The Solar Eclipse in Aries 2023 arrives in the middle of the night on April 20th at 12:13 AM ET. This promises to bring a dramatic shift in the world or your life. Here’s why: the eclipse happens at 29º Aries, a critical degree, and kicks off the Aries-Libra eclipse cycle. It’s also the first eclipse with Pluto in Aquarius – which is at 0º, another critical degree! Shit is about to “get real.”
Eclipses are wild and unpredictable. They bring shake-ups and wake-ups. If something or someone needs to go, it will – with a bang. In fiery Aries, you can expect showdowns in your orbit or on the world’s stage. Something has to give, and a bridge or two may end up torched beyond recognition. This is not negative – it’s liberating. For trailblazer types, this is the moment you’ve been waiting for. A revolution is on the way, and the future is ready to be written in the stars!
Because Aries is a fire sign, you may feel a sense of urgency (aka being hot under the collar). A risk may need to be taken – and it cannot wait. But fear not – this will be in your best interest. After all, nothing happens in the comfort zone. This New Moon Solar Eclipse wants you to take the leap when the opportunity arises.
The shadow side of Aries energy is selfishness. If you’ve been on a “me first” ride for some time, you may find others have something to say about it. Don’t tune that out. Instead, use it as valuable feedback to help you create better relationships. The Aries/Libra axis is all about finding the balance between partnership and independence. This eclipse is the first leg in that journey, which will continue next year. If you consider how others might feel, that empathy will pay off in healthier, better relating. (Of course, if someone is acting like a narcissist in your world, it may be time to burn that bridge to the ground once and for all.)
Only minutes after the eclipse occurs, the Moon slides into Taurus, which feels like a firework coming down to Earth with a thud. A few hours later, Taurus season begins when the Sun saunters into the sign of the Bull, and the energy feels more grounded and stable. Despite this, the effects of the Solar Eclipse in Aries are still being unveiled for a few days, so it’s best not to get too comfy.
It’s important to keep your schedule as light as possible this week. You’ll want to see how this energy settles for yourself…and the rest of the world. It’s best not to push things. Instead, allow situations to unfold. You might be surprised or delighted to see what the Universe has to say about certain people or situations.
