Lunar Eclipse Drama, Astrospirit, Jacqueline Lasahn

Crazy moon.
World out of balance.

The dragon takes a bite out of the moon.
A shadow looms large where we expect illumination.

Howl at the moon!

It’s a new year. Time to be productive,
get stuff done, move ahead.

There are edges, boundaries, and limits.
The shadow rises up, gets in the way…

Luminous beauty,

Dismantle comparison.
Disengage the over-analysis.

“One of the most calming and powerful actions you can do to intervene in a stormy world is to stand up and show your soul.” Clarissa Pinkola Estés

Tiger butterfly Goddess of Stregth by Tessa Mythos. Leo New Moon: Heartfire 2019

Your heart is raw and tender. Why pretend?

You are human and bleed bloody red.

Be bold and listen to your heart song.

You are the center of your own universe.

Bring yourself into your center,

the place where

all your complexities and contradictions

collide and synthesize

and fuel your radiant heartfire.

Bring your attention

to your tender and powerful heart,

beneath the veneer of ideals and criticism.

Don’t hold back.

Give love, receive deeply,

love more and more,

allow it to circulate through and through you.

Allow yourself to be loved.

Allow yourself to Be Love.

Don’t hold back.

Taurus New Moon: Fertile Seed | Jacqueline LaSahn

(excerpts)

“Nothing is more precious than being in the present moment.
Fully alive, fully aware.” –
Thich Nhat Hanh

Labyrinth Meditation Cathy McClelland

Taurus New Moon: Fertile Seed | Jacqueline LaSahn


“Through the cycles and seasons

of our own life experience,
Notice when you are in and out of balance.

Drop your judgements
and self-consciousness of right and wrong.

Come home to your body,
come home to the earth.

Connect with the yourself in a deeper way
with sensuality and curiosity,
get down into your roots.

Welcome yourself home in your body,
welcome the earth, your home.

The body is a sacred garment.”

– Martha Graham (Taurus woman, born May 11)

The practical and the unseen are woven together.

Attention and observation
with heartfelt reverence
opens doors of awareness.

Everything is holy.

Connect with the earth
with embodied awareness.

Take off your shoes,
get your feet on the ground,
recharge your instincts and
welcome the earth rhythms through your soles.

Connect with the earth in a deeper way
in an active relationship.
Get your hands into the earth,
experience the cycles and seasons,
celebrate the fertility of the earth.
Don’t be a stranger to your Mother.

Taurus new moon is a fertile seed.
May your intentions be infused
with your uniquely blended instincts
to nourish your aspirations
from root to flower.

Taurus New Moon: Fertile Seed
May 4, 2019 3:45 pm PDT

New moon portal sparks instinct. Yet, in a world of data driven world of distraction and commodification, our senses can be dispersed and drained. Life is precious. Your body is sacred. Only you can listen to your cycles and rhythms. Only you can sense your instincts. The new moon in Taurus opens the door to your temple and welcomes you.

Seeds of Insight

What are the weeds that are diverting nourishment to my plants?

How am I standing in my way from clearing my path?

How can I simplify and implement practical steps so that I may resonate with the pleasure of being alive?

“The point is that our true nature is not some ideal that we have to live up to. It’s who we are right now, and that’s what we can make friends with and celebrate.”

-Pema Chödrön, The Wisdom of No Escape

Dawn by Anna Dittman 300x276 - Pisces New Moon: Dreamweaver

Cosmic choreography
intuitive path
open and empathic
learning to trust
the fragility of being alive.

Mirrored universe reflects
the natural and the plastic,
the innocuous and the noxious,
the marvelous and the atrocious.
Dazzled by the maze?
Be amazed.

“Even if it is very foggy, cloudy or stormy, the blue sky is always there, for us, above the clouds.” Thich Nhat Hanh

Reach inside the retrograde mystery
Dive into dreamworlds deep.
The tangled web,
a veil of jewels.
The wonderment of having eyes to see.

There are times when
life seems to slip between our fingers.
Surrender to compassion.
Sense into your vulnerability.
Forgive, allow and be present.
Innocence and wisdom join hands.

Allow being.
Seek the quiet
and Listen.

Oh my. This new moon is conjunct Neptune (Pisces’ ruler) which amps up sensitivity and confusion to the utmost. This is preceded by Mercury at 29 degrees Pisces in Retrograde (until March 28).

Inspired to swim in cosmic waters or afraid of being pulled in by the undertow? Be aware of cloudy judgements. Explore without attachments. Be ready to lend a helping hand. Allow for more time to go wherever you go. Follow your Muse, Dreamweaver! Visual arts, music, poetry all benefit this month. Bathe your heart in loving kindness. Spin straw into gold. Be clear with your boundaries. Keep your feet on the ground. Seek the wisdom of trees.

Jacqueline Lasahn: Lunar Eclipse Leo: Ignite your Path

Lunar Eclipse Leo: Ignite your Path

Moon Woman detail by Julie Dillon 300x109 - Lunar Eclipse Leo: Ignite your Path

Courage and curiosity
reveal your heart fire.
Ignite your path.
Illuminate hidden traps.
Clear the way forward.

Dispense expectations.
Create space for the unexpected.
Live in the now.
Deal with the what is.
Dance away the debris
of the past.

“The difficulty lies not so much in developing new ideas as in escaping from old ones.” John Maynard Keynes

Imagine this:
Lucky to be liberated,
graced to be free.
Admit your folded wings
to open fully
and follow the light.

