If there has ever been a time to take an action that could rock your foundation and change your life, the New Moon in Taurus in 2020 is it.
New moons are always about new cycles and new beginnings. During new moons, the moon and the sun are conjunct, or within 0 degrees of each other in the same sign. With the energy of the sun and moon blended together, this is the perfect time to manifest your desires, or leverage the sun’s potent energy to propel your intentions. That sets the stage for the next 28 days until the next new moon and moon cycle.
This particular new moon occurs at 10:26 p.m. EST on April 22 in the sign of Taurus. New moons take on the qualities of the sign they fall in. In Taurus, the new moon is associated with those parts of your life that bring you stability: money, relationships, your home. Taurus likes predictability and is concerned with building a strong foundation. Your foundation will be the focus of this coming new moon cycle.
A focus on change
While new moons are typically good times to introduce new changes you want to bring into your life, the New Moon in Taurus 2020 is particularly good for shaking up your routine.
This new moon conjuncts with Uranus, the planet of unexpected and radical change. That means the energies of the sun and moon are heightened by Uranus’ quest for freedom and disruption.
Since the new moon is in Taurus, the sign associated with one’s stability and foundation, that becomes the focal point for the change being encouraged during this new moon.
Interestingly, this lines up with some of the feelings I’ve been having about the pandemic. Andrew Cuomo, the governor of the state of New York, recently touted the importance of not just reopening the state and the entire United States after being shut down due to the pandemic but rather using the quarantine as an opportunity to reimagine what the world should look like.
Reimagining the future involves shaking up one’s foundation and building something new. If that was a tarot card, it may look like this:
Money, relationships and home
So what questions does the New Moon in Taurus 2020 ask us to consider? Remember, the focus is on Taurus and the aspects of life it rules i.e. your money, relationships and home.
How could you shift your foundation as it relates to money? Could you start looking for a new job? Is this the time to start a business? The pandemic has been causing massive financial changes. Some people are experiencing layoffs, furloughs and reduced hours so your financial landscape may already be reeling from changes. So how can you shake things up even more?
Are your most stable relationships really providing you with the emotional foundation you need? Is it time to break up in order to allow a more stable and encouraging union to form? Should you give your partner more insight into how you feel?
What changes can you make to your home? Is it time to redecorate or maybe even plan a move?
Intentions that address these and similar questions would be good areas to focus on during this moon cycle.
Change or be changed
So what happens if you don’t want to change? Say you like things the way you are and you really want to keep your foundation the same. That might be good and well, but don’t be surprised if change seeks you out instead.
Remember, Uranus plays a major role in this new moon, and Uranus is known to usher in change whether you want it or not. If you don’t take your cues from the Universe, the Universe has a way of making sure it is heard.
With that said, consider what changes you’d like to see manifest in your life that would rock your foundation in a good way. What would your ideal life look like? How would your finances and your relationships and your home environment look and feel? The New Moon in Taurus in 2020 is the perfect time to start a new manifestation program and move forward boldly toward that new life.
