Full Moon
Taurus

 

A Fiercely Beating Heart

Strength unmoved as dust swirls
around the stamping of hoof.
Fire rages in the heart and
coils of fevered breath move from
chamber of lung and throat,
weaving between air’s stagnant web.

I am earth, solid and great
in purpose and my strength
is held and guided by a heart that beats
fiercely to the rhythm of love.

I will stand my ground in
defense of the truths I perceive.
And,, if provoked will
charge with intent and
precise aim as I relentlessly
pursue the source of irritation.

Some would see me as impetuous
and easily stoked to irrational rage
And others would say I was immovable,
stagnant and set in my ways.

Both would be true
for my impetuosity comes
from being firmly grounded and
my grounding takes shape from
the flashes of inspiration I explore.

I am patient and I am persistent
as I move through life’s course.
And within my breast beats
a heart that holds the earth’s
wisdom and light deep within.

Yesterday the Moon waxed full in the astrological sign of Taurus- the Bull. Taurus represents the material world in all of its strength, abundance and stability. It is a fixed earth sign and just like the animal to which it is ascribed, this is earth that is potent and immovable. The Moon shone brilliantly and clear and served as reminder of the fullness of what we consider ours to claim in the mundane world. It also called those emotions that are our foundational and rock-steady reserves to rally in supporting and bolstering the work that is at hand. I used the fullness of this moon to dedicate one of four crystal spheres that are to be aligned with the quarters for a special ritual. And, as the moonlight streamed down into the very core of the crystal orb I could see the foundation of earth spread before me enlivened and lit by the Moon Mother herself.

Blessings of strength!
