New Path: New Moon in Taurus

New Moon in Taurus


Maharani Rutan©

The New moon will enter Taurus on May 03, 2011 at, 1:51 pm EST, 10:51 pm (May 02, 2011) at 13 degrees.  Notice must be taken that every new moon since 2010 has been at 13 degrees in the sign that magnified that month. Though timing of this moon may be off due to how it is calculated this is at 6 degree orb.

New moon is powerful in many ways.  Frequently, it is a time of hope and desires; hence it is also a time to evaluate if your aspirations are universally attainable.   Examining the values of wants it may be advisable to make sure they have no bias and selfness and if so they will be granted. At the same time there is a high chance that there will be confusion between the needs and wants.  Understanding the needs will always take priority over the wants through this new moon.

May 11th: Mars enters Taurus.  The scales tip as the weight of five planets in Aries shifts towards Taurus when Mars enters the fixed earth sign on May 11th with Mercury and Venus following suit just four days later. ” Lee Stillwaters

Sensuality and greater awareness of our physical bodies is heightened as four personal planets step in unison through Taurus for almost six days until the Sun enters Gemini on May 21st.  During the following two weeks, lovely Venus walks beside her masculine counterpart Mars at a festival of bursting spring blossoms.” Lee Stillwaters

The new moon is also a time for a rebirth; it is a blessing to give ourselves a fresh start. A new moon gives ample energy to come out of hiding and bring something new in your life. There is an itch to take immediate action without thinking things through.  Whether it is small change or just changing what is done on a daily basis.  Perhaps taking a different road to work, which has more scenery but it takes longer. Or even simple as making realizing that something new has to enter your life as you take the wonderful journey which we call life.

“Venus enters Taurus on May 16, along with Mercury, the planet of communication.  Venus in Taurus will change the pace of love energy from ardent and assertive to a slower, more laid back sensual kind of approach. We may become more materialistic and concerned with image and the way we appear to others.” Leslie Hale

“Taurus is the natural ruler of the second house of money, possessions and self image. Planets in Taurus move slower, but it is a fixed sign meaning intent is stronger.  What comes to mind is the old children’s story of the hare and the turtle. The hare challenges the turtle to a race and soon leaves the turtle behind confident he has won.  Midway he takes a nap and awakens to find the turtle with his steady crawl has actually arrived before him.  This is the realm of planets entering Taurus. While the energy and pace may slow down, it is the final finish that counts the most.” Leslie Hale

“With four planets in Taurus by May 16 the focus will be on your love life if you are a Capricorn or Capricorn ascendant, looking for love.  This is an extra special time to meet someone significant with both Venus and Mars in the same sign in your fifth house of love.  This combination also works well for Taureans, who will get a major boost with the planets of love dancing through their sign through June 10.  It also works well for Virgo and the water signs. ” Leslie Hale

“Taurus is a female sign and represents the spirit of creation and nature itself.  Now, the seeds planted during the time of Aries can flourish into strong thoughts, ideas and actions.” Leslie Hale

Taurus moon allows ample power to commit to personal goals, which will revolve it self around comfort and contentment. The oomph is enough to make right spur-of-the-moment decisions while following your intuition. This is a time to act from the heart without bias and selfness and trust the process will give the result that is needed to live for the moment.  To be the unique energy that belongs with the stars and heaven.

It is time to take a chance.  Find the vision that you wish to create.  There is absolute calmness in the air and perhaps there is a need to avoid adversaries. But it there is indication that avoiding confrontation clearly discredits who you are or what you believe in, then there is an absolute need to defend the position which is righteously yours. The need to have a tranquil surrounding is a need for this new moon. Perhaps even the tone of your voice from assertive or aggressive to may change to more calming and understanding.  Through this process a voice will carry a tune which is melodious and surprisingly bring out the musical talents which were never discovered before.

