.  We need to ready our selves for the lessons in all situations, if your intention is to manifest a certain set of life experiences and you do not see the blueprint in your world, then understand the manifestation is large of molecule and must pass through several layers of light in order to be brought forth in concentrated form. The summer sun will force us all into the shade of our new thinking, looking at how we have created and uncreated since the beginning of time. We truly are experts at this game of creation and it is time to remember that in our every thought.

29th April 2014: Solar Eclipse in Taurus 6:15 am GMT: Life IS Change! by Sarah Varcas

“The eclipse occurs on 29th April at 6:15 a.m. GMT in the 9th degree of Taurus. A couple of weeks ago I described this stage in recent astrological events as the point post-birth (birth being the Cardinal Cross) at which we begin to appreciate just how profoundly our lives are now changing. The new state of being, situations and circumstances brought about in the shadow of recent cosmic events begin to reveal their true implications now. This is one of the reasons I was encouraging so strongly any attempt to do things differently during the time of the Cardinal Cross, because all efforts to change made then will now begin the process of bearing fruit. Interestingly the Sabian Symbol for this degree is a Christmas tree, and this is certainly a time when we can begin to unwrap some gifts. Of course, I don’t need to tell you we don’t always get exactly what we want for Christmas, nor do we always appreciate what someone else thinks is just the thing for us!

In the earthy sign of Taurus, this eclipse asks of us commitment and staying power, together with a healthy dose of common-sense! If we have been bashed about by recent events, now’s the time to gather ourselves up, brush ourselves off and begin to work on our plan from here on in. If, however, the Grand Cross brought things to positive fruition, the message of this eclipse is not to allow success or satisfaction distract us from the fact that maintaining those positive results will take that commitment and staying power aforementioned!

A Solar Eclipse in Taurus is a time to feed the roots of our own creations and tend to the nascent shoots which are peeking through the soil. Pulling at them won’t help, neither will dancing all over them in the moment of excitement when they first appear! They require patient attention and gentle handling as they build up their strength for the lifetime ahead. Events around the time of this eclipse may well reveal to us which shoots are in it for the long haul and which are not strong enough to make it. It can be hard to give up on the weakest ones, especially if they’re of particular importance to us, but we would do well to take note and act accordingly at this point if we want to avoid a whole load of wasted effort in the months to come. This is a time of careful discernment about where we invest our attention and energy from this point on. And it hardly needs saying, but I’ll say it anyway: if our creations are undesirable, we need to clear them out right now. Failure to do so may leave us with a lot of weeding to do in due course and we need to make space for new shoots to grow, without being strangled by the tap roots of our less productive habits and foibles.

This eclipse also highlights the risk of assuming we have reached a destination, be it desirable or otherwise. Wherever we find ourselves, we are still on a journey, no matter how it may actually feel. I talk about change a lot, and sometimes people get frustrated with me: ‘no more change!’ they cry. But change is life and life is change. We don’t reach a point where everything stays the same and it’s all exactly how we want it to be. Not least because exactly how we want it to be will eventually change too! As the Buddha so wisely observed, all conditioned things are subject to change, and there’s a whole lot of suffering involved if we can’t accept that fact (I’m paraphrasing, by the way…). So whilst this eclipse brings us into the sign of Taurus who is traditionally uncomfortable with change, it does so to remind us that change is all there is. Nothing lasts forever, be it good or bad, fulfilling or mind-numbing, what we want or the very thing we have spent a lifetime fearing. It is all transitory and passing through.

Which is exactly what we are, too, and this eclipse arrives to remind us that if we want our life vibrant and fulfilling we’d do well to remind ourselves of that fact. People who face life-threatening disease often report how much sweeter life becomes as a result of their predicament. Suddenly it is so much easier and more natural to appreciate each moment, even when there doesn’t seem to be much going on. When something is limited, we appreciate it more, and whilst we are all limited to a relatively short life, we easily forget and end up demanding so much more than the miracle of being alive, to keep us satisfied

So it may seem like a mixed message: nurture the roots of your dreams whilst appreciating simply being here without demanding more. But in fact the two go hand in hand if we want a peaceful and satisfying life, for as we nurture those roots there may not seem like much happening, and if the roots fail we may draw a blank. But we are still alive, and as long as we can recognise the miracle of that fact, whatever happens we will know ourselves to be already blessed beyond measure.

Happy eclipse everyone!”
