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.
