New Moon in Taurus - Stop and Smell the Roses

Tomorrow morning at 5:16 AM PT starts a New Moon cycle - this time in 6° Taurus. Taurus is a fixed Earth sign, celebrating the Love of Earth, the five senses, the physical realm and the body.

The time during New Moon can be used to set intentions for the upcoming month. Before we set intentions for this new month however, I recommend to reflect on the last Moon cycle in Aries and how it affected our lives.

Read here the post again about New Moon in Aries and see what you were able to implement into your life.

Think about the past month and ask yourself the following questions:

1. Have I done something new, something out of my comfort zone?

Here is my personal answer:

Yes. A few days ago I had a Blessing Way, a spiritual baby shower so to speak. Seven of us gathered together and held a ceremony, including singing and drumming, and other rituals. It was magical. I realized that I want to bring more of these spiritual gatherings into my life.

2. Did I assert myself when confronted? Did I stay true to myself?

Here is my personal answer:

Yes. I had times where I knew what was needed to be done and I went for it. For example, I could feel that my cat was about to cross over and I knew I want to be with him when it happens, and when my mom called me from upstairs because she was looking for something I told her that I can't help her right now. This was important because too easily I let myself get distracted from what I'm focused on. In this case, I was happy to state my thoughts and priorities because my cat friend Oreo crossed over while I was holding his paw and petting his fur. Read here the magical story.

3. Did I take care of myself? Maybe found a new way of giving love to myself?

Here is my personal answer:

Yes. I took time off when needed. I went on walks in the park and connected with Mother Earth. I spend time in meditation under a tree in our garden. I took relaxing baths and started the routine of dry brushing (read here the benefits of it).



After you've reflected on this past Moon cycle in Aries now is the time to set intentions for the new one in Taurus.

Taurus reminds us to stop and smell the roses. The energy is slow moving, steady and stable. It is grounding, connecting us to our roots, calming us down.

Taurus can be seen as the rock. No matter how crazy our environment might be, Taurus' energy stays calm and goes step by step, little bit by little bit, through any challenges.


What can you learn during this Taurus Moon cycle?


Being grateful for what you have

Taking your Time

Connecting to Mother Earth and your Body

Trusting yourself

Being Patient


Establishing Routines


Embracing your Self-Worth

Handling money with love

Staying strong

When situations arise during this upcoming month that trigger one or more of the above mentioned lessons, be aware and consciously choose to use the Taurus' energy of strength, patience and endurance.
