Sharing with you the energy of our April New Moon in Taurus – a SUPER MOON !
GENERAL MEANING: New Moons
The NEW MOON represents the beginning of our 29 day lunar month. During a New Moon, the moon is roughly sitting between the Earth & the Sun, hence the Sun is shining on the ‘dark side of the moon’, the side of the moon we never see. As a result, we cannot see the moon as the side that faces the Earth is not illuminated.
The Moon & the Sun emanate frequencies and these energy waves influence the tides, and all life forms on Earth, including human behaviour / consciousness. In addition, during a NEW MOON, both the Moon & Sun are in the same Zodiac sign… giving an exponential boost or concentration of the energy.
The SUN represents our ‘outer-world’, our identify, our personality, our ego. It represents how we ‘shine our light’ out into the world, the present moment, our yang or masculine archetype expression. The Sun offers us strength, courage and illuminated insight of the Soul.
The MOON represents our ‘inner world’, our hidden emotions, desires, our shadow-self, fears/worries and our dreams. It represents our feelings, our unconscious beliefs, the past and our yin or feminine goddess archetype. The Moon offers us the ability to feel, learn from the past and creatively unlock and express our essence.
During a NEW MOON, the side of the moon that remains invisible to us here on Earth is being illuminated by the Sun. Thus our own ‘invisible’ side, our inner feelings, emotions and desires are also being illuminated during a new moon. During this illumination, we are given a window of opportunity to start a fresh, let go of the energy of the previous cycle and set our intentions, dreams & inner-most desires into conscious action.
The NEW MOON is a great time to set your intentions, write down goals or begin new projects for the forthcoming cycle. Consider sitting in ceremony or personal meditation and affirming to the Universe your intentions & inner-most heartfelt desires for the cycle.

Our April NEW MOON falls in the Zodiac sign of TAURUS. Taurus is an Earth sign and is ruled by Venus… thus during our Taurus New Moon we are called to take some time out, be seduced by nature, enjoy the simple yet sensual pleasures of the Earth and slow down our lives to truly ‘smell the roses’.
We are given the opportunity to reflect and be practical about lives. What makes your heart sing and what pleasure can you gift yourself to receive in order to make your souls physical existence a more comfortable one ?
As we move into this New Moon, make a gratitude list of all the things in your life that make you ‘wealthy’ on the inside and out… even if it doesn’t already exist in the your life, add it to the list and be grateful for it.
Now make a list of how you can share that ‘wealth’ with others. Just by making the committment to share your wealth, you are creating more wealth and bringing abundance of wealth for all to share ….joy, hope & LOVE.
There is an interesting twist to our April New Moon energy too… please keep reading below about the Fixed Star Conjunctions & SuperMoon energy.
New Moon: Fixed Stars
Hamal is positioned on the forehead of the Ram (Aries Constellation) and energetically holds the natures of Saturn & Mars.
Schedir is positioned on the breast (left) of the Ethiopian Queen (Cassiopeia Constellation) and energetically holds the nature of Saturn (& to a limited extent Venus).
Together, this Fixed Star/New Moon conjunction is taking us deep in our personal/collective shadow and unveiling aspects that are ready for transmutation.
Get ready for the unveiling of malefic dictators that seek to control, oppress and ultimately divide & conquer. This maybe people in your life, people on the world stage (eg politicians, business leaders) or could even be a shadow side of your inner-self.
Ultimately, what becomes illuminated this New Moon is transmuted through conscious awareness & recognition of weak the energy of the ego really is.
You may feel a little uncomfortable this New Moon and we may also see some very interesting developments in polictics/business… but rest assured any unveiling we ultimately usher in greater levels of compassion & grace.
New Moon: Super Moon
Our April 2017 New Moon is also a Super Moon !
Energy runs high during a SUPERMOON… you may feel more emotional, electric, experience sleep disturbances or have expressive / lucid dreams.
You may also find your intuition is heightened, synchronicity more pronounced and you become more aware or sensitive to the energy of the environment / people / plants / animals… actually everything !
