New Moon in Taurus: Put Down Roots
A New Moon is always an exciting time of each month because it is a time that represents new beginnings and achieving new goals. ‘New’ is the key word! Reflecting on old goals and setting new ones brings a sense of freshness that is very welcome to many, especially when things become tired or dull.
This month on Thursday, April 23rd, we have a New Moon in Taurus. The New Moon in each of the 12 signs represents different things and depending on what sign it is in, this is where our focus should be.
Taurus, along with Libra, is ruled by Venus, meaning it values harmony, beauty and everything in the physical realm. With the New Moon in this sign, anyone who is an Earth sign (Taurus, Capricorn, and Virgo) or has an Earth sign as their rising sign will feel the effects more profoundly.

Think about your relationship to money.
It might seem strange when you think of it, but when it comes down to it, most of us don’t really think about our actual relationship with money. Yes, we think of what we need to spend, what we need to save, etc. But we don’t think of it as if it were an actual relationship.
For example, asking ourselves questions on a regular basis like, “Is this making me happy?” “Do I need to slightly alter anything?” “Am I happy with the way I think about money?” “What side of me is money ultimately fulfilling?” The New Moon in Taurus gives us the opportunity to think about all these questions.
Think of new ways to increase income.
By the same token, New Moon in Taurus also gives us creative bursts when it comes to money. This is especially helpful during this time when many are struggling financially. During this New Moon, it can be helpful to do a ritual asking the universe to provide you with ideas to make more money. If you set it as an intention, in the run-up to the Full Moon, innovative ideas ought to come to you.
Beautify your home & yourself.
Taurus is a sign that values beauty, especially aesthetic beauty. It is said that Taurus beauty focuses more on appearance, while Libran beauty focuses more on the soul. During the New Moon in Taurus, thinking of ways we can make our homes more beautiful is on the agenda.
Perhaps we’d like to move things around or bring flowers from the garden into the home. We can beautify ourselves too – perhaps we can dress up in an outfit we haven’t worn for some time and spend an evening having our own personal photo-shoot! Maybe we could rummage through our make-up bags and try out new looks to see whether they suit us or not.
This New Moon in Taurus is about exploring and making things look as nice as can be!

Think about your values & needs.
Too often we neglect our own needs, whether it’s due to work, relationships or commitments. This New Moon can herald opportunities to think more of ourselves, what brings us peace and harmony, and how we can manifest our own personal needs and values into reality. Setting this as an intention can also pave the way for manifestation at the next Full Moon.
A New Moon is always a powerful time for attracting new things into your life. Set some time aside to relax, light a candle, burn some incense, clear your energy with sage and listen to your intuition. Write down your desires – listen to what your heart is telling you. That’s why it’s so important to clear your energy and have a peaceful frame of mind when you do your New Moon ritual – it helps eliminate the chatter of an over-active mind.
Be clear with your intentions and speak them out loud. Don’t forget to express gratitude! Then, between the New and Full Moon which will appear two weeks later, you can take action on these intentions and watch the magic manifest before your eyes.
