As I get together with the Star Beings for this New Moon, I find that we sit in a small, completely dark space and it is comfortable, quiet and very peaceful; I feel happily contained. Like a swaddled baby, I feel protected and hidden. We are deep into the autumn and wintertime and this is a drawing-in that feels much needed and magical.

How far in can you pull into your snail shell now? Surely life pulls with work and holiday and family life, but how much can you rest?

Because within this space, an emotional tenderness comes… as we place our hands upon the earth, upon the floor of this quiet place and we sense the heartbeat of the earth herself.

Here is the grief, here is the sadness, and the tears for all that is being taken from the Earth and for all that is dying now. Some of what passes away will return, but much that is going, goes for good.

We weep and we grieve… this is right to do.  We know in our souls that to honor this threshold of death – to acknowledge and weep at the passing of that which held life – is a sacred act because it has magical properties. Properties beyond the psychology of our own well-being. To place our awareness and attention upon thresholds of other beings builds renewal for that which comes to take this being’s place.

Just like you heard in school: matter is neither created nor destroyed. This has meaning for us in that there is a totality of the cosmos and beings leaving creates a vacuum into which something else is drawn. It is our grief and honoring, our acknowledging and being present with the losses that feeds this renewal process. This cycle, give way to your grief in doses that are manageable for you if you can. And  remember the powerful center that you strengthened in the last Full Moon cycle this serves deeply now. Blessings!
