New Moon in Taurus, 18 May
Where Will You Feel Initiations & Fresh Starts?
What Are Your Feelings? Know Your Point of Attraction
The Law of Attraction promises that our feelings guide our thinking as we create our lives. Lunar energy is astrologically in charge of how our human emotions play out down here below. Each month, a New Moon marks a waxing cycle promoting start up energy while a Full Moon unfolds a waning cycle allowing completion, reflection and release. LunarOScopes capture this natural rhythm with specific forecasting advice, timing when your Sun Sign naturally benefits from initiation or letting go.
Being our Moon changes Zodiac Signs every couple of days, so too do our feelings down here below mirror these precise patterns that ultimately change our moods and sensations. Keeping our emotions healthy allows us to properly manifest our individual lives, as these cycles flavor us all uniquely.
New Moons start Waxing Phases, Let’s Begin
This two-week cycle normally favors actions involving anything new, as increasing energy moves forward throughout one half of your Zodiac Pie until the next Full Moon in Sagittarius 02 June. However, the second Mercury Retrograde of 2015 begins later on the same day as our Taurus New Moon. Astrological law declares to be extremely careful with anything your free will decides to initiate for long-term success under this cycle that ultimately favors reflection and review instead.
Moon Void of Courses (Moon VOC) Time Out Periods
Even under a Waxing Phase, you will not wish to plan, plant, purchase, or initiate anything of importance is when the Moon is Void of Course. It is even more critical during the current Mercury Retrograde cycle as well, to be well aware of when it is Moon VOC. This astrological passage occurs every couple days during our business and workweek, marking the critical request to take up in more reflective acts in solitude and engaging in quieter soul activities. Check in weekly with Empowerscopes on Empower Radio for the calendar’s most current Moon Void of Course times.
Reminder: Mercury Retrograde 18 May to 11 June
The request to review, reflect and redo since 11 February’s actions.
Mercury Retrograde passages specifically favor engaging in reflection, recharge and renew over its’ 3 week passage. To the best of our free wills’ ability, careful planning must be met so we do not start new things that we wish to have long-term success with. Mercury guides all forms of communication, thinking, mentality, movement & travel of any kind. During a Retrograde cycle, his backtracking through the Zodiac creates natural interruptions, rerouting and flux concerning these areas and within our schedules. Having our back-up plans ready to go is recommended as we anticipate change and honor the value of this natural offering to rest, reconnect, review and release.
Approach Begins: 04 May | Shadow Ends: 27 June

Moon Void of Course: 12:13am to 5:27am EDT 18 May, Moon enters Gemini
26 degree point lunation’s are always ones that should be carefully monitored, examining our associations with ultimate responsibility in mind concerning the new beginnings within our life. This month absolutely requires our mindfulness of ‘Partnerships’ that the 26’s Chaldean Karmic Mystery proclaims:
“This compound number vibrates, in a strange way, to a unique kind of power, based on compassion and unselfishness, with the ability to help others, but not always the Self. 26 is full of contradictions. It warns of dangers, disappointments, and failure, especially regarding the ambitions, brought about through bad advice, association with others, and unhappy partnerships of all kinds.” ~Linda Goodman’s Star Signs
Two important reasons why this Taurus New Moon asks for extra awareness concerning what’s new is, that one: as it starts, it simultaneously begins a reflective Moon Void of Course passage. Two, Mercury is on the station to go Retrograde by the evening in the neighboring sign of Gemini. As normal astrological advice dictates, it is wise to be cautious about decisions and initiations for long-term success under Mercury Retrograde, despite a New Moon kicking off another waxing phase.
We’ll all be able to identify new energy speaking from our Taurus slice of life, yet this energy will be extremely slow moving in the ways it shows us it is making progress in our favor. Aside from the 26’s energy naturally asking for patience and careful considerations, this New Moon is also in a loose opposition to the planet of regulation and often times of restriction himself. Saturn Retrograde in Sagittarius enhances the larger picture pointing to this waxing phase being one where, if you don’t need to be in a rush to get things properly done, you’ll be far better off taking your time. Learn from the experiences surrounding you so you can embrace true growth. Certainly, take your time when you can in our busy bee world to stop, smell, and absolutely admire the Spring flowers for these next couple weeks.
