Taurus – values, money, love, self-esteem, resources. This is a nice little new moon in fixed sign, Taurus, steady, grounded, practical, keeping it clear, calm and simple. Taurus an earth sign is manifesting and building energy. Perfect place to plant the seeds of intention for growth and abundance. But….. hang on, wait a tick, looming in the background is a major change waiting to happen and shake things up even more. So perhaps not so much calm after all.

New Moon trines Pluto Rx in Capricorn + Mars in last degree of Capricorn. Pluto is Rx, going back over old stuff for review and transformation, of course with Pluto’s intense touch. Sun/Moon both connect with Pluto’s regenerative powers for transformation, healing. A renewed sense of self, can shine through. Mars is driving/pushing you forward with Capricorn’s ambitious vibe.
A time to rebirth a new set of values, which are more in alignment with your true nature.

This Moon may start of steady, low impact, then it may all change in unexpected ways, can also speed up, and go in any direction. Trying to control it will be very difficult. Uranus + Mars combo brings in some electric energy, also can bring in the breakdown or breakthrough.

Uranus, thunder God of change, the great awakener, lands with a thud into Taurus, then bangs it up, with a roaring match with Mars now moved into Aquarius. Both planets moving, might make for an angry hot pair.

Uranus entering Taurus 16th @1:16 am, for an 8 years stay. Then Mars enters Aquarius for along stay, goes Rx here, 16th @2:54 pm and squares up to Uranus @5:03 pm.

It is still a New Moon very important to plant that intention, on change and knowing in what direction you do want to eventually go, that will be the backbone of all of this.

As always go check out your birth chart to see how ALL of this will impact you.

Stay steady, be strong, one way or another, change is on the way!

Mercury re-enters Virgo, Moon in Taurus, 10th Sept, 2017!

 

mercury in virgo

MERCURY re-enters VIRGO, you now got the info, gone over many things, but mostly it was and probably still is a brain drain and brain F**k!
Mercury in Virgo works well here, watch your stress levels, don’t be in your head too much as you will get brain burn out, become highly strung :/.
Mercury joins Sun, Mars and Mars/Mercury will meet up again so watch out for that one again!

MERCURY re-enters VIRGO, earth, grounded, focuses on the details, your mind or thoughts become sharper, more efficient, you will want to analyze, be discerning with information and put it all in order. Moving forward is the goal, do the weeding out, take with you want you only really want.
Your everyday may become more practical, logical, get organized, more orderly work place or get your everyday down in a way that you can function perfectly, be methodical, have a to do list, plan, write things down and do.
Be precise/clear in your communications with others.

Moon in Taurus, earth, eat, sleep, drink, pamper yourself, roll around in the bed, feel and be in your body! And if you can’t do that focus on money, security, comfort and going for a walk in a beautiful garden instead.

This weeks card is the King of Coins.

Stability-security-endings and beginnings-mastery

The King has reached his peak, in some area of his/her life, you have mastered a task or project, and now is the time to move on or beyond this, to look further into the future, even if it is unknown. He is also about taking the initiative, making decision to make some changes.

You have overcome many things and have worked hard at applying your skills of self-discipline, logic and being practical in your approach. Also being very, in the here and now, working with the rhythms of your body and nature, listening to your feelings and emotions. This is how this king masters the elements.

This king comes along to tell you that you have reached a level of success or achievement in areas of money, work, career, goals. He is practical, steadfast and ambitious to achieve his goals and he does this by working hard, being present, strong, and knowing what he wants.  And this is what makes the King successful in all that he does.

The past is behind you and the future awaits.

To me he is also a smaller version of the Emperor, in his power, in charge of his world.

Relates, to money, career, work, hard-working, physical world, manifesting, manifestation, body, nature, nature, home, investments.

The knight of Coins can take the steadfast and cautious approach to life, plans, goals, only taking action when he or she feels ready or sure. However with this knight the action needs to begin, he/she is eager to start something new. You may have been thinking or working on plans/ideas for a while and it may be getting past the go point, now is the time to take the steps to step into action and go do, or go get what you want. Stability and security is good and very worthwhile but not if it stalls you and keeps you stuck.

Ask yourself where you are at? No matter what the object is you are seeking or desiring, is it now time to take some action or least to make a start into bringing it into reality.

It may take the Aries part of this knight to get going, using his/her courage, passion, fire, lust and desire for a new adventure to happen.

This weeks card is the 4 f coins or pentacles.

earth element, stability, safety, security, money, work, home, possessions, body and senses, the material realm.

Four of coins is a tricky cards, it deals with building, power, stability, security and the flip side of that is, are you holding on to tightly, to rigid, fearful of change and growth, allowing nothing else to come your way. This is a question you ask yourself with the 4 of coins. What once was giving you security is perhaps no longer needed? Keep in mind that this could also be about and attitude, beliefs, emotions, not just money, work, the physical, material world.

Living in a world of limits, physically and emotionally?

You have worked hard at getting to this place in your financial, material, world, you have also worked hard on your internal, emotional place, building on giving you a solid foundation.  Your internal base is good. You have found the stability within you. Keep building on and from this point of structure, don’t build yourself in, get stuck or stay the same.

The next phase of the 4 of coins is to let go, move on, open up a little.

“I acknowledge my spiritual power and security. I discover my faith within” from the herbal tarot.

MERCURY enters TAURUS!

images mt
Ideas, thoughts, must translate into something real and true. If you can touch it, it’s real.
Mercury in Taurus takes on a more steady, logical, practical, approach to life.
You may find you become fixed on certain ideas or information with this pair. So things may slow down for you until you work it out.
It’s also about how resourceful you feel, in what you have and what you use. Does it work, is it practical.
Keep it slow, solid, practical, and straight forward in your approach.
You may find you are thinking about the more sensual, pleasing side of your nature, things that give you pleasure, if something is not working and brings you stress, look at that and upgrade if you have too.
Plus keep in mind Mercury does go Rx here on the 9-10th.
