New Moon in Taurus ~ May 19, 2023

My May 2023 Forecast shares:

May 19 New Moon in Taurus, 11:53 a.m. Eastern US time. The Sabian Symbol for this New Moon is: “(TAURUS 29): TWO COBBLERS WORKING AT A TABLE. KEYNOTE: The two-fold character of man’s mature understanding.” On a personal note, this New Moon exactly conjuncts my Midheaven. On a collective note, we’re asked to cultivate a more nuanced and mature perspective. Beware of black or white thinking. The answer falls somewhere between extremes. We can integrate differences and cooperate for better overall results.

May 19, 2023, 11:53 a.m., Washington, D.C.

We’ve got the Sabian Symbol of TWO COBBLERS WORKING AT A TABLE. In Faery Lore, cobblers are code for shamanism and the ability to walk in two worlds. Nuts and bolts Saturn remains in dreamy Pisces, urging us to bring those dreams into reality. In addition, Neptune in Pisces closely sextiles the New Moon in Taurus, and this brings even more awareness of two worlds. The old world continues to dissolve, but the new world hasn’t quite materialized yet.

My video goes into more detail about collaborations, partnerships and potential romantic connections revealed or triggered by this New Moon. Since I’ve covered all that in the video, this written post will look at more of the geopolitical and general implications.

At the time of the New Moon, Venus loosely conjuncts the US natal Sun. Our values as a nation shift towards protecting home and family. We could see border issues intensify, especially with the massive T-square in effect among Jupiter in early Taurus, square Pluto in early Aquarius, with Mars completing the T-square from early Leo the very next day. This T-square is already in effect even with Mars in late Cancer at the exact New Moon. Mars often acts early, and he’s already in a tight orb of the T-square.

All of this combines with Venus conjunct the US natal Sun (love of home and the US identity as a nation), creating big (Jupiter) power struggles (Mars opposite Pluto). We’ve got a powder keg of intensity, and Mars lights the fuse. Fortunately, the influence of Saturn and Neptune in watery Pisces turns some of those explosions into duds. The earthy Taurus energy also puts out some flames. Even though Mars activates the T-square, in terms of the New Moon, he offers a supportive sextile. This implies that the God of War is also focused on action to manifest the new, dreamy future.

Change is coming–for sure–but it won’t be as volatile as it could have been in all Air and Fire signs.

This New Moon in Taurus quincunxes (150 degrees) the Galactic Center, turning that intense energy into labor pains. With Pluto involved, we’ve got death and rebirth. With the Galactic Center involved, we’ve got Cosmic Goddess energy birthing the new world into being. At the same time, asteroid Aphrodite conjuncts the Galactic Center, also quincunxing the New Moon. My video gets into the Venus aspects (both current and future) with the May 19th event, but Aphrodite is the Greek equivalent of Venus. Regardless of what seems to be happening, we’ll feel major undercurrents of love and beauty.

The New Moon closely conjuncts the Plutino Mors-Somnus. If that name reminds you of death and sleep, you’re not imagining things. Mors is a Roman God of Death, and Somnus is the Roman God of Sleep. We’ve got a connection of dreams, sleep and death. Mors-Somnus is a binary system, so again we find this idea of collaboration (like the cobblers). Partnership, collaboration and shared resources have been ongoing themes since April. The addition of Mors-Somnus increases both the Plutonian and Neptunian energies at the time of the New Moon. Things could feel extra deep and surreal at this time.

Asteroid Phaeton also conjuncts this May 19th New Moon in Taurus, and in mythology, Phaeton was the charioteer, as in “Chariots of the Gods.” In astrology, Phaeton is a bridge or “messenger of the gods.” It used to be a planet, which got destroyed and broke into asteroids. Pay attention to cosmic messages that come through, as the portals are wide open right now. As mentioned in my video, even though this is not an eclipse, it might feel like one due to the intensity. At the same time, this intensity receives an extra dose of the weird. Any losses could seem orchestrated or dreamlike. Power struggles could feel like fighting in two different realms.

We can expect increased awareness of both negative and positive potentials that bleed through from other realms. Follow your intuition and tend to your own vibration! It’s easy to slip between the cracks at this time. We have powerful potential for change, and so much of this change could be divinely inspired beauty, harmony and grace. But the battles for our attention and emotions rage on. Consciously choose where to focus your own energy. We can’t control larger forces, but we can influence things to receive “a glancing blow” or “a catapult forward” instead of getting clobbered.

