New Moon: 24 Taurus 36

On the Exquisite Flavor of Water

A new moon can be a subtle event in a world full of electric light. Many people are truly unaware of the monthly alignment and that’s understandable. But not us…!

The descriptors for a new moon in Taurus cover materialism – the acquisition of which keeps us all head down at work  – and yet also the most primal five senses of sight, smell, touch, taste and sound. The preoccupations of the infant and toddler spin into the urges to keep up with our contemporaries. This is the zone of ‘Fixed’-‘Earth’ and is ruled by Venus, a magnetic yin archetype.

Our microcosm is fixed. Every day we pass through our abode, neighborhood, work space, etc and it cradles us, be that to the meager, middling or extravagant degree. It is what it is. We don’t spend energy dwelling upon it until something out of the ordinary occurs. But the annual new moon in Taurus offers a moment to pause and reflect on your material world requirements and how these factors set the daily activity regime for you and your intimate circle.

What would you alter in everyday life if you could and how would that affect your sense of sufficiency? Is there a path to compromise worth dedicating yourself to? Over the last decade, can you see evidence of how your income/expenditures have shifted? Many of us are grasping the difference between our wants and our needs.

What’s your favorite time of the day and why? Which of your senses are fulfilled during those moments? These days around the Taurean new moon, make peace with your space and possessions and the percentage of lack or wealth you designate to them. Consciously Revel in your sensory experiences in these days…

On the exquisite flavor of water, the feel of a hair brush, the hyper chattering of baby birds and the droning of bees. On the sights and sounds of your commute, the smells inside shops or the grocery store, the hum of motors keeping air, food and people in a controlled environment, the predictable cadence of tapped keys and one side of phone calls, the feel of your favorite chill-out seat.
Even better, revel in the company of (or in close proximity to) others: Venus is in Gemini. There’s a mini-break invitation here and for those who have been hard at work, She says, Rest while you can. Soon enough, the pace will quicken again.

Prelude to the Full Moon in Libra

cyprus transits280318

Over the last 48 hours, the baseline buzz of Uranus, sometimes described as Agitation or Panic, has grown to a irksome pitch for those seeking validation/acceptance of their personal agenda. Many are beyond boredom and frustration with slo-mo pointless drama, with the plight of being square in a hive of rounded Others, with the inane workings of The System, a.k.a. the Established Powers that Be.
Venus in Aries can almost see and smell her beloved green pastures in Taurus but the route before her – squarely behind and within ‘enemy lines’ – demands that she first performs a bit of guerilla warfare. If you’ve been getting System messaging louder and clear that your current style or mode of relating/deal making has lost its charm, then this lead-up post for the full moon in Libra is for you. No harm, no foul (yet), just No Go from here on.

Augmented Intelligence
In other words, if you really want to win you’ve got to get some emotional distance on the matter and that’s not easy – but it is possible. You’ve got to return to your proverbial center and expect to magnetise a brilliant result. Enter Uranus in modified regalia as cool, detached Genius Download in long-term, progressive service to Self. This may come from you/ ‘your side’ or from the System wherein you may least expect it.

(For me, the solution’s first step came from recognising a particular characteristic inherent in an archaic opposing system was a big weakness…nanoseconds later, I was grasping that I could capitalise on it. Once I saw this chink in the armor, my plan simply became obvious and even exhilarating to me…ha! I must still walk through a trying experience with a fickle Goliath but now I am channeling the tools available. I’m up for this. Agitation immediately drops to minimal/nil. Whew! )

Weather-Proof
You should always expect your astrologer to provide at least two supporting phenomena for their storyline recommendation.
1. Mars rules the space that Venus now travels through and is wholly under the authority of Saturn, the disciplinarian and the king of emotional containment.
2. Jupiter in Scorpio is novile the full moon and sextile Pluto. In English, this means: expect your genius solution to be found in going deeper in analysis of your particular validation struggle. Really examine the strings and pulleys between you and your in-law/contractor/employer/social network/parent/child/ health care provider. Let Pluto work FOR you; amp up your X-ray vision and drop your preconceived notions.

