Taurus: Zodiac Girl Series with Clipping Path Stock Vector - 4539055

Present Moon Sign/Phase/House:

  • Date:  June 16 @ 5:35am (ET) @ 3:35am (PT)
  • Moon Sign: Taurus
  • Moon Phase: 4th
  • Void-of-Course: June 18 @ 8:02am (ET) @ 5:02am (PT) to Moon in Gemini later that night : Moon in Taurus v/c is one of the 4 “good signs”
  • Opportunity Period: June 17 @11:04am (ET) @ 8:04am (PT): This time is best used for practical matters.

**NOTES**: Mercury is in storm and goes retrograde on the 17th (PT) on the 18th (ET) 

What does this mean? 

  • Taurus needs emotional and material security, so we may find we are more interested in our financial affairs. 
  • This may prove to be a good time to make investments for the future or to begin plans for the next financially responsible phase. 
  • Taurus has lots of patience, indicating this could be a good time to deal with people/projects/situations that take up more time than is liked. 
  • This could be a tricky position for some of us… please keep in mind that our partners (personal and business) are not our possessions… we must remind ourselves to give them their “personal space” just as they allow us ours… 🙂
  • For some of us, this influence may guide or push us to make some serious, long-lasting changes where our residential situations are concerned… Where we live and who we allow to share that very personal space with us is important… 
  • Take care when making choices regarding, residential moves and financial investments… our emotions are tied up in our investments… and for some that may mean that their happiness is also tied up in the financial side of things… 
  • While the moon in Taurus will affect all of us, those with the following may feel the effects a little more.Those who have strong Scorpio in their charts to a lessor effect.
    • Sun in Taurus,
    • Venus in Taurus
    • Sun in Libra
    • Moon in Libra
    • Any aspects to the Moon, Venus.
    • Ascendant or Mid-heaven in Taurus
    • Moon in the 7th house

“The Past can never be erased, therefor we must focus on the present and the future, doing good, being kind to all, no matter the race, creed, sex or belief system”

The Moon and Astrology

HOW IT AFFECTS OUR DAILY LIVES… 

In astrology, the moon is connected to our emotions and reactions… how we are feeling on a given day may well be influenced by the sign that is visiting the moon… Each sign stays with the moon for up to 2.5 days…. 🙂 

The Moon Void-of-Course: 

There are times throughout the month when the moon isn’t fully immersed in any sign… this is when we say the moon is Void of Course… and when this occurs, we may feel “foggy” and “unfocused” … We may not be sure how we are truly feeling about a situation or a person…. Therefore it is not recommended that we make long-term commitments or important decision’s while the moon is Void of Course…. However there are 4 signs in the zodiac which may prove positive during the Void-of-Course moon… 

Good for Void-Of-Course Moon: These v/c signs may prove to be quite productive times.

  • Cancer
  • Taurus
  • Sagittarius
  • Pisces…
Opportunity Periods  (thanks to astrologer Jim Shawvan):

There are other periods throughout the month that are known as opportunity periods, when it can prove to be a positive time for most people, however if you have challenging aspects happening within your own chart you may not be able to make use of opportunity periods. 

Thanks to Jim Shawvan present day astrologer, William Lilly 17th century astrologer and Llewellyn’s Daily Planetary Guide for opportunity periods.

Coronavirus = Panic: Climate Crisis = ??

SGC Admin:

We understand that the Coronavirus is a serious threat to our health, and we send out healing energy to all affected and hope that the situation does not last as long as is being aniticipated.

We also hope that lessons can be learnt from this global situation, which may be applied to the climate change crisis…

One of the many concerns about creating a cleaner environment, is our reduction on our relience of fossil fuels…

  • How do we do that?
  • We can’t just stop using oil?
  • How will we heat our home?
  • How will we transport our goods and foods?

The list of concerns is a long one, because we use oil in just about everything we use on a daily basis, not just in our modes of transportation. The concerns are real and they are legitimate… 

Changes in our lifestyle, changes in how and what we buy, changes in the “throw-away” mentality, is a start towards adjustment,   .. 

As we watch the rules and regulations being put into place in a relatively short space of time in an effort to protect the global populations from the Coronavirus… It shows us, that, YES we can make changes and implement regulations to help clean up our world… Once such changes are put in place, and (this is the important part) followed by everyone 🙂 other changes will follow…

Of course this isn’t the first time a population has had to “buckle down” and adapt to change for the benefit of the whole…. Have a look at how London (UK), France and the Channel Islands had to change everything they knew in order to survive… 🙂

We are an adaptable species, we have come a long way, and while we are concerned, over the Coronavirus some to “panic mode”, .. Perhaps, we can look at this “pandemic” and understand how our lives all over the globe are connected, and how easily it is to upset “the balance”… but most of all, to understand that we are fragile beings, and we need to respect that…

And just as the Corona Virus is spreading like the fires in Australia this past season… we need to “spread” respect for mother nature, to wake up to the fact that we are NOT the most important beings on this planet… and that our actions, whether they be spreading a virus because of the way we process food, or spreading destruction because greed & ego tell us it’s the only way to the “top” have a disasterous affect on the whole planet… A planet, that is equipped with everything we need to survive in comfort and in good health…

Can we do that, respect the fragility of our human form and respect mother nature…???

