In astrology, the Moon symbolizes our emotional and inner world, and during eclipses, when the Moon intervenes in the light of the Sun, it's often interpreted as a sign of significant emotional and life shifts.

As we approach the new moon in Taurus on May 7th, 2024, it's an opportune time to focus on manifesting our deepest hopes, wishes, and desires. The new moon, traditionally seen as a period of new beginnings, offers a blank canvas to set intentions and plant the seeds for future growth. Particularly in Taurus, this new moon emphasizes themes of stability, pleasure, and persistence, aligning well with intentions that require a steady, determined effort to come to fruition.

What is the big deal with a New Moon? The new moon phase is when the Moon is aligned between the Earth and the Sun, making it appear invisible from our perspective. This astronomical positioning symbolizes a fresh start and is considered the ideal time to contemplate our innermost desires and set intentions.
