What each sign finds most distressing:

 

 

(The following is not comprehensive — just some observations. And it is important to recognize that no one is a pure archetype. The Sun sign holds a central place in the personality but other important factors in the birth chart — especially the rising sign, the Moon sign, and strongly placed planets — combine to make us each unique and complex.) 

 

Aries ♈: to be held back from acting on an impulse, to be suppressed, to be prevented from expressing contentious and/or passionate energies, to be slowed down.

Taurus ♉: to be rushed, lack of financial or emotional security, to be deprived of touch, to be deprived of beautiful sights, smells, sounds, tastes, and textures.

Gemini ♊: boredom, lack of information, being “out of the loop” or cut off from communication, pressure to commit to one thing, having to stay still.

Cancer ♋: no one to nurture and protect, no one to be nurtured and protected by, thwarted from cultivating one’s “baby,” not having a safe and comfortable home. 

Leo ♌: no loving audience, not being seen, not being appreciated, not being adored, not enough attention, cold-heartedness.

Virgo ♍: lack of attention to detail, skipped steps, orderless chaos, not adhering to thorough technique and “proper” procedure, lack of refinement, lack of purity. 

Libra ♎: having to go it alone with no one to bounce off of, having to make a quick decision without being able to weigh the pros and cons, that which is unjust or unfair, insensitivity, lack of empathy, inconsideration, ugliness.

Scorpio ♏: superficiality, inauthenticity, feeling powerless, revealing vulnerability, failing to do one’s deep inner work, lack of emotional intimacy, lack of meaningful bonding.

Sagittarius ♐: the everyday routine with nothing exotic mixed in, lack of freedom, lack of access to philosophical perspectives, lack of ethics, narrow-mindedness, a life with no adventure.

Capricorn ♑: that which is unrealistic, inefficient, wasteful, impractical, or theoretical only; losing status, losing authority, lack of mastery, lack of having a respectful place in the world.

Aquarius ♒: conformity, exclusive hierarchical systems, social inequity, being confronted with ignorance, self-centeredness, or drama queens/kings.

Pisces ♓: the mundane details of life, no way to escape ordinary reality, lack of inspiration, lack of vision, lack of art, lack of feeling connected with the divine.

In honor of the Moon conjunct Jupiter in Taurus tonight...

 

Debra Silverman acts out all the archetypes of the zodiac. Here is Taurus in honor of tonight’s Moon in this fixed earth sign. Also, the Moon is conjunct Jupiter in Taurus tonight (it’s an absolutely beautiful sky with the Moon, Jupiter, and Venus visible).  With these dramatized signs of the zodiac, it’s important to remember that no one is a pure archetype. The Sun sign is a vital part of who we are, but we are complex and may also relate to our Moon sign, rising sign, or the archetypes associated with planets that are tightly conjunct our Sun, Moon, or Ascendant, for example.

Full Moon in Taurus ♉, Neptune and Chiron turn direct

 

 

The Full Moon is the climax of the lunar month and a time to observe with objectivity what is coming to light or to a head. At every Full Moon there is an opposition between the Sun and the Moon, and this polarization and tension of the opposites may be felt within oneself or within one’s relationships and circumstances. When the Full Moon is in Taurus, the Sun is in Scorpio: on the one hand, there is a need to let go of the past in order to allow the necessary transformation of the self (Sun in Scorpio) — but on the other hand, there is a valid emotional longing for stability and security (Moon in Taurus), for instance…Read more...

Jupiter retrograde (Aug 30-Dec 25)

 

 

On August 30th, Jupiter ♃ - the planet of increase, optimism, and the search for truth - stopped, turned around, and began traveling in reverse. Jupiter will be retrograde for almost 4 months, taking the journey and the search backwards (for review and synthesis) and inwards (seeking inner truth). Jupiter will travel from 10 degrees back to 0 degrees Taurus ♉. Where you have these degrees of Taurus in your chart (and other planets in early degrees which may be aspected) gives a clue about the area of life where you will have an opportunity to reassess recent expansion... The energy of Jupiter retrograde in Taurus can help us to refine and stabilize what was developing, appreciate the gains that were made, and ground them in practical, usable ways. One way to make the aspirations (Jupiter) sustainable over time (a Taurus concern) is by finding our way, Taurus style, meaning less effort and more enjoyment, less doing and more being.

This weekend’s Taurus Moon

 

 

“What is the source of true satisfaction in life? Take attention away from thinking and sense the ‘beingness’ underneath it.” (Eckhart Tolle). This quote is in honor of the current Taurus ♉ Moon, as it captures an essential facet of Taurus wisdom and tranquility.

Jupiter ♃ enters Taurus ♉...

 

 

Jupiter ♃ enters Taurus ♉ to stay for 1 year. The projects and ideas, which were born during Jupiter’s year in Aries, have the opportunity to be stabilized and grounded now. Taurus persists and brings into manifestation the inspired beginnings of Aries. Also, hopefully this will be good for our economy, since Taurus rules resources and Jupiter expands everything it touches.

Venus ♀ and Mars ♂ unite today...

 

 

Venus ♀ and Mars ♂ unite at 10º Taurus ♉ today. Venus is the epitome of harmony and beauty. She is passive, receptive, but gets what she wants through the power of attraction, whereas Mars actively initiates and will fight for and conquer whatever he desires. They are opposites, but have an irresistible need for one another, because together they achieve balance...

Venus is in her home sign in Taurus so she may have the upper hand right now — to coax Mars into submission to her wishes for peace and affection...

Wherever 10º Taurus ♉ is in your chart is where you will experience these two archetypes during this influence, which could last a few days on either side of 5/23.

At the same time, I’m still feeling the feisty energy in the realm of communication from the Mercury Mars conjunction of a couple days ago... Especially yesterday and today while the Moon is in Aquarius ♒ inspiring us to be true to ourselves, even if that means not pleasing others.

Today the Sun enters airy, curious, and quick-witted Gemini ♊

 

 

Today the Sun moved from steady, deliberate, and earth-centered Taurus ♉ into airy, curious, and quick-witted Gemini ♊. People with strong Gemini playing through them seem to be able to relate to everything and everyone. So, talking and sharing with them is lively and interesting, and oftentimes a feeling of connection arises with ease.

Mercury ☿ the Messenger, and Mars ♂ the Warrior, merge energies in Taurus ♉...

 

 

Mercury ☿ the Messenger, and Mars ♂ the Warrior, merge energies (at 7º Taurus ♉). Communication and transportation could be furiously determined. Razor blade mouths and road rage -OR- the willingness to integrate and communicate a new positive impulse in alignment with your true values... This influence may be felt for a day or two on either side of 5/20.

Enter the peace of Taurus ♉

 

 

4 planets have moved from fiery fast acting Aries ♈ to calm slow but steady Taurus ♉. How to align with all this Taurus energy in the ether? By tuning into the now experience of the body, the mind begins to quiet, and we take notice more profoundly the warmth of the sun, taste of the food, magical sound of the voice... By giving ourselves the time to fully know the world through our senses, we enter the peace of Taurus.
