The Solar Eclipse | New Moon in Taurus brings us an opportunity to settle in and ground the energies that have been unearthed during this recent portal of transformation. We can allow the nurturing, feminine and grounding energy of Taurus to help us move forward, by physically engaging in that which nurtures.
Spending quality time with our family and engaging in the physical satisfaction of doing things with our hands, cooking, crafting, building, cleaning, all these things bring us deep satisfaction and ground us into the present.
So much of what has been suppressed is coming to the light and it feels as though the very ground beneath us, our very foundation has been shaking, and for some of us it truly has. Our collective ground of being needs to be shaken because it most of it has been built on illusions.
This has been a time of seeing. Illusions about ourselves, illusions about others and illusions about our world. All of these are crumbling away so we can rebuild on what is real and true.
It is a time of recognizing and aligning with what we truly value, and then vowing to live our lives in a way that truly upholds and reflects it. Not in just with our words, but with our actions and the way that we live. This is the lesson this time brings.
So have courage dear hearts, see what needs to be seen, feel it, and allow the transformation that is taking place within and without to carry us to the new. Magic, rebirth, inspiration and much goodness awaits. 
Here are the MYSTIC MAMMA Astral Insights from the most tuned in readers of the planetary movements. First from the always wonderful Pat Liles from The Power
“We have come through a major planetary alignment, been witness to some of our personal darker corners, yet also touched into some very higher-centered energies of inspiration, change and movement in new directions. 
“Projects, gardens, relationships, adventures are springing into life.  Taurus, the feminine, Earth power sign ruled by beautiful Venus, is a magnificent mentor for this time. 
“After a time of rapid acceleration, we need to pull back and integrate, rest.  Taurus’ goal is peace, and we get there by being, not doing.
“Taurus is that fertile place inside all where we gestate new life.  Let this time of huge growth spurt now take root inside you…”
“Benefit from Taurus’ enjoyment of the physical pleasures, of embodied experience.  A fragrance enhanced massage, music, a meal cooked and shared with good company, anything that brings you and your body into contentment will be honoring of Taurus and Venus too…”
“Taurus is about having an abundance of self-love and self worth to fund gratitude and appreciation for the world as it is and to reach out and help others.  Taurus has solid, unshakable values.  What do you value above all else right now?”
“…Reach for those frequencies of empowerment and love that have been opened to us for our healing and rebirth.  We all are troubled by the corrupted energies we experience in legal, educational, medical, political areas.  Resisting, complaining and railing against these forces is joining them.  Working from the positive energies of your heart- cooperation, generosity, all shared energies – is what will change our world in the direction we desire.
“…The Solar eclipse at New Moon, though visible only in the south Indian Ocean, Australia and Antarctica, will culminate this rarified period of alignment creating a reset as the Sun’s light, energy, and magnetic field are temporarily suspended and allow for a new and refreshed alignment. 
Time to re-ground ourselves using Taurus’ stability and presence.  Whether from garden or trail, field or mountain, put your feet on the ground or better yet, put your back on the Earth and root yourself deeply down to the core of Mother Earth and draw up her love, nourishment and support into your body and ask for her guidance for a vision of your future self.”

 From the insightful Divine Harmony:
“The annular Solar Eclipse in Taurus is exact on Monday April 28th at 11:04pm PDT (with the New Moon itself being exact at 11:14pm)…”
“Both the lunar eclipse and the solar eclipse are ruled by venus in pisces- so these particularly eclipse are focused on relationships, our values and self-worth. Major shifts, changes, shake ups and wake up calls are playing out in how we do that self and other dance– as well as how we do the masculine/feminine dance within…”
“It is interesting to note that both Venus in Pisces and retrograde Mars in Libra make tense aspects to this Eclipse- so relationships are again brought into focus. We may need to figure out how to make relationships work in our lives. We may be asked to find a new balance of yin and yang within. Wherever our edge is is where our growth is…”
“In the Eclipse chart Venus makes tense aspects to the Sun, Moon and Mercury- showing that our idealism may be at odds with the practical, realities that are present in our lives right now. Yet Venus does make a sweet trine to saturn in scorpio, so if we are ready, willing and able to acknowledge the shadow and deal with it- we can make great strides in our emotional and financial relationships at this time. We can also find a deeper level of self-worth and self-respect out of which we make healthier decisions in relationships and financial situations.”
