Happy New Moon in Taurus!
We are reaching the peak of Spring here in the Northern Hemisphere. The New Moon joins the Sun in the warm and ambitious sign of Taurus on May 15th. This is opening a gateway for transformation to take place on many levels.
The New Moon is also holding space for the transition of Uranus into Taurus. This takes place only minutes after the New Moon is at her darkest point. Uranus has not been in Taurus in over 75 years. In fact, it hasn't shifted signs since 2011, so prepare to feel a 7 year cycle ending, and a new one beginning..
The human race is waking up. On an individual level and as a collective consciousness. We are all on our way to a global awakening and a massive spiritual shift. This New Moon is helping open doors for us all to take the steps needed to make that happen. Each step you take towards your own personal healing and awakening helps the entire planet reach that global shift.
What kind of things are you willing to let go of in order to grow something new? Are you ready for these inner and outer shifts to take place? What is your current vision for your future and the future of humanity?
Grab a cup of coffee & read on to see what's in store for you this New Moon Cycle!
New Moon in Taurus on May 15th
This New Moon takes place in the sign of Taurus, a house of prosperity, strength and endurance. It is the transition of Uranus (the planet of change and chaos) into Taurus that will be stealing the show and taking main stage this week.
New Moon's tend to cause us to draw inward and feel vulnerable, so this could make for a delicate time! Especially with Mars moving from Capricorn to Aquarius on this day. Be prepared for some sudden revelations or surprises with these aspects.
Taurus is a logical and stubborn sign that does not like change. But the astrological influences right now are demanding that change! Practice the practical traits of Taurus to get through this tricky dynamic. There is a reason we have so much going on in the grounded and earthy sign of Taurus. Common sense needs to be a ruling factor right now.
The card pulled for this cycle is the Libra: The Peacemaker. A reminder to stay balanced, grounded and weigh your options before acting. This week may hold surprises and sudden change so it's important to stay level headed. Stay in control of your emotions, don't let them control you! Fluorite, rose quartz, or amethyst could make for great crystal companions this week!
Don't forget to set a solid intention towards what you want to see grow this cycle!
First Quarter Moon in Leo, May 21st
The First Quarter Moon takes place in Leo on the 21st of May. Our own inner fire and energy grows with the Waxing Moon as she enters the fiery and ambitions sign of Leo, The Hero. As our personal focus grows, energy from within is channeled towards the goals and intentions that were placed during the New Moon. Be sure to write clear intentions and take the needed actions.
Now is the time to focus your energy and follow your ambitions. A lot can get done this week and it is your time to shine! This makes for a great time to perform on stage, socialize or work with others. This cycle can be a powerful one towards the pursuit of your goals. Take the needed steps, you will be proud of yourself later!
The card pulled for this phase is Waxing Gibbous: Focus, a fitting card for this energetic time. This can be a powerful and productive week for you leading to the Full Honey Moon coming in a few days. Use a to-do list or planner and focus your attention towards your goals. Using citrine, carnelian or aragonite can help increase your focus this week!
Full Honey Moon in Sagittarius, May 29th
The Full Honey Moon takes place in the sign of Sagittarius on the 29th of May. A time of productivity, warmth and enjoying the sweeter things of life. This is the last Full Moon of the Spring season for us in the Northern Hemisphere
This Full Moon holds both a manifestation and reflection of your New Moon intentions. It is time to pause and celebrate, while looking to see new ways to expand your reach.
Sagittarius helps us push ourselves to expand our vision while perfecting our aim.
This Full Moon is sextile Mars. This increases that ambitious yet celebratory dynamic we are feeling around this time. There is a drive towards both work and play right now.
The card pulled for this phase is the Super Moon: Wild Card. Showcasing that sense of the endless possibilities that lie before you. Anything can happen right now!
You have the ability to create the life you want with your powerful focus and aim.
This Full Moon is all about taking control, recognizing your target, aiming your focus and then "releasing" to proceed. Some crystal companions this week would be honey calcite, selenite or dragon stone.
Don't forget to join us back here on the Full Moon to celebrate and honor this Honey Moon with a special ritual! (Sign up for our newsletter below to receive a link before the Full Moon!)
Last Quarter Moon in Pisces, June 6th
The Last Quarter takes place in the sign of Pisces on the 6th of June. The Waning Moon causes us to slow down and draw inward once again. It's a time to tie up loose ends and finish up what we can towards our goals.
The Last Quarter Moon in Pisces may cause you to feel more sensitive and emotional than usual. Your intuition increases as Pisces brings out your natural empathic abilities. You may feel more receptive towards the feelings and emotions of others.
The card pulled for this week is the Strength card. Practice strengthening your own psychic abilities and empathic senses.
The lunar energy this week can help strengthen your innate abilities. They will come in handy in the future! Practice building energetic walls to block and protect you from negative energy. Creating energy orbs and meditating with crystals can help strengthen your hand chakras. Desert rose selenite, blue obsidian and clear quartz would be great crystals to work with this week.
Happy New Moon!
The major theme of this Honey Moon cycle appears to be focus, especially in the beginning of the cycle. This Full Moon holds great potential for productivity and prosperity while also expanding our vision for the future.
Don't forget to check back here on the Full Moon for our Honey Moon Ceremony! We will do out best to post a few days before the Full Moon so you can be sure to have all the supplies. It's a good thing Lunar Energy lasts 3 days surrounding the Lunar event.