Mars, the planet of energy, and our ‘blood’, passions, and creative energies leaves Aries, the sign it rules, on May 11th, and heads for Taurus, the sign of love, work, real estate, and investments.” Rex Estell

”The Warrior planet joins the Sun, and soon lucky, expansive Jupiter will follow, bringing financial blessings to those who are willing to ‘make’ things that are ‘new’, and let go of old patterns in order to benefits from the new arrangements the Stars have aligned for us in the past month or so.” Rex Estell

Venus, ruler of Taurus, conjuncts Jupiter, in Aries, and the ruler of Mars, on the same day, boosting the lucky and fortunate energies.  Not only that, Mercury conjuncts Jupiter as well! This is a big day in the Stars, as Mars rules things that are ‘first’, and in the ‘now’.” Rex Estell

The mixture of what is practical and spiritual and what is known will encourage self consciousness to make life much easier.  The focus to accumulate, develop, increase personal and material issues will be welcomed with great rewards at this time.

The drama of the last full moon or rather little before and during the full moon gave many the ground work needed to verbalize what they feel. The way it was said and how it was said was previously been caution and through the full moon there was a need to let it out.  Now the new moon ushers the new dimension.  This does not mean that the assertiveness and aggressiveness will continue but what ever that was said or needed to be said is said and it is time to discover the outcome of those lessons and move forwards.

The Moon in Taurus ushers in a time of prudence and common sense. There is a feel of conservatives and stability.  A good time to continue or finish projects which were started and never finish.  This type of forging may cause people to be to be stubborn and unwilling to compromise.  Extra care is needed to avoid self-indulgence and excessive concerns to acquire material possessions.

The moon in Taurus represents a tranquil, sensible, physical, tolerant, and willful tendency which means the use of practical senses is the best alternative through this new moon energy.  The magnificent liveliness of this energy calls for more grounded personality and to be tuned into earth.  Through relationship between earth and humans there is a gift of seeking new ways to have more security and cohesion in our lives between nature and nurture.  The new moon energy encourages emphasis on body, mind and soul transformations.

You may also choose to recite a mantra every morning until the next moon cycle. Remember that with all applications of psalms and mantras achieving the desired result is depended upon the quality of intention, and when it comes to finding a satisfying relationships and success, it is of the greatest importance to begin with a clear understanding of what your goal should be. The mantras can be hard to pronounce for many but it is a powerful source of energy the mantra for Taurus moon is:

Om Sri shukraya Namaha

(om Shri Shu Kra Ya Nama Ha)

 Remember the 12 aspirations.  Don’t forget to cross the ones you have already accomplished and make new ones. Don’t forget to manifest matters concerning materialistic things at this time.  And most of all don’t forget to light a white candle that day carve your name on the candle anoint the candle with Frankincense oil and chant Psalm 65 three times.

In this article I have had a wonderful opportunity to be having awesome Astrologers participate in writing a little abstract of their materials.  As you can see they take pride in what they know and what you they do.  I highly encourage you to have a look at personal pages for vast amount of information which can help you in your transitions through these celestial transformations and to be able to better understand your path.

Though Astrologers can give you a path way of transitions through life and what to expect, Vedic readings encompasses the roads ahead and give us the ability to change our destiny in such a way that it benefits us.  In addition, Vedic reading focuses on prevention, predetermined attitudes and behaviors so that we are aware of them.  To able to choose the path through the forks of free will or to choose to create a utopian world which we like to live in.

A Vedic reader will NEVER tell you what to do, yet allow you to choose the road that is best for you through choices of acceptance or change.  Often it is all in the attitude and understand from which we play a larger role in which is call humanity.  This kind of perception can not be embrace without spirituality, self-preservation and humility.

Astrology and Vedic readings are intertwined and together you can receive the most vivid path.  Therefore, I highly recommend that you find an Astrologer which you feel comfortable with and take good notes.  Afterwards, I recommend that you speak to a Vedic reader who can help you assist in accepting, changing and resolving issues that may stand in your way through human experiences.

I wish you the most productive New moon and may you succeed in every venture you take with great pride and perseverance.  And remember if it is meant to be it will be otherwise you may need to let go.

Pink Moon: Full Moon in Libra April 2011

Pink Moon : Full Moon in Libra

April 17, 2011


Maharani Rutan©

On April 17, 2011, we will have a Full moon transiting in Libra at 28 degrees.  The full illumination could be seen around 1:10 pm EST and 10:10 pm Pacific transiting 6 degrees orb.

