TAURUS New Moon on Earth Day (Apr 22) with URANUS – EmBody Freedom-as-Nature!

21 Apr

Dear Cosmic Friends, emBodied on Planet Earth!

The Earth Day (yes – today Apr 22!) NEW MOON in early TAURUS is coming!
TAURUS is the first Earth sign in the yearly cosmic cycle.

Nature has awakened in ARIES. Now, the EARTH delights all our senses, and is ripe for seeding & planting.

The MOON is exalted in TAURUS – so nourishing, comforting and feeding.
Yet, unsettling URANUS, since last year in TAU shows up next to the New MOON – which in turn activates URANUS – as the SUN (Apr 26) and MERCURY (Apr 30) will too.
We’re in for all kinds of surprises and paradigm shifts with the New Moon with Uranus the disruptor / liberator / awakener Archetype.
No boredom. No status quo. No business as usual.


The Crisis we’re now in, esp. since it ‘all came together’ with multiple PISCES influences, influenzas, influencers, and confluences, enhanced through the extensive MERCURY in PI incl retro phase from early Feb to mid-April, can challenge and disrupt our social fabric – and / or wake us up.
URANUS in TAU & SATURN in AQ.
Societies and Humanity are at a crossroad for the Future.

Yet, a Point of No Return can turn into a Turning Point.
Also, since PLUTO end of CAP is now stationary, and in turnaround mode to retro which starts on Apr 25.
It’ll be the first Planet to turn retro after a long No-Retro phase since mid-Jan (except for MERCURY mid-Feb – early March) where outer events rolled out fast & furiously – and have gained a life of their own.
Time to integrate, and check in, esp. when it comes to Power
(PLUTO), combined with responsibility and authority, and established structures (CAP). With PLUTO retro (Apr 25 – Oct 4) it’s time to roll back on giving Power away / delegating / projecting it to the ‘ones in charge’, and find Power within, call it Soul Power.
MERCURY, at the end of ARIES, will square PLUTO & JUPITER on the day when PLUTO goes retro
(Apr 25).
Game changing thoughts, messages, information?

Sooo, the New MOON in early TAURUS, ‘delivers’ URANUS – the paradigm shifter (in TAU since 2018 / 19 – 2026), and PLUTO’s turnaroud.
The Old Establishment & Empire & ‘Operating System’ expires
(says also PLUTO end of CAP – hugely ON in 2020, compliments triple conjunction from JUPITER, Apr 4, June 29, Nov 10).

The Earth doesn’t belong to us.
We belong to the Earth.

And with URANUS in TAU:
Wake UP, Earthlings!

Earth is our Mother.
We are of the Earth.
This is to the Renaissance of Earth Consciousness!

Here’s the in-depth article dedicated to URANUS in TAURUS.

We are Children of the Earth, and inhabit an EarthBody.
Let’s truly treat the Earth as our Home that we love and care for (rather than an exploitation ground). Also a message from the North Node in CANCER / SN in CAP (since Nov 2018, until early June 2020) and their Eclipses.

Latest major one: Annular ‘Ring of Fire’ (with the Corona – yep, that’s what the C viruses are named after – of the SUN visible!) Christmas Solar Release Eclipse on Dec 25 / 26 in early CAP – calling us to release old authoritarian, abusive control structures on all levels – the ‘Old Empire’, and to ‘jump’ out of their Ring.
Next one: Another Annular ‘Ring of Fire’ Solar Summer Solstice Seed Eclipse on June 20 / 21 – planting new seeds from the True Home we belong to. We’re preparing and are being prepared for it…

And now, 1/3 of the World population is ‘out of’ the known economic ‘business as usual’ a la CAP – which of course is quite unsettling when it comes to security and stability (TAU), let alone our need to be social.
Yet, Nature is taking a breather, and the air and waters of our Home Planet show us how fast recovery can happen when humans stop their detrimental impact.
In that sense, a successful ecological experiment!

Many humans are understandably stressed and depressed by being prevented from physical closeness and socializing, given the Corona Crisis restrictions. At least, there’s the option to create virtual meet-ups online (URANUS).
And thankfully, many of us can still be in Nature – where the Medicine of fresh Air, of soUlar Vitamin D, of Springy re-greening and awakening can be found – sooo good for our wellness, vitality, and happiness! Hope you can and do get OUT too!

Yet again, a wake-up call for Humanity, compliments game-changer / liberator URANUS (“I’m outa here.”), to examine (SATURN) the system (early AQ, ruled by URANUS) and what of its status quo pre-crisis is actually now on its death bed and ‘expiring’ since it’s suffocating and unsustainable as-is, for the Earth as for Humanity.
Exploitation and oppression in so many ways have come to a point of no return that can be a Turning Point and paradigm shift.


