Everything You Need to Know About April’s New Moon Solar Eclipse

The new Moon in Aries is the perfect time to reset and set intentions, here's what you need to do.

It's happening again. We're about to experience the second solar eclipse of the year, and it's taking place on the April 8th. While the actual phenomenon may only last a few moments, its effects will reverberate globally, and this auspicious time is here to give us a fresh start.

This specific solar eclipse and new Moon will strike at the final degrees of Aries and is the perfect opportunity to reevaluate our lives. On Sunday 1st, mercury retrograde begins in the sign of Aries.

Here’s everything you need to know about April's new Moon in Aries solar eclipse.

What is a new moon solar eclipse?

On a new Moon solar eclipse, the Moon passes between the Sun and Earth, briefly obscuring its rays. Astrologically, new Moons in themselves symbolise fresh starts, so the stage is set for dramatic new beginnings, as a solar eclipse amplifies a new lunar cycle’s effects. New moons signal the end and start of a fresh lunar cycle. Each month the moon goes through eight phases of a lunar cycle, with a new Moon bookending these phases.

Each new Moon is synced up with a different zodiac sign and this specific new moon is in the sign of Aries – passionate, motivated, and confident leaders. This is the second new Moon of the year, with the former taking place one month ago.

What new Moon rituals should I do to manifest positive energy?

New Moons are a time for rejuvenation and manifestation representing the beginning of a new chapter. It's an exciting time to reflect on what is and isn't working in your life and reset is necessary. If you want to take advantage of the astrological event, consider the below:

1. Be creative

Let loose and be spontaneous by tapping into your creative side. Let down your barriers and explore a new hobby you’ve been contemplating — you never know, it might end up being your true career calling.

2. Give yourself a full self-care day

Lock in a complete 24 hours where you do nothing but things that make you feel fabulous. Draw yourself a bath, go for a long walk, binge-watch the latest shows and spend all day wearing your favourite sleepwear. You deserve it.

3. Reassess your social circle

Reassess your social circle by examining those you surround yourself with. Are they taking your ambitions seriously/are they supportive of your endeavours? Or are they making you question your self-worth? If it’s the latter, it might be time to make connections with new people.

4. Treat yourself to some flowers

Honeysuckles and thistles are aligned with the zodiac sign Aries. During this new Moon, treat yourself to a joyful bouquet and place them in your bedroom, living room or home office for a boost of good vibes and colour.

5. Start a vision board or write down your desires

Whether it's jumping on Pinterest or getting out images, photos, magazine cutouts, inspiring quotes and anything that speaks to or represents your goals. This will help you focus on what you really want to pursue going forward. Want to go a step further? Start a gratitude journal, too.

6. Try something new

It's an auspicious time for starting new projects, so if you’re feeling ambitious and want to channel the Aries energy of being action-oriented, now is the perfect time to try something new!
