SelfCare & Centering ~ New Moon Jan 12th
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: Tuesday January 12th, 2021 @ 10:00 pm MST
Sun’s position: 28 degrees Sagittarius (The Centaur)
Moon’s position: 28 degrees Sagittarius (The Centaur)
Bonus Planets: Pluto 29d Sagittarius / Saturn 8d Capricorn / Jupiter 11d Capricorn / Mercury 12d Capricorn Also: Mars 8d Aries / Uranus 12d Aries
This entire New Moon chart is held between Sagittarius and Aries – basically less than half the circle of stars around us. And the heat of it is held in the space between the stars of Sagittarius and the stars of Capricorn…the stars of the Centaur and the SeaGoat.
One year ago Sun and Pluto came together with Saturn in January 2020 initiating a year of transformation. In case you don’t know (haha!), this process is not yet complete; we’re beginning to grapple with integration, as huge events are still unfolding!
This New Moon is an octave of that time ~ we’ve come full circle upon the spiral, another opportunity to be purified macrocosmically and microcosmically.
I’m going to give you the straight up message and then illuminate that with a couple of metaphors or images ~
First the straight up: We are called by the stars around us to continue our practices of centering. Finding deep ground in the earth beneath us and in the healthy practices that sustain us spiritually and physically. This self care centers the processes that are happening around us, centers these purification processes in a healthy way, a properly destructive way!
Find your breath and be quiet… and from this place of center, you, we can witness the continued purification of the world around us. These events are incredibly important, incredibly meaningful but do not Hook yourself to outcomes. In other words, do not fall into the illusion that the outer world is the only place that matters, that the outer world is the only place where the work happens… let me speak plainly: if you want to help the purification of the macrocosm – witness it from this deeply centered place. There are more surprises that will emerge shortly and your ability to witness them from a spiritually confident place helps.
ok ~ the metaphors and images:
Imagine yourself as a cell or an organ inside the human body… and this human body is suffering from an illness, a disease, an imbalance. If you, as an organ or cell within this body, dis-regulate yourself in fear and panic as to what’s going to happened to this body within which you live – you are not helping. Instead you bring yourself to optimal health, energized… doing your job within this larger organism and you radiate health and well-being into the systems to which you are connected: the blood stream, the respiratory system, the lymph system (removing toxins), the digestion system etc.
This literally can be a Sacred Imagination to help you ~ a meditation… we meditate upon the qualities of balance and harmony within ourselves and then work from there.
Let’s return to those strange animals of Sagittarius and Capricorn ~ the Centaur and the SeaGoat, each of them a blend of two beings… they would be completely useless and ineffectual and without life force if they were not able to find the harmonious meeting place between their parts. With much of the planets clustered here in this time of tension and great change, we lean into their magic, their medicine and find the Center of our own being around with around which everything orbits.
You have many (many) forms for this:
- the Sacred Cross
- meditating upon the Sun: either in the Qabalah, the tree of life or as it rests in the center of our solar system
- finding the six directions
- sitting within the Mothers of Change
- find within your tradition the way to come home to your center
- the final image given to me by the Stars is that of sitting within the Eye/ the “I” of the storm!
