This New Moon in Taurus on April 30th, 2022 (Beltane Eve) is also referred to as “The Black Moon”. A Black Moon is the second New Moon to occur in a single month, which is a rare occurrence. The Moon will also Eclipse the Sun giving us the first Solar Eclipse of the year.
A Solar Eclipse occurs when a portion of the Earth is blanketed in the shadow cast by the Moon, which partially or entirely blocks the Sun’s light. This only occurs when the Sun, Moon, and Earth are in alignment. Solar Eclipses coincide with New Moons. This Solar Eclipse takes place on the second New Moon of April. This is a rare occurrence because generally only one New Moon and one Full Moon take place each month. When we do have two New Moons within the same month, the second New Moon is referred to as a “Black Moon“. When we have two Full Moons within the same month, the second Full Moon is referred to as a “Blue Moon“. A Solar Eclipse will always amplify the energies of a New Moon tenfold.
While Solar Eclipses have a reputation for throwing us off of our game, this Solar Eclipse will be in Taurus, which will allow us to steadily move forward in a stable and practical manner with determination. The focus during this time may be on finances, home life, security, comforts, the future, and productivity. Solar Eclipses will start to affect your inner world before it starts to reflect in your outer world. Be prepared to fully step outside of your comfort zone and buckle up for the madness that transpires while we move through such profound shifts, alignments, and transformations!
New Moon always represents New Beginnings, the start of a new cycle, new doors opening, and it is the optimal time for manifestation magicks. However, with this New Moon falling under a Solar Eclipse, it is best to trust what the Universe has to offer and go with the flow.
Everyone will be affected by these incoming energies. Those with Taurus (as well as; Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius) in their Sun, Moon, Rising, Mercury, Venus, or Mars placements will be influenced heavier. Check your Natal Birth Chart.

It tells about the future on your spiritual life path based on what lessons you have learned in the past. It also points out what type of work needs to be done in order to work out our karmic debts in order to continue evolving in our spiritual journey. The South Node tells about what you bring into this existence, your gifts, where you come from, past lives, your comfort zone, and patterns and themes from your childhood.
