Solar eclipse april event


We’ve been in an eclipse portal since a few days before the lunar eclipse on 3/25.

As I’ve been saying since the start of the year, the month of April popped out to me energetically, as one of, if not THE, key months of the year for intensity, change & new possibilities popping open.

And this eclipse by many is being called the most important eclipse & astrological event of the year.

Some are even saying it’s the most important eclipse of our lifetimes.

I’m talking about the total solar eclipse that occurs on April 8, 2024.

It will arrive with fiery Aries in full charge. More on this below…

Some are calling it the Great North American Eclipse because it is the only total solar eclipse in the 21st century that will be visible throughout the United States, Mexico, and Canada.

It’s the last total solar eclipse that can be seen from the contiguous United States until August 23, 2044.

And it’s predicted to have an even stronger influence on the United States.

If you’ve been experiencing some wonkiness in these energies, it’s linked to the expansion of our consciousness.

So it’s similar to awakening symptoms.

And no matter how uncomfortable – they’re to help you win your evolution.

Try not to resist and welcome them in to help us all in this accelerated evolution!



  • During an eclipse, expect the unexpected (the clearing and activation will frame this so you’ll benefit from helpful unexpected aspects.)
  • Solar eclipses are generally easier than lunar eclipses.
  • And while this one is very powerful, it’s easier because it’s very much about a new beginning.
  • The sun and moon are both very close to the North node, which is about our collective path of our future, of our growth.
  • And this is for both for the collective and individually.
  • Solar eclipses tend to bring up permanent endings and new beginnings.
  • They act as wild cards. (Again, framed to assist you with the highest possible benefit, within the clearing & activation)
  • Things can come out of the blue from nowhere to jump you back on your path to destiny if you’ve strayed in any way.
  • A total solar eclipse can block an unhealthy situation or person out of your life, which will ultimately prove a major blessing.
  • Spiritually speaking, what’s hidden in the shadows tends to come to light during an eclipse. You might not see it coming, but it could assist you in unexpected ways.
  • New opportunities may also appear out of the blue.
  • Venus, the planet of love, along with the sun and moon, helps usher in incredibly positive energies during this eclipse.
  • Challenge yourself to shine in new ways and be open to major personal growth.
  • Take the initiative with people and activities that matter to you.
  • Try new things.
The April 8 solar eclipse will occur at 19 degrees and 24 minutes of Aries, conjuncting Chiron in Aries as well.

Aries is the sign of fresh starts, leadership, innovation, and courage.

As such, you can expect this total solar eclipse to have a particularly strong impact on those areas of your personal life.

This New Moon solar eclipse will bring positive personal development for most people.

The New Moon is a great time to set intentions and manifest for the future, while eclipses are powerful bringers of change.

When they come together to form a total solar eclipse, they can kick off a beneficial transformation process that will grant you a fresh start.

With Chiron in action, this eclipse is also about healing your relationship with yourself.

Now is the time to recover from old wounds and explore new opportunities.

Luckily, the April 8 eclipse should have an empowering effect in this regard.

You could feel like you can take charge of your life in ways you didn’t previously think possible.

The cardinal signs of Aries, Libra, Cancer, and Capricorn at approximately 14 to 24 degrees will be most affected by the total solar eclipse on April 8.

You can assist the good that’s coming your way by focusing your vision on what you want to change and create.

Follow your inner guidance, then turn the reins over to Spirit.

This is not just an astronomical event; it is a choice point, a sacred opportunity for us.

As the solar eclipse casts its shadow, marking a brief moment of darkness that traverses North America, we stand on the threshold of profound change and boundless hope.

Unity consciousness is also more accessible under these energies, as is coming out of where there has been war & battle & entering into peace & resolution.

Eclipses come in pairs, as a duo of opposite signs.

Since the Aries new moon and hybrid eclipse on April 20, 2023, we’ve been in a cycle of eclipses on the Aries-Libra axis.

These are the zodiac signs that rule war and peace.

Aries is ruled by combative Mars, Libra by conciliatory Venus.

They’ve arrived to help us work through that balance.

Your presence will contribute to the collective energy, creating waves of change that extend far beyond the eclipse.

The opportunity to feel, experience & embody more peace – and thus spread peace – exists at the individual level too.

Chiron, the “wounded healer” comet that orbits between traditional Saturn and radical Uranus, at the time of this total solar eclipse, sits right next to the total solar eclipse!

Symbolized by a key, Chiron helps us unlock the wisdom gained from our hardships.

The April 2024 total solar eclipse on April 8 can set you on a new path that you hadn’t imagined for yourself.

While it may be surprising—or not something you even expected—a solar eclipse has a bigger vision in store for you.

The April 8 total solar eclipse could initiate an awe-inspiring personal development, a global event or scientific breakthrough.
