With the solar eclipse coming up, we look at eclipse folklore and magic, then expand into the heavens to discuss other solar and stellar lore and enchantments.

Download: Episode 114 – Of Suns, Stars, and Magic
We mention that we’re not talking much about lunar magic, since we’ve covered that in both Episode 75 – Moon Magic and Episode 97 – A Lunar Wheel of the Year. You may also hear some of the lore associated with the sun and stars in Episode 5 – Signs and Omens and Episode 7 – Weather Magic and Lore. You might also be interested in our article on Comets as well.
We mention several books that might be of interest to our listeners who like to look up into the sky, whether day or night:
- Stellar Magic, by Payam Nabarz
- Planets for Pagans, by Renna Shesso
- The Lost Art of Reading Nature’s Signs, by Tristan Gooley
And Cory highly recommends Bri Saussy’s Star Magic course, which he’s taken before and loved!

One thought on “Episode 114 – Of Suns, Stars, and Magic”
Was just listening to the podcast, and thought I might add that another possibility for the Star of Bethlehem is that it may have been an astrological portent of a royal birth based on the placement of the planet Jupiter, possibly in conjunction with Saturn, in relation to the sun and the constellations.
