Moon Half-lit in Taurus14 Aug 2017, by moon&sky in

If things have been feeling a bit (or more) ‘uncomfortable’ or in a bit of a funk of late, well, yeah, such are the times. Perhaps various old memories have arisen and you have found yourself reminiscing more frequently. Yup, so too are the times (many planets in retrograde – Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto, Chiron and now Mercury). And, given various Earth-Sky happenings recently and upcoming (eclipses last week and next, and Venus Opp Pluto and then square Jupiter this week) much of what is felt may be exaggerated and/or magnified — including doubts, fears, and insecurities. This is the time for an extra dose of self-love. Stay present, breathe in peace and ease, go slow, and let things pass within a natural ebb and flow.
Right now we are at waning Moon with light and dark in equal measure; and midway between eclipses. Both timings call us to pause. With Moon In Taurus, practical attention is on what feeds, nourishes, and gives the experience of comfort and pleasure. Together, both Leo-Sun and Taurus-Moon seek their strongest ideal: being snugly fixed (both are fixed signs) in a peaceful space, feeling securely grounded, joyfully living from the heart, and able to seek and savour all the finest things of life. Yes, breathe this in. Emulate this.
Bask in Sun’s golden light. Drink in Leo’s big heartedness and Taurus’ deep groundedness. Draw on Fire’s cleansing ability, and Earth’s nourishing abundance, for both personal and planetary healing. Release all that no longer serves. Focus on yin and yang harmoniously intertwined. Enter into the feminine deep of the darkening Moon and prepare for new potential and rebirth to come.
Release any and all emotional disruptions
clear away what does not serve without exception
Surround yourself with earthen green
Root deep in this rich time of between
Feel into ease, love, joy and peace
and all good things you would increase
Rest now within the feminine deep
renew you and all within your heart’s keep
Nurture your Nature
with Love and Light
May you embrace ease, savour peace, and
be deeply refreshed & renewed this Moon
