Today’s Lunar Guidance for Moon in Sagittarius
Moon is still in Sagittarius, which is a good time for us to notice what we can learn from our wounds. This is because the moon governs our inner emotional / spiritual self so when it moves through the constellation of Sag we are all reminded of what we have incarnated to heal and learn this lifetime.
The symbol for Sag is the centaur, Chiron, the ‘wounded’ healer. Ultimately all of us play the roles of healer, perpetrator and victim. The more we understand our own wound the less will unconsciously wound others. (Just as someone in pain is so caught up in their own pain they are cranky because of it so are often blind to the suffering they are causing others.)
When we take responsibility for the healing of our wound we become a sage on the path for others but until we make the commitment to heal ourselves we remain dominated by our wounded inner child, blaming everyone else for our suffering.
So over the next day or so consider picking up a book or watching a video that can bring your suffering to the surface and provide insight to shift it. Movies are a great way to reconnect with our painful stories and through the power of parable in a ritual theatre receiving greater understanding to apply to our own lives.
For those in the Southern hemisphere, today is Halloween which is the halfway point between Autumn Equinox and Winter Solstice. This is celebrated around the world as a time of honouring the ancestors by remembering their legacy, their stories, their recipes and their teachings. The Mexicans called this festival, ‘The Day of the Dead’ and for the Celts it was the most revered of all holy days.
For those in the Northern hemisphere, you are now in the 3 day vortex of the holi-day known as May Day which was once known as Beltane, the Rites of Spring. This is one of the key gates when the veils are thinnest between the worlds so traditionally folk living on the land would set out a dish of milk and honey for the faeries (which was no doubt enjoyed by the cat) decorate their home with freshly picked flowers and gift flowers to those living alone.
These seasonal vortices are huge windows of transformation so embrace accelerated opportunities for growth this week!
As we integrate this week’s Scorpio full moon, the sign of death and rebirth and feel the effects of the transformational seasonal vortices of Beltane (birth in the nth hemisphere) and Halloween (death in the sth hemisphere) you may be called to confront your fears. This is an ideal time to watch (or rewatch) my video series, Initiation which unpacks our universal fears. Where there’s fear there’s power…sacred power! To find out more, click here
Blessings on your day
