“There are seconds, they come only five or six at a time, and you suddenly feel the presence of eternal harmony, fully achieved. It is nothing earthly; not that it’s heavenly, but man cannot endure it in his earthly state. One must change physically or die. The feeling is clear and indisputable. As if you suddenly sense the whole of nature and suddenly say: yes, this is true. God, when he was creating the world, said at the end of each day of creation: ‘Yes, this is true, this is good.’ This . . . this is not tenderheartedness, but simply joy. You don’t forgive anything, because there is no longer anything to forgive. You don’t really love — oh, what is here is higher than love! What’s most frightening is that it’s so terribly clear, and there’s such joy. If it were longer than five seconds — the soul couldn’t endure it and would vanish. In those five seconds I live my life through, and for them I would give my whole life, because it’s worth it. To endure ten seconds one would have to change physically . . . .”
Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Demons
The energy of Monday’s New Moon finds stability and grounding today, providing tangible — perhaps even reliable — progress. Intuition feeds a powerful sense of destiny, purpose, or mission, which encourages us to move forward. We have decidedly more clarity about exactly where to direct our efforts — a firm grip on what needs to be done. Today’s enthusiasm and commitment is shared widely and there is a general feeling of reassurance. However, we should not take this atmosphere for granted or assume that we have reached the top of the mountain and expect to coast down the other side. Today simply offers us a boost of encouragement and strength, allowing us to regain our footing and make tangible preparations for further progress.
The moon continues to move through Taurus, making sextiles with Mercury this morning and Neptune this evening, followed by a bountiful trine between Venus in Taurus and Jupiter in Capricorn.
Sweet dreams are made of this, only this is not a dream. This is your life! And today’s aspects suggest a cornucopia of delights and delicious opportunities coming your way.
As the moon connects with Mercury, there could be late-night conversations that deepen intimacy in a connection or reveal possibilities in a situation that you’d previously missed. Mercury is nearing the end of its shadow phase, and things that seemed to fall apart around Valentine’s Day, when Mercury stationed retrograde, could be showing new signs of life. Remember your lessons, then you needn’t repeat the patterns.
As the moon connects with Neptune and Venus trines Jupiter, there are dream opportunities arising and a chance to move things to a new level. Relationships, finances, and creative situations can flourish under these stars. You can have what you want, but do you know what you want?
This is a chance to dig deeper and move beyond the surface to get to the heart of something. Above all, be grateful—not just for what you are being given today but also for all your blessings, and for your life, the greatest gift of all. Share your good fortune and pay it forward. Embrace life and it will embrace you.
