The Moon sets the emotional tone as it transits through the Zodiac signs. It changes signs every 2 1/2 days. You can work with this rhythm to "go with the flow" of the Moon. You can use it to know the general feeling tone to expect.

Strength and Sensuality

The Moon is exalted in Taurus, and that means its an easy-going fit. The Taurus lunar mood is mellow, calm and low-to-the-ground. You can go barefoot, languish in the Sun, draw out the enjoyment of a particularly tasty meal.

It's easier to feel the weight of who you are, on the Earth, rather than just being "in your head." It's great for tending to practical matters, since your two hands are ready to dig in.

Being at Home in the Body

When the Moon is in Taurus, it's easier to sink into the moment, be in the body, and enjoy delights of the five senses. This earth sign brings out our capacity to revel in earthly life! Some languid intimacy in a cozy atmosphere sounds good! Taurus is the slow mover of the Zodiac, and everything is savored thoroughly. That might mean dancing, and really feeling the groove of the music. It's also great for relaxing deeply, like taking an afternoon siesta.

Slow and Steady Steps

The grounded nature of Taurus allows us to be focused on one thing. It's a fixed sign, that inspires us to go into something fully, to flesh it out. The Taurus energy helps you discover your natural talent. And you might find it easier to practice your craft or hobby.

You can get in the zone of work, and take pleasure in making real progress. It's an excellent time to be in the studio or with your musical instrument. You can earth your dreams in real ways.
