My Own Kind of Music
New Moon | May 15, 2018 | 24 Taurus 36'
“Everything old is new again.” – Peter Allen.
The Awakener (Uranus) is revitalizing the ground of self-worth (Taurus). The Sun and Moon are trine the Capricorn sector (old) that is occupied by Pluto and Mars. Capricorn can present form as deadened life, however, Pluto transcends the old and outworn, including old outworn ideas about aging. It is dull and dulling to think decline. It is renewing to think that age meets sage and the best is yet to come.
If the planets in Capricorn show problems, obstacles and unwanted things, let the problems, obstacles, and unwanted things help you to outline the way you want things to be. Don’t let appearances convince you that the road is closed.
“Wait with patience on me thy Lord, and I will show before thee, straight and true, a path of safety where now an abyss seems to open at thy feet.” – Book of Tokens
Uranus will enter Taurus four hours after the culmination of this New Moon. Uranus changes signs roughly every seven years. It takes 84 years to go around the chart, so this is its first time in Taurus in 84 years. We could look back 84 years for clues, but why do that? So much has changed since then. Astrologers say that Uranus is the most unpredictable of the three higher-octave planets, so, who really knows? Besides. Uranus is the planet that rules astrology, so maybe there is something to be said about prediction in general.
That said, I got out my Tarot Keys to help me interpret this astrological signature. The symbols are yesterday, today, and tomorrow and they do yield clues. The planets allow the observance of correspondence. No one ever goes through anything that is not reflected in the chart by a capable observer.
The Fool (Key 0) represents Uranus, and The Hierophant Key (5) represents Taurus. Key 5 is the Inner Teacher, Inner Wisdom, and Intuition. Uranus is the Awakener. I would expect Awakened Intuition and I would bid you to spend 10 – 15 minutes a day quieting your mind so that you can hear your own messages and interpret your own dreams. “Let me hear the message Thou hast prepared for me this day,” say the words of a Sunday service ritual. Let me be able to hear my personal instruction. Let me make my own kind of music and sing my own special song, to paraphrase Cass Elliot.
Consider these phrases for Uranus in Taurus, and choose one or a few that speak to you, either to your sense of where you are, or to your sense of where you want to be.
Create an affirmation for your phrase. Ex: “I expect to be awakened to the voice within and to be guided to scintillating money.”
