New Moon Solar Eclipse in Aries = New Horizons 🌝🐏🌚

April 7-13, 2024

This is the big week of the Solar Eclipse in Aries! Do we go out to watch it? Do we run and hide? That is up to you, but what comes from such an eclipse as this will be nothing short of powerful change for the fortification of your will to thrive. The power that lies in eclipses has played out through millennia and is not to be taken lightly. But it is also not something we need to fear or suffer anxiety over. What we need is the change that will come, whether we know it or not. There is actually a whole lot to be excited about, because new vistas and horizons are up around the bend, and as long as our ride holds out for us, we will live to see the majestic beauty that awaits.

While we anticipate tomorrow’s Solar Eclipse in Aries, we should naturally expect some confusion and apprehension in certain areas of our life. If we are feeling any anxiety or confusion about the magnitude of the eclipse and how impactful it could be on our lives, we should take a step back to understand that eclipses happen 4-6 times per year, so this is not our first eclipse rodeo. In other words, we should take a deep breath, breathe through our anxiety, and remind ourselves that we can handle whatever comes our way with grace.

 

That said, if we are going to feel any apprehension, it is likely going to be early this morning, so waking up to some meditation, yoga, a walk, or any form of quiet contemplation and introspection would be ideal. After the mists drift away, we should find some grounding and clarity through our natural intuition, perhaps even some excitement surrounding the ways in which we intend to evolve through this experience. There is enormous potential for powerful personal growth and revitalization, so keeping that in the forefront of our consciousness can help alleviate any previous doubts or fears. They simply distract from what is most important.

 

Speaking of what is most important, this is where we should be focusing our train of thoughts. What are we hoping to birth anew? What are we worried about within that process? If we envision ourselves standing strong in the face of those fears, we will be able to make it through that door into an emergent future of horizons we had never imagined possible for us before. Just remember that love is the answer and we're all as bold as love.

Moon conjunct its North Node in Aries

Before today’s formidable Solar Eclipse occurs, Moon meets its own North Node, signaling a timely call for auspicious direction. If we heed the resonant chords strumming deep within us, we will emerge through this experience more aligned and prepared for what lies ahead than if we ignore what those winds have to say. Somewhere within us there is a river of tranquility waiting to be discovered, we just have to quiet the inner chatter to find it.

 

What is so formidable about this eclipse is what comes of the perfect conjunction between Sun, Moon, and Chiron all at 19°24’ Aries. This reaches deep down into the hidden chambers of our unique identity and traumas. There are painful memories covered in dust there that have been forgotten, misunderstood, and are in desperate need of resurfacing for the sake of truth, acceptance, and fortitude. While we may never fully heal those wounds, we can learn to courageously make peace with them and accept that they are an integral part of our unique identity and our emotional and psychic constitution. When we replay those experiences over again in our minds, we will have to relive the pain again to some degree, but if we softly walk our way through them, we are likely to find priceless wisdom along the way.

 

Our emotional maturity is cultivated during our evolution through life. Over the years, we learn to forgive, accept, yield, and practice compassion toward not just others, but also ourselves. Because we develop these benevolent traits throughout our lives, when we revisit our painful experiences, we get to witness them through different lenses and a warmer, kinder, and more forgiving heart.

 

Having this broader and more compassionate understanding of what we went through and how it has shaped our lives allows us to better understand that everyone has gone through pain and suffering in their lives to some degree. This helps foster empathy for others, and thus helps us mature emotionally. Through all of this, we gain acceptance and confidence, strengthening and fortifying our determination and ambition to flourish in the face of oppression, intimidation, and especially our own inhibition. Something is indeed disintegrating and breaking down into compost that will provide the nutrients necessary to emerge stronger, braver, and more willing to take life by the horns of the ram to pursue our dreams and bliss with the entirety of our spirit.

Eclipses can induce fatigue and exhaustion, so if we can find some time to rest today that would be a healthy approach to processing the intensity of what yesterday invoked deep within. With so much Pisces and Aries influence happening right now, it is nice to find some stable grounding in today’s Taurus Moon. That stability, however, will very likely contain within it a good deal of tension and resistance to the changes summoned during the eclipse.

 

We should be taking deep breaths to work through this transitional phase, allowing ourselves to embody what we have been called upon to endure and master moving forward. It may seem like there is a lot at stake, and there very well may be, but we need to remember to trust the will of our spirit within to comfort us and guide us through the overwhelming needs we are being asked to meet. Our resistance to unfurl our sails could set us adrift and threaten to run our ship aground, so we must muster the courage to rig our ship in order to be completely prepared for the exciting and illuminating voyage ahead.

