In Praise of Earth

Soil, Root and Fern

Let us remember within us
The ancient clay,
Holding the memory of seasons,
The passion of the wind,
The fluency of water,
The warmth of fire,
The quiver-touch of the sun
And shadowed sureness of the moon.
That we may awaken,
To live to the full
The dream of the Earth
Who chose us to emerge
And incarnate its hidden night
In mind, spirit, and light.

Taurus Moon and Uranus

‪This new moon in earthy Taurus is amplified by Uranus
moving into Taurus as well.‬

‪A big shift has begun.
It’s about honoring and valuing
the feminine within ourselves and our Earth. ‬

‪Great time to connect with Body and Earth
from a space of love.‬

‘It was such a pleasure to sink one’s hands into the warm earth, to feel at one’s fingertips the possibilities of the new season.’

Can Dirt Save the Earth?

“… More than one-third of earth’s ice-free surface is devoted to agriculture, meaning that much of it is already managed intensively. Carbon farming’s fundamental conceit is that if we change how we treat this land, we could turn huge areas of the earth’s surface into a carbon sponge. Instead of relying solely on technology to remove greenhouse gases from the air, we could harness an ancient and natural process, photosynthesis, to pump carbon into what’s called the pedosphere, the thin skin of living soil at the earth’s surface. If adopted widely enough, such practices could, in theory, begin to remove billions of tons of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, nudging us toward a less perilous climate trajectory than our current one…”

The Wisdom of Wave and Stone

“If there is any wisdom running through my life now,
in my walking on this earth,

it came from listening in the Great Silence
to the stones, trees, space, the wild animals,
to the pulse of all life as my heartbeat.”

~Vijali Hamilton

Earth Priestess Full Moon

Mother Moon

An earthy full Moon in Virgo, the sign of the priestess is happening now.  In ancient times, Virgo priestesses served the Earth, by leading rituals and ceremonies to honor the seasons and cycles of life on Earth.

This Virgo Moon helps bring the expansive energy of a dreamy Pisces Sun back down to Earth. Yes, we must step outside ordinary reality and dream big in order to transform our world. But the devil is in the details. Now it is time to begin turning our dreams into grounded action.  Time to dot the i’s and cross the t’s on our big dreamy plans for the future. Meditate and call on the energies of this Virgo moon to guide you and help you.
