On May 19th at 8:53 AM PDT we have the New Moon in the sign of Taurus. With the Sun and Moon sharing the degree of 28 Taurus 25 minutes, it is time to plant the seeds of what is to come. Not only in the garden, but in your life’s path.
Let us look at what kind of goals to work on while these energies are available. The New Moon in Taurus is a good time to set our intentions on all things Taurus rules; satisfaction and gratification, life’s simple and physical pleasures, activities that bring us in touch with nature and with our bodies. It’s time to set our sites on being comfortable and secure with our finances, and having our needs met. This Fixed Earth sign is determined to succeed in whatever motivates it, typically Earth related endeavors.
This combination encourages a patient and steadfast approach, one capable of tremendous devotion, dedication, endurance, and constancy. The ability to follow through and stick with things is one of the greatest gifts Taurus brings us. Once your course is set, you can pursue it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway you from your purpose.
We also have a stellium in Taurus, including the Sun and Moon, Uranus at 19 degrees Taurus, Mercury at 6 degrees Taurus, the North Node of the Moon at 2 degrees Taurus, and Jupiter at 0 degrees Taurus! This strong combination of planets and luminaries pushes the agenda this New Moon presents. From May 16, 2023 through May 25, 2024, the planet Jupiter returns to Taurus for a productive year of new beginnings.
This New Moon sextiles Mars and Neptune, and trines Pluto, urging us to seek innovation, motivation, and the will power to reinforce our efforts to begin fresh. With this potent Taurus energy, we have the chance to make important changes in our lives. It’s time to make some solid and realistic plans and to set the stage for reaping the rewards from our new beginnings, as little or big as they may be. The seeds planted on this New Moon will culminate when the Moon is full in Taurus; October 28th, 2023.
A wonderful way to celebrate this New Moon is going outdoors, making a beautiful altar with flowers, sweets and delicious food, crystals, candles, and special objects you may have. I used to love to go to my favorite beach and create a circle of rocks. Then I would divide it into 4 parts, the South, West, North and East. I would enter from the South, the child, considering my life and what it has brought me, and what I’ve created. I would continue to the West, the teenager, the North, the Mother, and the East, the wise one. This review is accompanied with prayers and epifanes of who I am now. Then, once I was ready, I would exit through the East, feeling renewed and enlightened.
So, dream big and follow through. You are supported by the planets and luminaries to strike it in a massive way! Use this knowledge to your advantage, and be brave. We all need to step up our game this New Moon, and move from lack to abundance!
