What is the energy and focus for a Taurus New Moon?
Ruled by Venus and Earth, Taurus is all about the beauty and richness of the material world and the Earth itself. Money and security are very important to most people and this is a Taurus energy, but more accurately it is what is valuable or important to you. For many this can be emotional connections or spiritual growth rather than cash.
Taurus is a fixed sign and is wonderful for anything which requires consistent work and energy, it also gives the ability to see things through to the end. A New Moon in Taurus is a fantastic time for starting any money projects like savings or investments and also for making any new beginnings in the world that will serve to make you feel comfortable and secure.
Natural Zodiac Zone
Taurus is the ruler of the Second house in the Natural Zodiac. The second house is the place where all matters related to your immediate material and physical environment—taste, smells, sound, touch, sights are located. What you value and feel is important to you, plus what you desire and want to own and have are all second house matters.
The second house also rules income, money, and self-esteem. One of the hardest lessons in life is to learn to value yourself and what you are. Working on this issue during a Taurus New Moon may help you to ‘see the light’ and accept yourself as beautiful and worthy and unique.

Spiritual Practices for the Taurus New Moon
To be done during the night of the Taurus New Moon.
Bill Paying Ritual
This is intended for use when you have a bill or debt to be paid, rather than for
general prosperity. You need the following:
• A green candle
• Sandalwood or cinnamon oil
• Sandalwood or cinnamon Incense
• A piece of paper and pen
Use a pen or a pencil to draw a representation of the bill on the paper. Words and logos, along with the dollar figures.
You will be burning the paper, so don't use the real bill.
Rub the candle with your chosen oil and place the folded paper under the candle holder. Light the candle and the incense.
Watch the flames and say:
“The candle burns
And lights the way
For money coming
This bill will pay”
Concentrate on this specific bill and why it's important to be paid off. Let the candle burn for about 15 minutes, then snuff it out. Every day, let the candle burn for another 15 minutes for a total of 7 days (make sure the candle is large enough).
On the last day, remove the paper and light it in the flame to burn completely. Let the candle keep burning at this point until it goes out naturally.
To make the spell work, any unexpected money that comes in must be put towards this bill. If you don't, you'll find you'll just end up losing the money.
Rituals for any New Moon:
1 The New Moon is the best time for starting or launching new routines, diets, businesses, life phase – anything new that you want to last.
2 Write your intentions of what you would like to achieve or work on over the next four weeks of the Moon cycle. Use as a guide for focus during the month and check at the next New Moon how far you have come.
3 Declutter and let go of stuff you no longer need or have outgrown, creating space for new energy to come in.
