Since the beginning of time, the Sun has been known as the source of all Life. The Sun spiritually symbolizes life, energy, rebirth, positivity, clarity, confidence, enlightenment, wisdom, healing, & the Divine. It provides us with light, warmth, & guidance every day … & although this natural force is something we do not control, & at times is not always visible, we can rest easy knowing it is always there, illuminating the world around us.
Apart from sustaining all life on Earth - the Sun can benefit us in many ways spiritually. The Sun has many healing properties of its own that can support us on our spiritual path, just like the Moon. We rely heavily on Lunar energy to give us guidance, yet many don’t know that Sun Magic is just as powerful! This magic allows us to create, manifest, heal, control, & more, by using the energy of the sacred Sun.
When working with the Sun’s energy, it is best that we pay attention to its phases throughout the day …
Sun Rise: The energy given at Sun Rise encourages new beginnings, embracing change, sense of clarity or cleansing, rejuvenates hope, & ignites love & energy within.
Morning Sun: The embracing energy of the Morning Sun is strong & lively. It inspires growth, positivity, courage, warmth, & harmony. It is also believed this is the best time to manifest abundance & to work with plants.
Midday Sun: This Sun phase hits around noon, focusing primarily on our mental being. This is when we want to take a moment to do a quick health check to see how we are feeling. Take a few moments if you need to mentally rebalance, & remember to nourish & hydrate your body in order to stay energized physically. This is also a great time to charge your crystals or other spiritual tools, under a Sun bath.
Afternoon Sun: The energy at this time of day revolves around receptiveness. Be open to new ideas & change, or simply be willing to listen. This is the ideal time to take care of any professional business or communication. Clarity is at its finest at this phase.
Sunset: As the Sun departs, we can use this tranquil energy to wind down. Now is when we would want to release stress & alleviate any confusion or negativity we may have lingering. Use the magic of the Sunset to find a harmonious balance within yourself, knowing that even if you had a bad day, the Sun will always rise again tomorrow.
