This evening, shortly after midnight, the Sun and Moon conjunct at almost 27° Taurus.
Taurus is Fixed Earth.
Solid and true. Stubborn and predictable. Abundant, sometimes greedy.
The two Luminaries make no major aspects with another planet, thus standing alone in their union—completely appropriate.
But hours before they exact, Luna trines Capricorn Pluto Rx and squares Leo Jupiter—bringing more Earth and more Fixed energy into the equation. (Jupiter and Pluto are currently quincunxing, preparing to exact on the 21st—more on that later.)
On her own, Taurus cares deeply about stability, longevity and bounty. But with the above celestial additions, issues of trust and security become paramount in tonight’s event. There will be a near obsessive questioning of how much is enough?
And do I have it?
Love. Health. Friends. Joy. Money. Food. Laughter.
Yes, the area this Lunation occurs in your natal is probably keeping you awake at night of late—nevermind if you have planets or points at the exact degree.
Scary business when fundamental surety is lacking.
We all know life is never a sure thing, but it still worries us from time to time—and some more than others and in very different ways and at different times!!!
Ok, so how to calm these fears using tonight’s Taurean energy? Well, it is quite simple, really—ritual and routine.
The more personal and innocent the better—make it your own inside joke with the universe! A mini-prayer and promise that things are gonna be OK.
The Bull is slow and steadfast—the simple act of lighting a candle or brewing a cup of tea (or whatever!!) when certain fears surface, then doing it over and over, day after day, will pacify the demons and ground the spirit.
Will it fix the problem—uhmm, NO!! But it will center your resolve to carry on and carrying on is the Bull’s bread and butter!
Happy New Moon, ya’ll!
