A superb astronomic phenomenon! A total solar eclipse will occur on Friday, March 20th, on the same date a the March 2015 equinox. The moon will turn new only 14 hours after reaching lunar perigee – moon’s closest point to Earth in its orbit – and its shadow will hide the sun.
The new supermoon will swing right in front of the equinox sun on March 20, so that the moon’s shadow will fall on parts of Earth. The Supermoon is said to be not visible in the sky, but to have larger-than- average effect on Earth’s oceans.
The total solar eclipse will be visible in the Faroe Islands and Svalbard in the Arctic.
Partial solar eclipse will be visible in many parts of the North Hemisphere. Also in Greece.

Beware to protect your eyes!
The Solar Eclipse is the largest in 15 years and it will effect Germany most of all!
The eclipse, in which the moon comes between the sun and the Earth, will be most pronounced in Northern Europe, and the bulk of the apprehension is centered on Europe’s solar powerhouse: Germany. At the size of Montana and nearly the same latitude, Germany is an unlikely solar leader, but a concerted national effort to go renewable has put it at the forefront of solar power development. Its 1.4 million solar energy systems account for around a quarter of the solar capacity installed on Earth and solar provides about seven percent of the country’s power.During 75 minutes in the mid-morning — when the sun’s power is normally accelerating — Germany will instead rapidly lose solar generation.The last time a solar eclipse of this magnitude happened in Europe was in 1999, when solar accounted for less than one percent of Germany’s power consumption. Since then, the amount of solar photovoltaic power installed in Europe has gone from a marginal amount to over 90 gigawatts.

“Like our ancestors before us, we are being called to pause with reverence and tune in to the greater cosmic cycles that we are a part of.
Pisces energy encourages us to dream and vision what we can contribute to create the world we wish to inhabit.
From simple acts of kindness, beginning with the Self, the revolution will birth forth from within each of us. For as we heal, we help others heal. As we shift our vibrations, we contribute in unseen ways to uplifting the energetic web that connects us all.” (full article Mystic Mamma)
