Tuesday, May 15th, Taurus, 4:47 am PST
With New Moons we get a pause, a moment where there is an opening, a gift of reprieve. This is a time where what we have been avoiding is RIGHT in our face - unavoidable and inescapable. But with this New Moon we get an opening of energy that comes in to support us in all the big shifts and changes that are happening. Yes, it is a very hard time, but it is also a magical time.
I will share, that personally, I feel big shifts trying to happen. Emphasis on the word trying, or rather they are happening within me and I am becoming acutely aware of the ways I am trying to stay in the old. This could be part of my fixed Scorpio nature, always wanting something to overcome, some challenge to be up against, some energy to transform. In a way it's terrifying to not have something to overcome and transform, and yet that is the place I feel I am being pushed to be in. A place where there is ease, calm, support, confidence in my bodies ability to handle things, health, partnership, abundance... being. And oh boy! Do I feel myself fighting it, even though it's everything I have been fighting to have! This is the ironic and hard part about where I feel like we are right now. We are actually getting pushed into a place where we have worked so hard to be and we are resisting it and fighting it every step of the way.
With this New Moon in Taurus and Uranus moving to the sign of Taurus (for the next seven years) we are being pushed to realign ourselves into some more positive energy and positive values. But what I see happening is we are being faced with all of our issues and all the ways we hang on, stay comfortable in the known (even if those ways are more difficult). We have an attachment to them and right now we don't want to let go! So while we are facing some of our deepest issues and patterns, with this New Moon we are also being given messages and signs about the way through. It's like finding a secret doorway in a room where you have been keeping yourself trapped. This New Moon is guiding all of us to find that secret door that we didn't know was there. It's so important to keep your eyes, ears, hearts, bodies open right now. Pay attention to things you see in repetition, people you keep running into, dreams you keep having, animals that keep showing up... anything where you notice a sequence. I am a big believer in the message of threes. The first time you encounter something/one, the second time could be a coincidence, but the third is a message not to be ignored. Follow these things right now - they are here to guide you through your big lessons and allow you to settle into and be open to what is shifting inside you.
Try to think about the fact that you are the room, the secret door AND the key.
Taurus energy is all about value, beauty, pleasure. Be sure to partake in things that stimulate your senses, that feel sensual and nurturing. In fact, these kinds of things just might be the key to opening that secret door. Just make sure that this energy isn't indulgent or feeding the old patterns and issues, but instead is a way through, is full of healing, and is supporting the new place you are being pushed to step into. And be sure you aren't using the energy of Taurus to escape the difficulty. You will be able to feel it - is it keeping you in the old, are you using it to escape, OR is it leading you through something into something new?
What would it be like to not react to our issues from our ego, from the known, from our minds wanting to figure it out, from fear... but instead to face our issues from a place of openness, curiosity, trusting, surrendering to the universe to be guided through that energy?
Keep me posted.
