30 April is the day that marks a rare astronomical phenomenon: a black moon, i.e. a moon that cannot be seen at a certain time. The black moon is the second new moon to appear in a calendar month.
On 30 April we will experience a rare and important event in the pastel-colored skies of spring: the New Moon is the second new moon of a calendar month and brings with it incredible energy, while the solar eclipse heralds the beginning of a chapter full of huge changes.
After a month of being under the influence of impatient Aries, the Universe is telling us to get ready to step into the calm vibrations of Taurus.
Throughout this period there is a divine power over us that makes us believe in ourselves more than ever. We have the possibility to take advantage of opportunities that arise and make important changes in our lives. What’s more, Pluto is in retrograde on April 29 – clearly, the heavens want us to know that life could change in a fundamental way at the end of the month.
30 April: an incredibly important day for all of us
30 April is the day that marks a rare astronomical phenomenon. The Black Moon is the second new moon to appear in a calendar month.
What does the Black Moon mean?
While a full moon occurs when the Earth-facing side is completely illuminated by sunlight, a new moon occurs when the Earth-facing side is completely covered by the shadow of the Earth. In general, two new moons occur in one calendar month every 3 years. We have not had a Black Moon since August 2020.
How April 30 will affect us: solar eclipse and New Moon in Taurus
Twice a year, a set of lunar and solar eclipses (they always occur in pairs) shine a light over our souls and serve to correct the course of life if we feel lost on the path we are on.
Lunar eclipses are usually a great time to let go of all that is old, while solar eclipses symbolize a new beginning and a new chapter in our lives.
What does an eclipse in the sign of Taurus mean? A few important characteristics to focus on during this period:
- material needs;
Energy changes during the solar eclipse
During a solar eclipse, the Sun is temporarily obscured by the Moon. Astrologically speaking, the Sun stands for our self-identity, our health and vitality. The Universe advises us to expect a temporary dip into intense chapters of our lives during this time. Regardless of which sign we were born in, this period prompts us all to seek truth from within.
Solar eclipses open new chapters. They come with unpredictable moments, with newness, with unexpected changes. It is best to wait and see what plan the Universe has in store for us. It is not advisable to intervene because we are only wasting precious time fighting against our written destiny.
The more patience we have, the easier it will be for us to accept what we are experiencing, to get used to the transformation we are experiencing and to adapt to the new life. The Universe is working for our good – it’s time to understand this. If the doors don’t open, then they are not meant for us.
30 April: the day we detach from everything
The Universe is forcing us to let go of what no longer serves us. The higher self is most important this season. While sudden endings are difficult to accept, we must understand that life is never linear, nor easy. Its cyclical waves remind us that magical new beginnings await. This is just one chapter ending, and so we must prepare for another – new, exciting, beautiful, challenging and full of wonderful lessons.
