Moon in Taurus

image

The Moon is moving against the backdrop of constellation of Taurus giving us a slow and steady approach  to things today.  There’s much emphasis on grounding,  getting comfortable and developing amiability and peace when it comes to our various stresses.

Our overarching desire right now is to make sense through the senses.  Connecting through touch,  food,  smell,  the beauty of vibration and sound and the subtle recognition of all the sublime aspects of our earthly experience.

Potentials for this energy are indulging in the following :

Good food
Good wine
Beautiful people,  friends
Luxuries
Comfort
Sweet, sugary things.
Spending
Accumulating
Growing Something
Making Something
Desire to Sing
Nature as teacher,  signs from the nature Kingdom
Love
Harmony and Symmetry

A Taurus moon makes us want to earth our desires,  make contact with real living things,  people,  places and feel good!

Abraham Hicks says “It is good to feel good”.

Sun in Aries

aries-symbol

When the Sun is in Aries the core self is strongly connected to the fire element and this imbues Aries with boundless energy. They are active beings, constantly needing outlets for their physical energy. This makes them active, dynamic, self willed, urgent, fast, goal orientated and highly creative beings.

Outlets for energy include: Sports, Exercise, Gym, Movement.

Without this outlet the physical energy builds and affects the body in the form of frustration,aggression and even anger and rage.

However it’s this same energy which allows Aries to be the natural leaders they are known to be. They are fast acting, good at quick decisions where other signs may deliberate for longer before acting on decisions. They effortlessly create as they go, and are good at making things happen in the physical world without too much thought.

Strengths include: Physical, Decision making, Leadership, Getting things started.

Weaknesses: Carelessness, Act first think later, Selfishness, Winning at all costs

However, with this in mind, remember that each Sunsign is one piece of a larger character puzzle, with other signs such as the Moon , Rising and Mercury playing important roles in the filtering of a pure expression of the Sun.

Getting Your Point Across with the Moon in Aries

When the Moon spends it’s monthly 2.5 days in Aries it’s hard for us to  not try to get our own objectives met. 

Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and rules self-definition on principle.  Anything that comes from the connectedness of the universe,  comes forth to  distinguish and separate itself.   That’s why Aries has a reputation for being self willed,  goal orientated,  sometimes selfish and yet also  self aware.  The energy combined with lunar energy,  the moon,  magnifies our feelings about things.  Mostly about ourselves in relation to the world.  And that’s OK,  it’s only for two or so days.  It’s balancing. 

The pitfalls with this energy come from the discord between the element of water (Moon) and the element of fire (Aries).  Fiery water is active water,  it’s turbulent and can also be destructive but there is movement,  forceful movement.  So an Aries moon can simultaneously free us and rile us up.

Positive ways to use this energy are through conscious action,  inspired action,  using your feelings to take actions,  getting on the same page,  moving things around,  open communication regardless of outcomes. Truthfulness.  No filter.  Fear less,  do more.  Doing.  Projecting . Asserting.

Full Moon in Leo @ 3 Degrees

So the moon will come to a grand climax in Leo on the 23rd of January 2016. Lately our energies have been quite “other orientated” , selfless and maybe too giving with Neptune, Mercury and the Sun dancing together in the sky.

Our sense of our own goals has really started to demand more urgency. What do you want this time around? And how are you managing your expression of that desire? This post will suggest ways this could come about for you.

My disclaimer this week is to hold your horses where action is required, or where decisions are made. Mercury is still retrograde until the 25th and therefore has you generally doing more rethinking about various parts of your life. Think about it ,sure. Research, recommit, but it needs to stay within the mental realm until he goes direct

Here’s this weeks Full Moon cheat-sheet. Read for your rising sign and sun sign if you know it.

Capricorn- Intimacy

At this moment in time, Capricorn, it’s a powerful build up to a moment of great release, bonding, sharing, usually via some kind of catharsis. Finances can come from somewhere outside of your own. Help arrives. Accept the gifts of the universe and allow this support to move you forward. Whether it’s an intimate bond, a loan, or the release of some kind of shackle.

Aquarius-Relating

This week’s build up has you pondering and urgently desiring to find yourself within a relationship and the full moon brings YOU fully to life in relation to someone else. Allow others to really hear and see you. The real you. You will be surprised at the good reception and feedback.

Pisces-Service

Dear Pisces, you are no stranger to giving. This week will be about the awareness you get of how much you give of yourself. Where are your energies flowing , flooding even? Is this healthy? These are the kinds of questions which the full moon should answer. Work picks up and a health issue can come up for resolution.

Aries- Fun

Coming out of a period of crazy intensity, and perhaps because of it, social isolation, you may now desire this week to let your hair down and step into fun mode. What kind of fun do you want to have? Spend time with children, playing games and doing things which allow you to enjoy life again. This will open up a doorway to more joy down the line. Make time for it.

