What happens in a New Moon :
A New Moon occurs when the Sun and the Moon come into a straight line together. The Sun and the Earth will be on opposite sides of the Moon at this time. This is something that happens once a month the Moon’s view will be completed blocked, therefore is unable to be viewed from anywhere in the world. The new Moon take precedence over our mind and emotions and often we may feel negative emotions at this time. If you think about the moon being in darkness then our emotions often mimic this darkness.
New Moon in Taurus - 15th May 2018
What can I expect from the New moon in Taurus
Faith, Hope and Charity
The effect of the New Moon in Taurus can be felt for up to four weeks, which would take us up the next New Moon on 13th June. Thus making it a very strong New Moon period indeed. It’s worth noting that Taurus in itself, is a very strong sign of the Zodiac, one that stands it’s ground and can create waves!
Should you be looking to start any new jobs, ventures, projects, friendships or relationships then the best time to be starting these new jaunts would be the first two weeks of this New Moon cycle. This two week period (known in astrology as the “waxing phase”) takes us up to the Full Moon in Sagittarius on 29th May 2018.
As I’ve said above, this New Moon has a very strong influence and can create violent episodes, general bad luck, disastrous events or particularly bad weather conditions during this time. So really a very disruptive period for everyone. Whilst I don’t wish to bring you news of such negativity. It is worth bearing in mind that life isn’t always a bed of roses and at times strong challenges are sent to test our strength.
Those that are lucky enough to escape these awful and negative episodes will mostly know someone directly affected by the adverse events of this New Moon. Therefore, it will be the job of those indirectly affected to comfort, console and find compassion and understanding for those that have been the victims.
The way the planets sit in this New Moon really divides people into which camp they will be sitting in this New Moon phase. Should you be one of the lucky ones in this phase that have not directly experienced negativity, then it will be your job to enforce the faith, hope and charity that comes with this New Moon phase

Characteristics & Traits of Taurus
Generosity - Taureans will always make time for their nearest and dearest. They are always willing to help those in need and would be first to help the homeless or give to charity
Dependable - As Taureans are a strong sign they can be leaned on and you can count on them not to let you down. They make wonderful partners, friends and colleagues as they show true integrity.
Earthed - Taureans hold no place for ego; they will never let their successes go to their heads.
Perfection - They believe in perfection and would rather take their time to get things right first time.
Independence - Taureans hate to rely on other, albeit it emotionally or financially.
Persistence - Taurean always go after what they want in life and they put their all in to get what they want.
Stubbornness - A typical Taurean is very very stubborn. If they choose to they will be the most inflexible ever and will not back down. They won’t enter into an argument they will just simple refuse to listen or ignore.
Selfishness - Sometimes Taureans loose themselves. If they are working towards a deadline say, they will have a one track mind and all focus will be on that deadline regardless of anyone else’s wants or needs. Some may say selfish, some would say driven or focused.
Materialistic - Taureans like security. Therefore, to surround themselves with material things and have money in the bank is considered to be security to a Taurean.
Possessiveness -Jealousy and possessives would be the trait that costs Taureans their relationships. Whilst we are all capable of their negative emotions a Taureans stubbornness is unlikely to allow compromise in these areas; thus coming off worse whilst trying to save face.
Frugal - Taureans are often known for their tightness with money. Whilst a good sense of money and saving is sensible and that would a positive trait, often Taureans go overboard with this end up tight with their cash.
