What Is a Total Solar Eclipse in Astrology?
A total solar eclipse occurs when the New Moon passes between the sun and the Earth, blocking out the sun’s light and temporarily turning day into darkness.
Because eclipses line up with the moon’s nodes, most astrologers believe that a solar eclipse can heavily influence people’s lives and daily experiences. Depending on your placements and the nature of the eclipse, you could be thrown out of sorts — or you could find yourself feeling calmer, clearer, and more centered than before. Regardless, eclipses can bring surprising new beginnings, transformation, and change, almost always for the better.
What To Expect From the April 8, 2024 Eclipse
The next total solar eclipse occurs on April 8, 2024. It will arrive with fiery Aries in full charge. Some outlets and individuals 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. This will also be the last total solar eclipse that can be seen from the contiguous United States until August 23, 2044.
During an eclipse, expect the unexpected. 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.
Much like a lunar eclipse, a solar eclipse can sometimes seem like it’s speeding up time and pushing you to take much-needed action. This can be shocking, but these events were likely going to happen anyway. Eclipses just bring these budding changes, however jarring, into fruition. Once this is done, these differences can all work together for your greater good.
An important note: For those who wish to see the solar eclipse, be prepared with safe solar viewing glasses, also called “eclipse glasses,” and/or a safe handheld solar viewer. Regular sunglasses are not safe for an eclipse, so be sure to follow viewing guidelines from the appropriate authorities.
The Astrological Significance of the April 8 Eclipse
Venus, the planet of love, along with the sun and moon, helps usher in incredibly positive energies during this eclipse.
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.
What Signs Will Be Most Affected by the April 8 Eclipse?
Though this eclipse will impact all your astrological placements, 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.

How To Make the Most of the April 8 Eclipse
You can assist the good that’s coming your way by setting your intentions and focusing your vision on what you want to change and create. Follow your inner guidance, then turn the reins over to Spirit.
It will help if you relax and accept the natural flow of the Universe. Whatever happens is meant to be, so do all you can to remain flexible. Also, remember that any news you receive or changes that occur may not actually happen on the exact day of the eclipse. Instead, they may begin unfolding in the month before, and they may continue for up to a month afterward.
