The Moon in Virgo Man

Man of this earth,

Your hands are busy crafting, shaping ideas into forms

Touching wood, feeling for perfection

Turning romance into a work in progress

Your habits becomes an hymn

Whisper in my ear, your to-do list,

messages from the gods.

A healthy dose of fresh air, makes you a careful lover.

The Sun is setting, you make a fire

with your hands, you shape tomorrow.

There is a lot of work to be done

and you will rise with the Sun

birds chirping and all.



Something totally new is emerging from the depth of your being. You can perceive the first rays of a new awareness but you can’t put a name on it yet. It’s too early to see the shapes that are lurking just beneath the surface. Let it be that way for now. You can’t force the flower to grow. Soon enough, the dreams will become matter and the fantasies that fuel your soul will become another cornerstone laid in the foundation of your existence.


To have

When the planet that symbolizes our mental outlook, moves into Taurus territory, we can expect the way we think to become more pragmatic and grounded.

Building from the ground up : Mars in Taurus: 1 April – 11 May, 2015

Spectacular bull wood carving by Omar and Arely Cruz

Mars in Taurus is heavy, rich and fertile like the water soaked soil of spring, warmed up from the Sun. I imagine the smell of a herd of buffallo trampling the ground and breaking the seeds that will sprout new life. The mixed aromas of animal and earth combined with the warm air; intoxicating and primal. The unique sensual quality of this placement  is a natural consequence of being embodied in the physical experience. Pleasure and beauty are directly felt through the fives senses; the simplicity of a shared meal, the smell of fresh bread, the aesthetics of a curve, the taste of wine.

Mars in Taurus is solid in it’s desire.  It has a fixity of purpose and the purpose grows from a deep rootedeness, strong and stubborn growth that produces the biggest trees. Like the mighty oak: solid, hard wood harvested for its strength and resistance.  You don’t get quick results from Mars in Taurus, there is a slow progress being accomplished and that progress is done by a steady and patient hand working the plow, digging the roots, bulding one experience at a time with the knowledge that summer will come, the promise of future harvest in the eye; calm, tenacious and peaceful.
