Eclipse Magick 101

Our days can feel like a crazy blender of distraction, stress, busyness and overwhelm.

The answer, is in the pure elegance of simplicity.

Eclipses are opportunities for major transformation since the energies of the lunations are more amplified and focused.


Partial solar eclipses happen when the Moon comes between the Sun and Earth, but the Moon only partially covers the Sun’s disk.

During a partial solar eclipse, the Moon, the Sun and Earth don’t align in a perfectly straight line, and the Moon casts only the outer part of its shadow, the penumbra, on Earth.
Only at New Moon

Solar eclipses can only happen at New Moon because the Moon passes between the Sun and Earth during that Moon phase.
Total solar eclipses occur when the New Moon comes between the Sun and Earth and casts the darkest part of its shadow, the umbra, on Earth. A full solar eclipse, known as totality, is almost as dark as night.
This means that you are working with new moon energy, which is great for getting rid of things and letting go. A solar eclipse does not have to be visible for you to work magic.
Eclipse, break
through the past
Smashing all
that held me fast.
Shadow come,
shadow go,
Take this nasty
thing I throw.

The New Moon is great for new beginnings, starting a new venture, initiating a new project or embarking on an adventure.

Under the New Moon, work with the new: the beginning of a new life, a new career, a new love, a new you.
A total lunar eclipse takes place when the Earth comes between the Sun and the Moon and covers the Moon with its shadow. When this happens, the Moon can turn red, earning it the nickname of Blood Moon.

The longest lunar eclipse of the century will happen on July 27, 2018.

Only at Full Moon
Total lunar eclipses happen only when: The Sun, Earth, and Moon are in a straight line, and there is a Full Moon.
A partial lunar eclipse happens when the Earth moves between the Sun and the Full Moon, but they are not precisely aligned. Only part of the Moon’s visible surface moves into the dark part of the Earth’s shadow.
This means you will be working with full moon energy. A lunar eclipse does not have to be visible for you to work magic.

Magic spells performed during lunar eclipses combine the power of the full and newmoons simultaneously.

The Full Moon is the time to really go for what you want. The Moon’s energy is incredibly powerful, and you can ask her to help you in nearly any request.

Eclipse water
The purpose of eclipse water is to bottle up all that energy and be able to use it for months after the event has passed.
Set your jar out as soon as the eclipse begins. While your water is collecting energy, set your intention. Put your water away once the eclipse is complete.

The eclipse is more than an opportunity to energize crystals as well!
