New Moon Report for May 16th, 2007:


New Moon in Taurus, Wednesday, May 16th, 2007, at 3:27 PM EDT, at 25°33'.

The New Moon is a time of rebirth—a time when we are given a chance to start fresh. The New Moon in the sensual and contented sign of Taurus will occur on May 16th at 3:27 PM EDT.

What does this mean for you? The New Moon in Taurus presents an excellent time to commit to personal goals that express the positive energies of the sign of the Bull:

  • enjoy life's simple and physical pleasures—savor good food, enjoy activities that bring us in touch with nature and our bodies;
  • take the time to cultivate patience and to "stop and smell the roses" (which could easily be a Taurus motto);
  • re-evaluate our relationship with money and possessions and discover what it is that truly makes us happy and fulfilled;
  • dream up new ways of increasing our income or earning power;
  • concentrate on beautifying and pampering our homes, gardens, and...ourselves;
  • become more aware of our personal needs and wants, as well as our values.

This month's New Moon is quintile Jupiter and square Saturn and Neptune. New beginnings now may be the result of disillusionment or the need to face the reality of a situation. It's time to make some solid yet realistic plans, and to set the stage for reaping the rewards from our new beginnings, as little or big as they may be, in approximately two weeks' time after the Full Moon occurs.

One of Taurus "lessons" revolves around comfort and contentedness. We might look around us to see where we have been complicating our lives by our love-hate attraction to predicament and conflict. When was the last time we felt truly content and comfortable? Considering our personal needs and wants is not over-indulgent or selfish unless we take it too far. As well, knowing what it is that makes us feel comfortable and pleased improves our intimate relationships.

The New Moon will occur at 28 degrees and 41 minutes of Capricorn (25°33'). Where is that position in your own natal chart? Look to the affairs of that house for a more personalized meaning of the New Moon. Read more about the New Moon in the houses.


 


Previous Months' New Moon Reports:


New Moon in Capricorn, Thursday, January 18th, 2007, at 11:01 PM EST, at 28°Capricorn41'.

The New Moon is a time of rebirth—a time when we are given a chance to start fresh. The New Moon in the quietly ambitious, conservative sign of Capricorn will occur on January 18, 2007, at 11:01 PM EST.

What does that mean for you? The New Moon in Capricorn is a good time to commit to personal goals that express the positive energies of the sign of the Goat:

  • set practical, attainable goals;
  • work on developing maturity and common sense in the personality;
  • considering the future, and preparing for it;
  • focus on concrete ways of developing self- discipline and self-mastery;
  • give satisfying form to wishes;
  • make commitments and recognize responsibilities;
  • accept that we are limited, and that, ironically, some of our limitations truly free us to explore deeper dimensions of experience by offering us a secure foundation;
  • nurture our dreams in a realistic fashion.

With this potent Capricorn energy, we have the chance to create some serious order in our lives. This New Moon activates a Jupiter-Uranus square and occurs when Venus conjuncts Neptune. Creative business goals are especially favored. It's time to make some solid plans, and to set the stage for reaping the rewards from our new beginnings, as little or big as they may be, in approximately two weeks' time after the Full Moon occurs.

One of Capricorn's "lessons" is acceptance of the concept that reasonable boundaries and rules actually do offer us freedom--freedom from worry and chaos, for example. Setting goals for ourselves allows us to focus on what really matters.

The New Moon will occur at 28 degrees and 41 minutes of Capricorn (28°41'). Where is that position in your own natal chart? Look to the affairs of that house for a more personalized meaning of the New Moon. Read more about the New Moon in the houses.

 

New Moon in Sagittarius, December 20, 2006 at 9:01 AM EST, at 28° Sagittarius 33'.

The New Moon is a time of rebirth—a time when we are given a chance to start fresh. The New Moon in the adventurous, forward-looking sign of Sagittarius occurs on December 20, 2006, at 9:01 AM EST.

What does that mean for you? The New Moon in Sagittarius presents an opportune time to commit to personal goals that express the positive energies of the sign of the Archer:

  • increase our understanding and awareness;
  • muster up the courage to expand our horizons and branch out into new ways of thinking;
  • gain more confidence and optimism by focusing on the "big picture";
  • transcend the details of mundane existence;
  • work on positive thinking as a way of life;
  • take an exam, apply for or begin a new higher learning course, travel;
  • nurture faith, hope, and vision without overdoing our expectations.

