February 25 the conjunction between Mercury and Neptune can make wishes come true. Put in the work, reap the rewards. Your best course of action is to breathe, wait, and relax.
Things will become clear toward the new moon. Regrouping can put you on more sure footing, and reacting based on emotion may not be the savviest move. In other words, organize what needs to be done so that you get things done quickly and effectively with a minimum amount of stress, effort and aggravation.
Then you can sit back and enjoy the fruits of your labours. The Taurus Moon has an ally: asteroid Vesta , who is all about creating a comforting space where you can warm yourself and unwind from the stresses of the day — even doubly so when she is in pleasure-seeking Taurus.
Her contribution is to help you get centered and grounded, so you can stand solidly in your power. On the other side of the chart is Mercury retrograde who is tightly conjunct the Sun and opposite the Moon. Thinking seems to work better when it takes a big breath and dives deep, taking its time to explore what it finds "down there" in the obscure corners of the mind. This may require a direct self-honesty, but this energy's best potential is about multifaceted or reflective perceptions, rather than simple ideas.
Taurus's answer is to nourish the senses with soothing sights, tastes, touch, smells and sounds. Your mind tends to take its cue about your environment from your body. You've got this. With the Full Moon adding her glow to Taurus' agenda, the goal is not just contentment but also to feel safe, secure, cared for and cared about. Even if you've "got this" it is even more reassuring to know you're not alone; that someone else has "got you" if you stumble or fall.
In short, this Taurus Full Moon is in search of the kind of nest where we can surround ourselves with a sense of love, caring, protection, order and stability. However, as much as Taurus prefers simplicity, order and something snuggly, the best solution to this quest will likely take us beyond the straightforward and very possibly outside our comfort zone.
Another thing that makes this Quest for the Nest a bit complex is an aspect pattern called a Cradle. Saturn and Pluto are connected to Neptune through another sextile aspect. The Cradle energy is loaded with sextiles and trines, which are typically seen as the "good" aspects. Lots of cooperation and creativity can come out of the combination of the planets involved. In fact, the apex planets the ones with the sextiles, not the ones in the opposition often provide a creative outlet for the stress and conflict of the opposition. With 2 apexes, the Cradle offers two channels through which you can discover fresh inspiration and motivation And that's the trick with a Cradle configuration — it can bring a new dimension of insight and perspective, or it can distract you from the work that must be done to deal constructively with the opposition.
And it's not always easy to tell which is which. Change will force you to step off the path, to venture from the nest, to close your eyes and dive right in, knowing that the greatest opportunities in life are found in the sink or swim, do or die moments. In this case, the larger-than-life planetary dynamics that are gifting you with this added dimension are not exactly innocuous fluffy energies, but are forces to be reckoned with.
Neptune can inspire with hope, vision, trust and faith Saturn and Pluto can provide reassurance and support through realism, honesty, clarity and authenticity And whatever you do with their combined energy, it's gonna get real. Really real.

So you'd better be prepared for whatever results or consequences come out of it. That's where the stress and tension are. Here is the need for a reassuring life raft Taurus in response to the undertow of power and passion that may feel like they're trying to pull you under Scorpio. If you have developed the skill of thriving in the depths of the Scorpio Shadow, that Taurus life raft is meant to remind you that life must also have pleasure, contentment and satisfaction on the surface, not just learning how to scry into the darkness of the deep below.
But if you're feeling a bit swamped by the heavy energies that abound these days, you may feel the need for that Moon-Vesta life raft to be a cozy nest, not just a technical solution that keeps you from getting lost in Scorpionic waters. So, here's the trick with this particular Cradle.
The world today is a heavy place to live. So much change. So much heavy, larger-than-life dynamics rising to the surface from the Collective unconscious. Humanity is undergoing a period of transformation and evolution that is frightening, thrilling or just overwhelming, depending on your perspective. What it's not is boring, mundane, easy or simple. And with energies this deep coming up to be reckoned with, it's not going to resolve itself quickly. So: this Cradle is a quest to find safety in an atmosphere of chaos.
Ease in an environment of struggle. Satisfaction and tranquility within a state of constant flux. A calm centre within a hurricane of transition and transformation. In other words, these transpersonal planetary energies Neptune and Saturn-Pluto that counterbalance the stress of the opposition are best used not as distractions or escape mechanisms, but as a challenge to find peace within conflict and harmony within uncertainty. There is a saying in Tibetan, 'Tragedy should be utilized as a source of strength. The planetary ruler of Taurus, Venus, is striding through Sagittarius.
The idea of a quest of any kind appeals to her, especially if it involves exploring some kind of uplifting adventure or fresh perspective on life. And she loves the idea of a quest for a nest, as long as it means she can still go galivanting off to exotic places and pursuits, and then return home in between excursions to a comfy, cozy bed where she will wake refreshed and ready for a new adventure.
In fact, she is channelling Jupiter who was in that same degree last January and stationed very close to it last August. Jupiter even made its first square to Neptune within about a degree of where Venus is at the time of the Full Moon. Jupiter square Neptune has brought some struggles this year around trying to find a healthy bridge between faith and fantasy, hope versus illusion, knowledge versus intuition, and shame versus regret.
So, last January and August, Jupiter's quest for understanding about life was met with cosmic questions about what was real, what was wishful projection, and what was truly a "higher" perspective. What you hold dear and believe in—is that a reliable Truth or is it based on how you want things to be?
Do you see a path of redemption for all that is wrong with yourself and the world, or must you continue to tiptoe through the minefield and deal with each moment as it comes? With Venus now going through where Jupiter was when it began its square to Neptune, this could bring up some similar questions and doubt, as well as reactivating your search for answers through a sense of faith in the Universe. Since we're dealing with Venus now instead of Jupiter, it might be a time when you feel the need to seek out like-minded people who can debate and discuss these concepts with you.
Or, it might cast some shadow on a close relationship, if you feel that someone close to you isn't investing as much in your connection as you would like. Likewise, you might find you're questioning how much value you're getting out of your possessions or how you're spending your hard-earned cash. Or, you might be seeking better ways to find a satisfying sense of pleasure and satisfaction in things, people or parts of your life that normally bring you joy.
Sometimes a journey is not about the traveler.
It is not about a destination. It is about the bringing together of worlds. It is about lighting a path. There's one other Venus factor that adds some more intrigue and mystery to this already-enigmatic energy. Your contribution of any amount is warmly appreciated.