Esp. as SO much shadow is coming to the Light of awareness now.
2020 is the year of the Big Reveal.
Compliments JUPITER-PLUTO
 end of CAP, where the SATURN-PLUTO alignment happened on Jan 12, and marked the end of authority & control in power structures as we know them (or rather: didn’t know the whole extent of, since hidden power has been concealed and institutionalized).
As we now face the reality, evidence, and effects (SATURN) of what the human-made power structures are capable of (PLUTO in CAP) it’s time to see the bigger picture (JUPITER) which sets us free, brings our intrinsic power back, and affects transformation (PLUTO) since we don’t feed the system energetically anymore.

JUPITER meets PLUTO 3 times this year: Apr 4, June 29, and Nov 12. 
The initial conjunction, brought out by the SuperMOON on Apr 7 in LIBRA – ARIES (Balancing ‘Both’ Worlds) has opened the scene (where many of us don’t buy into the consensus reality anymore and don’t let ourselves be shut down either), while the next one end of June (which will be a BIG month of changes!) takes us to the depth of the issues (darkness and shadow must be seen!). The last one mid Nov can help us move through and outgrow the ‘Old Empire’.

Which helps us with starting to co-build the NEW, as JUPITER & SATURN start a new 20-year socio-political-economic cycle on Winter Solstice(!), Dec 21, 2020, on the first degree of AQ, based on a new / awakened Earth Consciousness (URANUS in TAU) showing up in food, money / value exchange, and economy / ecology, and calling for innovative solutions by a Humanity-in-Rebirth.

 



In the meantime / acutely, SATURN in AQ is squared by the New MOON with URANUS.

SATURN entered AQ on March 21 for a ‘test phase’ until July 1 (full-on from Dec 16 on. A test for Humanity (also ON Humanity?!), esp. to preserve Freedom & Community, despite Fear (and F.E.A.R.), and the Ring of Restrictions. The challenges can actually help forge solidarity and networks in / for Humanity.


Since MARS entered AQ (March 30 – May 12), passed SATURN on March 31 and squared URANUS on Apr 7, the Day of the SuperMoon(!), Freedom Fighters & Light Warriors have stepped up and confronted ‘the system’ – the themes are out, and controversial (the nature of MARS).

SATURN in AQ, the sign ruled by URANUS, squares and challenges URANUS, now in earthy TAURUS (2018/19 – 2026).
It’s high Time to Wake UP, Earthlings! EmBody Freedom!
When if not NOW?!

The square from SATURN to URANUS will be exact in 2021 (exact Feb, June, and Dec), and the closest / most potent this year now, via the Earth Day New MOON on Apr 22 with URANUS.
It sets the tone for more shifts to come next year.

 

When it comes to Freedom, here’s my all-time / timeless reminder of what I learned from spiritual teacher J. Krishnamurti (born with TAURUS SUN and AQ Rising): True Freedom has no opposite.
As long as freedom is a freedom vs. …, freedom from…, freedom for…, it’s still bound and not ‘the real thing’.

My Blessing for the New MOON in TAURUS – on Earth Day Apr 22! – with liberating URANUS:
May we emBody Freedom-as-Nature.
Nature (TAU) is our teacher (Nature is always free since it just-IS), We ARE Nature.
Freedom is our inalienable True Nature! 

 

Gardening and planting can be the perfect body-mind-grounding wellness practice for starters, bringing the EarthBody Consciousness right home at this time where ‘earthing’ is so important.
The TAURUS New Moon and shortly after is the primo time for planting new seeds, figuratively and literally.
Happening in my life and backyard too.


And with New MOON / URANUS: Planting Seeds of Freedom!

 

Earth My Body!
Here’s the video of the song sung so powerfully by young Spirit Elder Nicole Sangsuree  – what a legacy before her body was taken back by the Earth, in Thailand!

 

 

 

Where early TAU is in your birth chart (TAU House, Planets, Nodes, and esp. if your birthday / Solar Return is these days, or your MOON is in TAU) points you to the area in your life that’s now primed for a conception (MOON/SUN, Yin-Yang), and that’s where Seeds of Freedom & Awakening (URANUS) are planted.

BE both active in the ‘planting’ and receptive for what is being planted in you!

