The May 15th New Moon falls in the earth sign of Taurus and is paving the way for some big cosmic shifts and changes.
New Moons are always a time of new beginnings, and this is one of the most potent new beginnings we will be experiencing all year. This is not just due to the New Moon energy, but also because Uranus shifts into Taurus on the same day.
Whenever we have a big planet like Uranus shifting signs, it brings a new energy to work with and this is especially true seeing as the New Moon is in the sign of Taurus as well.
Taurus energy is all about finding security and stability, especially when it comes to our health, family, and money.
While seeking security from external things is sometimes necessary, true security and safety comes from within, and it also comes through accepting that nothing is ever guaranteed to anyone.
You can love but still lose, you may eat healthy but still fall sick, you may play it safe but still somehow find yourself in danger.
In life, the only guarantee is change, and learning how to accept the changes that come your way is what this New Moon new beginning is all about.
Everything in life has its own start and its own end. Even you. Every day we experience birth and death, every moment we experience the constant flow of change.
Sometimes changes in life can be small and go unnoticed, and other times they can be big and rattle everything we once knew and believed. But this is life. And getting comfortable with change is the most powerful thing you can do.
Under this New Moon energy and under the shifting energy of Uranus, it is going to become more and more important to focus on creating stability in your life through the acceptance of change.
Essentially, feeling stable is about knowing that nothing is stable and learning how to be ok with this!
When we surrender to change, when we surrender the to death and rebirth energy of life, when we can understand that everything is temporary, that is when we can truly find our peace, and truly find security.
The shifts that come along with May’s New Moon may bring sudden changes into our lives, or if change has recently occurred, we may be guided to really reach a new level of acceptance and understanding.
The best way to navigate through this energy is to practice acceptance and to stay present in the moment.
When change comes it can be normal to worry about the future, or to get anxious about what is going to happen next, but by simply focusing on things moment to moment and surrendering to whatever comes your way, can help you to regain a sense of peace.
We are co-creators on this planet, and while we may not have control over everything that comes our way, we do have control over how we feel, think, and act.
By focusing on what is in our control, rather than what is not, and by becoming aware of our feelings, thoughts, and actions, we can feel more at peace with our lives and open up to new possibilities.
Fighting change is never going to work, instead opening to it and trying to accept it as best as you can is always going to lead to a more positive outcome.
Along with bringing changing energy, this New Moon also brings a wave of creativity too.
Whenever change is flowing in your life, it represents a time of heightened creativity, and a time where you can take this new information or new set of life circumstances and create something new.
By focusing on the new instead of fighting for the old, you can open your heart and mind to things that you may have not noticed before and create a new reality for yourself.
Under the May New Moon and Uranus’ move into a new astrological sign, we are all going to be guided to activate and accept change in order to feel secure. We are also going to be able to tap into our creativity in order to open to the new possibilities that change brings.
“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like” –Lao Tzu
