Moon in Taurus - The Moon in Taurus grounds us; it slows us down and wakes our sensual nature and stubbornness, helps us dig deeper roots. This transit is a time to: garden, plant, cultivate seeds, relationships, and ideas, make love, nurture and take a stand. This lunar transit concerns money, work, property, the body, being conscientious, growth, sensitivity, planting and emotional patterns based on
security. The energy flow is even and a time for us to experience the sensual. The forceful forward movement of Aries becomes solid, calm and patient during Taurus. There is a desire to protect material goods and a strong need for financial security. The middle of Taurus is a good time to continue or finish projects. Taurus gives attention to order and detail. Emotionally there is stubbornness, but great sensitivity to others. This sensual sign is a good time to appreciate the wonders of the beautiful earth. During a moon transit in Taurus you might want to work in the garden. Moon in Taurus is the best time to work magick for love, real estate, material acquisitions, and money. Healing rituals of the throat, neck, and ears are also done during this period of time. Someone born under a Taurus Moon roots deeply and changes slowly; she collects, touches, supports, sees the sacred in the world of matter. Steady he/she can loan their strength to others, but may need to learn the beauty in change.
Moon Day - the Day of Remembering and Feeling.... there are minor magickal energies to resolve domestic issues.
Tomorrow is the New Moon at 2:50AM EDST - also the Moon goes v/c from Taurus and will move into the Mutable Air sign of Gemini on Wednesday at 1:09PM EDST. So any Taurus workings you want to do, do them tonight. Also, tonight is Hecate's Night; be sure to pay homage to Her.
