New Moon in Taurus – April 21,2012

New Moon's are times of new beginnings, planting seeds and setting intentions. This New Moon has the Sun, Moon, Ceres and Jupiter in Taurus which reconnects us with the earth on physical (Sun) and emotional (Moon) levels. The symbol for Taurus is the Bull, and the Bulls were used to pull the plows in the fields to cultivate the land for the new crops. The glyph for Taurus symbolizes the head of the bull, and the crescent Moon above the head represents spirit. However, from a much older tradition the glyph for Taurus represents the fallopian tubes and the womb. This reaffirms Taurus as a sign of fertility and abundance.

There is a marvelous grand trine in stabilizing earth between the Sun/Moon/Jupiter/Ceres in Taurus, Mars in Virgo and Pluto in Capricorn. This reflects the “Green Consciousness ” in both the mainstream and social media. Ceres in Taurus is about care taking and nurturing the land and environment. Ceres in mythology is the goddess of agriculture and the harvest. Mars in Virgo wants us to attack and clean up our mess, Pluto in Capricorn asks that we take greater responsibility with pollution and toxic waste and Jupiter in Taurus wants us to simply enjoy the beauty and abundance Mother Nature has to offer.

The degree for the New Moon from Zodiacal Symbology reads: A heart crowned on the summit of a barren rock jutting out of the ocean- a bevy of white seabirds speeding towards it from the east in crescent form. Denotes one capable of immense sacrifices whom surrenders self, expecting no reward. Life will be lonely, but ever threatened by storms. In the end wisdom and worth will triumph and the second half of life brings good promise. It is a symbol of Devotion.

Taurus symbolizes issues with security, values and attachment with the physical world. This is a favorable time to engage in setting new financial goals and objectives. Long term financial planning or simply committing to a new budget that is down to earth and practical brings renewed stability.

Energetic Mars marched forward on April 13 after being retrograde since January 23. This is the time to move ahead with major projects and plans that have been on the back burner. Mars in Virgo asks us to resharpen our swords and skills with greater precision and efficiency. This is a favorable time to begin a new health, diet and exercise program. Conscientious Virgo works diligently at self-improvement.

Pluto turned retrograde on April 11 and will stay there until September 18. Be prepared to dive deep into the uncharted waters of the psyche. Pluto retrograde is a powerful time of profound change and transformation if we are willing to let go and release old habits or attitudes that no longer serve our needs. Something old needs to die so something new can be born. Pluto is the god of riches and buried treasures, when retrograde he may unearth hidden treasures from within. Pluto is about power. We cannot avoid using power, so let us love more powerfully.

Uranus squares Jupiter in the Sibly chart brings a power surge or stimulus toward economic expansion. Unexpected or unstable conditions arise with legal, religious or educational institutions. New breakthroughs in business ventures are possible. Don't rush into anything to rashly or impulsively. Travel plans can take you to unusual places.

Transiting Chiron (Healing) in Pisces conjuncts Ceres (Earth Mother) in Pisces. Healing the Earth comes through spirit, singing, dancing, chanting and prayer. Never underestimate the healing powers of earth medicine and mother nature. New innovative techniques emerge that support environmental and ecological protection.

Uranus conjuncts Mercury in the New Moon chart.  Excellent time to think outside the box. Old ways of thinking are replaced by new ideas and attitudes. Unexpected news come from friends or relatives. Uranus is the cosmic electrician and aspecting Mercury there can be disruptions in communications, power outages or short curcuits with electrical grids. Use your mental powers and imagination constructively. Remember the adage: Energy follows thought!
