SOLAR ECLIPSE SOUR
ENERGIES: purification, protection, grounding, spirituality
MOON(S): solar eclipse, in Leo
Solar eclipses can often act as doorways to new beginnings, signifying powerful change in one’s life. With elements drawing on the moon and the sun, and a red wine float covering an otherwise bright color just like the moon covering the sun, this 1870 Sour variation is symbolic of the solar eclipse both in visual representation and ingredient alignment. Mix egg white to symbolize rebirth, cinnamon for vibration raising, and blueberry for psychic protection, and you have a concoction to help ground and protect your energy during this celestial event.
