Taurus New Moon - A Springboard

"We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty."

— Maya Angelou

There are likely to be several 'bumps' in the road this week — frustrating challenges and obstacles — both before and after this Tuesday's Taurus New Moon (8:21 PM PDT 18° Taurus). There is still quite a bit of Aries energy in the atmosphere which helps to propel us forward but may also increase our impatience levels. Our wheels may spin if we aren't able to quickly get as much traction as we would like. Nonetheless, the New Moon, which sextiles Saturn, is quite powerfully grounded, suggesting a 'springboard' for future growth. Last month's Jupiter-Uranus conjunction is activated by the New Moon. The Moon conjuncts both Jupiter and Uranus following Tuesday's New Moon and then makes a sextile to Neptune, which is at the last degree of Pisces. The Moon-Neptune sextile foreshadows the upcoming, highly inspiring and creative Jupiter-Neptune sextile, which completes near the end of the month (May 23rd). Before the day is over on Tuesday, the Moon moves into Gemini to make a trine to Pluto. In essence, we get a remarkable creative 'jolt' from Tuesday's developments, propelling us forward with new strength and determination. The developments over the course of this new lunar cycle may bring some surprises but will be tangible and well-grounded. The support that is offered is unmistakable. Of course, any progress will still require plenty of 'heavy lifting'. Mercury returns to conjunct Chiron just before the New Moon, stirring significant idealistic intentions and producing a strong imperative to prove the value and importance of that idealism. Our connections to others are tested significantly as we begin to work with the new initiatives of the New Moon. Even though independence is paramount, we'll face extra challenges and struggles if we cut ourselves off from the input of others. The developing creative inspiration needs collaborative interaction in order to be fully realized. Our intuition may be telling us that there is a breakthrough 'just around the corner' but we still need to pay attention to how we lay the groundwork — make the necessary connections in order to be prepared. The Sun will follow the Moon to conjunct Uranus and Jupiter next week. This week's 'creative tension' will produce breakthroughs next week. Even if we can't quite see how things will 'break loose' next week, we need to stay focused, pay attention, and 'watch the road'.

There is a surge of energy and enthusiasm on Sunday but distractions creep up on us. We may disregard information that will later prove to be important. Our 'wheels spin' on Monday but we don't get far. There are some hurdles to overcome before we can understand how to direct our energy. Tuesday's New Moon offers a powerful springboard for future growth. We are looking for ways to prove the value of our idealism in tangible, material ways. We get another boost of energy and enthusiasm on Wednesday that is better grounded than before. We need to find ways to collaborate and interact with others in order to make the most of the energy. Determination is strong on Thursday but it isn't easy to maintain a steady sense of direction. It is important to 'prepare the ground' for future progress. Our connections to others are tested on Friday. We may feel fearful or suspicious. Frustrations reach a peak at midday on Saturday. Some will withdraw while others find ways to use the energy more effectively to move forward.
