I always look forward to solar eclipses. They are always marked in my calendar because they happen so rarely and when they do… I will not make the mistake of letting them go to waste!
A solar eclipse occurs during a new moon phase. But, it is not like any other new moon phase…
...it is a time when the energy of the moon is amplified and focused.
Which means the power of any spell is amplified if casted during this occurrence.
A solar eclipse is the perfect time for rituals of major transformation. I know I always think of the things I want to change and write them down in the weeks before it comes.
The rarity of the solar eclipse makes its powers more intense and its effects more long-lasting. So powerful, in fact, that eclipses shape the journey for the months to come.
So if you cast your new beginnings spell during a solar eclipse - expect a new beginning. There’s no more holding on to the past!
Solar Eclipse energy brings a welcome change and helps you wrap up the cycle that you’ve been on before it.
I always have a ritual ready for the coming solar eclipse. Especially one that heals me and helps me start over. Here’s a solar eclipse ritual for self-love and self-respect I’d like to share with you.
Solar Eclipse Ritual For Self-Love and Self-Respect
In order to use the amazing energy of the eclipse to your advantage, set your intentions and think about what new things you want to manifest for the year ahead.
