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!
We are entering the Winter season in the Northern Hemisphere as the Sun moves into the sign of Capricorn and we celebrate the return of the light.
Tonight will be the longest night of the year and its a great opportunity to mark this time in your own personal way. The seeds of our future enterprises, our visions and our dreams are germinating in the darkness. The veil between worlds is thin and easier to access at the crossroads between seasons. Listen to the incoming messages.
This can be a difficult time of the year for some people so keep your heart open and be generous with your light.
Saturn is in Sagittarius for the next few years and this gives us a desire to reshape our lives to be in line with our brazen visions.
The ruler of Sagittarius is the expansive and unrestrained Jupiter who will remain in the sign of Virgo until September 2016.
Virgo is concerned with approaching a project with humility, working patiently on every details to ensure the quality of its outcome.
This means that in order to achieve our vision, the need to stay humble and use our creative fires with moderation is needed.
It is perfectly ok to have a large scale dream, but we have to be willing to put in the effort that is required to materialise it.
” When you work within the limits of your capabilities and gifts, you are likely to succeed, and that success will bring you increased confidence. But if you launch out on some vast undertaking, you run the risk of failure, and your confidence will diminish. Would you like your confidence to become stronger? If you would instead of trying to move mountain, begin by picking up pebbles, one by one. If you work at this every day you will gradually gain the strength to move a whole mountain. Of course, this metaphor needs interpretation.
It is a human failing to want to plunge with far too much haste into huge ventures, but this is a mistake. We must begin with little things. Supposing you are a singer: to make your debut, you would not apply to sing at the Metropolitain Opera House, because you would be booed off stage and would only end your career in some backwater, singing to an audience of a few gawking bystanders. You would do best first to choose a chicken coop as your concert hall and sing to an audience of hens, and then, if the chickens stop pecking to listen to your songs, you will know that you are talented and will one day be capable of some recitals in some lovely opera house.” –Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov
