The first eclipse season of 2023 has arrived, and the influence of red-hot Mars is as prominent as ever. However, before we discuss how the total solar eclipse in Aries will affect each zodiac sign, it’s important to note that this solar eclipse in Aries will be the first of an eclipse series that will continue until March 2025. It’s also the first eclipse in Aries since September 2015, so be sure to check where this cardinal fire sign lives in your birth chart for more reference.

Eclipses can be intimidating for sure, but this typically stems from our fear of the unknown. Astrologically, they are considered powerful catalysts for change—both individually and at a collective level—as they usher in powerful new beginnings that could sometimes feel too abrupt for our liking. Nevertheless, their spiritual influence is equivalent to divine intervention because these “disruptions” and unexpected shakeups propel us toward our destiny in the long run.

Solar eclipses occur during a new moon—when the moon passes between the sun and Earth— but this isn’t your typical solar eclipse, as it is not only the second new moon of the astrological season but also what is considered to be a “hybrid solar eclipse,” which is a combination of an annular and total eclipse. This is also the second lunar cycle kicking off via the sign of Aries; the first started in March during the spring equinox. However, the consistency and momentum of energies continue to build strength, which should not be overlooked.

That said, April’s solar eclipse will occur on April 20 at 12:12 a.m. ET via 29 degrees of Aries. Assertive and audacious with its approach, Aries’ cardinal fires evoke strength, courage and determination. However, the dark side is that too much fire could be hostile, leading to impulsivity and rage. What’s even more intriguing is the first new moon in Aries was via zero degrees, and this one will be at 29. Both of these degrees are considered karmic points in astrology, which continues to validate the magnitude of these new beginnings.

The total solar eclipse in Aries takes place on April 20 at 12:12 a.m. ET.

Mars—which happens to be Aries’ ruling planet—is also transiting hypersensitive Cancer, where it’s said to be in its detriment. Here, the planet of assertion, action, energy, and war can’t move as fast as it would like to; it’s also prone to indirect behavior and emotional volatility. Having said that, Mars will be squaring off with Chiron—the wounded healer—during this eclipse, which continues to highlight the areas where we might’ve felt a void or a sense of vulnerability. This energy is ongoing, so it’s important to hold space for your past wounds and emotional needs.

April’s solar eclipse will also be at odds with powerhouse Pluto—after its recent ingress into Aquarius—which could bring light to everything from our sense of power to the individuals we aspire to become in the long run. If there’s anger attached to your eclipse story, try to take a step back and reflect on what is triggering this energy. Does this “outlook” align with your personal truth and/or the person you’re becoming?

Here’s what you can expect from the upcoming total solar eclipse in Aries, according to sun sign and/or rising sign (and seriously, you’re missing out if you don’t read these horoscopes for your rising sign):

Remember who you are! With Mars—the planetary ruler of this eclipse—supercharging your fourth house of home, family, and emotional foundations, it’s natural for you to be in your feelings, but you’re so much stronger than you realize. This solar eclipse is not only the second new moon in your sign this season but also a powerful portal of energy you’re about to walk through, and work with between now and 2025. Have faith in yourself, and be the leader you’re destined to be. Pluto will challenge this solar eclipse in your sign, but know that the rebirth you’re experiencing—personally and at a social level—is for your highest good. This new beginning is a blessing in disguise, as it is in close proximity to lucky Jupiter.

Themes of closure, healing, and surrender take precedence in the next six months, but deep down, you know something has already run its course, Taurus. For more reference, reflect on where your personal identity and/or individual autonomy are being compromised. With the eclipse’s ruler (Mars) at odds with the wounded healer, Chiron, there may be a sense of vulnerability regarding your siblings, peers, or local community. (Your communication style could also be more impulsive than usual.) Pluto will also challenge this eclipse—after its recent ingress into Aquarius—serving as a catalyst in your professional life and when regarding your sense of authority.

This is the second new moon in Aries, and a total solar eclipse charging up your 11th house of associations, community affairs, and sense of belonging in the world, this celestial event is kick-starting a brand-new chapter where you will not only take the initiative in society, but also make a name for yourself in the community. If you’re feeling a sense of vulnerability regarding your sense of security, it’s closely tied to the influence of Mars square Chiron, an ongoing theme you’re working with between now and 2025. Pluto is also challenging this eclipse after its debut in Aquarius, via your ninth house of expansion. A catalyst for your belief systems and long-term goals, venturing into the unknown brings you closer to your destiny.

Governed by Mars in your sign, while you have the upper hand regarding aggression, channeling this energy productively is easier said than done.

Do you dare to venture into the unknown, Leo? April’s total solar eclipse is bringing the heat, but the journey isn’t as easy as it looks. The good news is, there’s nothing you enjoy more than a challenge, and there’s no better time than now to confront your fear of the unknown. Governed by Mars in Cancer—via your 12th house of closure, dreams, inhibitions, and unconscious patterns—you are equally as emotional as you are defensive about the past, especially with Mars squaring off with the wounded healer, Chiron. You could be reminiscing a past wound or area of vulnerability, but this is an energy you’re healing and working with until 2025. Squaring Pluto in your Relationship sector, what may seem like a catastrophe or abrupt ending will liberate you in more ways than you realize.

