Since the Spring Equinox and the Total Solar Eclipse on March 20, we have been under strong Arian energy. This New Moon also takes place in Aries, yet, in a point very close to Taurus. The Sun enters this sign on the 21, which already holds Mars and Mercury, leaving behind only Uranus in Aries. Therefore, this New Moon opens a lunar cycle marked by the transition from the fiery energy of Aries, passionate and action oriented, to the earthy energy of Taurus, more contemplative and internalized. On one hand, we lose momentum and impulsiveness, but we gain practicality and caution.
Taurus likes all that feeds and comforts both body and soul, through nature, food, art, home, family, etc. Whereas in Aries, relationships are passionate and have a strong sexual component, in Taurus we are more inclined to get emotionally involved and value people who makes us feel well and at ease. Venus, Taurus’ ruler, in Gemini is another factor that indicates a focus on relationships, forming a sextile with Juno and Jupiter, an opposition to Saturn retrograde and a square with Neptune, which is in conjunction with Vesta. Venus is very highlighted in terms of aspects, also making a bi-quintile with Pluto, which has just turned retrograde, and a semi-sextile with Mercury. Themes such as communication, expansion, opportunities, soul mates, marriage, destiny, connections from the past, karma, art, beauty, spirituality, music, and home, are all linked to relationships.
Still, we notice that Venus is very close to Aldebaran, the Bull’s eye, one of the Royal Persian Stars, that is related to Archangel Michael. He comes to reveal the Truth, and by doing so, place everything and everyone right where they belong, allowing for Divine Justice and Reparation (ideals pointed by the North Node in Libra, sign also ruled by Venus). Archangel Michael’s light will be upon love and family relationships, providing for an amazing clearing and rearrangement of ties. This time around, we might as well hit the Bull’s eye.
