On This Flowery Moon – New Moon April 2020

This is a New Moon that comes with some big energy. Being in the powerful sign of earthly Taurus – it’s the perfect time to reconnect to the earth. The flower essence healing on offer aligns perfectly so we can maintain a sense of inner harmony.

The one thing I’ve found extremely challenging over the past weeks is this sense of disconnection and unease. It’s made everyone uncomfortable. This insatiable need to stay connected has been paramount for many.

I for one have been drawn to connect deeply within. Many have.

There’s a definitive necessity to change.

Here in Perth, Western Australia we are officially in Autumn which is the natural transition cycle. One foot is still in the old and the new is revealing itself.

This feels very much like a soul renewal as much as a soulful purge so many are experiencing. How things will look at the end is anyone’s guess. I do believe we all have a personal responsibility at the moment. To ourselves especially. Rippling into all areas of our life.

It’s time to embrace. Ourselves and each other. Deep within, our purpose for life is realigning with a new reality.

I’m sure I’m not the only one feeling this way. Many are aligning with deep inner changes that began long ago. Letting go of an old identity and acknowledging themselves in ways not felt before.

When we look to nature there’s a power that cannot be contained. And whilst being forced to stay inside, parts of us cannot be contained either. We can dream and we can visualize. Our imagination and the attitudes we carry can certainly not be tamed. Nor would we want them to be.

As the cards fall as they may we can take stock and make plans to create something better.

For some, they may be grieving an identity, a purpose, and a person. Honour this process and not be in too much of a rush to move forward. There’s a natural cycle to everything no matter where you find yourself.

One thing Covid has taught me is that time is on our side.

The plant wisdom on offer this moon indicates this is a period of acknowledgment. Allowing certain cycles to play out in their own way. To observe, dig deep into our own sense of faith and trust.

Flower Essence Healing

The flower essence resonating through this New Moon in Taurus is the White Spider Orchid.

White Spider Orchid opens us to empathy. It allows the respect for another’s journey to be what it is and not take on their pain or suffering.  We all have a part to play in this experience. And it’s in this experience we will find and connect deeper to ourselves more so than ever before.

White Spider Orchid acts as a bridge to relieve suffering and not be suffocated by the pain and suffering of others. Necessary to acknowledge but not coat ourselves in the trauma and anguish of the collective.

There is much to learn.

This lunation has aspects to Uranus and Saturn – anything is on the cards. Good or bad. And it’s because of this White Spider Orchid can help you access inner wisdom or breakthrough that aligns you to a higher purpose or understanding of the purpose of our suffering. Where this leads to and how it empowers us.

Now’s the Time to be Taking Time

Slow downing has its benefits. Helping to access our body’s wisdom. A connection that is very much part of the process. If you stop to listen, feel within and even ask. It carries the answers you seek.

The nature of Covid has shown us how interconnected we all are. What I do can affect so many. We all have a personal responsibility. To ourselves. And each other.

New foundations are due. It may take some time as the old is sifted away.

Through this New Moon, there may be something revealed you don’t like. Or something comes out of the blue you were not expecting. There’s room to shift and change over the next coming months as both heavyweights Pluto, Saturn and Jupiter settle into their backward spin.

Venus too which makes things seemingly unclear. Things are not what they seem.

Retrograding Planets

Pluto retrogrades mid-May. It’ll be a time to reflect on everything that’s happened over the last few months. And there’s a whole heap to reflect on.

Rely on your inner guidance. Your gut instinct will lead you to sources of inner nourishment you didn’t know you had. And if you’re lucky, you’ll come to the root cause of things if you need to.

And if you need help in this area – I offer an online report that can do just that. It’s a Root cause chart that can get to the core of any issue. You can read about it here.

So many are moving through different levels of grief. Stress and pressure. Some are deeply suffering– having lost loved ones or afraid of losing loved ones. Some have no job, nor business and hence have lost a sense of purpose. 

For others, business and life have never been better. Many who couldn’t sleep are getting the best night’s rest in years. Time spent with family has deepened their bond.

Remembering despite where in the spectrum of life you sit. We’re still having to take personal responsibility for what we do to help ourselves and each other.

Personal Responsibility

And our power resides in taking on this personal responsibility. For how we feel, see, sense, and know. Awakening a more in-depth understanding—nourishing something deeper.

