Supermoon total solar eclipse March 8-9
From EarthSky, 2016
The moon turns new on March 8 or 9, 2016, depending on your time zone. The new moon happens one day before the moon reaches lunar perigee – the moon’s closest point to Earth in its orbit. Thus this new moon counts as a supermoon. It won’t be visible in our sky, but it’ll line up with the sun to create a larger-than-average effect on Earth’s oceans. Plus this new supermoon swings right in front of the sun, so if you’re at the right place on Earth, you might be able to view the new moon silhouette in front of the sun (but remember to use proper eye protection).

Through compassion from the god Lono, Koa was given two horns. His tail withered away which then made him a land creature. Persons under this sign are ambitious and likely to become successful.

Na Ao Opua – Kilokilo, Ka Haiki A Na Lani
FOR ENLIGHTENMENT: It seems that the symbols are of much greater scope (although we probably will not have realized the full scope for quite some time) than just basic level Kilokilo. Further research into the scope of the symbols allowed us to discover that they are extremely powerful. As the research continued, we found that meditation on the symbols in a certain order caused a shift in consciousness, as well as dramatic openings in the energy circuitry of the body. The symbols seem to do what the tradition suggests — they enlighten!
THE SYMBOLS: As we look at the names of the symbols 1, 2, and 3, we find that the name Uli appears in all three. Continue reading
What is Huna
By Tad James
In Hawai’i, the teaching of Huna was originally called Ho’omana (to make “Mana”, or life force energy). The word H’oo means to make.
