One of the most exciting cosmic events is coming up this week – the Solar Eclipse in Taurus on April 30th!
It just happens to be the first Solar Eclipse of the year, and it falls on a New Moon (solar eclipses actually always fall on a New Moon).
While it is only a Partial Solar Eclipse, it is powered by a vital and universal energy for us all – think along the lines of the powerful energy of many, many New Moons all together at once!
As I’m sure you know by now – New Moons = New Beginnings!
So Solar Eclipses = extra strong New Moons and Great New Beginnings!
When we have a New Moon with a Solar Eclipse it is even more exciting, and means bigger and better opportunities to create and manifest.
Solar eclipses happen when the Moon passes between the Sun and Earth, blocking sunlight from reaching our planet.
As a result, we see darkness as the Moon casts its shadow on Earth.
These moments of darkness that occur during an Eclipse are reflected within us in the form of hidden emotions.
It is an important time to connect with our shadow sides and allow our fears and anxieties to be brought to the surface for healing.
Sometimes an Eclipse like this can push you to look deeper into an area of discomfort for you, but you can be sure that it is for your highest good and the highest good of all concerned.
Eclipses can act like real wild cards or represent a pivotal point that implies permanent changes in our lives.
This particular Solar Eclipse occurs near the North Node – which means a push for us to achieve our path of true destiny.
This means that it is important to set intentions for what you really want to manifest.
The energy that occurs at this time is encouraging us to go with the flow of the Universe as we let go of any fears and concerns that arise and dissolve.
The Sun and Moon are also conjunct Uranus at this time.
Uranus is the planet of awakening, the unexpected, and the radical.
Its energy vibrates with the frequency of surprising events and great changes!
This fits well with the energy of the Solar Eclipse in terms of bringing you to new and unexpected places.
It could mean shocking news, radical change, or major changes in your perspectives, BUT – rest assured that even the most profound changes will always be for your true liberation, bringing you to a place of authenticity and happiness of the soul
This time, instead of focusing on specific material things you want to manifest, expand your mind to focus on the ENERGY of the kind of LIFE you want to MANIFEST.
Can you imagine a life of abundance, love, laughter, joy, and community?
Can you feel with your heart what it would be like to wake up every morning excited and happy for the expansive and beautiful life you lead?
The best way for you to take advantage of this energy around the Solar Eclipse is to think big.
Go beyond the car or the house or the tropical beach vacation you want.
Feel your entire existence as something magical expanding and manifesting!
What does it feel like to come into oneness with the universe? What does true spiritual transformation feel like?
It is much bigger than just dreaming to manifest material things into your 3D reality.
These are all wonderful too, but beyond that is the energy of true freedom of the soul!
Use these prompts to help you set expansive intentions for your life:
- How can you connect with your biggest dreams?
- What needs to change in your life in order to begin to truly reflect the desires of your heart?
- What steps do you need to take to get rid of anything that is still holding you back?
- What does your wildest dreams actually feel like in your body?
Once you have an idea of the kind of big, expansive intentions you want to set, use the following Crystal ritual to help you exploit their frequency.
Use your favorite crystal to perform this ritual.
You can connect with which crystal energies are calling you most at this time and trust that their unique properties are what you need most.
Sit quietly and relax with deep breaths. Hold your crystal in your hand.
Close your eyes and ask the crystal to help you connect with the frequency of divine unity and love.
The energy of the Universe that powers your greatest intentions.
Imagine a beautiful cleansing light emanating from this crystal in your hand.
Visualize it around your body as a bright, glowing energy that clears your energy field.
Let this energy flow through your entire body.
Feel how the power and energy of the crystal you hold is aligning you with your greatest intentions in the purest of ways.
Know that any fear or anxiety you have can be transmuted by this energy.
Sit here until it feels comfortable and aligned for you.
When you finish, state your intentions out loud again and close the ritual by repeating the following:
I am open to new ways of seeing the world. I am ready to enter my aligned soul path.
I surrender and release something that holds me back.
