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.
