When the Moon enters the zodiac sign of Taurus Moon, sensuality becomes key in daily life.
Under this beautiful Moon, life can feel deeply feminine, as the body and the senses come alive, and we crave pleasure, connection, and all things delicious! No one can deny the power of this Moon to put us back in touch with our most basic needs.
Food, security, warmth, company… when the Moon transits Taurus, these needs don’t just need meeting, they need drenching with an overflow of generosity and delight! One things for sure – the Moon in Taurus has to feel good!
But does the daily Moon sign really affect us?
Here at the Moon School we know it does. So let’s take a closer look at the meaning, symbolism, and real-life influence of the daily Moon in Taurus and how it can affect your emotions, behavior and even your romantic life and connections.
But first… what IS the transiting Moon, and why should you care what zodiac sign it’s in at all?
What does a Moon transit mean?
A Moon transit is when the Moon passes over a specific area of the sky, and its energy influences the astrological traits of the zodiac sign that it’s transiting. This can affect our emotions, moods, and behaviors, and can also provide opportunities for growth, healing, and transformation. This will all depend on the aspects and placements involved.
Although not a planet, as our closest (and fastest moving) celestial body, the Moon has a unique effect on life on Earth. The Moon spends between 1 and 4 days in a single zodiac sign. As she does, she receives and transmits a particular frequency of energy from each.
In astrology, the Moon influences our emotional needs and affects the way we react to the world.
She reveals who we are on the deepest levels of our being. So in many ways, the Moon is a key to our inner landscapes.
During any solar month, the transiting Sun sign represents the motivation and energy that moves us through life outwardly.
But the Moon has a more immediate yet subconscious effect on our lives. She symbolizes the deeper self, the self that exists beyond opposition to the ego. And in contrast to the Sun, she moves signs every few days.
Some people are highly attuned to the la Luna’s celestial shifts, while some rarely feel them at all (and this can vary from month to month, season to season, year to year).
But as a collective, the current Moon sign has a strong, but subtle influence on the energetic climate of our days. A collective horoscope of sorts.
So, if you feel her calling, it’s wise to keep track of her astrology…

What does a Taurus Moon transit feel like?
When the Moon is in Taurus, the energy feels stable, calm, and grounded. Under this transit, people are able to focus and may feel more determined than usual to work hard and complete tasks. There’s a practical, pragmatic energy in the air, and a genuine appreciation of the simple delights of our worldly existence.
Taurus is the sign that comes right after pioneering Aries. It’s the first earth sign in the wheel of the zodiac, and comes with a fixed modality.
This means that Taurus Moons bring a sustaining influence. They are devotional and dedicated, and encourage us to dive deep into the present moment.
A transiting Taurus Moon also brings energy that’s rich, grounded, and abundant. Here, the Moon is ‘exalted’ (hurrah!!) which means that her energy combines well with Taurus. Her influence on us, here on Earth is enhanced in this placement.
Under a Taurus Moon, Life feels good!
Today’s Taurus Moon transit and sensuality
For the most lunar-sensitive people among us, a Taurus Moon can be a truly beautiful transit that activates the physical senses, ie. your sensuality.
Sensuality is to let your life be guided by your sensory experience of the world…
Today Taurus Moon invites you to be present in each moment, making it easier to track all the intricate sensations of the body, allowing your physical form to be the exquisite instrument it was designed to be.
So many women live their lives from the head up.
We exist in our minds: thinking, planning, remembering, pondering, wondering, checking and double-checking, our lives and others, from a place of mental order.
I do this too – it’s unavoidable in the hectic, modern world we live in! Yet there is an ancient feminine force that moves through this lunar transit in Taurus. And this ancient feminine teaches us – no, she yearns for us – to drop our attention down to the body.
Because this is where the ancient feminine expresses – through the the body.
Taurus Moons fast-track us to the sensuality of our bodies
But for many people, sensuality isn’t something we’re used to…
Sensuality is a word – a distant concept, yet not something we truly experience. So used to “understanding” (it’s what we’re taught in schools, and how we are programmed to interact with the world) the sensuality of a Taurus Moon isn’t something you can “understand”. It’s not something that belongs in the mind.
As our Moon moves through this Taurean segment of the sky – the sign of fixed earth, no less – She reminds us that our bodies are extensions of Mother Earth.
We are blood and flesh and bone. Just as she is rivers and soil and rock.
For the few short days the Moon transits Taurus, she gives us permission to stop and feel.
You are being invited to release the grip of the logical, the rational, and the sense-making mind, and let the body take over.
3 ways to amplify the Taurus Moon’s sensuality
- Listen to the birdsong in the morning, not with only your ears. But to let the sound wash over your entire body, entering into all the pores on your skin as a balm.
- Bite into a segment of dark chocolate and feel its taste not only on the tip of your tongue but let it seep all the way down to your toes.
- Slip between fresh sheets on your bed and let every part of your body feel – the body beyond skin. How does it make your heart feel?
Taurus Moons expand embodied sensuality. Unapologetically.

Sensory pleasure: Taurus Moons magnetize indulgence

However, it’s super-important under the Moon in Taurus, to be mindful of any tendencies towards excess or overindulgence. The combination of Taurus’ stubbornness and this sign’s love of comfort means that during this moon phase, you may find it harder to resist temptation.

Whether you are a writer, artist, musician, or simply someone who enjoys a good DIY project, the Taurus Moon can be a great time to tap into your creative potential and bring your creative visions to life with greater ease.
Relationship conflict: The Taurus Moons’ stubborn streak
One potential challenge of the Taurus moon transit is the tendency towards stubbornness and possessiveness. Known for their fixed nature, Taurus Moons can make us more resistant to change or new ideas than usual.
This can be especially challenging in your interpersonal relationships. You may find you’re more set in your ways than usual, and less willing to compromise. This emotional approach may lead to conflicts with others, so be warned.
However, it’s important to remember that this stubbornness can also be a strength. There’s a fine line between this ‘negative’ aspect of Taurus, and loyalty and commitment. During this lunar transit you may also find you are more dedicated to your relationships and more willing to work through challenges.

Aligning with the bounteous quality of the Earth herself, a Taurus Moon brings an especially abundant kind of energy. If you’re a bit of a conscious manifestation fan, you may have noticed that when the Moon transits Taurus, manifestation gets easier, quicker, and more generous.
