The moon sits down close to the horizon, as if to hold the fertile bounty of our bright evening star, Venus. Astrologically, Moon conjunct Venus is an aspect of good times graced with joy and well-being for all.
So get out tonight and see a real show; and since you know the inside deal – maybe, just maybe – you’ll take a risk, show your vulnerability (Moon) and gain a fine reward of Venus.
This is a busy week with many opportunities. The first major shift is that on Monday the Sun moved into Taurus – the sign of Manifestation.
Can you feel it? Like a furrow in freshly plowed earth, the Sun in Taurus is your time to dig into your productivity. Seeds were planted during the days of Aries, and now it’s time for your inspirations to be made manifest.
But first – sit down with a cup of tea. Taurus is a fixed earth sign, and you’ll do best when you’re grounded. Look around and take in all that you see and feel. Get comfortable and smell the flowers. Engage your senses, take a deep breath, and just allow yourself to ‘BE’.
This year, the Sun is in Taurus from April 20th to May 20th for 31 days of splendor.
We just left the Sun in Aries, the sign of motivation, so now –the cosmic flow moves from motivation into manifestation. Hopefully you have your marching plans in order, and are ready to apply your season of initiation.
Mercury, the planet of movement is busy, busy this week, but to access the positive energy of Mercury, there is first a process of questioning (Mercury square Jupiter) and even resistance (Moon opposing Saturn).
Mercury square Jupiter on Monday can be an aspect of overwhelm, i.e. too much (Jupiter) information (Mercury). Hold on; the antidote is: ‘I can DO it’; I WANT to do it.
You’ve been waiting for this moment because things get exciting by mid-week! On Tuesday the stars come bearing a gift through Mars trine Pluto. Now you easily say –‘I WANT to move that mountain. If you do this consciously – then you can tune into the amazing opportunities presented this week.
Wednesday delivers the goods with three big planetary aspects: Mercury trine Pluto; Mercury conjunct Mars; and Venus sextile Jupiter. Here’s the translation:
Mercury trine Pluto is one of the very best aspects for production. Mercury helps you ‘name it’ and Pluto is your big dream – so – translated, you have the option to name your greatest dream. Mercury conjunct Mars, if and when used wisely, keeps you out of arguments and present a grand opportunity for self motivation. Venus sextile Jupiter puts it all together – think positively, and you just might get lucky.
The Shadow of the Light of Taurus
One of the secrets of astrology is that to fully understand any sign you must know its opposition. Taurus, the sign of manifestation is more deeply revealed through Scorpio, the sign of emotion and desire. Both signs like to keep secrets, and both operate from a deep well spring of authenticity. And, each sign holds a cure to the pain of the other.
Scorpio suffers from the inconstancy of repeated transformations, always rising from the ashes of his or her latest revolution. And, Scorpio comes to constancy through his dynamic opposite, Taurus. Conversely, Taurus must learn to find balance his desire for material gains, a passion which could otherwise destroy him. Taurus learns to appreciate that there are things that money cannot buy, a lesson that Scorpio knows well.
Both signs are healed when they tune in and surrender to their emotional vulnerability. It’s the Moon that keeps you sane while the Sun is in Taurus.
Have a fabulous week. Enjoy this season of Taurus, and remember to stay in Tune With the Moon.