According to the farmers almanac the first full moon in April is usually referred to as a Pink moon or the Grass Moon.  Often the reference of the Pink moon is due to the color of herb moss which looks dusty pink during the full moon light.  At the same time Green moon is when the grass turns green and brings life back to bare grass ground.

This is an important aspect for Liberians as well as those that have Libra or cardinal signs in their charts. This moon will set the stage for the sky to open up this summer.  This is also to build a foundation to end the series of eclipses which have rocked the foundation of cardinal signs for 3 years and the last gasp will be this summer.

It has been a given fact that full moons do affect our views of people and often makes us irritable.  Though some it has been a myth or urban legions. The scientific facts concur that pressure of the water current against the moon cause many erratic behaviors in people.  Water is attracted towards the moon when the moon is full which increases the pressure of water retentions and hermitages around the world including people, places and things.

As human beings we are philosophical people and our thought will be a bit distorted on the full moon night as the moons gravitational affect the ocean ties and because humans are 80 percent water our behaviors can also affect how we rationalize things. The full moon may cause deviant behavior and trigger anger, premature labor as well as bleeding.

When the Moon is full, the gravitational pull between the Moon on one side of the earth and the Sun on the other has a great affect on our own bodily water levels, as well as the earth’s. You may or may not notice the effect (depending on how powerful the Moon is in your Astrological chart), but there is no doubt that this energy creates an inner pull, fullness – and may help us to connect psychically with others. Everything becomes clearer and more concentrated under the light of the Full Moon – passion and self-esteem can become quite magnified, and we may have more consciousness and spotlight on relationships. There is a good chance to get a splurge of energy by light of the Moon and have more incandescent dreams.

Even though this moon is placed to bring light on relationship issues, the sun in Aries will bring polarity in everyone.  It’s a reflection of one self in others lives and what ever that is put out there will come back to you whether good or bad, therefore, being the best you can will be the optimal way to go. Focusing on needs of others will defiantly bring brownie points during this full moon emphasis.

The full moon brings with it different diplomacy.  Some may find balance between independence and unity.  However, there maybe some tension between our personal space to be alone and feeling so alone to revert to be someone.  Therefore it is suggest that you do not make any decisions as to relationship issues until the energy of the moon has pass the orb.  This is 2 days before and after the full moon.

Bleeding and blood loss are more likely during a Full Moon, so take care. This is the time to Harvest, Pray and be Thankful, and to work on fertility and prosperity.  Love and Romance go wild under a Full Moon, especially around midnight. In a full moon you may become highly objective, clear minded and aware of your own needs and the needs of others. Listen to your inner voice and seek a balance that is important not about power and control.  There are no winners or losers in a relationship there are only learned individuals.

“With Pluto Retrograde, Mercury Retrograde until the 23rd, and Saturn Retrograde until the 12th of June, a slow down in our daily outcomes is delayed, until forward movement of these planets allows us to decide ‘once and for all’, instead of waffling, switching, flip flopping, and reversing our plans every 15 minutes. ” Rex Estell

“Saturn Rx in Libra opposing Mars in Aries adds to the theme of separations, as this doubles the effects of the Full Moon, like an exclamation point, so all is exposed that needs to be, especially matters of fairness, justice, equality, peace and balance.” Rex Estell

“Saturn Retrograde in Libra is headed for another square to Pluto in Capricorn, though after June 12th, the showdown is averted, and we pick up the pieces and move on. The New Moon of Taurus allows us to make real all that we’ve been initiating, and your persistence is required now, for the outcome desired to manifest in June/July.” Rex Estell

Perhaps there is a feeling that there is too much take and not enough received and the burdens are just too much to carry.  This moon questions our capabilities to accept other people’s duties or letting it go.  The pressure of this moon will not keep many quite like they should if so than speak in truth and honesty.  Don’t over analyze, emotions may get the best of most of us and be rational.  Due to the volcanoes within our emotions it may be that control issues may not allow balance to be restored as it should, therefore watching what you say to avoided heated arguments may come through collaboration rather than silence or arguments.   Negotiate the needs and find sacrifices which are needed to alter your own identity so that relationship can be honored.

