The New Moon Solar Eclipse in Taurus asks you whether you are ready to move forward. Do you have a few things you wish to go back over before you proceed?
Today’s New Moon in Taurus is like finding a twenty dollar bill in the pair of paints you just pulled on. You haven’t desired them in a while but today, they just called to you. So it is with how you have been investing yourself in your projects. When you revisit the one that has been neglected, it gives you an unexpected reward. Take care to keep moving forward as this Solar Eclipse could cause you to hover in a standstill and there is no good reason to become stagnant.
I am not really sure when it happened but sometime long ago the image of Taurus became only a bull. You see originally the archetype of this lovely Venus ruled sign was a dancing girl riding on the back of a bull. The strength of the bull and the beauty of the rider are two complementary parts representing people born under the sign of Taurus from April 20/21 to May 21/22.
The New Moon in the sign of Taurus often creates a renewed sensuality and gives us opportunity to have more self-acceptance. Today’s New Moon eclipses the Sun signaling a need for the states of feeling and being to override the thinking and doing sides of our personalities. Taurus is the fixed earth sign and often seen as stubborn and a little intense. We must strive to be like the dancing girl rather than the charging bull and find our graceful balance.
Mercury, the communicator is in close conjunction to the Sun and Moon during today’s eclipse and is helping us to express ourselves more eloquently. Pluto, the planet of change and transformation is in the sign of Capricorn trining the lunar event. This favorable angle provides us just the little nudge we need to let go and grow. Also assisting is Neptune in his home sign of Pisces in a supportive sextile. This could bring a step in the direction of a spiritual epiphany. I suggest joining me for my upcoming Vak-Yoga Seminars to learn how to access the deep-trance state of meditation and transcend into this higher vibrational state of being.
May 2, Venus storms into Aries ready to spice things up. This Goddess is ready for action and gets everyone’s juices flowing. Desire heats up a craving to take risks, especially in the financial arena. Relationships in need of a jumpstart are destined to feel a much wanted jolt of energy.
Heady Mercury floats into one of his home signs of Gemini May 7. Study and communication benefit greatly from this necessary infusion of curiosity. Take advantage by pressing out beyond your boundaries and trying new ways of communicating. The only downside is going to the point of being too clever to be understood.
May 14 we have a Full Moon in Scorpio. Passions flare up as hidden truths are flung to the surface. There is no use trying to hide what is really going on. Just come out with it. The sooner it is on the table the easier it will be to perform damage control. Try to curb your spending appetite. If you must indulge in retail therapy be sure that you are purchasing long-lasting quality items. Forget the guilt trip—your happiness level is worth it.
After a long back-peddle through Libra, the sign of the scales, Mars turns direct May 19. All delayed activities are finally moving ahead once again. The progress picks up steam little by little, so be patient. The real turn-around is marked on July 25, so relax and ride it out.
The Sun moves into Gemini the sign of the twins May 20. The upside is that moods elevate and thoughts flow clearly when our minds are bathed with the light of this airy sign. The challenge is the mutability of the Twins and our difficulty in selecting and sticking with a choice.
Saturday, May 24 is a lucky day when expansive Jupiter in sensitive Cancer trines sturdy Saturn in powerful Scorpio. Outside resources become magically available and success is within our reach. This is a great day to pitch your new ideas, ask for loans and practice being on the receiving end.
The Solar Eclipse sets a tone for the coming six months. Be sure to get your ducks in a row and practice your pitch before taking it into the arena. I wish you a wondrous month of gain and growth and invite you to read on for my predictions for the 12 signs.
Aries March 19/20 to April 20/21
Turn your attention from career to home. The stronger the bond you create at this time the better. Love is hot in pursuit of you and it is difficult to stay focused on what really matters. You must throttle back a bit in spite of your desire to travel at break-neck speed. You finally feel like you are all caught up so take a little pause to recharge. This little breather helps you to make impeccable decisions. You are a natural born thrill-seeker but right now I forbid you to partake in any daredevil activities. If you want to push the boundaries and the limits try opening your heart and sharing what you are really feeling inside.
Taurus April 20/21 to May 21/22
Put the finishing touches on your current project and get it off your table and out the door. This gives the much needed space and time for you to enjoy a pleasure peak. Your self-esteem and confidence are at an all-time high. Go for everything that you have held back on as you can easily have it all including the salary increase, and love interest that had previously appeared just outside of your reach. Adding to the goodness is a magical windfall inspires a new type of investment that is sure to bring a great return. Think outside of the box. Shed your conservative outer shell and live a little.
