Overnight yesterday into today was the Taurus New Moon and solar eclipse — the event that, together with the lunar eclipse two weeks ago, has bookended two weeks of this season’s incredible astrology. Exactly on cue, Eric is recording the Taurus Birthday Reading today — right in the slipstream of this energy.
What happens when the planet of “I am” turns retrograde in the sign of “we are?” Eric takes a close look at the interesting relationship energy that may be stirring up our personal values, offering some insight in navigating these choppy waters. He also investigates the issue of ‘rape culture’ and the projection of power that pervades our society.
To read Genevieve’s horoscopes, it helps to know your Moon sign (where the Moon was at the moment of your birth), which you can find out by entering your birth data into Serennu.com. Often you can still get accurate Moon sign info even if you lack your exact birth time. You can also read these horoscopes for your Sun and rising signs for additional insight.
Today into tomorrow the astrological moment we’ve all been anticipating peaks: the cardinal grand cross, as retrograde Mars exactly aspects Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto. We’ve been tracking this alignment for weeks, noting the tremendous energy it signifies, yet not quite venturing into the realm of prediction; its potential in your life is wide open.
In every area of your life, you must proceed with caution, especially where your relationships are concerned. Caution does not mean fear. Rather, it means awareness and proceeding with a commitment to having accurate information. Where human relationships are concerned, there are three sources of information: yourself, the person you’re communicating with, and your environment.
In this edition, Eric provides a guided tour of April’s Grand Cross, the peak of the Uranus-Pluto era. He explores the significance of these potent astrological forces as well as the fascinating alignment with the chart of the United States. Chiron, the symbol of holistic healing, may be the key to integrating our cultural shadow material during this transformational time.
Last night’s total eclipse of the Moon in Libra passed by with the energy of a thunderstorm, stirring up a fuss and then leaving a moment of reflective quiet behind it. Full Moons always release tension, and lunar eclipses can enhance that effect. I covered this eclipse in a detailed article published Monday morning called The Goddess Reveals Herself: Bursts of Aries and Libra.
