Today, we have a total solar eclipse that occurs over Southeast Asia and the western Pacific. This will be the longest eclipse of the twenty-first century, with totality occurring for 6 minutes and 39 seconds. Today is a prime time for magic, as eclipses are rare and wondrous events. Some see the eclipse as a time when the Sun god and the Moon goddess are embracing. It’s a great opportunity to work with the balance of masculine and feminine energies.
Even if you live in a part of the world where the Moon’s shadow doesn’t fall during this eclipse, you can still work magic for new opportunities and to bring change into your life. Light a white candle for the Sun god and a black one for the Moon goddess. Then repeat the verse:
As the Sun god and Moon goddess embrace today,
May new opportunities start to come my way,
During this eclipse, the Moon’s shadow is cast on the Earth,
Ushering in a time of balance, magic, and re-birth.
Allow the spell candles to burn out in a safe place.
