Moon In TAURUS Weekend Emotional Weather Forecast 3/28 & 3/29/2009

The Moon will be in Taurus starting around 5 am (EDT) Saturday morning the 28th until around 9 am (EDT) Monday morning the 30th.

What is it that we will likely seek to comfort us and make us happy when the Moon is in Taurus?

How can we work with the cosmic energy of the Taurean Moon to understand our self and others?
Is there a way to elevate the Taurus Lunar energies and harmonize with them?

I will try to answer those questions. When I think of Taurus, I think of "Earth Spirit" and also "simplicity". In the image in this post, what do we see? Nature, the outdoors, the lush valley, butterflies and flowers... the enchantment with nature. We are just coming off of an Arian Moon... the hot furnace, the fire. The consciousness of Taurus however is like ancient Celtic energy and what comes to mind is green grass and leaves, birds singing and the seeking of a connection with the Soul of the Earth itself.

In contrast to Aries where the Ram was posturing for battle, the Taurean Bull is tranquil, in control of his world, beyond fear.... no war, only peace. As I said in last month's post when the Moon was in Taurus, this energy seeks peace, tranquility and security itself. And in it's highest expression Taurus finds that security by grounding in the Earth and doesn't want to talk as much as it just wants to feel. The consciousness of Taurus is very deep, yet simple. I will tell you about the lower expression of this energy in a moment.

Maybe you're not typically a nature lover, but what will help your mood and emotional body feel good is to connect with nature in some way over the weekend. You may see that your family and friends have a desire to do something outdoors or tend go off to find simplicity in nature in some way. Mother Earth relates to the bull and so a walk in the woods or a quiet hour by a flowing stream... these are healing cures that would be very satisfying to partake of when the Moon is in Taurus.

Communication from others this weekend may be lacking a bit... again, Taurus doesn't like to talk, and silence is its friend. Taurus is ruled by Venus and so we have to bring "beauty" into the discussion and in the case of Taurus, it is usually beauty found in the natural world. You may find that you (and/or others in your life) will seek silence and simplicity when the Moon is in Taurus. And by the way, Taurus has an aversion to emotional drama and would rather feel the earth under the feet and a tasty bit of fruit in the mouth than to deal with emotional drama and trauma. Taurus has a quiet reverence for silence. If your friends are not receptive to hearing about your emotional chaos this weekend, don't be surprised.

It is sounding like if you want to feel happy and content this weekend, work in harmony with the Taurian energies just described.

The lower expression of Taurus has to do with seeking security in the form of the type that comes from money and possessions. Taurus, after all, rules the 2nd house which is associated with what is valued. And that can be money--the other type of green energy far removed from nature.

This weekend may be a good time to ask the self what is of most value in the life. Is it life's simple pleasures? Or a fat bank account? Issues around those questions could be triggered over the weekend. The Taurus shadow-side involves stagnating the growth that comes from new experience by being unmovable, stubborn and finding "too much" solace in the old and familiar.

Generally speaking, the Moon is exalted in Taurus and brings out a gentle easy flow of emotions and grounds them.

The Moon itself is beginning to wax now, still crescent phase. The crescent phase is inward, passive. From this point forward for a while until the Moon is full again, the energy will begin to build.

My suggestion involves seeking comfort in nature and trying not to focus too much on the bank balance. Harmonize with this Moon's energy by affirming the abundance of nature... look for the buds forming on trees (if you live in the part of the world where Spring is evident) and remind your self that there is always new growth, re-birth and connect with the renewal energies of Spring!

Enjoy the Taurus Moon this weekend! You will be happiest if you follow the natural tendency to seek simple pleasures and allow others to do the same. I will post more later on noting how the Taurus Moon energies played out for me over this weekend. So, more later.....
It's later. The weekend was very busy with work and I didn't have much opportunity to get out into nature. I did feel fairly peaceful and happy; I guess the Taurus Moon energy agreed with me overall. I really don't have many profound comments to make about the Taurus Moon energy that I can think of at the moment, except to say it was a good weekend for my 2nd house; energy going out (work) means energy coming in.
