The New Moon in Taurus occurs on Thursday, May 13, 2010 at 6:04pm Eastern (1:04am, May 14 GMT). This New Moon is a time for new beginnings, ending the time of introspection that began with the Scorpio Full Moon.

During this period of spring (in the Northern Hemisphere), of rebirth and growth, this Taurean energy asks us to become more grounded and in tune with the earth. Earthy Taurus will having us seeking ways to provide more security and stability in our lives, and to begin with the shrine that is our physical bodies. Use the wisdom of nature and the New Moon energy to begin a new dedication to treating your body, mind, and soul well.

This New Moon in Taurus is also squared by Mars in Leo, which will create some pull between our urge for stability (Taurus) and our urge for action (Leo). It is up to us to find where the balancing point is in our own life. Mercury in Taurus is now direct and trines Pluto in Capricorn, which will help us create sensible solutions while searching for that balance. Venus in Gemini is semi-sextile the Sun and Moon in Taurus, so we though we will feel the tension while trying to achieve our goals, chances are good for success.
