The Sun and Moon in an Earth sign… Hello double Taurus!
However, Saturn and Jupiter are squaring the Sun and Moon — sweet and sour sauce sitting in our world. That square in astro-jargon says: We are not in an easy time.
I think so many of us thought COVID would have passed by now. Sure, we are not on lockdown — that’s true — but there is still so much mystery scaring us.
While we are supposed to be steeped in a delicious Taurus sky describing the yum yum factor, I do not feel it. I feel sad.
I have so much to give thanks for. I am sure if you are reading this, you do too! You have a computer, love in your home, running water, and everything you need. We are in the one percentile — we are surely blessed.
For me, I have a whole new team in my company. I have never felt more secure in my business life. Yes, the double-Earth energy is here; however, there is an overlay of sadness hanging around.
I just arrived back in Boulder. I had no idea why I felt so heavy until I thought… ‘oh my God, an atrocity just occurred here a month ago.’ Ten people were killed in my town. How could that not affect the zeitgeist?
What a downer. Look around: summer is arriving. Real estate in north America is booming. Cyberspace is overpopulated. It’s like Madison Square Garden, only none of us have to find out seat.
Back to double Taurus. How dare we forget to smell the flowers, take off our shoes, and remember what’s important.
If I mention those in India, those in hospital beds who cannot see their loved ones, the lack of oxygen in their hospitals, the number of refugees looking for a home on this planet… we’re back to being sad again.
The sweetness of the double Taurus sky reminds us that the simple pleasures are what matter most in life. May we never take for granted the smell of coffee, a rose, or the top of a baby’s head. And yet, I walk around feeling sad.
Duality rules supreme in this universe. This new moon asks us to go inside and stand away from sweet OR sour.
I had this thought in my mind arrive yesterday: Enlightenment has no preference for happy or sad; it’s indifferent to the outer experience.
During this new moon, let’s try this prayer…
Help me to accept what is.
Give me the peace of simplicity, regardless of the outer world.
Let the sadness and the sweetness be mixed together to create wisdom.
The wisdom of the Buddha (who as we know is a Taurus) said that meditation is the answer to all the questions that create suffering.
The meditation of this week is: Allow me to accept what is.
I’m not very good at this. It’s a practice. I’m determined to fall in love with this place, no matter what.
Pain, pleasure, sadness, joy… Alone together, all that duality will hopefully produce the perfect combo to create sweet and sour sauce, allowing us to find acceptance of what is.
In true double Taurus fashion, indulging in some chocolate, the warmth of a hug, or the comfort of your favorite slippers is going to have to be enough.
Jupiter and Saturn squaring the Sun and Moon surely suggests discomfort.
I’d love to know if you’re experiencing it — let me know in the comments below.
