This Moment in Astrology
At this very moment of astrology, here in Troy New York as I visit my elderly parents, the astrology (as usual) matches the events, sensations, and moods in experience as well as in symbol. Although this is a statement on the astrology of this very moment, this post itself can be read and understood universally and at any time by simply listening to the description I give of the mood of this household in correspondence to the symbols of the displayed chart.
I clicked a few links on my computer through the astrology software that I have (Timepassages pro for those of you interested) and saw immediately what the statement was: Venus in Taurus applying to the Descendant. A feeling (Venus) of weight and grounding (Taurus). This is a very strong expression of Venus as she is at home in Taurus, here expressing personal need structures. Applying to the Descendant reflects a projection of personal need structures onto the surrounding environment or receptiveness to others needs.
One thing that was striking about this aspect and its reflection in experience was giving my son a bath in the backyard and letting him run naked in the grass for a spell (he’s 2 and some change). He couldn’t have been happier (another Venus expression as the interpretation of emotions) and more content bathing in the sun and grounded by the earth in only his purest human form. My mother, sister (who held my daughter), and wife watched lazily on lawn chairs (Taurus), no one too motivated or moved to do much else. My father sat contentedly in the living room watching the Red Sox.
