The Taurus part of your birth chart is receiving a lot of attention this week and next.

Taurus is a fixed earth sign that likes stability, security and safety. It also encourages you to appreciate the sensual pleasures in life. It is ruled by Venus who loves comfort, art, beauty, pleasure, intimacy and connection.

In the northern hemisphere, we are at a time in spring when growth really picks up. It’s a time of planting, productivity, agriculture and earthiness. Can you smell it in the air? I walked in my backyard yesterday and it smelled like good, fresh, healthy dirt. If Taurus had a smell, it might be that.

A Little About the Energy of Taurus

Taurus doesn’t want you to only meditate your way to enlightenment. Taurus wants you to dig your hands in the dirt and feel the Earth Mother drawing you towards her. Taurus wants you to feel the Divine moving through the bones in your hands.

Taurus is also a fixed sign which means it is good at sustaining effort and focusing energy in a consistent way, which is essential for manifesting your intentions. For this reason, on some level it’s probably helpful to embrace the energy of Taurus to be a witch. Taurus also teaches patience and respect for natural processes and reminds you that slow and steady growth is needed sometimes. I know. I know. No one likes to wait for what they want but such is life.

Overall, Taurus is the spirit of persistence, pleasure, and practicality. It wants to help you build strong foundations from which your sense of security and comfort can grow. The energy of Taurus is like your inner witch knowing you are safe and strong because the core of who you are is unbreakable and unfuckwithable. It’s YOU feeling strong like a bull who can bust through any obstacle.

A Little About the Taurus Constellation

I like learning a little about the history of the stars that are part of the zodiac because it helps me connect to the ancient myths and magic that surround them. The constellation of stars known as Taurus has a prominent star cluster called the Pleiades which ancients believed was linked to agriculture and the planting season. This cluster, also known as the “Seven Sisters,” has been observed and revered by various cultures around the world.

In ancient times, the Pleiades were closely associated with agriculture due to their seasonal visibility in the night sky. Their appearance was an important marker in the agricultural calendar. This event typically occurred during late spring, signaling the time for planting crops. The disappearance of the Pleiades from the night sky, on the other hand, coincided with the harvest season in autumn, marking a period of reaping what had been sown.

The Pleiades also appear in numerous myths across different cultures as guides, creators, or nurturers, reinforcing their role in supporting life and productivity. Their appearance and disappearance in the sky were interpreted as signs of the gods’ communication with the people, providing direct guidance on when to engage with the earth for planting and harvesting.

Therefore, in Taurus, the energy of the Pleiades emphasizes a connection to the earth that is both nurturing and productive. It underscores the importance of timing, patience, and alignment with natural rhythms—principles that are fundamental to both successful agriculture and to living a spiritually grounded life. As the song goes, there is a time and season for everything – and living in rhythm with that is, in my opinion, a spiritual experience.  Because of this, Taurus encourages us to embrace the material realities of the world while also recognizing the spiritual forces that animate and enrich it.

In modern new age spirituality, beings believed to originate from the Pleiades, often referred to as Pleiadians, are depicted as highly evolved spiritual entities that communicate through various channelers to impart wisdom and guidance to humanity. The overarching messages shared by these Pleiadian beings tend to focus on themes of love, light, and spiritual awakening. They emphasize the importance of human consciousness evolution, encouraging individuals to raise their vibrational frequencies and align more closely with universal love and harmony.

Pleiadians are often portrayed as benevolent and caring beings who want to help us transition to a higher consciousness. They teach about the interconnectedness of all life and the importance of living in a way that honors this unity.

The Pleiadians (through channelers) often speak about the power of healing through energy and light, suggesting that humans have the innate ability to heal themselves and the planet through meditative practices and by channeling cosmic energies.

They advocate for personal and planetary healing by encouraging individuals to clear negative patterns and to embrace their inner divinity. 

Taurus and Your Inner Divinity

The way Taurus encourages you to embrace your inner divinity is earthy. It encourages you to see your divinity through the sacredness of the physical world and your experiences within it.

