Here we are on the day of the new moon in Taurus as the planet Uranus shifts from Aries into Taurus.
This new moon is being heralded as THE moon of new beginnings. The seedlings that are planted will be gestated, nourished, and tended to until 2026.
Uranus, the planet of upheaval and rebellion, is already stirring up the seismic plates and foundations of mother earth. I can't help but wonder, is this Gaia's way of shaking us awake?
Over the next 8 or so years we will encounter massive shifts on the material plane. Throughout it all, I think we will be pushed to discern what and where our values lie. Taurus is an earth sign, one that values quality, luxury, the tactile and the sensual, the land, the soil, and growth. It is a master at manifestation.
Over the coming days, months, and years we will be pushed towards committing to that which aligns with our inner most desires, beliefs, and values.
What is it that you are desperately longing to see created? What are some of the ways we can work with mother earth to cultivate a reality that sustains and nourishes everyone?
We could see the collapse of structures and businesses that have been built upon the backs of those that aren't being properly compensated. My hope is that manipulation tactics will no longer be tolerated. That women will awaken to their beauty, power and sensuality exactly as they are; no longer buying into sleazy marketing tactics that profit off of insecurities, belittling, and pain points.
I dream of beauty and diversity at any size, shape, and color. One where uniqueness is celebrated, encouraged, and embraced. Natural beauty products and rituals elevated by harnessing mother earth's botanical offerings in sustainable ways.
I strongly belief that Gaia is the macro and that women are the micro, the way she has been over-harvested, mistreated, oppressed, and stolen from is reflected in the way we have been stolen from, burdened with responsibilities, and continue to perform so.much. unpaid labour.
This is the time to reclaim solidarity through sovereignty, sustainability through honoring the seasons and cycles of life, and move towards our true liberation....one where we recognize our divinity through our humanness and our willingness to demand better.
Let's weave webs of inclusion, firm boundaries, saying no, opting out. Let's build a solid foundation, one that will hold our precious hearts firmly centered in our bodies untouched by the chaos swirling around us.
Prepare to lock arms and stand up for what you truly hold sacred.
Here's the mantra for this new moon:
I grasp my hearts inner fire and take it deep,
Deep within, deep down through the soles of my feet
Through the roots of the trees, the soil,
Deeper until it connects with the heart of Gaia
Where it melds, our rhythmic hearts beating together
With the ancestral knowing that it is time
To rise together as one.
