The New Moon begins in Taurus on the 25th May 2017 at 20:44 GMT
The Moon in Taurus has a great need for financial and material security, this Moon is fond of good food and material comforts to keep her satiated and emotionally fulfilled. Overindulgence can be this Moons downfall as she tends to comfort eat when the going gets tough. It is so important for the Moon in Taurus to keep herself busy and upbeat, maintaining a routine will help her to not succumb to idle luxury.
As a lover of art and music, THETA, binaural beats and creative visualisation would be a great asset of curbing this Moon’s moody and stubborn nature alongside deep breathing techniques. As Taurus rules the throat, this Moon is vulnerable to problems with her vocal chords; tonsillitis is the most common problem. Shallow Breathing is also another vulnerability as well as rheumatism. Breathing techniques together with THETA would help to alleviate her stress and insecurities. A good intake of vitamins and minerals are also important as this Moon suffers the most when it comes to ‘vitamin deficiencies’ which can lead to thyroid problems.
This is definitely a time to begin a healthy regime when it comes to our physical health, as the Moon in Taurus can tend to leave us feeling sluggish, inactive and emotionally insecure. On a positive level the Taurus Moon can give us the stamina and persistence we need to continue the healthy regime once started, although a good kick may be needed to get started. As this is a Super Moon, the planetary energy coming in will be very strong. Rebellion will probably be the theme of this New Moon, especially when it comes to our relationships both personal and social.
The Black Moon Lilith is in Ophiuchus this New Moon casting her shadow of persecution and her fear of alienation. In opposition to our New Super Moon it will amplify our emotional natures, where our deepest fears and insecurities can surface in dramatic ways, causing the negative attributes of the Taurus Moon to emanate upon our psyches.
Mind versus matter and material values versus spiritual values this New Moon. We will have to make wise choices under very difficult conditions.
For this New Moon I would suggest concentrating on the Throat, Solar Plexus and Root Chakra’s and using the colour Blue in meditations. Burn a Blue Candle and Cedarwood and/or Sage incense for courage, strength, wisdom, and clarity. Diet, vitamins/minerals and exercise routines are a must as confused emotions and deep fears need to be released in a constructive way. Use self empowering affirmations such as: I see fear as the fuel for my success and take bold action in spite of fear.
