NEW Moon in Taurus
3 May 2:51am EDT
Continuing to ground our core…
Moon transits Taurus
2 May, 1:58am EDT til 4 May at 1:09pm EDT
Once again, our Moon is in sync with the initiations of our Sun! A NEW Moon in Taurus brings forth deep, intuitive, and sensuous feelings as our Lunar Light takes a stance with The Bull.
Opportunity is knocking at the collective’s door at this time of the month when our emotions become anew. When our New Moon embarks in the practical and patient energies of Taurus -the sign that consciously aims for security- we are now ready to really take on an enduring and resourceful spirit. Earth is Taurus’s elemental influence, so look to this passage to allow feelings to take root, and “fix” into a grounding force.
Taurus energy must beware of dogged, materialistic, lethargic, and obstinate behaviors that may arise. When any possessive energies are around, it is easy to gravitate to unimaginative and reactionary tendencies. While a strong sense of values and patience marks any Taurus passage, the cultivation of enterprise, adaptability, and vision are equally wise to adhere to.
New Moon, 3 May, 2:51am EDT, 12 degrees Taurus
Be sure to check your Taurus House in your personal birth chart to see where a new energy is ideally meant to unfold. This is the area of life that requests an initiation in the next two weeks to follow. Seeds that you plant in this section of your Zodiac pie until the next Full Moon on 17 May are bound to reap a rich harvest further down the road.
Jupiter enters Taurus 4 June
What is even more Zodiac “good news” is right after our next New Moon in June within Gemini, jovial Jupiter enters Taurus for the next year. Certainly the new beginnings you see from 3 May’s initiations will be furthered by The Optimist as he journeys with The Bull.
Mercury’s Shadow remains through 8 May
Our recent Mercury Retrograde passage in Aries is still seeing plenty of re-workings unfold in this area of the life that may have seen their upsets over 30 March – 23 April. As the Moon will gather once again in the light, the Universe is granted the optimal energy to continue to smooth out any wrinkles Mercury may have caused under the Shadow Period. 30 March, our Messenger Mercury began his “backwards” phase at 24 degrees Aries. On 8 May, he crosses back over this very same degree moving forward once more, as the Shadow concludes.
