What Can I Do For The Solar Eclipse- Aug. 21, 2017

💫I am getting many anons about this so I figured I may as well address them all at once.

🌙 I plan to make Solar Eclipse Water, using purified water left out during the duration of the eclipse. Eclipse Water is reportedly great for spells or enchantments involving transformation, change, or renewal.
🌙 I also intend to charge my crystal collection- IMPORTANT: note which crystals are okay in the sunlight and which really ought to be left in the shade. I plan to keep all my crystals outside but the sensetive ones in the shade.
🌙 I’ve read around that Eclipses are great for working in the spirit and shadow realm, and although I personally do not have experience with that, I’ve seen some posts going around that may interest those of you who work within those aspects.
🌙 I plan to take some time here to practice some self-reflection:
🌕 who I was
🌑 how I plan to retain or dismiss aspects of that self
🌕 who I hope to transform into.
🌙 Part of my practice involves movement. Whether it be yoga, hooping, dancing, any sort of movement that comes to me, I intend to harness the feeling and use it in my ritual of self-reflection.
🌙 Reportedly, during an eclipse, there is a feeling of stillness that can be sensed in the atmosphere. That stillness would be a great time to get into touch with something- whether it be your inner self, a spirit world, another relm, or something of the sort.
🌙 If you have your own ideas, tips, suggestions, or rituals for the solar eclipse, feel free to add on to this post!

💫 REALLY IMPORTANT NOTE: Do NOT look directly at the solar eclipse. It is dangerous for your eyes and could cause damage. You can still be damaged from the sun~ take proper care such as sunblock and appropriate viewing gear. Do your own research on ways to view the eclipse safely!

i’ve been in such a hooping rut lately, barely finding time to practice and feeling like it’s more of a chore than pleasure.  it felt so so good to be back in my circle, regardless of how sloppy or awkward I feel rewatching this video. whenever I don’t hoop for a while it makes me realize how important it is in my life, and reminds me that it will always be there even if i take time off.  thankful for this circle and all that it’s done for me~ :))