Taurus’s earthy nature teaches us to appreciate the here and now, grounding us in the present moment and reminding us that the divine can be found in the touchable, smellable, tasty aspects of life. By slowing down and engaging fully with the sensory experiences that life offers—whether through nature, art, food, or physical touch—Taurus invites you to find the divine in everyday moments. This sign’s association with Venus enhances this by emphasizing beauty and love as gateways to experiencing spiritual connection and divine love.

Embracing your inner divinity, according to Taurus’s perspective, involves acknowledging that there is something sacred and valuable within you and in the material world around you. It encourages seeing the divine not only in spiritual or transcendent experiences but also in the simple, grounded aspects of life. For Taurus, the divine might be most palpable while walking in your garden, enjoying a gourmet meal, or crafting something beautiful with your hands.

The way I practice my spirituality in my art journal and encourage you to do the same is actually a very Taurus way of living with the sacred.

Taurus also inspires stability and perseverance, essential qualities for maintaining a spiritual practice and staying connected to your divine core, especially during challenging times. The endurance of Taurus shows that sometimes, embracing your inner divinity means persisting in your values and self-worth, even when external circumstances are difficult.

In essence, Taurus teaches that by valuing and nurturing yourself, your talents, and your environment, you honor the divinity inherent in all things. This approach not only enhances your personal spiritual journey but also allows you to live more harmoniously with the world around you, seeing the sacred in the seemingly mundane and connecting deeply with the divine essence that permeates every aspect of your life.

Your Journal as a Portal to the Divine

As you may already know about me, I believe fostering a better understanding of yourself and the divine happens when you paint and play in the pages of your art journal in rhythm with the moon and the seasons. Your journal becomes a portal to your inner self, your spirit allies and ancestors and to the forces of love surrounding you. It helps you live with greater depth and meaning and all you have to do is carve out time from your busy life to light a candle, tune into the season or the moon, open your journal and get out your favorite supplies and play.

It’s as simple and marvelous as that but nothing happens until you actually do it so go get your art journal out and commit to play with a couple of these themes this week to align with the archetype of Taurus.

Build Your Sense of Self-Worth

Building your sense of self-worth means recognizing and appreciating your intrinsic value as a person, independent of external accomplishments or validation. It’s about understanding that you are worthy simply because you exist.

Taurus inspires us to appreciate and nurture our talents and qualities, fostering a sense of abundance and contentment that originates from within.

Building your sense of self-worth is beneficial because it leads to healthier relationships, a more positive outlook, and a greater resilience against stress and adversity. What you’re looking for here is to explore what a strong and secure sense of self means to you or do something in your art journal that helps you grow a positive sense of who you are and the goodness you are worthy of.

Start by writing affirmations that reinforce your value and strengths. Use phrases like “I am worthy of _________,” or “My presence is enough.” Decorate around these affirmations with symbols of abundance and stability, such as trees, mountains, or fields. Use earthy tones that Taurus loves, like greens, browns, and golds.

Or, draw or paint a self-portrait that celebrates some good you’ve gifted the world or the people you love in it with. Surround your self-portrait with images or scenes representing the positive impact you make in this world just by being you.  

Play with Techniques that Ground and Center You

Taurus, an earth sign, is fundamentally about grounding. Grounding in this context refers to techniques that promote an immediate connection with the present moment, helping stabilize your emotions and calm your mind.

This is often achieved by engaging the senses, which brings attention away from stressors and anchors you in the here and now. And by the ways, all the suggestions I mention in the next section to help you engage with your physical senses would also be helpful for grounding and centering you.

Grounding can regulate your nervous system by shifting it from a state of heightened alertness (fight or flight) to a more relaxed state (rest and digest).

