New Moon May 2023 ~ Demon Slayer


The New Moon 19 May 2023 at 28º Taurus Decan 3. Aspect: Sextile Mars & Neptune. Fixed Star: Miram in the right arm of Perseus. Tarot Card: 7 Of Pentacles. Healing Crystal: Prehnite with Epidote.

New Moon in Taurus decan 3

Usually, the moon is exalted in the sign of Taurus, but it is not such a guarantee in this decan, as Saturn’s influence as the decan’s ruler often means there are great obstacles to surmount on life’s testing path. However, Moon Taurus 3 does not totally prevent success. At this new moon, any fame will come with a certain amount of notoriety. The Moon is susceptible to the melancholia of its Saturn rulership.

This period is good for those who can make a career out of doom and gloom! But others could find the pain that comes with such a sensitive moon intolerable. The temptation to self-medicate with drugs (Especially alcohol) can be high at this time and depression could be a problem too. There is a tendency to self-destruction and those touched by this moon might feel their lives are fated, even cursed for the next month.

However, at the end of this period, you might realize that if fate hasn’t killed you then it has actually made you stronger! Generally, the Moon in Taurus 3 supports those who are life’s troopers! Bruised and sometimes battered, they will get back up to proudly show off their battle scars.

Around this May new moon 2023, there can be night terrors. Dreams will be extremely vivid and can sometimes be prophetic. On the positive side, dreams can also be uplifting and inspiring if we switch off the news for long enough. A ritual to banish phobias and paranoia would be good at this time.

New Moon Tarot Card

The tarot card associated with this decan is the seven of pentacles. Karmically it shows a succession of lives that have been extremely physically and emotionally demanding.

” You have been working so hard for such a long time that you probably haven’t had much time to think about such things. If you don’t, then you run the risk of being a slave to your goals forever or just working for the sake of working. You do not need to make any drastic moves or any changes that will destroy all you have worked so hard for. However, you now have the time to raise your head from all the heavy work and take stock of how you proceed from here.” ~ teachmetarot.

So there is reward here, as this is a card that is about harvest and hard work beginning to pay off. It all depends just how much work you really have done. In this decan, one reaps what one sows and there is no way to cheat nature.

New Moon Fixed Star

Miram is found in the left arm of Perseus, the famous slayer of gorgon Medusa. Unlike the more famous stars in Perseus like demon star Algol and the slayer star Capulus, Miram has no specific interpretation. However, “The constellation is indicative of events affecting large numbers of people, especially those events caused by major meteorological phenomena.

When prominent in a natal chart it is said to denote adventurous individuals, but also those who are less than honest in their dealings with others.” [1] So there is still an edge to this star but more in a dishonest, lying sense. All may not be what it seems, but Miram is not as treacherous as its neighbours.

New Moon Healing Crystal

Use Prehnite to ward off nightmares, especially those caused by stress and anxiety. This soothing green crystal offers serenity and protection, easing deep fears and phobias. Prehnite helps you understand what caused your nightmares in the first place.

It can be beneficial for transmuting dark thoughts into positive ones. By grounding excessive anger or nervous energy, Prehnite also encourages peace and calm. 

One of Prehnite’s strengths is that it quietens an overactive and anxious mind. It helps to settle you down, especially if you are prone to talk incessantly out of nerves. This stone also allows you to release deep fears and release past life issues that are triggering your current worries. You can also get Prehnite with Epidote which boosts the protection factor if you think you need it!

“Prehnite promotes unconditional love and stimulates spiritual growth. It is a wonderful stone for bringing peace, joy, and harmony into one’s life. Epidote is used to give yourself protection from physical harm when engaged in dangerous pursuits. It is also used to help someone injured by either physical or mental trauma. It soothes, protects, and guards.” ~
