The Grand Finale. Re-seeding and grounding our new reality.
The New Moon and Solar Eclipse will be the last major astrological event for a very busy month in the cosmic sky. I kept hearing that it will be the “grand finale,” which certainly makes sense. Besides being the finale, it is also the *culmination* as solar eclipses can often be. I have in jest called them in the past the “fire under the @$$,” and they can really get things moving. When in combination with a New Moon, it’s a powerful time of re-seeding and re-creating on many levels.
Beloveds there is a center point in the middle of the four points of the Cardinal Cross, that is likened to a its own “galactic center.” It is a place of peace, harmony and wisdom. It is also deeply healing as it contains the healing medicine of freedom from illusion. As you have journeyed through the stations of this particular cross you have grown and expanded immensely. This wisdom may not be immediately known to you, but will be revealed in an ever-expanding, subtle but tangible process. Shanti. ~ The Keepers, 4.27.14
I love the Sabian Symbol for this new moon and find it particularly appropriate, based on the energies of the month in general. Taurus 9: A Christmas Tree is decorated and shines in the darkness.
I feel the Christmas tree in this case is not so much a reference to any particular religion, but to the realm of the nature spirits and the deep forest which is very apt for Taurus. It is also a symbol of faith and hope, no matter how “dark” our outer circumstances may be or may have been. For some, this past month especially has been quite a trip through the underworld. On a collective level, no matter what our personal circumstances are we have all felt it; for empaths and sensitives, even more so. This also offers more evidence of just how supported and loved we are through these intense changes by the Universe. I find this personally to be very reassuring.
A note on the “dark of the moon” which is 48-72 hour window prior to the new moon: I am sensing and already seeing some evidence that this window will be particularly powerful. Since it is Taurus, it is distinctly connected to grounding/earthing, “seeding” new life, etc. That may be why I was drawn to plant flowers and cactus in both my front and back yard this weekend. I recommend some kind of symbolic act amenible to you. If is is artistic (a shout out to the Venusian influence,) in the form of visual art, gardening or music, even better.
Since we are dealing with the “grand finale” of April’s powerful energies, be prepared for some emotion to pass through. Taurus energy will be very helpful with this, in that it is not necessarily mental and more quiet, meditative and earthy. Allow yourself to be open to giving and receiving more love and nurturing. A suggestion the Keepers also gave on these energies is to “think bigger.” As in to drop more limitations about ourselves, our capabilites and our own loving nature.
Happy New Moon/Solar Eclipse friends and remember to keep it Cosmic!
NOTE: The New Moon is Tuesday, April 29 at 11:14 AM PDT/2:14 PM EDT. Stay tuned to the Cosmic Weather page for updated information on the Solar Eclipse.
