Taurus First Quarter Square

Now, look deep into your eyes … are you who you WANT to be? After the last year of shedding the past, confronting fears, and witnessing the world dissolve … have you found your inner bull? Well, ready or not, this square will manifest him/her into reality. All of Pluto’s transformative powers will be alive within both our conscious and unconscious mind as the sun squares the moon, while sextiling Uranus and trining Jupiter and the moon trines Pluto. With our consciousness tapped into the t-square, Mercury is having his final say and Saturn in Sagittarius is grounding us in solid perception, we step over the threshold of a new identity in relationships as Venus ends one revolution through the Zodiac and passes into Aries with the determination of a bull. All in preparation for the upcoming eclipse season, when fate is known to play it’s hand in tipping the scales and life has a way of turning corners into new spaces.

Leading up to the square that peaks on Friday February 3, 2017 at 8:18 pm Los Angeles, 4:18 am London, and 3:18 pm Sydney on February 4th, we remain in the ‘Struggle Phase’. A time where situations in your life confront you to the point of action/release. Where through conscious listening and deliberate actions, we have access to integrating our intentions into our reality. This commonly results in the experience of a struggle and creates the opportunity for healing, then for a day after the square, we move into the Action Phase … a time to move forward.

Keeping in mind the intentions squaring off are the ones created at the beginning of this lunar cycle on the Aquarius New Moon reconnecting you with your personal sovereignty, while standing for innovative solutions on a grand scale and those emoted on May 6, 2016 into the Taurus New Moon, when the sun and moon formed a Grand Earth Trine with Pluto and we imprinted our inner demand for survival and purpose upon the cosmos. For the day leading up to the square, we will continue to encounter instances of perceived breakdowns playing out in the areas of life depicted by the house those degrees occupy in your chart. Then the day after, we will be challenged to take discerning actions to break up the past and move towards our intentions.

For you see, once set in motion, there is an unofficial universal law that pulls toward and/or reveals to us that which impedes our intended future. It’s like a universal authority that’s saying ‘you want that … well, things have to shift’ and ultimately those ‘things’ are rooted in our beliefs. Our life experience is nothing more than a projection of our beliefs and when we transform our beliefs … what was once not working, becomes open to new possibilities.

The challenge exists in uncovering the beliefs and letting go of attachments to anything/one that breaks away during said ‘shift’. For it is when we hang on … that we suffer. Lucky for us, or maybe not so lucky, every lunar transit our beliefs manifest in our lives through the interplay between the sun (conscious) and moon (subconscious) energies. Right now the sun is in Aquarius (“I know”) and the moon is in Taurus (“I have”).

The sun is the source of creative energy, forming our conscious mind, and while in the fixed air sign of Aquarius we are energized, innovative, and social. Our independent expression has us breaking from tradition and aspiring to improve societal issues. Being visionary in nature, we inspire at the community level. Accomplishment is achieved in groups and projects benefiting the majority will be blessed.

The moon is the conduit to the subconscious and is activated by the sun’s energy to shape our perceptions from the beliefs stored in that space. Those beliefs have been planted there every new moon throughout our lives (all history) by our energetic state … what we were emoting. Both on an individual and collective level.

Collectively, the subconscious experience of Taurus energy has us seeking security and comfort. We are more related to the physical plane and find ourselves grounded through what we see, hear, smell, touch, and taste. We have access to patience and persevere.

Individually all of the energies you experience are focused through the imprint made at your birth by the presence of planets, their aspects, and the house placement within each sign … from both the sun (Aquarius) and the moon (Taurus). The resonance of that energy is determined by your beliefs, emoted with each new moon, whether they were created intentionally, or not … and the manifestations of those energies will occur in your life according to the houses the sun and moon are activating.

How did the Taurus Super Full Moon disrupt your world on November 14th, 2016? What were your dominant emotions? What beliefs are you encountering … right now? What in society do you believe you could contribute to … and make a difference? What houses do Aquarius and Taurus occupy in your chart?

These energetic influences are yours to RECREATE BY HOW YOU ARE BEING! Events over the next several days will reveal your beliefs through what is playing out in your life. Giving you an opportunity to be responsible for them, forgive yourself and others, and intentionally heal your consciousness through achieving a new balance between Aquarius and Taurus energies … between what you know to benefit the collective and what you have in the way of survival and/or creature comforts.

To receive the most out of this phase, keep your heart and mind open to the universe revealing the beliefs you have that stand between you and the fulfillment of your intentions. These are at the core of every ‘struggle’. Review your assets and find what within you will help you to thrive. Stay present to the commitment behind your intention and take swift action after the First Quarter Square peaks!