Maybe, but if that is going to happen, we have to think outside of the “box” we have to share more, be kinder, have faith that we will have what we need, when we need it… It’s important now, more then ever, that world leaders present workable, serious and practical solutions to replace our relience on fossel fuels, to change the materials used for packaging to ones that will bio-degrade, for the humane process of animals for meat production, to stop the destruction of our rain forests, to clean up and stop the pollution of our oceans and lakes… etc… etc… etc…

Change is within us.. 🙂 


Some Practical Tips to stay safe during the Corona Virus Situation:

  • Wash Hands a lot throughout the day, when you come in from the grocery store or any other errand: May need to moisturize, pick one that is unscented.
  • Wipe down, door knobs, light switches, counter tops, t.v. remotes, several times a day.
  • Change tea towels and hand towels ever few days
  • Change bed linens and any furniture coverings regularly
  • Wash animal blankets regularly
  • Take care of yourself, eat lots of veggies, drink lots of water… Stews, soups and spaghetti dishes are all good choices… Try to limit sugar intake. Get your sleep, and get some exercise in… laugh a lot … 🙂
  • If you are under isolation, ask a friend or a relative to pick up the bits and pieces that you need and leave them on the door step… 🙂

Good luck to everyone one who is currently under isolation… catch up on you reading and creative projects if you are feeling well enough…

From our inbox to you from the Dark Pixie on “what it means to be an empath”

newsjoywhatmeanstobeanempath

An empath is one who is sensitive by nature, able to feel the moods of others and at times pick up their intentions, thoughts and more. Many empaths are lightworkers, if not all, which means that in addition to one’s personal life purpose, the empath is meant to serve humanity for the highest good of all. Likely, if you are an empath, you are drawn to doing just that in whatever capacity feels the most fitting for you.

At heart, empaths are kind, generous, loving and dedicated individuals, but many also have mischievous and solitary natures. Many empaths share a close bond to animals and nature because the vibration is a match more than with many people.

Living in the world as an empath can be challenging at times. An empath must shield and ground daily to avoid picking up unwanted energies. Care must be taken with relationships of all types because often the light of the empath is sought by those who have dimmed their own.

Another challenge can be found in the competing desires of wanting to help and serve versus needing solitude; balance must be realized but this can take many life lessons to accomplish. Most of all, an empath must remember to give themselves the warm love and compassion that they so freely lend to others, believing in themselves and embracing their life mission in every way.

From our inbox to you from: DailyOm Madisyn Taylor on “seeing the bigger picture”

Seeing The Bigger Picture


BY MADISYN TAYLOR

 

We have created imaginary boundaries, sectioning ourselves into countries and states, forgetting that in reality we are all living together.

Seeing an image of the planet Earth taken from space inspires awe in many of us, since we can clearly see the connectedness of all of us who live upon this planet. We have created imaginary boundaries, sectioning ourselves into countries and states, forgetting that in reality we are all living together, breathing the same air, drinking from the same water, eating food grown from the same earth. We share everything on this planet, whether we are conscious of it or not, with other people, and those people are our brothers and sisters. Keeping a photograph or painting of the planet Earth in a prominent place in our homes can be a positive way to remember our interconnectedness.

Meditating on the fact that any sense of separation we have from one another is truly an illusion, we will naturally begin to make more conscious choices in our daily lives. The simple act of preparing food, or determining how to dispose of our refuse, can be done with the consciousness that whatever we do will affect all our brothers and sisters, no matter how far away they live, as well as the planet herself. When we foster this kind of awareness in ourselves out of a feeling of awe, it becomes easier to be conscious than to fall back into old habits of thinking of ourselves as separate.

When we contemplate the earth in her wholeness, we attune ourselves to the truth of the bigger picture, which is the Earth, and all of us, every one of us, living on her body. We are connected to one another in the most intimate way, because we literally share our living space. As more people become aware of the reality of our inter-dependency, things will shift in a positive direction, and much of the discord that we see now will give way to a more cooperative, loving conscious. This is happening already, so as our consciousness grows, we can join with the many other minds working to live in the spirit of togetherness.

Making Magic in Your Garden
By Patti Wigington
 

The garden can be one of the most magical places in your life. As spring approaches, let’s look at how to plan, create, and grow your magical garden, as well as ways to create specialty gardens, herb plots, and more!

Garden Folklore and Magic

The very act of planting, of beginning new life from seed, is a ritual and a magical act in itself. To cultivate something in the black soil, see it sprout and then bloom, is to watch a magical working unfold before our very eyes. The plant cycle is intrinsically tied to so many earth-based belief systems that it should come as no surprise that the magic of the garden is one well worth looking into.

Plant a Magical Moon Garden

 

A lot of people don’t realize you can grow plants and flowers that bloom at night. Cultivating a moon garden is a great way to get in touch with nature, and it provides a beautiful and fragrant backdrop for your moonlight rituals in the summer. If you plant these lovelies close to your house, you can open the windows and take advantage of their aromas as you sleep.

READ NOW

 

As spring arrives, our gardens begin to bud and eventually bloom. For hundreds of years, the plants that we grow have been used in magic. Flowers in particular are often connected with a variety of magical uses. Now that spring is here, keep an eye out for some of these flowers around you, and consider the different magical applications they might have.