Trust in the divine plan that is unfolding for you, Virgo. After all, with a solar eclipse charging up your intimate eighth house of mergers, joint ventures and shared resources, a disruption could shake up your foundation in ways you’re not expecting. Its ruler, Mars, continues to ignite your 11th house of community affairs, but it will simultaneously face off with the wounded healer, Chiron, emphasizing a core wound (perhaps regarding privacy or autonomy) you’re in the process of healing. Challenged by powerhouse Pluto in your sixth house of health, routines and acts of kindness, this is an opportunity for you to transform the dynamic of your contributions and service to others, as it will ultimately lead to your freedom and personal catharsis.

Your sign knows a thing or two about Relationships, but this eclipse takes it a step further. Hovering over your seventh house of compromise, commitment and significant others, there is an awakening taking place in your partnership sector, and you are being challenged to reflect on your sovereignty and freedom. Mars is the ruler of this eclipse, and it is still charging up your 10th house of authority, adding another layer to the mix. Whether it be an emotional tie to a family legacy, or your identity as a parental figure, it’s important to set firm boundaries for yourself (and the sake of your relationship) moving forward. The eclipse will also square off with Pluto, emphasizing a change of heart and/or desire for recognition.

Death and rebirth is your jam, Scorpio. April’s total solar eclipse is bringing a shakeup to your day-to-day routine, which could also serve as a much-needed detox for you and your spirit. Touching down on your responsible sixth house of due diligence while Mars—your ruler of the eclipse—continues to journey through Cancer, and your expansive ninth house of self-discovery. You may not have the “next steps” all figured out, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t a divine plan in motion. In the meantime, this is an opportunity for you to reflect on the dynamics of your upbringing and whether you still resonate with these belief systems. Going head-to-head with your modern ruler, Pluto, the dismantling of a personal unit brings you closer to your mental, physical, and spiritual wellbeing.

A heart chakra activation and renewal of self-expression, your inner child is shining through during this solar eclipse, Sagittarius. Supercharging your fifth house of authenticity and self-love—while its ruler stirs up your eighth house of intimate unions and shared resources—it’s important to reflect on the strength behind your desires and whether it’s stemming from an unconscious wound. Are these actions and musings authentic to you, or is there a past wound you’re overlooking? Mars will face off with the wounded healer, Chiron in your fifth house of happiness and children, emphasizing a vulnerability you’re in the process of healing. The eclipse will also square Pluto in your communication sector, bringing revelations and awareness to the shadow side of your inner circles, and local community.

It doesn’t get more personal than this solar eclipse, Capricorn. In addition to supercharging your fourth house of home, family matters and innermost feelings—kickstarting a powerful cycle and period of renewal until 2025—its ruler, Mars, continues to ignite your seventh house of compromise, partnerships, and significant others. And though this brings you back to your roots, a core wound could be influencing your relationship dynamics. This is especially true with Mars squaring Chiron; don’t undermine what comes up for review now. If you’re prone to defensiveness in your relationships, this is something to reflect on, as you are in the process of redefining your foundation. The eclipse will also be challenged by Pluto in Aquarius, highlighting the shadow side of your community values.

StyleCaster | Aquarius 2023 Horoscope

Design: Sasha Purdy / StyleCaster

Something is quenching your curiosity, and it’s leading you down a new path, Aquarius. Shaking up your immediate third house of communication, inner circles and local affairs—while its ruler, Mars, continues to trigger sixth house themes, such as your wellness habits and day-to-day affairs—it’s important to remain true to your autonomous desires and authenticity, while also tending to your responsibilities and duties. Mars is simultaneously squaring the wounded healer, Chiron, highlighting a vulnerability and/or past resentment in the process. However, after its recent debut in your sign, Pluto will challenge the eclipse which, in turn, brings light to the darker attributes of your “persona” and sense of self. Confronting these parts of yourself isn’t easy, but still necessary for your growth, and transformation.

StyleCaster | Pisces 2023 Horoscope

Design: Sasha Purdy / StyleCaster

Liberate yourself, and honor your unique individuality, Pisces. Supercharged with momentum and renewal, the solar eclipse will ignite your stability-seeking second house of finances and value systems, and all while its ruler, Mars, continues to energize your heart-centered fifth house of authenticity, recognition and self-expression. Are you confident in the pursuit of what inspires you? Mars will square off with the wounded healer, Chiron, highlighting a past wound or area of vulnerability regarding your sense of self-worth. Be kinder to your inner child, and hold space for the things that genuinely bring you joy. The eclipse will also face off with Pluto in Aquarius, which could simultaneously highlight the unconscious/darker side of your community affairs, and fixation on a sense of belonging.
