Sun = power, light, energy, strength
Moon = emotions, shadow, introspection, fears, dreams
Let’s look at it as simply as we can: The solar eclipse is when the moon passes between the sun and earth. Seemingly covering the sun for brief period.
This tells us that we may feel a need to go inward at this time and deal with the tides that have built up inside of us. Life is not always smooth sailing and the moon is here to remind us of that gravitational pull it has on us.
We can see the energetic effects of the eclipse a few days before and after it occurs.
With everything negative and hurtful that has been going on in the world, I felt compelled to add two cards to represent how we can be a beacon of light at this time of darkness (6). And a card to represent a special message (from the deity, energy, guide of your choosing) to humanity. Feel free to pull 2 cards at the end here, one for you & one for humanity.
Out of all my spreads this is one of them that I’m really curious to see what everyone pulls. Please feel free to share this spread on social media and tag/message me with your results or send me an email!
Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word happy would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness. It is far better take things as they come along with patience and equanimity. – Carl Jung
