The Lunar Lowdown – a few notes
While not a transcript of our current video by any means,
I’ve included the notes below if you’d prefer to read or for referencing the information later!
Actual Time of Celestial Event: Friday January 24th, 2020 @ 2:41 pm MST
Sun’s position: 9 degrees Capricorn (The SeaGoat)
Moon’s position: 9 degrees Capricorn (The SeaGoat)
…I bring myself into the sacred Cross and from here down to deep stillness …hibernation. Surrounded by Divinity, the stars, my guides I seek insights here for the New Moon with the Sun and Moon together in the beginning of Capricorn, the SeaGoat.
I feel fixed upon the center of the earth, my hands holding the earth light, my feet up to the sky. I feel calm and unswervingly focused into the earth, into the roots, into the slumber beneath the soil – this of course reminds me of the Hanged Man gesture.
and I become aware of the heat of the other hemisphere as they slide towards Lammas, the first harvest. I wonder how to speak to an entire global experience in this way. I’m so close to quitting, to failing, to letting go, to releasing all effort. To falling asleep completely.
I wonder about the degree to which other people feel flattened? This winter brings much in global news that is of a scale we have not seen perhaps in our personal lifetime. How to metabolize this? How to access this new Moon in Capricorn?
Again the image of the Hanged Man shines brightly within the dark of the new moon: This is the time to observe with new eyes that which you may take for granted around you. To maintain the basics for fundamental health and well-being and to root repeatedly, diligently into that which is larger than yourself: the web of life and spirit as you know and revere it. The realm of nature and its cycles and patterns. The Living intelligence of the land and the fairy. The starry expanse of the heavens and the mystery of light. God, Angels, patterns of unseen beings in sacred geometric formations around you and this world.
The Stars show me an image of a leaf upon a tree – blowing in the wind, hanging on like all the other leaves around it. This one leaf simply does its job of receiving light, turning it into food for itself to be alive – in all that simplicity and deep complexity, simultaneously.
I understand these images in the context of our placement within the constellation Capricorn, a Being who can parse down the overwhelm into small steps that are doable. We are shown how we gather our coat around ourselves within a windstorm, leaning forward and simply taking one step after another bringing the consciousness there, to the simplest of what is before oneself.
Remember, the web of life and conditions around us are changing and swirling and not in our control personally. So we anchor to the central flame of the earth from our central flame in our body and we persevere.
I hope that your experience of life now is more jubilant then these images perhaps portray. If so Great! But for the rest of us: go easy on the self-criticism, recognizing that so very much is beyond your control. Focus upon what IS (possibly) under your control: your attention! Focus upon putting one foot in front of the other, receiving light from the central flame of divinity as you know it, as you define it.
and hang in there…
Thank you, essential flame! Thank you Sally 💞
Thank you Sally💕💕
OMG – thank you so much for this! I am indeed, feeling flattened, LOL! I have also, though, been instinctively pulling inward and focusing on grounding, and connecting with Source. Blessings to you dear! xoxoxo
Oh Sally! Thank you so much for your wise compassion – helping us to get us through these flattening times. .. the hanged man has been coming up lately for me too- Balanced, Harmonious Understanding (we are not in control of everything! thank goodness). Love and hugs
Thank you for sharing your teensy cosy cave for this lunar low-down; I squeaked in delight when the southern hemisphere got your shout-out!
It is always so interesting when we consider the entire global experience, and I just love how you managed to pull threads together that work for both mid summery times and your mid wintery moments… “anchoring into the central flame of divinity” whether in the sky or deep within the self (or Earth?) is the same gesture mirrored oppositely – so interesting how this is possible – and such a wonder-full message.
The leaf imagery resonates strongly with us, surrounded by flapping summer leaves basking and sucking in all this photon food energy – like them, connected, receiving life, part of the whole, relating to the mystery, participating, the simplicity and the deep complexity – a great picture to sit with.
Now I go off to research more around the cross-quarter of Lamas!
Thank you for bringing sidereal consciousness. What does it mean that 90% of astrologers are calling this new moon in Aquarius?
Blessings from me to you.
