The New Moon Symbolises New Beginnings

It’s a time to plant and nurture new seeds and an opportunity to press the reset button with new ideas and new desires.  New Moons occur when the Sun and Moon conjoin, occupying the same degree of an astrological sign. This means that our core identity (Sun) and emotions and feelings (Moon), align.  As the Moon begins a new cycle, we’re invited to start one too. New Moons are known accordingly as times of initiation and intention-setting.

In the sign of Taurus  23/04/2020 (UK time)

Taurus is the Fixed (unmovable), Earth (practical) sign of the zodiac. Its polarity is Yin (receptive), and it’s represented by the Bull. Taurus is the “I have” sign of the zodiac.

Taurus is the first of the 3 earth signs, and is thought to be the most earthy of the three. They characteristically enjoy the physical world and engage life through their physical senses. What this means is that people of this sign are the most in touch with their senses. As such, they enjoy eating, listening to music, smelling sweet scents and revelling in luxurious fabrics.

Taurus, the Bull is the great stabilizer of the zodiac. Taurus individuals, although down to earth, practical, and methodical, with epicurean tastes, finely-tuned senses, and an eye for beauty, they can be painfully intransigent.

However, Bulls are usually kind, gentle, hardworking souls who are loyal, steadfast and although known to be somewhat frugal, they will generously lend a helping hand to family, friends, or even strangers.

Ruling planet Venus

Venus rules Taurus and Libra. Venus is known as the planet of love and represents harmony, love, attraction, prosperity and contentment.

This means that Venus’ influence is one of the most positive of all the planets. In Roman mythology, Venus was the Goddess of Love, embodying beauty, seduction, sexuality, and the female powers of persuasion.

Venus also governs loving relationships and not just in the physical sense, but also in the mental sense. She seeks to unite you with the significant people around you. Venus is all about pleasure, especially pleasure shared with someone else.

New Moon Rituals

People often come together in “moon gatherings,” where candles are lit, intentions are set. Some people may prefer a solitary ritual where they smudge their space with sage or diffuse essential oils, light a new candle, meditate and go deep within to discover what they want to bring into their lives during the next month. Your ritual could otherwise be as simple as sitting down in a quiet space and writing out your goals for the next 30 days.

Making Your Desires a Reality

After your New Moon ritual, sit with your desire for the next couple of days. Visualize what your life would be like when your desire becomes your reality. Experience what it would feel lie with all your senses – include smells, tastes, feelings, see and hear what you desire and intend. You might not know or understand how it will be accomplished but the New Moon phase is a time of trust yourself and your ability to make it happen.

Focus on something you can achieve

At the New Moon you could desire all sorts of things that are unattainable, so but be realistic, because what you focus on will only remain potential unless it’s something you can actually achieve.

Remember you always have free will regardless of planetary activity
