New Moon in Taurus on May 17th @ 9:13 PM
Mercury goes Rx May 18th-June 11th. ( please read my May overview for more details on the RX)
So, our usual strategy of working with this New Moon energy needs to be tweaked just a bit this month!
First….Venus IS the natural ruler of Taurus…. so, like Venus….Taurus loves all the finer things in life!
Beautiful sumptuous home and surroundings, possessions, and material wealth. Also, sensuality is of great importance! Patience, perseverance, and digging in….( like the bull) are also qualities of this strong Earth energy!
We have a beautiful trine between Neptune ( the higher octave of Venus) and Venus at this New Moon….encouraging us to look at what we love on the physical plane, but also, Spiritually. What is really important….. are we receiving as much as we are giving? Are we in service or servitude? What is our soul yearning for? Are we accumulating just to have stuff…or can we let go and circulate things we no longer need?
With Mercury turning retrograde on the 18th….our Best Practice is to review, renew, and rethink all the qualities that are really important to our heart and soul. Deep Love, Joy, Beauty, Balance and Harmony are being called forward. Plant your seeds of intention with your ceremony….and allow them to sprout in divine perfect universal time!
Just as a reminder, New Moons occur every 29 1/2 days when the moon aligns with the sun in each of the 12 signs. It is a natural time of new beginnings. The ancients used the timing of the moon as a way of life, from planting to sowing to celebrating. New Moons are about starting anew. Be clear, set your intentions, then let go and expect them to come true!
