New Moon/Solar Eclipse in Taurus: April 30 2022
Astrologically speaking, the New Moon is the time to set intentions for what you want to attract into your life. To plant the seeds of what you want to bring into your life. As the Sun and the Moon align at the same degree of the Zodiac, the yin and yang become one. Your intentions are planted into a fertile cosmic soil. The Universe is listening.
This New Moon is also a Solar Eclipse. The Sun and the Moon come together on April 30 at 1:28 p.m. PDT. If you're a risk-taker at heart, it just might be THE day of the year to set intentions for attracting financial prosperity, increasing patience and perseverance, and bringing contentment and sensuality into your life. It's also a fantastic New Moon to ask for improvements in your love life.
This New Moon is very well positioned! Venus, the planet of love and money, is conjunct Jupiter and Neptune. "Luck, abundance, and soulmate connections," say these planets.
So why do I say, "if you're a risk-taker at heart?" In my experience, intentions set on a Solar Eclipse can come to life FAST! But also not in the way you expect. It can be a wild ride, with you holding on for dear life and perhaps even screaming your head off at some unexpected turns.
And, if you're ready to ride this very powerful celestial wave, then this New Moon is for you. Quantum leaps are possible when intentions are set on a New Moon that is also a Solar Eclipse.
You're not limited to the intention-setting topics I suggest in this post.. Setting intentions for anything you want to attract into your life is fair game on a New Moon. But, intentions for the matters ruled by Taurus get an extra boost.
If you're new to working with New Moon energies, you may be interested in my post "Setting Intentions on a New Moon: Why and How".
- Set your intentions soon after the new Moon, within 8 hours if you can (within 24 hours will still work). Set aside about 30 minutes for this.
- If you are setting intentions for financial success, you may want to light a green candle. A pink candle will work well for love and romance, and a red candle for passion and sensuality.
- Focus on your intentions. Truly FEEL them. Then write them down and keep them. Visualize what it will feel like when you receive what you’re calling into your life. Visualize yourself financially abundant. There are no money worries. You have enough money to support you and your goals. To spread around. To spend on your loved ones. To give to your favourite charity. What would it feel like? FEEL that emotion.
Sample intentions might include:
“I want to easily find myself making more money.”
“I want to attract and purchase the right car/house/____ at the price I can afford.”
“I want to be more patient with ______.”
“I want to easily find myself relying on my own efforts for success”.
“I want to enjoy and appreciate my life”.
“I want to easily be able to focus on the good things in my life”.
“I want to be find myself enjoying the sensual side of life in a happy way”.
“I want to be able to bring more sensuality into my relationship with ___________”.
"I want to be easily be able to make decisions that are aligned with my values".
To Go Deeper:
We all have the ability to draw what we desire to us, the ability to manifest the future we want. We don't always use it, because we don't know how!
We spend years in school, learning science and literature and many other subjects. Then we spend years developing skills we need for our career.
And yet, the skill to manifest the future we want? For most of us, we didn't learn it growing up - but we can certainly learn it as adults.

I still can’t believe it. Truly, I’ve been talking about moving/buying a house for decades but never felt it was within my reach. I think having those specific intentions, written clearly helped me to focus on achieving those goals. Nothing dropped in my lap and I had to make the effort but rather than having to walk the whole way, a moving walkway appeared at just the right moments to help me over some challenging spots. From now on I’m going to work WITH the Universe!
