But fart just one time …
Before we start talking about the Libra Moon, let’s begin with a bit of information about the Moon itself. Astrologers consider the Moon a planet. It moves so quickly through the sky that it passes through each of the 12 zodiac signs every month.
When the Moon is in Libra
When the Moon is in Libra you might also feel a bit like Ginger Rogers, and everyone and everything you meet is Fred Astaire. During this time of the Libra Moon, your mantra may be “grace in space.” If you meet an obstacle or encounter resistance, you’ll be able to dance like you expected it to be there. Because Libra’s natural skills are diplomacy and negotiation, the Moon in Libra gives you the ability to use charm and tact to get what you want.
New Moon in Libra
The New Moon is all about a new cycle, and the Libra New Moon is all about finding ways to reestablish balance that has been lost. Finding a sense of balance allows us to deal with life’s issues smoothly, and helps us to discover the peaceful neutral point from which clarity, common sense, and cooperation come from. Whether it’s in personal or business relationships, the influence of the Libra New Moon helps us see both sides of any story.
This may also be the time when you initiate new relationship, or get a fresh start in an ongoing one. A New Moon in Libra will gently nudge you to hit the emotional reset button and start over so that you can look to the horizon with renewed anticipation.
Full Moon in Libra
Every Full Moon is a culmination of a monthly cycle, and the social Libra Full Moon is no exception as it challenges you to manage your desire for companionship with your need for independence. Our connection to others and relationships are always at the forefront during a Full Moon so this isn’t a surprise, but it is even more noticeable during the Full Moon in Libra. Because you’ll have a heightened awareness of your emotions, you’ll have incredible clarity about any inequity in your partnerships.
Instead of being concerned that you have no office, be concerned to think how you may fit yourself for office. Instead of being concerned that you are not known, see to the (be?) worthy of being known.
Changes in your life are happening, or about to, when you draw the number 5. This is good karma because you have wanted something new and exciting. Whatever you let go of – be that emotional, physical, or spiritual – is working in your favor. You may be tempted to backpedal into old habits because it was what you knew, so it feels comfortable or right. Not so. Think more about what you want, the positives, rather than what you don’t, or the negatives. This will help the change seem effortless.
Your Daily Witches Rune
Meanings: The “x” marks represent the four main phases of the moon and so you can expect changes to happen within the next 28 days. This is a particularly feminine stone and often appears in response to questions about women’s issues. The Moon rune is a messenger. It is telling you to be aware that major changes are coming to your life. Consult the runes closest to it to determine whether those changes are negative or positive.
“The most obvious Truth is hidden deep within, and only you will ever know it.”

THIS TAROT CARD WANTS YOU TO FOLLOW THE PATH
In this series, Jamie Richardson of Ember + Aura Tarot explains how to embrace the message of each major arcana card.
The Hierophant is an unwavering symbol of convention, conformity, and tradition. Often depicted as a masculine figure, he holds the key to wisdom and thus, enlightenment—if we’re willing to adopt his particular set of rules and follow his lead. The Hierophant plays the role of priest and offers his devotees access to divinity through the setting aside of their own personal agendas and strict adherence to a particular doctrine. He is the face of organized religion and cherished institutions. Wherever there is a uniform group mentality that respects time-honored customs and codes, you will find The Hierophant.
The Hierophant is the counterpart to The High Priestess. What The High Priestess intuitively feels in the dark of the moonlit soul and understands by relying on her inner sight, the Hierophant recognizes as absolute truth because established systems and set practices have deemed it so. The way of the Hierophant is structured and specific. He teaches that there is a particular way of doing things, a way that has always worked in the past and will continue to do so forever.
For those of us who have spent many years learning to trust our own instincts, follow our own path, and listen to our inner voice, The Hierophant can be very triggering. In his most negative light, he denies that anyone can claim a personal avenue to enlightenment. He leaves no room for individual navigation of the soul. He insists that the only way to reach the divine is by being funneled into a collective mentality and obeying the rules within a system. Obviously, this is an outdated method for reaching our highest self and we would do well to shed this projected mindset.
