The New Moon in Taurus occurs today, May 9, at 8:28 pm EDT (12:28 am, Friday, May 10 GMT), at 19 degrees. New moons signify a new cycle, new beginnings, and rebirth.

This New Moon, along with the Sun (also in Taurus) will highlight the earthy Taurus qualities of stubbornness, stability, and sensuality, as well as second house themes of money and material possessions. This New Moon period is the perfect time to examine how you deal with money and saving. Are you making goals and following through, adding to your savings each month? Or are you spending so that you can enjoy the creature comforts of home? Now is the time to make goals and stick with them! This New Moon period is the perfect time to set goals related to health and personal well-being, such as goals for weight loss, smoking cessation, education and learning, etc.

Today is a solar eclipse; eclipses are times of heightened energy. Expect surprises, especially as they relate to money.

Keep in mind also that Saturn is retrograde until this summer and Pluto turned retrograde last month, so you may find yourself being extra retrospective or reflective of where you’ve come from, where you see yourself now, and how you see yourself achieving your future financial plans.
