As the year draws toward its close and I pour over the lunar cycles and eclipses left before the days grow lighter on the Winter Solstice, I’m struck by these questions:
~ What if the stories of our collective past simply yearn to be acknowledged?
~ What if the burdens of lineage to which we’re tied desire nothing more than to venture out of the shadows into the healing light of our hearts?
~ How refreshing and profound would it be if we met current triggers of past traumas with a welcoming sense of gratitude instead of dread?
Maybe the season of giving follows the season of gratitude in a way that aligns perfectly with the higher truth of both states of being.
When we are grateful, we are generous.
When we are generous, we are grateful.
In both states of being, we are for giving, and we are blessed.
What if we embraced all of the personal and collective pain that is emerging now with the spirit of gratitude, generosity, and forgiveness?
Tonight’s Lunar Eclipse at November 30, 2020 at 2:43 am MST, helps us clear the way forward by encouraging us to let go of what is dying. With the Moon at the eighth degree of Gemini and the Sun opposing it in Sagittarius, this eclipse asks us to speak of what is leaving in a way that honors its truth even as we bid it farewell. If we can do this with words wrapped in love and gratitude in our hearts, we can harness the limitless power of the spoken word and embrace the expansive optimism of Sagittarius. In two short weeks, on December 14, 2020 at 9:15 am MST, we’ll have another opportunity to continue clearing the way forward during the Solar Eclipse at 23 degrees Sagittarius. We’ll be called once again to open our minds and hearts to the higher truths of humanity’s collective consciousness and own our part in creating it. As we acknowledge and release our pain now, we’ll be more prepared to co-create a place worthy of our presence.
Here’s to mining the collective treasures of our deeper work and creating a new world where we abide in love together.With peace and light, for all relations.