I feel strongly that this time period connects with the Fall 2019 dream I shared towards the end of my April 5-6 Libra Full Moon video. In that dream, I overheard a conversation between my Aunt Gail and my sister Erica, discussing “special mandala shaped floors that tip to get everyone where they need to be in the event of an earthquake.” I overheard this conversation twice, and it directly related to the kinds of 5D relationships, partnerships and collaboration’s I keep seeing unfold in this ready-to-be-birthed reality.

In addition to all the other wild synchronicities and precognitive dreams pointing to this week as massively significant–hundreds of dreams about current times, with dozens of them pointing specifically to this week–my Aunt Gail (whose name means “gale” or “great wind”) just happened visit my sister (whose name means “supreme ruler”) for the first time in ages. For me, that’s another indicator that we’re rapidly approaching “go time.”

As Timothy Glenn and I discussed in our recent Pluto Rx + May 2023 Forecast video, we might see a series of lesser tremors instead of “The Big One” all at once. If so, count your blessings. The level of potential volatility this week gets buffered by Venus, the Galactic Center, and Taurus, Cancer and Pisces energies. Labor pains can be intense, but they’re also exciting. Something new is being birthed by all those “earthquakes.” Ride the shudders and waves. Sometimes painful events and hard labor release the greatest blessings.

Jupiter and New Moon in Taurus

Happy Mother’s Day to all the mom’s out there!

Today initiates a wild week of astro weather. Mercury stations Direct on the 14th (today), and then Jupiter makes a bold move into Taurus on the 16th, squaring Pluto in early Aquarius. We’ve got a potent New Moon on the 19th, and then Mars enters Leo on the 20th, triggering a massive T-square with Pluto and Jupiter.

I’ve been dreaming of this time period–and this date in particular–since 2020. We’re talking many hundreds of dreams, with over a dozen specifically pointing to this week. I don’t know what that means, but since this video’s already done, I’ll post it now. I’m hoping to do a written post about the New Moon in Taurus, but that will depend on timing outside my control. For now, here’s some of what you can expect this week and beyond:

April 2022 Forecast and Second Quarter North Node Horoscopes

APRIL 2022 FORECAST

The signature transit for all of April 2022 is the Jupiter/Neptune conjunction in Pisces, which goes exact on April 12. Although Jupiter and Neptune conjunct every 13 years or so, they last conjuncted in Pisces on St. Patrick’s Day 1856. With both planets co-ruling Pisces, this expansive, buoyant, and dreamy meeting is as big and nebulous as Pisces gets. It helps to keep in mind both positive and negative potentials of any transit.

Depending on our level of spiritual awareness — and where this transit hits our own natal chart — we might experience immense hope, returning faith and a huge sense of the bigger picture. On the other hand, the pull to check out will also peak. Jupiter expands whatever he touches, so this Piscean party with Neptune brings potential for big addictions, especially to alcohol and opiates. Not that you ever want to drive drunk, but this month would be a really bad time to get behind the wheel. Increased fentanyl overdoses would not surprise me either, especially when people don’t even realize they’re taking it. Optimistic Jupiter can lead to overconfidence in all areas.

On a more positive note, this whole month brings extra powerful insights from dreams and meditation. Given the thin veil between different levels of reality, synchronicities and manifestation will flow faster than usual. As a new world reveals itself, that which no longer serves begins to fade away. “Surrender and release” will serve you well. Trust in the beauty and rightness of a larger unfolding story. When in doubt, aim for compassion, good will, and spiritual inspiration. Pray for discernment. Why settle for drippy platitudes of luv-n-lite when you can immerse yourself in the highest expression of Divine Love and Light?

April begins with a New Moon in Aries and ends with a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Taurus on Beltane Eve. Below you’ll find more details about this surreal and magical month, as well as new Second Quarter North Node Horoscopes.

April 1 New Moon in Aries, 2:24 a.m. Eastern US time. This New Moon heightens questions of Cosmic Order and Divine Will vs. social order and human will. Natural healing recognizes that some things supersede the ego. As Carl Jung reminds us, “Free will is doing gladly and freely that which one must do.” This New Moon activates a conjunction among the Sun, Mercury and Chiron in Aries. See more details on the 2nd when the conjunction goes even more exact.

April 2 Sun conjunct Mercury and Chiron in Aries. A powerful day to shine light on old wounds and understand them in a new way. Mercury rules communication, but also how we organize and process information. What story do you continue to tell about yourself and your history? How might you re-frame this story into one that shifts you beyond the Wound to become a Wounded Healer?

