Fixed stars Algol and Capulus are associate with violence and misfortune. Large numbers of people could be affected by extreme weather conditions or other catastrophic events.

New Moon Meaning

A new moon represents the end of one cycle and the beginning of another new 28 day cycle. Sun conjunct Moon gives an invigorating burst of energy and initiative. So this is an excellent time for making a fresh start, turning over a new leaf, or starting a new project. You can also question old habits, behaviors and beliefs as you search for new and inventive ways to make progress.

The effects of the May 15 New Moon will last four weeks up to the June 13 New Moon. The best time for making a fresh start and for beginning new projects is during the first two weeks of this new moon cycle. This waxing phase of the Moon lasts from May 15 to the May 29 Full Moon.

New Moon May 2018 Astrology

The May 15 new moon is located at 24°36′ Taurus Sign but the astrological influence comes from two stars with Perseus Constellation as shown below. Perseus gives an intelligent, strong, bold and adventurous nature, but a tendency to lying. [1] The constellation is indicative of events affecting large numbers of people, especially those events caused by major meteorological phenomena. [2]

  • 24°26′ Taurus – Capulus, M34 Persei
  • 24°36′ Taurus – New Moon
  • 26°24′ Taurus – Algol, β Persei

Fixed star Algol causes misfortune, violence, decapitation, hanging, electrocution and mob violence. It gives a dogged and violent nature that causes death to the native or others. It is the most evil star in the heavens. Both the Sun and Moon conjunct Algol are supposed to give a violent death or extreme sickness.  [1]

However, Capulus and Algol both have a very positive side to them. If a person lives life with an honest sense of purpose to it, or least to tries to live up to a philosophy, religion or ideal, then all will go well. [3] There are many examples of Algol celebrities that prove this positive side to these notorious fixed stars.

No matter what you think of Donald Trump’s politics or personal life, fixed star Algol conjunct his Midheaven has done wonders for his public profile and career. In fact, as leader of the free world, Trump has the most important career in the world, and possibly in the history of the world.

Likewise, a new moon conjunct Algol can lead to good things if you approach your new moon goals with an honest sense of purpose. When setting your new moon goals and working towards them, try to live up to a philosophy, religion or ideal.

May 2018 New Moon Aspects

New Moon semisextile Venus is a subtle but positive influence. It creates opportunities for love and money if you can take the initiative in these areas. Being proactive in relationships by simply giving love can heal any old wounds. So a hug and a kiss may be all it takes to put any dramas behind you with loved ones.

New Moon trine Pluto results in intense and deep experiences. You will have greater power and influence over your own life, allowing for positive transformations. You can also exert this greater power and influence over the events in your life and over the people around you. Personal or professional problems can also be more easily resolved now.

Mars square Uranus gives a tendency to act rashly without regard for the consequences. This could lead to great disruption and increases the risk of violence posed by fixed star Algol. An original outlook may lead to works of creative brilliance or scientific breakthroughs but you should avoid impulsive actions and taking dangerous risks. Lack of attention and concentration can lead to accidents, especially as when driving or working with electricity or technology. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

Jupiter trine Neptune reaches full potency on May 25 and is encouraging hope, generosity and community spirit. You may undertake a spiritual quest to seek the truth. As your personal value system or morals reach a higher standard, you will find that selflessly helping others brings great satisfaction. You charitable nature may extend to environmental causes or animal welfare. Social justice becomes important with more interest in human rights and the plight of refugees and other innocent victims or war and greed.

New Moon May 2018 Summary

  1. Wow. This might turn out to be a dramatic day for me.
    My Descendant is at 25Tau43, and thus within orb of conjunctions to the New Moon, Algol AND Capulus.
    I have a sword. Should it stay safely sheathed on this day – or do I sharpen it just in case? Hmmmm…
    Tr North Node is conjunct my Pluto.
    Tr Saturn is conjunct my Anti-Vertex and South Node (I think of this as being opposite my Vertex and North Node).
    Tr Neptune is conjunct my IC. I have ongoing problems with a leaky roof. Is my home dissolving around me?
    So, if you don’t hear from me again, you’ll know why…

  2. Ummm… my natal Saturn is at 27 degrees Virgo, would this trine help? As the new moon touches my Saturn and happens in my 10th house would this new moon relate to my career? Thanks!

    • Yes that will help because the new moon and Mars form a transiting grand trine with your Saturn. For it to affect your career I think it should aspect your Midheaven, not just be in your 10th House.

      • Thank you Jamie. If it doesn’t affect carrer which area may be affected? Mars rules my MC would this make any difference?

  3. New moon conjunct moon and mars in 10 house. Moon is ruler of 12, mars rules 10. What to expect Jamie?

  4. Thank you for this info. I was wanting to contact a sibling about a serious matter and wanted to do so on May 16 because of the new moon. I am not concerned about my being irrational/losing my head (Algol) but I guess I have to worry about the potential that the sibling may react that way…. I DO want the serious issue to be FELT (sadness, not anger) by the sibling – but not in such a way that would backfire on me. Any feedback would be appreciated. Thank you!

  5. In Taurus lies my moon, my Venus, my Saturn, and my 7th house. What can I expect?

  6. Whoa.. tf? IN FACT, Trump is NOT a leader of the “free world”. Have you done research on this term and the origin!? We do not have one, nor a free world or a single leader!! He isn’t leading shit but blind people down a treacherous path. The Chancellor of Germany was offered the title as “Leader of the Free World” after opening land to refugees and she declined it. He also does not have the most important career or position! These are purely ignorant and conditioned opinions. How did Astrology King.. a platform meant to share about cosmic matters.. turn into spewing some narrow-minded, bullshit, political propaganda !?

    • Woah.. Seems like you are so endowed with Trump hating syndrome that out of every thing this person wrote thats all you took from it.. American presidents have always been called the leaders of the free world im sure the author wasnt promoting Trump! They were simply using a term that has been used for a long time. And if you look at the position of the planets they talk about ,during certain positions has been benificial for Trump! Coincidence? Maybe! Or maybe not! Thats all they were saying! You political turds are so caught up in your feelings about the devestating loss of the “demoncraps” whoops i mean democrats that you are consumed with such hatred for this guy that any positive mention of the man causes your head to explode!! Im not even political i could give a shit less about any political party or person but if the guy does good things then acknowledge it use it to your benefit and move on with your life! Trump could litterally find the cure for cancer and people like you would find a million reasons of why its bad or wrong! This is a page of astrology and you made it political by blowing up over a term that has been used for decades! Chill the hell out dude! Trump is President.. He will probably be president for a long time.. Get over it! Why let it consume you? You cant change it! Look for something positive! No president has ever been able to make everyone happy! But every president has done certain things to benefit our country! If all trump does good is bring jobs in for everybody (fact: african american and latino american unemployment is at a all time low stock markets are hitting high and mass companies are reinvesting into America! ) then so be it! Atleast he did that! You people focus so much on the negative that your literally making yourselves miserable and insane! “Did they say Trump!!! ATTACK!!” Its foolish! Get over yourself and worry about changing yourself this new moon.. (Your way of thinking may be a great place to start js…) Anyways! Best of luck to you! Peace Love and Light my friend! Blessed be!

  7. Does the fact that both Uranus and Mars are at the very end of a sign mean anything? E.g. a violent ending of a phase? Wouldn’t be surprised if there would be more terrorist attacks and earth quakes coming weeks. Maybe Trump ends something violently? His new moon square mars and uranus trine AC and mars quincunx AC. We’ll see what happens.
