Moon Astrology for New Moon Process

  • May 11 – New Moon
  • May 26 – Full Moon

Look for Venus and the Moon in the northwest sky after sunset on May 12th Wednesday.

There is no light to see for the New Moon. It is the exact opposite position in the cycle from the Full Moon.

To follow along with the Moon’s rhythm is to recognize that the important part of the process at the New Moon is happening quietly inside the mind, emotions, and spirit. That is the secret of the New Moon.

Emerging victorious from last week’s sorting through a mental pickle may offer a personal sense of control as the Moon shifts in the cycle. Let it fuel intentions and goal lists.

If the inner work was unfinished, and not released, there may be a vulnerable feeling of uncertainty. Let it be and just notice it. Repeat release exercises. Summon a positive sense of who you want to be for the coming weeks.


Short for “high,” this list of “HI dates” means that the astrology tip is the time for a priority task, appointment, meeting, decision, or purpose. Do the most important items.

The best days this coming week to be busy with priority activities are:

  • May 9 – HI to 4p PT Moon in Aries


5/11/21: Mars the planet of action is sextile (means an opportunity) Uranus (change). Sounds like zing, fun, and surprises.

5/13/21: Jupiter to Pisces. Last time in 2010. Jupiter’s sense of good business, wealth and luck will manifest in Pisces Water with an eye to imagination, kindness, compassion. See all sides of an issue. Spirituality, but not so much as to escape responsibilities.

* Times listed are (PT) Pacific Time. Add 3 hours for ET.

Moon Phase: LQ+6 means it is six days after the Last Quarter moon.
