New Moon Eclipses bring about catalysts of change in our lives that eventually lead our souls along the path of alignment towards our highest expression of love in this lifetime.
During this New Moon Solar Eclipse in Taurus (April 30) a new energy arises from deep within the cosmos to give us a gentle nudge towards reaching our innermost desires. This may not necessarily be the most comfortable journey, but the north node in Taurus will make sure that we will eventually reach a state of comfort and worthiness that we couldn’t have possibly imagined from where we are right now.
The overwhelming Pisces energy during the time of this eclipse gives us a clue as to how to reach this place of pleasure and comfort. A major pathway to bring us towards aligning with the beautiful force of energy surrounding us is to focus on the present moment by bringing a quiet gratitude to each living experience. The sun washing through your window, the stars revealing themselves in the night sky, the earth buried beneath the pavement supporting each and every physical entity existing on its surface. Feel the ease in which the natural world exists around you and blow a kiss of quiet gratitude back into the infinite flow of the universe.
The sign of Pisces has been in the spotlight this month, particularly since the exact Jupiter Neptune conjunction on April 12 when the two planets shone a light of boundless love through the cosmic sky. These two power houses are still moving closely together through the sign of Pisces, so we are still encouraged to connect to our higher source of wisdom, our brightest light of joy and our inner most intuitive force that guides us in the direction of our truest desires.
During the Taurus Solar Eclipse, we will also have Venus conjunct Jupiter in the cosmic sky which carries with it a magic that can only be described as universal love for all that is and letting go of all that we cannot understand or control. This powerful energy allows us to step further into compassion and further away from worry, releasing anxiety to a higher power, acknowledging the beauty in all living things and trusting our source energy to open doors for us in the way of our souls greatest evolution.
Trust what you cannot see, trust in the magic.
That is the message of Venus conjunct Jupiter at the time of the New Moon Solar Eclipse. Be welcome to change, knowing that as long as you follow your joy and exude the most genuine feelings of love that reside within your energetic body, (and that means loving yourself enough to know when to say yes and when to say no) that the journey ahead will unfold, just as it should.
Layering on the expansive and comforting energies of Jupiter and Venus, Uranus will be in close conjunction with the Sun and the Moon at the time of the Eclipse; this adds another piece to the experience of our New Moon in Taurus.
Keep in mind, Uranus has been travelling through the sign of Taurus for some time now, so wherever Taurus exists in your personal astrological birth chart, you may have been feeling disruptive energies at work. At a collective level, Uranus brings about a general air of upheaval, uncertainty and a wave of innovation and change to propel us into a new way of being and perceiving the world.
Uranus in Taurus brings forward a radical new wave of experiencing freedom in our bodies, our skills and how we earn an income and build material wealth. Under this New Moon Solar Eclipse, we can receive unexpected waves of inspiration, opportunities that surprise us or be thrown, quite suddenly, in a new direction that can act as a catalyst for building the long term future of our dreams.
Quieten your mind and listen to the whispers of your soul. You have a powerful opportunity to take a small step forward, plant a small seed of intention or say yes to a small opening on your path, but don’t rush your decision.
This New Moon Solar Eclipse is about taking your time to understand how the changes in your life over the past few years have challenged you to move further and further out of your comfort zone. The Eclipse asks that you appreciate your journey over these years, realise your strength, your will power, your determination and your resilience in the face of the unexpected and take this next step with confidence, understanding your true values and desires.
The Pisces energy reminds you that you are supported, no matter what and with no question as to how, always loved and always held by the unconditional blessings that surround you. It’s up to you to trust in the love that you are and the love that you give.
Knowing this, use the opportunity of the Taurus New Moon Solar Eclipse to take your time and realize your potential. Understand your worthiness to achieve your deepest desires, say yes to opportunity that is in alignment with what you authentically value at your core and plant that small seed, knowing that over time, it will bloom, perhaps not today, not tomorrow, but eventually that seed will bloom larger than the dream you dream. Your manifested vision will radiate a love that is built on a strong foundation of your values, your self-worth, your inner peace and your infinite flow.
At this New Moon Solar Eclipse, plant a new seed with the intention to feel that bloom, take the time to evaluate your truest desires and say yes from your intuitive source energy. Take a peek through the window before you close it, that’s all this energy asks of you, allow opportunity in, feel the experience, and unpack the longevity and sustainability in the possibility before you make your decision.
Release the worry and have fun in opening yourself up to the magic of your life. That is the message of this New Moon Solar Eclipse, which sets the stage for the eclipse cycle over the next year through Taurus and Scorpio.
