Yesterday | Today | Tomorrow


It seems natural to want to reestablish our centers of gravity and, thankfully, it won’t require much effort today. In fact, the Moon’s shift into steadfast Taurus at 4:37 am EST is a sweet relief from the excessive energy that was running us around in circles. Everything appears to slow down, requiring less effort to stay on course while giving us more time to enjoy the scenery. Nevertheless, consistent work, even at a gentler pace, is rewarded.

Change is in the air as you find yourself less quick to anger today. Your short temper fades but your determination grows as the Moon stomps into patient Taurus. However, there is no need to overreact to this dramatic emotional processing. Although it may seem as if someone is pulling the emergency brake on your catharsis, slowing down has its value now. You don’t need to see results right away. If you simply hold onto your values and maintain your current direction, the benefits will reveal themselves over time. Persistence has its rewards.

(Apr 21 - May 21)

The frantic energy of the last few days finally settles down, so you can regain your footing. The Moon’s shift into your stable sign allows you to reconnect with the basics as you seek ways to eliminate nonessential activities. In fact, the degree to which you are emotionally balanced now is directly proportional to your physical comfort, so it’s wise to find some time to pamper yourself. A bubble bath, a massage, or just curling up by the fire with a good book and a cup of cocoa will do wonders. Take care of your senses and the rest will take care of itself.

Although you might feel out of touch with the world around you now, it’s just a temporary phase. You may not be aware of the imbalanced ways you are responding to your environment as the Moon visits your 12th House of Escapism. But there’s much to learn from your inner process as you retreat. Journaling is one way to access your subconscious as long as you don’t edit what comes to mind. Leave your thoughts on the page unvarnished since there’s no pressing need to share them with anyone. Novelist E.L. Doctorow wrote, “Writing is an exploration. You start from nothing and learn as you go.”

(Jun23 - Jul 23)

Your tendency to turn inward goes hand in hand with reflecting on your personal history today. Tension builds with regards to how you remember previous events, and this stressful energy beckons you to reexamine your past. Fortunately, you can gain a new understanding about old attachments that still hinder your soul’s growth. One solution to overcome this inner obstacle is asking others for support. Emotional growth isn’t always easy, but you don’t have to work on it in a vacuum. Author Jim Butcher wrote, “Sometimes the only way to carry a heavy burden is to share it with another.”

(Jul 24 - Aug 23)

Circumstances at work may be challenging your carefree character today. You might resist the unavoidable responsibilities ushered in by the steadfast Taurus Moon in your 10th House of Career. But you’re unwilling to take on new tasks if others aren’t doing their part. You feel more intolerant at the office, yet you need to be less reactionary to the behavior of your colleagues. It helps to put a bit of distance between you and the cause of your stress. Even just stepping outside briefly to inhale some fresh air will work wonders. The world changes when you change your perspective.

(Aug 24 - Sep 23)

You are finding it nearly impossible to understand the extreme reactions of people in your world. There is a clunky exchange of information that can lead to conflicts while the subjective Moon in your 9th House of Beliefs argues with philosophical Mercury. Furthermore, all words seem to rest on the tip of your tongue when you attempt to articulate your emotions. It’s as if you’re stuck in a strange liminal space of knowing without being able to speak. Paradoxically, when you stop trying so hard, you begin to regain verbal clarity. Too much looking prevents you from seeing the truth.

(Sep 24 - Oct 23)

It’s a relief if people seem more cooperative today, especially if you recently experienced emotional turmoil. As someone who strives to maintain balance in all relationships, this attitudinal shift is a welcome change. The determined Taurus Moon plows through your 8th House of Intimacy, possibly unearthing a renewed depth of appreciation for your partner. Moreover, it offers you the opportunity to honor your affectionate desires even if you are on your own. Psychologist Brené Brown wrote, “Talk to yourself like you would to someone you love.”

(Oct 24 - Nov 22)

You are known for your legendary ability to cling to your feelings and refusal to let go of the past. Seldom do you allow someone back into your life who has crossed one of your invisible lines of betrayal. However, such a passionate commitment to disappointment is not always in your best interest. The abundance of cosmically creative energy compels you to find new ways to process and release those painful regrets that have held you back and impeded your evolution. Personal growth is easier when you willingly participate in the process.

(Nov 23 - Dec 21)

You may be feeling hypersensitive today, and yet unable to figure out why. Your senses are overloaded while the perceptive Taurus Moon misaligns with bountiful Jupiter. A disconnect between your hopes and reality only adds to your confusion, making it difficult to access your innate gift for optimism. However, this is not a long-lasting dynamic and your positive outlook reemerges untarnished with a little bit of patience on your part. Philosopher Bernard Williams wrote, “Man never made any material as resilient as the human spirit.”

(Dec 22 - Jan 20)

The unstable landscape of personal relationships appears to be more manageable today. Thankfully, you’re quite adept now at sharing your emotions while simultaneously maintaining the boundaries you hold in high regard. You are learning that being passionate does not necessarily indicate a lack of control as the obstinate Taurus Moon and calculating Saturn are happily holding court. Expressing each feeling as it arises prevents problems before they occur. Rune Lazuli wrote, “Inside the chaos, build a temple of love.”

(Jan 21 - Feb 19)

People may react to your quirkiness today in ways that makes you uncomfortable. Nevertheless, you’re probably not willing to change your behavior just to earn someone else’s approval. You normally prefer to deal with the consequences of your actions than to compromise your integrity. However, you might not want to shake things up too much while the practical Taurus Moon marches through your 4th House of Emotional Security. Rather than aggressively justifying your feelings, try flying beneath the radar for a bit. Sometimes, being invisible is a relief.

(Feb 20 - Mar 20)

Staying in bed today sounds pretty dreamy, but sometimes your routine interactions are so demanding you cannot ignore them. The down-to-earth Taurus Moon is visiting your 3rd House of Immediate Environment, requiring you to set aside your fantasies in order to take care of business. Although you might be annoyed by the mundane necessities of your life now, rest assured that meeting your real-world obligations in a timely manner will free you up for further adventures into the recesses of your imagination later on. Magic can also happen when you’re awake.
