New Moon in Taurus: May 2024

New Moon in Taurus: May 7 2024 at 8:22 p.m. PDT

Astrologically speaking, the New Moon is the time to set intentions - to plant the seeds of what you want to bring into your life. As the Sun and the Moon align at the same degree of the Zodiac, the yin and the yang become one. Your intentions are planted into a fertile cosmic soil. The Universe is listening. 

This very auspicious New Moon, at 18° Taurus, might just be THE day of the year to set intentions for attracting financial prosperity, increasing patience and perseverance, and bringing contentment and sensuality into your life. 

It re-activates the Jupiter-Uranus conjunction, still strong in the skies.  Check where 18° Taurus falls in your chart, and especially if this New Moon makes any aspects to your natal planets or angles (Ascendant, Descendant, MC or IC).  If a change has been brewing in your life over the past few months, it can happen within 4 weeks. 

If your birthday is on May 7-8, this New Moon will be active in your Solar Return chart for the upcoming 12 months.  There is an opportunity for a big, quantum leap change that realigns your life with where it was supposed to go.  Don't miss it! 

If that's you (or if your birthday is in April or May), you may be interested in this reading.

Back to setting intentions on this New Moon.  You're not limited to the intention-setting topics I suggest in this post. Setting intentions for anything you want to attract into your life is fair game on a New Moon. But, intentions for the matters ruled by Taurus get an extra boost.

If you're new to working with New Moon energies, you may be interested in my post "Setting Intentions on a New Moon: Why and How".

How To:

  1. Set your intentions soon after the new Moon, within 8 hours if you can (within 24 hours will still work). Set aside about 30 minutes for this.
  1. If you are setting intentions for financial success, you may want to light a green candle. 
  1. Focus on your intentions. Truly FEEL them. Then write them down and keep them. Visualize what it will feel like when you receive what you’re calling into your life. Visualize yourself financially abundant. There are no money worries. You have enough money to support you and your goals. To spread around. To spend on your loved ones. To give to your favourite charity.  What would it feel like? FEEL that emotion.

Sample Intentions:

    Sample intentions might include:

    “I want to easily find myself making more money.”

    “I want to attract and purchase the right car/house/____ at the price I can afford.”

    “I want to be more patient with ______.”

    “I want to easily find myself relying on my own efforts for success”.

    “I want to enjoy and appreciate my life”.

    “I want to easily be able to focus on the good things in my life”.

    “I want to be find myself enjoying the sensual side of life in a happy way”.

    “I want to be able to bring more sensuality into my relationship with ___________”.

    "I want to be easily be able to make decisions that are aligned with my values".

    To Go Deeper:

    We all have the ability to draw what we desire to us, the ability to manifest the future we want. We don't always use it, because we don't know how!

    We spend years in school, learning science and literature and many other subjects. Then we spend years developing skills we need for our career.

    Well, it’s never too late! My New Moon mini-course is now fully digital. You will learn several manifestation techniques to add to your toolkit. 

    Participants Say:

    ✨ I still can’t believe it. Truly, I’ve been talking about moving/buying a house for decades but never felt it was within my reach. I think having those specific intentions, written clearly helped me to focus on achieving those goals.  

    Nothing dropped in my lap and I had to make the effort but rather than having to walk the whole way, a moving walkway appeared at just the right moments to help me over some challenging spots.  From now on I’m going to work WITH the Universe!
