Updated: Mar 26

Solar Eclipse

As the celestial dance unfolds, a potent cosmic event graces the skies: a New Moon Solar Eclipse in the bold and dynamic sign of Aries. Occurring when the Moon passes between the Earth and the Sun, obscuring the Sun's light, this eclipse heralds a profound period of transformation and renewal. In the fiery realm of Aries, the energy is electric, igniting our passions, fueling our ambitions, and inspiring us to embark on courageous new journeys.  What will you eclipse out of your life that will enable you to take the journey? Only those within about 115 miles of the path of the eclipse, which begins over Texas, will see it as a total eclipse, everyone else in the viewing path, will experience this as a partial solar eclipse.


In the spirit of embracing these cosmic energies and harnessing their transformative power, I invite you to join me for a personalized astrology session during this potent time. Together, we will explore the unique influences of the New Moon Solar Eclipse on your birth chart and uncover the opportunities it presents for growth, healing, and evolution.  Find my reading special here.


Aries: The Pioneer's Call to Action

Aries, the first sign of the zodiac, embodies the spirit of the pioneer, the warrior, and the trailblazer. Ruled by Mars, the planet of action and vitality, Aries is fearless, assertive, and fiercely independent. With the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Aries, we are invited to embrace the warrior within, to tap into our inner strength, and to boldly pursue our dreams with unwavering determination. The Sun and Moon join together in the sign of Aries to provide you with an opportunity to reset your personal goals, to redefine who you are, to remove blocks to your personal growth, or have them removed for you.


Chiron:  Profound implications for healing, growth and personal transformation.

Chiron was a mythical character, a Centaur.  Half man, half horse.  Half is father, half his mother.  He was also a trainer of the God’s.  He suffered a wound that was so painful, because of an arrow that hit him by mistake.  He was immortal and could not heal the wound, and also could not die.  He eventually made a sacrifice, gave up his immortality, to help someone else heal.  That is the lesson of Chiron.  Use your pain to help others heal, and you will heal yourself. 


An eclipse is a rare event, making this one even more rare is the exact conjunction between the Sun, Moon and Chiron.  This is creating a stellium of planets in the sign of Aries, which is amplifying the energy of the eclipse even more.  With any pain you are experiencing there is the potential for deep emotional healing.  You may feel much more self-aware, and have increased self-compassion.  The Eclipse may even remove the blocks that keep you from healing the important relationships in your life, including the one you have with yourself.  This is a chance for you like Chiron, to integrate your woundedness, to gain the wisdom you need to heal, and if you are a healer, you may be called upon to help others at this time.


Nodes:  Fate and destiny are activated

The Nodes of the Moon represent points where the Moon's orbit intersects with the ecliptic, and they hold significant karmic and evolutionary significance in astrology.  The North Node in Aries brings fated events that cause us to further explore our self-identity.  The South Node the karma we came into this lifetime with in the sign of Libra, may cause us to release a relationship that is no longer part of our future.  Wherever there is imbalance in your current relationships, it needs to be corrected.  During this eclipse you may see just how to right the scales of Justice, which are the symbol of the sign of Libra.


Mars:  Embrace your courage, live life fearlessly.

The planetary ruler of this eclipse energy is Mars.  At the time of the eclipse it will be transiting through the sign of Pisces, where it is not strong, and also be conjunct with the planet Saturn.  This brings an element of control, restriction, and karmic lessons to learn.  If Mars is the gas, then Saturn is the brakes, and you will find if you try to take off too quickly, Saturn will slow you down.  Saturn in Pisces has been teaching us for the past year about having good boundaries.  Mars is showing you how to take the necessary steps to keep those boundaries in place.  If you are not holding good boundaries, or others constantly push past them, that will be corrected at this time. Because of the reckless pace of Mars energy it is always good to be aware of the element the planet is in, and to practice more care as you do things that activate this energy. During the eclipse season that means you should be careful near water.


Mercury Retrograde:  A time for Reflection and Review

In mid-March Mercury first traveled across the eclipse point, at that time you may have gotten a preview of the work you were expected to complete.  Right around the Spring Equinox was when Mercury passed over the eclipse point.  It will be sitting at 24 degrees of Aries, and still in retrograde, at the time of the Solar Eclipse.  The retrograde means, this eclipse event is unusual.  It will be activated twice more, before the work is fully done, so no need to rush through this.  Mercury was also retrograde during the 2005 eclipse, but much further away.  This impact will be more apparent.  You could be reviewing the path you are currently on, considering your way of thinking, learning how to think for yourself.  There is a significant level of energy focused around your individual goals, and letting go of relationships and situations that are not meeting your goals.  Mercury retrograde always comes with challenges to electronics, travel, and communication devices.  Despite the potential challenges, Mercury retrograde in Aries offers valuable opportunities for self-reflection and personal growth. Use this time to explore your inner motivations, clarify your desires, and identify areas for personal development. Embrace the introspective energy of the retrograde period to gain insights into your true self and aspirations.


As mentioned previously, 2005 was the last time we had this set of eclipses.  The Nodes take about 18.5 years to move around the Sun.  It can be beneficial to review what happened in your life during this last eclipse.  While the energy is not exactly the same, the themes for your life may be repeating in a notable way.  Were you working on being more independent back then?  Were you getting out of a relationship that was not healthy for you?  Maybe you moved, changed jobs, or started focusing on your physical health. Maybe you didn't and instead of being stuck in the same type of cycle for the next 19 years, you will choose differently.
