E is for Eclipse

A total eclipse is what we see when the Earth’s shadow completely blocks the moon and it goes full dark for a period of time. Many times the moon looks red as the event takes place. This is what many people think of when they hear the words “lunar eclipse” and it has been an indication of major events in many cultures for a long time.

There are many mentions of eclipse in myths, legends and folklore.

Some practitioners see the eclipse period, which is generally pretty short, as being the equivalent of an entire lunar cycle packed into one brief event. In some modern magical traditions , a lunar eclipse is considered a sort of metaphysical bonus round – in other words, any spell work you do during this period is amplified and has a bit of extra power behind it.

Are you looking forward to the next eclipse?
