A New Moon in Taurus is visible tonight. We cleanse and replenish as we celebrate new beginnings with a New Moon in the sign of opulent Taurus. The New Moon is when the Sun and Moon are aligned, with the Sun and Earth on opposite sides of the Moon. The New Moon is the first lunar phase, when the Moon and Sun have the same ecliptic longitude. As the Moon turns its dark side toward us, turn yourself inward and away from the draining energy of others. It is a time of healing.
Sometimes it’s important to just step back and keep the peace. We do not need to become emotionally involved in matters that should not be our concern. Someone near and dear to us needs to work out their own difficulties and we should not interfere. When we step into our automatic ‘fix it’ response to help a friend solve a problem, we’re reinforcing the same level of thinking – thinking that clearly isn’t working. The most important thing you can do for someone is to encourage them to think about their issue in a different way. Often, this will help them solve their problems on their own. That will give them more insight for the future. But if it’s more than they can handle, by all means do what you can to help.