“…the good news for us is that all this earthy, grounded Taurus energy is helping us ground down into the new terrain we find ourselves in as a result of all the upheaval and chaos that the Grand Cross has brought. Things may be up in the air- but the solar eclipse in taurus helps us find our center despite any storms, shifts and changes playing out around us.”
“This Solar Eclipse is a wonderful opportunity for us to get real, grounded, focused and present with what we want to birth in our lives. It’s the perfect time to align with our deepest values and unconditional Love for self AND other- so that we can make healthy decisions and align ourselves with what is right for us in our lives.”

From Cathy Pagano from her Wisdom of Astrology:
“The Sun entered the sign of Taurus on April 19th, just hours before the Grand Cardinal Cross began to perfect… This womb of transformative energies locked into form a matrix which can energize a new sense of Self-hood within each of us as well as a strong vision for a new society.
“The new story has to be about our relationship with the Earth and each other.  The feminine values of relationship, connection and union are the foundation of this new society and new sense of Self.  
“Patriarchy has promoted an ideal of individual self-hood that has lost connection with others and with the Earth.  Along with that ideal arose the rejection of feminine values and the devaluing of women and feminine ways of knowing as well as the rape of the Earth.  
“This rejection of the feminine has led to a loss of Wisdom in our society. Sometimes we are sadly lacking in the compassion and wisdom that are basic moral and cosmic laws…”
“Ancient societies knew that humans are intimately connected with our environment.  At the root of all life is our connection to Mother Earth.  And yet we live in a society that rejects that wisdom and misuses that gift. 
“So let’s begin this new creation by taking time every day to find a bit of Earth to be with, communicate with and care for.  Whether you live in the city, the country or the desert, you walk on this beautiful Earth, feel the warmth of the Sun’s fires, are blown away by the winds and refreshed by the rains.  Re-Connect!  Learn to understand the voices of the Earth.  Perhaps you can help or heal something.  Perhaps you will be healed.
“All native people created societies that lived in harmony with the Earth.  Our modern society has fallen out of balance with nature and created great dis-harmony with the Earth. 
“Our ice caps are melting and flooding the oceans with cold sweet waters that can disrupt weather patterns around the world.  We are poisoning the Earth—her soil, air and waters—for profit and power, laziness and complacency, stupidity and arrogance…”
“Taurus’ lesson is to teach us how to be good stewards of the Earth and her bountyWhat is being birth within the matrix of the comic cross is the evolutionary need for humanity to once again reclaim our place in Earth’s ecology and discover our purpose, to live in harmony with each other and with all of nature and to learn from its wisdom…”
“Taurus also gives us the gift of self-worth and the responsibility to have strong values.  What do you value?  And what values do you hold sacred?  If we are to build (a Taurus activity) something new, we have to build it on values that are strong and secure.  
“One of the troubles with our world is that we aren’t living up to our values and ideals People talk a good talk, but don’t walk the walk.  And so we have a nation, and a world, of hypocrites who want to look bright and shiny on the outside for all the world to see, but who are really living out very negative desires for power, greed, and domination.  
“Until we change our priorities away from economic gain and back to community welfare and global inter-connection, we will fail to change anything. Our values form the basis of an ethical life and the ethical society we all imagine we live in.
“If we want to change ourselves, we have to know what our values are and then strive to live them.  Love, honesty, courage, courtesy, respect, hope, creativity, knowledge, wisdom, truth, honor, responsibility.  These are just a few of the virtues that we need to live out our values, especially if we believe in equality and freedom.  
“A solar eclipse occurs when the Sun and Moon and Earth align as the Moon passes between the Sun and the Earth, and the light of the Sun dims.  This disrupts the energy coming from the Sun and how it affects the web of life here on Earth, rebooting us with a new consciousness.  A solar eclipse is an extra powerful new Moon, so plant your seeds with promises of a new connection to nature, to your body and to the interconnection with everyone here on Earth.     
 “Change is always the key to eclipses.  So watch to see what changes come your way—even if they seem sudden, they’ve probably been building for some time now.  Stay open to the mystery and allow it to happen.  A new beginning is indeed upon us.
 “The eclipse occurs on Monday and Tuesday, April 28th-29th at 11:14pm PDT, 2:14am EDT, 6:14am GMT.   This is what is called an annular eclipse, when a narrow rind of the Sun is visible around the dark mass of the Moon.  It is visible in Antarctica and the southern most parts of the East.”
