After two intense days with planetary challenges of high emotions purging us from hidden, unconscious patterns of behavior, we are now ready to step into a more relaxed time. Maybe we find peace in nature or enjoy life’s sensual delights. I just had a bath and signed up for a message today.
The unfolding growth in the zodiac is going through opposing motions challenging the status quo and then a period of integration and refinement, like with the transformation of Pluto followed by the expansion of Sagittarius; or the contraction and consolidation of Capricorn followed by changes and rebellion with Aquarius.
After the fiery, blazing emotions of the Moon in Aries we are now allowed to relax into the practical arms of Taurus, sit in the garden and smell the roses…
Taurus known as Planter and Beautifier of Life (April 21–May 20)
At this time of the year the Northern Hemisphere is free of its winter snows and it is time to attend to caring for the Earth and planting crops. The sign of Taurus is ruled by Venus and is considered a feminine earth sign.
Taurus people are very much in tune with the Earth. Due to the influence of Venus, they have a great love for beauty found in things such as art, jewelry, and the natural landscape. They are loyal, patient, and deliberate in working toward their goals, just as farmers must be in tending their crops from planting through harvest. When a Taurus person undertakes a project, it most likely will be completed! Grounded in reality and the physical world, they excel at professions such as artist, farmer, the financial sector, and politics.
The Moon: Our Mirror of Feelings
Approximately every 2 ½ days the Moon as our fastest planet in Astrology is moving into a new zodiac sign. When the Moon transitions into a new sign there is a different energetic emotional quality available. Moon signifies our way we feel and filter the events in our environments emotionally. The Moon describes our receptivity and helps us to understand our often impulsive reactions to those events in our life.
Following the Moon moving through the potential of possible reactivity will ease the surprise of it and gives us a choice to some degree.
Whenever the Moon stirs us up into fierce feelings there is something to gain even in hindsight!
The Last two Days of the Moon in Aries might have brought to light something dormant in us which is in need to be addressed! For me it played out as getting sick and having to realize the amount of overwork and stress I have been in lately.
What did you feel? What were you upset about the last two days? Any insight you can gain from that?
The Sun & Mercury are still in Cancer
And with that there will be a chance for some rest and insightful relaxation. A wonderful way besides taking a nice hot bath to relax and put things into perspective is a little meditation with a Moonstone. As the name says this gemstone connects with our inner world in a similar way as the Moon does. If you have a peace of jewelry you might want to wear it. If you have a loose stone you can lie down and place it on your third eye and just settle in, let your thought activities slow down and breathe deeply.
Moonstone will make you feel more balanced and safe internally and is a crucial stone to help with emotional upheavals of any kind. If you have a bigger piece you can put it under your pillow for a better nights sleep.
I hope you will enjoy the rest and nourishment Taurus is making available for us…
Aloha and many blessings, Shakti.
