New Moon in Taurus…Staying power!

New Moon in Taurus

This new moon in Taurus squares Saturn in Aquarius, brings in tension, an edge to the energy, it may involve a new set of rules or responsibilities, feelings of frustration around delays or restriction comes with it. It’s a waiting game while trying to manifest this new start (it’s about the long term changes) under this Taurus new moon be patient, dig in and do what you have to do, be resourceful and use the resource you have while you wait.

Don’t over complicate it, (even though it’s all too complicated), keep it simple as much as you can. It’s all about the waiting and what you do in that time. Do the Taurus thing go slow, be steady and sturdy, eat the food you love, sleep, pamper, nourish and nurture yourself, and while you have the time, go look at what really matters to you, what really do you value(Taurus) in areas of money, love, where you put your thoughts, time and energy. Don’t waste your time or energy on things that know longer bring you joy, value and real meaning to your life. You don’t want to use your future energy up now on things that no longer bring value or joy. Plus what do you want to take into the future with you?

Sun and Moon both meet up with Uranus after the new moon, this can bring in some form of liberation around restriction, a burst of energy or information that lightens things up. It is Uranus so it can be delivered quickly or jarring and maybe a surprise, so just watch out for this. Remember to stay grounded and keep it real.

Saturn rewards all the hard work that you do, but you are going to have to wait for the solid, secure, structure(Taurus) to be put in place. You may find the Taurus season of April-May things solidify. It’s a start, now you patiently wait.

Mars conjunct Uranus in Aries:Burns away!

Generally this connection is restless and brings with it a high vibe energy, it also brings with it a break away for freedom, the last chance to get away from limitations. Ideally it’s a time when you want to be assertive, well that’s the general idea. It can also be a sudden surprise in some form, you maybe impulsive, a desire is burning and the agitation gets to you. Taking care and pausing for a moment is very useful if this pair causes you to get ruffled and fired up, because they do bring the fire, it may come through as aggression, anger and being pissed off, people or you, may be overly assertive. Everybody wants things to change and maybe the friction will make that happen. Don’t get to caught up or let your impulses get carried away and take action that you may regret. Afterwards you see where you land, when Mars grounds down into Taurus tomorrow and reality sets in.

Wrapping up a story about identity, action and direction taken from 2010-2011, it’s an ending of Uranus’s time in Aries, where a lot happened, the goal was for you to change, to be someone new, to break away from all of the ties that held your personality in, a new you had to break out. Mars last pass by seals the deal. So, the question is where are you now? How have you changed over the last 7-8 years? How have you asserted, expressed yourself, either willing or being pushed and poked by other individuals, what are you left with? What was the motivation behind the action taken. What have you learnt about yourself from others?

Mars/Uranus conjunct may be asking or showing you, are you sparky enough, what ignites your passion or desire, what sparks and excites you? If there’s no spark, passion, desire and drive, where does that leave you, in what space? Feeling no passion or desire inside may be a good thing, you’re at a blank slate, there’s room for more discovery and working out what you value in the things you desire, which will be handy in the coming years.

Whatever is happening and it will be different for everyone. It’s the ending of a story, of an old identity, “who are you…. now” and where to go from here. Taurus: Mars leads the way enters tomorrow, Uranus follows in March, pay attention to this spot, you will get some glimmer or indication of what the Uranus in Taurus is for you.
Taurus is resources, survival, material, physical realms and values. In Aries you personally(self) were shaken in one way or another, in Taurus areas of money, possession or values are going to be awaken for change.

New Moon in Aries, 16th @11:57 am, conjunct Uranus.

Mercury Rx slowed you down, frustrated the hell out of you, now you have some new information, insight, realizations about all of that and you are ready for the new, filled with energy and enthusiasm/drive for the next step or action you take. Even though you may still be feeling vulnerable and know that a touch of courage is needed.

  • Keep in mind that Mercury squares Saturn(26th), don’t go rushing to far ahead full of enthusiasm or be too impulsive as Saturn will put the brakes on. You want to come out of the gate sure and steady, not wobbly.

Being conjunct Uranus, for the last time in Aries as Uranus enters Taurus in May. Being the last, you are wrapping up this 7-8 year journey, what surprises,  breakdowns/breakthroughs did you endure. Uranus, destabilizes situations that are not strong enough to withstand the volt it brings. Hopefully you have found some insight and truth to you(identity/Aries) and how you work in this life.
Uranus brings it’s on style and unique edge to this New Moon. What’s Uranus? independence, individuation, takes us out of the comfort zone, future plans, goal, visions, opens you up for change and trying something new. Uranus amps up the energy here, gives the Aries Moon/Sun the push to go for the new.

Aries is all about you, what action or direction do you want to take now, what areas of life do you want to start over again with, bring in a new vibe for the year ahead as Aries is the beginning of the zodiac year, it starts now.

Start of with using this high energy for a positive start for change in your life.
Set your intentions, write them out, get clear in your head about the direction or focus you want the year ahead to be. What did the Mercury Rx tell you or show you, part of the information or awakening to help you out.

But most of all how do YOU want to be in the year ahead?

Uranus goes direct, 2nd Jan, 2018!