Grounding helps in your spiritual practice by creating a stable foundation from which to explore deeper emotional and spiritual questions. When you’re not overwhelmed by anxiety or disarray, you can approach your spiritual journey with clarity and intention. The grounded state enhances your ability to connect with your higher self or your spirit allies and ancestors, engage with your spiritual beliefs, and perform rituals with a focused and present mind. I usually incorporate grounding exercises before I begin a moon ritual in my art journal for this reason. Here are a few ideas to try:

  1. Color Washing: Choose calming colors such as blues, greens, or earth tones, and use a wet brush to spread them in broad strokes over a page. The repetitive motion of brushing and the visual calmness of the colors can help soothe your nervous system, grounding your emotions.
  2. Nature Impressions: Collect a few natural items like leaves, flowers, or small twigs. Place these on your journal page and paint over them, then remove the items to reveal their impressions. This technique not only connects you to nature—a powerful grounding force—but also is simple and playful enough for you to not get all up in your head about what you’re creating.
  3. Visual Anchors: Paint or draw a personal symbol or motif that represents stability and calm for you. This could be a mountain, a tree, or any other image that evokes a sense of solidity.
  4. Coloring Book Pages: Go back to the basics and color a page from a coloring book using colors feeling calming and soothing to you that day. This is often a simple enough exercise to keep your busy mind quiet.
  5. Doodles and Designs: Fill a page with random doodles or repeat a simple design over and over again until the page is filled. The repetitiveness or randomness of either of these exercises should help ground you in the here and now.

Engage with Your Physical Senses

Taurus teaches the importance of the senses and the physical body in spiritual practice. By engaging with your senses, you deepen your connection to the Earth and the material world. Here are a few ideas to get you started:

  1. Touch and Texture: Start by focusing on the sense of touch. Use materials that add texture to your pages, such as adding thick layers of acrylic paint, pasting fabric scraps, or embedding small beads and natural items like leaves or sand. As you apply these things, pay close attention to how they feel. Notice how the roughness of sand contrasts with the smoothness of paint or the softness of fabric. Maybe you want to get your hands dirty and paint with your fingers. You might notice that focusing on touch makes the act of journaling more meditative and grounding.
  2. Scent: Incorporate elements that bring scent into your art practice. You might add a few drops of essential oils to your paint or use scented markers. Maybe you want to make your own paints out of fruits and vegetables. Or maybe you want to play with things like mint leaves or rosemary and make prints of those plants as you enjoy the way they smell. You can even choose scents that connect you to any intentions you may want to set at the new moon such as lavender for relaxation, citrus for energizing, or pine for grounding. As you work in your journal, take deep breaths and notice how the scents affect your mood and creativity.
  3. Sight and Color: Visually, Taurus resonates with rich, earthy colors that reflect its connection to nature and stability. Experiment with greens, browns, deep reds, and golds. As you select and mix colors, focus on how they make you feel. Do they evoke a sense of calm, vitality, or comfort? Use these colors to paint something you love in nature or just enjoy the colors you mixed.
  4. Sound: While journaling, you can enhance your auditory senses by listening to sounds that inspire creativity and relaxation. Play nature sounds, like a forest or ocean waves, or calming music in the background. Notice how the sounds influence your creative process and how they make you feel.
  5. Taste: This one might be a little tricky to play with in your art journal. Don’t taste the paint – unless you made it yourself out of fruits or vegetables! Instead, you can engage your sense of taste by keeping a small plate of snacks nearby while you work in your art journal—perhaps some fruits, nuts, or a piece of dark chocolate. Choose foods that are grounding and nourishing. Take a moment to savor each bite. You could also gather some fruits and vegetables that are about to go bad and cut them in half and put paint a part of their surface that interests you and press that onto a page in your journal to make a print of it. You’re not playing with taste directly but you are remembering how everything tastes as you make a print of it.

Express Gratitude for Physical Blessings

Expressing gratitude for physical blessings means acknowledging and appreciating the tangible things in your life—like your home, body, the food on your table, and the beauty of the natural world around you. This practice is particularly aligned with the archetype of Taurus, which values the earthy, material aspects of life. Taurus encourages you to find stability and joy in your physical environment and the comforts it provides, helping to cultivate a mindset of abundance and security. This shifts your focus from what you lack to what you possess, deepening your connection to the earth and the material blessings it provides.

