Full moon in earthy, sensual Taurus. A total lunar eclipse will be visible in North America in the early morning hours of Tuesday. AND the sun is sitting in Scorpio communing with Venus.
All of this makes for an intense few days. Expect to feel stirred up and emotional. Be gentle with yourself. Stay grounded – root deep.
Make time every day to do whatever calms you; reading a good novel, taking a bubble bath, going for a hike in nature, meditating, practicing yoga… whatever calms your mind and relaxes your body.
You may receive insights during the peak eclipse energy. Don’t try to force it – just be open to ah ha’s and new ideas that surface.
Now is NOT the time to make big life decisions. Save those for another week.

New moon and Venus in Scorpio, the sign of the shaman / sorceress / witch. And a partial solar eclipse adds heat to the cauldron.
Focus on Self and Soul; use meditation, yoga, breath work, dance, time in nature to help you drop in and contemplate.
What do you need to release? Now is the time for letting go.

Eclipses are said to amplify our thoughts and intentions a hundredfold or more. Both positive and negative thoughts are amplified. So, why not harness that power?
Take time to think about what you REALLY want.
What do you want to amplify in your life? What do you want more of? What nurtures you? What do you need to grow and bloom?
Focus on what feeds your body-mind and spirit. What will it look like, taste like, feel like when you get what you desire?
