Full moon in airy trickster Gemini. Lorna Bevan at Hare in the Moon Astrology described the energética of this time so well, I want to share her words here.

Sending 🌙💗 to you in these wild times.

“Footfalls echo in the memory, down the passage we did not take, towards the door we never opened, into the rose garden. What we call the beginning is often the end. And to make an end is to make a beginning. The end is where we start from.” TS Eliot.

Welcome to the Wasteland, the In Between, the Zero Point….. whatever you call this place of stillness, suspended in time without movement or momentum. Not until January 2023- when Mars, Mercury and Uranus turn Direct on the 12th,18th and 22nd -will we be released from this place of no escape from the here and now.

For those of us who constantly seek newness, distraction and busyness in order to outrun reality, this is challenging. So many of your old tricks which always got immediate results in the past, are no longer working. That time-line, that energy is now deleted. The feeling of loss and lostness is caused by the fact that the old outdated patterns within you cannot find a resonance field now the old timelines are gone.

What we are really experiencing is the ending of multiple planetary cycles in preparation for an influx of new energy in March 2023 when the Great Eliminator Pluto enters Aquarius for the first time since 1798 and Lord of Time and Karma Saturn enters Pisces for the first time since 1994.

In December, pushing the river is pointless. It’s a time for tying up loose ends of all kinds, for completing incompletions, for weeding out old entanglements that keep you stuck or small. Deeply letting go means looking at what needs to change without guilt or judgement.

Wipe the Slate Clean….

Make 2 lists: What you need to resolve or eliminate and What you are compelled to create.

You are now in a moment where you get to review, rethink and recreate just about anything you want. This may involve any facet of your life. You can’t so easily relate to your past anymore. Your soul sees it all as just experience. There is less and less emotional attachment to it. It’s a blessing because it is making room for new memories. It is freeing you up.

Ask yourself:

what’s heavy, weighing me down?
what am I tolerating, putting up with or settling for?
what am I fantasising about leaving or radically changing?
what would I love to never do again?
what is chronically inflamed?
what am I tired of feeling, and what makes me feel that way?
what is dead in the water?
what no longer has traction?
what’s the one thing I’m afraid to say about my life and what am I going to do about it?”

A Prayer for the Earth

May I trust in the wisdom of the plants and the animals and the water.  May I hear the message whispered in my ear that is for me alone.  May I live with confidence that my soul is eternal and my heartbeat and the heartbeat of the world are one.  May I remember the Earth is my Mother.  May I feel my hand in Hers and have no fear.  May I welcome the gifts that come my way.

~Linda Heisel

Irish Waters by Nancy L

Grief Work

If you come as softly
As wind within the trees
You may hear what I hear
See what sorrow sees.
If you come as lightly
As threading dew
I will take you gladly
Nor ask more of you.
You may sit beside me
Silent as a breath
Only those who stay dead
Shall remember death.
And if you come I will be silent
Nor speak harsh words to you.
I will not ask you why, now.
Or how, or what you do.
We shall sit here, softly
Beneath two different years
And the rich earth between us
Shall drink our tears.

~Audre Lorde

Powerful New Moon in Libra

New Moon in Libra, champion of justice, balance and equal relationships. But imbalance and chaos rule right now in the outer world. The crazy roller coaster of events and emotions continues day after day.

The Goddess of Justice reminds us that true justice and equality are rarely easy to achieve. People who have amassed power and riches from playing by the rules of the current system will fight to keep the system as is — even as the unfairness and inequities of the system are being exposed to everyone. As Machiavelli noted centuries ago, “power corrupts.”

But the Goddess of Justice also reminds us that true power is not about status or position or money. True power flows from within. True power is grounded in knowing and trusting in one’s self and one’s gifts. And standing in a place of true inner power, one person can change the world. Remember Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, Joan of Arc, Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Lasting change grows out of people standing in their power and their knowing.

Get off the roller coaster of news and rumors for awhile. Focus on you. What does your heart need right now?

Allow yourself to feel everything that this time is bringing up in you; fear, rage, confusion, despair, hope, love. Those feelings are markers pointing you towards what matters most to you – and what parts of you need extra care and healing right now.

You can cultivate your internal power and knowing by listening deeply to yourself and all your fears and desires. Inner balance, peace, wisdom and power lie just beyond all those difficult feelings you’ve been trying to avoid.

Your Soul is always there, beneath the outer noise. Listen.
