New Moon April 2014

New Moon in Taurus

April 29, 2014 1:14 AM CDT

New Moon Taurus

Sincere: from the Latin sincerus meaning clean, pure, sound.

Relationships with friends and lovers is the focus recently. Today’s New Moon focuses on the aspect within the archetype of Taurus that is all willy wonky, soft, mushy love stuff, the part of Taurus that says, don’t toy with me, don’t play with my heart if it’s my heart you want.

Taurus VALUES sincerity.

I think there’s something here to focus on today with our New Moon Solar Eclipse hanging powerfully over us all. So let’s talk sincerity.

The message of Taurus for this New Moon is to offer sincerity. By all means tell it like it is... but tell it with love. Please don’t sugar coat it - be sincere.

Taurus is a fixed sign so the archetype understands holding your ground. Taurus respects that. So do hold your ground when needed. Just don’t try to manipulate Taurus. Taurus is opposite Scorpio on the wheel and so they work together. Stir up the wrath of the bull, and he’ll call in the scorpion, maybe even patting you on the back with a jovial chuckle as the stinger inserts itself into your heart.

Holding our ground indicates our value. At the same time we learn that others have the right to hold their value. Sometimes we can agree to disagree, and it’s ok if you don’t like what I’m saying - speak up, but can we wrap it in ribbons please? And if I can’t handle what you have to say, that’s not your issue.

Let’s break it down.

What is sincerity but intimacy? In–to–me-you–see. And if I’m going to let you see into me, if I’m going to offer you sincerity – please handle me with care. Please respond sincerely and allow me to see into you so that I’m not standing in this space with no feedback, feeling exposed.

We’ll either find a space where warmth is generated or we’ll find the truth in each other. Sometimes the truth means moving on. Step into the courage of sincerity. And that is the message of today’s New Moon Solar Eclipse. The current planetary alignment is focused on relationships well until the fall of 2015. Sincerity is a great place to start. Treat yourself to Aaron Neville’s “Tell It Like it Is” with Bonnie Raitt. It’s all willy wonky soft mushy love stuff. I think the world needs more of it.

Please, if you like, I invite you to write down affirmations during the first 48 hours after the new moon. GUIDELINES for working with the New Moon energy are here.
