About This Taurus New Moon…

  • Mars in Cancer sextile Uranus in Taurus
  • Sun/Moon in Taurus sextile Neptune in Pisces, conjunct Black Moon Lilith
  • Mercury in Gemini trine Saturn in Aquarius, conjunct the North Node.

A New Moon in Taurus signals a fresh start on planet earth.

It’s an ideal time to plant seeds and set intentions with ritual (see my top tips, here).

What’s more, long-term shifts, changes and alterations are now easier to assimilate or identify, as a syncing in the stars brings harmony – fast-moving players in the skies sync with slow cycles of momentous impact…

Moon appears in grounded earth sign Taurus with the Sun and Uranus, and this trio of celestial bodies ‘play nice’ with those in water: Neptune in Pisces, and Mars in Cancer. Planets in earth and water are aligned, making for fertile soil and momentous impact…

Sun & Moon are harmonising with Neptune (21/22º), and Mars with Uranus (11º)…

To consider what’s being seeded at this time of dark & stillness it’s necessary to look back, to understand what’s previously blossomed beautifully, in times gone by.

We now stand in the realms of the tangible: food, finances, fashion and real-world sustenance but many methods we use to build, develop, feed, farm and trade are outdated, ripe for innovation and change.

We’ve to invent new matter and ways to deal with what’s in stock…

As this lunation enjoys harmony with omniscient Neptune and radical Uranus, we might imagine what grows will be truly remarkable…

As a wonderful bonus, the luminaries are perfectly aligned with Neptune in your 12th house (and watery Pisces) during New Moon, lending a touch of serendipity to intentions set.

The Sun-Neptune connection could heighten hopes, dreams, artistic and spiritual sentiments; the bold, vital grounded Sun imbued with the soft enigmatic waves of the illusionary planet, [boundless Neptune].

You could be in the mood to open the floodgates on spending, or feeling a visionary potential, attuned to money manifestation and your role.

Relationships… Venus and Mercury in Gemini make for an enticing social influence, inviting you to participate, engage and integrate with interest among peers and contacts.

It’s absolutely a time to contemplate your position – from the role you uphold to earn a living, to way you build, develop and grow what you have, and sustain your person – your material being.

It’s easy to use your intuition, a selfless approach and your charitable nature to make gains or feel good about what you do today thanks to Neptune, note too that Mars in Cancer is aligned with Uranus in Taurus – changes to the ways you’re compensated could now be felt underfoot and within.

Relationships… Our astrological King and Queen, the Sun and Moon now appear in the sector of closure – your blind spot, the twelfth house of selfless acts, self-undoing, and catharsis. Circumstances or your general focus and heightened emotions may steer you inwards.

Career… Venus and Mercury in your own sign make for a self-automating sensibility – coherent, elevating attention towards your interests, character, look and persona.

However, the New Moon points out ways you might recalibrate offline, rehabilitating in solitude, quiet or a gentle retreat.

For example you might like a partner that wines and dines you, but ‘home’ to you means a chic, streamlined, healthy place of purity (no heavy pasta!) you might be involved with a strong, supportive hunk that loves to cuddle but you need space and to address certain ancestral trauma before you let him in; you might attract a stable, traditional type, but have far more progressive notions about family and alternative nesting or decor!
