Uncover Deeper Layers

 

This week’s headline items: Mars changes signs from Pisces to Aries on Tuesday evening; the Balsamic Moon phase begins on Thursday morning; Mercury stations again, slowing down while still retrograde, and Eclipse season ends on Thursday; Venus changes signs from Aries to Taurus on Saturday late morning and Saturn’s station intensifies that day; Mars aligns with Jupiter in Aries on Sunday morning.

There will be three Moon VoC phases this week: Tuesday early evening (for a very brief 6 mins); Thursday very late evening (for 3 hours), and Sunday late morning (for a little over 3 hours).

Now, this week’s Forecast…

 

Monday, May 23rd:

Monday, the Moon remains in creative, sensitive Pisces all day. It will journey there until Tuesday early evening. This Moon placement often finds us more sensitive, intuitive, idealistic, and imaginative than normal. We also have a greater capacity for compassion, sympathy, and affection for all, especially those who suffer or can be regarded as the underdog.

But… that very idealism could also be our downfall at this time: We tend to see the best in everyone and everything, and when reality doesn’t match our idyllic vision, we might feel upset and even victimized by those harsh realities. A way out of this is to channel our idealism into spiritual or creative endeavors.

It’s also a great time for releasing fears — especially the ones based on a sense of separation — and experiencing “oneness”. Feelings tend to flow more freely; as best as you can, let them — in fact, “going with the flow” is the best way to go until Tuesday early evening.

Monday morning, an opportune Sun/Jupiter aspect becomes exact at 7:05am EDT. We started to feel this aspect build from last week, Friday evening (May 20th), and it will remain strong until Wednesday evening. We might want to take advantage of the opportunities this aspect provides — it’s an excellent time for following our own path and inspiring others to do the same — and for simply having fun and boosting our self-confidence. In fact, we may well feel particularly vital and confident — and inner optimism can bring rewards.

Humor can be a big part of this aspect too: We are able to laugh wholeheartedly, and see only possibility in our lives, especially around exploring our connections with others, exchanging information, and learning about ourselves; whether these explorations are long-term or short-term, they can bring about a healthy shift of attitude toward our personal goals and passions.

Imagine you have a special lens that shows you the “bigger picture”: What do your beliefs about yourself look like as you gaze through it?

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 0-5 degrees of Gemini, Aries, Aquarius, or Sagittarius? If so, you will be more aware of this opportunity. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Sagittarius (the Sun rules Leo; Jupiter is the ruler of Sagittarius). 

Monday very late evening, an opportune Mercury/Mars aspect becomes exact at 11:27pm EDT. We started to feel this aspect build from last Sunday evening (May 22nd) and it will remain strong until Wednesday evening. This aspect provides an opportunity to connect thought to action. Body and mind can align; words and deeds connect with ease. As with any opportunity, we have to “take” this one: it will not happen by itself.

Ask yourself: What actions call to me today? How are those actions connected to my personal values? Or to spiritual or creative endeavors that call for a practical approach?

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or any personal planets) in the following placements: 27-29 degrees of Taurus, Pisces, Capricorn, or Scorpio, or 0-2 degrees of Gemini, Aries, Aquarius, or Sagittarius? If so, you may be more aware of this opportunity. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Gemini, Virgo, or Aries (Mercury is the ruler of Gemini and Virgo; Mars rules Aries).

Now, this week’s Forecast…

Monday, May 16th:

Monday, the Moon remains in passionate, all-or-nothing Scorpio until 7:50am EDT; with this Moon placement, we feel things deeply and have “X-Ray Vision” and “Bullshit-Smelling Abilities” 😉

This Moon placement also started the build-up towards a powerful Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse, that will be exact today. Feel free to watch my Lunar Eclipse video or read my article on the subject here.

Monday very early morning, at 12:14am EDT, the Moon opposes the Sun (in 25 degrees of Scorpio/Taurus). The entrance of the Moon into Scorpio (on May 14th) began the energetic build-up towards this powerful Full Moon.

This powerful Full Moon is a Total Lunar Eclipse that can be viewed in the Central, Eastern, and European Times zones. The duration of totality lasts 85.5 minutes (= 1.5 hrs). This means that we will feel the influence of this Lunar Eclipse for 45 days.

