Hybrid New Moon and Total Eclipse in Aries

April 20th, 2023

As this hybrid (second/ double) new moon is the second one we experience in Aries this month, the Aries Vibes are flowing with the vibrant intensity of it’s WARRIOR ENERGY AND FIRE ELEMENT: 


The zodiac sign of Aries is displayed as the bold, confident and determined ram, ever ready to go charging into the unknown with a wild sense of abandon and determination.

Double the Aries Energy = Double the Confidence, the bold attitude and the strong energetic drive to push forward toward your goals! 

Couple that energy with that of the total solar eclipse that is happening in conjunction right now, and you’ve got some real added power and force to make bigger moves, pivot through difficult transitions with greater ease and achieve those larger-than-life aspirations and opportunities that may initially appeared out of your reach. 

Actions and changes that have seemed untouchable or far away suddenly seem to be within arm’s reach, and if you just hold your breath, get uncomfortable and stretch yourself a little bit further into the unknown… life is going to light up like never before! 

Making big moves is definitely a strong theme at the moment… ending a relationship/ choosing to commit to a partnership, switching up your career, moving into a new home, the decision to start a family, a new business venture, etc… 

Energetically, at this time you may feel a very strong, intuitive sense to pull the trigger! 

But, do not let yourself forget that in order to live freely… to live fearlessly, we need to have a belief that we are on the right path. Some might call it faith. Some might call it surrender. Others might call it karma or flow. Our individual faith and/ or belief systems are entirely special and unique to us. They can take any shape, any form, any energy. In striving to cultivate a belief system of our own making, that we are being guided and supported by a:

Higher Consciousness/ Energy/Inner Guidance System

(whatever YOU yourself believe in that serves to bring you hope, guides your intuition and makes you feel connected to a Source larger than yourself – and one that binds you to The Universe, Mother Nature, and to all other Living Beings. To know that we are but a drop in the ocean of consciousness and life itself creates a special unity of support in something bigger, whatever that something might be.

***If you find yourself in deep exploration of what you believe in, we congratulate you as you journey towards finding a light in your heart that resonates with you.***

“From an astrological perspective, this new moon/solar eclipse is the universe’s way of sending you a clear message to be brave, take a leap of faith, and trust that there’s a net waiting to catch you.”

-Astrologer Korin Miller
