Want to Know the Energies You Can Expect from This New Moon?

A Special Message About Manifestation Grid From Reverend Pauline Southard

The Taurus New Moon arrives quite quietly on Tuesday afternoon, May 11, 2021. After an incredibly tumultuous siege of volatile New Moons for the last year and a half, we can look forward to a relatively serene lunar cycle with just a few clouds along the way to keep it real.

At its best, Taurus is lovely earth energy. Taurus time signals the lush blossoming of the earth. Flowers bloom, trees unfurl their leaves and warm breezes remind us that summer fun is around the corner. Taurus rules enjoyment of all of the physical and sensual pleasures of life on earth, completely appropriate for the first of the four earth signs of the Zodiac. Used well, Taurus is patient, reliable and dependable. Taurus will always try to help in very practical ways and will be there for you right to the end.  When Taurus energy is used unwisely, it is inflexible, stagnant, amazingly stubborn and self-indulgent.

This New Moon is placed in the 9th house of the chart for those of us living on the east coast of the USA. This house, the natural home of fiery Sagittarius, will give this placid Taurus New Moon some needed inspiration. We yearn to travel and begin to see what options are viable in a country still grappling with the CoVid pandemic. Families begin to reunite. Our relationships with our in-laws for better or worse will occupy more of our energy than they have in a while.

The 9th house is the house of spirituality, philosophy and wisdom. With the New Moon in Taurus, we are called to find ways to combine the fire of Sagittarius with earth of Taurus. Try forest bathing, the Japanese practice of immersing yourself in nature in a mindful way. Forest bathing has been found to reduce stress and have a positive impact on blood pressure. It has been proven to reduce anger, anxiety, depression, and sleeplessness. You can practice forest bathing in any safe nature space. The main principles are to go quietly silence and slowly. Use your senses to find things in nature that bring you peace and happiness.

Planting a garden is such a joyful activity during this lunar cycle. Tuning into each individual plant and being with it mindfully will enrich your experience. Consciously slow your breathing as you do this and notice how you are feeling. You may receive messages from your plants as you do this. Don’t judge OR dissect them but write them down so you can refer to them later.

Expect headlines that involve the Supreme Court. A surprise retirement or unexpected decision may cause some last minute change of plans at the national level.

Hygeia, the asteroid that has figured prominently in all of my Corona Virus predictions will become involved in the ongoing squabble between Uranus and Saturn during this lunar cycle. Expect surprising news regarding the pandemic at the Full Moon on May 26, 2021, which also will be the first lunar eclipse of the year. Lunar eclipse energy is often very emotional. It is worth pointing out that the Sun will have moved into Gemini and will be opposing the Moon in Sagittarius, so there will be a definite shift in the energy we have been feeling. One possible manifestation is that here in the USA, our CoVid vaccination rates simply reach a plateau and stagnate there. Other parts of the world may experience unexpected sudden surges of the pandemic.  On the other hand, perhaps current vaccines will be approved for expanded use. New vaccines or new treatments could win approval.   Uranus is a wild card. It is always unwise to make predictions about Uranian aspects. Uranus should come with a warning, expect the completely unexpected!

The other cloud looming on the horizon of this otherwise sunny New Moon is the second Mercury retrograde of the year. This Mercury retrograde begins on May 29, 2021 and ends on June 22, 2021.  Mercury retrograde occurs three times a year for approximately three weeks at a time. The standard astrological advice is to reflect and plan rather than to move ahead with new projects. Things start to slow down and become more difficult as Mercury begins to slow down prior to moving retrograde.

This Mercury retrograde will be very potent as Mercury travels retrograde in the sign of Gemini which it rules. Gemini is all about communication, socializing and transportation. Be sure to back up your computers, laptops and phones. Make sure you double and triple check plans and trips, whether they are virtual or actual. If you are depending on Zoom or similar platforms for business or school having a secondary device could save the day. Perhaps car buying or leasing could be put off until Mercury goes direct. Watch out all my Gemini and Sagittarius friends. You will be most impacted, closely followed by those with Virgo and Pisces Sun signs.

This month, I once again consulted the “Dreams of Gaia Tarot” by Ravynne Phelan, my favorite deck of the 21st century!  I asked the cards, what do we need to know or do to flow harmoniously with the energies of this New Moon and manifest its most positive potential?