This particular Lunar Eclipse is the second of two Eclipses within a two-week period; it offers an opportunity for a deeper, more authentic connection with ourselves and others. Our physical and emotional bodies strongly feel the intensity of it all, so keep in mind: Eclipses ultimately support a shift in consciousness and thus bring us closer to our Soul’s path.

During a Lunar Eclipse, the Full Moon slowly dims as it passes through the Earth’s shadow, stimulating our emotional body and increasing our awareness of unconscious patterns and fears. If you’d like to learn more, and as a Member of my online community, click here to watch my Lunar Eclipse video.

As you might know from my last Solar Eclipse video, Eclipses are always powerfully connected to the Moon Nodes and thus to our Soul’s Journey (both collectively and individually). The Moon Nodes remain in polarity for 18 months. They have been in Taurus-Scorpio since Jan. 18th, 2022, highlighting issues around emotional & physical stability, finance, and our relationship with our physical environment and natural resources.

The North Node in Taurus emphasizes the necessity of self-esteem and a healthy relationship with the physical world — with our bodies, resources, and the Earth. The South Node in Scorpio symbolizes our need to face our fears, heal old trauma, and own our power, so we can step into a more passionate relationship with life.

Eclipses reoccur in 19-year cycles. On May 15/16th, 2003, there was a Lunar Eclipse at 24º53’ Scorpio-Taurus, very close to the degree of this Eclipse. Ask yourself: What areas of my life needed to be addressed back then? Where am I being called to make major changes now?

All Eclipses transmit new energetic codes and transformative downloads, symbolized by the signs involved, in this case: The Moon in passionate, all-or-nothing Scorpio opposes the Sun in steady, peaceful Taurus.

There are several aspects worth mentioning in this Full Moon-Lunar Eclipse chart: a T-Square with Saturn in Aquarius as the Focus point, Pluto (the ruler of Scorpio), Mars (the co-ruler of Scorpio), and Neptune, all make harmonious aspects to the Eclipse polarity, Venus (the ruler of Taurus) aligns with Chiron in Aries, Mercury and Pluto are in their Retrograde motions, Jupiter is in 0º of Aries, and last but not least, Uranus, again, plays a big role in this Eclipse chart — and we will address all of them in a moment.

I should also mention that we focused on both Eclipses, as they relate to our own individual birth charts, in our recent Forecasting Forum “Eclipse season & Pluto Station, April-May 2022”: click here for more info or to purchase this webinar  — and feel free to re-listen to it, if you are already a Star Member — if you are at that Membership level, it was emailed to you on April 16th.

Since this Lunar Eclipse is almost a continuation of the last Lunar Eclipse in November of 2021, in 27º of Taurus-Scorpio, we can check to see how far we have come since then, when it comes to facing our fears and valuing ourselves and our authentic relationships to others. Ask yourself: What fears or inauthentic (or even toxic) relationships must I still release or transform if I am to step into greater abundance and happiness in my life?

For the next 45 days, we seek the balance and integration of two polarities and are aware that something needs to be brought into alignment; the balance in question is between our physical attachments, aversions, and connections — symbolized by Taurus— and our emotional attachments, aversions, and connections (Scorpio).

The time of the Lunar Eclipse brings greater awareness to what was unconscious or hidden previously. This particular one invites us to let go of fears or disempowering behaviors and thereby break through to the next level of our evolution, individually and collectively.

So, here’s this Eclipse’s central question: As a society, are we living in alignment with our values, with what makes us happy and satisfied? How about as individuals? Do we feel empowered and emotionally fulfilled? Are there any fears in our way to achieving progress? Or any rigid thought processes? All right, let’s look at the signs involved in this polarity,… To read the whole Lunar Eclipse article, and get all the Coaching questions, click here.

Because Eclipses are so powerful, they require a bigger orb than a regular Full or New Moon. I usually use a 5º orb instead of 2º… so since this Lunar Eclipse takes place in 25º of Scorpio…

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 20-29 degrees of Scorpio, Taurus, Leo, Aquarius, or 0 degrees of Sagittarius, Gemini, Virgo, or Pisces? If so, you are more affected by this month’s powerful Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo; the Moon rules Cancer). 

