Talk About Taurus
Taurus is a Fixed Earth sign, filled with courage, confidence, and drive. As a fixed sign, Taurus is a persistent go-getter who stops at nothing to accomplish goals. Due to its earthly energy, Taurus is also very grounded, material, and resourceful. Symbolized by the bull, Taurus’ energy is one of strength and determination, which can sometimes manifest in the shadow as stubbornness and rigidity.
However, Taurus will get the job done and knows how to make magic happen.
Taurus is also very sensual. It rules our five senses, making it one to focus on the pleasures of life. It’s a lover of abundance, the finer things, and beauty.
This is no surprise as Taurus is ruled by Venus, the planet of love, beauty, and harmony. Venus also represents creativity, money, and what we need to be emotionally fulfilled.
Taurus is the second sign of the zodiac making it the ruler of the 2nd house. The 2nd house represents what we value, our possessions, our income and earning potential, as well as our self-worth. On top of that, our sense of security and self-confidence is projected through our 2nd house.
Taurus New Moon Energy
When the moon is in Taurus, it is exalted. This means that the moon loves being in the sign of Taurus, and is very comfortable here. When the moon is in Taurus, it thrives due to the stability that Taurus provides the rapidly fluctuating moon. Taurus makes the moon calm. It grounds its energy welcoming more peace and tranquility.
With that said, we can expect more emotional balance with this new moon, as we did with the Full Moon in Libra. We can count on ourselves to be more dependable and consistent, making this a prime time to really put in some work and get things done.
This energy is also quite nurturing and romantic, so we might find that we are a bit more sensual and drawn to life’s pleasures. Don’t be surprised if your senses are more heightened during this time, especially that of taste as one of Taurus’ Achilles’ heel is food.
If you’ve been wanting to manifest new love into your life, this is an ideal time to do so. Use the romantic energy of this new moon to usher in love, passion, and sensuality.
April 20, 2023 reduces down to 13/4. The number 4 is grounded, structured, proactive, and hard-working. With it being a 13/4 day, we have the influence of number 1 and 3. This is a great time to consciously decide what we are going to create, to express ourselves, freely, and to remain grounded while doing so.
Number 4 is about commitment and organization. It takes ideas and applies them in a grounded, practical way. It’s a hardworking energy, just like Taurus, so now is the time to make a commitment about what you want and go after it. Use the energy of this new moon to map out your goals and what you need to do to accomplish them.
Use the creative influence of Venus to set your manifestations by creating a vision board or updating your current one, writing out your wishes and intentions using the 369 method, or any other creative idea that you can think of to begin manifesting what you desire.
How to Work With The Taurus New Moon
Now that you’ve had an overview on the New Moon in Taurus and its numerological energy, here are three things that you can do to best harness its power.
1. Review the goals you set at the beginning of the year
The 2nd quarter of the year began at the beginning of the month. If you haven’t already, now is an excellent time to review the progress you’ve made thus far with whatever goals you set at the beginning of the year. Taurus is all about persistence and perseverance.
Have you accomplished the short term goals that you set for yourself during the New Year? Are you on track to accomplish your New Year’s Resolution? What progress have you made thus far and which goals, if any, currently need revision?
Are you at the point where you’ve surpassed the goals you set for yourself and do you need to set new ones?
Take some time to ask yourself these questions and begin updating the plan that you set into action at the beginning of the year.
2. Set financial goals
Taurus is all about money, possessions, and material goods. Use the energy of this new moon and of the potent solar eclipse to set new financial goals and to manifest more abundance into your life.
Life is already abundant, though we may not view it as such. We get caught up in what we don’t have and lose sight of the abundance that is all around us. Not only do you want to set financial goals or manifest more wealth into your life, you also want to practice gratitude for the things that you already possess, whether material or not.
If you plan to manifest wealth, money, possessions or anything material during this new moon, be sure that you first thank Source for all that you already have. Your health, shelter, your capacity to think, income, family, whatever you have express your gratitude. Get into a state of gratefulness, feel the abundance all around you, and then visualize all of the abundance that is to come.
3. Get sensual
Although Taurus is a serious sign, we can use the energy of the new moon to have a little fun by getting in touch with our senses. Take advantage of this sensual, romantic energy by stimulating your senses in a positive way.
This might look like listening to ASMR, eating delectable food, taking a tantra class with your partner, or anything that heightens your senses and brings pleasure into your life.
Treat yourself to new quality sheets, purchase a new fragrance that you’ve been wanting, or go out and watch the sunrise or sunset. Whatever activities bring you pleasure in a sensual way, do more of them during this new moon.
