New Moon in Taurus

It’s a New Moon in Taurus on April 22, 2020 at 10:26 pm ET

How appropriate, a New Moon in Taurus on Earth Day.

A New Moon in Taurus emphasizes a stronger connection to nature, to feel more embodied in the physical world and emotional renewal by getting in touch with your senses.

When the New Moon arrives and meets the Sun in Taurus, it signifies new awareness of what you want and deserve in life. With Uranus in Taurus this can be a revolutionary time.

Taurus is a creative sign that does the work to achieve results. The New Moon in Taurus is a great time to ask yourself, “What do I want to manifest in this world?” It is wise to make a list of what you want and to start new projects that require time and effort.

Taurus is concerned with values and what you own and prioritizes financial security. It is a good time to consider how you can flourish and grow financially when the New Moon is in Taurus. Whether you want to start looking for a new job, create a financial plan, or start a new career path, making more money is in focus now.

If you have been busy and neglecting a healthier connection to your physical body and the material world around you this is a great time to create a new relationship with the earth, your body and nature. Organic foods are recommended while appreciating flavors, textures, and fragrances the natural world has to offer for you to enjoy. This is a great time to stop and smell the flowers to feel renewed. New wellness routines, getting a massage or giving yourself a beauty treatment is also recommended.

Taurus rules the throat and appreciates music at its finest. This is a great time to sing to your hearts content. If you like to meditate, try vocalizing mantras like Om and see how healing they can be for your body, mind and spirit. If you need to release tension in your body, try using your voice to express how your body feels as you move and dance to get that deeper connection to your being.

This can be a great time for collectors to reconsider their attachments and value of material goods. It’s a great time for spring cleaning. Some of us may want to clean out the old, to make room for new, or take a more minimalist approach, valuing only our most prized possessions and getting rid of what we no longer want. There can be a sentimental quality where material items we’ve held onto bring up memories and nostalgia.

Venus, the goddess of love, rules Taurus is in Gemini now. New attractions are likely with a New Moon in Taurus. This is a great time to create new bonds or strengthen existing relationships to people that matter to you. New romantic encounters can bring a sense of freshness and vitality. If you are already in a committed, loving relationship a new appreciation for the one you love is likely to grow now.

Success! You're on the list.

Sun in Taurus

The Sun enters Taurus on April 19, 2020 at 10:45 am ET.

The Sun is in Taurus until May 20, 2020 at 9:48 am ET.

The Sun enters Taurus every year at this time as part of the cycles of nature.

The Sun in Taurus says, “I want,” representing the desire to experience and connect with the physical world around you with your five senses.

With the Sun in Taurus we are reminded of the importance of getting back in touch with the earth element. If you often live with your mind in the clouds, and over thinking life, this is the time to become more aware of the world around you, and your physical body.

Spending time in nature does wonders for the body and mind. This is also a great time to learn more about how to live in nature and what is edible in your natural environment. There are a lot of videos on YouTube about how to forage for food, growing your own food, gardening, living off the land, and how people manage to live off grid.

The Sun also corresponds to divinity. For thousands of years people have revered the sun light as a symbol of spiritual divinity, and for some, it has literally been worshiped as The Divine. The Sun also represents our self, our personality and identity.

Taurus loves the pleasure principle and is a sensual sign. Through our relationship to the physical world we can become more conscious and even enlightened to the meaning of life. This is the time to bring body, mind and spirit, in harmony together.

When the Sun is in Taurus it is time to enjoy the fragrance of blooming flowers, the sunshine on your skin, the sights of trees budding, the taste of delicious wines, organic fruits and vegetables, the sounds of birds chirping… It’s time to experience the physical world of life more attentively with your senses.

Tree huggers and environmentalists will feel like they are in their element. Health and wellness are also highlighted now. Exercise in natural environments is recommended. If you’re into Yoga, or would like to begin a new practice, this would be a great time to start practicing Sun Salutations to get in touch with your body and the light within you and around you. Walking barefoot and feeling textures and sensations of the world around you can heal and enlighten.

