Eclipses mark times of cosmic redirection and energy shifts. Something that we’ve been working on, learning about or struggling with comes to an end at a lunar eclipse. Something we’ve imagined and dreamed about begins to manifest at a solar eclipse.
This Taurus solar eclipse on May 9 through 10 marks a new beginning, an especially fertile new beginning as it takes place in the astrological sign of manifestation. Taurus is the most earthy of Earth signs, marking a season of fertility and growth, of beauty and sensuality. It is the energy of building and making, of new possibilities and passions.
Solar eclipses mark the end of a 19-year cycle relating to the activities relevant to each astrological sign. A Taurus solar eclipse brings up issues of self-worth and values. Since this eclipse is near the South Node of the Moon, we might have to examine old value systems that no longer serve our lives. Do you honor the talents you have? Do you know what values stand at the center of your life? Take time to dig deep in the soils of Taurus and weed out any old negative behavior patterns entrenched there. Prepare the soil for new growth.
When we know our own worth, we can also access to the archetypal realm of Beauty, Desire and Fertility which is ruled by Venus/Aphrodite. Know what you value in this precious life we have, because why build something you don’t value? Looking back to May 1994, what were you beginning to build into your life? Have you manifested it? If so, what is the next step in the dance of your life? Plant the seed of that new desire during this potent new Moon.
Until next time,
