< Moon in Libra
May 25—Gibbous Moon: Budding.
Yesterday, detachment was the strategy. Today, emotional connection is more useful. This lunar cycle is full of elemental shifts. The season of Gemini (where the Sun is now), asks us to be adaptable. Have you noticed this? All of us have elemental strengths and challenges, ways we are naturally gifted and also naturally invited to learn. This lunar cycle, I am exploring the lessons of the mycelium, the ways we are interconnected and transformative. The consciousness of the mycelia invites me to let go of having to be the best at everything. The lessons of adaptability may be that if I stay within my essential self, rather than be what others tell me to be, I am contributing just what I need to contribute to the mysterious web of interdependency. If I am really good at thinking and you are really good at feeling, then how do we depend more on each other to transform decay into life? The Moon in Libra is all about relationship. Balance, another Libra concern, is more than static equilibrium. Balance requires sensitivity, adaptability, and trust. This trust is hard. Perhaps that is the lesson of this phase of the Moon. What is active and awakened trust? How is it different from staying asleep, hiding from the facts, staying passive when we need to act? What does active and awakened trust feel like in our bodies? What would the mycelium say?
Jupiter in Scorpio forms a trine to Neptune in Pisces. This is the second time these two giants of perception and emotion are feeding the field of awareness. (The first time was December 2017. The final time will be in August.) Blinders come off. We can believe we are mystery and we are powerful. This power isn’t personal. It is the way it is when we remember we are vast, interconnected and in touch with each other, just like mycelia spreading under forests to nourish the whole. The relationship between Mercury in Taurus and Pluto in Capricorn, today, reinforces power that is true to Earth wisdoms. The strength of the mycelium can be felt. This is the power of our discerning trust.> WORDS BY: STARSDANCE ASTROLOGY.COM
