This new moon in Taurus squares Saturn in Aquarius, brings in tension, an edge to the energy, it may involve a new set of rules or responsibilities, feelings of frustration around delays or restriction comes with it. It’s a waiting game while trying to manifest this new start (it’s about the long term changes) under this Taurus new moon be patient, dig in and do what you have to do, be resourceful and use the resource you have while you wait.
Don’t over complicate it, (even though it’s all too complicated), keep it simple as much as you can. It’s all about the waiting and what you do in that time. Do the Taurus thing go slow, be steady and sturdy, eat the food you love, sleep, pamper, nourish and nurture yourself, and while you have the time, go look at what really matters to you, what really do you value(Taurus) in areas of money, love, where you put your thoughts, time and energy. Don’t waste your time or energy on things that know longer bring you joy, value and real meaning to your life. You don’t want to use your future energy up now on things that no longer bring value or joy. Plus what do you want to take into the future with you?
Sun and Moon both meet up with Uranus after the new moon, this can bring in some form of liberation around restriction, a burst of energy or information that lightens things up. It is Uranus so it can be delivered quickly or jarring and maybe a surprise, so just watch out for this. Remember to stay grounded and keep it real.
Saturn rewards all the hard work that you do, but you are going to have to wait for the solid, secure, structure(Taurus) to be put in place. You may find the Taurus season of April-May things solidify. It’s a start, now you patiently wait.
The Full Moon in Pisces is supported by a Grand Earth Trine -Virgo Sun, Uranus Rx in Taurus and Saturn Rx in Capricorn make up the easy and smooth flow. Uranus’s innovative ways of change, Saturn’s structure, rules and commitment, Virgo’s practical application for something to be fixed or improved on.
Pisces Moon is at the top Grand Trine, sextiles with Uranus and Saturn, makes this into a Kite (that’s the release point for the trine’s) here something may go or you find something really solidifies for you. Saturn and Uranus are both Rx, not dealing with something new it’s an old story.
Pisces Moon – dream into the magic, tap into the realms of spirit, a place where dreams are made of, let your imagination run wild and free to land onto the earthly realms for the dreams to be picked up and become real and true.
Pisces – something is dissolving, dissipates, melts away from you or for you, Pisces is the flow, find the natural way to go, you can’t force this into a particular place. Allow the magic of spirit to guide you along.
Full Moon’s the ending, culmination point, fling it away or drop it off. With the influence of the Grand Earth Trine, whatever is solid in your life after all the changes that have been going on since the beginning of the year. It’s manifestation time too, earth solidifies things into reality, anchors it all down. This is good, as the Full Moon’s a release point, to finally let go, so something else can now take its place. For some of you, you may find it’s the next step on the journey that you have also been on since March, May or even before. The Earth Trine is locking something in for you to go further.
Keep in mind, Mars the planet of action goes Direct 27th, this will help with forward progress, get it going again.
