New moon of May 8, 2024: these signs will have to work harder

The new moon in Taurus in May brings its share of energies and changes to our lives. For some signs, this lunation will be synonymous with calm and rest while for others, the period will be more agitated.

This year, the Ascension Bridge will begin with a new Moon scheduled for Wednesday, May 8 at 5:21 a.m., according to IMCCE (the Institute of Celestial Mechanics and Ephemeris Calculation), in the sign of Taurus. Prepare to review your plans for this long-awaited long weekend because this new moon could well impose a new rhythm on you that is essential to your personal balance.

Make no mistake, according to Isabelle Elvira, astrologer for Femme Actuelle magazine, this new moon does not invite you to throw yourself headlong into a new adventure or to take advantage of these public holidays to go on a whim to the other side of the globe. On the contrary, she suggests rather “anchoring yourself”, in order to “sit down in the present moment”. If the majority of signs will therefore take advantage of this lunation and the bridge that follows to recharge their batteries, and spend quality moments with the people who matter in their lives, others will have to give the best of themselves to achieve their objectives. Find out if your sign is one of those for whom the new moon will bring change!

A period of tranquility and serenity for the majority of signs

Among all the signs of the zodiac, two will be particularly affected by the positive effects of this new moon. As expected, Taurus is at the heart of the events of this lunation, taking advantage of this moment to share simple pleasures with loved ones. If you are of this sign, it is the time to agree to let go, to declare your feelings and “to stabilize your loves” reports the astrologer.

For its part, the sign of Scorpio is not left out since this period marks a real rebirth for it. He will experience the end of a cycle and the beginning of a new page which opens under better auspices. This is therefore the ideal time to conclude a contract and make new commitments. The energy of the new moon should accompany him in this important decision.

Two signs will need to redouble their efforts

On the Aquarius side, it is time to make decisions autonomously without waiting for a green light from the outside. “Separate yourself from these obstacles and these expectations and live simply,” advises astrologer Amandine Arcs in Madame Figaro magazine.

Likewise, Libra will not be able to take full advantage of this bridge to relax. Indeed, it is a busy period that awaits this sign with the challenge of success and public recognition of his work. It's time to give of yourself and not count your hours!
