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
