Taurus energy invites us to solidify the foundations of what we are building and move forward methodically. Practical matters are in focus. Venus rules the sign of the bull. Money matters, sensual pleasures, and physical comfort may be top of mind. This lunation is a solar eclipse; it’s a time of fated changes. We walk through a door, and when we look behind us, there is a wall. There is no going back.
This intense activation at 10º Taurus on April 30 at 1:27 pm PT is in my 11th house of friends, groups, hopes, and dreams. The luminaries are conjunct my 12º Taurus Sun, so my natal excitation is strong. I already see parts of the story. I am traveling back east to visit childhood friends—some who I have not seen in over 20 years. I am excited and nervous as I am not sure about the reaction to my being an astrologer. We shall see; I must be authentically myself.
Starting a membership community is on my vision board. This week, I signed up for a course so that I do it properly and in a sustainable way that brings you value. Stay tuned.
I am cautiously optimistic about what other things the universe has in store for me. Do you know your story? If not, check out the videos I created here.
The eclipse activates Uranus at 14º Taurus on a world point. Actions to fulfill desires for personal freedom and rebellion against constraints are likely to increase. Be prepared for "aha moments." Keep your journal handy to document unexpected and exciting insights. An event that receives worldwide attention is possible. Vladimir Putin’s escalating rhetoric about the possibility of Russia using nuclear weapons is unnerving and hopefully just saber-rattling. Around 600 B.C., a solar eclipse brought an abrupt halt to the Battle of Halys. The warring armies lay down their arms and declared a truce. It may be futile, but I will say a prayer for the Russian soldiers to do the same.
The U.S. government recently warned about a cyberattack. A storm, volcano eruption, earthquake, or other catastrophe is also possible. These incidents are all unlikely, but #girlscoutit. I suggest backing up all your data, keeping your gas tank at least ½ full, and having your emergency supplies ready in case.
There is debate over whether to manifest during eclipses. I personally set intentions, but the choice is yours. The energy is potentially unstable and chaotic.
