The Natural Self
It's a lunation for deeply enriching and terra forming (shaping) your life, with the Sun and Moon in earthy Taurus. Time to come to your senses, right here in the physical world.
This lunar re-set is a critical time to substantiate your intent, feel the Bull's weight and Venusian grace behind you.
2012 Make it Real!
What a chart! The Sun-Moon both at 1 degree Taurus are in close trine to activator Mars (Virgo). The luminaries and Mars make wide trines to soul transformer Pluto, creating an earth matrix ready for your most inspired mythic journey to be poured into.
And Mercury in Aries is keeping your attention on that path of inspiration. It's bringing messages that awaken, in its close journey with Uranus, with ever widening possibilities. Mercury-Uranus tune you in to the dynamic moment, and with this duo's square to Pluto, the paths that lead from dark to light, dis-ease to vitality and more.
Disengage from the Crazy
For many of us, it's the challenge is slowing down enough to just Be in our natural state. All kinds of mesmerizers take us out of our bodies and immediate surroundings -- tv, facebook, cell phones. We're here, but our minds/psychic energy is there.
Here's a New Moon to make a fresh start, and bring more of your creaturely self -- your body and the five senses -- to the moment. See if you can find the deep relief, the big Ahhhhh from disengaging.
Taurus is the settling in and manifesting part, after the Aries sparks of creation. What habits of living can you commit to, that will engage you deeply in your life purpose? Taurus is a receptive feminine sign that draws in what it needs, building on what's already there. What natural talents are there to invest in?
More themes to help shape your commitment:
Do things that increase your sense of self-worth.

Vow to be dedicated to your life's work.
Develop your ideas fully before sharing them.

Taurus craves security, with the assurance that life renews itself every Spring. That the big wooden table will be covered with nourishing food, and surrounded by people that feel like family. When you think of words like sustenance, wealth, comfort, ease, what images come to mind?
Now take note of what's been raring to go, within you, or what's already got astonishing momentum. This is a time of emergency and choice. What resources and talents are dormant within, ready to be excavated and put into service for yourself and the future of humanity?
The spirit of Aries and emergence is strong, and startling, revitalizing vision can come to you now. This is your emergency, for the emergence of a more powerful, strong-willed, daring, animated individual. When this energy is taken into the Taurus New Moon cave, you gain practical magic...strategies for making it all real.
