Taurus The Bull (April 20-May 20)
This eclipse pattern has emphasized issues of sexuality, intimacy and material accumulation. Reorganization of debt and investments may be in progress. You may now be more conscious than usual about existential matters related to life, death and what is on "the other side" of normal, waking consciousness.
For All Signs: We have an eclipse in Gemini on May 20, with an answering eclipse on June 4 in Sagittarius. This eclipse season represents a crisis/change period for all those human affairs ruled by the signs: newspapers and other journalistic media, public education, phone companies, postal services, paper mills or other paper related manufacturers and retailers, printing companies, traffic flow, communications, higher education and travel. "Crisis" is not necessarily negative. It means opportunity to recognize and improve upon ongoing problems and issues involving these areas. It is a call for action and demands attention. Eclipse periods affect everyone, according to your sun sign and rising. See below for how it may affect you.
Aries: Legal, ethical or educational issues have been emphasized by the eclipses of the year. Travel has been punctuated, whether it be of body, mind or spirit. Exposure to those of different backgrounds or cultures opens your heart and leads you in new directions. A challenge concerning siblings, roommates or neighbors may cause you to seek the High Road.
Gemini: The eclipses of this 18-month series have drawn attention to your partnerships. Patterns from your childhood history needed to be uncovered, repaired or removed in order to allow your growth into a more mature relationship. Self-searching or psychotherapy may be truly helpful.
Cancer: Eclipses have pressured you to concentrate on improvement of work-related relationships and health maintenance. Diet, exercise and concentration on physical regimen has been imperative. Honing your management systems in personal and work arenas is necessary to create order in your daily work routine and mental organization.
Leo: The current eclipse pattern is emphasizing your progeny or other personally creative "births." Romantic ventures have been intensely emotional and self-revealing. You have also learned a few lessons in discernment concerning friendships and associations that no longer serve you well.
Virgo: Matters concerning your family and property are accented for the current 18-month cycle. Old problems in relationships, even with the deceased, have been brought to consciousness for cleansing and healing. A new family member may have entered the scene, or you may have begun to spend more time with family in general.
Libra: The accent of this eclipse cycle has been on travel, education, care of vehicles and relationships to siblings, roommates, neighbors or others who daily traverse your life. You are seeing how your habit patterns of thought affect your attitude toward life. New practical life skills have been developing.
Scorpio: This eclipse series accents personal and financial resources. Greater understanding and awareness have developed related to expenditures of time, energy and money. You may have incurred debt. You are learning to eliminate or recycle whatever or whomever no longer serves a positive purpose in your life.
Sagittarius: Your sense of personal identity is the subject under consideration. Who are you becoming and who do you need to be? How do you wish to define yourself before the world? You are learning what is required for you to hold onto your identity while simultaneously maintaining a personally rewarding relationship.
Capricorn: The Sagittarius/Gemini eclipses have been emphasizing your need to create order, both internally and externally. The development of your projects has required the faith of your deepest self. Bringing order out of chaos is done on both the inner and outer levels simultaneously, so while you organized files, you were also organizing your mind.
Aquarius: The eclipse series is bringing a variety of new opportunities concerning your community networking and development of friendships. In order to accommodate for these additions, you may have needed to let go of previous creative projects. This may have caused some grief but it may not be permanent.
Pisces: This eclipse series has focused a certain amount of intensity in the arenas of career (work in the world) and also home, hearth and family. You are stretching your worldly boundaries throughout the 18-month cycle to serve an expanded public. Family relationships have included one loss and one gain.
