STABILITY, SELF WORTH + MONEY
Taurus new moon reflection:
‘I am building a foundation based off trust, pleasure, beauty and truth.’
Happy Taurus New moon.
I'm still on a writing hiatus while working away on other things (like the 2024 planners!), but will leave you with a few tips that reflect the some of the essence of this Taurus new moon.
Prioritise rest, pleasure, ease and nourishment.
Move the body to move through feelings.
Spend time wandering in nature taking in the colours, sounds, smells and aliveness of everything around you.
Focus on what brings you stability.
Invite more of that in.
Slow is smooth, and smooth is fast.

Astrologer Colin Bedell says:
What does stability, self-worth, and financial safety mean in a very uncertain, scarcity inducing, economically unjust world? I’m not sure if Taurus holds all the answers but I do know that it helps us learn to live with the question. In this way, I think Astrology reveals deeper questions we need to ask ourselves. Not necessarily the answers to the questions. Because every generation is meant to discover its own Truth. I think this is the Taurus question that can help our generation(s) find the Truth. What does stability, self-worth, and financial safety mean and become in today’s world that stands diametrically opposed to it?
It’s a big question and the biggest planet Jupiter entered Taurus on May 16th for one year helping us live with it. In addition to the annual New Moon in Taurus, innovative Uranus is also in this sign until 2025 as well as the North Node until this July. So we have 4 significant transits helping the zodiac hold the tension of the Taurus question. I’m blessed and challenged to be surrounded by many Taurus loved ones since I’m a Taurus midheaven. My relationships with this Venus ruled sign has helped me see their approaches to stability, self-worth, and money differently.
On stability, I think what we want to bring to the New Moon in Taurus is the realization that we cannot have stability until/unless we decide we want it and follow through on it. Culturally we’re raised and encouraged to slide into circumstances that we didn’t choose to “play it cool” and thus we have the instability of constraints, limitations, and challenges that we didn't actually choose. So stop sliding into instability, decide stability; discuss the agreements that create relational stability and do your best to follow through on it.
With self-worth, I see Taurus as the sign of value. Identity and implement your two values so that you can cultivate the self-worth of knowing you’re exactly who you say you are. There’s no self-worth like it.
When it comes to financial security, I love Lynn Twist’s definition of sufficiency, “In our relationship with money, it is using money in a way that expresses our integrity; using it in a way that expresses value rather than determines value. Sufficiency is an act of generating, distinguishing, making known to ourselves the power and presence of our existing resources, and our inner resources.
Sufficiency is a context we bring forth from within that reminds us that if we look around us and within ourselves, we will find what we need.”
Taurus helps us find the stability of decisiveness, the self-worth of practicing our values, and the sufficiency that repudiates scarcity. If we can live into these Taurus choices, I think we will set up our lives to work incredibly in tremendous ways not just under the New Moon but for the next two years!
The New Moon forming several aspects to Uranus, Mars, Saturn, Neptune, and even Pluto I think is giving the zodiac the chance to really begin this Taurus influenced year with the right footwork. So consider how you can choose to choose, find power in your decisiveness, implement your values for self-worth, and see how sufficiency guides you to inner peace.
