Harness the Power of the April Eclipses: A Guide to Personal Transformation

Are the planets up there messing with us? I don’t believe they “have it in” for us, but I do believe we are connected to everything in the universe through an energetic matrix.  We are swimming in the same currents of energy as the planets and astrology provides a map to navigate that matrix. 

We are preparing for the solar eclipse on April 8, a potent time for transformation. Eclipse season occurs roughly twice a year, when the new and full moons occur on or close to the lunar nodes, the place where the moon’s path around the sun intersects with the Sun’s path around the earth

The recent Lunar Eclipse in Libra on March 25th initiated a period of emotional release. It was a time to shed old fears and limiting beliefs to create space for new beginnings.  If you haven’t already, consider creating a “compost board” (a list or collection of images) representing aspects of your life you wish to release. Take a few minutes to thank the list for all the lessons learned. Burning or burying this list symbolically can facilitate letting go and pave the way for positive change.  The Solar eclipse is our opportunity to invite in something new.     

Visible across much of North America, the total solar eclipse on April 8 ushers in a powerful new cycle. Aries, the sign of the ram, embodies courage, independence, and taking initiative.  With the Sun, Moon, and North Node (representing new beginnings) all clustered in Aries, this eclipse is a potent call to action. It has special importance because it is exactly conjunct Chiron.  Chiron travels around the Sun between Saturn and Uranus. It is the bridge between the worlds of the seen and the unseen. It symbolizes powerful healing energy.  This eclipse encourages us to tap into our inner bravery, embrace authenticity, and take a leap of faith towards a life that truly aligns with our values and wholeness. 

On Wednesday April 10, Mars will conjoin Saturn in Pisces. This will help consolidate the new change you are embracing. Mars is the planet that brings energy, drive and desire to our endeavors.  Saturn is the planet of discipline, responsibility and restrictions.  When these two meet, it creates a vibe that is much like stepping on the gas while pumping the brakes.  If you are not clear in your intentions, the car can spin out and that can be quite frustrating.  However, if you are clear in your goals and intentions, this energy can provide the energy and discipline to persevere until your plans come to fruition. The energy spurring change is strengthened by the looming conjunction of Jupiter, the planet of ideals, expansion, and generosity, with Uranus, the planet of sudden change. These two will meet up later this month and they are only 2 degrees apart this week; so their energy is already palpable. As noted above, we are swimming in the same currents of energy as the planets, and this month is our opportunity to ride the waves rather than crash into the beach.
