The New Moon of Taurus at the cusp of Taurus is typically a bit raw. We are just beginning to adapt to the newness of the Taurus energies, and when the Moon event occurs in these early stages of the sign, we feel the jagged edges of change a bit more intensely. Be patient for the upcoming Kite formation in a few days, as explained in the Lunar Living article.
We were all eagerly awaiting the change of Mars' direction, which occurred on Friday, the 13th of April. Just as we are unwinding from the Mars retrograde, now we are having to deal with the Venus transitions. Currently, Venus is transiting Out of Bounds while in the sign of Gemini. Plus, in approximately a month, Venus will station for retrograde motion, giving us a whole new set of experiences to explore. Ironically, Mars' retrograde was in Mercury ruled Virgo and next, Venus will retrograde in Mercury ruled Gemini. Keep an eye out for any aspects between Mercury, Venus or Mars over the next few months since they could be especially potent.
The influence of Taurus is expressed through feelings of security and comfort. Taking care of our earth is taking care of ourselves. Spend the weekend being a little more green. Happy Earth Day to all.
