May 6 marks the New Moon in Taurus, a powerful time to set intentions surrounding self-love and what we want to bring to the world. There is a lot of retrograde energy during this moon, which indicates that much of our energy will be directed inward toward what we can heal and bring to our consciousness. Whatever comes up for you is perfect, as you notice and allow your feelings to come forward.
Taurus is an earth sign ruled by Venus, the planet of love, beauty, and romance. It’s essential for us to get grounded and truly get back in touch with the basics of our self-love practice. Ask yourself, “what do I need in order to feel nourished?” Perhaps it’s time take yourself on a date and bring more romance into your life, whether or not you have a partner. Taurus also represents fertility, creativity, self-worth, and thriving in the world. How can you be more empowered and more self-sufficient?
Here are some ideas to develop more clarity and heighten the magnetism of your intentions:
+ Practice a grounding and clearing meditation.
+ Have a tea ceremony or cacao ritual, then write down your inspirations.
+ Go to a yoga class, get a massage, or see an acupuncturist to get the energy flowing freely in your body.
+ Get outside and lay in the grass or on the beach.
+ Stop and smell the flowers, and maybe even treat yourself to a bouquet of your favorite blooms, just because.
+ Incorporate your favorite essential oils into your meditation and also add them to coconut oil to moisturize your body.
As you discover your inner radiance, you allow it to emanate outward, blessing and delighting those around you. The mind of the divine perceives the world through love. Recognising beauty in another is noticing your own divinity. It’s a spark of brightness in the eyes, the dewy glow of the skin with the sunshine warming you and the breeze caressing your skin.
Activating your sacred femininity is related to embodying the joys of Venus: beauty, pleasure, romance, and affection. Beauty is a natural result of being in harmonious alignment with the heart and body. For me it is about getting back to basics: a solid night’s sleep, adequate hydration, and skincare. It’s just as essential to detox from unhealthy food, sugar, alcohol, and caffeine in order to calm the body and nervous system. This holistic detox also includes releasing fearful thoughts, negative belief systems, and low-vibrational emotions. This is all done intuitively, as your body and heart know how to find balance.
When do you feel and look your most radiant? Honor your intuitive messages and you will naturally discover more harmony in every area of your life.
When you are close to the ocean, her love washes over you, moving through your hair and caressing your skin. Her love is limitless, serene, and accepting. Her essence is unconditional love and innocence, ever changing in each moment. She beckons you to go deeper, to be in that space beyond words, beyond social convention. She loves you exactly as you are. She sees your inner perfection. She sees you healed and whole when you realise everything you are looking for is inside of you.
In other realms, time is not a tangible reality. The past and future melt seamlessly into the eternal now. It is the mind that constructs our understanding of linear time. When we take a moment to tune into nature, we notice that she is always moving in circles and endless cycles, unfolding to reveal new expressions of the divine.
Put on your favorite song and have a dance break.
Gently place your hand over your chest and take 3 cleansing breaths. Consciously elongate your breath for one minute.
Go to the park or beach and ground yourself on the earth.
Put on a candle and surround yourself with crystals.
Throw fragrant blossoms into a sea salt bath.
Imagine yourself surrounded by sparkly rainbow light, breathing into your entire body and aura.
Dwell in the space of gratitude for all the love in your life now.
Write down a positive mantra or affirmation.
Visualise your dream life as if it is already so.
Coming into your true power is the process of acknowledging your innate creativity and allowing Divinity to move through you. Each day is an opportunity to know yourself on a deeper level. Each breath is an opportunity to expand into your truth and let go of the rest. Every thought is a choice to lift yourself up or drag yourself down vibrationally.
This universe moves in cycles, so there will be times of expansion and contraction. You are here to merge with these cycles, recognising outer space as inner space.
Ask yourself, “How can I move in the world more peacefully? What is blocking me from feeling happy and peaceful now?” As you get more in touch with your intuition, the answers to these questions will naturally come forward. Honestly it may be difficult at times to see your inner blocks come to the surface. It means taking responsibility for the ways you use your energy and emotions, but it doesn’t mean you have to hold onto past trauma. As Gigi Young said, “When you push through a block, you shift timelines. It is that simple. If you want to get onto the best possible timeline follow your heart’s whispers into the unknown.”
