I am a Healer, Psychologist, educator and Sound Therapist with an avid interest in consciousness and transpersonal experiences. Oh and did I mention Astrology?
The month of April has borne a major influx of disruptive energies leaving most of us feeling somewhat shaken and stirred. Events across the globe have reflected this. The major astrological influence was the ever tightening Cardinal Grand Cross on 23/24th April. We can now however take a breath and move into May.
With the sun in sensible Taurus it is time to reassess our connections to the earth. The new moon yesterday (29th) gave us a wonderful opportunity to review any outmoded behaviour patterns and to really connect with our unconscious drives in order to reevaluate just who we want to be in the future. Taurus is thoughtful and often considered slow but this is precisely because it is a sign that deliberates and does things in its own time, understanding that a step by step approach is the best way forward. No slap dash for Taurus!
In these times of tumultuous change we are being challenged to adapt moment by moment. Stress levels are high and tempers flaring as decisions have to be made on the spot. Thinking on your feet is an essential skill we all need in order to navigate our day to day. Taurean energy however reminds us to stop and smell the roses, to breath in the beauty around us and to appreciate the earth we walk upon. Taking this advice may seem impossible and yet just a couple of minutes of thoughts of gratitude each day, even just before you fall asleep, can make a tremendous difference to one's attitude, mood and hence experiences.
Whilst we may feel we are hurtling along at break neck speed with our foot firmly on the accelerator the best thing we can do for ourselves is to ease off and apply the brakes for a while. Remind yourself constantly that there is ease to be had in the present moment. Spring bird song right now is wonderful - take a moment to hear it!
