…with my inner contacts with me, I step through the threshold into my place of consciousness for this new moon….harvest colors: rust and great big sunflowers toasted dry in late autumn‘s light. Yellow and the crunch of dried leaves and corn stocks as the vibrant decay reigns around us. We enter into the season of Samhain, Halloween. This cycle embraces that festive holiday and brings us daylight savings; this abrupt shift that awakens us to the shorter days and longer nights if we haven’t awoken to them already.
I see a scarecrow, again all russets, reds, browns and yellows. I see the beauty of the fading life force. My heart swells like a pumpkin with the rich foods and celebratory season of harvest. With the truth that we reap what we have sown. Come close in to your own small patch of earth. The garden that you plant and tend. Yes certainly, we all play a part in the global crazy. But I believe this work of the Lunar Lowdown centers around that which we have the most influence upon: the personal. The personal creates the collective – but in this time of media overwhelm be careful to not let the collective create your personal.
Astrologically with Uranus directly opposed this New Moon we may find the impermanence of this world, the true insecurity of all things illustrated for us once again.
And the gift of Libra (and the beings who dwell here) is dynamic movement: the ability to dance. Be light on your feet, be lithe and supple. Emphasize the self-care that supports your ability to roll with the changes. Do the personal work to embrace the best case scenario: Uranus can purify the places where we are stodgy, stuck and stiff. Uranus brings the gift of innovation, novelty and renewal.
Remember Libra is the scales: The lightly balanced fluid pans that measure and respond to the world around them. They do this through a center pole that runs down deep into the earth. This is a model for us as human beings – to be grounded, to be still in our core while moving and dancing with our environment on the outside.
Color… food… harvest… winter preparation. Feast upon what you are given in gratitude. Clear out, move away from what is not healthy. Re-calibrate to the primal wisdom inside of you instead of what might be getting dropped carelessly, forcefully upon those pans of your scales.
I think we are complete… and I come back into the visionary realm holding hands with my inner contacts around a cauldron that is a pumpkin and a black kettle. Here I feel the ancestors soooooo strongly asking you to find your joy… the ancestors exhort you to be grateful that you are alive: yes there are difficulties, it is not easy. Yet sink into the wisdom that lives within you in this new moon!
