Moon into Taurus

June 19, 5:53pm – June 21, 6:45pm EDT

Moon in Taurus is having a sweet time of it these days. She has easy aspects with Mars, Neptune, Venus, and Pluto during her transit and gets to taste plenty of goodies.

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.

Recipes for Moon Water to Add Oomph to Your Intentions

What is Moon Water?

Nothing other than water left out under the Moon. Usually done during a Full Moon, Moon Water is said to take on the qualities of the Full Moon’s sign ~ it’s  “charged” by the Moon.
