The Moon continues its journey through Taurus, reminding us to reconnect to our support systems and the physical practices that nourish pleasure and rest. From my view, this lunation cycle has been inviting us to move from shame to pleasure, from the deep feelings that have been hidden toward the indulgent embodiment of feeling good. What has been coming up for you around these themes over the last two weeks? Are there desires that you’re still hiding or avoiding? Are there ways of feeling good that you don’t yet feel you can ask for or claim as your own? Today is an important moment in Mercury’s retrograde cycle. Mercury makes a conjunction with the Sun, what traditional astrologers called cazimi or in the heart of the Sun. This is an opportunity for clarity in the midst of whatever this retrograde has been reviewing and uncovering. Pay attention to the new information that shows up, the messages you receive, the fresh insights or perspectives that come into focus. Mercury won’t station direct until November 20 and won’t clear the shadow of the retrograde until December. All has not yet been revealed, but today’s cazimi may bring some crucial details into focus or show where important pieces are falling into place.
