Taurus New Moon – Earthing and Birthing Your Dreams
Despite five planets being in retrograde including Mercury, the planet of communication, this Taurus new moon can help us earth and birth our dreams into the reality and see the seeds we have been planting taking root and growing.
There is a lot of emotions bubbling up from the deep unconscious, and feelings maybe coming up that might be hard to understand. So if you suddenly feel tearful, fearful, cheerful, joyful, soulful, emotional or volatile don’t try and work out why, emotions are just energies in motion, and a way of expressing inner feelings.
Fortunately the earthy Taurus new moon can help ground our energies so we feel more in control and focused, enabling us to reflect on the first quarter of this year, so we know where we are going.
Here are my 7 top tips too successfully surfing this Taurus new moon wave!
See the Beauty in Ordinariness
Nature has fully woken up here in the Northern hemisphere, as we pass Beltane and the beginning of Summer. The trees are now in full bloom and the bluebells and early summer flowers are now blanketing the woodlands. We have long days and shorter nights, clear skies and its getting warmer and more balmy.
Taurus is ruled by Venus and reminds us of how beautiful life is. If things have been challenging recently go walk in Nature and admire her beauty, her strength and her energy, to reignite your passion and light up the way. When we see nature as beautiful, the simple things like a sunset or sunrise, a bird, squirrel, a brave vulnerable flower breaking through the concrete, we can start to see how life is beautiful. Become aware of how beautiful ordinariness is and life instantly becomes more beautiful.
Ground your dreams
This is a time for integration and reflection so use this retrograde period to look back over the year and see the path you have been treading. Are you where you want to be? what mistakes did you make? what successes have you achieved? are you feeling that you are stepping closer to living your dreams? are you living your dreams and fully enjoying it? take a good look at where you are and from this place decide how you are going to move forward.
Think before you Act
This is not the time to act like a bull in a china shop. In other words best not to jump in without looking before you leap. You will find it much easier to surf this moon if you sit back and let life flow gently without trying to make it go the way you want it. If something looks too good to be true it’s because it usually is. Not all that glitters is gold so be very careful before agreeing to something and make sure to read the small print.
Stay True but not Stubborn
Stay true to you and your ideas but make sure you don’t become too stubborn or stuck in your ways over this moon. A Taurus Moon reminds us that it is teamwork that makes any relationship, creative endeavour and project successful. Make sure everyone has an equal voice so that you don’t alienate key people in your team, or you could find yourself isolated. Energy and creativity flow more easily when everyone is aligned to the vision and is being heard and acknowledged.
If you are feeling wobbly, or ungrounded go bare foot in nature and hug a tree. I know this sounds like a completely hippy thing to do but hugging a tree is a very powerful exercise to feel centred and grounded. When we hug a tree and send it our love, the energy spreads down the trunk to the roots and deep into the ground, rippling out to the other roots of other trees and spreading throughout the park/wood/forest. Likewise, the energy also travels upwards to the branches and leaves of the trees that touch the other trees and your energy vibrates throughout the canopy.
There is no right way to hug a tree, but the more you do it with a serious intent the more powerful this ritual becomes. Put your arms around the tree, and allow your body to merge with the tree. Slowly let go of holding on to your worries and feel the tree take your weight.
Once you are feeling in tune, ask the tree your question. The key here is to have no expectations of what will come up. The more open you are to any answer you will receive the more the tree can support and help you. Hugging reduces stress and calms the mind, making us feel more connected and at peace.
Feel the Passion
Romance and passion is in the air over a Taurus Moon so if there have been problems and disagreements with your partner this is the Moon to reconcile and reunite. Find the time to sit down and resolve issues that have been bugging you using the practical earthy Taurus energy, so that you can both move forward together. It can reignite a stale relationship, and bring you and your partner closer together.
The urge to find a mate is particularly powerful over this Moon so if you are single you may find an inner passion igniting and/or a new relationship starting, especially if you have been single for a while. Let the Taurus energy focus and ground you so you are able to remain balanced while the passion soars.
Open up to Abundance
The intuitive wisdom of Taurus can also help us with our finances. Taurean energy is not limited by the fear of not having enough, but instead inspires us to go out into the market place and create abundance. Use this fearlessness to trust your intuition if you are feeling strongly about something. A Taurean moon can boost our self-confidence and self-worth, bringing an inner certainty that nothing is impossible and a determination to follow through with our desires.
I will end this Lunascope with the wise words from Deepak Chopra:
“The universe operates through dynamic exchange… giving and receiving are different aspects of the flow of energy in the universe. and in our willingness to give that which we seek, we keep the abundance of the universe circulating in our lives.”