Mercury will continue to retrograde it may be a time where old flames may come into the picture or that old issues will come to the surface, be careful to make hasty decisions during retrograde.  Read more about mercury retrograde and its expectations here.

The full moon brings with it energy to plant and harvest.  A moon in Libra, there is a need to have pleasant relationship with an affectionate partner to feel at peace psychologically. There is an urge to continually evaluate emotions, seeking just the right balance with others. There is also a flare for splendor and fine arts, and can express these in a significant way. Nurturing others by treating them fairly and seeing their beautiful qualities is the theme for this full moon.  There also could be to idealization of mother or motherly figure to model of magnificence, gentleness, charisma and equality.

Libra Moon values harmonious relationships. Pleasing people that are close to us and encourages people to be look after others with benevolence, and delightful manner with music and beautiful things. Libra Moon needs close friendship, partnership or marriage to feel nurtured and safe.  A need for peace, harmony and pleasant surroundings is a must. In emotional situations, the Libra Moon tends to act very rationally and strives to make fair decisions.  People will have strong sensitivity to and attraction for others.  This comes from the Libran search for harmony and balance, for the Libra nature accentuates teamwork.

It’s a good time to form joint venture of all natures—friendships, marriages, and business. The planet Venus (Libra) accepts apparent the environment as a gracious, liberal nature and a desire to beautify many things rules Libra. It is an excellent time for artistic work as the beauty of Venus is a combine with intellectual ease of an air sign. Altogether it’s a lovely time for social gathering, when the consciousness of self as expressed in the first six signs of the zodiac, becomes united with the awareness of needs and desires of others.

Since, moon in Libra represents Charming, Attractive, and Luxurious, Fair-Minded, Loving it is my suggestion for us to remain balanced.  This full moon is extraordinary to many signs. It is my suggestion that you purchase a yellow candle and carve your name one through the wick.  Anoint the candle with lavender oil or peppermint and chant the psalm 26.

You may also choose to recite a mantra every morning until the next moon cycle. Remember that with all applications of psalms and mantras achieving the desired result is depended upon the quality of intention, and when it comes to finding satisfying relationships, it is of the greatest importance to begin with a clear understanding of what your goal should be. The mantras can be hard to pronounce for many but it is a powerful source of energy the mantra for Libra moon is:

Om Shukrya Namaha

(Om Shoo-krah-yah Nahm-ah-ah)

This mantra produces the quality of friendship within oneself including others.

The intention of this mantra is smooth your path in life by helping you understand the lessons you have set for your self and through karma the negativity will surpass with every moon cycle, remember to cross out the old affirmation even if there is a slightest change and create new ones. The perfect number for aspiration is 10.  This means to list 10 aspirations and recite them every night until the next moon cycle.  Remember never make the affirmations beginning with “I balance”, it must be worded “I need balance in my life with friendship and love.”

Many people have asked the question how often they should have a reading done by a physic or a tarot reader.  In my opinion an in depth reading should be done every moon cycle or when it is affecting you astrologically.  Since, every moon cycle represents a change it not only affects our external forces but our internal forces as well.  Of course, we all have burning questions every now and then and it maybe necessary to have a reading done more often, but sometime we have to let universe take its course.

This newsletter focuses on tendencies which may not individually relate to persons chart rather it is a stepping stone for tendencies of our environment.  To find out how this full moon will affect you astrologically, it is advisable to set up a time with a recommended astrological advisor.

Vedic readings encompasses upon changeable destiny and forks that lay ahead for Karmic changes and how our own wiliness to beautify and make changes which allows prosperity and happiness in our lives.  Vedic reading is a path way to changes and acceptable things in our lives where Astrology brings a foundation of the path.  Together they bring symphony of cohesion to bring peaceful resolutions.

This full moon will have a great impact on cardinal signs and it is advisable to have an updated reading on your self.  Remember for every ending there is always a new beginning.

Wishing you a harmonious full moon.
