It’s a new moon in Taurus, and it’s time to plant some seeds. But whether they are actual seeds that need water, sun, and soil, or seeds of intention for your life, on May 4th you must plant them diligently.
Just be prepared to take care of your seeds too, especially over the next six months. That’s how long it takes new moon wishes to take root. Here are 5 Taurus new moon rituals you can do to plant the seeds for your bright future.
1. Plant a wishlist.
To do this ritual, you will need a large pot, some soil, organic fertilizer, and real seeds. Just make sure the seeds you select belong to plants that will survive longer than six months. You can even select seedlings that mirror your wishes, like wildflowers for an unexpected romance or succulents for resilience.
Then compile a wishlist of things you want to achieve in your life over the next 6 months. It’s best to focus on earthy wishes for now since it’s a Taurus new moon. For example, you can wish for a higher earning capacity or to find a new romantic partner.
Plant this list in the soil along with your seed. Just make sure you fold the sheet as small as you can so it doesn’t hamper the seed’s growth. Your wish will come true if the plant survives. Alternatively, you can find a space in your yard and plant a seed in the soil along with your wishlist.
Taurus rules the throat and vocal cords, so don’t miss the chance to sing, especially under the night sky. And don’t worry if you are a terrible singer. This ritual is less about singing like a pop star and more about singing to set yourself free, particularly if you find it difficult to say no when you want to or never speak up for yourself.
In case the thought of singing feels weird to you, just hum as loudly as you can. Not a tune. Just say, “Hmmmmmmm,” and feel the vibrations in your throat.
3. Indulge your senses.
Taurus is ruled by Venus, the planet of love and desire. So, don’t hold yourself back. Indulge your senses freely.
Want to eat a decadent chocolate cake? Have it. Want to buy the new KKW fragrance? Buy it. Want to surround yourself with art and architecture? Go to a gallery or wander down some posh streets.
Just remember not to feel guilty while you are doing this. It’s just for a day (if you want it to be that way), so you might as well enjoy it to the fullest.
4. Eat organic for a day.
Taurus is an earthy sign, so why not eat things that grow in the dirt for one day? It doesn’t matter whether it’s raw or cooked, as long as it’s an organic veggie meal. You can even check out Buzzfeed Tasty for some awesome recipes in case you don’t know how to cook your greens.
5. Take a cleansing bath.
You will need some incense sticks (or a bundle of white sage), fresh flowers, your favorite essential oils, and Himalayan salt to do this new moon ritual.
Start by waving the smoke of your cleansing tool of choice (white sage or incense) around your body. Don’t forget your feet and head. This will clear your aura. Then clear the energy of your bathroom and tub. Keep the windows open when you do this.
Next, draw yourself a bath and add a few drops of your favorite essential oils to it. Throw in the Himalayan salt and flowers after that. And then step into the water. Soak yourself in this water for five minutes to allow the magic to work its way into you. And then go ahead and finish your bath.
