Change is on the way – it’s Eclipse season!
The winds of change are blowing hard and strong here today along with cleansing rain, which is totally in tune with the message of this New Moon Eclipse in earthy Taurus.

It’s out with the old and in with the new. Over the past few weeks it’s been a bit of a strange ride. The energies have created real peaks and troughs in our lives. The peaks have been awesome and the troughs have been so deep, there were times when we thought we’d never come up for air (or light) again. The energies also made some of us feel jittery and affected sleeping patterns (what sleep some of you might be asking?!!).
For those who have been working intensely with the recent energies, you may find yourself in a between and betwixt state. You are aware that the past has dropped away, that the old habits and behaviours have fallen away, that the people who no longer match you have fallen away, that the jobs/homes/environments have fallen away or are starting to fall away. Yet you have no clue as to what or where (or even who) you are supposed to be next.
This New Moon Eclipse heralds a time of inner and outer rebuilding. Of casting your wishes like seeds out into the Universe and trusting that they will flourish in the Cosmic Garden and manifest for you here on Earth.
Some of you may be there, you may know who you now are and how you want to live your life. Your energy will be high and you will be buzzing with your goals and projects as you prepare to birth them and share them with the world.
For those who are not sure yet, wait. Wait until clarity comes and use today/tonight to write out a list of all that you want to see manifest in your life over the coming 12 months. Don’t hold back. Think of every area of your life and write it all down. Ask big! There is enough for everyone, so there is absolutely no reason why you can’t have exactly what you desire, so get writing!
The Law of Attraction is working so powerfully at the moment, so don't be half hearted about anything (or you will get half hearted results). The Universe mirrors back exactly the energy you are thinking, feeling and sending out, it does not differentiate, it takes you literally.
Taurus is earthy and reminds us to focus on practical earthly matters. Taurus is offering us the opportunity to sort our physical lives out :
HEALTH – Nutrition and the type of foods you are eating, exercise – are you getting enough? How’s your sex life? How’s your self-care and self-nurturing?
HOME - Are you happy where you dwell? Do your bones feel at home here? Do you need to change things around or get rid of stuff to make space for new, to suit who you now are? Do you need to move? Have you outgrown where you are energetically?
FINANCES – Are you on top of them? Do you keep track of your money? What can you do to improve things for yourself? Are you giving too much money away? Is it time to schedule a session with a Financial Adviser and put a better plan in place for the next 12 months?
WORK – Are you in the career you have always wanted? Are you waking up excited each day about the work you will be doing? Is it time to change? Have you outgrown where you are and need to expand and spread your wings? Is it time to dare to go it alone?
Chinese Astrology-wise, as you know, we are in a Snake year. Extraordinarily we now enter a Fire Snake month (so yes, that’s a Snake month in a Snake year!) this doubles Snake energy. Susan Levitt wrote about this recently and said, “The Fire Snake can be very driven, is intense, spiritual, and born to succeed. Fire Snake is a dynamic worker who is not easily intimidated by anyone or anything. So luck is with you to set and accomplish goals, launch new endeavors, try new methods, and take innovative risks.
But be thorough in this Snake year and slow is better, especially with so many planets in Taurus. Luck is strongest for the Earth signs Taurus, Capricorn, and Virgo and for those born in Snake, Ox, Dragon, and Phoenix (Rooster) years, and during Snake hours 9 am - 11 am.”
Her warning about paying attention to detail is essential, as Snake energy can be very tricky and all that passionate, fire energy could cause you to get so excited that you overlook some important details. Also watch your back! Snake energy is notorious and it is doubled in the month of May.
There is also a wonderful line up of planets during this Eclipse providing extra energy and help for our dreams and goals, so get writing that list today/tonight! You can now stand in your power and be your true Self, you have wonderful planetary support right now. All that this Taurus Eclipse asks of you is that you Be Yourself NOW!
Please believe now, once and for all, that you have been freed from the chains of the past. You are free of all the old conditioning that has influenced you and affected your life so far. All that no longer serves you has been (or is being) released. Drop it all now; there is no need to keep carrying it around. You are FREE! You can step forward now, as your larger Self, unfurl those glorious wings and show the world your colours as there is more than enough space for you now, so claim it! Surround yourself only with that which raises your vibration and matches your dreams, goals and desires. (This includes your home, what you wear, how you do your hair, how you look after your health and finances. Out with the old and in with the new you!)
BTW – if you are being stubborn (a Taurean trait) you will suffer. Simple as. If you resist the changes that have to happen you will create even more problems for yourself and have a miserable time. Go with all that is happening now, even if it is scary, even if you don’t know what is next, TRUST! Trust that what is happening is for your highest good. As I have said many times before regarding Eclipses, whatever is taken away is for a very good reason, and you will be rewarded with something/someone in its place which is so much better than you can even have dreamed of. So let go and let God/dess.

New paths are opening up for you now, allowing you to show and share your true colours with the world. ‘Prosperity Pathways’ are also opening up with new opportunities. The more you can flow with the energies, the more you will be aware and ready for what now presents.
This week when we had the good weather, I did a lot of gardening. It was wonderful connecting with the Earth and its grounding energies, as well as interacting with my beloved Green and Growing relatives.
Earlier today I had the urge to do a lot of baking, then felt the messages coming through and sat down to share them with you. Baking and home based activities are very Taurean and it was nice to be in tune with the current energies.
Tonight we will sit down and write our Lists and I am so excited I can hardly wait!
New Moon Blessings to y’all and abundant Blessings for your Desire Lists!
P.S. A heartfelt thank you to those of you who sent messages of condolence regarding my mother’s death. I am finally emerging from my cave and feeling more rested and able to dive into my work once more. I would also like to thank my closest friends for their incredible support and love during what has been a difficult time.
