“I am not your cornfield,
not your uranium mine, not your calf
for fattening, not your cow for milking.
You may not use me as your factory.
Priests and legislators do not hold
shares in my womb or my mind.
This is my body. If I give it to you
I want it back.
My life is a non-negotiable demand.”
‘Right to Life’ excerpt

New moon in earthy Taurus AND a partial eclipse of the sun.
Dark moon, dark sun
Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn align
Sit with yourself
Sit with the dark
And the light.
What is true
What is false
What is working
What is not
Consider it all.
Make new plans
A new cycle
“…To a woman of the Celtic nations, to become Elder is above all to become Cailleach: to represent the integrity and health of the wild places and creatures of this world.
To become Elder is to become strong – strong as the white old bones of the earth, strong enough to endure the long, lonely vigil to the end of the world.
To become Elder is to hold the power, stay the course.
Above all, to become Elder is to become the bean feasa, the Wise Woman: the one who knows the secrets and speaks the languages of the land, who speaks with the moral authority of the Otherworld, who weaves the dreaming of the world.”
I have a new goal.

Full moon in airy Libra, the champion of balance and fairness and equality.
Where are you out of balance with your true self?
What small steps can you take towards alignment and balance? What can you shed from your life? What can you add?
Who or what can help you create more balance?
