A potent Medicine Buddha Moon is now exalted in earthy Taurus. This first quarter Moon proffers a chance to soothe and organise the mind during a wild and windy Aquarian month. This ability to steady and ground oneself is helpful in stabilising meditation, as well as within relationships – especially those valued aspects (of self) which are in final phase of a powerful transformation.
In tight aspect to the Water Bearer, the waxing Taurus Moon
highlights the good things in life which help us heal: food, flowers,
and friends. By honouring simple pleasures shared with loved ones or
effortlessly savoured alone, the boost to the immune system and recovery
that occurs when happiness abounds is enormous. And even one moment of
restorative awareness, caught and congratulated, can be goodness
multiplied when dedicated to benefit of all beings.
__/♥\__With versatile Mercury going retrograde today, and Venus just
having come out of retrograde, plus Mars now in the shadow phase of its’
retrograde on March 1st, the personal relationship planets are
certainly gyrating in the heavens. Even the most solid alignments can
swivel and turn (in the nicest possible way) to change direction, goal
or intention, which is why it’s important to now hold one’s space and
get comfortable within one’s own skin (as best we can) during this first
quarter Moon phase; because the planets of rapport and affinity are
currently keeping everyone alert to evolving within the variable
creative tension that naturally arises between interconnecting loved
Ones and friends, family and colleagues. En route to the Valentine’s
Full Moon, the trick is to now nourish the soul and make LOVE healing,
sweet and wholesome.
