Reading for October's New Moon in Scorpio
This evening, I did a reading for a women's circle that I am truly grateful to work with. I feel called to share what was revealed with whomever may feel called to read this. I relate much of it to Standing Rock because this event is symbolic of a collective state, a monumental moment in our decision to heal.
I don't know about you all but I have been undergoing some tremendous feelings these past few weeks. I have seen snapshots of the amazing potential myself and the collective possess, and conversely, have also been made aware of what must be released, what actions must be taken in order to realize these visions of peace and beauty.
I did this reading to connect us with the messages we need to hear and reflect upon as we continue our good work as women, men, sisters, brothers, mamas, daddies, lovers, children, and protectors of the earth.
Wise Woman: What we need to KNOW
The Erinyes: CRISIS
Blue Kyanite: LETTING GO
The Erinyes, three dark maiden goddesses from Greek mythology, come forth to express that a crisis is at hand. We do not have to feel panic stricken in the face of this crisis, but simply acknowledge and accept that this crisis is present. Once we acknowledge the crisis at hand, we can reach out and ask for help. The blue kyanite crystal healing card asks us to let go. Surrender to the crisis. Don't try to stay "strong" and ignore it or tough it out all by yourself. It is okay to reach out and ask for help. It is time to let go of any beliefs that we are weak if we need support, beliefs that isolate us and close us off to love and connection. We are not alone and never have been. We are supported by the ancestral wisdom that resides within each one of us. We are also supported by one another. The only way crisis can be resolved is by facing it head on and taking the necessary steps to heal.
This is true for us as individuals and as a collective. I can't help but think of of all that is taking place with our brothers and sisters at Standing Rock. A fundamental water crisis, the straw on top of the camel's back of many serious environmental and humanitarian crises, has presented itself to humanity. How will we address it? Will we ignore this crisis, sweep it under the rug as too many have done for too long? Or will we acknowledge it, see it for the real threat it is to the earth and our humanity, and join together to fight for what is in our hearts? The ego tricks us. We think "oh what can little old me do?". When we think this way, we are mistaken about our identity. You are not just your name, your history, your body. You are a living expression of love. Love is the greatest power there is, so how can you be a powerless being if your center is comprised of the most powerful force there is? It is time for us to let go of the illusion of separation. It is time to recognize the crisis, join together in unity, and stand up for truth.
Emotional Body: What we need to FEEL
Black Tourmaline: PROTECTION
As we approach the full moon in Scorpio tomorrow (Sunday), deep emotions and passionate energies are being stirred up. Scorpio is a water sign, no stranger to the depths of emotion. Scorpio is not afraid to look at the darkness, for they understand that with pain comes bliss, with death comes rebirth. At this time we are being called to dive deep into our emotional expressions, to get in touch with what feelings are presenting themselves in our bodies and spirits. The appearance of black tourmaline is asking us to protect these emotional spaces. Do not allow energy vampires, such as "shoulds", pushy friends/family, pervasive cultural stigmas, or the media, allow you to doubt what you are strongly feeling. Whether you are feeling deep longing, sadness, gratitude, or a mix of it all, know that these feelings need to be felt, as they are agents for deep change.
Again, Standing Rock is reflected here as emotions are symbolized by the element of water: we are being called to protect our water. We are being called to trust our emotional intelligence and protect all that makes us human, not allowing the diseases of fear, apathy, and complacency to numb us to our true selves, our true destiny.
Sexuality/Creativity: What we need to DO
Vila: SHAPE SHIFTING
Libyan Gold Tektite: MANIFESTATION
It is time to take new shape! It is time to see ourselves in a way that we never have before! It is time to look in the mirror and see our grace, power, and light. Libyan Gold Tektite appears to reflect the need to manifest that light into action. There is no more time to hesitate, doubt, fear, or get lost in the illusion of confusion. When we center ourselves, we KNOW what we want, we KNOW the love that we are capable of receiving and the love we came here to give. So, whatever it takes for us to come into that knowing, come into that light, come into the manifestation of the living Gods and Goddesses that we are, now is the time to implement it.
Staying grounded and connected in our energy field is so important. We cannot neglect SELF CARE. We must be diligent in nourishing ourselves so that we can be full of spirit and show up in the way we desire, in the way that we all know that we can. No more excuses and no more playing small. This is not to say that we must suddenly transform into our ideal of perfection, but it is about setting proper boundaries and being clear about it. Bring awareness to patterns, thoughts, and habits that are not serving our highest good and saying "no, not that...THIS", "no, not that...THIS", decisively cutting away at the dead weight, allowing the practice of setting boundaries guide us to what we truly want and need. Clarity and harmony within the self brings peace.