Your Presence and Sense of Self

Your Values, what you own, literally & metaphorically, your Business

The Magic of Connection – photo by Melanie Apr 2020

Loving this quote by Eckhart Tolle
(from: A New Earth):

“Once there is a certain degree of Presence, of still and alert attention in human beings’ perceptions, they can sense the divine life essence, the one indwelling consciousness or spirit in every creature, every life-form, recognize it as one with their own essence and so love it as themselves.”

Being Awake in our True Nature, as Nature, in Nature.
Magic-All that-IS.

 

Those of you born with URANUS in SCO (Dec 1974 – Apr 1975, and Sept 1975 – Nov 1981) will have their URANUS Opposition in the years of URANUS in TAU – an awakening / liberation in mid-life which can be a huge catalyst for radical life changes.

All of us (independent of age) esp. if we have SUN, MOON, AC, or Planets in TAURUS (or in LEO, SCO, AQ) are in for surprises too, and we’ll get a Uranian ‘kick in the butt’ to be liberated and reinvent ourselves esp. in the area of life related to our TAURUS House in the chart.

 

 

Let’s take a good look at the

TAURUS NEW MOON ‘birth chart’

The New Moon will be exact at 7:26 pm PDT tomorrow Apr 22.

 

The NEW MOON in early TAURUS approaches URANUS (the MOON connects with URANUS on Apr 23, and the SUN on Apr 26).

  • How can we find comfort in the constant shifts that take us out of our comfort zone – or even pro-actively seek the edge rather than the comfort trap?
  • Can we sloooww down and listen with all our senses, while things are whirling?
  • What does our EarthBody call us to – when we’re in full Presence?

 

SUN and MOON and all Planets entering TAURUS since last year, and until 2026 are being initiated by URANUS.
Things aren’t as solid and ‘matter-of-fact’ anymore as we’re used to.

Calling for like-heals-like Medicine, as in:
Finding and standing our ground, with / despite disruptive, unsettling, unpredictable energies, relating to the Earth herself and to our Earth body…
And at the same time, just as, if not more important: EmBodying unconditional Freedom.
Being in Nature, and in our True Nature brings shifts in Consciousness.

 

The New Moon with URANUS in early TAU is in a square with SATURN in early AQ (ruled by URANUS).
The MOON squares SATURN on Apr 22, the SUN already on Apr 21, and URANUS 3x in 2021, yet very closely and activated by the New Moon now.
Important to stand our ground and be solid, trust our body, emBody freedom in wellness, and not buy into fear & separation that’s plaguing Humanity now.
When others attack and judge you for speaking freely (happened here) don’t go into defensive but keep holding and being the Light.

Speaking of speaking freely and authentically (MERCURY since Apr 10 in ARIES, ruled by MARS):

Purple Delights (with grounded yet light ‘winged’ sandals) – photo by Melanie

The Mercurial Messenger / Communicator / Mind Archetype is about to settle into TAURUS on Apr 27, until May 11!

What a vocal, assertive, controversial, and accelerated phase it’s been, with MERCURY in ARIES since Apr 10 – while MARS (Ruler of ARIES) has been in AQ.
Ready to mentally settle and ground it out?

Buuut, MERCURY will pass unpredictable and not-at-all settled URANUS  first – right at the Taurean entrance ‘gate’ on Apr 30, after squaring SATURN on Apr 28.

Check out the full article for MERCURY in TAURUS – esp. if you have TAURUS in your birth chart.
An incentive for all of us to think about our true values…

Johfra Bosschart: VENUS Rules TAURUS (and the Martian / Aries Warrior at rest)

VENUS, Ruler of TAURUS, and the beautiful ‘Evening Star’ we’ve seen for weeks, is now in mid-GEMINI, and slowing down for Her Retro Journey (only every 1 1/2 years) which starts on May 12 and goes until June 24.


An adjustment and re-evaluation of relationships incl. comparison / competition with others (which come up big time pre- and in early VENUS retro – the LIBRA undertone) to find our intrinsic value from within (the TAURUS undertone of Venus ‘Morning Star’ – as also shown in the painting by J.B. – above the Venusian Goddess riding the Sacred Bull).


With VENUS in GEMINI it’s also about Alchemy of dualities, i.o.w., when we have our Inner Masculine and Feminine and other polarities integrated we own and attract from our own intrinsic value.
More about VENUS in GEMINI and VENUS retro in my blog article.

 

Also in the TAU New MOON ‘Field’:

Light Warrior MARS in AQ (until May 12) in AIR Trine with VENUS in GEM. Their alignment isn’t exact technically, but energetically active for a whole month, Apr 7 – May 7.
Learning, connecting, and meeting in dialogue contributes to  community building. Let the Venusian lightness and the Martian fierceness come together.

