This week, we have a rare and powerful line up in the sky!

You've heard the phrase, "Once in a Blue Moon", right?  It refers to a rare event, but in astrology, a Blue Moon is when two Full Moons occur in the same calendar month. 

So, what happens when two New Moons occur in the same month? It's also a rare event but doesn't have a trendy nickname. In fact, it sounds rather ominous! The second New Moon in a calendar month is called a Black Moon. 

Not only do we have a rare Black Moon in Taurus on April 30th, but it's also a solar eclipse! The addition of eclipse energy to a New Moon kicks it up a notch and adds to its manifestation potential. The catch is that it also adds a little bit of chaos to the mix as well. 

So, if you want to do a New Moon ritual, then whatever you ask for can manifest quickly, but it can also bring about fast changes that you may not be completely prepared to make. 

Eclipses are known as the "scissors of fate" because they tend to bring about sudden changes or endings. If you've been procrastinating, hesitating, or burying your head in the sand when it comes to making changes, then eclipses will often cut out the distraction that's been keeping you from living your best life. 

Also, if you've strayed too far from your life purpose or path, then the changes an eclipse will bring often serve to put you back on the road to your destiny. 

Because change can be difficult, especially the sudden changes of an eclipse, you may feel a little sad. It's ok to grieve but letting go of what's not meant for you is part of the lesson eclipses are trying to teach you. 

Since this eclipse is in the sign of Taurus, you'll want to look at what house Taurus and Venus (its ruling planet) are located in your natal chart to determine how the eclipse may personally affect you. You can create a free natal chart at or book a personal reading with me HERE.

Themes around the Black Moon and eclipse may include money, career, love, beauty, relationships, self-love, values, and personal appearance. As if this weren't powerful enough, Pluto, the planet of rebirth and transformation, will be going retrograde on April 29th. Since Pluto also brings transformation by shedding what you no longer need, you may receive information that's been previously hidden about a problem or wound you've been trying to heal. 

I'm wishing you lots of manifestation magic, my friends!
