Hello Fantastic Astrology Friends,
We are about to enjoy an auspicious and magical Black New Moon Solar Eclipse in Taurus on Saturday April 30th 2022!
The Black Moon signifies a second New Moon within the same calendar month and an Eclipse happens when the Earth, Sun and Moon line up exactly in the Sky. During a Solar Eclipse the New Moon travels exactly between the Earth and Sun, thus covering the Sun either partially or fully. We won’t be able to see tomorrow’s Solar Eclipse here in North America or Europe, but it will be seen in the southeast Pacific, southern South America, Antarctica and the Atlantic.
Eclipses are very powerful times globally for all, whether visible in the Sky, or not. Due to the alignment of our Heavenly Bodies, it is said that the veil is thin between the Worlds, karmic stories come in to play and drastic changes occur in peoples’ lives. Solar Eclipses always happen on New Moons, and the new moon is a signification of New Beginnings.
New Moon Solar Eclipse Chart for San Francisco, CA, April 30, 2022, 1:28 pm PST
Saturday’s Eclipse is happening at 10° Taurus thus we can look for the Taurean significations for where our New Seeds will be planted - with or without our focused attention. Taurus, the Bull, is a Fixed Earth sign, asking us to slooow down, ground ourselves, open our senses to the world around and tend our beautiful Mother Earth!
Taurus loves the good things in life: soft and silky comforts, rich foods and gourmet delicacies, beautiful art and sensual pleasures. It is easy to fall into indulgent consumption under Taurean influences. So, the question is: What new practices can you set into place, that will help combat Global Warming, excess shopping, unnecessary garbage and create better recycling practices..?
There is a saying:
“Even the smallest action is better than a big intention”
If we all just take on one new action to help our World, imagine what a difference it could make!! 🌍💕✨
And yes, it is totally okay to also enjoy the beautiful sensual delicious delights of our World. This Eclipse is a great time to set intentions for Self-Care, begin a new Music and Art endeavor or perhaps start a new Garden or Food project.
Depending on where Taurus and the Eclipse happens in your own Natal Astrological Chart and what other planets or important points are near 10° Taurus, there are definitely more specific implications of the Eclipse for each person individually. The Eclipse specifically engages all fixed Sun signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius) and with the conjunction to Uranus in Taurus, we can all expect the unexpected! ;)
The fortuitous energies are brought to an all-time high with the Taurean Solar Eclipse Ruler Venus being in an exact conjunction with Jupiter in Pisces at the very same time as the Eclipse! Imagine, both our benefic planets of our Solar System coming together in the Piscean sign of Compassion, Empathy and Healing. The Venus-Jupiter conjunction also makes a sextile to Pluto in Capricorn and a sextile to the North Node in Taurus, implying once again the beginning of new karmic stories! This truly could be a turning point for our World to start spinning the web of healing it so desperately needs. It is worth having hope, setting intentions, and beginning some new action to make things in our World better for all.
There is always more happening in our Celestial Heavens, but for now, I bid you fare well. Look for the next Alexandria Consulting Services Astro Blog coming up with info for the May 15th 2022 Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio…
