As the star sign of the sensual Bull, earthy Taurus grounds us in what is ethical and sensible. There's a reason basic ideals like "do unto others" have stuck around through the centuries. As a powerful supermoon, the Taurus new moon is a lunar lift that brings a much-needed dose of sanity back to the world AND a generous sprinkling of practical magic.
Where has your life become overly complex? Break those unwieldy plans back down to the basics. Pay attention to schedules, timelines, and budgets, making sure you've got a solid foundation built. Taurus is the first of the earth signs, so think of this new moon as a prompt to stabilize efforts on the ground floor. Once that's handled, you can build as high as you want!

Remember, there's no rush to build or renovate Rome just yet: Slow and steady Taurus would prefer we play the long game and arrive at our goals with integrity and quality in check.
Pragmatic and efficient, the Taurus new moon helps us whip our lives into shape. Are we eating fresh, healthy food? Managing our time accordingly so we aren't total stress baskets? Doing our work with integrity so we can enjoy the luscious results we create? There's another "green" that this new moon is concerned with too, since budgeting falls under Taurus' domain.
There's no time like the present to call up that financial advisor to help ensure that we don't burn through every penny we earn. Since Taurus also rules practical luxury and financial stability, make a few wishes toward abundance—and then take concrete actions to start building that nest egg by earning AND saving more. This earthy Taurus new moon reminds us to value the natural resources around us as well. Get back into an eco-chic groove.
New moons are sparks that light a fire, so circle November 4 on your calendar, the date of the corresponding full moon in Taurus. That's when we'll reap the harvest of what we plant this week.
