The New Moon in Taurus on May 4, 2019 (6:44pmEST) is lunar beltane, sensual festival of natural riches.
Barefoot Moon. Tastebud Moon. Fingerprint Moon. Cellular memory Moon. Outside Moon. Lie-down-on-the-ground Moon. Hands-in-dirt Moon. Moon of the makers, the carvers, the gardeners. A Moon to sow seeds.
A Moon without pretense.
Just be, and uncover the riches.
Spirit imbues Body and brings it alive. Fecund times. Summer begins in the Northern Hemisphere.
Taurus is the reminder that nature never hurries, and yet everything is accomplished.
Patience. Act not. Do nothing but take in the nourishment that surrounds.
What’s here is more than enough.
Let all growth be organic. Elemental. Whatever is growing, offer it food and water. Give it light and breath. Remove expectations and curiosities. Resist the urge to poke, prod, or tinker. Life is made to grow. Marvel at this, and let it be.
Slow down. Sit. Wait.
Feel as much as you can. Expand your capacity to feel even more.
Sink into senses. Let the sap rise within your cells. Embody. Appreciate these earthly delights.
See. Sunlight filtering through green leaves. Sweet purple violets dotting grassy hill. Trumpeting pink azaleas. Curling white dogwood. Glowing yellow buttercups.
Hear. Birdsong. Laughter. The rustling of deer in the garden at sunset. The quiet rumble of life when ripe. As the pulse of the day dies down, listen to the dark. Mushrooms pushing through forest floor. The slightly perceptible sounds of fiddleheads unfurling into ferns when no one is watching.
Smell. The fragrance of flowers in bloom. The scents of soil after a rain. The pungent flavors of warmth swirling off skin. Odors of life, of love, and of cooking.
Taste. Dewy morning nectar. Sweet, salt, fat, and savory. Butter, fruit, and flour. Vegetal grasses, slightly snapping between teeth. Thick threads of pollen riding in the wind.
Touch. The furs and the feathers. Scale and bark. Fin and stone. Rough, smooth, silky, cool, crawly. Textures and patterns teeming with life. Underneath it all, layers upon layers of hearts, beating. Let them graze you as you walk by. Let them grace you.
Life touches us through our senses. Sensing is a gateway to knowing.
We are born into these bodies, born into our senses. Pleasure is our treasure.
Enter the body completely. There is nothing to transcend or rise above. Ground in. Leave behind patterns of denial and restriction. Embrace the opulence of being. Settle into the felt-sense sigh of relief.
Ahh, I am here. I am worthy.
The more we be, the more we feel. The more we feel, the more we notice. The more we notice, the more we can imbibe. The more we imbibe, the more we can appreciate. The more we appreciate, the more life becomes love.
All that we are, all that we need, is right here.
Gratification. Enrichment. Wealth.
More than enough.
Be. Feel. And prosper.
Wed the land. Make your vows. Become partner, steward, and loyal lover to Earth. Bless the land and be blessed by the land.
Marry yourself to the unconquerable wealth of being.
We are here. Not-knowing quite how we’re growing, but listening and watching for cues. Asking many questions. Viewing signs and sussing out choices. Coming to crossroads and blazing new trails.
We are here. Stepping off pedestals. Relinquishing tyranny and hierarchy. Clearing out constructs that prop up falsehood. Relaxing control to allow for collapse. Revising our boundaries. Reframing “limitations,” now that we know we are more than enough.
We are here, in collaboration. Rich without ownership. Sharing feast and profits. Allowing resources to come and go by their own innate rhythms. Trusting the economies of ecology, and learning from them. Remembering real respect and response-ability. Learning how to live without shielding ourselves from life.
Trusting in presence and reverence. Tuning ears to the rhythmic language of nature. Whetting our lips and our appetites. Becoming substantial. Dancing the dance without any name.
At one with the turning of the wheels.
