New Moon AND Solar Eclipse on Sept. 11

New Moon AND Solar Eclipse on Sept. 11
There's a new moon coming, and this month it's combined with the magic of a solar eclipse. This is only a partial eclipse, and will only be visible from South America, Antarctica and the South Atlantic. A solar eclipse takes place when the moon passes between the earth and the sun. A solar eclipse requires special equipment to watch safely, unlike the lunar eclipse we saw not too long ago, but it's still a good time for magical workings, even if you're not watching it.

If the moon represents the Mother, certainly the sun is a symbol of the Father. Strong with masculine energy, the sun was honored by many ancient cultures. Called Ra, Helios, Svarog, or any number of other names, the sun is the fire aspect in the sky. A solar eclipse signals great change and transition, so if there's something you want to see manifest, now is a good time for magical workings. Are you hoping to get a new job? Looking for an end to something unpleasant in your life? Trying to drop a bad habit? Get to work, then, because the dawn of a solar eclipse is a time of powerful energy!
