Taurus New Moon- Stop to smell the roses

For someone with very little earth in their chart, I have to say; I really love a Taurus New Moon. It reminds me to stop and smell the roses, literally and metaphorically, to connect with the physicality of life and to bring some consciousness to the incredible gifts of our five senses.

This New Moon occurs in Australia on the 20th of May at 1.53 am and in the US EDT at 11.54 am on the 19th. The New Moon falls in late Taurus at 28 degrees. See where 29 degrees of Taurus occur in your chart to see which area of your chart will be activated by this New Moon.

A reminder also that this New Moon will likely be felt most profoundly by our other fixed signs, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius

Accentuating the Sun's energy in Taurus, this New Moon highlights our base nature selves, making us feel secure, grounded, and in touch with our physical senses and the practical realities of everyday life.

The New Moon is always about setting intentions and beginning new cycles. We are ending the Aries New Moon phases and moving into the Taurus New Moon Phase.

This is a very harmonious New Moon as it receives positive aspects from Mars, Neptune and Pluto. We can work positively with these energies to bring forth active, spiritual change and rejuvenation in the areas associated with Taurus. For this reason, we should be able to tap positively into our energy reserves and motivations for spiritual connection, especially regarding nature, which in turn may make us feel emotionally transformed on some level.

On a mundane level and with Jupiter having moved into Taurus recently, this is an excellent New Moon to set new intentions around our relationship with material resources and money. We can use this New Moon to set intentions for actively making plans to get our finances under control, start a new saving scheme, reassess how money and resources are working for or against us and make the relevant changes required.

Taurus reminds us to simplify our lives where possible. This is the sign that craves life's simple pleasures and alignment with our senses.

We can use this New Moon to remind ourselves of our physicality and seek new ways to ignite our five senses. Taurus is also about pleasure seeking. With harmonious aspects from Mars, Neptune and Pluto, we can actively set positive intentions to connect with earth's beauty and richness, appreciate our physical bodies, and derive profound and possibly transformative realisations. Taking time to not only indulge the senses but consciously being aware of what comes us for us when we do, is a very positive potential outcome for this New Moon.

Setting new intentions around how we seek physical pleasure and derive meaning from this, where we may have been holding back, and how we can positively make changes here is a great way to tap into this New Moon energy.

Bring consciousness to not only the health benefits of the food we eat but also the sensuous elements associated with food, sight, smell and taste. We can also bring conscious awareness to the food we put into our bodies. Finding ways to bring new intentions to our sensory relationship with food is also a positive action.

We have an opportunity now to make deep and spiritual connections with nature, to be reminded of the wonder of the natural world and all it can offer us, especially in terms of feeling rejuvenated by it.

During this New Moon period, find some time to take a walk in nature but also to stop and smell, touch and find gratitude for the earth. Take your shoes off and feel the earth under them, being reminded of the magnificence of this planet.

Taurus is also about being real, being in the world with your feet firmly planted on the ground; therefore, one can use this New Moon energy for any practical, focused goals. We can use this energy to ground and solidify any of the goals we may have actively set during the Aries New Moon phase. This is the time to bring some form and grounded intention around our ideas.

The day after this New Moon, Mars, our planet of action, energy and intention, moves out of watery Cancer and into Firey Leo. This will offer us some extra fuel to activate our desires and intentions, but there will be more on this soon.

Meanwhile, enjoy setting intentions around the areas associated with Taurus. Cook up that delicious dish, play that music loudly, get out the essential oils and embrace and enjoy the magnificence of nature.
