Solar Eclipse Forecast April 29, 2014

Todays Vedic Astrology Podcast

Release Date: 04/28/2014

On April 29 the Sun will be eclipsed in Aries by the South Node. The eclipsed Sun is exalted in Aries, setting a very high standard of personal power and and vision. The exalted Sun is opposed by an exalted Saturn in Libra. 

On Tuesday the Solar eclipse in Aries will intensify the recent polarity between the powerful individual within (Aries) and the need to share it with others (Libra) and with higher, social causes.

These issues have been front and center since the end of 2011 when Saturn moved into Libra. Personally and culturally we have been working on getting along better with each other since then. Also, since the beginning of 2013, since the nodes entered the Aries/Libra axis, the eclipses have drawing out this contrast. In particular the solar eclipses, which have been occurring with an exalted sun and an exalted Saturn.

We need to connect with the true source of power within, that which is connected to a cause bigger than our smaller self/ego. This is the true Sun, the true light within. This light is not based on outer forms, wavering confidence, or measured against its shadow.  If we are  emanating our true light into the world, now is a great time to step it up – trust your gut and move. However, wherever we are playing small, and acting through our wavering confidence and shadow, there will be suffering and self-doubt.

Nakshatra Bharani

The eclipse is happening in Bharani Nakshatra, the star of restraint. This star is ruled by the God Yama, the god who takes the soul to its resting place. This section of sky shows the consequences of our impulsive actions and the need to exercise restraint, or suffer the consequences. There may be some heavy consequences and revelations come to light to those who have not been honest.

Mercury / Mars Exchange

Mercury is in Mars’ Sign and Mars is in Mercury’s sign, showing an alliance between thoughts, words, ideas (Mercury) and actions.


4 Keys to the Eclipse:

1. Focus on Your inner vision, not your outer reputation or status

2. Walk away from anything not moving you toward that vision

3. Choose your words carefully

4. Put your principles into action – walk the talk
