tomatoes1Here in the San Juans, the green, green grass of Taurus is often covered with snow. Moisture comes in a variety of guises, but its purpose remains the same: Water, aka H2O. Establish, feed, nourish, nurture and sustain life. Everywhere we see buds and sprouts, another yearly growing season has begun.

peppers1For all of us here in the Northern Hemisphere of our home planet, Taurus is the time to recognize our connection to the Mother Earth, work in harmony with her moods and seasons, plant seeds, take care of seedlings, provide life support and foster growth. Like the Tortoise and the Hare, Aesop reminds us that slow and steady, patience and perseverance pay off in the end. (The Tortoise must have been a Taurus, and the Hare an Aries – fast and impatient – or perhaps a Sagittarius – all fired up and ready to go!) In any case, let’s capitalize on these days and times by slowing the pace, and committing to the race. DSC00097After all, it’s a marathon, not a sprint! One day and one thing at a time, we do get it done. And don’t lose sight of the upcoming Mercury station of May 18th when the fleeted-footed messenger of the gods goes retrograde. No better time than the late Taurus Sun with a middle-degree Gemini Mercury retrograde to stop running in circles.

tomatoes2Good luck and may the tenacity; determination, commitment and focus of the Bull sustain and nourish your gardens and your life. Blessings, peace and starlight. Cz***

Aries (Mar. 20-Apr. 19) The green, green grass of Taurus hits you where it counts: heart and soul. Nothing like the fertile fields of Mother Earth to remind you of life’s most precious, simple pleasures. Take time to do appreciate clean air and water, nutritious food and a safe, sweet, peaceful place to fall. Uranus in mid-Aries continues to shake, rattle and roll your heart and soul, inside and out. Good news: the brave new world awaits the brave new you!

Taurus (Apr. 19-May 20) The Taurus cross-quarter week is perennially a time of intensified celestial electromagnetism. Halfway between equinox and solstice, gravitational pulls from Sun to Earth peak, all life upon the planet synergistically feels the force of dynamic growth and change. And with ruler Venus moving into Cancer, expect to jump heart first into something you love. Something about you. Have fun and enjoy Act One.

Gemini (May 20-June 20) Viola! You have arrived in a romantic place and time, an energy vortex of love and magic. Don’t give it up or doubt the mystery, embrace it heart and soul. It’s been too long since you trusted the Universe to provide you with all you need and relaxed. Now you can. Recognizing the existence of metaphysical power and manifestation is key to where and what you are. Live accordingly, with knowledge, in love and light.

Cancer (June 20-July 22) Voluptuous Venus enters Cancer this week and gifts you with a sparkling ocean of embracing beauty and endless bounty. The big challenge: are you willing to trust that everything is exactly as it should be in this moment, exactly as it is? If the answer is yes, are you willing to accept responsibility for the condition of your life and your relationships? Now is the magical time for transforming everything. Yes.

Leo (July 22-Aug. 22) The Taurus zodiac month evolves each day with ever-more beauty and wonder. The Mother Earth comforts and nurtures the Lion with her great regenerative power of birthing and nurturing life, season to season, year after year. It’s the ultimate maternal energy, one that comforts and heals, soothes and relaxes. Do not loose touch or sight of this eternal secret. Fix up, clean up and embrace it, inside and out.

Virgo (Aug. 22-Sep. 22) The Taurus sun-time joins up with velvet Venus now in nurturing Cancer, presenting you with a variety of options regarding romantically charged and spiritually enlightened relationships. Whether or not you find yourself committed to or seriously involved with another, now is time to deepen your understanding of true love. Freedom and responsibility are essential to happiness. Give and live both.

Libra (Sep. 22-Oct. 22) Taurus and Libra are symbiotically related through Venus, although they are mathematically inconjunct. This translates as a supportive, stimulating partnership, one that sweetly adjusts perspectives and understandings, awakens growth, calms the spirit and soothes the soul. Touch, smell, feel and work with the Mother Earth, honor her natural beauty and nurturing power, share love, cultivate gratitude and relax.

Scorpio (Oct. 22-Nov. 21) On the heels of a seductive, evocative Scorpio full Moon, you may feel exposed and unearthed. Trust your angels, the results of this lunation are ultimately cathartic. Blessings abound. Recent experience and awareness serve to cleanse and transmute the toxic poisons of negativity, fear and self-doubt. Thoughts generate emotions, manifest action or inaction. Understand desire and focus on good intention. Live in the light.

Sagittarius (Nov. 21-Dec. 20) With the Sun in your solar 6th house of service and self-improvement, life purpose comes strongly via helping others by first helping yourself. Have you ever noticed happiness is an inside job? Letting the emotional quotient of others determine how you feel is simple quicksand, a dangerous place you do not want or need to go. It will suck you down and actually hurts them too. Health is wealth, focus on good health. No joke.

Capricorn (Dec. 20-Jan. 19) As love and beauty planet Venus moves into your solar 7th house of longterm partnership and marriage, you find great pleasure in the faces and spaces of others. You may even feel the desire to commit, experience the value of mutually exclusive relationships and want to spend more quality time with someone you love. Home and family continue a process of metamorphic transformation. Ultimately, it’s all good.

Aquarius (Jan. 19-Feb. 18) Motivational Mars in Taurus keeps you working at home and getting it done, whatever that means, however it evolves. Personal inner work is also favored. Spend quality time in nature; hear, touch and feel the Mother Earth. Cultivate inner peace via daily spiritual practice. Remain calm and trust the Universe. One day and moment at a time.

Pisces (Feb. 18-Mar. 20) Sweet Venus moves into Cancer and your solar 5th house of romance and creativity this week, gifting you with a month of more beauty and peace than you have had in a while. Feel the inspirational power of beauty and art, cultivate creative pastimes and pursue relationships the nurture self-expression. And don’t be surprised if you fall in love with something or someone. Trust your heart, follow your intuition and enjoy the joy
