The golden moments in the stream of life rush past us, and we see nothing but sand; the angels come to visit us, and we only know them when they are gone. George Eliot
Every event that a man would master must be mounted on the run, and no man ever caught the reins of a thought except as it galloped past him. Oliver Wendell Holmes
I am not a speed-reader. I am a speed understander. Isaac Asimov
All human joys are swift of wing, For heaven doth so allot it; That when you get an easy thing, You find you haven’t got it. Eugene Field
The cloud never comes in the quarter of the horizon from which we watch for it. Elizabeth Gaskell
Every cloud has a silver lining. Proverb
A great wind is blowing, and that gives you either imagination or a headache. Catherine the Great
The annular solar eclipse (solar eclipses are always on a new Moon) in Taurus is the second of three consecutive eclipses. So, with this eclipse, we are half-way through this current eclipse season. The last eclipse was a lunar eclipse (these always fall on the full moon and occur approx every six months) on the 26th April in Australia and the 25th in the United States. The next lunar eclipse is on May 25.
This week's solar eclipse falls on May 10 in Australia and May 9 in the United States. This is a south node solar eclipse, meaning it's a time to analyse what we don't want in our lives, to find what we need to release or let go of and to make plans for the future. Being in Taurus, this is a good time to make some positive affirmations around money along with issues of self worth. This is a very Taurean new Moon, with Mars, the south node, Mercury, the Moon, the Sun and Pallas Athena all in Taurus. Venus, the ruler of Taurus, is in Taurus right up until the eclipse when it slips into Gemini.
This eclipse can bring up issues from last November as this eclipse is a reversal of that eclipse. This is a chance to see how you're going in terms of what began or what was happening then.
The Sabian Symbol for the eclipse is Taurus 20: Wisps Of Clouds, Like Wings, Are Streaming Across The Sky.
