Moon in Taurus – Sun in Pisces: Sweet Indulgence

The Moon is in Taurus for the next few days with almost nothing in its way except for a sextile from the planets in Pisces and a trine from Pluto.

It’s a good time to take a breather and rest from the intensity of the last few weeks. A good opportunity to reset, take care of your body and relax your mind. Slow down your pace and indulge a little. A good meal, a nice massage and a walk in nature can work miracles.

The Moon in Taurus will sextile Mercury, the Sun and Neptune in the sign of Pisces later today. This is a nice imaginative aspect that can help us find concrete ways to realize our visions.

Self-indulgence is very likely under theses aspects and we could be tempted to completely surrender to our cravings. Since Venus (the planet of pleasures) is just about ready to turn retrograde it is best to find a balance approach.

To work the next few days to your advantage, make sure your indulgence are restorative. Release stress with bodywork and nourishing meals and make the pleasure last.

When the Moon is in Love with the Earth

bullThe Moon just entered the sign of Taurus and will graze here for most of the weekend.
This is a great opportunity to come back down to earth and into our bodies. With the recent eclipse in Pisces and many planets in mutable signs, a bit of Fixed Earth can help us find some grounding and stability amidst the waves of March.

Regroup, stabilize, simplify and root down. Experience life through your five senses slowly and deliberately.

Exalted

The Moon is in Taurus for the weekend where she loves to be. In this Earth sign, the Moon helps us filter our experience through the five senses. Am I comfortable? What do I need to feel relaxed and at peace? This is an opportunity to find ease and a deep satisfaction in the simple pleasures of life. Take advantage of this beautiful weekend to nurture yourself.

Tarot Monday

It’s #tarotmonday!

The card I picked for this week is from the beautiful Motherpeace Tarot deck.

The Four of Wands: A time to pause for celebration after hard efforts.

The Four of Wands heralds celebration, good times, a happy and harmonious home environment and good news. In numerology, four symbolises stability and firm foundations, and in the case of the Four of Wands, heralds a period of happiness and stability.

This card indicates a sense of harmony and balance as well as completion, and thus symbolises a time of peace and joy in life that come as the result of often difficult and challenging effort.
The Four of Wands is one of the most positive cards in the Tarot deck and indicates general good fortune, satisfaction, and fulfilment.

The work can be put away for awhile, so that the biological and spiritual growth happening in your life can be acknowledged.
We can see a hummingbird flying overhead, blessing the girls with messages from the divine realms at this joyous celebration.

Surveying the land

The Moon is in Taurus today, the sign of her exaltation and she is ruled by Venus in Sagittarius which is in turn applying to square Jupiter in Virgo.

In the last few weeks, the soil has been tilted not without difficulties revealing some buried treasures but also many rocks. We are now walking on an exposed landscape and we can see clearly where the foundation needs to be set.

The Moon in Taurus for the next few days can help us survey our assets. What are the resources available to you at the moment that will help you carry out some of the big ideas you have? We are still very much in the planning phase and it is not time to sit on our laurels.

The Moon in the Earth sign of Taurus helps us filter our experience through the five senses:
Am I comfortable? What do I need to feel relaxed and at peace? There can be a desire for ease and an ability to find a deep satisfaction with simple pleasures. The downside of this indulgent Moon is that we can become complacent not pushing further and becoming somewhat self-satisfied.

The hard aspect between Venus in Sagittarius (the ruler of the Moon in Taurus) and Jupiter in Virgo denotes a carelessness or perhaps missing out on some important details. Since Jupiter is retrograde in the sign of its detriment we might be overwhelmed with everything that needs to be accomplished and get lost in the various details of our daily existence. It could also be that we do not attend to the nitty-gritty stuff and we skip out on some important steps.

While the Moon is in Taurus for the next few days we might notice a need to find the balance between work and rest. If we become mentally overworked, we can become careless. If we only indulge in our passions we can become lazy. There might also be a tendency to become stuck in our views making it harder to keep an open mind. The back and forth is between broad visions and microscopic perspectives.

Know when it is time roll up your sleeve and know when it is time to stop. Do not bring your work in the bedroom and don’t let your lower instincts override your judgment. But most important of all with the Moon in Taurus: cook a delicious meal and enjoy!

Windy Skies

Paulus Potter: ‘Cattle and Sheep in a Stormy Landscape’

This week promises to be quite volatile. We have a Full Moon in Gemini coming up on Wednesday, as the Saturn/Neptune square becomes exact. Venus opposing Uranus will deliver some surprises in your relationships. A lot of unexpected twists, bubble bursting moments and restless energy is in the air. Anxiety can be a manifestation of this type of mutable weather, so relax the mind. Stay away from drama if you can, and find some grounding within your body.

The Moon will be in Taurus for the next 2 days so root yourself to face the winds. Be realistic in your appraisal of what you can do, and simplify where possible.

Peace
