The Moon is in earthy Taurus bestowing a warm and grounded energy amongst us. Ruled by Venus, Taurus is the second sign of the zodiac and it is here we come face to face with the limitations of and love of our physical body. Emotions are stabilised during this time and you may find yourself blessed with patience which may have been missing in the past couple of days. Exalted in this sign, the Moon is content and at peace here.
Whilst the Moon is in Taurus, it’s time to get in touch with the body beautiful. Take yourself for a manicure, massage your feet, have a bubble bath. Run your hands across your body and reconnect with the parts you love and those you don’t. If you have scars, honour them, for these scars show you survived. Venus can see the beauty in everyone. If you believe in your beauty, so will others.
Feed your senses – sight, sound, taste, touch and scent. In modern life sometimes we have a tendency to shut down the barrage of the outside world. Moon in Taurus encourages us to become aware. What can you hear right now? What scents are around you? Eat a piece of your favourite fruit and really savour the flavour.
Venus adores beautiful surroundings. Taurus is about the abundance of life. Go from room to room and look at all you have acquired What items remain the most important to you and why? Dust off any prized possessions. Throw or give away items that no longer hold any significance or can no longer perform the function they were intended for. A farmer needs to tend to the weeds as well as the seeds. Check your bank balance and explore websites or books that help you save and increase your earnings.
Whilst financial security is important, emotional security is the order of the day. Your routines during this time can give you comfort. Positive habits help free the mind so that it can work on creative projects. The Taurus moon is ideal for indulging in a natural talent. Arts and crafts, gardening, music and food are favoured pursuits.
Expressed negatively, the Taurus Moon can indicate stubbornness and sloth. If stubbornness is a problem, you need to dig deeper to find out why you are so rooted in your particular way of being. What is it that you are attached to? Sloth or laziness often comes from being in a passive state (Venus). It is in direct contrast to fiery Aries who acts on impulse and jumps into the fray. Whilst Taurus is certain that it is important to take time to smell the roses, he knows that the moment of appreciation is savoured after the hard work beforehand. Often ‘laziness’ is a mask for resistance to change.
Essentially the Taurus Moon gives us a window in time where we can review what we have accomplished and also to look at what we value both in the material world and in ourselves. There is magic in Mother Earth and within each of her children.
