New Moon at 21° Taurus. This is the beginning of Eclipse Season. The first Eclipse of 2021 is a mere two weeks away now and will be a Full Moon at 4° Sagittarius, where the South Node is currently transiting. That is why we are letting go of old beliefs and stories that are holding us back from our fullest expression. This New Moon features the Sun and Moon conjunct Black Moon Lillith in Taurus. How can you embrace the shadow (Black Moon Lillith) so that you can have a more embodied experience (Taurus)? The Sun and Moon together will plant the seed for that to manifest. Uranus is also in Taurus, bringing us the awakening energy to do what must be done for full authentic expression. Chiron in Aries is trine the South Node in Sagittarius, bringing more healing energy into this New Moon. How can you bring healing medicine into the areas of your life where you have allowed beliefs to become dogmas that have closed you off to a full experience of life and true connection? Mars in Cancer is also approaching a square to Chiron in Aries, further emphasizing the imperative to bring medicine to those parts of ourselves that are crying out for our attention. It is only when we give attention to all of ourselves, shadow and light, and embrace all of it, that true healing can happen and your authentic Self can emerge and be fully expressed in form. Neptune in Pisces is sextile the Sun and Moon in Taurus, giving us a boost of spiritual clarity and insight or disillusionment and confusion, depending on whether we work with our highest vibrational selves or fight the tide of high vibration energies flooding the planet, allowing us to massively upgrade if we choose to do the work necessary to make the leap into a higher experience.
The New Moon is exact at 2pm CST. Since it is darkest at the time of the New Moon, this is a great time for planting seeds of intention for what you want to grow and bloom in time. Taurus is earthy, grounded, embodied awareness, practical, hands on, and enjoys the physical, sensual delights of life. Ideally, ask your heart what it wants, and then phrase your intentions in the present tense as if they are already manifest and you are experiencing them and really feel how you want to feel. Then let them go and let them grow, nurturing those feelings you want to feel now. And trust that Life will bring you what you asked for, being open to how it unfolds. Life often surprises us, and if we stay open to our experiences, we won’t miss the gifts we are given and the beauty of the journey.
