Taurus Moon Cycle 2021
Welcome, dear friends, to this guided meditation, for the Taurus Moon Cycle 2021, intuitive moon journaling.Using Universal Time, the dates are May 11 through June 10, 2021.
We will journal together in a meditative approach, open to our intuition and create initial journaling sentences to align with the moon’s phases. We open our compassionate hearts toward the highest and best for this moon cycle.
A brief note about weaving intuition into your daily life… sometimes staying constantly in tune with intuition can feel overwhelming. Please use an ongoing grounding exercise that works for your individual needs.
This guided journaling meditation is not meant as a substitute for professional mental health or spiritual counseling.
Gather your journal, pen or pencil to write your emergent intuitive journaling sentences during this session.
Gather your natal astrological chart if you are working with it today to identify the moon’s phases in your natal houses.
To help us with grounding before we begin, let’s take this next moment to do some slow deep breathing, using your own rhythm.
We return once again – to the moon’s reflective pattern of light and darkness. It is a guiding template for global, community, and self-nurturance. This sacred cycle nurtures and regulates the ocean’s tides, our cycles of blood, and all cycles of life and regeneration. The ancient repeating pattern of light and darkness of the moon’s phases calls to us, inviting us again today: for self-reflection from our inner knowledge – and – supporting us together to experience a state of intuitive listening.
In our meditation today, we follow the moon’s cycle with the imagery of a flower, from germination to flower to seed, and align with the recurring and regenerative cycle of nature.
If you are using your own natal chart, identify house placement of moon’s degree at each phase. Choose keywords for that House; these are nouns, to further complete your sentence.
Basic keywords for the houses are:
First House: my self/my image
Second House: my resources/my income
Third House: my communications/my thoughts
Fourth House: my home/my foundations
Fifth House: my creativity/my joy
Sixth House: my health/my daily habits
Seventh House: my relationships/my commitments
Eighth House: my shared resources/ my intimacies
Ninth House: my beliefs/my wisdom
Tenth House: my career/ my soul’s calling
Eleventh House: my community/my tribe
Twelfth House: my spirituality/my oneness with the universe
