Waning Moon Half-lit in Taurus10 Aug 2020, by moon&sky in
… ground, sense, balance, nourish …
At waning Moon it is time to sift, sort, put aside or clear away whatever has occupied our efforts this cycle. Now at Moon half-lit it’s time to review, release, realign, reintegrate and re-balance. Time to slow and make space for self-nourishing and rejuvenation. Time to turn inward (waning Moon + 5 planets retrograde, 6 with Uranus-Rx Saturday) and prepare to enter the feminine deepening.
Moon in Taurus provides us with a calming, stabilizing influence and helps keep us grounded (along with 4 more planets in Earth signs). She reminds us to draw on the wisdom of the body and of the senses; and to find joy in simple things. Along with Leo Sun she turns our practical attention to what nourishes and what gives us comfort, pleasure and leisure (further supported by Venus now in Cancer). Together Leo and Taurus bring the cleansing ability of Fire and the nourishing abundance of Earth; and encourage us to appreciate our foundations (Taurus), and to let go and enjoy fine times (Leo).
We continue to negotiate challenging times (ongoing Saturn-Pluto influence will be activated again by Mars this week) and we will need to be proactive in our nesting, relaxing, comfort-finding/making. Currently supportive energies help us to more deeply release the old (retrograde planets); attain a bigger-picture, more spiritual perspective (Jup-Nep); elevate our mood; build confidence; and move meaningfully and helpfully forward (Jup-Moon). All things that contribute to our sense of well-being.
Time for nourishing self-care and rejuvenation. Time to ground deeply in Earth and be warmed by Sun. Time to be immersed in Leo’s big-heartedness and Taurus’ deep root ground. Time to tune to heart wisdom, tend our inner Fire, and purr into the feminine deep.
In this moment of light-dark between
reflect on all you have done and seen
Time to sift, sort and clear away
Time to make space for ease and play
Nourish the wisdom in your hands
Let Spirit rise and Joy expand
Rest now into the feminine deep
Renew you and all within your keep
Nurture your Nature
with Love and Light
Wishing you the blessings of firm ground,
warm heartedness, joyful play, & deep rejuvenation this Moon
