The New Moon in Taurus, May 4, 2019


The New Moon in Taurus, May 4, 2019

Every New Moon represents the end and the beginning of a Moon cycle.

The New Moon is always a magical moment of birth, an energetic gateway to a new beginning, a new chapter in our lives.

On May 4, 2019, the Sun and Moon come together to form the New Moon at 14º11 in Taurus.

Sensual and financial Taurus is connected to Venus.
Venus is about inner peace, commitments, relationships, partnerships, contracts and diplomacy, beauty, the world of arts and our value pattern.
Taurus is also connected with the earth, to nature, the world economy and with everything that offers stability, safety and security, possessions, money. The solid ground under our feet, both internally and externally.

The New Moon forms an inconjunction with the asteroid Ceres. Ceres symbolizes unconditional love, the relationship between parents and children, dedication, connection, divorce, loss and sorrow. Ceres is the goddess of Agriculture, productivity, nutrition, care and self-worth.
This difficult connection strives for perfection and beauty. The restless and craving search for perfection can lead to exaggerated and cross-border behavior to fill the great dark void.

The New Moon is conjunct Uranus in Taurus and the fixed stars Menkar and Almach.
This strong energy flow brings uranic grounded energy of unexpected developments and a new chance to implement changes.
There may be startling news or a sudden innovative breakthrough in the fields of economics, sports, science and the world of arts.

Retrograde Saturn is conjunct the South Node in Capricorn, our collective memory.
This connection shows the need to let go and what is over and done with.

However, Taurus can be very inflexible and resistant to change and letting go.
This energy of intransigence, selfishness and greed is reinforced by the opposition of Mars in Gemini and retrograde Jupiter in Sagittarius. However, the sextile with the receptive and idealistic Neptune in Pisces, turns this negative energy into inspiration, care, strength and courage to bring out the best out of life.

The New Moon in Taurus is about letting go of what is unnecessary and appreciating on what really matters.

This New Moon requires us to work on our psyche before we make a new connection, both business and private.
The inner world is reflected in the external world.
If you don't love yourself, you can't love someone else.

Feel at one with the earth, with nature, with the energies all around you.
This provides a solid ground for growing, as Taurus requires.

The best time for a new start and for starting new projects is during the first two weeks of this New Moon cycle, the waxing phase of the Moon.
That is from May 4, 2019 to May 18, 2019, the Full Scorpio Moon.
The effect of the New Moon of May 4, 2019 lasts four weeks until the next New Moon of June 3, 2019.

Blessed New Moon!
