The New Moon and Solar eclipse in earthy, sensual Taurus arrive at 4:28 PM EST this April 30th, bringing with it flash revelations and promises of change.
Since the eclipse is in an earth sign, it will also bring an opportunity to truly root into and build new awareness, project, or reality! Similarly, we must take the building part en serio. Taurus can help us focus this powerful energy on that long-term dream or purpose we’ve been nurturing!
If you’ve been hearing ominous information about the upcoming eclipse, remember that most of us are wary of change, and that’s what the eclipses are all about! We collectively and personally want change, yet we want to define the change we want, and life isn’t always that way. Get ready to get shaken and stirred; we promise you will be ok!
Eclipse season happens when the New Moons and Full Moons occur in the same zodiac signs as the North and South Nodes. A Lunar eclipse is when it happens with a full moon, and a Solar eclipse happens along with a new moon. In 2022, all four eclipses (two in Spring and two in the Fall) will be in the grounded earth sign of Taurus and the transformative water sign of Scorpio, who are opposites in the zodiac.
This year’s eclipse themes are all about managing our fears and emotions, leading to a deeper emotional intelligence.
Emotional intelligence is all about understanding, managing, and even controlling your own emotions with prudence, knowing how to cope with stress in a healthy way, and managing our interpersonal relationships with respect, honest communication, and empathy.
While some Taurus folks are all about practicality and comfort, there’s also the nature bruja connected to the elements and in touch with their body wisdom. Remember, you can be both practical and magical!
Nevertheless, this Taurean theme invites us to create more stability, build from our values, and explore more earthly pleasures while honoring our body’s wisdom!
The Power of the New Moon
The New Moon is a potent time for new beginnings and planting seeds of intention. Tapping into the energy of the new moon to integrate and manifest anew is paramount. If something is still missing or left wanting in your life, this New Moon eclipse may draw that nearer and fill the space in the upcoming months!
It’s better to call in our manifestations consciously because we’ve learned in school that nature abhors a vacuum, so llénalo con ganas! Take a moment on or before the 30th to breathe, connect with your long-term desires, and make sure to assess where you are now. Planting seeds for a dream you had ten years ago or even before the pandemic may just not be on point anymore.
Taurus, symbolized by the bull and the mythical creature Pegasus, is ruled by Venus (planet of love) and is noted for its calm, earthy, and embodied approach. This New Moon Taurus eclipse asks what you want to plant now; the person you are today. This can be an eye-opening and soul-inspiring exercise, so whip out your favorite pen and journal, breathe deeply, and state:
“It is now safe for me to accept and love myself as I am. I have changed, and life has changed. What does my current self-love, want, and desire? What is truly aligned for who I am now and who I am becoming?”
Imagine yourself like a powerful oak tree with roots that grow deep into Mother Earth/Pachamama, and allow yourself to breathe in this strength, resilience, and creative energy. What is your tree growing? More health, more love, the big career move or creation? Allow yourself to explore.
This exercise will give you a tremendous Taurus-powered foundation for growing wisely, and here is my sign-by-sign inspiration! Remember to read the Sun Sign and the Rising sign as well!
