According to traditional astrological sources, the New Moon represents the end of one cycle and the beginning of another new 28-day cycle. It is often viewed as a symbol of endings and new beginnings. The nighttime darkness of the New Moon symbolizes the mysterious watery depth of the unconscious – the transpersonal realm where personal identity and individual boundaries dissolve and the sense of direction and ego are lost for the purpose of cleansing away the past in order to prepare the way for the future.
Archetypally, the New Moon symbolically represents the fetus in the womb (Moon) waiting to be born into a new life (Sun), the Gnostic Marriage of Sol (the Sun) and Lunar (the Moon) – the alchemical marriage of male and female, the Greek goddess Hestia (Vesta) – the crackling blaze of the home hearth, the interplay of instinct (Moon) and ego (Sun), of soul (Moon) and spirit, yin (feminine) and yang (masculine) principles, Mother (Moon) and Father (Sun) or Man (Sun) and Woman (Moon), and existence (Moon) and meaning (Sun).
The May New Moon at 21°21′ occurs on May 11th, at 4:21 pm EDT. The Taurus archetype symbolizes the plentitude, sustenance, abundance, the bounty of mother nature and the cornucopia of delights, especially those of the senses – food, pleasure, and beauty. Taurus represents the steadfast and patient soul, capable of tremendous devotion, dedication, endurance, and constancy, to bring concrete, tangible results through one’s efforts. Therefore, the Taurus New Moon energy is an ideal time to take definitive action with firm resolve toward a making any venture successful.
The Taurus New Moon is in close aspect to Neptune by sextile, signifying period of greater receptivity and openness to the imaginative, mystical, intangible, and subtle realm, where one can more easily receive or give conscious guidance based one’s inner intuitive attunement. This New Moon can arouse interest in the occult and increase one’s latent psychic ability in automatic writing, dowsing, divination, mediumship, precognition, and remote viewing. Therefore, this New Moon is ideal for cultivating the law of attraction and taking tangible steps in manifesting one’s intention through making a vision a board that clarifies one’s future dreams and desired outcomes. The Taurus New Moon conjuncts the Venus-Uranus midpoint indicating the urge to initiate social activities and augurs interesting developments in love and friendship, yearnings for a fun and exciting social life, creative and aesthetic breakthroughs, and a re-awakening of romantic desire, youthful sexuality, and ecstatic emotional transcendence.
Regardless, the New Moon energy indicates that are moving back towards a better and brighter future with feelings of sweet rebirth in the air.
