|Ring of Fire Solar Eclipse ~ visible over Australia and the Pacific Ocean|
Wednesday, May 8th: The Moon ingressed Taurus at 6:10 a.m. EDT shifting the emotional energy to one of practicality, comfort with the familiar, sensuality through good food and tactile pleasures. Mars sextiled Chiron early this a.m. supporting a helpful, educational, healing and supportive approach to our tasks and desires.
On THURSDAY the NEW MOON SOLAR Eclipse (Ring of Fire Eclipse - visible over Australia and the Pacific Ocean) is the first in it's pattern of Taurus (for some time) and occurs at 8:29 p.m. EDT. Solar Eclipses set things in motion and bring situations to bear that are game changers and manifestation tools! What do you seek to experience in the realms of finance and personal skill sets? This Eclipse conjuncts the asteroid Pallas, a creative and intelligent energy that helps you to arrange things the way you would like. She is also a persuasive influence should you need to convince someone of something. Mercury is part of the mix as well suggesting that discussion, contracts and planning are supported.
Venus makes her ingress into Gemini where she will transit until June 2nd. Under Gemini's influence we value intelligence, curiosity and the art of conversation. We may also be of "two" minds in the areas of love and money. Mercury opposes the North Node suggesting conscious awareness of developing trends regarding earnings vs. investments, self-esteem vs. sexuality, tangible ownership vs. psychological resources.
