SUN + NEW MOON IN TAURUS ♉︎

WHEN: 4 May 2019 – 10:45pm GMT (5 May 08:45am for my fellow Aussies)

The Taurus New Moon is known as the Mother’s Moon, the Milk Moon or the Flower Moon – it is all about rebirth, fertility, and growth, where intuition and sense of identity will be in perfect alignment.

It is an opportunity to refresh your finances, your love relationships, and most importantly your love relationship with yourself.

Taurus season is all about the senses – anything sensual and all things beautiful – which will be encouraging us to connect with our earthiest, most indulgent, sensual, pleasure-seeking self, while luring the seductive energies, if only we are open to it whole-heartedly.

With Earth and Fire elements being more prominent during this time, inspiration and passion can bring our dreams into reality. Time for big manifestations to come to life!

Honour Your Throat Chakra.

Taurus rules the throat and speaking out, take this time to heal these areas of the body. Use your voice as expression through singing, teaching, chanting, healing hypnotherapy and more.

Reach for your blue coloured crystals (such as Lapis Lazuli and Celestine) to help with speaking your truth and regulating your throat chakra.

 

ASTRO-MOVEMENTS

Our Father of Time, our Lord of Karma Saturn goes retrograde in Capricorn until September. This is a five-month period where we are being asked to level up, work hard and become the masters of our goals with dedication and discipline. Saturn knows you have it in you, it’s time for you to see this too.

Expect big growth and development – but of course not without the growing pains as the Moon squares Saturn, and both Saturn and Pluto go retrograde. Endure and trust as the Moon in Taurus is working with Neptune for the purpose of your dreams becoming a reality.

Chatty Mercury is in a favourable aspect with Jupiter, bringing about joyful interactions, inspiring conversations and networking opportunities our way!

Mars in Gemini may bring forward anxious energy, leaving us feeling eager to let go of the past and move forward. Keep in mind there is likely still work to be done setting foundations for that future you are so eager to move into. Focus on establishing solid ground to avoid mistakes.

We may be feeling some friction and tensions in communication with the Moon joining Mercury in Aries. Just remember, keep it kind hearted, even when you’re feeling frustrated or disappointed.

RITUAL

We recommend doing your New Moon ritual a day or two after the New Moon instead of during.

 

  • Create an Altar

Making an altar space is one of the sweetest ways to call in Spirit (whatever that means to you — the Divine Force, the Universe, your Ancestors, Magic).

The act of creating an altar is itself sacred as it slows you down it brings you into the present moment.

I love to think of the elements as I create my altar –

I lay down beautiful fabric, gather the incense and candles. I bring flowers, stone and wood honouring the Earth element. I honour the Water element and bring a bowl of water to my altar, perhaps sweetened by flower petals or lavender oil. I then play music or my singing bowl, honouring the Air and wind element necessary for sound (and of course, I breathe).

 

  • Open ceremony

How do you create sacred space? Simply by intentionally thinking or speaking it into existence.

You can thank your Ancestors and Guides, the Earth, and all the elements for guiding and protecting you.

Open with gratitude, really feel into it. Say thank you and ask for the permission to open up your sacred space.

Wait for the feeling of ‘yes’ and then declare that the channel is open.

 

 

  • Write & Express Your Dreams!

Write and then speak/ express that which you want to create.

This time is about creation, it’s about the sprouting of seeds, the blossoming of your dreams and, the Universe hears and witnesses you.

When you take the dreams that have been brewing within you and write them down – you are answering your calling.

When you speak them aloud (3 times is magic!) or express them through your body or art, the power of your dreams magnify.

Having a witness there can empower these dreams even further.

When we express or speak our dreams, we begin to call them closer to us and believe in them.

Then, watch how the Universe works to bring your dreams into being for and with you.

 

  • Celebrate

Close your ceremony with a heart meditation or some laughter!

Eat some sweet breads, honey, hard boiled eggs and drink sweet wines or teas (symbols of new life!).

Be grateful. Be grateful for the new warmth and light that is headed our way.

 

  • Rise with the Sun

The next morning, rise with the sun with a heart full of gratitude. Wake and say Thank You!

If you can, rise with the sun at least once a week to feel into your gratitude for your life, and for all that the Sun brings to you.
