New Moon in Taurus in Krittika for 22 May 2020

The new moon rises in sidereal Taurus in Krittika on 22 May 2020. The feminine side of Venus brings the collective stability and pleasure. Imbalances May show evidence of greed and stubbornness. Krittika is the nakshatra of purification and clarity. Depending on the natal chart, this new moon will illuminate where our pleasures in life need balance.

This transit will join Venus retrograde and the last two days of Mercury in Taurus. Venus and Mercury love each other’s energy; there may have been an urge to think about who is close to our hearts. We may have communicated our values, or at the very least reconsidered what we value. Although the moon loves Taurus’ energy, Venus is not friendly with the moon. Be aware of adversarial thoughts and emotions towards loved ones.

Taurus rules the face, neck, throat, voice, and thyroid gland (hormones). Notice food choices, as they may affect the skin and emotions. Food cravings may be a sign of eating emotions.

Money is also ruled by the bull. There may be guidance to save money for a rainy day. On an extreme level, watch out for impulses of laziness, greediness, or to abstain from pleasures. Venus is connected to the heart chakra, artistic projects may be a way to balance the new moon energy.

Scorpio is the opposite energy of Taurus on the axis, as well as where the full moon eclipse will rise on June 5. This can be a good time to transform old habits, heal unattended emotions, or work through fears.

Look at the chart below from your ascendant (physical and material world) and the moon (mind and emotions) to understand how the new lunar cycle will affect you.
