Astro Vibrational Tapestry Report

The moon ingresses from her long slumber of a void-of-course phase into the sign of Libra this morning at 7:24 AM. Lovely Libra and the moon are comfortable with each other. This should help that semi-disconnected feeling of the past few days lighten. The energies this week, thus far have been deep. Libra moon comes along and lightens the load a bit. Allowing us to once again feel connected with others. Today is a pretty Venusian day with Venus ruling over Libra and Taurus, and the moon ingresses into Libra while the sun ingresses into Taurus.
A couple hours later that is exactly what happens too! The sun moves from the last degrees of hot Aries into the calmer, cooler, more collected energy of Taurus, this happens exactly at 11:29 AM. Sun in Taurus has our minds shift. We shift from the alert and energetic vibe of Aries into the grounded, focused and determined vibe of Taurus. Taurus is a fixed earth sign, this makes Taurus energy very sturdy. I always think of oak trees when my mind wanders to Taurus. The stable oak that is not getting pushed around. The determined branches that will seek the light and grow into all interesting directions to get to the light. And why does Taurus do this? Because it is determined, just like the oak tree, it is determined to reach the light. The mighty oak that everyone likes, as Taurus is a very likable energy. Being Venus ruled, there is a natural beauty that comes from the Taurus energy.
During this time with the sun in Taurus, you can think of all the things that you are fixed on yourself and strengthen your curvy branches so you can reach the light too. The Taurus sun gives us the determination to do this. This is also the spring in the northern hemisphere. Time to watch all the beauty pop up from mother earth, something that the Taurus energy connects us to. If you think of Aries as the beginning of life, and the thriving that Aries does for us, Taurus brings that energy into our hearts and grounds it into the earth.
In the afternoon Venus in Aries comes to a square with Pluto in Capricorn at 4:51 PM. This brings about compulsive energy towards the things that we love. It is interesting how the moon and then sun come to the limelight in the signs that Venus rules. Venus is really in the spotlight here today, so make sure the things that you get compulsive about today are healthy. Take your intensity this evening and do something creative with yourself, you might be surprised to see what comes out!
Rhodochrosite is the gemstone suggested for today, I can't think of a better one with all this Venusian energy going on. It is a heart opening stone that brings about a feeling of peace.
Lavender & Lemon are the essential oils for today. Lavender will help to connect us with Spirit and Lemon will invigorate us to keep us motivated.
All times are in Eastern US Time.
Namaste & until tomorrow!