Now, let’s take a look at how The Hierophant can work for us in a more positive, inspiring way. As I was creating my tarot deck, the subject of this card was particularly challenging to me. I was tired of surrendering my power to outside sources; I didn’t believe someone else possessed the key to ultimate truth. How could I choose an image for my Hierophant card that evoked my own trust and respect? I had to ask myself who my ideal Hierophant was and settled on the figure of a guide (embodied here as the Christ.) As an authentic leader, the Hierophant brings the concepts and ideas of truth into the light of collective consciousness. Ideally, he gently points the way towards transcendent bliss and encourages his apostles to purify themselves through consistent practice and discipline in order to ascend. His goals require surrender and self-denial. This basically translates to renouncing the ego and continually pouring oneself out onto the altar of symbolic death and renewal. Through this sacrifice of self, we ultimately reach new heights as we learn to embrace a greater good that goes beyond ourselves.
When The Hierophant shows up in a reading, you are being called into some sort of Initiation. Either you are being asked to undergo a new path of learning, or you are being called to become a teacher or guide for others. Let the implications of both of these possibilities sink in. Make room for new ideas and opportunities to reveal themselves to you. Take comfort in the fact that you don’t have to have all the right answers. Rather, many masters have gone before you, paving the way, and are more than willing to help you shoulder the burden of being “right” all the time. More than likely, you will soon find yourself surrounded by like-minded individuals on a similar path to your own, who share many of your spiritual values.
When you begin to see yourself as a part of a whole, rather than a separate identity, The Hierophant is working his magic in your life. His essence is that of a wise and patient guide who sees you as a promising student. Don’t be surprised if you experience profound shifts in your priorities, have strong urges to write and speak your truth, and find yourself stepping outside of your comfort zone. Explore the possibility of accepting a path of conventionality, one that has withstood the test of time, and learn the lesson it has to offer. The Hierophant is an intelligent energy and one that must be absorbed in order to achieve inner harmony.

Tarot Card of the Day
King of Wands
This suit, most often called “Wands” and sometimes called “Rods” or “Staves,” represents initiative, ambition, drive and desire. This is the suit of enterprise and risk-taking.
Traditionally representing the energy of a dynamic King, this card represents the classic conquering hero. He’s a charismatic leader, entrepreneurial and ambitious, always creating new adventures. He does this because he doesn’t like to stay home or to have to “mind the store” — he gets to feeling restless and bored with the predictable. If you need a crusader, or someone to take on a big challenge, he’s your man. He needs a big assignment, and would rather lead than follow.
It could be said that he has a bit of an ego, as evidenced in his enjoyment of flattery and praise. A bit of a performer, he overachieves in situations where it will be noticed, but in private he wants to be served and adored like the head lion of a pride. A benevolent dictator, he makes life wonderful for those he loves and just the opposite for those who displease him.

Practical and well-grounded, Taurus is the sign that harvests the fruits of labor. They feel the need to always be surrounded by love and beauty, turned to the material world, hedonism, and physical pleasures. People born with their Sun in Taurus are sensual and tactile, considering touch and taste the most important of all senses. Stable and conservative, this is one of the most reliable signs of the zodiac, ready to endure and stick to their choices until they reach the point of personal satisfaction.
Taurus is an Earth sign, just like Virgo and Capricorn, and has the ability to see things from a grounded, practical and realistic perspective. They find it easy to make money and stay on same projects for years, or until they are completed. What we often see as stubbornness can be interpreted as commitment, and their ability to complete tasks whatever it takes is uncanny. This makes them excellent employees, great long-term friends and partners, always being there for people they love. Earthly note makes them overprotective, conservative, or materialistic at times, with views of the world founded on their love of money and wealth.
The ruler of Taurus is Venus, the planet of love, attraction, beauty, satisfaction, creativity and gratitude. This tender nature will make Taurus an excellent cook, gardener, lover, and artist. They are loyal and don’t like sudden changes, criticism or the chase of guilt people are often prone to, being somewhat dependable on other people and emotions they seem to be unable to let go of. Still, no matter their potential emotional challenge, these individuals have the ability to bring a practical voice of reason in any chaotic and unhealthy situation.
Taurus – the Wandering Bull Being the one who betrayed their best friend, goddess Hera herself, this is an unfortunate being that has to wander the Earth in order to find freedom. As if something was always poking them behind their back, reminding them of happiness that once was, stinging and pushing forwards, they close up in their own worlds, lonely and separated from their core. To find love, a Taurus has to travel the world, change perspective or make a shift in their entire belief system and their system of values.
