For All Signs: On Thursday the 26th, we will experience a full moon eclipse in Scorpio, followed by an eclipsed new moon in Taurus on the 9th of May. For many of us, this month will see an experience of manifestation or enlightenment about situations that have been long in the making. See both your sun and ascending signs below to read how these eclipses will affect you.

Taurus the Bull (April 20-May 20): The eclipses have drawn attention to your partnerships. It is crucial to search out solutions that favor everyone concerned. Recapitulation to old habits will simply regenerate trauma.

Aries: The eclipse pattern emphasizes issues of sexuality, intimacy and material accumulation. Your attitudes in these areas need renewal. You may be more conscious than usual about existential matters related to life, death and what is on the "other side" of normal, waking consciousness. It could feel important to arrange your will or estate.

Gemini: It is important for the Twins to concentrate on improvement of work-related relationships and health maintenance. Diet, exercise and improvement of physical regimen will serve you well. Honing your management systems in personal and work arenas is necessary to improve the efficiency of the daily work routine. You must balance concerns of recent years with better self-care.

Cancer: The eclipse pattern emphasizes your progeny. Intense experiences could come through your children or the results of other personally creative births. Both errors and successes in parenting and/or creative work will be revealed for all to see. The time is approaching to let go of friendships and associations that no longer serve you well. Romantic ventures are intensely emotional and self-revealing.

Leo: Matters concerning your family are accented. Old problems in relationships, even with the deceased, are brought to consciousness for cleansing and healing. Bringing career into alignment with your true self is an important focus. That which doesn't genuinely fit must be rearranged or eliminated.

Virgo: The accent of this eclipse period is on travel, education, care of vehicles and relationships to siblings, roommates, neighbors or others who daily traverse your life. Lifelong patterns of thought must be reviewed and negative thinking corrected, while habits of speech and communication are improved. Now is the time to focus on learning new and practical life skills.

Libra: This eclipse series accents personal and financial resources. Greater understanding and awareness will develop related to expenditures of time, energy and money. You need to eliminate or recycle whatever is no longer useful in your life. Conditions of intimate life and sexuality are stale and must be renewed.

Scorpio: Your personal identity is the subject under consideration. Who are you becoming and who do you need to be? How can you develop an individual identity that is workable while simultaneously maintaining a personally rewarding relationship?

Sagittarius: The Taurus/Scorpio eclipses emphasize your need for self-reflection. You must remain true to your self. Consider hypnosis or meditation, psychotherapy, dream work or journaling as resources to help you think. Streamlining daily routines will help you preserve time for contemplation.

Capricorn: Involvement in your community, networking and developing friendships will be occupying a center role. You have lessons to learn about discerning who is truly a friend. This eclipse series may yield a critical turn in the area of love and personal creativity.

Aquarius: There will be emphasis on career, life goals and community reputation. Property may require repair, rejuvenation or replacement. You may experience a sense of loss, but renewal occurs in its wake.

Pisces: Legal, ethical or educational issues are emphasized by the eclipse pattern. Travel is punctuated, whether it is of body, mind or spirit. Exposure to those of different backgrounds or cultures leads you in new directions.
