Taurus (New Moon) is associated with practical matters, the body and money and Scorpio (Full Moon) is associated with elimination and transformation, so this is a good month to consider a detox (i.e. body, practical, financial habits) and to look at what you can change to ensure you move through the rest of the year in greater health – both physically and financially!
Remember to check where the Lunar energy falls in your chart – see below for more on this – , as that will give more information; including the area of your life being affected.
May’s New Moon falls in the sign of Taurus bringing with it a beautiful Earthy energy, which is further enhanced by a harmonious aspect to Saturn.
This can be a productive month when you’ll have the self-discipline and persistence to work on what’s required, but with Pluto bringing a touch of intensity, watch for power struggles.
Pluto will square (challenging aspect) both Venus and Mercury (currently placed in Aries) indicating that impatience or control issues could arise; perhaps some frustration around desiring to get through things quicker than is happening…
… and you may have a need to clear some anger this month.
Use the added focus that Pluto brings to push through and tackle things in a slow and methodical manner – Taurus energy likes slow and steady!
If delays arise, Mars’ placement in Gemini can be good for flexibility and with a Jupiter/Mars contact you may feel like you have lots on your plate, so shifting to another task rather than allowing yourself to get stuck may help you to feel you’re progressing.
This is a month to cultivate patience and you’ll receive a helping hand when Mercury moves into Taurus on the 7th helping you to think things through in a thorough and methodical way.
Just watch for a hint of stubbornness!
You’ll likely to be gifted insight into what’s needing transformation as we head towards the Full Moon.
The desire for space and the honouring of your individuality may become important, as could wanting to escape the ‘daily grind’, as Venus heads into Taurus and closer to Uranus on the 15th.
What are your feelings about your relationships or your desires awakening you to?
If relationship angst has arisen, Mars’ move into Cancer on the 16th asks that you proceed with compassion but beware of defensiveness and the T Square between the Sun, Moon and the Black Moon is a reminder of the interconnectedness of life and the need to honour your spiritual and emotional needs.
Try to see what’s arisen from both sides and find a mutually beneficial way to work through the situation.
Chiron in Aries squares Mars (Aries’ ruler) in the Full Moon chart, which could indicate fear arising around self-assertion and with anger.
Be open to insight and healing.
Mercury and the Sun will move to Gemini on the 21st forming a conjunction and sparking off an inquisitive and chatty 4 weeks.
If there’s something you’ve been wanting to study or research, it may call to you now and your mind is likely to be clearer.
You’re likely to feel outgoing, friendly, social and confident in expressing yourself from now until mid-June, but you may also have a tendency to bias.
