May New Moon & Solar Eclipse

New Moons mark the beginning of a new cycle—a cosmic reset.

This is the perfect time for setting Intentions or launching a project. A time to ground your ideas and plans and get clarity around a new direction. Depending on what sign the New Moon is in, you can lean into and receive guidance and energy in a specific area of your life based on the energetics of that sign.

MAY'S NEW MOON IS IN TAURUS PLUS A SOLAR ECLIPSE IN TAURUS/SCORPIO.

This Solar Eclipse occurs when Venus makes a rare connection to Jupiter, known as the Jupiter-Neptune Conjunction in Pisces. It is particularly significant that Venus is the ruler of this Eclipse because it will act as an amplifier to the new beginnings that naturally happen with a New Moon. And this Solar Eclipse will be felt for up to six months!

This eclipse is all about defining what makes us feel safe and secure.

Because of the influence of Taurus, you'll feel pulled to focus on personal finance—exploring new ways of making money or earning income. New and potent energy comes with taking charge of personal finances, so get started! There will also be a focus on values, ownership, physical and material resources, personal possessions, feelings of worthiness, and a desire for security and safety.

It will also challenge your resistance to change, your comfort, and your sensuality.

It all comes down to examining your self worth and what you can do to increase those feelings. It's good to explore and discover what you value and want in your life and to release ANYTHING that isn't contributing to feelings of worthiness. It also means rooting out anything (or anyone) that gives you a false sense of security. Find out what makes you truly happy and content and follow that, letting the rest of it fall away.

Sometimes Solar Eclipses create events in our lives that make us address our situations. This Solar Eclipse is about new beginnings and long-term changes that are in the works. So expect some changes. Because this is a part of a series of eclipses (in Taurus and Scorpio from November 2021 to October 2023) you'll have some time to discover your own values in all aspects of your life. Discovering personal power is what this eclipse cycle is about.

Because Solar Eclipses tend to create upheaval, they can also make you feel like you need to take immediate action. Channel the bull. Be calm. Know that decisions made purely in reaction to situations are not good decisions. Take your time. Focus on what will make you feel good in the long run and head in that direction.

Use this Taurus-infused time to activate the constructive traits of the bull: strong will, consistent, sensual, enduring, deliberate, patient.

It's good to get in touch with simple, physical pleasures, like good food, nature, exercise, that connects you to your body. Remember to pay attention to what makes you feel comfortable and secure.
