NEW MOON IN Taurus 24 degrees
A New Moon in the sign of Taurus will take place on May 15th, 2018. New Moons are a door opening from the Universe. YOU must lay seeds in this area of life AFTER it appears, depending on your sign (and rising sign) to receive the greatest change. The power of this New Moon lasts six months to a year. The actions you take from May 15thth – May 27th will likely come to fruition in very big ways by October 24th, 2018 (plus or minus four days) depending on the success of your initial plans.
ENERGY FORECAST: LOVE, BEAUTY, AND TREMENDOUS PASSION
Taurus energy is strong, sensual, grounded, and prosperous. This is the sign ruled by Venus, which is the planet of love, beauty, union, art, and money. Because of this, Taurus naturally rules the pleasures and best things in life – the romance that lives forever, the art that can affect the world, as well as the ability to build long-lasting prosperity. Taurus energy forges ahead and completes everything that it starts, even if that means taking a slow and methodical approach to make it happen. However, Taurus, as the bull, contains tremendous, deep emotion, allowing this energy to manifest physically in our lives (sensual intimacy, building or creating something) or mentally (launching a major plan that is guaranteed for success, setting a course and not giving up). Yet, Taurus energy isn’t all about charging ahead without end, as the bull likes to relax and indulge in the natural beauties that we amass because life is too short, love is to be enjoyed, and when we treat ourselves to the pleasures of the spirit and the body, we can experience a happiness second-to-none. Because of this New Moon, we will be allowing ourselves to indulge in our sensual pleasures and see new blessings coming into our lives. The season of Taurus is all about the birth of spring into its full beauty – and our lives, too, will blossom and flourish.
“YOU CAN HAVE IT ALL”
This New Moon makes some beautiful and exciting interactions with the planets, amplifying its affect on all of our lives. Pluto, the planet of tremendous power, blesses the New Moon at this time, bringing deep experiences and positive transformations in your life (depending on where it falls below for you). Also, Pluto will be bringing great influence, power, and personal/professional success to this area of your life, too, so this New Moon is one of the most significant in all of 2018 because you will see this area of your life grow exponentially. Like a vine, this area of your life can completely flourish and take over a mountain. Venus, too, contacts the New Moon and will be bringing extra, lyrical magic to this area of your life, and if you put effort into love, money, art, or growing important relationships, opportunities will appear like diamonds in the rough. Seize the magic of this New Moon – your entire life can be transformed in these abundant ways.
Money seems to be about to come in – or ways to generate more of it. Increase your income by looking for better jobs or by asking for a raise. Show you're qualified. Update that resume. Also focus on the things you "own," especially your possessions. People are not possessions, but if you look at people in that way, make sure they're yours, dependent on you, and you will lock that down. What do you own? Make sure it's yours to stay -- because it can be. If you're looking to buy things, you're likely to have luck.
This New Moon is ALL ABOUT YOU, and that means you are in the spotlight. Use this time to evaluate who you are, what you want, and where you are going. You can utilize the power of this New Moon in any way you’d like, but it is the only New Moon to fall in your sign until next year. Use this time to analyze how you want to shine – and then go for it! Put yourself out there. Get a fresh new haircut, wardrobe, or style. Start that project that’s been on the backburner that you’ve always wanted to pursue. Become the person you were meant to be. If your birthday falls three days before or after May 15th, this will be a BIG year for you. It will be one with lots of new beginnings, new relationships, and you will see how this year marks a major change for your life. You may move to a new home or city or see a huge shift in your lifestyle and view of the world. This will also occur if you have 24 degrees Taurus as an Ascendant/Rising Sign (+/- 4 degrees). Be ready! Here it comes.
All things that are hidden and growing will soon come to light for you. Your time is coming. Every dream, fire, desire, and focus is in your scope now. Things may come out that you've long hidden or things that have been hidden by other people, so be aware. This New Moon will "clear out" the past year, and get you ready to finally shine. Lay any seed you want to germinate slowly. It will need more time than most. Lay your biggest endeavors at the next New Moon on June 13th, 2018, so use this time to release the past and let go of pain and enemies.
Your dreams and aspirations, as well as friends, are heating up. What do you want long-term and how do you get it? Think about that vision you've always wanted. Make a plan. You're good at that. Create the steps. Make it possible. This can cover any area of life. However, you're about to heat up a lot of social fun, and you're likely to find these dreams align with new people you meet, so say YES to your social engagements and watch your coming year light up with stronger friendships and ferocity.
