It is now a dark sky, double Taurus…this happens once a year, and is so worthy of our attention.


Okay, Astrology 101: in honor of true Taurus form, I will make this simple…

Think Winnie the Pooh. Remember him, and his big tummy? He ate so much honey, he couldn’t get through the door to go see Piglet. He got stuck. Winnie was a Taurus (I made that up); he had a bad case of that sweet-tooth thing.

Now, simple image again: call up a visual of Buddha. He, too, had a big tummy; however, he was a recorded Taurus, born under Vesak: the full moon of May.

His story goes like this: he was depressed as he realized the state of this reality. He suffered deeply for the inequality. He got stuck in the pain body. He found this world utterly unfair. He became despondent. (This is so Taurus—they  can go way down when they are upset and just get stuck there.)

Consumed by despair, he was eventually inspired by a woman (the Green Tara whom they forget to tell you about) to use all his will—Taurus has A LOT of will—to solve the timeless dilemma of how pain lives in this world.

He had been wealthy all his life, brought up in a compound of privilege, so he never knew what it was really like on this Earth, until one day when he left his home and found how others suffered miserably, for no other reason than it was their lot in life—their fate. This truth was so very painful to a sensitive compassionate soul like Buddha; he fell quiet.

The only relief he could find was silence.

Welcome to the New Moon in Taurus.

Shhh, it’s time to be quiet.

This became his jumping off point. He sat in the quiet until he reached enlightenment. His teachings were plentiful. Ultimately, let me make it simple: he taught us that all suffering comes from attachment.

STILLNESS. He taught stillness, deep breaths, quiet is the answer. Let go.

Okay, back to April 2020—I would be dishonorable to not say this time on Earth is filled with suffering at every level. That the stars are not in our favor.

Welcome, squares in every direction.

I don’t want to dwell on the details…you know, we all know—that little eensy-weensy-tiny germ has dropped us all to our knees. Perfect posture for this new moon.

Down, quiet, alone, humbled. I am humbled. I just want to give you my Buddha mind. Sit with me. I have nothing more to say but I love you.

I am grateful for your presence on my mailing list.

I pray for all of us to find the comfort of the Buddha mind that knows nothing.

We must take this dark sky as a chance to say: I am learning the wisdom in letting go.

And I trust. He taught us to trust the quiet.

Meet you there,

P.S. This month of Taurus says slow down. It’s okay to be bored. It’s okay to be scared. It’s all okay.

I promise, this too shall pass. My prayer is we all slow down willingly, get through this and truly learn our lessons.

    Wow. For some reason I got goose bumps and and welled up a bit after reading this. I have Chiron 13 degrees retrograde in Taurus 9th house natally. I think Uranus is making a long transit through my 9th house and Taurus and now sun and moon are visiting. Maybe that’s why I FELT this. I dunno. At any rate, thanks for sending this out. Good feels.

  • Brilliant as usual Debra!

  •' Kathryn says:

    I’ve been in the progressed Moon of Taurus for almost 2 1/2 yrs. I’ve learned to slow down because my body forced me to & I did a lot of transforming. But now I am getting the feeling that I want to start to go, go, go & put all that learning into use & manifestation.

  •' Mary Walsh says:

    Thank you. I’m in stillness.

  •' Eva says:

    Thank you so much!

  • Thank you Debra! Today is my Birthday… Pisces moon and venus, virgo rising.. I haven’t started the inner view.. but will today. After I eat to my heart’s desire and play a bit with my horses! Looking forward to going deep within! I would love to talk with you about how I could use astrology in my programs, possibly combining it with the healing power of horses and connecting with each other and the earth to heal love and grow! Weather or not we can chat, Watch for me to sign up for level 2 or a scholarship for level 2 in the near future. I am looking for a mentor… for my business… a nonprofit.

  •' Swan says:

    Thank you Debra. I just want to say that I am with you, in that deep quiet place. I have always been there. And now I am so very grateful that other are coming to share. I love this. For me, silence it’s very natural.??? thank you

  •' Kelly Jurgensen says:

    What a good one, Deborah. I was just thinking yesterday of Siddartha and reading that book as a kid — I read anything and everything, whether I understood it at the time, or not (or never!) — and that’s where the thought went…and ended. So reading this today then?! Fun! Big sigh. Thank you so very very much and I’m delighted, often humbled, being on your mailing list. Respect! Admiration! Lotsa love 2.

  •' Deborah Hunter says:

    Beautiful! Thank you. I am a Taurean woman about to be 55 on the 27th April in New Zealand. I will light the Brazier and have treats of course. Look
    Forward to the peace of it!

    Best wishes

    Such a nice read & wholesome to compound the wisdom of The Buddha with that of The Cosmos.
    Silence is true, I believe I have been able to intuitively perceive the “themes” of the lunar cycles accurately without the ‘knowing’ (in intellectual knowledge) the corresponding theme- .. how interesting.

    Thank you


  •' Linda Dian Laterowicz says:

    Yes, indeed! Learning to let go of my pre-covid-19 identity. Shhhh… Working on accepting.

  •' Van says:

    Thank you for this. I am learning the wisdom in letting go. I am scared yet I am not scared which can be a wee bit scary…

  •' Vickie (Seears) Hartland says:

    One needs to remember that “suffering” in its original meaning was simply- a journey , to go through, a pilgrimage. The Runes say:- Be careful not to suffer over suffering ??

  •' Donna Calvanese says:

    This is a beautiful perception of the Taurus new moon and the present times. Thank you so much as I am a Gemini who was feeling all that restlessness and anxiety at times and being pulled in many directions. I am a home health aide and single mom of a teen. I spend my days traveling on trains and buses ( I don’t know how to drive) to patients in places I don’t know. My only desire is to help them and make their days brighter. I feel I am doing God’s will as well as getting a paycheck. I love all your forecasts.

    Thank you,


  •' Kate Daniel says:

  •' Shirlene Thatch says:

    Wow, this was really beautiful . . . and very helpful. Thank you so much.

  •' Teresa Tinder says:

    Thank you for giving me another sign from the universe that my source and I are connected. Let go.. I feel it’s the hardest one to do. But I definitely feel this.. I have asked for time to go inward and stop the talking for just a bit. Maybe it would help me clean my words and help me to be more of a listener again. I’ve lost that part of me through the turmoil of my life. My life is wonderful now but years ago I didn’t see it that way. Breathe, take time enjoying our planet and basking in the beauty that all the beasts are happy and the earth is healing. I hope or wish that we can see just what really is important. While we can’t get our hair done and all the other things we define as being important that has been depleting our world, I hope people see this fact. ?

  •' Fran E says:

    I love this. Thank you 🙂

  •' Andrew Wilson says:

    Debra, I just adore you. From the moment I saw you on Astrology Answers Daily Horoscope that I finally found an astrologer I could fallow. I instantly connected and i have not stopped listening to your wisdom. You’ve made me a better person. I’m so truly grateful. Earth Angel’s are real. Thank you.
    Your friend Andrew Wilson.
