Put simply, state of mind,
not material circumstances,
creates your states of harmony,
assurance and comfort.
Put simplest, with a few adjustments,
you can bloom spiritually
right where you're planted.
Taurus/Scorpio energy brings awareness of your deepest values, renewal of your priorities and access to the power to co-create your world. Taurus time (April/May) and the Taurus New Moon are the annual opportunities to seed the *Garden* of your life ... while Scorpio time (Oct/Nov) and the Scorpio Full Moon bring the annual gifts of power, magic and purification. Working consciously with these energies gives you a chance to truly ground your Highest intentions and bring them in to 'form' to serve the greater good, which will attract blessings beyond your wildest imagination ... *IF* you maintain integrity and DO THE WORK! Earth energy requires getting real ~ getting serious ~ and getting dirty! It is a chance to co-create, contribute and allow Great Spirit to breathe life in to the seeds you plant at this time.
This year, the Scorpio Full Moon (4/28) precedes the Taurus New Moon (5/13) indicating that a clearing and/or release is necessary before planting the seeds of the new. As we clear karmic debris, we create a space where it is clean and clear and ready for the fresh and new to be planted, built or brought in. Taurus/Scorpio energies teach us about the willing sacrifices we make for that which we truly value, as well as the lesson of hard work rewarded. This is the time when I remind people that seeds germinate in the darkness. The Taurus/Scorpio energy perfectly illustrates the relationship between the seeds developing below the Earth's surface, to produce a physical, tangible result (eventually) above the Earth's surface. So realigning your values and priorities within (Taurus) will help you create tangible results with power and magic (Scorpio). In that regard, it is also important to remain disciplined and focused. There is no time for petty distractions or silliness when you want concrete results. Time is of the essence for planting and nurturing what you want to grow in your life. This is time to do the work, get involved and create!
You have some additional assistance this year. Venus (values/priorities), Mercury Retrograde (review of ideas, thoughts, concepts) and the Sun (identity/Source) all make it in to Taurus prior to the Full Moon in Scorpio, which precedes the New Moon in Taurus, facilitating a clarification and clearing. This is an indication that you must do the internal/energetic work before you can produce the external/physical results. The Scorpio Full Moon will shine a light on the entanglements which are cutting off life-force energy, like a plant whose roots have outgrown the container and begin to choke the plant to death. The Scorpio Full Moon will help you do some pruning and release the aspects of your life which have grown toxic or are no longer "alive". These values (Venus), ideas (Mercury) and aspects of your identity (Sun) are no longer viable and need to be cleared away to make room for what *IS* healthy and taking root to expand, while also creating space for new seeds to be planted.
What are you growing? What is not thriving in your *Garden* and may need to be reconsidered? Can you create better conditions? What is or is not worth cultivating? Take this time to reflect as you move through Spring Cleaning and organize your *Garden* ~ planting the seeds, watering them and infusing the *Garden* with prayers for healthy growth and fruitfulness. Use this month to redefine what you value and what you are willing to invest your precious resources of time, energy and money in ~ to ensure a healthy, beautiful, self-sustaining, and comfortable world. You are probably working on many different things you would like to grow and blossom in your world at this time. And as in a garden, each requires certain care to grow and maintain. This is the time you ground your intent and commit to steady, consistent efforts that produce results over time.
One final thought ... anything you create, you are responsible for (also known as the 'ability to respond'), so check out the origination of the word RESPOND: Latin ~ From respondere: re- "back" + spondere "to pledge" / "respond, answer to, promise in return". You did the work, clearing karmic debris and creating a space for the garden (your new life); you planted the seeds you chose for your new garden; and with the Full Moon in Scorpio, you are entering a covenant with the Universe that if It breathes LIFE in to your dreams, you will be RESPONSIBLE for nurturing them throughout their lifespan. Which leads to the French ~ responsible: "answerable (to another, for something)" / Meaning "morally accountable for one's actions". You CHOSE to create this life, now you are responsible for it and all that comes with it ... the good, the bad and the ugly! (As well as the knowledge that ALL IS PERFECT in the eyes of Great Spirit!) So take advantage of all these delicious (and potent) Earth energies to get 'real' with your Self and your deepest desires and values and THAT will be the life you will be living. All experience prior to now, was preparation for THIS! You're more ready than you think and this is no time to chicken-out, you are standing in the doorway which leads to a whole new existence, but you still have free will and choice. However, remember, you also have the supreme strength of some very powerful planets behind you, beside you, beneath you, above you and WITHIN YOU! It is time.
