Happy Easter and Spring to Everyone! Happy Passover April 22!

The Big Eclipse April 8

This is a Total Solar Eclipse and in the United States there will not be another one until 2044! You will be able to view the eclipse anywhere in the United States but the path of totality stretches from Maine to Texas. Because I am a Cleveland native and started my astrology practice there many of you on this email list live in the greater Cleveland area so you will be able to view the eclipse in totality (remember to wear your protective glasses). Here is a list of states where totality occurs according to NASA: Texas, Ohio, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Indiana, Pennsylvania, New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine and small parts of Tennessee and Michigan.

In Cleveland, Ohio the eclipse will last for 3 minutes and 50 seconds and it will begin at 3:13 PM Eastern Daylight Time.

When a solar eclipse falls within 4 days of your birthday or 4 days and six months from your birthday, you experience some change in lifestyle. It can be a happy experience, like moving to a new house, or a more challenging experience depending on the rest of your chart. If you know your astrology chart then look for planets or points around 19 degrees or Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn. Birthdays when the Sun was in these degrees are January 8 -12, April 7-11, July 9-13 and October 10-14.

Planetary Activity

Mercury Retrogrades on April 1 at 27 Aries and turns direct on April 25 at 16 Aries, aligning with birthdays April 5 - 18 and October 8 - 21. Transportation, communication and paperwork errors are likely for all signs but more so for Gemini, Virgo, Libra and Aries or any of these signs rising in your chart.

Mars conjunct Saturn April 10 at 14 degrees Pisces. All Pisces have had added responsibility and a few setbacks with Saturn in Pisces. This alignment adds an extra amount of frustration and possible financial concerns for Pisces born March 3-7.

Jupiter conjunct Uranus April 20 at 21 degrees Taurus. If you are born from May 10 -14 this conjunction will occur on your Sun which could bring an unexpected event that results in an awakening and greater awareness of your life's direction. The event could happen weeks before or after April 20. For some Taurus folks, it can be quite lucky, it all depends on the rest of your chart.

Jupiter enters Gemini on May 25 and remains in the chatty, youthful sign until June of 2025 when it enters the family sign of Cancer. Jupiter is the planet of luck, good fortune and opportunity. Anyone who is a Gemini or has planets placed in Gemini should have new, fortunate experiences in 2024 providing the rest of the chart concurs.

Mars retrogrades this year on December 6 in the royal, magnanimous sign Leo (6 degrees) and does not move forward until February 23, 2025 at 17 degrees Cancer.