April 3-5 Mars conjunct Saturn in Aquarius. A good time to realize how “delay leads to delight.” Limitations encourage innovative solutions. Instead of complaining, turn the situation upside down and inside out. You can git ‘er done — just not the old fashioned way. As Joseph Campbell said, “Follow your bliss and don’t be afraid, and doors will open where you didn’t know they were going to be.”

April 5 Venus enters Pisces. The Love Goddess joins Jupiter and Neptune in Pisces, bringing extra beauty and riches, whether spiritual, earthly or both. Grace, harmony and artistry arise with little effort. A great time to write poetry, paint, and get a makeover. The next four weeks increase romance and soften hearts.

April 10 Mercury enters Taurus. Communication slows down. We need time to process information we’ve already acquired. Mind and body work together, so pay attention to physical cues. Adjust your self talk to be more supportive of your self-esteem. The next 19 days offer support to shift your inner dialogue around food. No pressure: you’ll get more practice in late May through mid-June when Mercury retrogrades through Taurus. Spoken intentions go further when you incorporate your body.

April 12 Jupiter exactly conjunct Neptune in Pisces. As mentioned above, the energies of this transit permeate the entire month, but today the conjunction goes exact. A boundless day of extra thin veils, dream logic and synchronicity.

April 14 Mars enters Pisces. The Fiery Warrior feels adrift in Watery Pisces. The next forty days nudge us to go with the flow. The easiest way through aligns our will with a Higher Power. We’ll progress, but we can expect synchronous and oddly perfect detours. What first appears as a “random delay” will reveal itself as necessary in the bigger picture. When in doubt, ask for dream guidance: “What do I need to know or do? Give me something helpful, obvious and true.”

April 16 Full Moon in Libra, 2:54 p.m. Eastern US time. Also known as the Wind Moon, this Full Moon could portend “a change in the wind.” Pluto in Capricorn squares the Sun and Moon, adding depth and a shadow element to the axis of cooperation and partnership (Libra) vs. self-interest and leadership (Aries). How do power struggles, subconscious patterns and corruption disrupt peace and personal sovereignty? How might art, song and/or poetry help to transcend such friction and move into a more beautiful co-creation?

April 17 Mercury conjunct Uranus in Taurus. The Messenger and the Rebel meet with a supportive sextile from Venus in Pisces. Breakthroughs in communication encourage us to look at a bigger picture. This new understanding offers liberation from prior limitations related to self-esteem, finances, and creativity.

April 19 Sun enters Taurus. The next month brings extra focus on Earth, finances, and our physicality. With the transiting North Node and Uranus in this sign, light shines on collective destiny and human evolution. “Little by little, one travels far.”

April 27 Venus conjunct Neptune in Pisces. Unconditional and ideal love permeate this transit. A good time to practice forgiveness and random acts of kindness. Romance and creative inspiration run high. Ask your dreams for insights about relationships, money and self-esteem. Allow yourself to dazzle.

April 29 Mercury enters Gemini, and Pluto stations retrograde in Capricorn until October 8, 2022. As Mercury enters one of his home signs, we can expect communication and negotiations to speed up, but Pluto says, “Not so fast. Let’s get to the bottom of things.” The next five months urge us to dig even deeper than we already have. Find the gems inside that hidden Shadow Realm. In mythology, Mercury/Hermes is the only god who can enter and exit the Underworld at will. All others need Pluto/Hades’ permission and an escort. Gemini amplifies Mercury’s shapeshifting and realm crossing abilities. Whenever you feel stuck, open your mind to other possibilities. Think both/and.

April 30 New Moon in Taurus Solar Eclipse 4:28 p.m. Eastern US time. This is a North Node eclipse, sextile Mars in Pisces and loosely conjunct revolutionary Uranus in Taurus. It’s also the traditional celebration of Beltane Eve. Venus (the Love Goddess and ruler of Taurus) also conjuncts Jupiter in Pisces, expanding the earthy, sensual connection of Beltane. Known as a Black Moon, the second New Moon in a month brings extra potent, magical energy. In the sign of the North Node on a day of very thin veils, this powerful Solar Eclipse points to our highest collective destiny and reminds us of the almost unbelievable — yet real and grounded — transforming Power of Love.

How April’s sky weather affects you will vary, depending on your entire natal chart, but your North Node Horoscope transcends monthly sky events. That’s because your North Node reveals what your soul came here to do. By midlife, the soul starts longing and pressing us to live our true purpose. At first, it whispers through intuition. Then it knocks a little louder through “coincidences” and external events. When not heard and honored, the soul’s longing can show up as health crises, marriage or work issues, or wondering “is this all there is?” If you feel a need to reinvent yourself, following North Node guidance helps you do that authentically — for you.

