Taurus stellium

Weekend update: April 24, 2021. Scorpio SuperMoon energies and the power of Mercury as messenger

The big news this weekend is the Scorpio Full Moon, a Supermoon (© Richard Nolle) which technically occurs on Monday night (early Tuesday morning GMT) – the lunar energies will be building throughout the weekend before reaching its culmination at 11:30 pm EDT.  Until Mars entered Cancer today there was a lack of the water element in the skies – we have lots of Aquarian air of the intellect, and some Taurus earthy grounding energies, but the watery energies of feeling and emotion have not had an easy conduit through which to flow.  The Scorpio Full Moon will change all that: Scorpio is the sign of intensity and passion, the impulse that pulls us into the deepest part of our soul and forces us to experience life in the most profound way possible.

All Full Moons are formed by a polarity between the Sun in one sign balanced against the Moon in the opposite sign. Each opposing pair is a cycle of energy that flows from one sign to the other, each sign containing what the other lacks. Scorpio and Taurus are both fixed signs, both are highly personal signs with one being ruled by Mars (Scorpio) and one by Venus (Taurus). Both are concerned with matters of earthly life, but in Taurus we hold on to who we are, and in Scorpio we must let go of who we think we are in order to become transformed in the purging fire. Taurus seeks harmony and serenity, and Scorpio seeks passion and drama.  The SuperMoon occurs when the Moon is at its closest point to Earth – the Moon appears bigger than usual in the sky, and the qualities of the lunar influence intensifies – higher […]

4.19.21 – Prepare to be planted as Taurus season begins

“Planted” has a double meaning here, since Taurus is associated with the plants found in nature but also the tendency under the Taurus influence to be planted in one place and therefore immoveable.  Taurus is a fixed Earth sign – the most fixed and inflexible of all the signs because Earth is more fixed than any of the other elements.  Under the influence of Taurus we learn to be guided by the wisdom of the natural world.  Comfort and security become highly important, and the world of the senses becomes our beacon.

The shift of a planet from Aries to Taurus takes us from the intense fire of Aries into the placid yearning for equanimity of Taurus and tomorrow both Mercury and the Sun make that jump.  At that point we will have four planets in Taurus – a stellium of fixed Earth energy to inspire us to be nurtured by the devas and elementals of nature.  Under Taurus we can experience more inflexibility and an inability to adapt to new situations, either from within us or from others in our life, so finding a comfortable place in which we can find a sense of equilibrium will help us to gain the most from this time of powerful Taurus energies.
