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.

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. In this preparatory phase, we need to dot our i’s and cross our t’s. Are things lined up the way they need to be for you? This is a fantastic time to get things in order since Libra is great at bringing things into balance.

The beginning degree of the First Quarter Phase is 12°52 Leo, associated with the 6 of Wands which is sometimes called “Victory.” The First Quarter Phase is a square aspect that calls for adaptation. In this case, the earthy New Moon of Taurus was steadying, conforming, and security-conscious.

The Moon in Gemini sextiles Gemini’s ruler, Mercury, as the Crescent Phase begins. Any doubts that popped up under yesterday’s stressful but lively lunar aspects have a really good chance of being sorted out now.
They say that Taurus is slow to get going. With my natal Moon in Taurus, I’d have to agree with that. When I had a day job, I’d get up early just to have a slow morning. Well, get out of the way, Slow Poke. The Moon has entered Gemini and things are about to start hopping!
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.

6°Taurus – 24°Gemini
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.
Taurus is the part of us that does our best to create serenity, comfort, and consistency. Being a fixed earth sign, Taurus is concerned with the idea of in perpetuity, foreverness, immortality of the physical. As Venus’ expression of comfort, value, and sensory preferences, Taurus represents our comfort levels and the type of objects we … Continue reading Manifest Your New Moon Dreams: Workbook for the Taurus Lunation 2017
Waxing Moon in Taurus March 2-3.
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.
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.
