As I write this, the Moon is fresh into the sign of Taurus and exactly conjunct Uranus at 1°. Uranus is in the process of retrograding back into Aries until Early January, when it will station direct and make its final push into Taurus for the next seven years.
There is much talk of Uranus’ ingress into Taurus having an inevitable effect upon the global economy, as well as our own personal economies. Related to that is the fact that Uranus will also have an effect upon how we feel about ourselves in general. Taurus represents that which makes us feel like we have the supplies and resources to survive, which of course means our money and our material belongings. But that also boils down to our self-esteem and self-worth, because without either of those we struggle immensely to survive and fend for ourselves. So, this brings us to Uranus and the Moon…
Although Uranus is the closest of the outer planets, it still takes seven years for it to move through one zodiac sign. This means it has its way with all of us at a relatively glacial pace. It imbues shades of progress, raising the bar, scientific advancement, higher consciousness, and idealism, yet it also can spell shocking disruptions, electrifying spontaneity (yes, literally), elitist mentalities, and unhealthy detachments. In the sign of Taurus, Uranus is going to shake up these tendencies in all of us. It will let us know, perhaps shockingly so, if we are feeling good about ourselves for the wrong reasons (do we feel better than others because of our social status or wealth, do we avoid situations because we don’t want to appear dirty or lower than our peers?). But positively, Uranus will beckon us to upgrade our self-esteem, advance our perspective on the world through awakening to a higher consciousness, allow us to reevaluate how we approach our worth through lessons in humility (crumbling elitist mentalities), and ultimately bring us all into a higher awareness of the value of our resources as a collective. What is this bright blue ball spinning free worth to us? How can we ideally advance humanity to respect collective resources? How do we regulate the global economy while minimizing corruption? Will cryptocurrencies evolve more into the mainstream in order to counter the rampant fraud associated with our current state of affairs? Will there be a new method of exchange? We shall see.
Moon was just full in Aries on Monday night. This was a powerful full Moon because it occurred at 1° Aries, which is pretty much the absolute beginning of the zodiac. Talk about a brand new cycle for us all! It shined upon us telling us to begin anew, stand up and fight, and TAKE ACTION! Now that she is in Taurus, especially conjunct Uranus, we are being called to recognize our resources, recognize what they mean to us, and truly understand how they can provide for our family, our home, our security, and our progress moving forward. This beautiful deity is shining beams of ideas down upon us, asking us to listen quietly so we can hear how we can feel strong, confident, and capable of sustaining ourselves, while at the same time channeling the higher ideals and awakening creative visions of our futures. It can be bring artists flashes of immense personal inspiration, helping align our emotional processes in rapid downloads of creative enlightenment.
Remember, Moon travels through each sign for only 2.5 days, so don’t miss this opportunity to find quietude so you can listen to the Moonbeams charged with the frequencies of Uranus channeling the outer depths of Taurus.
We can all identify with an innate desire to raise the bar on our self-esteem, how we value ourselves, and how we sustain our own lifestyles. We need to recognize how to approach these desires with a higher consciousness so that we are not seeking them for mundane base purposes, but instead to build a sustainable future for ourselves and those we love. Taurus appreciates everything that is truly built to last.
