“The deep Feminine, the mystery of consciousness, She who is life, is longing for our transformation as much as we are. She holds back, allowing us free reign to choose, nudging us occasionally with synchronicities, illness, births and deaths… But when we make space for Her, she rushes into all the gaps, engulfing us with her desire for life and expression. This is what She longs for, this is what we are for: experiencing the Feminine through ourselves. We simply need to slow down, and find where to put our conscious attention. And it is this, this willingness to look again, this willingness to put consciousness onto our places of unconscious, to express what we have always avoided, which starts the process of unblocking, so that She may flow through.” ~
The Moon is New in Taurus at 10:26pm eastern AND synchronistically occurs on Earth Day. This Moon unites the most potent of feminine energies – this is the Moon in Her exaltation, this is the rulership of Venus, and this is the groundedness of Earth. Add our New Moon intentions, our magick, and we have a formula for empowerment, for transformation, and for manifestation at the highest levels.
This lunation (and really all of Taurus season) calls for our Embodiment. Our Presence. Our Attention. At a time when the world is chaotic and challenging, when our very embodiment is threatened, Goddess is calling us to MORE. More grounding, more rooting, more recognition of the incredible foundation that She and our bodies provide us with every single day. As planetary influences like Uranus push the call for Revolution we need to make sure our Temples are ready. While we do need to honor losses felt at this time, we also need to see what is revealed in the loss – kind of like the Tower card in the Tarot. And we have three of Goddess’ emanations ready to support us – Earth, Moon, Venus.
Uranus entered Taurus for the first time back in 2018, heralding a seven-year stretch that demands a restructuring of the ways we work with our resources. In this fixed earth sign, Uranus shakes up our notions of what we have come to know as normal. What we thought was firmly in place gets revealed as vulnerable. What we are urged to do is get wildly innovative with the material we have on hand – not the material we have been taught to steal from the future.
Conjunct Uranus and square Saturn in Aquarius, the New Moon (and then Mercury) picks up on a theme we’ll spend the better part of 2021 living out: the Saturn/Uranus square. Uranus brings in a fresh perspective, Saturn steadies traditional values. Uranus awakens; Saturn restrains. Uranus changes; Saturn conforms. The friction of old structures crumbling and new ones emerging is acutely felt right now and will be well into next year. ~ Chani Nicholas
Where is your foundation, your Earth? How does your intuition, your Moon, assist you in unearthing your Magick? And what is the deepest passion of your heart, your Venus? Bring them together. Embody them. Adorn your Temple with their powers, with your presence. Use the tools that Gaia has provided – crystals, plants, animals, all Her allies. Set your New Moon intentions accordingly and be ready to form the new normal through the eyes of Goddess and your radiant heart.
Candles are burning and I am chanting and praying every single day for all of us.
My heart to your hearts – Thank you for being part of our community!
BLESSINGS, LOVE, and BIG HUGS TO YOU ALL!

All New Moons signify renewal and new beginnings; new seeds are planted for the month. What would you like to create for yourself over the coming weeks? This month’s New Moon falls in the Earth sign Taurus, which rules the five perceptual senses; our groundedness in the physical world, and our connection to Mother Nature and our bodies. The ruler of the sign Taurus is the planet Venus, which represents what we love and value most in life. Venus expresses how we give and receive love. Taurus also rules the throat chakra and our “voice”. Our words are important. Mantras, music, singing and toning all help to channel positive energy through the throat chakra. In ancient Egypt, the Goddess Hathor ruled over the sign of Taurus and the constellation of the Pleiades. Her initiates were taught that “the Body is the Temple, and Sound is the Key”. Wise words to remember.

Are you feeling it? The whispers from Goddess, Ancestors, and Good Spirits inviting you to connect. The pull of the Beloved Dead, Ancestors, and Good Spirits is most palpable as we wind our way to Samhain (All Hallow’s Eve), but working with the Ancestors and Good Spirits is a journey of love that may be taken at anytime. Leading us through the innermost labyrinths are the the Dark Mothers whose liminal natures signify the mysteries of life, death and rebirth. We accept their guidance through the darkness that spirals into and connects with the wisdom of the Ancestors and Good Spirits.
Join me on a 30 day journey. Let’s shift between the worlds, sit in Hel’s hall, meet Hekate at the crossroads, walk the cemetery with Maman Brigitte, and witness the dead with Ma’at. ~ Kimberly Moore – The Beloved Dead
