This wonderful New Moon arrives beautifully in alignment with Earth Day. A gracious time of year while the Sun and Moon bask in the earthly, feminine and nurturing traits of Taurus. This astrological sign is a very mothering archetype giving us the chance to ground and softly reset with grace and strength.

New Moons are a platform for manifestation and planting intentions. This is a chance to implement what has surfaced in the past month which is very important in nurturing our own spirits as we move forward into another unknown period of 2020.

Shifts are taking place globally for every individual’s consciousness and it’s a very rare occasion. It’s advised to soak it all in, with respect to our own ignorance, and explore every aspect of curiosity and inner opinion that should be expressed. For we are the movement when we band together. A movement can not be started unless each person nominates themselves to participate. So what is it that you want to participate in as we advance on our journey through 2020? What does that intuitive participation look like for you? What have you been intuitively driven to do during your quarantine?

The sign of Taurus is receptive, passive, female, yin energy. Though the animal resemblance of Taurus is a male bull, we must remember that there is masculine and feminine within all of us. Cows are some of the most sentient beings in the animal kingdom. Female cows are incredibly attached to and protective of their offspring. The female energy of the Sun and Moon in Taurus reminds us to be flexible and gently guided by our intuitions in caring for ourselves, our society, and our Earth. However, like your mother when she’s protective of her kin, the Taurus Bull will use its strong headed horns to fight.

There has been and will be grief, loss, sudden change, confusion, and confinement. But the female fighting aspect of Taurus keeps us flowing through the experience with compassion for ourselves and our loved ones.

“And yet, the New Moon is also in square aspect to Saturn, reminding us of that need to focus on inner stability as the waves of change continue to roll through our experience…

Saturn is in Aquarius; the planet of difficult lessons in the air sign of the water bearer teaching us to remain fluid through the changes we are experiencing. Activity in society as we know it will decrease yet we have been learning how to increase our inner drives in new, more nurturing, and protective ways. Aquarius is a community and volunteer oriented archetype. These lessons will teach us how we can better serve ourselves which ultimately better serves our community.

With this New Moon in earthly Taurus, square Saturn in Aquarius- Manifest the things you would like to see continue throughout your life after the storm of the pandemic passes. Truly absorb what it felt like to relax and not be obligated to go anywhere. Dig into something new that you’ve learned about yourself. Discover how you’ve readjusted to serving your needs. Going inward on the New Moon, we can understand the changes neccessary to bring forward as a reprogramming on our journey to maintain a better mental, emotional, and spiritual health.

On a global societal scale, how can your reprograming or new feelings be a contribution to impacting others in your community? Maybe our reprogramming ripple effect will vibrate out into the world through communities, the internet, and into countries across the world.

As we begin to rework life as we know it, the Earth has begun to rework her strengths in clearing out toxic gasses and pollution. Her animals are experiecing quieter and less impacted environments which will result in ecosystem relationship alterations we may not be aware of yet.

Essentially, many of us are fighting to protect each other and our globe. However, that fight doesn’t stem from anger or resentment. It is stemming from a place of love, care, and ambition to be humanely and consciously operable. These nurturing traits [of Taurus] start from within: our selves, our homes, our relationships. These recently explored traits will have an immense impact on the way we care for ourselves and others moving forward.
