Yummy New Moon in Taurus!
Taurus New Moon, Wednesday April 26 (5:16am PST)
Taurus and the moon get along quite well, in fact, they are old friends. In ancient times the moon and earth goddesses were associated with the bull, inspiring ritual and celebration. Look at the glyph for Taurus, a circle with a set of horns resembling a crescent moon atop it’s head.
Taurus is an earth sign, providing a stable container for Luna’s watery, emotional energy. In turn, Luna waters Taurus’s fixed earth and sometimes stubborn rigidity. Taurus is a “feminine” sign, and its ruler is Venus—the Goddess of Love, Relationship, and pleasure.
This new moon is a time to welcome and embrace Mother Earth and all of her earthly pleasures. Taurus is the most sensual sign of the zodiac, encouraging us to get in touch with our five physical senses—sight, smell, taste, touch and hearing.
Celebrate what brings you pleasure. This could be cooking your favorite foods, and sharing them with others, or enjoying them yourself. Partaking in an indulgence like aroma-therapy or massage; or investing in a purchase, something that you’ve always wanted but never gave yourself permission to own. Or getting romantic with someone! It’s all good.
This is a New Moon, which also offers the opportunity to purge the past and let go of what no longer serves. All the more room to celebrate your life and release anything that doesn’t serve your highest good.
