My Sign Says

The Moon in Taurus Brings Peace and Balance

The earth signs are grounding us today. Not only does the moon move into Taurus but it also forms a trine with the sun in Virgo. These transits can help us find mental, emotional, and spiritual peace.

The Moon Moves into Taurus at 12:31 AM

In the wee hours of the morning, the moon moves into the earthy, grounded sign of Taurus. Generally, the moon in Taurus offers us a peaceful, easy feeling. We’re blessed with an extra dose of patience and are generally in the mood to delve into life’s earthly pleasures. Think a cozy morning sipping coffee on your porch, or an evening snuggled up with your favorite person to watch a movie.

We’re feeling romantic and sensual, and looking to up the hedonism a little. Pleasure-seeking is the name of the game.

Because Taurus is a fixed sign, you should be able to commit to a project fully over the next couple of days. It’ll be easy for you to get into the zone and focus on details, and you’ll take genuine pleasure in the progress you make through hard work.

Cooking, gardening, crafting, building, singing, and dancing could all be good activities during this time.

The Sun Is Trine the Moon at 9:27 AM

Later in the morning, the sun in Virgo forms a watery trine with the Moon in Taurus. This placement brings two energies into harmony. In this case, it’s the sun (who represents our will and overall vitality) and the moon (who represents our emotional lives).

In other words, this transit brings our conscious mind and our emotional awareness into harmony, allowing us to feel comfortable in our own skin. There’s an attitude of “what you see is what you get.” No pretense, no games.

This transit brings an overall sense of peace, happiness, and good fortune. It also might create a need or urge for spontaneity, and it’s a great day to get out and socialize with your friends and loved ones if you are able.

The Moon Is Square Saturn at 5:06 PM

This evening, the moon in Taurus forms a square aspect with Saturn in Aquarius. Squares between the moon and Saturn can cause serious bouts of moodiness and moments of depression, and you may find yourself dredging up past grief and other unresolved matters.

This transit might leave you with a slightly restless feeling. A bout of low self-esteem could keep you from openly sharing your emotions, and you might be feeling more isolated and distant from your loved ones than you have been lately.

Take some time to journal your feelings, and see if you can parse any lessons from these energies and the encounters they’ve prompted. Then, take some time to write down some things you’re grateful for to bolster your mood a bit.
