This New Moon in Taurus is different than the one we usually look forward to. Taurus influences us to let our self-indulge in pleasures be it getting a yummy massage or traveling to a beautiful landscape with friends, or going to our favorite restaurant. However, that is not available to do right now. The astrology of this time has been letting us know in its metaphorical kind of ways that life as we have known it would change and not go back. What we are being shown is it will take some radical thinking as we cultivate new thoughts and actions for our self, the Planet and all the children that come after us. We must find a way forward that acknowledges what is at hand. Not just take desperate measures to save our old pleasurable ways of life.
The zodiac sign Taurus usually brings us to a sensual time of calm grounded peace. It calls us to dig our feet deeply in and feel the pleasure of seeds sprouting up towards the sunshine of Spring. New life is beginning everywhere. But this year we are in a new land and we do not know what is sprouting. As modern people we have never experienced a pandemic before. And during this global pandemic we are all being asked to STOP, JUST STOP and prepare for a new life. We are all in this world together and we do not know where we are going. Nobody knows!
This New Moon in Taurus is conjunct Uranus. It is the planet of revolution and radical eruptions that explode. It is Not about deep seeding and pleasure. It just does not seem like a good fit with (Taurus) which is a fixed earth sign. Uranus just feels unwelcome during a seeding time. Yet it is mysteriously here. And as It is naked to the human eye, we feel the energy of the wild maverick that has broken lose. We also have Venus and Mars doing a dance in the sky right. Venus being the faster moving planet of the two is starting to go retrograde. It is slowing down, and preparing to STOP. Perhaps asking you to look back, now look again. See what is truly of value to you at this strangely radical time? What is honestly fertile in you? What right action that is simple yet powerful (mars) is being called up from your deeper self as you navigate through all these eruptions?
We know there is a new world emerging. We can feel it, but we cannot see it or touch it or even understand the full mystery and sacredness of it.
So what are we being called to do at this New Moon? This time of the month is about beginnings. It is the time of month to dream of all possibilities. What is possible from you that will trickle out into the World?
I am assuming that Most of us who are here tonight can agree that Mother Earth, Gia is a live Breathing being. It is a radical idea to the status quo of our culture, but what if disrupting Uranus is helping the middle world reality wake up to the truth that the Earth is a living breathing being in her on right and has a soul. We all feel the effects of the Earth self-regulating with all the earthquakes, wildfires volcanoes etc. working to come back into a balance. Uranus in Taurus may be reminding us that the earth is a live entity and may not be focused only on the wellbeing and happiness of HUMANS! We may not be the central concern of our Great Mother right now, we actually could even be the problem.
I am inviting us all to STOP JUST STOP and feel into the possibilities of our participation to help the globe flow in a balance healthy way. We have the opportunity as a collective to breath together and FOR each other and perhaps become humble again in respect to our great planet. Let’s see if the Moon will help us out as we plant our dream seeds and then rest our bodies as MJ helps carry our dreams out into the world through vibration of sound and love. It is time to trust something greater than our self to help us create our new world.
It is a time to open to all possibilities. To the magic of the ancient Earth, TO water, TO molten fire and TO the clean air that we all can breathe.
My New Moon wish is for the ability to let go of my old thinking, and of unnecessary ways that keep me stuck in an old world that is actually no longer here. May we all Release the patterns, models and theory’s that no longer work. And hope for a new way.
