🌙" The moment of this Taurus New Moon opens a portal for you to connect with your inner stillness (aka inner serenity, the quiet mind). When you access your “inner stillness,” you may notice a sense of true security. In this headspace of harmony & peace you trust in your value." @thenuminous 🌙

Dark moon--in the root: Here is my familiar, the cat who was not a cat, Nematona Vesta at this time last year--the yard all enchantment. She died in October and on this dark moon day I root into losses and grief. In the solar cycle of the past twelve moons I have lost my health, my job, my educational pursuit, my dream of a certain future, my path. They are buried now, rotting down to bone like the little cat in her grave at the edge of the garden, huge stargazer lilies pushing up overhead, fertilized by her death. For death is fertile, all this change and pain means transmutation--an energy of becoming. This I know and know, have learned and learned again. This grief is not new, these losses neither fresh nor unexpected. I know by now death is a cycle of beautiful release in all its mysterious aching.
Today I am aching, my body undone from too much effort. It is a bed day, a sun specked window day, and so I miss my cat, which makes me miss my energy, my work in the world. I miss making plans and connecting with people and the communion of collaboration and study. I miss teaching. I miss walking without effort and long days in the garden. I miss my sense of direction and having a sure answer when people ask what I do. .
And that is where my grief becomes a lie. A story without cycle, the myth of linearity. Because like the moon this gorgeous wrenching darkness is a part, not a whole. If I can't see the future it doesn't mean absence. It means patience for what will be revealed.
We rebegin, always whole, above, below, light and dark.
Decided to post my own #JRPGscatter because a bunch of people I follow have been doing it so I felt inspired. I've always loved JRPGs and after beating #Persona5 today, I'm reminded what makes these games so special! Not pictured: the great JRPGs I own digitally like Xenogears, Xenoblade Chronicles, Parasite Eve, Chrono Trigger, and many others
in a moonlit night
fine words I write
madness they may be
but bring joy to me
my mind you reach
my soul you teach
your heart is mine
but the words are fine
in the sunlit morning
hours into transforming
when my head still spins
and your smile still grins
as the tea hits home
words I'll try to hone
to thank you for sharing
thoughts of me caring

When you step away from your calendar and lists of "todos" to pay attention to the cycles of the moon it allows room for magic to enter your life and increases your ability to connect with something much larger than yourself. I have been teaching Full Moon Yoga classes each month for the past year and want to start incorporating this into my work online and the magazine. The next one is Wednesday, May 10th in Scottsdale, AZ @alislivinglifestyleboutique. There is a powerful New Moon tonight and I wanted to share a bit about how you could honor yourself and connect to the moon's cycle over the next 4 weeks.
Details about all these lunar goodies are on the blog! Click the link in my profile to check them out!
Happy New Moon in Taurus! This new moon is bringing forth an Earthly inquiry straight to the land of our DESIRES. Taurus folks like to feel good, look amazing, eat yummy food and have nice things. This sign is ruled by Venus- the goddess of Love. They are also known as the Bull for their powerful, stubborn and immovable energy. Making this New Moon and Taurus season a great time to look into the health of our senses and abundances. Use this time to get serious about dedicating this month to just YOU!
