Hi there Invisible Good friend, April right here, and the date right now is April 8, 2024. Welcome to Episode 229 of the Massive Sky Astrology Podcast. This week, the Aries New Moon Photo voltaic Eclipse asks us how we may be of service to others; Mars makes a conjunction with Saturn, demanding self-discipline and dedication; the Solar makes a conjunction with Mercury; and I reply a listener query about Chiron within the chart of the photo voltaic eclipse.

Aries New Moon/Photo voltaic Eclipse (April 8, 2024, 11:21 am PDT)

The week begins with the Moon Report, and the Aries New Moon Photo voltaic Eclipse on April eighth at 11:21 am Pacific Time. That’s at 19º24’ Aries. The Sabian image for this diploma is 20 Aries, A younger lady feeding birds in winter.

By the point you take heed to this episode, it can most likely be getting near eclipse time. And when you’ve got traveled someplace particular to see the occasion, I hope that you’ve stunning visibility and that you just’re with folks that may actually get pleasure from it with you. What a powerful and thrilling occasion.

In astrology, eclipses and specifically photo voltaic eclipses are a little bit bit unsettling and their placement in your delivery chart, so the diploma 19º24’ Aries reveals what space of life you’re possibly being a little bit bit shaken up in.

The thought of the shake-up is to maneuver us from the complacency that we are able to typically expertise on the South Node of the Moon and to maneuver us farther alongside the trail towards the North Node and it’s because eclipses happen when now we have a New or Full Moon very near one of many lunar nodes. Within the case of this photo voltaic eclipse, it solutions the query that was posited on the Full Moon lunar eclipse on March twenty fifth in Libra, which is, are you giving an excessive amount of of your company and autonomy to others, moderately than pursuing the factor that’s significant to you personally?

Now, to pursue our personal path doesn’t imply that now we have to disregard others. And it’s one thing that I like concerning the Sabian image for the photo voltaic eclipse, this younger lady feeding the birds in winter.

It jogged my memory of a TED Speak that I watched just lately by the founding father of a corporation known as 365Give. She says, “It began as a easy concept to show my three-year-old son be sort, compassionate, and joyful. We began with only one small, intentional act of giving each day. three hundred and sixty five days later, we modified the world.” I’ll hyperlink to this video for you within the present notes. It’s a very easy however very stunning story about how this one lady’s mission together with her son unfold all through their whole neighborhood and ultimately touched folks everywhere in the world.

The purpose of the mission, she stated, was about being a happier individual. And she or he found by means of her analysis that giving modifications the mind and truly wires us for happiness. What can we do at this eclipse to “feed the birds in winter,” to provide meals or love, fun, sort phrases, inspiration, or the rest that could be significant and useful to somebody in your life who actually wants it? And it doesn’t need to be something large or grand. It may be the only gestures.

This eclipse has a powerful reference to the previous, for the reason that eclipse level is in a conjunction with Mercury, which is retrograde. And we’re requested to look again, and specifically, at earlier years when there have been photo voltaic eclipses close to this level in latest historical past. That was a photo voltaic eclipse on April eighth, 2005, and a photo voltaic eclipse on April ninth, 1986.

These are timeframes that may very well be significant to you now, as a result of there’s a connection between this eclipse and people eclipses. Look to the home of your delivery chart, the place 19º24’ of Aries falls. That provides you a clue as to what space of life you want to extra strenuously pursue your function, and to make it possible for it’s a function that can also be useful and useful to others.

The eclipse level doesn’t make a number of points, apart from that conjunction with Mercury, and in addition a conjunction with Chiron, which I’m going to speak about in the course of the listener questions phase. However Mars, which is the ruler of Aries, is making a conjunction with Saturn, and I believe that has nice bearing on this eclipse. I’ll be speaking about that a little bit bit later on this episode, but it surely actually has an affect. And so do Jupiter and Uranus, that are getting ever nearer to their conjunction on April twentieth.

