During an Akashic Reading, I always identify the moments or relationships in my clients lives that indicate a necessary shift on their path forward. I call these catalytic events. Often they’re a slow burn to prepare us for change, but sometimes they are unexpected and sudden – a legit Tower moment.
I think this current lunar energy is going to show us both.
So, before you read any further, take a moment to jot down some truths about your current life that you already know deep in your soul… The truths you simply may not want to face – truths you have been avoiding and procrastinating around. And listen, it’s OK to not want to face your fears, but if you also know in your heart of hearts that you aren’t acting on all the hints the Universe has been dropping… well buckle-up friends.
You’re about to experience the power of being re-directed and re-aligned by the power of a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Aries.
✨ Fun Fact for the Moon Nerds: When an eclipse falls on a New Moon, it’s considered a solar eclipse, and when it falls on a Full Moon, it’s considered a lunar eclipse. “Eclipse Season” is the period of time from 7-ish days before one eclipse, to 7-ish days after the other. They always come in pairs.
And THIS particular eclipse on April 19th is considered rare because it’s a sort of hybrid. A unique combination of a total eclipse, and an annular eclipse. That means the moon's shadow will partially block the sun, AND create a cool ring of fire around the moon.
Ya ready to fall into a burning ring of fire, Johnny Cash?
Aries energy moves in to help us feel like we are actively taking part in the creation of our own opportunities, and that maybe we actually CAN achieve our dreams. Aries supports consistent action & practices that support the outcomes we most want.
That’s the Aries fire lighting us up – and the rarity of this eclipses suggests a significant transition/shift in our lives.
This solar eclipse activates a gateway to a new reality and brings in the opportunities we have been dreaming of… Doors open to new paths.
Some of these opportunities may come as a surprise, while others support the goals we have been working toward for some time. If you’ve been feeling impatient and ready to really DO something, this eclipse energy can feel like a fire has been lit, and you’re burning with strength, courage, passion, and determination.
It can also push us to stand/speak up for ourselves, take leaps of faith, and harness the confidence to walk through all the new doors opening for us.
✨ Maneuvering Your Soul Blueprint: During this time, pay attention to HOW you are being guided to move - this will provide you with clues to WHERE you are headed. To find out what specific areas of your life this eclipse will impact, check your birth charts. What houses contain Aries? These are the themes that will be intensified/amplified during this period. For example, I have Aries in my 6th House of work, health, and daily routine, and my 7th house of relationships. And let me tell you… all of those areas of my life are under a major spotlight right now. BIG TIME.
✨ Another cool fact: Since this eclipse falls at 29 degrees of Aries, it activates our karmic debt and lessons - debt you brough over from past lives and lessons you wrote for yourself to master in this life. In Astrology, 29 degrees is tied to our soul’s evolution and it’s not necessarily an easy path. But it CAN be fun and empowering if you see things through a more adventurous lens.
That’s the new path I was talking about – where we meet our destiny and step into a more divine expression of self. So don’t be afraid to harness all that beautiful Aries confidence, courage, passion, individuality, and leadership. Breathe it in and take the next logical steps.
How Eclipses Help Us Get Back On Track Even though the solar eclipse will only last up to 8 minutes, the energy it brings in is intense. An eclipse can show us where we're not in the flow of life and help us get back on track by shining a light on our shadow and amplifying it.
Avoidance? Procrastination? Not gonna fly under the watchful eye of Aries, babes.
Think of it like this - you came to Earth with a purpose to fulfill, but it's always been easier for us to listen to our fear, instead of our intuition. We are so easily thrown-off by life’s lessons and challenges, that we veer out of alignment and off-path.
That's when life starts to feel fucking hard, fucking mean and fucking exhausting.
This dissatisfaction lets us know we’re not on the path we designed for ourselves or living a life that lights us up. But we feel stuck and helpless to make the necessary improvements & we fight or resist change.
But change brings a new direction to head in as we align with our soul’s purpose.
So along comes an eclipse to pull us back to where we're meant to be.
