The Taurus New Moon on the 19th of May 2023 marks the first lunar cycle since Eclipse Season began. This arrival of a new lunar cycle allows the transformative, and potentially tumultuous energies of the Eclipses to begin to ease, gently receding into the backdrop of our existence. Eclipses are often harbingers of change, awakening, metamorphosis, and transition. Our lives, or perhaps our perspectives, may appear drastically different compared to when the Eclipses initially emerged on April 19th. Eclipses can foster quantum leaps, propelling our spiritual journey forward. So, if you find yourself standing at a junction, suspended in uncertainty, or navigating entirely new terrain, the vibrations of this New Moon in Taurus 2023 can offer grounding and stabilization. Taurus, a sign synonymous with stability and safety, is what this New Moon promises. What measures can you take to instil more stability and security in your life? How can you render yourself more steadfast and secure? Any issues that surface around the time of this Taurus New Moon could very likely be tied to underlying feelings of insecurity or a deficit of self-esteem. Be mindful of any discomfort that emerges during this period, and investigate if your insecurities might be contributing. Embracing anything that triggers discomfort is also a worthwhile practice to adopt. Remember, discomfort is an indication of growth! By accepting the feeling, you gain insight into its origin. You don’t need to have all the answers; simply being aware often suffices. If you consistently apply this practice in your life, you'll eventually notice that fewer things seem to disturb you!

Embrace the Potential of the New Moon in Taurus 2023
The unknown need not be feared; it's the unrealized potential within that should concern us. As we welcome the New Moon in Taurus on May 19, 2023, we're in the company of the Sun, Moon, Jupiter, Mercury, Uranus, and the North Node, all in the same earth sign. Simultaneously, we observe Saturn and Neptune in Pisces, along with Mars and Venus in Cancer, lending a water element to the Taurus New Moon.
This celestial alignment, with multiple planets in Taurus interacting with planets in Pisces and Cancer, imbues the New Moon with a rich intuition for us to intuit, align, and open up to as we navigate our intentions. This lunar phase encourages receptivity over action and inward reflection over outward exploration.
The New Moon in Taurus invites a morning of quietude, a moment to harness the power of your intuitive wisdom. It's a lunar phase that encourages you to trust in your inner guidance system, which already has the answers you seek if you are open to receiving them.
During the New Moon's Journey...
As you traverse the lunar landscape of the Taurus New Moon, allow yourself to simply exist amidst the waves of vibrational energy that flow toward you and bubble up from within. Tune in to the soft murmurs of your inner wisdom, relinquishing any need to force your way through. Instead, embrace the present while silently acknowledging the yet-to-be.
Feel the inner resources at your disposal as you align with the New Moon in Taurus. This lunar phase carries the potential to connect you with your innate skills, enabling you to foster balance and harmony in your life. It's a reminder that you have every tool at your disposal to navigate today, tomorrow, and the days to come.
Embrace the resilience of your soul, your creative energy, and the power of your mind. You already have a toolkit filled with strategies to centre yourself amidst the whirl of life. These tools may take the form of mantras, breathwork, sensory connection, trust, or inner wisdom - always at your fingertips, waiting to be remembered.
The realization that you possess the inner resources to handle any situation provides the confidence to step outside your comfort zone and take risks that lead to a life you adore. You already have numerous methods to soothe your nervous system and manage your emotions. Embrace them during this New Moon. Feel your confidence, bravery, and resilience as resources that can restore peace when life takes unexpected turns.
Instead of succumbing to worry about the future or hesitation due to fear of the unknown, the New Moon encourages you to embrace your strength and anticipation. Worries, fears, and doubts may still surface, but you can press forward in spite of them. Even if the worst-case scenario becomes a reality, you have the creative problem-solving skills to work your way towards the best-case scenario.
With the Moon and Sun sextile Neptune in Pisces, this lunar phase nudges you to entertain your dreams. Take time to do nothing, daydream, and remain open to inspiration. Let visions emerge in your consciousness. Allow your dreams to sweep you away, feel them deeply, and consider them with curiosity. Imagine them as reality.
The message of the New Moon is unequivocal: do not fear the unknown; fear the unfulfilled potential. It's a time to envisage a version of yourself who remains tranquil in the face of adversity, capable of handling any potential challenge.
The New Moon in Taurus also forms a sextile aspect with Mars in Cancer, prompting us to embrace new passions that may arise from our intuition. Perhaps there's something we yearn for but have been hesitant to chase. The New Moon is the perfect time to acknowledge your fear, learn from it, and break free from its control. It's time to step out of your comfort zone and pursue what truly invigorates you.
You may experience a cocktail of fear and excitement. This mix of emotions is an indicator that you're on the right path. Feel the inner resources that help you set your fears aside, release any hesitation, and recall that you can confront anything with bravery. Rely on your resources, and envision yourself as composed and prepared.
As you surf the potent vibrations of this New Moon in Taurus, realize your potential to manifest the life you yearn for and deserve. It's your rightful claim. However, this New Moon isn't about taking action. It's about being present, connecting, and receiving the answers. It's about tracing the path of your intuition, confident that it will always guide you to where you need to be. You don't need to worry about the details or fear the unknown. Just remember, you are deserving of abundance in all its forms, and you have every resource necessary to bring your visions to life.
Throughout the Taurus season, seek opportunities to simplify your life, decelerate, and find tranquillity. Taurus connects us to Nature and reminds us of the support we receive from her strength. Step outside and feel the wind brush against your face, your bare feet sinking into the warm soil and tune into the melodies of the birds around you. Watch the sunset, witness the moonrise, and lie beneath the starry expanse.
