A Workshop for the New Moon in Taurus, Full Moon in Scorpio, Astrology of April 22 - May 21 + A Journey through Venus Retrograde Pt 1
The New Moon in Taurus arrives on April 22. This New Moon urges us to slow down, pay attention to our bodies, enjoy simple pleasures and rethink the ways in which we are using our resources. It calls on us to get creative with our material lives and innovative in the ways in which we think about abundance and mutual prosperity. Conjunct the game-changer of the cosmos, Uranus, and square the planet of form and structure, Saturn, this New Moon helps us to deepen our understanding of which structures can support the changes we are personally and collectively facing, and which are so outdated they have to be completely rethought. Taurus is a slow and steady sign, and the restructuring we are considering making at this moment needs to be integrated a little at a time, in ways that feel sustainable and supportive long-term.
The Full Moon in Scorpio arrives on May 7, unearthing challenging feelings, life circumstances, and losses for us to confront. Scorpio lives on the more intense side of life, helping us shed old skin, with the promise that we will eventually benefit from the healthy glow of its exfoliation process.
On May 12, Venus stations retrograde. One of the most important pieces of 2020’s astrology, Venus retrogrades through the same part of the sky and our charts every eight years. That means that this Venus retrograde picks up on a relationship theme that we experienced back in 2012. Circling around again, we are given the opportunity to more consciously connect with a certain part of our lives and ourselves. In Gemini, a sign known for its need to exchange data, but not necessarily emotion, this Venus retrograde is on the cooler side of things. During a time of mass social distancing, every communication device that we have becomes an urgent portal of connection. With Venus in Gemini from early April to early August, we know that these themes pervade this part of the year no matter the situation we face. In this workshop, there will be a special ritual to make the most of the beginning of Venus retrograde.
