NEW MOON in TAURUS
APRIL 26th, 2017
…Could it be? Yes, it could.
Something’s coming, something good,
If I can wait!
Something’s coming, I don’t know what it is,
But it is
Gonna be great!
With a click, with a shock,
Phone’ll jingle, door’ll knock,
Open the latch!
Something’s coming, don’t know when, but it’s soon; Catch the moon,
– Stephen Sondheim [West Side Story]
You’ll catch yourself humming right along under the New Moon in Taurus. It carries such a contented vibe, softening the air and magically creating a fertile space to revel in all you do have –all your heart values most. Venus ruled Taurus simply loves to indulge in the sweeter side of life and has the desire and determination to acquire a lifestyle chock full of the good stuff. Lucky for us Venus ‘ current position makes this Moon even sweeter as it is exalted in dream-weaver Pisces. This is a one of the most potent wish-fulfilling New Moons of the entire year.
Traditional astrology insists there is no better time to make a wish than under a New Moon for good reason. Hearts and minds finally meet at center several weeks after the endings and intensities brought on by the last Full Moon. And so this is considered a time of rest – a time where we feel more integrated, whole and stable. The influence of Taurus further accentuates those qualities, at very least inspiring us on a quest for security within and without. It may not be found where we thought it would be – an surprising dash of ‘extra’ credited to the magic of a New Moon.
Aside from harmonious interactions with Venus there is even more positive planetary support cradling this particular lunar event. Transformative Pluto trines the Moon on the 27th encouraging greater focus on the no-nonsense version of ‘what is’. If you were feeling stuck there is a good chance you’ll have the courage to listen intently to your own voice of reason effectively unsticking yourself. Mars too will be pushing for more freedom to move strengthening individualistic tendencies.
This is no time to be shy folks. Go for the gold even if you have to get down to the bottom of lingering doubts. The gifts of patience, increased focus and a heightened sense of self worth (a salt of the earth recipe for success) are shared with everyone under this fabulous earth Moon.