Maybe anger brings clarity
or blood rises to cloud the eyes.
Old habits are a trap.
Step alive. Ignite your path.

Eclipse sparks a short circuit.
Leap into the future
and find yourself in the now.
Surprise yourself
with yourself.
Surf the shimmering
edge of awakening.

“The creative is the place where no one else has ever been. You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. What you’ll discover will be wonderful. What you’ll discover is yourself.” Alan Alda

Lunar Eclipse Leo
January 20, 2019 9:15 pm PT

I’ll take the liberty of quoting myself regarding a Lunar Eclipse Leo:

The dark side of this eclipse is greed, self-pity or a hunger for approval that masquerades as emotional fulfillment. The awakening is connected to a larger, all-inclusive awareness, that takes in the mistakes of the past and includes healing and forgiveness.

The eclipsed moon is in Leo, sign of creative expression, generosity and self-love. Doesn’t everyone deserve unabashed self-love and the vitality of self confidence? Here we have an opportunity to see and feel limiting criticism and judgements exposed. Welcome the light of love into the hidden places, bring gentleness to the vulnerability within you and the vulnerability in everyone.

Additionally, Jupiter square Neptune which came into place on January 13 (through September 21, 2019) gets cozy with Venus in Sagittarius at the time of this eclipse. Dreams and desire, illusions and ideals in romance and friendships are heightened. Enjoy the optimistic boost, be inspired, don’t hesitate to ask questions and be up front with the truth. Expectations go hand in hand with ideals. Be clear about your intentions and those of others. For some, there is an inexplicable yearning that cannot be quenched.

Eclipses always agitate the air. This one is squared by Uranus, the electric agent of synchronicity and change. We’re getting more than the usual dose (but what is usual anymore??)  of the unexpected. Some will be feeling more nervous, angry or impulsive. Use the impetus to break free of fear and find the freedom to express yourself.

“A truly creative person rids him or herself of all self-imposed limitations.” Gerald G. Jampolsky

What is my personal shadow on the other side of unabashed self-love? Is there any reservation (shame? fear? fear of what?) that holds back the radiance of my life force?

Where am I sensing an impatience or restlessness within me? How may I risk living life differently? What would that look like for me? Is there something I can begin immediately?

“It is a unique and powerful gift to articulate the intersection between the mundane and the spiritual. I love how you articulate that which is from the other realms. To find the words that make sense by pulling together all the realms is amazing to me. Your intuition, your skill and ability to align science and psyche offers an enlightening perspective.” Maura G.

Libra New Moon, Venus Retrograde

“Effort is the unconstrained willingness to persevere
through difficulty.” Sharon Salzberg

art by Julie Dillon from Daydreamers Journey 300x218 - Libra New Moon, Venus Retrograde

This tangled mess
and the effort in gaining equanimity.
As if Halloween came early this year.

Don’t shut down to love.
Don’t abandon yourself
to the addictions of escapism and denial.

Through complexity to wholeness,
dance in the labyrinth to heal,
to reveal your inner universe.

Allow your heart to be your compass
and mindful communication to be your ally
in the unknown territory ahead.

Venus retrograde in Scorpio
October 5, 2018 News Headline:

Swedish girl, 8 years old Saga (yes, that is her name!) pulls out pre-Viking era sword from lake. “She picked up the object, lifted it high above her head, and shouted…” her father said. She “stumbled upon something special in the muddy clay”.

(Further more: this happened in July, within days of of the new nomination to the United States Supreme Court. The news was released on the day of Venus retrograde and Kavanaugh’s confirmation.)

Mythic reality is alive now. Girls and women are drawing up powerful resources from deep, ancient waters. Yes, Venus Scorpio retrograde. We’re going deeper. What has been suppressed, rises up. Power, hidden motives, the undercurrents of relationships. Values and desire are up for reconsideration. Venus retrograde brings us to question worth and core values. We have the opportunity to build and empower integrity and justice when we consciously align desire and intention.

Sit quietly for a few moments… following your breath: breathing in and breathing out.

Ask and listen for the quiet voice:

Where am I investing my attention?

What is undeserving of my time and attention?

How may I simplify?

What practical action can I take to make a difference in the world around me?

Accept yourself as you are – this is not about imperfection.

Breathe into your kindness and wisdom.

“Thank you so much for your love, insights and dedication to your work.
With Love, Charla”

Aquarius Lunar Eclipse: Free Your Wings

“Every Individual is an expression of the whole realm of nature, a unique action of the whole universe.” Alan Watts

Aquarius Lunar Eclipse: Free Your Wings

Take a leap and fly towards the sun,
the sky is a door.
Go and let go.

Freedom is not for the chosen few.

No patience for untangling the web.
Persistence of vision
through the labyrinth of mirrors.

The speed of light will free your wings
as you step into the unknown.
Go and let go.

Your breath and the universe are one.

“I’ll tell you right now, the doors to the world of the wild self are few but precious. If you have a deep scar, that is a door; if you have an old, old story, that is a door. If you love the sky and the water so much that you almost cannot bear it, that is a door. If you yearn for a deeper life, a full life, a sane life, that is a door.” Clarissa Pinkola Estés

Eclipses are always a bit or a lot strange, eh? The irrational is enhanced and we find ourselves in a particularly unstable time.

Emotions are aroused and seek expression, although there is rationalization, distancing or difficulty in expressing feelings and many are apt to “act out” rather than “feel in”.

Impulsiveness runs high and perhaps there are a series of circumstances when caution is thrown into the wind and we just have to run with it.

The eclipse axis in air and fire may result in…..
