3rd Quarter Taurus “Merchant’s Moon” at 8 degrees on July 31, 2021, at 6:16 AM PDT/9:16 AM EDT. Lunar week: 07/31 – 08/-7/2021. Next New Moon on 08/08/2021
The Taurus 3rd Quarter Moon brings the Cancer lunar cycle to an end. The waning Moon draws you inward to release where you feel blocked around giving and receiving joy. The “Spirit of Christmas” is already shining its emotional energy highlighting the upcoming Venus Retrograde on 12/19/21. There is a quadruple “8” vibration happening between the Moon, Sun, and Nodal Wave indicating that the energy of infinity is in full operation mode.
The Moon is in YOD formation to the South Node in Sagittarius at 8 degrees. Juno, the Goddess of Divine Union, is retrograde conjunct the South Node. Reflect back to the theme of the Cancer New Moon – “A priest performing a marriage ceremony”. The presence of Juno indicates that an inner sacred marriage is being requested of you by the Universe. At this infinity degree, the wisdom teaching is “Education draws out the mature awareness that to serve another is to serve ourselves.” It is time for you to realize that what you do at any point in time to another, you do to yourself.
The Leo Sun shines a light on the need to feel appreciated and reflect upon what truly brings you joy in your life. Your life is designed as a work of art. Leo says make your life a work of your heart! At this infinity degree, the Sun shares that your truest art is to create a beautiful character. Take this week to reflect on what you can develop within your character that will enhance your inner beauty in the world.
Venus, the ruler of Taurus, emanates ascended mastery as you position herself at 11 degrees Virgo. Keeping in perfect synergy with the Cancer lunation theme of marriage, the Sabian Symbol is “A bride with her veil snatched away”. Venus is gifting you this wisdom teaching: “A person is measured by when they push forward and when they back away.” When you desire to interact with another, you set into motion an engagement of energetic exchange. Venus energy can attract and repel. Develop sensitivity in how you interact with others. What needs to shift, change, and grow? You will be highly rewarded by life with elegance and abundant joy as you make this choice!

The 8 degree Taurus Moon releases and celebrates: APPLICATION
“A Christmas Tree Decorated.”
The spiritual ideal of reciprocity is applied through ritualizing the celebration of giving
The 3rd Quarter Taurus Moon brings the spirit of giving and abundance found in the material world. The Leo Sun’s light reminds you that you can be this spirit of Joy and goodwill. The Christmas Tree energy represents the collective spiritual wisdom that flows throughout the world. It comes to life via the joy of bringing happiness in the form of gifts to one another. Take the expanded opportunities to share what you have and give the gift of your joy. The act of giving releases emotional distortions and blockages in your heart chakra. Give to your community in some profound way as if the spirit of Christmas is happening now. Everything can be sacred. Rejoice and be prosperous. The Law of Reciprocity is here for you to play with. Giving is a spiritual practice that bridges the worlds of the seen and unseen. Be the spirit of Christmas now!
