Taurus Moon, 2nd quarter
Mars in Scorpio opposite Uranus in Taurus 12:23 PM EST
Eclipse reports will be going out today and tonight, so keep an eye on your inboxes, my distinguished clients!
Moon has now plodded into Taurus, where we are steadily heading toward a Full Moon with Eclipse at 27 degrees on Friday. The exactitude of this lunation occurs in the early hours, though, so if you are in the US, it technically will happen Thursday night into Friday morning. Now that Moon is in Taurus, we are beginning to enter that strange and elusive territory that is Eclipse time. It’s been building, but it’s about to get REAL. Moon will square Saturn in Aquarius at 1:19 PM EST today, grinding progress to a halt and demanding that we consider alternate approaches. Stubborn Taurus Moon will take some convincing. Moon will trine Venus in Capricorn at 7:39 PM EST, an opportunity to get to the heart of relationships and consider their value to us…it is time to show love in practical, grounded ways that sustain and nourish. Moon will make a conjunction to Uranus at 9:44 PM EST, shaking things up at the foundation. Uranus is an awakening energy, so prepare for emotional shift. Moon will then make an opposition to Mars in Scorpio, provoking any hidden feelings to make their way to the surface. Things can spiral quickly tonight, so be aware…it will not take much at all to ignite tense situations.
Uranus and Mars will face off in an opposition today, and this one may be particularly volatile. Uranus is an unpredictable force, and Mars in Scorpio is tenacious about what it desires. There is no holding back under this opposition. This one can trigger tempers and highly erratic behavior, so tread cautiously today. This aspect may trigger shockwaves of what will culminate for you in the Eclipse, so pay attention to any surprising or unexpected issues that arise today. This tension may feel disturbing and provocative, and the entire point is to shake us into a deeper awareness. Mars in Scorpio isn’t afraid to use whatever means necessary to get what we want, and Uranus in Taurus seeks to take a stable, grounded approach…craves change that leads us to that stability. Any time Uranus and Mars get down and dirty, it can be fireworks or it can be dynamite…just remember that both can be beautiful, but both can leave deep scars. We are all feeling the waves of change that arise upon Eclipse, and this aspect today will ensure that the only certainty we can count on right now is uncertainty. This is where we have to get over Scorpio suspicion and learn to trust, and get over stubborn Taurus methods and be open to unconventional and questionable tactics to get around obstacles.
