Thursday April 20 at 00:12 EDT there is a New Moon in Aries with a Solar Eclipse, which forms a square with Pluto. Watch your rivals. Keep an eye out for any chaos unfolding around you. Obstacles may appear in your path now, likely they were already present in some form though. Extreme emotion will be very difficult to contain now. Be patient if triggered. Avoid acting on impulse. Damage and destruction can occur easily under these energies. At the same time great power to make significant change can be summoned and directed now.
The Moon will move into Taurus at 00:30 EDT Thursday. The Sun will join the Moon in Taurus at 4:13 AM EDT Thursday, kicking off Taurus Season 2023. Many will be drawn toward what makes them feel secure on Thursday and Friday. Mercury goes retrograde in Taurus on Thursday. As per usual, people with Taurus personal planets will be impacted most by this three week retrograde. Try to stay out of the past. Avoid misplaced nostalgia. Manage expectations. Be patient with slowed progress. Plan for delays, interference and obstacles.
Taurus Season itself is a physical and material security oriented season. A strong practical energy sets the overall tone of the season and directs our building and maintaining actions. That being said, the Taurus Sun brings awareness of the important role pleasure plays in life, and its energy encourages us to indulge ourselves. Commitments have great appeal during Taurus Season, even to the more choice challenged folk among us. Many successful marriages occur during Taurus Season. The 10 of Pentacles in the Tarot is the Earth Element marriage card, and it suggests connection, alignment, shared values, fertility, longevity and abundance in a love partnership.
