My thoughts on “Needs and Desires” by Moti
In order to unfold inside of our lives and fulfill our deepest dreams and desires, we must be open to resources flowing in. For many who have been “spiritually” inclined, it can seem counter to our beliefs to open ourselves to abundance. Yet, without being open, we are limited in what we can make real. What do you wish to bring to fruition? Take steps to pursue your dreams and passions knowing that you were designed to be supported as your desires come forth into being.
So, what’s up the with heavens?
The Sun, traveling through Taurus, steadies us and helps us ground ourselves more...until it enters Gemini on the 20th ...and we embrace new experiences, exploring unfamiliar territory. The New Moon/Solar Eclipse on 9th, also in Taurus, stirs feelings of unfulfilled desires. The Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse on the 25th in Sagittarius, finds us yearning to share our philosophical insights.
Mercury enters Taurus on the 1st encouraging forthrightness in all our exchanges. Regardless of what we may have been taught, truth is essential in all our relationships if we are to live together in health and wholeness. Mars trines Pluto in Capricorn on the 5th as we take action to bring more light to things created in the past in need of transformation. Venus enters Gemini on the 9th and squares Uranus in Pisces on the 13th reminding us of the value in the viewpoints of others as we open our hearts to commune in spiritual ways.
Mercury moves into it's natural sign of Gemini on the 15th and forms a square to Neptune in Pisces on the 18th. We can grow spiritually in leaps and bounds when we are open to new perceptions. It is always beneficial to let go of beliefs that no longer serve us...regardless of how invested in them we may have been. As Uranus squares Pluto on the 20th, there is a further shaking up of the structures that no longer serve us. There is a dance to embrace...a balance we each must find...between safety and freedom. It will be through co-creating truly loving and sustainable structures that we can unfold together in all our glory.
As Mercury in Gemini squares Chiron in Pisces on the 22nd, we feel the places inside of us that have been shut down and we turn with nurturing toward our own souls. It is through self-compassion that we heal our souls. Mercury then conjuncts Venus on the 24th and Jupiter on the 27th. It doesn't serve us to not express our truth or share our values. It is by bringing forth our own passions and desires that we can grow our world into greater states of beauty and balance. As Venus conjuncts Jupiter on the 28th we gain insights into healthy pathways for new expansion.
Mercury enters Cancer on the 31st inviting us to communicate our real feelings more often, and as Mars enters Gemini on the 31st, we are filled with courage to explore new realities and to be more open to the perceptions of the others who have gone before us.
Happy Birthday Taurus!

The High Manifestation of Taurus Energy: Grounding ourselves through knowing and allow for what sustains and nourishes us.
The Shadow Manifestation of Taurus Energy: Having just for the sake of having. Being overtaken by greediness, gluttony, possessiveness and becoming entrenched in stances born of stubbornness.
The Full Spectrum of the Taurus/Scorpio Axis: “I realize and allow for what I need to sustain my life and to thrive and I share so that I might co-create in depth and beauty with others”
Taurus energy helps to guide us through the challenging terrain of materialism. Here we come to value knowing what it is we need in order to sustain and empower ourselves so that we can ground and unfold in our totality on the earth. We were each created with the passions and desires we carry deep within our souls and we also hold the keys to bringing them to fruition.
The goal is to find balance in stability and to gain stronger footing in our pursuits as we progress through life while remaining open to the organic nature of life and guiding principles of divine love. We must recognize our needs and to allow support to flow into our lives so that we can find fulfillment in ways that are in harmony with love. Love of all beings and love of the environment is key. We have been born into a divine creation that has gone astray and it is up to each of us to come to understand how we can create and co-create in alignment with divine energy. This entails loving ourselves and all life everywhere as well as growing our capacity to both receive and give freely.
Greed and selfishness will have no place in our divine destiny. We must realize the sacred nature of the gifts we are given and allow resources to flow through our lives effortlessly so they can reach the places that we, in our purest state, wish to see nurtured.
Taurus energy holds the wisdom of the potential for a loving world that is rich and wondrous to behold where we enjoy the earthly delights while honoring all living things.
Aries - Mar. 21 to Apr.19
Relinquishing our need for justice can be deeply liberating Aries. This notion can feel confusing in a world where so much imbalance and chaos is underway. Oftentimes, people are in complete error, living out of harmony with love, and they are not put in check. We must grow in trust that all is in divine order.
Taurus - Apr. 20 to May 20
There are times when pleasure seems out of reach and we must allow ourselves to feel a broader spectrum of emotions. If the usual external sources of pleasure seem are slipping through our fingers like sand, go into the resultant emotions. Allow feelings of loss to overwhelm you and release deeper grief in your soul.
Gemini - May 21 to June 20
Starting from scratch can be quite invigorating Gemini. Take a deep breath and release the old. There is nothing quite as inspiring and, at times unnerving, as facing a blank canvas. Moving into unknown terrain invites feelings of fear due to being out of control. This is how art is created. Indulge yourself and go there.
Cancer - June 21 to July 22
Sometimes our insights seem irrelevant to others Cancer. We can allow the feelings of others to pass through us without changing our relationship to our own sense of worth. We are all different, independent and separate from each other. When we connect with those who cannot see our worth, it does not make us worthless.
Leo - July 23 to Aug. 22
Spirit world interactions are ongoing with all of us all the time whether we are conscious of the effects or not. It is well worth it to acknowledge these influences, both positive and negative. Oftentimes, when we have an emotionally provocative experience, we can be overcome by another's energy and moved in directions not our own.
Virgo - Aug. 23 to Sept. 22
All that was known and learned and held onto dearly is released now to make room for more expanding Virgo. We can cling tenaciously to things we thought were truth, that were actually false beliefs passed onto us, with certainty, that were based upon untrue assumptions. You are allowed to let these things go.
Libra - Sept. 23 to Oct. 22
Magic in all its potential swirls around you these days Libra. It's as though the ripples that move out from a simple gesture are visible to the naked eye. This is a gift. You can work with awareness in loving and conscious ways to bring about desired change in your life. Be a conscious co-creator.
Scorpio - Oct. 23 to Nov. 21
There is not always an obvious correlation between our long-term efforts and the lack of apparent success. There are times when a sort of delay is in play. In fact, sometimes we can work directly on something and not see the effects show up for years into the future. Just do your best, trust and surrender.
Sagittarius - Nov. 22 to Dec. 21
Abundance is a state of mind you are able to move into and spend time holding Sag. There is truth in the notion that we can be in a singular set of circumstances yet have access to multitude of possible experiences. What we attract to us is dependent upon our soul condition. Everything is revealed.
Capricorn - Dec. 22 to Jan. 19
We are each capable of drawing upon higher energies to infuse us with more hope and understanding. It is not always easy to hold the more evolved view and see how everything fits together in a larger loving plan. In such times, it is wise to call on others who help can us hold in faith.
Aquarius - Jan. 20 to Feb. 18
What people or conditions are undermining your efforts Aquarius? This is what you contemplate now. Often, we can end up pressured into accepting things that are unloving and, despite what we have been taught to believe, are choices that are not good for us or aligned with what we would choose from places of true freedom.
Pisces - Feb. 19 to Mar. 20
Heroic efforts are sometimes needed Pisces. You are fluid and able to rise to the occasion. What is easy for you to accomplish can be a saving grace to another in need. You are filled with love and satisfaction as you show up for others who need you and who you can help without sacrifice.
