Moon is Taurus, 24° 36'
The Sun and Moon unite in Taurus for the new moon event. We may like the sense of security that we acquire in the darkness of this moon. Others of us may not like this feeling, at all. We can look inward to see our own strengths. The new moon is trine to Pluto in Capricorn adding to our abilities to see events more clearly.
Mercury in Taurus encourages us to see the practicality of our decisions. We don't need to assume that our thought is the only right thought. We may need to be open to others' opinions in order to cut down on disagreements. Mercury is conjunct to Uranus. Uranus is making the big move today, leaving Aries behind and moving into Taurus. This conjunction is likely to add to our state of concern and possibly our confusion as we adapt to the new influences that come with Uranus' transit in Taurus. The Mercury/Uranus conjunction is forming a square (out of sign) to Mars on the anaretic degree of Capricorn. Just another reason to dust off our patience and take a healthy step back from any aggressive situations.
Venus in Gemini is helping us with some of our adaptability needs. We might want to plan a party or gathering with our friends for next weekend, to help us feel connected. The new moon's influence may not be all warm and inviting, so having something to look forward to will help us to stay on track.
As mentioned, Mars is transiting over the anaretic degree of Capricorn and will be moving into Aquarius tomorrow. Meditation or a good workout can help drain some of the negativity that we feel during this transition. Be a little extra cautious while driving. This transit can cause us to become distracted and we are likely to be more vulnerable in ways that we can't anticipate.
Jupiter in Scorpio is transiting retrograde motion, trine to Neptune in Pisces and sextile to Pluto in Capricorn. Jupiter's transit in Scorpio can impact finances, legal matters and our desire for controlling outcomes. While Jupiter is retrograde, we may feel like we are wading through syrup as everything that we want seems to take twice as long. Our intuitions may be a mixed bag of confusion to spiritual insights. We just don't know which, is which.
All in all, our nature during this new moon will be to withdraw and secure the parameters of our lives. Life, in general, may not be feeling balanced, with nine planets in the feminine receptives of Earth and Water. We may not feel motivated to push forward today. With five of the planets in fixed signs, we may feel, temporarily, insecure. Little by little, as the day wears on, we will start to feel more reassured and secure.
Meditation for the May 15th New Moon
Love in a spiritual sense may mean seduction to a higher level.
