Full Moon in Taurus
La Luna loves the stable and sensuous bull
Exalted she is in this sign
and exalted I feel with the moon in her fullness
High Priestess of the Night
You reflect the light of the sun
Deep into the center of my being
Beyond words and rationality
Guide me to the place
Where images and feelings reign
Where mind and thoughts are laid to rest
Where my soul is fed
Where my heart is full
Where the oceans and my emotions feel your gentle pull
I'll swim in your waters,
I'll bask in your light
I thank you kindly,
High Priestess of the Night
The depth unseen
Show us our darkness
so we can become clean. . .
Clean of our repressions, additions, and blindness
Clean of the unseen forces that guide us
We are here to transform,
To turn darkness to light,
Use our weaknesses to strengthen,
Our gentleness to fight
Making peace with our shadows,
Dropping judgement and blame,
Using kindness and healing,
Realizing we are one and the same.
Queen of Letting Go
Break open my heart,
so my love can flow. . .
Flow from the places where I've shut down,
from the dark murky waters, where shadow is found.
For that's where my gems are, there's the real gold,
the love and acceptance that comes once I know. . .
that life and death, shadow and light, yin and yang, wrong and right,
Blend all together in one glorious whole,
reminding me once again, so that I may know
TO LIVE IN THE MOMENT
TO LOVE LIKE I BREATHE
EACH MOMENT, EACH DAY
BE THANKFUL TO LIVE
The River cleanses me,
washes it all away.
Once again, I'm an innocent child at play.
The cold water awakens me,
to this gift that is life,
As I glide through her,
I forget my struggle and my strife.
So I pray to the waters,
I bow down in deep awe,
I thank you for your gifts,
You bring life to one and all,
May we respect and adore you,
May we be mindful of what we do,
So that our children's children can enjoy the waters too!
Tapping into the ancient wisdom of aligning with the stars and moon
New Moon in Taurus gives us the opportunity to look at what we have built in our lives, and what new foundations we can create to reflect our true values
Taurus; earthy, practical wisdom
Guide us to build our dreams through following what we love
Here, we realize how realizing our true purpose can be quite simple!
Patiently cultivate what you have been given instead of wanting things you don't have
What feels good now?
Follow your bliss!
Feed your joy!
She who embodies all that is beneath, hidden, repressed
Teach me to accept and surrender to the darkness
Show me how to not cling to passing emotions, feelings, fears, and the changeability of the mind
Teach me how to find the light
Even in the darkest of nights
How to hold on to hope when all seems lost, and I'm afraid, confused, and helpless
Please, caress my soul with your deep wisdom
I pray to you Dark mother
Help me discern that which needs the sword and that which needs patience and love
Teach me to turn within for answers, instead of seeking the opinions of others
I pray to you
I pray for my family, now and for generations to come
May we heal our karmic wounds
May we evolve and live in peace, love, joy, and acceptance
and as we heal our wounds, may we inspire others to do the same,
and in doing so, Heal the Earth
I am but a child in my heart
Wanting to love, and be loved
Shying away from hurt and pain
longing for comfort in my mother's arms
Expressing myself freely
Naturally moving towards what brings me joy
Accepting others differences, without even thinking twice
For aren't we all humans, together here on earth?
Let us be childlike again
Innocent and trusting
Joyful and ever present to moments as they arise
My Dreams are real
I can feel them, touch them
The doubts creep in, but I'm learning to mistrust them
Having a vision, following through
the most challenging and rewarding thing to do
So I take baby steps, one by one
I walk towards my future
Past and future are one
For time is a spiral
and its all-ready real
Choosing my thoughts wisely,
I go by feel
I do what feels good!
I do what feels right!
Following my quiet yearnings,
Dreaming not only in the night!
I seek your council
Teach me in the ways of stillness
Retreat Quiet Non-doing
Stillness comes naturally now
To do lists lose their usual appeal
I meet resistance if my mind tries to plot, plan, and strive
Dark Moon, you teach me
That I am already there
I am HERE
in my heart, in my spirit
Beauty and harmony and perfection already exist
My dreams have already come true- In the spiral of time I meet them now,
and I am content
Step into your power
But also be weak
Shine your beautiful light,
But first in the darkness you must seek,
Follow your heart
By quieting your mind,
Be utterly confused,
Then walk a straight line.
Life is a paradox,
There is dark, there is light.
Be with what is,
to expand with what might. . . .