Here are some creative ways to express gratitude for physical blessings in your art journal:

  1. Collage of Comfort: Create a collage that represents the physical comforts in your life. You might include images of your home, favorite places, foods you enjoy, or items that bring you comfort like books, blankets, or your pet. Arrange these images on a page and paint or draw connecting elements that bring them together, such as roots or vines, symbolizing how these comforts ground and sustain you.
  2. Blessings Inventory: Dedicate a page to listing the physical blessings in your life. Use a fine-tip pen to write small but legibly around illustrations of items you’re grateful for. You can draw icons representing these items, such as a bed for a good night’s sleep or a shoe for the ability to walk and explore. Color these drawings with warm, earthy tones to enhance the feeling of gratitude and abundance.
  3. Gratitude Garden: Paint or sketch a garden scene where each plant or flower represents a different physical blessing. Label each one with a short note on why you’re thankful for that particular blessing. This visual metaphor can help you see the growth and nurturing aspects of gratitude, emphasizing how nurturing your blessings can lead to more abundance—key concepts in Taurus energy.
  4. Visual Thank You Note: Craft a visual thank-you note to a higher power you believe in for the physical blessings in your life. This can be as detailed or as simple as you like.

I hope you enjoy playing with the energy of Taurus in your art journal to deepen your spiritual practice. I know I will.

The Moon This Week

If you want to work with the moon to do your emotional work or deepen your creativity, here’s a summary of the moon’s energy from Monday – Sunday with daily prompts you can explore in your art journal.


The disseminating moon is in the sign of Capricorn. It is also having a happy relationship with Saturn, Uranus and Jupiter and a tense relationship with Mercury.

When the Moon is in a happy relationship with Uranus, it represents the beauty of standing out and embracing every part of you that feels ‘other’ or ‘different’. Imagine understanding and accepting all the unique, unconventional aspects of yourself.

Uranus, as a planet that represents innovation, sudden changes, and breaking from tradition, brings a dynamic energy that encourages you to celebrate the qualities and experiences that make you different.

It’s a time when you might feel more inclined to express your individuality and embrace aspects of your personality or life that you usually keep hidden or subdued. Uranus encourages you to break free from societal or self-imposed constraints and to value the parts of yourself that stand out.

The energies of the Moon and Uranus can blend smoothly today, making it easier to make positive changes without the turmoil that usually accompanies change and transformation. Emotionally, this can manifest as sudden insights or revelations that help you understand your true feelings about something or someone. Spiritually, it can be a time of awakening, where you feel a strong connection to your unique spiritual path or practices.

The influence of Uranus also reminds you of the beauty and importance of embracing your differences. It highlights the strength in diversity and the personal power that comes from owning what makes you ‘other’.

It’s also a good day to explore and value your uniqueness and for making changes that align more closely with your authentic self.

In your art journal, draw, paint or collage an image that represents an experience or trait that has always made you feel different but that you now appreciate and love.


Today the disseminating moon moves into the sign of Aquarius. It is also having a happy relationship with Neptune and Mars, a tense relationship with Venus and an intense relationship with Pluto.

Today, the moon having an intense relationship with Pluto reminds us that who you are can ripple out into the world around you.

It combines the Moon’s influence on our deepest emotions and inner life with Pluto’s power for profound change and rebirth.

Whenever the moon moves into the sign of Aquarius over the next 20 years or so, it will be drawing down to us this energy because Pluto stays in a sign for a very long time. Therefore, when the Moon and Pluto align in this particular sign, it suggests a powerful opportunity for your personal insights to bring about changes not just within yourself, but also in a way that can resonate outward to affect a larger group. For example, you might suddenly feel very passionate about a cause or realize something important about how you want to contribute to the world. It’s like getting a sudden burst of insight that makes you want to act and make things better not just for yourself but for your community as well.

Pluto demands that you shed old skins to embrace new ways of being that are more aligned with your deep truths.

As you are more aligned with your deeper truths, it naturally begins to influence the way you interact with the world. The changes you make can inspire others, contribute to group efforts, or simply add to the collective energy pushing for progress.

The moon and Pluto in Aquarius teach us that personal growth is not isolated. The insights and transformations that occur on a personal level can ripple out to effect change on a broader scale, especially in areas favored by Aquarius like technology, social justice, or community planning. This blend of the deeply personal and broadly societal is what makes the Moon and Pluto in Aquarius a powerful time for both introspection and impactful action.

