Solar Eclipse New Moon in Taurus and Astrology Forecast April 27- May 3

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

The intensity continues this coming week as we experience energies gathering for the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Taurus on Tuesday April 29 at 2:14 AM EDT.

Additionally, the Cardinal Grand Cross continues to be in effect, though not as close to exact, as it was this last week. The Cardinal Cross stays pretty much in effect through the time when Mars Goes Direct on May 19.  The Cross then morphs into a still strong Cardinal T-Square going into July.

So forget about going back to “normal”- whatever that means anymore.

Our collective and individual default positions have shifted and therefore finding the same inner comfort zone may be challenging for some and for some time.

The Solar Eclipse New Moon in Taurus this week has the “intention” of taking what has been shaking up, taking whatever new is being born; and moving forward with it all in a grounded, palatable, and practical way.

In other words it is time to get more real and to concentrate on making things work.   The physical plane and the body need more attention now, and if like many others your body has been feeling the stresses of the planetary energies and intensities, then it is time to concentrate more on healing your body.  Find the connections between your psychological, emotional stresses and your body now.  One of the best ways to help facilitate this process in a Taurus way is to find grounding through what our senses find appealing.

That means being in nature, getting a massage, practicing yoga, eating tasty healthy meals, giving and getting more hugs, enjoying a comfortable home, and literally and metaphorically slowing down and smelling the roses of one’s life.

Life has been rather intense lately and so these more enjoyable Taurus ways to make relationship with the “body” of life is encouraged now.

This Solar Eclipse in Taurus may also manifest as being brought back down to Earth after such powerful changes and breakthroughs in recent days.

That means looking at your life in more real and practical ways.  That can mean taking what you are being awakened to lately and actually doing something meaningful with it.

The strength of new beginnings for manifestation are strong as this Taurus New Moon is many times stronger than the usual Taurus New Moon- because it is also a Solar Eclipse.

New beginnings may be initiated with this Solar Eclipse, and events both personally and especially worldwide are likely to touch off during this Solar Eclipse and at other triggering celestial events in the near future.

There is some real danger of a Russian invasion of Ukraine or some other large scale world event around the time of the Taurus Solar Eclipse this week.

It is even more likely that a large scale world event will happen at or after Mars going Direct on May 19.   And then an even more likely time of important world event to manifest would be at or soon after Mars triggers the exact Grand Cross degree from this past week-  on June 17.

After that, a likely time period for more powerful world events to occur would be after Mars goes into Scorpio on July 26This passage of Mars into Scorpio is especially important as Mars has been in harmony and peace loving Libra since early December 2013. It has been there that long because it has been retrograde for much of that time.  Whatever has been kept in abeyance by the love and peace vibes of Libra will tend to break open after that.

In August and especially in September 2014, energies that signify powerful eruptions of energy break out in the charts of Israel , Syria, Iran and the USA.  North Korea and China may also be in the spotlight.

And in October 2014 the Grand Cross is triggered again by a Lunar Eclipse in Aries, which sets off the USA natal Sun and Saturn again, promising events of great transformation for America.

And then of course remember that Uranus Square Pluto happens two more times: December 2014, and in a very powerful Cardinal T-Square of the USA chart again in April 2015.

So for the next year and perhaps up to 18 months there is promise of enormous change in the world and in the United States.

All this world transformation is part of the clearing out of old and decaying ways from a dying paradigm and age.  This releasing clears the way for the light and hope for an Age of Aquarius, which will be in true bloom after December of 2020 when Jupiter conjuncts Saturn at 0+ degrees of Aquarius.  This is symbolism that resonates for me of a Dawning of the Age of Aquarius.

There is so much to experience between now and then, so much change and transformation.  There will be many surprises also that help us to let go of the programming and propaganda that has wanted to keep our hearts and minds chained to that old paradigm.

Open your mind to being blown open to new realities, new worlds beyond our current comprehension. There are so many frequencies of experience we have been closed off to, so many inner dimensions awaiting the arrival of our collective consciousness.  The outer and inner Universe is vast with much life we have not yet met.

There is a spirit and soul world we have not been taught about by our formal educations. Those educations demand our concentrations be on learning math and science, to keep us competitive with other countries in the world.

In our Earth world that has gotten smaller and smaller with international commerce, transportation, communication, internet, and yes world war; we are still babies in knowing how to get along with one another in an empathic way that understands we are all in this human journey together, one family made of diverse members, all equal in intrinsic worth.

Diversity in Unity is where we are all headed, knowing each of us is a needed instrument in the symphony of the Universe’s music of the spheres.

It is becoming more and more imperative that each of us gets to know, honor, and express our individual and authentic self, and to know purpose and meaning for our life. The self esteem that develops from those connections opens our hearts and minds to honoring others in the same way.

Keep your sanity now- and work on keeping your mind, body and soul as healthy as you can during these changing times.   Then trust the ride we are all taking to be one that is arriving in the Age of Aquarius.
