People have been mentioning to me that the veil doesn't seem to feel as thin as it usually does. I noticed this, too. I've been a bit perplexed by it, wondering what's going on. Last night during meditation I realized the veil is thin, like usual, but we're beginning to adjust to the higher vibrations. I could feel the strength, love, support and power of all my ancestors and loved ones who have crossed over, closer than before, more present than before, yet still me, still here in my world.
The Moon was in Aquarius as we celebrate our October 31 Halloween and Samhain. With the Sun in Scorpio and other energies in Scorpio, this was a powerful set up for magic. And by magic, I mean the tools we have to create the world we desire, the world of our higher intentions and heart & soul centered purposes. Scorpio wants power, Aquarius has power. Scorpio has emotions, Aquarius wants emotions. And Aquarius brings the words and mind along with the brilliant openness of believing that anything is possible and Scorpio brings an intensity to take what doesn't work, let it go and rise to embrace the light that will create what is desired. Put that in your cauldron and stir it around a bit, and when it's simmered to perfection, well, watch out world because here comes something of great power, beauty and love.
To that end, we also need to be very mindful of what we say, the emotions behind and with it, our tone of voice, our body language, our boundaries and make sure we're not being psychic vampires or letting others vampire us.
This is a good time to do a fire ritual, releasing what you want to let go of and then call in what you desire, from your heart and soul. Write what you want to release on pieces of paper and burn them in the flame of a candle, a fireplace, a fire pit or a good old fashioned campfire. Then let the Universe know what you DO want to call into your life.
This is the time of the year when the stories of Persephone descending into the underworld, Sleeping Beauty falling into her slumber, Snow White "dying", and more are the ancient stuff of our unconscious minds. I always wonder, what if Persephone CHOSE to go to and stay in the underworld to heal those lost souls with the gifts SHE had? What if we were all given the opportunity to choose to be who we came here to be, to create, heal, love in the ways that are unique to only us? And what if all of us fit together into one giant, gorgeous, perfect puzzle? This is the time of the year to let go of the layers of what we're NOT so we can shine with what we ARE.
As I write this on Saturday night, the Moon has moved into Pisces. Moon in Pisces can be challenging as it can bring up deep fears and put an emotional focus on addictive behaviors. But the real beauty of Moon in Pisces is the depths we can reach in meditation and while we sleep and dream. Moon in Pisces can also help us really FEEL the connection between every single molecule, atom and particle of sparkly stardust in the entire Universe - which we are ALL made of. And that includes each and every one of us, every animal, rock, flower, tree, weed, bird, the water, the air, the clouds, the planets, everything. By everything I mean everything.
Moon in Pisces also gives us the gift of feeling what holds all of these sparkly particles together - love. The most glorious and unconditional love we can imagine and beyond even our imagining.
So have some chamomile & lavender tea, spray some lavender and water spray around you, light a candle, soak in a bubble bath, whatever you feel drawn to, and let yourself melt into the All That Is. The sparkly stardust, the love that holds us all together, and dream of the beauty that you are. The beautiful, love and energy we all are.
