The New Moon in Taurus
The New Moon in Taurus formed
Wednesday -- at 6° 27' of the sign.
Here's what the Taurus Lunation chart looks like for this year.
The New Moon in Taurus is a double dose of stability, grounding, and focus on the practical use of material resources. The predominant energy now shifts from starting new projects and ventures ... to finding the money and other supporting elements these efforts will need to flourish ... or at least sustain themselves.
Issues of income, spending habits, prosperity, debt management, resource allocation, purchasing schedules, budgets, cash flow, the acquisition of property and possessions, the most efficient use of time and energy, and the setting of long-term "unalterable" plans are on the front burner of attention now ... for everyone.
Taurus is the Zodiac sign traditionally associated with money -- since that's an issue of burning concern to many people. But Taurus energy is actually about all things that involve physical and material support and having both the wit and the opportunity to appreciate them.
Taurus is involved with beauty, comfort, pleasure, and all things that delight ... and attract ... the physical senses. It's not just about boosting your bank balance, being the "kid on your block with all the toys," or winding up as the richest person in the cemetery. (As Colonel Sanders of Kentucky Fried Chicken fame used to say ... "You can't do any business from there.")
And so with the New Moon in Taurus as part of our energy now ... let's consider these things to do ... and beware of ... for the next several weeks.
