Goodbye suffering, hello opulence!
You’re not alone if you’ve felt like this Taurus season has been a series of bullfights rather than languid days of decadence. Mercury’s retrograde in Taurus was a comedy of errors, and the eclipses on the Taurus-Scorpio axis brought about definitive endings in the way that only two fixed signs can. But Taurus season isn’t over yet, and the earth sign is performing one final encore before retiring for good. Jupiter, astrology’s expansive, benefic planet, enters Taurus for the first time in 12 years on May 16, bringing pleasure and good fortune to the bull’s domain. This year-long transit is set to be lush, and it will be amplified by the new moon in Taurus on May 19.
A new moon is a time to set intentions and plan ahead, according to astrology. The moon is exalted in Taurus, where its nourishing powers are as plentiful as the earth after a good rain. The new moon in May is the first after the Taurus-Scorpio eclipses, and with Jupiter on its side amplifying its energy, the blessings are pouring in.
The new moon in Taurus, which occurs at 11:53 a.m. EDT (15:53 GMT) on May 19, is an opportunity to make plans for the coming year. Jupiter’s assistance with this lunation should not be overlooked; wherever Taurus falls in your chart, success is on the way, especially if you have other planets in the earth sign. Consider what you want to accomplish in the coming year, and use the new moon in Taurus to get the wheels turning. Remember that Taurus is ruled by Venus, so any goals that enhance the senses are ripe for success. (Though horoscopes apply to sun signs, we recommend that you read your Jupiter in Taurus horoscope as well as your May 2023 horoscope based on your rising sign to see how these transits affect you personally.)
Taurus inhabits what Aries discovers. Aries is an action-oriented sign ruled by Mars. Taurus, the Venus sign, is called to embody. Aries performs the violent masculine work of hunting and fertilizing in the dance of procreation. Meanwhile, Taurus plays the grand feminine, lazing in the grass like Kirsten Dunst’s Marie Antoinette, waiting for her fellow Taurus Jamie Dornan to take her in the fields.
Working with Jupiter and Venus is an astrologer’s dream; after all, the two planets are all about having fun. May’s new moon in Taurus has an innate sweetness to it that will last for a long time. Taurus despises rushing into things, and if you play your cards right, the new moon on May 19 can help ensure a year of earthly pleasures that only become apparent when you slow down enough to notice them.
