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 work plan 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.
