New Moon May 2018 Astrology
The May 15 new moon is located at 24°36′ Taurus Sign but the astrological influence comes from two stars with Perseus Constellation as shown below. Perseus gives an intelligent, strong, bold and adventurous nature, but a tendency to lying.  The constellation is indicative of events affecting large numbers of people, especially those events caused by major meteorological phenomena. 
- 24°26′ Taurus – Capulus, M34 Persei
- 24°36′ Taurus – New Moon
- 26°24′ Taurus – Algol, β Persei
Fixed star Algol causes misfortune, violence, decapitation, hanging, electrocution and mob violence. It gives a dogged and violent nature that causes death to the native or others. It is the most evil star in the heavens. Both the Sun and Moon conjunct Algol are supposed to give a violent death or extreme sickness. 
However, Capulus and Algol both have a very positive side to them. If a person lives life with an honest sense of purpose to it, or least to tries to live up to a philosophy, religion or ideal, then all will go well.  There are many examples of Algol celebrities that prove this positive side to these notorious fixed stars.
No matter what you think of Donald Trump’s politics or personal life, fixed star Algol conjunct his Midheaven has done wonders for his public profile and career. In fact, as leader of the free world, Trump has the most important career in the world, and possibly in the history of the world.
Likewise, a new moon conjunct Algol can lead to good things if you approach your new moon goals with an honest sense of purpose. When setting your new moon goals and working towards them, try to live up to a philosophy, religion or ideal.
May 2018 New Moon Aspects

Being proactive in relationships by simply giving love can heal any old wounds. So a hug and a kiss may be all it takes to put any dramas behind you with loved ones.
New Moon trine Pluto results in intense and deep experiences. You will have greater power and influence over your own life, allowing for positive transformations. You can also exert this greater power and influence over the events in your life and over the people around you. Personal or professional problems can also be more easily resolved now.
Mars square Uranus gives a tendency to act rashly without regard for the consequences. This could lead to great disruption and increases the risk of violence posed by fixed star Algol. An original outlook may lead to works of creative brilliance or scientific breakthroughs but you should avoid impulsive actions and taking dangerous risks. Lack of attention and concentration can lead to accidents, especially as when driving or working with electricity or technology. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
Jupiter trine Neptune reaches full potency on May 25 and is encouraging hope, generosity and community spirit. You may undertake a spiritual quest to seek the truth. As your personal value system or morals reach a higher standard, you will find that selflessly helping others brings great satisfaction. You charitable nature may extend to environmental causes or animal welfare.
