A quiet moment amidst the storm

As the dust begins to settle upon the chaos that April has been, thus far, don’t be fooled into thinking the storm is over.

While the skies are quiet comparatively to what they’ve been, this is simply a chance to calm down, regroup and refocus. In times of war (real or metaphorical), in times of collective and personal change, there are moments of stillness. An eerie type of quiet. It would be easy to get comfortable again.

This isn’t to say there cannot be moments of exquisite joy, even in the depths of unimaginable pain. It’s the contrast of love and hate, joy and despair, war and peace that is the reality of humanity. There is a time for everything under the Sun.

Right now, the Sun is in Taurus, a time for calm. The Full Moon in Scorpio invites you to pierce through the layers and see a situation beyond what you think it looks like on the surface. If you are confused or uncertain and it’s held you back from taking action, you have the chance this week to say or do what needs to be said or done. The storm rages on until angels go where they fear to tread.
