We enter Eclipse season again. Solar Eclipses are particularly charged New Moons. It is as if these special encounters of our Luminaries dominate the yearly trend of the most basic, yet fundamental of cycles. This month, the Sun and Moon align in early Taurus, in conjunction with Uranus. The unexpectedness of the partial eclipse’s Uranian signature perhaps adds some excitement to the picture, but we should also remember that things may really shake up. Luckily, its ruler Venus is still busy with that triple conjunction with Jupiter and Neptune in Pisces. I guess we may be asking ourselves how far can we go in disrupting our ‘comfort zone’, as we try to embrace the idyllic promises of that Piscean cluster.
I find it interesting that the eclipse will oppose the Venus-Mars contact between Putin’s and Biden’s charts. The disruptive qualities of this particular eclipse may be pivotal. The metamorphic lunar eclipse of May 16th will affect Queen Elizabeth’s MC/IC axis, with Saturn squaring it. The Full Moon will be angular over London. I guess our eyes may potentially be on the UK as well.
The headlines are still full of bad stories… after all, are they ever violence-free? However, we have been learning an important lesson over the last two months. As we temporarily stepped out of that frustrating Saturn-Uranus waning square, we start enjoying a creative renaissance. This Piscean cluster will potentially open up new fashion/artistic/musical trends, but it has also been poisoning us with images of social decay and war zone misery. Let’s not forget that our human community is vast and variegated, and that not everyone experiences the highest octaves of such archetypal trends.
Also, Pluto has just stationed retrograde in partile aspect to dwarf planet Haumea. I guess we are still swimming through this pandemic of fear, surrounded by ‘financial-scientific’ campaigns, though large parts of society are finally aware of the primary need to unify and connect emotionally.
