Last week under the new moon, I was walking home late along the rail road tracks.
The snow had made the path bright among the dark old stalks of plants that use to fill the vacant lot. As I walked something caught me by surprise.
The full moon is blazing tonight. The inner currents are riding high, and you may not be able to sleep. What’s your anthem? Mantra? Soundtrack? What’s on repeat in your head? What inspires you to resurrect from the shadows of the past Scorpio shedding? What pushes you to get out of bed ?What beats the cold? How do you wanna get out of the funk? We all feel stuck in the sand glass of time, but we are all Survivors.
You don’t have to travel far externally to experience the mystical, but you do have to go within. This Scorpio new moon shifts us toward the real currents of our lives. We don’t often choose to invoke the darkness, but when we face our fears we end up reclaiming the magic. I invite you to turn towards your lifelong fears, faults, and failures. You may just find those demons are actually beautiful dragons who want to take you to the tops of the mountains to reach up higher.
Social Media is like the Sun in Scorpio pushing us into the wilds of our emotional landscape. While the Taurus energy is asking us to look for the beauty and value in these platforms we’ve created. Finally Uranus is giving us power change what isn’t working, and create something of true value.
Ask yourself where does your true value come from?
I don’t think we ever find our soul mate till we are ready to see our own soul. The clearer I see myself, the easier it is to connect with others, to see their beauty beyond the illusions. This new moon in Libra offers us a chance to linger in time and space, to tend to our deeper soul yearnings and ask: WHAT DO I TRULY WANT? AM I WILLING TO GIVE IT IN THIS RELATIONSHIP?
How is it each time I look up in the sky after a ritual you are there? Seems you heard me talking about you. You are my anchor, pulling me forward with your phases. Sometimes I think I can’t do it, discouraged and exhausted from the insecurities and pressure that eventually surface. I look up to you because everyday you shift 10 degrees deeper into the shadows or brighter with light, a reminder of life’s inherent flux. Yet, rarely do I get to see you beyond your shifting face.
This Virgo new moon is about setting intentions regarding our daily habits. The daily grind, how do we make our workload smoother so we aren’t getting ground to a pulp? How do we clean up our relationships and get closer, so we can leave out the expectations and add more affection? How do we add 5% percent more love to ourselves each day? How can we do what needs to be done so that we can live everyday artfully?
Today, try chewing on some Bubblicious and see how long you last blowing bubbles when the flavour runs out. In kundalini yoga, we learn how to sustain the effort despite the often extreme discomfort. Apply this resilience to life, when it’s hard, sticky, ugly, know that just as the moon waxes and wanes, so does all the bullshit.
This new moon is about taking up centerstage - #doyou - which means DO something that comes from within. DO something weird, awkward, different, but then don’t post it, keep it for yourself. Florence is a different person on-stage, she goes from introverted to a preacher. Surprise yourself, take stage if you are often behind the scenes, and hold back if you are an extraverted hottie.
Take care during this time of uncertainty. In the eclipse darkness, the unconscious will surface to upgrade your frequency and evolve your capacity. This soul adjustment aligns with the water barer of Aquarius offering the ability to let go of the past and nourish a collective vision of individual equality.
