Taurus (April 20th to May 21st)

The great thing about new moons in Fire signs is that they help clean up the emo-tional flotsam that’s floating about in your heart or mind after some shipwreck of an event or relationship. This may be one of the stages of grief where you’ve now faced what’s happened and gearing up to change things. What may be frustrating for you at times (or others around you) is the “gearing up” part. You represent the natural process of life ripening in its own sweet time.  But you do have to muster the will and energy to seize when things are ripe.  And you have that wisdom and you’re going to have to trust your timetable. Not someone else’s. This weekend you can start seizing small ripened moments with re-arranging things or taking some small action to move on from a situation that you now know is untenable and unsustain-able.
