Today’s Fortunate New Moon Gets You Closer to Your Destiny

May 19, 2023

At 8:53 a.m.: The moon is conjunct the sun

In the morning, the Taurus new moon invites us to plant seeds. This Venus-ruled moon asks us to get grounded and develop a keener awareness of our physical vessels and our material environments. In order to get where we want to go, we must first acknowledge where we are. Only when we’ve determined which energetic investments are worth making, can we begin to nurture their growth.  So, what are your long-term goals? What initiatives will secure greater peace of mind and financial comfort? The Taurus new moon says that it’s not wrong to want better! What we’re willing to work for will yield fruit if we can be patient with ourselves and the process.  This moon sextiles Neptune in Pisces, encouraging us to trust our intuition when making elections. Creative projects are especially favored. An additional sextile to Mars offers us the confidence to hit the ground running. We can act upon psychic hits instead of weighing their efficacy. The moon also makes an out-of-sign trine to Pluto in Aquarius, facilitating important realizations regarding our power and purpose. Seeking our destiny promises rewards. 

At 11:48 a.m.: The moon enters Gemini, and the moon void of course ends

Before noon, the moon enters Gemini. Although we’ll still be feeling the effects of the new moon, we are passing into new lunar terrain that is more restless and social. Over the next two days, curiosity motivates us. We are at our emotional best when we’re actively engaging with the world around us. This is an ideal time for running errands, meeting new people, and making discoveries. Any correspondence that fell by the wayside recently can be tackled now.
