MAY 19, 2023

Dear Friends,

The New Moon in Taurus brings stability. You set your abundance intentions for the year. Taurus is all about what you have and what you need. Mercury has been in Taurus since April 3rd. Mercury was retrograde in Taurus from April 21st to May 14th. Mercury just went direct and is joining Uranus on June 4th then finish Taurus on June 11th. Plenty of time to work things out and get adjusted to what you are working on for stability. The New Moon in Taurus is helping us move forward with that promise. It is all about being able to count on what you are doing bringing what you need. Grounding and rejuvenation is promised with this New Moon.

A NEW MOON will occur on MAY 19, 2023 at 11:53 AM EDT 28 TAURUS 25 MINUTES.

THE SIGN TAURUS: The key phrase for Taurus is, “What do I have?” Taurus is concerned with getting results. Money, personal resources, security, survival skills, and self-esteem. To have the things around us that make us comfortable and reflect who we are. This sign builds. Where this sign is in your chart will indicate your sense of values, as well as where you are apt to be locked up in material values. Taurus rules the throat in the physical body.

THE DECANATE CAPRICORN: The sign of social responsibility. Build your foundations in the outside world. Its house describes where you are territory-conscious, where you need to feel secure. Here, you need respect, recognition, and approval from the outside world. The responsibilities and limitations encountered in this area of your life involve finding a responsible place and establishing security. The challenge for this house in your chart is perseverance and hard work. While things may not come easily here, efforts will be rewarded, if your energies are channeled constructively. Patience is necessary.


Venus, the ruler of Taurus, is in Cancer at the time of this New Moon. Comfort and security is the request of Venus. Every year on the New Moon in Taurus we set our abundance intentions for the year. It is so important, this year, for you to think very positively about your home and family goals. Uranus has been in Taurus since May 2018 waking us to what is necessary in these times. What we need to sustain ourselves is Taurus and Uranus is offering up new opportunities. This New Moon is joined with Uranus. Your intentions this year may be different than that in the past. Mercury and Jupiter are also in Taurus giving us food for thought. Good news coming from Jupiter for your abundance intentions for the year. Saturn is in Pisces letting us know that faith, trust and peace of mind are very valuable assets. Mars is in the last degree of Cancer showing the inevitably of some of our needs. Mars is favorable to Neptune in Pisces and to this New Moon.

This is a symbol of the cooperative wisdom by which men make their world their own, solving all its special problems through the simple communion of functions performed in a genuine division of labor. Here is emphasis on man’s discursive reason, or the balancing of the pros and cons in his mind as he works out his ideas with the general assistance of his fellows. There is high reward for the creative operations he is able to claim as peculiarly his own. The keyword is CAPABILITY. When positive, the degree is a recognized integrity as an outer sign of exceptional talents, and when negative, a willingness to putter away at tasks devoid of all personal meaning. “Sabian Symbols” Marc Edmund Jones.
