The moon takes its first steps in Taurus today. There is a real temptation to sleep in, so go ahead and rest if you need it and don’t have any obligations to tend to. Then take the first half of the day slow and easy, giving yourself space to feel and process your emotions. There are few workable solutions to be found today. The waning square between Saturn and Uranus, which are both retrograde, is back to within one degree of orb, creating echoes of the slowdowns that we experienced last year. However, our perspectives have changed. We can find ways to make better use of this challenging energy — if we can avoid wallowing in frustration or recrimination. The opportunities for re-evaluation are popping up everywhere, giving us the chance to shift gears and adjust our aims and goals. Taking advantage of an opportunity to make a fresh start, with increased awareness, is what today is really all about.
Luckily, the moon is exalted, which gives our vitality a boost and helps perk us up a bit. It’s a good day to focus on yourself and the things that make you happy. Switch your attention to simple pleasures and allow yourself to be a little bit superficial (it will help balance out yesterday’s heavy energy). Rally around the people who make you feel valued and strong, and give yourself permission to let down your hair and laugh a bit! Creative inspiration often strikes when the moon is in Taurus, so keep a journal handy for any brilliant ideas you have during the day, or spend your time creating art to get your mind off other matters.
Overnight, the moon cozies up with Venus, which lends you plenty of warm energy and fills your heart with gratitude and joy. You should be feeling a lot more like yourself tonight, so don’t be afraid to appreciate and love yourself!

26 | Flamingo Spirit | Embrace the in-between.
Balance comes easily to Flamingo Spirit, who sees what was and what will be and stands strong in the face of uncertainty. You can be informed by what came before and plan for a future yet to be, but do not resist Flamingo Spirit’s call to be fully present in the now, where the real magic happens.
With one foot in the life you are moving away from and one in the future as you become the one who leads the life of your highest intentions, you must make peace with the fact that you are not fully in either place. Embrace the in-between!
The presence of Flamingo Spirit is also a sign that your creativity is arising within you and opportunities are beginning to present themselves. Remain here in a balanced state of mind, for there is much to know and learn before going forward with new plans.
You can trust this moment and yourself as you take in what you see and become aware of all that you are experiencing in this in-between time.
2022 LUNAR CALENDAR
9/17/2022, LAST QUARTER MOON IN GEMINI/CANCER: Moon in Gemini manifests itself by the need for changes and spontaneity. Safety lies in thinking about your feelings and sharing them with others. You can be more talkative and speak with ease these days. You might have a better ability to keep a cool head, but beware, cold heart can discourage others. Harmony of thinking and feeling is important.
Moon in Cancer brings your feeling of safety related to your home, family and related activities such as cooking and gardening. You may be prone to emotional fluctuations; you should learn to forgive and forget in order to avoid depression from thinking too much about things. Your perception of the world can be very subjective; try to create a certain distance without being bitter. Due to your rich emotional manifestation you can create a real sense of belonging in the world.
9/25/2022, NEW MOON IN VIRGO: You might have a strong need for balance and harmony now. You probably desire to keep things nice rather than venturing into fundamental questions in order not to disturb the peace. You must learn to share your good and bad feelings. Do not be afraid to be who you really are, despite what is expected of you.
