This month’s New Moon in Taurus highlights 24 degrees of the sign and crests at 6:48 AM EST (add one hour for DST). This New Moon shares this day with Uranus entering Taurus at 10:22 AM EST, and Mars entering Aquarius at 11:18 PM EST. If this seems like a busy astrological period — it is indeed! Of course, the major aspect is Uranus entering Taurus for its seven/eight year stay — Retrograding back into Aries on November 6th and not returning to Taurus until March 6th 2019 and remaining in Taurus until April 25, 2026. In addition, Mars will enter the sign Aquarius late in the day — so we have a very “Fixed” aura in the atmosphere.
If your birthday or a major Planet conjuncts 24 degrees of Taurus this is a brand new lunar cycle for you — bringing more emotional elements, a need for more beauty in your life, and more determination to reach your goals. The Planet Uranus will probably have some unexpected input as to how things play out in all of our lives — check your Zodiac Chart to see what House Taurus lives in to prepare yourself for some amazing ongoings.
Taurus rules finances, stability, real-estate holdings, beauty, patience, bullheadedness, determination, loyalty, and the status-quo. Taurus really doesn’t like change — preferring to stay with what they know, what they can control and keep close to themselves. Usually thought of as a “salt-of-the-Earth” persona — they are usually dependable and trustworthy.
Observing all of the changes taking pace on this day we can prepare our wish list knowing that things written today will be set-in-stone — so make sure your affirmations, wishes, desires and dreams are rock solid, and what you need to improve your life and the lives of your loved ones.
Jupiter in Scorpio is tweaking our desire for security with our money, and is giving us the opportunity to dig deep within find what we truly need to make our lives more secure and happier. Perhaps you may find that your most precious possession is Time! Think about how fast this year has flown, and how quickly children change, and how treasured those moments are, when we are spending it with our loved ones. Time is the one element we cannot get back — each day is a gift — we must try to enjoy every minute!
Mars moving into Aquarius will make us more inclined to want to do what we want and to do it when we want! We want to free ourselves of any limitations, be free to act as we wish, and to find our personal bliss!
Since the New Moon is in Taurus, we can concentrate on our money issues, our closest relationships, and the need for beauty in our lives. Being a Fixed/Earth sign, Taurus doesn’t care for change, any absurdity, and is flummoxed by signs of stupidity. Solid, caring, trusting, and loyal — our Taurus brethren want only to be respected, allowed their space, and be able to protect their assets and to care for their loved ones.
In reflecting on your affirmations and wishes, you can concentrate on those Taurus ideals, but also anything that is bugging you about your life right now. Think about those things that would make a big difference in your life — job satisfaction — loving companion — new home — enjoying those modest and humble ideals that truly make our lives worth living.
The New Moon in Taurus crests at 6:48 AM EST (add one hour for DST), so you can write out your affirmations, wishes and dreams after this hour and for the next 24 hours for the most positive and potent power available. Give it to the Universe to help you help yourself.
