Sun transit through Taurus

taurus

Spring has sprung, love may be in the air, the weather is warming up and our attention turns to enjoying the finer things in life.  According to the Tropical astrology  the Sun is exalted in Taurus from April 21, 2015 through May 20, 2015.   Taurus’ key phrase is “I have”.  It is the “steadfast worker”.  Being a fixed sign, occurring in the middle of the season when the energy of the season is at it’s height, Taurus can come off determined, powerful, intimidating and often stubborn.

In Taurus, the Sun is methodical, sensual, and receptive. This may not be the time for brilliant ideas or innovation but it is the time where you will have the tenacity and strength to follow through all the projects that were initiated during the Aries Sun.  You reap what you sow and this is the time to put in the work.  The Bull also motivates us to attain a level of very basic security, the kind accumulated through routine and through taking things slow.  Taurus is loyal to all that is familiar, and values longevity. The shadow side of Taurus is possessiveness and bullheadedness.

When the Sun moves through this earthy sign it’s time to stop and smell the roses.  Earth signs are practical, down to earth and they tend to be material and play it safe.  The Sun’s transit through Taurus is an invitation to get more grounded, practical, and enjoy our senses.  It’s time to reconnect with your body, being physical beings and all…  It’s time to honor your physical needs.  Taurus is all about engaging your senses…  a rewarding nice bubble bath, enjoying savory foods, the joy of physical touch.  Take the time to literally stop and smell the roses or get some bodywork done… align your energy fields, get a massage.  How about a healthy, tasty and nutritious diet?  Make dietary changes that will nourish and support your body.  Make time to honor Mother Earth and nature.  Sit outside for a couple of minutes during the day….get to know your land.  Watch the animals that live in your property, listen to the birds.

This is typically the time where plants start to take root, inspiring us to create better habits and routines for ourselves.  Taurus is ruled by Venus and Venus rules the throat and kidneys.  Our throat chakras may become vulnerable and need special attention and healing.  Venus is the god of LOVE and during this transit it puts the emphasis on a lot of self-love.

Taurus is also associated with money.    Around this time people seem to spend more money.  They indulge in the finer things in life, things that will bring tactile pleasure.  This is also a good time to work on manifesting more wealth and cash flow…work with this energy.

My second child is a Taurus and he always has to “have” things.  He is constantly asking “Can I have it?”..money, sea shells, rocks.  He touches everything and puts it in his mouth…engaging the senses.

Aries New Moon

new moon in ariesThis Saturday on April 18, 2015 at 2:57 p.m., we greet the Aries New Moon.  At the Aquarius New Moon you claimed your weird.  At the Pisces New Moon you connected with your Inner Muse so you can lead with Spirit.  Now at the Aries New Moon it’s time to take your weird self and shine*…Start something…*  Destiny is calling.  We are transitioning through a set of 4 fated New Moons, starting with last month’s New Moon in Pisces.  That means that it was in the end of a sign getting ready to transition into another constellation.  So we are having a little bit of both energies at play here with the New Moons.

When the Sun and the Moon meet up each month at a doorway, as in a New Moon, there is an alchemical call to turn what is lead within you, meaning your chattering mind, etc., into gold. *  Tracking the New Moon energy you’re reflecting a real deep relationship with the Moon.  And if you respond to the Moon, she will respond kindly back to you.  When you show up and work with these energies,  a doorway opens and something reveals.

At this New Moon, What are you being called to revolutionize?  Aries is all about new beginnings, blazing new trails, initiation energy of really making things happen.  It’s all about taking action.*  But before you can take action…what is needing to be healed will show up.

How often have you had these things or ideas that you are ready to birth?  And you show it to somebody, and unfortunately, they just don’t get it and they just YUCK on your YUM.   Where have you been YUCKED on and where are your YUMMY moments?  At this lunation, make a two column list.  On one side put YUCK and on the other side put YUM.  Make a list of those things you feel YUMMY about.  Whatever makes your heart sing and soar when you’re doing it.  And on the other side put those moments where you have been YUCKED on.  Those times where somebody’s intention bubbles up and says “You can’t do that.  Who do you think you are?  Why are you doing that for?”    How have you YUCKED on other people’s YUM?

fire breathingThere may be a teaching that wants to come forward or it may be part of your leadership right now.  There was somebody who just stomped on and crushed what you wanted to do…. a teacher, family, spouse, friend.  And now you finally have the spiritual muscle and are ready to do it.   There is no doubt in your mind that you’re ready to do it.  This is the space and place to claim it because 29 degrees is not just something that you want to ignore.  It’s Fated…It’s Destiny.*  You are going to have to connect with and trust your inner spirit that what you are doing is the right step and that it’s gonna lead you to where you want to be.

