Why do I keep forgetting that?
Today is a last-quarter waning moonday in the sign of Taurus. An opportune time for dismantling, sorting, putting in place. For releasing matters of the past. For tying up loose threads. Yesterday, the messy desktop nearly sorted, filed, and cleared itself; normally it's not so easily done. Hopefully, the same magic will be in play today with the computer area here and the walk-in closet that I can't set foot into. And goodness knows, there's a lot of dangling threads around the house.
Taurus rules the teeth, jaws, ears, throat and neck, including the thyroid gland -- the fifth chakra, the center of self-expression. The health of the thyroid gland is thought to reflect our sense of self and speaking our truth -- whether we feel lacking in some way and then need outside approval or are secure in ourselves. Along the same lines, the teeth represent our indecision -- the ears, our inner voice.
My stress list from last moonday has grown. Stress is a reaction to an outside circumstance and I want to change my inner response. Sometime this week before the new moon on Friday, I'll go to the garden altar and offer the list to the power of fire and transformation. I'll scatter its ashes in the garden if the wind doesn't carry them off first. And then trust that I've tried hard enough.
You are enough. xo
