In case you didn’t know, we’re nearing one of the year’s most important astronomical events that will occur later this month. The first eclipse of 2023 is scheduled to occur on the 20th of April and aside from its astronomical significance, it’s bound to have a major impact on all the zodiac signs too.

An eclipse occurs when a celestial body is obscured by another. In this case, the moon passes between the sun and Earth and obscures the view of the sun from some parts of the planet. This solar eclipse will begin at 7:04 am and end at 12:29 pm and will be visible to some parts of Southeast Asia and Australia.

Solar eclipses occur on a new moon and hold huge astrological significance. It is considered a bad omen across many cultures, including Hindu mythology, ancient Greek culture, and even Korean and Vietnamese cultures. Needless to say, there are many things you should keep in mind during a solar eclipse.

What should you avoid during a solar eclipse?

It is generally advised that you should not start a new project during an eclipse. The same goes for starting any auspicious work, as it could mean negative things for its future. You should never look at the sun directly during an eclipse as it could damage your vision irreparably. Many experts also agree that cooking, eating, or drinking is not advisable during the eclipse. Many people believe that taking a bath after the eclipse can ward off the negative effects of the eclipse.

Which zodiac signs will get negatively affected during the eclipse?

As we mentioned earlier, a solar eclipse can have a huge impact on all 12 zodiac signs. However, there are four signs that will experience unfavourable and unpleasant effects of the solar eclipse on many aspects of their lives, including finances, health, and relationships.

It is said that if you’re living outside the shadow of the eclipse, the time frame of any activation can be from three days to three weeks. It depends on the planets, your sun sign, and any other aspect that could have been triggered by the eclipse.

So, here are the four signs that need to be cautious during the eclipse…

The first eclipse of the year is slated to take place in the sign of Aries, so it’s inevitable that people belonging to the sign will need to be extra cautious during this time. Aries people stand to experience tensions on the marital front. Some negative and unfortunate financial choices will cause stress that could result in health issues as well. Be mindful of your expenses during this time and try not to engage in any conflicts.


This eclipse will be extra hard on your mental and physical health, dear Taurus. Pay special attention to your expenses as any unnecessary splurges can cause huge financial losses. Exercising control is paramount. The same goes for your emotions and the way you react to stressful situations. Be in control of your emotions because if you lose your composure, it could lead to many more issues. A close family member’s health could also give you trouble during this time.

Be ready to face some unexpected challenges on the work front, Virgo. This eclipse will cause relationships with your colleagues to be a little strained for a while. Aside from this, you need to be cautious with your investments as financial stability doesn’t seem to be on the cards for you during this time. One way to offset these effects, according to experts, is to donate generously.


Avoid lending money to anyone or making any major financial commitments during this time, Libra. It’s very important that you focus on saving your funds. This could be a sensitive time to be around your partner, so do not engage in any conversation that could lead to an argument or fight as the outcome could be blown out of proportion. The issues at your workplace and with your relationship can cause stress-related health issues, so don’t forget to look after yourself.
