Moon in Taurus Conjunct Uranus Retrograde
In astrology, nothing is ever black and white. Honestly, this is why astrology is such a healthy practice for me, it challenges me to see the nuances in all of us and what life brings to us. My nature is to keep things super simple. Black and white thinking feels safer to me, but I've learned that it's only safer in the short term, it only keeps me comfortable for a little bit, until it becomes overwhelmingly clear that I cannot live in a black and white way. It can be intimidating to open up to something the mind cannot grasp.
Today the moon is moving through Taurus. The moon is considered exalted in the sign of Taurus, but it's not that simple. Uranus is also in Taurus, and it is retrograde, and around 3pm EST, the moon will share space in the sky with Uranus, and we may find that our emotions are unsettled. Security loving Taurus will highlight our need for freedom to change how we feel and how we express what we need. Expect things to feel a little different today, whether it's your own internal emotional experience or the way the people in your life are acting and reacting.
If you feel heavy or stuck today, writing in a journal and exploring what's underneath of that may prove to be healing. When you see this aspect in a birth chart it often suggests some sort of sudden emotional trauma during childhood, perhaps a sudden loss of a family member or friend, it could even be the experience of being outed by a group of friends.
Whenever a planet is retrograde, like Uranus is now, it's not uncommon for things to feel heavier, slower, and for things to come up from the past. With the moon entering the picture, we're often exploring old emotions, our history, and things from the past that unsettled our sense of security. Trust what comes up today and lean into the healing that the moon is offering to you with it.
Also, embrace a sudden need for change, changing how you feel about a situation, changing your emotional state quickly, or just feeling like you need a lot of SPACE today. I'm about to head to a CPR class, so space isn't something I'll be getting too much of this morning, but right now I'm taking the space while I can get it.
Have a beautiful day, love to you!
