Taurus New Moon Cycle (May 5 – June 3, 2008)


Each New Moon cycle is a time of new beginnings when we get to make a fresh start in the matters that rule the sign the New Moon is in.

The Taurus New Moon occurs on May 5 at 8:18 AM EDT. The Vernal Equinox marks the start of Spring; in Taurus Spring is in its splendor. This is because Taurus is the first earth sign, and is ruled by Venus, the planetary energy of beauty and attraction. Taurus energy is slow and steady, just the type of energy needed to persevere and get the job done. However, as a “fixed” sign, this energy can be stubborn and resistant to change.

Venus rules Taurus and Libra. The Taurus energy of Venus rules values – financial, material, and ethical. Being financially comfortable is what keeps Taurus energy content. With Venus in Taurus until May 24, this is a good time to enjoy earth’s beauty and engage your physical senses.

The New Moon’s energies influence the entire month. With Jupiter in Capricorn harmonizing with the Taurus New Moon, this is the time to work on ways to increase your professional standing, which in turn grows your net worth. Jupiter energy is prominent now as it moves retrograde* on May 9 until September 8. This is the time to refocus professional ambitions. Mars enters Leo, injecting a boost of self confidence to draw attention to your efforts.

In the USA, the New Moon and Mercury in Gemini (communications) highlight secrets and secret places. The media should be reporting on information Congress likes to shield from the public. Charities, hospitals, and prisons are also in the forefront. Stimulus spending will primarily go to pay down credit card debt. Housing values will continue to decline. Many homes are likely to be damaged from severe storms. Earthquakes are likely. USA Hotspots: New Jersey, NEW YORK/NYC, New Orleans, Western states, esp. Montana, Idaho, Nevada, ARIZONA, New Mexico. World Hotspots: northwestern Mexico, Ecuador, Peru, Brazil, Ireland, London, Turkey, Syria, IRAQ, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, India, central China, Burma, Thailand, Vietnam, Philippines, N. Korea, Tokyo, New Zealand.

From the May 5 New Moon to the May 19 Full Moon, the Moon is increasing in light. This is the time to start projects and make changes to be completed by the end of the cycle.

The First Quarter Moon occurs on May 11 at 11:47 PM EDT. The Moon in Leo is challenging the Sun in Taurus to come out and play. In the USA, the economic situation hasn’t really improved, but the stockmarket is likely to be happy with news of a modest upturn in housing. USA Hotspots: Idaho, Nevada, Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, eastern Texas. World Hotspots: Baja CA/Mexico, Lima, Brazil, Paraguay, Poland, Vienna, Turkey, SYRIA, Lebanon, Israel, Jordan, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, eastern Africa, AFGHANISTAN, PAKISTAN, China (BEIJING), Burma, Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines, Koreas.

We’ve reached half-time in the lunar cycle at the Full Moon on May 19, 2008 at 10:11 PM. If you want to announce or promote something to receive maximum attention, now is the time to do it! Emotions run high like the tides. This is the second Full Moon in Scorpio. In the USA, financial regulation is highlighted. Inflation rises, along with debt. USA Hot Spots: Northeast corridor (esp. PA & NY), Atlanta, Florida, Dakotas, Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada, CALIFORNIA, coastal Oregon and Washington. World Hot Spots: Mexico City, Lima, Rio/eastern Brazil, ENGLAND/London, Stockholm, TURKEY, SYRIA, JORDAN, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Algeria, Nairobi, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, China, Nepal, India, Philippines, JAPAN, Fiji.

Now the Moon is decreasing in light. Try to finish up projects before Mercury goes retrograde on May 26. The Last Quarter Moon occurs on May 2 at 10:57 PM EDT. The Sun and Venus have joined Mercury in Gemini, challenging the Moon in Pisces. This marks a time to review and reflect. In the USA, personal finances and debt continue to be in focus. Real estate appraises at a lower value. Work and health issues are the discussion topics. USA Hotspots: Minnesota, Iowa, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, Idaho, NEVADA, CALIFORNIA. World Hotspots: Guadalajara, BRAZIL, Sofia, Greece, Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Cairo, eastern Africa, IRAQ/BAGHDAD, Iran & Pakistan border, Afghanistan, China, Vietnam, Indonesia, Philippines, Koreas.
