Balsamic Moon Phase: release and transform

Moon in Taurus

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

Skill: practice opening the lotus blossom of your heart

Negative Imprint: mistrust, rejection of information

Positive Imprint: trust, acceptance of information

Today is the last day before a new lunar cycle (new energetic month) begins - the New Moon in Gemini.  It's important to look at the last month's energy in its totality before we move into the next cycle.  We want to release whatever we do not want to carry into the next month.  In one way or another, each of us has been carrying some sort of load.  To remind everyone, here is the nature of the energy that has been in place for us during the past month:

As a whole, 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 when this was written - the New Moon in Taurus on April 29.  Where do you stand at the last day of this energy?  By the end of the day, you may have a much better idea because today's energy invokes the ""music of the spheres" to bring things into alignment, understanding, and direction.  Paths are visible.  Wisdom is delivered to us.

Energetic signatures like the ones in effect today come along only once in a while.  The energy is lofty and spiritually-charged.  Messages are in the air.  Something is knocking at the door to our hearts, asking to be let in.  Guidance and protection from "on high" is so close we can touch it.  It's a very special day.

The lower octave of the energy involves themes of waiting instead of taking initiative, fear of commitment, not trusting new information and ideas, not seeing depth, and fear of loss of independence.

As we release the past month and prepare for the infusion of new energy tomorrow, there are a few things we can do to facilitate the process.

  • Listen to or play music.  Data travels along acoustics.  Musical compositions and random lyrics that we are drawn to carry information to help us gain wisdom.
  • Listen to others.  Active listening is a skill that can be developed.  Listen intently when others are speaking.  You may catch something you have not previously understood.  This includes listening to conversations, podcasts, radio shows.
  • Practice the skill of opening and closing the lotus blossom of your heart so that whatever is knocking can enter.  Trust it.
  • Understand that beliefs are more important than thoughts today.

The Mahavidyas Bhuvaneshvari and Tara, aspects of the goddess Gaia Sophia who are The World Nurse and The Rescuer respectively, are preparing to turn over the reins to Bagalamukhi tomorrow.  Let's give them a standing ovation of gratitude today.  They worked hard to help us as "red cross nurses" this month.  And we are stronger for it.  Tomorrow, a month of increasing inner strength and coming forward for ourselves begins.

For now, we revel in the sublime energies of a precious day.
