Tara ~ Medicine Moon ✿◕‿◕✿ 21st - 22nd May _/\_
Spirit Sun now shifts the celestial spotlight away from the steady Bull, to focus upon free-flowing, intellectual Gemini. This move into the sign of the twins helps shape the mind and thoughts by encouraging a vivid imagination and the power to visualize, rousing a certain curiosity to communicate and analyze personal needs, set against a background of communal issues, both of which may seem all-consuming.
Whether wanting to save oneself - or the world – forgiveness could be called for now, and again towards the end of May, when raising Bodhicitta and generating compassion is at the heart of self-development. This intense pressure for personal changes within collective transformation shows little sign of letting up throughout this zodiacal month, because dynamic Mars once again activates the Cardinal Cross of Central Spiritual Sun. Thankfully the scarlet the planet of action, Mars, has now put on the breaks after four and half months of retrograde motion in Libra, sign of balance and harmony, and is now going forward. Though certain (relationship) issues may have experienced a bumpy turn around these past few days, a direct Mars is now moving to encounter Goddesses Vesta & Ceres, suggesting there’s merit in nurturing a sacred sexuality, especially if one is to cultivate harmonious personal relations. This leads me to reiterate now how the waning phase of a Moon cycle is specifically attributed to the Divine Feminine in Tibetan astrology.
With Goddess Tara presiding over this last quarter 21st-22nd May, it is the intuitive feminine wisdom (which we all have) that provides the courage and strength to free us from fear and anxiety. Also during this latter part of our current lunar cycle the Sun is conjunct the healing asteroid Goddess Hygeia, plus the deeply sensitive Pisces Moon is conjunct compassionate Neptune. Thus ‘The Lights’ now emphasize healing through tolerance and kindness as ways to wind-down this lunation and, at the same time, prepare to begin clearing obstacles that might obscure the month of SakaDawa, when Himalayan Buddhist celebrate Buddha’s birth, enlightenment and paranirvana, which begins just after the new Moon, May 29th.
