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.
First let’s find out what astrological sign the Sun will be passing during the eclipse. 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?
The problem 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. If you’re afraid to cast a spell because it could “backfire”, here’s my answer to that question in the Spells8 Forum: Fear destroys power.

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.
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?
