Look for the beauty again Taurus. Today the same fiery and proactive energy that surrounded our last New Moon continues, as the Sun comes into a harmonious connection with Mars. This beautiful planetary energy might feel like a sword of light slicing through the last weeks of (comparative) confusion. The Sun in Aries shines rays upon our unique and individual experiences – while Mars in Gemini opens us up to an abundance of new potential pathways to our dreams. Taurus, this all moves through your sector of sensual pleasure and beauty. If life’s been feeling flat or disconnected for you lately… it’s time to uplift your spirit by seeing (or feeling) abundance. Today, seek out the little things that provide your body deep pleasure. Whether it’s just noticing the vibrancy of green leaves; feeling sand between your toes or really feeeeling the warm healing water of a hot shower. Remember: your sign is the one most associated with sensuality!
Taurus, what are you afraid of? Today asteroid Juno stations retrograde in Sagittarius. Juno tends to represent commitment, as well as partnership-style (romantically or otherwise). Whilst Juno is retrograde, we’re invited to question our reasons for being in a partnership. Taurus, we’re asked to reconsider if our relationships are balanced, if our needs are being met, and if our commitment is returned. As Sagittarius is a sign of fiery freedom – this time might just reveal where partnership is limiting our own individual journeying. A theme that’s been recurring this year for you has involved a fear and resistance towards speaking your authentic truth Taurus. As the energies of today move through your sector of fears and shadows, you might be able to receive some direct clarity as to why. Do you carry fears around rejection? If not, what negative consequence would occur if you expressed the totality of yourself?
Here’s to new beginnings Skymates! Taurus, this weekend we have the first New Moon of the astrological year, in the zodiac’s initiator sign; Aries. If there were ever a time to take action… this would be it. The potent energy of the ram reminds us to take charge of our lives and to always, always lead with courage. This is a strong cycle where we’ll be naturally re-evaluating our relationship to ourselves. It’s a time particularly ripe with opportunities of change. Taurus, a lot has been slowly shifting in your life but the heat’s about to be turned up – if you allow it! As an earth sign (and the neighbour of Aries), you will be able to harness an almost uncharacteristic level of impulsivity… which could actually really pay off! If anything has been bothering you lately, today’s the day: change it.
Taurus, clarity is on it’s way. Things are looking up! Today the planets auspiciously shine down on us, with Saturn coming into a harmonious connection with the Lunar North Node. Saturn represents the structures of our lives, as well as ambitions and long-term goals – while the North Node tends to point us in the direction of our destinies. Today we’ll be feeling a sense of lightness and ease in our path of progress. Our next steps will seem clearer, easier and closer than ever. Taurus, today you might feel a sudden sense of clarity about something that’s been bothering you in your career sphere. It might be a new way of looking at an existing situation, or it could be a renewed sense of gratitude for where you actually are already. It’s been a wild twelve months, full of highs and lows. A sense of grounding and stability within your work sphere will do wonders for you.
Taurus, do you feel connected to the universe? Today is one to start shifting your gaze inward, as tomorrow marks the Dark of the Moon period – the last three days of the Lunar cycle. This time creates a spaciousness for the upcoming Aries New Moon (the first of the astrological year). Astrology is the study of natural rhythms and cycles, one of which is the lunar cycle. The DOM is a time to go inward, and to face the shadows we carry. Its energy carries a quiet, healing wisdom. Taurus, the theme of spirituality carries through for you, with the upcoming new moon. The next days will be powerful for deep spiritual practices, things like yoga, ritual, meditation and prayer. Quieten the circumstances of your external world, so you can move your awareness to your inner. You have access to a wellspring of healing, balance and wisdom – and the good news is that it’s within you.
How’s work going Taurus? Fresh approaches and opportunities are brewing today, as the Aquarius Moon joins the planet of expansion, Jupiter. Taurus, this planetary connection means we’ll be receiving synchronistic signs that remind us of the needs of our emotional realms. If you’ve been experiencing a discrepancy between your inner and outer worlds… today you might just receive an epiphany or new ideas on how to bridge them. This all moves through your sector of career and long-term goals Taurus. Are there any aspects of your career sphere which are out of alignment with your ambitions or needs? Perhaps you love your line of work, but can’t stand your workplace. Maybe your studies are taking you in a direction you don’t feel certain about. Whatever the case may be, if this resonates open your mind up to all possible options. When we zoom out of our own equations, we’ll almost always find more flexibility than we’d noticed before. Maybe it’s time to tweak a few things, maybe it’s time to search for something new.
