The New Moon is in the strong-willed sign of Taurus, and that means a few big changes are heading your way…whether you’re ready or not.
Taurus is about nature, resources, fertility and basic values. So this is a good time to ground yourself in what’s most important, especially if you’ve been feeling battered by current events. Remind yourself what matters most, to you. Then, consider what has the potential to grow in your life. What can you nurture? This is not the time to get complicated – focus on the simplest pleasures (what feels and tastes good) and what aligns with your values. Any relationship or situation that does not contribute to your security, comfort and growth needs to be weeded out.
The Taurus New Moon on April 22, reminds us that a grand new beginning is on the horizon. This grand new beginning has not yet arrived, but it is slowly drawing closer, and this New Moon is our stepping stone on the path towards it.
Taurus is a supremely practical sign, often accused of being selfish. There’s a lesson here – sometimes you need to be selfish to ensure your security and happiness.

In other words, it is time for you to do something about where you want to be in the world and the goals you need to reach.
Virgo – This Taurus New Moon is a time for you to plant the seeds for the future, in accordance to your own beliefs and code of ethics, rather than following anyone else’s vision. It’s time to consolidate your position in publishing, academia, broadcasting, marketing or international relations and PR and to make a solid start at expanding your base of operations.

Doing so will help you professionally too, even amid all the changes that are happening around your home base right now.
Scorpio – This New Moon is all about relationships for you, dear Scorpio. It is a chance to make a new beginning in your romantic relationships and business partnerships and to shape your one-to-one interactions with others the way you want them.

It is about actually doing something to improve your efficiency rather than talking about it, to get a healthy routine going or find the job that you want!

Capricorn – Taurus is such a wonderful sign for you, dear Capricorn, as it rules the part of your chart that allows you to draw the most love and joy out of life! This New Moon in Taurus is right up your alley. It may signal the beginning in earnest of a love-affair or bring an opportunity to seed and fertilise a creative project that can bring you lots of joy, or it may signify a new and happy start with your children!

But this time Saturn is giving you a lesson that you are less familiar with: it urges you to let go of excess baggage so that you can enjoy life more!
Aquarius – This New Moon is here to help you make a new start in your home and family life. This is a golden opportunity to secure your life’s foundation and make sure that you are placing yourself on a solid financial basis, but also on a good set of values to carry you through in the long haul.

This is important, for Saturn at the top of your chart is bent on giving you a lot of responsibility, adjusting your overall career-direction and raising your profile to a point where people are watching your every move. Of course, you want to rise to the challenge! This New Moon may urge you to simplify your communications and movements despite (or in the face) of your rising responsibilities.
