Taurus New Moon Forecast '24

Taurus, bull, wreathe, moon


The new moon can be thought of as a window in time when the Higher-Self initiates specific lessons or personal growth intentions for the coming month, and we can use the lunar cycle as a way of decoding evolutionary forces at a more granular level than the solar cycle or the transits of the slower moving planets.

For the spiritually minded person, the new moon is a time to receive the seed impulses for one’s personal evolution, and specifically those impulses toward bringing something new into conscious awareness. Each moon cycle fits into a larger cycle, which begins at the Aires new moon, and if you seriously want to track the unfolding pattern of higher-self guidance, it is a really good idea to record a log or journal of key messages and impressions received in the few hours before and after the new moon, roughly 4-5 hours on either side. During this window of time, make space to be more meditative and pay attention to your thoughts, inspirations, psychic messages and so on, as these will tend to correspond to the archetype the new moon is birthing in at the time, and correlate to the growth themes we are meant to work with during the month.

At some point in time (after a few months) you can look through your log and begin to see a key pattern unfolding, which can stimulate further insight in terms of life purpose.


To begin with...

The New Moon in Taurus initiates a move of energy inward toward stabilisation and practical action. There have been significant Aries initiations through the recent equinox, and a total solar eclipse in Aries last month, where impulses toward breaking free from the past are setting the scene for new pathways of development and self-discovery, or making ready for new directions over the next 6 months. Now as the energy moves inward, we are drawn toward the practical next steps; 

  • How are we going to make new desires a reality? 

  • What foundations do we now need to lay first? 

  • What new resources do we need to develop in order to break from the past and move forward?

  • How do we ground new inspirations as part of the next steps toward manifestation?

This may be a month where guiding impulses quieten down as we internalise and figure out what we want, and how we are going to proceed. If we have been overactive, we may be called to slow down and reflect; ground and get real.

This month's chart is dynamic with numerous opposing energies, 2 Yod formations and a Grand Trine, so lets take a deeper look at what’s on offer this lunation…

Core essential needs are central to this months process

With a stellium of 5 planets in Taurus this new moon, we can expect the theme of core essential needs to be a significant co-factor. 

How many of us are in touch with our evolving core essential needs? 

How many of us lack awareness of this crucial life aspect and its influence on relationships and wellbeing? 

The issue of resources may also be an active theme this month: 

  • Do we have the inner and outer resources to move on our desires? 

  • Do we need to pay attention to how we can manifest what we most need?

  • Do we have what it takes to endure life challenges?

Uranus has been transiting Taurus since around 2019 causing shakes ups in the world in relation to resources and needs, driving an evolutionary process toward personal objective insight and awareness over what we most value, what we most need, and how we deal with resources, which is often very different to what corporate narratives within society tell us. For example long term exposure to news and advertising has a powerful influence over what we think we want and need from life. This type of social engineering generally puts many of us out of touch with true needs, and Uranus in Taurus has been generating new awareness, causing many to liberate from socially conditioned values, via a reevaluation of basic needs and what is most important to us as individuals.

New healing paths continue to be a core theme

With Chiron conjunct the lunar North Node, the issue of natural healing is now highly energised as the world moves forward. In addition, Hygeia, the goddess of holistic healing, is also conjunct the North Node this lunation, adding even more emphasis. For many, the way forward currently goes hand in hand with a shift toward more holistic values and a migration from the narrow and rigid mindset of orthodox medicine. Some of this movement is generated from the knock-on effects of Covid and vaccine injury, catalysing more and more people to look elsewhere for solutions to health crises.

Part of this shift is occurring through the dissemination of up to date information censored by the corporate propaganda machine, especially energised this month by Chiron conjunct Mercury in Aries trine to Praamzius and Varda. This grand trine formation generates a great deal of energy, fuelling both the discovery of new holistic healing methods, as well as the sharing of cutting edge information typically suppressed by Big Pharma. Examples of this are Jonathan Otto’s numerous docu-series addressing cancer and chronic illness, as well as Jonathan Landsman’s docu-series on heart health and cancer. In addition there are several other health disseminators now active e.g. The Heart Mind Institute focusing on mental health, Zonia on cognitive health, and the Human Longevity Project. 