Taurus-Home

It’s all about family, home and your space this week , Dear Taurus, where things build to a crucial moment of self realisation. Who are you in relation to your family? Do you fit?Do they? What can you do to make your home reflect your tastes, and also how can you make your space a comfortable place. How can you allow others in your home to contribute to this?

Gemini-Communications

Once more , you are very familiar with dealing with sudden influxes of data and activity. Find your voice among the flurry of details flying at you is your challenge this week. With your ruling planet retrograde, you have really been a bit of a double checking, second opinion kind of mindset. Rely on your powers of editing. Whether its your words, dreams, thoughts or communications in general.

Cancer-Earning Potential

What kinds of talents can you turn into lucrative streams of abundance , Cancer? How can you apply your unique self to a desire you have to earn more? Or earn your own worth in your own eyes? These are things on your mind. You may need to get to grips with your real talents, your life skills, and the actual application of these to a pressing concern or fun project.

Leo-Self

It’s about you now, Leo. Your reality right now may include sudden surges of environmental changes, all around you things are moving very quickly and this may seem a little jarring for a stable sign such as yourself. Know that you become a better you through this process of movement. See this as an great opportunity to turn the attention to yourself. What kinds of openings are there now to really change? Investigate. Google.

Virgo-Self Care

Hey Virgo, with your ruling planet retrograde, you could be feeling all sorts of unsettled. The full moon should allow you to get in touch with your spiritual center again and therefore set off a phase of ease and wellbeing. But only if you take the time to turn inward, relax, contemplate, go to your sacred space etc. This full moon can allow you to understand what your true needs are and how valuable they are for your life process and happiness.

Libra-Social

It’s business as usual this week for you Libra and group involvement can start to increase around the weekend. Are you in support of this gathering? Are you asserting yourself? How do you really feel about your friends and their thoughts? Big realisations can occur now. Libran energy is about sharing and relating, and your naturally are focused on this in your lifetime. The challenge is perhaps relating to larger groups? Your circle. Find confidence on a stage, speaking up and gathering information this week and weekend.

Scorpio-Career

Something comes to a head in the career sector of your sky. And this means that your contribution to something , gets put under the spotlight. You get your 15 seconds and this can set up a nice chain reaction which allows you to move forward with greater ease. Your trajectory is lined up and with just a little self confidence, a sense of openness, childlike wonder and play you can get where you next need to be. Don’t doubt your dreams. They are as real as you are.

 

Sagittarius- Surveying

Your natural zone of adventuring, surveying and studying is being activated by this full Moon. And this means big breakthroughs for yourself. Your journey continues after a brief sojourn. You may encounter necessary delays as mercury is still retrograde. But after the 25th its full speed ahead but with a more mature understanding and a more grounded quest for that illusive purpose. Relax into your personal truth and follow it.

New Moon in Sagittarius: Sign by Sign Scopes

So without much ado, here are the scopes for each sign for today’s New Moon 🙂

Sagittarius– This New Moon is all about you dear Sagittarius! Falling in your sector of self, identity and body. Your soul is thirsting for something fresh and new. There’s really been a lot of paring down this year, due to Saturn’s step into your sign. This may have felt like a weight, but a necessary one. However, you can enjoy this New Moon and treat yourself. Do something just for you- haircut, throw a birthday party, get a new pair of shorts for the summer. Do it, just for you. And forget all those disappointments you’ve been suffering. Trust, Dear Sag. It’s all gonna work out for you…

Capricorn– You’re almost there dearest Cap! It seems like you are coming to the end of a very long year. By that I mean it’s really run the gamut from breakups, house moves, job changes, and a definite upsurge of powerful emotions,compelling you to wipe the slate clean. Your ruling planet switched from purging Scorpio to visionary Sagittarius, and this has made you very aware of your more complex , subconscious self. The New Moon your 12th house is calling you to rest and rejuvenate, avoid chaos where possible, and really deeply connect with that silent inner core. You got this! Trust.

Aquarius– In your zone, aren’t you Aquarius? This year the energy has just intensified for you as your ruling planet held sway in rebellious, get-it-done Aries. Your thoughts, speech and communications have really become raw and unfiltered free of unnecessary editing. You are finding your unique voice. This New Moon is highlighting your groups, friendships and connections online. You may make a brand new friend, or just nestle nicely into some holiday socializing with your clique. I guess what I’m saying, Aquarius, is you have a full green light to get fully Turned Up!

