Astrological New Year and Aries Season Horoscopes March-April 2024

horoscopes march april 2024

The Astrological New Year begins on March 19, 2024, the same day as the Equinox. This is considered the start of the astrological new year, because in Western Astrology, the March Equinox always aligns with the start of Aries Season, and Aries being the first sign of the zodiac represents day one on our trip around the zodiac wheel.

As we welcome the beginning of a new astrological year, let’s take a look into what is ahead for your zodiac sign. You can read for your Sun Sign and Rising sign if you know it.

(Your rising sign was the zodiac on the horizon at the time of your birth. You will need to know your exact time of birth to locate your rising sign. You can learn more with my book, The Ultimate Guide to Astrology.)

Astrological New Year and Aries Season Horoscope March-April 2024


Welcome to your season! The Sun has moved into your sign of the zodiac and you will be feeling its warming rays on your skin. This would be a great time to celebrate, to start fresh, and to think about what you wish to achieve for the months ahead. Think of new inspirations or ideas that you can bring into your life. If you have a new business venture or want to start a new course or job, your season will be particularly favorable! You will want to act as close to March 19 as possible, as come April 1st, Mercury Retrograde begins. Mercury Retrograde is typically considered not a good time to start new things or to make long-term commitments. It is, however, a powerful time for going back over things and revisiting the past. So if you have a past project or idea that never saw the light of day, Mercury Retrograde will help you to revive it! When it comes to matters of the heart, you will want to pay attention to the Libra Lunar Eclipse on March 25th. This Lunar Eclipse will be making it clearer to you where you stand when it comes to a current relationship. You may have an awakening or realization that things can no longer continue how they have been. Eclipses tend to reveal things to us, so pay attention to what revelations or clues come your way. It is likely there will be a powerful message brought your way under this Eclipse. On April 8th, we have another Eclipse; this time, it’s a Solar Eclipse, and it’s in your sign! This is a powerful Eclipse to support new goals and dreams. It is also a great time for affirmation work. Your health may be on your mind under this Eclipse. This is a power day for healing and for sorting through any lingering health issues that need to be dealt with. If you have been struggling with some health issues, this Eclipse may also bring a positive turning point, helping you to begin a brighter new chapter.


Welcome to the start of the astrological new year! There is powerful energy on your side for new beginnings and to think about what seeds you wish to plant moving forward. But before you can navigate what is new, you may need to pay some extra attention to what needs to be cleared first. While all signs will feel this on some level, you are going to feel it more than most. While you may see and feel fresh new energy all around you, it will be important to take some time to clear away the muck and clutter before you can truly welcome this energy into your life. What needs to go? If that is not yet clear, think about what you want more of and then see what is aligned and what is no longer. You are the planner of the zodiac and your great earthy energy helps you to be methodical in your approach. If you are planting seeds, you need the right soil, and while it may take some extra time and effort to create the right environment, the rewards will be well worth it! The Libra Lunar Eclipse on March 25, is going to bring some information to light. This information may be hard to digest, but it is always better to know the truth. Whatever surfaces, know that more is likely to be revealed in the weeks that follow. April 8th also brings another Eclipse, but this time it is a Solar Eclipse in the sign of Aries. This Eclipse is the more powerful of the two and brings powerful inspiration into our lives. Whatever manifested at the end of March will feel much more manageable come this April Eclipse. You may even feel new inspiration flowing in, allowing you to make the most of whatever situation you are in.


Welcome to the start of the astrological new year! I am sure you have plenty of new ideas and inventions up your sleeve already! As you welcome this fresh energy and inspiration, take a moment to pause and celebrate how far you have come. Your mind is always moving a mile a minute, so slowing down can be a powerful practice and can help you recognize just how far you have come! On March 19, when we celebrate the Equinox, the energy grid of the planet moves into higher harmony, so soak up some of these harmonious vibrations and use them to balance your own energetic body. This will hold you in good stead for the weeks that follow for they are busy! On March 25th, we welcome the first Eclipse of the year, a Libra Full Moon Lunar Eclipse. This Eclipse is going to highlight the friendships in your life. You may find that a certain friendship has served its time in your life, or alternatively, you may be taking steps to partner up in business with a friend, or you may even find yourself falling for a friend in a romantic sense. If you are joining forces with a friend, be sure to make sure everything is clear, and you are both on the same page. Your ruling planet, Mercury, will be in retrograde, which means that miscommunications are more likely to occur. The same goes if you are having a conflict with a friend in your life. With a greater chance for miscommunications, you will have to work extra hard to make sure you are expressing yourself thoughtfully and being understood in the right way. Things may seem a little messy under this Eclipse but the Eclipse that follows on April 8th will help to clear the fog. This April 8th Eclipse is a Solar Eclipse in the sign of Aries. It is one of the most powerful cosmic events for 2024! This Eclipse is going to open a doorway for all of us into a new chapter. For you, this new chapter is likely to be in your creative life. A fantastic, life-changing opportunity may come your way, or you may give birth to an idea that is likely to be incredibly prosperous for you. If you are working on a creative project, use the energy behind this Eclipse to push things forward. The Universe will be on your side!


