Lunar Eclipse Magic

The Lunar Eclipse is happening during the Full Moon in Cancer on Saturday January 11 at 6:21am in Melbourne, Australia.

A lunar eclipse is when during a full moon the sun and moon are in opposition, which means they they fall opposite in the Zodiac (called an opposition).

This lunar eclipse is what is termed a “penumbral” lunar eclipse which basically means the shadow of the earth bypasses the moon and therefore the shadow does not cover it.   This means from our perspective will be difficult to see the moon showing signs of the eclipse.  This is due to the colour of the moon being slightly lighter than the rest of the moon which isn’t obscured by the eclipse.  Therefore if you do want to have a good look at the moon during this time, I suggest a telescope or high zoom binoculars/camera.

The Magick of the Eclipse

Eclipse magick is when the energy is amplified due to the moon energies intermingling.  The Lunar Eclipse energies transition through the new and full moon phases during the eclipse, which enables the moon to cycle through the various stages of the moon and its magick.

The kind of magick you can perform during the Lunar Eclipse:

  • Liminal – magick worked between the darkness and the light.
  • Manifestation – setting goals, intentions and affirmations.
  • Breaking – curses, bad habits, bad relationships and connections.
  • Endings – energetic and physical.
  • Transformation – self/surroundings, spellwork and health encompassing all aspects of oneself (body/mind/spirit and emotion).
  • Devotion – to lunar or liminal Gods and Goddess.
  • Focus – personal and spiritual development along with illumination and psychic work (divination and magickal goals).

Since this eclipse is happening during a Cancer full moon things are going to culminate in huge emotional energies.

Use this time to be motivated to move things along when it comes to home-life and those which we consider family.  Good time to start or contemplate a move of hearth as well as connecting to family as long as you are emotionally prepared.  Best time to focus on inner emotional needs and building what is required for personal fruition.  Also use this time to work on positive and productive magick as doing otherwise during this highly emotional time could be very volatile if unprepared.


Simple Eclipse Magick

Charge any of your magickal items under the eclipse, which can then be used, when there is no eclipse to bring in those energies.

Simply put out a vessel of purified water or a quartz crystal, which you want imbued with lunar eclipse energies, under the moon, whilst repeating the following:

 

Lunar Eclipse energies of the moon –

Come and show me my foreseeable fortune,

Lunar Eclipse energies of the moon

Devoted I am to you during moment opportune.

Lunar Eclipse energies of the moon –

I ask you come down to bring me my boon.

Partial Lunar Eclipse

 

This year, so far, we have had the following eclipses :

January 6th 2019 – Partial Solar Eclipse

January 21st 2019 – Total Lunar Eclipse

July 2nd 2019 – Total Solar Eclipse

 

 

Coming up next week we have another lunar eclipse, this one being a partial one:

July 16th – 17th 2019 – Partial Lunar Eclipse

This upcoming partial lunar eclipse during the full moon is also occurring during mercury retrograde which is in Leo (July 7th to August 2nd).  So careful consideration should be made with respects to your communications, be it physical, verbal or written.  In other words be very specific with your intentions when creating magick of the lunar eclipse.

Earlier in the year I wrote a post about the magick of the lunar eclipse and the kind of magick you can perform during this time.  For more information on some simple lunar eclipse magick you can perform, click on the link below:

Magick of the Lunar Eclipse

I find this time quite apt for dedications to Gods who are liminal in nature and in my case, since I am a devotee to Hekate, I find it perfect for her.  Years ago I wrote a devotional hymn in her name and because its quite specific it can be used safely in order to dedicate yourself to her during this special moon phase. Please click below if you would like to go the page this hymn is on:

Devotional Hymn to Hekate

Finishing off the year, we have one final eclipse which is the annual solar eclipse:

December 26th 2019 – Annular Solar Eclipse
