New Moon in Taurus – May 18, 2015

New Moon in Taurus – May 18 2015 at 12:13 am EDT

New Moons bring the energies for new types of beginnings. The previous New
Moon in Aries, stimulated us to make plans and take first steps in a new
direction. Now, with both Sun and Moon in earthy Taurus, this is a great
time to take practical actions for self-care and home improvements. Taurus
simulates the senses. Now’s the time to plant your garden, fill the house
with flowers and wonderful cooking aromas.

Venus in Cancer

Venus, ruler of Taurus, is in the sign of home-loving Cancer, and is in
harmony with spiritual Neptune from May 15-18. This wonderful combination
is available for creative expression – especially with music – to play an
instrument, sing, or attend a concert. Venus conjunct Neptune stimulated
our creative imagination. It’s a great time for dreaming our dreams and
visioning positive outcomes for the future.

Later this month – May 20-26 – Venus with be in stressful relationships
with Pluto and Uranus. Venus opposite Pluto can bring tension to
relationships and finances. You may be feeling pressured by others. It’s
important not to get hooked into power struggles.

Venus squaring Uranus can bring sudden shifts in relationships. Freedom
loving Uranus can upset the status quo in personal and business
relationships. This may free us up to authentically express ourselves. It
can be temporarily uncomfortable for as we change, the dynamics of our
relationships will change.

Mercury Retrograde (May 19 – June 11, 2015)

I’ve heard from a number of people, this past week, who have already been
experiencing the effects of these retrograde energies. They’ve had major
challenges including confusing travel plans, software program overloads and
crashes, missed meetings, phones suddenly disconnecting. So – please back
up all your files, check and double check travel plans and meeting times
and, if possible, wait until a week after the end of the retrograde period
to sign any important documents.

There are also benefits during a retrograde period. Mercury retrograde
brings the opportunity to review plans and documents before implementing
changes. It’s also a time for inner work – reviewing these past months and
reflecting on any lessons learned. Journaling can be very fruitful in
opening up to new insights.

Pluto moves Retrograde: April 17 – September 24, 2015

Pluto is the Lord of the underworld – the world of our subconscious
thoughts, feelings and dreams. During this retrograde period, Pluto invites
us to explore and transform old wounds – mentally, emotionally and
spiritually. It’s a time for healing – freeing ourselves up from old
resentments, beliefs, and negative thought patterns that are stifling our

May you find pleasure in planting new seeds in your lives!

Keep looking up!
