The new moon is our time of rebirth. This is when the moon starts its new life cycle and so do we. This is an example of how everything in the universe mimics each other.
With the new moon in Taurus, we mimic Taurus and its ruling planet, Venus. We start to feel a stronger connection to our intuition, our mind and feelings, and the way we process emotion. Taurus is a feminine sign focused on family, security, home and establishment. This energy encourages us to find stability- in our close relationships, in our home and inside of ourselves. If we are unable to find stability, we may be thrown into a place of insecurity and doubt. This turns into built up rage, bringing out our bull horns and causing us to destroy all old habits, beliefs and ways of being in a quick burst of outward fury. After releasing this anger, we see that all that is left for us is a fresh start.
In this cycle, let's aim to establish beliefs, behaviors and relationships that allow us to grow in a conscious and healthy way, planting seeds now that will only bring us success and prosperity later.

Scorpio embodies the human life cycle: birth, death, sex and transformation, and the natures of humanity is reflected in all of their behaviors. Scorpio has 4 archetypes of being:
The scorpion, their lowest and most primal form;
The human, a step above primal, with thought occuring before their emotional impulses;
The snake, the symbol of transformation and evolution;
The eagle or Phoenix, their highest form, focused on giving love and support and receiving knowledge, wisdom and a deeper connection to their spirituality.
During the full moon, we are at the peak of our monthly emotional cycle, with our manifestation powers at their highest. Comparing it to Scoprio's cycle, the full moon is our greatest time of sexuality and transformation. Our alone time will be used to birth change in ourselves, shedding our old skin. We will also act with more passion and conviction, adapting the traits of either the scorpion, human, snake or eagle/Phoenix.
The full moon is a great time to get in touch with yourself on all levels. Utilize Scorpio boldness to face yourself honestly.
Dark. I remember the vision you showed me. The line of planets before me. Ready to be touched.
To be plucked. Discovered. One by one, their mysteries.
‘You already know them,’ you whispered.
‘You’re here to remember’ you told me.
You never withheld from me all of your majesty. Your sacredness. Your magic.
Rather, you surrounded me. Held me. Comforted me. Streams of grace penetrated my face, my eyes, my Soul, and sprang forth from my nails!
Time kept coming. Kept coming. And you kept swirling, enveloping me, entrancing me.
Though I did not always hold You, because I did not yet understand.
I did not know.
I had not yet allowed myself to openly receive You.
I was still re-membering My-Self.
My Soul disconnected from the ever-shifting present
from my body
from your stream. Your sacred, sacred stream of Love. Of healing.
What I hold sacred is the fact, the knowledge, the essence that is and feeds me. Holds me.
Dwells in me.
Holds my wounds, my ghosts, dark tunnels- constantly bathes me in its eternally blessed, boundless waters.
Is helping me re-member my-self. All of my-self.
‘Come to me’ it says. ‘Hold your own pain,’ it says.
‘Face it. Dwell in it until it becomes good home!,’ it exclaims.
‘Feel your pain. Face the parts of you you don’t like much. And feel your desire change. Remove your mask, Tall one, and become that which you are. Me. Beingness. Love. Do this, and you shall thrive.’
Thrive- you asked of me. Thrive I demanded of my-self.
My sacred self weaves through time, and space, toppling age-old, bone deep, cell-paralyzing paradigms, dynamics and storehouses.
I am whole. Eternal. Beingness being here in the Now.
I am, that is, what I hold sacred. Exploring that who-that which I am through my ever-evolving, shape-shifting, life-giving, star-creating story. This is sacred to me.
I hold sacred, I remember all of the stories of my ancestors- their flight, their plight and never ending search for Home on earth. Their fleeing from their past, their present, letting go of their future for preservation of their sacred children’s.
I hold sacred their cries. Their tears. Their anger. Their focus. Their confusion.
And peace. Thoughts. Revelations. Their connection to the earth. This lives. Breathes in the fiber of my Being. As I hold them, I feel myself re-member. And then I remember. Breathe. Dwell. Shed. This is my process.
Their tongues spewing whistles of prayer, magic, Spark! To be in their majestic presence again…
I am their presence. Continued. Poured forth, etched from a deep gourd made of the earth, sky, ocean, ethers and blood. Made to do more than survive but thrive.
They are in my womb- gnawing, wrenching when I walk off my sacred, perfect path. They are my womb. And they hold me, keep me- grounded. Sane. Always at Home.

Aries is the first fire sign in the zodiac, and they bring lots of intense fire energy with them. Aries is focused on self. Self-understanding, self-love, emotions and thoughts. Aries likes their world to run their way, and it does not mind organizing it and the people in it to match that.
The new moon is our rebirth. It is our fresh start and switches up our perspectives, allowing us to re-set our intentions and move in a new direction. Allow Aries energy to assist you in beginning the Spring season the way you want it to. Focus on self, allow yourself independence and clean out any negative cords, unhealthy habits, and stagnancy. Now is the glow-up. Acknowledge your power.

The full moon in Libra comes right on time. A call for balance during our mercury retrograde, which can normally throw us off balance mentally, spiritually, emotionally, and may have us saying and thinking things that we usually wouldn't. Our thought processes might be hindering us during this time. Our logical mind is moving fast and full of energy; there are possibilities of finding ourselves in a mental tornado. "What can I do to fix all of these problems?!"
Remember faith. We can use this time to strengthen it and to learn how to find stability during chaotic times. We can use this time to get to know ourselves a little better.
The world can still be beautiful even when we are not in control of it.
