In this week’s Cosmic Cauldron episode, host Jaime Amanda and I discuss the topic of Solar Magic. While “Moon Magic” may be the more popular topic, the sun is equally as important and there is a myriad of ways that you can incorporate this into your own practice. In the episode, we discuss the phases of the sun, as well as several of the correspondences, and activities that you can do to honor the sun in your practice.
This blog will sum up some of the topics we covered in the episode, just in case you didn’t have a pen & paper (read: notes app) on hand while you were listening. Didn’t catch the episode? You can tune in on Anchor, Apple, and Spotify!
Did you know that the sun also has phases? Yes, just like the moon. However, unlike the moon, these occur throughout the day versus the span of 28 days. But, much like the moon, each phase has its own correspondences. So, if you’re looking to utilize the sun’s energy in your spell work, you can time the energy intentionally to connect with these themes throughout the day.
Sunrise: Beginnings, Renewal, Change
Morning: Growth, Strength, Happiness
Afternoon: Energy, Wisdom, Charging
Sunset: Releasing, Letting Go
And while the phases of the sun have their own correspondences, the sun itself has several attributes that you can consider when working with the timing of your spells. This can also be used directly when creating something that utilizes the sun’s energy such as solar water or sun tea.
If you work with deities in your practice and feel the pull to incorporate a Sun deity, there are several different deities to consider. The list below is a few of the sun deities from different cultures but this isn’t an exhaustive list! There are several others that you could research if you feel called to do so.
Ra: Egyptian Sun God
Sol: Norse Sun Goddess
Helios: Greek Sun God
Surya: Hindu Sun God
Inti: Incan Sun God
Lugh: Sun God of Celtics
Mithra: Persian Sun God
