MOON ENTERS TAURUS AT 12:37pm PST/ 1:37pm MST/ 2:37pm CST/ 3:37pm EST until Saturday. We are motivated by the desire for serenity, security, peace, and comfort. The Moon is at her most sensual and constant in Taurus. Our basic impulses are to relax, resist change, and “stop to smell the roses”.
The New Moon occurs tonight in the sign of Taurus at 7:27pm PST/8:27pm MST/ 9:27pm CST/ 10:27pm EST, making it an excellent time to commit to personal goals that express the positive energies of the sign of the Bull. It’s time to enjoy life’s simple and physical pleasures, as well as activities that bring us in touch with nature and with our bodies. It’s time to “stop and smell the roses” and to become more aware of what makes us feel comfortable and secure. This is an excellent cycle in which to re-evaluate our relationship to money and possessions. We’re discovering what truly satisfies and fulfills us. We may be building and developing the initiatives and innovations begun in the Aries cycle. With this potent Taurus energy, we have the chance to make significant changes in our lives. This New Moon harmonizes with the North Node and aligns with Uranus, suggesting that we can quickly connect with a sense of purpose for making changes and starting anew. However, it forms a square to Saturn, and it can be difficult but rewarding to strike a balance between convention and innovation, as well as between security and freedom. Duties, responsibilities, and obligations that we’ve been avoiding need our attention, although we might see them (initially) as blockers.
Also today, with a Pluto-Chiron quintile, we’re exceptionally creative and smart about solving dilemmas, particularly those that may have been holding us back from personal growth. It’s a good time for devising strategies.
