Divination Toolkit: Astrology – Modes of Energy

Hello lovies,

Here’s a quick review of the modes of energy in astrology.

Cardinal signs carry the energy of beginnings with Aries carrying the spark of life which gets the Western zodiac wheel turning. Signs in this area are great at starting projects, being leaders, discerning issues and creating ways to address them. They are not the signs to go to for completing a project whether that’s in the middle or end of the process. They need the assistance of other signs in the charts to help them see things through. These signs start the seasons and drive the spirit of birth, life, death, and renewal. 

Stabilizing, enduring, and innovative are just some of the words to describe fixed energy in astrology. Where as Aries starts us off, Taurus provides that nurturing space to plant the seeds of  creation so they can develop into full fledged goals and projects. Without the perseverance of the fixed signs, there would be so many unfinished manuscripts, ideas, inventions, and relationships. The downside of fixed energy would be stubbornness, not being open to change, and becoming so invested in completing a project or goal that they neglect the world around them creating isolating circumstances and discord. 

Finally we have our mutable signs. This is the energy of change that comes from nearing the end of any endeavor. Mutable signs give us flexibility, creativity, and an ability to see the forest not just the trees. These characteristics allow for us to take all of the energy of the cardinal and fixed signs to completion. To investigate, weigh, learn, and share with the collective the journey from start to finish and back again.

Rest: New Moon in Taurus

Hello lovies!

I’ve fallen fully into the energy of the New Moon in Taurus by answering the call to rest and appreciate the world around me. This might have felt like a call to spend time with friends, family, and loved ones including some “me” time. Here’s a quick breakdown of where the planets are for the new moon. I found as I tried to sit down and write out all the elements of this phase, that I just wanted to rest. To read, have a warm drink, eat comfort food, be outside and sleep. All in all this seemed to sum up Taurus energy in a healthy space taking into account my own energetic needs and cycles. To take ownership of who I am and what I have been blessed with.

What a delightful message from Taurus, that beauty is not all about the physical but holistic in nature. We are beautiful when we let our true selves shine.

I’ve been reading up on all of the astrology things. I love to explore my own chart but I realized I was avoiding signs that were not prominent in my chart, such as all of the Earth signs. Reading up on their magic and what they bring to the zodiac has been so refreshing. Another element of this new moon is to explore areas of interest that you may have avoided. You might find that embracing a slower pace of appreciation allows you to dig deeper into your talents and interests. Tackle some of the mysteries and fears from this brave space of Taurean peace and security.
