The Black Moon reveals a need to focus and ignore external distractions as we move forward into emotional fulfillment

Today is the day of the Black Moon for those in the Western Hemisphere of the Earth. The Black Moon is the Second Dark Moon of the month and you can read about it at http://www.space.com/34162-black-moon-guide.html. It is a time when we can really sink inside of ourselves and find the source to our troubles. It can heal and guide us on our journey.

During this Black Moon, what passes is the Incomplete transition due to thoughts that keeps us entangled in action without pause, what assists us in letting go is engaging the inner self instead of running away from the situation. We undergo internal movement to bring our consciousness to a calmer state so that we can intrinsicly reflect on everything and prepare for the transition. We begin a phase of emotional fulfillment and we can embrace this new cycle by being open and not keeping secrets. We allow the self to carry what is necessary within us so that we can express truthful communication outward. (For example carrying inner strength and knowledge that allows us to process situation and speak of our needs).

What is revealed within us is a false need for control while attempting to diligently work on our studies while being distracted by disjointed inspiration that a misunderstanding of emotions which seem chaotic. To remedy this we let go of the external need for control everything, relax, allow the thoughts and feelings to pass gently through our psyche as we focus on what is important now.

What is at the base of this are the illusions of the mind: fragments of our subconscious psyche that are crushing the logical mind and breaking down the barriers that we have created within our consciousness to block out what we do not wish to see. What is best for us in this moment is to focus on what is important within us and block out all other external distractions. Dive deep within ourselves and embrace our true being, our desires and dreams, however much they seem to be contradicted by logical reality.

A look into the underside of the deck reveals that we do not feel at harmony with our environment so we are working on and with self-love at the moment, as we prepare to drive ourselves forward with our venture. Best to keep the end goal in sight as the world opens up to embrace us. In the past we felt disconnected from financial security, and subsequently vulnerable and unprepared. So now we are delaying things and checking with our inner guidance to make sure that we are headed in the right direction. We are fearful of losing touch with ourselves and our emotions while at the same time hoping to be less sensitive to whatever pitfalls may come. The outcome shows that we may be too distracted to build externally, so we will develop Internally.

With all of this, remember to stay optimistic! We will succeed!

MidAutumn Full Moon Lunar Eclipse! Relinquishing Judgement in a Moment of Weakness

Happy Mid-Autumn Festival! Today is not only the Mid-Autumn full moon, but it is also a Penumbral Lunar Eclipse! This is our second eclipse and the energy that built up has been strong. Two eclipses around the time of the Harvest Moon yields a crop from the internal world that is usually hidden deep within us.

For this Full Harvest Moon, we manifested an instinctual urge to gather and keep (collect) what we can and find internal happiness while staying busy and hopeful when faced with injustice/unfairness in our environment (I did a reading a couple months ago asking what the Happy Squirrel means, I should write about it). We Learned not to worry about the many things weighing down on our minds and affecting our body & spirit. What now fades is a ragged inconsistency of efforts and looking towards the future can assist in allowing this to pass.
We are grounded by a release of our secret burdens, reaching out to people so we may open channels of communication. Let go of the energy of our unspoken/unnoticed burdens and send them into the collective [as a message] so that we can receive the feedback, resources, and assistance we need to figure out how to better resolve our issues.
What crowns us is really feeling into what upsets us about our condition and allowing this energy to speak to us about what is lacking in our lives as we channel our need into the world, allowing it to bring us that which we need.

Looking into the background reveals that we are full of great ideas and creating many wonderful things, however we are unable to manage them properly and some are falling out of our hands. Thus we will have less interest in pushing ourselves as hard from now on, even if internally we really want to keep going.
What is best for us in this moment of weakness is to not be so judgemental of ourselves an dothers. Yes we are upset and feel pain, but we have already moved from our original state of dissatisfaction to a much more pleasant place, and in the future we will be charging forward!

So we take this moment of weakness as a necessary mental respite from the hustle, so that we can communicate with ours, emptying our ills into the universe. We do hope to be less reckless with our actions and the outcome shows that we will indeed complete a wonderful project with the skill, resources and assistance we need.

Dark Moon Solar Eclipse Sept 1, 2016 Resurgence of Order

This is a really strong Dark Moon, and combined with a Solar Eclipse, it really opens us up to realization that we Can move past the blocks in our way and We Can Make It!

We release our inhibitions that come from self-doubt and prevent us from listening to ourselves. The lesson is to keep driving forward through everything that stands in our way; despite of the difficulties we encounter and the insecurities within us. Finding happiness and contentment in what we Have, (our little cloister of happiness within the eye of the storm) will help us understand how to keep going. Being able to reflect from a place of calm complacency allows us to learn about our own self-drive, how to connect to it, keep it going, and replenish our fuel when we are feeling worn out.

The shadow aspect of ourselves that this Eclipse shows, is a tendency to drop all our burdens or let them build to overflow, consequently we are either unable or unwilling to handle them. This reveals that we have been focusing on what we are upset about, the pile of “mistakes” and “mishaps” of life.

What New Beginning the Dark Moon brings us is a good distance & Perspective that allows us to plan our goals and nurture our progress. The Energy it brings is one of Inspiration, delicate, gentle and comforting. It lifts us up and carries us through the night as we rest. To allow this to pass we can kick ourselves into gear and Get Going!

The main issue at our foundation, and disturbing our ability to ground, is the feeling of emotional disconnect and dissonance within our lives, as our connections with others either seem strained or dysfunctional. This emotional disturbance causes us to feel deep seated dissatisfaction over a seemingly inability to find good work or see any progress in what we are doing, which creates a sort of “glass ceiling” that prevents us from reaching out goals. So this new moon solar eclipse is revealing all our frustrations so that we must acknowledge them, face them, and then work through the as we kick ourselves back into gear.

A look into the underlying influences surrounding this situation reveals that we are in a deep state of upset, where we feel like we are emotionally drained. What is coming though, is freedom from this cage of negative emotions as we kick into gear and get moving! In the distant past we faced lots of fast movement, then underwent deep mental anxiety that we had to overcome, which brought us to this state of emotional upset. In the future we will be unwilling to leave a situation that’s not quite right for us. What is best right now is to aim to balance our shit out! Time & Money in the physical realm, and a mind/body/spirit connection with the Physical Realm. We currently have some projects that are not coming along because we have stopped working on the, or are not working well in a team environment, Or we are flat out refusing to engage with others at all in our work. The environment has been throwing us into “problems” so that we feel compelled to tackle everything head out in an effort to try and balance everything. In fact, we Really hope for a deep sense of “wa” or peaceful harmony with inner self, and balance with the outer physical realm. In the end, we will develop strict discipline in order to get our lives back in order!

The Empress shows us to remind us of our creative power and magnetic persona which we can harness and embody, in order to attract what is best for us on our path.
