21 Apr New moon in Taurus: moon milk with functional mushrooms
How can a moon milk elixir with mushrooms help strengthen your intentions for this upcoming new moon in Taurus? As with every new moon, it is always a great time to set your new intentions or to make the ones that you already anchored in even stronger.
While these times may feel a little chaotic, you are being summoned to focus on what you wish to invite into your life and to think about the seeds you desire to plant for your future.
Reishi and the new moon
New moon in Taurus encourages us to get our lives into shape. Are we nourishing ourselves (and boosting our immune systems) with fresh, healthy food and herbs?
With the energy of the new moon, it is the perfect time to start new and wholesome routines and to begin living in the present moment truly. That is also where moon milk, purpose, and meditation can be of great assistance. The power of existing in the present moment, having a clear intention, and making a connection with the universe, is one of the most powerful things you can do, to shape your life the way you want. That is why we chose our beloved Reishi mushrooms for this moon milk, because of its connection to the cosmos and the calming effect it has on the mind.
Reishi mushrooms have been held sacred by Taoist monks, spiritual masters, and practitioners of oriental medicine for thousands of years for its ability to speed up our process in spiritual attunement. The perfect mushrooms for a new moon intention if you ask us!
Letting go, to go with the flow
This new moon will also identify your fears. Expose them, allow yourself to hear them. Write them down, so they can seep out of your mind and be brought into the light. You may notice that once your mind is more clear, that they no longer hoover over you anymore.
Also, know that Taurus Season is asking us to remember that the most beautiful things in life can happen when we let go of control. It’s ok to let go because in the unknown is where we often find new versions of ourselves, and where intentions can come to fruition.