We can too easily get lost in the details of mundane existence. With this potent Sagittarius energy, we can find ways to transcend these details of day-to-day life and nurture our faith, hope, and vision. Because Sagittarius thinks in big terms, we may have a tendency to overdo our expectations, especially with the New Moon conjunct Pluto. However, a healthy trine from Saturn gives us a dose of realism without pessimism, essentially keeping us in line. It's time to be a little more adventurous, and to set the stage for reaping the rewards from our braveries, as little or big as they may be, in approximately two weeks' time after the Full Moon occurs. It's a time when we can focus on some of the constructive traits of the sign of the Archer--optimistic, enthusiastic, adventurous, honest, outspoken, independent--and consider how to positively incorporate these qualities into our lives.

This month's New Moon is conjunct Pluto, the planet of regeneration and rebirth. As such, this month's New Moon will have more "oomph" and healing powers than usual. The adage "out with the old, in with the new" applies here. Letting go of self-defeating attitudes, and focusing on new visions that actually take you places (either mentally or physically), is in order.

The New Moon occurs at 28 degrees and 33 minutes of Sagittarius (9°Sagittarius33'). Where is that position in your own natal chart? Look to the affairs of that house for a more personalized meaning of the New Moon. Read more about the New Moon in the houses.


 

New Moon in Scorpio, November 20, 2006 at 5:18 PM EST, at 28° 27'.

The New Moon is a time of rebirth—a time when we are given a chance to start fresh. The New Moon in the passionate and regenerative sign of Scorpio will occur on November 20, 2006, at 5:18 PM EST.

What does that mean for you? The New Moon in Scorpio presents an opportune time to commit to personal goals that express the positive energies of the sign of the Scorpion:

  • take steps towards self-mastery and self-empowerment by tackling things that undermine us and that take away our power (compulsive behaviors, addictions, large debts);
  • understand that changes and endings are necessary for our soul growth;
  • work on learning to merge with another human being on an intimate level without feeling like we have lost ourselves;
  • instead of assuming that others do or should see life the same way as we do, learn to try to understand why others don't share the same values;
  • develop our personal magnetism by working on strength and depth of character;
  • release our fear of confrontations and of heavy emotional situations, recognizing that although they may be uncomfortable, these situations can lead us toward psychological healing;
  • take steps to manage and handle our shared resources with a partner (or ex-partner) in a more positive fashion.

Scorpio New Moons are generally good for working on our self-mastery skills. We may want to pinpoint the things in our lives that make us feel out of control, such as addictions and debts, and work on freeing ourselves of these emotional burdens. This New Moon cycle is also an opportune one in which to explore what is missing in our lives that leads us to engage in these self-destructive behaviors. This New Moon aligns with good luck Jupiter, but also squares Saturn. This cycle represents an opportunity to rid ourselves of the "junk" in our lives--material and spiritual. With this potent Scorpio energy, we have the chance to make important changes in our lives.

One of Scorpio's "lessons" involves learning to dig deeper into the mysteries around us instead of always being content with status quo. Taking the time to understand others' motives can enrich our feelings of intimacy, forgiveness, and sense of meaning. Scorpio also teaches us that dedication to one meaningful relationship or undertaking can be significantly more satisfying than spreading ourselves around. Here, "quality over quantity" applies. We might want to use this cycle to work on focusing on and developing one special project or relationship in order to help add purposefulness and depth to our lives.

The New Moon will occur at 28 degrees and 27 minutes of Scorpio (28°27'). Where is that position in your own natal chart? Look to the affairs of that house for a more personalized meaning of the New Moon. Read more about the New Moon in the houses.


 

New Moon in Libra, October 22, 2006 at 1:15 AM EDT, at 28° Libra 40'.

LibraThe New Moon is a time of rebirth—a time when we are given a chance to start fresh. The New Moon in the fair and compromising sign of Libra occurs on October 22, 2006, at 1:15 AM EDT.

