Weekend Love Forecast – Full Moon In Taurus Conjunct Uranus

fox faceFriday night, the Moon moves to Taurus… earthy, fixed, yin – the perfect counterpoint to Scorpio season. Taking it all in: the good, the bad, the weird. It conjoins Black Moon Lilith for the addition of a craving for our own brand of unrestrained grab for pleasure.

Remember consequences. But if those are manageable, have at it. This doesn’t need to be something taboo, but for some it may be. What it is will be a reflection of desire where the demands of others don’t enter in. If you’re not hurting anyone, go wild.

With Mercury retrograde at the end of Libra and Venus direct at the beginning, we can all talk ourself into or out of whatever we want. So be sure of what you’re after when you make a plan. This is true all weekend long.

With retro Mercury in Libra square Saturn in Cap, this is a time for renegotiation. If that’s you, consider this – do you have the “high ground” or are you asking for something you’ve no right to? Did you do the work or did something foundational genuinely change? Or perhaps it’s pure economics and a change in the relationship. How strong and how valid is your position?

Venus makes its way into opposition with Chiron in Aries, a reminder: Be real about what you want or what you get won’t please you. And if you have some damage around that, work on it.

As retrograde Mercury heads back into square with Saturn, there may be issues that go uncommunicated because previous attempts were beaten back or received badly. You may sense a barrier to particular subjects or find a stony reception. However, those who persevere and are pleasant in tone will likely prevail… but that doesn’t assure an outcome. Better results come from getting all your facts in line, working through them, and shining them up to their prettiest potential.

Make it sound desirable.

Choose your timing well. It makes a difference. That’s where the Venus-Chiron opposition can help. Whatever you’re presenting, make sure it’s genuine. Lies will out… eventually – but realistically at any time.

You may find you’ve figured out what you want… the hard way. But it’s oh so good that you know! Don’t discount that gift.

Saturday the Taurus Moon moves into tight conjunction with Uranus and opposition to the Scorpio Sun – the full moon. On Halloween! We’re in for a bumpy night. What makes it a bumpy night is the fixed desire to nail down a particular outcome and the Uranian inability to comply. Surprise!

With the veil to the otherworlds thinned and the Sun in the underworld, Taurus Moon is shocked by…

Well where is Taurus ruler Venus? Where is Mercury (senses and the mind/communications)? Libra. Cardinal, take control, make it fair and pretty Libra. That’s no shy maiden. The shy part is a mask. There’s air. Even with Mercury retrograde, this influence is discerning and clever. Libra air is at ease in debate! You don’t have to accept a bad bargain. Mars retrograde in Aries hits the midpoint of Venus and Mercury. Mars has just squared the Cap stellium. Mercury actively squares Saturn.

Are you looking for support and getting jammed? Being self centered is a thing right now, not wrong but a thing. If it’s too much, the universe will settle your hash. So we shall see.

What is FAIR? Could we see a reversal of fortunes that favors what is fair for those who are genuine? That would be awesome. And possible. But it also requires assertion and effort. Just keep that in mind. Do NOT be unfair in your dealings. “Who me?? NEVER!” What about to yourself? Don’t let shit slide. You may be the one to shock others… with fairness. With balance. With a different attitude or tone. Keep it sweet. You don’t have to yell to be heard.

Sunday the Taurus Moon sextiles Neptune and trines Jupiter, Pluto, then Saturn. Mercury perfects its square to Saturn. With the full moon sprung, is it possible we find bigger, deeper, lasting satisfaction having faced our demons? Could we find the opportunity to dream up something better for having spoken truth to authority, even risking the relative peace of the status quo?

What happens to the status quo when our stability is shaken by an unknown quantity that can’t be counted in the near term? Don’t waste too much time in shocked reaction. Cos let’s face it – unless aliens take over, it’s all pretty much in play. This looks like the ability to upgrade our sensitivities and roll with the punches. If we’re not trained up yet, when will we be? Libra is no sucker. We’ve got plenty of support from that arena.

The Taurus full moon takes place at 8 degrees. Where does that hit your chart? Where do Venus and Mercury in Libra transit your chart?

  1. ‘ If that’s you, consider this – do you have the “high ground” or are you asking for something you’ve no right to? Did you do the work or did something foundational genuinely change?’

