The 2018 Taurus New Moon arrives just before revolutionary Uranus shifts signs for the first time in 8 years. The medicine amidst this transformative earthquake? Find stability in your beautiful body and create sustainable change, says Sandy Sitron …
New Moon :: May 15 2018 :: 7:49 am ET :: 24 degrees Taurus
In subterranean gardens, crystals branch, bristle and grow. Layers ripple deep underneath the surface of the earth. Hidden away from light, the crystals are orderly, cool and safe. And it remains this way for many years.
When the earthquake hits, the gardens do the thing they were never meant to do. They move. And a new pattern of rock is formed. A new stability is attained.
Taurus is your stability, sustenance, and sustainability- the subterranean crystal garden within. Your inner knowing that with patience, trust and determination, you can create diamonds out of carbon.
Uranus, the Great Awakener planet, which finishes its 8 year cycle in Aries and moves into Taurus just after the New Moon, is the earthquake— the change that you were waiting for. Or the change that you didn’t anticipate. An awakening.
At this transformative New Moon, tectonic plates of your self-worth may be imperceptibly shifting. You have an opportunity to seed new visions for how you want to do Taurus. You might be readying yourself for a new way of thinking about how you want to live your life in a body.
Taurus reminds you that it’s your birthright to be safe in a body. Your self worth is inherent, natural, and fixed. It can be abundant if you trust in it. And knowing your worth will help you revel in the abundance of Mother Earth.
Set intentions for Uranus’ entry into Taurus. Let these intentions focus on changes that help your life become more sustainable, whatever that means to you. A revolutionary experience of your own self-worth. Breakthroughs around being present in your body and stimulated by your physical senses. Shocking yourself into slowing down and getting into receptive mode. A new way of viewing the energy of money.
Uranus in Taurus will shake you, prod you, and poke you until you welcome yourself home. Home to your body, home to your receptive nature and home to your self-worth.
Use this New Moon as a bridge to the other side of the crystalline chasm …

The plant evolves.
A better philosophy can take you places. You can change the direction of your growth with some positive thinking. Nothing about this is easy. Sometimes evolution doesn’t leave any space for the old way. And the old growth has to fall away. Set intentions that will help you feel more free and more trusting. You’ll grow into it later, in the same way that the plant seeks out the sun.

You’ve got somewhere to go and you can plan out the path. The more systematized you make it, the less friction you’ll find. Part of the plan involves crafting a sense of fluid stability. This is the kind of stability that can follow you. It doesn’t keep you stuck, but it helps you feel safe wherever you go.
