Yesterday we entered a New Moon in Aries. This was the second New Moon of April. This one was special because it came with a solar eclipse! It was a rare hybrid eclipse. A hybrid eclipse starts as an annular eclipse, then becomes total, and then transitions back to annular again. An annular eclipse has a unique look to it. The moon is in front of the sun but it appears to be slightly smaller than the sun so you can see a ring of visible sunlight around it. A beautiful bright ring of light.

Eclipses bring us revelations. Have you been feeling it? Often times the revelations are things we don’t WANT to see but NEED to see in order to evolve. Because eclipses reveal so much, this can be an unsettling time for the nervous system. The intensity of the energy of truths revealed can cause some anxiety. This might mean you feel some anxiousness right now but aren’t really sure why. Take time to center and ground to help manage this. Grounding can be done by walking outside with your bare feet touching the earth. Take this time to breathe and set intentions to let go of excess energy. Have faith that the universe has your back and things are ultimately working in your favor.

Endings and beginnings are happening now. Just know that it is all for the greater good. This eclipse is shining a light on things that you probably already knew deep down. Try to take whatever is shown to you and use it to begin a new path. This is all necessary to grow into the person you are meant to be. This might hurt a little but it is really all about beginning to HEAL. Try to tune into yourself and embrace authenticity right now. Who are you? What is working out for you and what is not? What do you need to thrive? What is your soul asking you to notice right now and act on? What is your truth? How can you heal old wounds and become your most loving, beautiful, and peaceful self? Let this new moon and eclipse burn away the old you and purify your truest, most authentic self. Start on a fresh new path! A journey of self discovery and transformation!

Today is also the first day of Taurus Season! Taurus is the second sign of the zodiac and is symbolized by the bull. Taurus is known to be grounded, strong, and moved by the beauty of nature. This is a time for us to all come back down to earth and get connected. Coinciding with the arrival of Spring, we are feeling some encouraging vibes that winter is finally over, and the time for renewal is now. Taurus carries an energy that is not flashy, instead it is practical, determined, steady, and grounded in the real world. This is a great time to remain focused on accomplishing your goals. As an earth sign, Taurus is rooted in the physicality of the body and the world around us. This makes Taurus a very sensual sign with the ability to bask in the pleasures of life. They enjoy tasting delicious food, feeling silk fabrics on their skin, a warm bath, feeling their feet touch the earth. Seeing the beauty of the world through a Taurus is a true gift. Taurus makes you open your eyes and enjoy what is tangible and right in front of you. This Taurus season, let’s savor all of life’s delicious moments with love and appreciation!
