What You Can Expect From The Aries Solar Eclipse, Based On Your Zodiac Sign

Eclipse season is in full swing for the zodiac signs, and it’s time to take notice!

On April 8th, 2024, at 2:21 PM (EST), we will experience a New Moon Solar Eclipse in the sign of Aries. A few weeks ago, on March 25th, the Libra Full Moon Lunar Eclipse kicked off the most recent chapter of the 2024 Eclipse season, and now this Solar Eclipse is asking for our attention again!

Aries is a sign associated with ambition, boldness, and a bit of impulsivity. New Moons signify beginnings and mark a new chapter for us—solar Eclipses only intensify this energy. During Eclipses, the energy is powerful and can even feel unstable at times, making it a time to sit back and be aware of the lessons and themes coming to us rather than trying to manifest what we think we want. 

Check out your signs below (Sun and Rising!) to see what you can expect from the Solar Eclipse in Aries!


The Solar Eclipse is taking place in your 1st House of Self and Identity—it’s all about you right now, Aries! You may feel more empowered to step into the version of yourself you’ve been dreaming of or ready to embrace yourself in ways you previously haven’t. Of course, this involves taking accountability for your actions and the way you move in the world around you, but it also involves setting aside the self-doubt and beliefs that you aren’t enough. You may feel yourself releasing the expectations placed on you by others, as well as guilt or shame around not fitting into a particular “mold” in society. You know who you are; it’s time to stop hiding it!


This Solar Eclipse occurring in your 12th House of Isolation and Subconscious brings up plenty of emotions for you, Taurus. The energy here may feel intense and powerful as you face the patterns or issues you’ve repressed. Sometimes, your impulsive, ambitious side can feel out of place, and you want to push it further down, but truthfully, it’s time to learn how to use it in ways that heal instead of hurt. Naturally, with all the inner healing this period wants to bring, you may desire to isolate or rest and recharge more than usual—be sure to listen to that instinct and take care of your mental health. You are ready to come out the other side of this eclipse story a more fulfilled person, but uprooting and dealing with the buried emotions is part of the journey. 


As the Solar Eclipse appears in your 11th House of Friendships and Networking, you may prepare to release roadblocks keeping you from your goals, Gemini. You may find that certain connections are illuminated or new ones are showing up in your life that can help you get where you want to go—but you may also become aware of the people who are intentionally trying to hold you back from your fullest potential. Keeping your eyes open is your best friend during this period. If you have been trying to deal with things alone, you may also find yourself appreciating communities and social support in ways you’ve overlooked. It takes a village, and it’s time to embrace yours.


As the Solar Eclipse occurs in your 10th House of Career and Public Image, you’re ready to show the rest of the world who you are, Cancer. This period could mark transitions into higher positions of authority or recognition for your hard work and achievements—though likely in unexpected ways. You may also be rethinking your approach to some long-term goals and shedding societal expectations of what you should be doing in life. You know what you want to do, so be open to opportunities to make it happen. 


As the Solar Eclipse appears in your 9th House of Travel, Higher Education, and Philosophy, you’re determined to expand now more than ever, Leo. The possibilities feel wide open, and you’re more aware of what is holding you back than usual. The desire to stay true to your beliefs and convictions feels essential, though you may gain some new perspectives. The doorway to opportunities that push you toward growth, such as traveling or going back to school, may show up, and they are worth paying attention to. What will you do when you stop trying to limit yourself? It’s time to find out. 


The Solar Eclipse is occurring in your 8th House of Intimacy and Shared Resources, and you may feel more vulnerable now than ever, Virgo. Allowing yourself to be connected to others in significant ways can be terrifying, but facing your fears and insecurities around these themes is an important step for you. Digging deep into your past and working towards healing involves the reminder that doing everything alone doesn’t serve you—where would you be if you were more open to letting others fully see you?


As the Solar Eclipse appears in your 7th House of Partnerships, Libra, you are diving into a new chapter surrounding relationships. This period could mark an introduction to a new person who helps you recognize what you want and need in your relationships, or you could see a current person in your life differently. You may need to confront your previous habits and how you deny yourself (and others) when in personal relationships. If you’re single, putting yourself out there could bring you closer to meeting someone new. If you’re partnered, you may need to address relationship dynamics that aren’t in your best interest and work through them. Either way, it’s time to do some relationship inventory. 


With the Solar Eclipse in your 6th House of Habits, Routines, and Wellness, Scorpio, it’s time to address how you approach your daily life. Your priorities may need an overhaul, especially if you’ve been running yourself ragged and taking on too much. It’s easy to get comfortable with the same routines, but are they helping you live a healthier life and create a balance between your wants and needs? You may be surprised by what happens when you’re open to shifting things around rather than digging your heels in and insisting you can handle everything on your own.


As the Solar Eclipse appears in your 5th House of Creativity and Romance, it’s time to ask yourself what brings you joy, Sagittarius? You could feel more adventurous or open to new possibilities in your romantic connections, particularly in new ways to have fun and explore new desires together. You could also feel a stronger urge to create and express yourself; opportunities to bring these ideas to life could show up quickly during this time. What are you willing to pursue when you aren’t worrying about what others think? 


With the Solar Eclipse in your 4th House of Home and Roots, your sense of comfort and stability is getting revamped, Capricorn. In a tangible sense, you may be looking towards making significant changes in your home—moving, having a new person move in, or major home renovations could all be on the table. In an emotional sense, you may need to face the ways your childhood impacted your ability to feel secure and safe in your home environment or the familial patterns that need to be broken so you can determine what these things mean to you. 


This Solar Eclipse is occurring in your 3rd House of Communication and Local Community, and you’re ready to speak your mind, Aquarius. You’ve likely been sitting on some ideas and thoughts you’ve wanted to share more broadly, and now this period opens the door for you to do so. It’s not always easy to get your point across, so having conversations with close confidantes first may help you figure out the best methods to express yourself. You may also value your local friends or close family (such as siblings or cousins) more than usual, as they know you well and provide the support you need. 


With the Solar Eclipse happening in your 2nd House of Income and Values, your finances are the focus, Pisces. If you’ve been struggling with securing new streams of income, you may discover innovative ways to do so. You could also notice ways you could adjust your budget so that you’re not overspending, bringing you some much-needed peace. You may also feel more aligned with your values and see your worth in a brand new light—it’s not wrong to believe your skills and abilities matter.