Unlike generic Sun Sign horoscopes, which ignore so many other aspects, following North Node guidance will always lead you in the right direction. Doors open, healing happens, relationships improve, and life gets more magical. This quarterly column will help you tap into your personal North Node Mojo. When you start living your North Node purpose, we all win, because you not only begin to light up your own life. You light up the world.     

You can find your North Node sign here which is often different than your Sun sign. If you’re right on the cusp, consider both possibilities or book a reading for more clarity.

SECOND QUARTER 2022 NORTH NODE HOROSCOPES

ARIES NORTH NODE: April 2022 emphasizes healing for Aries North Node natives. Things you’ve wondered about for a long time could finally make sense and allow you to start moving beyond old patterns. May highlights relationships. As always, you’ll need to balance your own needs while resisting the urge for co-dependence. Your faith and confidence expand as Jupiter enters Aries on May 10. He’ll remain in Aries over five months, until October 28th, when he returns to Pisces until the end of the year. Pay attention to lucky breaks, financial windfalls, and opportunities to do something BIG. Your sign’s ruler, Mars, enters Aries on May 24. From late May-July 5, you get extra energy and drive. A good time to take action on anything that ignites your passion.

TAURUS NORTH NODE: The Sun shines on Taurus North Node natives from April 19-May 20. You’ll be extra impacted by the powerful New Moon Solar Eclipse in Taurus on April 30. With the North Node in your sign, you can expect deep insights and inner and outer course corrections. Pay attention to coincidences that seem like signs. They are! May brings opportunities for breakthroughs, but Mercury will be retrograde in Taurus from May 22-June 3. If things feel like “Hurry up and wait,” just go with it. You don’t need to push. Trust that everything will come together at the perfect time and pace. If your past issues flare around the May 16 Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio, don’t overreact to that either. You got this. Use June to recharge your batteries.

GEMINI NORTH NODE: Second Quarter 2022 asks you to do old things in new ways. Your perspective flip flops, and that is A-OK. You can “master” hard energies by opening yourself to paradox. Instead of chaining yourself to prior expectations, embrace the freedom to go with an ever evolving flow. Mercury, your sign’s ruler, enters Gemini on April 29 and goes retrograde in Gemini from May 10-22, when he re-enters Taurus for awhile. Mercury returns to Gemini with more information and better deals on June 13, followed by Love Goddess Venus on June 22. You’ll get the most from this quarter by following where synchronicity and curiosity lead. You’re awakening to new levels of communication, including from animals, crystals, and telepathic downloads. Don’t work too hard, Gemini. Distractions and play time are good for you.

CANCER NORTH NODE: You need downtime: puttering around the house, taking baths, and nurturing yourself with TLC. It’s OK to narrow your inner circle and focus on what matters most to you and your closest loved ones. You’ll find safe passage in this crazy world by tending to your own vibration and learning to accept help from unexpected quarters. You’re so good at running the show, but sometimes you just need to curl up in your jammies and binge watch Rom Com’s with a bowl of popcorn. Allow the watery energies of April to wash over you, and then take May to process the cleanse. By Solstice on June 21, you’ll be re-balanced and ready to face the world again. Commit to a more sustainable flow of giving and receiving. Your next cycle begins with the June 28 New Moon in Cancer.

LEO NORTH NODE: A surprisingly intense quarter, considering nothing’s in your North Node sign. Intense can be good, provided you lean into it. Eclipse Season squares the Leo-Aquarius nodal axis: a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Taurus on April 30, followed by a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio on May 16. Squares generate friction, which leads to pearls under the right circumstances. With the collective nodal axis in Taurus-Scorpio, these events initiate even greater shifts. If it feels time to release something old, just do it. Letting it go on your own terms feels better than life ripping it away from you. These cosmic course corrections open pathways for new, more aligned connections and activities. If you embrace the Second Quarter pressure to change, you’ll position yourself well for Third Quarter breakthroughs.

VIRGO NORTH NODE: Wow, have you got a chance to realign and reset! Love energies abound, with supportive, destiny level energy from the collective nodal axis. Whenever you feel overwhelmed, focus on small details and daily rituals. April will feel surreal, but resistance is futile. If you open yourself to the cleansing energies, you can wash away lifetimes of old crud. Virgo loves cleanliness and order. Once the waters recede, you can reground yourself in a new physical and emotional landscape. Things are not as they’ve appeared. Take time to observe your new surroundings. This quarter’s Mercury Retrograde from May 10-June 3 will redo your worldview. The first part presents challenges to your communication and understanding, but the later part supports reintegration of old and new information. A breakthrough quarter!

