2023 Aries New Moon - Solar Eclipse
Category: Astrology by Dale Written by Dale Osadchuk
However, you “look” at it from a physical or metaphysical perspective this Aries New Moon Solar Eclipse is spectacular. The Eclipse path is visible from Australia and Indonesia. It is an unusual Hybrid eclipse.
It begins as an Annular Ring of Fire (where the Moon’s outer edge is lit by the Sun) then becomes Total (when the Moon completely blocks the Sun) and then returns to the Ring of Fire to complete its path. The theme is a time for inspired action, a time for intuitive introspection, and a time for new inspiration. That will be the theme for next 6 months.
This Solar Eclipse influences our journey until the Libra New Moon Eclipse of Oct 14. Our current New Moon Eclipse is at 29 degrees Aries 50 minutes. Usually, Aries is about inspired new beginnings. But the 29th degree is about completion. This is the second Aries New Moon and is the Moon of Transformation. The first was on Mar 21 at 00 degrees Aries. Look at what you have been trying to create in the last month. Does it still inspire you? If not, it is time to let it go. Our Aries Eclipse is squared (motivation for change and finding new ways of doing things) by Pluto at 00 degrees Aquarius (release, transformation of consciousness, and new vision). Later today (April 20) the Moon enters Taurus and the Sun enters Taurus (what is of true value and importance) still squared by Pluto. Remember this energy guides us for the next 6 months.
Mars is the traditional ruler of Aries. He is currently at 13 degrees Cancer 07 minutes (spiritual action guided by intuitive wisdom). He is in a sextile aspect with Mercury at 15 degrees Taurus 33 minutes (focusing on what is of true value). In Esoteric Astrology Mercury (our thoughts and perceptions) is the Soul Centered ruler of Aries and again will influence the next 6 months. Mercury turns retrograde on Apr 21 at 15 degrees Taurus and will move direct on May 14 at 5 degrees Taurus. He has been in his retrograde shadow since Apr 07 and will clear it May 31. As always with Mercury retrograde the theme is “change your thoughts and you change your life.” This is actually the beginning of retrograde season. This summer we will have 7 planets in retrograde motion (introspection and intuitive guidance).
In the Northern Hemisphere our Animal Totem guides for the Aries eclipse are Falcon, clear vision, and Red Tailed Hawk, spiritual messenger. Pay attention to messages from Spirit to guide you. For Taurus we are guided by Beaver, clearing the clutter and building the new. For the Southern Hemisphere Aries is guided by Crow, sacred law and fairness for all, and Raven, magic and entering The Mysteries. For Taurus, your guide is Snake, shedding the old and renewal. But wherever you live they are available to us all.
The Clan Mother who guides Aries (both Hemispheres) is Looks Far Woman. She is the guardian of the Crack in the Universe and the Golden Door of Illumination. She teaches us how to use our inner strength when we face challengers. As this is the Moon of transformation she is joined by Becomes Her Vision. She is the guardian of transformation and guides us to become Our Vision and cross the healing bridge into wholeness. She will join the other Clan Mothers in the months ahead.

Our construction issues have finally completed but I am now experiencing health challenges so personal readings are still on hold. Thanks for your understanding. If this post is a little late that is why.
Namaste and blessings,
I will be offering telephone sessions again soon.
