Solar Eclipse in Taurus April 2022

The New Moon/Solar Eclipse in Taurus takes place on April 30, 2022 at 21:28 (BST). The Moon and Sun will be at 10Tau28. There is a proliferation of planetary activity in the signs Taurus and Pisces. Our hands are in the mud, moulding and shaping clay. What is your vision? What is the shape of the pot that will be fired by the blaze of your spirit?

The Sabian symbol of this lunation is ‘A Woman Watering Flowers In Her Garden’. This symbol speaks of taking care of the planet and ensuring that we spend time in the natural world. Whether it’s your garden or the park or the woodlands,  time in nature heals and rejuvenates.

This symbol also speaks of the simplicity of life. When we plant things in the ground – symbolically or literally – if we plant seeds in the right environment, water them, give them time or money or energy; when we invest in those things, then those seeds will naturally grow.

With Venus, the ruler of this lunation forming a conjunction to Jupiter on the same day as the eclipse, it tells us that there are rewards for taking the time to nurture and nourish our hopes and dreams. But we must be patient, allow time for organic growth. Sip water mindfully.  Know that you are part of the natural world. Water is what unites us all. Take care of the body (earth-Taurus) because it is the temple for the soul (water – Pisces).

I recorded a 38mins astro-tarot reading over on my Patreon, where I discussed the solar saros of this eclipse and talked about asteroids Eros, Hygeia and Astraea in relation to the eclipse chart. If you would like to listen (a transcript is available too), click here to join my Patreon
