New Moon in Taurus April 2012

New Moon in Taurus

April 21, 2012

By Maharani Rutan

The new moon in Taurus at 1 degree (give or take 6 degree orb) will void across the sky on April 21, 2011 at 12:05 am EST, 9:05 pm (April 20, 2011) PST.  Those that will be affected by this moon will be those that have 0 to Taurus anywhere in their chart, additionally, Cardinal signs that have 25 to 29 degrees and fixed signs those 0 to 7 degrees.

Mercury retrograde has already begun moving forward to station and has reentered Pisces where it will remain until April 24, 2012.  This means that most of us will have emotions that we are uncertain about and there are still good possibilities to revisit things from the past.  Read about Mercury retrograde here.

New moon is influential in many ways, often times known as wish fulfillment days. This means if the wishes are without partiality and selfishness then they would most likely manifest. Sometimes it can cause confusion and our needs become a conflict with our wants and needs.  The new moon is also a time of regeneration – a time when fresh starts are needed.

The New Moon signals a time of new beginnings, a  need to take the incentive make something big and if it is a small change or even a new way of looking at life.  It is time for a brand new journey into material, academic or new projects. With new journey of greatness and adventure as a focal point

A moon in Taurus presents a brilliant time to entrust to individual purpose; the lessons gyrate around reassurance and being content. The energy is right for making impulsive shifts and following through on instincts. This is the time to act from passion, trusting, taking risk, living in the moment and dancing to one’s own drummer.

The New Moon sanctifies new beginnings and encourages taking a chance! Questioning motives to create something new, with a vision of manifestation of dreams and turning them into reality. Emotional reactions are tranquil and stable, and shying away from any confrontation. However, if there is a strong feeling of urgency, then there is a need of stubbornness and egotism. There is a greater need for a calm environment. Perhaps a need to be creative through music or singing, but there is a greater need to nurture others by providing for their needs and being the feminine side.

The Moon in Taurus ushers in a time of vigilance and reasonableness. People may feel more traditional and unwavering. This is a good time to continue or to end projects that have already been started, as people may be more dependable and methodical. Like the stubborn Bull representative of Taurus, people may be bull-headed — unwilling to compromise and argumentative. Care needs to be taken to avoid self-indulgence and excessive anxiety or yearning for material possessions.

Since the moon in Taurus represents Relaxed, Practical, Sensual, Patient, and Stubborn, we must use the reasonable senses. It is recommended 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 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 off 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

Many people have asked the question how often they should have a reading done by a physic or a tarot reader.  In my opinion, a Vedic in depth reading should be done every moon cycle.  Since every moon cycle represents a transformation, 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 sometimes we have to let the universe take its course.  When dealing with a tragic situation it is my suggestion that before you have a reading done you must clear away negativity and fear from your emotions so that a reader can give you the clearest reading possible.

Remember that every psychic bases all of their telephone readings on your vigor. So remember to ask guidance from the higher power before having a reading so that you can be neutral with your energy.  The clearest answers can be given when energy is at a neutral point.  Never get a reading when your energy is scattered because you may not receive the best reading possible.  98% of all psychics are empathic and clairvoyant so this energy is very important to them as well as you.   Always remember that every reader has their boundaries as to how far in the future they want to read.  This is of their choice; however, reading beyond 6 months is a very hazy situation. Our free will plays an important role in our destiny and we are able to change anything.  This is the main reason why many readers do not go beyond the 3 to 6 month mark.


May this moon bring productivity and prosperity in everything you do.




Full Fish Moon: April 06, 2012

Full Fish Moon

Full Moon in Libra

April 06,2012

by Maharani Rutan


On April 06, 2012, we will have a full moon transiting in Libra at 17 degrees.  The full moon will illuminate the sky around 3:19 pm EST and 12:19 pm Pacific transiting 6 degrees orb.

In earlier centuries, seasons were actually calculated by the way the moon and the sun rose and set.  April was a very significant time for many people as it signified the coming of spring. Often, the full moon in April was called the Full Fish moon; this is when fishing was its best because the fish swam up-stream to spawn. It was also called the Pink moon due to the pink hew which the moon reflected on moss. It is also a time to bring green back into our grass.