Lunar Part Household Cycle

This New Moon initiates a lunar part household cycle, so the story that begins now, the eclipse story of change, it’s activated at three completely different factors within the subsequent few years. 9 months from now, there’s a First Quarter Moon on January sixth, 2025, very near the diploma of this eclipse. That’s when some sort of motion or ahead movement is taken with one thing that we initiated at this eclipse. 9 months after that, on October sixth, 2025, on the Full Moon, there is a chance to get a much bigger perspective, a much bigger image of what’s actually essential to finish this story. And, on July seventh, 2026, there’s a Final Quarter Moon that offers one final alternative to refine this story, this message, and to take no matter motion is required to convey it to completion.

As a result of they contain the Moon, these lunar part household cycles can typically be fairly delicate. So, what I’ve been doing these days is preserving a journal, and I word every part that’s occurring in my life round every new Moon, nonetheless trivial it might sound, so I can look again each 9 months at these essential phases and learn the way they join with what was taking place on the New Moon.

Void-of-Course Moon durations

Let’s take a look at the Void-of-Course Moon durations for this week.

On April eighth, the Moon in Aries makes a conjunction with Mercury, which is retrograde, at 7:39 pm Pacific Time. It’s Void of Course for about eight-and-three-quarter hours, after which enters Taurus on April ninth at 4:23 am.

The Void-of-Course Moon durations, I believe, are particular as a result of they present alternatives to make modifications in our rituals and routines and our beliefs. A Void-of-Course Moon interval that begins when the Moon is in a conjunction with one other planet reveals there’s some sort of intense feeling of strain and the strain right here is the truth that emotions and instincts, represented by the Moon in Aries, are catching up with ideas and cognition. A method this could be taking place is that one thing that was stated, some data that we obtained across the time of the lunar eclipse on March twenty fifth, when Mercury was close to this diploma, now the emotions are starting to set in about that communication.

We’ve all most likely discovered ourselves in a state of affairs the place data comes at us and we flip our emotions off in order that we are able to deal with what’s coming in. After which in a while, after the actual fact, we start to have the emotions. So, that may be a chance with this Void-of-Course Moon interval. However it additionally says it’s a time, it’s a fairly good chunk of time, 8 hours, the place we are able to begin to rewire ourselves to attempt to say what we really feel once we’re feeling it.

On April eleventh, the Moon in Taurus sextiles Neptune in Pisces at 3:04 am Pacific Time. It’s Void-of-Course for a little bit underneath three hours after which enters Gemini at 5:58 am. Sextiles convey an invite or a possibility, new data coming in. The invitation or the chance at this Void-of-Course Moon interval is round getting our sensible each day routines in place in order that they assist Neptune features.

Neptune features are about instinct and creativeness and dwelling a life that’s a little bit extra artistic or a little bit bit off the crushed path. As a result of if we don’t do this, then Neptune can take us down the highway of being in denial of procrastinating and these different adverse qualities.

On April thirteenth, the Moon in Gemini squares Neptune at 7:46 am Pacific Time. It’s Void-of-Course for about 3 hours after which enters Most cancers at 10:45 AM. Once we see the Moon in a sq. facet starting a Void-of-Course Moon interval, we all know that there’s battle that must be resolved. And the battle right here is about how busyness, chattiness, flitting round from factor to factor can actually make it onerous to calm down and discover the quieter and extra contemplative aspect of life, which is symbolized by Neptune. So throughout this Void-of-Course interval, it’s good to ask: Do you are likely to assume your emotions moderately than feeling them? And how much modifications may you make to convey that into a greater steadiness?

Mars conjunct Saturn (April 10, 2024, 1:36 pm PDT)

On April tenth at 1:36 pm Pacific Time, Mars makes a conjunction with Saturn at 14º40’ Pisces. That is on the Sabian image 15 Pisces, An officer making ready to drill his troops. The final conjunction between Mars and Saturn – it solely occurs each couple of years – was on April 4th, 2022. And it was within the signal of Aquarius.

