Happy new moon! Last month we had the new moon in Aries, a day many astrologers consider the new year. This upcoming new moon is in earth sign Taurus. As fate would have it, this year the new moon falls on Earth Day <3 Thank you Gaia, we love you infinitely!
Visualize a dwelling deep in the woods: leafy green vegetation, brilliant fruits, a cacophony of birdsong; tranquil bodies, rosy breath. This is the home of the sacred cow.
Aries season asked us to name what we want in the coming year. Consciously or not, we have chosen a direction. The New Moon in Taurus is here to fortify our intention. Everything about Taurus is solid and dependable. She is the one who nurtures, waters, and feeds. She is our mother, sister, and hostess.
New moons make us feel tired, and this is especially true with Taurus. The bull holds us close in flowery landscapes, yet something stagnant lingers. Given our current circumstances, the best thing we can do is channel this earth energy directly into our physical homes. If we have to spend so much time at home, it’s essential that we enjoy being there!
Humans need comfort and shelter in order to survive. If we don’t have our usual comforts at this new moon, fears around lack and scarcity will be triggered. This new moon is all about value and quality. What makes you feel rich, and not just in a material sense? Yes, finance is central to the archetype of Taurus, but we clearly need to take a closer look at how we spend our time and energy too. How can we be more wise with energetic investments? Taureans generally oscillate between chilling the fuck out and working like crazy, with no in between.
Two aspects worth mentioning: a loose conjunction to Uranus in Taurus and a much closer square to Saturn in Aquarius. The conjunction to Uranus, as always, means expect the unexpected – and also increased social connectivity (online). The square to Saturn signals that we need to be very gentle with ourselves and tone down the criticism/cynicism – keep it light yet earthy <3 Write about what makes you feel grounded. Pick up a pen and draw yourself in your dream home, or perhaps hanging from a tree in the rainforest. Get some dirt under your nails. Take long walks, lay in the grass, watch the clouds. In yoga and meditation, focus on the heart chakra. Savor the moment with Taurus Yoga. To find your personal moon sign, click here.
