New Moon May 2019 Astrology ~ Taurus Decan 2
With this Taurus new moon, we can see the clear connection to the collective unconscious since Cetus the whale/sea-monster is symbolic of the communal psyche of the world. What you get then is an over-absorption of everything that is out there in the cosmos, seen and unseen and from dimensions that may have a positive or negative agenda. Good examples of the exalted Moon in this decan are Carl Jung and Edgar Cayce who had this natally.
Those touched by this new moon then can be easily manipulated by these pan-dimensional forces so they can have difficulty discerning their own emotions from those around them. This sensitivity, of course, can work in a positive manner too, where artists can pick up the mood of the audience and modulate their performance to fit. This is a sensuous and empathic new moon, so it would be a great time to book a massage. This new moon has healing hands and green fingers due to the Mercurial influence of the decan generally. (This is the Virgo section of Taurus.)
At a personal level, those positively influenced by this Taurus new moon will make fantastic hosts and throw lavish parties, but they may pay for it the next day as this new moon loves to indulge. Generally, because the moon is exalted in Taurus as a whole, it tends to be happy in this decan and is generally able to overcome the negative aspects of its fixed stars. Just be aware that Menkar can be problematic as described by Vivian Robson (1). Bernadette Brady sees Menkar more positively, however (2)
Menkar 14º: “Mental anxiety, hatred of the vulgar, ill-will of women, danger from thieves, sickness to native and family, loss of marriage partner or near relative, quarrels, legal losses, legacies and inheritances attended by much evil.”  “Emotionally committed to, or responsive to, the needs of the collective. One’s actions have far-reaching effects. Emotions run high in general public” 
New Moon May 2019 ~ Fixed Stars Menkar & Almach
In Taurus decan 2, art and beauty become a potent weapon. Menkar is situated in the open jaw of the Sea Monster that was sent to ravage Andromeda. It is considered unfortunate. The Ebertins say: “This star has a Saturnine character, corresponding to impediments of many kinds, worries and tests of endurance. Unjustified enmities, hardening and toughening these people in some ways.”
The major problem with this star seems to be trouble with inheritance and throat ailments. Robson’s harsh words emphasis Menkar’s dark side; “Strong and uncontrolled passions, jealousy, Evil associates, immoral, violent…” are just some of the descriptions, but again this depends on the planet and how it is placed in the chart.
The appreciation for the arts and aesthetics cannot be avoided with Almach in Andromeda. This stunning triple star glows alternately between orange, emerald and blue. Robson gives this star Venusian qualities “It gives honour, eminence and artistic ability.” But the orange star in the ensemble brings out the Martian qualities of ambition and business savvy, hence the importance of presentation in many of the celebrities who have this aspect natally.
The Ebertins say Almach ” is supposed to give a cheerful nature with a liking for change, diversion and amusement. The popularity of these people will bring benefits from others. Almach is a double star. It has a yellowish-reddish companion which is supposed to have a Martian character. Both stars are moving around a centre point. This is supposed to bring about the change in the preponderance of the Venus and Mars character alternatively.” 
The 2nd Face Of Taurus
“A man with a body like a camel, with cow’s hooves on his fingers, and he is completely covered with a torn linen cloth. He desires to work on the land, sow and build. This is a face of nobility, power and rewarding for the people” ~ Picatrix

New Moon May 2019 Aspects
Since this is a new moon we will look at both aspects to the sun and the moon.
Moon quincunx Ceres like all the 150-degree aspects strives for perfection. Since both Ceres and the Moon are ultra-feminine at this new moon we could be obsessed with the quest for the perfect female. In a woman, this could be about perfecting her own beauty, but in a man, this could manifest in the quest for the perfect woman. This may result in an insatiable, but also restless sex drive. There could be both comfort eating or comfort kissing for those touched by this new moon.
Sun quincunx Ceres spurs those touched by this new moon to great heights in an attempt to rise above a less than satisfactory mothering experience. The quincunx aspect will find highly unusual ways to stimulate production. There is usually a dark opulence to creations at this time. There can be a blending of very gaudy style with the very spartan. This is an aspect of great contrasts. It will show up those who live in utter luxury and indulgence against those in great poverty. For some, the yearning action of the quincunx with Ceres gives a real craving, so there is a real urgency and hunger to succeed in order to fill the great dark void within.
New Moon May 2019 ~ Tarot Card
The tarot card associated with this May new moon is the 6 of pentacles.
“ It is a card of extremes. A card of having/not having, domination/submission, superiority/inferiority, generosity/meanness, supporting/not being supported, being appreciated/being used, teaching/learning, hiring/firing. The list could go on and on. However, one of its strong traditional associated meanings is charity or patronage. After experiencing difficulties or finding yourself in a bind, usually, financially, someone has stepped in to help out.” ~ teachmetarot.
You can see how this card fits into the position of being a Svengali or stage mother. Karmically one will have to use one’s material generosity genuinely and not as a means to control another. If you are on the receiving end, you will have to be careful not to lose your artistic integrity in securing your benefactor. Selling yourself out can be very tempting.
New Moon May 2019 ~ Summary
Summary to the new moon May 2019 report is contained in the above video (After 11 minutes). I realised some of my ‘magical’ conclusions are at odds with the go0gly gremlins so it is better to have my thoughts recorded in sound rather than as a new moon ‘spell’.
New Moon Healing Crystal ~ Chrysoprase
I chose the Chrysoprase as the new moon May healing crystal since it is actually associated with Taurus. This crystal allows us to get the most positive, grounding connection with Sun/Moon quincunx Ceres rather than her more negative, materialistic and smothering aspect. It will also bring the best out of Almach in Andromeda and helps protect us from any devouring sea monsters from the star Menkar!
Chrysoprase “ Like many green ray stones, it has a strong connection to nature and to the elemental beings. It brings the gift of natures growth and may connect you to Mother Gaia and to earth spirits. Green Chrysoprase brings through the energy of Divine Truth and a sense of justice, with the ability to release energy around and related to ego-based issues from the past.” ~ Healingcrystalsforyou
“Excellent for problem-solving and finding new approaches and angles, for anyone in the media, publicity or advertising and for writers of fiction to give both originality and realism.” 
“Chrysoprase is a stone of fertility and renewal and has been used in aiding efforts to bring new life into a family, a community, or an organization. Chrysoprase can help you seek and find productivity, progress, prosperity, material success, and advancement. It is a potent talisman for efforts directed at career advancement.” ~ Crystal Vaults
