Happy full moon and happy lunar eclipse.
There is so much energy in the sky.
Fire (Moon in Sagittarius) + Air (Sun in Gemini) = Combustion.
Cause to celebrate…where is the kid in us?
GEMINI: So much fun! SAG says: Turn up the volume!
Maybe it’s because I have these two signs in my chart that I have always been a kid at heart. It’s so easy for me to laugh, for my legs to run when I could walk. I stick my finger in the frosting — even though I know it’s wrong.
The sight of a sunset, the sound of children laughing, the tears of a broken heart — they touch me and make me want to cry. At the grown-up parties, I’m always the one in the room with the kids, playing.
It’s as if I swallowed the Sun and ate the stars one by one… until lately.
I have secretly been feeling that the world is no longer as shiny as I had perceived it before. I find myself aging in my soul, and not having as much fun.
This full moon lunar eclipse (lunar eclipses always happen during a full moon) on May 26, 2021, is asking us to consider what happens when sadness comes to town.
What philosophical angle can we use to lift up the energy? A Sagittarian would say ‘everything is nothing and nothing is everything.’ A philosophical attitude can lift us out of despair and put us in a light-hearted, semi-fake joy position.
The best medicine I have found is to turn on my observer and talk to myself. I say things like…
Think about black holes.
Don’t forget: there are angels watching.
Consider the big picture.
You’re just a speck of dust.
Michael lives across the street from me and is a world-renowned astro-photographer (veryoldphotons.com). There is no way you could take your little problems too seriously when looking upon these photos; however, the emotional body walks around blindfolded and victimized.
There is no way to talk your sadness and despair into true joy when the world is in the situation it’s in. Try as I might, I go all philosophical and when no one is looking, I drop back into sadness.
It’s like trying to tell your kid to stop crying because the Sun will come up tomorrow. The child doesn’t understand the concept of tomorrow.
But you do. You can use your grown-up spiritual powers to consciously decide to hold the positive energy — even in the face of our collective despair.
Three years ago during a eclipse, I literally told myself there will be no more complaining about living on this planet… and it worked. I used to hear myself say all the time, ‘I just want to go home.’ I don’t use that sentence anymore.
There I was, in meditation outside during a full moon, when I declared that I live here on planet Earth out of choice. Nobody pushed me on the bus. Nobody cajoled or seduced me to come here, even though my little child’s emotional body insisted that I was a victim and orphaned. My grown-up philosophical self knew different and I changed my inner dialogue for real.
If I’m allowed to eat the icing off the cake as an adult, I’m also allowed to tell my whiny little kid to swallow the Mad Hatter Tea called Sagittarian Blend and change my attitude (it doesn’t hurt to add some vodka to that tea).
I’m so curious if your little child is in despair. If you’ve lost hope.
I heard someone say the other day that COVID took away the bounce in their step — they’ve lost their fun factor.
This eclipse is an opportunity to choose again. It takes muscles; it’s a choice.
I would be dishonest to tell you this is easy. It’s not. However, in honor of the frequency and the energetic imprint you are putting out in the world, we must consciously lift up the energy to joy.
I always encourage people to listen to music when they wake up in the morning, to sing loud, and to find a way to access your healthy inner kid. Get outside and play (said the Sagittarian full moon) — summer’s just around the corner. Doesn’t everyone love summer?
Tell me in the comments below: What to you do to change your sadness? What is your philosophical angle that keeps the bounce in your step?
Sometimes it’s the glass of wine, sometimes it’s going shopping, sometimes it’s hanging around with the kids that don’t know we’re supposed to be sad. What do you do?
And tell me the truth: Are you suffering from the collective pain of our times?
I’m so sensitive. I always feel it. Some of you don’t have to dwell in the sadness.
I’d love to hear from all of you. Where is your inner child and how is he/she doing?
