– Corollary to Full Moon at 1° of Taurus
October 24th, 2018 ~ 12:47 pm EST / October 24th, 2018 ~ 16:47 pm UST
This lunation focuses on 2nd house matters in the earth sign of Taurus, where the sun and moon conjunct at 24° bringing focus and activity on matters of wealth and resources and finance.
Venus rules Taurus and will be traveling through talkative Gemini at 25° making contracts and communications both pleasing and fortunate. In mutual reception, Mercury will also be in Taurus at 3° meaning that Venus and Mercury respectively are occupying each other’s home sign. This should be a very beneficial aspect for drawing wealth, exploring beauty, a wonderful aspect for artists, creatives, and musicians in particular.
Mercury will also conjunct Uranus at 29° Aries, bringing unexpected information or messages into our lives, especially where siblings are concerned, or we might be unexpectedly detoured on a short trip. Go with the spontaneous energy of discovery.
Mars, planet of action and our fighting spirit at 29° Capricorn, squares Mercury 3° Taurus and Uranus at 29° Aries. Mars gives extra energy to all his endeavors and sometimes can be too domineering in his desire to express himself – be diplomatic and enjoy sports, physical activities to offset the tension of these squares, but expect stubbornness to be an issue in potential arguments with Mercury in Taurus.
Neptune at 16° Pisces still trines Jupiter at 17° of Scorpio, a time where we might find ourselves prone to drinking, spending time alone, studying the occult or exploring our serious, spiritual side, recharging or looking to divert ourselves into an escapist hobby.
Neptune at 16° Pisces is making his influence felt through a series of semi-squares, indicating struggle as we try to achieve goals or get through daily life.
Neptune semi-square Mars at 29° Capricorn, and also semi-squares Mercury at 3° Taurus. This could indicate difficulties in the career arena with work prospects (Mars in Capricorn) or perhaps a payment cannot be completed until an obstacle is removed. Hold your breath and preservere, semi-squares take time to resolve in a way squares often do not.
Pluto at 21° Capricorn also forms aspects to the luminaries trining the sun and moon at 24° Taurus, this is an earthy trine, encouraging grounded activities, bringing rationality and pragmatism to any ventures begun now.
~5TH MANSION OF THE MOON: AL HAK’AH~
A white spot. Helps the return from a journey, the instruction of scholars, building and gives health and good will. With moon here, begin war but do not sow or undertake any good.
