How to make the most of this week 🎯 … With the first eclipse in Taurus this week, something’s at a breaking point. Maybe it’s time to power down and log off. Maybe a new life path feels impossible to ignore. Or maybe it’s time to hang out with your shadow self. Over the eclipse itself: rest, go dark, and let your schedule get eclipsed by as many naps or soaks as possible. Ground like it’s your full time job.
Tarot card of the week 🃏 … The 7 of Pentacles is a card of waiting, and fretting, after the hard labor is done. The seeds now must germinate in darkness. A fear of failure can haunt this card, but it also helps us let go of outcomes we can’t control. The 7 of Pentacles also corresponds to the last decan of Taurus, where Friday’s lunar eclipse takes place.
Affirmation of the week 😌 … Rest is not a luxury; it’s a necessity. Whenever my tank is low or my “check engine” light is on, I let my productivity get eclipsed by my need to recharge, refuel, and regenerate.

How this lunar eclipse in Taurus is impacting you 🌕 …
Aries & Aries Rising: If an income source encounters some turbulence, rest assured that something even more abundant will fill this space. The tighter the dragon clings to its bounty, the less it can enjoy its spoils. Trust in currency’s molten flows over this eclipse, and consider the immaterial riches that remain.
Taurus & Taurus Rising: As you shed old ways of being in the world, there’s no need to justify your raw and incandescent self to others. This lunar eclipse, it’s more than okay to feel unfinished. Adorn yourself in your own jagged edges and ripped seams: call it punk, and revel in the freedom of improvisation.
Gemini & Gemini Rising: It may feel like something’s gotta give in the balancing act between your daily hustle and the sleep you need. If you’ve been running on the fumes of fumes, your body will demand rest under no uncertain terms. Let the eclipse wash over you and imagine a comb smoothing your frayed nerves.
Cancer & Cancer Rising: Over this eclipse, you yearn for deeper interconnection. You crave feedback from your audiences. You want to test your masterpiece on the intersecting ecologies of the world. Trust that your creation will find its motif in the communal tapestry, and you will know exactly when to let your creation go.
Leo & Leo Rising: The lunar eclipse may confront you with a life path ascending into thorns and scrub. Instead of hacking your way through, perhaps another trail system beckons. For now, it’s more than okay to rest and meditate into the campfire flames. The way forward involves learning to feel okay in the uncertain yet fertile dark.
Virgo & Virgo Rising: This lunar eclipse may see you rewilding your wisdom pursuits. Perhaps you’ve taken a course of study or spiritual path as far as you can, and now you must confront the threshold of mystery again. Trust that new research questions will tantalize once more. For now, knowing only that you don’t know is a fruitful start.
Libra & Libra Rising: As Luna’s light dims and reddens, you dwell with your more stubborn hungry ghosts. Gaze back at them. Name them. Ask questions. It’s okay if you can’t relinquish them yet. As high-voltage as the energy feels right now, this work is the slowest dance. Hold compassionate space for the deep feelings that flow from this dislodging.
Scorpio & Scorpio Rising: This eclipse may confront you with a relationship, or a way of being in partnership, that needs to be transfigured. It doesn’t mean something will end, but you can bet that something adventurous is unfurling. Trust your hunger for connection right now. Whatever has to decay is simply preparing the ground.
Sagittarius & Sagittarius Rising: This eclipse may have you questioning your hours of sweat and tears, as you meet the fugue of frazzled exhaustion. Some season’s harvests are a bit scraggly, but the work is always sacred. Don’t be afraid to pivot and pour your time into another vessel. The calluses you’ve earned aren’t going anywhere.
Capricorn & Capricorn Rising: The lunar eclipse may have you yearning for more pleasure, more swooning, more belly laughs. Except the things that once delighted you are experiencing a temporary outage. Playing hard requires resting hard, and that’s exactly what eclipse season wants you to do. Rediscover the pleasure of sleeping in.
Aquarius & Aquarius Rising: The eclipse has you taking stock of the ancestral songs, traditions, and arts that support your wild flourishing. While this hunger to connect with your roots isn’t going anywhere, too much family or home time could feel overwhelming. While your threads tether to the deep past, only you decide how you weave them.
Pisces & Pisces Rising: As the Moon slips beyond the veil, you shatter the paradigms that no longer serve and strike brilliant new sparks. The harder task this eclipse season will be to let your mind fall quiet. As your brain flashes between a thousand fledgling insights, try to sit with just one of them. What happens when you give your ideas the space to grow?
