A Poem for the New Year: More to Be

January 5, 2019 Leave a comment

This can be a tough time of year for many; sickness, hospitalization, even death. The holidays mark passages; we celebrate hard and then the let-down sinks in. And, now, today we move through a new moon/solar eclipse in Capricorn – at 8:28 PM Eastern.

So, be careful with yourself, watch your energy level, stay atuned to your inner needs, and be!

More to Be

The list is long,
The new year moves
Ahead, more’s afoot,
Low sun shadows head north.

Days remain short,
Long dark cools the soul.
Energy wanes in the aftermath
And always more to do.

Chill winds blow,
A chance of snow,
Time to hunker
Shrugging in the lee.

Moon hunkers in sun’s lee
Tonight. Long lists wait,
The breath abates,
And always more to be.

MONDAY’S POEM: Shadows

May 27, 2013 Leave a comment

I wrote this in anticipation of the Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse we experienced early Saturday morning here on the East Coast. Unfortunately it was cloudy here and we didn’t “see” the eclipse, but all other senses were engaged as the earth’s shadow shrouded the Moon in a dark veil. Did you feel it?

I love the Moon; I have since I was a kid and would watch the moon follow our car as my Dad drove along the country roads of Wisconsin. I’ve been fortunate to see many eclipses; so, while I did not see this Sagittarius Moon eclipse with my normal eyes, I certainly know what it “looked” like!

Shadows

They loom large
Cast by the rising Moon
Full up in the East.

What’s this? Shadows
Dim as the light fades
Swallowed up too soon.

Gone but for a blood
Red rim and rusty face,
Smoke and a faint glow.

But, wait; there’s more:
A grin begins to crack
The dusty rim.

Shadows brighten
And recede walking
Toward the rising Moon.

Alone, the path lies
Dark with shadows
Cast by the rising Moon.

New Moon/Solar Eclipse and more…

May 10, 2013 Leave a comment

I was all set to cast my I Ching Gua for the New Moon/Solar Eclipse and more…. But this isn’t going to happen until later. These Heavenly events are really hitting me hard. I have been alternating shaking with sweating for a couple of days now. Could this be the massive New Moon/Eclipse energy?

So, I am taking the easy way out and using valuable information from dear friends and expert astrologers:

NEW MOON and SOLAR ECLIPSE IN TAURUS

PRACTICE “VARJA PRIDE” (the essential dignity of being alive!)

  

WE ARE IN THE MIDST OF A HUGE INFLUX OF LIGHT FROM

THREE ECLIPSES IN ONE MONTH! 

Scorpio Lunar Eclipse on April 25

TAURUS SOLAR ECLIPSE ON MAY 9

Sagittarius Lunar Eclipse on May 24

This informs us that magnificent waves of light are heading our way.  These are believed to be the first waves of energy coming from the Great Shift of December 21, 2012…….you can say we have shifted in to

The Age of Light. 

Are you open to receiving that Light?

Are you willing to allow this Sacred Light to heal the Taurus shadow of low self-worth?
 

 I recently learned that while low self-esteem is practically epidemic in the USA, it is effectively unknown in some other cultures.  The concept even had to be explained to the Dalai Lama because a sense of low self-worth does not even exist in his culture!  This Solar Eclipse in Taurus challenges us to have a deep re-evaluation and recognition of our inherent self-worth.

During this Taurus Solar Eclipse/New Moon where we are challenged to release any sense of low self-esteem , it seems valuable to understand and accept the concept of VAJRA PRIDE. 

Here is a profound quote from Spiritual teacher Svasti that can be so helpful during this eclipse which supports us in releasing old patterns and imprinting a life enhancing new pattern:

“I honour every person out there in the world coming to terms with their wild and wacky monkey mind, the mind that wounds our Selves as well as others. The mind that makes us believe we are not enough, we are not okay and we are not who or what we should be. I also honour those that haven’t had that battle yet because at some point in our lives, it seems to me that we all come face to face with our inner demons. I honour everyone who lives and breathes and I sincerely hope that one day we all  find for ourselves what is called  “Vajra pride or the essential dignity of being alive”

Here is yet another quote from Lama Gursam on this Taurus subject.

Vajra pride is seeing yourself as inseparable from the deity. The two most important things in tantric practice are vajra pride and pure vision, seeing yourself and others as deities.

Taurus energy has a stubborn streak.  While we all know the negative side of stubbornness, why not harness a more positive aspect of this Taurus stubbornness and use it as “stick-to-it tiveness”…dliligently practicing Vajra Pride, our essential dignity and value; acknowledging and owning ourselves and others as deities.  Our loving cosmos is abundantly supporting us as part of our Hero’s Journey with these 3 transforming eclipses.

Energies of the New Moon in Taurus:

  • Self-Worth
  • Money
  • Loves Nature, the Earth
  • Serenity
  • Sensuousness
  • Creates Security
  • Aversion to Drama
  • Practicality
  • Pleasure from the senses

Archetypes: Diva of the Earth:

                   Goddess of Pleasure

Shadow Energies:

  • Stubbornness used to limit us
  • Fearful of Change
  • Need for Security stifles growth
  • Laziness
  • Overvalues Material Security

Deep material, Gloria; thank you!

And here is a snippet from friend and esoteric astrologer, Chris Larget:

This moment in history highlights communication between dimensions (Neptune back in Pisces after roughly 165 years).  This means more contact with persons and animals who now reside in another dimension.

How do you feel with all this energy banging around? I hope you stay well and grounded!
