Gemini is your annual opportunity to update your world.  You may know exactly what needs updating. If not, you can start with your language.  Freshen up your vocabulary with a few new and enlivening words.  Listen to somebody younger, older, or with a different color skin, and steal a new term; use it for at least a week.  If you have a meditation practice, let your thoughts run a little before you go to silence.  Are inspiring—or self-defeating—mantras are running through your mind?

Taurus New Moon: Inner Wealth

StrangeSeraph

During Mercury’s three-week retrograde, resist the impulse to jump into new things or you’ll probably regret it. Instead, sift through all those notes you’ve been taking (especially if, like me, you’ve been listening to endless webinars and telesummits!) and separate the wheat from the chaff. True wealth is to be found by connecting with the Earth at this Taurus New Moon.

3-Minute Moon Ritual

Ground your body, clear your mind… Become aware of your body. Notice how gravity holds and connects you to earth. It’s as though your body is an ancient stone temple—solid, strong, secure.

I have been single for the last five years. After my marriage broke I fully dedicated myself to my children and  my studies. Now I have more time to think about a new inspiration, a new love. Can you tell me where and when are the opportunities for me to find a new partner?

I live in a town where famous gurus often visit. I remember one particularly famous one who offered darshan — a sacred event in which one sees and is seen by a genuine divine being. Several hundred of us descended on the church, then knelt and crawled to the little rug where we offered our bent heads to her transformative touch.

Scorpio Full Moon: Butterflies

Butterflies

My worst fear was happening. I was, for the first time ever, speechless. I could not only feel but I could see my own sweat dripping down onto the floor. I was humiliated. I felt like I was dying. And I was finally free. I cried all the way home, then woke up in the morning feeling brand new.

Scorpio Full Moon: Empty the Cup

3-Minute Moon Ritual

Drawing down the moon… Imagine above you the round glowing disc of the moon, bathing you in a protective circle of light.

Ask the Goddess

I love change and adventure, but often I feel this translates into going in so many directions, or initiating so many projects – that the action of bringing things to full fruition or completion doesn’t happen. How can I align more with the energy of commitment?

Note from Dana: I’m happy to have as my guest blogger, the talented flower essence artist, Jane Ellen. Her intimacy with Venus through flowers makes her an exquisitely passionate advocate for this campaign.
