What does the new moon in Taurus mean for your sign?
Backing up a sec: The moon has different phases, and a new moon happens when the earth lines up with the sun, making the moon pretty much invisible from your POV. There are 12 new moons a year, and each one lines up with a different astrological sign.
This new moon is happening in the sign of Taurus, and there’s a lot going on here—kinda like what’s happening in your head RN.
The new moon is vibrating with the planet Uranus, which is giving it an expect-the-unexpected vibe. Simply put: "The best-laid plans are not going to happen," Page says. At the same time, you’re going to feel kinda-sorta-totally restless (if you aren't already). You want things to be different, but there’s only so much you can do about it. And yeah, that sucks.
The moon is also near the planet Saturn, which can highlight where you feel restricted—in life and in love. You want to break free from the quarantine existence that is your life (and everyone else’s) but, again, you’re stuck. As for your love life, you’ll become hyper-aware of how all of this is impacting your ability to date and/or to have new, exciting adventures with your S.O.
It’s not all intense, though. You’ll also have an urge to sit down and really think things through, in a positive, get sh*t done kind of way. Yes, life is hella weird right now and yes, you can’t do ~exactly~ what you want, when you want. But the new moon is here to remind you that change is coming, and being patient will pay off in the long run.
How will the new moon in Taurusimpact the rest of your year?
Think of the new moon in Taurus as a learning experience more than anything else. You’ll start to realise that, despite putting stuff in your iCal, not everything in life is guaranteed—and that’s okay. The next time you experience a hiccup, you’ll be better able to brush it off and just push forward.
You’ll also learn to take matters into your own hands a little more. Yeah, you can’t go to your fave spin studio right now, but there’s no reason why you can’t grab a mask and get out for a hard bike ride outside (local restrictions permitting). That kind of ability to adapt, change, and, most importantly, be cool with it, will do you a solid in the future.
The new moon will also help you realise what you want out of life. You know you're jonesing for change overall, and you’re going to figure out what specifically that means you want to do once life goes back to normal. Maybe you'll be inspired to take some bucket list goals off the back burner, or maybe you'll decide that a Zoom first date is just the way you sift through potential suitors now.
Finally, you’ll get a solid dose of patience—something everyone could use these days.
When is the next new moon?
The next new moon is on May 22, 2020 in the sign of Gemini. During this new moon, you’ll have a serious craving for some change and spontaneity in your life.
So, take some time now to work through a few things and build up that patience. You’re probably going to need it.
