The New Moon is tomorrow, Tuesday, May 11, 2021 at 2:00 p.m. CDT in 21° Taurus. With this symbol of new beginnings in an earth sign, it's often a time of planting a seed. This can be a good time for planting seeds in the actual earth in your garden. It can also be a good time for planting a positive thought or creative idea into your consciousness.
You can write your own positive thought or try this expansive affirmation:
The Divine plan of my life now takes shape
The sign Taurus is ruled by the planet Venus in astrology. So this New Moon is also a good time to start projects related to the arts.
Jupiter moves out of Aquarius and into the sign Pisces on May 13th. Jupiter moves through each sign in about 12 months. The symbol of Jupiter in Pisces is an open heart of generosity and compassion. I talk about “The Heart of Compassion and the Blessings of the Divine Mother” in my Mother's Day meditation for the Temple of Kriya Yoga.

End of May Planets
The end of the month lineup of Saturn retrograde (May 22), Lunar Eclipse (May 26) and Mercury retrograde (May 29) suggest that extra responsibilities may pop up then, so getting important tasks and projects finished in the next seven days will benefit you. I'll write more in my next post.