I pulled the major arcana card, “Abundance.” Ms. Phelan’s keywords for this card are abundance, giving, receiving, love and appreciation. She goes on to tell us,” When the Abundance card appears in a reading, it symbolizes a need to embrace an abundance consciousness. Try to let go and relax. Allow things to flow. Be in the moment. Put love first. Make time for what we love.”  She also emphasizes this important spiritual truth, “Abundance embodies a way of living that does not change regardless of whether you have more or less in your life. Abundance is contentment born of fulfillment and appreciation.”  This can be difficult for many of us right now, because of all the chaos and uncertainty in the world. It is wonderful that this lunar cycle will give us a chance to stop and take a breath, if we choose to.

Traditionally I put two or three special crystals into the Manifestation Grid that help us to work with the astrological energies of the current New Moon. These additional crystals will energize the Grid and make it even more effective since I choose crystals that reflect the energy of the totality of the chart, not just the sign that the New Moon is in. I would encourage you to work with them as well since they are perfect for this lunar cycle. I love the energy of both of these crystals and I hope that you will enjoy them as well.

My first choice this month is the beautiful Emerald. Emerald is a life-affirming stone and one of infinite patience. It is known as the crystal of successful love and represents great loyalty and integrity. The green of Emerald calls to mind the beautiful green of the blossoming forest that is at its most vibrant now. In ancient Greece and Rome, emerald was said to be the gemstone of the goddess Venus, ruler of Taurus.

Moss Agate is a perfect stone for this lunation. With its earthy energy, it brings in a sense of peace and stability. It is a powerful energetic cleanser. Moss Agate is also a stone of abundance in all forms, tying in with wonderful synchronicity of our tarot card this month, Abundance.  In the workplace, it draws new business and gradual expansion, increasing prosperity over time. It is good for small businesses and the self-employed.  

I have been so grateful for the overwhelming positive response to the Manifestation Grid that I started seven years ago. I love seeing people put their requests into the grid and hearing about all the positive results so many of you have had. Now it is possible to either use the Manifestation Grid in person when you come in to Karma or you may continue to put your requests into the Grid at a distance as you have been doing during the time that the store was closed.

Archangel Metatron, my primary guide had channeled this method to help you to put your requests in remotely:

#1- Please write your intentions on a piece of paper with the date, feeling love in your heart as you do OR for ANY positive purpose whatsoever!

#2- Visualize yourself accomplishing your desire. (I would certainly appreciate if you could also request the disappearance of the Corona Virus and the quick healing of ALL of those affected and the healing of all inequality and hate ), feeling love in your heart as you do OR for ANY positive purpose whatsoever!

#3- Using the picture on the Karma website, intend to put your request into the grid just as you would if you were in the store. Archangel Metatron has told me that he will help you to make that happen. You do NOT need to be good at visualizing! Every morning I will be charging the Grid with long distance Reiki and other powerful energies to help make your wishes come true.

#4- When you feel that the process is complete you may either dispose of the paper or put it on your altar, refrigerator or paste it into your journal. It is helpful but not necessary to spend a few minutes every day for the next thirty days repeating Step 3. Your intentions will be active in the Grid for the next 30 days. !

 I am so happy that A Time for Karma is now open. Our wonderful owner, Vonda and our fabulous staff have done a terrific job to make sure your shopping experience is both magical AND safe!

Karma is where my heart is. Although all of the readers are still reading from home at this time, it is possible to connect with all of us by visiting A Time for Karma’s reader page, https://atimeforkarma.com/spiritual-counselors/ to arrange a reading.

 I have been deeply touched by the positive feedback at I have gotten from my phone clients. Although I started my career as a reader working as a phone psychic many years ago, I have read almost exclusively at Karma in person for the last 20 years. I have found that there has been an incredible amount of high vibrational information that is coming through now during my phone readings. Reading for all of you has been one of the most rewarding experiences I have ever had.  You can connect with me either by e-mail: karmickat@aol.com or by cell: 516-445-4242.

Wishing you a Taurus lunar cycle filled with peace and love!

A special thank you to The Crystal Vaults online crystal encyclopedia for their extensive information about crystals. It is unusual to find a site that is so comprehensive.

