The New Moon in Taurus happens once a year when the Sun is in the sign of Taurus. New Moons are always about beginnings, a time when things take root. A Taurus New Moon is all about ‘getting real’. My mum was a Taurus and let’s just say … she didn’t suffer fools gladly. This is not a time to build castles in the sand – it’s about making ‘real/stable’ things happen. For the gardeners and practitioners out there it’s a great time to venture out into the garden and plant seeds (even if you take this metaphorically).
So – time to set your new intentions …what’s the new seed you wish to plant in your life?
Taurus is all about nature, earth, and growing our own food – Taurus looks ahead and brings in a stable, long-term perspective on life.
I am sensing this is a time for those of us manifesting that self-sustainable home with the veggies, the fruit trees, or the goats, now is our time.
As we approach this powerful New Moon in Taurus (19th May, 2023) take note – this isn’t just any New Moon. We also have a gathering of six planets in Taurus! The Sun, Moon, Mercury, Uranus, the North Node, and Jupiter align, creating an intense concentration of Taurus energy.
The second half of May is going to be a powerful month of change which may explain why the Chariot card has come up time and time again in this house not just for my daughter and myself individually, but for the collective too.
Jupiter has moved into the sign of Taurus and will stay there until next year. This planet is all about expansion, growth, and success. Whatever is happening in your life is about to be MAGNIFIED LARGE – and then some. Conversely, that could mean things could literally ‘blow up’ so where possible focus on the things you wish to manifest in your life – things you actually want (to ensure the blow-ups are around good things if you catch my drift).
The square between Jupiter and Pluto means we are moving into a time where secrets are going to just explode to the foreground so watch the news people! A secret is going to be exposed and I am seeing this secret being plastered all over every TV screen and discussed in every newspaper column.
It’s important to rise above the ‘juicy’ salacious aspects of exposed secrets though, because this has to happen. A clearing of the way, the shining of the light into dark areas and hallowed halls. The breaking down of toxic cultures and environments where ‘everyone knows’ a secret but individuals are paralysed to do anything about it … because… that’s the way it’s always been.
With all this said, I am going to steer clear of all of that energy and harness instead, that ‘home’ and stability vibe. It’s time to manifest a new studio for Gaia’s Light to shine – and a new home for my daughter. We are both coming to the close of a Karmic cycle, with lots of cards on ‘completion’ over the last couple of weeks – so let’s see what areas we can expand upon in our lives.
Pay careful attention to what you are focussing on right now. Plant new seeds, set solid intentions – but make sure your goals and aspirations have solid foundations. Jupiter is about to enter like a freight train into your lives.
