New Moon in Aries on the 20th of April at 14:13
TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE
Magick will intensify with a total solar eclipse on the 20th of April. This is when the moon passes between the sun and the earth, blocking the sun’s light. Solar eclipses only occur at the new moon. The full effect of this eclipse will only be seen in Western Australia. In Melbourne only a partial eclipse will be witnessed between 1.15pm and 3.00pm.
This new moon spins her magick in the fire sign of Aries. Prepare for intense experiences as energies rise to the surface of consciousness to be purged or embraced. Aries magick call us to the new, to the excitement of change and to taking risks. You may feel your inner child waking and wanting to leap into the future. It is important to hold onto enthusiasm and a sense of wonder at this time, because this mindset will help you with the challenges of the new moon.
The moon’s square with the planet Pluto may unsettle old wounds and hurt. Pluto is the god of Hades, a mythical place that harbours our shadow-self. So, don’t be surprised if old grievances ‘crawl’ out of the shadow-world. When they do, face them with the courage and determination of the Aries ram and you will grow. It is never easy facing our darkness but when we do, it is transformed into self-knowledge as well as compassion.
Luckily, all is not as hard as it could be. The moon is conjunct with Jupiter, so those with a positive outlook will be blessed with luck and support through this time. This will take the edge of the hardship.
Through the phases of the moon we rise and fall, see light and feel darkness. Sometimes we find the answer and sometimes we do not. Embrace the mystery, see your life as an adventure and ride the bold ram through this profound eclipse. Every choice you make creates the magick.
