Taurus Super Moon

12 Nov

abundance

The Moon is full in the sign of the Bull on November 14th and it is a Super Moon, one we haven’t seen the likes of in nearly 70 years! It will be big and bright and shining a lot of light, illuminating dark places. Both Taurus and Scorpio are signs that deal with security; emotional and material security. We must reconcile which things we are to hold on to and what we need to let go of. Situations dealing with what we’re comfortable with, what or who we trust, issues of life and death, who we love, our possessions, resources, finances and the things that we value will come up now. We may see a turning point in some area that we’ve been plodding along in or a project that we’ve been building up. Taurus is an Earth sign and is also associated with gratitude, Gaia and her resources; these things are highlighted now. During this time of year, we’re getting ready to celebrate Thanksgiving here in the U.S. honoring Earth’s abundance and the things that we’re thankful for.
Uranus is connecting with this lunation suggesting that there are changes and adjustments to be made. This may inject an element of surprise and unpredictability which may not be welcomed as some of our security buttons are being pushed; perhaps even a security breach or a breach of trust. Alternatively, there could be a shake up to a situation that’s been stuck and stagnant. It may also involve new groups, new friends or new technology. This influence can threaten something stable or energize a stale situation. Obviously, this may cause some discomfort even when these changes are the very thing we’ve wanted and needed.
Venus, the ruler of this Taurus Full Moon is in conservative Capricorn. This has us feeling cautious in matters of love and money. We value things of substance or things that are traditional and that stand the test of time. We’re willing to invest in the long term now. We are not into frivolous spending or casual relationships right now. We can also be made aware of the responsibilities that we have to our loved ones and how some of these important relationships help to shape our lives.
At the time of this Full Moon, Mercury and Juno conjunct in Sagittarius connecting with Mars in Aquarius; again, highlighting the importance of meaningful relationships. This may mean that speaking our truth and engaging in honest conversations in regards to relationships, partnerships and agreements has potential to create spontaneous actions, unexpected moves or a show of independence. Expanding our perception and making future plans could also mean a change of direction.
Neptune is conjunct the South Node in Pisces suggesting that we are letting go of old illusions, mistakes, blind spots and escape routes. This is an emotional process.
Chiron in Pisces also connects favorably with this lunation providing some compassionate healing and to ease our suffering a bit.
Jupiter is moving in to contact Saturn in Sagittarius, Jupiter’s ruler. This is a positive interchange and stabilizing influence. These two social planets will be in close proximity into 2017. We can be cautiously optimistic and able to work on opportunities for growth. There could be are career opportunities or opportunities for advancement that also comes with responsibility. We may need to evaluate options and make long range decisions. This also suggests that we are more conservative and cautious, cutting back, narrowing our options -also in regard to our associations and agreements. It also points to our growing responsibility to conserve and to increase the balance and even it up.

Jupiter in Libra is also closing in on a square to Pluto in Capricorn. This is an important aspect that doesn’t happen often. We’ll see these two go at it again in the coming months. This is one of the major shapers and /or players of 2017.

Jupiter is a social planet dealing with subjects like our world view, opinions, beliefs, religion, sense of right and wrong and the Law. Libra deals with fairness and equality and balance. Pluto is a slower moving, generational planet and a force that pushes for evolution and brings forth powerful transformations in whatever it comes into contact with; Capricorn is ruled by Saturn and represents the structure and framework of our society, the rules, authority and what is considered to be socially acceptable. These energies squaring off will challenge and transform some of these areas and change the social fabric within our society for generations. We must be mindful and try to take the high road, to be fair and inclusive and to co-create a world that we all want to live in.

We’re being faced with a challenge to reform structures and even out the playing field. Jupiter in Libra asks that we have faith in others and to give them a fair shake without labels and with more tolerance. The flip side of that is that we can become overly judgmental or excessively moral and righteous. Follow the golden rule and treat others how you want to be treated! It’s pretty simple. This is the right thing to do as one human being to another and deep down we we know this to be true.

Jupiter in Libra square Pluto in Capricorn wants us to have fair dealings that are mutually beneficial; there is an increasing opposition that challenges a consolidation of power and dares a destruction to things that may seem to have been set in stone and a reformation, a new framework upon which we build our lives and our society. Faith in others, tolerance and an increase in peace and harmony can stimulate the rebuilding of structures, rules, policies, etc. We need agreements and rules we can all live with and must be able to see things from another side, or to seek alternatives.