What does that mean for you? The New Moon in Libra presents an opportune time to commit to personal goals that express the positive energies of the sign of the Scales:

  • build our negotiating skills without compromising our principles or needs, and without resorting to appeasement;
  • work on our tact and diplomacy by considering others' feelings;
  • slip into our partners' shoes and illuminate ourselves;
  • recognize our partners as teammates rather than adversaries;
  • make an effort to appreciate and understand our partnerships, and if we are unattached, make resolutions regarding our possible partnership needs;
  • find ways to bring balance, harmony, and grace into our environment.

A time of new beginnings, this New Moon occurs in the relationship-oriented sign of Libra, and one-to-one relationships is the focus. One-to-one relationships include romantic partnerships and marriages, business partnerships, very close friendships, and adversaries as well! Major developments in these areas are likely to occur over the course of the next month.

This New Moon brings fresh and creative energy into our lives, and more specifically, into our relationships. The Sun and the Moon align with Venus and Mars, indicating yin and yang energy brought together, and offering us a chance to come to agreement with ourselves and with others. This New Moon is about creative harmony. This is a vital, dynamic time when we thrive on progress and activity, as well as lively, creative, and sexual energy. Our creativity and desire to make something beautiful is stimulated now. Social relations are impassioned, and perhaps demanding as well. We may also feel compelled to do something creative or artistic. In some cases this impulsive energy generates "love at first sight" scenarios. Team work is more successful now and in the weeks to come. Some level of competition is present in our interactions, but it's likely of a pleasurable and gently challenging kind.

Some of Libra's "lessons" involve learning to make peace with those around us, as well as in our environments; establishing a sense of order and balance in our lives; learning to consider others' feelings and needs without resorting to appeasement; and recognizing the value of partnerships. This is an ideal time to work on these skills. Libra has an innate ability to, and love of, synthesizing opposites. Peace and harmony is the goal, but there's a fine balancing act involved along the way that requires some commitment and effort.

The New Moon will occur at 28 degrees and 40 minutes of Libra (28°Libra40'). Where is that position in your own natal chart? Look to the affairs of that house for a more personalized meaning of the New Moon. Read more about the New Moon in the houses.


 

New Moon Solar Eclipse in Virgo, September 22, 2006 at 7:45 AM EDT, at 29° 20'.

VirgoThe New Moon is a time of rebirth—a time when we are given a chance to start fresh. The New Moon in the analytical and humble sign of Virgo occurs on September 22nd, 2006, at 7:45 SM EDT.

What does that mean for you? The New Moon in Virgo presents an opportune time to commit to personal goals that express the positive energies of the sign of the Virgin:

  • build our powers of healthy, constructive discrimination;
  • roll up our sleeves and get down to serious work;
  • be pro-active, work constructively;
  • begin a new project that requires attention to details;
  • make lists, actively tick off completed activities, and take pride in our "little" accomplishments;
  • start a health regime, research nutrition and vitamins, and pay attention to our diet;
  • set up specific routines that will help us manage our lives in constructive and mindful ways;
  • learn the "power of now" and of mindfulness--focus on the present and learn to enjoy it without slipping into guilt from the past or worry about the future;
  • handle the "little" details of our day-to-day life in an organized, step-by-step fashion so that we can free our minds of clutter.

A time of new beginnings, this is an excellent time to formulate some goals regarding "all things Virgo". Concentrate on new ways to get your day-to-day life organized. Think about the keywords for this particular and earthy sign -- such things as analytical, intelligent, reserved, critical, helpful, conscientious -- and consider ways to incorporate these traits into your personality. With this potent Virgo energy, we have the chance to make important changes in our lives.

This New Moon Solar Eclipse squares Pluto, suggesting that deep, transformational change is required of us now. This is a time when we should build our powers of healthy, constructive discrimination; learn to be more pro-active; start a new health and fitness routine; set up specific routines that will help us manage our lives in positive, mindful ways; and learn the "power of now" and of mindfulness. This is a time when we can learn to master the "little" details of our day-to-day lives in a more organized manner so that we can free our minds of clutter. For some of us, circumstances are such that we need to pay more attention to our work and health routines.

