Dark-New Moon & Eclipse28 Apr 2014, by moon&sky in
Welcome the Dark of the Moon in Taurus (exact at 2314pdt) and a Solar Eclipse tonight (2304pdt). Here in the Northern Hemisphere we won’t see the eclipse but the energy can be strongly felt.
So many I’ve spoken to of late have found the times of mid-April lunar eclipse and Cardinal Grand Cross to be a bit earth ‘quakey’ as can so often be the case when we revisit, examine, and are in midst of change. There have been breakdowns and breakthroughs; times that call for both letting go and for affirming/reaffirming heart-deep desires and intentions.
Now is the time to free space during the dark of the Moon. To rest, reflect and to plant new seeds in the soft earth of Taurus. Today is an Earth Snake Day and starts the lunar month of the Earth Snake. Snake delves deeply, especially during eclipse time. Time to ground wisdom and healing. Time to refuel our foundations.
Draw on the ongoing water trine (Chiron & Jupiter) for compassion and healing; and on Saturn and Venus to aid in deconstruction of old patterns.
Open to receive and let Spirit guide the passages. Move slowly. Reflect on all that you have sensed in this past cycle and all that has shaken loose during the Cardinal Cross this month. Choose what intention you wish to ‘plant’ for yourself this cycle.
Settle in with the Taurus new moon and ground the energies and gifts of the recent transformations. Reconnect with Earth. Deepen and reconnect with self love and self care. Nurture and nourish yourself self like a tree is nourished by water and sun. Grow this love and care like the sun’s brilliance grows from Spring to Summer.
In a couple of days it will be Beltane, the quarter between Spring Equinox and Summer Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere. Celebrate the fertile ground and the emerging new life in a multitude of forms. Appreciate the bounty, the beauty, the love, the abundance. Take account of both that which is within, and that is all around. Fill up with all the good that is present, emerging and growing.
And, as always, in all ways,
Nurture your Nature
with Love & Light
