Third Quarter Moon Phase – Moon in Taurus/Gemini
Ruling Mahavidya: Dhumavati
Today, against heavy odds, we are asked to find and concentrate on the sweetness of life. From Ted Andrews’ Animal Speak:
“The bee is a reminder to extract the honey of life and to make our lives fertile while the Sun shines. The bee reminds us that no matter how great the dream, there is promise of fulfillment if we pursue it. The elixir of life is as sweet as honey, and the bee is a symbol that promises us that the opportunity to drink of it is ours if we but pursue our dreams.”
Complex energy and astrological aspects are charging today with potential for dramatic changes/advances/progressions in all areas of life, but particularly within romantic relationships. Things are happening fast today, but if we hold to the simple sweetness of life, the day will be easier. This means that we get back to basics, back to the heart of things, back to the bare essentials.
Today’s energy carries a blow-back from darker forces in response to the recent work of the Mahavidyas. We are tempted to feel defeated, depressed, careless, hopeless, negative, defeated. Take the counter-measure of finding beauty in the natural world today and reducing things to the simplest possible sweetness.
