The Moon’s Journey

As you might have guessed, the moon is very busy after she crossed the equinox line. We had the Aries new moon beginning the month of Nisan and 14 days later, the Passover-Last-Supper full moon in Libra. Next is the new moon in Taurus, which is a big shift of focus and energy. We are shifting from the masculine elements of fire and air that are needed for liberation into the feminine elements of earth and water, which are vital for rebuilding. Metaphorically speaking, we crossed the Sinai desert for 30 days and now we are exploring the Promised Lands of milk (Taurus) and honey for 30 days. 

New Moon in Taurus
Some would argue that this April 22nd new moon in Taurus is the most potent new moon of the year. The Moon, our mother, nurturer, the giver of life (menstruation), the womb, she who shines upon us in the darkest of the night, is considered exalted when she is placed in Taurus. Albeit she is the ruler of Caner, in Taurus, the sign of Mother Nature, is where her reflective magic works the best and her radiating soothing silver light reaches furthest. Like a guest of honor, she appears in her best garments, wearing her multifaceted crown, she manifests in her pure benevolent form. By now, Nature should be blooming, bees busy making honey, cows’ production of milk peaks after calving, and the trees wear their newly acquired green coat as life is bustling with excitement.

The new moon is a conjunction of the sun and the moon. They occupy the same degree in the sky, which means we have the Sun and the Moon both in Taurus. The bull and cow come together. The masculine aspects of Taurus (finance, self-esteem, certain talents) unite with the feminine attributes of the sign (talents, art, design, sensuality). The new moon (and even more the day after) is a great time to start something new that relates to Taurus’ archetype: art, design, cooking, music, colors, values, self-esteem, gardening, remodeling, finance, talents, security, luxury, jewelry, makeup, flowers, pleasure, pottery. Maybe take drawing classes, or learn to play an instrument. Watch some videos for vegan dessert making, bird-watching, hiking in nature etc.

Since Taurus is associated with finance and money, April 22nd is a good day to do something practical or symbolic that can represent a beginning for a new financial avenue. Maybe start something that relates to an old talent you might have developed a while back that now can help you increase or add to your income.  

One aspect that makes this new moon a bit more hectic is Uranus, the planet of chaos, unpredictability and disruption, sitting in conjunction to the sun and moon. Uranus has been in Taurus since May 2018 but became more stable in Taurus since Nov 2019. Last time Uranus visited Taurus was during the Great Depression in the 30s. Uranus is the joker, the fool, he is the Great Awakener. Uranus will be in Taurus until 2026 and is supposed to change the way we look at economy, finance, and currencies. Since Uranus is located on the new moon, we can expect a few volatile weeks with a great deal of ups and downs. However, Uranus in Taurus can be brilliant, bring about new technologies that can change the way we look at economy. 

Synchronicity: Earth Day April 22
More and more studies are being published daily concerning the earth’s reaction to the lower human activities since the global lock-down. From animal reclaiming the concrete fields of our cities to the earth herself relaxing, breathing and regenerating. This is from Nature.com:

Researchers who study Earth’s movement are reporting a drop in seismic noise — the hum of vibrations in the planet’s crust — that could be the result of transport networks and other human activities being shut down. They say this could allow detectors to spot smaller earthquakes and boost efforts to monitor volcanic activity and other seismic events.

A noise reduction of this magnitude is usually only experienced briefly around Christmas, says Thomas Lecocq, a seismologist the Royal Observatory of Belgium in Brussels, where the drop has been observed.

Well, remember the song “I wish it was Christmas everyday.” as they say, be careful what you wish for as it might just happen. And this is from The Atlantic:

According to an analysis by Marshall Burke, a professor in Stanford’s Earth-system science department, a pandemic-related reduction in particulate matter in the atmosphere—the deadliest form of air pollution—likely saved the lives of 4,000 young children and 73,000 elderly adults in China over two months this year.
