New Moon in Taurus
Tomorrow the New Moon will fall over Amsterdam at 13:47 in the earth sign of Taurus. This new moon will pave the way for some big cosmic shifts and changes. This is not just due to the new moon, but also because Uranus is shifting into Taurus on the same day!
A new moon always represents the end of one cycle and the beginning of another. So this is the perfect chance for you to make a fresh start. It can be a great opportunity to question some old habits or patterns that no longer suit you.
"Taurus energy is all about finding security and stability, especially when it comes to our health, family, and money." - Forever Conscious
Practical and well-grounded, Taurus is the sign that harvests the fruits of labor. They feel the need to always be surrounded by love and beauty, turned to the material world, hedonism, and physical pleasures. But with this new moon it can be hard to deal with change. That's why this new moon is all about allowing change to happen.
While seeking security from external things is sometimes necessary, true security and safety comes from within, and it also comes through accepting that nothing is ever guaranteed to anyone. There are things that always can happen, like suddenly move houses, getting sick, dealing with stressful situations at work or having financial difficulties.
That's why it's good to start accepting that change is a constant in life. Learning how to accept these changes coming your way is what this New Moon is all about! Taurus energy is there to help you feeling more stable in making your decisions. Eventually we might even say that being adaptable to change is what's essential for feeling stable! Here's a clear image to help you understand:
“The green reed which bends in the wind is stronger than the mighty oak which breaks in a storm.” - Confucius
From this perspective we can see that even the mightiest or biggest object may seem strong, but something that bends with the wind and is adaptable to change is much more stable.
Along with change, this New Moon in Taurus is also bringing a wave of creativity!
It's nice to see that whenever change is flowing in your life, this can also be seen as a time of heightened creativity. To adapt to change, we sometimes have to be creative with our solutions. It can open our mind to new ideas and create a new set of life circumstances.
During this New Moon it can be the perfect time to open yourself up to some writing. There are some beautiful meditations you can do to help you get the right mindset before your start.
A simple meditation excercise
- First of all we want to create the perfect, serene mood. Start with lighting a few candles and burn some incense. Put on some meditative music and make sure the whole vibe is peaceful and comfortable.
- Use a few crystals to help you tap into the universal energy. For example a Clear quartz stone is perfect! Adding Rose quarts and Amethyst will make it even stronger.
- Then start imagining a white/golden crown of light above your heart and try to let it fill your whole body.
- Take 20/30 minutes to write down whatever comes to mind. If you don't know how to start, it can be good to try thinking about your purpose and keep on writing from there. It can start with a simple question like: "What is my purpose?". Eventually this new moon energy will guide you to think about the things that you really want in life and to deal with all these changes.
Doing this simple meditation can help you getting the most out of the New Moon energy. It will help to find creative ways to deal with change in your life and come up with solutions to help you go further.
