1st Quarter Taurus “Woodcutter’s Moon” at 1 degree on January 20, 2021, at 1:01 PM PST/2:01 PM MST/3:01 PM CST/4:01 PM EST
The 1st Quarter Taurus Moon arrives with Fixed Square “Big Bang” power on January 20th, 2021. The waxing Moon brings power to the Taurus stellium of Mars (exact conjunction) to Uranus and Black Moon Lilith. This energy goes head to head with the Aquarius Sun meeting up with Saturn and Jupiter. Mercury has already wandered through this minefield on January 9th. Look back to this start date to feel into the energies that are happening now.
In this Corner: TAURUS
This energy is an intensified Las Vegas-style Heavy-weight boxing match. Mars and Uranus join forces at 6 degrees. The waxing Moon and the Black Moon circle this power with the 1st and 10th degrees of Taurus. The Black Moon leads you deeper into your internal place of security. From this more empowered place, will you enact a higher level of stewardship? When you care for yourself, others, and the Earth, you become a force to be reckoned with. Face your fears of lack and insecurity this week – for any belief you have in limitations is a lie. Mars and Uranus give you the strength to look at yourself honestly. Honest self-realization is what awakens your true potential. Do not be afraid to look in your own mirror. This is where you will be the most powerful. The Moon helps you find your reflection and is the door to open for inner transformation. Taking action within yourself by following these directives will serve you in momentous ways throughout 2021.
In this Corner: AQUARIUS
The Sun, Saturn, Jupiter, and Mercury (by sign) bring expansive, ancient energy to dislodge your comfort zone and get you into action. Mercury serves as the “Dove of Peace” bearing the message that if you have doubt, you shall live in doubt. But if you have faith, your life will be greater. Jupiter redirects your attention towards those who you greatly admire. Look to the qualities that they have and realize that those same qualities exist in you. Jupiter will help you expand those qualities, for you are here to Self-realize. Saturn opens your awareness that you possess great healing abilities beyond your imagination. Saturn’s directive is to practice your abilities to be of greater service to others. When you choose this action in your life, your life will be spectacular!
Saving Grace: Neptune & Venus
The saving grace frequency emanates from the Nodal Wave square to Neptune and Venus in a Capricorn Earth Trine to the Taurus stellium. Neptune is joined exact conjunction with Ceres, the largest asteroid who is known as the “Great Mother”. Neptune is the higher octave of Venus. Venus is the power of our ability to give and receive Love. No matter what is happening in the Collective, Love is the only answer. The planets are steering you towards the only Love a mother could have. The best way through this energy is to see all the characters – whether friend or foe – through the eyes of Mother’s Love.
1st Quarter Waxing Moon Dynamics: Challenges ~ Decisions ~ Action
“I feel AIR and EARTH to CHANGE old patterns to breakthrough my obstacles this week!”
First Quarter Moon energetics are about busting through challenges, making clear and powerful decisions, and taking ACTION! Adversity becomes your friend to break through obstacles, barriers, and blocks. The waxing Taurus Moon forms a square, or 90-degree angle, to the Aquarius Sun. This waxing square builds FIXED universal Qi to increase your power. You are invited to breakthrough old subconscious patterns in the Inner Circle. Join us!
The 1st Quarter “Woodcutter’s Moon” brings forth the separation of humanity from the living consciousness of Nature. In order for humans to use the resources found in Nature, there must be a disconnection from the sentient consciousness of Nature. The Woodcutter has to divorce himself from Nature in order to have the things necessary for survival: shelter, heat, and money. This 1st Quarter Taurus Moon’s energy invites you to see where you are cut off from the consciousness of the Earth in order to survive and fend off poverty. Cure this space within by becoming more aware and then giving thanks for all the resources you are given freely from Mother Earth.
*This is a “poverty-conscious” Moon that sees and feels what hidden messages lay deeply buried in your Psyche. Hint: look to your Taurus-ruled House for your answers. Get your Natal Oracle or join us in the Lunar Ladies Club for personalized support.
3rd Lunar Mansion: “The Palace”
The Woodcutter’s Moon passes through the 3rd Lunar Mansion. This cosmic mansion is guarded by Venus and Jupiter. Abundance and good fortune are found in the 3rd Lunar Mansion. Taurus’ fertile power grows things through Gratitude. Your dreams can become reality within “The Palace” when you stretch beyond prior limitations and allow more into your life. You may be tempted with over-indulgence, so keep your feet on the ground and know when you are full. Ask yourself, “What truly feeds my Soul?” Your answers will be what sustains. Momentary pleasures can come at a cost to truly fulfilling your earthly needs. This is the week to learn good boundaries and come into alignment with Nature. The Palace of the 3rd Lunar Mansion shows you what truly nurtures your Soul while tempting you with momentary pleasures. Uranus says, “Know the difference.”
Human Design Gateway #3: “Ordering”
The Woodcutter’s Moon passes through the initiation gateway of “Ordering”. This gateway is about transformation. Under this power, you are having your old genetic information in your DNA reordered to get rid of old debris. The 3rd Gateway wants new genetic material to be ordered into a greater you. Access this energy by allowing what is vital to your life. What needs to change in your life? What do you need for this change to occur? Whatever that it is, go for it this week!
Taurus Moon vs. Aquarius Sun

The 1 degree Taurus Moon moves you through resistance: POWER
“An electrical storm.”
Only if we accept inner transformation, will we transform outer situations.
The Taurus 1st Quarter Moon brings the power of Lightning into your Taurus ruled House in your Natal Chart. Lightning ~ remember Uranus is with the Moon now! ~ unleashes all kinds of energy. Things can come as an emotional head or breaking point. Become your own emotional “Eye of the Storm” and be determined to not react. If you feel like you have no control, keep your calm, cool Center. This inner power weakens the energy and dissipates it until you can regain control. By tuning into the nature of the electrical storm you can reconnect with the forces that birthed you. Society in general fears your individuality and normalizes behavior in order to control and suppress it. This normalization builds up great tensions and distorts the true inner Self. A raging electrical storm clears the air and frees individuality. When you realign with your authentic being, you connect with the present and the future to let your core values be clearly expressed.

The 1 degree Aquarius Sun moves through resistance: IDEALIZATION
“An unexpected thunderstorm.”
With optimism and confidence, setbacks will always further our ends.
The Aquarius Sun shines a light into your inner Knowing that now is the time to have powerful faith in the goodness of life. As the lightning appears first, the sound of thunder comes second to complete the message. In life, $hit happens. It is not so much in what happens as in how you deal with it. When life throws you a curveball, be alert to it rather than fall apart. Ask yourself, “What is this trying to teach me?” Your power is in your curiosity and not in your overwhelm. It is much better to recognize the positive aspect of what is happening. Seek out what you can harvest from this experience. With an optimistic mind, you can create opportunity out of disaster, setbacks, and even catastrophe, to grow and prosper. At an advanced level of understanding, all control is an illusion anyway. The mystery of life is accessed through surrender. The thunderstorm symbol carries unpredictability and awesome power. It is up to you to discover how to play with it!
