With a solar eclipse looming, we’ve been delving into this rare cosmic event is and what its powerful energy could mean for us.

A solar eclipse happens when the Moon passes between the Earth and the Sun, blocking out some or all of the Sun’s light. This occurs when all three celestial bodies align in a straight line, with the Moon casting a shadow on the Earth. During a total solar eclipse, the Sun is completely covered by the Moon, creating a brief period of darkness during the day that can be observed from different parts of the world. On 8th April 2024, America and Mexico fall directly in the Moon’s shadow and the opportunity to see a total eclipse. Frustratingly for us in the UK and Ireland, it will only be partially visible at sunset, just before the sun falls below the horizon, but if you can, try to make most of this rare cosmic spectacle for there isn’t another partial eclipse until 2025 – and the next total eclipse is in 2090!

“This cosmic alignment ignites the flames of passion, courage, and initiative within us”

Solar eclipses have long captured human fascination and awe, often regarded as potent moments of cosmic energy. Ancient cultures imbued these celestial events with spiritual significance, viewing them as opportunities for personal and collective transformation. Even in modern times, the allure of a solar eclipse persists, inviting us to tap into its energy for introspection, growth and renewal.

Astrologically, the solar eclipse on April 8th occurs in the sign of Aries, the fiery trailblazer of the zodiac. This cosmic alignment ignites the flames of passion, courage, and initiative within us, urging us to embark fearlessly on the journey of self-discovery. It serves as a cosmic reminder to harness the bold, pioneering spirit of Aries and step into our authenticity with unwavering confidence.

Journaling is a powerful tool for self-discovery.

While witnessing a solar eclipse first-hand can be a mesmerizing experience, you can still harness its power from the comfort of your own home through intentional rituals. Here are some practices to help you connect with the transformative energy of a solar eclipse:

1. Set Intentions: 

What areas of your life do you seek to transform or manifest? Take note of your desires, and aspirations, focusing on what you want to invite into your life during this time of heightened energy.

2. Meditate & Reflect:

Create a sacred space in your home where you can sit quietly. Close your eyes, take deep breaths, and visualize yourself surrounded by the cosmic energy of the eclipse. Allow yourself to release any fears or limitations holding you back and open yourself up to change.

3. Take a journal:

Journaling is a powerful tool for self-discovery. Reflect on any patterns or habits you wish to release, as well as the new beginnings you want to cultivate.

4. Use the elements:

Incorporate the elements of fire, water, earth, and air into your eclipse rituals to enhance their potency. Light a candle to symbolize the fire energy of transformation; take a purifying bath with sea salt or essential oils to cleanse your energy; connect with the earth by spending time in nature or tending to houseplants; and open windows to invite in fresh air and eclipse energy.

5. Cleanse Your Energy Field:

Try smudging with Sage or Palo Santo to clear your home of any stagnant or negative vibrations and make space for new energy. Check out this article from our WYLDE Energy expert Emma Lucy Knowles for some tips on energy cleansing.

6. Practise Gratitude:

Take a moment during the eclipse to express gratitude for the blessings in your life (big and small), for lessons learned and the abundance that surrounds you. Gratitude opens the heart and welcomes more blessings.

Make space for new energy by cleansing your space.

Remember that the power of a solar eclipse lies not only in the cosmic alignment of celestial bodies but also in our conscious intention and alignment with its energy. By engaging in these home rituals you can tap into the transformative potential of the eclipse and initiate positive changes in your life.