In your art journal, draw, paint or collage an image that represents how you being yourself ripples out positive change in the world or your community.


Today the last quarter moon is in the sign of Aquarius. The moon is also having a happy relationship with Mercury and a tense relationship with Uranus. 

It’s also Beltane so HAPPY BELTANE!

In the Wheel of the Year, Beltane marks the midpoint between spring and summer. This celebration is all about fertility, fire, and abundance. It’s a time to welcome the increase in sunlight, warmth, and the blooming of nature. Traditionally, it involves lighting fires, dancing around maypoles, and various rituals intended to bring fertility and good fortune.

To celebrate Beltane in your art journal, you can incorporate themes of growth, warmth, and vitality. You might want to draw, paint, or collage vibrant spring flowers. Think about including red and pink hues, which are often associated with Beltane for their vibrancy and connection to the life force and the element of fire. Each flower can be infused with intentions for growth in different areas of your life.

Since fire is a key element of Beltane, representing the return of the light and warmth of summer, you could create a fire-themed page. Paint a bonfire or use warm colors like reds, oranges, and yellows to fill your page. As you work, think about what you want to “heat up” or accelerate in your life.

Beltane is a fertility festival, so incorporating symbols like eggs, seeds, or green leaves can be powerful. You might draw these items sprouting from the earth, symbolizing new beginnings and the potential for your projects and dreams to grow.

The maypole dance is a traditional part of Beltane, symbolizing the lengthening days. You could draw a maypole in your journal, with ribbons winding around it. Each ribbon could represent an aspect of your life that you hope to intertwine with joy and prosperity.

Write down personal rituals or goals that align with Beltane’s themes of fertility and growth. This might include steps to take toward personal projects or habits you want to develop. Decorate this list with symbols of Beltane, turning your goals into a beautiful and motivating art piece.

In your art journal, draw, paint or collage an image that celebrates Beltane.


The last quarter moon moves into the sign of Pisces. It is also having a happy relationship with Venus and a tense relationship with Jupiter and Uranus.

Pisces, a water sign, is known for its profound sensitivity, intuition, and connection to the unseen realms of emotion and spirituality. This energy is inherently calm and receptive, making it a time when we’re more open to the subtleties of our environment and the emotions and energies of those around us.

For highly sensitive people, this can feel like a double-edged sword. On one hand, it enhances your ability to empathize and connect deeply with others, tapping into a well of creativity and spiritual insight. On the other, it can lead to feeling overwhelmed by absorbing too much from your surroundings, whether it’s the mood of a crowd, the vibe of a place, or even the emotional states of the people you love.

The emotions and energy you unconsciously absorb affect your body and when you don’t process or release any of it, it can also be stored in your body.

Today is a good day to find creative ways in your art journal to filter and release the energies and emotions that don’t serve you or your body. This way you will preserve your emotional well-being while still embracing your natural empathy and intuition.

Here is an art journaling suggestion designed to help you cleanse unwanted energies and emotions.

Use water and watercolors to release and wash away.

Start by laying down colors that represent the emotions and energies you’ve absorbed. You probably won’t be conscious of everything you’ve absorbed so allow your intuition and creativity to guide you. Don’t focus on creating anything specific; let the colors flow and blend as they will.

Then, with a clean brush and clear water, go over the page, imagining the unwanted energies washing away, leaving you clean and refreshed.

If you prefer collage, create a collage that represents the energies or emotions you wish to release. Cut out images and words from magazines that resonate with what you’ve absorbed and want to let go of. As you arrange and glue them onto your journal page, think of it as collecting all these unwanted elements from your system and trapping them on the page. Once you’re done, you might even cover them with a paint layer, symbolically sealing them away from you.

In your art journal, draw, paint or collage a page that represents energy or emotions you’ve absorbed from others or the environment that you now what to release and let go.


The last quarter moon is in the sign of Pisces. It is also having an intense relationship with Saturn.

