New Moon in Aries~Taurus *sidereal* UPDATE on Lunar Eclipse energies of April 5, 2015
Welcome to a New Moon! This new moon is significantly important as it marks the 2 week mark since the Lunar Eclipse in Virgo!
How are you feeling? I know many of my clients and friends have been just drained, including myself. If you have any placements in Virgo you felt this one pretty strongly. That includes any houses with Mercury on the cusp or in the actually 6th house which both Mercury and Virgo rule.
I've noticed I've had to meditate in a more lucid state, provide myself with extra down time and relaxation and give myself permission to not fuss over things and resist the urge to be perfect! Not really "perfect" but almost perfect!
During this lunar eclipse I've seen shadow pieces rise up concerning all Virgo~Pisces related issues. Exercise, nutrition, and how I used to perceive myself on the job, all revamped on a personal and spiritual level. I've actually redefined personal goals, discovered a whole new house system in astrology that I'll be using as it seems to be the most accurate as well as ancient, what our ancestors used, realigned myself in my service to the Goddess teachings with practical application and daily devotion! Whew... yes that shadow is a tall order but one that can be mastered if we are only conscious when it arises.
From an astrological point of view......
New Moon in Aries/Taurus is about reclaiming our own inner power and strength after we've gone through whirl wind of dissecting a variety of needs that we've been ignoring. There is something that we need to focus on in the area of health, fitness, the work we do, the service we provide. As we flow into the energy of Taurus we're provided a sense of down time to reflect on the action we've planted! Its time to revel in all of those 5 sensory pursuits that allow us to feel good in our bodies afterall Taurus provides structure. But before we take that journey, let's not forget that Virgo is about daily tasks and how we go about getting things done in our everyday lives. Not only that but on a higher plane she's all about that sacred priestess energy that provides us with an inner "knowing" of who and what we give worship too. After all Pisces is the natural opposing sign of Virgo, with Pisces it's always about committed, compassionate devotion to some aspect of spirituality or higher consciousness.
Aries brings forth feminine power in the form of:
- Trail Blazer
- 5 sensory delights
- Focus on our finances
