27 JULY 2016, TAURUS
It’s a 3rd Quarter Moon in Taurus. You’ve worked hard and really deserve a reward, and the rewards are there waiting to be enjoyed, but when you reach for them an emotional, financial or other issue pops up. The Sun, Venus and Mercury in Leo offer the rewards, but is something sabotaging you from receiving them? Perhaps your boss wants you to work through yet another lunch break. Or you hit the town with a friend but the emotional floodgates open up and what was meant to be fun turns into a pity party. This of course won’t do because the 3rd Quarter Moon in Taurus is all about reaping the rewards of your efforts and enjoying life’s celebrations and pleasures. The main culprit is Mars. Only three days away from entering the zodiac sign Sagittarius, he’s trying to wind up his time in Scorpio (where he’s been since January) by raising a few final ghosts or power issues. You’re a bit over it really. Mars is too, but he can’t help himself. He needs to be sure you have what it takes to extend an attitude of generosity (whether 10% or 100%), even in the most trying of situations. You really can receive the bounty possible at this Taurus 3rd Quarter Moon. Some curveballs might slow you down, but stay determined, warm-hearted, and respectful of your own and others’ dignity (no matter how undignified someone might be behaving) and you could be kicking up your heels within a few days.
