The new moon in Taurus takes place on the morning on May 15th, 2018. You can see the Sun and Moon are conjunct at 24 degrees. I cropped the picture to show Uranus teetering at the last degree and minute of Aries. Uranus will ingress into Taurus a few hours post the the time of the new moon. If you’re in the US, this will all be wrapped up by noon. It’s a terrific shift.
It’s not easy to interpret this because the Sun and Moon in Taurus represent one thing – stability. Uranus in Taurus will upset Taurus-ruled things over the next seven years.
I’ve mentioned the inevitable change on the love and money front – Financial instability. Everything I wrote there will be a fact, but I want to offer something more so you get an idea of the pervasive effects of this transit.
Taurus is often compared to an “oak cabinet”. They’re sturdy and they’re reliable. This is what is going to change. Just imagine an oak cabinet flying around the room in an unstable manner. I’m not sure that ducking will help.
I know this scares people, and I’m sorry. But I am married to Taurus (at an early degree) and I can see this, clear as a bell.
Generally speaking, Taurus is considered a boring sign. If nothing else, this transit should increase your appreciation for the reliable people and things in your life. They say, you don’t miss your water ’till your well run dry. I associate that quote with Scorpio. This will be the opposite. When the stable and predictable things and people in your life behave erratically and become unpredictable, you realize how much you needed that anchor.
As for the effects on the 15th, the new moon is separated from Uranus as shown in the picture. Chances are, the Sun and Moon will land in one house of your chart with Uranus in another.
The ideas below are for the new moon, alone. I just couldn’t write about, May 15th, without mentioning, Uranus’ ingress into Taurus. This only happens every 84 years!
