Moon in Taurus
2/27/20 11:29 PM
Natural Chart / Whole Houses
Note: Last year, I didn't really cover the transits of the moon other than it's relationship to other planets and positions in the form of aspects. This year, I will be covering the Moon's journey through the zodiac at the rate of one sign per month in the natural order.
Moon in Taurus (General)
The Moon makes a full circuit through the zodiac once every 28 1/2 days spending about 2.5 days in each sign. It's mantra is I FEEL and some keywords associated with it include, but are not limited to, childhood, cycles, emotions, feelings, habits, home, change, instincts, mother, passive, subconscious. nurturing, and imagination. The Moon rules Cancer, is Exalted in Taurus, in fall in Scorpio, and Detriment in Capricorn (see essential dignity).
When the moon is in Taurus people are more patient, consistent, predictable, steady, materialistic, passive, dependable, comfortable, sensual, and laid back. They will not easily stray outside their comfort zones, but rather will stick to their usual patterns of thought and behavior. They may feel more materialistic and driven to have more money, which increases their self-esteem and sense of security. There may also be a danger of people overindulging in food or drink. Finally they may feel more romantic and sensual.
The natal house that Taurus is in in your birth chart is the area of life where you will feel more patient, determined, and steady.
- If your rising sign is Aries, Taurus is your 2nd House.
- If your rising sign is Taurus, Taurus is your 1st House.
- If your rising sign is Gemini, Taurus is your 12th House.
- If your rising sign is Cancer, Taurus is your 11th House.
- If your rising sign is Leo, Taurus is your 10th House.
- If your rising sign is Virgo, Taurus is your 9th House.
- If your rising sign is Libra, Taurus is your 8th House.
- If your rising sign is Scorpio, Taurus is your 7th House.
- If your rising sign is Sagittarius, Taurus is your 6th House.
- If your rising sign is Capricorn, Taurus is your 5th House.
- If your rising sign is Aquarius, Taurus is your 4th House.
- If your rising sign is Pisces, Taurus is your 3rd House.
The Moon + Taurus + 7th Houses
I feel + I have + Relationships
With the Moon in Taurus and the 7th House you may feel more patience and determined to have more relationships of a platonic, business, or romantic nature. For this reason, you feel the need to be around more people, to be more social, and to engage with others. You're feeling more charming, attractive, and affectionate. You can be more expressive and open with those close to you. You feel better about negotiation and compromise in your relationships. This is a good time to confront and heal any issues present in your relationships.
Aspects, or relationships between planets, is another dimension of astrological interpretation that should be considered. In this case, we would look at any aspects formed between the Transit Moon and planets in one's birth chart. For example, the Moon at 0°Taurus is applying an opposition to my natal Venus at 2° Scorpio. An opposition is a type of aspect in which the energy or urge of planet is in contract with the energy or urge of another planet. In the case of an opposition (hard aspect) the two planets are pulling part. You may feel that someone or something is doing something for you and you have no power to control what is happening.
Let's break it down:
Transit Moon + Opposition + Natal Venus
I feel + divide + I love
When the transit Moon is in opposition to your natal Venus you can be too sensitive now which can lead to your feelings being easily hurt by someone else. You can possibly experience a disagreement with a friend or lover or have problems at home now. Having a good time may just not be possible for the few short hours this aspect is active, so it may be best not to socialize too much.