This New Moon will help lay a pattern of success in your career for you that will last six months to a year. The seeds you lay around this time will crown you in success, glory, or public recognition. Send resumes. No updated resume yet? Do it now. And make sure you make a list of some top candidates you want to apply to. Search out anyone and anything that can improve your power, “fame,” and status in your life. Sometimes, this even means aligning yourself with people or partners in order to create united power. If you want a public marriage, relationship, or business engagement, this would be the time to lay that forward too. Pay attention to offers that come by, new projects that are gaining momentum, or any lover/partner that may able to lift you to the stars.
Grow your mind, expand your horizons, and travel are open roads to you now. Academics, spirituality, and media (public relations, publication, television, writing of all sorts but on a very large scale) can be blessings to you. Find ways to better yourself by looking at how you are connected to the greater world. Join groups. Fine tune skills. Find mentors. Ask for help. This is a pivotal moment to get your life together before you are about to ramp up to career momentum at the next New Moon in Gemini, on June 13th, 2018. New experiences are awaiting you, so buckle up and get ready for the ride. You’re going to flourish.
Anything to do with deep union is in focus. Loans. Joint bank accounts and businesses. Combined projects and ownership. Sexuality, especially when it is not in balance. Secrets. Things that are not equal. This will be a time where you can forge stronger unions and start new ones. Money is likely to be in focus for many of you. The biggest thing you'll be thinking about is: what do you owe me? What do I owe you? Make sure that you open yourself to deeper connections and to giving and receiving in more fulfilling ways. However, do not take on more “debt” than you can give back – remember, balance in partnerships, however you establish them, is key.
Partnerships. Business. Marriage. "Becoming official." Long-term friendships. Unions. You can be blessed with all. This is a good time to assess what you want in a serious partner and what you do not. Make a list. If you have a partner (in business or love), use this time to talk about taking your union to the next level and how you can compromise and work better together. If it’s not going to work, it may be time to let that relationship go. For those looking for key partnerships, it may be a time where you meet a destined one or someone finally steps up in the ways you’ve been hoping for.
Work, work, work, work. It’s time to buckle down and get everything moving in motion. Use this time to amplify your work life. Ask for more projects from employers. If you're self-employed, advertise and get your name out there. Ask for referrals. If you work for a business, make sure you're being seen by your superiors. You'll also be focusing on your fitness and daily rhythm. How do you balance your work-life? Anything to do with fitness/health is also in focus: want to lose weight? Kick that bad habit? Quit smoking? Get on a plan. Meet a doctor. Stop waiting. Do it now. If you want to get a new job, this would be a time to be rocking out those resumes. Use this time well. Grind. It’ll pay off.
Love, romance, fun, adventure, and creativity shine for you now. You'll be more attractive, so if you're single, get your face out there! Meet people. It's better to meet people through friends or socially rather than apps. Plan some events. Some of you may be moving and changing up your lifestyle. Embrace every ounce of change that is coming. You're worth it. Also, there may be a focus on art projects and you may feel more inspired than any recent times. Embrace that muse. It was meant for you. If you have children, they may be taking focus for you.
The foundation of your life can change. The way you love yourself, self-love, as well as everything to do with family, home, your "chosen home/family," Mother/Father relationships, and anything to do with domestic matters will be apparent now. Jump on real estate if you can. Update your living space. Buy some new furniture, give a wall a fresh coat of paint, look for that perfect cooking set for you to entertain with. Being domestic is going to go well for you, now, so invite friends over or use this time to enjoy your home. Also, you’re going to be considering what truly makes you happy and if you have the things in your life you need, particularly self-respect and self-love. Look in the mirror and ask yourself: "Do I like myself? What do I truly need? What makes me happy? Am I on a path that is fulfilling emotionally?” Answer these questions truthfully.
Get ready to expand all areas of communication. Focus on advertising, social media, grow your presence online or with people, and anything ruled by communication will flourish. Meet new people. Reach out to new contacts. Ask others for new contacts. Submit a resume. If you want a job in any of these areas listed, get it, because you can. Writing. Agencies. Contracts. It's all lighting up. The time is now. Lay the seeds.
