This chart promises the potential for both Neptune’s mysterious plague and Pluto’s creaking death cart.  They are in connection for the moment.   But it also promises the construction (Saturn) of a new healing (Chiron).  Perhaps the Earth will benefit from enforced quarantine, perhaps we will make new discoveries around the immune system, but, whatever else, we will never be the same planet or people.   We know we can change everything we take for granted, our work, our social structure, our ability for sudden transformation and potential for infinite resilience.

No surprise, the worldwide wonder of each day continues, as a new Moon begins in Taurus.  The Lunar cycle begins each month when Sun and Moon meet at the same degree.  This particular degree in Taurus has a strong image, a promise we have heard before.

‘The Pot of Gold at the end of the Rainbow.   Riches that come from linking the celestial and the earthly nature.  ….the bridge used by divine beings to communicate with mortals.   Man need not be overawed by the celestial display of power, for it leads to a fruitful contact with beings of light. ‘  Sabian Symbol for the degree of Sun and Moon in Taurus. *

A Plague and ‘a Pot of Gold at the End of the Rainbow’ is an interesting combination.  How would that look?    Perhaps like this image by Amelia Leonards.

Astrology, at its best, communicates the connection between ‘celestial and the earthly nature.’   A quick look at this chart shows a ‘bowl’ (or a pot of gold?) pattern with only six houses (segments) of the circle occupied by planets and luminaries.  Looking at the form of the pattern here we see a very clear rainbow (crescent) shape in the placement of the planetary occupants.

Cheek and jowel with the Luminaries is the planet of surprise, and upset, Uranus.  Expect more shaking of your world.  But no one is alone in this place of shock and awe. It is a universal phenomenon.   The Biblical rainbow came after a huge flood, and could be interpreted to mean: Cosmic forces offering peace.  What form will the next message take?

There is an interesting combination of planets in this moment which might give us a clue.    Mars,  shape and form of energy; Mercury, the messenger and healer; and Venus, the expression of love are in a crescent shaped relationship.  Venus in Gemini loves clever rapport, and friendly banter.  Since Gemini is ruled by Mercury, and Mercury is in a sign ruled by Mars, the three seem to be united in their message.   Don’t be afraid to move in new ways, says Mars in Aquarius….think and speak with courage and bravado says Mercury in Aries, respect  the rules of love and friendship says Venus in Gemini.   This recipe spells political courage and activism, new alliances between all those who have been most deeply hurt by this extraordinary challenge to human existence. Maybe it’s time to ask: How do we listen (Mercury) to the passionate (Mars) love (Venus) of each other instead of the powerful interests of those who benefit from our disarray.

But now it’s time to take a close look at the sign of Taurus.  Sun and Moon meet here  every year at this delicious time of spring beauty in the Northern Hemisphere, final harvest Moon in the  South.

When the Moon is in Taurus, she is in her exaltation.  This is a mirror to the last sign, Aries, when the Sun was in his exaltation in Aries.  The Bull is chosen as a sacred symbol of the Moon because his horns are the crescents which mark waxing and waning.  Moon is joyful in a sign ruled by Venus, and loves the mystery of fertility which this symbol honors.  For the Druids Taurus was a sacred time, and the bull was a sacred animal. It’s interesting that Saturn, the great teacher is powerful when located in the two signs, ruled by Venus, Taurus and Libra.  There is some sweet connection between this feared and ancient magician, and the power of the Queen of Love.  The illustration is also connected to the Three of Cups Tarot card. Celebration and gratitude are part of the season. The constellation is connected to the labyrinth of Crete and the sacrifice of a white bull each spring in the Celtic lands. Taurus is one of three Earth signs in the zodiac, and Beltane, the Fire Festival of this element falls on the fifth day of May.   Taurus is ‘fixed’ upon the unfolding of each blossom and the opening of the season of Green.

Apple blossoms

Aphrodite

In the core of our apple,

the planet earth,

dwells the great polestar

of the underworld-

Lord of Change,

Transformer Eternal,

Hades himself.

 

With each breath

he draws into his lungs

the Universe begins anew.

He alone has the key

to every rusted lock.

 

Whoever has walked

across a freshly plowed

field at twilight,

in spring’s season,

and raised loving eyes,

to see the crescent Moon,

adorned in her

diamond earring,

you are about to enter

the drama which,

has no beginning,

and knows no end.