Monday early morning, at 5:28am EDT, we enter a Moon VoC, that will last for almost 2.5 hours, until 7:50am EDT. Use this intuitive time as an opportunity to focus on inner processes. As best as you can, release any fears or traumas that keep you stuck in the past, and deepen your connection to what you feel deeply passionate about out there in the world — you have an opportunity to become fully committed to a project or task now — something that might serve you long-term.

As always with a Moon VoC, as best as you can, don’t start anything brand-new, stick to routine things, or simply go with the flow. You may also want to plan Monday very early morning until morning ahead of time.

Monday morning, at 7:50am  EDT, the Moon moves into optimistic, adventurous, truth-seeking Sagittarius, where it will journey until Wednesday morning. We’re strongly motivated to explore and learn. We’re not likely to be big fans of routine — diversity and new adventures work best at this time — we’re also physically restless and need to burn that off with activity and physical exercise.

We tend to feel more open, optimistic, and inspired — but we also have a high degree of independence — and taking these two influences together, means we’d rather inspire others to do things our way, as opposed to issuing or obeying orders. Inspiring others could come easier than normal, as we can see the bigger picture, leaving us confident that others will agree with us, once they see what we see.

As best as you can, speak your truth without assuming that everyone is on the same page as you. Improvisation works well for us at this time, as we are spontaneous and love living on the edge — just watch out you aren’t overdoing or overstating things.

Jupiter in Aries 2022/23 – the article

On May 10th at 7:22pm EDT, Jupiter changed signs from creative, sensitive, and intuitive Pisces to independent, direct, fast-moving Aries. Its first pass through Aries will last until Oct. 28th, 2022. It will then journey again through Pisces until December of 2022; then Jupiter makes its second move into Aries on Dec. 20th, this time until May 16th, 2023.

In our individual natal chart, the position of Jupiter reveals how we express generosity and tolerance, and how we go about trusting others and improving our lives.

Ask yourself: Where do I look for wisdom and understanding? Where do I need movement and spaciousness? Where do I feel optimistic and have faith that things will turn out ok?

Jupiter represents the principle of expansion — it operates like a magnifying glass. It’s been in Pisces since mid-May, 2021 (with the exception of August until December 2021). During its time in Pisces, the magnifying glass was looking at creating more opportunities for (and through) spiritual or creative endeavors. We likely could also have felt a desire to contribute to life from a heart-centered place. This may have been an inner process for some, or an external process related to how we experience connecting with others — or around feeling interconnected with our fellow humans.

Jupiter in Aries, on the other hand, brings the magnifying lens to bear on our individual passions and goals. The opportunity now is to bring the enthusiastic energies of Jupiter to the fulfillment of our own desires — and to get excited about new paths and new projects.

This aspect also promotes a greater understanding of our potential to expand our passionate self and its goals — and fearlessly bring that energy to the world.

Again, Jupiter will be in Aries until Oct. 28th, 2022, and then will return to that sign from Dec. 20th, 2022, through May 16th, 2023. During these two periods, we attract good fortune when we are enthusiastic and direct, moving things forward with an optimistic attitude, and bringing inspirational fire to our interactions with others.

We value instant results and are motivated by competition, believing in ourselves and our ability to do it on our own; we are best served by enthusiasm and faith in the power of positivity.

We are each particularly invited to walk our own path and fearlessly explore new avenues that lead to new adventures. Possibilities are strong for tremendous creativity, self-expression, and recognition of our ability to positively influence our circumstances.

We also likely develop far more faith in ourselves. Adventures, self-growth, and athletic pursuits can all bring us great pleasure and a sense of rejuvenation. We are optimistic and generous — with strong morals.

Jupiter in Aries helps to create…

All this is especially true if you are a Sagittarius or Aries Sun- or Rising-sign. As a Sagittarius, you will feel a greater need for independence — let’s hope that doesn’t show up as running away from your relationships 🙂 As an Aries, you will most likely feel a greater sense of possibility, together with a need to grow and expand your passions, over the next year (i.e. until May 2023).

Where does Jupiter-in-Aries fall in your own birth chart? What aspects does it make during this transit? How does a wise response to one house support a more fruitful response to the next? What outward opportunities arise as Jupiter interacts with any of your personal planets? Where might you experience a major expansion between now and May 2023? Where are you ready to forge your own path and make a positive impact?

If you’d like more insight into those questions, we will cover Jupiter’s move through Aries in more detail in the next Forecasting Forum — so if you want to know how this planetary movement is impacting you personally, feel free to join us live on May 21st, or register for the mp4-video-presentation of the live event.