On another level, we can experience growth and opportunity through our associations and we’re able to outgrow and move beyond other relationships or patterns of relating. Our contact with others can increase now and we can be pushed to eliminate any blocks or resistance. The relationships and agreements we enter into now have the power to change our lives for better or worse.

Jupiter in Libra is also a very creative influence and pitted with Pluto in Capricorn, we could be rehabbing, recycling and up-cycling. We want to improve and refine, turning trash to treasure and making shit shine.

New Moon Blessings to ALL and Happy Thanksgiving!

Taurus New Moon

3 May

green picThis New Moon on May 6th is in the Earthy sign of Taurus and it makes several aspects this month. This could be an enlivened or eventful time in regard to our sense of security and worth.

Aside from money and values, Taurus is in charge of the five senses; this is when we want most to appeal to our senses and indulge; to revel in how beautiful something looks, feels, smells, tastes and sounds.   We may want nothing more than to cozy up in the comfort of beautiful surroundings and feel our Earthly connection.  This is a great time for “Earthing”; that is, to walk on the Earth barefoot; I never could keep shoes on my Taurus baby outside in the back yard; or perhaps you could plant some beautiful flowers or delicious vegetables.  It doesn’t matter what you choose; our rapport and attunement to nature and gratitude for all its abundance is what matters now.

Venus is the ruler of this New Moon and she’s on her home turf now in Taurus.  With Venus now in her own sign, we very much want to feel good. We’re able to attract abundance. We just need to watch that our contentment doesn’t turn to complacency or that we don’t overindulge or over-spend.  We want to feel valued and appreciated and to also show our love and affection to others.  We may be creating something of value or beauty now; or perhaps there could be appreciation and accolades coming your way.  Venus is also engaged in a tense aspect with her lover Mars so at this time they don’t see eye to eye and one may have to give way to the other. In other words, what we want and how we go and get what we want is in need of some tweaking.  Someone may try to force their opinion or it may be that we must now make adjustments in order to align our values with our emerging truth.  We may have to ask ourselves if what we’re doing for money or security is in line with the truth in our hearts and if we are honest about our intentions and motivations.  We may be rethinking and re-prioritizing.

At this time, we now have FIVE planets retrograde.   It is very rare to have so many planets retrograde at once.  This means that there is a lot of review, backtracking and covering old ground at this time with very little forward movement.  This has been the theme all this year.  The Universe has been repeatedly making us aware that there is a lot of work to do; and that we should be spending this time problem solving, troubleshooting, improving systems and tying up loose ends not trying to gain ground.  We have to get things right before we can move on to the next level.

The planets that are currently retrograde are:

Mercury the Messenger in Taurus ; giving us the opportunity to revisit any financial plans and to rethink our security needs, Mars the Motivator in Sagittarius allowing us to pursue things that have meaning for us and that are more in alignment with our emerging truth, Generous Jupiter in Virgo providing an overview of how the pieces fit, what needs to be fixed and how to do it, Saturn the Manifestor in Sagittarius limiting anything extraneous so we can narrow our focus and Pluto the Transformer in Capricorn eliminating what holds us back and assisting us in recognizing our own power and the reforming, recycling or resurrecting of structures, policies or roles.

Mercury Rx in Taurus is very close to this New Moon giving us time to review our thoughts on security and financial planning. We may need to revisit the details of an account or an association. People and relationships from the past could crop up now.   It is also possible to attract money at this time.  We may also be thinking about the things and people we love and about what is important to us and the steps we need to take in order to be remain or become sound.

Jupiter in Virgo and Pluto in Capricorn both make a favorable aspect with this New Moon.  We can use this time to problem solve, get organized, learn and perfect a skill, do home improvement, improve diet and exercise routine, promote services, improve systems, see what needs doing and remove any obstacles.

On another level this is also about the removal of walls built and moving beyond any beliefs and feelings of insecurity or inferiority and experiencing a sense of self-worth.

The New Moon forms a tense aspect with Saturn Rx in Sagittarius suggesting that in order to feel comfortable and secure that we are going to have to cut back on any excesses and indulgences. We may have to make adjustments in our wants and our priorities.  This may require a tighter budget or stricter diet. It may be obvious that our schedules are full and responsibilities are many.  It may also suggest that what we’re doing to provide comfort and security may have to be tweaked so that we’re in alignment with something that provides more meaningful experiences as well as a solid future.  This may have us testing our faith or certain beliefs and assumptions and reviewing our ideas and thoughts on security and what achievement, accomplishment and success mean to us.  The biggest question to ask is, Is it true for me?

