Taurus New Moon [Astro Weather]

Astro Weather Snapshot

Taurus New Moon 2021 carries much potential for healing, but its curious basket of energies will keep us guessing. Step behind the curtain for guidance on flowing with it and minimizing frustration.

  • roundel-taurusPracticality is the watchword this month. Do yourself and your colleagues a favor by pursuing things that have a strong pragmatic side to them. This is not the month for big visions; it’s a great month for building simple practical things that benefit your family and community.
  • If you like to play, flirt, and socialize, you’ll have a lot of fun this month. People are especially curious, changeable, flirtatious, and playful. This is a great month to dive into learning and exchanging information about things. One thing is sure; you won’t be bored!
  • Watch out for a weird disconnect between how people think and talk on one hand and how they actually act on the other. If you like to live according to reason, you may be surprised by people acting “irrationally,” emotionally, that is. The movement of action is indirect. As long as you plan for this, you can flow with it beautifully.
  • Romance is playful, fickle, and charming, and business relationships tend to involve more communication than usual. People will socialize more than usual; this is just how they roll this month.
  • This month shows significant social issues will need to be dealt with; a strong turn toward the collective is indicated. There is a strong pull toward local community, local business and possibly redistribution of wealth or material things.

Calling all analytical neat freaks!

newmoon-virgoDo you like or hate details and analyzing them?

The key to flowing with the Virgo vibe will be realizing that Virgo’s energy serves a higher purpose: the sign has been burned in the past (in Leo) by being overconfident, and its character is reacting to that by learning through getting the details, dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s.

Gemini New Moon [Astro Weather]

Double double your fun!

newmoon_gemini[Updated] This Gemini New Moon is conjunct its Ascendant, so this month will be ultra, ultra Gemini. To accentuate the Gemini expression still further, Gemini’s ruler, Mercury, is nearby in Gemini, too.

Be prepared for people to be very changeable, curious, and sociable, but good luck on trying to pin them down on anything! Gemini energy is very mental, communicative, and flighty. Thinking for thinking’s sake.

This is a great month to be social, to make new friends, and to explore new ideas with people, but if you are trying to push for commitments in business or romance, good luck. The Sun/Moon square to Neptune infuses this month an element of imagination, illusion, and idealism, and its biquintiles to Saturn and Pluto impart an interest in transforming social structures of all kinds.
