Gallery: Southern Illinois Pagans celebrate eclipse

By Athena Chrysanthou

Georgia De-La-Garza, of Cherokee, raises her hands into the sky Monday, Aug. 21, 2017, just after the solar eclipse at Dancing Willow Farm in Makanda. “To me it means transformation,” De-La-Garza said. “Both of my children moved out so I am transforming into a single person again.” De-La-Garza said she has been mentally preparing for the eclipse for over a year. “I think everyone had their own personal experience and I will continue to seek myself inward,” De-La-Garza added. “I hope everyone takes these moments that are given to us, hold them close and do a sort of reflection.” (Athena Chrysanthou | @Chrysant1Athena)
