Romantic partnerships are not the only relationships in our lives (just the ones we’re most likely to be obsessed about). What might the upcoming lunar eclipse have to say about your relationships with family members, friends, colleagues, and casual acquaintances?
By all means, at this New Moon, do some rituals and set intentions around attracting more money into your life.But to focus only on money is to miss the larger point of Taurus, and perhaps of whatever crisis in which you find yourself. And the larger point is the need for self-sufficiency….
The cycle of eclipses moving through the houses of the horoscope presents opportunities for understanding and healing.
There is an opportunity in this eclipse that’s characteristic of eclipses in general and Scorpio eclipses in particular. It’s the opportunity to transform yourself into something even more formidable than a crafty serpent: a fire-breathing dragon.

I admire the strategy.
Astrology works because moments in time, like seeds, contain the prescription for what they will become.
