Woman Carrying The Bull by Vladimir Fokanov, 2009
Every month’s New Moon is a good time to reset intentions and do an account of where you have been and where you wish to go. Mother Nature has given us this tool to help us find our purpose. No matter what spiritual background you come from, participating in this monthly exercise can help you connect to your soul’s purpose and plan steps to get closer to it. Give yourself permission to connect authentically with yourself this month. Since we live in a Universe that is constantly moving, each month the New Moon is at a different place in our Cosmos allowing us a chance to plant different intentions throughout the year. A new cycle begins this time in Taurus which is about seeing things from a grounded, practical, and realistic perspective.

WORD FOR THE MONTH
Appreciation, kindness, security, money, pleasure, patience, contentment, self-worth, boundaries, personal awareness, caution, and large-mindedness.
Happy New Moon in Taurus! This cycle provides us an opportunity to consider what we are blossoming into this spring season. Where do you wish to go? The nutrients available in a soil make a big difference in how seeds grow, just as our past presents the foundation from which we go next. Have patience, as with all gardens, growth will be slow, and you should prepared to nurture it over the long haul. Taurus energy brings us strength to build our world the way we want to no matter what is in our soil — not with luck, but instead hard work and will. Dig your feet into the dirt and like a bull make headway after your goals. Don’t forget to also have enthusiasm for everything you do as well. Taurean energy is confident and proud, after all, it was your hard work and effort that will get you there!
Taurus is represented by the bull, which are both fierce and gentle. Taming our inner bull can be tough. What riles you up? What turns you from being passive to unraged? Take notice. What does predictability mean in your life? What are your unconscious impulses directing you consciously? This New Moon in Taurus wants you to take notice of your brutal instincts. The color red sets off the bull’s anger. What is your color red? Being aware is the first step in controlling rage and being able to tame.
Through the fierceness of our personal will we can create abundance in our life. Believe that your needs will be met. You do have control. You are not helpless. You are courageous and capable. Repeat this mantra, or similar one, to help you ground to the energy of the Earth and remind yourself that you can be in control and that you are. Grab a hold of your life and make it sacred. Take breaks from being on autopilot and become more aware of what you attract.
Taurus is an earth sign, allowing us a great passage-way to grounding and release especially after all the recent transformational energies of previous New Moons. We have an opportunity to settle in and ground the energies that have been unearthed. Turn on music and let it guide your feet, imagining a release of energy into the ground. After, listen to your body and feel what its telling you. Taurean energy wants us to take care of our bodies, this capsule our soul is in for the time being. What do you feel beautiful in? Truly define it for yourself. Be creative and bond with your inner-self. It cannot wait for you to see it rawly without the lenses and conceptions of the outer world. It’s time to put down your heavy load and heal your body. You do not need to carry that impossible weight of society’s issues, or someone else’s, on your shoulders. Humanity is currently diseased with selflessness. Taurus is about having so much self-love that your gratitude and appreciation for the world becomes tangible. The universe is saying to slow down, stop, listen, and think about your needs and everything else will fall into place. Rest, relaxation, and simple pleasures may be the best way of working with the healing energy that Taurus brings.
This all helps us to ensure that we have created a solid foundation before leaping ahead. That’s what Taurus energy is all about and will allow you to go with the flow and not rush, but instead, find comfort and contentment with your current situation. Fully appreciate what you have already as the foundation for what’s to come next.
As always, a drop of wisdom - preserve and protect our beautiful planet, instead of take it for granted.
With light and love,
HOW TO MAKE A NEW MOON LIST:
Gather paper and a pen, pencil, marker or other type of writing utensil.
Review the focus areas for this month and begin to think about how they apply to your personal and professional life.
Write a list of what your hopes, dreams, goals, priorities, wishes, and prayers are for that moment. Typically no more than 10 is recommended. Be very specific, or extremely vague.
Review last month’s list and revise them on this month’s list, if necessary.
Place your notes somewhere safe and special to you. Some tape them to a window, under a lit candle, or leave them in their notebooks on their desks. Create the space that works for you. Leave it there all month until the next New Moon.
Allow and have faith in the power of inter-connectedness in our universe to manifest your list.
