Sunday inspiration for the Taurus Full Moon

Art by Pamela Matthews

Seek the beauty in life’s betrayals
For all is forgivable in this grand dance
Find the courage to see through ugliness and be grateful for the reflections of each mirror
For all is an archetypal character playing a part in your own blockbuster movie

Give yourself permission to fail miserably
For all failures are seeds for your greatest triumphs
Allow the mystery of the creative muse to flow through your bone marrow inspiring you to walk your dreaming path
For all is lifting you from the slumber of your innate birthright.
Follow the longings of your soul
For all is an invitation to co-create synchronicity and magic

Look deep within, find the stories you are telling yourself that are not true.

For the future is a reanimation of the past and with pen in hand you have a choice to change the script of your life story here in this now.

For laying dormant inside of you is the secret of secrets and treasure of treasures.

Seek and thy shall find.

In LaK’ech

Sunday inspiration: This is the time

“This is the time to draw nearer to each other.

This is the time to forgo building our businesses to build intimate relationships; relationships of meaning and care, of day-to-day relevance and the wisdom of skin-to-skin.

This is the time to measure our merit based on our actual, measurable relevance; relevance to the people around us (human and more-than-human).

This is the time to get closer to the Earth, to be sustained by its magnitude, complexity and benevolence.

This is the time to remember what silence feels like, to sit in circle together around the Fire and catch the new songs and gestures; ones that will shepherd us into and through the dark belly of this grief, to come out the other side as humans with the resilience to weather the unimaginable human-made storm, whose early winds are already blowing.”

Christiane Pelmas 

thank you to my friend Alisa for the quote.

Sunday poetry: Enter the wild with care

Enter the wild with care, my love
And speak the things you see
Let new names take and root and thrive and grow
And even as you travel far from heather, crag and river
May you like the little fisher, set the stream alight with glitter
May you enter now as otter without falter into water

Look to the sky with care, my love
And speak the things you see
Let new names take and root and thrive and grow
And even as you journey on past dying stars exploding
Like the gilded one in flight, leave your little gifts of light
And in the dead of night my darling, find the gleaming eye of starling
Like the little aviator, sing your heart to all dark matter

Walk through the world with care, my love
And sing the things you see
Let new names take and root and thrive and grow
And even as you stumble through machair sands eroding
Let the fern unfurl your grieving, let the heron still your breathing
Let the selkie swim you deeper, oh my little silver-seeker
Even as the hour grows bleaker, be the singer and the speaker
And in city and in forest, let the larks become your chorus
And when every hope is gone, let the raven call you home

–Poetry from Karine Polwart

inspiration for the journey through Scorpio season

Art by Melissa Vincent

You may be blind to the very thing that will make your life feel worth living. You may be gullible, taking in the world’s insidious lessons in superficial satisfaction.  Therefore, you have to dig deeper.  Discover who you are and who you want to be.  Don’t be dissuaded from that objective by the illusory promises of commercial life.  Instead, be yourself.

That is the point of the night sea journey—to be born into yourself. There, you are in the amniotic fluid, in an alchemical substance once again. You are journeying toward your own life. You are preparing for your fate. The promise is exhilarating, but the dangers are extreme. You have to avoid being just one of the crowd and instead take the chance of being born an individual.

–Thomas Moore, The Dark Night of the Soul

Sunday inspiration for the Aries Full Moon

Artist unknown

Every human being who walks the Earth Mother has an individual sacred path through life. That sacred path is created by the weaving of many tangible and intangible threads, which connect all of our emotions, dreams, thoughts, and experiences.

The spirit’s invisible thread of life force unfurls at birth and carries us through the twists and turns of growing up and learning about life on planet Earth. Our lives will change directions many times as experiences urge us to grow.

Every decision we make and every shift in our perceptions can alter the course of our path through life and bring new experiences or expanded horizons. Every time we alter our priorities, we change our path. Every time we allow ourselves to use our imagination, we change our view of reality. Every time we decide to change direction, we design and redesign our lifestyles, habits, priorities, personal needs, and goals
