Opportunity is knocking at the collective’s door at this time of the month when our emotions become anew. When our New Moon embarks in the practical and patience energies of Taurus -the sign that consciously aims for security- we are now ready to really take on an enduring and resourceful spirit. Earth is Taurus’s elemental influence, so look to this passage to allow feelings to take root, and “fix” into a grounding force.
Taurus energy must beware of dogged, materialistic, lethargic, and obstinate behaviors that may arise. When any possessive energies are around, it is easy to gravitate to unimaginative and reactionary tendencies. While a strong sense of values and patience mark any Taurus passage, the cultivation of enterprise, adaptability, and vision are equally wise to adhere to.
Be sure to check the Taurus House, in particular the 23-degree Taurus spot, in your personal birth chart to see where a new energy is ideally meant to unfold. This is the area of life that requests an initiation in the next two weeks to follow. Seeds that you plant in this section of your Zodiac pie until the next Full Moon upon 27 May are bound to reap a rich harvest further down the road.
REmember, the recent Mercury Retrograde passage in Taurus is now engaged in the Shadow period through the 28 May. You’ll undoubtedly see plenty of re-workings unfold in this area of the life that may have seen their upsets over 18 April – 11 May. Once again, the Universe is right in time to smooth out any wrinkles Mercury may have caused.
For the collective horoscope, again we offer some simple advice for every sign from the outer vantage point. Remember, if you know your Rising Sign (Ascendant), read that passage too, for it typically will apply to your personal charts’ advice. Keep in mind, it is full mathematical analysis of the individual birth chart that truly indicates how the current planetary energies are uniquely affecting you.
