“13 Taurus New Moon on May 2nd Is to Let the Essence of our Being Bloom and Shine”

On May 1st annually, the dance around the Maypole is a celebration of the Druids and Romans, that has changed through the years, takes place about halfway between spring and summer to help commemorate the blooming of the flowers, and the mystery of the intertwining of heaven and earth as represented by the union of male and female within all life, and the results of that joining together.  About one day after May Day the New Moon at 12 Taurus 30 at 11:51 p.m. PDT appears on May 2nd 2011, and begins it journey with a stellium of planets (three or more in one sign) in Aries including Uranus, is telling us to let the essence of our being bloom and shine through, and the moment should be now.  This essence that ties us together with the spirit and energy of the Divine and our ability to be in union and in joining with this force, is that essence of being within each of us.  The flames of this essence has dwindle in time as we journey through this life’s experiences, and this moon phase is telling us to rekindle and reinforce this link with our spiritual creator and center, and to appreciate and have gratitude from whence we came.  In this way our decisions and actions will be clearer and our results will be more in tune with the Universe, and our satisfaction and happiness will be within our reach.

 “The Sabian symbol for the 13th degree of Taurus is taken from “The Sabian Symbols in Astrology by Marc Edmund Jones”, and what follows are my comments.

Taurus 13  A man handling baggage  This is a symbol of the joy in the effort put forth on the practical or everyday side of life, and of the adjustment by which the human individual is able to make his niche for himself in each available sphere of activity.  Here is an extreme of dependence on the strength and resources of self, and emphasis on the fact there is no function in society which is not of equal importance with every other in fulfilling a person’s need to be useful.  The keyword is industry.  When positive, the degree is an effective self-competence and virility of interest in normal living, and when negative, a dissipation of selfhood and depreciation of all ambition through the performance of drudgery without protest.

Understanding the connection we have with our creator and the gift that was given to us by the essence of our being, and always being in tune with the infinite, we need to keep the bonds open and active.  In this way our ideas and being, blooms to their full potential, and we fulfill the purpose of our creation.  In doing so, what ever situation in life we find ourselves in, we will carry out our duty with joy and satisfaction, and with the knowledge that no job or position is inferior in the sight of the Divine.  With Aires in a cardinal and fire sign and with Uranus pulling out all the stop signs, the only way to go is to explore new vistas.  There are many paths forward we can take, but we should not return back, to what once was.  Our usual routine and our way of being is no longer acceptable to who we are and want to become.  This New Moon is reminding us the seed has been planted, and we must allow the Sun, wind, and rain to do their job to bring forth the flowers, that all may see and enjoy.  It is reminding us that it is not our processions or our desires and wishes that makes us who we are, but the essence of our being.  Our essence of being, like the flowers in the fields needs to bloom and shine, and that we must draw closer in learning to appreciate and enjoy being a creation of the Divine, who sustains us.

    Since it’s a night chart the trigon ruler is the moon. It’s in Mercury’s bounds using hellenistic astrology.
