New Moon in Taurus and Solar Eclipse Essentials

The New Moon in Taurus is upon us, and this luxurious lunar energy is accompanied by a partial solar eclipse to kick off eclipse season. The skies will be ablaze with potent frequencies that we can tap into simply by going inward and connecting with these dynamic forces. But there are elements we can also incorporate in our moon rituals that help to maximize the energy for our healing and the conjuring of our dreams. 


The Taurus New Moon will be at its peak on Saturday, April 30 at 4:28 pm E.T. At that time a portal opens, allowing us to focus our wishes on things like money, self-worth, sensual pleasure, and patience. The second sign of the zodiac is ruled by Venus, the planet of love, romance, money, beauty, and art, so think about what you want to expand in those areas of your life. 

Taurus loves luxury and being adorned in beautiful things. At the same time, this earth sign remains grounded, taking a moment to think things through before pouncing on fresh ideas. So, take a breath or a few breaths before making your move. 


Speak your wishes out loud and full in color. After all, Taurus rules the throat and neck. Consider showing extra love to your throat chakra during this new moon. You can give yourself Reiki or chant HAM seven times inhaling deeply and chanting on the exhale. Another option is lying down and placing a crystal on your throat chakra as you meditate and connect with the crystal’s energy. 

Crystals for meditating under the Taurus New Moon: 

Lapis Lazuli (good for throat & third eye chakra balance), Selenite (good for third eye and crown chakra balance), or Emerald and Jade (both good for balancing the heart chakra, which is associated with Taurus)
