Aries Total Solar Eclipse

April 8, 2024:  New Moon Solar Eclipse at Aries 19°24’, 2:21 pm EDT.


This powerful Total Solar Eclipse, visible in much of the eastern United States, is defined by an exact to-the-minute conjunction of Chiron to the Sun/Moon alignment. Mercury is retrograde in Aries and in exact (within 3 minutes) conjunction to Eris, Goddess of Strife and Discord. Mars and Saturn in Pisces are conjunct within one degree. And the potent Jupiter/Uranus conjunction in Taurus (exact April 20/21) is in effect. These aspects are incredibly intense yet oddly hopeful.


Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac and holds the promise of a new beginning. In the language of Shamanic Egyptian Astrology, the ally of Aries is Kephera, the morning Sun. This energy is spontaneous, enthusiastic, insistent, and confident. Its message is a loud and assertive, “I Am!”


Chiron is allied with Anubis in his adult form as Shower of the Way. This is the wise soul who experienced abandonment and found a way to release his pain and align with his soul’s path. This is a core lesson of life on Earth. We have all experienced rejection, abandonment, and betrayal. The question isn’t whether this will happen but rather how we will respond? Do we live from our wounds, or do we find a way to move through them? Do our wounds define us, or do we define our response to our wounds?


As a collective, we are in a challenging place in our evolutionary development. We can continue as we are and suffer the consequences or decide to create a different world. These are not idle words and it’s also not magical thinking; this transformation will not be easy. We may not succeed. And right now, despite the tumult all around us, there are hopeful signs. We can heal. We can open to a new way of being, free of the pitfalls that have cursed us for so long.


Take a deep breath and step out of the portal and into the light.
