The New Moon in Taurus occurs at 3:18 am ET at 1 35”.

This begins a glorious week of focused inspiration, if you so choose. The more tangibly you visualize your dream, the more likely it is to unfold.

Plan to be somewhere today where you can appreciate the movement of your body in a glorious space. It may be in nature, your garden or your favorite store, depending on what pleases you. Ideally it is an environment that stimulates your senses of taste, sight, smell and touch.

The actual day of a New Moon can be a somewhat tenacious time to begin a project, but this one is solidly rooted in earth energy and supported by a Neptune/Pluto picture. So dream big and know it can happen!

The Sabian* Symbol for this Moon is: “An electrical storm” – since Jupiter is the last connection this Taurus moon makes before it leaves the sign, it is surely about an A-ha! Don’t get attached to the “how”, but leave yourself open to the wonder and possibility of big shifts and movements.

Remember, as powerful and frightening as a thunderstorm can be, the lightning provides nitrogen to create rich loam for growth.

*The Sabian symbols have been enjoying a lot of attention in the astrology blogs lately, and I suspect Uranus’ pass in Pisces had a bit to do with it. We are still in the process of understanding the symbols, which were revealed the last time Uranus was in that sign.
In 1925, the spiritualist astrologer Marc Edmund Jones, took Elsie Wheeler, a clairvoyant confined to a wheelchair to a San Diego park with a project. He put a symbol for each of the 360° of the zodiacal wheel on 360 cards. She proceeded to come up with channeled visual phrases for each one of them. They were done in random order and they have a magic that is hard to decipher, yet feels totally right.
