Balsamic Moon Phase:

Moon in Aries

Ruling Mahavidya: Bhunvaneshvari (The World Nurse) and Tara (The Rescuer)

Skill: embrace change

Negative Imprint: resistance

Positive Imprint: reconnection

Today's energy brings strong shifts.  Shifts in perspectives, directions, and feelings occur.  "Shift" is a gentler way to say "change."  Term it shift or change today, but the end result is the same. 

These shifts bring things together more than they take things apart.  Reconnection and rediscovery underpin the energy.  More specifically, the energy leans toward reconnecting us with our greater human family and our greater spiritual family.  If you are feeling a lack of connection with others, this energy will push hard on you to go beyond how you are viewing things in your life.  It will show any places where we are keeping up barriers.  Ultimately, bonds are forged or strengthened by the process.  This includes our bond with ourselves.

As the Moon phase shifts to Balsamic today, we also move into a new phase of learning.  We find ourselves in new territory, following the course of the energy that was in place for the month back at the New Moon on April 29.  I've repeatedly reposted the summary because it is important to integrate the journey we've been on this month.  We understand it more fully each day as we approach the New Moon in Gemini on May 28.  Here again is the energetic overview of what the past month had in store for us:

This month we are crossing new boundaries with a heavy load, using different lenses of perception.  After we hear a wake-up call, a call to action, or a call to devotion, we observe the patterns and themes of the energy and ultimately unite with our spiritual comrades.  The entire month's energy intends a "nexusing" of people - putting people together, putting people in the places they need to be, and connecting/reconnecting people who have work to do together (including work at the level of the soul).

Think back to the state of your life and your emotions at the New Moon on April 29.  Recall  the Sabian symbol for the month: a red cross nurse.  How were you in need of a red cross nurse then?  How are you now?  What mind space are you in now?  What perspective?  What was your call to action, your wake up call?  What burden or load were you carrying?  Is it time to release something? How has the universe responded for you?  Have have you been healed of something?  Was compassion delivered?

It's important to mentally integrate all that has changed for us this month as the changes continue today.  Change is the nature of the Universe!  Let's strive to be fluid and dance along with the shifts that are underway in our lives.  Let's see what comes together.
