The New Moon in Taurus

May 11, 2021

The Taurus new moon occurring on May 11th, 2021 challenges us to slow down and look at our lives from a bird’s eye view. Our long-term visions and goals are at stake here, so be sure to press pause and reflect on what you’re currently manifesting. This will require you to come to terms with your relationship to power, as well as the larger forces at play.

The new moon makes a trine to Pluto retrograde, marking a period of introspection and transformation. This is a great time to reflect on patterning around power and control. With Neptune in the mix, we are being asked to build awareness around the divine’s presence in our lives. Remember that when it comes to chasing your goals, you don’t have to do it alone. In order to feel powerful, our shadow grasps at any opportunity for control. However, this new moon invites us to consider the ways in which we give our power away by doing this.  

Pluto is often linked to what we fear, and it sits in the sign of Capricorn – an archetype that is tied to management and responsibility. When we are afraid of losing control, we risk micromanaging our lives, leading to stress and unhappiness. Taurus is all about high-value and sustainability. When fear drives our decisions, we not only waste precious energy, but also compromise the quality of our lives. Consider that there are larger forces at play, and trusting the timing of the universe is a skill that is worth developing. Draw power from your connection to source, knowing that you are guided, supported, and exactly where you need to be. Take care of the practical and methodical planning, but leave room for spirit to work its magick.

Mercury in Gemini makes a conjunction to the north node, and a trine to Saturn in Aquarius. This placement is highly impactful, as it involves our life’s mission and direction. It’s an invitation to get clear on our future visions, ideas, and goals. Slow down, and take the time to view your life from a big picture perspective. What do you truly want to build in order to secure long-term happiness? What do you feel is worth committing to and working for? What are you currently committing to, and will it lead to a high-quality life? If not, what is making you commit to this reality?

Reflect on your path now in relation to the direction that feels most authentic to you. Instead of setting intentions from a place of neurosis, be open to the information spirit has to offer. Consider the path that feels in alignment with your truth, and allows you to dance to the beat of your own drum. Taurus is concerned with the the long-haul, security, and comfort. However, be sure that your long-term goals aren’t built upon foundations of fear around power and control. This isn’t sustainable, and eventually, your reality will feel unfulfilling. Instead, transform the thought patterning that provides short-term relief and temporary power plays, but is destructive in the long run. This is an invitation to reshape your mind to create a meaningful, passionate life that will stand the tests of time.

Happy new moon in Taurus, magickal ones!

Honoring this new moon may look like…

  1. Journaling: This new moon is influenced by Gemini energy, a sign that is associated with communication. Write down your ideas and visions for the future. What do you want your path to look like? What would lead to long-term happiness and fulfillment? You can also journal about your relationship to power, and what you’d like to commit to.

  2. Talking to source: Another form of communication is speaking. Consider having a conversation with your higher power. Ask for guidance, support, and empowerment on your journey. You can also ask for signs that you aren’t alone in achieving your goals. Build a relationship with your higher power, and trust that you will get to where you’re going.
