At each New Moon, the sun and moon reside in the same zodiac sector. This means that the New Moon will fall within the archetype of the current sun season. The zodiac archetypes embody particular energies and characteristics that help us understand how the moon phase will affect us. Typically, the position of the moon influences our emotional experience.

Taurus seasons asks us to believe that life is a beautiful, abundant journey. Ruled by Venus, this archetype represents the sensory pleasures of life and a belief that you are worthy of pleasure, love, and abundance. Taurus is a fixed sign, which provides lasting energy – energy that is as strong and stubborn as a bull. Fixed signs can support us with focus, patience, and persistence. 

Taurus is also an Earth sign. Earth energy is physical, sensual, practical, useful, grounded, stable, and structured. The first four signs of the zodiac are personal signs, signs that help us understand ourselves. Taurus invites us to reflect on our relationship with the material and earth energy. 

New Moons mark the beginning of a lunar cycle and so this moon phase is all about intention setting and planting the seeds of change for your life. The New Moon in Taurus invites us to set goals related to building up our self-worth. A deep, embodied belief of worthiness can be a foundation from which we can believe we deserve pleasure, love, and abundance. 

Reflection

I invite you to create time and space today or over the next few days to practice embodying the energy of the Taurus archetype and to set an intention for this lunar cycle. We will share our reflections together in circle.

Write down what emotions and physical sensations you are feeling. What seems aligned with the energy of Taurus? What feels in opposition or resistant to this archetype?

Do you believe in yourself and your worth? If not, reflect on what you imagine it would feel like to believe in yourself and feel worthy so deeply and solidly that nothing could make you doubt yourself. From this place, how might your life be different? 

What is your relationship like with abundance and scarcity? When do you feel abundance? When do you feel scarcity? Do you spend more time in trust and abundance or fear and scarcity?

When do you feel secure and grounded? If staying grounded or accessing security is a challenge for you, what do you think you could do to access these energies more frequently and easefully?

Become still, drop inwards, and breathe through your heart centre. What is your desire for the next 28 days? Set an intention for this lunar cycle.
