Solar Eclipse May 9-10, 2013


 “Right now I want a word that describes the feeling that you get–a cold sick feeling, deep down inside–when you know something is happening that will change you, and you don’t want it to, but you can’t stop it. And you know, for the first time, for the very first time, that there will now be a before and an after, a was and a will be. And that you will never again quite be the same person you were.” Jennifer Donnelly, A Northern Light

New Moon Solar Eclipse Is Part of a Taurus Stellium.  This new moon solar eclipse falls at 19 degrees Taurus.  In a solar eclipse the Sun and Moon are always conjunct.  What is amazing about this particular eclipse is that it is part of a rolling stellium started by Mars at 14 degrees Taurus, then the South Node at 16 degrees, Mercury at 17 degrees, the Sun and Moon and finally the asteroid Pallas Athena at 19 degrees.  Even if you have very little knowledge of astrology, you can see that there is a LOT of energy packed into the sign of Taurus and that it is a very important eclipse for those affected.

Eclipses Bring Change.  The April 25 lunar eclipse, this May 9-10 solar eclipse and the upcoming May 24-25 lunar eclipse may bring a relationship change, a career change, a personal image change, or you may be faced with changes beyond your control. It can be very uncomfortable to let go of what is familiar in order to make space in your head and your heart for new ideas. 

Solar Eclipses Bring New Beginnings.  Eclipses illuminate what is hidden.  A solar eclipse is a dramatic push toward new beginnings. Unfamiliar aspects of yourself may surface and your secret desires may clamor for attention.  Changes in your thoughts, speech, dress, career, lifestyle, health, family, expectations and goals are a part of this eclipse and a part of fulfilling your evolutionary purpose and creating a more fulfilled life.

The Fixed Zodiac Signs Are  Most Affected by the May 9-10 Solar Eclipse.  Those of you with a Taurus sun sign, Taurus ascendant or a Taurus Moon will be most affected by this solar eclipse.  If you are a Scorpio, have a Scorpio ascendant or a Scorpio Moon you will feel this eclipse more strongly than most, because Scorpio forms a polarity with the eclipse Sun and Moon.  If you are a Scorpio you may be especially affected by the attitudes and actions of others (stay grounded and focused on your goals).  If you have natal planets conjunct, square or opposed to the solar eclipse, you will also feel its effects (that is, if you have planets near 19 degrees of Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius).  

Spending Time in Nature Is Beneficial.  Taurus, an earth sign, brings our attention to our material world, particularly our environment and the sensuous, healing energy of nature.  Because the Taurean energy is so intense, it would be a good idea to spend some time outdoors in nature; and yes, don’t be afraid to hug a tree.  Walking barefoot is even better, as it will have a calming, grounding effect on you.  Volunteering for environmental causes would be a good way to take the focus off of yourself and your problems/issues.

How Can I Positively Use This Solar Eclipse in Taurus Energy?  This solar eclipse in Taurus highlights issues around money, security, self-worth and personal values.  As with all solar eclipses, the emphasis is on making changes in something in your life or to start something new.  Look to the house in your natal chart where the eclipse falls to see where it will impact you. 

The lunar eclipse of April 25, 2013, was a catalyst for letting go.  Now, with this solar eclipse you may get a tantalizing glimpse of what your life could be like if you were to let go of your negative burdens and enthusiastically begin working toward new goals.  You might want to ask yourself:

  • How can I establish a right relationship with money?  Is the money I earn enhancing my life or causing me more stress and worry?
  • Does my work foster a sense of excitement and joy and does it bring me satisfaction?  If not, how can I make changes to make work a joyful part of my life?
  • How would life be different if I relinquished the negative and/or erroneous images that I have held about myself so I can be my best, authentic me?
  • How would life feel if I let go of the heavy baggage from the past?
  • What projects and aspirations that I once held dear can I now dust off, and bring out into the world in a new, fresh way?
  • How can I let go of relationships that bring me sorrow, agitation and worry and find and cultivate the relationships that bring me joy?

This eclipse series (April 25, 2013 eclipse, May 9-10, 2013 eclipse and May 24-25, 2013 eclipse), though sometimes painful and stressful, can spark the changes that can bring you to a more joyful, fulfilling place in your life.  Best wishes as you embark on your “new and improved” life path!

I will be offering 20 minute, mini-eclipse readings from May 1, 2013 through May 30, 2013 on a “first come, first served” basis, for $35.  This is a great opportunity to discover how these Eclipses are impacting your life and to learn the best way to utilize them to make your life better.   Readings are by phone or Skype.  Sign up under Contact Me at the top of the screen.

    Hello Ruby,
    I am your strong follower as you know. But I believe that these eclipse periods creates major changes in our lives. I would like to learn how will this one effect me? Will it bring love this time ? I think there is a conjuction with my Venus at 12th house?

      Hello dd817, As always, it is good to hear from you again. The May 9, 2013 solar eclipse falls in your 12th house conjunct your Chiron/Venus natal conjunction in Taurus. The eclipse doesn’t promise you will find a relationship. What it does highlight in a big way is the need to let go of old hurts around relationships and material concerns. With Chiron conjunct Venus in your birthchart there are some old buried issues that need to be eradicated once and for all. Remember, the lunar eclipse article talked about letting go of something and the solar eclipse has to do with moving on and letting the new in. As the stellium of transiting planets moves into your first hour Gemini, you should be noticed in a good way, so do the work, put yourself out there and smile a lot.

      Pluto is transiting to a near-conjunction with your south node in Capricorn. Problems (money?) having to do with an old (South Node) relationship could resurface. Or, you may need to transform something to do with other’s money as it relates to you. This aspect is not at its maximum strength, but something to be aware of.

      Yes, I do yearly astrological readings (I call them solar return readings). I would look at your solar return, progressions and transits. A full reading is $125, a half-hour reading is $65. I could do the reading by Skype. Payment is through Paypal.
