The New Moon in Taurus 2023: Energy of Renewal and Reconnection
The New Moon in Taurus on May 19, 2023 has a rooting vibration, allowing us to re-balance our being and reconnect with a state of calm. We’ve been through a lot since the last lunar cycle and now we’re being given a moment to stop.
While this pause will give us an opportunity to focus there is an energy of great intensity flowing during this New Moon, activating our Solar Plexus Chakra and inviting us to reconnect with our power.
New Moon in Taurus 2023: Stability, Security and Transformation
The New Moon in Taurus marks the first lunar cycle since the Eclipse Season began.
With a new lunar cycle here the transformative and perhaps even chaotic energies of Eclipses begin to settle fading into the background of our lives.
Eclipses tend to bring change, awakening, transformation and change of direction. Our lives, or even our perspective can look very different since the Eclipses began on April 19.
Eclipses can drive great advances helping to accelerate our spiritual path forward. So, if you’re at a crossroads in limbo or in a completely new territory, the vibrations of this New Moon can help you gain a foothold and stabilize you.
Taurus is a sign associated with stability and security and that’s exactly what’s on offer under this New Moon. How can you create more security in your life? What steps can you take to feel more stable and secure with yourself?
Problems that arise at the time of this New Moon may be related to subconscious feelings of insecurity or lack of self-esteem. Pay attention to anything uncomfortable that comes up right now and see if your insecurities may be playing a role.
It’s good to practice delving into anything that makes you feel uncomfortable. Remember, feeling uncomfortable is a sign that you’re growing! When you face that feeling, you discover what its root is.
You don’t need to have all the answers, sometimes just having an awareness is enough. If you practice this throughout your life you’ll eventually find that fewer and fewer things bother you!
When we’re not constantly in a hurry when we’re not living from scarcity, when we’re connected to our true power, it’s hard to let insecurities enter us.
Life will always be in constant movement and change around us but our inner being is where we can truly create true and lasting security that will accompany us wherever we go.
The New Moon in Taurus and the Creation of Comfort
Taurus is ruled by the planet Venus which is linked to love, beauty, money, relationships and pleasure.
Absorbing some of the lighter vibrations of this zodiac sign can remind us to slow down and find the pleasure that comes when we take the time to stop and simply enjoy life.
What comforts you? What does the feeling of a warm embrace give you? What allows you to let your guard down and receive the warmth and support of the world around you?
These are profound questions but delve into these ideas during the New Moon in May. Work to give you a sense of comfort the way you know how to.
One useful thing to remember during this New Moon in Taurus is that we don’t need to look for great things. Small pleasures or simple indulgences can be just as effective, like that delicious piece of cake that reminds you of your grandmother a cup of tea on the patio or going to bed an hour earlier.
Allow yourself to slow down and stop and smell the roses whatever that means to you. Prioritize small pleasures and indulgences and watch your mood change.
The New Moon in Taurus and Our Cosmic Skies
Jupiter and Pluto will both be at zero degrees of their respective zodiac signs during this New Moon. Jupiter will be in Taurus and Pluto in Aquarius. This is a very powerful dynamic of energy that will travel through the cosmic skies and that will be enhanced by the energies of the New Moon.
Zero is considered a highly karmic degree of the zodiac and signals reaching that state of zero. This is the state of neutrality where nothing is dark and nothing is clear. In the zero states, we are One with all life. And in this zero state, creation occurs.
Jupiter and Pluto at zero unlock a powerful energy portal that we can use to manifest and create a new vision for our lives. We can direct this energy directly to our Solar Plexus Chakra to charge our feelings of purpose, power and inner strength.
For a moment, direct your attention to your Solar Plexus Chakra. This chakra is located at the zero point of our body, right where our navel is.
It emits a bright yellow light and is one of your most powerful connections to Source energy and your personal power. Step into this place for a moment and see your own inner sun radiating strong and bright.
The charge from our Solar Plexus can help boost our feelings of motivation helping us to inspire us to create a strong, grounded foundation for ourselves. We can rely on giving life to our intentions.
Charging the Solar Plexus can strengthen our stomach and digestive system helping us to assimilate and process not only the nutrients we consume but also the energy we are absorbing.
This New Moon in Taurus offers us an opportunity to create significant changes in our lives. With Jupiter and Pluto at zero degrees, we must harness this cosmic energy to manifest and materialize a new vision for our future.
It’s time to plant seeds of intention and work on building a solid foundation for our projects and goals.
It’s essential to remember that the Taurus energy invites us to seek stability and security in our lives. As we move toward our dreams, it’s important to find a balance between the drive for growth and the need for rootedness and stability.
Seeking comfort and pleasure in our daily lives will help us to stay connected to our goals and to find satisfaction in the process.
So during this New Moon in Taurus, take a moment to appreciate life’s small pleasures, find ways to create comfort and stability in your environment and work on strengthening your personal power through the connection with your Solar Plexus Chakra.
With this combination of energies, you can build a strong and lasting foundation for your future growth and success.
Remember that astrology offers us a guide but ultimately each of us has the power to shape our own destiny. Take advantage of this New Moon in Taurus as an auspicious time to work on yourself and on creating the life you want.
The New Moon in Taurus and Haumea, the Goddess of Fertility
Venus isn’t the only Goddess active during the New Moon in Taurus. The Hawaiian Goddess of Fertility, Haumea is in action forming a T-Quadrant with Jupiter, Mars and Pluto.
This will enhance the highly creative energies of the zero point but it will also create some tension.
When we have tensions like these, it’s usually a sign from the Universe that we need to act on something in our lives. When tensions get too strong, something has to give way to create more breathing space.
If you feel exhausted, overwhelmed or if something comes up during this New Moon, you may find yourself needing to release tension through movement. The movement can be subtle or forceful but creating more space for tension to flow will help bring relief.
T-Quadrants are known for being a challenging alignment but it’s in those challenges that we often make the best decisions and make beneficial changes in our lives.
With all this fertile energy coming from Taurus, Venus and Haumea, the creative and fertile energies that surround us will be enhanced. Work with this creative energy however it flows and take advantage of it to increase your chances of conception.
The New Moon in Taurus in general
The New Moon in Taurus in May 2023 brings several currents of energy to work with, however, most of us will benefit from attuning to the fundamental and stabilizing vibrations it offers.
We’ve been through a lot of transformative energies lately so having time to focus, take root and return to a state of neutrality will be beneficial. From this place, we can charge our powerful Solar Plexus area and manifest through our powers of creation.
