Happy Solar Eclipse, beautiful spirit! 💜

The winds of change have ushered in a VERY significant solar eclipse in 29 degrees of Aries this week. This is our first eclipse of 2023 and our second Aries New Moon this spring! We entered this transformational portal on April 19th at 9:13 PM PT (12:13 AM ET on April 20th). This impactful celestial event brings us a boost of action-oriented energy, massive metamorphosis and a vast array of opportunities in our lives!

The Arian themes include assertiveness, action, decisiveness, enthusiasm, leadership, courage, initiation, eagerness, and enterprise. Have you come up with an amazing inspired idea and are waiting for the perfect time to get it out into the world? Trying to summon the courage to become the leader of your own life? There is no better time than a fiery Aries New Moon! You can begin by taking just ONE small step towards bringing those ideas and plans into reality.

Solar eclipses are VERY powerful events, bringing about MAJOR transformation in our lives. This is a monumental consciousness upgrade! This is a sacred opportunity to honor what needs to be put to rest in your life and create new beginnings that will reinvigorate your life. The shifts and changes from a solar eclipse continue for as long as 6 months to a year afterwards. The house of your birth chart where the eclipse takes place will give you more info about what area of your life it is affecting specifically.

Pluto is making a square to this solar eclipse, which can bring to our awareness issues to do with power, transformation and endings. Whatever comes up for you now is likely to be incredibly significant as you move forward over the next couple of years, so be sure to take special notice of what this is for you! Pluto brings about enduring change to whatever areas it is impacting in your astrological chart.

The time is NOW to look at the energy and the vision that you would like to create for the rest of 2023, and even going into 2024. Are you happy with where you find yourself now-or is there some deeper transformational work to be done? It’s time to make new conscious decisions and to envision what you REALLY want, releasing the things that are no longer in alignment with your heart and inner truth. The decisions you make and the actions you commit to now will set the stage for the next 6-12 months, so make sure you are clear on what you want and are consciously moving towards it!

Eclipses run in 19 year cycles. The last time we had a solar eclipse in 29 degrees of Aries was in April of 2004. To get an idea of which area of your life will be most affected by this eclipse, think back to what was going on in your life around that time. You will find similar themes being activated for you now also. This won’t necessarily show up exactly the same way this time, but it will most likely strongly resonate with the events that were taking place for you then.

Mercury entered its retrograde period in Taurus in the early morning of April 21st and will remain there through May 14th. The retrograde time asks us to take time to care for ourselves…….to slow down, breathe and take care of body, mind and spirit. Take this time to redo, revise, reorganize, reconnect, reflect and revisit wherever needed. It’s a great time to “clean out the closets” and revamp both your inner and outer environments.

It’s a GREAT time to review your intentions that you are creating during this New Moon cycle, pay attention to anything that comes up for revision with those intentions, then wait until after the Taurus New Moon on May 19th to implement major action if at all possible.

This eclipse is an especially potent time to set your intentions and plant the seeds for your highest desires to manifest later on in the moon cycle. When setting intentions after a solar eclipse, be sure to wait until at least 48 hours AFTER the eclipse has become exact. This is different then setting intentions during a regular New Moon period. It is important to also avoid any Moon Void of Course times when doing so.

Questions to reflect or journal upon for the Aries solar eclipse cycle:

🔥Which one action can I take right now that will accelerate the evolution of my highest goals and dreams for the next 6-12 months?
🔥What do I need to release that is no longer in alignment with my Higher Self?
🔥What are the most impactful changes I can make that best align with who I truly desire to become now?

Remember that you are a powerful creator! Take this opportunity to make changes for the better, to take risks and create a life that you love.

NOW is the time!

There is abundant energy flowing from all of these powerful celestial events right now. Be sure to spend as much time as needed to rest and recharge! Give yourself the love that you need-stop waiting for someone else to give it to you.

I would love to hear about how you are experiencing this fresh and fiery eclipse energy! If guided, feel free to leave a comment about what is coming to your awareness at this time 💜
