On April 8th, 2024 we have a total eclipse of the sun.  

A solar eclipse happens during the new moon when the moon passes between the earth and the sun, blocking our view of at least part of the sun; a total solar eclipse (like the one happening on April 8) is when the moon completely blocks the sun.  

In astrology, eclipses occur when the moon reaches the extremities of its elliptical orbit, known as the Lunar Nodes—namely, the North and South Nodes of Destiny. At these points, in perfect alignment with the sun and earth, eclipses take place. Spiritually, they serve as pivotal moments in our lifetimes, catalysts for change and growth. Eclipses illuminate hidden matters, compelling us to confront and address them. Their inherent unpredictability injects the universe’s narrative with excitement and unforeseen twists—until now.


The transiting Lunar Nodes of Destiny chart the trajectory of our journey over 1.5-year cycles, orbiting between two opposing signs. Currently, they traverse the Aries-Libra axis. Astrologically, these Nodes indicate the realm of our karma. The North Node of Destiny, presently stationed in Aries since July 17, 2023, signals a call to prioritize self-directed endeavors. It encourages embracing self-interest and prioritizing personal growth. Conversely, the South Node of Destiny, located in Libra, urges us to shed outdated relationship paradigms. With the North Node in Aries emphasizing connection with our passions and authentic desires, the South Node’s presence in Libra cautions against overthinking and clinging to relationships that no longer serve our growth.

Eclipses hold profound significance in astrology, marking moments where we step into our destined path. Aligned with the North and South Lunar Nodes, these celestial events propel us toward our life’s purpose, nudging us beyond our comfort zones. They signify breakthroughs and shake-ups, inviting transformative shifts into our lives.

The next total one after this won’t be until Aug. 23, 2044 so take advantage of the energies present!!


1. Self-Reflection and Renewal: Just as the moon momentarily blocks the sun’s radiant light, the Solar Eclipse prompts us to pause, reflect, and delve deep into our inner selves. Use this time for introspection, meditation, and setting intentions for the future. This is a great time to journal
2. Release and Let Go: Eclipses are powerful portals for releasing stagnant energies and shedding old patterns that no longer serve us. Take this opportunity to release emotional baggage, fears, and limitations, allowing space for new beginnings and opportunities to manifest.

3. Manifestation Rituals: Channel the potent energy of the Solar Eclipse into manifestation rituals to align your desires with the cosmic flow. Create vision boards, write affirmations, or perform candle magic to amplify your intentions and bring them into fruition.

4. Connect with Nature: Spend time outdoors, basking in the mystical ambiance of the eclipse. Commune with nature, ground yourself in the Earth’s energy, and absorb the transformative vibes of this celestial event.

May the celestial energies of the Solar Eclipse illuminate your path and inspire you to shine brightly amidst the darkness.
