The Solar Eclipse is on Saturday, April 30 at 3:28 pm CDT in 10° Taurus. Eclipses often bring changes that could impact your life for the next year or more. With two other planets that portend change involved, there could be some significant changes. Uranus (14° Taurus), bringer of sudden, unexpected changes, is conjunct the Sun and Moon of the Solar Eclipse. Pluto which symbolizes transformative or revolutionary changes is at its retrograde station (28° Capricorn).
We can look at a solar eclipse like this in many ways. First there are the cautions. People's emotions are high under this type of aspect. Take care of yourself, so that you are finding harmonious outlets for all that energy. Don't speak the words that trigger an argument. Be cautious with electronic devices (Uranus rules electricity.) Avoid crowds (Pluto rules crowds), especially those where emotions get stimulated (protest marches, sporting events).
Another way to look at any aspect is to reflect on what you want to get from it. If there's high energy, can you channel it into a project or a life improvement? Affirmations are great at any new moon, but an eclipse is a super new moon, so even more effect. What do you want to bring into your life in the year ahead? Write it down. Visualize it. Affirm it.
It's not a stable time for taking action on new projects. Innovative ideas that come to you at this time may be valuable and should be written down. Before taking action, look at those ideas a few days later to determine whether they are realistic or will bring too much chaos into your life.
Mercury goes retrograde on May 10 at 4° Gemini. Think before speaking and carefully proofread documents and emails.
Jupiter enters the sign Aries on May 10th, expanding opportunities for people who are Sun sign Aries or who have other personal planets in that sign for the next 12 months.
