Solar eclipse, what is it?

Astronomically, an eclipse indicates the moment when the Moon passes between the Sun and the Earth. As a result of this movement, the sunlight is obscured by the Moon. When it's a total eclipse, this happens completely: only the solar corona is visible. Astrologically, the Solar Eclipse occurs concurrently with the New Moon of the current month and on the axis of the lunar nodes. The sign that characterizes this event is the sign of Aries, the first of all zodiac signs, the initiator par excellence. This movement emphasizes the lunar energy of the moment. Usually, the time of the eclipse is a transformative moment, chaotic but necessary to move forward and evolve, difficult to accept but something we must deal with.

Let's look at the sky

The last solar eclipse in the sign of Aries dates back to April 2023, less than a year ago. We need to observe the movements in the long term, understand that we are inside a cycle. Within this particular cycle, it will be essential to learn to balance ourselves and others, to deal with the collective dimension of our lives.

It is certainly possible to continue some relationships, but it's important to prioritize our own needs, dreams, and projects.
