Taurus Gibbous Moon—November 7
Venus governs today’s moon, and both Venus and Mercury will be invisible in the sky nearly all month, as these personal planets trail the sun through the sector of the sky reserved for the Underworlds of Scorpio…
When Mercury and Venus are visually swallowed by the sun’s light, our thoughts and desires—as well as our exchanges and embraces—likewise, become somewhat shadowy, vague, or obscured, mysteriously tiptoed through… and we begin to turn inward, to ourselves, particularly through Scorpio—keeping these somewhat reserved, and protected, or even a bit guarded… which is not to say that our thoughts turn necessarily dark, with the season and the territory—though this is possible—though our thoughts become deeper…
And these depths prefer a more silenced observation until better understood.
And as for Venus… our desires, within these darker depths, feel a bit more safe, as well, if left to be more intimately and unapologetically explored while the lights are out for now—while non-disclosure agreements have been signed.
We’ve a couple more weeks to more thoroughly explore our darker desires within the privacy of our own thoughts and projections, expressions and movements… as we’re still within quite the dramatic transitions occurring within an overall, deeper, much more fecund transformation—there is much to still be navigated.
We’re naturally moving a bit slowly…
Today’s moon builds all day—busy building into tomorrow’s total lunar eclipse—as the intensely teeming t-square between the Scorpio stellium opposes Uranus and the NN in Taurus while these oppositions square Saturn in Aquarius… and today’s moon illuminates this teetering intensity, seemingly illuminating these intensities by the hour… ever so slowly, we’re left to feel each and every increase of pressure.
We are learning a new level of patience, willingly or not.
We are learning our new limitations, and exploring these as they offer both bulging new benefits and hindering burden.
We are learning, ultimately, that these new lessons should be taken on with painful seriousness…
And that precious place within—that place within where the higher mind overlaps the heart-center… this is likely the only place through which you’re experiencing a balanced lightness—a calm within the chaos.
This is no coincidence.
