New Moon in Taurus (May 4): Setting Intentions around Communication
The New Moon in Taurus arrives on Saturday, May 4th, stimulating your conscious mind and awareness of environment. This can be about speaking out or interacting more with people close to you such as siblings and neighbors. Issues affecting local travel, writing, speaking, or teaching enterprises are also possible, depending on what you have going on.
This is an area that will be seeing some innovation, disruption, or unexpected shake-ups as Uranus passes through it during the next seven years. This long-term transit began on March 5, 2019 and lasts until April 25, 2026. We also had a preview when Uranus first dipped into Taurus from May 15 to November 6, 2018.
You can look to that time period and also consider how things have been developing in this area since March 5 for clues as to where this is going. Uranus by its very nature though aims to surprise, so the way that things are now is not necessarily the way they will be.
Regardless of how much rumbling you’ve had going on with your communications, May 4 offers an opportunity for you to set your intentions in this area.
Mercury, Venus, & Uranus in Tow
The planet Mercury represents the conscious mind, communications of all kinds, daily commutes and mundane affairs. He-she brings attention to this same area of your chart that is energized by the New Moon – that having to do with your communication and speaking engagements. Your thoughts and awareness are directed more toward learning and the immediate world around you. This is especially the case while Mercury is in Taurus, from May 6 to May 21.
Intensifying this focus is Venus – the planet of property and values, beauty and relationships. She’ll bring grace and bonding into your communications, from May 15 to June 8.
This year, Mercury and Venus encounter an unusual co-presence stirring up the unexpected in this area of your chart. That’s Uranus, who is just beginning a 7 year transit through Taurus. During this time you are likely to experience shake-ups and innovations in your way of broadcasting or sharing ideas. It could affect your relationship to siblings, cousins, and neighbors.
Special hot spot days to watch for this month are when Mercury and Venus each collide with this revolutionary stranger. Mercury conjoins Uranus in Taurus on May 8th, and Venus will do the same on May 18 – incidentally on the Full Moon.
Mars in Gemini and Cancer: Home and Creativity
Mars is the archetypal soldier and warrior. He governs our self will, activity, and ambition. For the first half of the month, Mars is in Gemini where he’s been since March 30. This is a more active and engaged, social Mars to deal with.
In this position, he can tend to reach in more than one direction. He can be capable of a great and nimble sort of multitasking in Gemini. Or you might feel split in a million different directions. For you, he’s been at work in your home life and housing situation. Mars will be here working here in your inner sphere until May 15.
From May 15 until June 26, Mars will be in Cancer. The hot-headed one can be a bit reactive in this sign, undeterred by other’s wills and driven by feeling. You could be shouting directions to save the life of Mars in Cancer, and he might ignore you in favor of his own gut understanding of what is right to do.
In your case, Mars is moving on mid-May to stimulate your creativity and pleasure sector. Your actions can be more directed towards having fun and enjoying the finer parts of life. You might actively strategize with your dating or creative needs now.
