To loosely quote Britney Spears, "Are you sure you want a piece of May?" Don’t worry about what could go wrong. The planetary transits of May are actually pretty and nice. Venus, the ruler of this month’s new moon, has left the simplicity of Taurus behind to explore and develop questions within the domain of Gemini. For the new moon on May 11th at 21 degrees in Taurus, you can expect a blend between careless adventure and concrete learning. You will be encouraged to think about your idealism and why believing in certain ideas helps you define yourself and your personal story. As a fixed earth sign, the moon in Taurus prefers to be emotionally grounded and secure, because Taurus’ ruler, Venus, is in the ever-changing air sign Gemini. It will challenge you to learn how to be open to compromise, change, and unexpected news. Change is a constant and while the new moon may lead you to want to hold on to the present, change is an inescapable force that we must learn to become comfortable with.
