As the new moon shines in the sky, you will find that this lunar phase is a time of reflection and liberation. It is as if the moon had buried itself in the shadow of the night, providing you with fertile soil to plant a new seed.
This is why new moons are considered new starts or new beginnings; it’s a chance to let go of your past and lay the foundation for the next chapter in your life.
Even if each new moon will impact you in a unique way, the new moon of May 2020 will be the worst for these zodiac signs: Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces and this will encourage them to face some harsh truths. However, they will each come out of the experience feeling so much stronger and better prepared for what lies ahead.
Taking place on May 22 at 1:38 p.m. ET, this new moon is rising in airy and intellectual Gemini, calling on you to embrace your intelligent side and communicate your thoughts. However, the new moon is not the only thing that will be in Gemini. In fact, three other planets, including the Sun, Mercury, and Venus, will also be in Gemini.
Considering how the water signs tend to feel as if they drown when they encounter the aerial element in astrology, this new moon will be particularly difficult for Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces. Whatever the attempt of this new moon, it is also an opportunity to learn more about your relationships and to communicate your feelings.
With Venus, the planet of love and friendship, currently retrograde, this new moon is a great time to talk about how you really feel with someone you care deeply about. Here’s what the water signs should know:
Cancer: You recognize some of your deepest feelings
You might want to withdraw from the world and be alone on this new moon, Cancer. Your intuition is on alert and you are in a deeply spiritual state. Forcing yourself to be social or extroverted will only make this experience more difficult.
Instead, you should get to know your innermost thoughts and feelings. Put aside your ego and your desire to win. Recognize how beautiful it is to be alive and how vast and resilient your soul is.
There is no need to push when you do not need to be pushed. Sometimes the most productive thing you can do is just be.
Scorpio: You begin an intense transformation process
This new moon may look like the moment you step into your cocoon, and even if it is never easy to surrender in the dark, trust that this sacrifice is the best thing you can do for your personal growth.
This new moon is a great time to make a commitment to yourself or to break away from a commitment that is getting you nowhere. You are ready to take the next step. Trust the universe right now, Scorpio. All your hard work will be worth it.
Pisces: You learn to understand your real needs
If it sounds like a cascade of emotions pouring out from you on this new moon, it’s no wonder. Your heart is revealed to you, Pisces, and refusing to recognize your needs will only make this experience even more painful.
However, if you are honest with yourself and give yourself what you need, it will feel cathartic.
Let this new moon inform you of what needs to be done to bring you emotional satisfaction. You deserve to feel safe, comfortable, and neat. What are the sharp edges in your life that keep you from relaxing? How can you soften them?