 

Some ‘wild cards’ of the New Moon energy are the unaspected Planets NEPTUNE in PISCES, CHIRON & LILITH in ARIES, and MERCURY in ARIES.
An unaspected Planet in a birth chart can be like an outsider of the family / group, yet giving us a strong drive to be ourselves rather than ‘being nice’ to hopefully get love and appreciation (also apropos VENUS pre-retro). We see how fake / compensated this can be, and that we’re only healthy when we’re true to ourselves.
Unaspected Planets are uninfluenced / undiluted by / mixed with other Archetypes, hence come out stronger as themselves.


All this and more relates in the present collective New Moon energy field to

 

  • NEPTUNE in PISCES
    Just coming out of the Scorpionic part (central 10 degrees of a Water sign) which it’s been in over the last 4 years since 2016 and will go back to only once more from Aug – Feb 2021.
    Themes for NEPTUNE in central PI:
    Danger of being swept up and away by pervasive / invasive collective energies that are hard to control. Wanting to disappear, escape, going into addictive realms that end up controlling you. Not ‘going under’ yet looking behind the veil when there are hunches and openings. Processing and releasing…

 

  • CHIRON / LILITH in early ARIES.
    They came together (every 10 years) with the Equinoctial ARIES New Moon on March 24.

    LILITH is moving on now…
    Showing up in our Inner Wild and authentic, original, unconditioned Self is the Medicine.
    Very relevant for the present medical / collective healing crisis.

    Check out what that means to you.
    Of course, that can provoke and trigger others. Don’t take on their blame / judgment. No need to go into defence or please.
    I’ve also found that since CHIRON entered ARIES (Feb 2019 – here’s the full article for this shift), early childhood wounds are coming up for healing in lots of us Humans. The Medicine being to meet them with full presence, regardless how raw this may be, and to let these wounds help you draw out the authentic YOU.
    Cuz it’s YOUR Life after all….

 

  • And we’ve heard from MERCURY in ARIES already –
    I’d be surprised if you hadn’t stepped into this: New Conversation. Fierce & Authentic Communication

    Its ‘grand finale’ is building up for APR 25:
    MERCURY end of AR squares stationary PLUTO (which goes retro on that DAY) and JUPITER end of CAP.
    Dare to think outside the ‘box’ of the consensus reality and other conditioned power structures.
    Do you have controversial news to share?
    Speak with deep understanding and wisdom, and share the bigger picture – with the awareness that there’s never just ONE Truth. 

 

 

Lastly, let’s find the 

Sabian Symbol

for the New Moon at 3º24′ TAURUS:

Rainbow at Corroborree AUS – photo by Tanya Devine

TAURUS 4°:
THE POT OF GOLD AT THE END OF THE RAINBOW.

KEYNOTE: Riches that come from linking the celestial and the earthly nature.

In Genesis, the rainbow is the symbol of the Covenant of God with Noah.
In all mythologies it expresses, in one way or
another, a linking process — or the bridge used by divine beings to communicate with mortals.

What the linking process brings to the individual consciousness is elusive, as the rainbow never ends where you are, yet it is the source of symbolic, universally valid wealth.
All wealth, in a very real sense, comes from “commerce”; i.e. from the commingling of minds and from contracts, and thus is based on faith in the validity of a promise.

At this fourth stage of the five-fold process we are given a mode of operation, which reminds us of the symbol for the second stage, “an electrical storm.” Humans need not be overawed by the celestial display of power, for it leads to a fruitful contact with beings of light. This is a natural kind of COMMUNION, involving a transubstantiation of matter.”

 

Nice link in this image to URANUS (a rare and unique appearance) showing up next to the TAURUS New Moon – like a Rainbow linking Heaven and Earth. Yet it can’t be found in tangible form. Just like Beings of Light.
True Wealth / Value (TAURUS) has to do with Freedom – says URANUS.

There are probably many more layers to the symbol as are colours of the Rainbow. I leave it to miraculous appearances to reveal unique messages to you!

 

May the Earth Day TAURUS New MOON with URANUS help affirm your Authentic Self!

Blessings for EmBodying the True & Free YOU!

Melanie

ASTRO CONSULTATIONS – All ONLINE at this Time

Serving you with astrological guidance and perspective, pointing you to Your ‘Inner Cosmic Compass’.
I’d love to inspire you to be in alignment with, and smoothly ‘ride’, those ‘auspicious’ or ‘challenging’ waves of cosmic energies that present themselves at a given time, and, similar to climate and weather, affect our human energy field.
Why?
Because it leads to eye opening awareness, growth, healing, release, transformation, and you can feel connected with yourself in the bigger evolution. Ultimately, you can dwell in a witnessing place in the ‘Hub of the Wheel’ where you are less and less affected, more and more liberated, and self-realized.

