Taurus Moon in the final degrees until 8:17pm PST this evening when she will move into socially adept Gemini. Currently the Moon is standing in opposition to Saturn in Scorpio who is spending a little time “retrograde” or recollecting that which occurred as far back as Fall 2012 when Saturn entered Scorpio. As the Moon in Taurus seeks to engage the senses, and find peace in calm satiated environments, Scorpio energy wants to tear away the comforter and see what lies beneath the fluffy sheets. This forms an interchange with a heart that seeks to rest and an a push to do the hard work of looking at the cobwebs or rusty nails, and alchemize that into parts that will support the deep emotional caverns one may need to traverse. While it may feel as though we are engaged in lessons of what may have gone before, there has also been a birthing of creativity that has either emerged or has seeded during Venus and Jupiter’s’ engagement over the last few weeks. On the West Coast, they have been setting together in what has visually appeared quite magical, kind of like the first glimpse of a newborn or an opening flower. This creation may not follow the rules of what we expect or the form we imagine due to the flowing influence from Uranus, however it wants to uniquely manifest after one has done the hard work of diving into the subconscious terrain with Saturn.
We have the Lord of the Underworld, Pluto in Capricorn, interacting with the Sun in Cancer. This emotionally sensitive terrain is just a bit “amped up” with Mars and Mercury also holding court in the sign of the Crab. The energy of Cancer streams from the emotional body, and if we can peel back our protective layers, there may be just pure raw emotion felt as we walk boldly into the undertow. Pluto guides us to the murky waters to soak in the mud and dense places of our soul, with Cancer asking us to please just “release” what may feel like “original” emotional imprinting. Uranus prompts the Sun into an awareness of what is beginning and what can become should one be open to forging a new path that integrates the emotional spectrum inside us. With Mercuries recent movement into Cancer, we have shifted from a more mentally charged communication style to one that is more reflective of our heart space. If our hearts have closed down in protection of prior offenses, we may be challenged to open the floodgates of pure emotion. Should we utilize the courage being offered by Mars’ directive hand, we may find we can unlock some emotional triggers. Neptune joins the bandwagon around “awakening” as he flows a stream of faith and a desire to step into areas of non- reality and believe in the universal connection of love that lives within us all.
