There is a new energy hovering, and it’s come to give us a much-needed mental break. This energy is going to make a collective impact, but it will affect each branch of the zodiac differently. Cardinal and mutable signs will make the necessary adjustments to weather this silent storm, while fixed signs will want to put up a fight.
We’re beginning to see the Stars make moves they haven’t made in decades. This is a sign that the Universe is undergoing a transformation. When the Universe shifts, we do as well. We haven’t seen an eclipse in Aries since 2005. I like to think of eclipses as meetings between the Sun and Moon regarding Earth. Earth being our habitat, we can feel the void that occurs during these meetings. Things slow down, as if a new direction has been provided to the masses.
New Moon Solar Eclipse in Aries on April 20
This eclipse is giving us a front row seat to our own lives. This may be uncomfortable but look at it as an opportunity to self-evaluate. Everything that has to be changed or even erased, will be magnified. The Moon in Aries will cause you to want to react but remember, this is an eclipse. Reacting can cause physical restraints such as headaches and fatigue. The best action to take is resting and hydrating.
Mercury Retrograde begins April 21
The planet of communication will be in retrograde for approximately three weeks. Normally, Mercury Retrograde gives us the motivation to speak up and be heard, but not this time. This new planetary affair is invoking silence. Be ready to refrain from explaining your side, sharing your perspective, or entering a disagreement. If you are familiar with tarot, this energy is very much so Queen of Swords-like.
It either is or it isn’t
The theme in relationships and careers this week is clarity. If you were analyzing the connections in your life, be prepared to wake up with a clear understanding of where you stand with the people you love and where they stand with you. Relationships that are hanging on by a thread will be cut off. Love bonds that are taking more work such as healing, nurturing, or rebuilding will be placed on the shelf. This energy will cause you to focus more on yourself.
