NEW MOON IN TAURUS
May 03, 2011
By: Maharani Rutan
The New moon will enter Taurus on May 03, 2011 at, 1:51 pm EST, 10:51 pm (May 02, 2011) at 13 degrees. Notice must be taken that every new moon since 2010 has been at 13 degrees in the sign that magnified that month. Though timing of this moon may be off due to how it is calculated this is at 6 degree orb.
New moon is powerful in many ways. Frequently, it is a time of hope and desires; hence it is also a time to evaluate if your aspirations are universally attainable. Examining the values of wants it may be advisable to make sure they have no bias and selfness and if so they will be granted. At the same time there is a high chance that there will be confusion between the needs and wants. Understanding the needs will always take priority over the wants through this new moon.
The new moon is also a time for a rebirth; it is a blessing to give ourselves a fresh start. A new moon gives ample energy to come out of hiding and bring something new in your life. There is an itch to take immediate action without thinking things through. Whether it is small change or just changing what is done on a daily basis. Perhaps taking a different road to work, which has more scenery but it takes longer. Or even simple as making realizing that something new has to enter your life as you take the wonderful journey which we call life.
"Venus enters Taurus on May 16, along with Mercury, the planet of communication. Venus in Taurus will change the pace of love energy from ardent and assertive to a slower, more laid back sensual kind of approach. We may become more materialistic and concerned with image and the way we appear to others.” ~ Leslie Hale
Taurus moon allows ample power to commit to personal goals, which will revolve it self around comfort and contentment. The oomph is enough to make right spur-of-the-moment decisions while following your intuition. This is a time to act from the heart without bias and selfness and trust the process will give the result that is needed to live for the moment. To be the unique energy that belongs with the stars and heaven.
“Mars, the planet of energy, and our 'blood', passions, and creative energies leaves Aries, the sign it rules,on May 11th, and heads for Taurus, the sign of love, work, real estate, and investments.” Rex Frederick
It is time to take a chance. Find the vision that you wish to create. There is absolute calmness in the air and perhaps there is a need to avoid adversaries. But it there is indication that avoiding confrontation clearly discredits who you are or what you believe in, then there is an absolute need to defend the position which is righteously yours. The need to have a tranquil surrounding is a need for this new moon. Perhaps even the tone of your voice from assertive or aggressive to may change to more calming and understanding. Through this process a voice will carry a tune which is melodious and surprisingly bring out the musical talents which were never discovered before.
“Taurus is the natural ruler of the second house of money, possessions and self image. Planets in Taurus move slower, but it is a fixed sign meaning intent is stronger. What comes to mind is the old children’s story of the hare and the turtle. The hare challenges the turtle to a race and soon leaves the turtle behind confident he has won. Midway he takes a nap and awakens to find the turtle with his steady crawl has actually arrived before him. This is the realm of planets entering Taurus. While the energy and pace may slow down, it is the final finish that counts the most.“ Leslie Hale
”The Warrior planet joins the Sun, and soon lucky, expansive Jupiter will follow, bringing financial blessings to those who are willing to 'make' things that are 'new', and let go of old patterns in order to benefits from the new arrangements the Stars have aligned for us in the past month or so.”~ Rex Frederick
The mixture of what is practical and spiritual and what is known will encourage self consciousness to make life much easier. The focus to accumulate, develop, increase personal and material issues will be welcomed with great rewards at this time.
“Taurus is a female sign and represents the spirit of creation and nature itself. Now, the seeds planted during the time of Aries can flourish into strong thoughts, ideas and actions.”~ Leslie Hale
“Venus, ruler of Taurus, conjuncts Jupiter, in Aries, and the ruler of Mars, on the same day, boosting the lucky and fortunate energies. Not only that, Mercury conjuncts Jupiter as well! This is a big day in the Stars, as Mars rules things that are 'first', and in the 'now'.” Rex Frederick
The drama of the last full moon or rather little before and during the full moon gave many the ground work needed to verbalize what they feel. The way it was said and how it was said was previously been caution and through the full moon there was a need to let it out. Now the new moon ushers the new dimension. This does not mean that the assertiveness and aggressiveness will continue but what ever that was said or needed to be said is said and it is time to discover the outcome of those lessons and move forwards.
“With four planets in Taurus by May 16 the focus will be on your love life if you are a Capricorn or Capricorn ascendant, looking for love. This is an extra special time to meet someone significant with both Venus and Mars in the same sign in your fifth house of love. This combination also works well for Taureans, who will get a major boost with the planets of love dancing through their sign through June 10. It also works well for Virgo and the water signs.” ~ Leslie Hale
The Moon in Taurus ushers in a time of prudence and common sense. There is a feel of conservatives and stability. A good time to continue or finish projects which were started and never finish. This type of forging may cause people to be to be stubborn and unwilling to compromise. Extra care is needed to avoid self-indulgence and excessive concerns to acquire material possessions.
The moon in Taurus represents a tranquil, sensible, physical, tolerant, and willful tendency which means the use of practical senses is the best alternative through this new moon energy. The magnificent liveliness of this energy calls for more grounded personality and to be tuned into earth. Through relationship between earth and humans there is a gift of seeking new ways to have more security and cohesion in our lives between nature and nurture. The new moon energy encourages emphasis on body, mind and soul transformations.
