Have you been dealing with excessive limits, lately?
It’s not your imagination; as the planets move through Taurus, they’re all running up against the opposition to Saturn (restrictions) at 8 degrees Scorpio. Venus (love, money, self-esteem) in Taurus experienced the Saturn hit on April 22nd. Between now and May 1st, the Sun (life force) and Mars (action) will feel the crunch.
Saturn is retrograde (reversed), so these are old or repeating limits/fears/rules that are blocking you. You want to build something up (Taurus) but you…just…can’t. Things take double the amount of work. Or you run into a wall. Here’s a tip; when faced with an opposition to Saturn, never attempt to plow straight through. The restrictions are there for a reason. Find another way around. Pay attention to where your energy is being refocused, and go that way.
The upside to this influence is that it teaches you resourcefulness and maturity. You figure out another way to make something work, or you dig a bit deeper. That’s evolved Taurus energy, coming through in the crunch. Taurus never gives up, but it can shift into a higher gear.
If you have planets between 4-8 degrees Taurus or Scorpio, you’ll be caught in this crunch.

monday april 29th- the first aspect of the day and week is exact at 7:49pm when venus in taurus contraparallels the north node in scorpio, creating an energetic opposition between our needs, desires and attachments and our path of growth, evolution and destiny. on sunday the 28th venus aligned with the south node by degree and today she does so by declination. pay close attention to the karmic patterns/tendencies/dramas playing out in your life during this 48 hour period. the pull towards old behaviors that are based on fear, attachment or needs for safety/security likely are at odds with our Soul's need for growth and evolution. seeing this is one thing but doing something differently is another. breaking free from karmic patterns in relationships, finances and self-worth is not easy- but it is worth it!
