New Moon in Taurus – 23 April 2020, 05:26 – Romanian time

The New Moon of Thursday, April 23rd marks a new beginning, new projects, thoughts and plans are shaping up for each of us,all of them strongly imprinted by the energy of the zodiac sign Taurus, a sign of Earth, feminine, artistic, with great power of achievement.

Even if the New Moon signifies the “samanta” that we are currently planting, through the thoughts and projects we do, the things that we have not completed in the previous cycle or emotional problems can influence for better or for worse, the new cycle. In this case, the new cycle could have the express role of solving unfinished things.

It’s time to be present, to project positively, to trust and to start those actions that we really find ourselves in.

The detoxification capacity of the body is maximum on the day of the New Moon. Anyone who makes a rule of having a fasting day every time the moon is new will benefit from many advantages in preventing ailments. Also this day is perfect to start a new activity such as the unlearning of bad habits. Often bad habits are the outward expression of inner energies that need only a new goal to become useful and valuable to us and to other people.

The night before the New Moon is a night of divine transcendence

and if we engage in spiritual activities we can achieve exceptional results that equate to the results obtained after a year of assiduous spiritual practice.

In order for this new beginning to “establish” better in our being and to make the most of this astrological aspect it is advisable to perform a short meditation of about 20 minutes, in its maximum period, 10 minutes before and 10 minutes after it takes place, i.e. between 05:16 and 05:36.

How we meditate:

Sitting on a chair with your back straight and your hands resting on your thighs with your palms down, we aim to completely relax our body, especially the muscles of our face.
It is necessary to feel the physical body abandoned and immobile. After we’ve done the “parking” of the body, we turn our attention inside the body, into the middle of the chest, and imagine that we’re adimensional at that level.
Throughout meditation, we aim to feel the complex influence of this astral moment, of the New Moon, when the luminaries, the Sun and the Moon participate in the “cosmic wedding”, by dividing the same zodicacal degree. Now the male and the female merge into a perfect unit.

Due to the conjunction between the Sun and the Moon there is a special complementarity of yin-yang energies in nature.

If we now seek to find a perfect agreement between our will and God’s will, our consciousness will go through exceptional spiritual transformations that will lead to the acquisition of the state of harmony and inner peace.

Through the state of consciousness cultivated by various Abheda Yoga techniques, certain unfavorable astrological transits can be transcensed. Apart from these methods to be practiced systematically, it can be said that the destiny of men is written in the stars and it is relatively difficult for the ordinary man to manifest free will, independent of the influences of celestial bodies.

Shiva Ratri

The night that precedes this phenomenon of the New Moon, in our case the night from 22 to 23 April 2020,is celebrated in the Eastern spiritual tradition under the name Shiva Ratri.

The night before the New Moon is a night of divinetranscendence, and if we engage in spiritual activities we can achieve exceptional results that equate to the results obtained from a year of assiduous spiritual practice.

During this astral moment, it is good to have an easy diet or even to practice Anaharin – black fasting only with water, to reduce the rhythm of daily activities, and to aim to orient ourselves inwards, being aware that this night is particularly effective for the practice of meditation, it gives us the opportunity to achieve thus important spiritual progress.

Specific astrological aspects

Thursday, April 23 – 5:26 – marks the moment of the New Moon in Taurus by the perfect conjunction between the Moon and the Sun in Taurus at the 3:24 degree dinamizing the first house of this astral moment, the House of Life, the house of vitality and health. This cardinal and angular house represents the central point of our personality and our way of expression, it indicates the personal level of vitality and gives strength or strength.

We are now imbued with an energy of the earth, a dense energy, palpable and strongly focused on material values, on our resources, thematerial plan is very important now and we are willing to work with toil to conquer it. The bull is in a constant search for a palpable reality, and the safety and satisfaction of work are two elements very important to him, he enjoys life, appreciates comfort and all that is beautiful and valuable in life.

The challenges of this moment

are about overcoming the aspects that represent the very lesson of this zodiac sign of the Taurus in question sense of highly developed possession,whether the object of possession is a material object or a partner, strong attachment to the material plane, its fixation and rigidity, lack of adaptation or flexibility in the face of change, greed, stubbornness.

We face a very much focused energy on the material plane

concrete, palpable which due to the verb characteristic of it “A POSEDICA“, can mislead us by the feeling of identification with it, identification with what we have or possess at the material level, with our finances or material resources, so we can fall into the temptation of prioritizing ephemeral values at the expense of eternal ones.

The current social context can become a real lesson

for those who identify with what they hold as material values, for those who are afraid to lose what they have acquired so far by sacrificing themselves, a lesson that aims to save their soul from the trap of matter by indicating their sole possession, namely spiritual possession, for only the values of the spirit are the only values that truly belong to us.

Non attachment, freedom and detachment from anything that unites us, whether we are talking about a material thing, of a particular value, of a relationship or a certain partnership, spiritual openness to the eternal values of the human being at the expense of the ephemeral ones become the main themes of this new Moon in Taurus that teaches us a new way of being and perceiving reality.

“The individual should give his possessions an individual meaning and not just a collective one. He should make his property meaningful according to his character and individual destiny. He should dedicate what his “has” what “is” him, because only what he is can confer his meaning to have. Nothing is more useless and spiritually empty than having without being and this is true for any type of possessions.” ( Astrological houses – Dane Rudhyar)

The new moon in Taurus is hosted by the first house of this astral moment, the home of our own personality and the way of expression

this house speaks of our own will, of who we are and of how we see ourselves. The presence of the new Moon here helps us to redefine ourselves by changing our value system, by changing our mentality and limiting beliefs about who we are both individually and socially.

The surprise element and the trigger of the great changes is Uranus which is at the 6:24 degree in Taurus conjunct with the New Moon. It will dictate the way of our change no matter what it entails for each individual, either a contractual or sentimental rupture, or a rearrangement of some material aspects, or a redefinition of some mentalities or concepts, or the abandonment of certain behaviors or attachments. No matter what he brings and whether we want these changes or not, he will impregnate everything with an air of new, fresh, nonconformism and authenticity, he will only help us align with who we really are even if we do not like the price we are asked.

The other surprise element comes through the prism of the tense aspect that Saturn in Aquarius makes with the New Moon, which can lead many obstacles and delays in our plans, can create a feeling of helplessness or frustration due to the fact that we are not yet ready to let go of the past and the things with which we are accustomed, we cannot become a new being as long as we have not given up the old one. Saturn, as a wise old man, urges us to instrospection and contemplation, directs us to truly “meditate” on our own being to help us see who we are after removing who we are not.

What sustains the action of the New Moon in Taurus is the North Node of Cancer, it is our soul that urges us to look only through his eyes to validate our own value. The values of Cancer are related to sensitivity, motherhood, care and love towards you and others, protection and safety, home and family, self-love, and at this moment exactly these values are the ones that create the environment most suitable for the growth of our value (Taur) to discover the authenticity within us.

The Message of This New Month in Taurus

it is a message of finding lost identity, of accessing eternal values, truly significant for the evolution of our soul, of becoming gentler, simpler, closer and more open to those or what matters to each of us, without forgetting, however, that we do not own anyone or anything in this world, belongs to us only what we carry in our souls and this will be our only gift to God.

“You were born from a radius
of God’s
and you are blessed by lucky stars.
Why do you suffer from things
that doesn’t exist?
Come, return to the root of the root
to your self.”

(“Love said – Grace” – Rumi)
