Taurus Moon inconjunct Ceres Rx in Sagittarius (12 deg)
Taurus Moon inconjunct Pallas Rx in Libra (13 deg)
The Taurus Moon forms a Yod to Ceres and Pallas. The Moon makes an inconjunct (aspect of incompatibility) to Ceres: a disconnect between expansive (Sagittarius) nurturing (Ceres) and fixed habits (Taurus). The Moon also makes an inconjunct to Pallas: a disconnect between the same fixed habits and social (Libra ) strategies (Pallas).
Pallas and Ceres Rx are connected with a supportive sextile, so light, balanced strategies and the nurturing of new areas connect in an easy way. Both are retrograde, so you’re revisiting this issue and perhaps discovering new directions to take a relationship.
But the barrier is fixed habits; you may get tripped up by fears of moving forward or hesitation to compromise. The focal point (the Taurus Moon) is also where the energy of the Yod must be directed - the growth of relationship strategies must be focused in a way that adds to your security.
The Yod is the most frustrating configuration, because the challenge (the Taurus Moon)is also the focus and goal.
It’s a tricky mix, and you may swing back and forth between freedom versus security. Freedom is security in this case, if new relationship areas and compromise are integrated into existing routines. What are you trying to solidify but not stagnate?
This is taking place in the dark time just before tonight’s Taurus New Moon (6:45 pm EDT), suggesting an emerging issue that’s difficult to see clearly. When the New Moon hits, things should become clearer, but don’t ignore the challenging dynamics beforehand. How you handle this Yod will add to your New Moon potentials.
