Tracing the shadow of astrology and art

Daily Forecasts

February 11th, 2019

Today the Moon is in Taurus, the fixed earth sign symbolized by the bull. Taurus is ruled by Venus, and the Moon is considered to be exalted when in Taurus. This is a gorgeous placement for the Moon, and for the next two days we will be encouraged to live fully in our bodies. Cultivate a sense of the here-and-now. Taurus knows all about the preciousness of the present, and the wisdom that comes from taking your time.

In the morning we’ll see the Moon trine Venus, which is currently in Capricorn. Moon trine Venus brings us a harmonious feeling, the synchronization kindnesses, and the desire to be empathetic with one another. This is a lovely aspect for making art, for reaching out to people you care for, and for nurturing yourself however you see fit.

In the evening, the Moon forms an energized sextile to Neptune, the planet of intuition, dreams, and foggy feelings. This is yet another gorgeous aspect for the experience of living through our psychic senses, of tapping into our intuitive core and pulling out new insight. Meditate on your fantasies tonight. Though they may be shrouded in blue mist, at the center of each one lies a stone that represents the physical manifestation of that desire. Imagine yourself holding it in your palm. It grows warm, and so do you.