Establish a connection with Nature to immerse yourself in pure presence. Let this bond bring you back to the simple pleasures of life. Let these small moments remind you that you are cradled by the vast Universe of which you are a part.
Taurus assists us in finding presence. This season is not about drama or turmoil. It is an opportunity to regulate your nervous system. Throughout this season, continually ask yourself what the simplest answer could be. Resist the temptation to overthink or spend too much time hunting for logical solutions. Instead, tune into your instinct. Allow the answers you seek to surface, and then trust them. Trust your intuition and trust that some things in life really can be easy.
As you find simplicity, you also find space. Without the complexity of an overactive mind, your emotions can breathe. It's a time to reflect, from a safe distance, on the path you've trodden. Free from immersion in your emotions or internal turmoil, you can find insights and higher meaning.
As you sit in the present moment, you can feel your inner peace and your capacity to weather any storm. You are your own anchor. You can always depend on yourself, and you can always rely on the nature around you. From this place of tranquillity, you can take risks, step out of your comfort zones, and carve a new path. Once you understand that you can always return to yourself and always find the wisdom to heal your soul, your world opens up. You can find your creativity in the stillness of your mind.
Allow the rhythms of Nature to guide you back to your tranquillity and peace. Feel your worth and understand that you deserve everything you desire. You are worth slowing down for, and you are worth your full attention. Stay present with yourself and connect with the beauty around you. Experiment with tools that soothe your nervous system and bring in frequencies that quiet your mind.
With a quiet mind, you can then share your creations with the world without fear of rejection. You can do something that scares you. You can leap into the unknown to build the life of your dreams. You can do all this because you know you have the greatest safety net of all: yourself.
New Moon in Taurus Manifesting Ritual
A green candle (symbolizing growth, abundance, and Taurus earth energy)
Pen and paper
An earth element (a potted plant, a piece of earthy crystal like green aventurine, or moss agate, or a bowl of soil)
Incense or essential oils (try patchouli or rose for Taurus vibes)
Cleansing: Start by cleansing your space with incense sticks, sage, palo santo, or essential oil to dispel any negative energies. This can be done by lighting the incense and walking around your space, letting the smoke fill the area, or diffusing the essential oil.
Centring: Once your space is cleansed, sit comfortably, close your eyes, and take a few deep breaths. Feel the connection to the Earth beneath you, grounding you and giving you strength.
Lighting the Candle: Light your green candle. As you do this, visualize the flame bringing light, growth, and abundance into your life.
Writing Intentions: On the paper, write down what you want to manifest. Taurus energy is very grounded, practical, and connected to the physical world, so this is a good time to focus on material goals or things that make you feel secure and stable. Be specific and write in the present tense, as if it's already happening.
Meditation and Visualization: Close your eyes and hold the earth element in your hands. Imagine the energy of the earth flowing into you, grounding you, and solidifying your intentions. Visualize your life as if your intentions have already come true. (To amplify this manifesting experience, try our guided meditation below.)
Affirmations: Speak out loud the following affirmations, or create your own that resonate with your intentions.
"I am grounded, stable, and secure."
"Abundance flows freely and naturally to me."
"I am deserving of all the prosperity the Universe has to offer."
"I trust in the process of manifestation and allow my desires to materialize."
"The energy of the Earth supports my growth and success."
7. Closure: When you feel ready, blow out the candle, and thank the Universe or any higher powers you believe in for their support and guidance. Keep the written intentions somewhere safe until the next New Moon, so you can reflect on the growth and changes.
Remember, manifestation is about more than just thinking about what you want. It's about aligning your thoughts, feelings, and actions with your intentions, believing in their reality, and taking concrete steps toward them. This ritual is a tool to help you focus your energy and intention, but the real work happens in your day-to-day life. Trust in the process, and allow the Universe to guide you.
Guided Meditation for New Moon in Taurus 2023
Find a comfortable, quiet space where you can meditate without interruptions. You can sit or lie down, whichever feels most comfortable for you. Once you're ready, follow these steps:
#1 Centring: Close your eyes and take a few deep, grounding breaths. Inhale through your nose for a count of four, hold for a count of four, then exhale through your mouth for a count of six. Feel your body relax as you release each breath.
#2 Grounding: Visualize a beam of light or a tree root extending down from your spine, connecting you to the core of the Earth. This connection grounds you, stabilizes you and provides a channel for you to draw upon the nurturing energy of the Earth.
#3 Mindful Relaxation: Starting from the top of your head, imagine a warm, gentle wave of relaxation spreading through your body. Allow it to soothe and relax each part of your body, down to the tips of your toes.
#4 Connecting to Taurus Energy: Visualize a radiant, green light, symbolizing the strong, grounded energy of Taurus. Imagine this light encircling you, infusing your aura with stability, abundance, and resilience.
#5 Manifestation Visualization: Now, bring to mind the intentions you wrote down earlier. Visualize each one as a seed you're planting in rich, fertile soil. As you focus on each seed, see it sprouting, growing, and blossoming into reality. Imagine yourself living the reality of each intention. How does it feel? What can you see, hear, smell, taste, touch?
#6 Affirmations: Now, repeat the affirmations from the previous ritual or any other affirmations that resonate with your intentions. Feel the truth of these words as you say them, and imagine the energy of your words being absorbed by the seeds, nourishing them.
#7 Closing: When you feel ready, gently bring your awareness back to the room. Wiggle your fingers and toes, slowly open your eyes, and take a few more deep, grounding breaths.
Remember to drink some water and take it easy for a while after the meditation, as your body may need some time to integrate the energy shifts.
This guided meditation can be used as part of the ritual or separately, whenever you feel the need to reconnect with your intentions and the grounding energy of Taurus. It helps align your subconscious mind with your conscious intentions, which is an important part of the manifestation process.
