Can you feel it? Big shifts, finally. The moving of stuck energy, finally. The grounding of Venusian breakthroughs, finally. Or is it more like the sensation of being bucked off of an electric Bull? For me its been feeling like a sudden shift out of fighting stance, and into some radical embodiment. We may need to activate our flexibility and ability to ride the bucks of the Bull at this time, and also the wisdom of when its time to let go. This Moon Feels like inevitable change coming to the areas of our lives where we have been congested, complacent, bound up, stubborn and obstinate. For you personally this will relate to which house contains Taurus and the story around your Venus placement.
There are a succession of aspects being made between Mercury, Uranus and Mars right around this New Moon with shifts from Aries to Taurus and Capricorn to Aquarius. These speak of potential for fiery insights and communication, technologically and in the Earth. Is the Earth going to communicate something rather shocking to us? Maybe she has been all along and now we finally have to listen? Will she use fire?
Pele is Awakened. Let us listen. Do we have to breakdown to break through? Breakup to breakthrough? Maybe we can Blast off our consciousness and channel these breakthroughs on the quantum level to manifest change in the physical world without destruction. Maybe we need to slow down, get really really slow and listen to the quantum vibrations to tune them to the key of love.
With Mercury and Uranus highly active and moving into Taurus where the Sun and Moon are there is profound energy around how we communicate around this lunation. Taurus rules the throat chakra by most accounts- which may seem odd as Taurus is an Earth sign ruled by Venus the planet of Love. Where I feel this to be true is that Taurus encompasses the Heart and the Third eye resonances through the throat chakra. Venus needs to express her creativity through physical manifestation- and recent studies in the Quantum realms have revealed that all matter is vibration, and our voice is one of our most powerful creating agents in our physical bodies.
Thus, our potential for Radical Manifestation may be getting an upgrade at this time. I Speak, therefore I am. I speak, and so it is. We speak, and it is already so. How do we speak to ourselves? How do we speak to others? How well do we listen? With our hearts, with our minds? Where have we been stubborn or obstinate? Can we better connect to our hearts as the center of our being, not our minds? My recommendation- dance it out, sing it out, shake it out, jump it out. Work the thymus gland with aerobic exercises. My dear sister and brilliant mind Mia Morgan just posted her suggestions for how to work the Heart chakra in relation to this Taurus time.

Mercury joined Uranus yesterday- the messenger and his higher evolution had a meeting in the final degree of Aries. I couldn’t get off of social media for the first time in months, but it was highly educational. The desire to connect and the willingness to utilize technology to do so is strong right now. How can we balance this with a walk in the woods, listening to the stream and picking flowers for those we love? To connect with each other we must know how to connect to our own hearts.
Venus is in Gemini and is moving fast and out of bounds leaving an inconjunct with Pluto. Are we awkwardly exploring the boundaries of our curiosity to flirt with intensity? As we have all been reflecting since the Scorpio Full Moon- intensity offers a richness to life, but one that must be balanced with the simple pleasures of day to day living. Taurus teaches us about this potential. Uranus entering this sign should keep this from becoming monotonous, but instead might show us the revelatory potential that Radical Simplicity and Presence can bring.
The Moon will complete a trine to Pluto just before diving into the Sun for her monthly rebirth. What are the shadows of your Taurus nature? As I stated above- where have we been stubborn, unrelenting, digging our heels in, stagnant, resisting change, complacent, fearing the unknown and refusing to complete our lessons?
Surrender now- if you chose, if you are done, those things which no longer serve, which block your way. The Bull doesn’t move easily, but when he does he is hard to stop, so set the mark of where you wish to go once you surrender those old patterns. There is an art to letting go and doing our best to “aim” where we will land. I’ve been working my intentions for ceremony in two columns: Release and Replant.
Uranus enters the sign of Taurus hours after the New Moon. With this I think we will begin to see our technology become much more organic and grounded and healthy for our bodies- hopefully not before the unconscious designs have reeked too much havoc. Not to mention GMO’s and their effect on the body. It’s time for us all to think about the effects of unconscious progress for the sake of progress in our technological tinkering with Nature. We need everyone on board to be thinking and innovating new ways of living with this Earth in a healthy, balanced way.
This does not have to mean sacrificing our modern or comfortable life, but may bring about new balances and reveal to us new perspectives. Like maybe we actually feel better when we heat our home by chopping wood and building a fire. Maybe that fire warms us from the inside out. Maybe this act preserves our bodies’ full range of motion, strength in our joints and limbs and prevents arthritis.
Maybe the New Modernism will free us up from the 40 to 80 hour work weeks that keep us from having time to be present. How can we vision a New Technology that supports us in deeper more intimate Earth contact, immersion and Unity? Most if not all of the technologies to do this already exist- when will we demand a revolution? How can we Co-Vision a New Modernism that enhances our quality of life by nurturing both our bodies and the Earth’s body? Have we forgotten that the two are really one?
May we feel more embodied and at Home on our Mother Earth.
