Anytime you’re dealing with planetary squares, Renstrom says, you want to do your best to “lower the temperature” when things get heated with other people, whether that’s adjusting your communication, suggesting options and alternatives, or simply trying to see the other person’s POV.
Further, he notes, Gemini season beginning on the 21st will bring a welcome breath of fresh air following an intense few days, reminding us to lean into the best qualities of this sign: openness, communication, and adaptability.
And in terms of new moon rituals or practices to do under this new moon, given that they are typically times for setting intentions, you might tap into your inner Taurus’ earthy energy and literally plant seeds, or metaphorically plant seeds through intention setting, journaling, or vision boarding.
As the AstroTwins previously wrote for mindbodygreen, Taurus new moons in general can help us connect with Mother Earth, art, nature, body positivity, and grounding. And this week, they suggest, consider it an invitation to “slow down and savor the pleasures you might normally rush right through: the first sip of morning coffee, the feel of your softest sweater against your skin, a tree-lined view on your commute to work.”
