new moon in taurus
Updated: Aug 15, 2018
The moon holds so much energy and power. More than we know, our energy is aligned with the phases of the moon and can be an amazing tool to delve deeper and make meaningful intentions and decisions based on the lunar cycle. Each new moon has a different energy depending on what sign it lands in, but can still be used as a check in for intention setting and manifesting your deepest desires. Below I share some information on how I use new moons to journal and write down my intentions and give some guidance on this new moon which lands in Taurus.
New moons symbolize new beginnings. It is the perfect time to reflect and gain clarity on what you want to bring more of into your life. Each new moon offers a clean slate and an opportunity to begin again. Personally, I use the new moons to sit down and write out my goals and intentions for the upcoming lunar cycle. Once the full moon comes, I then reflect on my goals and intentions that I set during the new moon phase. Using this system as a tool to anchor my intention setting has supported me in becoming very clear on what I want and taking time to visualize, manifest, and gain more clarity on what is serving me in my life.
This particular new moon lands in Taurus and brings a lot of change. It offers an opportunity to embrace a new versions of yourself that is open and able to attract anything you need.
“It's a highly creative Moon setting the stage for change within that can lead to our highest vision of abundance for ourselves.” -Spirit Daughter
With so much change happening around you, it can be easy to fall into a state of fear. For this new moon, allow yourself to look past fear and embrace the uncertainty around you, knowing that you can always turn inside for inner peace. Taurus is closely associated with abundance and it is important to remember that you are already abundant and any illusions of lack or scarcity is holding you back. When you embrace that there are plenty of resources for everyone, you will push past your comfort zone and attract everything you need.
Questions to consider for journaling:
What do I want more of in my life?
What fearful thoughts such as lack or scarcity, are getting in my way?
What creative energy can I tap into?
Mantras to guide you during meditation:
I am abundant
I am complete
There is more than enough to go around

Citrine: known as the stone of abundance, citrine will support you in manifesting and achieving your goals. It is powerful in attracting wealth and prosperity and will only amplify with the energy of Taurus.
New Moon Meditation:
Sit comfortably with your rose quartz and citrine, if you have them. Close your eyes.
Ask yourself: Who would you be and what would your world look like without the fear of lack/scarcity?
Begin to image what your life would look like if you could have anything and everything that you desire. Take your time and visualize all of the small details around you.
Breathe in and out and notice what fear/doubt/thoughts of lack that come up and with each one let your exhale carry them away.
Journal what comes up for you. Notice the patterns of your mind. Write down exactly what you want and what that ideal world and the version of yourself looked like.
For the next 15 days place your journal and crystals somewhere you will see them. Continue to reflect on your big goals and intentions. Remind yourself to trust the universe and know that you have all the creative energy needed for your next breakthrough.