LIBRA NORTH NODE: Second Quarter 2022 is a time of gathering energy and messages for later in the year. Libra North Node natives get activated by the energies, but in subtle, rather than obvious ways. Be mindful of burnout. You don’t need to run the fastest race in order to succeed. You’ll move further by mixing activity with rest and camaraderie. Share your victories with others of like mind, but don’t broadcast every move. Keep intentions close to your vest, because things are percolating. You don’t know where or how they will wind up — and that’s a good thing! This is not a time to charge ahead. It’s a time to gather energy and wait for the right timing and energetic support. Pay attention to little signs and synchronicities, especially ones that involve other people. Patience is a virtue worth your time and energy.

SCORPIO NORTH NODE: Quantum leaps are possible for those willing to align with Destiny. With the South Node transiting through your North Node sign, you’re 180 from most of the world, but hey, the world’s insane right now. Up is down, inside’s out. Face the darkness: it will bring you Light. The powerful eclipses on April 30 and May 16 activate Scorpio North Node natives in extra potent ways. Issues of intimacy, security and regeneration arise. Seize this chance to drop the victim role. You are so much more than the stories you keep telling. Reclaim your power, so your body, mind and spirit can be reborn. April allows you to wash away anything that no longer serves. You’ll find it easier to release those things you’ve held onto out of fear or habit. Enter the Void. It’s so much fuller than you think!

SAGITTARIUS NORTH NODE: Second Quarter 2022 feels magical for Sagittarius North Node natives. The inner work you’ve done for the past two years continues to bear fruit. Your only direct activation occurs on the June 14 Full Moon in Sagittarius, but this whole quarter brings opportunities your way. Pay attention to the things you love, but also to opposition. Contrast helps you gain more clarity about that which you do want. You’ll find your True North by following where passion leads. Consider taking — or teaching — a class this quarter. You have lots of tools, but you benefit from higher learning. Dabbling is soooo South Node Gemini! You’ll enjoy honing your expertise. If you haven’t traveled anywhere this year, remedy that ASAP. If can’t physically go somewhere, you can get lost in an epic film, novel or documentary.

CAPRICORN NORTH NODE: With all the supportive energy coming from Pisces and Taurus, Second Quarter 2022 feels magical for Capricorn North Node natives. Finances and relationships flow, and it feels easier to bring spiritual visions into tangible reality. On June 21, the Sun moves into your South Node sign, Cancer. Pay attention to sudden insights about old contacts, patterns and ways of being. If these arise, it doesn’t mean you backslid; rather, it’s an opportunity to lay (fully) to rest that which no longer serves. Your hard work over the past few years neutralizes nostalgia for “the way things were.” You realize you can appreciate the old without hiding behind it. A new world awaits, and Cappy’s lead the way by actively imagining and anchoring the New Earth frequencies.

AQUARIUS NORTH NODE: Eclipse Season squares the Aquarius-Leo nodal axis, and Saturn continues his 2.5 year stint in Aquarius — even longer if you count his initial foray there from March 21-July 1, 2020. The transiting nodal axis also continues to square the Aquarius-Leo nodal axis, and this friction urges a need for destiny level change. You’re being asked to move from the personal ego (Leo South Node) to group consciousness. Whenever you get hung up on individual relationships and goals, you benefit from stepping back. How do sticky karmic ties inhibit you from expressing your zaniest, least conventional, most innovative and authentic self? How can you practice healthy non-attachment? This isn’t the same as rejection, but it allows you to complete your mission in a much greater process of Human Evolution.

PISCES NORTH NODE: One of the biggest transits of the year occurs throughout April in your North Node sign. Your sign rulers, Jupiter and Neptune, conjunct in Pisces for the first time in 166 years. Venus also spends much of the month in Pisces. These transits continue the sweeping (yet nebulous) destiny level shifts you’ve undergone since Neptune first entered Pisces in April 2011. Emotions range from huge satisfaction to world weariness to poignant nostalgia to safe passage directed by forces beyond your comprehension. As surreal as April feels, May might feel a bit edgy with squares from Gemini and Sagittarius. At the same time, you’ll continue to receive supportive energies from Taurus and Capricorn. Use this quarter to release rigidity and imagine a beautiful new life materializing from beyond.

