New Moon in Taurus – a sweet spot to dream

New Moon in Taurus

The New Moon in Taurus arrives on Friday 19th May (20th May for some time zones) reminding us to feel the earth beneath our feet and find our center. Amongst all the shifting energies we have been through with the recent eclipses, this new moon calls us home to ourselves to feel grounded once more.

With eclipse season behind us and Mercury turning direct, I like to think the skies are giving us a much-needed pause to recalibrate ourselves. (Thank you cosmos!)

When we work with Taurus energy, we call in themes such as security, beauty, abundance, pleasure, and prosperity. If you plan to set intentions around this new moon, it can be helpful to think about these themes in your own life, and whether you’d like to bring some more of their energy in. If so, this is the moon to work with!

It also brings an opportunity to reflect on what has been revealed to us at eclipse season and to remember that it’s ok to slow down and smell the roses. So…what have you learnt from the last month? And, how can you integrate this wisdom to bring you back to a deep sense of abundance within yourself?

There are some other energies at play around this new moon with Neptune bringing a visionary quality, and Mars giving our bravery and honesty a nudge. Jupiter, known as the greater benefic in ancient astrology, has just moved into Taurus too and makes a potent aspect to Pluto in Aquarius. This all suggests a powerful new moon to dream with, restore energy and focus on what brings pleasure to our lives.

Take a deep breath, slow down and get comfortable in your own magic. You’ve got this.

Wishing you a wonderful new moon,
