This new moon is at 0° 30’ Sidereal Taurus, exact at 7:49 am EDT. It is just inside the constellation of Taurus and therefore could retain some flavor or Aries as well. Taurus Sun and Moon widely oppose a retrograde Jupiter in 5th Area Libra. Balancing relationship issues may come up for us this month: Security vs. Others, our personal values vs. other’s value systems, etc. We need to stick to our own values rather that trying to squeeze ourselves into someone else’s for the sake of harmony, or loneliness. We do not win when we give up our Selves to get what we think we want. If we know who we are and what we need, we should be fine.
We have Chiron in sidereal Pisces and Neptune in Aquarius with the Mid-Heaven point. There may be some painful awareness and confusion or idealism around our career or public Area of Life. Step back and observe what is happening in this area of your life and don’t act out of fear. Stay grounded and notice. If you are called to make decisions that are potentially life-changing, wait until you can calmly think it through first. The same could open up in the Global Arena with political leaders reassessing their strategies. Remember, the Universe shows us what is. It is our job to accept that and let go our ego gratification if it doesn’t match up. We will be guided by noticing what is. If it is not to our liking, we need to reassess our values, not push against what is, but move into acceptance and learn the lessons the Universe has set forth.
In 11th Area of Life Aries, Uranus and Mercury conjunct. We may have some sudden lightning bolt ideas that change the game for us. Or information comes to us right when we need it and can act accordingly. We need to hold off any new long-term commitments to groups or projects involving more than just ourselves. Again, stand back, observe and see how everything falls in or out of place. Then we can make up our minds and act accordingly. Follow the path of effortless doing.
And with Venus, as the Evening Star, conjunct this chart’s Ascendant in Gemini, knowing what our values are will be very important in this coming month: an echo of the New Moon configuration. This aspect squares Neptune so we need to give this some careful thought and attention, see if we want to alter anything in our value system and then step forward into that with authenticity and clarity.
Both Saturn and Pluto are retrograde and in 7th Area Sagittarius. We will be revisiting issues to do with relating as well as beliefs or philosophy. Black Moon Lilith is conjunct Pluto (and both are opposing Asteroid Lilith) and we may have feelings of inadequacy, and banishment for being ourselves. It is best to observe these feelings as they arise, noticing any knee-jerk urges that might crop up. Then we have the ability to heal with conscious attention rather than perpetuating the same habitual responses.
Energetically it is a time to really commit to self and our authenticity. The month of May could give us a collective breather, but life is still intense. Don’t be fooled into complacency. There is no place for that any more. If something isn’t working for you, reassess the process even if everyone around you insists that technique works. Listen to your own wisdom. Let go of seeking answers on the Internet, through books, or ‘other’ sources other than yourself. Go even more deeply than you have ever gone and commit 100% to Self through love, listening and then acting when appropriate. Release fear, sorrow, grief, bitterness, etc. This means you will feel it as it is releasing and this is tough – but so worth it! It passes more easily without resistance.
Personally, this is a very intense time for me with six transiting Uranus aspects (some once-in-a-life-time), a major once-in-a-lifetime Pluto transit and various other astro intensities. I am going to once again pull back from my writing & videos and be for me. There is some deep listening to do as the Universe points the way with what is. Uncluttering and allowing are the watchwords.
I will still be offering private astrology readings. Please get in touch if this work has resonated with you. It is a lifeline to me as I navigate through this time, and it is wonderful to share this bright wisdom with others.