The birth chart is an incarnational map to identify your ‘original imprint’ and themes that are showing up as ‘issues’ in your life. 

I help you see how you don’t need to be unconsciously identified with them, and they don’t have to run your life. I welcome you as a client who is not seeking a ‘reading’ from me (“What’s going to happen TO me?”, “What am I supposed to do?”), but to be supported in accessing your own wisdom source, especially in times of a challenging transitions, stuckness, transformational crisis, or for perspective at a crossroad, dilemma, or empowered choices.

This is to empowered and liberating ways of working with the ancient and timeless gift of Astrology!

May the 4th Mid-TAURUS New Moon with URANUS – New EarthBody Consciousness

3 May

Dear Cosmic Friends, emBodied on Planet Earth!

Being Children of the Earth, inhabiting an EarthBody, and being exposed to the Earth changes hits home for us these years of acute awareness and urgency to truly treat the Earth as our Home (rather than an exploitation ground).

Earth My Body!
Here’s the video of the song sung so powerfully by young Spirit Elder Nicole Sangsuree  – what a legacy before her body was taken back by the Earth, in Thailand!

 

TAURUS is the first Earth sign in the yearly cosmic cycle.
Nature has awakened, and the EARTH delights all our senses, and is ripe for seeding & planting.

The MOON is exalted in TAURUS – so nourishing and comforting and feeding.
The mid-TAU (14°10′) New MOON on May the 4th is in mid-TAU (double TAU) – full-on Beltane energy!
Happy Beltane Week!

In the centre of the fixed signs (TAU, LEO, SCO, AQ) are the ‘Gates of Power’ where energy concentrates. Let’s work well with the Power of the Earth and the Earth in us.
May the Power be IN us – it IS, as we are of the Earth!

Gardening and planting can be the perfect body-mind-ground wellness practice for starters, and to bring the EarthBody Consciousness right home!

Where mid-TAU is in your birth chart it points you to the area in your life that’s now primed for a conception (MOON/SUN, Yin-Yang). 

BE both active in the ‘planting’ and receptive for what is being planted in you.

The TAURUS New Moon on May 4 is close to URANUS –

Wake UP, Earthlings!

Earth is our Mother.
A Renaissance of Earth Consciousness.

Here’s the in-depth article dedicated to URANUS in TAURUS.

 

TAURUS is the Zodiac energy relating to Mother Earth with her Beauty and Bounty, and where we appreciate our precious human embodiment.

And clearly:
The Earth doesn’t belong to us.
We belong to the Earth.

The Spirit of URANUS in TAU also brings a Renaissance of Back to Nature / incl. to communal farming, and a sharing economy.
More and more people opt out of the status quo of destroying Nature in so many ways, and consuming de-natured food. A big trend to have more freedom while working and living with Nature, not at the expense of the Earth.

The Earth herself might release lots of built-up stress and pressure.
The Kilauea quake and volcanic eruption in May 2018, just before URANUS entered TAU for the first time was a precursor… see the blog post: The Ancient, Sacred Earth showing her Power.

Wake-up calls is what URANUS is famous for.
Freedom from complacency, indulgence, and taking wayyy too much time (shadows of TAU), and Freedom for a new Earth Awareness.
We really can’t wait another decade or 5 to do anything about getting our act together (is also what SATURN and PLUTO in CAP say).

The Awakening to a new Earth Awareness, reflected through URANUS in TAU will affect food, money / value exchange, and economy / ecology, and calls for innovative solutions in a volatile world.

 

Orangutans Smell da Roses…

 

Our connectedness with all of Earth’s Beings is being (re)awakened now (if it hasn’t already) – which spurs us into action and can shake others up too.
Perhaps to stand up, rise up, and speak up for those sentient Beings who can’t speak for themselves and need to be protected before it’s too late.

 

Loving this quote by Eckhart Tolle (from: A New Earth):
“Once there is a certain degree of Presence, of still and alert attention in human beings’ perceptions, they can sense the divine life essence, the one indwelling consciousness or spirit in every creature, every life-form, recognize it as one with their own essence and so love it as themselves.”
Being Awake in our True Nature, as Nature, in Nature.

