Tarot for the Taurus Lunation, The New Phase

It’s been a while since I’ve written about the tarot and astrology. It struck me today (on the New Moon in Taurus) that it might be interesting to work through this lunation one phase at a time using cards associated with the beginning of each phase. A New Moon likes to start something new and Taurus likes things she can put her hands on, like these cards, so here goes.

The New Moon in Taurus begins her journey with a pleasant sextile to Neptune in Pisces. Taurus and Pisces are an interesting combination. Taurus is concerned with matters of this world while Pisces may be more comfortable in another. The blending of these two energies can produce true concern and responsibility for the welfare of the Earth and an ability to commune with the divine through nature.

New Moon in Taurus 2017: Tools for the Lunation

As I write this, it’s the morning after a very steady night-long rain. The sky is still gray, cloud-covered. The yards in my woodsy neighborhood are dense with a magnificent variety of green foliage, the branches of the trees bending closer and closer to the ground under the weight of the rainwater. This rainy day mix of earth and water is a wonderful metaphor for the Moon in Taurus, the most earthbound of the signs.
