Taurus New Moon April 21, 2012 : Overview and Fixed Stars


April 21st. Today's New Moon @ 2 degrees Taurus happens in the early morning around the world from 12:18 AM on the West Coast to 7:18 AM UT in other parts of the world. The Sabian Symbol for 2 degrees Taurus - An electrical storm. may not seem appropriate at first since Earth Day coincides with this pragmatic salt of the earth lunation but considering the weird weather, thunderstorms and tornadoes leading up to this lunation it fits. In the UK where the New Moon has a curious, versatile and highly mutable Gemini rising @ 22 degrees we see another (Sabian Symbol) "Three fledglings in a next high in a tree." Birds that are ready to take their maiden flights. Angry birds strike again. On Thursday, there were three high profile incidents of birds flying into jet engines. Bird Strikes Hitting Senior Obama Administration Officials' Planes including Biden

Fixed Stars at UT
 In this chart set for 7:18 AM UT Deneb Algedi the Heliacal Rising Star Deneb Algedi has been strong in March/April with high profile court cases. Deneb Algedi a star in the Sea Goat's tail. According to Robson is symbolically called the "Judicial Point of the Goat". Regulus, the heart of the Lion is the Heliacal Setting Star one of the Royal Persian Star and the Watcher in the North. Since Regulus is setting the next couple of weeks will bring news of a worldwide celebrity or leader who has natural talents but will be attacked by rumors.

 Gemini Rising in the New Moon chart for UK/UT  relates well to the symbol of birds and with a close square to Pallas in mystical Pisces. Pallas in Gemini enhances the theme of psychic, faith healing along with guided imagery. With Pallas in Gemini in this 90 degree aspect there is merging and diffusion which occurs in conjunction with spiritual techniques along with film and movies. In this chart Venus in flirtatious Gemini is in the 12th house @ 14 degrees. where secret loves and eroticism can blossom. The other side of Venus in the 12th is to underscore the Sun (Taurus) spiritually oriented trine with Neptune in Pisces.

  Venus Retrograde from May 15th to June 27th. I digress to emphasis the fact that Venus will station retrograde on May 15th @ 24 Gemini and won't move direct till June 27th @ 8:07 AM PDT @ 7 degrees Gemini. When Venus, the sign of love, pleasure, relaxation, harmony, money and values is retrograde there is more obsession in relationships along with doubts about love that is offered. In fact we may notice that relating others could be more awkward. With Venus retro. we are likely to find our ability to attract or magnetize what we want restricted or inhibited. Many people will be more concerned with achieving or external beauty, enhancing the flow liquid cash, questioning your ideas of pleasure, aesthetics, or even revaluating their feelings about romantic relationships.

This solid New Moon acts as a gateway for several world initiations and rebuilding efforts
New Moon over San Francisco and the West Coast with Fixed Stars Sagittarius is rising at the degree of the Galactic Center describing swift changes within and without the bay area. Jupiter though is the ruler of the chart and @ 17 degrees Taurus in the 5th house will light up the music, singing and entertainment industry.
Looking at the Fixed Stars for this New Moon over San Francisco, California we see: Fomalhaut is the Heliacal Rising Star from the constellation the Southern Fish (Pisces Australis) Fomalhaut, is one of the Royal Persian Stars or one of "four Guardians of Heaven", sentinels watching over other stars. When rising per Robson brings great and lasting honors This royal star also aligns with the archangel Gabriel (Fomalhaut) watcher of the South. Fomalhaut which bestows magic on charisma on this lunation and stimulates dreams and ideals for a better world. Also deals with a hubris or pride which can bring downfalls. Denebola the non-conforming tale in the Lion constellation is about finding alternate solutions to problems by stepping outside of the established order. My guess is that not only will this involve the much touted silicon valley entrepeneurs but much more pervasive reaction from the populous.

 April 21st. Today's Venus ruled New Moon will signify a calmer day with much of the action happening in the morning
with the Taurus Moon Sextile Neptune in Pisces @ 2:25 AM
A greater sense of spirituality meets sensitivity and compassion now.
Our intutition is strong. Since the Moon Trines Mars @ 5:12 AM it is a time of action but also the formation of a Grand Earth Trine Today's Grand Earth Trine features the Moon Trine Mars in Virgo and trine Pluto now retrograde in Capricorn At 4:25 PM today the Moon trines Pluto which helps us let go of inhibitions and opens us up to major transformations. This is a major trine which is helping the earth herself rebuild and will include tectonic earth changes. In fact today's Grand Trine is a preview of what is to come when the Sun trines Mars on April 23rd. The Taurus Sun is now in charge meeting the Moon in a peaceful encounter, as issues around security and possesions become more important News about real estate, jewelry and sustainable agriculture will began to take shape.

The image above of a farmer working his land as the Popocatepetl volcano spews a cloud of ash and steam high into the air captures the essence of this time period. One thing for sure there was a major shift as the Sun entered Fixed Taurus on April 19th. @ 9:12 AM the sign of the farmer with the symbol of the bull and minotaur. Since the Sun is on track to meet Ceres (nurturing with food and sex) and also Jupiter (ethics-morals) expanding all things Taurus We should expect even more PR and revelations from the Secret Service Hooker Scandal EXCLUSIVE: First photos of Colombia escort in explosive Secret Service hooker scandal Aries represents the Ram who demonstrates adolescent bravado that can go on a berserk rampage when he doesn't get his way But whenTaurus which is slow to anger, finally blows his/her top - watch out and don't mess with the horns!
