The Barque of the Moon has sailed into Earthy Taurus. The Moon is ‘Exalted’ in Taurus. Outside of the sign she rules, Cancer, the Moon shines most beautifully in the constellation of the Bull. Taurus power speaks of steady comfort, safety and incredible strength. The sign is ruled by Venus in her material aspect; sense, sensuality, instinct and a healthy appetite.
The Moon represents our emotional and sense life. In this sign Luna brings a warm and dreamy feeling combined with steadiness. Unlike the Pisces Moon which is full of fluctuating yearning and whimsical sentiment, the Taurus Moon is Love as Strength (and strength as an expression of love). Taurus power is tender, resilient, enduring and unbreakable.
Those born with the moon in Taurus are steady and faithful in their love. Once she loves she does not change course with ease, often suffering greatly for the sake of a bond she values. Nurturers and emotional providers, the Lunar Taurean (of any gender) reflects the archetype of the Good Mother. The ancient understanding of Mother wasn’t a sexless Madonna. She was ample, fecund and the sustainer of human life and by extension, the Earth and human civilisation.
We are in the build up phase of New Moon Aries action and endeavours….our efforts gain strength and we achieve something tangible. Our physical sense is heightened and we are more likely to experience emotions as bodily sensations.
Over the next 2 days or so celebrate your senses, build a strong foundation for this month’s work and afterwards rest completely. When it acts, Taurus power is unstoppable, and in rest immovable.
Love, Asha Maria
