This week is a strong part of the Taurus Sun square Saturn that brings into focus everything about tangible areas of life – money, security, foundations and what you consider valuable. The Sun in Taurus is often a mellow time although the soul energy of this sign ruled by Venus is inwardly ruled by Vulcan that is more direct and speaks volumes about the meaning of “having” ranging from the grace of life to absolute greed at any cost. There is further emphasis by Pluto retrograding on April 25 in Capricorn that’s also of the earth element as is Taurus and about foundations. The Sun conjunct Uranus on April 26 intensifies everything so impulses are laced with what seems reason and logic yet can have an undertow like those in the ocean. Mercury square Pluto perpetuates all these intensities and for those with the proclivity to take the lower path. Some actions are about money for need versus money for greed and I’m noticing some are justifying their greed knowing it takes away from those in need. Those acts are prodding you to be discerning as you move forward and after the current situation without those whom you see are less than ethical or willing to work with higher energies. The world after the pandemic will be different yet sociologically there won’t be a change. Some are predicting a consciousness shift and I hope they’re right yet celestial alignments right now challenge all to walk a higher more sacred path. Pluto retrograde until October 3, 2020 will be a strong marker of what people will do.
The New Moon in Taurus midweek, April 22, conjunct Uranus revives hope and ways to feel more at peace with life. The simple path is best and thinking about potential is a way to help manifest something bright and beneficial while it grows in light until May 7. Mercury in Aries makes significant angles to planets and helps to think outside-the-box so embracing your own individuality and being definitive is a power point.
