“Where can I watch the Solar Eclipse and what does it mean?”
The Wellness Universe shares where you can grab a front row seat for the total Solar Eclipse. Thanks to Carol Pilkington, Transformation, and Spiritual Counselor, she shares what you can spiritually expect to experience from this epic event.
A total Solar Eclipse is happening August 21st. What exactly takes place during a total solar eclipse? What is the spiritual significance for this Solar Eclipse? Where can you safely view the total solar eclipse? We share it all right here.
Thanks to TimeandDate.com, here are the Complete Solar Eclipse 5 phases:
- Partial eclipse begins (1st contact): The Moon starts becoming visible over the Sun’s disk. The Sun looks as if a bite has been taken from it.
- Total eclipse begins (2nd contact): The entire disk of the Sun is covered by the Moon. Observers in the path of the Moon’s umbra may be able to see Baily’s beads and the diamond ring effect, just before totality.
- Totality and maximum eclipse: The Moon completely covers the disk of the Sun. Only the Sun’s corona is visible. This is the most dramatic stage of a total solar eclipse. At this time, the sky goes dark, temperatures can fall, and birds and animals often go quiet. The midpoint of time of totality is known as the maximum point of the eclipse. Observers in the path of the Moon’s umbra may be able to see Baily’s beads and the diamond ring effect, just after totality ends.
- Total eclipse ends (3rd contact): The Moon starts moving away, and the Sun reappears.
- Partial eclipse ends (4th contact): The Moon stops overlapping the Sun’s disk. The eclipse ends at this stage in this location.
Protect Your Eyes!
Never look directly at the Sun, eclipsed or otherwise, without proper protective eyewear. The Sun’s UV radiation can burn the retinas in your eyes, and cause permanent damage or even blindness.
To watch a solar eclipse safely, wear protective eclipse glasses or project an image of the eclipsed Sun using a pinhole projector. – https://www.timeanddate.com/eclipse/total-solar-eclipse.html
Total Solar Eclipse New Moon – August 21, 2017: In the Sign of Leo brings Courage and Authenticity!
A total solar eclipse is a rare occurrence and therefore is an inertia breaker and can be felt days before. That which has been lying just beneath the surface is ready to burst through.
It is time to take stock of old habits and belief systems that no longer serve you or hold you back from being your truest and most authentic Self. It’s time to face fears that have been lurking in the shadows. You may feel during this time a boost of courage to do so and even an undeniable need to see things as they really are. This new moon may begin a process of gaining clarity and being able to make decisions that bring you more in alignment with your own sense of individuality and the need to express yourself in the world.
The seeds are planted let’s see what you can reap from this new cycle.

Grab your seat! The entire world can watch the Solar Eclipse of 2017 thanks to NASA:
Live video streams of the August 21 total solar eclipse, from NASA Television and locations across the country, will be available on this page.
The Eclipse can be viewed from your computer via live stream thanks to NASA. We found the following information on NASA’s website https://www.nasa.gov/eclipselive-info
12 p.m. EDT – Eclipse Preview Show, hosted from Charleston, South Carolina.
1 p.m. EDT – Solar Eclipse: Through the Eyes of NASA.
This show will cover the path of totality the eclipse will take across the United States, from Oregon to South Carolina. The program will feature views from NASA research aircraft, high-altitude balloons, satellites and specially-modified telescopes. It also will include live reports from Charleston, as well as from Salem, Oregon; Idaho Falls, Idaho; Beatrice, Nebraska; Jefferson City, Missouri; Carbondale, Illinois; Hopkinsville, Kentucky; and Clarksville, Tennessee.
Over the course of 100 minutes, 14 states across the United States will experience more than two minutes of darkness in the middle of the day. Additionally, a partial eclipse will be viewable across all of North America. The eclipse will provide a unique opportunity to study the sun, Earth, moon and their interaction because of the eclipse’s long path over land coast to coast. Scientists will be able to take ground-based and airborne observations over a period of an hour and a half to complement the wealth of data and images provided by space assets.
– Thank you, NASA.
Happy Eclipse and may this celestial event bring you a new perspective on life.
We can never tell how these once in a lifetime events can affect us, until later on. May this eclipse not only affect your life in a positive way, but also, create more awareness globally. We can all experience this miraculous event as one, via technology as well as in person for those in the geographical zones exposed to it in real time. We can all feel the effects whether we view it or not. That is powerful.
May the physical, awe-inducing experience and spiritual experience lift you higher and create more awareness to attain your greatest potential.
