The Taurus New Moon: A Chance To Reflect

Exclusively written for the Beach House by Lennon Mara of Moon + Quartz

The Taurus New Moon is your chance to reflect on the ways your values shine through in how you spend your time, money, and energy. Do you find yourself spreading yourself too thin and failing to make space in your life for the things that you value most? Do your spending habits reflect your true desires — or, for that matter, your real needs?

Taurus is what’s called a “fixed earth” sign; it’s known for its gravitation toward the physical, material, sensual world.

One way to better understand Taurus energy is to zoom out a bit and see the sign in context. Last month, during the New Moon in Aries, you set off toward a new adventure, beginning re-defining your core self. Now, after four weeks of developing and exploring this new, refreshed identity, you’re beginning the process of deciding what things — people, clothes, food, money, time, environment — you want to have with you on your journey.

The New Moon in Taurus asks: What makes your experiences in the world feel beautiful, luxurious, nourishing, filled to the brim with awe? This is the most powerful time of the year to seek out the answers to those questions, and set intentions for sweeter, more satisfying experiences.

Because Taurus is such a sensual sign, your New Moon ritual should mirror that love of the natural world. And the Dark Night event in Anchor & Den at Marriott’s Beach House in Cayman on April 28th will feature the perfect cosmic setting (think: lit candles and sage, deep tunes and intentional community) to create them.

However you choose to honor the New Moon, make sure to give thanks for the abundance that surrounds you in the now. Now more than ever, gratitude is the root of self-transformation.
