What is manifested this Full Moon is a confrontation with the severity within us as we release an obsession with having the “right answer”, thereby rationally analyzing everything wherein we pick apart issues into tiny pieces which only serves to confuse us even more. The question we face is: How severe are we to ourselves? Are we allowing our inner intuition, inner knowing, inner wisdom of the heart guide us? Are we able to release the iron grip of our conscious mind to allow the bubbles of inner guidance to float to the surface and bring inspiration and clarity?
What begins to fade at this cycle midpoint is the a morbid fascination with failures and how “badly” we have done. Contrary to what most of us have been taught, life is not a two dimensional set of “Successes” or “Failures”. There are varying degrees of success, like how well we do on something, and also varying degrees of “failure” or noncompletion. What seems like a “failure” can actually be a valuable learning experience that helps us grow, or a small step towards a bigger goal. Allowing our focus to move away from “failures” allows us to move forward.
We can prepare by releasing the painful memories in our head and letting go of fear, anger, resentment, and the negativity of our ego. We do this by opening up to the truth within us, allowing all aspects either soothe or sting us. In this way, may we face the shadow within and release the conscious mind’s grip on what was previously denied or hidden.
We can allow by simply letting everything that does not serve us pass away. When we let go, we transcend our prior phase, and enter a new level and awareness of existence. It hurts at times, because these elements we hold onto did work for us in the past; but when we hold on to parts of us that have expired, the rot spreads and sinks into our being, tainting our integrity and covering it with grime. As I filmed my video “releasing into a sea of pain” came to mind. So I want to remind us all that it is temporary pain, which may seem like forever at the moment, but once we have gone through our trials and allowed the poison within us fade away. We can move into a new phase of awareness.
What grounds us creating a new foundation of support within us, as the social structures which used to function may no longer support us.
What crowns us is working towards our goals which are dreams of the spirit, our heart, our Life Purpose. In this midpoint of this phase, and as we prepare for a new one, this is what can help guide us to the next phase.