This will affect all those that have Libra in their charts as well as cardinal signs. With Saturn in Libra, this moon is going to be one of those push-pull moons between responsibilities and relationships.  This is a relationship moon; not just romantic, but business also.  It will question the essence of responsibilities within every relationship.

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 and fullness which may help us to connect psychologically with others. Everything becomes lucid and more intense under the light of the Full Moon – zeal and confidence can become quite magnified, and we may have more perception and spotlight on relationships. There is a good chance to get a surge of energy by light of the Moon and have more luminous dreams.

Even though this moon is to bring clarity on relationships, responsibilities and expectations, the sun is still in Aries, and Mercury has already began to move direct. These planetary emphases will bring reflection of the self, and in others lives, to realize karma, as we know it, will make a full circle.  Spotlighting on the needs of others will definitely bring about positive changes during this period

The full moon brings with it random discretion.  Some may find equilibrium between sovereignty and harmony.  However, there may be some strain between our private spaces to be alone, and feeling so alone that we will find anyone that fills the void.  This could leave one with an extremely bad taste at the end of the day.  Therefore it is suggested that you do not make any decisions in regard to relationship issues until the energy of the moon has passed the orb.  This is 3 to 4 days before and after the full moon.

With Pluto in retrograde the sign of relief will be here on April 10, 2012.  Mercury will remain in retrograde until the 23rd and Mars retrogrades until April 13, 2012. Saturn remains in retrograde until June 25, 2012. With all the planets moving direct, this is a time to reconsider the lessons learned during these difficult transits. These slowdowns have allowed many to make permanent decisions by forcing people not to flip flop, switch and change minds. With Venus Squaring Mars, Neptune and Uranus there is no telling what could happen; both wonderful sit-downs with bosses and loved ones to clear the air or outrageous arguments. Manifest positivity during this time – remembering the Solar Eclipse is not too far away.

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 productiveness and success.  Love and romance go untamed under a full moon, especially around midnight. In a full moon there is high objectivity, clear mindedness and an awareness 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.

Perhaps there is a feeling that there is too much taken and not enough received or that 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 quiet like they should, if so, then speak in truth and honesty.  Don’t over analyze, emotions may get the best of most of us – 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 avoid 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 relationships can be honored.

The full moon brings with it vigor to plant and harvest.  While the moon is in Libra, there is a need to have a satisfying relationship with an affectionate partner to feel at peace psychologically. There is an urge to frequently assess emotions, seeking just the right equilibrium with others. There is also a flare for splendor and fine arts, and express these in a significant way. Encouraging others by treating them fairly and seeing their stunning individuality is the theme for this full moon.  There also could be an admiration of a mother or motherly figure to model brilliance, tenderness, charisma and egalitarianism.

Libra Moon values melodious relationships. Pleasing people that are close to us and encourages people to look after others with generosity, and delightful manner with music and beautiful things. Libra Moon needs close a friendship, partnership or marriage to feel nurtured and protected.  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 projects of all natures—friendships, marriages, and business. The planet Venus (Libra) accepts the obvious and their environment must be sociable. 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 combined 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.  Enjoy this time since Venus will turn retrograde May 15, 2012 which will pose characters of reconsideration to a relationship.

Since, moon in Libra represents Charming, Attractive, Luxurious, Fair-Minded, and 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 through to 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 dependent 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 to smooth your path in life by helping you understand the lessons you have set for yourself and through karma, the negativity will slowly go away with every moon cycle; remember to cross out the old affirmation even if there is the 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 to 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 psychic 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 sometimes we have to let universe take its course.

Please note I am not a astrologer but rather a Vedic reader, which means 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 pathway 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.

Please note that these are general tendencies and may not necessary reflect personal characteristics.  Therefore, for personal astrological readings please contact my recommended astrologers Leslie Hale or Lee Stillwaters for the latest trends in your chart. And for the short term readings and changes you may contact me at

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 the best of this moon and I hope that it brings inspiration. Love to you always.
