    Analysis
    This New Moon in Taurus isn’t your stereotypical lunation in the fixed bullish sign. Uranus is linking up with this Moon, along with aspects to the South node shaking up the ground beneath us. With aspects from these two, we learn to accept that change is a vital part of our lives. It’s not always meant to create chaos, but flush out the old making way for the new. Similar to tilling a garden, this is an excellent time to break up old patterns, removing stagnant energy and outdated values. 

    Taurus is a luxurious Venus ruled Earth sign so you may find yourself planting seeds of financial intentions. From banking to savings, or working with a budget this New Moon is excellent for focusing on creating a sturdy foundation. If you have plans of wanting to make an investment in a big budget purchase or a luxury item this is the time to map out your plan to pay for it. The grounded vibes of this Moon will give you practical and sound financial advice. The only hook is being in alignment with your own core values, and self respect so you don’t go seeking it in material objects. 

    There are some very harmonious aspects between Neptune and a slew of planets in earth signs, lending some inspirational feels. This blends well with Taurus, who is incredibly fond of the Arts. You may fare well with poetry, music, or new instruments today. You may also be looking to make updates to a beauty routine, pick up some new cosmetics or change up your personal scent. Taurus is notorious for their indulgences, so cooking up a tasty meal may be another way you decide to celebrate. If you’re feeling up to it, and not in a carb hangover, get out and about in Nature. Connecting with the Element of Earth can bring you back to the beauty of nature, and the true essence of the bare necessities. Planting seeds, harvesting herbs, getting your feet and hands in the dirt are all encouraged. 

    With aspects from Saturn and the South node, we are examining building something that will last in the long run. Long term planning, as well as working together to build something grander is a common theme. Saturn and Pluto are working hard to break down any outdated habits that require you to work harder, not smarter. This New Moon is the most important time to integrate innovative ways of getting some sort of job done. This can be with the help of community effort, or technology. The energy will be extremely grounded. If you’re looking to plant the beginning seeds of some new business goals or even personal/ professional boundaries, now is the time!

    2. Add honey and mix to form a thick paste.
    3. Add enough warm water to form a thin paste. Add an essential oil of your choice. 
    4. Immediately apply to face and neck in a circular motion, avoiding the eyes.

    Emotions may runneth over this Full Moon. With the intense amount of inner planets in Virgo opposing Neptune and the Moon in Pisces, things are bound to feel a bit overwhelming, or critical.

There may be a conscious or unconscious struggle going on within us. Expect this to become highlighted or exposed at the time of this Full Moon.

Essentially it means that her roles and her position made her JUST as important as any male deity regarded in ANY pantheon! Obviously we know this is also just the Patriarchal system that’s been instilled, as there are PLENTY of Goddesses who deserve the title of Supreme!!!! .......
