New Moon in Taurus — article 2020

On April 22nd, at 10:26pm EDTthe New Moon becomes exact in 3.5 degrees of Taurus. This marks the beginning of a new Moon cycle.

As best as you can, get really quiet, and see if you are getting any new messages or ideas. If you are, harvest them, and fold them into any intentions you set for the new Moon cycle — I will talk about this process later in the article, and I’ll even give you the very best and most potent times for doing so 🙂  Click here to watch my video on the subject.

This New Moon aligns with Uranus in Taurus, squares Saturn in Aquarius, semi-sextiles Neptune in Pisces, and trines the South Node in Capricorn.

So, as you can see, lots of planets and points connect to this New Moon. This paints a complex picture, with opportunity for change, an atmosphere of diversity, a need to redefine “old” structure, an extra effort to connect with our compassionate heart and our imagination, and a sense of knowing that all is well, all of the time.

But before we go into all of these aspects in more detail, let’s first talk about the sign of Taurus:

This New Moon in steady, peaceful Taurus places more focus on our interactions with the physical world — you could say that we seek a healthier relationship with “matter”, one in which we are neither too attached, nor too disconnected from things on the physical plane — for example, our bodies, resources (such as money), and the planet we co-inhabit.

We are powerfully reminded to….

Do you have your Ascendant or any personal planets in 1-5 degrees of Taurus, Scorpio, Leo or Aquarius? If so, you may feel the effects of this New Moon more strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo; the Moon rules Cancer).

The New Moon is also the best time to set some powerful intentions for this month’s Moon cycle. This is best done soon after the New Moon becomes exact — and definitely not during a Moon void of course phase. So this month, the best and most potent time to set intentions would be between 10:26pm on April 22nd  until 8:43pm on April 24th — all of those times are given in US East Coast-time.

April 13th – 19th

A Common Vision for Life — Forecast for April 13th – 19th

 

This week’s headline items: Pluto’s Station phase intensifies on Monday; the Last Quarter Moon in Capricorn becomes exact on Tuesday evening; the Sun changes signs from Aries to Taurus on Sunday late morning.

There will be three Moon VoC phases this week: Tuesday evening (for almost 8 hours), Friday late morning (for almost 4 hours), and Sunday evening (for 7.5 hours).

Before we get to this week’s forecast, I’d like to mention:​

Now, this week’s Forecast…​ 

 

Monday, April 13th:

 Monday, the Moon remains in ambitious, goal-oriented Capricorn all day. It will journey there until Wednesday very early morning. We tend to be more realistic, serious, cautious; this can support practical endeavors and financial matters.

Our ambition surges and brings with it a need for structure and planning; when you add in the pragmatism this aspect supports, you can see how this could be a very productive time for business and long-term goals. Our reputation becomes very important to us.

As best as you can during this aspect, avoid “should-ing” on yourself. Take the pressure off, perhaps by saying “I am doing the best I can and that’s all I can ever do” 😉

Saturn is the ruler of Capricorn — and it will be transiting through Aquarius until July 1st, making this a great time to take a look at our visions for humanity, and at anything we would like to accomplish long-term within our communities (locally or online).

It’s also a great time to take a more serious look at our various networks and connections to like-minded people; as best as you can, be authentic about your affiliations: Do they truly resonate with your personal vision for the future — as it stands now, rather than what it was 5 or 10 years ago? Does participation in those groups or networks align with who you are now, and with where you see yourself 5 years from now? What do you truly want to commit yourself to?

Monday morning, we are invited to connect with like-minded people, and learn something new about our unique talents or value to the world. We are better able to connect to anything that involves a long-term commitment. We perhaps might also implement revolutionary business practices or government programs that support our values and make life tangibly more enjoyable.

Also on Monday morning, we are invited to make adjustments and find creative solutions to seemingly insoluble situations. As best as you can, make space for looking into some alternative exercise programs or holistic approaches to your personal projects and current long-term commitments. Compassion is key 😉

Monday late morning, we are in invited to make some inner adjustments. We feel uneasy or awkward and need to make a choice. Making this choice demands we develop inner awareness around two very different urges: on the one hand, the desire to connect and share ourselves with others — and on the other, the need to accomplish something out there in the real world, and to be responsible and self-reliant.

Also on Monday, Pluto’s Station phase intensifies until May 9th. It will come to a halt on April 25th in 25 degrees of Capricorn (more on that next week). As I mentioned last week already, when an outer planet stations, its energy gets more pronounced; this becomes even more pronounced when its Station phase intensifies.

We become even more aware of its impact on us — and this can sometimes cause discomfort. We are being asked to hang out with that discomfort until the planet’s energy has picked up speed again (around May 17th).

As best as you can, take a closer look at whatever is “in your face” for the next 5 weeks. Look for what might no longer be in alignment with your soul’s purpose (your deep, authentic, emotional Self) — especially in relation to long-term goals and your standing in society.

Ask yourself: Where am I holding on, out of fear? What habits, behaviors or fears are holding me back from feeling fully empowered from within? What would it look like, if I was fully aligned with my Soul-purpose? How would it feel?

When we confront our fears we very often discover hidden gifts and strengths. Do you have an Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in…

Now, this week’s Forecast… 

 

Monday, April 6th:

Monday, the Moon remains in detail-oriented, practical Virgo until 5:16pm EDT; turning our focus toward the practical and wholesome. We are generous with our time/services and we love to help others. We also have a fondness for science and anything that makes sense in our world — things and knowledge we can apply and use.

Health might come also into focus at this time. We notice the parts that make up the whole; this is a great time to see if our daily routines (eating, work, self-care, etc.) align with our long-term goals.

Monday morning, we can potentially accomplish quite a bit: The Moon in Virgo makes a harmonious aspect to Pluto in Capricorn. Virgo and Capricorn are Earth signs, so getting down to business and focusing on the task at hand takes less effort than normal. We are able to tackle anything that requires attention to detail and maybe even implement health routines or other systems that support our long-term goals.

Monday at 9:29am EDT, we enter a Moon Void of Course (VoC), that lasts for almost 8 hours until 5:16pm EDT. Use this intuitive time to clarify what’s important to you. Ask yourself: What works for me in my daily routines? What doesn’t? What are my expectations or attitudes towards those things? What new vantage point might show me how to easily implement my business goals?

As always with a Moon VoC, as best as you can, don’t start anything brand-new, stick to routine things, or simply go with the flow. You may also want to plan Monday late morning until the late afternoon ahead of time.

Monday at 5:16pm EDT, the Moon moves into harmony-loving, balance-seeking Libra, where it will journey until Wednesday afternoon. The energy of the Libra Moon helps us be naturally courteous and diplomatic; we are more polite at this time, as we seek the approval of others.

We very much want to maintain equal, fair relationships at this time, and are therefore open to making compromises and negotiating. These next two days are a great time for mediation — but our need for peace and accompanying aversion to direct conflict could pull us to “yes” more easily than we might like.

We may also be able see both sides of the equation so well that we can’t make decisions. As best as you can, find an inner balance with this and communicate what needs to be said with grace and charm — even if it’s “No” 😉 One last quick note: this is also a great time for anything to do with visual arts. This Moon placement starts the build up towards the Full Moon (exact Tuesday late evening).

Monday evening: we feel harmonious connections, even though we are focused on…
