I thought it would be fun and healing to make a video of me working with a Rose of Jericho (a resurrection plant) today. Individually and collectively it's a good time to be grateful for what we have, release what we no longer need and plant seeds of intentions for our futures. I will do a follow-up video on my Birthday which is Easter Sunday, April 12th to see the progress of the resurrection of this special plant!
Please note: I misspoke in the video but I wanted to do it in one take. I was not clear about Jesus' death. He celebrated the Passover with his disciples on Nisan 14 and was betrayed that night. I realize he didn't die that same night. His commandment was on the Passover when he said to 'keep doing this in remembrance of me'. - Luke 22:19 - That is why I grew up celebrating the Passover as a Christian.
How are you? Is there anything you've noticed or learned? These are some of the things I've noticed, patterns and coincidences relating to our current chaos. I mention different connections and patterns all the way until the end. What do you think? Are you interested in learning more about balancing this element so you aren't as vulnerable?
A great source about this element and different forms of grief that I referenced in the video is here: https://agelessherbs.com/metal-element/
Every Full Moon I do this simple and quick meditation to clear everything out in preparation for the next moon cycle but it can be done anytime you feel you need it. Enjoy!
New Moon in Aries ~ New Lunar Year
This is an important time to set an intention for the next lunar year. This New Moon is in Aries and the sun is in Aries as well. My sun sign is Aries and although it isn't the strongest influence in my chart I embrace the inner child. Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, related to the root chakra, foundations, renewal, rebirth and hope. Since the moon is new, beginning a new lunar cycle for the year and is in the sign that represents new beginnings there is no better time than now to get serious about what direction you want your life to go in for the rest of the year.
Aries is always playful though so look at your hopes and dreams with childlike wonder. Like a child, hold on to the belief that anything you imagine can happen. Resist the inner critic, the "logical" grown-up inside you that tries to protect you from being hurt by crushing your dreams before they even have a chance to be planted. Trust that with the right amount of faith, intention and determination you can make your dreams your reality.
When setting your intention remember that before taking any type of action make absolutely sure you are certain. Trust your instincts, be patient (Aries influence is a 'dive in head first without thinking things through' influence), embrace new ideas, have faith and lots of courage. Heal your heart, your relationships and your preconceived notions around relationships of all kinds (Venus retrograde is already forcing this right now). Then you will clearly see and feel what it is you truly want.
It's best to write your intentions down and check in with your progress throughout the 28 day lunar cycle. For now, notice any old belief, habit or pattern that has held you back or kept you in a state of fear. Without judgement release it and create a powerful intention from there. What can you be more open to?
Venus Retrograde officially began on March 4th this year but it entered the shadow zone January 30th. It began hitting me hard about a week before the 4th though. Maybe it's because my ruling planet is Venus (in Taurus) or maybe it's my imagination... Either way I feel as though my life was a particular way and then in the last week I found out I live in a giant snow globe and some unseeable force shook it up and I'm still floating in the air watching life happen around me but unable to touch or interact with any of it. Is anyone else feeling this way?
