The Taurus New Moon occurs at 2:51 am ET at 12°Taurus31”.

The Sabian symbol is: “A man handling baggage”. This is a loaded image, because is shows some degree of caretaking or taking charge. The initiator is male, so it’s a yang energy in a female sign (Taurus) and “baggage” has multiple meanings. It’s what we carry around, whether for travel or our emotional stuff.

Handling it, however is different than stowing it away. It is up for grabs, up for transit… visible as “stuff” being carted around.

What do you want to create to forge a greater sense of security and comfort in your life?

Is your body feeling physically fit and content? What can you do to give it pleasure and contentment?

Your body is the vessel through which your soul can do its work. If you have health issues, are you taking responsibility for your care and well-being? If it’s not going as you’d like, perhaps it’s time to change or modify your tactics.

Taurus is the sign that indicates great physical stamina, so if this is not how you feel, use the New Moon energy to plan ways you might improve this. Some physical challenges are daunting, but you may be able to implement guided meditation, aromatherapy or sound therapy to augment your body’s ability to heal.

If financial concerns are a struggle, this New Moon bodes well for increased communication for potential opportunities. Your luck truly is, in who you know.

Pay homage to the celebration of spring with a relaxed meal and the company of a loved one. The moon is VOC* all day, so do not initiate, but instead contemplate.

*Moon VOC/Void-of-Course… in Taurus, relaxation is demanded. You can try to accomplish a big task, but that couch looks awfully inviting. Give in and let yourself enjoy a leisurely lunch and your productivity will increase afterwards.
