On a porch in Iceland… Last night me and Alex, Meghan’s friend, drove the crowd downtown to Reykjavik where we hung out at Kaldi all night until it closed. I was okay with driving because I had Sigurgisli (Bjarki’s brother) as a guide…plus I’m beginning to not like drinking at night (daytime drinking is way more fun) so I wasn’t opposed to being a DD. After Kaldi’s we went to a hot dog stand and a waffle hut and that’s when I noticed the moon in the sky…that pretty half moon last quarter lovely.
Today…is another story. Somehow I got wrangled into driving today WITHOUT a local…and let’s just say things did not go well! Haha. I went down roads the wrong way and the road signs made no sense…I was THAT tourist…the one that can’t drive. I was not happy with the situation. I gave up and Bjarki came to find us…and I let my brother drive the others to the Blue Lagoon…while forfeiting that experience to sulk in my room. Besides, I needed some time alone. I’m not great with big crowds. So I took a walk to some stores nearby and ate lunch with my older sister…got me some wine…and now here I am…writing…journaling…and drinking my wine. Daytime drinking…my kind of chill.
Now on with the moon...the moon is within its last quarter moon phase and it happens to be sitting in Taurus. The last quarter moon phase should be a time to reflect and be thankful for completing your new moon goal…or checking in with yourself as you move along with your goals. With Taurus in the mix, you may seek to encompass the Taurus’s nature of being the silent one. (Yes please!) I need a little peace and quite. You may think…Taurus, the bull??? Because we associate a bull with being very aggressive we forget that in actuality Taurus is an Earth sign…and really the bull is just an animal who hangs out on earth…minding his own business (unless you piss him off). Taurus is about being the silent one, the peaceful one, the one who sits in a field of grass and absorbs mother natures beauty. Think about that when you sit and reflect on your completion of your new moon goal, or checking in with yourself as you move along on your journey!
For my new moon goal...I wanted to write my first draft of my personal manifesto…and it goes something like this…
“I am me. I am the sea. And no one owns me. I want to listen to my heart and answer to life’s calls. I am free. I am a free thinker. I want love. I am love. I want to live my life by my own standards. I am creative and I welcome abundance into my life. I want to do yoga everyday and write everyday (or at least take a photograph). I want to blog everyday. But most importantly, I want to transcend into the woman I was meant to be.”
Love & Moonlight,
