The New Moon is ten hours away as I write*- this is the Dark Moon in Taurus. Dark Moons are always fab for relinquishing whatever you don’t need, whether you’re clearing out a clutter magnet of a cupboard detoxing your email folders** or dropping a grudge.
But we’re talking about a Taurus Dark Moon here. If you’re Taurean or you’ve ever encountered a Taurus, you know their relationship with things is highly charged. That junk drawer could contain treasure so why are you plundering it? Their strange messages they store? A dossier. Who else but Taurus could chronicle the Zeitgeist from the layers of stata in their head/hidden folders?
And if you think an emotion cannot count as a possession, recalibrate. Sigmund Freud – the ‘father of psychoanalysis’ was a quadruple Taurus – Sun, Uranus, Pluto and Mercury. One of his core beliefs is that nothing is ever discarded. They hang out in your psychic basement, permanent influencers or, perhaps, saboteurs.
Whether you’re Taurus or you’re any sign during a Dark Moon in Taurus, you know it’s a good thing to let go but what if – say – your resentment might come in handy one day? Like an Allen key? It’s a struggle.
FYI: The alternative name for an Allen key is the Hex key and the etymology of “hex” has nothing to do with curses – it leads straight back to the Dutch ‘heks’ and from there to Hekate and Heka.
If you’re edgy with this Moon, like you know something has to shift but you’re not sure what it is, I am sending out the Daily Mystic early – soon – with a Clarity in 50 seconds exercise from Pythagoras. Yes, the mathematician/mystic.
And for the rest of this year, any Taurus, Leo, Scorpio or Aquarius Moon stirs up the Saturn-Uranus square. Congratulations if you’re hurtling around doing/being two paradigms that are technically incompatible – you’re not only au fait with the astro-trends, you’re formulating something fresh.
*Mega Mystic Members – I am uploading a little rave re this on the members page shortly.
**The only reason to keep merde-vibing messages is if you need them for legal purposes – otherwise they’re like a bad spell lurking in your phone or computer. Once you’ve established that you genuinely require these, print them out and put them in a protected (magically) box – metal is good, or a manilla folder with silver insulating material around it.
