TOPIC: TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE: NOVEMBER 13, 2012
10-11-12 - MEDITATION - PREDICTIVE DREAM
I was watching General Hospital from 10-10-12 and got too tired to watch the whole thing, so I paused it to take a nap. When I take a nap, it's my meditation chair, so I started to meditate and had a vision that said 'ECLIPSE 2002'
This is it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solar_eclipse_of_December_4,_2002 the map shows it going across southern Africa and south America.
I then fell asleep and went into a building that I was not familiar with, and the first door I went past had a very large window in it that looked like sunglass material - rather greyish. Inside, there was a man playing the guitar and singing.
I heard him call out, "If you come in, I'll share something with you."
I took that to be some kind of scam, so I passed the ladies room, and went into the next doorway, which was the office I was headed for.
Apparently I had a job of some kind in this office, but the office itself was not familiar to me, and I was meeting the women inside for the first time, however, the first woman was Starr from One Life to Live TV show - but who is now on General Hospital, along with her Father Todd - who also made the transition from One Life to Live TV show to General Hospital.
Starr got very intimately friendly with me but I stopped her, let the office by the front door, crossed the street, and then went back by way of the back door to the office because I didn't know which doorway was the front door, and eventually, I discovered that the way out of this office the easy way was through the first office where the man was playing the guitar once more and he was friends with Starr and when I left the office to go to the ladies room, he said, "I'll meet you at the next eclipse."
Starr's Father Todd was following me but I turned into the ladies room and he couldn't come inside there.
The meaning of Todd is FOX
FOX = 666
The meaning of Starr is evidently 'star'
The Annular eclipse of 2012 went across the United States and through California north of where I live, so we didn't see it.
The Total Solar eclipse of 2012 is November 13th, and the map shows it going across the ocean just above New Zealand and Australia - which is farther south than the 2002 eclipse was.
NOTE: The part of the dream where Starr got intimately friendly with me tells me that this November eclipse has something very special about it.
I'm glad its that far south, but Solar eclipses bring earthquakes, and that will not be good if it hits New Zealand again. They have had some very devestating earthquakes already in Christ Church, New Zealand.
185 people were killed in the February 22nd quake of 2011, and 65 more people were killed in the December 20, 2011 quake.
Now I wish I knew the music the man was playing on his guitar and singing.
The song I was playing on the moon page prior to going to sleep is Alive, Alive, Oh.... It's the story of Molly Malone who died of a fever in 1790 in Dublin, Ireland: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Molly_Malone I don't know what the connection is, except perhaps the song title.
Here is the Dubliners singing it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vdxLxnhGnvo&feature=related
As long as we are doing Irish songs, here is the final performance from RIVERDANCE: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w8EXDtoGfrs&feature=related
The woman are appropriately all dressed in black and the men in black and white.
Riverdance Thunderstorm http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SevfZ5gCUnY&feature=related
These men are all dressed in black
Here is Riverdance in Reel Around the Sun http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9yE6fshkTLU&feature=related
This song, with the lyrics about coming to Earth gave me extreme chills while listening.
These dancers are dressed in black and dark brown in front of a blazing sun.
The eclipse of November 13th is very significant.

On November 13th the solar eclipse will be the last one before zero point 2012 and
it will be the final and complete soul magnetizing switch for mankind. If you have been
following my articles at www.scribd.com/gvano1165 you would know that I was led to
say that eclipses are used as gene switches for the collective body of mankind similar to
the ones used in our individual bodies for the switching on of stem cell. This is the
moment of perfection of our species. These eclipses have a collective effect on our
species and just as stem cells can be triggered to make any part of the body the location
on the earth and the time of the eclipse does the same thing.