Gust Of Wind
Uranus has been Rx since 3rd Aug, 2017, now the planet known as the “great awakener” is on the move and move he will. Uranus entered Aries in May 2010, he is moving out of Aries in May 2018 and enters Taurus. Big change into a fixed earth sign. Change, freedom, liberation, ideals, vision and independence are all key words when describing Uranus, he can change your life, it can be chaos. One minute you’re here and then you are way over there.

Uranus would have put you in the land of chaos and havoc. You may have found that it was unexpected, shocking/surprising, in some or all ways. Situations or people may have been the cause of the unexpected changes that were being made. It was all for the greater good of YOU. For you to step up and out of the stagnant place that you had perhaps found yourself in. Not easy though, you would have had to come up with a new vision, idea, a new way of being. Even a whole new you.
Hopefully you have and did let go, went along for the roller coaster ride, you probably in many ways had no choice, as the ground was being ripped right out from under you.

He does a few more miles to go before he gets out of Aries, so for some they may have more Uranus to contend with, there will still be some chaos, change and uncertainty along the way. If you know your chart – from 24 to 29 degrees of the Cardinal signs(Aries, Libra, Cancer, Capricorn) will be feeling this transit most strongly.
With all Uranus things “nothing stays the same”, change is the name of the game.

SUN trine URANUS, Sun square Chiron.
Sun hits it up with Uranus, shines the light on forward movement, progressive and expressive, to expand your life, new ways, something new.
Chiron may bring up some sore spots, that are being poked, you may feel a little inadequacy, have doubts, but the Uranus connect is helping you along.
Keep going, this is a push to go.
Mercury did have that conversation with Venus earlier today, about money, love, future plans or goals, going over something perhaps. It’s a positive talk, collaborative.

Astro Aspects, you’re all fired up!

184_image_2

There is an essence of turning the corner, you feel some freedom coming your way. After many months of feeling trapped, slow, sluggish. But there is still an agitating energy in the air, you’re not quite around that corner.
*
Venus enters Sagittarius and Mars opposes Uranus.
*
Venus themes of love, money, relationship, values and self-esteem changes and goes into the fiery sign of Sagittarius, you feel your life needs an added touch of adventure,  a bit more spice, to feel more sassy. A fresh new look, a more truthful way of expressing yourself, a fun and optimistic approach to your love life. Venus wants to find her truth in regards to Venus themes in her life. You may feel like you need to grab life by the horns, take a few more risks, be more daring and bold, to completely be open for more, more and a little more please.
Mars/Uranus opposition is also adding to this urge to break away from the past and past ways, to be a more true and free. You don’t want to be held back anymore, you want to step into the new direction that you feel awaits you. Mars is seeking the balance but Uranus is shaking it all up, you may feel it’s either…….or.
This of course brings in the edge of impatience, irritability, as you want it….NOW! The trouble with this energy is, it can be a bit harsh and it’s really not the best approach at the moment. Full Moon in Gemini on the 4th, will bring in more info for you to think about and work with.
Keep on working towards expanding and liberating yourself, that’s the long-term goal.
Have patience, stay focused.

 

 

 

New Moon in Scorpio, 18th Nov, 2017!

Sun/Moon in Scorpio, quincunx to Uranus in Aries, Uranus trines Saturn.

There is weight and depth behind your emotions for this new moon. You’re trying to find a place to anchor these emotions but it’s going to be difficult/uncomfortable with Uranus adding an odd feeling to it, you want to reach out to the new, liberating, freedom, awake and alive feeling that Uranus usually brings often in a jolt or sudden surprising way, but this time it’s at odds. Not really sure how Uranus is working you here, a quincunx (150* angle) is making adjustment to something, could be difficult to pin down exactly what this is or even do.

Uranus and Saturn are in a harmonious aspect to each other, stay open and flexible, work with the energies is a good approach, it’s not the holding firm or sticking to (the old ways) with this one, you do have to kinda sit with it, with no fixed outcome or even beginning, as you are in the letting go, and getting ready to connect, you are in the abyss part, the deep, dark unknown. Even though there is a real fixed edge and feeling lurking about. From someone or something? Perhaps that is where the power lies.

Even though you know Uranus is tempting/annoying you with the new, but hold on just a tick to see how to go towards that new. Commitments, deeper bonding, what are you getting ready to sign up to or for. Remember this new moon is in Scorpio, you may have to go deeper within to really find your way out. Which often is looking at the truth, the things that scare you. Scorpio’s roll is to bring light to unconscious things hidden to consciousness. Sun and Moon are both there to accept the others offering of light and dark.

Mars and Pluto are in the background getting ready to square off, this does bring in a tense feel. Both of these planets are the ruler of Scorpio. Squares bring a bit of a crisis feeling, you feel the need to take action however the action may be distorted or off, you might be boxing at shadows. You feel you need to get this sorted, to claim some power back, to transform this thing that seems to be taking forever, dancing around the edges, be aware to not push too far, these two do not mess around, watch out for the anger/rage, disruptive element that is still here within the new moon. Uranus is in a very uncomfortable spot, that may bring in the pop!

Stay the steady course, be awake and aware and listen to what is happening within you, Scorpio roll and his rulers Mars/Pluto are here to bring an end, to bring rebirth and transformation that will eventually bring you the power and freedom you are truly seeking.
