time to lighten up

time to lighten up

The moon has now shifted into Libra & has begun waxing for another lunar month after yesterday’s new moon.
 
So if you’ve been feeling more tired & disillusioned than usual over the past week, you should start to lighten up in every way as the lunar light increases.
 
Moon in Libra shines a light on the power of co-operation. So if you’ve been feeling more like a servant (shadow Virgo) than one who serves the greater good & bears their burden sustainably, pay attention to any intuitive insights you now receive so you can make adjustments to strike a balance between being of service to self & others.
 
Libra moon helps us lighten up with the ‘talk therapy’ of social interaction so if you’ve been a recluse in response to the waning energy of the past week, now is the time to reconnect with friends & rejoin the land of the living if you’ve been navigating the psycho-emotional depths within.
 
Libra moon helps us regain a balanced perspective that in turn helps us restore our personal equilibrium. With all the personal planets (those closest to Earth), except the moon still in Virgo this is a great time to evaluate how we can meet our soul needs in practical ways.
 
Blessings on your day,

priestess reborn

priestess reborn

Happy New Moon in Virgo everyone.
 
We have Sun, Moon, Mercury & Mars already in Virgo & Venus going into Virgo today – so 5 planets in Virgo, the sign of the priestess…signalling a return to the sacred by rebirthing a new state of awareness.
 
Any child born today will have spent lifetimes in ancient mystery schools & temples & honed their esoteric understanding & gifts with a strong sense of service to others.
 
For those already incarnated who are dedicated to serving the sacred & raising the consciousness of the collective, the last few days may have been especially challenging as the shadow side of Virgo surfaced.
 
Some internal spaces you may have journeyed include:
 
– feeling dismayed at the lack of reverence for the sacredness of life on our planet
– feeling overworked & unsupported like a powerless servant
– scrutinising the effectiveness of your efforts & feeling they’ve been ineffective & therefore pointless
– questioning what you’re doing here & yearning for your spiritual home
 
With the moon forming a square to Saturn you may feel emotionally upset at perceived restrictions that feel imposed upon you so be mindful of the power of your thoughts & words since new moon is the time we seed our experiences for the coming lunar month.
 
So focus on what you do want rather than what you don’t & keep asking yourself, ‘How do I want this to look?’ & make time for creative visualisation, even if it’s only when you’re on the loo!

giving & receiving

giving & receiving

The moon is still waning in Cancer, the sign of the inner nurturer.
 
So if you have been neglecting your needs of late you may find your health sounds the alarm with the sun in Virgo, the sign of health.
 
Cancer evokes our mother issues. As grown women we tend to repeat the behaviours we observed in our Mums as our primary female role models.
 
This often takes the form of over giving to the point of being sick on a cyclic basis. This is endemic because our patriarchal culture imprints an expectation that ‘good’ women give & ask nothing in return – an ideal which is unsustainable.
 
I was told last week that Aboriginal Australians are not allowed to accept a gift from a generous person as they recognise these people will give to the point of having nothing for themselves.
 
Then a couple of days later in my Red Tent course forum I hear of two more women being attacked for charging money to cover their costs & time for women to attend their women’s circles. Sadly it’s often women stuck in this patriarchal mindset who are those perpetuating this prejudice.
 
Like many women I look forward to our collective shift in consciousness beyond a monetarized society…one where we all share what we have as we’re taught to do as children by our first spiritual teacher, our mothers. This is how indigenous societies who honoured what is freely given from the Earth Mother also behaved.
 
Until that time, we must develop enough self worth to honour our time, exchange of service & overheads rather than undermine our needs in an effort to be approved of others.
 
This can be a challenge given the 5000 years of conditioning that undervalues feminine skills & talents resulting in feminine professions being underpaid & expects mystic services be given free of charge even though priestess women are not supported financially by a temple or church.
 
Most importantly do not put this expectation on yourself, that what you do is of little value – whether you are a care giver, teacher, spiritual advisor, celebrant, healer, artisan, author, poet, musician or home maker.
 
If you are someone who has a pattern of over-giving to the point of burn out, dare to confront the underlying reasons & then implement strategies to correct this imbalance between giving & receiving & seek a hypno or Theta therapist to help you heal the subconscious beliefs that perpetuate this behaviour.
 
This is one of the main lessons we each need to master to maintain an open heart. If you’d like to master each of the lessons required for our 7 major energy centres to remain open & balanced, join me for my next Inner Goddess online course starting Sept 20. Details here

home comforts

home comforts

The moon is moving into Cancer today so this will see us slow down, drop in & reconnect with ourselves & those close to us after the past two days of being only partially available due to incessant monkey mind chatter & a need for constant stimulus.
 
Since Cancer rules home & family, you may find it hard to leave your comfy nest during this lunar transit. So consider being like a hermit crab & taking the creature comforts with you if you have to leave home to work in a sterile environment such as an office. For example, pack left over comfort food from home for lunch, take comfy socks or house slippers you can wear under your desk once you kick off your shoes at 9.05am or play soothing music during your daily commute.
 
Alternatively, if home isn’t something you miss when you’re away you may find you feel extra sensitive to the dynamics in your current home situation. With the moon waning down to it’s lowest ebb you may also find yourself reviewing possible changes to address what isn’t working at home.
 
Cancer moon sees us seeking nurturance as our inner child seeks mothering. So give this to yourself in creative ways & your inner child will be less likely to act out to get this need met externally.
 
Blessings on your day,
Tanishka

detox time

detox time

The moon is still waning in Gemini as we arrive at last quarter moon today sooooo…
 
This is a great time to kick old habits that aren’t doing your health any favours. Why?
 
Last quarter moon signals the start of the final week in the lunar month, which is the optimal time to identify anything that’s holding us back & sabotaging our health & happiness.
 
So if something intuitively comes to mind as you read this, know that you’re ready to flick the switch internally & release it with relative calm & minimal resistance.
 
The focus is on health this month with the sun moving through Virgo, the sign of health & wellbeing until Sept 23. Whatever sign the sun is in influences our ability to take action…so rather than just thinking about it, we’ll make it happen.
 
Sept 23 is also the Equinox (Autumn for those of you in the Northern hemisphere & Spring for those of us in the South). This is a time when the ancients would detox to kick start the immune system & restore their balance because they understood this as the time of equal light & dark when the natural energy is high, making it easier to eat less & still feel energised.
 
Moon in Gemini is likely to put the relevant info you need in your path synchronistically so stay curious, alert & read the signs you’re being shown to optimise your health.
 
Blessings on your day,
Tanishka
