The Moon is in Taurus today, the sign of her exaltation and she is ruled by Venus in Sagittarius which is in turn applying to square Jupiter in Virgo.
In the last few weeks, the soil has been tilted not without difficulties revealing some buried treasures but also many rocks. We are now walking on an exposed landscape and we can see clearly where the foundation needs to be set.
The Moon in Taurus for the next few days can help us survey our assets. What are the resources available to you at the moment that will help you carry out some of the big ideas you have? We are still very much in the planning phase and it is not time to sit on our laurels.
The Moon in the Earth sign of Taurus helps us filter our experience through the five senses:
Am I comfortable? What do I need to feel relaxed and at peace? There can be a desire for ease and an ability to find a deep satisfaction with simple pleasures. The downside of this indulgent Moon is that we can become complacent not pushing further and becoming somewhat self-satisfied.
The hard aspect between Venus in Sagittarius (the ruler of the Moon in Taurus) and Jupiter in Virgo denotes a carelessness or perhaps missing out on some important details. Since Jupiter is retrograde in the sign of its detriment we might be overwhelmed with everything that needs to be accomplished and get lost in the various details of our daily existence. It could also be that we do not attend to the nitty-gritty stuff and we skip out on some important steps.
While the Moon is in Taurus for the next few days we might notice a need to find the balance between work and rest. If we become mentally overworked, we can become careless. If we only indulge in our passions we can become lazy. There might also be a tendency to become stuck in our views making it harder to keep an open mind. The back and forth is between broad visions and microscopic perspectives.
Know when it is time roll up your sleeve and know when it is time to stop. Do not bring your work in the bedroom and don’t let your lower instincts override your judgment. But most important of all with the Moon in Taurus: cook a delicious meal and enjoy!
