If you have been having a difficult few weeks you are not alone. With the Lunar Eclipse on the Full Moon two weeks ago and the Grand Cardinal Cross a few days ago lots of things are being pulled to the surface. You may be finding yourself in situations that are triggering past pain or reopening old wounds, or you might be experiencing a story that is all too familiar, something that has replayed itself over and over again through your life, but this time it's hitting you harder. It's hard to not feel the weight of this. Breath a little life into it and feel some freedom in it. Try to look at your current experience as an experience to heal. Just as this is a time of feeling lots of pain and sadness, it is also a time of profound healing. If you can see what is happening to you for what it truly is, you will allow for such expansion in it, you will allow space for movement. The universe is holding up a mirror for where you still need healing, and trust that you know how to navigate it.
I have also felt that specifically there are lots of feelings of loss, being alone, sadness for what is no longer, for what you want but don't yet have. And it's our relationships with others that are triggering these feelings and mirroring to us where we still have work to do. Our relationships are such an important key right now. Weather it's one that's ending, a new one, your relationship to your parent(s)... they are all shifting and helping propel us in the direction we need to go. I read this the other day and it seemed to sum it all up, "... the quality of all of our relationships is a direct function of our relationship to ourselves. Since so much of our relationship to ourselves operates at an unconscious level, most of the drama and dynamics of our relationships to others and to the transcendent is expressive of our own person psychology. The best thing we can do for our relationships with others, and with the transcendent, then, is to render our relationship to ourselves more conscious." So let us be thankful for those people in our lives for showing us more about ourselves.
The other relationship that has a lot of energy around it right now as we move into the sign of Taurus is our relationship with Mother Nature. Again, the relationship we have with her is a mirror for the relationship we have with ourselves. Spend some time in nature with your bare feet on the earth, and listen. Let yourself grow roots into the earth, it's full of wisdom.
The Eclipse energy has been very strong, and will continue to be through this week. If you find that you are being really hard on yourself try to take a moment and receive. Do something kind for yourself, or simply feel how much the Earth and the Universe support you, what they provide for you, how they nourish you and guide you. It's ok to rest and receive, to learn the difference between doing and being. So much has been pulled up to the surface in such a short amount of time that we need to make space for it to integrate.
Taurus energy is also an excellent one for helping us to learn the lessons of self-love and self-worth. Notice if any feelings around either of those are coming up for you lately. And with all that is happening in the skies you might also notice an increase in synchronicities and that your intuition is more spot on and stronger.
New Moons are a perfect time to set some intentions and make some wishes, and with this Eclipse energy in the air you have the opportunity to really magnify what you desire in your heart, and make it known. With the Moon in Taurus it's a perfect time to make wishes involving money or anything you value in your life: relationship, work, family, a new behavior etc... You are allowed ten wishes maximum, and they must be hand written on paper. Wishing within the first 8 hours of the exact time of the New Moon is the most potent, but within the first 48 will be ok. And this month try to incorporate Mother Nature into your wishing ritual somehow, use your creativity with this one.
