TAURUS – I Have / I Manifest
Taurus is the sign of the zodiac that finds it so easy to get whatever they want. They are the manifestors of the zodiac and we can learn from their example.
Hardworking, loving, funny, with an earthy sense of humour, they make great parents and wonderful friends. They are stable, solid and make everyone feel secure. They are sensual, intelligent and usually good at whatever they turn their hand to. They are renowned gardeners, cooks, crafters, artists, musicians, architects etc.
Lovely, down to earth Taureans enjoy indulging their senses, they love good food (and wine!), they love good quality and expect it (they love Egyptian cotton sheets, silk, leather, anything that is well made and good quality). They expect good service.
The only thing they need to watch out for is that they get bored very quickly and want to cut and run and try something new/go somewhere new. However, this can cause them a lot of problems. They need to be patient with themselves and not cut and run, but to wait and see how things develop further down the line. That’s Taurean bullishness at its worst, stubborn as heck but eventually they get it.
Check which house Taurus is in on your Natal chart, as this is the house most impacted by this Full Moon and which is most personal to you.
Anger issues really came to the surface with the recent Full Moon, as old deep stuff came to the surface for healing.
Remember that whilst we are clearing for ourselves personally, we are also doing it for the collective. These are powerful times, and we came here to help clear miasms in families and community that go back hundreds of years. That’s why you get so tired at times. It’s not just about you, we are all connected, through all the timelines – past, present and future. Thank you for being here at this time, and for doing this. You are a true Rainbow Warrior, and you are clearing the pathway for other generations to follow.
The past few weeks have been very testing for some of us. One of my oldest friends has been dealing with something almost constantly for weeks, and through it all she has remained positive and refused to let it get to her. She is my inspiration. The tests recently have been incredibly painful for some of us, especially if they have dragged you back down to low third dimensional energies. It is very difficult, when you have stretched into and started functioning more in the 5th dimension, yet those around you haven’t, it can be quite a shock to be yanked back into the lower vibrations. Some events have been devastating for others, but have led to great clarity about what they need to do. Some of you may have been (or still are) feeling super sensitive at the moment. Wrap your Cloak of Protection around you and give yourself plenty of TLC, remove yourself from anyone/anything negative until this phase eases.
The Year of the Sheep is supposed to be an easier year, however there is an annual affliction in the Central Palace of the home in this Feng Shui year. To appease this and to help restore harmony in relationships in the home, place a red laughing Buddha in the centre of the home (ensure he is elevated and not put on the floor), a picture will do.
"The time for the luxury of personal neuroses is over. There's too much to do on behalf of all of life."
-- Deena Metzger
This quote is spot on for where we should all be focusing right now. The mind will distract us from this purpose by filling our heads with neuroses of all kinds. We cannot allow it to. We have stepped into our greater selves and our greater reality. We came here to help humanity through our gifts, and we must fulfill that purpose. So when you start sweating and swearing about the small stuff, just remember that you have a much bigger purpose you should be directing your energies towards. So get over it and get on with it!
I’m not a political person, never have been, however there is something that I need to say, because I have a concern that has been growing and nagging away at me over the past few decades.
The recent General Election here in the UK confirmed to me that we must become more self-sufficient if we are to survive long term. Over 20yrs ago I said that I had a feeling they were trying to phase out the NHS as part of all the privatization that has been going on, and this election has started the beginning of the end of the NHS. Our country and its finances have been grossly mismanaged by government after government (it doesn’t matter what they are called they are all the bloody same). We have alleged Leaders, yet they couldn’t lead a dog to its dinner. They all have weak chins, no spines and no balls. And no, I do not think that a woman could do a better job at all, once you get to that level of government, you have been sucked into the ‘club’ and the way the ‘club’ does things and you have to conform.
We must learn how to support ourselves by growing our own food, by learning how to keep ourselves healthy through the use of plant medicine (and there are plenty of teachers and courses out there to learn how to do this safely). Most importantly we must realise that we cannot rely on the government/authorities for everything. The blunt truth is that they are not on our side, so we must stand up for ourselves and look after ourselves. Rant over.
As mentioned in my previous post, we are now in Mercury Retrograde. Get the car serviced. Back up your computer. Sort out that dripping tap, broken window etc. Double check all travel arrangements. Read the small print - don’t overlook it - on everything from a contract you are thinking of signing to warranties on new purchases (I would avoid major purchases during this transit), and travel tickets, check everything twice!
