New Moon in Aries will take place on April 20 and this day we will also have another important astrological phenomenon: a total Sun Eclipse in Aries. According to astrologists, this Eclipse will bring a total transformation in our lives, this means ending cycles and starting new ones. They might be related to situations or matters that we have experienced between 2018-2019: projects, goals and relationships.
It can also be the end of a healing process or the end of mental patterns that you had been working to live and manifest the life you desire. The influence of the first sign of the zodiac, Aries, also represents new beginnings, action and initiative. All these match perfectly with the symbolism of a New Moon, the lunar phase where the Moon is not visible, indicating a new beginning.
The time to set new intentions, start new projects and take bold steps towards achieving your goals. Since this Eclipse has great relevance on many levels -emotional, physical and mental- we will dedicate part of this month's post to analyze it in order to take advantage of the energy of this astrological event.

Something ends and something begins, it is a process that takes us to another stage of our lives.
You can experience it as an impulse to move physically -moving to another place- or you can feel it as a change and a movement on a mental, physical or emotional level. Maybe you have been feeling this transformative energy for a while now since the Eclipse effects can be noticed before they occur. So, this transformation can be related to the inner growth you may already be experiencing.

Something already changed or is about to change and it will take you to a new point in your life. You are moving to the next level of your consciousness.
All this journey is going to be wonderful but it can also be a deep and intense transformation, and sometimes changes might scare us. But don't worry! It is part of the evolution process that you have begun. Keep in mind that Aries's fire energy is vivid and powerful. This energy can be harnessed to achieve your goals with passion and enthusiasm, but it's important to channel it in a positive direction. Avoid being impulsive and take calculated risks.