May 9th – 15th

Fearlessly Explore New Avenues

 

This week’s headline items: Mercury comes to a halt and begins its 3-week Retrograde phase in Gemini on Tuesday morning, and Jupiter changes signs from Pisces to Aries that evening. The Sun aligns with the North Node in Taurus very early on Friday, and Pluto ends its Station phase on Saturday.

There will be three Moon VoC phases this week: Monday morning (for a little over 10 hours); Wednesday night/Thursday very early morning (for 2.5 hours), and Saturday early morning (for 2.5 hours).

 

Before we get to this week’s forecast, please know:

Eclipse season continues until May 26th. If you are experiencing something difficult, or feel these Eclipses weighing on you, please do not hesitate to reach out for support! My Coaching-Healing sessions are great support for people who are going through a life transition or relationship issues. Here is a testimonial from someone I am currently coaching:

“I have been in psychotherapy, I have worked with a clinical psychologist, and spent years in educational classes for self-improvement. And yet, all these modalities failed to make the difference that Sonja’s coaching is making in my life. She gets me to the root causes blocking my path. And it doesn’t take years! Often it happens in one or two sessions.

She is an extremely powerful, sensitive listener and highly tuned to looking for what is behind what I am actually saying, then gently opening that up. I always leave our life coaching sessions with a profound sense of ease and a loving trust for life. Thank you, Sonja. Thank you! ” — Alan C. (May 2022)

 

Now, this week’s Forecast…

Monday, May 9th:

Monday, the Moon remains in fun and attention-loving Leo until 6:53pm EDT. With this placement, we may lack objectivity and struggle with backing down or compromising. We all love to be admired — or at the very least acknowledged — for our greatness 🙂

So hand out some compliments — let people know how proud you are of them, and tell them how much you love them. Come from the heart in this and all other things… be honest and authentic, as best you can. Fun, games, and romance are a big part of this energy as well. You might also enjoy spending time with little ones.

If there are no “outer children” around, how about getting in touch with your “inner child” — it’s definitely easier for the rest of the day. What are you most grateful for today? What would be heaps and heaps of fun? What would be so much fun that you let out a tiny squeak just thinking of it?

Monday morning, at 8:39am EDT, we enter a Moon VoC, that will last for a little over 10 hours, until 6:53pm EDT. Use this intuitive time to focus on making realistic choices and setting healthy boundaries when it comes to connecting with others; do your best to bring your most authentic, joyful Self to a cause or interactions with like-minded people.

As always with a Moon VoC, as best as you can, don’t start anything brand-new, stick to routine things, or simply go with the flow. You may also want to plan Monday morning until the evening ahead of time.

Monday evening, at 6:53pm EDT, the Moon moves into detail-oriented, practical Virgo, where it will journey until Thursday very early morning; turning our focus toward the practical and wholesome. We are generous with our time/services and we love to help others. We also have a fondness for science and anything that makes sense in our world — things and knowledge we can apply and use.

Health might also come into focus at this time. We notice the parts that make up the whole; this is a great time to see if our daily routines (eating, work, self-care, etc.) align with our long-term goals.

Powerful Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio — the article

On May 15/16th, at 12:14am EDTthe Moon opposes the Sun (in 25 degrees of Scorpio/Taurus). The entrance of the Moon into Scorpio (on May 14th) begins the energetic build-up towards this powerful Full Moon. If you are already a Member of my online community, feel free to watch my Lunar Eclipse video here

This powerful Full Moon is a Total Lunar Eclipse that can be viewed in the Central, Eastern, and European Times zones. The duration of totality lasts 85.5 minutes (= 1.5 hrs). This means that we will feel the influence of this Lunar Eclipse for 45 days.

Our Consciousness Expands

 

This week’s headline items: Venus changes signs from Pisces to Aries on Monday early afternoon; it is finally time to set our Solar Eclipse Intentions on Monday afternoon; Mercury begins its Station phase in Gemini on Tuesday, and its Station intensifies from Friday onwards; last but not least, the first Quarter Moon in Leo becomes exact on Sunday evening.

There will be three Moon VoC phases this week: Monday morning (for a brief 34 mins); Wednesday late afternoon (for 2.5 hours), and Saturday morning (for 1.5 hours).

