A Full Moon in slow-moving, earthy Taurus today, at 18 degrees (3:17 pm EST), puts a focus on finding contentment and enjoyment in the simpler pleasures of life. It also places a spotlight on our values, and may be able to provide us with added insight, clarity and feedback on how we are managing our resources. Too, what we attract to us is often a reflection of what we value. Maybe If we are unhappy or unfulfilled with the elements surrounding us at this Full Moon, it could be that we need to go inside ourselves and take a closer look at where we have been putting our focus lately. Perhaps we have been putting our attention in the wrong areas, investing our time and energy in the wrong things, and we need to make some adjustments now.  Full Moons can trigger crisis situations and turning points in consciousness. Too, it could be that pivotal events happening in the collective now may also have the net affect of helping to alter or reshape our values or belief systems.

Energy planet Mars, governing self-assertion, is also shifting from flashy, entertaining Leo into organizing, analytical Virgo today (11:15 pm EST), the sign of work and health, where it will stay until next July. With Mars in Virgo, there is an emphasis on honing or perfecting our skills or craft. It is also an excellent period for instituting positive health changes. For instance, we may be more driven and fired up to adhere to diets now. Or an exercise program. In the body, Virgo rules the intestines and the process of digestion. The intestines break down food particles so that they may be better assimilated. Symbolically, Mars in Virgo also energizes us to carefully digest our life experiences so that we may take away from them practical, useful substance or content. Virgo is a highly resourceful sign that helps to make us very self-sufficient. It is also a sign that takes pleasure in being of service or utility to others.

“Curiosity begins as an act of tearing to pieces or analysis.” Samuel Alexander
