New Moon in Taurus
24 – 25 April 2009
Greetings Star Gazer!
It’s the New Moon in Taurus!
Fertile. Fecund. Ready to receive.
“April”comes from the Latin aperio, meaning “I open”.
Taurus is ruled by Venus, lover of Beauty and of LOVE itself.
What path is your love nature telling us to follow?
Venus, the ruler of Taurus (and of Libra, peace-loving sign of balance and harmony), just re-entered Aries, encouraging and supporting us to try the NEW, the fresh, the path of growth.
Venus and her male counterpart, Mars (ruler of Aries) hover withing 10 degrees of one another until mid-July. This dancing pair supports us in confronting what our values are in relationship, in our livelihoods, in our Life path.
This degree of the New Moon (6 degrees Taurus) makes a square to the solar eclipse which occurred on January 26th. (See how it is all connected?) The imperative of this connection is to ask yourself: Is what I want in line with how I am living? Or is it time for a change, for the better?
Plant some seeds this weekend: seeds of your heart’s desires and maybe some plants as well! and do it with others. The time for collaboration is here.
Enjoy your New Moon in Taurus.
