This Taurus New Moon on May 19th, 2023 invites us all to connect to a more stable energy.
It marks the first lunar cycle since the beginning of Eclipse Season and is the start of a more grounding period of time as those chaotic eclipse energies fade away a bit.
As you know, the energy of Eclipses often brings chaos, change, challenges, and uncertainty.
While these can be galvanizing, they can also be ungrounding.
The calm, rootedness of Taurus brings some much-needed stability and security.
A time when you can enjoy something of a pause and take time to rebalance and reflect.
As Taurus is an Earth sign linked to security, stability, and feeling rooted – these are all prominent themes during this New Moon.
They also provide vital points of reflection for manifesting success.
You might feel issues surrounding your sense of security and confidence in the world come up for review, making it the perfect time to dig deep into the root cause behind these insecurities.
In our current ‘hustle’ culture we don’t often give enough credit to the importance of being calm, steady, and rooted, but this is in fact where all of your power lies.
When you are focused, calm, not rushing around, and not worrying about the next thing on your list – you are radiating a far more secure and stable energy.
Of course, challenges arise and life happens, but when you are more connected to your inner being and moving from a place of calm security –
you don’t allow life to shake you about so much.
You tap into your inner power and make your decisions from a more grounded place.
This kind of inner security is such an important part of manifesting your desires.
The higher frequency of calm confidence attracts what you want into your life.
The chaotic energy of rushing and feeling powerless only serves to push it away.
While the pause created by this New Moon in Taurus gives us an opportunity to recenter ourselves, it also allows us to reconnect with our true ability to manifest by inviting us to activate our true Power Center – the Solar Plexus.
Activate your Power Center
Having a healthy, balanced, and super-charged Solar Plexus Chakra is vital for your feelings of willpower, purpose, motivation, action, ambition, inner strength, and power.
The Solar Plexus Chakra is your third chakra sitting right above your navel.
It glows bright golden yellow like a sun when it is balanced and healthy, and is one of the most important connections you have to the energy of the Universe and is the basis of your self-esteem and vitality.
Spiritually, the Solar Plexus Chakra rules over your acceptance of your place in life —
your self-love and self-belief.
This is all connected to your confidence, self-esteem, sense of self-worth, and the absolute core of your personality and ego.
Physically, it supports your liver, pancreas, gallbladder, stomach and
If you experience feelings of powerlessness, self-consciousness, shame, fear of the future, and defensiveness you need to work on balancing this chakra.
This New Moon in Taurus is an excellent time to focus on healing and activating the energy in this chakra to support you in your efforts to transform intentions into reality and manifest.
So how can you activate your Solar Plexus Chakra?
Here are some easy practices:
- Write and Reflect
In your journal write about the ways in which you see yourself as powerless compared to others.
In what ways are you afraid of the future? Where do you play it safe in your life for fear of change?
Now write about how you view the concept of going with the flow in life.
Focus on the idea that there is only so much you can do.
Focus on the importance of allowing Source energy –
the Universe to co-create with you instead of getting stressed about trying to control the uncontrollable.
- Apply this to your Life.
Apply the idea that you are a co-creator with the Universe to your life, your goals, and projects, and see how in that surrender and trust you are able to relax and give in to the flow of life.
By reminding yourself that your focus is purely trained on what you are able to do you allow the Universe to help you.
3. Focus on Contribution and less on Accomplishment
It’s very human to be heavily focused on outcomes and expectations.
Accomplishments make the ego feel valued and worthy.
However, contribution to others is what actually makes you feel whole and happy on a soul level.
Focusing on how you can be of service to other people in the world is not attached to an outcome, rather it has inherent value on its own.
Write down all the ways you have expectations and are reliant on outcomes and validation.
Write down how much time you spend doing something to contribute to the world at large.
Assess this and see how you can begin to contribute more and focus less on accomplishment.
This can be simply the way you interact in the world, it does not have to mean you suddenly become a social activist or donate all your belongings to charity.
- Activate with Sound Vibration
Inhale and exhale. Bring your awareness to your Solar Plexus Chakra, just above your belly button. Intone the “ah” vowel sound and as you hold out the sound, feel the vibration in your Solar Plexus area. Imagine a bright yellow sun radiating out powerful, healing energy.
Activating your Solar Plexus will help to boost your intentions and keep you feeling motivated to see your desires manifest. It can also strengthen the digestive organs ruled by this chakra.
Use this energy to charge your sense of self, power, and purpose in the world.
When you have a balanced Solar Plexus, you know what you want and take active steps towards those goals.
You radiate self-worth, and confidence, and magnetize balance and healing towards you. You have great boundaries, and keep your word and all commitments to yourself.
You know what your beliefs are and you are not swayed into doing anything that is out of integrity with those beliefs.
Take the time this Taurus New Moon to charge up your Solar Plexus Chakra and watch your life transform as you stand in your true power.
Owning your power inspires others to do the same! Do not be afraid to shine your light.
