Poem for the New Moon 2/16.

Who are you?  I asked the stars.

And they twinkled and burned and danced in fluttering patterns against the backdrop of darkness.

And so did I.

Who are you? I asked the clouds.

And they drifted and hung and swayed in lilting rhythms across the silvery sky.

And so did I.

Who are you?  I asked the rain.

And it fell with a heavy sigh in orchestrated unison collapsing to the earth in complete surrender.

And so did I.

Who are you?  I asked the sun.

And it blazed with glory and might, its powerful song arcing across the wide open curvature of the planet, in a single note.  And so did I.

Who are you?  I asked the moon.

And it radiated its beacon of glistening light in undulating waves embracing all of creation with a long slow exhale.

And so did I.

Who are you?  I asked myself.

And I melted into the earth and surrendered to the sky.

And the stars became my eyes;

And the clouds, my thoughts;

And the rain, my tears;

And the sun, my belly;

And the moon my, heart.

And so am I.

Today:  Intuitive Astrology

It’s the New Moon/Lunar New Year’s eve, and from every direction fathomable we are being called to integrate the knowledge and understanding we have within us. Shifting from a place of : “I Know”  to: “I am”. This requires integrating what you already know into true awareness and living it in every moment.  And being honest about this: knowing WHAT you know or don’t know.

This level of shift is not about acquiring anything new, per se, but rather choosing consciously to live and breathe and create from a place of your personal understanding.  Sometimes, as we look to acquire “new” skills, tools, services, outlets, options…. we are missing what we already have. This new moon with its partial solar eclipse alignment asks us to look deeply at what we already have, to accept it with open arms, to live it with the fullness of our beings and to stop searching for “whats next?  whats new?”  Let go of thinking you need more.  You already have all that you need.

Imagine yourself in a mirrored room.  Above, behind, below and all around you are mirrors.  What do these reflections show you? What do you see?  Don’t look just in front of you, notice everything.  See the richness and wholeness of your being. As you come into a place of deep noticing, you’ll come in to clarity. This clarity is vital as we shift into this Lunar New Year.  Where you ground yourself now will have rippling effects for a long time.

What methods or tools work best for you to gain clarity?  Perhaps you will write down this experience, your reflections, your noticing?  Perhaps you will paint or draw them?  Perhaps you will dance them?   A creative outlet can help you make sense of it all as you move into full body wisdom rather than isolated analytical understanding.

Then take a deep breath in, feel the lungs expand you and your body stretch in response,  and step in to the creation of your life as it is simply waiting for you……

Word of the Day:  Losar.  Losar means New Year (lo – year, sar – new) in Tibetan. It is the most important festival in the Tibetan calendar. The origins of Losar can be traced back to pre-Buddhist period and the Bon religion and was most likely celebrated to mark the winter solstice. To mark the beginning of the end of Winter, festivities included offering large quantities of incense to the local spirits and deities.  On Tibetan New Year’s Eve, the monks do a protector deities’ puja (ceremony) to drive out evil spirits. and begin preparations for the Losar celebrations.On the first day of the new year, people rise early and place water and offerings on their household altars to ensure a good harvest.

Energy Musings. Here. Now. 

Today!

The recent Full Moon/Eclipse unearthed some deep dark places both personally and collectively.  How have you been navigating this darkness?

The beauty of the full moon is its radiant light, so remember to bring in the light today, this week and as you continue to feel the ripples from the last lunar event (which you likely were feeling before the event as well!).  The timing couldn’t be more perfect, as it also “candlemas” today, and whatever your personal belief system, the call to light & bless candles is completely aligned with the energy of the moment.

Light your candles with intention and focus, not just a strike of the match.  Invision that light coming in to the dark places in YOU and with its luminosity, gently creating vision and awareness.  Keep conversation to a minimum today and over the next few days, as the volatile nature of what has been ‘unearthed’ lends itself to triggered places in others (and ourselves) so language is tricky right now.  Even the best intentioned wording can cause sudden harm. Practicing being silent is a form of deep listening and particularly beneficial right now.

Resist the urge to be loud, opinionated, passionate, boisterous, etc this weekend.  Remember:  timing is everything.  And the alignment through discernment to know when something is appropriate or not is key.

Silence.  Prayers. Candles. Stillness.  These are the things this day and weekend are calling for.  Find your own way to honor these needs.

Peace.

 

Word of the Day:   Coruscate is a verb that means to sparkle or give off reflected flashes of light. Think of the way the little mirrors on a disco ball coruscate as the ball twirls, making the dance floor sparkle.
