HELLO, TAURUS!

Welcome to your ★ COSMIC WEATHER REPORT ★ for October, 2020.

MARS is still retrograde for the whole month, in your solar 12th House of Spirituality, Endings, Hidden Things.

Mars, continious its retrograde motion, affecting your energy, vitality, temper and your alertness in general. Mabilis na mapagod, mabilis pa ma-pikon. Take extra care, dear Taurus! You may be pressed for movement, but now is the time to slow down! (Click here to review your 2020 Mars Retrograde walkthrough.)

On the 2nd, a FULL MOON happens too, in your solar 12th House of Spirituality, Endings, Hidden Things

Full Moons help us process endings, so beginnings can occur. This month’s full Moon is conjunct the asteroid/comet Chiron, known to astrology as the “wounded healer”. This day can be intense kaya it’s best to prepare. May element of hapdi ito, somehow, showing feelings na akala natin ok na, hindi pa pala. Yung mga insecurities, naglalabasan. This is a very good time to identify and focus on things that you need to let go of – mga hinanakit, failures, past loves, and transgressions that need your forgiveness. Ano ba ang excess baggage na pagod ka na bitbitin? Take the time, reflect and write it down. Once identified, it’s time to slowly release them. Maybe tear the list after, as a full moon ritual. The energy for moving on is very strong, dear Taurus, so seize the moment!

on the 3rd, VENUS enters your solar 5th House of Creativity, Romance, Fun, Pleasure, and Children. 

Venus here is a much needed sweet spot for the month. The 5th house represents things that make us happy, like creative things hobbies, small moments that make us laugh, ice cream, falling in love, music, and kilig moments. With Venus here, we are encouraged to go after what gives us pleasure, and what makes us feel happy and alive. The general feel is quiet and introspection, kaya naman revisiting your hobbies or crafts may prove to be a lifesaver during this mood of isolation. 

This is also the house of children kaya naman if you have kids, magaan ang relationship mo with them ngayon. Extra lambing and affectionate ka, and romantic, kaya happy din si partner! Kung walang partner, chat-chat ka muna, kasi magaan and likeable ang energy mo ngayon, basta light -light lang muna. Download ka na ng dating app!

From the 6th-11th, a retrograde MARS (energy, action) squares PLUTO (constriction, limitation), for the 2nd of 3 passes.

Expect to feel intense tension and friction between your solar 12th House (Rest, reflection, isolation) and your solar 9th House (long distance exploration, higher learning). The energy is volatile kaya actively focus on keeping safe! This is not the time to explore and push your boundaries.  Also, remember that haste makes waste, so be careful and deliberate in travel plans. Parang sasabog ang pakiramdam ngayon sa dami ng pinigil na emotion, so if possible, taper your temper and avoid confrontations for now, especially with foreigners or anyone foreign based.

On the 14th, MERCURY turns RETROGRADE in your solar 7th House of One-on-one interaction, Relationships, and Committed Partnerships.

With Mercury Retrograde, communication breakdown is the common theme. Naku, mag iinarte ang mga printer and other gadgets for communicating, kaya be extra patient. Kung may important messages, twice i-send. Hassle din mag travel ngayon. Iwas na muna, kung hindi naman essential. After all, asa gitna pa tayo ng pandemic.

Mercury turns retrograde in your relationship sector, so expect little confusions or disagreements regarding your closest partnerships (business, personal). Pwede kayo ngayon magka-iritahan, sensitive ka kasi ngayon sa mga salita and thoughts ng partner mo, more than usual. May tendency manumbat ngayon, after all, Mars is retrograde too so madali mag flare up ang mga usapan. However, madami kang gusto sabihin ngayon, whether it be worries na hirap kang i-voice out, or maybe those that you do verbalize pero tablado. Pwede naman subukan, pero the mood may be too emotional. If possible, 3 weeks after nalang mag discuss, pagkatapos nalang ng retrograde.

On the 16th, a NEW MOON happens in your solar 6th House of Daily Routines, Health, and Service.

New Moons are times of the month when we plant intentions, consciously or not, so its best to be mindful, para the intentions we set are deliberate. This particular New Moon is focused on your daily routines, service and health. However, it is opposite a retrograding Mars, kaya the energy may feel a bit volatile, hostile, even. Are there habits or vices that you need to eliminate, kaya lang, kulang sa will power? You may start healthy resolutions now, but important na gradual lang ha, wag pabigla-bigla. Lalo na if biglaang exercise. Maaari din na you feel the need to be more helpful, and give back to the community. A lot of people need help now, so this is encouraged. Meditate on what you want to accomplish during this time, and surely, the Universe will be listening to you, guiding you into manifestation.

On the 20th, a retrograde MERCURY passes opposite URANUS, the planet of surprises.

This is a good day for troubleshooting, kasi flashes of brilliance, and solutions that are out of the box may appear now, out of the blue. However, unexpected information from the past, either information missing  or thought to be hidden, may suddenly resurface. Mahirap magpigil ng bibig ngayon, kaya be extra careful about your conversations. You may say things that are inappropriate, causing awkwardness, at the very least. Remember too that Mars is retrograde, so conflict can escalate quickly. Kung walang magandang sasabihin, quiet na muna, for now lang naman. Remember, less talk, less mistake! 

On the 23rd, the SUN enters your solar 7th House of One-on-one interaction, Relationships, and Committed Partnerships.

Your main focus now shifts towards your committed relationships, and what they can bring to you. You may feel like your relationships are under a magnifying glass, and with Mars and Mercury both retrograde, this may be a tricky time in terms of partnerships and relationships. Patience is very much needed now, more than ever.

If you are single, this transit brings feelings of wanting to partner-up, and a bit of unease, kasi gusto mo nang makakasama during this time. Mahirap pala ma quarantine ng mag-isa! No man is an island after all! Maybe now is the time to do something about it! Pero baby steps lang, wag pabigla-bigla!

On the 31st, a FULL MOON happens in YOUR sign, directly affecting your solar 1st House of SELF and Physical Body.

This month closes with a blue Moon, a second Full Moon, this time in YOUR sign, dear Taurus! Now is a great time to fine tune the self, to release and let go of whatever it is that is holding you back, this time in terms of your physical body, and how you present yourself to the world. When you see yourself in the mirror, masaya ka ba? Kung hindi, bakit? Make a list of everything about yourself that you are unhappy about, so you know exactly what you need to release! Take the time to troubleshoot, so you can take advantage of this energy!

GOOD LUCK, TAURUS! SEE YOU NEXT MONTH!
