The moon in Taurus squares off with Saturn in Aquarius and the sun in Aquarius, encouraging us to set boundaries and reconsider how to take action, and we could make some unexpected—but exciting—choices as Mars in Capricorn makes a helpful connection with Uranus in Taurus. The moon connects with Neptune in Pisces and Mercury in Capricorn, inspiring our imaginations and encouraging us to share our ideas. We’re in a deeply reflective mood as the moon connects with the planet of the underworld, Pluto, in Capricorn. (by Annabel Gat)
The Moon continues its transit of stable Taurus all day today. This morning, the First Quarter Moon occurs when the Sun in Aquarius forms a square with the Moon in Taurus. There is a crisis theme surrounding any quarter Moon phase, as we feel compelled to take action. We’re made aware of how our actions affect those close to us, perhaps through trial and error. Whatever project or initiative we began around the New Moon is now off the ground, and it may face its first obstacles. It can be a time of stress, clashing, and discord, but also of high energy, motivation, and growth.
Also this morning, Mars forms a trine to Uranus, and we’re looking to branch out a little and explore our more independent or adventurous side. It’s far easier to let go of grudges or baggage in the name of progress. This transit encourages us to get out of a rut, innovate, or entertain new methods, nudging us out of our comfort zones. We are in tune with our desire to make positive changes and improvements in our lives. Working toward our dreams and inspired goals comes naturally now. At the same time, we hold the power of detachment that helps us choose paths that work in our favor.
