Tomorrow, 4/19/14, just a few short hours after the Moon enters Capricorn, the Sun will ingress Taurus; this blend of the two lights will offer the potential of grounding the intense energy that has pulsed and continues to ignite our experiences.
So it seems right and appropriate that at a time like this our attention, our light, our radiance, will be focused through the earthiest of signs, Taurus.
Taurus provides strength, stability, and established structure that can be relied and counted on, as well as a strong sense of sensuality and sensation. Taurus provides the grounding in the physical, natural world that can provide peace and a sense of security during periods of tension.
Doing Taurus like things for the next month will offer space for that energy, focused at the center, to circulate; things like gardening, hiking, cooking a nice meal, enjoying food and wine, massages with lovers, yoga, and love-making are a few good ideas to get started. Just think anything that gets in touch with the earth and reminds you where you’re feet are planted.
Considering the potential for change in the astrology that is transpiring, this blend of the Sun and Moon carries much strength to build through efficient and practical use of one's given resources.
This combination of Taurus and Capricorn, two of the three earth signs, serves as a powerful reminder of where our two feet are, that is, planted firmly on Earth. The focal point of this Grand Cross, as always, is Earth, and honoring our presence here through whatever way you can find (conscious ceremony, personal ritual, walking/hiking, gardening…) would most likely facilitate access to the grounding potential.
There will also be available a very personal, emotional connection to this tightening Grand Cross as the Moon makes contact through a conjunction with Pluto. With Pluto there can be an experience of fighting a battle that can't be won. Pluto's glyph itself can be likened to someone holding their hands up in surrender. Perhaps one of the first experinces of this astrology can be a surrender to our experience and place on Earth: Earth Surrender.
