Happy Taurus season!
Tonight, we will have a new moon in the sign of Taurus. The sun moved into Taurus on Monday, and Uranus has been hanging out in Taurus since the Spring of 2019. Mercury enters Taurus next week.
Normally, we think of growth during Taurus season. We take time to plant the new ideas we came upon in the prior month while the Sun was in Aries, the initiator and pioneer.
That notion sounds a bit optimistic during these times of pandemic, however.
Yet, I would be remiss if I did not let you know that new moons are the best time to plant and that Taurus energy makes that doubly so. So consider yourself informed! :-)
I will be using the inspiration of Taurus season to invest in a share of a CSA (community-supported agriculture).
We'd love to grow our own garden on our property, but this isn't the right year for our family to begin that venture, so we plan to connect to one of the local farms we are blessed with here in the Western Berkshires of Massachusetts.
It seems like a smart thing to do at a time when our food supply chain is fragile, and I love that it will get us buying local from here on into the future.
I think this is just one of the many positive benefits that will eventually come from this virus outbreak. More of us growing our own food and working with local farmers will create a lighter human footprint on the planet.
What would you like to start growing this month?
What idea/s did you come up with last month to help you navigate this time of crisis that you are ready to plant and water?
What weeds do you need to pull out of your life to prepare the soil for growth and abundance ?
Where do you need to put up boundaries and fencing so predators don't munch on your crops?
More than a month into the coronavirus pandemic and the intense magnification of issues that comes with life in quarantine, I am sure you are starting to see what needs to go in your life and what can stay.
Get rid of the weeds, put up the right fencing, and have some fun deciding which seeds you are going to plant.
It's not easy to be positive right now.
The hardship from the virus is starting to sink in.
Some have been laid off.
Others have lost loved ones.
Others are worn down to a nub from working at home versus the office or managing kids who are away from school and childcare.
Keep the faith, cherished ones.
One of Taurus's best gifts is being creative in a practical way. Isn't that what we all need right now?
It's time to put our thinking caps on and come up with creative solutions that will help us deal with the problems before us.
What do you want to create?
On this most important new moon in Taurus 2020, which occurs tonight at 10:26PM EDT / 7:26PM PDT, take ten minutes to lay on the couch with your eyes closed or on your yoga mat in child's pose or while you are outside taking a walk beneath the dark moon and say a prayer of intention to plant something new in your life that will help you move forward through this pandemic.
It is going to be a bumpy ride for the rest of 2020, but we will get through it.
What do you want to be different when we have tamed the virus and returned to our new normal?
It's time to get planting.