This Taurus New Moon may help us to get a handle on just what it is they we find valuable and what we need to feel secure.

Blessings of Abundance to ALL at this Taurus New Moon!

Taurus Full Moon

24 Oct

worth

Taurus Full Moon

The Taurus Full Moon on October 27th is a time of the year when we must reconcile our need for acquisition and consumption with our need to let go.  There may be much that we’ve been holding on to in the name of ‘security’ or comfort and the time has come to release it.  It may be something material, a relationship, an idea or even a habit or belief that no longer serves us.  Be brave.  Confront it. Let it go.  Both Taurus (Moon) and Scorpio (Sun) deal with issues of security; Taurus deals with material security and Scorpio emotional security.  At the time of this Taurus Full Moon, it may come to light the things that we’ve been holding onto that must be released.

What issues may have come up for you? 

This Full Moon may also mark a turning point in any financial matters as both Taurus and Scorpio are money signs.  Worth equals wealth ~ know that YOU ARE WORTHY!

Saturn the Task Master and Manifestor makes his presence felt at this Full Moon.  Saturn in Sagittarius has us consolidating, curbing our enthusiasm, slowing our growth, focusing on our future, limiting our opportunities and any excess while testing our faith. It seems we’ll need to make adjustments accordingly where our finances are concerned.  We’re now shouldering more responsibility and there is a need to cut back.  It is a time to slow down, take deliberate action and to have more meaningful experiences.

This Full Moon is also in a favorable aspect with Neptune in Pisces giving potential to create our vision slowly, one step at a time or on the flip side, to unravel everything that’s been built.

It is also a time to value, appreciate and marvel at the mystery of the interconnectedness and oneness in ALL.  Create something Magickal!

Taurus is ruled by the love planet Venus, so issues surrounding relationships and appreciation continue to surface so that we may reconcile them and put them to rest once and for all.  Right now Venus is in Virgo, not her favorite sign to be in and she’s in opposition to Chiron in Pisces and quincunx to Uranus in Aries.  We may be made aware of underlying psychological issues that affect our relationships with others and to ourselves and how we may begin to heal. By bringing this unpleasantness to awareness, being present with it and sending it healing energy and  love we can break free from feelings of insecurity, inferiority, shame and a lack of self-worth that keep us imprisoned. Let go of the need to be overly critical or desiring perfection. We can help the process of healing by realizing that we are all one and we are all in this together.  This is hard work but we are changing the world one person at a time starting with ourselves! Healing ourselves and how we relate to one another helps heal the world. It is time to move beyond some of these things that may cause stress, anxiety or depression that then finally manifest in physical disease. Dis-ease!

When my Taurus Sun son was very small, just starting to talk, he would spread himself on the sofa and frantically yell, “I’m stuck! I’m stuck! I’m stuck! I would have to drop everything I was doing and help him get himself ‘unstuck’, peeling him from the sofa and then I’d reassure him that he wasn’t stuck at all.  I would show him how easily he could ‘free’ himself. After several months he finally outgrew that.  At the time of this Full Moon ask yourself where you have been stuck.  Often it goes on without realizing it because it’s been hidden from our awareness, operating unconsciously. Commit to letting go and freeing yourself.

Blessings to ALL at this Full Moon!

P.S The time of the Taurus Full Moon is a good time to show gratitude and appreciation.  Big Love and Big Thanks to all of you that read and subscribe.  I would soooo appreciate it if you would share the love and spread the word.

Shine Bright and Reach for the Starz!!

New Moon in Taurus

15 May

Taurus New Moon

This New Moon in the early hours of May 18 is in determined sign of Taurus. The polarity of Taurus/Scorpio emphasizes our security needs.  Taurus needing material security and comfort while Scorpio has emotional security needs.  Both signs are also related to finances. Lately we’ve been having the Full Moon before the New Moon so it seems that there are things that we’ll need to uncover, become aware of or finish up before planting our seeds of the New Moon.  What I mean by this is that we have twelve signs in the Zodiac making six polarities. Typically, we have the New Moon in its respective sign and then about two weeks later we’ll have the Full Moon in its opposite sign but this is not the case lately.

Taurus rules over money, values and the material, but it also rules over things such as pleasure, comfort, joy, love, appreciation, affection and gratitude.  It is also about self-love, and self-worth.  It may be time to show your appreciation, love, affection or gratitude or maybe it’s time some came your way.  If you’ve felt unloved or unappreciated, consider how you feel about yourself and try being kinder, gentler and more loving to yourself.  Try also to have an attitude of gratitude for the things that you do have. It could be that some of the insights received at the Scorpio Full Moon made you aware of an imbalance between emotional and material needs. You can now allow yourself feel worthy enough to allow those things into your life that you may have been missing or that you feel are lacking.

