During a New Moon in Taurus we are being asked to really firmly connected with Earth, with our roots, and the sources of sustenance in our lives. Taurus energy is very luxurious and beautiful while at the very some time practical, realistic, loyal and patient when in balance. The key word to fully harnessing the energy of the Taurus New Moon being PATIENCE. The shadow side to Taurus energy can be stubbornness or blindness so to curb this we practice patience, presence, and grounding rituals to remember our greatest support system: Mother Earth. The element that rules this sign is Earth and the plant is Venus - the ultimate maiden and Goddess always reminding us to approach all that we do with love and respect. When we take the time to love and respect ourselves and our planet we are planting a seed of how we promise to love and respect others. All of our relationships ripple out from this most primal relationship we have with source, the planet, the very thing that gives us breath, food, water, and of course... crystals! This ritual is designed to remind you of this gratitude and through it find your flourish. Let your gratitude blossom because the more grateful we are for all that we already have the more the Universe will provide. Gratitude always create more and more abundance! Let it grow, let it flow!
Your Tree Agate Crystal
Your Succulent and a connection to Earth (soil, roots, more plants, indoor or outdoor)
A spoon or small shovel, and maybe gloves if you don’t dirt too much :)
Your Love by Luna Crystal Infused Mystic Mani Nail Polish
A place to lay or sit comfortably (if you are outdoors, try laying flat on your back in a bed of grass so you can really connect with the Earth)
If you haven’t already potted your succulent, do so today!
Take your spoon or small shovel and make a little hole in the soil, being careful not to damage the roots of the succulent by going in on a diagonal. Succulents tend to have low lying roots so the deeper you dig, the safer your roots will be.
Hold your Tree Agate in between your hands right at your heartspace or lay down and place on your heart.
Tree Agate is a Root Chakra stone but it also connects to the heart, which is your space of intention. So, with it there, send an intention for the this New Moon into your crystal.
Close your eyes. Relax your face, your jaw, your breath.
Visualize the intention as if it was playing out in real time.
See this visualization moving from your head, to your heart, and into the crystal.
Whenever you feel it is fully charged with your energy and carrying all the information you intended, place the stone in the small hole you have created under your succulent.
Imagine this plant and your Tree Agate are representative of your figurative roots. It is up to you to keep tending to them regularly. Succulents require minimal but regular care so be certain to not over do it because you can easily drown it. At the same time, check in regularly by placing your finger an inch deep into the soil. If it is dry an inch down, give some water to your roots and keep coming back. This ritual continues as long as your plant is alive! And if you see it drowning or flaking dry, don’t be hard on yourself! Succulents, just like you, are resilient creatures. Notice what it needs more or less of and start doing that. You can’t exactly kill it, succulents always find a way of coming back!
Once this process is complete and you feel your crystal and succulent are happy together, clean your hands and feet thoroughly.
Tend to your literal roots and give yourself a crystal infused manicure and pedicure just like a luxurious Taurus would!
Now that you have tended to your figurative and literal roots, make this a commitment to yourself to keep taking care of your foundation. Without a healthy root system, nothing can grow. Remember that root care not a one stop shop... it’s a daily, lifelong practice. And you don’t have to do this exact ritual everyday to remind yourself of the importance of foundation, it can be much simpler. Ask yourself… ‘What is one small thing I can do everyday to tend to my roots and keep growing?’ When we grow, we glow, from the foundation up, from the inside out. When we practice this sustainably, our growth can be infinite and our abundance immeasurable. Truly, the sky’s the limit when your roots are strong and stable! Soak up this New Moon Blessings and go forward into the rest of this Lunar Cycle fulfilling this little promise you have made to yourself. By the end of the month it will become a habit you can carry with you all life long, and beautiful one at that!
