secure and sensual as the moon grows full in Taurus today, and we will really notice it if we don’t. The mood is impulsive, stubborn, hungry, possessive, and potentially cuddly.
Spiritual or emotional matters can affect us this week as much as our need for physical comfort. The sun and Mars interact with Neptune, the planet of intuition, spirituality, and escapism. Our intuition may be unusually good, and our imagination can crank up and spill into our creative work or distract us with false fears or hopes.
The grass may look greener on the other side — but it’s probably an illusion. As the weekend begins, Venus and Mars are in relationshiporiented Libra as emotional Venus opposes restless Uranus. This can make a relationship that is just out of reach look good, or leave us thinking someone has a crush on us when all they did was return our f lashlight. But if we’re ready to let go of an old nonfunctional relationship, this aspect helps us shift gears.
Our minds open up but our focus may go out the window as Mercury enters outspoken Sagittarius on Sunday, just as the moon enters conversational Gemini. Think about a journey — whether planning holiday trips or traveling to a more philosophically spacious mindset.
Midweek, people grow more guarded or irritated. Think twice before escalating an argument as the moon enters self-protective Cancer while Venus enters Scorpio. Perspective returns on Thursday with the moon entering Leo, but we may feel cynical and tugged between our introverted and extroverted sides. Accept people as they are as a pugnacious stubborn streak surfaces.
Leading up to the full moon in Taurus tonight, our embodied needs, hungers, and longings — as well as our desire for territory — can nudge us into a wrestling match with fate or stir up deeper questions of spirituality. There is a flash of recklessness as Venus opposes Uranus this evening. Instant gratification sounds good, but don’t settle for short-term solutions that cause long-term problems.
Refill the wells this morning. Physical comfort feels like a necessity. After the full moon, we may feel tired and long for grace, balance, and civil liberties.
Nerves gear up, and conversation improves. Our energy can get scattered as the moon enters talkative Gemini while Mercury enters far-seeing Sagittarius. We think about journeys of the mind, body, and soul.
Gossip f lies as the mood is communicative; we are curious about others. Take advantage of this curiosity to make new contacts and investigate leads. Our attention wanders during the daytime but focuses after dinner. Use this seriousness to pay bills and follow up on emails as the moon opposes Saturn.
We may be concerned that we’ve forgotten, mislaid, or miscommunicated something this morning. Questions of mortality bring into question our petty concerns as Venus enters Scorpio while the moon enters Cancer. We want to feel safe — the energy turns inward, and emotions gain strength.
Find a balance between the homing instinct and the need to explore. Reach out through the internet, buy tickets, or investigate while staying within a comfort zone. Early morning heaviness can lead to a change in routine tonight as the moon first opposes deep Pluto and then squares restless Uranus.
A mortal question or world event asks us to look below the surface and tap into what matters. It may be hard to see around the corner, and we may have to defer what we want to make room for.
