Reflection Prompt

While the moon and the sun exchange light, while one holds the other for reflection, let’s do the same. If something in these words catches your attention, sit with it. The prompt is meant to engage the iterative processes through which we create our mindscapes. This is self study (svadhyaya) in action.

We meet a Taurus full moon on October 24.

The vibe of Taurus, the archetype of the farmer, makes beautiful connection with Earth. The material world is a sensual playground. You are here to grow what feeds you. Bear witness to what makes your body feel nourished and your being in it safe.

Do you feel safe?

We’re in Libra season in a Venus retrograde. All I feel are flames: the burning systems, the patriarchy, the capitalist mentality, the encroaching mind-manipulation by the media. All of this part of the war on power and the fight that is moving toward power equality.

In the midst of it all, I don’t feel safe.

And yet, I am here. So how can I get through this experience?

Taurus

The Taurus moon has got me feeling the need to root. The need to play-pretend that I call crawl back into the womb. Leave this world behind. Honor and follow the need to feel the cool insides of Mother Earth.

As the season of fall deepens, the mornings are cool. I like to go outside early in the morning before sunrise and walk through the world. Remember that there are still things like mornings before sunrises where the wind is cold and the ground is still beneath my feet.

I feel safe for the moment.

It helps if I make these small observations of the natural world around me, connect throughout the day, come back to myself while the fire in the cultural world rages.

I am reminded, too, that all of this is a practice in being. That when I feel safe, I give up the feeling of being unsafe just for a fleeting moment. I remember that all explorations of the perception of being safe/unsafe are journies to the edge of comfort zones. All of the edges and the crossing of them are like going back and forth from the womb to the world that waits outside.

The Earth supports us, even when the culture doesn’t.

REFLECTION PROMPT: What time of day makes you feel safe?  Can you write a story around that experience?

Reflection Prompt

Like to use creative writing as part of your self care practice? Here’s a reflection prompt for you to consider. If something in these words catches your attention, sit with it. The prompt is meant to engage the iterative processes through which we create our mindscapes. These reflection prompts stimulate self study (svadhyaya).

We meet a full moon in Aries on September 25.

The vibe of Aries, the archetype of the person putting-stuff-into-action, invites the spark to get it started. Let yourself into yourself, listen inside to what your inner voice says is beginning and/or different from before.

You’ll know what it is when you hear it.

And it’s a dynamic time to listen, too. Listen while the full moon light is turned way up.

We are steeped in a balanced ratio of light and darkness care of the vernal equinox. Right now, the sun is fresh in Libra and themes of balance and justice are turning up. The Jewish tradition is honoring traditions of reflection and atonement around a new year. Pagan traditions are honoring harvest and abundance.

This is also the time in our zodiacal journey that we transition from working with celestial influence and energies around our selves and inner lives to energies related to others and communities. There will be more darkness than light in our physical experience (in the northern hemisphere).

So what is this full moon showing us? Rather, what can we hear that might be an extension of the seeds that were planted in the dark around the Virgo new moon two weeks ago? Now is the opportunity to see yourself in the inside and outside spaces. Bask in the brilliance of who you are and who you might be; relish potential–your own, the Earth’s and what she offers, the change in the experience of time–and align with the abundance with the bounty from six months full of sun.

Reflection Prompt

Here’s a reflection prompt, culled from evolutionary astrology forecasts. The prompt is meant to engage the iterative processes through which we create our mindscapes. These reflection prompts stimulate self study (svadhyaya).

We meet a Pisces full moon on August 26.

The vibe of Pisces, the archetype of the sorcerer n’ sorceress’ n’ in-between magic makers is reality shifting. Mind funking. Like Matrix guides going all cosmic and mystical. The Pisces in you can bend time and space. Reality is just a holograph anyway.

This summer brought a Mars retrograde (frustrated much?) and a few eclipses (bye bye, worlds!) and Uranus in Taurus (can your body hold all the breakthroughs?). But this point is where your Piscean nature capable of activating divine agency emerges. It’s time to trip to the cosmic pharmacy. With all the medicine aka lessons that came through life this summer, how is your spiritual health now?

One of the benefits of going through health things (mental, physical, spiritual health) is that the opportunity to bring awareness to the roots of the thing exists. This is where the karma, the causes and effects, set up the holograph. The circumstances. Your awareness can go to the root of patterns. Turn darkness to light. That’s reality shifting.

Even if full recovery doesn’t happen, there is information. Perhaps it was a part of your mind that was agitated. Perhaps was a part of your body. Perhaps it was a part of your energetic field. All of the new information brought into your consciousness by the agitation is telling you something. It’s part of the karma. It’s the cord between intuition and doing something different now that you know better. When you make choices that are counter-karmic, watch how time and space bends. Watch how things happen as if by magic.

Just like in The Matrix, you have a choice: red or blue pill?

REFLECTION PROMPT: Have you taken your divine agency lately?
