Happy Monday, friends! If you’re living in the States, then you know today is the day people have been talking about for years! It’s the first time since 1918 that we’ll experience a coast to coast total solar eclipse! Can you tell I’m super excited? Did the three consecutive exclamation marks give it away? Just as it was during last month’s new moon, today marks an incredibly magical moment, one that people (ahem, astrologists and astrology followers) believe has the power to bring about supernatural change. It’s a time when believers encourage us to set clear intentions or even capture the magic to use when we need it most. Whatever today means to you, whatever this rare opportunity may or may not bring, it also falls at a time when many students are heading back to school. I know it’s hard to believe summer has already come (or is quickly coming) to an end, and while you’ll have papers to write, equations to solve, and extracurriculars to tackle, this total solar eclipse could be just what you need. We’re nearly four months away from 2018. Have you accomplished any of your goals? What’s stopping you from reaching your dreams? Maybe it’s will-power? Maybe it’s focus? Maybe it’s direction? Maybe it’s just you standing in your own way? Whatever it is, perhaps this is the perfect time–a special time–to reevaluate your goals, ask the universe for guidance, articulate your dreams, and do what needs to be done for them to manifest. And if you get to sprinkle a little total eclipse magic over them beforehand, then that’s even better, right? So, here’s to a magical year– may we each discover our purpose, may we make this world a better and brighter place, and may we find true happiness, prosperity, and success. May it be so.
How will you celebrate the eclipse? What are you hoping will come to pass this year? Comment below!
