Your net worth can fluctuate,
but your self-worth should only appreciate. ~ Chris Gardner
The Moon will be in the sign of Taurus all day on Monday and Tuesday, however, it begins its New Moon phase around noon on Tuesday. Taurus is the sign that governs the inner side of Venus, making this new lunar cycle an auspicious time to turn inward and focus on one’s connection with self and the divine spark within. Venus is synonymous with LOVE and when associated with Taurus she is asking us to cultivate a loving relationship with our inner-self.
Astrologically, Taurus is an earth sign and represents the physical earthly domain. From a material perspective, Taurus is the sign that correlates with security with survival – that which provides our security, or allows us to feel secure – will correlate to our values and promote our survival.
When the Moon is in Taurus we will find ourselves wanting to relax and to enjoy the sensual realms, i.e., romance, massages, gourmet food, fine wine, and chocolate. Spiritually, Taurus can represent a deepening desire for divine knowledge into the sacred mysteries.
Because Taurus is associated with security and our values, it is connected Astrologically to our personal financial security. It is common within the Western World to associate our personal value and self-worth with our growing or diminishing financial status. Therefore, this is an excellent time for each of us to ponder the following:
- Do I honor, value, and nurture my unique talents?
- What do I value most and how do I love others based on my values?
- Do I believe my security comes from external resources?
- Is my inner worth based on my possessions and/or financial status?
- Can I appreciate things (and even people) without a need to possess or own them?
- Do I love myself unconditionally.