Mars and Saturn collectively are about restraining our Mars impulses towards impulsiveness, impatience, self-centeredness, anger. And once we put Mars along with Saturn, we’re sort of placing it right into a playpen for a timeout. We put boundaries round it in order that we stay protected and in addition in order that Mars is simpler.

We have to have Mars in our lives. It’s the factor that actually retains us transferring, going after what it’s that we would like, and defending ourselves and defending the folks that we care about. So, we don’t wish to eliminate Mars altogether, however what we wish to do is mood, restrain, and prepare him in order that he can use all of his qualities for good and in a accountable manner.

Saturn brings the self-control, the sacrifice, and the self-discipline which are essential. So as to serve a significant trigger, which I believe is basically, in the end, what Mars and Saturn each need once they’re within the signal of Pisces. I like that picture of the Sabian image, An officer making ready to drill his troops, they usually’re all lined up in a row, and he’s on the point of put them by means of their paces in order that they will present him what they’ve realized, and the results of their coaching.

Now, any planet that’s positioned in Pisces must know the place the escape routes are in any given state of affairs. Pisces is an indication whose solely means to defend itself is escape, and it is a Mars along with Saturn that actually has no escape zone. It has given up its autonomy and its company to Saturn, to a powerful boss, to a powerful chief, to a state of affairs the place hopefully it may possibly attain its highest function. However that comes with that sacrifice of getting to remain put and do what any person else is telling you to do. By no means a contented feeling for Mars, even when it’s in Pisces.

Mars, along with Saturn, then, generally is a little little bit of a irritating transit when it comes our manner. And that is particularly so within the few days main as much as the precise facet. So between about April seventh and the tenth, about the identical time we’re going by means of this essential eclipse, Mars – which is the ruler of the eclipse, as a result of it guidelines Aries – is on this conjunction with Saturn. It’s a number of depth and a number of strain, however it is a transit that reveals us, are you ready to commit and to surrender a few of your private autonomy with a view to serve one thing greater than your self?

Solar conjunct Mercury (April 11, 2024, 4:03 pm PDT)

After which on April eleventh at 4:03 pm Pacific Time, Mercury and the Solar come collectively in a conjunction at 22º32’ Aries. Anytime a planet comes collectively in a conjunction with the Solar, it initially loses its efficiency. It’s drowned out by the robust gentle and intense warmth of the Solar. However the nearer it will get, and because it will get to that precise second of conjunction, 4:03 pm Pacific Time, when they’re closest collectively, Mercury enters a situation we name cazimi, which implies it’s within the coronary heart of the Solar, and that is a gap for psychological readability and highly effective insights.

That is Mercury at its strongest, so if there’s something that you just’re engaged on that’s of the character of Mercury, let’s say a brand new mission, one thing you’re writing, an essential connection that you just hope to make with somebody, say a job interview or one thing of that nature, go for it!

Attempt to time it as carefully as you may to this cazimi second at 4:03 pm. I’d say most likely an hour or two main as much as this and possibly a little bit bit after are the height moments for this.

The Sabian image for the conjunction is 23 Aries, a pregnant lady in gentle summer season costume. The being pregnant is the important thing right here. It’s a second pregnant with promise and no matter huge mission we’re carrying round and gestating is now able to be revealed.

Listener Query: Photo voltaic Eclipse with Chiron

On this week’s listener query, listener Anna writes, “Hi there April, I really get pleasure from your podcast, particularly the bonus episodes for supporters.” That’s nice. Thanks, Anna. “I wished to succeed in out concerning the upcoming April eighth eclipse at 19º24 minutes Aries, and the way it sits subsequent to Chiron. My Chiron is 24 levels Aries, and plenty of folks round my age are having a Chiron return.

I ponder when you’ve got any ideas about whether or not the April eighth eclipse has particular significance for these of us in our late 40s and early 50s. We Gen Xers aren’t recognized for our sunny outlook, so I’m curious how this may resonate with us. Thanks!”

Anna, I wish to thanks a lot for this query. I will probably be sincere, I virtually by no means work with Chiron. So, I utterly missed the truth that it’s in an actual conjunction to the minute with the Solar and Moon at this upcoming eclipse. And that does strike me as being important certainly.

