Eclipses are considered to be vital because they are associated with fate.
A solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes between the earth and the sun, and although the sun is larger than the Moon, they are roughly the same size when viewed from Earth; therefore, the Moon blocks out the sun. A solar eclipse can only occur at a new moon when the sun and the moon are in conjunction, which can be total, partial, or annular.
The distance between the Earth and the moon varies by 10%, and an eclipse occurs when the moon is at a perigee, the closest point to the Earth, when a total eclipse occurs. When the moon is furthest from the Earth, this is called Apogee, which does not cover the sun's disc but leaves a solar ring around it; this is called an annular eclipse. The ring of light around the moon is called " the ring of fire."
A lunar eclipse can only happen at a full moon when the moon opposes the sun, and the moon passes into the shadow of the Earth. Luna eclipse can last up to two hours, and the earth's complete shadow, the umbra, is greater than the moon's diameter. A partial lunar eclipse will occur only when the moon partially passes into the Earth's Umbra; if the Moon misses the umbra altogether, it is called a penumbral eclipse.
Six weeks from the eclipse date, its energy will be felt; therefore, be prepared. A new moon eclipse is a solar eclipse, meaning the energy will be plus, extra. This is a good time for a change.
Take notes of the sign symbolism of the natal house in which the solar and the lunar eclipse fall. The house in your chart where an eclipse occurs represents an area of your life that needs review and change. It will be good to embrace the changes being offered and consider the eclipse an opportunity for a fresh start. This is an excellent time to clear the playing field, and a whole new life is possible.
Transiting eclipses will have the most significant impact when a conjunct, square, or opposes your sun or moon and the ascendant, midheaven, or the ruler of your center. Check where in eclipse is happening in your natal chart.
It will be incredibly potent and significant for you if it is a 1° to 2° orb of a planet or points in your natal chart. All eclipses can bring dramatic life-altering changes, but if it's close to any celestial body in your natal chart, then be prepared. It will take some time, but when the dust settles, you will be acquainted with your new life and a different way of being.
Prenatal Solar Eclipse (PNSE)
Check the Prenatal Solar Eclipse (PNSE) that occurred when you were in utero, which is a lifelong sensitive degree in your chart. PNSE can be pretty significant to the affairs of the house where your PNSE is located or essential throughout your life. The house placement of your PNSE shows where you need to grow and expand continually, and the eclipse will speak directly with your PNSE; it can have life-altering effects on you.
You can use many vibrational tools to stay calm and collected during eclipses or just in life; however, essential oils can be vital. Essential oils can help you stay relaxed, go with the flow of events and be more adaptable during the time it takes to integrate the changes. Earthy and woody essential oils have the most harmonizing and stabilizing effect on your emotions during and after the eclipses.
Here are a few good oils:
April 20 (1:17 am PT): Hybrid Solar Eclipse in Aries at 29° 52’
This is a rare eclipse because it's hybrid; only seven have occurred this century, the most recent in 2013, 2023, and 2031. A hybrid eclipse is when the magnitude of the eclipse changes, appearing total at one location and annular at another. This will also be the second Aries New Moon following the one of the Spring Equinox.
This will be monumental for a fresh start. This could begin a new way you live and how you do things.
It's a great time to part with old ways and set new paths for more significant potential as needed changes come o the surface. These changes can come about subtly or be dramatic; therefore, be prepared if you get knocked off your course. These adjustments can last for six months or over a more prolonged period.
Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and marks the start of the new moon cycle. The time for dreaming is over, and it's time to take action; you now have a clean slate when making your new moon wishes; if you've been lacking in action about doing them, this is the time to get back on board.
This will be an excellent time to make a 12-month plan; if you're a couple, make a plan for yourself and also a plan for your partner as a couple. Doing a 12-month plan for work would be good as well. Aries is an impulsive sign, so you might think it's too high energy right now to make plans, but with a bit of discipline, anything is possible; this is a good time to infuse your plans with the fiery Aries energy with enthusiasm and to drive and determination.
Have courage, and don't be timid to move forward with whatever you're facing, including your wish list. Make use of this encouraging time for new beginnings.
Save some time for FUN!

Questions to ask yourself
Have I been jealous, vengeful, suspicious, or otherwise behaved in a toxic manner?
Have I been living out of fear rather than Joy?
Have I been brooding and dark, focused on the negative rather than the positive?
Have I been vicious or slick?
Am I having the sex I need to feel good about myself?
This is an excellent time to bring your " Sexy Back" and balance intensity and lazy contentment. Perform the moon forgiveness ceremony, write down your forgiveness list, and burn it. Be grateful, perform a gratitude ceremony, write a list, and burn it.
October 14 (3 pm PT): Annular Solar Eclipse in Libra at 21° 10’
Libra is the sign of partnership, so this month, ask yourself how well you're getting on with the important people in your life and whether a bit of harmonization negotiation would serve you better. Libra is about harmony and cooperation, so bring these back into your life if they have been missing.
Libra's entry is about give and take but more about giving. Their focus is on you rather than me. Partnerships are essential now; if you're married or your business partnership needs work, these issues may surface now, and you should sort them out. Libra is very social and diplomatic, so bring those qualities to the forefront now as the New Moon is in this lovely sign. Negotiate or renegotiate the things that are not making you happy, as this new moon in libra is a beautiful time to bring things to balance. Use the motto "I agree" and see what happens.
The image we present to the world says a lot about who we are, and this is also an excellent time to make yourself beautiful, but not superficially. Look gorgeous; Libras are also refined and beautiful, so if you need to balance things out, take action this month while the New Moon is in libra to back you up.
If codependency is an issue, this is the month to work on that as well, as Libras are about partnerships, but sometimes we can take that too far. If you've lost your sense of identity, this is an ideal time to do something about it.