 

How about taking some sweet time for a little TAUREAN inquiry:

  • Where do you stand in this?
  • What has shaken you up and is shifting for you?
  • How do you find comfort in the unpredictable?
  • Underneath a societally-economically conditioned consumer mentality – what truly feeds you and gives you comfort?
  • What’s new and freeing in your relationship to Mother Nature?

 

Those of you born with URANUS in SCO (Dec 1974 – Apr 1975, and Sept 1975 – Nov 1981) will have their URANUS Opposition in the years of URANUS in TAU – an awakening / liberation in mid-life which can be a huge catalyst for radical life changes.

All of us (independent of age) esp. if we have SUN, MOON, AC, or Planets in TAURUS (or in LEO, SCO, AQ) are in for surprises too, and we’ll get a Uranian ‘kick in the butt’ to be liberated and reinvent ourselves esp. in the area of life related to our TAURUS House in the chart.

 

Let’s take a good look at the

TAURUS NEW MOON ‘birth chart’

The New Moon will be exact at 3:45 pm PDT tomorrow May 4.

 

The NEW MOON in very central TAURUS is past URANUS (well, the SUN connected with URANUS on Apr 22, and the MOON today May 3).

SUN and MOON and all Planets entering TAURUS from now on, until 2026 are being initiated by URANUS.

Finding and standing our ground when it comes to unsettling, unpredictable energies, esp. relating to the Earth herself…
And perhaps on a more personal note:

  • How can we find comfort in the constant shifts that take us out of our comfort zone – or even pro-actively seek the edge rather the cushioning?
  • Can we sloooww down and listen with all our senses, while things are whirling?
  • What does our EarthBody call us to – when we’re in full Presence?

Being in Nature as Nature brings shifts in Consciousness.

Again, if you’d like to read up the URANUS in TAURUS Astro~News – voila!

The New Moon is in wide Earth Trine with SATURN / PLUTO retro and the South Node, all in CAP.
Lots of Earth energy nowadays (and counting, as MERCURY & VENUS will also enter TAU).
Showing us quite realistically where timely priorities are, supporting resourcefulness and integrity yet also teaching us not to get attached to certain outcomes, or dragged down by and depressed over what we can’t change.
The point being: Finding the Inner Power centre (not just on May the 4th…) that helps us move with change, and bring out our best.

 


The Mercurial Inner Messenger / Communicator / Mind Archetype, is about to settle in TAURUS too on May 6, until May 22!

What an animated, activated, and accelerated phase it’s been, with MERCURY and also VENUS in ARIES since Apr 16 / 20.
And on top of it, MERCURY in ARIES (ruled by MARS) has been in mutual reception with MARS in GEMINI (ruled by MERCURY).
Ready to mentally settle, after all the rush and action?

 

Buuut, MERCURY will pass unpredictable and not-at-all settled URANUS  first – right at the Taurean entrance ‘gate’ on May 8.

Plus, even though MERCURY is in slooow TAURUS it’s moving quite fast now, approaching its connection with the SUN on May 21 – also the day when both the SUN and MERCURY enter GEMINI. That’s the point furthest away from Mercury retro / right between retro phases.

Some paradoxes right there – only for the linear, habitual mind, wondering… 
How does that go together?
And what are the gifts of that ‘strange’ combo?

Here’s the full article for MERCURY in TAURUS
noteworthy esp. for all of us with TAURUS in our birth charts, and an incentive for all of us to think about our true values…

 

VENUS isn’t quite there yet, but scheduled to enter (her domain of) TAURUS also, on May 15.
A saving grace for enjoying life’s delights, and being even more aware of what we value.
Then, becoming a magnet for our values is quite natural (as long as limiting beliefs and lack of self value aren’t in the way).

For now / with the New Moon, VENUS in ARIES goes into T-square with SATURN & PLUTO retro, and the South Node, all in CAP & the North Node in CAN (May 7 – 9).
It can be a bit bumpy when we’re taking initiative and put out what we love and value – not all is met and reciprocated. Don’t take it as a personal rejection, failure, or defeat, and cut back on judgment.
VENUS in ARIES is a heroine energy – and ‘she’s the apex / outlet of the T-Square, looking for dynamic expression:
If approach A doesn’t work she gets up and starts a different approach. Hopefully with gentleness, care, and compassion, as the North Node in CANCER would support.

 

Also in the NEW MOON ‘matrix’:

MARS in GEMINI (still until May 14) is building up to oppose JUPITER now retro in SAG (exact on May 5).
Sooo many options, so much information, so many ideas, doubts, questions, and thoughts, and soo much distraction – where’s the Inner Heart Truth?

