Welcome to “Starcast” – an extraordinary look into what the Cosmos has in store for the 12 sun-signs. There’s one thing that can always be depended upon. It’s the motion of our solar system and its contents, moving forward – and constantly influencing human beings, here on Earth, in truly meaningful ways. Last month, the Sun (personal efforts and endeavors) left the aggressive sun-sign of Aries, the Ram, and entered the strong, possessive, and detail-minded sun-sign of Taurus, the Bull, on Friday, April 19th at 6:04 p.m. (ET). Then, yesterday, on Thursday, May 9th at 8:26 p.m. (ET), the New Moon (when the Sun and the Moon are in perfect alignment within the same sun-sign – signifying new beginnings) occurred – setting up a brilliant force field that unfolds favorably over the next 12 to 14 days. This is very good.
Here’s why: No matter who you are or where you are on Earth, you’re influenced by whatever planetary activity is taking place in our highly-charged and stunning solar system. Now, never to be treated casually (worse; ignored), the New Moon (every New Moon) presents a fresh opportunity to take charge of your Life by resorting to the invisible power within the atmosphere (the air all around you) to bring your goals, objectives, and long-held desires into tangible form. Noteworthy: holding any negative thoughts from the past – in your conscious and present thoughts – block those wonderful new beginnings from coming through to you as new ideas, new opportunities, a new change of circumstances.
Look at a numerical (1 through 12) clock. That’s your birth chart, too, in which each pie-shaped wedge (7 to 6 o’clock, for example) is a house – an area of activity (love, money – in every currency imaginable – work, and so on) in your day-to-day world, one of which Taurus governs. Know that this influence (the New Moon in Taurus) thrives amid vivid developments and the desired results of love, laughter, and abundance. Right now!
Here’s how the New Moon (new beginnings) in earthy Taurus, the Bull, affects the 12 sun-signs within the 12 houses of the zodiac wheel.
