Welcome, dear friends, to this intuitive moon journaling guided meditation,
For the Scorpio Moon Cycle 2021. The Taurus full moon this month is a Partial Lunar Eclipse, so there is energy around opportunities for your personal beginnings or endings.
Using Universal Time, the dates are November 4th through December 4th, 2021
We will journal together in a meditative approach, open to our intuition, and create initial journaling phrases to align with the moon cycle.
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.
The moon’s gradually changing reflective light provides a guiding template for personal and collective nurturance and comfort. Connect with the moon right now – perhaps you may know where it is in your sky at this moment. Visualize a shimmering thread that goes the full distance between you and the moon.
This sacred cycle 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.
Let’s now begin our intuitive Moon journaling together.
