New Moon in Taurus
New Moon in Taurus, May 15th, 2018 (10:48 AM, PST)
With this new moon in Taurus, we are entering the time of year when the bees are becoming aroused as flowers blossom and pollen sacs fill. As such, May is the beginning of swarm season; it is a fertile awakening in which we may witness the murmuring flight of the bees, dancing in effortless union between the Earth and Ethers.
In a similar sense, we are being asked to follow the erotic pull
towards enlivening, enriching, and expansive ways of being.
And move we must in order to expand! But first, it is essential to harvest from our inner realms and drink of the capped honey we've curated since the last full moon in Scorpio. How have you been nourished from Scorpio's revealing nature? It is with the wisdom of this potent medicine that we become energized and allow our actions to sculpt us into our fullest radiance.
The moon in Taurus during swarm season is a time of the beautiful unknown. Although scouter bees communicate enticing landing spaces to the Queen, she is essentially blindly guided by the seeds she's birthed as they lead her into a new existence.
It is this sort of erotic, fertile intelligence that is giving us Her pure LOVE to
inform our decisions -- regardless of our capacity to know the terrain.
This silent pull may seem scary, but just as the hive box has outgrown its purpose for the bees, we are being asked to create the blueprints to house our future offerings. Begin molding the expression that wishes to birth through you and disregard the old floor plans. Plan the architectural structure that will be the foundation for your honeyed wisdom.
In the case of a bee's nest, this architecture is hexagonal, solid, and efficient. Get rid of the fallen beams. Make the space to plant seeds of resiliency, durability, and longevity.
Dance your dreams into the earth and sing your service in prayer to the unknown.
In this potently fertile and dark moon, devote yourself to creating the space for abundance to culture. It is in this space that our offerings build authentic diversity in service to the collective.
For those of you literally being kept by the bees: Ask yourself how you can further support their growing vessel in a way that feels expansive and adaptable. What structures feel most authentic to the bees morphing and dynamic evolution? What didn't work last year that can be recycled and reused in new ways, physically, ethically, and symbolically?
