Solar Eclipse Conjunct Chiron

Aspect of the Week: occurring on April 8, 2024, Solar Eclipse Conjunct Chiron

This spring Mars points the way to the future via the north node in Aries, while the Venus ruled south node in Libra speaks to what, or to whom, we may have sold ourselves short. Old ways of relating, whether to partners or to ourselves may be due for an upgrade.

 Our sense of identity, physical health and most personal wants, needs, and ambitions are highlighted.

While we tend to think of Aries’ energy as a springy step forward, this eclipse season may at first deliver what feels more like a step back.

Chiron, the wounded healer, at the heart of this eclipse, suggests old wounds may be holding us back. It also informs us of the pain involved when we step outside prescribed roles, whether societal, familial, or professional. In this case however, the pain of self-betrayal may outweigh the need for support and approval from others.

Take time to reflect and strategize during the first few weeks of April. Think about implementing changes after the 25th.

This is a potent eclipse and it’s influence will be felt over the next 2.5 years.
