Moon in Taurus - The Moon in Taurus grounds us; it slows us down and wakes our sensual nature and stubbornness, helps us dig deeper roots. This moon transit asks us to discover what nurtures us. We can almost feel the mud oozing between our toes, awakening our senses and sensuality, and growing our stubbornness. This transit is a time to cultivate our material resources, our homes and our body. The forceful becomes solid, calm and patient during Taurus. There is a desire to protect material goods and a strong need for financial security. It is a poor time for change or getting a loan as people are very cautious and reserved about money, especially during the first part of this transit. The middle of Taurus
is more calm. It is a good time to continue or to finish projects, or to stay at home with family. Taurus gives attention to order and detail. Emotionally, there can stubbornness, but great sensitivity to others. Moon in Taurus is the best time to work magick for love, real estate, material acquisition's, and money. Healing rituals for ailments of the throat, neck, and ears are also done during this period of time. For someone born under a Taurus moon sign they have roots that go deeply and change slowly. They collect, touch, support, see the sacred in the world of matter. Being steady, they can loan their strength to others, but may need to learn the beauty in change.
Crescent Moon - The Crescent Moon (or waxing crescent moon) rises midmorning and sets after sunset. She is the first visible sliver of Moon seen in the western sky in the late afternoon or early evening. The Crescent Moon is the SPROUT of the moon plant. The seed has broken through the earth and reaches up as she ventures from the dark moist earth she has known. Keywords for the Crescent phase are: expansion, growth, struggle, opportunity. It is the time in a lunar cycle that you gather the wisdom learned in the New phase and communicate your intention to move forward. Light a candle.
Write or read an affirmation. LISTEN & ABSORB. Commit to your goal(s). For those born during
a Crescent moon phase - you must break from the past to create your own destiny.
