Get ready for an electrifying celestial event! We will experience a New Moon in Aries, which also happens to be a solar eclipse. Aries is known for its fiery and assertive energy, and this solar eclipse is expected to bring powerful and transformative changes to our lives.

So, this is how solar eclipses works:

Solar eclipses occur when the Moon passes between the Earth and the Sun, temporarily blocking the sun’s light. This astronomical phenomenon is significant in many cultures and is often associated with changes, new beginnings, and shifts in consciousness.

This solar eclipse falls in the sign of Aries. Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and is associated with courage, independence, and action. It is a fire sign, symbolizing passion, drive, and determination. The energy of Aries is dynamic, impulsive, and assertive, making this solar eclipse an intense and transformative event.

During a New Moon, the sun and the moon are in alignment, symbolizing a new cycle and fresh start. This solar eclipse invites us to take bold action and set powerful intentions for new beginnings in our lives. It’s a time to let go of the old and make way for the new, to step out of our comfort zones, and to embrace change with enthusiasm and courage.

This solar eclipse is likely to bring about shifts in various aspects of our lives, including relationships, careers, and personal growth. It may highlight areas where we need to be more assertive, take risks, and make changes to align with our authentic selves. It’s a potent time for self-reflection and introspection, as we assess our desires, goals, and aspirations, and take steps towards manifesting them.

We do want to remind you:

With the intense energy of Aries, it’s important to be mindful of impulsive actions and potential conflicts. Remember, Aries can be fiery and impulsive, and this solar eclipse may bring about a sense of restlessness or impulsiveness. It’s essential to channel this energy constructively and consciously, and to be mindful of our actions and their potential consequences.

To make the most of this New Moon in Aries solar eclipse, we’ve included a materials list, so that you can create and personalize your ritual (refer to our Moon Rituals blog for guidance) and follow the suggestions below:

Materials needed:

  • A small black or dark-colored candle
  • Matches or a lighter
  • A small bowl of water
  • A piece of paper and a pen
    • A crystal or gemstone associated with Aries (such as garnet, red jasper, or citrine)
    1. Set Powerful Intentions: Take time to reflect on what you want to manifest in your life. Set powerful intentions for new beginnings and write them down. Visualize yourself already living those intentions and take inspired action towards them.
    2. Embrace Change: Be open to change and willing to step out of your comfort zone. Embrace the energy of transformation and be willing to let go of the old to make way for the new.
    3. Take Courageous Action: Because Aries energy is all about taking action, identify areas in your life where you need to be more assertive and take courageous steps towards your goals. Trust your instincts and have faith in your abilities.
    4. Practice Self-Care: With intense energies, it’s crucial to take care of yourself. Make self-care a priority during this time. Get enough rest, eat well, exercise, and practice mindfulness to stay grounded and centered.
    5. Be Mindful of Impulsiveness: Take a moment to pause, breathe, and respond consciously, rather than reacting impulsively in the heat of the moment.

    In conclusion, the New Moon in Aries solar eclipse, is a powerful and transformative cosmic event that invites us to embrace change, take courageous action, and set powerful intentions for new beginnings.

    It’s a time to tap into our inner fire, be assertive!
