Saturday’s Solar Eclipse in Taurus

“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where.
I love you straightfowardly, without complexities or pride;
so I love you for I know no other way… ” Pablo Neruda

“Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.” Goethe

Once when I was studying with a shamanic school out west, I called their office with some questions. The person who answered the phone couldn’t answer them so she went to find someone who could. When she returned she said,”I’m sorry, no one is here now. They all went up into the canyon for a ritual to celebrate the eclipse and they haven’t returned.”

Eclipses can be powerful in the personal evolutionary process and it is wise to honor these times with some kind of ritual or intention. Saturday’s New Moon Solar Eclipse , at 10 degrees of Taurus, is at 4:28PM EDT. It kicks off an eclipse cycle  which runs through late October.

There are no difficult aspects at this time. This opens doors into a desired future with greater ease. Uranus, the planet of the future and of the unexpected, is aligned favorably with the Sun, Moon and  Mars.

Uranus is the planet of awakening and if you have felt dormant in areas you feel passionate about, now is the time to awaken to a new sense of yourself that is ready to move forward in an energized and committed way. Uranus  aligning favorably with Mars brings a sense of excitement and adventure to new endeavors and more of a  willingness to take risks than usual.

Venus and Jupiter are conjunct- indicating good fortune for finances, love and pleasure.  And the eclipse is aligning favorably with the asteroid, Eros, ushering in an excellent time for love and romance.

Venus and Jupiter sextiling Pluto indicates a time that bodes well for personal transformation and growth.

It’s time for an adventure!

One of the Sabian symbols for this time is,”A woman sprinkling long rows of flowers.”
