The Annular Solar Eclipse today occurs at 19° 31′ of Taurus in the Lunar South Node in Taurus in a New Moon in Taurus. The sun, the moon, Venus, Mars, and Mercury are all transiting the constellation of Taurus, challenging our sense of stability and resistance to change financially, emotionally, and in relationships. The New Moon in Taurus and the Lunar South Node in Taurus call us to let go of all those possessions that give us a sense of false self-worth and self-confidence materialized in tangible things: our jobs, our physical homes, our money, even those relationships that work as possessions. Further details specific to the planets mentioned can be found here.

What called my attention were the Sabian Symbols by Dane Rudhyar. Since the eclipse is at 19° 31′ of Taurus, the corresponding Sabian Symbol is Phase 50 (Taurus 20°), which I quote hereby:

FIRST HEMICYCLE: The Process of Individualization

ACT I: DIFFERENTIATION

SCENE FOUR: CONFIRMATION

Phase 50 (Taurus 20°): WISPS OF WINGLIKE CLOUDS STREAMING ACROSS THE SKY. 

Keynote: The awareness of spiritual forces at work.

Any emergence of life potentialities from the depth of the vast Unconscious is answered by the spiritual activity of superconscious forces in a cosmic kind of antiphony. The individual who has taken a new step in his evolution should look for the “Signature” of the divine Powers confirming his progress. It may reveal the meaning of what is to come next. The “winglike clouds” may also symbolize the presence of celestial beings (devas, angels) blessing and subtly revealing the direction to take, the direction of “the wind of destiny”.

This is the fifth stage of the tenth five-fold sequence. It concludes a process, having experienced which the individual should find himself more securely established in his own original nature, receiving the BLESSINGS of super-natural forces.

Each of us will experience an urge to let go of everything that we believed was giving us a strong foundation under our feet but, in fact, was taking us away from our true nature and our true purpose. Eclipses always remind us of our life mission and give us a chance to connect to our true path. This time, we are called to be our true selves. Be yourself shamelessly. Be your true self and OWN IT.
