Category Archives: Uranus Shifts into Taurus

Receiving August’s Gifts ~ continued

Uranus moved into its retrograde (Rx) position this morning, at 10:49 am MST, bringing the total number of Rx planets to a record number of seven, further inviting slow, deep, centering breaths and presence of mind, body, heart, and soul. 

*Uranus slows down in the early degrees of Taurus, where all things beautiful live. This planet encourages us to expand our Saturnian boundaries and stretch ourselves.

In Taurus, its focus falls to what really nourishes us ~ deep in our hearts ~ where our core values quiver for our attention. 

What really matters?

Where can we stretch our wings to break through limits and reach for what nourishes our souls?

What joy awaits us in this new place?

Here’s to drinking in the gifts we find and letting the love we receive reverberate to all ~

*Uranus will remain retrograde until early January 2019, dipping back into Aries in early November 2018. It will continue to ignite change in Aries until early March 2019, when it revisits Taurus, taking us back to our hearts.

With sweet summer blessings ~

Planting what you love ~ Blessings from the New Moon – and Uranus – in Taurus

Greetings from the place where earth meets sky ~

At 5:48 am MDT, on May 15th, the New Moon at 24 degrees Taurus trines Mars and Pluto in Capricorn and opposes Jupiter Rx in Scorpio. New moons bless us with divine openings to plant seeds and ideas, and to make plans. This one invites us to do so by working with
the energies of love (Taurus) and power (Scorpio) – in a way where compassion and unconditional love guide the process so that those involved and the collective are empowered, and higher wisdom prevails.

Uranus, the planet of sudden change, shifts into Venus-ruled Taurus and conjuncts Mercury. Together, they square Mars in Capricorn, and call us to pay attention to how we communicate our needs – especially when it comes to the urge to bring conclusion to something that we want to resolve – including the ages-old, ego-driven impulse to be right.

Coming out of fiery Mars-ruled Aries, Uranus’s sphere of influence shifts from our self-identity and self-expression to our value systems – to what we find worthwhile enough to possess – and, ultimately, whether or not we feel valued, appreciated, and loved. If there are areas where our return on our investment of energy falls short of what we truly want, we can look to Uranus to inspire change…ready or not!

Uranus’s energy is said to be beyond our control, and efforts to halt its impact can be futile at best and disastrous at worst. Fortunately, our ability to respond to changes that occur in our lives and our world, however they occur, is always within our control.

Here’s to sowing seeds that will grow our hearts’ truest dreams ~ the ones that truly matter ~ and doing it with intentional grace. 

New Moon Blessings,

Christina
