The Sun is now officially in the sign of Taurus but it won’t be a traditional Taurus season. Uranus the planet associated with awakening and revolution is in Taurus for the next 8 years and this week, the Sun will be conjunct Uranus bringing surprises and disruptions and especially agitating or tickling for people who have planets in the first degrees of the Fixed signs: Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius.
Venus, the ruling planet of Taurus is in the individualist sign of Aries and will conjunct Chiron Tuesday and Wednesday.
This is a ”going it alone” mood even though participation and collaboration might be required. There is a strong urge to do things independently from the crowd right now and you might feel less inclined to look for approval preferring to do things on your own either out of woundedness or simply lack of patience for other people’s bullshit.
The Moon is in Sagittarius to begin the week and will oppose Mars in Gemini in a few hours and conjunct Jupiter in Sagittarius Tuesday morning before going Void of course for most of Tuesday.
There is a lot of enthusiasm and mental stimulation to begin the week. We might be busy writing, exchanging ideas, and running around with an overall increase in tempo or nervousness. Today, Monday is a good day to run your errands and get some work done. Moving around is almost a given with this sort of astro-weather. Don’t get caught up in drama especially online as things will most definitely escalate and catch fire easily.
The Moon is VOC for most of the day Tuesday before entering the Saturn ruled sign of Capricorn Tuesday evening and casting a bit of a shadow on the rest of the week and making us aware of our limitations, responsibilities and time.
*With the VOC for most of Tuesday: If you have important messages to deliver, appointments or arrangement to make do it Monday or wait until late Tuesday evening or the reminder of the week.
Pluto turns retrograde in the sign of Capricorn on Wednesday and will only turn direct at the beginning of October. Pluto is associated with deep regenerative powers often associated with some painful or difficult experiences. Because of the South Node of the Moon also currently in Capricorn, there is a process of digging deep into ancestral patterns and deconstructing patterns of behaviour associated with trauma in order to move forward. If you have important planets between 23 and 20 degrees of the Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn) this will be more significant for you.
Friday and for most of the weekend, the Moon will be in Aquarius and its also the last quarter moon. The ideas and projects that were initiated at the beginning of the month will be tested and a need for adjustements might be necessary in order to move forward with them.
Its a busy week with some surprising elements to contend with. Take advantage of today to fuel your engine with enthusiasm and optimism as the rest of the week has a heavier or more serious tone to it.
