When envisioning this event, as it was just a thought sparked out of the ether, the date of March 8th was very clear and present to us as the date for Altogether: We Are One. What we had yet to figure out, was how important this day was on it’s own.
To start, March 8th is International Women’s Day across the globe. In 2016, the UN’s theme is “Make It Happen.” To celebrate equality and initiative aligns with the goals of Altogether: We Are One so synchronistically, that it was a pleasant surprise to find this day coinciding with our event. But that’s just the beginning.
Additionally, March 8th marks the beginnings of the first of this year’s six supermoons. In addition to the new moon, the moon will be at it’s closest approach to the earth on this day. But the moon isn’t the only one celebrating a milestone day. Tuesday will also be a Total Solar Eclipse, with Hawaii being one of the two states in the U.S. that has the pleasure of viewing the tail end of this amazing astrological event.
Last, but certainly not least, our evening skygazing will have a guest of honor as Earth passes between the sun and Jupiter. This is known as Jupiter in Opposition and usually coincides with Jupiter being at it’s closest approach to the Earth. Jupiter will be the second brightest planet in the sky, next to Venus, but as Venus only appears in the morning, Jupiter will be shining it’s light on us all night! Using binoculars, we will be able to view four of Jupiter’s moons as well!
With so many synchronistic astronomical and global events coinciding on this day, it is sure to be matched by no other. We’re looking forward to all of you joining us.
LASTLY! We’ve lowered the price! Come one and all and help us to begin this golden grid of love and light!
