Cinderella and the Blood Moon
Dear luminous tribal dancer,
Ah yes doesn’t that name conjure up images of dancing with passion and grace under a full moon by the sacred stones of Avalon or other sacred sites in the world?
I wish I could say I did such a thing but alas after imbibing in a large glass of kale and cucumber juice I caught a nasty bug and have been down for the count all weekend, only pirouetting to the “loo” and stumbling in and out of bed. I have been dancing the toilet tango. Not in the most graceful way either.
This weekend we have our Super Blood Moon, and lunar eclipse all in one shot. This is when the moon’s orbit brings it closest to the earth so it appears huge and because of the particles that reflect light between the earth and the moon, it also appears to shine with a reddish hue. It’s the most beautiful sight.
Soul Contract astrologer Robert Ohotto and me are hosting a wild and wondrous weekend – Intuition 3.0 -in a couple weeks at The Omega Institute in Rhinebeck NY. (you should come!) During our planning session I asked his opinion on the meaning of this moon extravaganza and what we can expect for this week ahead. In alignment with my universal energy forecast (I’m always amazed at how in sync my cards are with the planetary influences that Robert knows about!) we can expect to feel that breakthrough of regenerative energy that we need to harness as we jettison our false truths in order to blast off into our authentic lives.
It’s been my experience and observation that the last month or so has been an interesting time for many of us of recognizing the tethers to our old stories that can so easily yank us back into what we don’t want as we try to blast off on our rockets to better vistas.
Whoa lemme go! Does that resonate with you?
As always it’s an inside job not about outer conditions. Once we can learn to gently cut the ties to our former selves while radically accepting and forgiving, clarity and freedom is the gift we can give ourselves, and others.
The Aries full moon invites us into new exciting beginnings! We will get to begin again but only after disrupting the old and recognizing the ties that bind us that the eclipse represents.
It’s an exciting time for sure. False truths will be revealed and new ideas and inspirations will get a chance to flourish in the world. We are the ones we have been waiting for.
Yes that means you too- even if you’re sitting and reading this feeling like donkey dung looking for someone to be mad at. Or, maybe you’re feeling like you’re a super being trapped in a teeny glass bowl that your cat thinks is a cool new toy. “Let me outta here!” prrrrrrrr- meow –thwat!”
Or, maybe you got stuck inside Harry Potter’s invisibility cape! No one can hear or see how awesome you are! Etc etc.
So this too shall pass as we keep going in our lives and keep believing in the best and good in ourselves and the world just like Cinderella who knew to “have courage, and be kind!”.
Yes I admit I am a die hard Disney girl and I spent Saturday night with the latest Cinderella Movie laughing and crying like the sentimental fool I am.
Perhaps we might learn from her as she convinced the prince not to hunt the majestic stag “Just because that’s the way it’s done, doesn’t mean that’s the way you have to do it!”
Imagine the ability to do things differently unencumbered by past conditioning?
Imagine being able to summon magic and claim who you really are?
Can you take a real risk?
My favorite line in the movie sums it up for us all.
“To be seen as we truly are, is the biggest risk we will ever take. Will we be enough as we really are?” And one day, the question will come, you will be asked, “Who are you?” And if you’re brave enough, you will answer, “I have nothing. I am nothing, but who I am.”
It’s time we all begin to risk our authenticity and drop our masks, untie the illusions, cut the tethers that keep us bound to old ways.
A new day is dawning. A new dance! Remember this – it’s ok to be in the learning. Mastery doesn’t happen without practice.
Ok.. tag You’re it! Tell me who you thought you were, and tell me who you really are!