This is not the time to sit back.  You need to figure out what you want to do….Who you want to be…Because you’re planting seeds that 6 months from now you will harvest at the Aries Full Moon.  You’re going to be harvesting whatever intentions you planted these next couple of weeks;  So plant well.  Take advantage of the energy.  You just don’t want to go to sleep.  This is a time where you can manifest your dreams in a quicker way.  This is also a great time for Vision boards.

Stop discounting your inner knowing and allow divine guidance to come forward.  Tell people what you know in confidence.  Come out of the closet with your spiritual gifts and wisdom.  There is a lineage of grandmother’s and women who are holding space for us and all you have to do is show up and say YES.*

Wherever Aries is in your chart, that’s where you are called to lead.  Where is Aries in your birth chart?  That is where the action is right now.  What house?  Are there any other planets in that house?  Are they at 28 degrees or 29 degrees in Libras, Aries, Cancer, or Capricorn.  If so, then this New Moon is activating those planetary energies and asking you to tell your story in a different way.

There is a little bit of BIG ME vs. LITTLE ME energy going on here.  Your BIG ME is attributed to the Full Moon. It is the part of you who goes out and gets things done.  Your LITTLE ME is attributed with the New Moon and is the part of you that is still wounded.  It’s saying “Are you sure we can do this?”  Typically a New Moon occurs before the Full Moon but these past couple of months it has been reversed.  We had the Libra Full Moon last weekend before the Aries New Moon coming up on Saturday.  In Libra you are called to partner, balance, and harmonize and in Aries you are being called to lead, pioneer, and blaze new trails.

How are you being called to step up and lead.  It’s time to make a decision, at each Aries New Moon, that you claim whatever your part in the puzzle is.  You need to be firm in the conditions of what you want.  Stand ground.  What do you want to do?  How are you going to get it?  And if you’re confused, just take a breath and spend the next couple of days in nature and ask “Where did my YUM get YUCKED on?”  Because somebody in your past told you that you had to remain small.

marsMars is the ruler of Aries.  When Mars is trying to get healed it will flash into anger.  There are many types of anger.  We are human beings meant to cycle through the energy of emotion…joy, happiness, sadness, anger, etc… Since the Libra Full Moon people have been getting angry.  This is a good because when anger is expressed in a healthy way, it turns into passion.  And movements start from passion.

If you grew up in a family where anger was not allowed to be voiced then you may have a low, small voice.  And those issues of not being able to tell your truth… the anger behind the smile, is coming out for you to deal with so you can finally heal and move on.  And if anger shows up…birth that energy.  Give it a voice.  Give it some action.  Shout it.  Go to the beach and kick waves and yell “I’m really f***ing angry!”  It’s the best thing that you can do because instead of that energy being trapped in your body, it’s now been activated.

Venus, your heart knows what to do.  She knows what she wants to create, and now she gives Mars her marching orders.  Because Mars will always be in service to Venus.  Mars can take things and run with it.  It wants to motivate, fire things up.  So celebrate the anger.

What are you longing to create for yourself in your business… in your relationship… in your family?  You want to look at the task at hand.  What story is begging to be told.  Aries is all about asking you to take a risk.  Mars is a great energy.  It takes your intentions and helps to move them into action.  Mars is important.  If you don’t have a healed Mars, you will be trying to get things going but it just won’t get anywhere.  You need a healthy Mars.  Where is Mars in your body?  Where in your physical form are you holding all that Mars energy.

aries in the skyThese next three New Moons are going to be very important celestial events.  Aries is your ability to lead.  saying “YES” to leadership.  BIG ME vs. LITTLE ME energy.  Taurus is about your self-esteem and self-worth.  Do I have a grounded knowing who I am, what my value is.  I know how to create abundance.  I know how to ask for the money.  Gemini is about your voice.  Giving voice to your truth.

What’s your Yum gonna be this week leading up to the New Moon?  It’s a 9 month birthing process.  You’re gonna start to see stuff from this in 6 months and by January you’ll see it fully formed.
