"We are born at a given moment, in a given place, and like vintage years of wine, we have the qualities of the year and the season of which we are born. Astrology does not lay claim to anything more." - Carl Gustav Jung

Out of the Fog and Into the Moonlight

   I was born on my Neptune line so it's safe to say I am used to operating in the fog... not that I accomplish all I set out to do, but I get through it. Why am I telling you this? Because today, that giant blue marble spinning on the edge of our solar system stopped in its tracks to turn from retrograde to direct motion once more. We can have our eyes opened to what is all around us now that Neptune is moving forward again. What did you learn from your recent visions, dreams or musings that can help you find your way now?

  I hope you jotted down any information you may have gleaned, because some of the most potent insight may be very elusive. We are dealing with the nebulousness of Neptune after all, and Neptune deals with the subconscious realms of spirit, not earthly or mundane matters. You can set your intention to receive information from the ethers or your own subconscious before you go to sleep tonight and tomorrow night. A meditation is in order as well, either alone or with like-minded people, to focus on what both your subconscious mind and the Full Moon can bring to light.

  Taurus highlights values, self-worth, money and what we treasure, as well as the earth and her gifts. Remember the New Moon was in Scorpio two weeks ago, and that was about the give and take of our values, our money and who or what we're willing to partner with. Today's Full Moon will show you just what it is you need or won't let go of that defines what you value about yourself, what you learned in the past couple of weeks from those you have engaged with and what your personal exchange rate is. In other words, you're learning what exactly it is that you're willing to exchange, negotiate, trade or give up for what you want. A few words of caution here, be prudent and don't throw caution to the wind. It is timely to hang on to your self-worth as well as your wallet!
   The Sabian Symbol for nineteen degrees of Taurus is A New Continent Rising Out of the Ocean. Now there's a Taurean image - earth arising, something solid and stable and something new to be discovered. The spontaneity of a fresh start suddenly appearing on the horizon brings up images of opportunities. If you are ready for a productive new beginning, then you have probably let go of anything holding you back from the promise of a fresh horizon! The rewards of persevering  come with allowing things to evolve over time... an island doesn't just pop up ready to be inhabited in one day. Working toward your desired outcome and putting in the effort and time is what's important now.

  Another planetary change is that the action Mars is leaving Leo and moving into the zodiac sign of Virgo later tonight. Having the energy and drive to take care of your health and nutrition, do detailed paperwork or clean up your environment is what will serve you best well into January of next year. Watch out for the Mars' tendency to jump, explode or aggressively pursue details that may make others around you crazy. You can actually accomplish a lot by focusing your efforts and taking care to put things where they belong, whether in the pantry, the filing cabinet or in your mind. When you feel the urge to nit-pick, don't - go for a walk instead!

  With Venus, (love and money...) and Mercury, (communication) so close together in Sagittarius, it's a great time to pursue the higher goals in life, including education or travel to a foreign country to learn about other customs, laws, etc. and you don't actually have to leave home to do it. Don't forget that enjoyment comes from taking the time to share your adventures, philosophy and/or inspirations with those around you. Slide shows, study groups or social gatherings can bring glimpses of the future to brighten the colder and darker weeks ahead.

  Remember to keep your head in the stars and your feet on the ground~

  1. We had 2 (of 3 total) prominent trees removed from the front of our house today. I was so apprehensive about cutting them down loosing the shade, etc and put this off for a long time, necessary as it was. But OH MY! What a difference to the appearance of our house!! I can't get over how wonderful it looks! Of course, now we will begin to plant new trees, change the ground-cover, etc. Tear down, build up--and SO much better!
