A spring equinox solar eclipse on 20 March

For readers in Europe 20 March next week marks a natural double-event: the Spring Equinox and a solar eclipse.

The North of this world enjoys the Spring Equinox when day and night are equal on 20 March, whilst the South of this world moves towards Winter with the Autumn Equinox.  In the late morning 20 March Europe, with parts of Asia and Africa, will be rewarded with a solar eclipse plunging day into darkness over a period of two hours.  Svalbard in Norway and the Faeroe Isles will have a full solar eclipse, whilst locations such as London will experience a partial eclipse with as much as 90% of the sun blocked out.

  1. What is a spring equinox? I’m not sure I’ve seen one. I feel solar eclipses are forerunners of a new age.Unfortunately could’nt see them at this time in this part of the world. I think most Satanists can intuitively tune into nature’s unrest and learn so much. It’s beautifull.

    • An equinox is when day and night are an equal 12 hours each. The extremes are the Summer Solstice where it is the longest day, and the Winter Solstice when it is the shortest day.
