Taurus, known as the bull is productive, resourceful, and reliable. He is also all about staying true to personal values, beliefs, and traditions.

In the tarot, Taurus is represented by the Hierophant, the card of time honored values, traditions, and beliefs. He is the authority figure of faith and divine wisdom.

The planetary ruler of Taurus is Venus. The planet of pleasure, beauty, and the arts. In tarot, Venus is represented by the Empress. The archetypal mother, a symbol of fertility and growth and when in Taurus shows us what we

The element and modality of Taurus are represented by the King of Pentacles in the Tarot. All the kings in Tarot represent Fixed energy. Fixed energy stabilizes and sustains the actions taken in the Cardinal signs such as Aries so we may keep them as habits, routines, and traditions. In tarot, Pentacles represent Earth energy. This is energy that symbolizes values, manifestation, money, and stability.

I like to compare the moonthly cycle to the phases of a plant. At the new moon phase seeds are planted. This is when we set our intentions and goals. At the waxing first quarter moon phase, the seeds have sprouted and are growing into a visible plant. This is when we are seeing progress because we have initiated action to make our intentions into reality. At the full moon phase the plant is now at its peak and has blossomed. The flower and or fruit of a plant represents the culmination of the plant. This is a time to celebrate progress and count your blessings. At the waning third quarter moon phase the flower has wilted and started to release. At the dark moon the flower is now releasing seeds for the next new moon.

I like use a tarot spread as a framework to keep me on track to manifesting my intentions and goals. Each of the five cards in the spread below corresponds to the phases described above. I refer to this spread on a weekly basis and it helps me to refine, reevaluate and reinforce my intentions so they may manifest in my physical reality.

I will write a blog post for each of the moon phases to bring in new life to each of the phases. I use the same layout spread utilizing the first question of each spread along with the corresponding card. Then I use an additional four questions for introspection and insights. Next up on the Moonthly blog is the waxing first quarter moon in Leo on Wednesday May 19th.
