On April 4, 03:37 PM —

On April 8, 2:20 PM EST, we experience the first Solar Eclipse of 2024, a potent cosmic event catalyzing a collective initiation and bringing powerful opportunities for a radical renewal of our reality. After a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Libra, the lunar cycle begins with a New Moon in the opposite sign of Aries, coinciding with a Total Solar Eclipse and exactly conjunct with Chiron. The Sun and the Moon meet at 19º23’ of the sign of the Ram, also in proximity to the Lunar North Node at 15º of Aries and to retrograde Mercury at 24º of Aries.

This event is a powerful collective turning point and will be strongly felt by everyone. However, the individuals born with natal planets or angles around the 19º of Cardinal signs will be impacted in more significant and personal ways by the New Moon Total Solar Eclipse in Aries. They are more likely to experience life-altering changes, breakthroughs, and wake-up calls: they are embarking on a new chapter of their healing journey and will have chances to transform their lives in radical ways.

We invite you to watch our hour long video on our YouTube channel together with Nina where she walks us through the powerful energies of this Solar Eclipse in Aries.

Solar Eclipses: Potent Omens of Drastic Change


Since the beginning of times, Solar Eclipses have been equally feared and revered by the ancients, who soon correlated these events with times of particularly drastic and extreme change. Solar Eclipses have been always seen as powerful omens, and Total Solar Eclipses particularly so. The fact that the light of the Sun, which makes life on Earth possible, is prevented from reaching us was considered an especially dramatic occurrence that, in the past, would generate widespread fear.

We now know that this phenomenon is only temporary, however, being forced to experience darkness for a few hours remains a powerful cosmic invitation to turn within, bring our attention to what is lingering in the shadows, and confront something we usually don’t see or don’t want to see. As the Sun gets eclipsed, we have an opportunity to both face our shadows and connect with our inner light.


Astronomical and Astrological Significance of Solar Eclipses


Astronomically, Solar Eclipses happen when the Moon, the Earth, and the Sun align in a specific way, which generates an optical illusion that the Sun and Moon are the same size. The Moon passes between the Earth and the Sun and temporarily prevents sunlight from reaching us. This Total Solar Eclipse is going to be visible from most of Canada and the USA, Mexico, Central America, and some areas of Western Europe. The exact duration of the event is dependent on our location. Generally speaking, the entire phenomenon is going to unfold for several hours, however, the Sun is going to be totally covered by the Moon for only four minutes at the Eclipse’s maximum point. 

From an Astrological standpoint, Solar Eclipses are considered to be supercharged, more intense New Moons that mark potent new beginnings and inaugurate a brand new chapter of our lives. Solar Eclipses bring us an invitation to let go of the known and the familiar and allow our lives to be revolutionized from the inside out. They invite us on a wild ride and remind us to enjoy the journey, even if we have no idea of what is happening or where we are going.

We wrote an e-book to help you dive into the meaning of the New Moon Total Solar Eclipse in Aries conjunct Chiron in each House of the natal chart. You can find where it falls in your birth chart and see what themes will emerge for you. Tap on the image below to download this free e-book.

New Moon Total Solar Eclipse in Aries: Collective Initiation


A New Moon Total Solar Eclipse in Aries, the first sign of the Zodiac wheel, is always an incredibly potent event. The energy of renewal is even more emphasized, as this is the first New Moon of the Astrological year, and Aries as an archetype is associated with initiation, risk-taking, rebirth, and new beginnings. 

A Cardinal, Yang, and Fire sign, Aries is all about starting fresh, exploring new directions, and challenging ourselves by trying something completely unfamiliar and learning from a process of trial and error. Through the sign of the Ram, we tap into our inner fire, embody our inner warrior, and work on developing a conscious relationship with our anger. We connect with our capacity to be the leaders of our lives, to take paths that no one ever walked before, to go toward the direction that instinctively calls us.

This Total Solar Eclipse in Aries marks the start of a brand new cycle of personal and collective evolution, bringing an energy of initiation that invites transformation, awakening, and redemption.