Gemini May 21/22 to June 21/22
A hushed blanket of quiet is covering your world. There is no need to think that something is wrong. Just realize that this is a much needed time out. Really take advantage of it and avoid all social chatting, posting and texting. This is a prime time of spiritual growth. Immerse yourself in the peace and solitude. Create extra time for meditation and quiet contemplation. Dust off your journal and write what is in your heart. This is exactly what you need to help map out a great game plan for the year ahead.
Cancer June 22/23 to July 22/23
The opportunity to change the way you handle incoming business and contractual agreements is now. Seek out more comfortable choices and enlist the help of friends. Your new methods benefit everyone around you so figure out a way to work less and gain more. The only thing stopping you is your ability to believe in yourself so you must develop a new way of seeing yourself as deserving. To get things going, put some time into sorting through old things in the back of the closet and get rid of them. Every effort, no matter how great or how small, supports the successful new you.
Leo July 22/23 to August 23/24
Your love light is lit up and burning brightly. Adding to your charm, your gift of gab is at an all-time high. Put this to good use by joining in on group activities and connecting with new organizations. Push your creativity to the front burner and get back to work on that long neglected project. Keep scanning the horizon for new business opportunities and fresh new social connections. There is a good chance that these show up as a package deal. The more value you place on the highest good of all, the better your personal gain and your ability to provide for the ones you love.
Virgo August 23/24 to September 23/24
Various corners of life have thrown a variety of stressors on your path. You have no choice but to wade through each obstacle and tap into your skills. These bumps do not have to shatter and shock you but this depends on your ability to adapt. Change is indeed afoot. You cannot fight against it but if you do, you are sure to trap yourself. This only worsens the situation which in turn aggravates your system. Do all you can to negotiate through these challenges with grace. You have come a very long way. Feel proud and give eternal thanks. The outcome is a much needed financial turnaround.
Libra September 23/24 to October 23/24
Many offers are coming in so take a pause in order to sort through them. These new ideas demand a well thought out processing period. Exercise patience. You are voyaging into unknown territory and though you believe this is what you want, you must take time to educate yourself. Your closest contacts are about to give up on you. In order to meet everyone’s expectations and follow through you must use a heightened state of awareness. The more gratitude you show the more comes your way. It is as simple as that!
Scorpio October 23/24 to November 22/23
The fast pace you have been experiencing continues. Do what you can to find pockets of downtime so as to keep from burning yourself out and developing twitchy disturbances. Focus available energy on increasing credit limits and upping your financial status. This new standing comes in handy down the road. Offers and flirtatious opportunities come at you inviting you to the relationship arena. Are you ready to “suit up?” Words that have not been uttered for more than a decade drip like honey from your lips. You are ready to invite a lucky champion to the winner’s circle and on into your inner sanctum. Choose wisely.
Sagittarius November 22/23 to December 21/22
The door is wide open now so flash your wit and charm to the many that are ready to receive it. If you are wishing and wanting a partnership, a new one is rolling in. Those of you in relationships are about to take a major leap to the next level. Be sure to go out and strut your stuff with your delicious partner. Indulge in romance. Now is not the time to stay in. Many new styles and techniques are being offered to you. This educates you and gives you great opportunity to branch out beyond your usual comfort zone. There is no such thing as normal anymore!
Capricorn December 21/22 to January 20/21
Your recent level of attraction has risen exponentially. Before you make any moves it is very important to get crystal clear as to what you really want. Be sure to really think things out in the final evaluation before signing off on the agreement. Once you set this plan in motion there is no room for renegotiation. Many opportunities arise to grow your communication skills. Learn from all of your interactions so as to add to your repertoire of social skills. When you do finally float back to earth, dive head first into your work.
Aquarius January 20/21 to February 18/19
Love is in the air. The funny part of this is that your seemingly new found love has been right by you all along. Open up and see them through new eyes. An extremely high level of motivation has you wanting to spend extra time together but there is a twist. This is as likely to be a creative project as it is to be a fresh new relationship. As you learn about the true meaning of collaboration; turn all potential confrontations into opportunities. Sulking about is a waste of time and energy. You are not losing your independence so refocus and see this through the filters of new lenses.
Pisces February 18/19 to March 19/20
Home and family life are swept up in a wave of activity. Rather than getting dragged under and struggling for air—sink yourself into a long neglected creative project. Watch your stress levels closely and be mindful of limits so as to not over tax your system. Paranoia seeps in when you drop the idea that you are a powerful prosperity magnet. Find some friends to cheer you on with encouragement. An old flame drifts in with hopes of rekindling your previous affair. Be kind and pass them on to a friend who is looking. An even better idea: Host a recycling party. Remember: One man’s trash is another’s treasure!
