April 22 – June 19 2020

April 22 at 7:26 pm PDT is a new Moon in Taurus that begins Metal Snake lunar month. The next new Moon on May 22 at 10:39 am PDT is a new Moon in Gemini that begins the second Metal Snake month in a row. 

This is because 2020 is both a solar and a lunar leap year. In Western lunar astrology, there will be two Cancer new Moons in June and July. In Chinese lunar astrology, there will be two Snake new Moons in April and May bringing many opportunities to shed the skins of the past, pare down, and simplify!

Snake is a symbol of wisdom and rebirth. Snake is a natural theologian who likes to coil up and contemplate, making these two months the time for introspection, planning, and seeking answers within. If home bound due to Covid-19, the quiet life blends better with Snake energy than any other astrology sign. The element Metal rules the lungs in Chinese medicine, so especially take care of your lungs. In this Metal Rat year, and during these two Metal Snake months, there is an emphasis on lung health, also a problem of Covid-19.

The new Moon, Sun, and Uranus are all in Earth sign Taurus. Taurus rules the 2nd house of money, possessions, and the material realm. So focus is on earthly matters of health, nutrition, and finances. But also Taurean beauty, and the earthly and sensual pleasures of life. The new Moon and Sun conjunction bring strength to your domestic life, and to your emotions about domestic life, all emphasized during this shut down. Uranus brings sudden change, and a unique way of expressing yourself. But it can also bring upset in your daily routine. 

The new Moon, Sun, and Uranus square Saturn in Aquarius. Due to the influence of Saturn, life events are slowed down. Circumstances force us to use caution, and restrictions can feel overwhelming during this pandemic. If overwhelmed, remember to take steps in small digestible bites during this Rat year when success arrives in autumn.

Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto are conjunct in late Capricorn and early Aquarius. Jupiter’s expansion, Saturn’s structure, and Pluto’s rebirth bring transformation on may levels, especially in the Capricorn financial and Aquarius political arenas.

Happy new Moon,