Solar Eclipse Conjunct the North Node: Embracing the Unknown


Solar Eclipses occur when the luminaries meet in proximity to the Nodal Axis, the intersection of the Moon’s orbit with the Ecliptic, the apparent path of the Sun from our perspective on Earth. The Nodal Axis consists of the North and South Nodes of the Moon, two opposite points in space associated with destiny, karma, and Soul evolution.

This Solar Eclipse is activating the Lunar North Node, also known as Rahu in Vedic Astrology. While the South Node or Ketu illustrates collective tendencies and trends, the North Node represents the opposite of what feels familiar, easy, and natural at this time of history. The North Node marks our collective evolutionary direction, and the sign where the North Node is transiting, currently Aries, represents an energy we are called to embody, embrace, and welcome in order to grow, evolve, and move away from stuckness and inertia.

A New Moon Solar Eclipse conjunct with the North Node of the Moon motivates us to move toward the unknown and explore unfamiliar ways of being. The current Solar Eclipse in Aries represents a clear invitation for us to take unbeaten paths, challenge ourselves, and do something we have never done before.

New Moon Total Solar Eclipse in Aries conjunct Chiron: Healing and Redemption


The exact conjunction between the Sun, the Moon, and Chiron represents a very potent alignment that colors the energy of this Eclipse. Chiron is a celestial body associated with the archetypes of the Wounded Healer, the Maverick, and the Teacher. In Astrology, Chiron is connected to both our wounds and a kind of pain that seems unsolvable and our healing journey. In particular, Chiron resonates with themes surrounding rejection, vulnerability, isolation, and not fitting in. 

During his journey through Aries, Chiron has been bringing up wounds surrounding the feeling of not having the right to exist, disconnection from instinct and our primal nature, fear of initiating and taking action, painful experiences connected to unconscious or abusive expressions of masculine energy, trauma associated with war, and challenges expressing and relating to anger and aggression healthily.

A Total Solar Eclipse in Aries conjunct Chiron offers unique opportunities for a turning point in our healing journey and comes with a strong energy of redemption. These planetary alignments underline the value of self-forgiveness and self-acceptance as well as the necessity of feeling the pain we have been avoiding in order to be able to create a different reality. This event emphasizes the need to prioritize our healing process, reminding us that becoming aware of what is asking to be healed, witnessed, and felt is the only way to move on without compulsively repeating the past. 


The Mars-Saturn conjunction in Pisces


Mars is the planetary ruler of Aries and his condition gives us more information about the energy of this New Moon Total Solar Eclipse in the sign. Mars is currently in Pisces and approaching a conjunction with Saturn, which is going exact on April 10.

Mars and Saturn are in the closing phase of their existing cycle, which started with the previous Mars-Saturn conjunction in Aquarius on April 5, 2022. Around this time, something that began unfolding during those days is coming to an end: it can be interesting to contemplate what was going on in our life back then and how we have changed since.

The current Mars-Saturn conjunction in Pisces is bringing our attention to fears and insecurities that may prevent us from being confident in asserting ourselves, setting boundaries, beginning new endeavors, and taking initiative. This configuration offers us opportunities to address feelings of guilt and shame, possibly linked to religious conditioning, that may emerge when we try to take action on our desires, trust our instincts, or express our sexuality. Another theme that may emerge strongly these days is the necessity to be clearly aware of what we can and cannot control, learn to surrender with grace to Life’s timing, and improve our resilience.

New Moon Total Solar Eclipse in Aries: Rainbow after the Storm


The New Moon Total Solar Eclipse in Aries catalyzes potent personal and collective awakenings. The activation of retrograde Mercury, also conjunct with the Eclipse, points at the need for a radical shift in our mindset, perceptions, and ways of thinking and inspires us to explore new ways of communicating and sharing with others what is going on in our minds, hearts, and inner world.

Sometimes, the events in the days leading up to an Eclipse can be more intense than the day of the Eclipse itself: a brand new cycle of growth is starting, and more energy is now available to us. During the lunar month that is being initiated by the New Moon Total Solar Eclipse in Aries we will be reminded that there is a rainbow after every storm: after experiencing endings, chaos, and disruptions, possibilities for redemption, resolution, and evolution will unfold. At times, allowing everything to break down is necessary to experience a breakthrough, as much as going through a dark night of the Soul can be the necessary catalyst for a significant shift in consciousness.