New Moon in Taurus ~ May 11, 2021

In my May 2021 Forecast, I wrote:

May 11 New Moon in Taurus at 3:00 p.m. Eastern. Even more so than usual, this New Moon offers the promise of new life. Like the dove symbolizing the end of the Great Flood, this New Moon in Taurus promises rewards for those who manage to follow and maintain their faith amidst trying circumstances. If you’ve weathered the storm, remember to watch for rainbows.

I based this interpretation on the Sabian Symbol for 21°18’ Taurus. (Always round up for Sabian Symbols.) Here’s the full description for this degree of Sun and Moon:

PHASE 52 (TAURUS 22°): WHITE DOVE FLYING OVER TROUBLED WATERS.

KEYNOTE: The spiritual inspiration that comes to the individual in the overcoming of crisis.

Here also we are confronted with a symbol of guidance, and the dove flying over troubled waters reminds one of the story of Noah and the Ark. Noah met his and mankind’s crisis courageously and in complete obedience to God’s promptings. The test completed, he received the dove’s message. It is a message from the Holy Spirit announcing a new Dispensation. This symbolic scene can be applied to personal crises resulting from emotional upheavals or from the irruption of unconscious forces and impulses into the consciousness — if the crisis has been faced in the right spirit.

This second stage symbol is in contrast to the preceding one because here it is not the product of a culture, a “book,” but instead the rhythm of cosmic, God-ordained cycles that reveals its conclusive beat through a living and concretely significant sign — a REWARD TO THE FAITHFUL.

(See more Sabian Symbols by Dane Rudhyar here.)

In other words, keep the faith — whatever that means to you. If you’ve sensed something unfolding but don’t yet see solid proof, take the necessary steps available now. Continue to operate as if.

BLACK MOON LILITH

Black Moon Lilith closely conjuncts this New Moon, only a degree away. I highlighted Black Moon Lilith at the recent Scoprio Full Moon, and this New Moon in Taurus conjunct Lilith intensifies her relevance. From the Scorpio Full Moon post:

Black Moon Lilith — also in Taurus right now — also deals with issues of sexual abuse, human trafficking, the Shadow, sovereignty of the body, and power to vs. power over. …

I think of Black Moon Lilith as a female version of Pluto and Scorpio combined with Uranus. Like Pluto, she deals with taboo, shameful, and sexual topics, but like Pluto, the rewards of Lilith bring regeneration and a renewed natural state. Like Scorpio, Lilith wants true intimacy, but when she feels attacked, she reacts with a poison sting. Like Uranus, Lilith hates feeling restricted or censored. She wants to break free at any and all costs. Come hell or high water, restrained Lilith will fight chains and burn bridges.

It is possible to embrace and harness Black Moon Lilith energy, to reclaim it as a kind of Women Who Run with the Wolves natural empowerment … or the old hag turning into the fairy godmother or beautiful maiden once treated with respect.

Respect is key to calming Lilith.

If the April 29 Full Moon triggered any autoimmune reactions, Lilith behaviors, issues, or people in your life, this New Moon offers a chance to reset and renew. Repression only makes Lilith more volatile. Practice listening to the deep, dark, mysterious, and wild feminine within and around you. Use Earthy Taurus embodiment to ground and honor that energy.

MERCURY CONJUNCT NORTH NODE

At the time of the New Moon, Mercury the Messenger remains in close contact with the transiting North Node. This meeting offers new communication and understanding about our collective destiny.

Asteroid Tantalus exactly conjuncts the North Node, though, so any revelations will probably not go far enough. At least not yet. We get the word “tantalize” from Tantalus. No matter how much some people want to shout from the rooftops, the time is not yet ripe. If you have planets at or aspecting 9-12° Gemini, this could play out in personal ways. With the transiting North Node involved, it also very much pertains to the collective.

NEPTUNE AND PLUTO

Speaking of the collective, Neptune — the bigger picture planet of mysticism, the collective unconscious, illusion and disillusion — sextiles this New Moon from Pisces, while Pluto trines it from Capricorn. These supportive aspects offer deep and far ranging cosmic insights, but that Tantalus placement on the North Node keeps these collective insights somewhat nebulous and inarticulate.

Pay attention to intuition, dreams, deep feelings, and synchronicities. Always pay attention to these, but especially so around this New Moon. The information you surmise might not take tangible form or seem relevant just yet, but some of it will prove valuable by the June 24 Full Moon. Taurus energy takes awhile to unfold. When it finally does come into being, you can count on it.
