This book has taught me to appreciate the simplicity of life and gratitude for everything around me and inside of me. We are so busy pushing, trying, and struggling daily to “make things happen.” Once we are able to let go and allow the ebb and flow of the natural energies and divine timing to work in our favor, we are able to be serene, happy, and receiving. It is amazing how much the little things really do add up in positive and negative ways based on how we perceive it. We let work, other people, finances, and so much more get in the way of what’s truly important in life. Yes, we must be responsible and take care of what needs to be taken care of, however, this is not the extent of our purpose on this earth. Life is to be enjoyed with loved ones and love is to be extended to all including ourselves! We deserve the best that life has to offer because we work hard, have moral standards, and allow everything out of our control to just be. I have been able to reduce my stress and anxiety with the help of these teachings and I advise everyone to give this book a read!⠀⠀
A new moon is when the sun and moon are in conjunction with one another and there is no light reflecting from the sun onto the moon making it appear as if there is no moon in the sky. Since the sun and moon are pulling from the same direction our subconscious is able to surface to the forefront of our conscious mind. Our true dreams and desires express themselves to help guide us on our path and fulfill our life’s purpose. This lunar phase is the end of one cycle and the beginning of another allowing for a fresh start. It is often an opportune time to set our intentions to manifest what is needed to reach our goals whether it is buying a house, finding the perfect job that resonates with our soul, or taking a well needed vacation. Both the sun and moon will be in the astrological sign of Taurus amplifying both the masculine and feminine energies of this sign.
Taurus – The Earth Bull
Taurus is an earth sign making them hardworking, stable, logical, and oftentimes stubborn companions. The bull is also a fixed modality. Fixed signs are the strong foundations of the zodiac, who preserve tradition and are loyal and dependable. Venus is the ruling planet over Taurus, and represents love, nurturing, money, pleasure, and values. The new moon in Taurus is encouraging us to really figure out where we want to build a solid foundation, what we want to fill its contents with, and how we plan on going about our construction. Having the suns presence is the push we need to really make these tangible blueprints a reality. What areas of your life need stabilizing? Write out the logical steps to create this life you want. Remember that even baby steps are a form of movement. Be loving and nurturing toward yourself during this process. Enjoy the work you put into your manifestations, and allow yourself time to relax and recharge. Sturdy foundations take time, so have faith that divine timing is serving you and your higher purpose.
Master Builder 22
The date of this new moon in Taurus (4/26/17) adds up to equal the master builder number, 22, allowing us to build strong foundations and relationships through balance, harmony, expansion, and evolution. 22 enhances our ability to manifest our highest ideals and desires, and to work diligently on our life path to accomplish our soul’s purpose. The master builder is amplifying what the sun and moon in Taurus are urging all of us to do – begin again from the bottom. Look around you for signs from the infinite, divine universe, and explore within to create and build upon your greatest aspirations. We are being propelled forward by the many forces of the moon, the universe, the zodiac, numerology, our spirit guides, and most importantly, ourselves! The time is now to utilize all of these amazing synchronicities to our advantage by harnessing our intuition and innate talents. Allow yourself to explore every aspect of who you are to express your essence creatively building the infrastructure of your life.
Ground Your Soul
This is a time of planting ourselves and our lives firmly into the earth, and Smokey Quartz is a spiritual grounding stone. It pulls out and purifies negative energy from the aura, which we need while manifesting the lives we deserve. Sometimes it’s scary making changes, especially drastic ones that shift the very foundation we have found comfort and security even if it does not resonate with our true desires. Smokey Quartz also helps one be more engaging and able to make necessary change in their lives. Grant yourself the strength and empowerment to make these transformations to manifest the life you have always wanted!
