Wednesday April 22 (9:27pm, CT) the new moon is in Taurus conjunct Uranus.
The sign of Taurus is in the element of earth, craving security, dependability and is fixed in quality to maintain steadiness. But the new moon’s conjunction with Uranus, the mover and shaker, indicates a holding pattern of tumult. A dynamic between order and chaos continues, yet a potential for breakthroughs exists within confinement. How can necessary structures be held in place while fielding unpredictability? As the sun enters Taurus, new patterns are solidified. A continuation of cautious boundaries is suggested by the planetary aspects.
In springtime, the newly thawed earth is readied for planting season as Taurus is connected to fertility and wealth. “Seeds” planted during this new moon integrate technology and out-of the-box methods within strict parameters. How can this be used as a motivating force?
Venus in chatty Gemini is inspired by Mars (the go-getter) to make a virtual connection. Venus in Gemini shares ideas & love through communication. An aspect between Neptune and Venus hits a note of sadness and longing. A romanticized ideal of the past clouds clarity. All is not what it seems when needing an escape route. Yet this can also inspire the imagination and fuel creativity.
Notice any strong winds in the weather? Recently the planets have moved into more air signs (Venus, Saturn & Mars) and the weather patterns mirror this!
Coming up in May is Venus’s retrograde in Gemini (amongst other astrological events of note). Venus retrogrades are known for breaking rules and shaking up patterns in love; re-identifying what is of value in relationships and money. More to come later . . . take care.
