This evening we will have a full moon in intense Scorpio. It is opposing the sun in Taurus- full moons always oppose the sun. Also today Venus, planet of values and relationships is in Taurus conjunct Uranus planet of sudden change. This is when things come to light and we can see what is really there. We may also need to make changes, and a bit of courage always helps with this when we have to do new things which feel scary. I’m building up for my talk at the astrological association conference. It is a month today, it is certainly exciting but a bit scary too, I speak in public quite regularly but it is the first time I have spoken at an astrology conference! The themes of my talk are very Taurus and Scorpio about the beautiful queen of heaven and fertility who goes down into the underworld to meet her dark sister.

Today, Mars planet of energy, enthusiasm and action moves from quick witted airy Gemini into sensitive moody Cancer. This is quite a shift, if things have been rather frantic of late, they should slow down a bit. However, do tread carefully as people (especially water signs) could be feeling quite sensitive and easily offended. A little bit of patience helps the world go round! I will have to remember that when I am trying to persuade my son to get to bed!
I found this crab on the beach last year and just had to take a photo! The symbol for Cancer is the crab; sensitive inside a hard shell.

Today Venus , planet of love and beauty moves into its own sign of Taurus. This is a very sensual placement so it is great time to relax and enjoy the good things in life, just watch out for overindulging on the cake front.
Venus joins the sun, Mercury and Uranus in Taurus. This is what astrologers call ‘Taurus season’ and at the risk of sounding like my mother, everything is so beautiful now, it is such a lovely time of year, so green and luxurious.
We went to the garden centre yesterday and they had a wonderful tunnel of wisteria which smelt so sweet in the spring sunshine.
I’m aiming to get into my allotment to day to try and tame all those enthusiastic weeds. Yesterday marked the start of a new growing season for our poly tunnel as I put the tomato plants into their new home, bring on the summer!

Yes! I got to see the moon last night, it was sailing high in Leo as I went to shut my chickens up in the chilly evening. We were extravagant last night and my husband lit a fire in May, it was very cosy. The rain has cleared now but it is quite cloudy in the West, so I might be lucky and get another glimpse of the moon which will be at first quarter early tomorrow morning. It will continue waxing all next week and be full next Saturday the 18th of May.

Friday 10th May
We are having a lot of rain and grey skies recently here in Norfolk, and whilst this is good for our gardens, it rather restricts any sky watching activities! The moon is waxing but I haven’t seen it yet this lunation. Judging by the forecast I may have to wait a couple more days. The moon is currently in its own sign of Cancer which is home-loving, caring and sensitive. This afternoon it moves into creative, confident Leo. If the weather does clear at all then it will be visible all evening until 1.30am tomorrow morning as a waxing crescent. The time of the waxing moon is one of expansion and enthusiasm.

Today Mercury planet of communication is next to – conjunct Uranus planet of sudden changes in surprises. They are in the sign of determined, creative Taurus. Mercury moves quickly so this aspect will last until Saturday, at this time expect things plans to change and things to come to light. Mercury and Uranus are both planets associated with ideas so you may have bright ideas and new ways of thinking. As they are in practical Taurus you may find find alternative solutions to practical problems. However, things may take longer than you would like them to, try not to rush, just let things evolve, Taurus is not a hurrier.

Good morning. What a difference a day makes, it’s lovely out there. Today I am working on my Inanna talk as the date is getting closer. It is on Saturday 15th June at the Astrological Association’s Conference at Wyboston Lakes in Bedfordshire, my home county. The conference theme this year is Turning Lead into Gold. My talk is Inanna and Ereshkigal, Into The Great Below. closerhttps://www.astrologicalassociation.com/pages/conference/2019/index.php
This evening, at 19.25 BST Mercury, fast moving planet of communication moves from energetic Aries into steady, patient Taurus. If things have felt a bit hectic and rushed recently, then this shift should help you to slow down and smell the bluebells. Taurus is a sensual sign, so it is good time to relax and appreciate this beautiful time of year.

Late tonight we have a new moon in Taurus. This marks the beginning of a new phase.
I must admit over the last couple of weeks or so, I have not been writing as often as I normally do. So this month I hope to use some Taurean determination and focus to write every day. Do you have any plans for this Taurus new moon?
