Saying Thank You!

By May 1, 2024No Comments

The New Moon in Taurus emerges at 04.22BST on 8th May at 18 Taurus.

The annual New Moon in Taurus invites us to explore comfort, pleasure, and enjoyment, what we have or don’t have, what keeps us comfortable, secure, and happy. Ruled by the Goddess of Love, planet Venus, Taurus is the first earth sign, representing stability on all levels, our connection to senses, body, and nature, what we own, that which gives us pleasure and what we enjoy.

Well-being and abundance, appreciation and gratitude are qualities to be aware of in Taurus season. It’s prime time to explore habits that provide comfort but not necessarily good health, to recognise where cosiness has become stagnancy, and where you simply refuse to let go because of security fears. It’s good to recognise that if your hands are already full, there’s no space to receive.

The energies of Taurus also call us to hold deep appreciation and gratitude for the blessings of life that we’re already receiving… so much to be truly thankful for: the gift of life in this next breath, the abundance of the natural world, connections that nourish and inspire.

At this New Moon, there’s a key focus on the Taurean realms of body, senses and attachments.
– What or who do you need more appreciation for, including yourself?
– What might you need to let go of to receive new frequencies of enjoyment and abundance?
– What do you truly desire that calls you to reach beyond any wounding of ‘I can’t’, ‘I shouldn’t’ or ‘Who, me?”
– What might need more maturity in taking response-ability?

Reflection on the cycles of nature and immersion in the natural world are truly supportive at this time. What does Gaia’s cycle reveal to you about your own life?
