Eclipses occur during full and new moons when the Earth casts a shadow on the full moon in a lunar eclipse and the moon intercepts the light of the sun in a solar eclipse. Astrologically, eclipses speak to our destiny and karmic story. Every year, we go through what astrologers call an eclipse season, during which each new and full moon create a lunar and solar eclipse respectively. In 2022, we have two eclipse seasons, one beginning Apr. 30 and another in the fall.
Eclipses relate to geometric points along the elliptical orbit of the moon known as lunar nodes. These nodes align with different opposing signs on the zodiac, and this eclipse season they will be in the signs of Taurus and Scorpio.
What this means is during the spring eclipse season we will want to make changes in areas related to our values and possessions (Taurus) and our subconscious and sexual lives (Scorpio). Seemingly fateful events and unpredictable energy will put these parts of ourselves into question.
To help prepare for our first eclipse season this month, here is another cosmic playlistand some guidance based on your sun and rising sign.
