The May 6th New Moon in Taurus is part of a Grand Earth Trine. Pluto Rx in Capricorn, Jupiter Rx and the North Node in Virgo all collaborate with this Moon to solidify or increase what you need and want. More value for your money/emotional investment, or an enhanced awareness of your self-worth. The harmony of the Grand Trine means uninhibited flow: events that are meant to develop will fall into place. Don't force what's not happening naturally. While Mercury Rx in Taurus does not aspect this Moon, it’s an important player, due to its rulership of the North Node. Looking back, reviewing and reevaluating are the keys that can unlock a promising new development.
Saturn Rx in Sagittarius will make a tough inconjunct to this Moon, and a square to Jupiter Rx. Watch for a bit of friction, as the Moon’s focus on resources/value contrasts with restrictions, or a lack of resources (in a different area). Saturn won’t be enough to cancel out the benefits of this Moon, but it will provide a timely reminder that there’s more work to do.
Note that this Moon directly involves 4 out of 5 retrograde planets. Whether you’re focusing on what you're worth, or what someone is (or isn’t) giving you, it's about pausing, going back and digging deeper. Also - patience. Slowing down means a more thorough, thoughtful approach. If you try to rush something, you'll hit a wall and miss all the benefits of the current climate.
The Grand Earth Trine will extend to June 1st, thanks to Venus and Mercury’s activations of Pluto, Jupiter and the North Node. But for this week, Mercury Rx will be in the driver’s seat, as it trines the North Node on May 8th. Delays, second thoughts, a change of opinion/plans, a reconnection or repeat question will work in your favour.
Mercury Rx may have prompted you to reevaluate your salary, savings, or primary relationship needs. Now the New Moon in your sector of personal resources can present a fresh opportunity regarding income, savings, spending habits and self -sufficiency. This Moon can help you solidify a better approach to getting what you need/enhancing what you have. Also, watch for a second chance to reboot an emotional connection, take advantage of financial opportunity or reestablish your boundaries. Saturn Rx is a reminder that slow growth is your best bet, for now. Expansion may be minimal, or non- existent: now is not the time to break new ground. Watch for delays/difficulties with travel plans, legal issues, education or publishing.
The Grand Earth Trine suggests that New Moon opportunities may be connected to changes at work.