Cancerian Concerns
The upcoming full moon in Libra at 10’44 creates the shape of a cross ( ‘+’) in the astrology wheel. The sun occupies 10’44 of Aries, Saturn and Mars occupy 8’ of Capricorn, the moon is shining in Libra and this leaves the outlet for energy surplus/overload directly into 5’to 15’ of Cancer. This means that our response/s to Life’s revelations and completions occurring around March 31st will most likely have some Cancerian element to them.
You might decide to turn off your phone and maintain sofa status or take a long bath and go to bed. You might decide to visit family or a close long-time friend for a hearty meal – or cook for them. That’s fine as long as you don’t find yourself still sipping and nibbling into the wee hours. That’s fine as long as you don’t think you can come for comfort, but then a couple hours later start criticizing some pet ‘fault’ you see in them. That’s fine as long as you don’t seek to manipulate them into giving you further assistance.

Cancer can receive and handle your stress – gladly! – but you can be sure that beneath appearances, it’s not effortless. Respect that in yourself as caretaker and in those who nurture you. Remember that the people and places that represent sanctuary for you deserve your finest possible companionship and maintenance. After all, when the dust settles…who and what else matters?

New Moon Solar Eclipse: 27 Aquarius 7

cypNMSE15feb18

There is a buzzy undercurrent to this new moon solar eclipse for just about any life zone it seeds in the natal wheel. In the days leading up to the conjunction, you may have been feeling something akin to a vacuum, a depression or even the eeriness of the calm before a storm. Some have felt a hint of euphoria, a tingling vibration through the mind and body…Yesterday, I heard someone say, ‘Perhaps I won’t give up just yet…?’

You’re not losing your marbles, just having your hinges rattled. Your emotional center is picking up the kind of static that comes when the Collective Zeitgeist is shifting from one frequency to another. For those with natal points in play, there’s a mega data stream en route – a hand on the radio dial turns and suddenly the speakers are BLARING. Is it a song, a proclamation, a public service announcement or a fixating whisper that feels like it could well deafen your inner child’s ears?

I can’t help but think of Elon Musk’s spectacular Falcon Heavy accomplishment as symbolic of what one might do with this ecliptic energy. In each unique life story touched by this phenomenon, the seed planted in this moment has the potential to make the tough – the impossible – look like a majestic walk in the park. On that note, let’s include the agenda of Saturn in Capricorn, too. There were countless sleepless days and nights of raw intellectual and physical toil with subsequent tearful release, an incessant dream-drive that many found baffling and a waste of time, frightening costs of cash and spirit spent behind the scenes for years that Elon and the many teams aligned under the SpaceX vision endured.

And they would do it all again, without hesitation.

The toothpaste doesn’t go back into the tube once you’ve glimpsed with Sky Sight. Time is not the enemy. Time morphs into your accomplice. Time lets you know how much space you have for each incremental step/phase/budget line item/trial run. Time grants you the authority to know when you’re ready for launch, ready to upcycle, ready to pro-actively manipulate the materials of your passion work.

Since the new moon in Capricorn, I’ve listened to many people say, ‘I am going to DO (this), BE (this), HAVE (this) NOW. And that is easy to understand in these times of instant gratification. But this mentality is self-sabotage. Nothing enduring happens in an instant – not even the comprehensive grasping of (this) in your mind’s eye.

For those who have faithfully continued showing up to The Grindstone, know that you have truly earned at least a mini-break…don’t dismiss the invitation and here’s why: this new moon moment signals the imminent arrival and docking of Spaceship Genius for those intentionally aligning their heart and mind. It signals the pro-active upcycling of the minds and materials that constitute your reality . The crew – metaphoric and of flesh and blood – brings rich supplies for the months and years to come. On behalf of those I know who are putting in the effort, I am positively giddy with expectation. Hold on tight!
