Before we will discuss any possible effects on the individual, we should have a look at the mundane astrological implications of this eclipse. To be able to do this, we have to establish where the eclipse is likely to have its greatest effect. For this purpose we need to find out which countries or cities fall under the rulership of Pisces, the sign wherein the conjunction between Sun and Moon takes place. We also have to take into consideration that the eclipse’s visibility will greatly enhance its effect.


The Cashew Tree

The Cashew Tree was inspired by a restaurant that three friends in Bali.

The Cashew Tree was just really charming. A little enclosed garden full of happy people. The kind of gem you can only find hidden away in a hot and exotic place far, far from home.

The perfectly ripe pulp so thick you had to use the straw to scoop it up. These were, of course deadly, so utterly refreshing after a long day in the sun and so deliciously sweet they went down all too easily.
