On New Moons release the past, any habits, conditioning, thoughts, beliefs that aren’t authentic or no longer serve you. At this time the Moon and Sun are united at the exact same degree in the sky, both their lights blocked from our sight, merging both conscious and unconscious aspects of our mind. Energy is bought into a contemplative, reflective and quiet mood.
This makes rich soil for contacting your inner/higher self/subconscious, planning and setting foundations and goals for your path.
Write down what you are releasing, then burn them as you visualize and feel yourself let go with love and gratitude for how they have served you up until now.
New Moons are about Manifesting, so next plant the seeds of intention you want to sew, then water them with action. Write up to 10 intentions or affirmations to bring into your life over the next six months, by the Full Moon in TAURUS. This is when the Sun & Moon are opposite each other at their extreme ends of mutual polarity.
To take it a step further, draw or make a vision board for your plans, make sure you add a fruition date.
Focus on areas and approaches that TAURUS rules, such as:
- Building things of beauty that endure longer than oneself
Practical beauty, ie the craftsperson/craft
The senses/ sensual pleasure/pleasure of the flesh
The dollars and cents/wealth accumulation
Natural resources, skills, and talent
Smelling the flowers
Slowly and steadily, step by step, brick by brick
Taurus rules the neck/throat
“I easily express my natural abilities for fair and equal exchange”
“I easily know my worth and demand fair and equal exchange financially”
“I easily build a solid financial and emotional base”
“I easily use my resourcefulness to make the most of every situation and challenge”
“I easily see the value in everyone I meet as they see the value in me”
“I enjoy all the bounty Earth has to offer”
“I love and respect my body and the pleasure it brings me”
“I handle my resources in ways that are in my overall best interests”
“I live in comfortable, beautiful and peaceful surroundings”
“I easily find myself keeping my word and being a person others can rely on and trust”
“I consciously and consistently experience feelings of self-worth in every area of my life”
This New Moon is a great opportunity to build up any foundations and resources that need attention, both financially and emotionally. The aim here is security. Taurus is a Fixed Earth sign. The first of the Earth signs and only second in the zodiac Taurus is concerned with ‘mine’. The motto is ‘I have’. If its just talk, Taurus isn’t interested. My body, my resources, show me the money.
The financial situation we find ourselves in often reflects our sense of self-worth. We all have natural resources and talents we can trade in fair exchange for a good living, if not a truly lux one! If your self-worth could do with some work, then get to it and bring in the appreciation and gratitude for yourself. Taurus is patient, diligent and works hard. Where do you see yourself? Plan. Set your goals, look at what you have to do to get your abilities on point and to get there, and get started. Step by step is all it takes. Break it down into bite-size steps. Reverse engineer. Trust your gut? Then just get started.
If you self-sabotage or seem to have blocks to money and resources then therapy can often reveal the hidden benefits of not coming into your material power. Coaching can build up where you may not have had the opportunity to develop a strong self-esteem. Go back to the drawing board and draw up a new model that will serve you better.
Taurus is ruled by Venus in her practical manifestation. Any arts you are drawn to? Now’s the time to work on or take up your craft.
The ‘house’ of your natal chart this New Moon falls in tells us where in life you need a solid foundation, employing a step by step approach to achieving goals. It also shows us where you need to stop, smell the flowers and enjoy the material and sensual wealth of this earthly life.
Taurus rules the throat, what area of life do you need to open that larynx and belt out your voice?
Speak your truth, your needs, and your boundaries, or better yet, power ballad it.
This month the New Moon falls in the 12th house of my natal chart, the most unearthly area of life ruling the non-manifest, dreams and the collective unconscious. I’ve been readying the ground to practice lucid dreaming in an effort to move forward into more spiritual practices. Also inspired to build on musical ability as a spiritual practice, step by step (ie express my self vocally beyond the crushing and strangling of ego-very 12th and a big personal struggle when it comes to singing).
Where are you planting your seeds of intention? Any Tauruses out there with some solid guidelines for how best to direct this part of life? Any insider trading on the Taurus mindset, and how to get sh*t done?!
