It’s a New Moon in Taurus! While a lunation in this earthy sign would usually bring energies of slow and steady grounding, Uranus—the planet of upheaval and sudden change—closely follows the moon right into Taurus and shakes things up (in a way that will likely be very surprising and utterly impossible to predict). Uranus hasn’t been in Taurus for 84 years, so many of us have never experienced this energy before. Lasting for about 7 years, we can expect that whatever this New Moon brings will be the first rumbles of a Uranus in Taurus earthquake, shaking up our perceptions of and approach to achieving stability and security. Old habits will be broken, and faulty foundations will crumble and be left behind. It is a beautiful time to commit to positive personal goals, particularly those that relate to our bodies and our relationship with money and possessions. New Moons are times of new beginnings and possibilities, often a time to plant the seeds of what we hope to grow. This moon is not about putting down roots or getting comfortable, but about preparing for the shifts that are coming, without knowing what they are. We are called to find our stability through the acceptance of inevitable change, practicing staying in the moment rather than worrying about what is coming next. Consider what is under your direct and immediate control and work on addressing that with integrity and compassion. Intentionally directing your energies in this way is one of the best strategies to prepare for whatever’s coming!
