New Moon in the 2nd sign of the zodiac occurs on 6-7th May 2016, symbolising another new start of the lunar cycle.
Taurus, ruled by Venus, reminds us to come down-to-earth, to experience and enjoy life through the five senses, be it gourmet food, weekend spa, new haircut/manicure/pedicure or just a simple hug.
Where does this new moon in Taurus at 16 degrees 41 minutes fall in your chart? If you have planets/angles in fixed signs (especially Taurus and Scorpio) at that degree then take note. With Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto in retrograde, it's not a time for action, but think about what you value (Venus - dispositor of this new moon). Let's not forget the wonderful grand trine in the earth element among the new moon (Taurus), Jupiter (Virgo) and Pluto.
Personally, I can't wait for the direct motion of Jupiter (the dispositor of my Sun) on 9th May. I have heard many times that when the planet of luck is in retrograde or under challenging aspects, the effects may not appear to be as devastating as the malefics, but whenever Jupiter is in retrograde, I feel like I'm in a straitjacket, so I'll be glad to come out of it! However, it's station direct degree is exactly opposite my Sun, roll on June........
