Where are you heading on your path? The Lunar Eclipse occurred 2 weeks ago and the Grand Cross became exact again on April 23, 2014. The planets and signs involved were Pluto in Capricorn, Uranus in Aries, Jupiter in Cancer and Mars in Libra all at 13 degrees. That squaring of planets is helping to push you out of your rut and into motion again to let go of the past. Oh no, not that again. You say you like the past. It’s ok to ponder for the things you learned and maybe enjoyed. Why hold on? Let it go already. Eclipses are about releasing yet bring about new beginnings. Things present themselves differently. This upcoming New Moon Solar Eclipse is just one opportunity to help you release that which no longer is an important part of your life. Many things are changing and have moved out of the past even though you may fail to see this presently. There is still much darkness hovering around and the deceptive qualities of those who are walking in the darkness continue to seep through. And Sabian symbol says that it is a decorated Christmas tree. Speaks of keeping the Light shining no matter what negatives appear around you.
The NEW MOON Solar Eclipse in Taurus at 2:14am EDT on Tuesday, April 29, 2014 is at 8 degrees 52’. Those of you who have planets between 4 and 12 degrees of Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius will be more intensely affected. What does this New Moon say to you? Taurus is all about values. Taurus likes walking in nature and is very patient. Taurus until pushed will be quite accepting of all but pushed one step too far and that angry bull shows up. It happens only in extreme circumstances. Whatever you enjoy and appreciate is about Taurus. It can be mental, spiritual, physical or emotional. Where do you cling to something? Taurus tends to do that if out of balance. In your chart you can tell where this may happen. Tagore said,” Why did the flower fade? I clutched it to my heart in excess of feeling and crushed it. Why did the lamp go out? I shielded it with my cloak and it got no air.”
That is what this NEW MOON Solar Eclipse is about. Letting people and things go that no longer are a part of your life. The purpose has been served. Where it falls in your chart also indicates a place where you can be more productive beyond the material world. Are you fearful of losing loved ones or possessions? This New Moon leads you to be more established and secure on all planes of existence. A Taurus is very sensual in aspects of life. It likes the sensory world- to touch, to feel, to experience fully all that surrounds them. I think that is where the hugging the tree comes from. . How have you been holding up your ego? This is also a time of sacrificing your ego for something else. Openings come if you do this.
Mercury is conjunct the New Moon in Taurus and trines Pluto in Capricorn. This truly is about using words to heal. Yet many of you will be pulled into the mainstream news which is a form of conditioning and does work in a negative way. So words can be used many ways. Just watch for the brainwashing that comes out of the media which can flow so smoothly and affect you without you being aware. Put your good intentions out there now after the eclipse takes place. Mercury is helping you stay focused and without being overwhelmed. You may have brought back your power at the Grand Cross and also done some intention writing. This is the time to check on those intentions and use your imagination to bring them to you. With Neptune sextile (good) the New Moon there is a fantasy influence to this energy. Focus on being creative also since you may come up with a winner. Since Pluto is trine the New Moon Solar Eclipse it may also help you to transform your life through your values where it is in your chart without too much effort. If you are looking to improve your self-worth and need to release the negative, go for it now. It can be magical. Trust your gut feelings and watch who you choose as your guru these days.
In my own chart the New Moon is quincunx (inconjunct) to Neptune. I may find the opportunity to refine my higher vision and bring that truth to the world. Tells me to stop taking on too many things (Sun inconjunct Neptune). I cannot do everything for everyone. And It is worth waiting for if it is in line with my vision. Sun/Moon square Pluto is a time to purge old emotions and use it to create something which is powerful. Unusual concepts may arise and come to fruition. YAY!
This New Moon Solar Eclipse is connected to the Saros Cycle eclipses of 1995. What were you doing back then 19 years ago and where were you on your path? Are there any similar occurrences going on in your life? The energy of the Solar Eclipse will travel through much of the summer. A door may open in that timeframe and you may recognize it only if you pay attention. This can be a big kickstart for a new direction. Some relationships may have closed a chapter yet now are opening to deeper intimacy and true connection with material support. Integrity is very important here too! It is time to go beyond the before and be in the now. The old you has gone and whatever pain is still lingering and old wounds kept you stymied it is now time to let go and release them totally. Your power is waiting for you within. Detach and let go completely.
This is a Solar Eclipse New Moon about our stuff. What you own, desire, pine over and how it makes you feel. Whether it is a piece of art or an old porch; whether it is a stack of CDs that overtake your den or a comfy couch that everyone chooses to recline; that is your stuff. And what is it that makes you feel pleasure? That also is included in the mix. Jump into the senses because along with all the craziness of the other energies, this is who Taurus is. Endurance is the word and if you get bored with being in the moment, try it anyway. It may change your life.
Happy good luck to you on the path enjoying the moment. Many blessings and a big thank you to all who read this. Until again. Love, Jan
