The Willow Moon phase, which began April 25th, is the time to sit back, to relax, and to have faith in what you’ve worked so hard to build. It’s ultimately a time of cleansing, healing, and a new path forward.
If you’ve been struggling lately in life, whether to assert yourself or bring about change, chances are you’ll start to “let go” a little bit during Willow Moon. In the event that your outward efforts have been an attempt to avoid inner feelings, it might be the time to address them head on now. Releasing them will be cathartic — they’ve been depleting you!

All the stress and worry that you’ve been holding onto — perhaps heightened by trying to influence a situation that is beyond your control — can actually take the back seat now. Perhaps in all your haste to make things happen, you’ve been avoiding the feelings at your core. Whether grief, sadness, or the sense of a loss of control, they’ll continue to block you so long as they go unacknowledged.
So now, cleanse yourself! Literally and figuratively. Crystals help, and so will this Moontime Bath Soak ($28) to help ease yourself through your monthly transition (which includes PMS).
And if you can’t control it, why worry about it? Really, trying to control situations can be too much pressure anyway. Instead, focus on what you can work with; turn inward and indulge in self-care that heals, nourishes, and nurtures your inner child.
Instead of running, avoiding, or focusing outward, stay put and face what comes up for you. Willow Moon is a time for staying grounded in the earth, steadfast like the Taurean bull with which it’s associated, and deeply rooted in reason.

Of course, the moment you relax, the universe will deliver. Once these emotions have been addressed and cleared, blockages will cease to manifest. Whatever it is that you’ve been pursuing will elude you no more. From all your growth and learning, you’ll be able to “handle it” no questions asked.
By remaining steadfast in your goals, secure in your faith, and with trust in your own personal growth, you can take refuge in the impressive foundation you’ve built for yourself. You’ve come a long way, so give yourself a pat on the back! And trust. Have faith that the universe will deliver; your truest intentions manifest freely in life as you step into alignment with your inner truth.
