Dark Moon in Taurus
Posted by Tree of Life on May 14th 2023
The Dark of the Moon is the time from the last visible waning crescent, to the first visible crescent of the New Moon.
The Dark of the Moon is sacred to the Goddess in Her aspect as the Crone- She who is the Wisdom Keeper, The Seer, The Grandmother, The Healer. She invites us to look within ourselves with Honesty and Compassion, and work with our Shadows: anything from overcoming addiction or healing past traumas.
Embracing the Dark Moon energy in Taurus invites us to explore our attachments, possessiveness, and patterns of resistance to change. It encourages us to confront our fears around scarcity and cultivate a sense of security within ourselves.

The New Moon begins at the first visible waxing crescent.

She invites us to dance and play; to test ourselves, to challenge our limitations, and discover our potential. The New Moon is a time of Initiations and of new beginnings. It's a good time to set intention, begin new projects, and to plant the seeds of that which we want to nurture in our lives.