The November 13th eclipse is related scripturally to 1 Corinthians 13:10-12 which
says “But when that which is perfect is come, (completion of the New Testament) then
that which is in part (Old Testament) shall be done away. When I was a child, I spoke as
a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, (21st
century) I put away childish things now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to
face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.” The glass
darkly is the etheric ocean (Edger Cayce’s Akashic Record). Jesus said the truth will
make us free and at the end of the age all mysteries will be uncovered. The word
“apocalypse” means the uncovering. The biggest mystery is our subconscious mind and
on zero point 2012 time will momentarily stop on earth and we will be looking at the
Ether as a sea of glass. This is where Cayce said all information is recorded and called it
the Akashic Record. In my articles I showed this point in time as when the circle of
processional wobble is at its maximum ark distance from the galactic center and earth is
being slowed down to a stop as it goes around the corner to start on its way back towards
the galactic center. The pull of gravity from the galaxy center was being opposed by
earth. This is the zero point and we on earth go through an eternal moment. We will be as
we set there looking at our selves in a mirror. As it says we will know ourselves and we
will judge ourselves. This is emulated in the scriptures at Luke 15:11-32 this is the point
where the “Prodigal Son” decides to go back home to his fathers house. “But the father
said to his servants, ‘Quick! Bring the best robe and put it on him. Put a ring on his
finger and sandals on his feet. 23 Bring the fattened calf and kill it. Let’s have a feast and
celebrate. 24 For this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’
So they began to celebrate.” You may want to read the full story and see how it fits the
moment just described.
This is that gate to heaven everybody is looking for. This is the etheric fire that
Jesus baptized with. Who will stop there and who will go through?
I was led to show that in the “Transfiguration Scene” Elijah emulated the sun and
Moses emulated the moon of an eclipse. It is written the Jews seek signs (with the two
natural eyes by the light of the sun) Greeks seek wisdom (with the third eye by the light
of the Ether) the Old Testament was written in Hebrew and the New Testament was
written in Greek. During an eclipse the moon hides the visible light of the sun and only
the light of the coronal glow-ray-fire of Jesus which comes from molting iron core of the
sun as a magnetizing life force that is connected to the rod of iron as the scepter of Jesus
which He will rule and glorify the nations with.
As was mentioned a few paragraphs back the eclipse switching is time and
location sensitive on the surface of the earth as though it was targeting certain stem cells.
This location is pinpointed and described very well in the movie “Apocalypse Island. “
The trailer of the movie can be seen at:
Explanation: This month's New Moon brought a total solar eclipse to parts of planet Earth on November 13 (UT). Most of the total eclipse track fell across the southern Pacific, but the Moon's dark umbral shadow began its journey in northern Australia on Wednesday morning, local time. From along the track, this telescopic snapshot captures the Moon's silhouette in skies over Queensland along the Mulligan highway west of Port Douglas. Almost completely covered, the Sun's disk is seen still surrounded by a hint of the faint solar corona. Planet-sized prominences stretch above the active Sun's edge. Sunlight streaming through gaps in the rugged profile of the lunar limb creates the brilliant but fleeting Baily's Beads.

THE NOVEMBER 13, 2012 ECLIPSE
This map shows the path of the Total Solar Eclipse of 2012 Nov 13. The northern and southern path limits are blue and the central line is red. The yellow lines crossing the path indicate the position of maximum eclipse at 10-minute intervals. The four-way toggle arrows (upper left corner) are for navigating around the map. The zoom bar (left edge) is used to change the magnification. The three buttons (top right) turn on either a map view, a satellite view or a hybrid map/satellite view.
The green marker labeled GE is the point of Greatest Eclipse. Click anywhere on the map to mark a position and calculate the eclipse times there. Move the cursor over a marker to reveal the eclipse circumstances for that position. The marker predictions can also be viewed in a new window via the Eclipse Times Popup button. You can select and copy this infomation to paste into a word processor. All markers can be removed using the Clear Markers button above. Choose the Large Map check box to produce a bigger map (for users with large monitors and fast internet connections). For more information, see Google Eclipse Map Instructions.

Predictions for the Total Solar Eclipse of 2012 Nov 13 were generated using the VSOP87/ELP2000-82 solar and lunar ephemerides and a value of ΔT = 67.9 seconds. seconds. The accuracy of the northern and southern edges of the eclipse path are limited to approximately 1-2 kilometers due to the lunar limb profile.
Eclipse calculations are by Fred Espenak, and he assumes full responsibility for their accuracy
A total solar eclipse will be seen from parts of Australia, New Caledonia, New Zealand, South America and Antarctica on November 13–14, 2012. It will be November 14 local time when the eclipse is visible in places west of the International Date Line.
The eclipse starts at 19:38 Universal Time (UT) on November 13 and ends at 00:46 UT on November 14, 2012.
