Warm sunshine and May flowers, this is a time of flourishing, renewal and new birth, all under a New Moon in Taurus. What better timing and synchronization could there be to celebrate the wondrous beauty of the universe, the perfection of all things and god within you? While astrologically we understand that Taureans are the great appreciators of beauty, on a higher level it is up to every individual to manifest beauty within and to master the self.
The royal couple of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have certainly chosen the perfect time to tie the knot. We naturally look forward to a fresh start and happy times at this time of year. Even Mother Nature, despite seemingly adverse conditions, bursts forth. Come what may, trees make their royal display in Spring. It is hardly surprising that trees are recognized around the globe as symbols of inspiration, growth and faith. Like us, their deep roots, upward reach and utilization of the four elements (earth, fire, water and air) provide a means for the immortality of the trees to remain in their seed. In the Bible, Jesus cursed the fig tree when it did not bear fruit. What are we creating with our gifts and talents? We too can reach out to all life forms too, giving shelter, life and beauty to others.
Kabbalah mysticism flowered in 13th century Spain with the writings of the Zohar (a commentary on the Torah) concerning the understanding of the divine world and how we relate thereto from a human perspective. While we may not comprehend the Ein Sof (the Infinite) we can always follow spiritual teachings so that we may enjoy an experiential connection with God. The Kabbalistic Tree and its patterning exist within the self as well as within the universe and like astrology, provide an expansive pathway for the realization of Self. As we understand more, we can accept more and the more beauty we can appreciate and become. We can walk in beauty both internally and externally.
I recently came across a beautiful song written from a tree’s perspective. There is a link to it below. It is a song that I would have loved to hear Teri Merliss sing. The words are wonderful.
Love and Blessings,
