How do Solar Eclipse affect us?
Astrologers tend to agree that major cosmic events such as eclipses are interactive; they represent an activity also taking place within our self and consciousness. This is why some people may be drawn to casting spells during an eclipse, or engaging in rituals and other spiritual practices.
In June 2021 it’s Gemini, a house of communication. It is possible that you receive communications from old friends or family, or even open yourself up to contact from the spirit world. From an astrology point of view, it’s a good time for traveling, visiting family, starting learning a new language or making big decisions.
Can I cast a spell during an Eclipse?
Yes you can do whatever you want in your Practice /journey as a short answer. The thing with eclipses is that historically they have usually been considered bad omens. Lunar and solar eclipses were taken as signs of calamities and war so they are still associated with negative things by many people.
The good thing is that a solar eclipse only lasts for about 10 minutes and a lunar eclipse up to two hours. In case of doubt, it’s best to plan around it. Ultimately, your Magic is personal to you. What matters most is what you believe and how you feel during that time.

Spiritual Meaning of an Eclipse
A solar eclipse is a perfect alignment of the Sun and Moon. This is a powerful time because it represents a sacred union. The Sun is the enlightener who gives us light and warmth. The Moon is the measurer who helps us mark the passage of time and guides us in the darkness. Both have been given many names in history and around the world. For example, in Greek, Helios is the Sun and Selene is the Moon. Khonsu (Ancient Egyptian is the ancient Egyptian god of the Moon. His name means "traveler", and this may relate to the perceived nightly travel of the Moon across the sky or even Bastet who is another representation of the moon. And the sun god Ra could be called upon
Horus is another good god to call upon as he embodies elements of sun and moon
While typically the Sun and Moon affect us in different ways and times of the day, now they are working together. According to Michael Furie, when they are in the same general area in the sky, we are being “pulled upward” by both at the same time.
What to do During an Eclipse?
If you practice Lunar Magic, you’ll know that an eclipse always occurs during a New Moon, when the Sun and Moon are in conjunction. Spiritually, this lunar timing represents new beginnings, so you could hold an celebration to welcome and invite new energy, or cast a New Moon Spell.
you could harness this energy to perform a symbolic union of the Goddess and the God, symbolized by the coming together of the Sun and Moon.
Solar eclipses happen when the Sun casts the Moon’s shadow over the Earth. Types of rituals for solar eclipse Magic include Journaling or doing Shadow work, and meditating during the eclipse or doing a banishing spell.
You can use the energy of a lunar or solar eclipse to break curses, change bad habits, or banish a problem. Choose the thing you want to remove from your life and perform a banishing spell to eclipse an old habit. If you feel like doing so, cast a circle or do some protection spell work. As you can see, there are many different types of spells to do in an eclipse.

Solar Eclipse Divination Ritual and Spell
Set an intention and cast this spell for protection or guidance. You can do this ritual of Magic during a solar eclipse. If you’re viewing it outside wear eye protection or watch it online by finding a livestream or video recording.
White or silver candle
Yellow or gold candle
Pen and paper
HOW TO CAST THE SPELL
As you set the mood by burning some incense, light a white or silver candle to invite lunar energy, and a yellow or gold candle to invite solar energy.
State your question out loud. It can be a Yes/No question, or a question with multiple choices.
Five minutes before the start of the eclipse, cut your paper into small pieces. Write “Yes” in one of them and “No” in the other one (or write down all the different choices for a more complex question). Fold each piece of paper three or four times.
As the eclipse unfolds and it starts to get darker, hold the pieces of paper in your closed hand and press your fist firmly. Say:
"rays of wisdom, eternal pulse, Blessed be your energies, together at once.
Darkness of the moon, Strength of the sun, Horus* Guide my steps, and harm no one."
*(or spiritual beings of your choice )
As the light returns, slowly open your hand with your palm facing down. See which of the papers falls to the ground first. That will be your answer. If both fall at the same time or both are stuck in your hand, it means the answer is still up in the air. You may try another divination method.
These are the words that I use for this kind of spell they are always open to an interpretation that suits your journey/ Practice. When I want to super charge a spell I use specific gods related to the occasion to get their guidance in the course.
What to do with the leftovers of the spell?
Let the candles burn safely. Dispose of the papers and the candle remains, or paste the paper with your answer in your journal or Book of Mirrors or grimoire if you have one. I personally burn the other papers in the candles I feel it closes them as possibilities and hands them back to the universe or the got that u called upon. To me this creates a singular focus on the chosen answer.
