To gather experience over countless lifetimes.

We Realize who and what we really are, and come to behave like That.

Ignorance of That and associated bad habits result in mistakes and consequential suffering.

The accumulation of experience eventually brings us to realize that we are not separate from others, which forms habitual devotion to the ultimate welfare of all.

When is the next full moon?  What date is the Equinox this year?  Is the next new moon an eclipse?  And what time is that happening in my local time

These are questions occultists are constantly asking.  As a service to you, this website now has answers.

Want an email to remind you of the up-coming event you’re interested in?

I have created an online calendar of events that is of interest to occutists.  It shows times for luminary events, including full and new moon, eclipses, sun entering a new sign, equinox and solstice… automatically updated until the year 2026.  For witches, it also includes dates for sabbaths and esbat celebrations.

The web site tries to locate your position on the earth, and give you event times in your own local time.  For cases where the attempted location is incorrect, you are also given the times in UTC (Coordinated Universal Time), so that you can correct for your own timezone by yourself.  (Instructions are given on how to do this.)

Click here to see the calendar, or go to then click on the “Calendar” tab.

There is also an email subscription service, where you could be sent an email reminding you of upcoming events of interest on this calendar, 3 to 5 days before the events. Simply type your email address in the “Email Subscribe” box at the left of the website display.  You will be able to choose which luminary events you’re interested in.  Event notices are combined, so you won’t receive an email more often than once in a three day period, usually only once every week or two, depending on the events you’re interested in.

Whether you’re interested in the calendar or not, this “Email Subscribe” can also get you an email each time something new is added to the web-site. You don’t have to use an RSS service, just type your email address and press subscribe.  You’ll automatically receive an email each time something new is posted to the web site.

I have added the following capabilities to this website, possibly of use to readers:

  • AVATAR: Support for Gravatars and Twitter pictures added to comments.  If you have registered a picture to your email address with, or have a Twitter account with your email address, then when you post a comment here, your picture will automatically appear in your comment.
  • CELL PHONES: Support for PDA and cell phones added.  If you access this site with a PDA or cell phone, you should see a special format, designed specifically for your device.  It omits unnecessary graphics, but gives you access to all material, and still allows you to make comments.
  • TWITTER: Twitter support added, so that when new material is posted here, a tweet is automatically posted to Twitter.  So if you follow “meramun” from your Twitter account you’ll get a tweet every time something new is added here.  Then if you @reply to a tweet that came from this website, the reply will be posted to this website as a “comment”.
  • SHARE: Added a “share” button to all pages on this site.  When looking at a page in this website, “share” allows you to enter the page into your browser’s favorites, send an email to someone with the page’s URL in it, or share the page with others via Twitter, Facebook or a number of other social media services.
  • SUBSCRIBE: Added a “subscribe” button to the menu at the left of the site.  This allows you to use a number of different techniques for subscribing to an RSS feed that gets updated with every new post to this site.
