Tip of the Week:
May days are almost here. Astrologically, this means that the Sun enters the Virgo decan of Taurus. With Mercury newly in Gemini, this will amplify curiosity and intellectual exchange guided by a rigorous critical and analytical process on the social, global stage. With Venus entering Aries on May 2, the focus will also experience additional fire power. Mars in Pisces meanwhile could dampen the flames, yet this placement during Taurus time adds to the revolutionary impulse and resolve, one way or another.
The bigger story, however, is the Solar Eclipse that occurs on April 30 at 10 Taurus 28. Although technically a ‘Partial Eclipse’, it is still powerful and will have destiny-activating effects for us all, generally, and for those with planets and angles at this degree or within 2-3 degrees on either side, especially. Whether these will produce opportunistic or challenging influences is something that can only truly be determined on a case by case level. What we can be sure about is that its influence will be colored by 2 very ‘ambitious’ Fixed Stars: Schedir and Hamal.
Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
Balancing the inward pull with outer activities reflective of the season continues. In the bigger picture, this eclipse will have a direct impact on your financial affairs. It may prove wise to be extra prudent in this regard. The time is right to lie low, but perhaps also to do your homework. Expect to dig deep to get to the bottom of things.
Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)
Your ambitions will receive a big extra boost consequential to the power of this eclipse. It may even have the effect of spurring actions outside your usual norm and comfort zone, or that of others. Like a tidal wave with a deceptively powerful torque, your actions over the coming weeks and months stand to prove to carry a lot of weight.
Gemini (May 21 – Jun 21)
Your imagination is probably running extra strongly of late. The eclipse will have a big impact on you subconsciously, the domain of your imagination. Bringing it to the surface is certainly the theme of creative thinking, yet you will also have to make extra efforts not to be at its mercy. Make friends with your imagination by keeping it in close check.
Cancer (Jun 22 – Jul 22)
Fertilizing your sense of individuality implies giving it a boost. The extra fire-power of this eclipse will help you to do just that. Meanwhile, a reflective and contemplative mood is the perfect setting to nurture your dreams and visions. Meanwhile, deep changes continue to rumble both within and without and can be compared to shedding skins.
Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 23)
This eclipse will have a direct and strong impact on your career and social status, in general. It is quite possible that the results of it will be more positive for you than most, or at least could manifest as some good karma. Given the reputation of the fixed stars involved, this more positive theme is the exception.
Virgo (Aug 24 – Sep 22)
The double dose of the earth element will inspire you to be outside and to get your hands dirty. It’s more indirect influence will occur on relationship fronts and could also prove extra strong. The result could be mixed but generally leans to the positive. The challenging bit implies dealings with unreliable people, so stand ready to adapt proactively.
Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)
Financial realities are playing an extra strong role now. These are or will likely manifest as rather sudden changes of fortune. This process will likely have more than one episode and could flip-flop from positive to negative quite quickly, and the opposite is also true. So, remain grounded, reasonably detached and flexible, avoiding unnecessarily risky ventures.
Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
Sometimes love arrives unexpectedly, or leaves just as quickly. The reasons are many and mysterious as they are; they are all features of the probabilities of destiny. This eclipse certainly has the potential to produce such effects. Especially with the arrival end, take things extra slowly as you can and know better with whom you may become entangled.
Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
Creating beauty, comfort and atmosphere of your liking close to home may be proving to require more effort than imagined. Regardless, doing so is important. With the eclipse influencing your daily rhythm and routine, focusing to include an emphasis on health may prove extra important. Mercury in Gemini says ‘let’s talk about it’.
Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
As likely as is the inspirational influence of this eclipse, it could also be the source of drama in your life. This includes siblings, neighbors and/or children. Yet sometimes, the drama proves enriching and meaningful. Either way, the signs are that the game is afoot and matters will not prove boring. Be ready to lend assistance as necessary.
Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 19)
Adding to the already disruptive influence of Uranus stirring things up close to home these past many months, the eclipse will add its own super-boost. There are some positives indicated in the way of positive returns for good deeds committed in the past. However, it may still produce an unsettling effect and possibly even prompt a major move.
Pisces (Feb 20 – Mar 20)
The influence of Taurus closely aligns with your overall mode of perception. So, be ready for the results of this eclipse to have a measurable impact on your perspectives. It could well coincide with the pursuit of dreams and their realization. The urge to escape could also prove strong. Aim for the mystic’s posture of being in but not of the world, for best results.
