Taurus Crescent Moon 
—February 7

Apologies, dear readers, we’ve been traveling and the wi-fi has been hit and miss…

Today’s Venusian-ruled moon wants nothing more than to embrace, meditate upon, and thoroughly and wholeheartedly practice patience, to breathe in and out slowly, and mindfully, and to contemplate all things lovely upon each of your fingers and toes…

That might not be how it ends up unraveling, however.

The slow and mindfully determined Taurean moon connects to Uranus in conjunction—and this is a detail—for the first time since Uranus stationed direct…

Since Uranus stationed direct in January from its retrogradation it has been building much momentum in regard to anything that flows against the grain… which would suggest that a bit of upheaving and provoking, or upsetting, would more appropriately describe the energies underneath today’s unraveling, rather than mindful breathing and patient contemplation.

The degree through which this conjunction occurs associates itself with the adage that ‘as the roots, so the flowers’, as above—so below, and this would lend itself the reasonability toward that which erupts in upset was likely upset previously, underneath it all or inherently… that which is upheaved needed necessary foundational renovations.

Yet, whatever manages any upset or upheaval will nearly immediately be confronted with demands for accountability as the moon then squares Saturn… the degree through which this occurs, however, regards the ‘inescapable Now’, referring to that which “is the energy that arises out of the present moment…” and this energy astrologer Dane Rudhyar speaks of is very much the kind of energy emerging today—the kind of energy you must struggle with, and against.

Ultimately, there is “a struggle between practical needs and the underlying reasons for having those needs…”

Let’s also be aware that Mercury is inching in on its third and final conjunction with Pluto, exact February 11th, while Mars is very quickly inching in on Venus, which will continue through the entire month… at some point, it may become obvious to you that something isn’t exactly or entirely as it was assumed, presumed, advertised, or thought to be.

For the benefit of the flowers, we water the thorns too.