Now, one of many few occasions I persistently work with Chiron in a studying is when the person is popping 50, as a result of that’s roughly the age of the Chiron return, when it returns to the identical level it was in your delivery chart. Typically, it has resonance for issues akin to well being and I discovered it actually useful to make use of in these sorts of conditions.

Now, should you don’t know a lot about Chiron, it isn’t a planet. I consider it’s technically categorized as a minor planet. It initially was categorized as an asteroid. However lots of people do work with it and discover it very helpful.

Now Chiron is usually known as the Wounded Healer. And what I’ve at all times discovered a little bit maddening is that individuals have tended, I believe, to emphasise the woundedness of Chiron and never a lot the therapeutic half. Chiron in fable is a healer. He suffered a deep emotional wound. He was a toddler of assault and he was rejected by his dad and mom. And there was additionally a deep bodily wound. He was wounded within the thigh by an arrow from Heracles. And since Chiron was immortal, he couldn’t escape the ache by means of dying however he did discover inside each of his wounds the supply of inspiration and function. And he really grew to become an incredible instructor. So within the delivery chart, Chiron signifies ache, however extra importantly, ache as a supply of inspiration and function.

This function begins with understanding the ache. And I’d say if we haven’t begun the therapeutic a part of the method by the point of the Chiron return, then it is a time the place now we have a number of work to do. And if we’re farther alongside this therapeutic path, that is the time we actually need to embrace being the instructor.

The signal and home placement of Chiron in your delivery chart defines the form of those wounds. What I’ve discovered considerably appears to resonate with my shoppers with Chiron in Aries, who had been born roughly between March 1968 and March 1977 with a few gaps, is the sense of feeling ultimately unworthy of taking on house on this planet and placing your self and your individual targets first.

And that is in contradiction to our ordinary understanding of Aries. It’s an indication that goes far past feeling worthy. It simply merely by no means happens to Aries that it’s unfit, except Chiron or to some extent Saturn are current on this signal. This sort of wound may be particularly onerous to repair. As a result of all different sources of confidence derive from our fundamental sense of assurance that we’re okay and we need to be right here.

However keep in mind that Chiron was essentially the most completed of the centaurs. He was born half man and half horse. And a really, very sensible instructor, and thru sheer grit and a powerful sense of dedication and repair, he soldiered on by means of his ache and shared all of his qualities of brilliance with others.

Everyone’s Chiron signal appears onerous to repair, to them. It’s a little bit like Saturn. My very own Chiron placement is fairly depressing, particularly in synastry, when another person’s planets come along with my Chiron; inevitably, there may be some sort of ache that’s brought on. However now we have to have religion that not solely can we dwell with our ache, however that we may be instructed by it, after which we might use it to assist and instruct others who’ve the same ache.

As for this eclipse level sitting exactly along with transiting Chiron, I consider that the aim of eclipses is to shake us up. It’s the cosmic equal of shaking up a can of soda, and you understand while you flick the tab, there’s going to be one thing of a small explosion. On this case, Chiron goes to get a number of the overflow from that explosion.

However take into account this. This eclipse is in a conjunction with the North Node of the Moon. And eclipses that occur on the Moon’s North Node, in the end, are shaking us up with the aim of pointing us in the best path. And possibly that comes by means of exploring our pioneering aspect, our brave aspect.

The Aries aspect that refuses to be held again and that by doing this, that’s how we acquire a way of power within the constructive ego and the conviction that, as Saturday Night time Stay’s Stuart Smalley used to say, “We’re adequate, we’re good sufficient, and doggone it, folks like us!”

Hold your eye and your creativeness on the Sabian image for this eclipse diploma, and it’s Chiron’s diploma, too: A younger lady feeding birds in winter, and in that chilly and darkish and wintry setting of Chiron on this signal, its ache, its studying, and its instructing lie in kindness and selfless giving.

Anna, thanks a lot to your query, and warmest needs to you at this eclipse time and to your Chiron return!
