Daily Horoscopes are written according to where the Moon is located.
For that reason you will see the Moon information 1st paragraph (below),
the 2nd paragraph is the house that affects your Sign, and the 3rd paragraph is
the horoscope itself based on the information of the 1st and 2nd paragraph.

THE MOON IS IN TAURUS TODAY! Keywords: money, practical, stability, music, possessions, self-worth, morals, values, romance, slow to decide

The Moon in Taurus is moving through your 1st house of identity and how other's see you. This house also rules the personality, your attitude, how you see the world, how you look, appearances, your worldly outlook, and self-awareness and how you respond. It includes the self, ego, anima, projected image, expression of inner motivation, soul purpose, initial approach to life and your aura. Take special note that this first house rules your soul's purpose and your inner motivation.

I think we all know by now that my Daily Horoscopes have a strong teaching influence. So if you are coming to this website to get the simple 4 line horoscope of 'just tell me what my day is like' then I'm probably not your gal. Having said that, I cannot resist the teaching moment that comes with today's Taurus Moon that follows the New Moon in Aries that we just experienced yesterday and that we are still 'under the influence' of for the next 2 weeks.

If you read the above 2nd paragraph you will see that this fixed Taurus Moon influences your 1st house of the self, personality, appearance and how others see you. This is where these Taurus tendencies will show up for you where you may become stubborn and hard-headed. Remember dear Taurus, all signs have a dual nature and your dual nature is the flirty, eyelash batting, melodious cow or the snotty faced, steam blowing stubborn bull. Since this 1st house is all about how you see the world and how the world sees you, then you best put on your eyelash batting, romantic, flirty face and not the snotty face, steaming blowing with snot running into your mouth face. eeeeek! Hey, I'm just trying to make a point! LOL Taurus is naturally ruled by romantic and Lovely Venus. Own the romance today!

As a fast moving mercurial Gemini, you can only imagine how tickled I am when this Taurus Moon arrives (insert a huge dose of sarcasm here). But seriously folks, the more you understand lunar influences, the more you will understand how it affects you and then you can handle and channel it easier. Just think about the melodious cow or placid bull standing in the pasture. They are very slow moving animals and will only stampede when they are startled, poked or prodded into action. Do you really want to poked with a stick? Why wait until you are poked or prodded with a stick to take action? Under this Taurus Moon, there is really no need to wait until you are spooked into action. Why have fear be a motivating factor to move from the place you have been standing in for so long? Folks, you must remember that we are still 'under the influence' of the New Moon in Aries that took place yesterday. New Moons have an 'orb of influence' for right at about 2 weeks. Some of you may be standing in a fearful space because you didn't take action yesterday during the New Moon and may feel a spook of some sort coming on. Well hell, whatever it takes. Riiiiiight?

So click back to yesterday and see how that New Moon in Aries affected you and get your stampede on because you want to, not because you were spooked into action. Waiting until you are spooked is too hard. Why make that an option? Why make things so hard? But then again, this Taurus Moon is a fixed sign, can certainly be hard-headed or bull-headed. If you refuse to budge, then this can easily be seen as a control issue. OUCHY! Well if you want to control something, then control THAT!

While you are learning more about astrology and the way these signs affect your personal chart, make certain that you are not making it so hard on yourself that you can't move forward. Make is easy on yourself by looking at the basic tendency of the sign involved. Wherever Taurus shows up in your Natal Chart is where you will have this Taurus tendency. We ALL have each sign in our chart and there is no exception. If you don't see Taurus on a house cusp, then it falls between two house cusps and it can be tough to see it, especially if you don't have any planets in Taurus. Still, the influence is there. And speaking of influence, the reason why I use the phrase, "under the influence" is because we all know what its like to be 'under the influence' of drugs, alcohol, Rx drugs, Love, an orgasm, etc., and planetary energy is the exact same way. It also has a strong 'orb of influence,' which means over a certain period of time. So when I use the word 'influence' then you can take that to the bank and cash it because I mean 'influence' as strongly as if you were taking a pain pill, having a shot of whiskey or experiencing an orgasm. LOLOL . . hey, whatever it takes to make my point. Don't tell me you can't feel it!
