A June moon cloth is laid out and I've put down the tapestry needle to pick up the sewing needle. That's a little piece of citrine holding the moon down. On our table, the drum and other sound makers from a belated Summer Solstice celebration over the weekend. Like a still-life -- I think I'll leave them there for a while. The red lady is complete, her center a talisman of ruby, pomegranate and rose to strengthen qualities of the root chakra -- strength, courage, stability. It's a mighty nice feeling to have finished something.
Today is a waning moonday in the sign of Taurus. Taurus orients us back to the physical and the practical -- things begun or worked on under Taurus are usually long-lasting and may even increase in value. Patience and stability are keywords now -- the more stable, the more comfortable. You might not want to budge.
I've been reading and thinking about the Elements, how they lend themselves to us, how we can't really own or control them. Fire is lending itself right now in various places in the Southwest in the form of forest fires and extreme temperatures. It's hard to watch, it seems out of balance, but then again maybe it's creating balance instead. I don't know.
Hoping you are safe and comfortable and can stay put right where you are, if you so choose.
