There’s no denying that moon phases affect all of us on a deeply personal and collective level. But starting April 30th, this energy will be amplified with our lunar and solar eclipse season! Moon phases can bring huge changes into our lives, and the eclipse season will heighten that energy. The sun represents our connection to self and our identities. The moon is representational of our inner world, subconscious, and our emotions. When a solar eclipse occurs, we can expect deep transformations and changes to happen externally for us. During a lunar eclipse, our inner worlds will feel the shift and we can undergo intense personal growth. In 2022, this eclipse series will occur in water sign Scorpio and earth sign Taurus. This astrological axis will highlight our relationships with our shadows, mental health, and our connection to material matter and finances!
So what is an eclipse exactly? Ancient societies viewed them as symbols of huge changes and signs of danger. An eclipse identifies our karmic journey and brings to light what needs to come to the surface. These transits can speed up time quickly, opening new doors and closing chapters, we can find this happens abruptly and suddenly. This can sometimes be a shock to the system, and a huge reality check. But it is wise to use the eclipses to see transparently the shifts that need to happen. If you’ve been dragging your feet on making decisions on certain things, the eclipses will make those necessary changes for you!

Taurus is a consistent earth sign, and Scorpio is a deep feeling water sign. Taurus rules money, abundance, and self worth. Scorpio rules rebirth, transformation, and sex. The eclipses this year will ask us to evolve in all of these areas. We will be pushed to recognize which relationships and connections are worth the time and the effort. What goals and dreams need to be adjusted in order to build longevity? It’s time to create foundations that support our future and are not just momentarily satisfying. By the time the eclipse season is done at the end of the year, expect yourself to be completely transformed by these powerful transits.
Here are some ways to take full advantage of this year’s eclipses:
- Indulge in your self care! Because these eclipses will be highlighting the Taurus and Scorpio axis, taking care of yourself during these heavy shadows will be a priority. When things are feeling emotionally tough, make sure to indulge in what makes you feel most relaxed. Scheduling a massage, running yourself a luxurious bath, or treating yourself to your favorite meal is a great way to take care of yourself. The balance between self care and caring for others is important this eclipse season. We are creating strong foundations for ourselves for what’s to transpire!
- Invest in your long term future! Be open to new ways of making income and creating finances. Research new investing tools, cryptocurrency, and saving techniques. The Taurus energy being highlighted during this time will help us with creating financial sustainability. It’s time to start planning for the long term future! Know that the seeds you planted today will benefit you in the months to come.
- Be ready to release stagnation! These eclipses will bring to light where we have been avoiding decision making. If you’ve been on the fence about certain aspects of your life, you will run out of time with these eclipse cycles! See decisions as an opportunity for realignment rather than missing out on what’s being offered. Anything that is meant for you will find you, no matter what choice you make!
