The new Moon is at 21 degrees Taurus at 2:59 PM EST.
Taurus loves its safety and security so that it can appreciate the natural Beauty that is Life on planet Earth.
The simple pleasure of a well- loved breakfast - and second breakfast - can be a way to celebrate this new Moon.
Taurus is learning how to value the self – its physical form - via food, rest and cozy furnishings.
Taurus can be brave and adventurous when pushed out the door or pulled into a cause it cannot ignore.
Taurus prefers to be fully fed and rested before embarking on any quests, odysseys or other value-fueled worthy projects.
Safety first is the rallying cry here. Practicality will help the team survive the day.
If we survive the journey we can return home to tend the garden, raise the barn and laze in the Sun.
Attuning to what is important to us is the focus of the Taurus new Moon. We each have a finite amount of time here in this body, in this life.
How do we want to spend that time?
How do we want to spend our valuable time?
How do we want to live this valuable life?
In the dark of the Moon we can feel our way into what we value, what we we can fit in the palm of our hand— glistening, shining through the cracks between our fingers, saying “take me along.”
What is the nugget of pure beauty, of unquestionable value, that can speak to us about this one life?
This little and powerful meditation can be done by sitting in the garden and holding a seed or a clump of Earth. It can be done by going to sleep holding a favorite stone or talisman or teddy bear.
Ask the Higher Self, “what do I value now? And what is the most valuable action for me now?
Venus, ruler of Taurus, is currently in Gemini - as is Mercury. The Sun and new Moon Sextile Neptune — the higher octave of Venus – ruler of Taurus.
Simple questions can give us deep, helpful, useful, actionable and accessible answers starting with this new Moon.
The questions are asked. They reach out their tendrils to the higher Self and the Universal Wisdom.
Mercury in an air trine to Saturn brings ideas into reality in good timing when we attend to them.
Mars in Cancer Sextile Uranus in Taurus waters and makes fertile the ground laid for those ideas.
As the Moon waxes, the answers will reach toward us, as the grape vine in my garden twines around its neighbor, the pear tree.
The answers are seeking us.
Bask in the inner glow of the Higher Self in comfort and assurance that what needs to be answered will be answered and even, known.
Lots of love, Lydia
