The steady energy from this Taurus New Moon during Taurus Season is an invitation to plant seeds in space of comfort and nourishment – What forms of body care do I need right now? Where can I release tension and invite more comfort?

The Taurus New Moon takes place on May 19, 2023, at ~11:53 am ET in the element of Earth.

New moons serve as new beginnings, new cycles. Many folks use new moons to clarify what they want to manifest and build on. New moons can also typically feel very grounding (you may even notice that you or your loved ones feel more sleepy or tired around the new moon each cycle!).

The new moon in Taurus serves as a stable, pleasurable, beautiful place to land. Taurus has a great work ethic and loves to enjoy rest and sensual joys. Sustainability is the name of the game. We don’t have to sacrifice comfort for achievement and vice versa! How does this resonate with you and your current state of being?

Perhaps you need more me-time or want to rest in the arms of your loved ones. Whatever your needs, desires, and comforts are, the Taurus archetype encourages us to lean into luxury knowing that we are deserving of good things! 

Regardless of where you are in your cycle or what season of your life you’re currently experiencing, this can be a satisfying and fertile time to plant seeds in space of comfort and nourishment.

Small Steps, Great Distances

Taurus, symbolized by The Bull, rules the Hierophant in tarot and understands the value of steady progress, patience, and sustainability. Taurus inspires us to create and indulge in what feels most nourishing. The Taurus archetype is the “builder” that brings a methodical work ethic and sensual passion to what is most important to them. We can bring those qualities of being a builder, a sustainer, and a lover of what is nourishing to all aspects of our lives, such as our work and relationships.

Anchoring ourselves with reminders to focus on progress and presence may help us embrace Taurean energy. Consider using the following simple quotes and sayings to ground you:

“Small steps, great distances”

“Slow and steady wins the race”

“Find joy in the journey”

There is no need to rush or judge. Let us plant our seeds this new moon and set our intentions with feelings of comfort, devotion, and satisfaction. 

Planting Seeds in Space of Comfort & Nourishment

Here are some prompts to pull cards for or journal about (or both!) to help you set the tone for this new cycle. In other words, these prompts can help you see yourself and your life in a new way.

No matter how your personal astrology interacts with these signs, it's a good time to reflect on these themes of inviting more comfort and nourishment, and making sustainable progress.  

  • What feels pleasurable and satisfying to me? How can I incorporate more of that during this cycle?
  • Where can I release tension and invite more comfort?
  • What forms of body care do I need right now?
  • When it comes to my intentions and goals, what would steady, sustainable progress look like?
  • What am I ready to build now?

As always, take your time answering and reflecting upon these questions – you can revisit them throughout the year and beyond this new moon.

This new moon’s deeply fertile and comforting energy may inspire you to explore new ways to take care of your womb and overall being. We support you in doing so and encourage you to join the Moonthly Meets group in our Cyclical Community.
