May the 4th be with you – we are graced with a gentle but potent New Moon in Taurus which adds grounding to Saturn’s retrograde which started at the end of April. This is a time of planting seeds for things which coincide with time management, career, financial decisions and also lifestyle such as better eating and making your house a home. Taurus governs Venus, the planet of love, beauty, and also values, and so while the Sun is also in Taurus, the New Moon directs our focus on these things even more.
While the New Moon in Taurus is the perfect time to focus on the beautiful garden we are working on harvesting – metaphorically speaking when it comes to our goals, dreams, and thoughts, it is actually a time to weed out the things that are constricting our growth and hindering our intentions from manifesting. With Saturn and Pluto being in retrograde for the next few months, and being in Capricorn, the Taurus Moon and Sun empowers this earthly energy and helps us refocus on the things within that are self-sabotaging when considering how we go about setting goals, making a plan to achieve our desires, and the first major steps taken in order to get things into motion.
The Taurus Moon brings grounding and centers our hears and minds onto what truly is valuable to us – not just physical or superficial things, but the things which we normally take for granted that can make or break our whole day or game plan for long-term goals. That cup of coffee in the morning while listening the birds chirping and reading the morning news, the comfort of our own bed at night, or even the food we put on the table for dinner – these things seem so simple, but often we forget how truly important they are. For example, that morning coffee could be the morning meditation we use to focus on how we plan the day, the comfortable bed could contribute to a good nights sleep where we wake up refreshed, and the dinner at the table with your family, or by yourself, is the nourishment your body needs in order to be productive, healthy, and focused throughout everything else. Of course, the Moon doesn’t just contribute to focus on these things, but these are the things in which the Moon wants us to consider, as the planetary energies and even the sun’s focus is on where our sense of value, contentment and of course, our daily habits are.
The energy of this New Moon is focused on not only our value system, but also our financial status and relationships – are we in a position that is supporting the vision we have for the future that correlates with our higher paths? Or are we just wasting space and wasting time doing the same old thing – stuck in a routine that takes away from our connection to our Higher Self and spirit?

“Cracked open. It’s happening for you, not to you.”
Your vibe attracts your tribe, just as much as your tribe can influence your vibe. Are those in your social circle, family, or close friends hindering, or promoting your growth? Not everyone in our life is truly family, or a good friend, as some are just there to distract us from our true path, or their jealousy or envy penetrates our aura and opens us up to a spiritual attack as those hooks end up draining our life force.
Taurus is the sign that promotes growth, nourishment, support, and is reliable as much as it is dependable. The Taurus Moon is in a very favorable position, as it does well with all things feminine as the Moon represents, but then also brings a grounding affect as it channels its divine influence and empowerment down onto the Earth.
You may be losing friends, or find that you are growing in a different direction than your significant other – things just aren’t the same as your value system has changed and you no longer want what did before, or you find that your close friend or partner is desiring things which you are incapable of providing. It can be many different things, but the main thing is not to take it too personally, as this is a time of finding that higher path with your tribe that compliments and supports the direction of your growth, and not hinder it.

The Taurus New Moon favors Saturn’s Retrograde that took place in the end of April. This is a cosmic boost into redirecting our thoughts on things that truly matter. You might be distracted by other events that aren’t really that important or significant, which could result in missing out in valuable opportunities which could truly bring you what you’re searching for. If you are thinking about taking a risk, don’t do it, because any positive results are rather unlikely.
You are so constricted and self-restricting, Taurus. You need to step out of your tight mold and do something a bit spontaneous this month, for the radical change you desire to happen. You need to let go of the control you desire and allow things to flow and then to grasp onto that flow and move where it takes you. This isn’t easy, because you can’t foresee the effects of this risk, and that is just the beauty of letting go. The New Moon offer you a chance to break free from what is holding you back, but first you must break free from your own restrictive nature.
You’re Going in the Right Direction
You are right where you need to be, Gemini, and these feelings that are stirring up within you are there for a good reason. While you may be stuck at a crossroads, the destination you connect most to is the right path for you. This New Moon invites you to take that first big step towards the right direction.
You can’t bring up old issues, Cancer, as much as you want to rectify certain things that have come and gone, there is nothing you can do to change what has been done. The New Moon wants you to let go of what was, and to embrace what could be, that is after you actualize the lessons learned and understand that while you can’t change things, you can change the way you go about things.
This is a Sign
This New Moon wants to grace you with the signs you have been waiting for, Leo. You may have been asking for something which will help you greatly reach a treasured goal, but you are unsure on how to go about it. The New Moon is going to present a sign to help you align with the right path that will take you where you need to go. So when you have been asking for a sign, Leo, don’t dismiss it when it arrives.
Not the Right Time
While the New Moon is in a sign that favors yours, Virgo, it does seem that right now is not the right time for you take any big steps forward. You might be missing out on subtle details or the fine print, which is easy to miss, but by doing that, you are blocking yourself from moving forward. The New Moon is asking you to pay closer attention to the minor things, and as you do, everything else will flow into place.
Don’t do it, Libra. Don’t change directions now. You are right where you need to be – even if the road is long, there is much beauty to be had in it. You chose to take the scenic route, knowing that it would be a while before you got to your destination, but the experiences to be had alone are also rewards within themselves. So, stay where you are, and don’t throw in the towel just yet because you are growing impatient.
Choose a New Direction
Let the past remain in the past – there is nothing new to gain from there. You need to start focusing on the newness that comes from setting part on a new adventure. Let go of old ties that are outdated or bring you back to an old state of mind or feeling, and welcome in the new energy you have been hoping for. The New Moon is pushing you to start planting seeds.
You need to practice the difficult art of saying No and grow a backbone, Sagittarius. You are such a generous soul and would give your last dollar to someone in need, even though without it would mean that you would suffer. Well, you have been suffering for quite some time now, and so it is time that you draw some boundaries and do not let others cross the line any longer. The New Moon calls for you to inform others that you have given enough, and now need to start giving back to yourself.
You’re going in the right direction.
Even if it doesn’t feel that you rare going towards the right direction with all of this chaos and heartbreak around you, trust that you are, Capricorn. The New Moon is bringing something into your life to inspire you, and to restore hope back into your life. Often, the right direction, or higher path, is the hardest one to be walked, but that is because the rewards are far greater than the easy way out.
Not the Right Time
No not rush, Aquarius, and consider all of the elements at play. The New Moon opposes you and so you cannot force things to happen, or to take complete control over a situation that troubles you. Unfortunately, you are not in charge this time around, Aquarius, and so you need to give up that wheel and allow the Universe to guide you.
You might be so fixed on a relationship that you don’t realize how toxic it truly is, Pisces. You need to reconsider your perspective about someone and see them for who they truly are. The New Moon is working hard within the realm of your personal relationships and forcing you to make some changes which will in turn set you on to a better path that invites truly loving people who are better for you.
