Tuesday, MAY 11
The New Moon occurs in the sign of Taurus today at 3:00 PM EDT, making it an excellent time to commit to personal goals that express the positive energies of the sign of the Bull. It’s time to enjoy life’s simple and physical pleasures, as well as activities that bring us in touch with nature and with our bodies.
This New Moon encourages us to “stop and smell the roses” and become more aware of what makes us feel comfortable and secure. It’s an excellent cycle in which to re-evaluate our relationship to money and possessions. We’re discovering what truly satisfies and fulfills us. We may be building and developing the initiatives and innovations begun in the Aries cycle. With this potent Taurus energy, we have the chance to make significant changes in our lives.
This New Moon harmonizes with Neptune and Pluto, suggesting that our inspiration and determination support our efforts to begin fresh. While the squares to Saturn and Jupiter are wide, they’re relevant because the New Moon is closely square the Jupiter/Saturn midpoint. We can be dealing with the desire to grow and expand, but also with limits and rules, and these things may take up a lot of energy. We may need to watch for being too lax or controlling, working on getting to a good balance.
Also today, Mars forms a square to Chiron and a sextile to Uranus. We’re motivated to get out of a rut, innovate, or entertain new methods. We gravitate to new and unique ways of approaching the world around us. In the name of progress, we can be determined to let go of grudges or baggage, although it may not be straightforward to do so. Old emotional wounds may feel as if they’re wide open. There can be tension and pressure experienced now, as well as some irritability.
