The new moon in Taurus brings a burst of manifesting energy, a seed point for tangible growth. As the sign of fixed earth, Taurus encourages us to connect to our physical senses and to honor the gifts and energies of our bodies. Taurus reminds us that we are embodied beings, able to make and build and create.
The new moon is always a good time to set our intentions for the coming lunation, to mindfully consider how to align ourselves with the moon's energy as she waxes to full, increasing the energy available to us. A new moon in Taurus is a good time to set intentions around physical practices such as eating more mindfully and paying attention to how we move our bodies. This is also a good time to begin creative projects, especially those which allow us to express our inner selves using the gifts of our hands, minds and senses.
Taurus is the builder of the zodiac and it's said that projects started under a Taurus new moon will be enduring. This sign of the zodiac is concerned with manifesting material security and building a solid foundation for our growth. Our homes and our work are highlighted under this sign and we can draw on new moon in Taurus energy to help us if we are seeking a new job or making improvements to our home. This is a very practical sign, reminding us that spirituality is not just about transcending everyday reality but about living it more fully.
Taurus is also the gardener of the zodiac and we are called to pay attention to what we are cultivating at this time. Whether we are literally planting seeds and growing our own food, or nourishing a creative project or a phase of personal growth, the Taurus new moon asks us to focus on slow steady progress. Taurus is one of the most patient signs of the zodiac and teaches us the importance of taking time, especially in today's fast paced world.
Taking a mindful walk in the woods or by the sea is a wonderful way to celebrate the new moon in Taurus and align ourselves with her energies. As we walk, we can focus on how our body is moving, the sensations of our feet touching the earth, the feel of the wind in our hair. Opening our senses to the sounds and scents around us allows us to connect more deeply, so that the pressures of daily life fall away and our minds begin to clear, returning us to a sense of oneness with the world around us. Spending time out of doors and opening ourselves to the healing powers of nature restores our inner calm and reminds that humans are a part of the earth, not separate from it.
