As the Moon joins an exalted Sun at 20° of Aries, igniting our conscious and subconscious the lunar house of Bharani nakshatra a place of birth, death and rebirth. Symbolised by the yoni the female reproductive organ, here it is where we become alive, yet the joy of birth always comes with the weight of action, dealing with legacy and our inherited karma.

The strength of the exalted Sun Aries promises a month filled with activity and forward movement, yet the new Moon is sandwiched between some major planetary shifts; a retrograde Saturn, Mars preparing his move to join Rahu, we are not given a pass to run or to hide, just as a child passing through the womb to emerge into the world in birth and claim our responsibility and destiny.

This is a time where situations that arise embody the more soul lessons and the deeply ingrained patterns that require extra emotional equanimity so that we may see with ultimate clarity what is needing to be polish and smoothed out.

The new Moon of May encourages us to cross the threshold into action and with the first step forward we honour ourselves by becoming ourselves, trust our own unique expression, and use our voice, our being, and our vibration to embody the changes and the energies we wish to experience, where the ripples of transformation have been seeded to bring in the new into a higher consciousness.

Just as all births bring blessing so does this new moon with the vedic holiday called Akasha Trittya celebrated on May 7th when the Sun is exalted in Aries and the Moon has waxed into exaltation in the sign of Taurus.

Here we see the power of the Sun and Moon shine in their most glorious of settings, which are lorded by the powerful, masculine Mars and the radiant, feminine Venus. An auspicious day to start any new venture, bringing good luck and success.

May we learn to care for one another more deeply, and hold space for peace each and everyday

I wish you love and luck in the new Moon cycle
