This week's astrology forecast (for Lounge Members there is a video), is about the New Moon, but also about Uranus in Taurus, which is conjunct the New Moon.
As you may know, Taurus is about security, comfort, sameness, staying put, holding your ground, financial stability. Uranus is about change with a capital "C". It is about flexibility and moving boldly into new frontiers. The Sun (an element of a New Moon) is about your ego and its desire to keep you where you are, at all costs.

It is showing you the many things you have learned (and where you yet have more learning to do). It is showing you your strengths (and where you could strengthen further still).
Look at your life as a tapestry that is rich and complex and beautiful, even if it is worn or frayed around the edges. Even if the colors bleed into one another here and there. The imperfection is the mark of a great handmade textile. The imperfection is what makes it...