 

Before we get to this week’s forecast, please know:

We are still in Eclipse season until May 26th. If you’re looking for guidance, I would suggest taking a look at your Natal Chart — the House placements of the Eclipses (10.5º of Taurus & 25º of Scorpio-Taurus) will indicate which areas of your life are the readiest to rise to a new level of consciousness.

Now, this week’s Forecast…

 

Monday, May 2nd:

Monday, the Moon remains in steady, peaceful Taurus until 6:47am EDT. We love all physical comforts, prefer consistency, and would rather stick with what we know works well. In other words: change is not our favorite thing and “rushing things” goes against our grain.

Monday early morning, at 6:13am EDT, we enter a brief Moon VoC, that will last only 34 minutes until 6:47am EDT. Use this short intuitive time as an opportunity to connect with others in a gentle, compassionate way, and enjoy a good meal, a glass of wine, a massage… think “physical pleasures”.

As always with a Moon VoC, as best as you can, don’t start anything brand-new, stick to routine things, or simply go with the flow. You may also want to plan Monday early morning ahead of time.

Monday at 6:47am EDT, the Moon moves into chatty, versatile Gemini, where it will journey until Wednesday evening. For the next two days, we like to learn, connect and interact as much as possible. “Busy” feels good: connecting online, on the phone, or sharing face-to-face, preferably multi-tasking all the way…

The one thing we can do without is boredom: If our mind is not engaged in some way, we might as well curl up and play dead 🙂

Monday at 12:10pm EDTVenus changes signs from intuitive, creative, dreamy Pisces to fast-paced, enthusiastic, active Aries, where it will journey until May 28th.

Until May 28th, we are going to feel passionate about connecting to others. We are ready to make a new start: if you are single, this could be a great chance to start something new (all things being equal). With Venus in Aries, spontaneity and independence are important to us. You’re not the only one who likes a challenge, so don’t make it too easy for others to win you over.

If you are already in a committed relationship, you get a wonderful chance to bring freshness and excitement to your bedroom and “other parts of the house” 😉 We also have more energy than usual; we are more likely to want to get out of the house and be active with others.

All this is especially true if you are a Taurus, Libra, or Aries Sun-sign or Rising-sign. As an Aries, beauty and love will enter your life during this time, you will feel more attractive and you will attract things to you. As a Taurus or Libra, you will feel more energized, passionate, and more than usually direct.

Monday from 4:28pm EDT on, it’s finally time to set our Solar Eclipse Intentions…. since we just had an Eclipse, we get to set some powerful intentions for the entire length of an Eclipse cycle — in other words, for the next 6 months!

Until 4:28pm EDT on Wednesday (May 4th) is the best and most potent time to do so!

Make them powerful: They cover the next six months. If possible, align them with the Taurus energy that I spoke about in my Solar Eclipse video — feel free to watch it again if you are not sure anymore — click here to watch my video.

While writing your intentionsask yourself: What would I need to add or subtract from my life to better experience it as peace, abundance, and radiant love? Might adding a daily dash of love, grace, and gratitude add to my joy on this physical journey? 

How might meditation or mindfulness — simply being present in the now-moment to all the energies inside and around me — support my enjoyment of life?

April 25th – May 1st

Listen to Your Intuition Carefully

 

This week’s headline items: Mercury enters its pre-shadow phase on Monday night/Tuesday very early morning, and the Balsamic Moon phase begins in Pisces on Tuesday evening; Pluto comes to a halt, starting its 5-month Retrograde phase on Friday afternoon, and Mercury changes signs from Taurus to Gemini on Friday evening; a powerful New Moon/Solar Eclipse in Taurus becomes exact on Saturday late afternoon; Mars at 12.5º of Pisces squares Dec. 4th’s Solar Eclipse degree on Sunday morning.

There will be three Moon VoC phases this week: Monday morning (until 6:15am EDT); Wednesday late morning (for 2.5 hours), and Friday early evening (for almost 2.5 hours)

 

Before we get to this week’s forecast, please know:

We are in Eclipse season until May 26th, so as best as you can, surrender any fears, and trust the process. If you find yourself “going down the rabbit hole”, please reach out for a session with Lia or me — we are happy to support you ==> Lia offers Readings (including 25-minute Readings), and of course, I offer a multitude of Readings.

