Cosmic Shift! How Will the Aries Eclipse Impact YOUR Zodiac Sign?

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably noticed all your astro-savvy friends and favorite Instagram accounts talking about both the astronomical significance and the astrological meaning of the April 8 solar eclipse.

Also called the Great American Eclipse, this celestial event holds a type of rarity that is hard to ignore.

A Rare Celestial Phenomenon

From a purely astronomical perspective, a solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes, in perfect alignment, between the Earth and the Sun. Solar eclipses are not necessarily rare—they tend to occur twice, sometimes three times in any given year. In 2024, the sky is scheduled to bring a total of two solar eclipses, the first arriving on April 8 and the second one happening on October 2.

The Great American Eclipse: Why So Special?

Ancient astronomers—who, by the way, were also astrologers—believed that the geographical area where any eclipse was visible would energetically feel its effects the most. And for those of us in North America, another solar eclipse will not be visible until 2044. This is the reason why so many stargazers (myself included), are flooding paths of visibility in a total of three countries: Mexico, Canada, and the United States.

What’s even more exciting about this eclipse is that another rare stellar event is occurring at the same time! The Mother of Dragons comet—also known as 12P/Pons-Brooks—could be visible during the eclipse, too, under the right weather conditions. Since this comet hasn’t been visible since 1954, and won’t be again until the mid-2090s, its oh-so-awaited appearance (also in the skies of the zodiac sign Aries) adds to the excitement and importance of the Great American Solar Eclipse.

Decoding the Astrological Significance

The Power of Eclipses in Astrology

Astrologically speaking, eclipses—both solar and lunar—are the most important celestial events of any given year. Since the dawn of time, humans have observed that eclipses bring fated, destined, and even surprising events. They function as energetic portals that open and close doors.

Think about it this way: Every single month, there’s a new moon, which energetically represents a new beginning. A solar eclipse is a super-charged new moon, packing the power of three new moons into one event! During solar eclipses, people set off on brand-new journeys and begin walking significant life paths—from starting a romantic relationship or taking it to the next level, to changing careers or attaining a high-level promotion.

The Influence of the April 8 Solar Eclipse in Aries

On April 8, the new moon solar eclipse is happening in Aries, a pioneering sign of leadership and courage. Ruled by red-hot Mars, Aries energy is passionate, adventurous, and even brash if not careful. What’s more: At the exact moment this eclipse is happening, a total of seven planetary influences—including the Mother Dragon comet—will be traveling in the skies of Aries.

This is an extremely fiery influence, so expect any happenings (including the new beginnings mentioned above!) to occur at the speed of light. It’s also important to note that the effects of this eclipse could arrive on the exact day or this week, but could also develop over the course of the next six months, by the time the full moon in Aries arrives on October 17. Mindfulness practices like meditation, candle-gazing, and grounding in nature will be required to avoid impulsive actions. This is especially true due to Mercury—the planet of communication—being retrograde, bringing the need to feed the fire within. Instead of acting out of impulse (or anger), embrace introspection, waiting for the universe’s cue to show you the right time to showcase your courage and leadership skills.