The more you delve into your meditation and unique self-love practices, the easier it will be to notice your intuitive messages and the faster you can shift your energy whenever it gets off balance. Be honest and gentle with yourself in the cleansing and releasing process. And know the best is yet to come.
The goddess embodies universal mysteries in her very being, deep in her heart and in her womb. These points of creation allow new vibrations to arise and be birthed into the world. As conscious goddesses, it is our life’s work to fully embody and express the ocean of love that wishes to be moved through us. Each unfolding moment is an opportunity to tune into your heart and see how the Divine wants to be expressed.
As the most powerful being in your reality, your feelings will gently guide you to your highest excitement. There might be a gentle nudging to go somewhere in particular or check out an event where you will meet like-minded friends. Trust that feeling and move toward the unexpected. The Universe moves in mysterious ways. As you attune to your heart’s calling and let go of fear, you are effortlessly guided to experiences that fill you with joy and excitement, as well as opportunities to shed limiting thoughts of who you are and what you are capable of.
On February 22 we have a Full Moon in Virgo, the sign of the priestess. Virgo is an earthy, feminine, grounded energy that relates to our work, daily tasks, and health. This is the sign that governs the harvest. The focus during this moon cycle will be on streamlining our tasks, giving ourselves more healing energy, and becoming aware of the fruits of our actions. The keywords for Virgo are refinement and discernment. Think about auditing and editing your life from all angles to be more in line with who you are, and who you want to become.
Journaling and free-writing will be especially helpful at this time. You might make a to-do list or a visual map to organize your developing ideas. Tuning into the graceful energy of Virgo can assist us to see situations and potential outcomes with stunning clarity. Think about crafting the life you want and the tangible steps you can take to move closer toward your goal.
This is a lovely time to focus on the earth goddess and ponder how you can connect more deeply to nature. Perhaps you daydream under a tree, gaze at flowers and clouds, or send a wish to a star.
As you consciously upgrade your reality, you become more adept at navigating the world through intuition. You realize that this world is indeed a hologram, comprising much more depth and complexity than we are initially led to believe. This journey of awakening is about sustained growth and expansion. There is no singular point in which you reach nirvana or enlightenment. It’s way more complex than a concrete beginning, middle and end.
It is true that the heart’s magnetic resonance is stronger than the brain. The wisdom of the heart expands. Its predominant vibration is peace and love. When you move from the heart, things feel lighter, more graceful and imbued with peace. You notice the subtle language of the heart that whispers gently while the mind shouts.
You are better able to notice when you coming from a peaceful, heart-centered place, and when you are coming from the calculating mind. The mind is a tool. Notice the pathways the mind is inclined to take. What do you fear? Is it real, or merely a thought conjured up in order to protect you?
To be surrounded by a sea of love is to feel what another is feeling in any moment. The grace and mystery of a water nymph is that she communicates foremost through her heart. She permeates your mind, heart and aura. She is a part of you and feels how you feel. She senses the potential of who are yet to be. She sees your life through your own eyes and feels your pain as deeply with complete acceptance.
The mysteries of the sea have been kept hidden for thousands of years because its wisdom was simply too dangerous for humans to grasp. What I mean is that humans have not encountered a love as pure and innocent as this, ever-changing and completely giving of itself in each moment. In the realm of the mermaids, there is no language other than love.
The new moon in Aquarius on February 8th encourages us to align with a fresh era based on what we want to create. As a powerful co-creator, this is a potent time to set intentions in all areas of your life. Aquarius is a visionary, forward-thinking energy, and this particular moon is charged up with a connection to its ruler, Uranus. There’s an electric energy surrounding this moon, so use it to spark your intentions into fruition.
Aquarius desires innovation and space to create. Give yourself time to contemplate and connect with this new moon as it will be setting the seeds for the months to come. Aquarius is the humanitarian, truth seeker, and inventor. You may have flashes of intuitive wisdom that will give you ideas on your next steps. Go with the flow and be open to non-linear or unconventional ways of thinking.
