The new Moon solar eclipse in Taurus April 28 occurs within the womb of the Cardinal Grand cross and Neptune, Venus and Chiron creating a new story within the collective unconscious -- a story of longing for the gifts of love, peace, wisdom and compassion.

The word eclipse comes from the Greek work meaning "to leave out, fail or suffer". It is most closely associated with "a failure of the light". A solar eclipse occurs when the Sun and Moon and Earth align as the Moon passes between the Sun and the Earth, and the light of the Sun dims.

This disrupts the energy coming from the Sun and how it affects the web of lifehere on Earth, rebooting us with a new consciousness. A solar eclipse is an extra powerful new Moon, so plant your seeds with promises of a new connection to nature, to your body and to the interconnection with everyone here on Earth.

Change is always the key to eclipses. Watch to see what changes come your way -- even if they seem sudden, they’ve probably been building for some time now. Stay open to the mystery and allow it to happen. A new beginning is indeed upon us.

The eclipse occurs on Monday and Tuesday, April 28-29 at 11:14pm PDT. This is what is called an annular eclipse, when a narrow rind of the Sun is visible around the dark mass of the Moon. It is visible in Antarctica and the southern most parts of the East.

The Sabian symbol for the Sun and Moon at 9* Taurus is: Thousands of people dancing around a huge Christmas tree. This image combines both the spiritual promise of Winter Solstice, and the joy and pleasure of dancing around the May Pole at Beltane. It is a symbol of rituals that honor the Earth and its power to give us life as well as a gathering of like-minded people who share a common spiritual vision that honors the life-force. It symbolizes our basis human need for love, family, community, joy and celebration. The Christmas tree is a symbol of the Tree of Life -- a promise that the energy of life is still strong even in the darkest times. The decorations on the Tree symbolize our hopes and wishes and the lights we string upon the Tree symbolize the spiritual light of the world.

This is a great year to celebrate the power gate of Beltane (May 1-6), the old Celtic festival of the beginning of summer and the season of fertility. We dance around the May Pole to raise the twin masculine and feminine energies of life to weave them into new life for the year, both for the Earth and for ourselves. This year, go out and help our Mother Earth to regenerate us all!

Mercury joins this solar eclipse, helping us develop new ways of thinking about and working with our human nature and Earth’s natural landscapes. Patriarchy has been full of fear of nature -- especially women’s nature -- which led it to desecrate and destroy it. There is no reverence for our home when corporations control and destroy our environment. It’s time to take back our home. We can do this by re-connecting with Earth’s energy grid and listening to Nature to guide us in our next steps.

Neptune in Pisces sextiles this potent Taurus new Moon, bringing us many opportunities to use our imaginations to enhance our life. Neptune also connects us with Chiron and Venus in Pisces, adding healing and compassion to our interactions with others. Venus forms a creative, favorable trine with Saturn in Scorpio, helping us heal old relationship wounds through understanding and compassion.

May the beauty and joy of this season fill you with new visions for our common future.

Walk in the Light,

Cathy