If what you are experiencing is emotional in nature, please consider one or more Coaching-Healing sessions with me — this Eclipse season is an opportunity to process things from the past that have been long overdue.

 

Now, this week’s Forecast…

Monday, April 25th:

Monday, the Moon remains in freedom-loving, forward-thinking Aquarius and VoC until 6:15am EDT; at which time, the Moon moves into creative, sensitive Pisces, where it will journey until Wednesday early afternoon. This Moon placement often finds us more sensitive, intuitive, idealistic, and imaginative than normal. We also have a greater capacity for compassion, sympathy, and affection for all — but especially for those who suffer or can be regarded as the underdog.

But… that very idealism could also be our downfall at this time: We tend to see the best in everyone and everything, and when reality doesn’t match our idyllic vision, we might feel upset and even victimized by those harsh realities. A way out of this is to channel our idealism into spiritual or creative endeavors.

It’s also a great time for releasing fears — especially the ones based on a sense of separation — and experiencing “oneness”. Feelings tend to flow more freely; as best as you can, let them — in fact, “going with the flow” is the best way to go for the next couple of days.

Neptune is the ruler of Pisces — and it is currently in its own signmaking these next two days a great time to take a look at our inner spiritual connection to our “higher Self”, “Source”, “God/Goddess”.

It’s also a great time to allow all there is, as it is, and to go with the flow, following our intuitive voice as much as possible. We are being asked to tap into the “feminine” energies within ourselves so we can start to vibrate on a universal frequency.

Ask yourself: Is my “higher Self” asking for more introverted/inner love-time? If I tune in with my intuitive voice, what am I receiving? Sensing?

Where in my life have I become too disconnected from life? Love? God/Goddess? What is my connection to the spiritual realm? What about the “heart realm”? How could nature and/or animals teach me about those realms?

Do I need more downtime? More resting-time? More compassion? How might being kind to myself, and trusting the process of Life create a more loving connection with the universe?

Monday night/Tuesday very early morning around 2am EDT, Mercury enters its pre-Shadow phase when it reaches 26º of Taurus; this is two weeks prior to its Retrograde phase (which starts on May 10th at almost 5º of Gemini).

What is the Shadow phase? The period immediately before and after a planet’s Retrograde phase is referred to as the “Shadow phase”; at these times, the planet travels once more through the degrees of a sign (or signs) that it had already passed through before and during its Retrograde phase. Mercury is usually in its shadow for about two to three weeks prior to a retrograde, and for three to four weeks after.

If you want to buy, sell or ship big-ticket items — especially connected to transportation (cars, airline tickets, etc.) or communication devices (phone, computer, iPad, etc.) — be aware of the Shadow periods as well as the Retrograde phases. If possible, get these things done before Mercury enters its pre-Shadow or wait until after the post-Shadow phase is over — post-Shadow phase will end on June 18th (in this case 😉

Of course, if there is something that must get done during these phases, don’t put your whole life on hold, just because Mercury is Retrograde or in its Shadow. Sometimes things line up exactly at the right time; as best as you can, trust that it’s all “perfect” 😉

Solar Eclipse in Taurus — the article

On April 30th, at 4:28pm EDTa powerful New Moon/Solar Eclipse becomes exact in 10.5 degrees of TaurusSolar Eclipses are extra-powerful New Moons that take place approximately every 6 months — this is the first in 2022, and also the first Solar Eclipse in Taurus (in this particular Eclipse cycle that will be in effect until July 2023) you may also want to watch my Solar Eclipse video.

During a Solar Eclipse, the Moon momentarily interrupts the normal flow of Solar Radiation, destabilizing existing configurations of energy, and reorganizing consciousness to a higher level. Solar Eclipses indicate the beginning of a new experience, project, or cycle.

Eclipses usually come in pairs (Solar and Lunar), and “Eclipse seasons” start approximately 10 days before the first Eclipse of the pair, and continue through the second.

This particular Eclipse season began on April 20th, 10 days before the Solar Eclipse becomes exact, and it will end 10 days after the Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio that follows this Solar Eclipse (in other words, by May 26th, 2022).

