The Oracle of Aotearoa Speaks
“In the realm of taha tinana the body is a sacred temple
Whatever form it takes whether large, small, strong or gentle.
See the sanctity of life in beings of every kind
All is a sacred manifestation of divine mind
Take care your foundations do not crumble through neglect or greed,
Develop your connection to the Earth and know what you really need.
Practicing self-care and the wise use of energy
Honouring the Earth and the realm of physicality.”
– Franchelle Ofsoské-Wyber
Focus on the essentials
This is the beginning of a new cycle, the tides of power are concentrated and a deep connection to the element of earth with its stabilising, grounding energies can be felt strongly. This is a time of connecting with the physical realm and developing an awareness of the practicalities and practical needs in your life. Be clear about what it is you wish to initiate or make manifest in your life so that you can make the necessary plans and act accordingly on them. The wise use of your energies at this time will ensure positive outcomes and greater stability as you make each sure step on the pathway ahead.
Honouring the physical realm
Taha tinana which corresponds to physicality and being in the physical world, is one of the eight tentacles of Te Wheke, the octopus of infinite wisdom. The physical realm is one of the eight dimensions of the holistic self and was considered by the ancients to be a vital element of wellbeing and holistic care. Celebrate and strengthen the physical connection you have with life and the world around you this week. Spend time attending to your own physical body or the physical spaces around you in order to honour this realm and care for this aspect of your holistic self. Your own projects and plans will benefit from this shift in awareness and by viewing them from a more ‘down to earth’ perspective. Look at them from a more practical perspective and realistic assessment of what needs to happen in a given time frame. Take care of the necessities and you will lay the ground work for success ahead.

Fertile Taurus energy
The well-grounded energies of the zodiacal sign Taurus bring a strong and earthy feel to this week. With the Sun in the zodiacal sign of Taurus and the recent New Moon in Taurus, the energies are fertile for laying down the ground work with your new plans and intentions.
This week is an invitation to be practical and focused on your goals as well as being in touch with the resources you have access to and available for use. With the revolutionary planet Uranus in Taurus there is the potential for your new fledgling plans to push the boundaries and open up areas of exciting new growth. A practical way forward does not have to be limited by pre-conceived notions or fixed mindsets, instead push ahead steadily and be open to new ways of doing things.
Mercury, the planet of the mind and communications enters Taurus on Tuesday 7th May helping you to be more thorough and deliberate in your actions. Take the time to think about things more clearly and methodically if required. There is much value in bringing a sense of consistency to your efforts and knowing you have all you need to achieve what you have set out to do.
Re-connecting with the Goddess
The zodiacal sign Taurus is associated with the energies of the Goddess, abundance and the beauty found in nature. It encourages you to dig deeper to these same natural forces within you and discover your true value and worth. Working with the Goddess Isis-Urania is a powerful way to restore the connection to your rich inner self – the deepest most powerful aspect that is the primal feminine. The Eighth Ray Isis-Urania Chalice Ritual© is perfect to use during this week’s tides of power to help restore the feminine to her rightful place in your world and the world around you.
