The Sun in Aquarius squares the moon in Taurus. The moon will rise at noon, peak at dusk and set at midnight all over the world, no matter your time zone. The moon is waxing, gathering momentum for fullness. The moon enters Taurus on Feb 10, staying until just after midnight on Feb 13, then moving on to Gemini for the next 60-hour round, then Cancer, and so on and so forth. The moon completes her revolution around the earth in 29 days, but since the earth is also moving around the sun, the moon completes her revolution through the zodiac in just 27.33 days (Aries – Pisces). On Feb 19 the moon enters Virgo, marking the beginning of yet another super full moon.
New moons clear the field. At the first quarter, we take a step. In this instance, that step is inward. The first quarter moon in Taurus brings grounding and precious stability amidst whirlwind traveling within/without. Taurus lives slowly, and with real richness. From Taurus we learn the art of comfort; from Aquarius, radical living. Taurus is an incredible hostess. This moon phase is all about good company, good food, fine aesthetics — whatever makes you feel at home. Though any moon phase during the Aquarius cycle generally signals travel, in this case that travel usually leads to someone else’s doorstep, or perhaps you might host someone from far away. In any case, prepare to give and receive with open hands.
We find the bull woven into cultural fabric all around the planet. In ancient Egypt, Taurus was known as Hathor, goddess of motherhood. Hathor is known for her special connection to music, turquoise and a necklace called the menat: a musical turquoise piece exclusively worn by women in ancient Egypt. Singing and the neck are still associated with Taurus today, as well as other aspects of the throat chakra, like the color turquoise. Wear a blue scarf or necklace to invoke Hathor’s gentle power and protect the throat. If you don’t already, I highly recommend using a neti pot every morning.
This is going to be a great quarter moon. Luna forms a harmonious trine to Pluto. Prepare for the formidable commingling of the emotional body (moon) and our deepest soul drive to evolve (Pluto). We can accomplish incredible things under this influence. Though we might feel a bit lethargic, there is potential to get some serious (emotional/psychological) work done, especially as relates to domestic life or relationships with women. We can mold and manifest anything we please. Meditate on abundance and stability.
