Navigating Eclipse Season: Self-Care Strategies for 2024 Solar and Lunar Eclipses





Hey there, beautiful souls ✨


Guess what? Eclipse season is back, and it's like a cosmic alarm clock ringing in changes, messing with our vibes, and giving us all a collective headache. With four eclipses hitting us in 2024, it's time to buckle up for a wild ride through the stars.




The Eclipse Lineup

We've got quite the lineup this year, soul family. First up, we've got the lunar eclipse in Libra on March 25, 2024, followed closely by the 'Great American Solar Eclipse' making its return on April 8, 2024, in fiery Aries. (my birthday 🥳) Then, we'll have a partial lunar eclipse in Pisces on September 17, 2024, kicking off a series that'll stretch into 2025. Finally, we wrap up the year with a solar eclipse in Libra on October 2, 2024. It's gonna be a whirlwind of energy, but all year long I'll be here giving you the tea, cuz that's what I do!



What's the deal with Eclipses?

You've probably seen the online chatter about eclipses bringing life-altering changes and unexpected twists. Well, let me tell you, social media isn't the only one hyping them up. Eclipses have been cosmic celebrities for eons, known for their power to shake things up. And let's face it, when the universe decides to throw us a curveball, it's natural to look for tips and tricks to dodge the cosmic chaos. That's where self-care steps in as our companion and as our shield.


Eclipse Basics: Solar vs. Lunar

Before we dive into self-care strategies, let's get our cosmic terms straight. Solar eclipses occur when the moon blocks the sun's light, while lunar eclipses happen when the Earth's shadow falls on the moon. Each eclipse type brings its own unique energy, but they both have the potential to rock our worlds and bring about significant changes.


When Are the Eclipses Happening?

For those planners out there (you know who you are), here are the dates for the 2024 eclipse season:

  • March 25, 2024: Lunar Eclipse in Libra

  • April 8, 2024: Total Solar Eclipse in Aries

  • September 17, 2024: Partial Lunar Eclipse in Pisces

  • October 2, 2024: Solar Eclipse in Libra





Navigating Eclipse Energy

Now, let's talk strategy. With all this cosmic upheaval, it's essential to prioritize self-care. Eclipse season can feel like an emotional rollercoaster, and taking care of your mental, physical, and spiritual well-being should be your top priority. That's why I've decided to list a few self-care rituals to see you through.


Should You Manifest During Eclipse Season?

In a word: nope. While manifesting is usually a go-to strategy during the lunar cycle, eclipses flip the script. They're all about destiny and fate, so trying to manifest during eclipse season is like trying to swim against a cosmic current. Instead, focus on grounding yourself, reflecting, and observing the cosmic drama unfolding around you.


Spiritual Practices for Eclipse Season

Okay, so manifesting's out. What's in? Think slow living, my friends. Eclipses have a way of stirring up inner turmoil, so now's the time to ground yourself and connect with your spiritual side. Meditation, mantras, mindfulness, chanting – you name it. Whatever helps you find your center in the midst of the cosmic chaos, go for it.





Self-Care Rituals for Solar Eclipses

When it comes to solar eclipses, think fresh starts, chance encounters, and breakthroughs. These cosmic events are all about shaking loose stale energy and setting the stage for new beginnings. Here are some self-care rituals to try:





  1. Solar Eclipse Ritual for Self-Compassion and Self-Love: Connect with your inner critic and rewrite the script with a self-compassion meditation. Focus on your strengths, traits, and everything else that makes you awesome. ( write a list, it helps to see your positives)

  2. Get Moving with Dance: Despite the headaches and energy drains, dancing can be a powerful way to stay grounded during a solar eclipse. Turn up the music and let your body do the talking. I don't care if you don't have rhythm, or you realize that you could never master tik-tok choreography (lol) just move babe!




3. Tarot for Clarity: Tap in with a solar eclipse tarot spread. The cards might reveal some truths you're not ready to face, but facing the darkness is the first step toward the light. if you prefer someone else to pull for you, book a personal reading here.


Self-Care Rituals for Lunar Eclipses

Lunar eclipses are all about emotional release, karmic rewards, and closure. They're like cosmic therapy sessions, revealing our deepest fears and desires. Here are some self-care rituals to try:


  1. Release Emotional Overwhelm: Dive deep into meditation to clear energetic blocks and alchemize your pain into light energy. It's like hitting the cosmic reset button for your soul.

  2. Cut Those Cords: Say goodbye to toxic bonds and connections with a cord-cutting ritual. Visualize those energy-sucking cords dissolving into the ether and reclaim your spiritual alignment.



3. Heal Your Aura with a Ritual Bath: Sink into a soothing bath infused with intention and let the healing energy of the lunar eclipse wash over you. It's like a spa day for your soul. Amp up your bath with our aromatherapy or skincare products here




Note** Now, I'm not saying you should hide under your duvet until the eclipse passes (although, no judgment if that's your vibe). But all I'm saying is that it's a good time to ground yourself, maybe meditate a bit, and check in with your inner wisdom. And hey, don't forget to peek at your birth chart to see how the eclipse might be vibing with you personally. I love to use Astroseek, to view my full birth chart.



Keep shining, keep aligning with your truth, and remember: everything is always in alignment with your highest good 🌌✨


Until next time, stay rooted and continue to radiate your light.

Xo,

Ki