TAURUS LOVE AND SEX
One always has to be prepared to have patience for a Taurus lover. They are extremely sensual, touch, smell and all pleasurable senses being extremely important to them, but they also need time to create a safe environment and relax in their sexual encounters. When they create enough intimacy with a loved one, they become a bit gooey, sometimes even needy, and have to keep their emotions in check, holding on to practical reasoning, while embracing change and initiative of their partner at all times.
For long-term relationships they often choose people from the same social environment that are able to respond to their intellectual needs, but also the expectations of their family and close friends. Holding on to traditional values and the practical side to life, this is a sign that rarely chooses a partner who won’t fulfill basic expectations of their upbringing, often showing and receiving attention through gifts and material things. If they stick to the moral code too stiffly and refuse all taboos and adventurous approaches, they could end up swimming in frustration and anger issues they don’t know how to resolve, often manifesting through the person standing in front of them. Taurus compatibility with other signs can be complicated.
This is a sign of physical pleasure, hedonism and the flow of emotion that isn’t reserved for just anyone. Select the match in the widget bellow to discover who makes their heart jump:
TAURUS FRIENDS AND FAMILY
Friends – People born in this sign are loyal and always willing to lend a hand of friendship, although they can be closed up for the outer world before they build trust for new social contacts they make. Many of their friendships begin in childhood with a tendency to last them a lifetime. Once they make a clear intimate connection to another person, they will do anything they can to nurture the relationship and make it functional even in the hard times.
Family – Home and matters of the family are very important to every Taurus. This is a person who loves kids and appreciates time spent with people who love them, respecting family routines, customs, and present in all events and gatherings. They will enjoy hosting house parties for both their family and friends, and don’t mind cooking a meal for a room full of people if they just have fun in return.
TAURUS CAREER AND MONEY
Taurus representatives usually love money and will work hard in order to earn it. They are reliable, hardworking, patient and thorough, as an employee or someone in a position of power. When focused on a specific project, they will firmly stick to it, no matter what happens in the world around them. Stability is the key to understand their working routine. The search for material pleasures and rewards is an actual need to build their own sense of value and achieve a satisfying luxurious, yet practical way of life. Their job is observed as a means to make it possible.
Taurus is a Sun sign well organized with their finances, and all of their bills will be paid without delay. They care for their pension, taking responsibility and saving some money for a rainy day, able to make due with a really small and a really big salary just the same. Occupations that fit them are agriculture, banking, art, and anything that involves culinary skills.
HOW TO ATTRACT THE TAURUS MAN
If you are in search for a strong, loyal and generous man, Taurus is the person you are looking for. He is trustworthy, patient and tender when in love, always in search for a returned emotion. He will not pick on subtle hinds and suggestive looks from those who flirt with him, being a bit slow on the uptake as if waiting for someone to ask them out. He dislikes artificiality of any kind, and values conversations filled with genuine statements, especially when it comes to compliments and love declarations.
A Taurus man needs time to build trust and anyone on a chase for his heart needs to take the time earning it. As a person of very few words, he will seem impossible to penetrate at times, as if nothing can touch him. An invitation for a delicious home-cooked mean is always a safe bet when dating this man, as well as choosing a place that is comfortable and cozy, rather than popular or modern. Turned to nature and common thinking, he will see sex as something that comes when the time is right, rarely puts any pressure on his partner and feels like it is something to be enjoyed, not so much something to crave for. A part of his fixed, static character is the potential inability to forgive betrayal, and he needs to feel truly safe to settle down with one partner for good.
HOW TO ATTRACT THE TAURUS WOMAN
If you want to seduce a woman born with her Sun in Taurus, you will need to appeal to her sense of romance. Taurus women want to be courted and slowly seduced, even when they have already decided to enter a relationship with someone. They need things to move slowly, and will rarely jump into a sexual bond quickly and without thinking long and hard about her choices.
A Taurus woman longs for true love and security. It is very unlikely that she will give into her desires and instincts quickly, and if someone wishes to have her heart, they will have to spend a lot of time and energy into the game of winning her over, making her feel comfortable. Once she falls in love she becomes affectionate, intimate, close and loyal, standing by her partner for as long as he is faithful to her. She has an eye for beautiful things and appreciates simplicity of fine things in life, so the way to approach her is through enjoyable shared moments, respect for privacy, fine food and a gentle touch. This is a woman who doesn’t like to feel rushed when dating and needs to have her time. Once she feels comfortable and secure with someone, she will happily and quickly give her heart without holding back.
