The energies of solar flares and sun storms can be very effective when harnessed for magickal use. But what are they, and how do they affect us?
We seldom think of weather conditions as causing problems anywhere other than here on Earth. Inf act, we seldom even consider that there is any sort of weather anywhere else. But that’s just no so. Outer space has its own sort of weather, too, and Sun storms can definitely wreak havoc with it.
Sun storms are geomagnetic and caused by a series of eruptions and explosions on the Sun’s surface. These explosions emit lots of tiny particles that fly into space at speeds in excess of a thousand miles per hour, and set course for Earth’s atmosphere. And since they’re both radioactive and magnetized, they wreak havoc here, too, when they arrive.
So, what kinds of problems do they cause? Because they’re highly magnetized, they can screw up compass readings and interfere with global positioning systems. The latter, of course, is a real problem since most air traffic controllers use the GPS to track airplanes on radar.
They also have the ability to knock out power systems and cause blackouts, push satellites out of orbit, and interrupt radio transmissions.
And if that weren’t enough, this solar fallout also brings a hefty dose of radiation with its arrival; in fact, flying on a day when Sun storms are in progress often brings travelers ten times the radiation of a normal chest x-ray.
Be that as it may, though, the energies of these aggravating little storms can be very effective when harnessed for magickal use.
Because of the magnetized particles involved, they’re absolutely unsurpassed in power when it comes to attraction magick. In fact, nearly any magick worked during these periods comes to fruition quickly, provided that the desired result is visualized as being drawn to you like nails to a magnet.
Efforts to alleviate anger, stress, anxiety, and confusion ~ or anything else you’d like to eradicate from your life ~ also work well now. The trick is to visualize the problem breaking up into particles that fly away and dissolve into nothingness.
The good news is that Sun storms are predictable ~ but only by three or four days in advance. Still, that allows plenty of time for for practitioners to be ready to brag their power and use it to full advantage.

- LIGHTNING STORMS:
Lightning storms are periods of intense energy. All spells cast during storms will be empowered by them, and may prove to be more effective. Protection rituals are ideal at these times.
Rainstorms are fine for purification, love, compassion, friendship, beauty rituals, and releasing guilt and jealousy.

Heavy winds empower rites designed to break addictions, assist study, and travel spells.
- SEARING HOT DAY:
A searing hot day is an excellent time to charge rites of protection, courage, and energy.
- SOLAR and LUNAR ECLIPSES:
Eclipses (both solar and lunar) are dramatic moments both for their observers as well as for magicians. In the past, magicians were urged not to perform magic during eclipses. Today, many natural magicians use the suggestive power of an eclipse to fuel spells involving banishment, including the destruction of disease.
Day begins as light stretches out from the eastern horizon. This is an excellent time to perform rituals involving purification, business success, study, employment, breaking addictions of all kinds, travel, releasing guilt and jealousy, healing diseases, and the conscious mind.
The sun shines far above at full strength. This is fine for all sunrise ritual purposes, as well as those that involve magical energy, physical energy and strength, protection, money and courage.
The sun slips below the western horizon, signaling the time for breaking addictions, weight-loss, banishing misery and pain, transforming anguish and negative habits.
The sun is out of sight. This is the drowsy time for beauty, dreams, psychic dreams, psychic awareness, spirituality, sleep, sex, purification, love, friendships, peace, releasing stress, healing wounds.

- FULL MOON:
All positive magical spells are performed beneath the potent glow of the Full Moon, including protection, love, healing, purification, psychic awareness, money and travel.
- WANING MOON:
From the full moon to the new moon is a time when the Moon is waning, and darkening. This is the time for banishment of habits, addictions, disease and negative thoughts. jealousy, guilt, and hurts are released under the waning Moon. The old is swept away to make room for the new.
- NEW MOON:
The New Moon is a time when the Moon is dark. Also known as the Dark Moon, it is as powerful in its own way as the Full Moon. It is a time for taking stock. It is a phase of hibernation, retreat, and contemplation. The dark moon is a time for dealing with attackers, for exploring our darkest recesses and understanding our angers and passions. Also bringing justice to bear.
This does not mean that spells must only be cast during those specific times. These are simply guidelines for optimal times, a spell can be cast whenever it is needed.
