When is the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Aries?

The New Moon Solar Eclipse in Aries rises on April 9th, 2024 in the early hours of the morning, but you should start to feel its energy in the days leading up to it.

This will signal the end of Eclipse Season but we’re not fully out of the woods as Mercury Retrograde has just kicked off.

What is an eclipse?

Eclipses are wild cosmic events that activate the lunar nodes. Since the south and north nodes, often referred to as the Nodes of Fate, impact our karmic pathway (AKA our destiny), this means the eclipse will send ripples to earth and cause wacky events.

They’re often referred to as “cosmic wake-up calls”, so… wake up! Pay attention! Read the signs!

What will happen during the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Aries?

While the lunar eclipse was about allowing something to come to a natural end, the solar eclipse is all about new beginnings and the start of the next chapter.

Since Aries is the planet of action, passion, purpose and drive, this lunation is all about finding the courage to finally let go and step into the unknown.

Over the next 24 hours (and the days following as eclipses always carry over and have a knock-on effect), there are boundless opportunities for growth and new beginnings, so channel the Aries spirit to seize those opps! Whether it’s ditching that terrible situationship, applying for that dream job, looking into moving overseas, or even something as simple as changing your hair.

You’re gonna feel hella restless and keen to shuffle the deck and change things up. And guess what? The eclipse energy supports this!

Take the initiative and go after what you want — don’t wait for life to come find you!

Beware, it’s likely that hidden secrets and truths may come to the surface as eclipses have been known to bring everything to light. So there may be some painful discoveries — but on the other side of that pain is peace. Remember that.

What should I do during the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Aries?

The New Moon Solar Eclipse in Aries has powerful transformative properties that will spark change and progression. You’re gonna wanna act fast if you hope to ride those waves!

As Mercury Retrograde rages on, now is the time to be introspective and analyse where you are in life. It’s a time for healing and for doing the inner work.

Perform healing rituals, do a tarot reading to see where you’re headed next, have soul-nourishing conversations with your nearest and dearest.

You’re also likely to have wacko dreams. Don’t ignore them, analyse them! Those dreams are signs from the universe and you need to read all the messages.
