Last Quarter Moon in Taurus

Thought for the Day: Play today; pay tomorrow

Today the Moon enters the last quarter of its cycle as the Sun in willful Leo squares the Moon in conservative Taurus. Money, finances, resources, and security may be on our minds as sunny and optimistic Leo is seeking to satisfy desires, and Taurus is keenly aware of the price and tradeoffs. The Moon in Taurus is taking a longer view and with a lunar opposition to Jupiter we might be concerned about letting our expansive and expensive tastes run up the credit card bills. A positive lunar connection to Neptune lets us imagine how satisfaction can be found in non-material outlets including creativity and spirituality. Instead of buying something new, perhaps we can feel fulfilled with more organic activities like spending time with friends and family, being outside, enjoying nature, walking, hiking, biking, playing sports, working on a hobby or craft, or talking about future plans.

Quarter Moons are always time to settle up, or re-negotiate. We don’t have to give up our dreams; in fact we should be diligent in nurturing them. Paving the way to success tomorrow, may include taking a more cautious and practical route today that keeps our options open. 

There is no need to go to India or anywhere else to find peace. You will find that deep place of silence right in your room, your garden or even your bathtub.
