Astrology of April 2024: The “Portal” & Total Solar Eclipse in Aries

Understanding the Power of Eclipses


Eclipses are gateways of change. They hold the extraordinary power to shift the tides of our lives, at lightning speed – bringing endings and beginnings all at once. And of course – the upcoming Libra-Aries Eclipse Portal is no exception!


But does this mean you should be scared? No. That’s not a great use of Astrology… However, being prepared is the difference between riding the cosmic wave and being pummeled by it. 


The Dawn of a New Eclipse Cycle


This set of eclipses signals the inception of a fresh eclipse cycle along the Aries-Libra axis, marking a significant departure from the previous Taurus-Scorpio cycle since November 2021. Notably, this marks the first Libra-Aries Eclipse portal since 2005, ushering in pivotal beginnings and closures in the realms of your chart governed by Aries and Libra.


This will be a great time to take stock of the last 19 years of your life, the most prevalent themes, what you’re leaving behind, and what you might want to bring in during the next 19-year cycle. 


The Astrological New Year: A Gateway to Your Year Ahead


As we step into the Astrological New Year, taking place amidst this eclipse portal on March 19th, this energy paints the canvas of the year ahead. Engaging with it consciously, with intention and purpose, is key.


Lunar Eclipse at 5º Libra: March 25th 2024


As we approach the Lunar Eclipse at 5º Libra on March 25th, the stage is set for a profound journey into the realms of relationships and introspection. Libra reigns supreme as the sign of partnerships, balance, and harmony. When the moon slips into the embrace of Libra, it invites us to explore the intricate dance of give-and-take within our relationships.

Moreover, as the Lunar Eclipse beckons us to cast our gaze backward – it’s the Moon’s job, afterall –  it's not merely a glance at recent months but a profound reflection on the past 19 years of our lives. And with the Moon at the South node here, it’s a time of releasing the patterns that haven’t worked during this time. 

There is an opportunity for emotional healing and renewal. Libra's influence encourages us to find peace within ourselves, which in turn will reflect in our interactions with others. The cosmic sign posts are all pointing to making space for healthier, more balanced relationships.


Solar Eclipse at 19º Aries: April 8th 2024


A solar eclipse in Aries is anything but subtle, especially when joined by Chiron, the revered wounded healer and mentor of heroes. This Aries Solar Eclipse ignites a blaze of fiery energy, propelling us towards new beginnings and uncharted territories of self-discovery.


Amidst this fervor, Mercury's retrograde presence during the Solar Eclipse may leave you torn between Aries' impulsive drive for action and Mercury's call to introspection.


Aries, the fearless pioneer of the zodiac, symbolizes passion and courage, heralding potent new beginnings and the forging of paths uniquely ours. This eclipse demands space for fresh starts, often necessitating the closure of chapters that no longer serve us — creating room for the blossoming of new potentials within.


Which Signs are Going to Be Most Impacted?


The Lunar Eclipse at 5 degrees Libra and Solar Eclipse at 19 degrees Aries will make their mark especially for those with planets in cardinal signs—Aries, Cancer, Libra, or Capricorn—around similar degrees. However, make no mistake; this eclipse pairing is crossing everyone's path.


And here's a cosmic tidbit: you indeed carry Aries and Libra influences in your chart, irrespective of planetary placements. 


Why This Libra-Aries Eclipse Portal Is A Big Deal 

(at a glance)


💥 A Striking Alignment: The Aries Eclipse will grace the skies on April 8th, fully visible across the United States and venturing into Canada. Its alignment creates a remarkable “X” configuration with the last Total Solar Eclipse of 2017 – the significance of this remains to be seen… 


💥 A Rare Phenomenon: This Libra-Aries eclipse portal, last witnessed in 2005, marks the closure of a 19-year cycle, while a new one begins its celestial dance.


💥 A Flare of Fire: With four planets, alongside the North Node and Chiron, congregating in Aries, prepare for an infusion of fiery dynamism, urging decisive action.


💥 Chiron's Embrace: A poignant conjunction with the Aries Solar Eclipse, Chiron casts light on deep-seated wounds, beckoning them to heal and awakening the inner leader within you.


💥 Saturn's Call: During the Libra Lunar Eclipse and Aries Solar Eclipse, Saturn's alignment with Venus and Mars (the rulers of the respective eclipses) calls for diligent effort and introspection.


💥 Mercury's Retrograde Dance: Adding a contrasting rhythm to the fiery Aries energy, Mercury retrograde nudges us to slow down, turn inward, and reflect.


Embrace the Eclipse Portal


As the eclipse portal unfolds its narrative, embrace the call to transformation. Whether it's navigating the reflective energy of the Libra Lunar Eclipse or igniting the flames of bold new beginnings with the Aries Solar Eclipse, this invitation is for you to step boldly into this time and realign your life with a more authentic expression of your soul.


Remember, eclipses are not merely astronomical events; they are cosmic catalysts for change, urging us to shed the old and embrace the new with courage and grace. So, as the eclipse's shadow dances across the sky, let it also weave its magic within your soul, guiding you towards your future.
