On May 11, the moon is new in earthy, sensual Taurus, ushering in a type of energy that invites us to get comfortable, luxuriate, and take it slow. A new moon marks the beginning of the lunar cycle, providing an aligned time to reconnect with ourselves, reflect on how we are feeling in our current situations, and refocus our energy into a fresh start.

New Moon in Taurus Ritual
My favorite new moon ritual for this lunation is to indulge in a tea of herbs imbued with the Taurean intention of grounded self-care in order to open our hearts to a new beginning.
For this tea you will need:
- 1 Part Roses (to invoke love in all of its forms and open our hearts)
- 1 Part Chamomile (grounding and relaxing)
- ½ Part Hibiscus (to attract more of that self-love and self-care, plus a dose of vitality and rooting!)
- Several slices of fresh Ginger root (grounding and healing)
- Add two tablespoons of the mixture of herbs as well as the sliced ginger to your tea strainer and pour in a cup of hot water.
Add two tablespoons of the mixture of herbs as well as the sliced ginger to your tea strainer and pour in a cup of hot water. As you make this tea, think about the intention you are currently invoking and infuse it into your tea. Let Venusian-ruled Taurus inspire you by invoking feelings of luxury, indulgence, and love.
Next, allow the tea to steep for fifteen minutes. As the last step, finish with a squeeze of lemon to add a boost of clarity and honey to taste if you desire sweetness. The result color of the tea should be a gorgeous pink (due to the hibiscus!). Sip slowly and pleasurably as you feel filled with self-love and the energy of your new moon intentions. (Make it extra magical by enjoying a cup of this tea in the bath with pink rose petals!)
This tea can also be savored while leisurely reading your weekly Tarot reading.
Weekly Tarot Reading: May 10-16
Aries: The Fool Reversed
Be cautious, Aries. Before jumping into this new endeavor, carefully consider your options. Do you really want to do this or are you bored? There are so many other ways to entertain yourself that will require less commitment than this potential opportunity requires from you.
Taurus: The Hanged Man
Go with the flow, Taurus. Just because something is not moving forward at this exact moment, it doesn’t mean that you will be stuck at this standstill forever. Look at this pause as an excuse to take a necessary break! Everything will pick up again next week.
Gemini: King of Swords Reversed
Choose a direction, Gemini. Where are you headed next? It’s getting to be time to decide because you cannot put it off much longer. This week, make it a priority to explore your options and gain the clarity you so badly need right now. Delaying the inevitable is only making you more anxious!
Cancer: Five of Wands
Your weekly Tarot reading for May 10 says: Stop engaging, Cancer. Conflict is brewing around you, and instead of diving deeper into it, it’s time to take a pause to listen to the other side’s viewpoint. Hear them out! This momentary challenge is presenting an opportunity to grow closer and stronger with mutual respect.
Leo: Two of Wands Reversed
Stop overthinking everything, Leo. It’s time to get your priorities straight so you can take your next steps! Is your indecisiveness hiding a deeper fear of change, or is it more of a fear of the unknown? Don’t let these doubts hold you back from moving forward into something new that will serve you well.
Virgo: Eight of Swords Reversed
Don’t be so harsh on yourself, Virgo! Your inner critic is coming out in full force this week, which is not doing you any favors right now. Stop telling yourself that you are not good enough or unworthy of the opportunities in front of you. Be kinder to yourself and do not give up on striving for what you desire to accomplish.
Libra: King of Wands
You can do this, Libra! A new opportunity is presenting itself to you, and now you need to go for it in full force!

By believing in yourself and your abilities, you will be successful with this new endeavor.
Scorpio: Nine of Wands Reversed
Don’t give up, Scorpio! This week presents an obstacle in your path, but do not let this minor challenge deter you from completing your tasks. Yes, this is totally frustrating, but you know exactly what to do to handle it. Remember that this setback is only temporary.
Sagittarius: Six of Swords
It’s time to move on, Sagittarius. You have been trying to make it work, but the harsh reality is that some situations just cannot be remedied. The kindest move to make for yourself right now is to let go and move forward on a new path. This is all part of your healing journey.
Capricorn: The Devil Reversed
Take on this new opportunity, Capricorn. Do not let the fear of the unknown hold you back from engaging in an exciting new endeavor that helps you attain your highest goals. This is an opportunity for major growth, and you are definitely up for the challenge! Just believe in yourself and your abilities.
Aquarius: Nine of Swords Reversed
Don’t get overwhelmed, Aquarius. Anxiety is high this week, so limit what you take on and prioritize activities that get you out of your head. Meet a friend for a walk or spend some much-needed time in nature. Once you clear your mind and create some distance from your worries, everything will not feel quite as heavy.
Pisces: Five of Swords Reversed
Your weekly Tarot reading for May 10 wants you to make a compromise, Pisces. The current conflict you are facing will not be resolved until you give a little to the other side. This has been dragging on for far too long and everyone is ready to move forward (especially you!).
