Stargazing — May 6th through May 12th, 2024

May 6, 2024 | Stargazing, Stargazing

The Taurus New Moon on May 8th is close to Uranus and exactly between Venus and Jupiter in Taurus, which brings material needs into focus. However, it’s also an exceedingly sensual and fertile quality of time that could tempt you to indulge.

If you are looking for a stable, reliable partner, then Tuesday’s New Moon could bring you the suitor of your dreams. If you are already in a relationship, you may want to discuss taking things to the next level by considering marriage, having children, or by moving in together.

Let down your barriers and take a chance on trusting those around you. This week’s positive vibes promote sharing, nurturing, and pulling together your resources for the benefit of all. This is a good week to create domestic plans for the future. Look for a new house or apartment, take out a mortgage, or move in with your significant other, It’s time to create a stable base for your own personal security and happiness.

Treat yourself to something that makes you feel good on this powerful day. It’s also the perfect time to give thanks in one way or another for the miracle of life, be it with a ritual or a small celebration with friends. This day is an excellent time to sow the seeds for a new project. It will bear abundant fruit.


Seeds planted at this time will blossom into a beautiful garden over the course of this next year.

Five of the ten planets we use in astrology are in Taurus at this New Moon, and all of the planets are tightly bundled in less than one-third of the zodiac between Aquarius and Taurus. A bundled chart helps you get focused on that which is most important to you.

Intense Pluto is leading all the planets at the New Moon, so that means transformation, letting go, and going to the deepest places within your being to clear out the darkness and embrace the new. It’s time to step into your power.


A sacred Sabian Symbol for this new moon is “A new continent rising out of the ocean.” Meditate on this symbol for personal meaning. The ocean is the collective consciousness. A new continent is a new consciousness coming into manifestation, both in your life and globally. We all need to let out our Dalai Lama (means Ocean of Wisdom) and express the Bodhisattva within. ( A Bodhisattva delays going off to nirvana to bring compassion to the suffering.)

Wednesday is a powerful day for getting out of a rut by implementing radical change. Take a chance this week and dare to be different.

If you’re going on a first date Friday night be careful of Casanovas who are all about the thrill and having fun but have no desire for a real relationship.

Arguments could flare up on Saturday, so be careful about making any rash statements that you can’t take back.

Harmony returns on Sunday, just in time for Mother’s Day. Warm feelings of love, respect and family roots abide.

Mercury in Aries soon leaves the past Mercury retrograde shadow remaining from April, and ambitious Mars recently moved into Aries until June 9th. Both of these push you to get moving on manifesting your goals. Taurus helps you put the physical effort into creating your dreams

If you are willing to roll up your sleeves and get to work, there is plenty of help available. But do practice flexibility and adaptability now.
