Tonight’s new moon in Taurus brings some seriously positive cosmic energy



A new moon marks a new beginning, and this one is all about the good vibes. May brings a new moon in Taurus, which is all about feeling a renewed sense of enthusiasm, and a real zest for life (like we said, good vibes only).

“This is a new moon with some seriously positive cosmic energy,” Emma Howarth, GLAMOUR UK’s resident astrologer and author of The Astrology Almanac, tells us.

“It’s perfect for setting intentions and deciding what you REALLY want to bring into your life. Taurus is a sign that relishes indulgence, investment (especially in ourselves!) and self care – so it’s a good time to pull focus and start to push forwards with something that matters to you.”

What is a new moon?

A new moon occurs when the sun and moon align at the same star sign – which this month is tonight, 7 May 2024, in Taurus – and is when the moon is right between the earth and the sun, which makes it barely visible. In astrology, new moons often mark a time of manifestation and goal-setting, so tonight is the night to set some intentions.

But what exactly will this new moon bring for you? Emma gives the lowdown for each zodiac sign, below…
