Luxuriate with Venus under the Taurus new Moon
Luxuriate and take it easy at the super new moon at 16° 41’ of Taurus on Saturday 7 May at 5.29am AEST.
The energy of Venus-ruled Taurus is fixed, practical and loves savoring anything sensual – gorgeous fabrics, home-wares and stylish fashion, delicious food and wine, flowers, gardens, the outdoors, and material goods that offer value for money.
Taurus energy is not known for fast action or change but once it has set its mind to something it will continue to build it until it’s completed – so it’s time to slow down and think about what it is we really want.
Unusually, there are 5 planets in retrograde motion now – Mercury (communication), Mars (our drive), Jupiter (expansion), Saturn (reality check) and Pluto (authority). The “re” words rule as the energy asks us to rest, reflect, reconsider and review our projects, options and direction.
It’s helpful to live in our centre and find our own truth with the new moon supported by a harmonious grand earth trine all month. The Sun, Moon, Mercury and Venus are all in Taurus, Jupiter is in Virgo and Pluto is in Capricorn – all earth signs. Positive doors may open in this powerful planetary set-up but it could be hard to connect the dots with all the retrograde planets.
The new moon and the grand trine is perfect energy for setting intentions and planting new seeds for the future. There will be time to nurture and cultivate the seeds over several weeks.
We all have Taurus somewhere in our chart. Live in the now, be grounded and enjoy simple pleasures and the finer things in life – whatever they are for you!
