On April 20, 2023 will occur a hybrid solar eclipse, that is to say that it will begin at 3:33 am Paris time as an annular eclipse, when the Moon passes between the Earth and the Sun and that the alignment is not perfect, forming a shadow ring on the solar. Then it will continue as a total eclipse, when the solar star is totally occulted by the lunar shadow, and it will end again as an annular eclipse. This phenomenon will begin in the south of the Indian Ocean, will pass over Australia, to finish in the intertropical zone of the Pacific. It will not be visible from our countries.
This eclipse, which will also be a new Moon, will occur in the sign of Aries and will have an effect that is traditionally said to last 10 years each time a lunation or planetary transit comes to reactivate it. Placed here at the end of the first sign of the zodiac, in square to Pluto in Aquarius, we can expect to be shaken up quite a bit, and in a lasting way. We will be « forced » by Pluto, generator of deep existential upheavals, to take our lives in hand and to make radical decisions that will affect not only our lives, but also those of our loved ones. We will be in search of freedom, of independence and will no longer put up with any hindrance, be it from society, from our employer, or from a love or family relationship that is too stifling. This will not fail to generate conflicts and misunderstandings, but this is undoubtedly the price to pay to be free and master of our lives.
Aries and Aquarius will be the signs most affected by this eclipse. The former may suddenly feel like making a complete change in their lives, much to the chagrin of their loved ones. They could also come into conflict with longtime friends or be in the grip of an unexpected and devastating love at first sight. The latter could have the idea of having a frank and decisive discussion with their spouse or employer and let their life take a new direction. Capricorns, Leos and Scorpios will have some difficulty accepting their partner’s independence and freedom. If they don’t succeed, a clash will be inevitable. For Taurus, it will be mainly the workplace that will be the seat of conflicts and clashes, following changes that they will have a hard time accepting. For Librans, a new love may suddenly challenge their current relationship. Cancerians will dream of a new life, a new job, a new place to live and may make decisions in this direction on a whim.
From the point of view of world astrology, this solar eclipse placed in the martial sign of Aries and in square to Pluto, planet of revolutions and also of destruction in Aquarius, could stir up military tensions already present in the world. This will be particularly the case in the areas of the globe where this eclipse will occur, we can think of the conflicts between China and the West concerning Taiwan, but also towards Russia which is traditionally an Aquarian country. Pluto is in analogy with plutonium and Uranus, ruler of Aquarius, in analogy with Uranium. The nuclear issue could then become more important. Note that for France this eclipse falls in the 1st house and Pluto, ruler of the 8th (crises) is in the 12th (trials, difficulties). It is therefore likely that there will be an intensification of revolt movements, which will become more radical, even to the point of wanting to overthrow the government.
