I wanted to add that this wonderful grounding Taurus New Moon is back-lit by some very dynamic and somewhat unsettling energies that are part of the ongoing restructuring and shaking down of the world as we know it (Pluto,Uranus/Saturn Neptune etc). On Sunday the Moon moves into Aries and activates some of the more unsettled aspects, so enjoy your weekend but don't forget to batten down the hatches.
A tree with strong roots is not so easily blown over.
It's truly is time for something completely different.
So much push-pull, go fast, slow down, turn left, turn right kind of thing (ahhhh), and when we are feeling stressed and confused survival fears can take over.
North of where I live in Western Canada, a dramatic forest fire is destroying a small city as it levels thousands of homes and livelihoods. Many have lost everything and are now homeless and on the road seeking shelter. There are many such challenging situations going on, from Syria to Ecuador, to nuclear meltdowns to food shortages etc. Easy to dismiss when it is far away, but when it lands on your doorstep it gets a bit REAL!
What has been deeply touching is the support and generousity that tragedy brings out of people. Human kindness (Sun Venus in Taurus) goes a long way toward surviving difficult times. I am inspired by the generousity, as I see people being in service in a practical way (Saturn). Neptune (compassion) in Pisces (higher self) magnified by Jupiter (generousity) in Virgo (service).
And when those high winds and lightning flashes shake your foundations, find the true sense of security that comes from a deep connection to the core of your being. Then, find your tribe, reach out to your community. Home is where the heart is.
One more thing: There is always creativity within the chaos; those lightning flashes can light up a way not seen before, so keep alert and watch for signs.
You know you want to !
