dark moon recommendation

NEW MOON IN TAURUS
MAY 4TH @ 6:45PM EST | 14 DEGREES

this month’s dark moon recommendation is to lather yourself in affirmations like honey. whether you read them, write them, speak them, art them, dance them, kiss them, sing them, or just be them— it don’t matter. if it’s sweet like honey, if it’s lush like love, if it’s sure like the sunrise, luxuriate in it.

tell yourself things like: I have a good relationship with money. not making enough doesn’t mean I don’t deserve more. spending doesn’t mean I don’t deserve more. not having savings doesn’t mean I don’t deserve more. it means I need more! I love money as a resource & it loves me back. it always comes when I need it. it’s okay for me to receive money with ease. it’s okay for me to make money with pleasure. it’s okay for me to use money for ease & pleasure.

write out spells like: I create new life just by being myself. I never need to alter my love for anyone. I choose integrity as an investment into a future I want. I know what is important to me & share that with others. I am open to radical love, vulnerability, & trust. I am learning to love myself unconditionally. I am ready to thrive.

speak magic into the things you want to grow. speak tenderness into the places still sore. speak strength into the fragile seedlings. speak bravery into the fear. create beauty from the mess, from the residue, from what’s around you. create temporal experiences of pleasure to remind you how temporary all of this is. dance as long as you can, dance when it hurts, dance until the sun is almost risen & you remember what it is to start over. kiss slowly, kiss softly, kiss longer than you have before. sing your freedom out loud, sing your revelations, sing your joy. be everything you already are with fierce presence, because that waters everything you are becoming.

the dark Moon is in scorpio with Mercury, ambassador of the underworld, & Venus the Producer of Pleasure. your most important contribution to relationships & the collective right now (and always) may be your integrity. the more you cultivate intentionality & listen to your intuitive directives, the less you have to do damage control or micro-manage other peoples responses because your impact is messy.

this isn’t about binaries & linearity or perfection-fuck that. the question is: what upward spirals (growth) are you interested in? remember, you don’t have to perform any energy to be present to this. you can be like honey. slow, sweet, & present. growth is tender, feels so vulnerable. you might be tired of hearing that word but it’s time, starling. time to be accountable to where & how you want to grow. because vulnerability without accountability is projection, manipulation, or damage control. and that paradigm is dying—swiftly.

“In order to rise from its own ashes, a Phoenix first must burn.”—Octavia Butler


upward spirals don’t happen in your resistance to transformation. they don’t happen when you dig your roots into “the way things are” or “the way I am”. when unhealed/unconscious shit comes to your attention, it is not a question of “do you want [fill in the blank] badly enough?”, it’s an invitation to honor the opportunities for deliverance. your shame, fear, & pain don’t have to be here to stay. it’s easy to be consumed by the deep betrayals or your self or by other people. you don’t have to stay there, either. say yes yes yes to the antidote, to what you’ve been terrified of: telling the truth, tolerating no shit, & taking up space.

don’t stay in “fuck it, fuck them, fuck you, fuck me” (unless it’s sexual, then please do your thing). admit those feelings of FUCK & know that it is the moment you can choose to transform. you want the magnificent blessings & abundance the next six months can bring? you wanna ride the sagittarian centaur into your sovereignty? remember that this year cleared a bunch of shit out the way. breathe into that space. then do your conjuring to minister to your wounds-not all of them, just the ones that are in the way. stay on your path of recovery & retrieval. be done with distractions (as many times as you need to decide you’re done) from people who can’t see in the dark or want to stay burning. let yourself dissolve into ashes because you’re devoted to rebirth, dedicated to rising. you don’t need to be ashamed of your eagerness to evolve- it’s your luminosity.

”It’s increasingly difficult for me to vibe with people—even keen, talented people—who are salty about everything all the time. Gotta have some sweetness in this life. I believe in the intelligence of honey.”@theferocity. in reply: "I found that these ppl are often not as “involved” in the business of curing these things which make them salty as they claim. The real warriors are actually dripping in honey.”—@HappySingleGal