The stubborn tendencies we found ourselves holding onto yesterday continue to play out through a series of recognitions today. These could be recognitions of conceivable opportunities we should be diligently heeding and not resisting. We are deeply reflecting upon our resources, our values, and our sense of material security in life. Do we have all we need? Can we survive with less in order to pursue our passions more authentically and whole-heartedly? What is enlightening about the visions of our future, and how can we build such a future to embrace more frequent and sustaining enlightenment?

 

We must remember that eclipses bring changes, even if we cannot seem to recognize what could possibly be changing. There are life forces at work all around and within us, sparking curiosity, inspiration, and sudden excitement to break out of the shell we have been living under for however long in order to see the world in which we live through not just new eyes, but through all of our senses. We can find ourselves wanting new scents, music, vistas, affection, and tastes that stimulate and invigorate a completely new perspective on the world in which we live.

While we sat or walked pondering the enlightened visions of our future yesterday, our spirits were conjuring the conceivability of them so that our hearts could decide what tack we will take. This process continues through today by way of sharing our thoughts with others, listening to the dreams they have, and gathering all the information necessary to help facilitate the manifestation of our dreams. 

 

These are powerful medleys of transits affecting not just our ideas and actions, but also instilling in each of us a newfound sense of love and joy for what is possible. Sure there is myriad suffering, carnage, and corruption rampant around the world, but what can we do to counter that pain? How can we affect change to make the world more manageable, hopeful, loving, kind, and sustainable? These are the horns of the dilemma. We must work diligently to sustain optimism and hope, and realigning our values to fit this paradigm is a crucial part of that road ahead.

After all these hopeful efforts toward positive change and growth, we could find ourselves slipping into an old familiar pessimism today. The battle rages on and we can feel overwhelmed and at a loss for how to make the world a better place. Staring us down from the mountaintop is a reality we may have not been anticipating. A reality that reminds us that not all things are possible. That we can be suckers for blissful ideals and far-fetched pipe dreams. This is all necessary for us to experience because it teaches us where the boundaries are between possible and impossible. 

 

Someone might tell us we can never make our dreams come true. They might scoff at our hopes, knock us down five or six rungs on the ladder, blatantly scathe our optimism with shame and humiliation. But these are all the tactics that pessimists and so-called realists use to make themselves feel better. If we all fall into that fathomless pit of despair, we will never know what may have been had we held fast to our conviction that where there is a will there is a way. We all suffer difficult days, and while this may be one of them, we must remember that good days always lie ahead. 

 

If we remain hopeful and do not get sucked into despair today, we can find ourselves excited about the willful adventure we have committed ourselves to. The fortification of our will can return today with giddy exuberance to make a new mark on the world; to imbue our little neck of the woods with joy, fun, and laughter. Talk to friends! Talk to strangers! Find connection and resonance through communication and socialization!

Moon in Gemini square Neptune in Pisces

Moon ingresses Cancer

 

The resistance, the pessimism, and the despair can tangle us up in blue confusion about what we are really doing here and why. The mind can run away with thoughts about all of these things, leaving us feeling hopeless and helpless. But what if we took a slew of steps back to view our journey from afar, like an eagle gazing upon us all from on high? We would see the ups and downs that are strewn across our days and hours and minutes. We would see the gradual ascent of how far we have come through the muck and mire of our past. 

 

As we grapple with our mindset surrounding this struggle today, let’s soak in the vast ocean of the timeless Tao. All that is is imbued with love. We hide from it behind our egos and attachments. But what of our moments of clarity and sparks of ingenuity? How do we return back to honoring and respecting how valuable those moments are and what they teach us? 

 

Today’s tense confusion may be difficult to avoid, but there is latent potential for waves of inspiration to wash over us, cleansing our stifled perspective and revitalizing our imagination to strive for what is possible. Through all of these challenging days we endure, we must know that we are not alone. So many people feel the way we do, suffer the way we do, and hope for a better world the way we do. Perhaps we need to reach out to friends, family, and strangers more often to remind ourselves that this is true. 

 

 



This week is chock full of intense swings and bridges that can carry us over the troubled waters of our pain and suffering. While we trudge on through these bogs of memories and experiences, holding onto each other and the dreams we still believe is paramount to arriving at those greener pastures and pristine mountain lakes. May we always remember to be there for those we love, trust in our spirit to see us through, and practice compassion as much as possible.
