New Moon: 6 Taurus 27

Rest and Abide

 

Generally speaking, there is a beautiful simplicity to a new moon in Taurus. It’s a call to steer the body into a comfortable position and rest it long enough for the mind to find its matching harmonious frequency: Here there is no clutter, only blissful sufficiency.

 

Since the new moon in Aries 28 days ago, we’ve been called to stake our claim and take on the proverbial plough harness. We should feel tired and we should heed that feeling. Yet, there’s another reason to pause. Just as we must fit our catnaps or zone out times around the demands of life, we will need contemplative time to consider how our grand plan has had to shapeshift for the hard earth of reality. This just can’t be rushed; the mind’s strategic survival structures need time to get the message that it’s really alright to chill out. And then, whilst snoozing or strolling or staring out the window, a ‘fix’ or a peaceful acceptance can come.

 

And so, generally speaking and regardless of any and all matter hitting the fan, the Universe invites you to rest and abide as much as possible. Continue to pace yourself, too, watching that Mars in Gemini doesn’t scatter your energies all over the place, but diversifies the ways in which you progress towards your target.

Meanwhile, we’ve got a longer cycle coming into its 2nd of three passes: Mercury in conjunction with Uranus in Aries…

 

Time flies when you are swamped, right? Since the turning of the year, many of us have determined where our personal energy is best channeled and begun the necessary networking and bridge-work. We are on our way. We’ve been exposed to different points of view and consciously or not, refined our own perspective. Along the way, we may well have had breakthroughs or surpassed our expectations in a particular area of relating to other/s and, in doing so, were impressed with what ‘çame out’ of us. Yes! We navigated best we could between a rock and a hard place, came out on a new ledge…and watched ourselves transform that position using a combination of our own lessons learned (maintaining flexibility) and fixed gaze on our long term goal/s (holding consistent)…

 

And now, over the course of this week, another cycle is rising – A hardwired sequence of thoughts/behaviors/assumptions/prophecies will be forced to a sudden stop. Somehow, lightning strikes and there is suddenly ‘space’…a split second later, there sits a new thought and it blows our mind. Wow! It’s as if what we finally grasp as being True in one area of our life must also hold to be true in a general life-creed sense; like ripples of evolution in all dimensions.

 

Mercury plus Uranus in Aries = shocking, piercing, penetrating, of high art/craft, progressive, authentic, inspired by something greater than Self, life changing. So, sure, you could shout and scream, attack with a knife or enlist a posse to encircle and crush the enemy camp. Certainly, this isn’t gentle energy and you may well be on the receiving end from someone who probably desperately needs some time out. The bottom line is that this energy is on tap for ALL of us even as we must individually wield it. Let’s be Taurus about it: slow to anger, quick to see that this, too, shall pass. Let’s keep on doing our best to apply these symbolic descriptors towards peaceful co-thriving.

 

Wishing you a magical new moon,

On Cycles

 

Pluto stations retrograde on April 20th opening a tunnel into our approach to the natural cycle of endings and beginnings through September 29. This review may bring to our awareness where we may not be allowing the natural “death” of something to take its course by regenerating in a transformed state. Before change can happen, we need to let go of the old, the tired, the worn out, the dysfunctional. If we can keep everything moving through their natural cycles, we remain constantly refreshed. Pluto’s subtle alchemic process is a quiet, under the radar energetic force that works regardless of how conscious we are of it. The more aware we are, however, the greater traction we may experience in becoming at one with the magical rhythms of the cosmos.  – Gray Crawford (link)

Full Moon: 21 Libra 33

cypFM11april17

Libra is the life sector wherein we most comfortably relate on an intellectual level. It’s those situations that bring a natural pause for reflection on the actions and reactions of others, whoever they may be to us, and the effects of our own. Libra is how we strategize for justice and equality. We present our case, whether to our BFF or a high court judge. Here we use language and gesture to convey intent and draw satisfaction. The archetype ruler of Libra is Venus and to catch her drift for us personally in the here and now, we need to check what she is up to.

At this full moon, it would be very true to say that Venus is between a rock and a hard place. Relationally, we may feel we are role playing more towards one end of the spectrum or the other in our daily interactions, i.e. the Martyr or the Overcomer. Obviously, there is all the difference between these two…and it’s notable that we can be either one of these with different Others all in the same day.

However, it would also be very true to say that Venus is most potent at this moment in time and so whatever agenda or point you are projecting is sure to draw great interest. (There will, however, be no commitment made that you should count on until after the 15th; Full moons are for getting the full picture, not necessarily signing on any dotted line. That being said, any project or mission you have been continuously working/re-working on since late January should yield clear results – including contractual obligations. Memory prompters can be found here.)

Mars in Taurus sextiles Venus at this full moon and that adds solid, hard-working, persistent and fixed efforts to the agenda of the Martyr or the Overcomer. Make sure you have double-checked your position on matters because whatever you decide to do, you’ll be entrenched.

A new client said that life feels like death by a thousand paper cuts lately and that sounds about right to me. In other words, we aren’t in mortal danger but there is a jostling, a hurry-up-already vibe in the air: we’ve got this list of things to do and every time we turn around, somebody or something is slowing us down – and it stings! These are the times we are living in. You have only to look at events on the world stage. Fortunately, our own little hiccups, messes and/or crises will require far fewer diplomatic summits.

At this full moon, it is highly likely that you can find respite and harmony with that small group of Others you would define as family, with those who appreciate All of who you are. Spend some time in an atmosphere that feels secure and safe to you. Just walk right in and tell them how much you appreciate the Space they provide for you. If you can, host a Space for others. They may need it more than you know.