    People are generally crabby and isolated these days and I’m no different. They’re frustrated and demanding and flouting everything. I am too a bit. I was trying to be considerate but am being punished cause others weren’t and I can’t sit still. Uranus transit.
    Fairness vs self centeredness yes. I point my finger at others for being selfish but I am too.

    ‘the fixed desire to nail down a particular outcome and the Uranian inability to comply.’
    Yeah. Both of these are in people. They want one thing to happen and they don’t wanna obey.

    ‘Venus makes its way into opposition with Chiron in Aries, a reminder: Be real about what you want or what you get won’t please you.’

    I say this to people often. To be real with me. I ought to be real with myself but it’s not easy.

    ‘What happens to the status quo when our stability is shaken by an unknown quantity that can’t be counted in the near term? Don’t waste too much time in shocked reaction.’

    This is a good idea. Many of us are feeling small and at the mercy of greatee forces. Maybe we do try to fit what happens into our world view too much. I don’t know how to roll with the punches and get trained up, that manual seems not to be written yet.

    I don’t know who our forward thinking intellectuals are, who can muse freely and with insight and perspective about the time.. who are our James Baldwins and W.H. Audens and Don DeLillos. I’m not cutting edge enough to know who can frame the chaos and predict what’s up. My friend told me to watch a talk with this professor Mark Blyth and talks about how Sean Carroll’s podcast Mindscape is very far ahead.

  2. I seem to use the Libra progressed moon in me to point my finger at others and tell them what to do. But am I being polite? Or just tutting at people? Or is being live and let live polite? And policing other people controlling?

  3. Wilfred Owen and Churchill were unflinching and philosophical about a large cataclysm beyond many people’s understanding. I seize up reading the doomsday clock bulletin or about ice sheets or AI. it’s not rational. A lot of people are feeling out of control and powerless.

      • satori, you think we have guys like this and I’m just missing it? You know, I wanted to be that kind of person 😀 (big ego I know)

        All I can think of is dudes that worship Elon musk. Even our comedians are totally disabled by fear and panic and can’t see past their own noses. Maybe David Attenborough will wake us up. (Btw check out this 14 year old naturalist Dara McAnulty.)

        • It looks like your comment got eaten?
          You mentioned:

          Gabor Mate, Alice Walker, TaNehisi Coates , Jane Goodall, Bill Moyers

          And that’s all I can remember so far

  4. It is a great gift. I would never discount it. And I did yell today. Enough was enough.

    I found the fairness thing very real for me. As mercury is backing over neptune in libra, felt that old neptunian victimization thing coming on. Where the heck did that come from? Aware of where I was going, quickly turned that back around.

    Full moon sextiling cancer moon, trining virgo sun jupiter and squaring aquarius chiron.

    Too much job time, I am thirsting for some physical labor in the crisp fall air. And that is what I am going to do, shutting off everything but that. Alls well in that.

      • I have it myself. This is why I could be projecting because I sense a crackliness in your recent writing.

        I used to let people put one over on me more.. now I can be a little brash with strangers, anything to uphold my boundaries. But, I did a little too much and pushed people away. I have a 12th house mars so my anger isn’t used well at all.

        These past few days I’ve noticed myself being demanding with others because I’m out of control and can’t solve my own problems.

        • Probably you are reading repressed anger because I often discuss how I am dealing with things that come up. I don’t feel anger, I don’t have the energy, however I do have to deal with conflicts. And I don’t have to go to anger to do that. It doesn’t work. I go right down to the pain that angry people don’t usually deal with, the root of it you know, make a decision and move forward. And Kri, if it is a projection, you are just normal, people have done that to me my whole life. What I dealt with in the bio unit, was a bullying sister who wanted me to do her anger for her. Had to give that up. That changed my life. When I see that coming at me now with anyone, I just think ‘do your own anger, I am not going to do it for you’. It’s messy. I had to get past it and doing it for others is not going to help them deal with their underlying issues. And people telling me what I feel, what the heck does anyone else know about that anyway.

          • …‘do your own anger, I am not going to do it for you’.

