The power of the Blood Moon and the Grand Square continue this week. I have gotten reports of feeling spacey, minor but bed ridden illness (time for soul searching), sadness (but not sure why), crying out of the blue (ditto), restlessness, pets acting really wierd and differently, ups and downs and loss and gain. Yes that's about right.
Because of this "closeness" to the other side right now, it's not uncommon for us to feel "out of it" or overly tired. Sleep is not to be underestimated during these invisible energy hurricanes. Naps are encouraged. Slow down from your hectic pace. Eat Well. Meditate. Laugh. Practice Theta and ground yourself with the Earth Mother. She is calling in this purge too. It is the pain we have caused our hostess that is a major factor in this change. We cannot continue to abuse our resources, and we have to stop denying global weather changes. And everyday we must be thankful for our home, our food, our air, our very lives. It's time to stop being spoiled teenage brats and become responsible adults.
Tuesday the 29th, is a SOLAR ECLIPSE. On the heels of the lunar eclipse, this is the final portion of the omen about the blood moon followed by a black sun. The sun is now in Taurus the Bull, ruled by Venus. Taureans are generally loyal and faithful, like routines and a sense of security, love to eat and drink, love to love and love deeply. It takes them a long time to drop their defenses and fall in love, but once they do its nearly impossible for them to fall out of love, regardless of the pain they may endure until the day comes when they make the changes they've needed to make for a long time. It only looked from the outside like it was sudden. They are also quite stubborn and even in regards to change, they dig in before they go there. Sun AND the moon are in Taurus Tuesday, giving great strength to the above mentioned attributes. It's also a NEW moon, and all year long events have been happening or repeating around new moons. The theme of change is ever present, and the solar eclipse triggers tons of energy towards this, like there isn't enough already!
Venus moves from Pisces to Aries on Friday May 2nd until May 28th. Venus is aggressive about love now. Take a chance, make a pass, get out and meet people. Something could develop quickly. Have some fun!
Use the stability factor in Taurus (which represents seeds planted and starting to grow) to ground yourself. Taurus is the earth. Earth Day was chosen on a Taurus Sun day - planned or a coincidence? It's a grounding time yet a time of change, which means the Universe will stand by you as you change. Its not a leap of faith month so much as a step forward month. Make a plan, think it through, take the first step toward that goal and after May 19th, when Mars turns direct, we all have more energy and go forward at a swifter pace.
It's time to get real. Really real. We are having a spiritual/inner rebirth. And the Sun and Moon (and Mercury is still there too - our minds want stable and steady now too) in Taurus are great times to build sound foundations for something real and good. And as we connect more to our Higher Selves, we are participants in creating a new "vibe" for Planet Earth. We are "raising her vibrations" to a higher octave or energy level. We are stepping up into a new way of doing things, of feeling, of being. It is a New Age upon us (It is the dawning of the Age of Aquarius). The old must be released to allow the new to grow. Shed your snake skin with joy, in knowing you are re-birthing. Give thanks and fill the world with your thanks, it will heal us all.
