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.
Moon Cycles compared to Plant Cycles
I like to compare the new moon cycle to the cycle 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 taken 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/peak 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.
New Moon Tarot Spread
Do the tarot spread below at each new moon as each spread spirals into the next.
Card 1 - Planting seeds of intention - New Moon
Card 2 -The seed grows - Waxing Moon
Card 3 - Plant blossoms - Full Moon
Card 4 - Plant releases seeds - Waning Moon
Card 5 - Receive seeds and plant them next new moon - Next New Moon
What is the seed of the Taurus Moonth?

I will write a blog post for each of the moon phases. At each of the phases of the moon, I come back to my new moon tarot spread. I take the card that represents the moon phase, for example Card 2 is the Waxing Moon/ Seed Grows phase. Then place the card into card one position and I ask yourself introspective questions. Here are some example openers for the questions. They are always opened ended and intended to get your mind and intuition working together.
What begins to grow as the moon waxes?
How can I..
What do I need to know about ..
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.