The earth element is most often stable. There is a permanence to the earth element that remains for long periods. It takes thousands of years for land and rock to change even slightly. If you visit a distant location, years later, it is usually easily recognized as it is often nearly the same as when you were there before. This is also recognized in the permanence of architectural structures, especially those made of stone.

Taurus is also the builder and reminds us that it takes a lot of time, effort, practice and work to construct and establish and manifesting something of value in life.

This is a good time to have a look at your money matters and to consider financial security. Taurus likes what is tangible so money in your pocket feels more real than numbers on a computer screen, but Uranus is in Taurus now so we are moving toward a more technological, digital approach to money. Getting yourself a bit of physical gold would be fitting for the times. Getting your financial picture in order and taking responsibility for your income and expenses will help you feel more grounded and confident in your security.

As Taurus is also connected to home matters, this is also a great time for spring cleaning to free up and declutter your space so there is better flow and comfort. Take stock of all your material possessions and what you value to determine what it is worth to you during this period.

As the Sun transits through Taurus over the next month, take some time to enjoy the sunlight and natural world. Take breaks in your day to get outside and breathe in the air, and watch the birds perched on budding tree branches.

*NEW Venus in Taurus

Fresh from Venus in Aries, Venus brings attention to what we value and reminds us of how beautiful the material world is. This is treehugger and flower girl territory.

There is so much to be grateful for all around us.

We also have a Full Moon in fellow earth sign Virgo while Venus is in Taurus indicating a greater importance on our health and lifestyle routines.

Foods are more valued for their qualities now. Venus loves to connect the body with nature, so go organic and non-GMO and you will be better in tune with the cosmos.

The experience of the five senses that Venus is what Taurus loves most.

The act of working with textures, colors and scents makes cooking and preparing visually beautiful and delicious foods the perfect practice for Venus in Taurus. Appreciation for all your senses, especially enjoying natural surroundings, scents, and flavors of natural foods and fragrances of fruits, vegetables is highlighted.

Venus is the lover, and wants to experience pleasure in all ways.

A massage treatment is also recommended during this period to take care of your body and revitalize your well being. A beauty treatment, physical movement with passive and slow moving activities like graceful dancing, tai chi or yoga can ground your body and more in touch with the pleasures of the material world.

In all that you do, this is a time to be present and slow down a bit to enjoy smelling the flowers. Studies have also shown that looking outside at lush scenery is helpful for calming the mind and body of tension.

The Sun warming your skin, the fragrance of a flower, the fruits of the earth growing, the abundance of flavors, nourishment and energy is where the real wealth of life is found. It is the time we have in the material world and what we can do and experience while we’re here that is so precious and meaningful.

Wearing more earthy jewelry and natural stones is well suited to Venus in Taurus, but anything that makes you feel most beautiful is well suited. Singing is especially recommended as well.

This is an optimal time for artists and creative types to get out in nature to experience the colors, textures, fragrances, sounds, and flavors the world offers for great inspiration.

Of course, money is associated with the earth sign Taurus. We live in a world where money has become the primary focus of how a majority of us relate to and value the material world. Everything can have a price placed on it, and it usually does. Taurus is concerned with work and creating, money and security where money quantifies how we value the work.

With Venus in Taurus, it is a good time to ask yourself, “What is my real motivation in doing the work that I do and does that motivation satisfy the vision I have for my life?”

Whenever you are working, are you putting love into what you do? Do you enjoy the work you do? Are you doing what you would really love to do?

This brings into question, how much do you believe your skills, talents and abilities are worth? Are you living up to your potential? How do you envision your life as being truly wealthy?

It has been said countless times that when you do what you love, the money will follow. Though money is often a primary motivator for what people do, when you are sincerely interested in something and your goals go beyond money itself, then you tend to be more creative, driven and excited about what you are manifesting and contributing to the world. With an attitude of thriving at being you and doing what you love, more joy and pleasure is created and it often brings better results. A positive attitude builds on itself and opens doors.

Venus meets with Uranus in Taurus on March 8, 2020 at 3:37 pm ET. This brings our attention to our values and our hopes for the future, especially in regards to finances and our sense of security. We have Mercury Retrograde in Aquarius while Venus is in Taurus indicating we could see some surprise shifts in the economy and financial sector.
