In the 18th degree of Focus and Durga Love
Five years ago on this day, after an intense period of struggle, I’d come to a merciless Tower moment in which I mercifully had an epiphany.
If I just told the truth no matter how scary the consequences seemed, I would be okay.
Not only would I be okay, but I’d also be free.
If I just told the truth.
This was a revelation to the part of me that liked to hide the hard stuff, roughly sweep the messy parts right outside the front door, numb the pain to take care of any emotional residue.
Ain’t that the truth?
Little big lie by little big lie, we become caught up in being somebody else for someone else, forgetting who we truly are, who we came here to be and how we came here to serve…Love.
We convince ourselves of the righteousness of the false paths we’re walking, swearing up and down on our loved ones’ lives we know what we are doing.
Or has that just been me?
Libra knows this truth-twisting, role-playing better than anyone.
Yes, dear sweet Libra who can see the beauty in the darkest places, the great human potential in the most treacherous of lives, the flip side of even the most tarnished coins.
Dear sweet Libra. We know her well.
She can also be that unconscious part of us who’s tolerated way too much pain in the name of small-self love, big-time fear, money, comfort, safety or whatever or whomever we might stay stuck in this pain for.
This sweet Libra energy running within all of us–she who sees the beauty, the potential and the possibility.
But then our lives blow up and we’re left with the ash-gray remnants of our fairytale dreams, making us feel unsafe to leave our front doors with our once-trusting hearts.
So we become skilled at building walls so thick and so high that the light can’t penetrate, so the weeds start to grow in our gardens.
Weeds such as I’m not safe. I’m going to die. I’m all alone. I don’t want to be alone. I can’t trust anyone. I’ll do this by myself. No one cares. Who will love me? You don’t understand. You’re not listening. Why won’t anyone help me?
The diamond light of Lunar Love as well as the current call of our planetary consciousness is demanding from us laser-blue focus.
We’re being moved to go deep within, as deep as we can go to see where the walls are and the weeds grow.
To cast our eye inward and to do the healing that needs to be done. Through focused practice, mindful meditations and personal prayers, we courageously call back the parts of ourselves we’ve given away or were lost to us in ways we didn’t see coming.
We then claim our True Path born out of True Love, dancing and delighting in the full bloom of the gardens of beauty we seeded long ago.
As a collective and as individuals, we’ve received a golden opportunity to learn something profound through this pandemic, including how we create and tend to our global garden, to cast an eye with Durga devotion on what needs to be released in our own lives and then place our learning and loving attention on the greater whole.
Along with this Full Moon, many of the planets step in as our Allies, partnering up in rare meetings, perfectly aligned, perfectly timed, perfectly attuned to activate within us the places where our deepest healing needs to unfold.
We cannot move forward anymore unless we initiate the complete teardown of the walls that keep us from loving ourselves and one another.
But we are in choice.
You may or may not choose to weed your own garden, look under the carpet, clean under the bed, go into the closet and move outside to bring down those walls that keep your Light dim.
Sometimes the truth of what we see in our closets, under our beds and behind those walls can be frightening but there’s no other way. We have to see what’s there.
This Full Moon, deeply listen to the subtle energies that move with you for they know. Become quiet enough to see a vision of the Beauty Way–and what that means to you.
The Beauty Way that Libra in her exalted expression knows best when she’s not playing small or swimming in superficial waters.
Libra energy can support us in finding the sacred amidst the chaos. Allow these recently opened planetary portals to catapult us into deep dive journeys into the indivividual and collective unconsciousness.
And just like when we were kids and we called on our guardian angels to protect us, we can invoke the Divine Feminine to grant us Sophia Wisdom and Kali Strength, Mother Mary Love and Lakshmi Grace to see this through, to offer the grace of holding the mystic’s third-eye view.
Of course, we can choose not to look, the less mature expression of Libra energy showing up to give you the excuse, saying I can’t make the decision about which side of the fence to sit on.
But the truth is this:
There are no more fences, there are no more walls. They were shattered for most of the world several weeks ago.
So activate the Lover within you and tell the Truth about why those walls were built in the first place and set yourself free.
Cleaning up the weeds
