Once in a while we get a little gift from the zodiac or planets. We’re getting one this weekend from Venus. Continue reading
This is a beautiful merging of the Taurus Moon / Cancer Sun energies giving us a day for calm, peacefulness, love, and caring.
And there’s even more to add beauty to this day. Continue reading
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. Continue reading

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. A sextile with Mars has her feeling sensuous and sexy. Neptune makes everything dreamy. Pluto gives her confidence and increases her power. And a conjunction to her ruler, Venus, in the late afternoon of the 20th has her feeling like all is right with the world. I believe she actually can have her cake and eat it, too.
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, and with a taste for the expensive.
This is also the Venus that will provide the necessary luxuries to all those she loves dearly, to the best that she is able, and will ensure a healthy inheritance for her children. She is hard working because she understands the value of a dollar, and has no doubts as to which side her bread is buttered on.
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. Continue reading
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
The feisty Moon in Aries has a cooling off period late this afternoon before moving into Taurus later tonight. With conjunctions to both Mercury and Uranus in Aries, this spiciest of all Moons is alive with innovative and urgent ideas that she wants to act on immediately.
Moon in Taurus through March 4, 5:07am ET
Crescent Phase through March 5, 6:32am ET
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.
Venus—planet of love, beauty, attraction, and money—enters Pisces today for a month-long stay.
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.

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. You simply draw a container of water, place a covering over it to keep the ickies out, and leave it under the Full Moon. Bring it in the next morning, and there’s your Moon Water.
