Heads Up on July 11, 2010 Solar Eclipse
by Milky Way Maid
The world will experience a Total Solar Eclipse on July 11, 2010 which will last about an hour and a half. It will be exact at 19:34 UTC. The penumbral phase begins at 17:09, the total phase begins at 18:15, the exact total eclipse at 19:34, the total phase ends at 20:51, and the penumbral phase ends at 21:57 UTC.
The path of the eclipse will be 259 km in width, or 160.93 miles.
As with the June 25 lunar eclipse, the path will be visible over the southern Pacific Ocean, touching the flyspeck islands of Tuamotu and Easter Island, and proceeding to the southern tips of Argentina and Chile.
Astrologers chart the position of this solar eclipse at 19 degrees, 24 minutes of Cancer. The Sun and Moon are very close to the asteroid Juno at 18 degrees, which traditionally rules marriage. The Sun and Moon are also in close sextile to Mars and Vesta in earthy Virgo. People with natal planets in aspect to the eclipse point may find themselves tying the knot before the year is out, or at least meeting their future spouse. The relationship will be as much spiritual (Vesta) as it is sexual (Mars).
[I have mentioned the website ShadowandSubstance dot com before, but let me do so yet again. The animations at that webpage for the SOLAR eclipse on July 11, show that the best viewing will be in the South Pacific, from Papeete, Tahiti to Santiago, Chile. I may be a little off but the June 26 Lunar Eclipse and the July 11 Solar Eclipse appear to have almost identical paths.]
Kaye Shinker has provided a cookbook list of natal planets contacted by eclipses, in terms of their personal economic effects. Please see http://www.astrologicalinvesting.com/html/articles_pages/articles-solareclipseAug2008.html