What do your Intuition, Trust, and Inner Guidance say?
Helpful to retreat and gain some space. Go on a vision quest.
Find your Inner WHY, and the direction becomes naturally clear.
It IS a Journey from the Head to the Heart.

 

In the cosmic watery atmosphere, we have

NEPTUNE in PISCES, with a Water Trine from the North Node in CANCER (exact throughout June), suggesting surrender, compassion, adaptation, flow, letting go & letting god. Faith beyond trust.


…and LILITH having just entered PISCES today
May 3 (until Jan 27, 2020) – Our True Nature is Wild and ONE.
Here’s the full article for LILITH now in PI.

 

A ‘wild card’ of the New Moon energy is CHIRON, freshly in ARIES, and presently not connected with any other planetary Archetype, except with the MOON when She goes into a new Zodiac sign.
An unaspected Planet can be like an outsider of the family / group with a strong desire to be oneself rather than ‘being nice’ to hopefully get love and appreciation. Now we see how fake / compensated this is, and that we’re only healthy when we’re true to ourselves.

I’ve found since CHIRON fully entered ARIES (on Feb 18 – here’s the full article for this shift), early childhood wounds are coming up a lot for clients, and for lots of us Humans, I should say.
The Medicine being to meet them with full presence, regardless how raw this may be, and to let these wounds help you draw out the authentic YOU.

Cuz it’s YOUR Life after all….

 

Hoping this TAURUS NEW MOON Article helps affirm your Authentic Self.

Blessings for EmBodying the True & Free YOU!

ASTRO CONSULTATIONS

Serving you with astrological guidance and perspective, pointing you to Your ‘Inner Cosmic Compass’.

I’d love to inspire you to be in alignment with, and smoothly ‘ride’, those ‘auspicious’ or ‘challenging’ waves of cosmic energies that present themselves at a given time, and, similar to climate and weather, affect our human energy field.

Why?
Because it leads to eye opening awareness, growth, healing, release, transformation, and you can feel connected with yourself in the bigger evolution.
Ultimately, you can dwell in a witnessing place in the ‘Hub of the Wheel’ where you are less and less affected, more and more liberated, and self-realized.

The birth chart is an incarnational map to identify your ‘original imprint’and themes that are showing up as ‘issues’ in your life.
I help you see how you don’t need to be unconsciously identified with them, and they don’t have to run your life.

I’m always happy to welcome you as a client who is not seeking a ‘reading’ from me (“What’s going to happen TO me?”, “What am I supposed to do?”), but to be supported in accessing your own wisdom source, especially in times of a challenging transitions, stuckness, transformational crisis, or for perspective at a crossroad, dilemma, or empowered choices.

This is to empowered and liberating ways of working with the ancient and timeless gift of Astrology!

 

Presently, until May 12 / Mother’s Day, ASTRO~SPA for Moms is on!
As a mom, treat yourself, or treat a mom to a 20% discounted Astro~Alchemy session!

May 15: TAURUS New Moon ‘Delivers’ URANUS into TAU: New & Liberated EarthBody Consciousness

13 May

It’s coming, dear Astro~News Reader:

MAY 15 / 16 are not only the most powerful days in MAY but probably in Spring – since they bring several major shifts at once:

  • The New Moon in TAU – where the MOON is the strongest – representing nourishing Mother Earth energy, and food for all senses!
  • Also on the same DAY (3 1/2 hrs later), URANUS enters TAU (until Nov 6, and eventually from March 6, 2019 on).
  • And MARS enters AQ – to square URANUS on MAY 16 (their square comes about yearly but this time quite cathartically, right after BOTH Planets having move into new signs, and MARS being in the sign URANUS rules!).

 

New EARTH Consciousness.
Wake UP, Earthlings, and Collaborate!

For starters, get unstuck, says URANUS in TAU, break free and move forward (MARS squaring URANUS from AQ – the Zodiac energy ruled by URANUS!):

This square energy is SO primed for breakthroughs into new freedom.

Can you feel it?
‘Something’s’ shaking things up where energy has been stuck and unmoving, perhaps where all too much patience and waiting have generated anger, or on the flip side where inner resistance to change can’t hold on any longer.

One of the catalysts for shifts can be a collaboration (MARS in AQ) after so much heavy lifting / plodding along / taking a lot on, under MARS in CAP (since mid March) which could have also led to conflict and arguments (MARS was in square with ARIES SUN and MERCURY).
But hey, maybe you used this energy to get stuff done – great!
And now the freedom!

