New Moon in Taurus – May 13, ’10 9:04 pm ET
On Thurs, May 13th we have a New Moon in the earthy, sensual, fertile sign of Taurus.
The New Moon is the time for new beginnings – to take action directed toward what you want to increase, create or call into your life.
Taurus is a fixed Earth sign – stable with deep roots, so take this opportunity to ground yourself and decide what you want to create from this place. We are in the midst of changing energies that will only get more lively as we go along, so it is immensely helpful to have a clear vision of where you’re going and what you want to create.
Taurus rules values – what your core values are and how you value yourself, so do a check-in. Do you honor yourself and does the way you treat yourself reflect that? If not, what changes can you make to receive better care?
Taurus rules money and financial security, so this is a good time to review financial issues and your consciousness regarding money, prosperity and abundance. If you are overspending, trying to fill a void by acquiring more, living with a belief in lack or fear regarding money, this is the time to take action to rectify your false/negative beliefs that manifest as money issues.
Are you a good receiver? Can you accept compliments joyfully without deflecting or complimenting the other person back? Do you ask for help? Are you uncomfortable if someone makes a fuss over you? If the answer is “yes” to any of these questions, then receiving is a spiritual practice for you.
You can’t receive money or love if you can’t receive!
Watch yourself and notice if you push things away, materially or energetically, because of your discomfort with receiving. If so, practice allowing gifts in, whether they’re compliments, presents, assistance or small gestures.
Taurus loves physical comfort, good food, it honors the body, sensuality and the earth, so you may want to indulge yourself with a massage, have a fabulous meal, lounge around in bed in the morning (on the good sheets!), take a luxurious bath, get fresh flowers, walk barefoot in the grass or on the beach, or just slow down and relax – this earthy sign is very patient and doesn’t like to rush for any reason.
Next week Saturn opposes Uranus exactly, which indicates the push/pull, old vs. new, change vs. security dynamic. Where you experience this in your life depends on which houses Uranus and Saturn are moving through in your chart, but I’m sure you are feeling it! If you are in a rut it will feel intolerable now and you need to take steps to shift old, stale structures.
At the end of the month Mercury and Mars will both finally be in new territory, having moved beyond their retrograde paths. There’s tremendous energy building behind the scenes that will reveal itself as we move through the second half of May. Can you feel that something is coming?
We are in the midst of profound changes so stay as grounded and conscious as possible. Get support to gain clarity when you forget the truth of who you are, because that is when you are not in your power. If that happens, don’t judge your process as good or bad, instead, focus on what you value. What is important to you? What can you do to create or increase that?
Know that you likely won’t manifest the full thrust of the energies until June when there will be major simultaneous energetic shifts/releases and we will be propelled forward in our creations. Choose wisely, thoughtfully, and remember that you can always make new choices when something no longer resonates with you.
When it comes to your life – you create it ALL! Step into your power!
