Sabian Symbol for Taurus 4: A Pot of Gold at the End of the Rainbow!
A New Moon is always optimal for making change, getting out of a rut and planting
seeds for the future. The Moon, as she appears to us is growing in strength and appearance. This resonance brings us the energetic imprint of a new lunar cycle.
This New Moon in Taurus sits close to International Earth Day, celebrating Taurus’s themes of bounty and fertility, our personal and collective resources and what we own or attract for ourselves.
Last year when Uranus made it’s final ingress in Taurus- (to last till 2025) many Astrologers predicted rising issues with food production, economic structures and the earth’s resources.
It’s amazing to think that today as I walk through grocery stores with empty shelves and SEE how quickly our shaky food, health and economic structures are- that Astrology always seems to accurately reflect the archetypal themes of human life.
This lunation is supported by some interesting players, Uranus, the Revolutionary is closely conjunct in Taurus and Saturn the “old devil” squares us in Aquarius. Jupiter and Pallas Athene in late Capricorn also connect here, bringing us potential strategies to get out of a “tight spot”.
This new moon also highlights the need to find what your TRUE and AUTHENTIC values are. What does your “pot of gold” look like? Is it money and possessions? Or freedom, love, sensuality and self-rule?
We must all eat to live, we must have a healthy planet, but we need to do it together, and this means putting our energy and time into “seeding” our intentions into the world. Our New Moon is fertile with possibility. Even as it shakes up our security, it brings us new and sudden illuminations and perceptions, exciting innovations and “Revolution from the known”.
A Key to productively using this energy is not to focus on loss, or being stuck- but on thoughts, words and deeds that can bring fresh insights and energy to your present, as well as what we can all do to improve our personal and collective future.
On the 25th Pluto will Retrograde in Capricorn, allowing us to dig deep into the underworld of our authoritative structures in order to find the source and truth of sustainable power.
Next Month, Saturn, Jupiter and the Moon’s dispositor Venus follow in Retrograde. In fact, this will be the last New Moon in almost a year without major Retrogrades present.
SO- Follow your gut, take responsibility for asking for help from the Universe, a higher power, and learn also to trust your inner knowing to bring you guidance and illumination. YOU are the one you have been waiting for!
