Lunar Eclipse in Leo: How are YOU going to engage in this strange new world? Continue reading
The New Moon in Leo is the beginning of a new cycle of use our creative energy in new ways. We are ready to expand and grow creatively. We are inspired to love more. We may feel ready to expand our circle of love by sharing with our families, growing our families, or by performing for an audience. Whether or not that brings applause, this is the time to feel good about being YOU. Let your self-esteem glow. Continue reading
So, what do you like? What makes you 🙂 What do you VALUE? How are you going to enjoy yourself?
Taurus represents things and tools that give us pleasure: plenty of money – to have and to spend, nice things to own, good things to eat, things that help us look good.
At the New Moon in Taurus, a new cycle of pleasure begins. You may look for new ways to have and enjoy money and things, new delights in dining, lovely new things to purchase, new ways to adorn yourself. If you’re not materially inclined, you may find new tools or new ways to enjoy art, whether you make it or appreciate it.
A Super Moon occurs when the Moon is at its closest point in orbit to the Earth. We feels things just a little more personally.
The ruler of the Super New Moon in Taurus is VENUS where she reigns as Queen. With Venus in Taurus, we FEEL more intensely, we’re more sensual, more harmonious, we tend to focus on the things we value and enjoy in our lives. We want to be comfortable. Please – nothing too jarring or upsetting that will disrupt or question our comfort zone. We can enjoy speaking (softly) and singing (harmoniously). We enjoy our friendships, as long as we share good vibes.
While Venus is in a relatively calm place, the Sun & Moon, the stars of the New Moon – are forming a GRAND TRINE in EARTH to the North Node and Pluto.
Power can be shared, both within our selves and with others. Cooperation only makes us more powerful. Win-win situations are possible, even profitable. You may find ways to your finances that will earn you more. Open up new income streams. If you’re super indulgent, you may blow it all on extreme pleasures, or you can pool your resources and invest on something on a larger scale.
The TRINE Of the Sun & Moon in Taurus to Pluto and the Lunar North Node suggests an intimate awareness and understanding of people. Whether your relationships are personal or social you can feel in harmony. People seem to “get” you. On the other side, your emotions can become extreme. This is you becoming more aware of how you let old patterns dominate your life (subconsciously). As you SEE and release these old, negative patterns, you can take back your power and start to feel more balanced, and empowered. You are worth it!
This is not the usual Mercury Retrograde.
When Mercury makes its Retrograde station, the Moon in Capricorn trines Mercury, and so does the North Node in Virgo, creating a Grand Trine in Earth. (Mercury will trine Jupiter in Virgo during this Retrograde station, but it’s a wide -10 degree- trine at the actual station.) This is NOT a difficult Mercury Retrograde. It may even be too easy.
You may be able to avoid doubling back over recent steps by thinking twice. But if you make mistakes and need to retrace your steps, do things twice, you have options. You can let it stress you and get irritated. Sure. Or, you can realize that you have a larger, tighter, smarter, more professional and committed circle of support than you have acknowledged or utilized.
Moving fast, you can miss things, big and small. So Mercury Retrograde gives us time to remember to be more mindful. Tune into your sacred inner voice as it speaks to you, even if it means slowing down.
Mercury Retrograde in earth-sign Taurus wants us to be grounded. Not flighty, not reckless or careless, but conscious, awake, and centered in your being. Connected to the Earth and open to the Sky. How can you get grounded and feel more connected? The next 3 weeks can make it easy to get there.
First, think twice.
