Solar Eclipse In Taurus: April 29, 2014 – Effects By House

taurus womanThe solar eclipse takes place at 8 degrees Taurus, just after midnight on April 29th. Many will benefit from this eclipse. People with Pluto in Virgo between 5 and 15 degrees (born in the late 1950’s and early to mid 1960’s) will certainly be energized, in a way I think they’ll like.

The eclipse will be remarkable for a number of reasons.  It’s conjunct Mercury, supported by exalted Jupiter in Cancer and Pluto in Capricorn.

Saturn in Scorpio supports Pluto in Capricorn by mutual reception. That’s what I call, “hard to kill”!

Virgo,in general looks good here, by element and also because ruler Mercury is involved.  The energy is a little dense for Gemini, the other Mercury-ruled sign.  They also have no support by element so Virgo wins in this circumstance.

The Cardinal Grand Cross will be in effect at this time, but it does not impact the eclipse (aka New Moon).

There’s also a broad Grand Trine in the Water signs, so all in all, I am expecting a good run out of this.

We set intentions under New Moons. The Moon’s sign should be considered when setting your intention. Here are some ideas for each of the houses:

  • New Moon in the 1st house –  Present a solid front, value yourself.
  • New Moon in the 2nd house – Bank some money, feel solid about your own value.
  • New Moon in the 3rd house – Be a reliable neighbor who people can trust.
  • New Moon in the 4th house – Stabilize your family, secure your home, beautify it.
  • New Moon in the 5th house – Gift a child, by shoring up their self-esteem. Create art.
  • New Moon in the 6th house – Be a reliable worker of solid value.
  • New Moon in the 7th house – Invest in relationships for the long haul.
  • New Moon in the 8th house – Make a will.  Share resources.
  • New Moon in the 9th house – Invest in education. Solidify your beliefs.
  • New Moon in the 10th house – Set an example for others by your visible self-esteem.
  • New Moon in the 11th house – Be a friend of value.
  • New Moon in the 12th house – Donate food or some kind of durable goods to people in need.

Where does the eclipse fall in your chart?  Set your intention here!

  1. In my 10th, as well. I’ve been through so much shit in the past few years, but I’m still effing standing. Damn right, I have self-esteem!

  2. I think I would read it as in the seventh house for me even though it will be 3 degrees from the cusp. I think it will be positive for those around me as I have been gathering strength within myself since the Solar Eclipse in Scorpio on November 3. It was conjunct my Ascendant. I will have more to give to others.

  3. Almost exactly on my MC. I’ve read the eclipse is at 8*52′ Taurus, my MC is at 8*54′ – hoping for new good starts in my career, public self, energy output into the world. 🙂

  4. Its conjunct by ex bf descendant we have been on a break now for a bit over a month- i know i shouldt really care but does this imply a new realationship for him?

  5. I just read through all of the houses and decided to focus on all aspects mentioned, for each house. It seems to suit the direction I’ve been headed.

  6. Thanks, Elsa! I’ve been a long time follower of your blog, but never posted. If you read the advice for the houses straight down, like a list, it sounds like the commandments for a happy life! 🙂

  7. yup, this virgo has had to cut through alot of crap. Much of it nonsense. Good to finally be left with more wheat than chaff. Avoiding, the over glutinous strains of wheat though. That’ll do me in every time. It’s all puffed up and makes me gassy. It just don’t digest.

  8. I am very new to astrology, two months in, and this happens in my eighth house “make a will” eeeeek. Does this mean I’m doomed?? slightly nervous.

  9. This eclipse with be an Exact Conjunction with my natal South node in my 1st house and degrees past my ascendant.
    Not sure what this could bring, but I suspect it has to do with major change coming!

  10. Hello Elsa, great articles. I live in CO too. I’m a Leo/Virgo. This eclipse falls at the beginning of my solar 10th house, squaring my natal sun in Leo at 9, and on my natal chiron. I am starting nursing classes! So if looking at it from solar: beginning of something that would help me heal my career? YAY… and looking it at it from my asc. I am Virgo 8 asc; so this is a nice trine, from my the ninth (investing in education and solidifying beliefs) Awesome!

  11. My 3rd house cusp is 8 degrees 51 minutes. So it’s right there. 🙂 My 8 degree Pisces sun in the first and my 6 degrees Virgo n.node/Pluto in the 7th might feel something.

  12. It’ll be my birthday. I have to say the last time there was an eclipse on my birthday(about 18 yrs ago I think) I heard that my Dad was dying so I’m a little apprehensive …. I have an 8th/9th house Sun so whatever I hear I know from experience it’ll make me sit up.

  13. The New Moon will be in my 10th house conjunct my natal North Node. I like Sarah’s idea about integrating all of the houses, especially because of the natal North Node conjunction. After deep exploration of my Scorpionic Moon (and South Node!), maybe this eclipse is where I consciously begin my journey “northward”. Sure feels like it!

  14. New Moon in 7th (using equal houses) trine Natal south node/Mars/Venus. FINALLY cleaned up the many boxes and clutter in my place and decided to rent extra storage so that my car doesn’t get dinged in the parking lot anymore. Cleaning up the past, Thank God! I was wondering how all this was going to affect my chart/life.

    Grand Cross has been on my angles for weeks past and weeks to come… felt paralyzed but broke through and now energized.

    PS Was going to move house, and went on a zigzag roller coaster with a quintuple Gemini. I just can’t do Gemini energy (sorry Geminis!!) And people think I’M changeable! Re-reading Kathleen Burt’s essay re Gemini really helped. And of course, this blog!!

  15. It is in my house along with my North Node. It will be an extra big Spring cleanout-I can feel it-I live in Evergreen, Elsa.

  16. It’ll be in my 4th house as well. I need to do a lot of weeding inside and out but my allergies flair when I do.

  17. Hi. I have a first house taurus moon, Scorpio sun, 11* Aries ascendent, 21* degree venus in Libra, chiron return in the 12th, and pluto, uranus in 6th house Virgo (born in 1964). Do you think the universe is trying to tell me something ? 🙂
    Thank you for the post.

  18. This is funny, earlier today I donated some money to the local church and now I am reading your advice which says “donate durable goods to people in need”. I am going to donate some old clothes as well these days. Last May I gave away half of my closet. But I didn’t know eclipses in 12th have to do with donating because the one last May triggered so many other 12th house issues for me. I am a Gemini, of course.

  19. it was in my 8th. i found out on the 28th that my 9 week old fetus had no heartbeat. on the 29th i let it go.
    as far as intentions go, i’m directly on the path of trying again. and appreciating the wonderful children i already have.

    yeah, it’s pretty powerful. and i can see a lot of positive elements in the patterns around this one… these eclipses have cycles and we’re in the midst of an interesting set.

    but holy heck it’s amazing how attached we can get to possibilities so quickly.

    (i’ll be ok, no worries.)
