The new moon in Taurus began at 7:25PM PST this evening during Earth Day, which makes this new moon a very significant one for us all.
New moons signify new beginnings and an opportunity for us to “reset.” This is the most pristine time of the month to set your intentions, as the energy of the moon is still “empty” and gives us the time to use the entire 30-day moon cycle to fill our lives up with new intentions.
The new moon in Taurus on Earth Day not only gives us a chance to start out with a planted foot on stable ground, but also serves as a reminder of how important it is for us to ground ourselves by connecting with Mother Nature. 🌱 We often believe that we must embark on grand adventures to find inspiration, but the quiet moments that we tend to shy away from may often yield the most profound revelations.
The COVID-19 pandemic has become coined as “The Great Pause,” and this Great Pause has given the earth a much-needed break from the toxic contributions we have made to the environment for so long. During this new moon, we are being encouraged to realize the negative environmental impact of humanity’s industrialization and what changes we can make to reduce our carbon footprint moving forward.
In 2018 Uranus also entered Taurus, which began a 7-year cosmic cycle in which we are being forced to critically examine and change how we can utilize Earth’s resources in a less depleting and more sustainable way. Uranus is now sitting beside the Moon and is calling for innovation and change in the weakest parts of humanity’s infrastructures that have relied on nature’s limited resources for so long.
Additionally, this new moon introduces the retrograde of Pluto in Capricorn on the 25th. This transit through Capricorn will bring to light all of the world’s corruption through upheaval, and as a result, Pluto will initiate deep and transformational changes within our social systems starting on the 25th and continuing until October 4th, when Pluto stations direct.
The world as we know it is being turned upside down and shaken. How will you use this time to go back to the drawing board and discover how you can contribute to humanity’s collective healing?