While Eclipse season is underway, allow for new templates to download, stay centered, and do your best to ground from within — try using conscious breathing and conscious flexibility — and best of all, see if you can move to the “observer position” when it comes to the emotional and mental body. And remember, this won’t last forever: on May 26th, the downloads are complete 😉

Eclipses are a time for clarifying and affirming our highest path. We are bound to experience a release and recalibration of some sort — “old” codes will get deleted and new ones downloaded — and this is especially true in connection with our relationship to the physical world.

This begins with the relationship to ourselves, our body, our talents, whether we value ourselves enough to ask for our worth, whether we are able to say “No” to something that is not in alignment with our values or doesn’t honor our body. This helps us to be more aware of how much we love ourselves and our physical experience on this planet.

The Sun and Moon are connected to one of the Moon Nodes during an Eclipse, alternating between North and South Node Eclipses, emphasizing the evolutionary upgrades that are available to us during such times. This is the first North Node Solar Eclipse in Taurus since the Moon Nodes moved into the Taurus-Scorpio polarity on January 18th, 2022.

North Node Eclipses help us move towards a new exploration of an energy that promotes our Soul’s evolution. They ask us to focus on the energies of the sign involved in the Eclipse (Taurus, in this case) and work with the lighter/higher frequencies of those energies as much as possible. They highlight our ability for individual and collective growth and evolution.

Eclipses are crossroads or turning points along our Soul’s Journey. They are often marked by events or situations that signify a critical shift in our lives, nudging us to either change and grow, or face greater difficulties at the next turning point. In this case, the next turning point will be on August 2nd — when the Sun is in Leo squares this month’s Solar Eclipse degree.

Solar Eclipses, in particular, often correspond to major endings and beginnings. They occur close to the same degree every 19 years, and the last time we had a New Moon in this particular degree and sign while the North Node was traveling through Taurus was on May 1st, 2003. Although this was not yet an Eclipse because the North Node was too far away from the New Moon, by degree, this particular New Moon certainly started Eclipse Season that year.

We are likely to experience a resonance between now and that time — “resonance”, not repetition — so think back to the Spring of 2003, and ask yourself: Were there any major endings and beginnings? What was important to me back then? If I were to take those priorities to the next level, where would that next level find me?

If you’re looking for more guidance on those questions, I would suggest taking a look at your Natal Chart — the House placement of the Eclipse will indicate which area of life is the readiest to embrace abundance and rise to a new level of consciousness around self-worth and honoring the Self.

If you need some help with that exploration, feel free to click here and get my webinar: “Eclipse Season & Pluto Station April-May 2022”

Solar Eclipses are also a good time to go within and seed anything we would like to learn over the next 6 months — we’ll dig into this in more detail towards the end of this article when we talk about setting Solar Eclipse Intentions. Please note that setting Intentions for Solar Eclipses is different from a regular New Moon! So stayed tuned!

One major thing to note in this New Moon/Solar Eclipse chart: we have one planet in a very exalted state (Pluto in Capricorn starts its Retrograde phase the day before the Eclipse) and one planet conjunct the Eclipse (Uranus in Taurus) — both of those planets are…

Because Eclipses are so powerful, they require a bigger orb than a regular Full or New Moon. I usually use a 5º orb instead of 2º… so since this Solar Eclipse takes place in 10.5 degrees of Taurus:

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 5-16 degrees of Taurus, Scorpio, Leo or Aquarius?  If so, you may feel the effects of this New Moon more strongly; this is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo, the Moon rules Cancer)

Setting Intentions for a Solar Eclipse is a little different from the regular monthly New Moon process — after all, we are setting them for the whole 6-month Eclipse cycle, rather than just the next 28 days.

Solar Eclipse Intentions are best done 48 hours after the Eclipse becomes exact. We are downloading new templates at the time of an Eclipse, and the energies are quite intense, so we want to wait until it all settles down a little before setting our intentions — that said, we definitely do not want to set them during a Moon void of course.

Given all this, here are the best and most potent times to set your Intentions for this Solar Eclipse: Between 4:28pm, on May 2nd, and 4:28pm, on May 4th. Note that all times in this article are given in US Eastern Time — i.e., the New York time zone.

Set powerful intentions — remember, they cover the next six months — and if possible, align them with the Taurus energy!

If you live in a timezone other than EDT, and converting time zones isn’t your thing, I suggest joining my Facebook Fan-page and/or following me on Twitter, as I post reminders on those platforms when it’s time to set your intentions 😉
