10/14/15 The last day of new moon energy this cycle and #Sedna emerged from #susanseddonboulet ‘s Goddesses Deck. A new moon Goddess, perhaps more of the dark moon—with all the Jung shadow work I’ve been intrigued by lately, synchronistic that she would appear. A tragic story of patriarchal betrayal symbolic of the places within ourselves that we most fear. What shadows can you integrate today? #padmes #goddesses #tarot
This month’s energies are asking you to look at what you’re celebrating and, more deeply, why? What experiences have you taken wisdom from that have brought you joy and what of this will you use for the future or planning of the future?
I must say, I’m celebrating the magic of life. Chris and I were in what the police call an animal collision on the new moon eclipse. We had just come from a wonderful day trip to Leadville to take engagement photos for our family. We stopped at a restaurant before we headed back down in the dark.
We were going very fast, and the highway was full of traffic surrounding us. We were in one of the middle lanes of a 4-lane highway. There was no time to swerve, and that was probably a good thing in hindsight. There was highway in front of us and then there was a giant elk face and body and antlers and then there was slow motion. The impact seemed big, but nothing seemed real at that point.
The airbags were instant, there was powder in the air, we couldn’t see anything, glass everywhere, the whole windshield was concave. There was a perfect circle in the windshield by Chris where an antler had made it’s way straight through. I can barely think about how close it was from Chris. It missed him.
When we pulled ourselves together the first thing Chris said was, “This is so sad.” It was sad. The huge elk wasn’t found by the police who looked to make sure he was off of the road. He wasn’t on either side of the highway when they searched.
We were ok. Chris drove blindly to the side of the road until we hit the side rail because we couldn’t see out of the front windshield. No one hit us while doing this, which is also amazing. The police said they couldn’t believe we were walking away from this, or that the collision didn’t cause a pile up in all that traffic. Two people stopped to see if we needed help before the police got there.
Our insurance company wanted to get all the details. It was difficult to hear them on the phone with all the traffic racing by. Chris and I went back and forth on the phone and talking to the police. Finally got the tow truck. Got home. We were safe.
It’s hard to not get comfortable with the normalcy of life around you.
We forget that we’re precious and temporary and that everything is. The wisdom I’m taking for the planning of future is about going after what I’ve been dreaming about. No time like the present. You never know when you’re going to be catapulted into another dimension! Stop postponing! Dive Deep and do it now. Love with your whole heart.
Thank you for another beautiful night, Goddesses!
This month’s energy is asking us to acknowledge and connect with what empowers our Truth-Self—light side and Shadow side. It calls us to make peace with our inner selves. Self-healing, brings that peace inward to you, and then to the world.
What have you done for yourself this month, or what are you thinking of doing for yourself this month that empowers you? What is a shadow part of yourself that you’re going to make friends with, work on healing, or accepting?
I have been very much conjuring interactions lately that touch on victim energy I’ve had from childhood. Instead of shunning her, I’m embracing her. I asked her, what the hell is up with all of this? But more so, what the hell do you need to heal?
The answer was: I need to feel like I’m empowered. In order to feel empowered, I need to be in my zone. It’s the part of myself that forgets there are others around me who judge, or tell me what I’m doing, feeling, and saying is right or wrong, and instead feels at One with everything.
- It’s in deep meditation,
- it’s by doing readings,
- Self-healing and Reiki
- It’s by planning travel and being able to dream about that travel —getting ready for it: and enjoy it, breathe it in when the time finally arrives when we make the trip.
That’s what I’m practicing and putting my energy into. Placing myself in touch with my Truth-Self that Is strong and solid. And aligned. Being in my zone.
Thank you beautiful Goddesses!
New moon in Gemini, Neptune going retrograde—all about returning to self. Returning to the Divine Feminine Knowingness. Not getting isolated, but paying attention to what’s going on inside and communicating with it.
How have you listened to your inner voice lately? How have you honored your Divine Feminine knowingness and let it into your life? How have you trusted your intuition lately?
I listened unexpectedly. I was looking for a Yoga Teacher Training class for a while. I was looking at one in Costa Rica, one in Lafayette, A couple in Boulder, and then I synchronistically heard about Full Circle Yoga in Longmont. Without having been there before, I knew that was the one and I listened to my inner voice and registered.
It was the perfect training for me. I needed something that was very open to doing things that suit the individual instead of “this is the only way this can be!” “This is the right way!” instead of rigid… and this was the place. It allowed me to have my own Journey instead of going on their journey…
One of the things Erik even said all the time… “This is YOUR yoga practice.”
I full-heartedly trusted my intuition and set my yoga-teacher-training in motion!
I hope you continue to touch in with your Truth-Self, listen to that voice of knowingness, and honor your intuition!
Queen of Cups—Card of the Month—The ultimate lady of intrinsic satisfaction, emotional healing, and authentic nurturing. If you were having reservations about emotional aspects of yourself that sometimes you wish would just stay put—way down there, let the poor girl out of the cave. You can and will handle this part of yourself with ease and care and grace, more so than you suspected you could. When we acknowledge pain and past hurts, they can begin to heal and release. When we don’t, it can be pretty difficult to live in the present moment… especially when the past keeps a lock on that door.
Relationships this month can get deep real quick. They can step into waters that normally we avoid treading. The Queen of Cups is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to getting to the bottom of emotional self-discovery and healing at the base level. She asks the questions, touches the wounds, and centers the soul when the answers begin to brim over. This can be an amazing month of healing through joy if you can be aware of your own process and able to identify your truth when making choices. i.e. not including choices that mirror past patterns of which would be ineffective at the different frequency you reside in now anyway.
The business world in terms of this emotional outpouring of your internal soul may be riding on circumstances and happenstance this month. Taking on more than you can handle to help someone else out, or to appear more helpful than one person could actually be in this situation may knock you out if you’re not careful. Part of this Queen’s process is to balance and adjust using intuition and gut feelings… The idea is not to overextend out of empathy. Keep your wits about you. Acknowledge your feelings about what’s going on around you and then bring them to your mind’s eye. Now how do you see this playing out when you’re not triggered?
February’s Affirmation—”I acknowledge and dive deep into the parts of me that I know to be true, honor my authenticity, and accept my Truth Self.”
