Eclipses are powerful cosmic events that are believed to help us process our emotions and embark on new phases of life. In 2024, we’ll experience four eclipses, all of which could drive us closer to our destinies — if we’re willing to look inward and confront what no longer serves us. 

The first significant lunation of the year occurs on March 25, as the emotion-ruling moon opposes the ego-ruling sun, creating a penumbral lunar eclipse in diplomatic Libra. This powerful event could illuminate how leaning into our selfish habits, competitiveness and impatience can sour even the most harmonious connections. Use this as an opportunity to re-evaluate how you’ve been showing up in your relationships.  

Then, prepare to take the reins when the first solar eclipse of 2024 arrives on April 8. As the spirit-driving sun conjuncts the empathetic moon in courageous Aries, we’ll be given the tools to recognize and claim what we need to truly thrive. Epiphanies and surprises could also crop up, blessing us with empowering wisdom — just make sure you employ this newfound knowledge so you can continue to evolve and grow.  

During the lunar eclipse in intuitive Pisces on Sept. 17/18 (depending on your time zone), we’ll be asked to really tune in to how our feelings affect our actions. In this moment, the instinct-ruling moon will oppose the consciousness-driving sun, allowing us to see the world as it truly is. Try to channel these insights into making some concrete changes to the way that you operate in your day-to-day life. 

The final solar eclipse of the year will arrive on Oct. 2 as the proud sun and mood-ruling moon conjunct in balanced Libra. This lunation could make it feel like we’re wobbling on a razor’s edge as we seek to please everyone and follow the rules without being pushed around. Do your best to confront your problems head-on in this moment and stand up for what you believe in without giving away too much of your power.
