Sheila of Satin Crystals behind a stick hanging with yellow jasper, red jasper and bloodstone sun earrings Nothing brightens up your day like the glorious sun.

While Lunar Eclipses and Supermoons are popular spiritual events, Solar Eclipses are even more rare and powerful. The sun is 400 times larger than the moon and reigns king as the center of the solar system.

Many positive benefits await you during these rare Solar Eclipses. Do not miss out. Just imagine what your solar-charged sun crystals can do for you.

Let's learn about Solar Eclipses and how to harness this bright energy with healing crystals. Get Sun Crystals at Satin Crystals now so you have them in time for the rare 2020 Solar Eclipses. 

When are the Solar Eclipses of 2020?

There are only two Solar Eclipses for 2020. The first is an Annular Solar Eclipse that happens on June 21st. The final is a Total Solar Eclipse that takes place on December 14th. 

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

What is the Definition of a Solar Eclipse?

A Solar Eclipse is when the moon travels between the sun and earth. From our view here on Earth, the sun becomes blocked partially or fully. A shadow is created that looms over the Earth, darkening it. It 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 and "Annulus".

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

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. 

What is the Spiritual Meaning of the Sun?

The sun is the source of all life on earth and possibly the entire Milky Way. It's no wonder that the sun has been worshiped and revered since the beginning of humanity. The sun is considered a creator that shines life down on the deities of many traditions, from Krishna, Moses, Jesus, Mohammad, Buddha, and others.

Whereas the moon is believed to be a feminine yin energy, the sun is the ultimate masculine yang energy. Think Apollo, Ra, Horus, 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. 

In crystal healing, the sun activates your Sacral Chakra and Solar Plexus Chakra. It opens up the flow of sexuality, creativity, and emotional happiness toward everyday life. 

What is the Spiritual Meaning of a Solar Eclipse?

When the Solar Eclipse takes place, it is spiritually a time for you to see the light. New revelations come to the surface, which is the ideal time for your soul to grow.

People become comfortable in their everyday routine, but one of the larger purposes of human living is to keep learning the lessons of life. The Solar Eclipse creates a ring of fire that ignites your inner Chi energy.

Solar Eclipse is the perfect time for artistic creations, business innovation, and starting new healthy life habits. Get off the sofa, get out of the rut, and be the creator you were meant to be!

Because the moon plays a prominent role in the Solar Eclipse, it is a rare moment in time that both entities conjoin high in the sky together. On a larger scale, it is a message for humanity to come together after being so far apart for so long. The Eclipse shows us that we are all one, under one sun. It brings us a complete balance between yin and yang, individually and as a society on earth. 

What is the meaning of the Sun in Astrology?

Being the center of the Solar Plexus, the sun is the puppet master of the Milky Way. It is the Astrological ruler, and hence sun activity plays a prominent role in your zodiac sign.

    Why is Sunstone Important for the Solar Eclipse?

    Just like Moonstone goes with the Lunar Eclipse, Sunstone is a critical crystal to have for the Solar Eclipse. Its pink and orange flashes shine like shimmering gems of light as it funnels the energy of the sun down into your hands. 

    Sunstone is a symbol of the sun because it has energy and light within the stone. It is a warm and powerful crystal of awakening consciousness.

    During the rare Solar Eclipse, it is the time to shift your thinking and progress as a person and as a soul. Sunstone helps open your mind to this monumental change.

    This gemstone is so sunny that it is also known as Heliolite, named after the sun. It is not a common stone, so you may not be aware of its mesmerizing aventurescence until you are basking in its beauty. 

    Sunstone opens your Sacral and Solar Plexus chakras. The Sacral chakra is your energy flow of sexuality and creativity. Like the sun, it has the functions of life and creation. Your Solar Plexus Chakra (literally named after the sun energy), is about finding happiness and emotional balance in everyday life. Just as the sun shines every day, so is the chance for your happiness to shine today- even if yesterday was dark.

    For all Solar Eclipses, you just can't be without the proper crystal- Sunstone. 

    Where Can I Buy Real Sunstone?

    How do I Charge Sun Crystals in the Solar Eclipse?

    Most crystals are energized and charged by the sun. When a Solar Eclipse takes place, you get the bonus energy of both the sunlight and the moonlight. These vibes infuse your crystals and keep them buzzing with superpowers for a time to come.

    Visit our Crystal Care Instructions before you charge your stones in the Solar Eclipse. This way, you will know how to clean them energetically beforehand. You want the gemstone to be a blank slate before you begin. 

    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 upon 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.
