Spring Foods: Liquid Gold

Copy of Fire Cleanse

Greetings beloveds,

While we are working with the energy of fire, we cannot forget the magic of the liquid gold known as honey. Honey is a healing food which can be used in many different types of remedies both intentional and unintentional.

As it is fire’s season, finding ways to add a bit of fire to our foods helps align us with this seasons energy. There are so many ways to utilize honey whether it’s adding some to your tea, dessert, biscuits, oatmeal, bread, and countless other dishes. As one of the most versatile ingredients the options are almost limitless.

When you find yourself feeling sluggish take your favorite tea, add some honey and a tap of chili powder. This will add that spark that you need back to your physical form and spirit.

It is vital that we feed our spirit. That we support our bodies, heart, mind, and soul. That we find ways that allow for us to even if for a moment let ourselves focus on our own growth. Spring starts with the fire sign of Aries grounds in Taurus and ends with the sign of connection through communication Gemini. Honey creates those binds between the animal world, the plants, and us.

If you are opposed to the use of honey, there are other forms of sweeteners such as dates or stevia that also can provide a connection to the world around us. These additions to your diet will sweeten your disposition and view of the world without the sharpness of processed sugars that tax our bodies.

How do you incorporate honey or other sweeteners into your lifestyle?

Yoga to Improve Blood Circulation

Greetings beloveds,

We have moved into Taurus Season and it’s time to slow down a bit. Taurus energy is a slow but steady flow which grounds the fire energy of Aries which woke us up from our winter’s rest. We are slowing not to stop but to be more intentional in what we do. To carve out our actions so that everything we do is with purpose.

The circulatory system is ruled by fire and the blood. To improve your blood circulation and assist your reasoning process here is a quick yoga  routine to promote blood circulation.

Enjoy!

There’s a New World Coming: New Moon and Uranus in Taurus

New Moon in Taurus

Today we have a new moon in the sign of Taurus. Taurus is our first Earth sign of the western astrological zodiac. It takes that go go go energy of fiery Aries and grounds it into practices to be implemented. The energy of the cardinal sign Aries is to get us started. It pushes us outside of our winter cocoons to bring us back to life. Taurus is a mutable sign which means that it stabilizes the energy of Aries. It grounds our sense of self into our bodies and world around us.

Taurus is traditionally associated with the planet Venus. They naturally find the beauty in others, themselves, and the world around them. Taurus is associated with the Bull as they can be stubborn, set in their ways, and determined. This allows for them to have tremendous willpower. They set their mind to achieving a goal and will do so without being deterred.

This new moon, there is an energetic shift taking place with Uranus with moving into Taurus. I’ll share more about that later. With that, not everything will be clear right now. Not everyone moves with integrity and truth. There may be people around you who are not working with your best interest at heart. Or you may be deceiving yourself. Regardless, there is deception occurring somewhere. Be mindful of your relationship to money, ancestral wealth, heritage, and CHANGE. If you are resistant to our economy or currency changing this is a really good time to examine why.

  • Are there ideals associated with money or wealth that you are attached to?
  • Does the idea of living in an economy not based on paper currency worry you?
  • Do you diversify your income/saving/investment options or do you save all your money in a mattress?
  •           Do you place the value of your life and resources over others?
  • Do you reject the material realm because it is the “root of all evil?”.

Change is coming to the way that we interact with money and resources. Things will look different and there may be sudden changes to our society especially in terms of electronic finances, technology, and our perception of resources. Things that you trusted are going to be revealed to be shadows of what we thought they were.

The new moon in Taurus wants you redefine what you value. It must be based on love. Cosmic, universal love. One where resources are available to all which aligns with the energetic truth that we are in a universe of ABUNDANCE. When we fear and act on the energy of lack, loss, not enough, and distrust we limit our ability to access all that is available to us. It’s time to release outdated paradigms which says we cannot give to others because then there won’t be enough left for me. Or the more insidious paradigm of “we only get what we earn”. Again, these are limiting thoughts because you deserve everything. It is promised to you that you will be cared for.

Move into abundance. You are limitless. You are abundant. You are wealthy. You are Divine! You are courageous! Ground yourself in compassion, empathy, love, nurturing, and self-care. This will be the new foundation of how and why we work. Karen Parker with Human Design for Everyone stated that, “Taurus is a sign of mutation. It is a strange sign that nurtures the seed of new beginnings”.

Taurus calls us to ground our beliefs and practices in what we CAN be. Do you know what you desire? What really makes you feel secure? What your soul purpose is? Take some time to sit down and write this out. If you have not already set SMART goals and objectives write them out. Create a loose plan and then like a Taurus stick to it. Things may be uncomfortable but as Anais Nin said, “the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful then the risk it took to blossom”. We are breaking out of a shell so be gentle with yourself and be gentle with each other.

Osiris

Greetings beloveds,

All things are in balance and with the feminine Gods of Life and Death, we have the masculine Gods of Life and Death. These Gods have been brought into our world to provide the masculine energetic journey from birth, life, and death to resurrection.

We start with Osiris, the brother and husband of Auset (Isis). He is the ruler of the underworld, death, and completion. From death comes life and the return of balance through their son Horus.

Here are links to learn more about this powerful masculine God of Life and Death.

May Planetary Placements: Cultivating Beautiful Sacred Space

May Astrology

Greetings beloveds,

May is a bit of a slow month astrologically but it’s needed with the work that we are doing. On May 13th Mercury enters Taurus joining the sun. This officially starts are astrological movement from fire to earth energy. Aries kicks off the astrological new year and spring calling us to be brave so we can begin again. Mercury in Taurus brings our awareness to calm, grounded forms of communication. We are settling into our homes, our bodies, ourselves. We speak with our feat firmly planted on the ground. A startling understanding of the beauty of taking our time.

Soon after this we experience the new moon in Taurus. During this time we have Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn and Jupiter in Scorpio in retrograde. The Sun, Mercury and Uranus are all in Taurus. Mars is in Capricorn, Venus in Gemini, and Neptune in Pisces. Seven of the ten Western astrological planets are in Earth signs, the majority in Taurus. We have taken the rose-colored glasses off to bring the beauty we have dreamed of into reality. You can read more about the new moon in Taurus here.

On May 16 Mars enters Aquarius moving our expression of passion and aggression from a grounded sacrificial energy to one of creativity and innovation. Venus enters Cancer and we take the deep dive into our emotional connections with our home and the divine feminine. Partner this with the Taurus energy and you may find yourself wanting to cleanse and redecorate your home, office, car, and physical form. Be mindful to not place too much importance on fulfilling your fantasies while ignoring reality. It may feel great to brighten your home up or purchase a new car but your finances might take the biggest hit.

May 20th the Sun enters Gemini and we officially enter Gemini season. It’s time to connect, talk, and bring our light/shadow out to play. You might find yourself wanting to get our and spend time with your people.

Check back in soon for the rest of the important astrological movements occurring right before the full moon in Sagittarius.

See you soon!
