Each Lunar Phase represents a Divine Spirit or Archetype. The Spirit of the Marcus Aurelius Moon is the Spirit of Emperor Marcus Aurelius, the greatest philosopher/emperor of Ancient Rome.
This Spirit embodies power which is wielded wisely and justly.
It is a Spirit which encourages tolerance and acceptance of ideas and customs which are strange at first glance. It is the Spirit of magnanimity and compassion.
Hadrian hand-selected Marcus as a boy to be one of his successors, and he turned out to be a noble heir, a man of judicious might and justice, a warrior and a poet, a man whose reign was called the last Golden Age of Rome.
On a spiritual/higher plane, the Moon in Taurus seeks inner peace through stability and contentment. The Taurus New Moon in May highlights Taurean qualities (determined, practical, devoted, grounded, dependable) and Second House themes (material security, values, self-worth).
Rituals and meditations carried out tonight are best suited for delving into pragmatic matters and looking for inner wisdom amidst the chaos of everyday life.
In oracular work, this lunar phase helps you to identify a wise guide (in this material world or in the spirit world) who is self-assured and confident and well-inclined towards you. This may not be a close friend, but he is someone you can trust for being fair and wise.
