The New Moon tends to be considered the most promising phase of the lunar cycle. This is because the New Moon is a time to shed the skin and embrace the prospect of something “new”. What could be more promising than starting a new journey? However, the prospect of starting over can often seem overwhelming.
There may be so many things that you hold onto, like guilt, resentment, and bad habits, that you’re not ready to give up. Even though the May 2021 New Moon will be challenging for Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius, that doesn’t mean the journey will be as difficult as the place you started from.
This particular New Moon will encourage you to forge something from scratch. After all, it takes place in a practical, stable, and cautious Taurus, a zodiac sign who prefers to take a more measured approach and take their time before committing.
Taurus is an earth sign, which is concerned with the material and physical realms. This makes this New Moon the perfect time to work on building a stronger, more reliable foundation for you. Focus on building something with your bare hands.
Taking place on May 11 at 2:59 p.m. ET, this New Moon can take you to dark and uncomfortable places. After all, it will form a trine with Pluto, the god of the underworld. However, it is often in the underworld where you have become much stronger.
It is through strife that you formed callus and confidence in your ability to overcome obstacles. Even though this New Moon can take you deep, you will rise up with more power than ever. Here is what the air signs can expect:
You let go of so much heavy, stressful energy. This New Moon will push you to go inward. Taking place in your 12th house of spirituality, this New Moon will put you more in touch with your subconscious self rather than your outward self.
You may find that you are carrying a lot of energy that is not serving you. This energy can be filled with negativity, guilt, pain, all of the above, but it is not a part of you. It’s just living rent-free in you.
Work on letting go of this dark energy and replenishing your spirit. The healing process has only just begun.
You may be settling emotional and financial debts. All of your attachments are coming forward during this New Moon. You may realize that your energetic, emotional, and financial ties are weighing you down.
However, sometimes it’s easier to continue dealing with the devil you know than leaving yourself open to something that could be worse, but that’s just fear talking.
This New Moon is taking place in your eighth house of transformation, and in order to rise from your ashes like a phoenix, you must first allow something that you have been holding onto to come to an end. Be confident in what you could be after you break free.
You explore your heart and review its needs. In life, you may feel like you have to ignore your heart to get the job done. However, connecting with your heart will infuse your life with a lot more meaning.
Because this New Moon is taking place in your fourth house of home and family, it encourages you to sort out anything that may be keeping you from feeling truly connected to your roots.
Maybe it’s time to redesign your living space to your liking. Maybe it’s time to deal with childhood issues. Whatever you do, let your heart do the talking.
