The eclipse: From ancient paganism to American history, it's been a thing

Nothing reminds us that we are on a celestial island surrounded by the abyss like watching our planet’s energy source turn into a gaping black hole. But don’t take my word for it. From occult and pagan lore to American history and yes, Hollywood, solar eclipses have been harbingers of doom, transformation, and revolution since time immemorial. And can’t you just … feel it?

Pagan Path say that since solar eclipses, “can only occur during the day, on a new moon,” it’s a great time to take advantage of that unique blend of energy toward “planting new seeds and ideas.” Even NASA admits that, while it may not cause any evident physical effects in people, there’s something here: The eclipse even has our no-nonsense nerds sounding like vague, prophetic philosophers. Much like our future, outer space is hella femaleImage: GETTY IMAGESBut NASA’s right about one thing: Belief shapes reality. Wars waged in the name of religion have …read more
