Annular Solar Eclipse over New Mexico 

What is this person doing? In 2012 an annular eclipse of the Sun was visible over a narrow path that crossed the northern Pacific Ocean and several western US states. In an annular solar eclipse, the Moon is too far from the Earth to block out the entire Sun, leaving the Sun peeking out over the Moon’s disk in a ring of fire.

To capture this unusual solar event, an industrious photographer drove from Arizona to New Mexico to find just the right vista. After setting up and just as the eclipsed Sun was setting over a ridge about 0.5 kilometers away, a person unknowingly walked right into the shot. Although grateful for the unexpected human element, the photographer never learned the identity of the silhouetted interloper. It appears likely, though, that the person is holding a circular device that would enable them to get their own view of the eclipse. The shot was taken at sunset on 2012 May 20 at 7:36 pm local time from a park near Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA. Tomorrow another annular solar eclipse will become visible, this time along a path crossing Africa and Madagascar.

Burghley Horse Trials 2016 | First vet-check | © @nicomorgan

Eventing Nation is reporting that France’s Arthur Duffort (here with HERBST GOLDEN ECLIPSE) and Great Britain’s Becky Woolven (trotting her gelding CHARLTON DOWN RIVERDANCE) won the Best Dressed Awards at the 1st horse inspection.

I didn’t know such awards existed but here we are

CS kiss prompts: stomach + hipbone kisses


It takes him a moment to settle in to what exactly he’s feeling as he watches her move about their kitchen. With her bare feet padding along the hard wood, looking slightly rumpled in her light blue flannel pajamas and hair piled high atop her head, she looks more beautiful than if she was back in her ball gown from Camelot. As stunning as she was that night, what he sees know, this is his Emma, without walls or armor. She looks…content.

Content is not something he’s ever known how to feel, the idea so foreign he feels a bit winded at the realization that he’s finally found its meaning.  All this grand talk of happy endings and True Love somehow managed to eclipse the simple joy of this, this bone deep happiness with the state of life as it is. His heart doesn’t ache for something more, more adventure, more treasure or excitement. There is no ache now, just a beat that speeds up at every smile, touch, kiss - every look across the room meant only for him.

It’s taken nearly 300 years, but he finally knows what it is to be content.

She catches him staring as she turns from the sink to wipe her wet hands on the sides of her pants and he can’t stop the swoosh of his belly at her mild blush and the adorable twitching of her nose. His Emma is still not used to be wanted. That thought is still lingering in his mind as she crosses back over to him at the couch with the last bite of her toast clenched between her teeth.

Horoscope - Sept 1 2016

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You can gauge how well you’re currently doing by how much unexpected changes at work or in your health throw you off balance. The Virgo New Moon Eclipse rocks your 6th House of Daily Routine, requiring you to relinquish old habits that no longer support your goals. For example, a sudden health concern may be your body’s way of telling you to improve your lifestyle. Issues that arise should not be ignored or suppressed or they will only return later to cause more serious problems. Act now; sometimes later becomes never.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

You are currently engaged in a process of transmuting your inner joy into reality. In order to make your dreams come true, you must take the recent lessons you’ve learned and begin to put them into practice. A dramatic Virgo New Moon Eclipse falls in your 5th House of Love and Creativity, loosening up old patterns of playing it safe. Taking risks in self-expression can be very rewarding as long as you calculate the pros and cons before shaking up the energy. Don’t hold back when it comes to showing your feelings. Upsets are possible but a profound emotional breakthrough is well worth the effort.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

Domestic pressures bring you face-to-face with your dreams and your disappointments. The Virgo Solar Eclipse lands in your 4th House of Home and Family, revealing cracks in the foundation of your world. It might be scary to realize how far your beliefs have strayed from reality, but you can turn them around through deliberate action rather than panicking and trying to set everything right overnight. Change is inevitable; be honest with yourself and you’ll find the courage to transform a potential loss into a major gain. Letting go is safer than holding on.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

Although you might be dreaming of an exotic vacation, the only traveling you’ll likely be doing now will be a visit to the neighbors or a quick trip to a local market. The efficient Virgo New Moon Eclipse activates your 3rd House of Distractions, indicating a lot of movement without really going anywhere significant. Your greatest challenge comes from wasting time as you try to weed out the extraneous noise in your life. Don’t be afraid to say no to a good idea, for it’s more productive to concentrate your actions instead of scattering them. Energy flows where attention goes.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Watch your wallet and change your online passwords while the Virgo Solar Eclipse rattles your 2nd House of Money and Resources. You might even find yourself involved in a dispute over a bill or some other financial matter. It’s worth digging to the bottom of the issue even if it raises unpleasant feelings, since a resolvable misunderstanding may be the cause of the current conflict. With nebulous Neptune and realistic Saturn lurking in the picture, the more clarity you can bring to the matter now, the better.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Burying your head in the sand is tempting but there is no way to deny the truth today. A Solar Eclipse in your sign opposes surreal Neptune in your 7th House of Relationships, luring you into sharing a believable fantasy. But the Sun and Moon square Saturn, confronting you with an unavoidable reality check. Great things can develop from a failure or delay if you’re willing to step up your game and strive for excellence. Your disillusionment can be momentarily painful, but saying goodbye to old habits makes room for something or someone special to enter your life.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You are reminded of everything in your life that remains incomplete and all those things you do not understand, but you’re driven to explore the invisible metaphysical realms now to broaden your perspective and inspire your creativity. Although the Virgo Solar Eclipse stimulates your 12th House of Mystery, its connection to irrepressible Uranus encourages you to reveal your spiritual journey with your closest friends. In fact, you can’t rest until you make others aware of your recent experiences. True power is gained by sharing knowledge not hoarding it.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Being sidetracked by your desires and illusions gobbles up valuable time and money. Although the Virgo New Moon Eclipse makes a racket in your 11th House of Long-Term Goals, its opposition to fantasy-prone Neptune in your 5th House of Love can invite a dreamy romance. Refocusing your attention on practical matters makes sense in a rational world. Harder work may bring greater success, but your efforts might be best applied toward personal, rather than material, rewards. Sufi Mystic Rumi wrote, “What you seek is seeking you.”

