New Moon 20th April 2023: solar eclipse & bounce on the nodes!

On the 20th April, there is a solar eclipse during the new moon. An intriguing astrological move between 2 signs shows a double side NM, sun and moon bouncing from Aries to Taurus. So let’s start from the beginning.

A solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes between earth and the sun, thereby obscuring the view of the Sun from a small part of the Earth, totally or partially. Such an alignment occurs approximately every six months, during the eclipse season in its new moon phase, when the moon's orbital plane is closest to the plane of the earth's orbit.

Zodiac of the 20th April (6h16): one face of the coin!

During the eclipse sun and moon are located at the last degree of Aries, so in a cardinal cross (Aries-Libra-Cancer-Capricorn). As the sun will disappear for a while, the moon will absorb a part of its dynamic, to let us a bit incomplete but aware that our unconscious will react. There might be a time of feeling lost in the world or without landmarks. If the passage throughout the sign of Mars has been successful, one can pick up the fruits of his/her inner personal work. There’s no need to panic if we feel dizzy, sick or on a strange mood. This state of mind and body might align itself with the Schumann resonance(the new vibrations of the earth).

To stay in sync with the planetary composition and frequencies the human body has an auto correct system that can re-calibrate to the environment when needed. To me, the fact that an eclipse shows an alignment can also shows a special alignment within our body for this super NM.

From an evolutionary perspective, the cardinal cross reflects the need to implement change and forward momentum in our lives. In other words, the cardinal archetype symbolizes the need to initiate change. As the NM+eclipse will be at the end of the cardinal cross, does it mean that the changes initiated in our civilization will open to a real transformation?

Just one minute before midnight, we can see the sun and the moon entering Taurus making a new conjunction: sun 0-1°,moon 9-10°.

The NM is now located in a fixed cross (Taurus-Scorpio- Leo-Aquarius) and the most important is that sun and moon surrounds the nodes. The North Node is in between , conjunct birth sun and moon, so the South node in Scorpio will be opposite. In Taurus we also find the conjunction Mercury-Uranus.

Is there a meaning for this amazing bounce?

It is not easy to predict or decipher what should happen in a double side NM. But we are pretty sure that a great transformation will occur, changing minds and opening to new level of awareness. A part of our past has to be buried and not kept in mind. Let’s be ready for an inner revolution, and accepting a not doing of believing the media. Let’s trust our intuition, our dreams, our visions, our path. The best is yet to come, we all know it although the propaganda, carved in human brains by the fake news industry, wants to make us believe the reverse.

Osho Zen tarot:

The central figure in this card sits atop the vast flower of the void, and holds the symbols of transformation–the sword that cuts through illusion, the snake that rejuvenates itself by shedding its skin, the broken chain of limitations, and the yin/yang symbol of transcending duality. One of its hands rests on its lap, open and receptive. The other reaches down to touch the mouth of a sleeping face, symbolizing the silence that comes when we are at rest.

This is a time for a deep let-go. Allow any pain, sorrow, or difficulty just to be there, accepting its “facticity”. It is very much like the experience of Gautam Buddha when, after years of seeking, he finally gave up knowing there was nothing more that he could do. That very night, he became enlightened. Transformation comes, like death, in its own time. And, like death, it takes you from one dimension into another.

Karma cleansing oblige: the past is open to the future!

So, let yourself change, grow, learn, express and move on.
