The New Moon in Taurus will perfect on May 4th at 4:45 pm MST. When the Moon is in Taurus it’s in its sign of exaltation. This means that the Moon is very comfortable in Taurus. Think of it like that house guest who feels comfortable enough to wear your robe and eat all your food. If we couple that with the ruler Venus in Aries being ruled by Mars in Gemini and Mercury in Aries- this Taurus Moon is more energetic than a Taurus Moon usually would be. Add all of that to the New Moon phase and this is a buzzing time. Everyone is ready for change, chomping at the bit even. Out with the old and in with the new- that’s all good if you’ve done the hard work Saturn and the Nodes are demanding right now, but if you haven’t done the purging, there won’t be any room for anything new.
It’s time to look at what you want. What’s important to you and still brings you comfort may have changed when you weren’t looking. You may be feeling impatient for change and the impulse now is to go it on your own, but there’s a need to examine what you contribute versus what you take. In relationships, each individual should be able to stand on their own, but would rather not. Take a long look: do you have what you need to stand on your own? If not, decide what it would take to fix what needs fixing. The independence of Venus in Aries is talking through this New Moon, demanding you to stand up for yourself, make a plan to build your own resources -build your own value and build your self-worth. This new Moon is a time to take stock of all the assets available to us, and because it involves ALL of the personal planets, assets means everything at your disposal, heart, brains, ambitions and talents- not to mention the obvious material resources. Having all the planets participating means that if you don’t have the physical means needed to stand up for yourself, you have access to all the parts needed to build those means.
This is an empowering Moon demanding bravery and honesty. Wherever this lunation falls in your chart, this is a time to build resources, examine your values, revisit what you love and how you love and how you want to be loved. Be kind to yourself.
