4/26/17 New Moon in Taurus
With the cycle beginning with the New Moon in Taurus, this is a time to embrace your sensual nature. Invoke all your senses, and find pleasure in each of them... Enjoy the breeze caressing your skin, listen to music that inspires you; indulge your taste buds with yummy foods; wear perfume oil that makes you feel sexy; look at art and images that uplift you. Enjoy the here and now and what it has to offer you.
The card pulled for the New Moon, is Focus. Where you put your energy will determine the course of the Flower Moon cycle. Focus is a powerful ally, especially when we are tending to our desires. Taurus is ruled by Venus, and the Goddess of love wants you to embody your desires and find pleasure in what you do and how you live. It is something to not feel guilty about or shame away from. Our society looks down on seeking pleasure... we usually resist and feel we do no deserve it.
Would you tell a friend she does not deserve to thrive? We didn't think so ;)
Set an intention to focus on pleasure, joy, and love.
5/3/2017 First Quarter Moon in Leo
Leo energy during the waxing moon is magnetic! This First quarter moon is an opportunity to truly shine in your magick and power. And the card pulled for this phase is the Lunar Eclipse card: Sovereignty. At this moment what would it feel like to embody your desires? The First quarter moon ignites desires and propels you to move forward with your intentions you set at the New Moon. Leo is also the King or Queen of the zodiac, so they lend you courage and remind you that you have the right to fully embody your desires, beauty, truth, and magick.
Give yourself permission to bloom
There is an opportunity here for you to be seen and heard and tests you to be the Queen of your realm. Ask Leo for courage and to not shy away because you may look back and regret it later.
5/10/2017 Full Moon in Scorpio
The Full Moon in Scorpio is Lunar Beltane! There is a deep energy of the Divine Masculine (Scorpio is co-ruled by Mars), and the energy of the Goddess Venus is potent in this moon cycle. What is merging in you right now? How can you fully surrender to this surge of love and create something from this merging?
We are not going to lie, sexual desires are at their peak during Lunar Beltane, so surrender to your erotic nature and make love! You can make love to your lover, partner, or to yourself! Be open to receiving pleasure. That is the theme of this moon cycle after all.
Are your boundaries supportive or restrictive?
The card pulled for the Full Moon is boundaries. So be aware of the boundaries that have been set in your life that restrict you and confine you. The Scorpio energy gives you the opportunity to look deeper into these boundaries and help dissolve them if they no longer serve you and your highest good, or fortify them if they are weak. Scorpio energy also helps you establish sexual boundaries if you need them.
5/18/2017 Last Quarter in Aquarius
The Last quarter moon is always an opportunity to look back and reflect on the cycle. Did you focus on pleasure and embodiment? Did you struggle with receiving love and pleasure? Are your boundaries healthy or restrictive? During this time do not judge yourself, but simply observe.
Depending on your time zone, the Last Quarter will fall on Aquarius or Pisces and the card chosen is Rejuvenate. It is time to relax. It is time to allow stillness to permeate and allow grace and ease into your life... another trait of Taurus. Find peace in simple pleasures, book a massage or facial and allow your mind to retreat. Aquarius energy can be sporadic especially during the waning phase of the moon, and make your mind race and you will want to skip ahead this part and just keep moving forward. It is so important to find stillness and set aside time to relax.
Let ease and rejuvenation into your life
We hope you enjoyed this reading and we hope you bloom and fluorish in this moon cycle ahead!