When the moon is in the sign of Pisces, it creates an atmosphere rich with intuition, creativity, and imagination. Pisces is a water sign, known for its deep emotional reservoirs, spiritual depth, and boundless imagination. This sign is associated with dreams, mysticism, and the unseen worlds, making the moon’s stay in Pisces a time when your intuitive and creative energies are heightened.

For highly sensitive people, especially those with creative dreams, this period can be particularly supportive. The energy of Pisces encourages you to tap into your innermost feelings and to trust your intuition. It’s a time where creative ideas flow more freely.

The moon in Pisces offers a gentle reminder to embrace your sensitivity as a strength, especially when you’re working on a creative project or using your creativity. Your sensitive nature supports you in delving into the depths of your imagination, exploring your dreams without restraint, and expressing your findings in whatever medium speaks to you. Whether it’s writing, painting, music, or another form of artistic expression, the emotional and spiritual properties of this lunar placement provide a fertile ground for creativity to blossom.

The moon in Pisces also encourages a kind of compassionate self-reflection that can be incredibly healing. It’s a time to be gentle with yourself, to allow your dreams and desires to surface without judgment, and to explore the possibilities they hold. The intuitive energy of Pisces under the moon’s influence also helps you to connect more deeply with your true desires and to find creative ways to bring them into the world.

Ultimately, the moon in Pisces invites you to dive into your imagination, to trust your intuition, and to allow your creativity to flow uninhibited.

In your art journal, draw, collage or paint an image that represents your imagination.


The balsamic moon moves into the sign of Aries. It is also a busy moon having a lot of relationships with other planets. It is having a happy relationship with Uranus, Jupiter and Pluto and an intense relationship with Mars and Neptune. 

Aries is ruled by the planet Mars so the moon is carrying a little of that planet’s energy as well.

Aries energy in its most helpful form supports you in setting healthy boundaries, in knowing who you really are and feeling connected to your inner power.

Aries is action, quick responses and impulses. It values action, leadership and assertiveness. When the moon is in the sign of Aries as it is today, it can bring abrupt energy that is blunt and harsh – maybe even sometimes aggressive but it also helps to light a spark in your spirit and connect you to your passion and enthusiasm.

For highly sensitive people, setting boundaries is crucial for protecting your energy and ensuring you have the space and tranquility needed to focus on your creative dreams. The moon’s energy in Aries offers a supportive push to speak your boundaries and follow through with them so that your precious time and energy is given to the people and things that matter most to you – including your creative dreams.

It’s a reminder that asserting yourself and claiming personal space is not only necessary but is a step towards fulfilling your creative potential. The moon in Aries is a good time to reassess how you allocate your time and energy, making sure you are not only accommodating others but also prioritizing your own needs and goals.

What does setting boundaries to protect and pursue your creative dreams look like?

What do you need to say and to whom do you need to say it to?

In your art journal, draw, paint or collage an image that represents protecting your creative dreams.


The balsamic moon is in the sign of Aries. It is also having an intense relationship with Mercury.

The balsamic or waning crescent phase of the moon, just before we plunge into the darkness of the New Moon, is a deeply spiritual time, ripe with opportunities for introspection and release.

Emotionally, the balsamic moon phase is like your spiritual guardian, whispering, “It’s okay to let go.” It’s not the time for launching new projects or making big decisions. Instead, it’s a time for tying up loose ends, letting go of what no longer serves you, and giving yourself permission to rest and recharge. The balsamic moon phase is a little like a detox for your soul.

Spiritually, this phase is your invitation to dive into your inner world and tend to what emotionally and spiritually needs tending to. It’s like a spiritual retreat, allowing you to explore your dreams, fears, and the stories you tell yourself. This energy encourages you to let go of old emotional baggage and release patterns that might be holding you back. It’s an opportunity to make peace with the past and create space for new beginnings.

Imagine you’re decluttering your emotional closet. What do you need to let go of? What emotional weight is dragging you down? In your art journal, create a page that represents the things you’re ready to release. It could be a collage of images or words, or even an abstract representation of the emotional baggage you’re letting go of.

In your art journal, draw, paint or collage an image that represents what you want to release before the new moon.

Have fun with your art journal and the moon this week.

with love,

Dana da Ponte
