Last Quarter Moon in Aquarius 13, Conjunct Saturn 13
At this point, we are coming deeper into this Taurus Season, where we are being guided to ground into creating stability and finding peace within. Taurus teaches us to trust ourselves and to know what it takes to achieve such a virtuous feat—showing up for thyself with consistency, reliability, honesty, authenticity, and unwavering certainty that you will be there FOR yourself. Generally speaking, Taurus really love themselves!
They teach that we deserve pleasure and comfort and the finer things in life. They can’t have it any other way! They must surround themselves with as many things that feel good to them as they can get their hands on! Taurus teaches us the value of taking time with the self – for the good of the self.
To get still, return to silence, and find peace within is essential to everyone’s well-being. To nurture, support, and develop the self so to then be able to reap the benefits warranted is a crucial aspect of growth and being alive.
Rewards such as impeccable groundedness, admirable self-sufficiency, and earned talent and skill. They are the self-reliant giants of the zodiac. Self-contained by nature and holding within themselves an abundance of gifts. During Taurus season, we have so much to learn about the importance of cultivating personal values and following your heart’s desires.
Yet, even in times when it’s all about grounding, committing, and stabilizing, the “future” nonetheless still powerfully calls. The impulse to create and move forward, coupled with the need to let go of the past and liberate, is a force to be reckoned with these days.
Raising us, inspiring, even shocking some of us out of our comfort zones as still, we reach lazily for our safety nets. It takes work to grow, to step forward, and into the unknown. To embrace more of the self and take on more responsibility for living in the realized self. It can be painful to live out of alignment and purpose, yet it’s not easy to fully embrace the task of living life and doing what it takes to stay in alignment with a world so out of whack with itself.
The Last Quarter Moon phase offers a moment of contemplation, often through bumping up against an internal conflict of understanding.
It’s the “Crisis in Consciousness” phase where we often must adjust our perspective in some vital way to help close this cycle off optimally.
Especially now, in Aquarius, with Saturn and Jupiter, the stakes are higher as we’re being called to access our best selves and manifest our highest potentials. Chances are all the significant changes, and unexpected events and offers of late have challenged your more profound sense of values and personal beliefs around what is good or not so good for your life.
It’s an important time where the resource of our energy reserves is coming into focus. Where are you putting your energy? Who is in your life? Who is not? What is the quality of your relationships? Are you showing up fully, sincerely, honestly, in love, in frustration, in exhaustion? It’s time to get clear with what you have and what you have not and make the appropriate adjustments to find the peace you need.
Foundations are being rocked, and this isn’t likely to change anytime soon as it’s the “2021 theme” with Uranus and Saturn squaring all this year. Think radical destabilization meets reformulation and reconstruction of foundations for future sustainability. We’re on an old crumbling bridge working hard to make it to the other side so we can successfully rebuild it for those behind us.
Can you see where in your own life some perspective you have may be hindering your path or limiting your options moving forward? Usually, our view is so deeply embedded to the point of becoming a belief or a truth. And this is where we may have to look very deeply at ourselves and ask, “Is this belief I’m holding onto really serving me?” We often limit ourselves and others by how we choose to see.
“Change your perspective, change the world.”
Taurus also teaches about getting too comfortable, stuck, and stagnant in one’s own values, beliefs, and preferences.
Now is a time to take a step back and see with eyes wide open. We are all in a rapid process of expansion, taking on an immense amount of pressure to get focused within all that is crumbling around us. Life is never going to be how it was, and we are letting go of so much daily. And amidst it all, like the pearl, many of us can see and feel deep within a grand new world is being created!
