New Moon in Taurus
by Kathy Crabbe

Everythin's a changin' all the time. I've been putting painting FIRST with the help of my coach, Jen DeTracey and I feel like a kid again. Now if only my hair was still red (or brown hehehe). Below is the fruit of my labour (cats and other animals painted on rustic wood slices of oak and sugar bush turned into jewelry...more pix and videos here) plus a 4 card oracle spread so you can pick a card for the Taurus New Moon on May 4.

What feeds your soul?

Taurus New Moon Card REVEAL





Card 1: Guess poet

Mantra: I am present.
Affirmation: I dream the Divine in everything. The poet within wants to sing!
Element: Air

If this card appears in a reading It's time to go more deeply into your current journal practice by branching out into another form of writing such as poetry, creative writing, automatic writing, non dominant hand printing, dream analysis, drama, song writing, to name a few. Take some time to sit quietly and gather your thoughts and then simply plunge in and start writing. Time yourself or set a word limit such as writing one hundred words a day, no more or no less. Working with this kind of restrictive format can help you 'go with the flow' so look out for poetry appearing like magick without much effort at all.

In my own life I spent a few weeks writing one hundred words a day and poetry just flowed out of me. It was so easy.



Card 2: Seagull


Keyword: Freedom

Meaning: Be bold and daring in your approach.


Reversed: You are earthbound and not ready to move forward.

Affirmation: I am free.
Astrology: Cancer, Moon, Neptune, Pisces
Element: Water

Medicine: You embody the WIND, the AIR, our breath – pure and in the moment, free to BE.

Lore: She was in awe. Her ally, the Seagull, meant everything to her. He was freedom, joy, eternal flight, and to where, she didn't care.

I am free, you tell me over and over again until I hear your voice in my bones and I can fly – free, beautiful and loud!



Card 3: Crazee Janice dancing as fast as she can


Mantra: I ride the roller coaster.
Affirmation: I slow things down step-by-step.
Element: Spirit

If this card appears in a reading anything could happen! Things are going fast and so are you. Is it time to slow down yet? Can you manage it? Breathe...repeat. This too shall pass.

In my own life I have been on this sort of rollercoaster life ride before, especially during the early stages of menopause which also occurred during my astrological mid life transition. It's called Uranus Opposition and it occurs for all of us around the age of forty. It was a ride I could NOT seem to get off! Crazee indeed. But I survived and even though I knew it was going to happen all I could do was to hang on. Sorry, no great advice to offer you, other than to get ready!


Card 4: Kingfisher


Keyword: Awake
Meaning: You have a calling. What is it? Allow your inner compass to guide you to the answer.
Reversed: Noise and confusion disrupt your peace of mind.

Affirmation: I am cherished.
Astrology: Leo, Neptune, Pisces, Pluto, Saturn
Element: Earth, Fire, Water

Medicine: Your inventive ways invigorate and brighten our days.
Lore: She was fine, just fine, with all that was, will be, and is. With Kingfisher as her ally she could light up a room, and spark your heart 'til it glowed.

"Always and forever we will be friends," said this elf to her ally, the Kingfisher, for he brought her fish each day and she treated him to a rhyme and a prayer in return.
