TAURUS NEW MOON – 15 MAY 2018: Shake at the Foundations

May 2018 New Moon in Taurus


The New Moon takes place in 24°and 36’ of the Earth Sign of Taurus. It strongly affects Taurus and Scorpio Signs and also Aquarius and Leo Signs which are born in the third decan, as well as those having personal planets, points or their Ascendant, near the 22° -26° degrees of the Fixed Cross.

Especially with this particular New Moon, the square aspect between Mars and Uranus affects those who have planets or horoscope points at 29° of Cardinal Signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn) or 0° of the Fixed Signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpions, Aquarius).

A very original New Moon is taking place in the Sign of Taurus on May 15th.

The astrological symbolism of the New Moon has to do with the start of a new cycle that begins as two different principles, that of our conscious will (symbolized by the Sun), and that of our unconscious drives (symbolized by the Moon), meet together.

This merging of the two principles marks the perfect time to begin things as the one will drive the other.

When the New Moon happens in the Sign of Taurus the time is ideal for growing on a solid foundation, for planting the seed for the future, for firmly setting out building your security. For example enterprising endeavors are favored when the New Moon is in Taurus.

The Sign is grounded. Firm and stolid in its calmness.

Taurus. Calm, peace and harmony right?  Very nice, very nice, very nice…

…but NOT with this New Moon.

 

This is the most atypical Taurus New Moon that we shall encounter for a long, long time.

 


 

The chart of this New Moon in Taurus is very similar to the chart of an astrological event of great importance that happens less than four hours after this lunation. If you look at the chart you can observe that Uranus is at 29°59’, upon the very last minute of the very last degree of the Sign of Aries.

This New Moon coincides with the entrance of Uranus, the planet of change and de-stabilization into the Sign of Taurus.

How fitting the new moon symbolism now becomes. A new period of Uranus in Taurus begins as this New Moon happens.

So, there goes the stability of this New Moon…

 

Uranus is not only with one foot inside the Taurean territory, but also it receives a very tight square from Mars placed at 29°43’ of the Sign of Capricorn.

The exact of this aspect happens the next day after the new moon, with the two planets changing Signs simultaneously, and forming the square from 00°02′ degrees of Taurus & Aquarius.

This is first of the three successive square aspects that the two planets will be forming, with the second one culminating on August the 2nd and the third on September the 19th.

How fitting is the new moon symbolism again. A cycle of three squares between Mars and Uranus, in Aquarius – Taurus respectively, begins as this New Moon happens.

This electrifying square is associated with instability, impulsiveness, rushed excitement, reckless action, sudden jolted reactions, revolutionary drive, assertion that shocks, boldness and impatience, bursts of anger, accident proneness, tension and ego drive.

So, there goes the calmness of this New Moon…

 

One more entrance.

Mars enters Aquarius a few hours after this New Moon. From Aquarius, a Sign ruled by Uranus, and at the same time in a square aspect with Uranus, Mars brings once more the Uranian – Aquarian motif into the earth Sign of Taurus.

So, there goes the firm ground of this New Moon….

 

The chart of the New Moon has six planets in earth Signs but the energy that Uranus brings is intense. The square with Mars is tight, the degrees are critical, the Uranian motif is repeated.

This New Moon is not about planting seeds and waiting patiently for them to grow.

It is not about building security.


The May 2018 New Moon in Taurus is about us

 beginning to prepare for the upcoming changes.

It is a trailer of what is to come as the cycle of eclipses in the Leo – Aquarius axis is approaching.

It is the pre-seismic activity before the foundational shake.


The balance has shifted, a new paradigm shift is forming in the following months and this New Moon in Taurus is the introductory chapter of the “Manual of Change”.

Some of the questions that this New Moon in Taurus poses are:

  • How can we maintain inner peace within a de-stabilizing period?
  • How can we build and enhance on our material resources while the very landscape is changing?
  • How we can align needs and will, in an ingenious and innovative approach that does not undermine what we have up to now held as familiar giving us a sense of security?
  • How to tap on creativity, emotional stamina and stay focused with will power towards our goals -all traits of the chart of this New Moon but shadowed by the intensity of the Uranus and Mars energy?

The characteristics of the Taurus Sign hold the answers to these and other similar questions that may arise:

  • Amidst the Uranian shakes, we try to remain calm in our center, open and ready to embrace change.
  • We try to remain a placid Taurus and to not act with the impulsiveness of the Mars – Uranus square.
  • We sense the electrifying vibes and absorb the surge of energy with laid back detachment.
  • We understand that the new security is to dare to deconstruct the familiar and then rebuilt it in a new form.

Such is the nature of the processes that this New Moon sets forth for us. And if they may sound vague, abstract or too difficult to attain, please have in mind that,

…what was once a shocking modernity, it is today’s classic art.

Full Moon in Scorpio 2018

FULL MOON IN SCORPIO – 30 APRIL 2018: The Balance Shifts

Full Moon in Scorpio 2018


The Full Moon takes place at 09° 38’ of the Sign of Scorpio. It strongly affects Scorpio, Taurus, Leo, and Aquarius Signs, which are born near the end of the 1st decan or near the start of the 2nd decan, as well as those having personal planets or their Ascendant near the degrees 7°- 11° of the Fixed cross.


GET YOUR OWN READING!

Prelude

Since the Aries New Moon two weeks ago, the moon has traveled half its cycle. Sign by Sign, it moved into the Sign of Scorpio and now shines, late at night, reflecting the light from the Sun that is in the Sign of Taurus.

This reflection is a culmination. It reflects a turning point in a process that started with the New Moon in Aries, a process that awakened us and placed us at the center of developments.

