The last Lunar Cycle kicked off the new Solar Year at the Aries New Moon and was by far one of the most bizarre months of my / our lives so far! This current cycle is initiated at the New Moon in Taurus and the energy shifts entirely as the moon moves into the Earthy, desire focused, embodied Taurean energy.
This is a month to check in with our strongest material and spiritual goals. We take the seeds planted during the Taurus phase and transmute them into their full manifestation at the alchemical Full Moon in Scorpio.
We have some strong Gemini overtones coming in once the Lunar Nodes shift into the Gemini/Sagittarius axis. The North Node is the head of the Dragon and is focused on the future. With the North Node moving into Gemini we are going to notice a shift of focus towards communications, online business, networking, connections, messages and lots of information flying through the air.
With Venus starting her retrograde through Gemini on May 12th, this is putting even greater emphasis on this energy and we will be going through a review of all things to do with our values within the realms of Gemini.
These are days where connecting with truth is required. The more you focus on the information, the more you will spin. These are times to truly practice listening to your intuition... the place within where you don't know how you know, you just know!
There are many potentially destabilising dynamics at play throughout this Lunar Month, but if you come back to your truth, back to your own wisdom, you will find that you can handle whatever is playing out.
There is so much more to this month some of which I cover in the video above. Plus if you join The Lunar Project I include all of what I see in the Astrological cycles into Rituals and practices to support us through these cycles.
KEY DATES & THEMES
(i) NEW MOON IN TAURUS- APRIL 22nd/23rd
> Conjunct Uranus » Dropping into our soul wisdom
This New Moon in Taurus embraces us in a grounding and nourishing energy. Taurus can be a very material and physical energy. Everything can feel as though it is slowing down or becoming more dense and more tangible which is helpful for us at the moment in these days of the continual information shape shifting themes!
With Uranus conjunct this New Moon there is the potential for some very significant shifts and break throughs this cycle! Uranus is only interested one thing... shifting paradigms for greater awakening!
(ii) KARMIC NODES MOVE INTO THE GEMINI/SAGITTARIUS AXIS!!! - MAY 5th - JANUARY 19th 2022
> Collective karmic focus shift » focus on communications
This is a collective cycle that will add a flavour to all of our experiences for the next year and a half. The nodes moving through this axis will activate heightened communications and greater movement of information. If we have all felt as though we have been dealing with too much information recently, get ready, as this trend is not likely to slow down any time soon!
It is so important to get into our bodies and nature as much as possible these days as we navigate the constant mental stimulation. This cycles New Moon in Taurus is powerfully supportive for us to go into the body and then we transmute at the Full Moon in Scorpio.
(iii) FULL MOON IN SCORPIO - MAY 7th everywhere
> Alchemical Full Moon » aligning with beautiful karma
Scorpio Full Moons are intense and times for us to go deep into the alchemical waters of Scorpio. We are working with Phoenix energy with Scorpio... rising from the ashes, the Phoenix flies high and becomes the bird symbol of Scorpio - the Eagle - soaring high up towards the Sun seeing everything from the highest perspective!
(iv) VENUS BEGINS HER RETROGRADE - MAY 12th - JUNE 24th
> In Gemini » activating new values
Venus is beginning her descent into the underworld where she will disappear and reappear again as the morning star. This is significant at this time as Venus represents our values, wealth, love and abundance. We are going to do a collective review on how we value what we say, how we communicate and how we distribute wealth.
:: There is of course so much more going on this lunar month which I am weaving into Rituals for people participating in <<<The Lunar Project >>>
Let's take a moment to go in this Lunar Month. Most countries are still in lock down for this cycle so this is a strong time to drop in deep into spiritual practices.
Taurus symbolises the moment where the formless comes into form. There is a deep spirituality within Taurus where - if you listen to your soul - you can connect with desires that are leading you towards greater material abundance and stability so as to empower and make possible your greatest spiritual aspirations.
If you are experiencing difficulties at this time, work with the Scorpio Full Moon to release your fears and worries. If you are starting to get cabin fever, work with a spiritual practice that helps you to transmute the energy. Yoga, walking, pilates, dancing... all forms of body work is great at this time to move the energy.
My sense is that by mid May, things are going to start moving as we move into a strong Gemini energy so more shapeshifting communication dynamics to come but at least the cycles will start moving with more air coming in.
Remember, this is a massive year with continual transformation and restructuring of power dynamics. It is a monumental metamorphosis for all of humanity so it was always going to take time for this process to play out.
This Lunar Month still has the sense of us not being the past but we are still not really moving forwards yet and this can be hard so please be gentle with yourself and with each other.
Hang in there everyone. Come back to your body. Go into nature. Stay with your breath and remember that the truth is within you.
With love always,
