New Moon May 2019 Astrology
The May 4 new moon at 14°10′ Taurus makes only one planetary aspect as shown in the chart below. The sextile to Neptune is a positive influence but only a mild one given the orb is nearly four degrees.
The challenging influence of Mars opposite Jupiter is very strong at under one degree orb. But a helpful fixed star on the new moon degree ensures an overall positive effect from new moon May 2019.
New Moon Aspects
Sun sextile Neptune heightens your sensitivity and ability to read people and situations. Greater empathy and receptivity improves relationships with a shared understanding that could be non-verbal. Sharing your more caring and sensitive side will also improve your self-esteem and bring personal satisfaction.
New moon May 2019 is also good for group activities and spiritual work. It improves any intuitive or psychic abilities. Vivid dreams, meditation or occult work will bring inspiring insights leading to greater self understanding and contentment.
Mars opposite Jupiter gives strength, courage and sex appeal. It increases your self-confidence and desire to win. Wanting more out of life you will be willing to take risks to have your passionate desires fulfilled.
But selfishness, greed or overconfidence would bring loss and embarrassment. So be considerate of others and remember self-control, humility and patience. In this way you can succeed in business, romance, politics and sports.