Solar eclipse energy can profoundly mix things tf up - in order for us to wake tf up.
Honestly, the way that we think about eclipses needs to be revised. We need to learn to work with the amplified energy they bring us to heal patterns and triggers that keep us out of alignment with our soul blueprint.
Listen, I'm not saying that eclipse energy can't be intense (and even painful) but it's often the uncomfortable spaces & phases in our lives that wake us up and force us to look at any necessary course corrections.
Eclipses are a time of breakthrough. So work with the energy, instead of against it. Show up for yourself.
Re-frame healing. Look at it as the ability to process painful emotions in order to liberate yourself from burdens. Choose freedom by surrendering what needs to be shed.
How To Work With This Solar Eclipse
The best intentions to set when working with eclipse energy are…
Simply release and let go with the flow.
Stop hanging on to all the things that keep you stuck.
Stop making decisions that don't support your desired outcomes.
But this lunar event will also require some deep meditation...
Prepare your space. Light a candle, dim the lights, clear the room of energy, burn incense, surround yourself with crystals and play beautiful, soothing music in the background. Call in your Higher-Self using a connection practice that feels powerful in your body.
Connect to your Ancestors, Guides, Archangels and Spiritual Team to feel safe and grounded. See yourself opening your akashic record (it doesn’t matter if you can’t read it, just being in it’s energy is enough), and expand your auric field farther and farther out around you… to the farthest reaches of the Universe.
Now spend time focusing on your relationship with yourself and ask to be shown your truth without self-interpretation, or self-judgement. Record your thoughts or channels in a journal:
What important and necessary changes need to be made?
Do you simply need a break, or is it time to release and totally let go?
Where will you decide to no longer self-sabotage?
What neglected part of yourself are you now ready to care for?
What behaviors are no longer acceptable?
What do you need to give yourself more of?
What dissatisfying patterns consistently reoccur in your life?
What does true clarity feel like to you?
Eclipse energy intensifies what is already present within us. It’s going to show us what we must deal with, in order to move on. If we are sincerely focused on what needs to be addressed within, we can leverage this challenging energy and use it to create big changes in our lives.
If you feel stuck, keep asking yourself deeper questions until you come up with an answer that you feel in your soul as your truth.
Pull tarot and oracle cards for validation of all you received.
As you process and integrate your insights, create a practice dedicated to change and transformation:
Make the decision to look at yourself with more kindness.
Get honest with yourself and decide where you truly want to be in a month, 6 months or a year.
What needs to be cleared from your life?
What needs to be expressed in bigger and more expansive ways?
What lights up your soul and what activities allow you to share your magic with the world?
If your life is already magical, what do you want to manifest even more of around you?
Open to all the love you need.
Open to all the connection and intimacy you crave.
Open to all the peace you are ready to live in.
And if you want to go REALLY BIG, open to the visibility you're ready to embrace, and all of the creativity that's ready to come from within you.
Daydream your best life from sunrise to sunset, and then create a daily practice that serves as a reminder of those dreams.
What new beginnings would you like to experience?
What endings must happen in order for those to take place?
Eclipse season is the time to stop procrastinating and start making taking the appropriate action when you get to the point of being really fucking tired of your own bullshit. I seriously encourage you to use this Aries/Scorpio season to make decisions and take actions that are long overdue – before the energy involuntarily clears away parts of your life that are no longer needed. Endings and beginnings are synonymous with eclipses so the urge to start new chapters may feel long overdue.
It could feel like a breakdown before a breakthrough.
Be gentle with yourself and ask for feedback from trusted friends and advisors.
The last thing to remember is that it can take several weeks/months to see the lessons and the blessings of a specific eclipse season. That's why it's helpful to keep a journal to track your moon phases, and to use Tarot & Oracle to give you more specific details around what you most need to focus on.
I’m here to guide you through this Eclipse Season if you feel the need, friends. Book an Akashic Soul Blueprint reading with me, AND put the above into practice – and baby, you’ll come out the other side of this a Fucking Rockstar.
~ The next Eclipse in this current season is a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio on May 5th~
