Sloooowing it Down!
New Moon in Taurus, Sunday May 17th at 9:13 pm PST!
The New Moon in Steady-Eddy, earthy, sensual Taurus indicates a time to slow down, ground and enjoy the simple pleasures of life. The Bull is ruled by Venus--the planet of love, beauty and relationships—prompting the desire to spend quality time with family, tribe, those you feel most in community with.
Taurus is connected to Mother Nature, the Goddess Gaia and all Earth Spirits, so this New Moon is opportune for communing with nature and celebrating her gifts. Because the New Moon is the beginning of a new lunar cycle, this is a time to focus on what you want to let go of and purge from your life. Consider doing a ritual where you connect with your inner Nature Goddess and ask her to show you the places in your life where you can find and develop your own natural abundance.
Taurus is all about celebrating the richness of life, and can be a bit decadent! So watch for over-indulging in your Earthly pleasures. Although New Moon’s are usually about initiation, in the lazy, chilled, smelling the roses sign of Taurus, you may not feel stimulated to get things going. No worries. Instead focus your energy on what brings abundance and enjoyment into your life.
All this slowing down, is a prelude to the upcoming Mercury Retrograde on May 18th, a time to regroup, reground, and surrender into the flow!
Stay tuned for more on the Mercury Retrograde, and in the meantime wishing you an fruitful and abundant Taurus New Moon!
