How The April 30 Solar Eclipse Will Affect Fire Signs

If you're big on celestial events, you'll be very familiar with (and anxiously awaiting) each and every new moon and full moon that punctuates a moon cycle. These are prime times to tap into the power and energy of the magnificent moon in order to reflect on your life or manifest your goals. But, there's a far rarer event that certainly stirs up its own majestic power: a solar eclipse.

Well, you're in luck, because April 30, 2022's solar eclipse that coincides with the new moon means you're getting a double whammy. This partial solar eclipse is set to be visible from Antarctica, South America, and the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans, but you can also catch it online, according to A new moon carries its own astrological meaning, representing the beginning of a new moon cycle and the promise of a new chapter for you, a time to manifest how you want the upcoming cycle to go for you, per Bustle. Emotions are heightened, perception is amplified, and growth is blossoming.

A solar eclipse offers up its very own perplexities. Its magnificence is universally appreciated, but for those in tune with astrology, a solar eclipse means so much more than just a cool event to observe (or, rather, not observe directly).

Astrological meaning behind a solar eclipse

While you may be familiar with how to harness a new moon's energy, understanding how a solar eclipse can amplify it could be a game-changer for you. As with most majestic celestial events, there's a much deeper spiritual meaning behind these eclipses. Bustle explains how an eclipse can amplify the power of a full or new moon. In fact, it multiplies their effect. 

An eclipse ushers in the winds for change. Eclipses mean it's time to prepare yourself for a new beginning or the closing of a chapter, according to the New York Post. They carry the power of change and transformation, and if you tap into it, you can finally pursue that new chapter or endeavor you've been putting off. 

The zodiac sign in which an eclipse lands is of great importance, too. April 30's partial eclipse happens to fall in Taurus season, and will closely be followed by a full eclipse in Scorpio on May 16, according to Nylon. Taurus is all about owning who you are and being confident in your power, so embrace that energy during this eclipse. Of course, it isn't only important to understand the sign in which the eclipse falls, but also how it corresponds to your own zodiac sign. Let's examine how this eclipse will affect fire signs.

Leos, put on your boss boots

Leo (July 23 to August 22) kicks things off as one of the signs most affected by this partial eclipse. Allure explains that fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius) are likely to feel the power of this eclipse the most. For Leo, this eclipse also happens to land in your 10th house of career, so shine a spotlight on your job on April 30 (via PopSugar). Perhaps you've been meaning to make a big career move for a while now; tapping into the eclipse and new moon's powers of change make this the most promising time to just go for it. This could even apply to taking on a new role within your current job or trusting yourself to take on more responsibilities. Still, always remember that Leo should consider certain careers because some naturally fit your quirks. Now is simply time for growth. 

Furthermore, don't settle for less. Trust your abilities, and take a leap of faith in yourself. There's nothing worse than getting complacent in your career, and this celestial event promises to finally shake things up and push you right out of your comfort zone, Leo. After all, that's where all the magic (and money) could happen. 

Question your value, Aries

There are actually a few ways of interpreting what this partial eclipse could mean for you, Aries (March 21 to April 19). According to Glamour, the eclipse falls in your zone of value, and that works twofold. First, there's the obvious monetary value, meaning this eclipse is a great time for you to reflect on your sources of income and whether you feel good about them. Perhaps it's time to make some cuts and introduce some new revenue streams into your life, which may leave you feeling more fulfilled. 

But, sometimes it's not so much about money as it is about your inner values. Are you happy with how your life choices reflect what you consider to be your values? Reflect deeply, and perhaps you'll find the two coincide by urging you to find a new career path that represents what you stand for. This could also mean the value of money you already have, as it might be time to question your spending habits and hone in on your saving skills, per StyleCaster

It's time for Sagittarius to zen out

Don't worry, Sagittarius (November 22 to December 21). Unlike your fire sign friends, you won't have to deal with taking on the serious topic of finances. Instead, it's all about chilling for you during this partial eclipse. Woman & Home explains that this eclipse lands in your sixth house of health and wellness. That's right: You can use this celestial event as an excuse to finally take a breather. Do some meditation, bask in the full moonlight, and romanticize your life. After all, being an Aries could be affecting your mental health

Yoga can be a great relaxing activity to engage in on April 30 to tap into your health as well as your wellness. Reflect on bad habits that have been holding you back recently, and maybe even consider attempting that dreaded 5 a.m. morning routine to see if it leaves you feeling as good as everyone claims. Choose you, and choose anything that leaves you feeling like a refreshed, healthier you. StyleCaster suggests you put any energy you have into doing that deep spring clean you've been putting off; it's guaranteed to leave you feeling lighter, and a clean space always gives you some much-needed space in your mind as well.
