Taurus Disseminating Moon
★Oracular Overview—everything around you and within you is a potential…
Today’s moon—dare I say—‘so simply’ applies, connects, and separates a conjunction to Uranus through the tenth degree of Taurus.
Remember that Uranus has only just stationed retrograde through this same degree—which has proved to influence much upheaval around the world in varying ways… there will likely be nothing simple about today’s lunarly motions.
It was only upon August 10th that the moon connected to Uranus last, through this same degree, as Uranus only began to slow in its station that day… this tenth degree of Taurus, among many things, associates itself to “unconditional and compassionate understanding”¹ as much as it is to “volunteer work, first aid kits, and having a mission to fulfill.”¹
Author David Whyte² describes the word ‘unconditional’ as follows:
–the hope for unconditional love is the hope for a different life than the one we have been given… love is the conversation between possible, searing disappointment and a profoundly imagined sense of arrival and fulfillment; how we shape that conversation is the touchstone of our ability to love in the real inhabited world…
–our roads and journeys are always lived through beautiful humiliations, through disappointments, and through forms of imprisonment: of our own or another’s strange behavior or simply subject to the seasonality of the world; the arriving weather of existence always blowing through once stable lives and many times, blowing us apart… unconditional love is the beautiful hoped for impossibility, and yet we could not fully understand the nature of our helplessness without looking through the lens of that hoped-for perfection…
–the invitation is made to us every day whether we desire it or no, to enter a deeply human world of robust vulnerability, shot through with a sometimes joyful, more often difficult helplessness, to risk ourselves in the conditional world in which we live and to accept that there is no possible path we can follow where we will be untouched by the heartbeat, the difficulties and the joys that move us and move through us…
If the poetic prose of this word by Whyte resonates with you—does this inspire you to see it more clearly being practiced in your day-to-day?
This Not Yet that we’re all moving toward, here in this Now, will demand of you to be unburdened by conditioning… Not Yet demands to be envisioned unconditionally, as Not Yet is ‘a deeply human world of robust vulnerability, shot through with a sometimes joyful, more often difficult helplessness… to risk ourselves… to accept that there is no possible path we can follow where we will be untouched by the heartbeat, the difficulties and the joys that move us and move through us…’
Today is a day that may inspire the actual doing of practical changes needing to be initiated.
Also, Venus moves into Leo, (re)emphasizing recent themes of open-heartedness and authentic vulnerability… and the more natural inclination to seek joy, to allow ourselves simple pleasures, and to take the time to enjoy some good, clean fun.
Finally, Mars begins slowing, slowing, sloooooowing down, stationing, in preparation to station retrograde on September 10th at 28° Aries.
Until then, as Mars moves at a snail’s pace through this degree, initiating anything new, voluntarily, is not ideal, other than practical changes needing to be made otherwise, which arguably began nagging at you weeks ago. I refer here, rather, more along the lines of out-of-nowhere new ideas, and the like.
Remember that the twenty-eighth degree of Aries associates itself with “the necessity for mature preparation and self-criticism…” and that “great hopes, excited expectations cannot be sustained…”³ only emphasizing again that new and out-of-nowhere ideas and ideals will likely not be sustainable—what you have been navigating since March or June is what you will continue managing and navigating through the rest of the year.
As Rudhyar states, upon this particular degree, “the issue is how to handle this situation… in one form or another, it is an often recurring situation… the manner in which it is met determines [your] future possibilities of development and achievement… what is implied here is the need to be more than “obsessed by potentiality” and subjectively involved in the use of the new powers—the objective results have to be considered, i.e. what this use will do.”³
❝We sacrifice our potential because we do not know that we are pure potential.❞
★These current energies we’re all navigating will continue to circulate and circumvent throughout the rest of the year, into next—for better or worse—how can you best plan and prepare?—and in what ways can you strategize your personal ideals? Let’s talk about it—message me directly to book your reading—I look forward to being an asset on your journey.
