All the scary info about the solar eclipse of 13-14 November 2012
Coming to this page late? Â The greatest effect of the eclipse is usually within 3 days AFTER, and then 30 days after.
First, the basics.
Time and Date:
November 13, 2012;Â Â begins 1:37 PM Central (here in NW Florida) and ends 6:45 PM.
Total Solar eclipse
Northern Australia and Western South America — this one starts on the 14th over Australia and ends on the 13th over South America. Â I’m intrigued by the idea of it beginning in the future and ending in the present…or if it beginning in the present and ending in the past? Â Depends on your point of view, I suppose.
General predictions among astrologers:
Tense, bad news, oppressive–but that also seems to be the mindset of these astrologers, too. Â Honestly, the eclipses of the last couple of years have ranged from mild to horrific, so this one has more of a feel of resignation…like it’s just gonna be nasty out there for a while.
The overwhelming opinion of astrologers Iâ€™ve communicated with is that this eclipse is not dire, but it will have harsh aspects. Â Many are pointing out conjunctions with Fixed Stars that are considered unlucky. Â Maybe I’m just tired of bad news but I don’t remember the last time I saw one conjunct a “lucky” star. Â Some astrologers are really reaching…wide orbs…to fine the negatives. Â Yes, it’s tough out there right now, but I don’t see anything extremely rough about this one as far as mean-spirited conjunctions. Â I’m more concerned that it’s in Scorpio, so that tends to be a time of revelation and intensity. Â Truth coming out, people trying to hide the truth, having to rebuild or reconstruct. Â Oh, and lots of arguments over politics at the Thanksgiving dinner table. Â Don’t let political discussions dominate your family time! Â Whether you agree with family or not, try to turn the conversation to the positive and to the resiliency of those you love.
Sign and Degree:
21 Scorpio 57
“Hunters shooting wild ducks.” Â The longer version makes a difference: Â “Hunters protected by heavy clothing shooting wild ducks.”

For me, I remember life being very, very busy. Â We’d just moved into a new house, my younger daughter was in potty training, my first book had just been published at a major publishing house–a very productive and busy time! Â I also remember that I’d burned the candles at both ends for too long and I was only months away from a major health issue that changed the course of my career, family, everything. Â There’s a lesson for me there to remember this time because I can feel myself edging back toward those burning candles. Â What lessons did you miss last time that you need to know now?

Sabian symbols are good starting points for meditations. Â When I looked up the symbol for this eclipse, I read the short version–“Hunters shooting wild ducks” –and shrugged. Â I guess, I told myself, that it depends on whether you see yourself as the hunter or the duck. Â No problem. Â Then I read the longer version which added “hunters protected by heavy clothing.” Â Interesting how my perception shifted. Â Now I began to see the hunters as having all the power. Â They’re wearing heavy protective clothing…to protect against what? Â Ducks? Â The spark for a meditation seemed to shift more toward powerful people calling the shots, no pun intended, and the rest of us scattering. Â A sense of unfairness. Â Of victimization. Â These are not hunters in a fair fight.
How does this image reflect your world and your personal situation? Â Can you shift it through meditation and see a way to escape or shift the situation into something less burdensome?