Pisces- Who are you in the world, dreamy Pisces? Your ruling planet has been in your own sign, bestowing on you gifts that are unique to you and easier access to them. Your imagination, creativity,abilities, and unique alternative interests have really blossomed and you may have discovered hidden aspects of your psyche. Others have noticed this too and you can definitely feel pride! The New Moon happens upon your 10th sector of career, role, public persona. It helps you carve out a unique destiny, and will help summon all the necessary tools to make steps in that bold new direction.

Aries-Believing something new about the world these days, Aries? Now, Aries, I know you’ve been feeling a little all over the place for a year or two. And this truly serves you. Uranus moved into your sign in 2011 and has since been totally destroying and rebuilding structures in your life.  You need this awakening, so that easier, more user (you)- friendly alternatives could appear. This New Moon adds to the conversation, as you look forward to the future. Planning a Vacay? or a journey of discovery going back to school? Perhaps you are getting serious about your belief system. These are all potentials for the New Moon on the 11th. Use your new understandings to make decisions the new you would make.

Taurus-Plumbing the depths of the most secret self? There’s a lot to be said about what goes on inside our heads and lives , that people don’t really know about. That may be on purpose. I’m a firm believer that things that are new should be kept a secret until it becomes something established. Then you can tell anyone you like! With Venus recently emerged into Scorpio you are finding a more private energy creeping in. This energy is all about getting to grips with core realities about the self. Things like what you owe and what is owed to you, sexuality and intimacy, and your relationship to power. These are very intense energies Taurus, So be kind to yourself. The New Moon helps you come up with a plan, a budget, a game plan to deal with life-things. Do you!

Gemini-Someone else enters your universe, Gemini. Sometimes, the universe gifts us with like-minded souls who we just want to get our smooch-on with. And this is true for you now Gemini! Someone is getting under your skin, or more like into your heart. It may be someone quite different to your normal type. Which really continues a theme which your ruling planet , Mercury,  having with you.  Or if in an existing partnership, you may see a totally new side of your beloved. Don’t be scared , explore. That’s my advice.  They may be a little older too. Or from a totally different country. Have fun getting to know this new element in your love life.

Cancer-Work shifts gears, and your body acclimates, kind Cancer. It’s been business as per usual and by the end of the week you will become aware that you may be feeling a little crazed by all the flurry. But not to worry, your shell will protect. You have an inner warrior that will spring into action if needed. Moon movements affect you particularly powerfully, and this years eclipses have really pushed you to progress. And you have! Remember to pay attention to eating well, getting your 8 hours, and hydrate and you will be fine. The positive thing is that you get a clearer idea at this moon, of what you want from work in the future!

Leo-Time to have a little more fun Leo. Though knowing you, fun is no stranger. It’s a time where you can get into your playful role and let loose. This can become a very fruitful and fun time for dating, spending time with your kid/s, or even becoming aware of your kids starting new phases like going to college, getting a job. In other words, if you are a parent, you can be proud of where they are and this really helps you feel good about yourself too. Parenting is one of the most creative things a human can do. If single, unmarried, sans children, fear not! Then just turn up the fun times volume, and enjoy this time. There are fewer pressures, so enjoy when you can. The New Moon gifts us with something new in this area.

Virgo-A new home awaits your healing heart. Dear Virgo, your ruling planet Mercury was retrograde in September this year. Plans you attended to since after the retrograde, regarding going back to something – a job, a home, a relationship, seem to be picking up speed now. That’s because  Mercury is now in exciting-future-plans Sagittarius. Looking forward to new places, people and things. Your faith, on a spiritual level, may also have deepened over the last little while to help you get through. What’s in your future for this New Moon on Friday? Returning to your center. Getting in touch with your roots, plans to move house. These are all potentials. Just keep ahead with your to-do list and it will be full steam ahead by the Full Moon on Christmas day.

Libra– The business of busy-ness. Your communications sector is on fire. And I mean that in a neutral sense. It’s got a lot going on right now. You’ve recently had the good fortune of your ruling planet in your own sign and may be feeling quite committed , deepened and intimate where it comes to your relationship with yourself and others. You went through quite an active moment where people demanded a lot from you, and your social life was off-the-chain.  You are now, with this New Moon, being called to start making bigger steps , becoming bolder and broadening your mental horizons. Perhaps you are thinking of teaching, or being taught again through a short course. Plans like this will have much support! Go you.

Scorpio– Oo La La, All that hard work is literally starting to pay off. Scorpio. Your money is startling to flood in. You’ve been through the quintessential ringer. Pluto in Capricorn has been challenging mentally and in terms of your everyday journeying. You’ve been fascinated by power, control and the dynamics in the political world and how it affects you. So with all these daily realities infusing your mind, its no wonder you sometimes feel drained. So much going on right now globally! This New Moon connects your work with the rewards or payment received from such efforts. It may include a raise, a bonus or in some way opening up to larger amounts. Receive with grace. You deserve it!