You may find this especially challenging if you can’t leave the house. Or gain 5 mins to yourself because the house is full of people. Working and schooling from home with everyone in your face. Financial pressures are leaving you in a cold sweat, there is support.

Fear breeds from the element of the unknown. Information and action can help alleviate and encourage personal safety. All you need do is ask.

We always have the power to align with what you want more than what you don’t. These are the freedoms we carry. And we forget this sometimes. We’re more powerful than we realize. And this is in any given moment and any given situation.

‘Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms — to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way” Man’s Search for Meaning – Viktor Frankl.

The New Moon 10.32 am Thursday, April 23rd

The New Moon in Taurus. The sign of value, nature, the earth, resources, beauty, and love. Ruled by Venus – who is now in her retrograde shadow phase. We’re all moving into a new way of relationship. To ourselves and each other.

This transit is in full swing on May 13th up until then we may get a sense of revisiting past issues in dynamics. Triggers are our cue to go within.

Relationships may mirror us. We may be so sure of what we know and understand. And yet we are not seeing clearly. Giving and receiving may not be in the forefront of people’s minds. Make sure you can look after you.

Temptations may come. The Venus retrograde is a test. It’s an intense transit. It’s even referenced in the bible as the 40 days and night sojourn Jesus made into the desert. There is an inner resolve to embody and imbed. Stay light and draw on your own inner resources.

How interesting that this should arise for us at this time.

Empowerment on Offer

it’s not necessarily a time for the new – but to revisit the old. You may see all those petty things that annoy you about a partner, friend or colleague and vice versa. This is the purpose of this transit. Asking can you really live, work and be with this person? What do you want? And when all is said an done – come July if the answer is still no – this will be the time to make necessary outwardly changes.

This energy underpins so much at this time. And as the other planets are in go slow revisiting old issues and making good on changing inner patterns or mindsets will prove highly beneficial.

It’ll be easy to feel a sense of loneliness or rejection. Possibly triggering a cascading pattern. Observe this pattern. For example – something happens, and you feel a deep trigger of rejection in a relationship. This rejection leads to self-doubt. And self-doubt can lead to inertia. Inertia can lead to complacency and from there, anything you planned to work on or through goes out the window because this innate feeling of rejection overwhelms and sticks to everything else. The root cause still waiting to be dealt with. Hence the inner work on offer through this transit.

There are so many tools and strategies to move through these inner triggers.

Being fully seen and understood by another human being without judgment or bias is both our greatest need and the thing that is most missing from our daily life. Especially now in this era. More than ever.

This is why I’m offering a new mentoring program called Healing Conversations with TracyYou can check it out here. This new mentoring program draws on all my skills, talents and abilities to help map a healing pathway through this time.

We’re in a new phase of living and being.

2020 is asking us to go deeper in ways we’ve never done. Trusting in ways, we’ve never done.

The empowerment comes not from listening to external voices, yet in our inner voice. It’s not about finding validation externally. Yet from validating yourself and communicating in a way that you can know your own heart.

New Energy in Play

Uranus is sitting right on top of this moon. Breakthroughs are imminent. A time to be authentic and honest with your feelings. And in who you are. Obligations may need to take a back seat.

With Saturn in the mix and hanging around somewhere as it has for eons in Capricorn. Being in the responsible and disciplinarian part of the cosmos – there’s a lesson to be realized.

Either way, back yourself.

Being independent through these deep transits empowers.  This doesn’t mean emotionally isolating yourself. It means being honest and observing the external prompts or triggers rather than reacting to them. It could be wrong. It could be right. Being the observer is an example of a zen prompt I speak of.

Empowerment is always on the cards. We choose. And when nerves are already feeling fried. Self-care is paramount now.

Healing On Offer

Healing comes from being real, keeping it real and staying grounded in a time that is far from it. Regenerating our systems.

If you feel the need to make a change and feel blocked in every turn. The call is to have patience. Trust in the process. Channel the energy in ways that are supporting you not detrimental to your wellbeing or soul.

Life is best lived in the now.

Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced. James Baldwin

We’re in a marathon of and for change. Face what you can. Take space when you can. Find empowerment in the moment. And know we’re in for the ride of a lifetime.

Until next time

Much flowery love
