And the Moon Makes Her Journey

Wow, what an intense dark moon / mercury shift experience this has been!  After taking a deep breath and thinking “holy crap, what was all of THAT about,” I was reminded of the depth and the strength of emotion that can be discovered in the Dark of the Moon. 

The Dark of the Moon hearlds an energy that illuminates our inner shadow source.  The shadow that may manifest itself in the relationships that we draw, the finances that we perpetuate, the situations that we “KNOW” really no longer serve us and the stumbing blocks that we place in front of our paths to situations that may fuel us.  The shadow emotions are too often those we choose not to acknowledge.  We choose not to give these messengers their voice.  Regardless of what we choose to do, (even when we feel that we are just too ascended to actually have these shadow emotions) the voices of this shadow are strong and provide the fuel that ignites our flow of creation energy.  When we choose to disregard these voices, (to ignore the shadow) this creative flow may keep us in an untoward cycle of creation.

But when acknowledged and given voice, these emotions can shift us from one energy source that keeps us in an untoward cycle to an energy source that welcomes and creates the new journey of  forward and fulfilling movement.

The discoveries found within the energy of the Dark of the Moon birth the New Beginnings of the New Moon. 

I am grateful to this wonderful Goddess energy that allows me to safely explore the shadow so I can create the light of my path.


Verbal Liberation

I am, and always have been, a verbally expressive person.  Some would even view this expressiveness as being bossy, a but-in-ski, and even bitchy.  It doesn’t really matter what label you put on it, I can typically be counted on to lay it verbally “on the line.”

Over the years I have learned what battles to fight, what situations warrant an opinion, and what situations make me feel that I really don’t want to exert the verbal energy.  I try to only express when my opinion is asked for and when the situation directly (or indirectly) impacts me. (note that the last part is loaded with huge load of potentiality) 

There have been some recent events where I have been very verbally expressive.  My opinions were not asked for; but the situation did impact me directly.  I do know that the opinions that I offered were met with as much appreciation as one would experience if one found a turd in one’s coffee.

In fact, after expressing my latest opinion, I heard that all too familiar “mom” voice stating “when are you going to learn to keep your mouth shut.”  That made me think for a minute.

I thought … hmmm …  I’m 52ish years old … I haven’t YET learned to keep my mouth shut … I rarely desire to keep my mouth shut …  and in all probability I would probably explode if I tried to keep my mouth shut.  So I’m thinking that the mouth shutting thing will never be among my skill set. I will never “learn” to keep my mouth shut. 

I find that realization to be wonderfully liberating.  I love getting older!
