On Tuesday May 11th at 16:29 (NST) a New Moon at 21º Taurus takes place which is positively supported by Neptune in Pisces and Pluto in Capricorn.
This New Moon in Taurus is all about gaining traction and witnessing progressive change especially in connection with an idea, a vision or a situation you have been thinking about for quite some time but didn’t seem to be able to move forward with it until recently. There is an echo of something (perhaps a few things) that were occurring last year at this time and you might even feel like you’ve come full circle. Taurus is associated with solidity and rooting down and the Moon is said to be exalted here because of Taurus’s fertile pastures offering stability, nourishment and a grounding influence for the Moon. Perhaps the openings are occurring in connection with the places you’ve felt the most stubborn or consistent about and it may even feel unsettling or foreign to find how easy it is to move in places where there was only resistance until now. Your ability to navigate these times (or anytime really) depends in part on how well you can find stability and consistency within yourself amidst changing circumstances.
You might be craving calm, peace, and security without being able to stop the Wheel of Fate from turning however. There are a lot of changes taking place and we have to keep adjusting our stance without being able to settle into one path or one direction. This is a time of opportunities and adaptability and these opportunities can present themselves if we keep an open mind. We are on the verge of Jupiter’s ingress in the sign of Pisces on May 13th, Eclipse season which starts on the 26th and Mercury stationing retrograde on the 29th. Venus which rule over the New Moon in Taurus is in Gemini and the co-presence of Uranus in the sign of Taurus augurs that instead of settling into comfort and finding safety in what feels familiar, we are being prompted to remain open, flexible, and adaptable because of too many uncertain factors and contrasting desires.
