A Super New Moon occurs when the moon is at or near its closest approach to Earth in a given orbit. Its vibration is thus at its strongest.
A retrograde planet appears to be travelling backwards across the heavens. Right now Mercury (god of intellect, communication and travel), Mars (god of war), Pluto (god of transformation and inner change), Jupiter (god of growth and expansion: materially, intellectually and emotionally) and Saturn (god of karma and time) are all in retrograde motion. They all advise you to RE-visit aspects of your life.

Tonight’s Super New Moon in Taurus conjuncts/passes retrograde Mercury briefly in the wee hours that follow. TIS A GOOD TIME TO RE-FLECT on your feelings about the ‘tangibles’ in your life. Think things through but don’t perhaps start anything anew as a consequence. I shall be waiting until 22 May at the earliest, when Mercury comes out of its retrograde motion, to start any new projects. Even then, Mercury will retrace its erstwhile forward journey across its ‘shadow in the heavens’. I’ll thus think twice about signing any new contracts, for example, before Mid June.

How do you feel about the world you have created around you?
Where are you receiving too little?
Where are you giving too much? Do you do so willingly or out of a sense of duty?
Where are you hording things?
Where or what are your leaks? (The stuff you do that takes you off track or diverts your attention from what’s important to you eg drinking, drugs, sex, gambling, computer games – to name but a few of my ‘leaks’ over the years.)
What or whom are you blocking from entering into your life? Do you block out of love or fear? The more you block fear, the stronger it gets.
What is the long term effect of the decisions you’ve been making with regard to the above questions? Is it sustainable?
NOW is the time to reflect AND on 9 May, Mercury will pass across the face of the Sun. NOW if you look at the Sun, it’s light will blind you. SO…. close your eyes and go within. Imagine going inside yourself, right inside your heart. Rest there a while, contemplate.
What is your heart telling you? Think through the consqequences of the advice your heart gives you whilst there.
The heart never judges so it has no need to forgive. The advice you get will be sound, I promise you.
Inside you is an ‘eternal void of self-forgiveness’. Forgiveness is not a state of mind, it’s a state of being. When you enter the void, you practice a love not borne of this dimension, you practice what-is, as opposed to what is not, you practice the present where the past is-not (present).
On the shoreline between the conscious and the unconconscious, past and future no longer exist. This is the dimension of spirit.
