The first New Moon Solar Eclipse of the year is set to arrive on April 30 and spoiler alert: it’s full of surprises. If you are open to it, this supercharged New Moon Eclipse in Taurus could provide just the boost you’ve been needing. The partial solar eclipse will be visible only in certain parts of the world, such as Antarctica and much of South America. Eclipses have a way of creating sweeping change, while new moons are all about setting fresh intentions. Whether you aim to tackle your finances or connect with a lover, the New Moon Eclipse is a perfect time.
This New Moon is known as a Black Moon, thanks to the Old Farmer’s Almanac. A new moon occurs whenever the sun can only illuminate the part of the moon we can’t see from Earth—so basically, it’s invisible to us. In ancient times, people would often time their harvest around the lunar calendar. They would plant all their seeds under a new moon, at the beginning of the cycle, when the sky was at its darkest. When the moon is hidden in the sky as it is during a new moon, it’s much harder for critters to discover seeds that haven’t yet had the time to sprout. If you think about it, it’s interesting how this same thinking applies nicely to our intentions.
“New Moon Eclipse in Taurus energy is all about your ability to make the intangible tangible.”
Often it is said that by planting seeds or initiating an intention, you must first create in your mind, in the dark, before whatever you want can be created in the physical world. When we take steps towards our intentions, dreams and goals under a new moon, we are able to tap into a little window of time when the universe is most receptive to initiation.
The New Moon In Taurus & Solar Eclipse
This new moon, charged with the protection of the darkness, can provide the right sustenance to nurture our intentions to fruition. This is doubly so when the new moon is closest to the nodes, creating an eclipse. The Black Moon should peak around 4:40 p.m. EST on Saturday, April 30.
In astrology, the nodes are tied closely to our purpose, destiny and past. Very often whatever comes up during an eclipse tends to be far-reaching, highly influential and deeply tied to our higher purpose in some way.
With a New Moon Eclipse in Taurus, you could anticipate a push to dive deep into your values. New Moon Eclipse in Taurus energy is all about your sense of purpose, your self-esteem, your ability to make the intangible tangible and your overall sense of self-worth.