The previous New Moon was the impulse that pushed us, and now the Full Moon in Scorpio is our emotional response to a need that is deeply ingrained in the fabric of our soul.  The need for a meaningful connection that transforms. It is us desiring rebirth.

All full moons in Scorpio awake a desire for transformation, but with this Full Moon the need is intense and we can now make the difference.


Now we tip the scales. With this Full Moon in Scorpio the shift is made and everything is set in motion.


Act 1 – Balance Shift

There are three strong astrological indicators that give to this particular Full Moon a fated or as I more prefer to call it, evolutionary nature.

Moon from within the 9°38’ degrees of Scorpio opposes the Sun in Taurus and at the same time, both lights are in a square aspect to the Lunar Nodes at 10°30’ degrees of the Leo – Aquarius axis. This is the current eclipses’ axis and actually, if one checks, this Full Moon is not only squaring the nodes but it is also square the total Lunar Eclipse of January the 31st.

This cosmic coincidence connects the Lunar Eclipse with this Full Moon and means that emotional issues manifested right after the January eclipse, things that have been brewing under the surface all this time, have now reached a critical point. We can no longer balance between material stability (Taurus) and emotional security (Scorpio). Now it is the time that the balance shifts towards the one or the other, marking the beginning of a new period in our life.

 

Act 2 – Manifestation

Saturn is retrograde and, from the 9th degree of Capricorn, is forming a tight trine – sextile aspect to the Full Moon in Scorpio.

This second factor gives this Full Moon a serious nature. Saturn, the great teacher, gives us an opportunity to not only discipline the intense emotions of this Full Moon but also eases the manifestation of our will and the achievement of personal goals.

What Saturn does is that it makes a reality out of the tension represented by this full moon and with its retrograde movement, a Karmic feeling to what is being unfolding for us, is emphasized once more.

 

Act 3 – Developmental Patterns

The third astrological factor that denotes development, is the Trapeze aspect pattern that is formed on the chart of this Full Moon.

This is a combined aspect pattern formed by two Learning Triangles, each one in opposite direction to the other. The Trapeze has at its corners, Saturn, the Moon, the North Node, and Mercury.

This trapeze pattern, in its remarkable combination of multiple aspects, suggests a sequence of cyclical learning processes that result in personal development.

 

Finale

All these suggest one thing.

We cannot escape the unavoidable culmination and the making of important decisions.

The fact that between the two lights, the Moon is the one that forms the most aspects means that it is what we feel that will eventually make all the difference under this Scorpionic Full Moon.

It is our emotions that will set the motion and under this perspective it is fortunate that the Moon conjuncts Jupiter and is making a trine aspect to Neptune, because we are inspired.

We intuitively trust that after some initial unrest something good will turn out.

 

Epilogue

This Full Moon in Scorpio is a critical time especially for those having personal planets close to the 9th degree of the fixed cross. Depending on the houses where it falls on our personal chart it may mean:

  • Issues that first appeared at the end of January have now reached a culmination point.
  • Moving to a new house as a result of long felt emotional turmoil with family members.
  • Changes within marital dynamics result in actions that set us on a completely new course.
  • For some women, the realization that emotional intimacy matters more than material security becomes an achieved certainty.
  • For some men, passionate feelings for a woman, that were put aside in favor of serenity, reawaken and the game is still on.

One thing is sure…however it may affect us, this is a Full Moon that will be strongly felt.

Full Moon in Taurus 2017 cosmos of astrology

FULL MOON IN TAURUS – 4 NOVEMBER 2017: You deserve to enjoy yourselves

Full Moon in Taurus 2017 cosmos of astrology

A beautiful Full Moon in Taurus takes place on November 4th  and reminds us of a lesson that we may have forgotten.

The question that surrounds every full moon in Taurus concerns a balance. The balance between the security we feel that we are getting from our relationships with important others on one hand, and the deeper emotional contact we really do share with them, on the other.

We want and seek physical as well as emotional security from our important relationships.

I + Υou = We share, we enjoy and we’ re building something together. But in order for this equation to be correct, it should not only measure the material security but the emotional as well, nor should it be just a ledger of what we give and what we take on the emotional level.


This equation between us and the others has as its purpose to build a deeper union, a sharing, and ultimately what we experience has to result in transcending both us and the others through mutual reliance and trust.


Even if we are single, the concern of this full moon concerns the very value we feel that we have by ourselves. How self-sufficient we feel on our own or if, on the contrary, we need our value to be given to us by someone else.

The aspects of this full moon work magically for our relationships, and the full moon’s energy solves the above-mentioned concerns in the best possible way. Whether we are alone, or in a relationship, whether it is a friendly or another important relationship, the startle that we shall feel by looking at the bright round moon in the sky, will eventually work positively for us. Full Moon in Taurus 2017 chart

This moon fulfils us emotionally. It elicits dream, imagination, romance and idealism. It sustains deep and strong emotions. It favors passion and expression of trust. It is a moon that has optimism.

We shall feel strong and we will be willing to share. The full moon in Taurus will make us strong even if we are single. It will make us feel and know what we really deserve. This full moon gives us a vision. It uplifts and inspires us.

Even for relationships that need renewal, relationships in which the need for more freedom of expression is an issue, the full moon of November 4th is a positive catalyst. It brings patience, persistence, sensitivity and the necessary perception, so that we may communicate more deeply and make our relationship to be bonded more.


It is a Full Moon with an intense dream of oneness that makes us feel good and confident with ourselves and so, as a result, we will feel well and be well with others.


All these are not mere chance but the result of the renewing wind that has started with the New Moon in Libra and is now culminating with this Full Moon.

Until the next New Moon in Scorpio, enjoy the view of the moon and, above all, enjoy yourselves because you mostly deserve it.

 


Find out where the Full Moon falls in your chart

and embrace its promise of fulfillment.
