Today’s Moon ~ Taurus

Today’s Taurus Moon ambles by without aspecting any planets until she meets up with Neptune in Pisces round about the witching hour. An unaspected Moon has free rein to be exactly who she is and to indulge in the affairs of her house.

Venus into Taurus

Venus moves into lusty Taurus for a month-long stay, June 6 – July 4, 2017. This is not the Venus we associate with love and marriage. This is not Venus, the love goddess. This is Venus, the sex goddess. She never confuses which she is when. This is the Venus that is carnal, sensual, comfort-securing, … Continue reading Venus into Taurus

The Gibbous phase of the Taurus Lunation is about finding out what you don’t know. This is the phase preceding the big reveal at the Full Moon of Scorpio on May 10th.

Tarot for the Taurus Lunation, The New Phase

It’s been a while since I’ve written about the tarot and astrology. It struck me today (on the New Moon in Taurus) that it might be interesting to work through this lunation one phase at a time using cards associated with the beginning of each phase. A New Moon likes to start something new and Taurus likes things she can put her hands on, like these cards, so here goes.

The New Moon in Taurus begins her journey with a pleasant sextile to Neptune in Pisces. Taurus and Pisces are an interesting combination. Taurus is concerned with matters of this world while Pisces may be more comfortable in another. The blending of these two energies can produce true concern and responsibility for the welfare of the Earth and an ability to commune with the divine through nature.

New Moon in Taurus 2017: Tools for the Lunation

As I write this, it’s the morning after a very steady night-long rain. The sky is still gray, cloud-covered. The yards in my woodsy neighborhood are dense with a magnificent variety of green foliage, the branches of the trees bending closer and closer to the ground under the weight of the rainwater. This rainy day mix of earth and water is a wonderful metaphor for the Moon in Taurus, the most earthbound of the signs.

Manifest Your New Moon Dreams: Workbook for the Taurus Lunation 2017

Taurus is the part of us that does our best to create serenity, comfort, and consistency.

Moon in Taurus ~ Tools for the Time

The Moon grooves through Taurus for the next few days urging us to slow down the Aries pace, enjoy our five senses, eat some comfort food, lay back and bring a little luxury into our lives, all while watching our budget.

Full Moon in Taurus ~ Tender Shoots

There’s an old saying, “Bloom where you’re planted.” I don’t buy it. Just because you’re planted doesn’t mean you’ll bloom. You may not even thrive. It may be that the best you can do is survive. The Full Moon phase of the lunation cycle will show you if you’re surviving, thriving, or blooming.