Merc retrograde slows everything down, it’s not the time to be pushing ahead. It’s not the time to be making major decisions either.
Use this time to catch up with outstanding projects, retweaking/reworking projects, rethinking, rectify, renew, re-read (think before you hit that send button as you might need to re-word it!) Reflect, re-evaluate, and rest in readiness to receive.
MARS and URANUS combine to create a bit of an edge, so think before you speak, and trust your instincts regarding what others say and do. Try not to snap at your loved ones, as they will also be feeling a bit on edge and may not understand why. This New Moon will highlight what changes need to be made in partnerships and relationships of all kinds.
“A Jupiter-Pluto quincunx opens wealth expansion possibilities during the second half of May. This half-month also supports resource accumulation with a Taurus New Moon. And abundant good fortune can flow from a Venus-Neptune trine!”
– Benjamin Bernstein (www.AstroShaman.com)
Now doesn’t that sound good?
This New Moon helps us to direct our energies towards abundance and accumulation through our own efforts. The work you have put in starts to pay off now. Self-esteem improves as self-confidence grows. Don’t be lazy. Be disciplined, take it step by step, the more relaxed and in the flow you are, the more will flow to you.
Taurus reminds you that you are blessed with many talents and gifts. Are you fully using yours? Do you honour and respect yours? Do you talk lovingly about your abilities and talents? Do you value yourself and your abilities? Do others value you and your abilities?
If obstacles or curve balls crop up, this New Moon is highlighting what has been blocking you from the abundant success you so deserve. Don’t resist what comes up, be mature about it. Recognize it, heal it and deal with it, so that your pathway is clear for all this lovely, new abundant energy to come in.
How do you feel about abundance?
Do you recognize the abundance in your life?
Do you put the effort in but don’t seem to get the rewards?
Then perhaps you need some abundance support.

Venus, the Goddess of Love, Beauty and Abundance rules Taurus.
“If you give your body no energy – energy as in good food- it has no energy to create more energy i.e. money.
It all begins with touch. From hereon out, everything – and I do mean everything – you touch, you must touch as though you were caressing your lover.
What is about to be born must first let go of what has been.
Something miraculous is always trying to happen.”
-- Venus/Robin Rice extracts from her book ‘Venus for A Day’
Venus encourages us to live beauty-fully. Venus knows that you are meant to live fully, passionately, lovingly, abundantly, and fully. Venus has total belief that She can have whatever She wants, and She is totally confident about it.
Do you have total belief and confidence that you can have whatever you want?
As I have mentioned in previous posts, your word is your wand. You create your future through the words you write and the words you speak. Think before you open your mouth. Think before you write a post on social media. Is it beauty-full? Is it positive? Will it raise the vibration or lower it? Venus does not tolerate lower vibrations.
Venus never resists, She goes with the flow of what She desires. How resistant are you? Resistance is like massive concrete road block that literally stop you in your tracks.
Are you grounded, centred and balanced? You can’t build an abundant future if your feet are not firmly planted and grounded. You cannot go up unless you have good roots to anchor you. You have to be able to ground the energies in order for them to flourish.
(Our ‘Abundance Flow Kit’ can help you with all of this)
Thankfully, this New Moon helps us all to calm down a bit, to soothe our senses and look after our bodies and bank accounts.
New Moon Ritual
Find a quiet time on New Moon Day or Night.
Set up an altar in a place where you cannot be disturbed.
Light a candle and welcome in the energies of the New Moon.
This time, instead of writing a New Moon Wish List, write a list of what you are going to do differently. For yourself, your life, in your relationships, in your work and for your dreams/goals.
What new beginnings are you going to create?
What can you do for yourself that will lead to a continually abundant life?
What do you commit to?
What do you desire?
After writing your List, read it aloud to Grandmother Moon.
End your ritual with the following Navajo chant. Stand up, and as you say each line, send love and energy flowing from you to that direction.
Beauty before me
Beauty behind me
Beauty to the left of me
Beauty to the right of me
Beauty above me
Beauty below me
Beauty all around me
May I walk in Beauty
- Navajo/Diné quote
Sending y’all abundant Blessings,