Perhaps there were some long standing issues illuminated at the light of the last Scorpio Full Moon. Some of the things that came up may have had to do with letting go, or possibly the revival or resurrection of something considered to be a dead or resolved issue.  Situations involving finances and resources that are jointly owned, or perhaps with insurance, taxes, wills and estates could have come up.  Scorpio also rules over the deeper and darker aspects of life.  Matters of life and death. That is why words like transformation and intensity are always associated with Scorpio, once we have waded in some of the murkier waters of Scorpio, we cannot go back to the way we were before.  We cannot “un-know” something.  Scorpio also has dominion over such things as sex, intimacy and trust, power, control, passion and lust, things that are “taboo” and even divorce as well as psychic and occult matters.  These are just some of the things that may have reached a climax or turned a corner around the time of the Full Moon.

With the lunations being a bit off lately, it seems that we need to shift gears a bit and make adjustments in regard to our material and emotional security because they need to co-exist equally and to compliment and balance one another. We may have concluded that these things have been “off” for a while now and it’s also possible that we’ve even traded one for the other. The time has come to make necessary corrections.  Jupiter formed a T-square with the last Full Moon and some undeniable truths may have cropped up posing a direct challenge to some our security needs.  Whatever it was that came up seems to be BIG.

Venus in Cancer is the ruler of this Taurus New Moon and is in a favorable aspect with Neptune in Pisces.  Both are water signs and harmonize nicely with Earthy Taurus.  This is a good aspect for art, music or any kind of creative activity.  It can also be a very romantic and glamorous aspect but beware of illusions and delusions; all that glitters is not gold so watch that you are not deceived or the one deceiving someone else or even yourself. Venus is also moving into an opposition with powerful Pluto in Capricorn.  Relationships or finances could be in for a bit of an overhaul. These energies again illustrate the pull between material and emotional security; it could be that a love of home, family and domesticity faces off with changing up the status quo or feelings of love and affection facing off with eliminating walls, wanting privacy vs. eliminating blocks and walls, nurturing vs. discipline, home values vs. powerful organizations, home concerns vs. career, as just a few examples.

This New Moon also highlights the energies of the Mars in Gemini – Saturn in Sagittarius opposition that perfected just days before.  These effects could still be lingering.  Conversations and communications could be contentious or angry but we may not be able to do anything about it.  We may want to act on some of our ideas but are prevented from going any further.  It could be that tricky or cunning words are trying to persuade but those words could fall on deaf ears if there is no truth to them.  Maybe there is just a complete lack of communication or you can’t seem to find the right words. There could also be legal obstacles to some kind of agreement. Avoid signing paperwork or agreeing to anything if it is possible.

Mercury is also stationing retrograde in his own sign of Gemini at the time of this New Moon.  You can expect delays and mix-ups with communications and routine travel.  It may even be that you have to cover old ground, repeat or re-do something.  Plans may need to be scrapped or revised.  Forward movement may be difficult if not impossible during this time.  There could also be more involvement and comings and goings with your neighbors, neighborhood or siblings.

The New Moon is also quincunx Pallas in Sagittarius, suggesting that while we may be able to see the big picture, we are in the process of problem solving and we may need to make some corrections and adjustments to our long term plans and things that we’ve been building for a long time now.

It appears that at this time, we will need to go over things, repeat, correct and adjust. With the New Moon in the tenacious sign of Taurus, we’ll at least have the energy to keep at it until we get it right.

Full Moon in Taurus

17 Nov

This Full Moon is in the sign of Taurus.  This Full Moon illuminates values, money, finances and the things that provide us with the feelings of security and stability.  It may also highlight issues of self-worth or a lack of.  Please do not judge your worth or the worth of another by how deep the pockets are.  You may feel that you are lacking, or worse yet, feeling worthless.  Try being grateful with an attitude of gratitude for the things you do have.  Some of us possess gifts that are beyond material measure.  At this time we can decide what is really of value to us.  Taurus is a sensual sign so we can take time to appreciate our senses.  Take time to stop and smell the roses, listen to an amazing piece of music, get a massage, create your own work of art, get up and dance or sing and relish in the beauty of just being

Venus, planet of beauty and love is also the ruler of Taurus and she’s recently gotten herself tangled in the Uranus/Pluto square.  During this time, it may be that we’re experiencing our ‘soul growth’ in the realm of relationships, love and money.  It could be that relationships are revitalized or overhauled with an injection of excitement or electricity, maybe someone needs to change things up or needs more freedom and space or maybe a relationship ends altogether.  It may happen to be that a new relationship catches you off guard with an unexpected intensity.  It’s also possible that there is a resurrection of a relationship from long ago or with an older person that comes as a surprise. On an inner level, it could be that there’s an awakening stimulating a deep love and appreciation for our responsibilities and commitments; where we willingly and gratefully accept them. We can also experience those changes in our income (or lack of it); it may be changes that we initiate ourselves or something that happens out of the blue. 