The brightest shadow at the center of the moving shadow shows the area where the annular solar eclipse is most visible: The eclipse’s visibility is 50 percent or more. The outermost area with the lightest shading shows where the eclipse’s visibility is between zero and 50 percent.
Click on the play button to view the animation. The pause button can also be used to temporarily suspend the animation.
The World Clock’s Time Zone Converter helps you find when the eclipse will occur in your local time. Universal Time (UT), a timescale based on the Earth’s rotation, is about 0.65 seconds behind Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) during most of November 2012. UTC is in the time zone converter.
This solar eclipse will be visible in northern Australia and the South Pacific Ocean. The best place to view the total eclipse will be the city of Cairns, in Queensland, Australia, which will experience about 2 minutes of totality at about 20:38 UT, or 06:38 AEST, on November 14. The nearby town of Port Douglas will also experience the eclipse and will host a solar eclipse marathon run to coincide with the event. See our tips on viewing an eclipse.
Parts of Australia and New Zealand that will see a partial view of the eclipse include:
You can also see the weather for these places, also found in the World Clock, closer to the eclipse’s date. After crossing the South Pacific, the eclipse’s path ends at about 800km west of Chile at 23:48 UT.
The penumbral eclipse (P1) starts at 19:37:58 UT and the partial eclipse (U1) starts at 20:35:08 UT.
The total eclipse (U2) starts at 20:37:03 UT, and the point of greatest eclipse occurs over the Pacific Ocean (latitude 39°57.6’S, longitude 161°20.2'W) at 22:11:48 UT. At this instant, the axis of the Moon's shadow passes closest to Earth's centre. The maximum duration of totality is 4 minutes 2 seconds.
The total eclipse (U3) ends at 23:46:27 UT followed by the end of the partial eclipse (U4) at 23:48:24 UT. The penumbral eclipse (P4) ends at 00:45:34 UT.
This eclipse is one of 4 eclipses in 2012. Other eclipses for the year are:

Astrologers may someday be of invaluable service in forecasting earthquakes. The central concerns in protecting humanity from the terrible devastation are location, magnitude, and time. Astrology, as the study of cycles, presumes to understand when events happen better than any other discipline, yet our track record for predicting earthquakes isn’t any better than what seismologists can do. As for discerning location and magnitude, these too are elusive goals among astrologers who monitor earthquake activity, though numerous theories and techniques abound.
A supermoon is the coincidence of a full moon or a new moon with the closest approach the Moon makes to the Earth on its elliptical orbit, resulting in the largest apparent size of the moon's disk as seen from Earth. The technical name is the perigee-syzygy of the Earth-Moon-Sun system. The term "supermoon" is not an astronomical one, but one that originated in modern astrology. The association of the Moon with both oceanic and crustal tides has led to claims that the supermoon phenomenon may be associated with increased risk of events such as earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. However, the evidence of such a link is widely held to be unconvincing.
The Moon's distance varies each month between approximately 357,000 kilometers (222,000 mi) and 406,000 km (252,000 mi) due to its elliptical orbit around the Earth (distances given are center-to-center).
According to NASA, a full moon at perigee is up to 14% larger and 30% brighter than one at its furthest point (apogee).
The name SuperMoon was coined by astrologer Richard Nolle in 1979, arbitrarily defined as:
The term supermoon is not used within the astronomical community, which use the term perigee-syzygy or perigee moon. Perigee is the point at which the Moon is closest in its orbit to the Earth, and syzygy is a full or new moon, when the Earth, the Moon and the Sun are aligned. Hence, a supermoon can be regarded as a combination of the two, although they do not perfectly coincide each time. On average, about once a year the moon becomes full within a few hours of perigee.
The combined effect of the Sun and Moon on the Earth's oceans, the tide, is greatest when the Moon is either new or full. At lunar perigee the tidal force is somewhat stronger, resulting in perigean spring tides. But even at its most powerful this force is still relatively weak causing tidal differences of inches at most.
As the tidal force follows an inverse-cube law, that force is 18% greater than average. However, because the actual amplitude of tides varies around the world, this may not translate into a direct effect.
Certain prognosticators have moved the goalposts to within 1 or 2 weeks of a supermoon to suggest a causal relationship with specific natural disasters such as the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami and the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami. However in both cases the Moon was actually farther from the Earth than average. No evidence has been found of any correlation with major earthquakes.
