NEW MOON in TAURUS, MAY 17/18,2015- Momentary madness may bring a turning point
ALGOLAs I sat and pondered writing the new moon post today I got sidetracked and watched Field of Dreams on MLB Network. I kept getting up on commercials and doing some odds and ends and would then race back to continue watching every time it was back on. I wondered why it was pulling me so strongly to watch this movie today. I have seen it a few times through the years. (No, to answer those who know me, it wasn’t because of Kevin Costner). The movie was a message and then I knew what it was. Message is for later in the post.
Many of those with whom I have come into contact lately have been stressing on some level. It was unnoticeable at first but since I took a short break, it is more blatant than ever now. Lots of issues coming up for many of you who are running around doing great service yet taking little time for yourselves. That is part of the problem which many of you face.
The world is still spinning and there are odd things going on, as usual. Did you see the Amtrak train which derailed was hit by an object and had its windshield shattered? And the engineer says he remembers nothing of the last few minutes. Watch what comes out of this!! He did have a cut that was stitched up on his head. Oh, utter disbelief from me that they gave the death penalty to Tsarnaev in Boston. The demon star must have been right in the courthouse. One day the truth will be unveiled. You keep watching dear ones. And why are police getting riot gear in Cleveland?
As the New Moon in Taurus (Sun in Taurus) arrives May 17/18, 2015 it may bring unusual energy and some turmoil. I can feel it already. The New Moon is in 26 degrees 56’ and it shows up at 9:13pm PDT on May 17; 12:13am EDT on May 18 and 4:13am GMT (May 18). It is conjunct the fixed star Algol/Medusa’s head. Oh, joy! It also conjuncts Mars in Gemini which itself is opposing Saturn in Sagittarius. And this means what? The basis of the New Moon in Taurus reflects the material part of your life and what you value. It also emphasizes the five senses and how it relates to you. The ruler of this New Moon is Venus which is currently in Cancer and is trine (good) to Neptune in Pisces. A saving grace, I think. Since Venus/Taurus is about the five senses and Neptune is about the sixth sense (higher understanding) then maybe you will take advantage of an opportunity that may present itself to you which will help to open your heart and mind. Then again, you may miss it because you have a brief interval of momentary madness from Algol.
This is the time to get out of your mind because your heart and senses are going to tug on you until you do. If fear exists within then Algol will roadblock your discoveries and insights. So, what is this Algol star doing here anyway? Algol/Medusa’s head is taking you into the deep shadows which many of you wish to avoid. Saturn is also helping you to address the shadow now. The snakes of Medusa’s head are about deep wisdom. Don’t you choose that already? Choosing to ignore addressing the shadow and also allowing the heart and senses to lead your way will find you still in the same place you have been for eons. Wouldn’t it be good to plunge into that darkness and let the old ways release so that turning point (the message of Algol and the New Moon) come about? The new direction is waiting for you. Are you willing to let go the fear and move on it? The next few weeks will be difficult for some of you who refuse to face the fear that you repress. It is really the fear of the new energy that is sitting right in front of you. If you live with fear then you create more fear on and on.
One thing that is important for those who consume alcohol. This New Moon in Taurus with Algol present will bring about negatives if you drink too much. Algol is about alcohol addiction also. If you overindulge you may get ornery and go ballistic because that pain is trying to surface and you just won’t let it. Clear out the pain once and for all. Find a way for your own benefit.
The Taurus New Moon affects more intensely those with planets around 26 degrees of Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius including the first few degrees of Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces. Just watch for some turmoil in place you least expect. Of course, if you know your chart houses you can see immediately where that New Moon will affect you.
This New Moon in Taurus also gives you a time of organizing, focusing and making your list of goals for down the road. Since Mercury is going retrograde on May 18, my suggestion is to make the intentions and then you may find you choose to revise, rework and revisit your initial thoughts. Remember it is about heart and senses this time around. Give your mind a rest although it is really thinking when it is in Gemini. So there seems to be a paradox present. Just watch your thoughts more carefully.
Some other aspects taking place are Uranus in Aries at 18 degrees Aries influencing those who have planets around this degree including those with planets in Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn. Also, Pluto is currently at 15 degrees of Capricorn which influence those same signs. Unexpected happenings occur and major transformation with any planet being aspected by Pluto. Venus is in Cancer opposing Pluto and squaring Uranus. Some relationship issues may come up but you can prepare a bit since they appear a few days after the New Moon in Taurus.
Oh, yes, I go back to the Field of Dreams movie. It gave me insights as to how complicated life has become if you live in fear. Everyone kept telling him he was crazy (thoughts of the mind) and he heard the voices which were giving him an opportunity to do something for others and give him a new direction. Life isn’t about other’s opinions, fears or otherwise. It is about you taking the bull (Taurus) by the horns and doing what you came to do no matter what the world says. But it has to be done in a noble manner and keep it authentic. Also to go with that, the Sabian Symbol for New Moon and to me says that in the movie he was down on his luck and no one was there to really support his dream. It didn’t matter since he battled the odds and he needed no one else to validate his worth.
Dear ones do have a happy next couple of weeks until the Full Moon. The New Moon gives you a chance to get things ready and the next new moon in June will give you the go-ahead to put it into action. Be well. Until again. Lots of love and joy. Jan