At this time, we can put an end to any feelings of complacency, laziness, overindulgence and the need for acquisition or greed as well as putting to rest the fear of being a “have not”.  At this full moon, with the Taurus/ Scorpio polarity highlighted, we may be able to release what keeps us stuck if we can appreciate our ‘dark side’.  We all have one.  That which is hidden controls us but it doesn’t need to.  Take the lessons learned and build something of value. Honestly face things for what they really were and allow ourselves to be reborn and renewed.

New Moon Solar Eclipse in Taurus

8 May

Its Eclipse time and change is in the air. There was much we had to get to the core of lately, and extract any decay or ‘non-essentials’.  Something may have met its end. Don’t worry!  We need to make room for the new!  Several of the personal planets have just had it out with Saturn enabling us to see what needed to go and give us the strength and stamina to move mountains and get the job done. Saturn may have also had us feeling blocked, delayed or frustrated for whatever reason or it could be that there was an issue with a parent, boss or authority figure or even with you as the parent or authority.  Maybe we have been working very hard lately for long term goals or results with little appreciation or compensation. While all of this hard work wasn’t so immediately gratifying, we should start seeing the results or reaping some rewards soon enough.  The New Moon Solar Eclipse in the fertile sign of Taurus will see to the growth of the new seeds we are planting. Taurus is an Earth sign and ruled by Venus, the Goddess of beauty and love. We may literally be getting our hands in the earth and planting seeds. It’s the perfect time to spend in natural surrounds and revel in Mother Nature.  With Pallas in such close aspect, it is very favorable for healing Mother Earth as well as beautifying the landscape.   Pallas in Taurus could also highlight issues with plant based medicine, as well as healing through touch and massage.  We’ll also be getting some help from Mars and Mercury at this Eclipse. While they met up on the 7th-8th,    having our thoughts and actions  in sync on practical matters,  getting things done and ‘handling the baggage’ as indicated by the Sabian Symbol.  At this time, we are concerned with how we are making our lives more secure and enjoyable, our relationships more relate-able and our surroundings more beautiful.  Taurus is a material sign and wants to be comfortable and to have a quality of life, not just earn a paycheck.  This eclipse could help us to come up with practical plans that are bound to last.  Taurus carries on and is unwavering and solid but also slow to move and doesn’t want to give anything up or change easily (that includes possessions, relationships, ideas etc.). With the help of Mercury keeping our ideas grounded, they able to take form as Mars gives us the energy to push on, keep at it and ‘make it happen’.  A Solar Eclipse indicates new beginnings but the South Node is close to this eclipse which is karmic and rooted in the past.  The Scorpio Lunar eclipse on April 25 was about letting go and it could be that we are made aware of what ruts we get stuck in and why.  And we may actually be able to do something about it!  Finally!  We may be able to shake lose what mental ruts or thought patterns that seemed to be permanent and go on forever.  We may be able to use some of our practical gifts, talents or lessons from the past to make something new that we like and that will last as well as provide us with more comfort, security and enjoyment.   We could even be transforming old structures or recycling and making something new (and pretty!).    Pluto and Ceres also go head to head at this eclipse possibly providing a turning point with obsessions and intensity in regard to parenting, child rearing, family / clan issues; parent/child complexes – especially with issues of attachment and separation  and ‘mother love’ vs. self-love as well as issues of nurturing and nutrition. 

This New Moon Solar Eclipse is at 19’31” Taurus.  The Sabian Symbol is “Wisps of clouds, like wings are streaming across the sky”.   We are able to see things from a higher perspective and have become aware of where we may need to change course.  Pallas is in the same degree as this eclipse giving us a broader perspective, enabling us to get the bigger picture, she further helps us in problem solving, trouble shooting and planning.  It seems that after the removal of the decay, we are left with very fertile ground at this eclipse.  Whatever we do now seems to be practical, sustaining and long lasting so make sure it is what you want!
