TAURUS NEW MOON

Numerology of the Day:
[5+6+2+0+1+6 = 20 = 2+0 = 2]
2 is a number that can go either way. It is the foray into the world of options, so often times important choices must be made that alter the course of one’s life. 2 is a versatile number, so instead of making a hard decision, the 2 suggests embracing multiple realities at once until a mutual solution presents itself. Positively, this could be called consideration. Negatively, this might be seen as deception or duplicity. Could it be both? It could! 2 is full of contradictions like that, and it doesn’t always make logical sense. This could have something to do with 2’s association with the feminine/yin energy, to which irrationality is attributed in this patriarchal society. Along the lines of the feminine force, intuition is probably strongest wherever sensitive 2 is involved.
On one hand, 2 is delicate and impressionable, often yielding to apparently stronger entities. On the other hand, 2 is so fluid that it is unlikely to break, even under the most oppressive circumstances. This number can be quite surprising as it is full of withheld information, evidenced by the bits, pieces and secrets that are revealed when the moment is right. Proof that you always get more than you bargain for when working with a number like this, these carefully metered revelations are indicative of a hidden reserve of alluring depth that is only unveiled to the select few “initiates” who pass the test. It takes a lot to be let inside, so to know 2 is not only to love 2, but to be loved by 2. Care to double the fun?
Speaking of love, the number 2 rules over romantic relationships and other interpersonal involvements, including conflicts. Sharing, exchanges, and all interactions are ruled by 2. Despite emphasis on social refinement and seamless cooperation, 2 can manifest as timidity, and isn’t always conducive to standing in the spotlight. Even so, 2 is such a charming vibration that audiences form regardless of the preference of privacy.
Major Arcana Tarot Correspondence for Taurus:
When strife is overtakes stability, there is always that one constant that can be relied on for those who have been led astray. This could very well be a religious figure who assists in the process of spiritual alignment, but less literally, maybe it’s as simple as a prayer or a ritual that is esteemed for its ability to bring order to all the madness of the world. When times are tough, it is of the utmost importance to know where [and to whom] to turn, for time is of the essence and every man must save himself before its too late.
Before projecting a wholesome superiority onto any old tradition or contracted official, it must be verified. Even the most tried, true, and trusted institution is capable of succumbing to corruption. Is there a hidden agenda, and if so, what is it?
The New Moon is the monthly meeting of the Sun and the Moon in the same sign. This combination makes for a great potency that, when harnessed, encourages anything that is initiated or asked. The best time to set New Moon intentions is the following few days after the aspect is exact, once the dust has settled, but the day of is usually fine too. Warning: avoid setting intentions before the New Moon is exact and/or during the void-of-course moon. [See below for the best times to make your wish.]

If I said I want your body now, would you hold it against me? You can’t hurry love. Don’t stop til you get enough.

Taurus always gets its money’s worth, and with both the Sun and Moon in Taurus, there’s nothing better than a prized possession. It’s all about owning something of great value, something that make sense, and holding on it for as long as possible. Life can be so easy that way. The New Moon in Taurus is conducive to determining what really matters, and as long as it all still works, there’s no point in discarding it.
Everyone’s resolve is rock-steady when Taurus is involved, and this New Moon can be used to solidify or stabilize something that might have started off shaky, or at least uncertain. For extra staying power, emphasis will need to be placed upon whatever is would be most desirable as a long term reality. Any endeavor initiated today will be an influence for a while to come. Keep in mind, though, Taurus isn’t fast paced or action packed, but rather slow to start with an impressive rhythm once established. And for anyone praying to boost stamina, rest assured that “Once you pop… the fun won’t stop!” on the Taurus New Moon.
The energy today is fertile, which is beautiful for those who wish for a fruitful new beginning. There is a chance that income will increase in some way, because money is surely circulating, but only to those who are open to receive a financial gift. The Law of Attraction is the most powerful weapon to wield right now with the New Moon in Taurus.
Physical pleasure is also of extreme importance at the moment. To celebrate this Taurus New Moon, it is advisable to be as deliberately comfortable as possible. Indulging the senses on a day like this will surely yield similarly enjoyable experiences in the future. Whether it’s good food, great music, or gratifying sex – or even something as simple as as an oversized sweater on a chilly day, or the oil of jasmine to melt away unnecessary stress – any sort of sensual fulfillment is encouraged, with respect to each individual’s respective value system.
Every sign has thirty degrees, and this month the Sun and Moon meet in Taurus at the 16th degree, the symbolic image of this degree according to Janduz is,”Amid a barren landscape, a man swims against the current of a river, while on the bank, a bull tied to a tree strives to free itself.” Does that mean anything to you?
Tap into Taurus’ artsy nature by painting a picture of something [or someone] you wish to acquire. If you have actual paint and a brush, that is ideal, but a pencil or pen on a napkin scrap will get the job done. Focus on all the ways you will benefit from this possession, and how much you will appreciate it for making life more enjoyable, but also take time to honor the beauty of its form. What are its dimensions? Once you have recreated an image of your next acquisition, infuse this masterpiece with affirmations such as “I have…”, as well as keywords and symbols that increase your chances to magnetizing that which is meant for you. Whether it is actually a painting or napkin art, make this picture as pretty as possible.
Also, if you’re able, give this art a personal touch by branding it with your fingerprint [or all ten of them]. If you’re feeling extra creative, add in a special ingredient 😉 for rich blend of color and a pop of texture that cannot be achieved by paint, ink, or lead.
BEFORE YOU DRAW, however, why not set the mood? Here are some easy to find materials and resources you might wish to incorporate as talismans to boost the power of your cosmic requests and affirmations…
Colors [for Candles, Clothing, etc]: Green, Brown, Earth Tones
Plants/Herbs/Spices: Poppy, foxglove, rose
Crystals: Emerald, Sapphire
Intention Setting Timeline:
As mentioned above, it is best to avoid setting intentions BEFoRE the New Moon reaches the point of its exactitude and DURiNG the void-of-course moon, as both scenarios would weaken the celestial receptivity we have been discussing. Here are periods of time I believe are best to set intentions, make a wish, or request a preference…
