Cultivate a Wealth of Virtue ♥ Taurus New Moon ♥

New Moons are times of new beginnings. In abundant earthy Taurus, sign of food, flowers and finance, seeds of the new are planted to grow in the garden, as well as in the sensuous wilds of true Taurean treasure: the kind and loving heart-mind. The Taurean Bull highlights what we value, be that a thing, person, place or song.

Buddha was a Taurus. The following lines sum up his teachings:

“Commit not a single unwholesome action,
Cultivate a wealth of virtue,
To tame this mind of ours.”

We have the opportunity to tame the mind - and more, with the Taurus New Moon @8:18BST, where the Moon is exalted, as it constellates a very practical ‘Earth Trine’, a triangle formation with active Mars in healing Virgo, and transformational Pluto in powerful Capricorn. This useful ‘Earth Trine’ remains in stabilising effect for twelve more days. We need this celestial steadiness because Mars remains at early degrees Virgo in opposition to the ‘wounded-water’ configuration that is Neptune and Chiron (still in effect two years since the Deepwater Horizon accident in the Gulf of Mexico – not to mention Fukishima). And although Mars is the high-flying point of the ‘Earth Trine’ which becomes the tail of a rare ‘Earth-Water Kite’ formation – which is a wonderful opportunity to fix damaged power structures, mend broken hearts, and have deep psychological/emotional breakthrough – it might be so wonderful that we take for granted any boon, bountiful shooting stars, or stroke of genius we have or encounter, that we easily ignore the cosmic help now on offer. So be aware or you might blink and miss it and get stuck with Mars in his other tight aspect: still at ‘the bends’, being in direct ‘T’ square to destiny’s nodal axis. In fact, warrior Mars is dealing with this fast blast of karma, which requires constant readjustment throughout most of the lunation, until after Wesek, at the last quarter Moon around May 13th. To be honest, Mars in this position is not my favourite; situations can get heated for no reason other than ignorance.

Venus is often the only planet that can seduce a listless Mars. As Love Goddess Venus is the Taurean ruler, now in smooth-talking Gemini, (where she will soon perform an amazing celestial dance (more on this to come)) harmonious relations entail entering into dialogue to understand others' point of view To do so means one is truly on the dharma path, well on the way to the equipoise that cultivates a wealth of virtue, awakening the heart chakra and taming the anxious mind though love-wisdom and compassion _(♥)_
