The sun has moved into Taurus and the new moon follows in a couple of days.
Saturday the 21st @ 3:18am EDT the sun and moon come together and begin the new cycle for Taurus. Taurus is an earth sign and seeks security through having.
Abraham Maslow hierarchy of needs states that we cannot, as human beings, actualize to our highest potential if we do not have our basic needs met.
Taurus, among other things, is about feeling comfortable, safe and secure- it includes the value of having things: a roof over your head, food to eat, and enough money to purchase what you want. Since Pluto shifted into Capricorn, 2008, and at the critical station in September 2008, much of the world and people have seen old fashion security crumble. Pluto is now at 9 degrees Capricorn and will form a square with Uranus 7 times over the next few years. What does this mean for you and the world? Demands for change in large corporations and in governments that have become too entrenched in old ways of doing things which no longer work, and it is an opportunity for you to make changes in your life that no longer support you.
The underlying concern for Taurus is am I secure? Sure we can get carried away- wanting more or thinking we need more- yet this cycle can address a very fundamental need to have. What do I need to be happy? What do I need to have to feel safe? Aries is I AM- Taurus is I HAVE. Once we achieve the basic Taurean needs, then Taurus as the artist can emerge, appreciation of beauty- nature and art.
Taurus is ruled by Venus, who is associated with abundance and love. Two basic concerns in our lives.
Venus will be retrograde May 15th in Gemini during this cycle (trine Saturn in Libra- emphasizing balanced relationships and communication). This is a perfect time to reassess what you want, what you have, and what brings pleasure and purpose in your life.
Questions to contemplate for the Taurus new moon.
1. What makes you feel safe and secure?
2. Is it money?
3. A home?
4. Great loving relationships?
5. A good job?
8. Friends and connections?
During the new moon cycle contemplate on the question of what does it mean to be prosperous?
What would your ideal life look like?
How far away do you feel from what you have to what you want?
Dig out your old tapes/Cd’s and books on prosperity and abundance during this cycle, add items to your vision board and trust that what you want and need is finding its way into your life.
