Waxing Moon Half-lit in Taurus

Greeting Waxing Moon Half-lit (exact @1301 PST) in Taurus


… strength, stability, inspired action …


Energy rises with the waxing Moon. Now half-lit, it’s time to pause, centre, and re-balance. Earthy energy offers deep grounding and stability (5 planets in Earth signs). An influx of Air invites us to take fresh breaths and prepare our wings (4 planets in Air signs). It’s time to tune to what we most value; and time to look ahead. Time to determine what we want to carry forward into the future; and to hone plans.


Taurus Moon brings strength, steadiness and solidity; reminds us of the importance of rest, stillness and nourishing self-care; and draws us into our senses and to simple pleasures. Sun now in Aquarius wants movement and change; to break free from the limits of conditioning; and for things to be new, uniquely different and innovative. We are invited/challenged to both root and fly; to keep foundations strong and to break new ground; and to master both the art of resourced comfort, and the art of r/evolutionary living.


Right now, on Earth and in Sky, competing interests and demands (various squares between planets in fem Taurus and planets in masc Aquarius put them at odds) may be exaggerated or amplified (Jupiter SQ effect). Currently, energies that have been rising make for an electrified, potentially volatile, even explosive mix (fiery Mars conjunct transformativeUranus today & active all week+ M-U also conj Moon + Jupiter SQ exact tomorrow). This is transformative energy that seeks release. The desire for change, and for freedom and justice, has been awakened as perhaps never before. It is time for meaningful action; and time for vibrational uplevelling.


Now it is time to deeply ground ourselves, our values and our principles. Time for more deep breaths. Time to tune to our senses and to clear our minds. Time for calmness, patience and persistence. Time to take practical steps towards expressing and living our personal and collective ideals. Time to move forward into newly empowered ways of Being.


Into rich soils stardust has been cast
Time to bring forth what we want to have last


Send roots down deep for all that is just
to Earth offer your most sacred trust


Gather to you strength, peace, beauty and calm
Rise with Spirit and with new ideals bond


Nurture your Nature
with Love and Light


May strength, wisdom and grace be ensouled
in all that you bring into form this Moon
