A Full Blue Moon is happening on the Samhain, aka Halloween.
Our ancestors payed special attention to this time of year because they perceived that the veils are thinner between the spirit/material realms.
All Souls Day, on November 2nd, further reflects ancestral celebrations that honor those that have left their bodies, but live on with us in spirit.
It is tragic to see how many friendships, and family relationships have died due to opposing political views that are culturally dividing friends, and family members.
Is this an invitation to heal whatever polarity that might be living within you to reconcile those diametrical oppositions, and make friends with those differences on the inside?
Could this lead the way into a dimension of digging up, and then reexamining any buried relationships?
In my civil rights work with students, and as a social worker in public schools, it is always challenging to find ways to discuss our diversity in ways that are done respectfully.
But it is a good communicative skill that we need to breathe more life into our planet today.
It is an interesting synchronicity that Mercury goes back direct on Tuesday, November 3rd, the same day as the official Election Day.
When Mercury is in Retrograde, life can feel like living in the Twilight Zone, where non-localized/non-linear realities are more real, and logical/rational thought/machines systems tend to break down, and become more disrupted.
If you are more of a left-brained thinker, who finds security in the creature comforts of concrete thought forms, then you might need to work harder at letting go, and surrendering to these energetic shifts right now.
Tis the season to get in touch with your feminine side, turn inward, and go into deeper meditations/dreaming.
It’s hard not to see the Presidential Election process being without more ugliness, and controversy.
It could take a while before the results are conclusive.
But then again, if enough of us get out to vote, any cheating or attempts at rigging or buying the election are trumped by we the people.
Those statistics fall apart when enough of us stop our silence, and exercise our right to vote.
Regardless of outcome, try not to predicate your relationship with happiness or suffering with which side wins the election, or dominates the Supreme Court.
What really matters is that we focus on finding inner peace on the inside, and become the change that we want to see in the world.
Giving up your power to the circumstances of life, as much of an armageddon as it appears to you, is a sure fire recipe for more inner misery, and turmoil.
Like Einstein said, insanity is to keep doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting different results.
There is a great awakening, and freedom in the surrendering to the heart space of Love, and head space of Truth.
A New Moon on November 15th awakens new beginnings, while a Full Beaver Moon on November 30th reminds us to set traps before a long wintry freeze.
Beavers are doers, and know how to get things done.
They also know how to build multiple exit strategies when it is time to leave the security of their old comfort zones.
Are you building new neuronal pathways inside yourself so that you can expand beyond your familar dams of consciousness?
Rituals can be a form of wellness.
But rigid aderance to them can dim the soul, and cramp the brain.
November is historically the gloomiest month of the year in Maine, as the days are getting shorter till the dark climaxes on the Winter Solstice on December 21st.
We will be at the tailend of 2020 by then.
Take a look back at how much the old world has changed over the past years, and this year especially.
Will there be a peaceful transition into a New Aquarian Age with a new administration?
Regardless of what side wins, it is time to let go of an old age that rewards/punishes winners/losers.
It is time to say goodbye to the dying ways of us/them segregations.
Instead of you’re this, you’re that, we are the fountain that springs from Source.
We are an interconnected diversity within unity.
November is a good reminder that everyday can be a true thanksgiving with an attitude of gratitude, and yield a peaceful harvest within.
It is within our DNA, and spiritual powers to ward off negative chi that wants to suck off of our energy fields.
Meditation on Turkey can satiate your spiritual appetite by fortifying your energy field with a hearty meal of energetic protection.
Gently allow Turkey’s shared blessings to feather away an unwanted ripple effect of dark energies that want to feed off of the amazingly powerful life force that lives within you.
Give this form of self care to yourself.
Till we tweet again peeps,
