Waxing Moon Half-lit in Leo

Greeting Waxing Moon Half-lit (exact 210419 @2359 PDT) in Leo


… love, courage, stability, abundance …


Energy rises and momentum builds with the waxing Moon. Now half-lit it’s time to pause and reflect. Earthy Taurus wants us to ensure we attend to our foundation, build slowly and sense in to home. Fiery Leo is ready to play, create and delight in new adventures. There is a natural tension between the feminine and the masculine. Time to review and clarify plans, and move into action (^ planning/progress support from Merc now in Taurus).


A prominence of Earthy Taurus energy (5 planets in Earth signs, 4 of them in Taurus including Sun & Merc today) provides stability, stamina, strength, patience and firm ground. We are called to take our time; consolidate and make things simple; immerse in the senses/sensual and savour every moment; and nourish all that makes us feel ‘at home.’ Leo Moon brings inspiration, big-heartedness, creativity, childlike playfulness and the courage to open to new shifts and changes. She calls us to connect to our heart Fire; express our unique Spirit with big-hearted love; and Be all we can be.


Both Taurus and Leo want comfort, leisure, pleasure and rich sustenance. Together they invite us to dive deep, ignite our passions, and strengthen our convictions (both fixed signs). Balancing work and play, and rest and action, they encourage us to seek new systems of self-reliance (Leo) and stability (Taurus). Together, calm, practical Taurus and courageous Leo help us find pathways to new forms, sources and feelings of abundance.


Time to ground and take a new look at Life’s possibilities. Time to tune to our senses and open to serenity and beauty. Time also to fuel our inner Fire. Time to feel into courage and warm heartedness. Time to step into greater self-love and creative self-expression. Time to welcome a bounty of blessings. Time to purr and time to roar. Time to shine Love and Light and express all our gifts.


Time to ground your truth and free your wild
Tap the wisdom of your inner child


Breathe into the Earth and to the sky send your roar
It’s time, Spirit Warrior, to open new doors


Play, love, joy and courage sing
Express your radiant everything


Nurture your Nature
with Love and Light


May there be Fire in your heart & rich Earth beneath your feet,
& may you enjoy both creative action
& the simple sense-u-all comforts of home this Moon



And Happy Earth Day April 22!