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Unforeseen changes in your career path may catch you off guard today. You might not see the shift coming yet the concentrated energy of the Virgo New Moon Eclipse electrifies your 10th House of Public Status. This cosmic wake-up call puts you on notice to clean up your act and bring any uncertainties out into the open. It’s tempting to avoid a power struggle if you’re dealing with someone who isn’t treating you fairly. Nevertheless, reasserting your authority allows you to reclaim control over your professional life. Be a voice, not an echo.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Unexpected challenges to your belief system, sudden detours in travel plans, or an overload of new information can be quite upsetting to the status quo. The Virgo Solar Eclipse destabilizes your 9th House of Adventure with rapidly changing circumstances, flipping your normally rational thinking into indecision. On the positive side, unanticipated news will thrill you if you keep an open mind. Thankfully, establishing priorities and eliminating extraneous activities reduce the excess of sensory input you’re likely to receive. Clear out the cobwebs and jump into new experiences to accelerate your growth.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You think you know what is right, but now your knowledge could stand between you and happiness. The Virgo New Moon Eclipse polarizes your 8th House of Deep Sharing, insisting that you surrender your absolute certainty in order to get what you want. Imaginative Neptune’s opposition to the Sun and Moon asks you to leave your logic behind. True intimacy may be within your reach, but first you must open your heart. Admitting that you don’t have all the answers is a perfect place to start.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

The urgency for change can be especially intense these days. There’s a tremendous amount of planetary activity focusing on the Virgo New Moon Eclipse that hurls lightning bolts in your 7th House of Significant Others. Issues of fear and loss of control lead to further reevaluation of your relationships. Something may be ending, but it’s human to try to avoid difficult choices that intensify emotions. Nevertheless, it’s essential to get to the truth at the bottom of your soul. When you stand in a place of self-awareness, you are the master of your destiny.

How to watch this week's breathtaking 'ring of fire' solar eclipse
Don't miss this one.
By ALI SUNDERMIER, Business Insider

On September 1, as a dark shadow falls across the morning sky, a burning ring of fire will rise over Africa.

No, it isn’t heralding an apocalypse or any other brand of worldwide catastrophe (as far as we know). And there certainly won’t be any circus performers riding tigers through it. Instead, this astronomical phenomenon will be a result of something called an annular solar eclipse.

The legacy of the Dragon’s Force by CelestialRayna

Please support me: Become my Patreon

A new picture to Fairy Tail.

You can see the five Dragon Slayers of the 1st and 3rd generation: Natsu Dragneel, Gajeel Redfox, Wendy Marvell, Sting Eucliffe and Rogue Cheney in their Dragon Force. They are also standing in front of the Eclipse gate. I think you will understand why I choosed the Eclipse gate as background.

It was a really hard job again to draw this picture. This was so much work but I love it! And I also love the background. I hope you will appreciate this hard work.

I always wanted to draw a picture with all these five Dragon Slayers in their Dragon Force. But always Gajeel was missing. I drew this picture one week before Gajeel got his Dragon Force. I think I had the right feeling that Gajeel would get his Dragon Force very soon.

I hope you like it!

Fairy Tail 500 Predictions

https://youtu.be/LS059N6RtDY

This is a quick post on my prediction as to what will happen in Fairy Tail 500 follow the link up top to see my Youtube vid on the subject and don’t forget to like and subscribe (or dislike and keyboard rage if you can’t stand the cringe of my voice and bad jokes thats fine too lol).  So we all know Gray is pissed.  Pissed to the point of saying screw super sayin one I’m goin straight to two. All joking aside its clear Gray is far more powerful now than he has ever been and easily eclipses Invel at this point.  I predict that this will very much be a one sided fight between Gray and Invel with Gray gaining the upper hand very early.  I mean remember he was going toe to toe with him enough to hold him off with his devil slayer magic alone.  Now he is even more powerful.  But that is not what has me intrigued…

What has me intrigued is what will Invel do?  Remember the enemy always has a say in the battle, and if the previous chapter showed us anything, its that Invel is manipulative and coniving and will use peoples emotions against them.  I believe this will be no different.  Invel will quickly realize he is completely outmatched and Gray will be giving no mercy he will be out for blood.  However, Invel has one trick up his sleeve.  Gray’s loss of Juvia.

He witnessed the whole thing first hand and even though he is cold and calculating I can see him using this to his advantage.  He will play on Grays emotions right as he is about to kill him saying that if he kills him he will never know how to revive Juvia.  Gray will hesitate and listen as Invel tells him the story of how Zeref once had a brother 400 years ago and revived him in the form of END.  Gray will of course not care and say after he kills him he’ll go straight after the book until Invel reveals that END is Natsu.  Gray will then not believe him in the slightest until Invel shows him the very locket that Zeref showed him at the end of FT499 (Invel is a conniving little shit).  Broken psychologically, Gray will try to force Invel to tell him how to revive Juvia.  Invel will say that Zeref can easily do it however, he demands that he as a devil slayer kills END (Natsu).  The chapter will end here as a Gray is faced with the moral decision to potentially revive the woman he loves and fight his friends or continue to fight against the Sprigans and potentially never see Juvia again.  Now I could be 100% wrong but since fans have been clamoring for an END vs Gray fight this is the only way I can see it being credible and gives Gray a plausible reason to go after Natsu holding nothing back.