Occurring in the last degree of the sign of Virgo, and with Pluto involved, flaws in an important system in our lives are revealed around the time of the eclipse and it's time to start fresh. We may find ourselves completely re-working this area of life. Virgo rules awareness of the body, making full use of resources, attention to details, organization, self-preservation skills, order, and critical analysis. Virgo sees flaws in systems, whether those systems are our daily routines or our bodies. Striving for perfection can be a wonderful challenge, as long as we don't allow ourselves to become overly focused on flaws and feel guilty or perturbed over them. This is where Pisces, Virgo's opposing sign, comes in to help. Compassion, and finding beauty in imperfection, is our path to balancing this energy, symbolized in the North Node's position in Pisces.

It's time to make some solid and realistic plans, and to set the stage for reaping the rewards from our new beginnings, as little or big as they may be, in approximately two weeks' time after the Full Moon occurs.

Some of Virgo's "lessons" involve learning to make sense of our lives by focusing on tangible, practical matters. If you've ever allowed such things as paying bills, handling paperwork, and organizing drawers or closets go to the wayside for an extended period of time, you've probably experienced some level of chaos (and the vague feeling of guilt that goes with it). Tackling piles of bills, handling emails as they come in, sorting through drawers and closets, and other such menial tasks is surprisingly relieving. Freeing our minds of unnecessary clutter is one of Virgo's lessons, and the New Moon in Virgo presents an ideal time to commit to such a task. Another important lesson that we can learn from Virgo is the art of discrimination. Virgo natives can sometimes be criticized for criticizing! Well-developed critical faculties, however, aid us to cut out some of the fluff or the chaos in our lives, and allow us to spot problematic situations. We all need to do a balancing act with regards to opening our minds to others and to situations, versus deciding what and who to cut out.

This is an excellent time to start (or re-commit to) a health and fitness regime or a new work project. It's also a good time to re-organize or to acquire a new pet.

With this potent Virgo energy, we have the chance to make important changes in our lives. This month's New Moon receives no major aspects, and quintiles Jupiter, leaving it largely unfettered. It should be fairly easy to start fresh.

New Moon in Leo, July 25th at 12:31 AM EDT, at 2° 07'.

Leo the Lion - New Moon in LeoThe New Moon is a time of rebirth—a time when we are given a chance to start fresh. The New Moon in the proud and warm sign of Leo will occur on July 25th, 2005, at 12:31 AM EDT.

What does that mean for you? The New Moon in Leo presents an opportune time to commit to personal goals that express the positive energies of the sign of the Lion:

  • build our self-confidence by discovering our paths as distinct individuals, and express ourselves confidently;
  • uncover our unique creative powers;
  • make a conscious effort to deal with others in a more personal, involved, and loving manner, rather than falling back on reason and intellect which detaches us from our feelings;
  • begin a new romance--whether that's with a person or a creative hobby--or re-commit to our enjoyment of an existing romance;
  • commit to adding more leisure time and "play" time to our lives;
  • allow ourselves to assert our individuality by taking an educated risk;
  • allow our "inner child" to come out and play;
  • commit to plans related to games, sports, recreation, speculation, hobbies, children, romance and dating.

Some of Leo's "lessons" involve taking pride in ourselves as unique individuals, assuming responsibility for our lives, and giving ourselves warmly and generously to others. This New Moon period is an excellent time to meditate upon some of the characteristics of Leo. Think about the keywords for this self-expressive fire sign -- such things as proud, magnanimous, generous, hospitable, caring, warm, authoritative, active, and open -- and consider ways to incorporate these traits into your personality. We all have Leo somewhere in our charts. Seek this month to improve those areas of life. It's time to awaken the "inner child" in ourselves and to find ways to creatively express it.

New Moon in Cancer, June 25th, 2006 at 12:05 PM EDT, at 3 58.

The New Moon is a time of rebirth—a time when we are given a chance to start fresh. The New Moon in the gentle and nurturing sign of Cancer will occur on June 25, 2006, at 12:05 PM EDT.

