April 16-22: Reconsidering and Realigning

The first eclipse of the astrological year is bringing change, purpose, clarity, and passion this week,

and the second Mercury retrograde is urging us to pause, think it through,

and realign before moving forward. We are urged to take it easy, enjoy each day,

and rediscover the wonder of our physical being as the Sun enters Taurus.

In addition to being the astrological highlight of the week,

this week's new Moon solar eclipse in Aries on April 20, 2023,

is also a significant theme of April and a major astrological event of the year, as eclipses always are.

When the Moon begins a new cycle, a solar eclipse occurs every six months.
