New Moon in Taurus, May 6, 2016-Which direction shows up?
And the New Moon has arrived. What goodies will it bring you? Well, at the present time the craziness of election year gets even more so. Is there a revolution coming? Or is there something else going on? Also, the Belgium population has been given iodine pills in case of a dirty bomb attack. Two nuclear plants are leaking –one in Florida and one at Indian Point in New York. And the media is worried about what bathrooms you need to use. Wake up! Everything and anything is going on right now. And slowing down is the word of the next weeks. Five planets are retrograde and if you haven’t noticed yet, I am sure somewhere in your life you will soon feel it. Mercury just went retrograde last week. And Pluto, Saturn and Mars are going backwards for a few months. Jupiter goes into forward motion on the 10th of May. Yay! This brings us a time of looking in the rear view mirror so we can move forward as you clear out and leftover patterns, thoughts, habits and junk that no longer serves your purpose.
And the New Moon in Taurus arrived today on May 6, 2016 at 3:29pm EDT, 12:29 PDT and 7:29pm GMT in 16 degrees 41’. It is a Supermoon. Sun is also in Taurus at same degree. As I spoke about on my radio show last week Taurus is about the material world and your own resources along with self-worth. It is also about the five senses. Taurus loves to use them all as in touch, taste, sight, hearing, and smell. If you start listening to your body and your heart you will know what your soul truly needs to flourish in the coming days. I have followed Louise Hay for years now and if you correlate what she has said to what your body is saying to you…then your answer appears. Did you ever think that maybe that sinus issue is saying that something or someone is irritating you? Or what do you think about your back pain? Could it be someone is on your back or maybe the lower back pain is telling you that you are concerned about money? Or even that sore throat may say to you that you are failing to express yourself regarding a particular issue. If you start paying attention to your body and your heart you may change your life for the better. And this New Moon would be the perfect time to begin the journey to come from the heart and move yourself in a new direction and even do some emotional clean-up work.
Taurus is about your values. What do you value the most? Try making a list or create some kind of mandala with your choice words for what is important to you. It takes the energy that you have been using to light that Aries fire and use it in more material ways. But Taurus New Moon isn’t just about the material world. It is about your self-worth and sensuality. It is about Mother Earth and doing things that help her. It is a time to trust your hunches as you move toward a better life. This Taurus New Moon is about looking at reevaluating what really makes you happy. It forms a trine with Jupiter and the Virgo North Node and also with Pluto in Capricorn, as well as a wide sextile with Neptune in Pisces. This suggests many channels for expressing ourselves. If you haven’t been doing so, time to step up to the plate and say what’s on your mind.
Jupiter is definitely about expansion. And since it turns direct from its retrograde motion in the next few days (as mentioned above) it is a time to clear out any leftover perceptions of the world or others around you. Have you done that?
On May 9th Mercury is exactly conjunct the Sun and Moon in Taurus. More deliberate communication is going on in the days preceding and until June 12. Of course, remember also that Mercury in Taurus is retrograde until May 22. How has the Mercury retrograde madness affected you? Down the road I may share the crazy effects but now I will let it be. This is a time for tried and true thinking rather than new views since Mercury is in Taurus. The best thing with retrograde Mercury is to reorganize and reflect. If you are clear in all your communication and writings you will find this a beneficial time.
New Moon in Taurus is trine Pluto in Capricorn is about a few things. One may be an obsession with taboo topics. It can indicate a natural inclination to psychology. But some may use it to manipulate. If you are trying to market a product you may find this aspect beneficial. Pluto is trine the Sun in Taurus also. With Pluto involved you are looking to research every possible aspect of turning darkness into a creative project.
This New Moon is also so sensuous that you may just get that massage which you keep putting off. It is a great time for healing hands. If you do gardening there is no better time. It is also a good time to throw a party or do some business dealing.
Those most intensely affected are Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius 13 – 21 degrees. That would indicate birthdays May 3-May 12; August 3-12; November 3-12 and February 3-12.
A few tidbits for the Sun signs/Rising signs:
Aries-Where are you heading? It is wiser to stay your course at this time. Be more efficient with your resources as to where you are spending.
Taurus-Have you decided on a new direction? Whatever the decision you make you need to stick to it totally for the successful outcome to appear.
Gemini-Watch where you are headed at this time! If you are unsure of exactly what you choose. Then please do nothing than regret later.
Cancer-New Moon in 11th house is talking about your long-term goals and saying to be quite bold in how you think right now. Take time to plan.
Leo-Right now it is better to implement some plan on your path then to just sit around wishing for it to happen. Success will come if you complete the project.
Virgo- Are you thinking about going back to school to further your education? Or you may just decide to take a trip that is more in line with education.
Libra- Are you looking to form a deep alliance with someone? It may be fortunate for
you to do so. Just don’t give everything up.
Scorpio- You can entertain the thoughts of a supportive relationship as long as you set aside those fears that keep popping up. Be vulnerable already.
Sagittarius-You want the new project to begin but only if it meets your conditions. New Moon in 6th house says to keep it simple in whatever you do.
Capricorn- You may want to change how you approach the plan but keep the goal in mind. It is to create but don’t go rushing off impulsively.
Aquarius- Do you feel emotionally safe? If so build on something that is already there.
Stay in a stable mode for the time being.
Pisces- This new moon is about the simple truth in the communication house. Be in the real word right now. Imagination comes back.
Thank you for reading. Share if you will. Full Moon in Sagittarius comes in 2 weeks. I will be back on the SGN Going Beyond Astrology radio show on May 24. Have a happy Mother’s Day to all those wonderful ladies out there. Stay tuned. Until again. Love, Jan
