What is a New Moon?

The new Moon is the first phase of the lunar cycle. It happens when the Sun and the Moon are in conjunction (occurring in the the same place) in the night’s sky. This results in the Sun and Moon to combine their energies in the same sign of the zodiac.

During this time we begin the new theme for the cycle ahead and this is determined by the zodiac sign the New Moon occurs under. 

Throughout the course of a calendar year we experience a new Moon in every sign of the zodiac which allows you to come full circle in what is learned during that time.

Tune into the New Moon theme each cycle and be open to the possibilities it presents. This is the time for brainstorming your ideas and making plans for the lunar cycle ahead. At this time it’s good to feel excited as we consider the new opportunities available to us.

What is the Taurus New Moon all About?

Taurus is the second sign of the zodiac and associated with the element of Earth. This energy is about building strong foundations and finding stability and structure in what is already part of our lives.

During this new Moon we are being asked to reduce distraction and spend more time in the present moment and with the current pandemic we are experiencing this is more important than ever before.

I know this isn’t the same for everyone right now but in my world there is a lot less noise. At first this felt very uncomfortable as I’ve been used to the crazy online world that my business is part of for a number of years now and as a result being constantly connected and a slave to social media has been the norm.

However, as I try to filter negative information. unhelpful fake news and world panic I find myself being more discerning about what I allow into my world.

The upcoming Taurus energy asks that we explore the influences of what’s around us. What do we need? What do we want? Where do we already feel abundant?

And the secret to exploring this energy is stillness. As we slow down, remove ourselves from the noise of the world and focus on the well being of those around us during this challenging time we have more opportunity to be still, although I’m not suggesting it’s going to be easier.

Take some time during this New Moon to explore the energy and theme of Taurus, set some intentions for the cycle ahead and journal about your thoughts and feelings during this time.

I’ve added some journaling questions to get you started below.

Inspiration and Guidance

Check out the below inspiration, guidance and wisdom from some of my favourite authors.

The pace of life has accelerated to the point that most of us feel overwhelmed and behind schedule. Luckily, the time of the month when the Moon is in Taurus helps us slow down long enough to counteract the trend. Taurus wants us to focus more on our bodies and savour life fully. This Moon Goddess is in the here and now. Start by preparing a delicious breakfast, and really take your time chewing and tasting it. Feel the nutrients feeding every cell and sense your body’s deep appreciation for the nourishment.

Moon Power, Lunar Rituals for Connecting with your Lunar Goddess

The new Moon in Taurus is the Dryads Moon. Here Taurus, the earthiest of the Earth signs, comes forth in a form that is as close to nature as it is posible for humankind to get […] During the Dryads Moon we struggle with our relationship with nature, and especially the green world. This includes the relationship to the food we put into ourselves (and the ecosystem that may have been destroyed to grow it), the wood that made our coffee table, the paper that makes the pages of our books, the plants who were exploited to make our clothing, and all that we have killed in order to make up our lives. It is an excellent time for doing ecological work, especially for the purpose of protecting wild open land.
