What is a Solar Eclipse?

A Solar Eclipse is when the moon travels between the sun and the earth. From our perspective, the sun becomes partially or fully blocked. A shadow is created that looms over the Earth, darkening it. A Solar Eclipse can happen only during the New Moon.

What is an Annular Solar Eclipse?

During an Annular Solar Eclipse, the moon covers the center of the sun. Only the outside ring of the sun is showing, creating a ring of fire. This ring is called an "Annulus."

Depending on what part of Earth you are on, you might be lucky enough to see the total Annular phenomenon. It will look like the moon is just partially covering the sun from most views. 

What is a Total Solar Eclipse?

Whereas in the Annular Eclipse, the sun is partially blocked, in the Total Solar Eclipse the New Moon completely blocks the sun. It casts the darkest shadow, known as the "Umbra", and Earth becomes as dark as night. This will happen at some point on Earth, while at other locations it will appear as a partial Eclipse. 

When are the Solar Eclipses of 2024?

There are only two Solar Eclipses for 2024. They are as follows:

  • April 8, 2024 (Total)

  • October 2, 2024 (Annular)

The next Total Solar Eclipse to cover North America will be August 23, 2044.

Depending on what part of the world you live in, you can find out exactly when the eclipse starts and ends.

What is the spiritual meaning of a Solar Eclipse?

When the Solar Eclipse takes place, it is a chance for you to see the light. New revelations come to the surface. Your soul has an opportunity to grow.

The everyday routine may be comfortable but your larger purpose as a human being is to learn lessons throughout life. The Solar Eclipse enhances your artistic creations, business innovation, and healthy life habits. 

Get off the sofa, out of the rut, and be the creator you were meant to be!

The moon plays a prominent role in the Solar Eclipse. It is a quick moment when the sun and moon team up. They send a message asking humanity to come together after being pulled apart for too long.

The eclipse shows you that we are all teammates under one sun. The Solar Eclipse creates a ring of fire that ignites your inner chi. It brings you a complete balance between yin and yang, individually and as a society on earth. 

What are the 3 Solar Eclipse Crystals?

During the Solar Eclipse, you may observe what is known as the "ring of fire". This ring is a symbol of infinite wisdom, cycles, and new beginnings. It puts you back in touch with your soul's purpose and asks you to think philosophically.

These 3 red fire stones are best aligned to the energy of rare Solar Eclipses: 

red jasper sphere
Red Jasper: The reason Red Jasper is the stone for the Solar Eclipse is that it best represents that bright and eternal flame of fire. As the sky basks in a momentary glow of red, your Red Jasper will absorb these powerful rays and store them within its crystalline structure. 

fire quartz sphere

Fire Quartz: Like Red Jasper, Fire Quartz brews with the rays of the sun. Encased in clear crystal, the fiery minerals ignite your passion for life, learning, and the Universe. Not only a beauty to behold, but Fire Quartz is also a stone of neverending fascination. 

red garnet sphere

Garnet: Red Garnet is a luxurious Solar Eclipse stone. This gem reminds you that life is precious and short. The sun provides you with all the material wealth you need. You should indeed indulge in the fine wines of the earth while you're here. The abundance element of the sun becomes yours through Garnet.

How do I charge crystals in the Solar Eclipse?

Most crystals are energized and charged by the sun. When a Solar Eclipse takes place you get dual energy of both sunlight and moonlight. These vibes infuse your crystals with superpowers.

Visit your Crystal Care Instructions before you charge your stones in the Solar Eclipse. Learn how to cleanse them energetically before charging.

On the morning of the Solar Eclipse, place your crystals in the garden or windowsill. Leave them there throughout the entire event of the Eclipse. Once they have been charged by the Solar Eclipse, you can program your crystals with the intentions you desire.

Can I gaze into the Solar Eclipse?

No. You should never look at a Solar Eclipse directly, as the UV radiation can burn the retinas in your eyes. This causes damage or even blindness. You need proper safety equipment like special eclipse glasses or pinhole projectors.

The only time you can look at an eclipse with the naked eye is during the Total Eclipse. Even so, just during the time that there is totality and not when the sun begins to emerge from behind the Moon.

Do your research before attempting to look at any eclipse, with or without equipment.

Will I see the Solar Eclipse?

See the interactive map to find out if you can observe the Solar Eclipse from your location. A Solar Eclipse will look different depending on where on Earth you are.

Even if you can't see the eclipse from your place, the solar energy spreads equally across the Earth so you will feel it, and so will your crystals.

What is the Sun?

The Sun is a 4.5 billion-year-old star and the biggest object in the Milky Way. It is a hot orb of hydrogen and helium. Located at the center of the solar system, the Sun is about 93 million miles from Earth. It is the energy source of life on the planet.

What is the spiritual meaning of the sun?

The sun is a steady source of life and comfort that you can count on. Even when the clouds block your view of the sun, you feel good knowing it rises each morning and sets each night.

The sun is the source of all life on Earth and possibly the entire Milky Way. It has been worshiped since the start of humanity. The sun is considered a creator. It shines life down through many deities of historic traditions. Think Apollo, Ra, Horus, and Surya- all of the Sun Gods of different cultures. They symbolize Life, Power, Energy, Force, Clarity, and Self.

On a personal level, solar energy is used to bring clarity to your life situations if you ever find yourself lost or confused. It also brings you motivation to get up, start the day, and be productive. 

The sun activates your Sacral chakra and Solar Plexus chakra in crystal healing. It opens the flow of sexuality, creativity, and emotional happiness toward everyday life.
