An eventful weekend is upon us. The new moon in Taurus tomorrow is actually an eclipse, and shortly after the sun and the moon align, Venus conjoins Jupiter in Pisces.
On one hand, it can be a terribly decadent day where we find ourselves feeding our worst impulses. When Venus and Jupiter meet, we often want to “take the easy way out.” On the other hand, a new moon in Taurus can make us determined to take a new path altogether in pursuit of a goal. It can be the one time of the month where typical Taurean complacency gives way to the tenacity that sometimes defines the sign.
I’m going to try to take advantage of this astrological event by trying to focus on what I have. As I’ve mentioned a million times before on this blog, my dissatisfaction with my job has had me believing that the grass is greener on the other side of the hill. That may be true, but the change of season has actually made many things in my life easier to handle, including my job. Venus moves into my sixth house in just a few hours from now, meaning that it will meet Jupiter in the part of my chart associated with my day-to-day routine. Perhaps I’ll feel differently about my current career and my job prospects once these planets line up.
Whatever happens, I’m willing to give my employer another chance. The new moon is in my seventh house, so it’s a good time for me to resolve to improve my relationships with the people that I believe have been holding me back. I don’t believe that I’ve had poor relations with anyone at work. However, I have had a difficult time hiding my disapproval when decisions that affect my upward mobility in the organization are postponed. My patience has been tested far too many times over the past several months.
What’s interesting is that my boss has actually been advocating for me to take on a new role and earn more money. When she’s back next week after a brief vacation, the sun will make it’s annual conjunction with Uranus in my eighth house of Karma. Perhaps there are cosmic rewards waiting for me on the other side of this weekend.