Welcome to the start of a new astrological year! The Sun is beginning a new journey around the zodiac wheel, and you may be feeling fresh inspiration and energy as a result. The March 19th Equinox is also a power time to set intentions and for manifestation work. Create a vision board or write down a list of goals and dreams. Use the power of your mind to visualize them all coming into your reality, and know the energies of the Equinox will be supporting you in this vision! The March 25th Libra Lunar Eclipse will begin our journey into the first Eclipse Season of the year. This Eclipse carries the theme of endings, and for you, this seems to be connected to your home and family life. You may be moving away, moving homes, or seeing changes to your family life. If you have experienced strained relations with a family member, this Eclipse may just bring the final straw. Alternatively, you may find that your role within your family dynamic is changing. Perhaps you have been doing too much or bending over backward to care for and support a family member; you may decide that you can no longer continue the way you have been and that things need to change. Whatever the manifestation, it seems that something is coming to an end, whether it be a habit, a conflict, or something more tangible like the moving or selling of a house. On April 1st, Mercury, the planet of communication and contracts, will station retrograde, so it will be important to look over any contracts or binding agreements very closely and to make sure you are communicating mindfully. Then, on April 8th we welcome a very powerful Solar Eclipse in the sign of Aries. This is one of the most powerful events of the year and will help to open doors that we never dreamed possible! This is going to be fantastic news for you when it comes to your career. Whatever dreams or aspirations you have with your career are going to feel very supported under this energy, so take action and stay open to what comes your way! A wonderful career opportunity may come your way on this day, too, so put your feelers out there in the lead-up to this Eclipse. Put your work on display or take a leap of faith when it comes to your career goals. If you don’t have any career goals or are retired, this energy will help fuel your feelings of purpose, allowing you to feel more centered and passionate about your day-to-day routine.


Welcome to the start of the astrological year! The Sun has moved into fiery Aries and this is going to bring a nice boost to your energy levels and your feelings of motivation! You are going to feel more empowered and more energized to start new projects and bring fresh energy into your life. Travel may even be on the agenda with a last-minute trip opportunity coming your way. This trip is likely to be life-changing in many positive ways, so if you can, jump on it! Alternatively, if you have been wanting to book a trip, this would be a good time to explore that option. Even taking a short vacation somewhere or visiting a new part of the city you live in would be a great way to channel some of this optimistic, explorer energy! Seeing new things and opening yourself to new experiences is always a great way to bring fresh inspiration and joy into your life. The Libra Lunar Eclipse on March 25 begins our gateway into Eclipse Season. This Eclipse holds the themes of endings, and for you, Leo, it seems that some heavy weight is being lifted. Perhaps you are wrapping up an important legal matter, or maybe you have been in talks or negotiations in regard to a project. It does seem that something logistical that has been taking up much of your brain space is coming to an end, and this will be a welcomed thing! Hopefully, you can feel the lightness that follows and use your mental energy for something more peaceful and joyous. On April 8th, there is another Eclipse; this time, it’s a Solar Eclipse in the sign of Aries. This Solar Eclipse is a powerful road opener that can help you forge new paths and start new chapters. The new beginning that enters your life may surprise you! So, stay open and see what the Universe sends your way.


Welcome to the start of the astrological year! You have been busy these last few months, so you may feel as if the year has already kicked into full swing! While life may be bustling around you, take a moment to pause as we celebrate the Equinox and New Year. Find some stillness and practice gratitude for the journey you have traveled. You tend to underestimate just how much you do and how accomplished you are, so make it a point to acknowledge and honor yourself! Perhaps even schedule time for some much-needed self-care. The Libra Lunar Eclipse on March 25th carries the theme of endings. Your finances are likely to be involved, so perhaps that is where you will be noticing the changes. Maybe a contract position comes to an end, or perhaps you are finally retiring or leaving your job. Alternatively, you may have to make some adjustments to how you have been spending. Perhaps it is not that some income comes to an end but rather a spending habit. It doesn’t have to be all negative, though; if you are saving for something, you may finally reach your goal, or perhaps you come into some new money that allows you to spend more freely. There are many possible manifestations, but it seems that money matters are going to be on your mind, and some adjustments are going to be made. The April Solar Eclipse that follows on the 8th brings the opportunity for new beginnings. If you have been dealing with some financial stresses, you could find the answers you seek under this Eclipse. This Solar Eclipse is also a good time to organize your finances and spending, or perhaps look into saving for your future. There is fantastic support on your side when it comes to this area of your life.


Welcome to the start of the astrological year! While the Sun is in Aries, you are going to be the star of the show, for we have a powerful Eclipse in your sign on March 25th.

Perhaps you have been on a healing journey for the last few years and are now starting to see the light. Or, perhaps you have been discovering new things about yourself and are finally just starting to peel back more layers to reveal a truer and more authentic self. Whatever the journey, it feels deeply personal so perhaps only you know what is being released from your life under this energy.

The Libra Lunar Eclipse on March 25th is going to clear a path for you. It seems you are doing a clearing under this Eclipse, especially on an emotional level. You may find yourself feeling an array of different emotions as you navigate this Eclipse energy, but essentially think of it as a purge moment where you are able to clear and cleanse from the inside out. Be prepared to feel lighter and more optimistic about what’s ahead. This clearing is going to be a positive step for you, and one that will help pave your way forward. Our inner world becomes a reflection of our outer world, so whatever inner clearing you do under this Eclipse will eventually start to project out to your outer world. The Solar Eclipse on April 8th is, in fact, a fantastic opportunity to put this into motion by setting intentions and taking action steps to better your life or shift in a new direction.