For the  ‘beasts of burden’ / ‘work horses’ among us, MARS in AQ shows us that in a good(!) team or community, or even ‘just’ together with one compatible(!) friend / partner the energy moves much faster and more synergistic – from a place of group intelligence beyond the sum of the individuals.

Now, mind you, if not used consciously and if too much ego (I want what I want, says MARS) gets in the way there can be also clashes and collisions that can blow up under this MARS – URANUS energy (which comes about yearly but this time quite cathartically since BOTH Planets will have just moved into new signs).

 

Dramatic Lightning through the Clouds (Photographer unknown)

 

So let’s use the shake-up combo of MARS in AQ – URANUS in TAU for conscious highlighting (like a lighting flash) and liberation of stuck energy, maybe in old ‘fossilized’ spots in the body-mind, in memories and patterns, in loyalty to genetic blueprints of the ancestors, in primal fears, triggered by traumanic events or empathy for others’….

Point is, we don’t need to know what and where it is but invoke the cosmic spirit of the Freedom Warrior (UR – MARS) that shows up now to help us shift, and then do something different ,out of the blue, out of the ‘ordinary’, spontaneously, mix up our habits, experiment, follow synchronicity, get a taste of freedom which can have cathartic domino effects.
URANUS represents the Archetype of Prometheus the Awakener and the ‘higher mind’.
Flashes of insight and realization are super heightened now. Don’t (dis)miss them!

And: Experimentation, no expectation!

Try things on, see what happens. Be with friends, random strangers, groups, communities (AQ) whom you wouldn’t have done anything with before or not in a long time. See where the spirit takes you.

The combo of MARS in AQ and URANUS in TAU can also show up as breakthroughs in science, relating to the Earth and our biosphere, and perhaps some wake-up calls for humanity yet also innovations (AQ) to help sustain the Earth (TAU and CAP – with SATURN and PLUTO).
More to come with URANUS in TAU over the next 7-8 years (yes, until 2025/26)!

 

All these liberating shake-ups and wake-ups – LIFE is NOW!
..making us aware of our precious human emBODYment.

What a gift on Mother’s Day!
Gratitude to our Mothers and Fore-Mothers, and to Mother Earth!

 

 

The TAURUS New Moon on May 15 delivers reNEWed and liberated EarthBody Consciousness!

Yes, that’s where it’s at. 
Late TAU has a VIRGO undertone, and calls us to realign with what matters most, starting with health and wellness in our own body and lifestyle, and on the land we’re looking after.
Gardening and planting can be the perfect body-mind-ground wellness practice for starters, and to bring the EarthBody Consciousness right home!

That’s what I’ll do – going out with a dear friend on Wed to spend time in Nature, and get starter greens for the garden, and flowers for the balcony – yay!

 

Earth My Body!
Here’s the video of the song sung so powerfully by young Spirit Elder Nicole Sangsuree – what a legacy before her body was taken back by the Earth, in Thailand!

 

 

The New Moon end of TAU lines up in Earth trine with LILITH / PLUTO retro in CAP: 
The Ancestors and the Ancient Earth call us to do sacred work. 
And yes, it’s about the Spirit and Soul in the work we do, not the ‘heavy lifting’.
And to let our body be freed from old stuck and heavy energies, and free for being Here-Now!
En-lightened Earth Bodies.

 

Mother Nature and our inner True Nature always show: There’s New Life! And it’s growing, abundantly! This is IT!
Life affirming alignment!

 

So, here’s the ‘birth chart’ of the TAURUS NEW MOON

which will be at 4:48 am PDT on May 15:

SO much in the EARTH Element now!

There’s the NEW MOON in late TAU, MERCURY in early TAU (since today May 13), and URANUS about to enter TAU – just 3 1/2 hrs after the New Moon! 
And in solid CAP Earth: SATURN retro, LILITH / PLUTO retro – in trine with the New Moon, and, at the very end of CAP: MARS (entering AQ the same evening, to almost immediately square with URANUS on May 16).

May we wake up in our Earth Body, and find common ground on this Earth we all share, sustained by the unfathomable Ground of Being!

If you’d like to check out the rather epic AstroNews article about URANUS entering TAU – Wake UP, Earthlings! you can find it here.

WATER, through JUPITER retro in SCO in friend-ly trine with NEPTUNE in PI (active from May to Aug, exact on May 25, and once again Aug 19) flushes SO much (JUPITER in SCO) that has come up these months, releases and renews – emotional / energetic ‘Spring Cleaning’.
So, let’s be in the flow, and let it go!

 

Be well, dear Reader, be in Nature, and in your Inner Nature!