            YES! I realized in the last few months that I have been doing this for people, that I was sought out for this because of my assumed position of authority and knowledge at work to fight for what they should be doing for themselves. And I did it – I did it for them and paid a price. And once the desired outcome/fix came to fruition – dropped like a hot potato. Did a deep dive and saw the recurring pattern throughout my life.


            Lesson learned.

            • Do people tell you that you ‘make them feel’ a certain way?

              A favorite commenter of mine with Capricorn placements once described someone saying this to her. And she responded said, ‘I can’t make you FEEEEL anything!!’

              That really shocked me and I thought about it. As a kid I would often tell people they hurt my feelings. People do choose to react the way they want and are responsible for their own emotions.

              I say that but I am opposed to it. Who likes people who do stuff that makes them feel negatively? And then who brush it off with ‘I can’t make you feel anything.’ I have Venus in cancer. But, I’m sure I’ve affected people negatively without meaning to.

            • Could be worse laughing goat. I always sought to pull up the stragglers, get them in good standing. All I did was create monsters. They were not ready to be in good standing in the work group. If only I had been dropped like a hot potato, instead of having them turn on me along with the other attitude people in the group. I do not think they fare well out there with the attitude people. I try not to feel too good when news comes to me of their downfall. I took chances on some people that I should not have done, out of, out of, out of I don’t know what. So yeah, live and learn, eh? Capability and can do it ness will get us through. Come on, we rock, don’t we? Even though, it is hard to watch people struggle and fail. Allowing others to pull themselves up, or let them come to the realization that just maybe this is not the profession for them.

              • Agreed, it could be worse. I am betting that once the dust settles I’ll see the blessing in disguise. I’m thinking maybe I need to reframe my thought process, maybe look at what I have done for others as simply a good deed done. Period, end of story. And not feel used. Maybe be more discerning of who I help. Those who truly need it vs. those who just need my connection. I too, have to squash feeling a little joy when Karma comes around and bites them in the butt. (smiling)

                Thanks Notch, I always enjoy your comments and thoughts. And yes – WE DO ROCK!!

          • Ahhh I see. I’m still understanding where my anger is projected. And how.

            I think one thing I project is being demanding. I am probably demanding and don’t realize it. And I often point my finger at others these days for being inconsiderate? Yeah well I cracked the crisper drawer some days back.

  5. What I really wanted to say about this full moon uranus thing is that I am really enjoying the processes other people are going through. Mercury in libra, I don’t know. It is just so amusing. Mercury retrograde issues. Sometimes people from the past come back into people’s lives and it just isn’t the same anymore. One person was laughing hysterically at what her old acquaintance was preaching and all I could think is that used to be you. My letter writing friend was funny too. She wrote this long letter and then said at the end ‘how could I write this much when I am not doing anything.’ Yup she was always I am doing this, doing that, going here, going there. There is yet another letter I have not opened. I am intrigued and ready to open today. Another said in response to an interaction she had, I’ve changed, I’m not there anymore.

    I don’t know why people’s processes delight me. Change delights me for some reason. Mercury*uranus. And even though I get bored with repeated repetition, I don’t necessarily like change for me. As my old planning buddy used to say, Plans are good. For other people. So I will copy that and say Change is good. For other people. 😀

    Where’s the daybreak? I want to work outside.

  6. I think too Kri, (yup still no daylight), that when I say yell it means putting the cards on the table. In this particular situation I had a deadline. I said I could meet that deadline. But then the person continues to call me every hour, how are you doing, how are you doing, what percentage do you think you have done, I had to tell her I am not going to be able to meet this deadline if you keep interrupting me. Well she needed a percentage so she could update her planning map with the percentage. What???? What kind of job is that. Oh, micro managing. Now that disturbs me and there is nothing I can do about those people. They are working against the end goal. Energy suckers.

      • Do you have a job? Jobs can be stressful. Don’t try to make me sad about it. I don’t have time to be depressed.

        Speaking of which, lunch is over, back outside.

        But first, hello Satori, you did hit the nail with ‘no right to’. That’s the other conflict I am dealing with. Someone thinks the world should revolve around them. Too much people involved for that. I am preparing response to what I know is coming next week as I slay the invasive species that threaten takeover of my wood lot. Oh dear, my two worlds collide.
