I cover a lot here. Below is it the rudimentary order of topic. Know that I define all terms and consider my approach to this language very open for beginners. My goal is to always be understood, relevant, and useful to our actual lived experience.

-Why Mercury cycles are helpful and fascinating when you starts tracking yours. Yesterday’s cazimi marks the middle point of a cycle that started February 25 when Mercury first met the Sun while retrograde in Pisces. The story began then, and took a big turn the week of March 9 when Mercury stationed direct. Now the story is moving fast and will begin to gain big picture over the course of next week as Mercury pulls away from the Sun and becomes an evening star.

-The Full Moon in Scorpio is May 7, and this one wants us to do some emotional processing of WTH has been going on for us. I’m always down for Scorpio’s real talk. The purpose of this entire episode is to help myself and anyone listening to process through what HAS been happening, what IS happening, and what will likely be the coming energies to process through.

-I discuss the current energies using the framework of the quarantine home as a fishbowl. From a fishbowl, fish have a pretty poor understanding of the big picture and a fairly distorted view of reality. I share how the planet Neptune plays a big role in the goings-on right now, which is not a great energy for clear sight or discernment.

-If astrology is here to help us understand how to work with the energies available to us in the most conscious and skillful way possible (my take), then what is the invitation right now? I discuss how Saturn as a drying principle can be really useful. With Saturn, we have to talk about boundaries, and boundaries are really necessary right now. So, I get into boundaries here. And I talk about the benefits of sobering and drying out in order to regain clearer sight in a time of Neptune and a lot of coming retrogrades.

-The medicine of Taurus is really centering, rooting, and slowing right now. In honor of this lunar cycle in Taurus, I give a teaching on how Taurus can support you like a ballast. In times like these, there can be a sense of “What’s the point?” regarding intentions and astro feels. My argument is that what we need is to go to the very marrow, the essence of the sign energy to receive its most present, near, basic nourishment. And I share these here.

-At the heart of Taurus is the need to get honest about our values, because our values determine our definition of abundance. Right now, we’re in a time of shifting values as things change within and around us, and thus our definition of abundance is changing. It’s empowering to get clear about this.

-At around an hour into the episode, I discuss how Taurus medicine, which has to do with deep immanent presence in the body, helps us heal from trauma. I do not describe anything that causes trauma specifically, and I stay high level, but note the TRIGGER WARNING if you don’t want to hear anything about trauma. You will know when I’m starting that conversation because it’s about the Queen of Pentacles, and so when you hear me start talking there, you can bump 10 minutes ahead.

-Finally, I give a tarot reading for the invitation of the present. It’s a rich reading that I am still intaking. I hope you will stick around and find the message supportive to you.

So yeah, a lot here! Ha! Thank you for giving the episode a listen. If you enjoyed it, please rate, subscribe, or review. This really helps me and is a beautiful act of reciprocity. I’d love to have you join my community at, or following me on IG @brittenlarue. In the episode, I reference my Taurus workbook, which you can check out on my website. I have a handful left. I read from the sumptuous and thoughtful guidebook of the Dalí Tarot, written by tarot scholar Johannes Fieberg.
