Our first taste of eclipse energy in 2022 arises out of the merging of the Sun and the Moon in the form of a Taurus New Moon. Intentions around values and sensuality can be powerfully set this weekend as the Moon, being closer to Earth, obscures a portion of the Sun’s light.
Intentions around values and sensuality can be powerfully set this weekend as the Moon, being closer to Earth, obscures a portion of the Sun’s light. This disturbance to the normal rhythms of the cosmos provides a portal for life-changing messages and downloads to come through from higher planes, at least to those who are searching or ready to make a breakthrough.
Make space for silence
Be gentle with yourself at this time and create a space for silence. On Saturday evening or Sunday morning (Asia time), mark the eclipse out in nature if the weather allows for it, or else light some palo santo at home and sit in quiet contemplation.
The Taurus New Moon will be followed by a period of intense action, an openness to trial-and-error when it comes to our material requirements in life. Acting to create stability or to consolidate resources may feel more important. Sensual experiences (with food, music, art, people) and cherished possessions could take on heightened significance.
Understanding yourself through a birth chart
Working with your birth time and location information, in addition to the birth date, will show you just how the 12 astrological houses are laid out and therefore more specifically what is being activated by the travelling celestial bodies. Generally, Houses 1 through 6 have to do with one’s private life, whereas Houses 7 through 12 cover our interactions with others and how we fit into broader society. Once you have a chart based on accurate birth details, the houses must be considered along with the signs and planets.
The joining of the Sun and Moon happens at 12° Taurus, and where this falls in a person’s birth chart will shed light on the activity that is primed to manifest. It is possible to generate a chart online or with the help of a private astrologer as long as you have a birth time, location, and birth date.
Once the zodiac wheel is in hand, locate the Ascendant point at the 9 o’clock position on the left and the sign that it falls in. The Ascendant sign is also known as the rising sign. It is also the beginning of the 1st house.
