New Moon in Taurus on May 4th, 2019 makes it a splendid time to rekindle some much needed me time with ourselves. The stress from school, work and life in general must be checked so that we can find a balance within ourselves to continue on this fun journey through the next seven months. It is still a shock to me that the year is almost halfway over especially when 2018 dragged (especially for me). We are now experiencing some planets retrograding (hello, Jupiter!) and it is a pivotal time to reflect and get everything in order so we will not repeat the same mistakes later on this year.
Aries — The New Moon will make you want to gain some optics when it comes to how others see you and most importantly how you see yourself. Use this moment to stop the temper tantrums, ground yourself and start focusing on things you may have been neglecting. Get that business plan ready and do it accordingly.
Taurus — It is your time to shine as the New Moon empowers and strengthens you. The boost of energy and focus is what you will need for the upcoming months. Do not be afraid to have fun, express yourself and be you. This is your party month where opportunities pop up and you will be the center of attention. Enjoy.
Gemini — With the New Moon in Taurus, you will take things slowly as you start to weigh some options that are pending. Jupiter is opposing your Ascendant, making things a little more interesting as you contemplate the people entering your life. This is a good time to plan deals or just preserving friendships in general. Reach out to someone you miss.
Cancer — The New Moon will help bump your social status a bit during this transit because you will have the opportunity to meet more people. In general, Cardinal signs (you included) will be working a lot harder than others this year. However, you’ll feel inspired by people you meet and your creativity and work ethic will allow for you to work harder and be more motivated.
Leo — This is your time to take control of your destiny. Plan ahead, don’t be afraid to take those leaps when it comes to fighting for a position you want or just want to be top of the class at school. Visualize and do it because the New Moon will allow for you to get there, just start believing it’s true and you’ll see magic happen.
Virgo — This is a good time to escape from the pressures of the world through reading or writing. Meditate, utilize yoga to help with the nerves. The transit demands for the restlessness that’s been haunting you to be in control. When you are ready, take the driver’s seat (metaphorically speaking) and set course for your next adventure.
Libra — With the Moon gracing you this transit, you will experience a bump in income, or the ability to resolve some issues that had been bugging you for some time. This transit allows for you to understand the value of patience. You have been working hard this year and things may seem like they aren’t giving you results. The fruits of your labor will be shown soon enough, keep at it.
Scorpio — The energy of the New Moon brings a focus on your independence and how well you handle personal relationships. Are you suffocating your friends? Can you be overbearing? Take some tips from your sister sign and learn how to be sweeter, work the charm and bring out that “artist.” Show love with less intensity and educate those with more compassion.
Sagittarius — Taurus energy will be felt and you’ll be motivated to work as hard as possible. The challenges have been presented, especially to the Sagittarius folks with second and third decans. You’re not afraid of challenges and proving to others what you can do. This transit can make or break you because it relates to output. Work hard and get rewarded, slack off and expect failure.
Capricorn — Another sign that needs a break is yours. You’ve experienced the heavy hitters the last two years but you’re strong and wiser because of it. This energy makes you relaxed and more inclined to experience excitement in your life. Take a break if you can and hang with people you care for so you can feel more liberated and decompressed. You feel lucky and will see the results of projects you’ve worked on.
Aquarius — A good opportunity to take a break from the world with this New Moon in Taurus. You may consider some redesign or discover new ways to control what you spend since you might feel compelled to throw it all in something that isn’t practical. When you feel more grounded with family and friends, it will help you feel luckier and happier. Any tensions you may have experienced at home will be eased with this transit.
Pisces — Finally, the fishes will be stimulated mentally and spiritually with this transit. You already feel magnificent and radiant with the influx of income or outflow, if you’ve been treating yourself. This transit will fuel the inner party animal as you switch gears later on in the month, compelled to connect and meet new people. Take things slowly and don’t make decisions on a whim before carefully planning and analyzing them.
