New Moon In Taurus, May 9, with a Solar Eclipse Chaser - Boiler Maker or Pressure Cooker
Do you remember the guy on the 9 of Wands, RWCS version? He has a bandage on his head and he’s using a wand to hold himself upright. He’s beat up, exhausted, but still standing there admiring the way those wands of his form a straight line. Welcome to the landscape of May’s New Moon in Taurus. There are two keywords you need to know to navigate the 9th; perseverance and self-worth. Okay, so technically that’s three words, but you get the idea.
Taurus has a marvelous, focused energy that sees things through to a successful completion. Slow and steady. New moons bring fresh emotional cycles and eclipses work as planetary reboots. The Annular Solar Eclipse of May 10th will alter our energy dynamic for the next six months. The things to keep in mind, however, are that Saturn in Scorpio is in opposition to the Sun in Taurus (see blog “Sunday, April 28, 2013 - Saturn in Opposition To Sun in Taurus”) and Uranus and Pluto are building up to a perfect square. What that means for us as individuals is that Saturn loves to teach us lessons about our inner strength by challenging us, so you may experience more than your fair share of stumbling blocks this coming weekend. Should that happen, lean on Taurus to keep you focused, grounded and moving forward while you deal with the situation.
A Uranus/Pluto square is a force to be reckoned with. It lays the groundwork for revolutionary change on a global level. If you don’t believe me, check out history. The radicalism of the 60’s was birthed under a Uranus/Pluto square. Hitler rose to power during a Uranus/Pluto square. Uranus is a planet of revolutionary process and swiping change, while Pluto is known for transformation and rebirth. Will you wake up this Friday to a new world order? Doubtful, but you might discover some, “mystic crystal revelations” to use in your own life. Use the square’s energy to create lasting, positive change. Know your value to yourself and to those around you. Stick with the goals you started during the Sun in Aries. You may feel as if you’re butting your head against a brick wall right now, but Taurus has horns and if you are persistent, you will make the necessary progress.
This is your time to learn something about yourself, win, loose or draw. It’s your belief in yourself that matters, as well as your commitment to your goals. Keep an eye on your financial situation. The Universe is on the in breath this week. I’m sure you’ve already felt the sense of tightening around you. Financial growth may seem nonexistent, but hold your course. Every bit of that hard-gained ground you capture now, will become rich and fertile towards the end of the month. Analyze your personal values, your financial resources, your possessions versus your self-worth. Strive to bring the tangible and the intangible into balance within your life.
