The Astrology

  • The Moon meets with Uranus in Taurus today and continues its tour of Taurus through Wednesday.
  • The Moon illuminates Venus and Mercury in Scorpio, while Uranus intensifies social exchanges.
  • The Sun in Libra has received testimony from Jupiter in Sagittarius and Saturn in Capricorn, and now it’s deliberating. Its next meeting is with the Moon as the Moon passes through Gemini Thursday and Friday.


The Moon is associated with emotions, Venus with giving and receiving, Mercury with communication and thought, and Uranus with social-consciousness and awareness, excitement, breakthroughs, and chaos. The Moon and Uranus in Taurus oppose Venus and Mercury in Scorpio, mirroring our views, thoughts, and communications regarding social responsibilities and justice, personal responsibilities, and intensifying our personal and global relationships.

As Above, So Below

We see ourselves in the behaviors of others. We’re trained to see and hear hopelessness, grief, and fighting. Some will argue that we feel the need to stay aware of dangerous conditions so that we can protect and defend ourselves when necessary. If you accept that line of reasoning, then the cycle is completed and repeated when you respond with feelings of fear, hopelessness, and despair. Or, you can choose what and who you pay attention to. You are 100 percent in charge of you, how you feel, and what you do.

Your emotions are your guide to well-being, and thoughts follow emotions. What do you feel excited about? What breakthroughs and new thoughts have you had recently? What do you see (reflections) that you no longer want or need in your life?

Taurus and Scorpio are fixed signs. Both signs are associated with holding on fiercely to what seems important even as discontent builds: material things for security (Taurus) and emotions to maintain control (Scorpio). The disseminating Taurus Moon reminds us that everything is part of a cycle, and now is a good time to let go so room can be made for new thoughts, beliefs, and actions.
