Moon + Mercury

M O O N + M E R C U R Y

.

Today the Moon is conjunct Mercury, in Taurus, the sign of material comforts, nourishment, love and beauty, setting the conditions for our thoughts and communications to actually join with the Mother principle today, musing on all of the vital needs she provides for.

.

Deep in the core of ourselves, our Mother was our first love, our first model of how we are received, through which we learned how to receive. If this primary connection was nourishing, our being organizes it's various facets around this knowing, deeply anchored, that we are loved, we are received, and we proceed in life with a strong 2nd house foundation under us.

.

If this connection was hazardous, or absent, we spend our life trying to heal this Mother principle, looking for it's reflection in the faces of others, or soothing in indulgences, experiences and accumulations, to fill the dark space where no vital reflection seems to shine. Beaconless, we proceed from a dark, unsatisfied, tentative 2nd house awareness, trying to build houses of love and acceptance on an incomplete foundation.

.

Uranus is close to crossing the threshold into Taurus, so near this conjunction, inviting us to revolutionize and ultimately renovate our relationship to the Mother principle, if needed, by seeing the Mother in all of creation, in the Earth, in everyone.

.

To the Buddhists, there is no being more kind, more gentle, more cherished than the "mother-being" A healing meditation, when challenged to find what is loveable in others, we can imagine them as the Mother Being, allowing our heart to soften to them in compassion.

.

Let this tenderness turn to ourselves as well, loving the Mother Being that is inside of us all. May we never feel separated from the nourishment of love.
