New Moon in Taurus: worth it

So, what do you like? What makes you :-) What do you VALUE? How are you going to enjoy yourself?

Taurus represents things and tools that give us pleasure: plenty of money – to have and to spend, nice things to own, good things to eat, things that help us look good.

At the New Moon in Taurus, a new cycle of pleasure begins. You may look for new ways to have and enjoy money and things, new delights in dining, lovely new things to purchase, new ways to adorn yourself. If you’re not materially inclined, you may find new tools or new ways to enjoy art, whether you make it or appreciate it.

A Super Moon occurs when the Moon is at its closest point in orbit to the Earth. We feels things just a little more personally.

The ruler of the Super New Moon in Taurus is VENUS where she reigns as Queen. With Venus in Taurus, we FEEL more intensely, we’re more sensual, more harmonious, we tend to focus on the things we value and enjoy in our lives. We want to be comfortable. Please – nothing too jarring or upsetting that will disrupt or question our comfort zone. We can enjoy speaking (softly) and singing (harmoniously). We enjoy our friendships, as long as we share good vibes.

While Venus is in a relatively calm place, the Sun & Moon, the stars of the New Moon – are forming a GRAND TRINE in EARTH to the North Node and Pluto.

Power can be shared, both within our selves and with others. Cooperation only makes us more powerful. Win-win situations are possible, even profitable. You may find ways to your finances that will earn you more. Open up new income streams. If you’re super indulgent, you may blow it all on extreme pleasures, or you can pool your resources and invest on something on a larger scale.

The TRINE Of the Sun & Moon in Taurus to Pluto and the Lunar North Node suggests an intimate awareness and understanding of people. Whether your relationships are personal or social you can feel in harmony. People seem to “get” you. On the other side, your emotions can become extreme. This is you becoming more aware of how you let old patterns dominate your life (subconsciously). As you SEE and release these old, negative patterns, you can take back your power and start to feel more balanced, and empowered. You are worth it!

Mercury Retrograde: circles and shifts

mercuryrx-4-28-16Mercury stations Retrograde in Taurus
April 28 – May 22, 2016

This is not the usual Mercury Retrograde.

When Mercury makes its Retrograde station, the Moon in Capricorn trines Mercury, and so does the North Node in Virgo, creating a Grand Trine in Earth. (Mercury will trine Jupiter in Virgo during this Retrograde station, but it’s a wide -10 degree- trine at the actual station.) This is NOT a difficult Mercury Retrograde. It may even be too easy.


You may be able to avoid doubling back over recent steps by thinking twice. But if you make mistakes and need to retrace your steps, do things twice, you have options. You can let it stress you and get irritated. Sure. Or, you can realize that you have a larger, tighter, smarter, more professional and committed circle of support than you have acknowledged or utilized.

Moving fast, you can miss things, big and small. So Mercury Retrograde gives us time to remember to be more mindful. Tune into your sacred inner voice as it speaks to you, even if it means slowing down.

Mercury Retrograde in earth-sign Taurus wants us to be grounded. Not flighty, not reckless or careless, but conscious, awake, and centered in your being. Connected to the Earth and open to the Sky. How can you get grounded and feel more connected? The next 3 weeks can make it easy to get there.

First, think twice.

Full Moon: lighting up the dark

fullmoon-4-22-16

Full Moon in Scorpio
Friday, April 22, 2016
@ 1:23 AM EST
Moon @ 2 Scorpio 30
Sun @ 2 Taurus 30

At this Full Moon in Scorpio, as both Scorpio rulers, Mars and Pluto, have just stationed Retrograde, we can find ourselves being stopped in our tracks. And facing the very real possibility of moving backwards. What? Not ME!!!

Chilling out is an art. We can hear our Spirit when we are calm inside. Much less when we are moving at full speed, running as fast as we can, always rushing to find out what’s next.

This Full Moon is the revelation that we are in partnership. With Spirit, with other people, with our creation itself.

To fully understand and use our resources, we need to honor our partnerships. This is where we can distinguish our strong inner self from our small inner self. And choose our strong self.

So don’t get too down on Mars and Pluto and Saturn Retrograde. This is an opportunity to release all the SUPER CRUCIAL things we are doing so we can pay attention to something deeper inside that will lead us to our greatest freedom.

What are you ready to release?

This blog seems like important work. It sure helps me stay centered and grounded and i truly enjoy bringing this into the world. So i hope it helps you too. After 20 years, we really need your help to keep this going. We are committed to relieving stress and fear so we can find our inner love and joy, and live in gratitude, every day.
