My New Moon in Taurus Mantra

“I Release all thoughts (Mercury) that block (Saturn) me from making my wishes (New Moon) a reality (Taurus)

If you follow me on Twitter you know I always encourage you to write down your new moon wishes once a month. I love the period of the New Moon, I like beginnings I have a natal Aries Moon and often feel I am on a journey of searching for newness. I like to try new things, see new places….the New Moon is a period of planting seeds that ideally reach fruition by the time of the Full Moon when the moon is at its brightest and fullest. I usually don’t post about the New Moon every month but several people seem particularly worried about this New Moon. The New Moon in earth sign of Taurus occurs on May 18th so the Sun and Moon will conjoin in the sign of the bull in 26 degrees (during a New Moon the Sun and Moon are always in the same sign) this New Moon forms an out of sign conjunction with Mars (meaning you want to take action) but perhaps you feel restricted or immobile because this New Moon is opposite Saturn and occurring on the same day that Mercury is stationary, or apparently has stopped before heading into retrograde.

Retrograde periods in itself are always about RE-doing, RE-viewing, RE-considering no matter the planet If its Pluto we RE-view our power, if it’s in Uranus we RE-consider where we want to be free, in Neptune we RE-vise our dreams, with Saturn being retrograde this is a time we REVIEW what has been blocking us, ya know if you didn’t get the lesson on the direct you always get it on the retrograde. With this New Moon being connected to Saturn retrograde we need to review all the ways we have been blocking ourselves from achieving our dreams. Taurus is not a flighty whimsical sign, it’s a ground earth sign that is all about the tangible what we can see with our eyes, touch with our hands; so this New Moon opposite Saturn is saying before you can go forward (Mars) you need to RE-lease all the blocks, limitations, and hardships (Saturn) within yourself (Retrograde) . Keep in mind Saturn is in the sign of Sagittarius; the only thing keeping you away from what you want is your belief!  Some say Sagittarius Keywords are “I perceive” Changing your perception may help alter your reality. Sagittarius is naturally a sign of optimism, perhaps this is a period of finding our inner cheerleader where we are most blocked (Saturn).

This occurring on the day Mercury stations in the sign or communication Gemini only reinforcing the idea that we need to review our inner dialog. Go on a journey within this New Moon, clear out old limiting (Saturn) thoughts (Mercury) change your perception (Sagittarius) and then your wishes (New Moon) will become a reality (Taurus)


Mercury Retrograde Tips

Mercury Retrograde Generally Speaking

Each planet used in astrology holds a particular significance over our lives. The Sun is the life force, the moon signifies the women in your life or the manner in which you relate to women, Venus indicates how we give and receive love where Mars is the manner in which we pursue goals, Saturn is the authority figure and where we work our ass off, Uranus indicates where you will often be surprised, Neptune indicates where you are confused, Pluto where you go to die and be reborn and well Mercury that is the manner in which we learn and communicate. Mercury is the ruler of the Astrological Signs Gemini and Virgo as well as the 3rd astrological house home to communication, learning abilities, short trips, electronics and automobiles. The planet Mercury is said to turn retrograde approximately 3 to 4 times a year throwing us curve balls and serving us mini landmines on route to our travel destinations. As Mercury travels through the zodiac no matter what sign it visits you are to follow these basic retrograde rules:

· Do not even think about traveling and if you do travel be prepared for sudden snow falls, e-ticket errors, flat tires, the plane is likely to have mechanical errors. I work it a hotel and last Mercury Rx the elevators stopped functioning and we were unable to make any guest keys for days.
· Back it up! Back it up! Back it up! Mercury rules electronics; I once spilled a glass of Vodka on someones laptop during Mercury Rx whoopsy! Your hard drive will sizzle, that document somehow didn’t save…back everything up to an external hard drive. Expect outdated appliances will suddenly need replacement
· Do not sign a contract, do not apply for a loan, do not get married…When Mercury was in retrograde in 2011 I attempted to buy a place. The bank forgot to tell me about a flip tax, the Co Op Board lost my application and in the end I was denied and accused of providing false statements which is utterly ridiculous
· Get your game face on, the Ex Files will show up. You will bump into them at the local Stop & Shop, they will call you …. This is the better manifestation of Mercury retrograde it permits you to go back and connect with people from the past and perhaps receive closure.
· No Big ticket purchases they will likely need to be returned
· No New Stock purchases look at Facebook stock I believe Venus and Mercury were in retrograde when it went public. And when Zuckerberg got married…no comment.

Mercury Retrograde like most retrograde periods is a time of review. Looking back, reconsidering, rethinking then upon once Mercury going direct Put all those ideas in motion. Until then eat turkey at home, don’t travel for the holidays, don’t even think of engaging in Black Friday shopping & look your best when hitting up the frozen food aisle you never know who you may see;)
