The Solar Eclipse (New Moon) takes place in the earthy sign of Taurus in the early evening (US), on May 9. Interestingly enough, all the personal planets (Sun, Moon, Venus, Mercury and Mars) will be stacked up in one sign. This is a rare occurrence to say the least. In addition to this, there is just one obstacle ( square) and opposition in the cosmos on this day. This will keep things hopping as well as interesting as we all scurry to keep it all together. The day is focused on the stellium in Taurus, opposing Saturn in Scorpio. We’re sure to see some interaction here, with people going back and forth. During this period we find ourselves at odds between doing what we want to do versus doing what we feel or think others want us to do. It boils down to a clash of the will. Thee will be pressure, however no pain no gain.