An evolutionary call to right action

Pluto now in the early degrees of Aquarius is beginning to shift the collective orientation away from rigid and dogmatic systems. The path to expanded awareness is now accelerating, and it is important that the collective momentum moving into the future starts on the right foot; the shadow of Aquarius is technocratic slavery through the mis-use of technology to create an elite run world, and Varuna in opposition to Pluto, which began just recently in 2017, and will continue for another 80 years, acts as a beneficial influence. This alignment is both helpful and poignant; human evolution is now tasked with integrating self-realisation and self-mastery as we move forward into the future; more and more we will be stimulated to “innerstand”, through polarised events, that the new emerging Aquarian culture must cultivate personal sovereignty and the self-realisation journey, as a counter-balance to the inevitable technological boom predicted over the next 20 years, as Pluto transits through Aquarius. Without this balancing co-factor, we will more than likely be drawn toward dystopian or catastrophic outcomes, caused by the chronic disempowerment and controlled awareness of the masses, seduced into techno addictions that serve only the corporations pedalling them.

This month, Varuna makes a trine with Mars and Manwë, both in turn are square to Ixion. The Manwë/Ixion square has been ongoing for some months now, representing an energised battle between light and dark forces on many levels within our societies. This month, Mars adds more energy to the Light-Worker and Light-Warrior archetypes, potentially activating many of those already awakening, to a new level of activism within the Ascension window of transition now occurring. Those of us awakened enough to understand that there is a new path to follow, are now harmonising with the process of self-mastery to become increasingly more sovereign. In some sectors this new activism will kick start over the issue of health-sovereignty and freedom, in other sectors evolutionary traction is now generating through the increasing poverty in the West, the loss of the middle classes, and a widening gap between the rich and the poor. 

Reconciling with the past

A Yod with the lunar South Node at the apex, generates inner tension this month toward reconciliation with the past as a means to free up energy for new life experiences. The new moon is in sextile to Saturn and Nessus in Pisces; the introverted nature of this lunation energy lends itself productively toward self-reflection, especially with regard to personal pain, linked to past errors or indiscretions. There is scope this month to make peace with our mistakes; to hold space for recapitulation, in order to more fully understand and take responsibility for the way personal suffering is linked directly to growth and self-mastery. Through this opportunity there is potential to reach a new level of personal integration. The key here is toward accepting challenge as a necessary part of the path, rather than fixating on a need for comfort as a life constant, with a consequential cascade of negative states such as guilt, shame, negative self-judgement and humiliation.

Through healing, the path becomes clearer

A second Yod (linked to the first) features the lunar North Node and Hygeia sextile Chariklo, with Orcus in Virgo at the apex. Making space for, and taking a lead with a holistic and integral life approach, will cultivate a clearer sense of the path we are meant to take. Nessus issues are innately connected with deviations from natural law, and the devaluing of the feminine principle; when we ignore the impulses from the soul, and bypass intuition and let the ego-personality take the wheel, we are doing ourselves a disservice. To be enmeshed in the False Matrix distortion reality is to compromise the sacred contract we have with the soul, and to do so causes suffering. Orcus in Virgo represents the spiritual initiate learning to walk the path in accordance with natural law, which requires all of us to work adeptly with the Divine feminine aspect within; to walk the path is to trust, listen and cooperate with universal forces for the highest good of all beings. 

This month some of us may be consciously working with patterns of suffering, by ourselves or with others, and through holistic healing find more balance, and strengthen a commitment to a spiritual path in service to the whole.

With the Grand Trine featuring Varda, Praamzius, Hygeia and the North Node, there is a lot of supportive energy from the Logos (ordering principle) for the healing and awakening process. I suspect there will be moments this month when we can grasp higher principles coming via intuitive means that in turn nourish our sense of personal truth, life meaning, and direction.

With Uranus in new phase conjunction with Jupiter, this is a potent time for insight and expanded awareness, and with Neptune conjunct Teharonhiawako (T-Wako) in sextile, some of these insights may correlate with a deeper appreciation of light and shadow energies. The modern sensibility is one that tends to deny the shadow; we like to think humanity has reached heights never before attained, while turning away from the exploitation of the third world, the growing poverty and homelessness in our own neighbourhoods, and the global decline in health and wellbeing. In my view we are not at all at the peak of our evolutionary potential, and the sooner we face this reality, the easier it will be to implement the many needed changes to improve human wellbeing and happiness for everyone. With Neptune and T-Wako in close conjunction at this time, spiritual awakening and the quest for greater meaning is innately linked to the necessity of accepting the dual nature of reality in all its beauty and magnificence.
