Your complete 2021 New Moon in Taurus Horoscope

     Holy cow! On May 11th, we have the fifth New Moon of 2021, and this New Moon takes place in fixed earth sign Taurus. This is the last manifestation moon before eclipse season (which starts May 26th). So, it’s definitely a lunation worth your attention.

     If you haven’t heard it through the astrological grapevine (or the farmer’s almanac), New Moons are ideal days to plant seeds for growth. The lunations symbolize new beginnings, initiation, can bring about new opportunities, and just help us to start over. Each New Moon has a specific theme, which varies with each zodiac sign. 

     Taurus is an earth sign that loves money, food, and comfort. Taurus is also a sign of building and stability. So, the theme of the 2021 New Moon in Taurus is building a stable life of comfort. (At least, that’s how I interpret this lunation; other astrologers may do differently.)

     There are seven other planetary transits on the 2021 Taurus New Moon, which is such a high number, I’m not sure I can explain what they all mean. (What am I, an astrology manual?). What I mean is, I don’t have time to go through them all. So, here’s a short list of them:

     First, the Sun and Moon in Taurus sextile Neptune in Pisces. Second, Mercury in Gemini is conjunct the North Node in Gemini (which is also sextile Chiron in Aries) and trine Saturn in Aquarius. Third, Mars in Cancer is sextile Uranus in Taurus and square Chiron in Aries. Lastly, Jupiter is in the anaretic degree of Aquarius. 

     There. That’s the short list of the other planetary transits occurring on the new moon. (Promo alert: If you want to know what those transits mean for you on 2021 Taurus New Moon (including suggested intentions for manifestation), be sure to check out the Taurus New Moon episode of my Cosmic Chronicles astrology podcast.) 

         Ok, so that’s a ton of information, I know. And I’m sure you’re curious about how it all factors into your life– particularly all that junk about building a stable life of comfort. So, without further adieu: 

Your 2021 Taurus New Moon Horoscope

Aries & Aries Rising ♈

     Are you grappling with self-esteem issues? Hear this: you are worth more than you think. Unless of course, you think you’re better than every single soul on the planet. Then, it’s time to take a stab at humility. (Lol, what’s that?) If confidence isn’t troubling you, then maybe your finances are. You could realize that you need (and know exactly how) to make more money… 

Taurus & Taurus Rising ♉

     This New Moon is a second birthday, so make a wish! Just remember to back up your wish with hard work. Not right away of course. Save that proactive sh-t for Aries. You’ll sit for a bit until you’re good and ready to go after your wish. But by that point, you’ll have already attracted what you wanted, ‘cuz you’re a master of passive manifestation…  

Gemini & Gemini Rising ♊

     Go on, commit to… something! Your attention has been split between so many projects, you haven’t the mental space to focus on building anything (what’s new?). Reflect on what it is that you want to build. The New Moon not only provides insight into your deepest dreams, it can also help you heal– If you put all of your mind and might on doing so… 

Cancer & Cancer Rising ♋

     Collectively, you have a lot on your plate. An opportunity for a group endeavor may arise and lead you to ponder freelance work, which adds more to that plate. You’re not complaining (which is odd, because you will complain about anything). It’s one of your life objectives to secure a spot with an organization you can help build. Provided, you can work at your leisure… 

Leo & Leo Rising ♌

    Lucky you, an opportunity for advancement curls up in your lap like a pretty kitty. Your long-range goals have been on the backburner lately (I blame Covid and a lack of networking parties), but they’re ready to be reignited. So, start building a plan for success: spruce up your resume and LinkedIn profile. The professional world is watching you and it’s ready to be wowed…  

Virgo & Virgo Rising ♍

     Vague alert! Given that I don’t know much about you (or your sign, tbqh), I can’t say for certain what this New Moon will do for you. You may decide to plan for a trip to some faraway land like Dallas. You might apply for grad school, Yoga teacher training, or idk, take some ‘shrooms and act like a shaman. The sky’s truly the limit…

Libra & Libra Rising ♎

     ♪Let’s talk about sex, baby, let’s talk about mysteries. Let’s talk about all the weird things and taboo things that may be a part of this New Moon♪ Ok, enough Salt-n-Pepa. Use this New Moon as a way to dive deep into the unknown. By that I mean go to a therapist, psychologist, or priest. Any objective person who’ll listen to your secrets and kinks… 

Scorpio & Scorpio Rising ♏

     Stabilize your personal relationships. Whether it’s with your love/business partner(s), your close friends, or your arch nemeses (that’s nemesis plural, because everyone seems to hate on you), center your attention on harmony. And stability. Definitely focus on stability, because this New Moon is all about that. It’s also about attracting a love/business partner or new BFF who brings stability into your life… 

Sagittarius & Sagittarius Rising ♐

     Sleeping issues? If so, you should check your routine and see how you can sneak in a cat nap. That way, you don’t have to change anything in your day-to-day life apart from ensuring you have time to lounge around and do nothing for 20 minutes or so. Also, you might want to think about just going to be earlier, but you do you, boo… 

Capricorn & Capricorn Rising ♑

     Center your attention on you. Or you children/creative offspring (should you have them). This New Moon is all about boosting your self-esteem. Summoning love isn’t hard, since your social life is picking up speed (if it isn’t, get yourself new friends). And creative endeavors flourish. The key here– and you’ll love this –is to use the good vibes of this lunation to your advantage…

Aquarius & Aquarius Rising ♒

     Acquiring a sacred space is harder than the movies tell us. You can’t just pack up and move to a new home. There’s simply too many memories lurking underneath the floorboards and walls for one to just leave it all behind. Then again, you’re not really one for nostalgia. So go ahead and move to a new domestic setting. Just do some planning before splitting…

Pisces & Pisces Rising ♓

     Prepare to receive some practical signs from the universe. These will come in the form of an email, a text, a robo call from Basalt, Colorado, or an influencer’s #ad for skinny teas on Instagram, reminding you to start building those to daydreams of yours. That, or a sibling/cousin/BFF invites you on a short trip to the mountains or some other touristy spot…
