“Will you teach your children what we have taught our children? That the earth is our mother? What befalls the earth befalls all the sons of the earth.
This we know: the earth does not belong to man, man belongs to the earth. All things are connected like the blood that unites us all. Man did not weave the web of life, he is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself."

Just in time to celebrate Earth Day, the Taurus New Moon arrives on Saturday, April 21 at 12:18 am PDT/ 3:18am EDT/ 7:18am GMT. This Taurus New Moon evokes the Goddess of the Earth, our home. This New Moon energy calls forth the new King who belongs to the Earth – Taurus as the Bull of the Mother. This new King is the Earth’s defender, a new consciousness that will focus on doing what is necessary rather than maintaining the old user and abuser system by continuing to hurt the Earth and hurt ourselves.
Listen to your bit of Earth this weekend. Visit a garden, a window-box, a forest, a mountain or a farm; go to a lake, the ocean, a river or stream. Smell and taste the air which is full of Spring here in the north and Fall in the southern hemisphere. Open your senses and your heart and ask our mother the Earth what she needs from you. And then do it, because it’s necessary and you’re the only one who can do it. You’ll find companions along the way that have heard the same voice and are also doing what is necessary.
Taurus is the sign of the zodiac concerned with the Earth and being good stewards of the Earth. Unfortunately, more and more people are losing touch with Nature, staying indoors, focused on technological toys rather than opening themselves to the healing influence of Mother Nature. Taurus is a good time to turn off our computers and TVs, put away our iPhones and just go outside!
