New Moon in Taurus + Earth Day
New Moon In Taurus + Earth Day
This is my first blog post since we've entered this strange new world. At the beginning of the year I felt the need to go within, to not be as busy and I'm realizing it was to prepare me for this new reality. There's a lot of expectation to remain busy and to come out of this situation with a sense of accomplishment which just doesn't make sense to me. We're in a collective traumatic state and right now the best thing we can do for ourselves is pause. Allow yourself to not make the bed or paint the bathroom or do all the projects you've ever thought of doing. If you need a day to just sit and be with your feelings then that is okay! Reading a book could be enough right now, walking the dog or even just sitting outside for an hour, taking in the beauty that is around is all you may need in this moment.
Finding a grounded state and appreciating the moment we are in is the perfect way to kick off Taurus season. Taurus season began on April 20th and goes until May 20th. Taurus is ruled by Venus and is an Earth sign. Taurus is very grounded (Earth sign) but also loves beauty and appreciates the finer things in life (Venus). Taurus energy is very laid back and enjoys relaxing at home surrounded by things that make them happy. However, since the sign is represented by a bull it can also take charge and get shit done.
The New Moon in Taurus takes place today and is a perfect time to manifest on how you want your life to look for the next month. It's also Earth Day and since we've been on lockdown the Earth has been healing. A way you can honor both the New Moon and Earth Day is reflect on the world you want to see in your future. How will you give back to the Earth and honor the beauty and life she creates? What new intentions can you make to better your life and the world?
New Moons also allow you to reflect on your shadows. It opens you up to areas you need to change and gives you the opportunity for a fresh start. I always feel like the New Moon is a clean slate and I look forward to it because I know I'm starting new. I take my intentions and apply to my life moving forward and allow myself the grace to change who I am and how I want to live my life.
I always like to pull some cards to help me reflect on the message of the New Moon and maybe discover what I need to focus on. Biddy Tarot usually shares a New Moon spread with questions that can help prompt your reflection.
If you're looking for a way to stay connected feel free to comment on this post. Share your New Moon intentions or even just how you've been taking care of yourself during this difficult time. We're all in this together and what we're going through will take us to something better for the collective.
