This is a fiery new moon on May 15, igniting our passion and leadership skills. In this meditation we will focus on gaining an objective perspective, as Taurus and other signs at this time are quite fixed. By being objective, we are better aligned with true purpose and needs of the whole, which becomes organically supported. During this time, it is important to lead for the greater good, with purity, and compassion. Let’s look at the signs at play:
- Taurus Decan 3 lives for the senses, but can be quite stubborn and temperamental when it doesn’t get its way
- Perseus is bright, forceful, bold and will do what it needs to get what it wants
- The stars Agol & Capulus in Perseus are known for misfortune, but this emphasizes the need to lead with higher, positive thoughts
- Venus focuses on love, fortune and healing
- Pluto brings our awareness to intense transformation, working harmoniously with Venus
- Uranus adds a little more adventure and risk to our already passionate and intense Taurus
- Neptune softens these aspects with it’s gentle, flowing and community-minded approach
This Newmoon, really pay attention to your thoughts. Your self talk. Your emotions. Your actions. What is is you wish to achieve. How does this better your community? How does this help you become more aligned with your higher consciousness?
New Moon Meditation
I like working with polarities to find the balance, particularly at the New Moon. Find a grounding stone – obsidian, hematite or smokey quartz, and a more ethereal stone like amethyst or sodalite. Find a grounding essential oil – cedarwood, spruce, patchouli, fir, black spruce, cypress, and an oil for the upper chakras – frankincense, sandalwood, lavender, Harmony, Inspiration, Transformation, or Release.* For music, I would suggest this frequency: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KCW1xbXPRDY&t=2251s. If you use sage or palo santo, you are welcome to cleanse the energy in your space and around you too.
Dab a grounding oil on your root chakra at the base of your spine, and the upper chakra oil on your forehead. Lay down, placing the grounding stone near your root chakra, and the ethereal stone near your forehead.
Begin by taking a deep inhale, hold, and exhale through the mouth. Repeat another nine times. Nine being the number of completion, letting go of what you have completed, what is no longer needed. Time to begin a fresh phase, connected even more deeply with your intuitive strength and gifts to share with the world. Ease into whatever form of breath is comfortable for you, perhaps a flowing Ocean or Ujjayi breath. Allow yourself to be here for 10-30 minutes.