Last Month's New Moon Message

The April New Moon arrives late in the evening on Sunday, April 11, 2021. This Aries New Moon feels just like a ram that has been penned up in a small cage for way to long and wants to get out there and run around. However, all it can do is just use its horns to attack the cage!

There’s an edgy, unsettled feeling this weekend. Everyone seems just a little off, more irritable and sensitive than usual. Lots and lots of pent up energy.

What on earth? What is happening? This is NOT what Aries is all about! At its best Aries the Ram is bold brave leadership energy. Aries are natural humanitarians, warm, loving and charismatic. Aries energy is ambitious, optimistic and energetic.

When Aries energy is expressed unskillfully, it is pushy, selfish, insensitive, impulsive, impatient, bad tempered and at its worst bullying.

However, like almost all of the New Moon charts from the last two years, this Aries New Moon has more than its share of inherent contradictions.

For all of us on the east coast on the USA, the Sun, Moon and all of the planets are below the horizon except for Mars.  This is a very introspective type of chart, quieter and less able to reach out into the world and make a difference. Enough to make all that Aries energy completely frustrated!

Further, the New Moon is accompanied in Aries by Mercury and Venus multiplying that red hot Aries energy. To complete this energetic conflagration, this New Moon and its entourage square Pluto. Pluto is the energy of unyielding major change. When Pluto is active in your chart, you tend to feel like you are compelled to take action and make changes, even if normally you would hesitate or make another choice.

Square is the aspect (special angle) where planets are about 90° apart in the Zodiac. The classical astrological meaning of a square is that the powers involved are in conflict, so that they cause trouble for one another. The square acts like a set of grinding gears.

We can expect that both out in the world and in our own lives this will translate into some very uncomfortable feelings. Unfortunately, we can expect to see national headlines that chronicle the continuing polarized disagreements between the Democrats and the Republicans that seemingly have no resolution. I’m concerned that this may spill over into violence that will only make things worse. Logical and fair compromise is the path forward. So far, our political system has been acting as though our two political parties are at war with each other, rather than representing the differing ideas and viewpoints of the American people.

Senseless destruction and violence never result in true justice, no matter how righteous the issue. I am concerned that this New Moon cycle has all the ingredients for situations where we will be tempted to act explosively and compulsively without thinking about the consequences.

This is one of the most intense and volatile New Moon charts I have ever analyzed. While we often cannot control the circumstances around us, we certainly can control our response to these situations. If we are aware of what to expect, we have the ability to stop and take a breath before we say or do something we may regret. Knowing what to anticipate is one of the wonderful gifts astrology offers us.

Looking beneath the surface of this lunation also reveals some nuggets of gold, although they may be tarnished when we initially find them. Cleaning them up will reveal their true beauty.

Aries is the first of the Zodiac signs and so is always about new beginnings. This year those fresh starts may be delayed but it is a great time to make specific plans.

For those of us on the east coast of the USA, this New Moon is in the 5th house of children, lovers and creativity. Any creative endeavors will be a terrific outlet especially if they raise our heart rate, get us to laugh and make a mess!  

 This month, I once again consulted the “Dreams of Gaia Tarot” by Ravynne Phelan, my favorite deck of the 21st century!  I asked the cards, what do we need to know or do to flow harmoniously with the energies of this New Moon and manifest its most positive potential?

I pulled the major arcana card, “The Father.” This card is the perfect example of synchronicity. In traditional Rider Waite tarot decks, The Father is known as the “The Emperor”, the embodiment of positive masculine authoritative energy. He is strong and confident, ready to lead by virtue of his power and physical strength. On the classic Rider Waite tarot card, he is sitting on a throne that is adorned with carvings of ram’s heads, signifying Aries the Ram. Amazing! You just can’t make this stuff up!

If it was just that simple and straightforward!! As I have discussed in this column all of that dynamic Aries energy is repressed during this New Moon. Ms. Phelan’s rendition of the Emperor shows us another approach to male energy which can serve as a guide for how to navigate this New Moon successfully. Her “Father” card, although strong and decisive, is a nurturer, who takes responsibility for his actions. He is a man of integrity and honesty. His strength comes from his ability to be empathic and sensitive.

