The Desire For Happiness | New Moon in Taurus | Vedic Astrology Forecast for June 4th, 2016
The exact point of the New Moon in Sidereal Taurus will happen on June 4th around 11pm EDT. This begins a new Lunar Cycle with a near exact conjunction of Venus, Sun and Moon. It is an activation point which will bring together our Mind/hearts (Moon), our Soul’s Power and Self Identity (Sun) and our capacity for Happiness and enjoyment (Venus).
Taurus is an Earth sign ruled by Venus, showing its invitation to find pleasure and enjoyment within the material world. It enjoys beauty, comfort, and pleasure. This can include sensuality, good food, art and connections to nature. It is also a fixed sign, which adds to the Earth’s natural tendency towards stability. And the Bull is a symbol of Taurus, showing its strength and its slow plodding nature. It is capable of slow and steady action when it is motivated to achieve a desirable outcome. And when it isn’t motivated by a desired outcome, it is indifferent and would rather rest and relax.
Taurus energy is very grounding and stabilizing to the mind. This also reveals how our connection to relaxation, beauty and enjoyment help to ground and stabilize us in the world as well. When life starts to feel out of control, dramatic, or unstable, a good dose of rest, relaxation and the experience of enjoyment are often a great remedy. Since Venus is also here at this time, it will strengthen the deeper connection to happiness and pleasure while the Sun allows us to explore the movement of our Soul’s power in expressing itself through these experiences of enjoyment and rest.
If you have been pushing and forcing your way through life, this New Moon in Taurus is an invitation to give yourself permission to slow down and enjoy nature, time with your family and the pleasures of life. If you aren’t able to stop yourself from pushing, this energy may feel frustrating. But it is a fertile and creative energy that inspired new growth, abundance and clearer awareness of what you really desire in life.
This invitation is also being influenced by an oppositional aspect from Saturn in Scorpio. Saturn in this position may produce some fear or anxiousness and make it more challenging to relax. Saturn may also make us more aware of the nature of time, bringing about either appreciation for the slowness of Taurus and supporting commitment and endurance, or it may also create a feeling pressure for deadlines and frustration with the slowness.
Saturn here may also amplify the desire to be still and rest in a way the creates fear of moving forward. In this context it may amplify the side of Taurus which can get too comfortable and resists changing and growing. So, be sure that you don’t allow the healthy need for rest to become so stable that it becomes “stuckness”.
In the last couple of days building to the New Moon, I have observed this energy operating within my Healing Practice as well. It has brought a wave of new Healing Clients who are seeking to reconnect with the deeper happiness and joy of their own Authentic Self. They are wanting to stabilize their minds (Moon) into greater peace, learn to nurture their own happiness (Venus) and reconnect with their Soul’s Power (Sun). Saturn and Mars have both been retrograde in Scorpio for a while inviting Transformation and using our fears and insecurities as fuel for growth and courage.
The Saturn aspect on the Sun, Moon and Venus has created a pressure within them for wanting to get unstuck, and a stronger desire to commit to their own healing and growth.
What have been your experiences of this energy in your life? Are you ready to commit to your own healing and growth as well?
