Sun enters Taurus
The Sun enters Taurus at 2:27 PM PDT on Wednesday. The same day brings an Inferior Sun/Mercury conjunction at 10:54 PM. Taurus is the second sign of the Zodiac. It belongs to the fixed axis and the triplicity of earth. When the Sun enters Taurus, thoughts turn to the world of growing things and gaining possessions. Material security is of utmost importance to Taurus. Both the element of earth and the fixed axis give Taurus its reputation for stubbornness. Taurus likes to make plans ahead of time. In the cycle of the year when the Sun enters Taurus it represents the creation of form. The second house of values and material resources corresponds with Taurus. As Aries is analogous with new life, Taurus is the patient building up of form required to bring the new life to fruition. Take the seeds you planted at the Aries New Moon and nurture them into life with the staying power of the Sun enters Taurus.
The rest of the Sky
Lots more is going on in the heavens this week. Here are the highlights. Venus and Mars the yin and the yang of sexuality form a sextile this evening (at 6:26 PM), adding a zing to Easter celebrations. Venus just turned direct yesterday. Monday brings a staid, but useful Sun/Saturn trine at 5:43 AM promising a productive and disciplined week. Remember to turn inward and backward with the Mercury Retrograde energy. I always injure myself under Mercury Retrograde. I slipped off a rock and fell in a stream on my hike yesterday bashing up both of my knees and I forgot my sunscreen so I have a very red neck today. Take care out there everyone. Thursday will be a bit heavy as Pluto stations Retrograde and Mercury backpedals into Aries making watch your tongue take on more urgency with all of the possible miscommunications that always abound under Mercury Retrograde. Now that Venus has gone direct, she squares Saturn yet again, (the last time was on April 8th), on Friday at 4:09 AM.
