The “Blues” of My Alchemy
I have felt the potent healing power and fertile creative potential of this Full Supermoon (Beaver Moon) for sure, which we haven’t seen this close since 1948 and won’t again until 2034. So to say it provides great potential, is an understatement and there’s no coincidence it is aligned with so much on the collective scene going on like the election and its implications for opportunity on a grand scale.
In simple terms we’re looking at our values with this Taurus Moon and that goes for the self, life in general for ourselves and the collective, and our beliefs around money and abundance as well. Taurus brings in a calming, grounding energy to help us balance things and with a Scorpio Sun, tempers that with our passions brought to the surface in strong, focused, yet patient ways, while integrating our deepest shadow and hidden treasures.
Steady and persevering like the Tortoise and with a focus on abundance and gratitude, rather than lack and denial of the beauty inherent in and around us. A call again for a return to harmony with Earth and partnering with Nature to create change.
We have the ability to channel our emotions and passions productively and to release, cleanse, and transform the toxicity that is running the show.
Since the Moon symbolizes our inner world and all things emotionally hidden, our deepest desires and dreams, and yes, our unconscious shadow and underlying fears, this is a chance to bring it all to the surface and truly feel and see it, learn from it, and then creatively produce from the core truth of our essence once it is revealed, by peeling away those veils.
There’s huge potential for change taking place as we end 2016 – a collective “9” endings year for us, before we begin 2017 – a collective “1” beginnings year. What will we choose to cultivate in this new era?
This Supermoon is amplifying and illuminating the toxicity for us, collectively, that we can choose to cleanse, release, and transform.
Personally, it has illuminated important pieces for me for sure and also strengthened the affirmations of my own values and stance in reflective support of them.
In our new place we are surrounded by windows that we leave open all day and night, since we are high above everything and so we can receive the beauty and gifts of Nature 24 hours a day.
There are tree beings surrounding some, with extended arms offering their gifts.
There’s the lake and mountains offering their expansive wisdom.
And morning, day, and night the Sun and Moon dance in light and colors so brilliantly.
What has been most special is the Moon, which moves around to the windows during the middle of the night where Her light then glows directly on my face as I sleep.
I love waking and being illuminated by Her magick.
And with the Supermoon energy She has been supportive in helping me to move through my own emotions and mourning.
I found myself waking up in the middle of the night just two nights ago filled with feelings about Cosmo and feeling him strongly. And as I looked, the Moon was illuminating the room and I was drenched in Her light. I could see the rabbit on the Moon’s surface and knew that Her magick, along with my beloved rabbit family were helping me to heal.
I had a lot of emotional release through the night with the help of the Moon and Cosmo.
And it was just what I needed, as while I did experience release of emotions during the time leading up to and of Cosmo’s transition, I was also needing to be strong for him and Dave. Then we had the whole move transition the last couple of weeks, and now as it has come to closure I’m able to release the rest of my natural mourning process.
The Moon has been my best friend in that process helping to bring out all that needs to and then helping to turn it into alchemy for creative potency.
Some may say these are the “blues of sadness” I am moving through, but I feel them to be the “blues of magick.”
This evident in the colors that showed up all around me on our hike yesterday and that I was immersed in.
It was not a “sad” blue, but an “enchanted” blue revealing all the hues of its beauty that are my favorite and this movement through my own pains as the natural beauty inherent in love and life, felt to be embodied as my true aura and put me forever in the realm of my nature and essence.
I will continue to embrace the flow and release that this beautiful and powerful Supermoon assists me in, as well as invite any more to come forth that needs to be transmuted as well.
I did experience just that also on the hike yesterday, as in conversation I moved through, made conscious, and claimed something huge in a Scorpio way, which will have huge effects on my own shadow integrated.
It is not always easy, I know! But the support is there. It truly is, if you truly invite and embrace it.
Yesterday’s beautiful 8 mile hike on Angora Lakes Trail (I love the reference to rabbits in the name and there was even a young woman with a little dog named “Tiny” that went by us on the hike – that was one of Joy’s nicknames – so my sweet bunny loves were all around me) was incredible in so many ways. We keep discovering hidden gems of lakes and new hikes all the time here in the back country of Lake Tahoe.
I played with my shadow and invited her peacefully in.
I found a piece of an old honeycomb with potent hexagon sacred geometry.
I looked at the reflections in a puddle illuminating the truth.
I got to see Fallen Leaf Lake from above at a new perspective.
I saw more reflections at the lower lake of Angora in the light of the Sun.
I then discovered the alchemy within my emotions that revealed the magickal blue inherent always regardless of the light being present, as we came upon Angora Lake just as the Sun dipped behind the mountains. I am the light.
And that knowing creates a ripple effect out to everything I touch and experience, transforming it all instantly.
Angora Lake reminded me of a beloved place in Montana that I miss and will return to soon, being anchored by the ashes of my sweet Joy and Nestor.
I even wore my cosmic pants in honor of Cosmo.
There is new life awakening from the natural cycle of all things. And that’s worth smiling about.
