Harnessing the Energy of the Taurus New Moon for Manifestation and Growth

Taurus Moon goddess

Taurus is ruled by the planet Venus, the goddess of love, and is a feminine earth sign; its symbol is the bull, the sign of Wall Street. Material comforts and possessions are essential to a Taurean, associated with earthly pleasures, luxury, comfort, abundance, and a fertile and creative life. Taureans are dependable and make great team players, but they are a fixed earth sign; they can be conservative, stubborn, and resist change.

Their preference is a fixed, relaxed, predictable lifestyle, and they can be prone to laziness and be narrow-minded sometimes. Venus's immaturity can be jealous and possessive, and she feels threatened when something or someone she loves is supplanted or replaced by something new or foreign to her. When Taureans feel threatened, they can become ferocious; therefore, it is not a good idea to provoke them. Their pace is slow and steady, but they can become aggressive once provoked. Their natural placement in the zodiac is the second house of personal material resources; therefore, what you value may undergo shifts and a fresh new start under this new moon. Gratitude and new values are most likely to increase during this time.

Qualities Positive & Negative

You need emotional security in your possession and/or your physical environment; the need is stability and self-endurance. Having and/or feeling secure with material and physical brings you a sense of stability and emotional security. Your behavior and personality are associated with the need to hold on and retain, which derives from your need for material security. This will allow you the desire to work hard for what you want and may gain, which is emotionally essential satisfaction for a “job well done.” The Moons' functions will enable you opportunities that assist and enable you to acquire material comfort and possessions.

The fixed earth of Taurus holds the Moon's waters firmly, channeling them, but Taurus's lack of flexibility can obstruct the flow of things associated with the Moon. However, Taurus's feminine, organic energy blends well with the Moon's nurturing attributes, loosening Taurus' rigidity toward the functions symbolized by the Moon.


Steady, warm, giving, and deeply sensitive to the needs of others, but can be emotionally attached, have emotional outbursts, use emotions to overcome others, and be hot-headed.

Habits and behaviors

They are slow and steady, methodical, and organically process things. They are comfortable with the tangible but can get stuck in a rut, unwilling to try new things, and bullied.

Family/ mother

Inclined to be devoted to family life and loving children/ parents, the family brings strong emotional security and is nurtured and nurturing. Attached to family, the mother sees family as possessions, a domineering mother or father who crushes on self-reliance, identity, and matriarchal and Patriarchal parent styles.


Respect and desire to conserve past and cultural heritage, especially organic structures; you view past and culture as nurturing and valuable. You are bound by tradition, close-minded to change, and rotted to how things were done in the past.


Moon in Taurus symbolizes a state of oneness with the organic nature of the world, and there’s a solid pull to seek oneness with nature, especially on an emotional level; in nature, you can find emotional stability and tranquility for which you long. For this bond, you can nurture all things that endure and grow, which includes your inner nature. By calmly and steadily giving way to your intuitive subconscious, you strengthen your inner self, which becomes enduring. As you strengthen, the secrets of nature are revealed to you, and you can share a little joke with the world.

Make a financial plan and look at your financial situation; cash, property, and possessions are the focus at this time of the year. It’s an excellent time to think about where you’d like to be by the end of the year and ask questions like can I increase the amount of money I set aside as savings each week?

Loving ourselves is a big issue for most of us, and at this time, it’s good to look at how you view your self-worth and think about things like what you value in yourself and what you value at large. If you don’t value yourself, then it’s unlikely that others will value you as well. Take some time and list what you value most. Are you living a life that helps you focus on these things? If so, how can you make improvements?
