# 1 – Information on the Taurus new moon from astrograph.com…
The Taurus New Moon taking place on Saturday, April 21st – at midnight on the West coast and early morning elsewhere – is a dynamic one. The New Moon closely aspects Neptune, while Mercury is in forming conjunction with Uranus, guaranteeing still more synchronicities in the works for us over the next few weeks while the sensitivity represented by numinous and otherworldly Neptune is also still very much in the picture. Music and poetry are emphasized, and an introspective attitude that prompts us to see beneath the covers of actions and relationship motivations. This is especially so with Venus slowing in Gemini as it prepares to retrograde on May 15th. Meanwhile, Mars is still recovering its lost Zodiacal ground from its own recent retrograde, working up through the early degrees of Virgo, and at the New Moon opposes Neptune, emphasizing even more strongly a poetical and refreshingly miraculous view of the world around us.
Uranus and Neptune posited together make for an interesting and highly spiritual mix of energies. Their axial alignments every eighty-five years or so are implicated in the founding of new religions. Uranus gives the gift of insight, and Neptune the gift of compassion, enabling us to understand ourselves and our world just a little bit better, perhaps as the result of synchronous or mystical experiences in which the magical quality of what we really and truly have going for us becomes for a moment or two more immediately evident. When a surprising so-called coincidence comes along over these next few weeks, you win when you take the time to analyze it for its ulterior meaning. Could it be that this collision of events is trying to tell you something, or perhaps alter your course a little? You can find startling enlightenment and mystical motivation around every corner or – as Grateful Dead lyricist Robert Hunter famously penned – “in the strangest of places/ when you look at it right.”
Neptune can be confusing as well as inspiring, and we do well to put everything that comes to us in any form to some kind of practical test. With the Sun in Taurus we are also more in tune with the workable rather than the wild and ungrounded idea. We are inclined to dismiss the mystical truth that has no bearing on day-to-day life, or merely complaining about a problem, choosing instead to focus on what can be done about it. This action attitude will become more and more of a necessity as the summer months come on, since the Uranus–Plutosquare, drawing ever closer, becomes exact in the week following the June 20th Summer Solstice. The tension builds until then, with the pressure on for us to get it right. And what can help is when we can step back from our activities in the physical world and see with the numinous and other-dimensional viewpoint of Neptune, giving us at least a momentary glimpse behind the curtain that shields us from this ultimate reality.
# 2 – More on the new moon, excerpted from an article by Simone Butler at mooncircles.com…
The April 21 Taurus New Moon (12:20 a.m. PDT) is a superb time for financial renewal. The Sun and Moon in grounded Taurus make an elegant trine to newly-direct Mars in Virgo, freeing us to move forward with whatever we’ve been working on or struggling with since mid-January. And, the New Moon sextiles Neptune in Pisces, as it opposes Mars. By using our powers of visualization, we can take concrete steps to heal old patterns around spending and debt, and plant new seeds for abundance. It’s a matter of balancing precise Virgo with intuitive Pisces. Trust that all is well in this moment, that you are whole. Then, take action on what you’re called to do.
Money is an extension of the natural world (in the days before coin and cash, people traded for food, livestock and tools). And, your relationship to your body (an extension of the natural world) is equivalent to your relationship with money. If you cultivate physical relaxation, have faith and allow your creative juices to flow, you’ll be rewarded. But if you’re tight and fearful, your financial resources will either dry up or destroy your health. Caring for our bodies not only enhances our relationship with money, but also connects us to Mother Earth and reminds us to take care of our planet.
Spend some time with your feet on the Mother during this sensuous Taurus cycle. To stabilize and ground yourself, walk in the surf, squish your toes in the mud, or soak your feet in Epsom salts. Slow your pace and enjoy life more. Collage a piggy bank to save for something delicious, or commit to depositing a percentage of your income into a special account. Even if you think you can’t afford it, you’re apt to find that you can.

# 7 – Here’s a message from Glenyce Hughes, offering a free energy and space clearing …
I am offering a world wide energy and space clearing at no charge.
It will be completed while you sleep on April 20/12, no matter what time zone you live in.
You can use it for whatever you want the energy cleared from and the vibrations raised up. Some examples would be upsets from the past, your home, your place of business/work, your bank accounts, your health, family and friendships, etc. (and yes you can have more then 1, in fact you can have more then 1000! LOL)
To register all you need to do is send an email with your name and the country you live in. You will receive an email back with instructions on how to prepare for the clearing.
Send your email to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please share this with anyone you think may be interested. What would it take to have at least 100 countries represented in this clearing??? (there are a total of 196 countries in the world, thanks to Google for answering my question. LOL)

# 8 – And some words of wisdom to end on…
“If you’ve got somebody’s aspects in your experience that you don’t like, there’s only one reason they’re there. You keep evoking them with your attention to them. Without knowing about Law of Attraction, you have — through your old habit of observation — achieved vibrational harmony with the parts of them that you do not like, and you keep summoning those parts from them by your constant vibrational offering of them.”— Abraham
