The Taurus New Moon Outline
Taurus is earthy and enjoys the pleasure of living in the physical world. The need for survival teaches us all self-worth, self-reliance, and the wisdom of true understanding.
The Taurus New Moon = In Taurus we find ourselves in the middle of spring, with the new growth of nature and the abundance of flourishing life. This is the sign where humans come to understand and delight in earthly and human pleasures. The instinct in all human beings to survive. Taurus is ruled by Venus, Aphrodite, the Goddess of love and beauty. Our earthly pleasures give us great joy but they provide the ability to survive. In Taurus, we come to understand that we are the creator of our life and all its abundance. Venus/Taurus stands for the principle of attraction with strong magnetism. This is the fixed sign of learning to nature, grow, and beautify our environment. And all are created by our imagination. As we learn in Venus/Taurus we are responsible for bringing into manifestation all earthly needs once we identify our power of wisdom and understanding of creation that is part of our heritage as children of God—we realize the Spirit of Abundance goes through our being and it is impossible to have lack. This is the sign of self-reliance along with self-worth and how much value others place on that worth.

OUTLINE N/M Taurus/Venus Taurus Archetype
Venus = the only planet with no poles and spins in a clockwise rotation. This creates an outward direction of energy. Thus man radiates outward towards others and devotes his consciousness to giving rather than expecting.
Leading to evolution instead of involution.

1. Caveman needed to do it minute to minute.
2. Dependent upon organism’s RESOURCE’S or TALENT & ABILITIES i.e. our talents to make money which is our means of survival;
Resource/Talents/Abilities = WHAT WE VALUE! = will connect to our MEANING or BELIEF STRUCTURES/SYSTEMS; = which will form our PHILOSOPHY or RELIGION;
Venus = the goddess of Love; She has to be constantly validated by others to know that this is so;
Venus = Beauty, and love are truly within but buried under layers and layers of shame, guilt, insecurity, doubt, and fear;
Taurus/Venus = Survival = correlates to the SEXUAL FUNCTION to PROCREATE; Our Sexual values as well i.e. the internal sexual values;
The NEED to SURVIVE will produce the need for SELF-RELIANCE or SELF-SUFFICIENCY or the reliance on the (TAURUS polarity SCORPIO) SOMEONE or SOMETHING ELSE i.e. an EXTERNAL VALUE;
Potential for Co-Dependency
INHERENT RESOURCES/TOOLS/ABILITIES…..but also aware of LIMITATIONS; i.e. natural inconjunct (friction) to (LIBRA) others—RELATIONSHIPS—becoming aware of their resources—where we may IDENTIFY a NEED TO SURVIVE from THEM;
SELF-SUSTAINMENT vs. PROJECTED NEEDS
EXTREMES produced= Needy of others or totally concerned with own sustainment to the point of ISOLATION i.e. frog-in-the-well;

Gift of ABUNDANCE = CREATIVE ENERGY, the thread & fabric of CONSCIOUSNESS that expresses in the MATERIAL WORLD.
Conscious awareness of the Presence of God i.e. becoming part of CONSCIOUSNESS = SPIRITUAL INFUSION; the energy flows into MANIFESTATION through YOU, reproducing the VIBRATION of your consciousness in the WORLD of FORM!
“Imagination is everything”
“She manifests, not objects, but patterns on the spiritual plane. These patterns are the manifestation of the abstract idea of creation. She emits patterns for the structure of existence. She provides the blueprint of nature or Matrix of the Soul.”
The Empress within you is the MASTER CREATOR in the world of form. In order to emit a new form, you must first be receptive to an abstract idea and allow such ideas to be implanted in your SELF, soul, or personal matrix.
FIRST STAGE = Receiver of the IDEA; you are the all-attracting spirit. The essence of love;
SECOND STAGE = you are the NURTURER; You HOLD & CRADLE life; you are all ABUNDANT;

Effective thinking does not FOCUS on the EFFECT! But on the REASON for the EFFECT! To correct the misperception in consciousness i.e. you’ve been given IMAGINATIVE POWER;
Trading one EFFECT 4 another EFFECT =
Praying to CHANGE effects = admitting one effect has POWER over us, saying it’s become the source of UNHAPPINESS; “I do not like this effect…Give me a different one, and this time make it more pleasurable”
Our CONSCIOUSNESS produces an undesirable experience! We must understand that the inner world is SECONDARY to the OUTER WORLD;
“Do what you LOVE to DO MOST & equate the MONEY FLOW coming endlessly from the source.”

Tibetan Master DK (Alice Bailey)
“Taurus forges the instruments of constructive living or of destruction; it forges the chains which bind or creates the key which unlocks the mystery of life. This energy—Taurus—manifests as stubbornness in the average man or as INTELLIGENTLY EXPRESSED WILL-actuated by the impulse of LOVE.”
“The Eye shining from the head of the constellation of Taurus is the TRANSMITTER of that cosmic light which is called “the penetrating Light of the Path.” (The Symphony of the Zodiac)
When inspired by the light of the EYE OF TAURUS one will seek out the DIVINE PLAN, to understand GOD’S WILL and put their divinity into action and expression.
The world most people live in is a product of the COLLECTIVE CONSCIOUSNESS which constantly mirrors duality. The false world produces by MIND or what’s called ILLUSION.

We must learn to develop and listen to the inner dialogue to follow our true destiny. We need to relate to our “surroundings,” community, and all things extending from the self. This is the “pack status” phase where we find our role in society and family surroundings. We must develop/maintain trust and faith to move forward in spite of the pressures of fears and self-doubt. This phase is the Male Instinctive/Intuitive Body or Physical Body of man. Taste, smell, and touch are the triggers for this phase as here are where we are connected to our memory of survival.
