New Moon in grounded, earthy Taurus on Tuesday May 15th, 2018 - asks us to slow down + review where our life is truly reflective of our Soul + where it is not. We’re supported in the surrender + release of structures, habits + relationships that feel out of alignment with our truth. Things may start to crack due to internal pressure or external events may threaten our stability. It might look as though things are falling a part, but don’t scramble to piece back together what no longer serves you. Trust in the invitation to restructure + birth new foundations that are in alignment with your true values.
Saturn (responsibility), Mars (action) + Pluto (transformation) are all in Capricorn, the sign of structure - providing practical, realistic support as we focus + rebuild a stronger, truer foundation. Similarly, these planets create added internal pressure on areas of life where we refuse to let go or make necessary changes.
Taurus, an Earth sign, is associated with the natural world, values, the body + physical creation. In Taurus, we embody that which has come before in the spiritual + emotional realms. I always think of our reality here on Earth as the last realm of manifestation – like a dense echo of what has already manifested in lighter realms of spirit, thought + emotion. The noble intention of this New Moon asks us to tap into our deepest truths + make sure our life is an embodiment of soul.
Our work is in allowing time + space to slow down + connect with self on a soul level. To comb through our physical life + honestly recognize areas that are out of alignment. The universe supports us in this release + under this Taurus Moon we are grounded, courageous + pragmatic as we build a new foundation for a more authentic life.
I’m reminded of a favorite Anais Nin quote, “The day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”
With love + light,
