Mercury just joined Venus and Uranus in Taurus this morning, and later today the sun also moves into the sign.
This is already my favorite time of year, and having a bunch of planets in Taurus is only going to make things better for me. I believe I’m at my best when either Taurus or Virgo are the most well-populated signs of the zodiac. What’s interesting to me is that I have very vivid memories of the big Taurus stellium of early May, 2000. It was a pivotal time in my life for many reasons, but mostly because I felt good about everything. A couple years before that I felt as if nothing was ever going to go my way again, and my current circumstances seem to mirror that era of my life in more ways than I can count.
The one thing that I am missing, though, is a creative project. In 2000, I had a book that I had written being prepared for publication. Right now, I can barely convince myself to sit in front of this computer for more than an hour or two. Maybe having a few planets transiting my solar fifth house of creativity will change that. Perhaps having Venus, Mercury and the sun conjoining Uranus over the next couple of weeks will result in a sudden flash of inspiration. I could use a cosmic kick in the ass, especially while I’m stuck at home again.
Even if that doesn’t happen, I can’t complain. I’ve got a steady income even though the gym where I work is closed. I’ve been losing weight and feeling good about my body again for the last few weeks. I had my first vaccination against COVID-19 last week, hot on the heels of a long overdue trip to my doctor who delivered me nothing but good news. Comparing this time of year with the anxiety I felt last year a month into the lockdowns, I can’t barely believe how much better I feel about everything.
So, I’m just going to try to enjoy it while it lasts. And maybe — just maybe — I’ll be able to parlay these good feelings into something productive. I need to remember that after these planets leave my solar fifth house, that they enter my solar sixth house: another place where I feel more comfortable in my own skin, and a place where I tend to make time for everything I need to do, including writing things I might eventually sell.
C’mon, universe! Show me the way . . .
