Recharging Under the Taurus New Moon
The past week I've been feeling severely burnt-out, and I haven't been able to figure out why. Part of the reason is that I'm used to this feeling coming from depression, but I'm not feeling depressed. I'm feeling physically out-of-whack. I had my period last week, so I'm sure that's playing into it, but I'm still not feeling myself. I'm more exhausted than usual, my stomach is acting up, I'm having frequent headaches, and it's all dragging me down.
I'm still not totally sure what's going on, but I think part of the problem is that I'm spending too much time indoors and feeling disconnected with nature. As a Taurus, I feel that disconnect especially acutely, so I'm taking time this New Moon to recharge and reconnect and hopefully get my body back to a balanced state.
Sometimes we forget that our mind, body, and spirit are all interconnected. I've been feeling a little frustrated in my career lately, and I think part of that is stemming from the fact that I've been neglecting my body. This Taurus New Moon (yet another Supermoon, by the way) is the perfect time to do some work on the physical plane. Manifesting physical health and well-being is just as crucial to success as getting into the right mindset.
With so many planets in retrograde right now things are a little off-kilter, so, even if you're not feeling as blah as I am, this is a good time to rebalance and reorient ourselves and figure out what's necessary and what needs to be cleared away. Sometimes we accumulate so much stuff that we lose sight of what really matters. Now is the time to get back in touch with our truth.
Personally, I intend to do some yoga by the light of the morning sun, walk the dog around the neighborhood, maybe just sit outside and read. I'm also sensing a floral-infused bath in my future. A cold front even came through yesterday, so the weather is actually beautiful instead of its usual sweltering, hell-adjacent sauna. I'm going to water my plants and make a superfood smoothie and hydrate like water's going out of style. I'm going to treat my body like the temple that it is and, hopefully, start to realign under this New Moon's quiet, powerful, sensual energy.
How are you celebrating this Taurus New Moon?
