New Moon in Taurus

April 26 2017 is a new Moon in Taurus. The Moon is exalted in Earth sign Taurus. Taurus is ruled by Venus, the planet named for the goddess of love, art, and beauty. Time to cultivate and create love and beauty this month! Find romance, or let romance find you. Taurus enjoys the finer things in life, so enjoy the bounty of springtime.

This lunar month is also an opportune time to bring down to Earth plans, goals, and to complete projects. Clear the way, or as much as you can clear, for the next new Moon that begins Fire Horse month.

The Taurean new Moon creates a harmonious sextile with Neptune in Pisces; sensitivity to surroundings is increased, people are more imaginative, and more intuitive to follow hunches. There’s a general sense of empathy to the moods of others, that leads to emotional understanding.

Mercury, still retrograde, conjuncts Uranus in Aries, bringing an element of genius to problem solving. People are open to new ideas and experiences, and communication is more interesting and exciting, But the mind can race, or get ahead of yourself. Fortunately, Mercury and Uranus trine Saturn for constructive change, letting go of old perceptions, and adds to the stability of the new Moon and Sun in solid Taurus.

Snake Month

This new Moon begins the month of the Wood Snake. Those born in Snake year or Snake day love art, culture, and all things beautiful.

Snake month is naturally fortunate in this Phoenix (Rooster) year because Snake, Phoenix, and Ox make a relationship compatibility trine. This months brings opportunities to smooth over old relationship difficulties, and shed skins of the past, especially after Mercury goes direct on May 3. This new Moon in sensual Taurus builds to a passionate full Moon in Scorpio on May 10.

Luck is strongest this month for those born in the year of the Snake, Phoenix, Ox, and Monkey and Earth signs Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn.

2017 MERCURY RETROGRADE TOMORROW!

April 8, 2017 § 2 Comments

April 9 – May 3 2017 communication planet Mercury is retrograde for three weeks.

Traditionally in astrology, Mercury retrograde is a time of miscommunication, technology problems, and items lost or misplaced. But Mercury retrograde during this Fire Phoenix (Rooster) year 2017 can be an excellent time to focus on detailed tasks and catch up on financial matters.

April 9 – 20 Mercury retrograde in Earth sign Taurus. Good to follow up, get grounded, and complete tasks. You can be thorough and take your time. Venus rules Taurus who loves art, beauty, and enjoying the finer things of life.

April 20 – May 3 Mercury retrograde in Fire sign Aries for strong communication and taking immediate action. Fire brings energy to complete projects, but impulsive or snap decisions can be corrected at a later time.

We feel the Mercury retrograde influence until the new Moon on May 26 that begins a new lunar cycle.

2017 Libra Full Moon is Peak of Dragon Month

April 10 2017 is a full Moon in Libra. Air sign Libra rules the 7th house of relationships, partners, and marriage. Time to focus on balance in your close relationships as the lunar cycle wanes. This full Moon marks the peak of Dragon month in this Phoenix (Rooster) year. Dragon and Phoenix are a symbol of marriage and relationship harmony.

This full Moon conjuncts Jupiter bringing kind feelings and generosity towards others. There can be understanding and empathy on a deep intuitive level, with clear and honest expression, that’s very helpful during Mercury retrograde from April 9 until May 3.

The full Moon, Sun, Jupiter, and Uranus square Pluto. There could be fights or ego conflicts for power, especially now during the peak of Dragon month because Dragon is strong, mighty, and will not be told what to do. Or there could be clashes with those in authority, and ambition could be blocked by others.

Fortunately, the Sun, Mercury, and Uranus trine Saturn bringing stability and creative balance of old and new. Disciplined or serious work can be rewarding, and methodical steps lead to significant progress and professional advancement. Luck is strongest for Air signs Libra, Aquarius, and Gemini and those born in Dragon, Tiger, and Horse years. Contact me for your tarot, astrology, or feng shui consultation.

Happy full Moon,

Susan
