As the Moon begins a new cycle transitioning through Taurus, the cosmos reminds us to cut the Bull and do whatever it takes to fulfill our dreams, which is an indubitably tall order requiring us to:
- Quit bad habits and replace them with positive ones
- Cut ties with negative influences
- Clean up
- Get rid of anything that no longer serves us
- Be straight with ourselves about where we currently stand
- Accept how much work lies ahead
- Create a clear and concise plan to accomplish it all
Luckily, the Taurus New Moon is here to help.
Paying attention to lunar cycles is important. In astrology, the Moon rules emotions. Its phase along paired with the zodiac sign it’s transiting through shape the day for everyone.
Taurus’ influence on the Moon is strong, steadfast and stubborn. The Great Bull earned this reputation by knowing exactly what it wants and never settling for less. A universal lesson from the Taurus New Moon is that we can only manifest our dreams with a clear mind to bring a sharp image of exactly what we want into focus.
Earth signs like Taurus promote caution and realism, meaning we shouldn’t dilly dally or take the day off under a Taurus Moon. Taurus is a fixed zodiac sign, attributed with determination, persistence, and rigidity. If 2019 hasn’t been your year, the Taurus New Moon says it’s not too late to turn things around and make it the best. It’s just going to take with a little patience, a dash of discipline and an extra serving of hard work.
Set your alarm. Wake up early. Focus on breathing. If you’re a crystal enthusiast, wear amber or black tourmaline. Listen to your favorite music. Take your time. Taurus reminds us that slow and steady wins the race.
Be mindful of everything you do and approach anything you feel today with curiosity. Not all emotions can be defined. Accept the radical nature of the human condition. Leash the mind to prevent it from getting ahead of itself or running back to the past.
The only time is now. Remain in the present and, most importantly, get outside. Fresh air will do us all some good. Enjoy as much of it as you can.
For those of us who follow lunar cycles, we know New Moons are used to plant the seeds of intentions. But the Taurus New Moon takes that to a new, literal level. May 4, 2019 is going to be the best day of the year to plant annual flowers or vegetables bearing above-ground crops, according to the Farmer’s Almanac. Gardening by the Moon is a great way to plan a successful harvest – and feeling the Earth in your hands is a great way to promote grounding.
Nourish & Nurture
Health is an important topic today – mental, physical and spiritual. Just like the seeds we’ve planted, our bodies and intentions need TLC. Make time to exercise (working in the garden counts.) Eat clean and don’t settle for less. Homemade cooking is powerful magic at this time. Remember to give thought and care to your intentions, just like your plants. Feed them. Water them. Sing to them. Give your plants, your dreams, and your self exactly what they need to flourish.
The Taurus New Moon will be exact at 5:46 PM on Satudray, May 4, 2019 but its energy will be felt for days before and after.
