The New Moon in Taurus takes place on Wednesday April 26th, at 6°. The Moon feels great in Taurus because she is exalted in the Earthy sign of the Bull.
The New Moon in Taurus doesn’t make major aspects to other planets. An unaspected planet is not “influenced” by any other planets and is “free” to manifest its energy – so the New Moon will serve us with pure Taurus energy at its fullest.
Taurus is very connected to the Nature, to the Earth, to the Life Force. Taurus is a very stable and grounded energy and it will ask us to create solid foundations for the future.
Imagine the Zodiac without Taurus. Let’s say you want to build a new house. In Aries, you come with the idea, with the insight. You are going to build a house. And then in Gemini you start to get all excited and build rooms here and there, some balconies and maybe a roof top terrace. But without the Taurean energy, your building will collapse (that’s if you start building it in the first place!). We all need the solid foundations in our life without which nothing can be done. Will all need Taurus.
The New Moon in Taurus will invite you to get in touch with what is real, what can be touched, smelled and tasted. Now it’s time to experience, enjoy, touch, taste and feel the world around you. Focus on your connection with the Earth. Go out and spend some time in Nature. Walk through the grass barefoot, hug a tree. Appreciate the Mother Earth. Connect spiritually with the nature.
The sabian symbol for this New Moon is “The woman of Samaria at the ancestral well”, symbolizing the meeting of the traditional past with the creative spirit of the future.
The sabian symbol speaks about the New Testament episode when Jesus meets with a Samarian woman at a well and reveals his messianic nature for the first time.
“Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again, but those who drink of the water that I will give them will never be thirsty. The water that I will give will become in them a spring of water gushing up to eternal life”.
The woman said to him:
“I know that Messiah is coming. When he comes, he will proclaim all things to us”.
And then Jesus said to her:
“I am he, the one who is speaking to you”.
We start to understand the meaning of this sabian symbol if we take a look at the ruler of this New Moon. The ruler of the New Moon in Taurus is Venus, now at 29° in the Water sign of Pisces.
The 29° Pisces is a very spiritual degree, the last degree of the Zodiac. A new life cycle is on the horizon as the old cycles dissolves. But an old order is never open to a new Revelation until it opens to the power of Love. Venus is exalted in Pisces and in the terminal degree of the zodiac, signifying the undying, everlasting power of love.
Venus has been floating for a long time near Chiron, the wounded healer. Over the last weeks, she has sacrificed her old values, her old beliefs, gave her heart away, and is now ready to be born again.
Keep your heart open to the revelation that is about to come. Make sure you are tuned in with yourself so you can recognize it when it comes. And just like the Samarian woman, leave behind the ancestral realm of the past and embrace the New fully and completely.
The revelatory nature of this New Moon becomes more and more apparent when we look at the conjunction of Mercury retrograde with Uranus. Uranus is the higher octave of Mercury and a meeting between the two always brings breakthroughs and revelations.
Because Mercury is retrograde, you now have the chance to break free from an old thinking pattern. The things you discover will surprise you and shake your belief system.
Mercury and Uranus also trine Saturn – ensuring that all your breakthroughs and brilliant ideas have a solid foundation to grow in the following months. Moreover, Mercury is in mutual reception with Mars in Gemini, making sure you will act upon our ideas. The New Moon will bring you the clarity and the discernment you need so you know what to do next.
Look where 6° Taurus falls in your chart. The house where this New Moon lands is the fertile soil you can ground yourself in. Also look if the New Moon OR Venus at 29° Pisces make any aspects to your planets or angles – this will give you further insights on what to expect from this magical New Moon.
