This earthy new moon in Taurus asks us to ‘keep it simple,’ and continue to de-clutter our lives emotionally, mentally, spiritually and physically.
In Taurus, the moon is at her most sensual and grounded. She shows us just how rooted we are in our projects, making this a time to ‘keep on, keeping on,’ but without the need to make things happen. This moon strengthens our commitment to projects and endeavours, helping us remain steadfast, despite the chaos in the external world.
Taurus is ruled by Venus, so this is also the moon of appreciation. This is an excellent time to spoil yourself, and make sure to have some fun. Venus reminds us to enjoy the finer things in life, like a good meal, inspiring art, or simply watching the sunset and/or rise, this moon can reconnect us to the the beauty of nature and the wondrous magic all around us.
Here are my 7 top tips to help successfully surf this Taurus new moon.
Re-examine your Finances
The Taurus moon helps us to re-examine our finances, and understand our spending. Ask yourself: ‘Is this purchase taking me towards my goals and aspirations?’ Abundance is a state of mind and spending consciously enables us to manifest more, as each purchase is a powerful statement of abundance to the Universe. If you don’t feel you have enough money, focus on what you have, rather than worrying about what you don’t. Shifting our focus just slightly can help us utilise our money prudently, rather than feel powerless and in lack.
See the Abundance
Sometimes this moon can cause a sense of dissatisfaction, and we can become blind to what we already have. We are surrounded by abundance. Resources seem to be more available to us during this moon, and the clearer we are of what we want the easier it will be to manifest it in our lives. This is the time to let the magic of life flow you to the right people and connections that can help you create your visions.
Ignite the Passion
Use this new moon to connect with your lover, be adventurous and take time out to have fun. Use the magic of Beltane to re-ignite your passion, love and commitment to one another. If you are single this is the perfect time to attract a mate. Be brave and do something completely wild and out of character, as the sensual Venus energy is urging us to express the passionate wild side of ourselves.
Focus on Success
Use the high idealism, determination, and focus of this Taurus Moon, to increase your confidence and self-worth so you can be the best you can be, with an inner certainty that you can achieve anything you want to. This is also a great time to get fit, quit any addictive habits, ask for a pay rise, leave a job that is not fulfilling you, or make that empowering change in your life!! Listen to your inner voice, as it will be stronger over this moon, and you will find it easier to make decisions.
Recognise the Bull
Taurus energises us to become pro-active, and galvanises us to rise above the sometimes suffocating feelings of helplessness and desperation, with renewed faith. Now is the time to move into the flow of acceptance by recognising the bull, and not believing the hype. In order to strengthen your foundations you must be stubborn and steadfast in your commitment to your dreams and not compromise your values and beliefs.
Overcome the Obstacles
By illuminating the qualities of practicality, tenacity, and the sense of being grounded, this moon keeps us focused and on track, strengthening our resolve and inspiring us to continue no matter what obstacles are in our way.
This is also a good time to do a bit of ‘cosmic ordering’ and ask for what you want. The key to cosmic ordering is to really feel the sensation of the desire/intention coming true and allow that to silence the negative critic who doubts and questions the possibilities. We have been working a lot with letting go of the negative critic in past moons, so this is a good time to put our practice to the test and watch the magic unfold.
I will end this Lunascope with the wise words of Joseph Campbell, in Sukhavati.
“We’re in a free fall into the future. We don’t know where we’re going. Things are changing so fast. And always when you’re going through a long tunnel, anxiety comes along. But all you have to do to transform your hell into a paradise is to turn your fall into a voluntary act. It’s a very interesting shift of perspective. Joyfully participate in the sorrows of the world and everything changes.”
