The Moon enters Taurus shortly after midnight EDT on Saturday morning. Three hours later, Luna catches up to the Sun for their monthly conjunction known as a New Moon. Saturday’s Taurus New Moon continues a recent pattern of the luminaries conjoining shortly after both have entered a new sign. Contrary to recent pattern, this particular New Moon will represent the opportunity to find relief, both energetically and in practice.
Relief can take many forms. It is a release, like that which follows thunder or an orgasm. Relief is also help when you need it. Finally, relief can be distinction by contrast (as in sculpture or painting). The aspects to Saturday’s New Moon indicate the potential for all forms of relief. The initial release takes the form of an asteroid with a serendipitous name.
Saturday’s Taurus New Moon will be precisely and tensely squared from Aquarius by asteroid Toro. Although that asteroid is actually named after an astronomer’s spouse, the word ‘toro’ means ‘bull’ in Spanish. The character of a bull is also, of course, represented by Taurus. Hence, the nascent identity of a lunar cycle will be symbolically challenged by an asteroid just as that cycle is beginning.
Perhaps you are entering this weekend on the threshold of a new cycle of your own. If you find your self-image challenged by what you are about to begin, take relief from the astrology. The unlikely square of Toro to the Taurus New Moon is above all brief. The tension can be relieved simply by moving forward, releasing the beginning to the beginning, carrying it only as a memory which will ultimately find a unique and separate identity that, in some way, will inform rather than challenge yours. Further informing the nature of Saturday’s New Moon is another object recent to Taurus.
