New Moon in Taurus May 15, 2018: The Rosebud

Moonbeams: Find your happiness. You will bloom when the conditions are right.

The New Moon in Taurus is special for a few reasons. Firstly, on the day of the NM Uranus moves into the sign of Taurus until 2026 which is going to detabilize our sense of security. Check out my blog all about this here. Secondly, Mars is at the final degree of Capricorn which feels like a do or die situation. Thirdly, Mars is squaring Uranus which is amping up the voltage. Let’s take a closer look shall we.

“The day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” – Anais Nin

This year’s Taurus New Moon lacks the cushy stability it’s known for. It’s as though the other planets and energies are hijacking the security that we usually feel with Taurean moons.

Mars is squaring Uranus during this NM making us feel restless and ruthless. Remember that Mars at 29 degrees feels like jumping off the bridge just because he’s desparate for a change. Be careful not to take any foolish risks. It’s best to channel this intense energy through exercise and movement. Taurus is a sensual sign so there is a major test we are being handed from the universe. How grounded can you be admist chaos?

Mars and Pluto are making a trine to the NM can bring up some deep seated emotions leading to angry outbursts or suppressed sadness. On a positive note great healing can be accomplished in the two week span of the NM. Mars & Pluto trining the NM brings Venus the ruler of the NM into the mix as well. Bringing these three planets together will help us to understand where we are devaluing ourselves. As whatshisface once sang, “every rose has its thorn” but does that make the Rose ugly or does it simply show that beauty doesn’t come without pain?

Venus the ruler of the NM is is Gemini which is an intellectual placement. We have the ability to rationalize and make sense of everything that”s going on. It’s a nice relief from all of the intensity.

To go back to the Anais Nin quote above, there is a frustration that has been present for a while now. We have three planets in Capricorn- Saturn, Pluto, & Mars. It feels as though time has stopped moving and we want to forge ahead. It feels incredibly stagnant and slow which is driving everyone crazy. We are ready to blossom because it’s no fun being a bud anymore. Flowers know that when the conditions are right, they will bloom. Uranus moving into the sign of Taurus is agitating the soil. Emotions are stirring at this NM which will activate new growth. Flowers value their conditions because without them- sunlight, water, soil, shade, they would never survive. Instead of resenting your current situation, look to nature- Taurus’ domain for guidance. Appreciate the beauty that surrounds you, love your struggles, and be grateful for slowness….afterall, Roses only bloom for a few short weeks. Value your time as a bud, because that will determine the beauty of your bloom.

New Moon in Taurus April 26, 2017: Let Them Eat Cake!

Moonbeams- nurture yourself, presence, mindfulness

New Moons in Taurus are always about taking time for yourself to indulge, by practicing mindfulness through being present in each and every moment. Venus the ruler of Taurus will still be in its shadow phase during this time conjunct Chiron in Pisces a 29 degrees signifying the cusp of great change with regards to self worth before moving back into Aries. Seeing as there is strong Neptunian energy during this NM, there is a certain mystical threshold that is being crossed, synchronicity’s, dreams, divination, déjà vu will all be very heightened. Saturn still at the galactic centre is representing a major shift in the space time continuum where the future, present, and past are colliding, creating out of body experiences for us. We don’t have any control over this, but what we do have is the fixed earth energy of Taurus which is teaching us a major lesson of being present and rooted in our nature. Coming back into our bodies is in itself a spiritual practice because our 5 senses allow us to stay connected to our earthy sensuous being, creating a fertile ground for new roots to take hold. The polarity of Taurus is Scorpio which is forcing us to let go of co-dependency- depending on spirit to bring us the answers we need. Everything we need to know is within ourselves. Self reliance is Taurean energy in its rawest form. If we are not grounded, it doesn’t matter how much information is being downloaded. We have a choice during this New Moon of whether we are going to embrace the lessons of Taurus’ ruler Venus from its retrograde cycle of loving ourselves by honouring our needs by listening to our inner voice (Taurus-throat), or are we going to get lost in the Piscean current? As Marie Antoinette (archetype of self indulgence)- who had her Venus in Scorpio said- “let them eat cake”, a.k.a, let us get real with ourselves by understanding that we have all the information we need going forward, so let’s make the most of it!
