Daily Horoscopes are written according to where the Moon is located.
For that reason you will see the Moon information 1st paragraph (below),
the 2nd paragraph is the house that affects your Sign, and the 3rd paragraph is
the horoscope itself based on the information of the 1st and 2nd paragraph.

Astrology is a map and all you have do is follow the Signs. ™ 

THE MOON IS IN TAURUS TODAY! Keywords: money, practical, stability, music, possessions, self-worth, morals, values, romance, slow to decide

The Moon in Taurus is trine (easy and effortless energy) your 9th house of the higher-thinking mind, religion, college, higher education, legalities, brothers and sisters-in-law, philosophy, prophecy, philanthropy, all things "foreign", intuition, long distance journeys abroad, churches, airlines, vacations, international commerce, dreams, visions and teachers.

Well slap my ears with jam and roll me in the mud . . . this New Moon in Taurus today crept up on us so quickly this Spring. The first thing I want you to post on your mirror in the bathroom is this line, "The strength of the New Moon in Taurus lasts from April 21 - May 5, 2012." You see folks, each and every New Moon that occurs every single month has a strength period of about 2 weeks and it is 'the beginning' of a brand spankin' new cycle for the area in your chart that the New Moon represents for 'an entire year!' For example, this New Moon in Taurus today will not be present again until May 9, 2013. There is only one New Moon in each sign once a year. THAT'S WHY it is the beginning of a new cycle for the area in your chart that the New Moon represents.

Now, for all Virgo's on the planet this affects your 9th house (see above first two paragraphs). When you draw this information closer to YOU rather than all Virgo's, then look at your personal Natal Chart and see where Taurus is in your chart and THAT IS THE AREA of your focus for this New Moon. That is the new cycle that you want to pay attention to.

It is VERY IMPORTANT to remember what each New Moon represents. This New Moon in the sign of Taurus NATURALLY rules the 2nd house of self-worth and we gain our self-worth through our morals and our values. For instance an individual with high self-worth would certainly not be coupling up with someone that made them feel bad about themselves, nor would they be eating and drinking themselves into diabetes or liver disease. They just would not do it. In fact, they would be living their Life with higher standards. It is our morals and values that dictate how we spend money, who we associate with and what physical possessions we cling that give us our sense of self-worth. This is why it is important to know how you spend your money because how you spend money reveals what you think about yourself. For instance, those who are constantly spending money (knowing they do not have it to spare) thereby run out of money keeping them in a state of lack, which is evidence of low self-worth. Then it turns into a vicious cycle of chasing a buck.

The most important thing for you to remember during this New Moon in Taurus is SELF-WORTH because this New Moon in Taurus wants to increase your self-worth! All too often individuals will look at the 2nd house (that Taurus naturally rules) and see that as the house of personal money. Well it is, but most importantly, it is self-worth because it is what you feel you are worth that dictates what kind of pay you will receive. Folks, this Taurus Moon DOES NOT SETTLE! You see, Taurus' really get a bad rap for being stubborn and they really aren't stubborn at all. They know what they want and that's it! Period, end of story! Maybe you don't know, but they do! They have already thought about what they want and that's it. Taurus is attracted to the best in Life. Even my nearly 9 year old Taurus grandson would rather eat cherries jubilee rather than cherry yogurt. He would rather have sushi or calamari than a silly fish stick. He would rather wait to have the toy he wants rather than settling for something not in his vision. I asked him one day if he wanted to go get ice cream and he responded with, "Where can we get gelato?" There is nothing more beautiful that seeing a person, any person, live out and embrace the high self-worth of Taurus in their chart. Taurus enjoys shiney, glittery, expensive and well-made anything! Taurus does not wear frumpy or knock-around clothes and they don't wear yoga pants or jogging suits unless they are sweating and working out (with their earrings and designer watch on). We could all learn how to embrace a higher sense of self-worth from the Taurus energy in our charts.

So here you have 2 weeks . . TWO WEEKS! . . to get your mind wrapped around bumping yourself up to the next level of self-worth in all forms because it will last an entire year. You decide! If you settle, then consider yourself the cow in the pasture plunked down and not moving. And when the drive-by (New Moon in Taurus) comes around next year (May 9, 2013) you may be in the same placing mooing and complaining as everyone passes you by. OUCHY! Well folks, I don't sugar coat, I think we know that, so get off your beefy butts and take yourself UP to the next level! SAY YES!

I could sit here and write about what will happen in a predictive forecast astrological way but let's face it, you have free will and you get to choose. The great thing for Virgo (as an entire sign) this affects your 9th house where you will be receiving this new cycle, new beginning, New Moon in Taurus. This 9th house brings about new adventures, experiences and travel. In fact, many Virgo's will find themselves crossing the pond (traveling overseas). Make certain that you say "Yes" before you say "No" because you can always change your mind to "no" once you say "yes" but you can't always change your mind to "yes" once you say "no". Got it? This house of legalities is the time to make a settlement or an agreement that will benefit you. AND THERE'S MORE . . . This New Moon in Taurus trines Mars in Virgo and it will also trine Pluto in Capricorn. Oh this Grand Trine is so powerfully Lovely, I just want to print out the chart and kiss it. Let's not forget the Sun will trine Pluto and Mars as well. Remember, trines are easy and effortless energy, so don't let this make you lazy because it can. Pluto naturally rules the 8th house, which is a money house, so that makes Pluto a money planet and Pluto is the higher octave of Mars, which are both natural rulers of the 8th house (money house). DAY-YANG! Folks, this is juicy, it is really really juicy and you need to squeeze this energy into knowing you can have bigger, better and more once you wrap your head around embracing your high self-worth. One last thing, Jupiter in Taurus is still present in your 9th house and this is the house that Jupiter naturally rules, which again brings new experiences, adventures, travels and general luck all the way around. It's about time Virgo get a break, huh? This is sweet, sweet, expansion and abundance.