What does that mean for you? The New Moon in Cancer presents an opportune time to commit to personal goals that express the positive energies of the sign of the Crab:

  • feed our foundation: all of that which we call "home", including the foundation we have built inside of ourselves, needs to be tended to and honored;
  • pay attention to our instincts, our deepest needs, and our feelings;
  • recognize the importance of our family and our personal circle of friends and the security, sense of belonging, and safety we derive from them;
  • get in touch with our vulnerability and our needs for intimacy, as well as opening ourselves up to accepting support from others;
  • offer and show support for others, without a hidden agenda;
  • begin a new project that involves improving the home itself, or improving domestic life in general.

With this potent Cancer energy, we have the chance to make important changes in our lives that will benefit us well beyond this Moon cycle. This month's New Moon trines Jupiter and forms a tense aspect with Neptune, suggesting big, idealistic plans that may not be entirely realistic, but that certainly make us feel good. It's time to make some plans, as realistic as possible, and to set the stage for reaping the rewards from our new beginnings, as little or big as they may be, in approximately two weeks' time after the Full Moon occurs. We should take into consideration that our plans may be bigger than our capabilities. Even if we fall a little short, we should remember that we did in fact make some progress. Concentrate on new ways to enhance family life and domestic affairs, and to build up your feelings of security and safety.

Some of Cancer's "lessons" involve learning to feed our souls, to honor our innermost feelings, and to get in touch with our vulnerability and dependency on others. We are reminded of our support system and our need for a sense of safety and security. If we focus too much on achieving our career objectives at the expense of building a solid sense of personal satisfaction, we eventually become ineffective both personally and professionally. Why? Because our push for results on a professional level will not bring us long-term success if we don't know what it is we need for ourselves on a personal level.

New Moon in Gemini, May 27, 2006, at 1:25 AM EDT at 5° 48.

Gemini the Twins

The New Moon is a time of rebirth—a time when we are given a chance to start fresh. The New Moon in the curious and communicative sign of Gemini will occur on May 27, 2006, at 1:25 AM EDT.

What does that mean for you? The New Moon in Gemini presents an excellent time to commit to personal goals that express the positive energies of the sign of the Twins:

  • improve our communication skills by listening to others and enjoying others' points of view, rather than doggedly trying to find that one elusive "answer";
  • take the time to socialize and enjoy others--whether they are neighbors, friends, family, or acquaintances--just for the simple pleasure of doing so;
  • re-evaluate our communication and social skills by questioning just how much we actually take in information, and communicate in a friendly, non-threatening manner;
  • find new venues to express ourselves and to learn by awakening our own curiosity, and refining our writing, speaking, teaching, and listening skills;
  • add some mental variety to our lives;
  • begin a new project that involves writing and/or speaking, or that is in the communications field;
  • open our minds to gathering more information and facts from our environment.

With this potent Gemini energy, we have the chance to make important changes in our lives. This New Moon is supported by Saturn via a sextile, offering us the wherewithal to stick to our plans, and the realism to formulate achievable and practical goals. Although Gemini is renowned for taking on too many projects or activities and not necessarily following them through, Saturn's involvement makes it easier to stick to a specific task and make headway. Productivity may be slow, but it's steady. As well, there is more chance of longevity. It's a powerful time to make solid plans, to begin work on a new communications project or learning activity, to refine and finalize written work, take tests, and present our ideas to others. Favored activities include reading, learning, letters and emails, errands, writing, teaching, making connections, and short trips.

Some of Gemini's "lessons" involve learning to be comfortable with people-- putting them at ease, and feeling at ease ourselves. Instead of communicating with others to prove a point, to come up with an answer to problems, or to get our opinions across, Gemini urges us to truly enjoy the moment. By consciously tuning in to positive Gemini energy, we learn that there isn't always an answer, and we become comfortable with that idea. As we learn to let ourselves truly listen to others, we learn through others simply by being curious, and we improve our social and communication skills at the same time. We open our minds to more information, and we learn to truly enjoy the variety of different personalities around us. We become more aware of the superficiality of our communications. Although Gemini is sometimes associated with superficial connections and communications, dig a little deeper and you will see that there is much to learn from the light, two-way, and comfortable conversations that characterize the sign.

The New Moon will occur at 5 degrees and 48 minutes of Gemini (5°48'). Where is that position in your own natal chart? Look to the affairs of that house for a more personalized meaning of the New Moon. Read more about the New Moon in the houses.
