October 3: Consolidating Our Power
The moon enters Taurus at 8:12 a.m., and moon void of course ends
The weekend begins with a lunar shift from heated Aries to grounded Taurus. The moon void of course also ends, opening up the weekend to fresh starts and new progress. The past two days have been lively and cathartic but may also have been challenging and frustrating. The moon’s return to luxurious Taurus is a time to rest, digest, and repair, as we begin to power down with the waning moon. The moon is exalted in Taurus, meaning lunar energies are exceptionally nourishing, fruitful, and even magical in the Bull’s sign. We have an opportunity to consolidate our power and trust our senses to guide us.
The moon is trine Venus at 10:13 a.m.
Late morning, we have an aspect of sweet relief, in the form of an earth trine between the Taurus moon and Venus in nature-loving Virgo. If we have become physically depleted, this earth trine re-balances our physical energies and stabilizes our emotions. This trine may also promote reconciliation and healing connections after an explosive end-of-week. When the moon is trine Venus, our inner feelings may flow in harmony with love matters, which can encourage touch and nurturing affection. This supportive trine aspect gives us permission to rest and indulge in sensory pleasures.
The moon is opposite Mercury at 10:17 p.m.
The day ends with the Taurus moon in opposition with Mercury in enigmatic Scorpio. Mercury in Scorpio has opened up a time of deep, penetrating conversations that get to the heart of the matter. This opposition brings our emotional expressions into focus, with lunar energies illuminating our inner reality. The moon/Mercury polarity may represent a turning point, when we can hold space for intimate, trusting, and much-needed discussions. We might also tune into this aspect tonight in quiet reflection as we consider our emotional needs and articulate them effectively and sincerely.