I decided that I could use his guidance on how to move forward during this lunation. I visualized entering the card and sat down on the grass at his feet. He took a look at me and said, “Child, you need to blow off some steam. I dare you to race me up that path to the top of the hill.” He gave me a look that made my inner imp rise to the challenge. I jumped up and started running. He quickly caught up to me, his pet feline running just behind us. I stumbled and he picked me up, as though I was light as a feather and carried me the rest of the distance to the top of the hill. As he set me down, I looked around and saw that I was in a magical place. An enormous pond was set in a grove of trees. Just to the right of it was a small but charming cottage that looked like fairies had built it. The path to the lavender front door was surrounded on path sides by a somewhat straggly looking garden. The Father looked at me and said, “OK, time to play. Let’s skip some stones. I looked down and saw a pile of perfect flat skipping stones. The Father laughed and said, “Let me show you how it’s done.” He picked up a stone and threw it. It immediately started making a series of skips until it was soon out of sight. He then showed me how to do it and very soon my stones had skipped so far that were out of sight as well. Eventually I started to get tired and the three of us sat down in the arbor by the house where crystal clear glasses of water with rainbows sparkling in them were waiting for us. He asked me if I was willing to help him fix up his garden. He promised that it would be a fun and magical experience. It most certainly was! When we were finished, he told me to come visit anytime I wanted. I would always be welcome!

I encourage you to do this meditation for yourself and see what happens. Always start by energetically protecting yourself, asking for help and clearly stating your intention.

On this plane of existence, I would encourage you to look up John Churchman and his farm. (http://www.sweetpeafriends.com/) Moonrise Farm is the home of some very special farm animals and their canine, feline and human friends. John and his wife Jennifer have written and illustrated many wonderful children’s books- perfect for the children in your life and your own inner child. They have a wonderful Facebook page as well which chronicles rural life. John Churchman embodies the idea of The Father, a man who is strong enough to make a rural farm in Vermont work as well as sensitive and creative enough to write some of the most beautiful and charming books for young children that I have ever read. You could start with, “The SheepOver” and “Brave Little Finn.”

Traditionally I put two or three special crystals into the Manifestation Grid that help us to work with the astrological energies of the current New Moon. These additional crystals will energize the Grid and make it even more effective since I choose crystals that reflect the energy of the totality of the chart, not just the sign that the New Moon is in. I would encourage you to work with them as well since they are perfect for this lunar cycle. I love the energy of both of these crystals and I hope that you will enjoy them as well.

I decided to keep the strong and powerful Bloodstone in the grid for this lunar cycle. During the Pisces New Moon lunar cycle it helped us to regain our energy and strengthen our bodies. During the Aries moon cycle, this amazing crystal will help to ease frustration, irritation and anger. Bloodstone will ground the torrential Aries energy through our Root Chakra and then into Mother Earth so we feel more in control and calmer.

Lava Rock is a natural choice this month for the Manifestation Grid. It is a magnetic rock that forms quite quickly as the magma from an erupting volcano solidifies. Hence, it is associated with the elements of both fire and air. Lava Stone is a grounding stone that strengthens one’s connection to Mother Earth.

It gives us strength and courage, allowing us to keep our balance through times of change.  A calming stone, it is very useful in dissipating anger.  It promotes positive changes where needed. Lava Stone enhances fertility. (This New Moon IS in the 5th house of fertility for those of us on the east coast of the USA.)  Lava Stone is a wonderful natural aromatherapy essential oil diffuser.  Simply add a few drops of your favorite essential oil and enjoy!

I love seeing people put their requests into the grid and hearing about all the positive results so many of you have had.

New Moon Manifestation Ritual

During the new moon phase the moon goes from smaller to bigger so it is a great time to manifest anything you would like to increase.

Hand write a list of what you wish to manifest on a piece of paper. Be very specific!

Go outside and read your wishes aloud to the moon. Afterward thank the moon and the universe for listening.

Fold your paper and keep it in a safe and prominent place, such as your altar. Read your list daily, outside if possible, thanking the moon and the universe every time.

Do this every day until the full moon.
When the moon is full, read your list one final time, then burn it in the flame of a candle, sending it up to the universe.

Trust and know that your wishes will be manifested at the perfect time and in the perfect way for you.
