New Moon in Taurus
April 22, 2020
The new moon in Taurus at 3-degrees (give or take 6-degree orb) will void across the sky on April 22, 2020 at 10:25 pm EST, 7:25 pm PST. Those that will be affected by this moon will be those who have Taurus anywhere in their chart, additionally, Cardinal signs who have 25 to 29 degrees and fixed signs who have 0 to 7 degrees will be affected.
As we move through the seasons and between the full and new moons, we face changing times. The lunar changes occur with the new moon always provoking endings, not new beginnings as most western astrology’s suggest. (Read more about it here)
In some ways, I can only pray that we learn from our past so that 19-20 years from now, events of the past do not repeat themselves. On April 23, 2001, new moon in Taurus was on the exact degree, date, and time (read more about it here things from the past here). This means that very similar issues may occur around the world and something must come to an end to make room for a better tomorrow. Similar energies may have been felt on April 25, 2009 and April 21, 2012. However, on the other hand, something that began on October 27, 2015 and similar energies on October 28, 2004, October 26, 2007, and October 29, 2012 may end.
Scientifically, perhaps a new gene therapy could lead to a cure of COVID-19 as a similar situation did in 2015? However, COVID-19 is not new, it was first discovered in lizards in Indonesia, they named them “Komodo Dragons.” Then again, a major breakthrough is occurring all over again, whereas the Spanish flu strain that was responsible for the 1918 pandemic which killed 60 million people worldwide was linked to bird flu and was successfully created in a lab. Could there be a link to that strain now? This is something that is yet to be determined.
One thing for sure, this beautiful moon will bring forth endings, but the energy will be wonderful to finally roll up our sleeves and work harder than ever before, as Taurus values money and how to put away money. Perhaps the heavens above are teaching us to do the same.
A moon in Taurus presents a vivid time to deliver specific resolve; the lessons spin around encouragement and being satisfied. The energy is right for making impetuous changes and following through on natures.
Emotional responses are serene and constant, while shying away from any hostility. However, if there is a strong feeling of earnestness, then there is a need for inflexibility and vanity. There is a greater need for a calm environment. Perhaps the need is to be creative through music or singing, but there is a greater need to nurture others by providing for their needs and being on the feminine side of our nature.
The Moon in Taurus ushers in a time of care and sensibleness. People may feel more traditional and firmer. This is a good time end projects that have already been started and understand we cannot fit a square peg in a round hole. People may be more reliable and systematic. Like the stubborn Bull representative of Taurus, people may be bull-headed — reluctant to find the middle ground and confrontational. Care needs to be taken to evade indulgence and unnecessary worry or desire for material possessions.
Every month opens the avenue of change and transformation, as it highlights a specific celestial sign. What I bring to you is NOT astrology, rather Vedic Philosophical Ayurvedic Theory based upon numerology, Ayurvedic theories, and predispositions. The planets determinate are not based on western or eastern ideologies, rather philosophical transformation.
If you are looking for an exact predisposition in your sign and how this moon will impact you, it may be advisable to seek out either a western or eastern astrologer.
For those other than Taurus, to find an overall prospective for your sign it is recommended that you look to a combination of the Lunar eclipse, Solar eclipse, and/or full or new moon in your sign to give a general predisposition.
The predictions for Taurus are based on the next 3-month prospect, however, it could very well change during the solar eclipse, lunar eclipse, and Mercury retrograde in the next few months.
Dearest Taurus, even if the year seems bleak because of sluggish energy, and seeing others only online, you might see your work life is not so bad. Be careful if you are in business for yourself, and do not extend credit. Stay as focused as you can as you will see by the middle of May, you may have to work harder than ever before. During the eclipse time things may become much more challenging. Financially however, you may not see much change for you until the middle of May. However, be careful with how you spend as you may spoil what you’ve earned without saving at the end of May to end of June. In areas of interpersonal relationships, there may be constant questioning due to your own insecurities. Give people plenty of space and stop the accusations which build drama. Be very cautious as minor accidents could occur; blood pressure and upper respiratory issues could occur.
Saturn: There will be a possibility of disappointments in the workplace and because of this you may become a little lazy in how you do things. Remain calm and patient, plus you should take care with how you communicate with people.
Rahu: Mindfulness regarding finances is necessary during this period. Be careful with what you say to people as it may come out wrong. Over confidence is not working in your best interests.
Ketu: Overspending is going to cause plenty of financial problems and there could be problems with your legs. Exercise will do you good. Avoid borrowing or lending money to anyone.
Uranus: At this time, it is important that you remain vigilant to patience, understanding, and collaboration with all to succeed in whom you are becoming.
Chiron: It’s time to bring your own morals and principles into the picture by stopping addictive natures such as substance abuse (i.e. drinking, doing drugs or anything that changes your personality), and there is a high probability of financial difficulties, but your strength grows when things are difficult.
Dear Taurus, this year, at least up until September, things will seem very confusing for you. If you sit around and do nothing it will not do you any good. Things may not seem easy, therefore, stay focused on your work or occupation, as any old or new relationships may not give you back what you put out there. Spending without savings may leave you in a major financial crisis. Personal relationships can only be good if you stop putting him/her down or revealing personal flaws to other people and leave your personal life very private. Be careful to eat right and exercise as this may a time for allergies and or virus.
Since the moon in Taurus represents Tranquil, Real, Sensual, Enduring, and Tenacious, we must use the sensible senses. It is recommended to recite a mantra every morning until the next moon cycle. This year, there is only one easy mantra, both for those who are learning and for those who are experts and perfecting the sounds.
The mantra for Taurus moon is:
Aum Gopalay Utterdhvajay Namaha
(om Go pal ay Utt er dh ajay namaha)
May this moon bring productivity and prosperity in everything you do. Please remember until our world begins to move do not expect change. Therefore, validity of readings during this time will supply no change. Thus, not recommending any readings until social distancing begins to lift
