Value, Honor, LOVE ... Taurus New Moon
Taurus themes center around our resources, worldly possessions, self-worth, the home, prosperity/finances and our global home. This Luna essence is peaceful, present, deeply intuitive and all knowing. Taurus creates from a place of inner quiet stillness, thrives in nature, the creative process, the mystery, the pleasures and the miracle of life.
When the moon is in Taurus, we may receive illuminations and new awareness around our financial stories, our relationship with food, our body identification, our access to resources and our relationship to mother earth.
As we shift away from the me/mine mindset, to the more expansive we/us collective picture, we will need to let our outdated, untrue, self-sabotaging stories fall away. The Divine Feminine aspect of ourself does not create from a place of lack, scarcity, competitiveness, or neediness. This essence doesn’t spend time or energy seeking the validation or approval of others, nor looks to others to define value or worth. This essence stands tall and empowered in her inherent knowning that there is always enough for all. She understands that she cannot miss what is truly for her. And is secure in the divine truth that she has always been, is, and will forever be … enough.
This aligned, authentic, awakened, heart-led way is what is required in order to merge with the elevated, uplifted universal vibration that is calling for us to heal and evolve.
New Moon is a time to imagine, vision and dwell in the realm of pure “no limits” potential. If you can dream it, you can create it. How do you honor yourself, create time for yourself and fill your own cup? Self-care like happiness, is each own our responsibility, not the work of another’s. When we take responsibility for ourselves, we reclaim ourselves.
Sustainable shifts are not possible by making surface changes; but come from a practice of checking in with ourselves, paying attention to what is true for us, taking action and showing up for ourselves and what we value. Getting intimate and curious with our body and what it’s trying to communicate and growing forwards through the steady inner work of questioning, listening, clearing, processing, shedding and healing.
Transformation comes from a vibrational shift in our energy. We literally radiate actualized change in our life from deep within.
Some ideas around how you might like to engage in Taurus Energy …
Slow down. Take the invitation to be a human “being”, rather than a perpetual human “doing”.
Reclaim your time, your attention, your creativity, your peace of mind. Create sacred boundaries around taking breaks and weekends away from your tech.
Play some music. Take a dance class. Learn how to play an instrument. Let music and movement be a portal to freedom and joy for your mind, body and spirit.
Pay attention to your intake. Food, media, self-talk, thoughts, environment, relationships etc. affect and influence your wellbeing (and your intuition). Be your own best ally, tend your body and your space and keep good company.
Spend time in nature. Lay your body on the ground and feel Mother Nature’s strength and stability hold and renew you. Pay attention and connect to the sounds, the beauty, the wonder, the miracle and the magnificence of our sacred earth home. Let the birdsong, the flower scents, the caress of the wind on your skin call you home. Replenish your own energetic, emotional and physical roots with self-care, rest, beauty and nourishment.
Get quiet. There is such opportunity for imagination, inspiration, messages to download, awareness to discover, creative expression to unfurl within the realm of stillness and deep listening.
Create ritual, whatever that looks like for you. You might like to prepare a sacred meal. Adorn your nightstand with fresh flowers. Soak in a luxurious candlelit, essential oils bath. Meditate on a sunset or sunrise. Pull cards around how this Taurus energy can support you. Gratitude journal around what is here now. Read a piece of poetry and let it transcend you to another realm.
Clean your home, your bedroom, your body as though they’re a sacred temple (because they are).
Journal around your relationship with prosperity and abundance. Consider how your financial “wellness” is connected to your self-worth and your perspective. What do you believe is possible for you? And how might you edit the narrative to reflect your potential?
Have an intimate conversation with your heart, your dreams and desires, and listen intently to every precious detail.
Today opens an eclipse portal, and the energy heightens and amplifies these Taurean themes. Invite this 2-week cosmic opportunity to serve as an energetic reset.

To re-acquaint and reconnect to what you value most, and riff on how you can choose more of that for yourself.
This new moon is an ideal time to plant seeds for tomorrow’s bounty. Allow any supportive allies, resources, practices, shifts, awareness and intentions to serve as a beautiful foundation to build upon over the months ahead.
