Power. It’s Personal.

F9FA8C93-EBFF-434E-9644-A294C8473DBF.jpegIt was 1992, and my husband’s new work took us to the East Coast where he oversaw the 5 co-gen power plants in Manhattan, Greenwich, Boston, Baltimore, and Philadelphia to maintain EPA compliance. He was brilliant and handsome, an intellectual Leo with solid earth aspects, which is why I married him. We had long, long conversations about power. Co-gen power. Nuclear power. Solar power….and Magic.  I was a young mother and licensed professional living in Greenwich Connecticut at the time, and staying home raising a family.  We lived in an old stone house, a former tavern on the Mianus River, and had one child in kindergarten and another in the oven. There were old spirits in the house and along the forest banks of the river who presented themselves from time to time, and particularly at full moon.  They made their way from their boats on the river and into my kitchen in the wee hours of the morning. It was not unusual for me to lay in bed with the bright moonlight shining through my window and hear the kitchen door squeak open to footsteps creaking along the old wooden floors and into the kitchen. They were typically followed by the rattle of pots and pans.  If they became too ruckus and I felt my husband stirring, then I was forced out of bed and to sage and sweep them out through the front door and back to the forest river. After a while, one of them was most helpful in assisting me with my spell work. I got to know them, and they got to know me. And my husband and I continued with our conversations about power. We sat by the hearth, snuggled into the overstuffed floral chintz fireside chairs, with our toes rubbing up against each other on a shared matching ottoman. The EPA was paying close attention to the nuclear power plants in Chernobyl at the time.

”Imagine being able to harness that potential inside yourself.” He said.

“You mean, like bringing earth and sun energy into the solar chakra?”

”I’m not sure what you mean. Explain.”he challenged me.

”Use your imagination for a moment. In your mind’s eye, bring the earth energy, the co-gen energy  stored in the gas and coal created from the very center of the earth’s fire and ore, up through your feet and into your belly, and fill your solar chakra with it. Then bring the solar energy from the universe through the top of your head and down into the solar chakra and fill it with solar energy. Now, spin it. Spin it out through your entire body right into the cellular level to your DNA helix. Spin and weave the combined earth and solar energy through every level of the helix and into each protein component, illuminating each piece of genetic information. It would be a journey of self discovery.”

”I see what you’re saying.  That’s a  personal power journey, both spiritual and ancestral. That’s damned primal.”

The kitchen door squeaked open just then, and the oak floorboards creaked.

✨🦉Meditation: 04/04/19. Dark Moon Opportunity: Aries conjunct Sun. Releasing Unconscious Baggage✨

04/04/19 Dark Moon conjunct Sun in the 1st House

Today’s Dark Moon is 3° into the first house, Aries, ruled by Mars, and conjunct to the Sun at 14°. The first house addresses the early aspects of our life and offers opportunity for spiritual and emotional re-birth.This is a powerful and aggressive dark moon in Aries, a perfect celestial moment for identifying, cleansing, clearing and releasing our unconscious emotions of fear, irrational anger, guilt and shame that haunt us, create self sabotage and generally block our paths keeping us from our true self and true purpose. It’s the unconscious baggage we carry, put upon us by others early in our life, perhaps in utero, certainly in early childhood, reaching back into past lives.
As the mind has a difficult time releasing emotions, the body releases them with ease and grace.
Perform a Dark Moon meditation by setting your intention to release your . Unconscious emotional baggage. Implement the Zazen technique of emptying your mind completely. Do this in Child Pose. Hold, stretch, repeat until you feel a sense of calm and freedom throughout your body. Trust your Self. Journal the experience directly afterwards. You have much to reflect on.
Namaste’
