The 2023 solar eclipses represent “male” aspects, while lunar eclipses represented “feminine” energies, so this ‘New Pink Moon’ eclipse would be all about action, it will force many of us to confront our shadow nature or the dark side of our personal subconscious.
Solar eclipses are also a sign from the universe that change will soon visit us on the Earth plane, and it can be unpredictable and unexpected change.
Change doesn’t always occur on the exact date of the eclipse. Sometimes it is weeks or months before or after the eclipse that something truly transformative happens, and often it is a big or life-changing event.
The power of solar eclipses normally lasts longer than lunar eclipses, but that doesn’t mean that lunar eclipses are less potent. In fact, they may be more potent in the short term. An eclipse can be connected to the original source of events, but sometimes it takes the power of another planet passing over the same spot for the effect to be fully realised or understood.
The eclipse will be appearing in Aries – a Fire sign, so motivation and inspiration will become a focus.
Challenges to emotional composure such as anger and irritability are also likely, this is the type of energy that encourages or pushes us to do something.
We may even act without much thought, so impulsivity can be a challenge, particularly for all Fire Signs – Aries, Leo and Sagittarius.
As hard as it might seem, it’s best to go with the flow rather than try to maintain the status quo. We are being made ready for change and there’s no point in trying to suppress inner realities. It could be uncomfortable initially but as time goes by, the changes will start to “bed in” and feelings of security will emerge again.
Aries is a Cardinal mode star sign, along with Cancer, Libra and Capricorn. Often these star signs are good at instigating new situations, events and relationships.
However, after a while when things are not quite as exciting, they can lose interest or reality sets in presenting normal life challenges to keep going.
This solar eclipse might really shake things up for these star signs. At these times, it’s helpful for these star signs to introduce new elements or themes to add motivation and interest.
The eclipse will reach full totality over Ningaloo, on the west coast about halfway between Perth and Broome, causing tourists to flock to Exmouth Gulf to catch the once-in-a-century sight.
WA’s last total solar eclipse was in 1974 but there’s usually only one every 100 years or so, or hundreds of years if limited to just one part of the state.
The eclipse will start at 11.27 am (1.27 pm AEST) on Thursday.
