You might be tired of reading - "this is a big week" - but this is a BIG (!!!!) week.

On SUNDAY, Mercury - after MONTHS in Aries - slips into Taurus for just 26 days. Mercury (communication, conversation, thoughts, ideas) is grounded and steady (and fixed) in Taurus. The war of words is over.

Communications and thinking turn to practical things. The pace slows. It's back to basics.  

Taurus gets results through self-sufficiency, by bringing ideas and concepts 'down to earth', by being sensible. Information and the physical world are adjusting to each other. 

This is not the time to enact complicated plans unless we want to make ourselves (and everyone else) cray-cray. Better to drill down to the fundamentals now.

Now, the thing to keep in mind this year (Mercury transits Taurus annually) is that Uranus - the planet that is anything BUT steady - is moving into Uranus for the first time in 84 years in about 48 HOURS. So, how steady Mercury will ACTUALLY be for the next 26 days in Taurus is anyone's guess.

The fly in the ointment with Mercury in Taurus has always been its fixed nature. One of the reasons for the information slowing down is that everyone becomes entrenched in their position and digs in. Compromise becomes a four letter word and there aren't alot of choices. The answer is either yes or no, there is no maybe with Taurus.

With Uranus moving into Taurus on Tuesday some of this Mercurian 'entrenchment' won't be possible this year. I have been saying Trump is Uranus since the election (with Uranus on his Sun and North Node natally), so we'll see how Uranus's change of position - from fire to earth - will work for him. Will he stable out a bit? or double down on his scorched Earth maneuverings until he burns out?

On MONDAY, the Moon (in Taurus) will trine stable Saturn while we sleep - we should wake up feeling steady and grounded. At 5:44PM EDT the Moon will sextile (opportunity) mystical Neptune - excellent energy to relax, meditate, create art, be all dark Moon lazy. At 8:08PM EDT the Moon will oppose Jupiter (in Scorpio) - this is expansive energy, could be a bit overbearing and too much if we meet it outside ourselves. If we use this energy to look within, it can bring to light buried issues about how we get in our own way and block Taurean flow - love, money, resources. The entire day's energy really flows perfectly into Tuesday's big events.

At 7:48AM EDT on TUESDAY, the Moon conjuncts the Sun and gives us the Taurus New Moon (24 degrees). The Moon trines (brakes off) a retrograde Pluto (in Capricorn) and Mars (in Aries). This is stable, ambitious energy. An excellent launch pad to create something lasting within your natal Taurus house theme and the universal Taurus themes of money, physical resources, our values and self-esteem.

This is about bringing all our resources/talents/skills to the table. It's use it or lose it time. Remember we tend to undervalue the things we inherently do well. There is no time for that crap any longer. You have to bring everything you carry. We are late in the day, folks.

Taurus is the sign of Mother earth.

This would be the time to stop weeding and get those seeds into the ground.

At 11:23AM EDT Uranus slips into Taurus. He was last in Taurus from June 1934 to May 1942.

This is about the revolution (Uranus) of what we value (Taurus). The Earth (Taurus) will shake (Uranus).

Uranus will be in Taurus until he slips back into Aries late fall for his retrograde, returning to Taurus for the long haul in February 2019. So we get a taste of this now, then he heads back to finish up the last 7 years in Aries, then he hunkers down into Taurus until .

Anything past its expiration date in your Taurus house is going to go bye-bye.

See more in my post HERE about Mid-May.

So, the New Moon starts off in grounded Taurean fashion and then heads off in a new direction. An entirely new direction.

I will write a post by sign this week. I just wanted to get something up today.

Changes, likely something that challenges our sense of security, could start off with a BANG. 

xo - back tomorrow.
