This month is such a game changer for everyone! Let's get right to itttt!!!!
A New Moon is when the universe opens a portal to connect you to a specific zodiac sign's energy that month.
It's a new beginning. It's when you let go of everything that is not working for you. A New Moon is the perfect time to set your intentions and follow up with actions. The first few days of the New Moon is pretty powerful. That's when you can draw most of it's powerful energy down to assist you. Use the New Moon to transform any negative habits into positive ones. A New Moon means the sun and the moon are in the same zodiac sign.
This New Moon of Taurus is very important because it is known to be the month of healing, the month of Light, the month of unconditional love. It offers us an opportunity to look within ourselves and focus on healing. Fulfillment is never found in the external; it resides within. The New Moon of Taurus reminds us to focus on what we want, ask for the help we need, and then take steps towards achieving those goals.
This month it's extremely important to understand how you can truly heal yourself.
Your biggest opponent is your thoughts. We think too much! We worry about the past and always stuck in the future, day dreaming, wasting energy on something that hasn't happened yet or may not even happen. The future is now.
The minute you control your thoughts you can be present. This month at least try. Give it a shot!
The only way to have control is to let go of control. If you think you already control your thoughts, then you are already out of control.
The key this month is to work on understanding that you can't mix your head and your emotions. It's a real challenge not mixing the two, but try. It's going to hard but try it. Everyday of our lives we mix our head and our emotions together. That is why we experience chaos and we are reactive. In business there is no emotions.
The reason most people are always so exhausted and tired is because there is a war inside of them. Pay attention to the days you are so busy you didn't have time to think. Notice how much energy you have that night that you can't even sleep. That's healing! You are not mixing your head and your emotions because you didn't have time to think!
Release those thoughts. Those thoughts are your real opponent, your obstacle, your blockage in life.
Why do we think and analyze so much? Because we are afraid of the truth. That's the only way to know yourself. In silence. This month is about freedom from your own nature.
Push yourself this month to ask the questions that are important in order to transform yourself.
Ask yourself about creation. What do you know about how you were created? Who are you?
Really ask yourself: Who am I? Why am I here?
We are afraid to know. We are so afraid of the truth. But this month we can know a little bit more by asking.
We all have a gift. A reason why we are here. Every single one of us. So ask yourself, What is my gift?
What is your gift?! Ask and listen in silence.
In today's world, we don't even look up to ourselves. We focus on admiring others instead of looking up to ourselves. Everyday millions of people go home depressed, not happy with their home, or their job or their family and in some cases, all of the above. This is because we haven't been taught to look up to ourselves. To look within.
This month of healing work on really looking up to yourself. Love yourself!
The New Moon of Taurus is all about going inwards and asking these questions. And that's when you heal. But you have to go inside! This month of Taurus also offers the opportunity to leave the world of addictions. If it controls you, it's a different God you are dealing with. If you are in control then you are revealing light. This applies to everyone and everything. Anything that has rules, it is controlling you. Only you should be in control of you. Nothing or no one else.
King Solomon chose the month of Taurus to build his temple. Why? Because it was the month of Light. The month with the most Light. It is the month of healing, unconditional love and Light. King Solomon wanted to make sure that this was the month he was creating and building his home.
Keep that in mind during The New Moon of Taurus. Anything you want to build with light, healing and unconditional month, go ahead and do it!
There you have it my bunnies!!! Remember you must go deep within yourself and ask questions this month! This is how you will experience transformation. And it should be painful. That's how you know you are experiencing transformation! This month of Taurus leave all things that control you. When you don't see the ego, understand you are out of control. Out of balance. When you can admit and see your ego, that's your healing, and then the transformation is on its way.
May you all take control of your soul and body during this New Moon of Taurus!!!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY to all my Taurus kittens!!! Here's to a fabulous month of healing, unconditional love, awareness, honesty, beauty, creativity and all filled with LIGHT!!!
