Sync­ing with the moon, Mer­cury di­rect – back on track, May horo­scopes, Happy birth­day Tau­rus!

Living Now - - Editorial - By Stella Woods


We all know about liv­ing life in tune with the sea­sons – plant­ing in spring, cel­e­brat­ing in sum­mer, har­vest­ing in au­tumn, and hi­ber­nat­ing in win­ter, but how about liv­ing life in tune with the moon to cre­ate a more re­ward­ing, emo­tion­ally bal­anced, and stress-free ex­is­tence?

Each month, our moon cir­cles the earth, pass­ing through the 12 signs of the zo­diac and spend­ing ap­prox­i­mately two and a half days in each sign. I’ve put to­gether a ta­ble show­ing you the best ac­tiv­i­ties for each of th­ese pe­ri­ods. To find out which sign the moon is in on any given day, con­sult a moon diary or sim­ply check the monthly moon cal­en­dar in Liv­ing­now.


From the 20th April to the 21st May, the sun trav­els through earth sign Tau­rus, whose sym­bol is the ma­jes­tic and pow­er­ful bull. Tau­re­ans love sen­sual and phys­i­cal plea­sure and are gen­er­ally car­ing and af­fec­tion­ate, pa­tient, stead­fast, re­li­able, have ex­cel­lent taste, en­joy­ing fi­nan­cial se­cu­rity and pros­per­ity. They can be very stub­born and take things lit­er­ally so, when deal­ing with a Tau­rean, pro­ceed slowly and steadily and al­ways ex­plain things in a prac­ti­cal man­ner. Tau­re­ans usu­ally re­sist change and their anger can be truly awe­some as it builds up steadily over a long pe­riod of time. When they are out of bal­ance they of­ten suf­fer from sore throats, stiff jaws, or thy­roid prob­lems. The Tau­rean colours are pink, light blue, rus­set, and warm, earthy tones. Tau­rus has a strong con­nec­tion with the arts, par­tic­u­larly mu­sic with many be­ing ex­cel­lent singers. With their in­nate un­der­stand­ing of the phys­i­cal body and ma­te­rial world, many Tau­re­ans work in

the fi­nan­cial, food, fit­ness, and health in­dus­tries. Their great­est les­son is to ac­cept and em­brace change.


Com­mu­ni­ca­tion planet Mer­cury has been trav­el­ling back­wards through Tau­rus and Aries since mid-april, push­ing us to deal with un­fin­ished business and pay at­ten­tion to hunches and gut feel­ings. When Mer­cury is ret­ro­grade, our un­con­scious and in­tu­itive sides are ex­tremely ac­tive and the best-laid plans of­ten come to a halt as events take on a life of their own. On 5th May, Mer­cury comes to a halt and starts mov­ing for­wards again help­ing us make sense of the events of the past three weeks…. and you never know – that miss­ing phone charger could well resur­face!


The May full moon falls on the 11th in pas­sion­ate Scor­pio, op­po­site the sun in fer­tile Tau­rus. With Pluto aligned to both sun and moon, the theme is death, re­birth and trans­for­ma­tion. Think how this could ap­ply to your own life. The May full moon is also known as the We­sak moon, mark­ing Bud­dha’s birth and en­light­en­ment. New moons are all about new beginnings. The May new moon falls on the 26th in Gem­ini, bring­ing fresh ideas and in­sight. But not every­one will agree with your point of view, so be pre­pared to stand up and fight!


Launch projects at the new moon, bring them to com­ple­tion in the pe­riod from just be­fore the full moon to the third quar­ter phase and wind them down and re­flect on de­vel­op­ments in the week be­fore the next new moon. Im­por­tant events such as par­ties, con­fer­ences, and wed­dings are best held close to the full moon or when the moon is in the same sign as your star sign. n Con­nect with other read­ers & com­ment on this ar­ti­cle at www.liv­ing­ Stella Woods is an astrol­ogy teacher and con­sul­tant.
