Waxing Moon half-lit in Virgo12 Jun 2016, by moon&sky in
Time to pause under the half-lit waxing Moon. Time to review, revise and realign.
We are still under the influence of the Mutable Grand Cross calling us to de-clutter and re-evaluate our perceptions, ideas, beliefs and patterns; and to realign our hearts and minds with each other, and with bigger picture Spirit. Virgo Moon supports us with the decluttering of mind and emotion, and has been drawing attention to the details these last few days.
We received another big push for all this a couple of days ago that ramps up the efforts (June 9: Eris-Uranus conjunction into 2017 and effects into 2018. You may have heard a lot about this already). We are called to open, open, open to what we see that keeps us from being free to Be who and what we are. It is an urgent call to expose and face the ways in which we exploit, repress and oppress ourselves and the systems of Mother Earth. This call echoes a message we’ve been hearing for some time and now there is even more power being brought to the undertaking. Emotional power is highlighted (Mercury and Chiron aligned with Eris-Uranus conjunction).
Later today (at 1733pdt) Moon moves into Libra supporting the work of balance and harmony. Tomorrow (June 13) we receive additional support in releasing/forgiving the past (Neptune moves retrograde and is in tight square with Saturn, also in retrograde) and there will be a strong pull inward (more potent due to MGC). This inward pull may feel out of sync with a waxing Moon but that is also reflective of these times: it’s a call to work inwardly and outwardly simultaneously. Tricky bit of negotiating but the influence may also help us open further and more easily tap creative flows.
Whatever the seed(s) you are nourishing this cycle, continue to examine perceptions, ideas, beliefs and assumptions. Focus on choices that increase integrity, respect and freedom, both personally and collectively. If things get a bit intense and you find yourself slipping, Stop. Look at what it is that throws balance. Listen for the ways to return and maintain balance.
Make time. Take one step at a time. Embrace your feelings and be honest about what is happening. Identify the facts that lead to the feelings. If tense or stressed, look into your heart first, and release any attachments or expectations. And invest, invest, invest in all that embodies, supports and guides you to balance. Take a breath and another. Walk in Nature. Have a Sun bath, Moon bath, or immerse in sweet-scented waters. Let peace and love flow in.
Pause, review, revise and realign
mind, heart and Spirit
with all you find most divine
Seek in the light and dark within to find your measure
scrutinize and discern and expose
all that disrupts the flow of Life’s treasures
Face inconvenient and uncomfortable truths
and with self-told lies and unwarranted constraints, be ruthless.
Love, joy, respect and freedom
these are the gifts given to All in the kin-dom
Be clever as Crow (Libra) and fierce as mother Bear (Virgo)
and fearlessly claim the gifts for self, other and Earth
and All for which you care!
Go forth Spirit Warrior and Be all you were born to Be!
Nurture your Nature
with Love and Light
Wishing you the gracious space to Be the all of you,
Strong, Bold & Free!
