I Want It My Way (Everyone Else Does Too)

The Astrology

  • The Moon is Full in Taurus today and opposing the Sun and Mercury in Scorpio.
  • The Sun and Mercury in Scorpio make a sextile to Saturn in Capricorn.
  • The Moon in Taurus makes a trine to Saturn.


The Taurus Full Moon reflects the light from the Sun in Scorpio Tuesday. Real-world concerns, responsibilities, boundaries, and value are touchstones that may coincide with you wanting more security in some area of your life (relationships, at home or work, etc.). Adding insurance, improving your transportation, investing in some kind of security (jewelry, financial, online, etc.), buying new clothes or outerwear are also expressions of the Taurus/Scorpio energy. Conversations may be more subjective than usual. It’s easier Wednesday – Friday, after the Moon moves into Gemini, to be objective.

Release the Past So the Future Can Shine

The Astrology

  • The 3rd Quarter Moon is in its own Cancer sign the first half of today and squaring the Sun in Libra as both the Moon and Sun move through the final degrees of their respective locals.
  • This waning Moon stays connected to Venus and Mercury in Scorpio, Saturn in Capricorn, and retrograde Uranus in Taurus until it moves into Leo midday.


The Moon helped shape how we track and understand time; it affects the ocean tides; it connects us with the cycle of birth, death, and rebirth. It represents intuitive guidance. It’s the strong feminine energy that illuminates and rules throughout the night.

The Moon traveled through Cancer all weekend, drawing your attention to your emotional roots. You may have been able to reconnect with family and friends who feel like family on the weekend. Or perhaps memories that called forth strong emotions played a big role in your awake or nighttime hours. You might have felt strong emotions around what has changed about you and the life you’re living.

Memories of what was can have such a strong attraction that they hold you to a time, or place, or to people that can exist ONLY in memory.

The Moon in its disseminating phase releases its light. When the Moon squares the Sun, as it is today, there’s strong desire to let go, to relieve the tension that exists between what was and what is. The Moon in its powerful wisdom is demonstrating that only when the past is released can access be gained to peace of mind and to new joyful experiences.

When the Moon moves to Leo midday, its relationship with the Sun in Libra changes from stressful to helpful. There will be opportunities for you to show yourself and others who you are now.  Extract only the benefits from all that you’ve ever done or been in the past and let the rest go.
