Hello lovely ones and happy December!
For those of you in Los Angeles or visiting I hope you can come and join me for my final public soundbath of 2018 on Friday December 7 at Wanderlust in Hollywood.
It’s going to be a very special gong packed event and I am so looking forward to sharing sound alchemy with all those who attend.
So here we are in the final month of 2018 deep in Sagittarius (and my birthday!) season….
December 2018 is a month which sees the retrogrades of Mercury and Venus come to an end (yes, I know Venus turned direct but she is still very much in her post retrograde shadow motion).
When planets turn direct or retrace their steps in the cosmos it can be discombobulating.
After the initial, yay - X planet is direct feels - the truth is that as the planet retraces its steps up above in the cosmos so too below on the physical plane it can make us retrace certain steps in our lives.
Revisit and reconsider certain scenarios, situations, decisions, etc….you get the picture…and yes very a la retrograde to do all things RE but here is the thing, the shadow period is part of the retrograde.
With these retrograde shadows in the background and for those of us in the Northern hemisphere approaching the darkest day of the year with the Winter Solstice, and a new year around the corner, Soulstrology says the theme for this month is ebbing and flowing.
We all know how the tides ebb and flow and the moon waxes and wanes, and that so too there are times in our lives where our vibration rises and then falls, where life is ‘good’ and then ‘bad’.
These are the currents of life which impact each of us and which we all have to contend with.
Really when you think about it this theme of ebbing and flowing should be something we apply all year around, at all times, because that is life.
I love this quote by Anne Morrow Lindbergh:
We have so little faith in the ebb and flow of life, love, of relationships.
We leap at the flow of time and resist in terror its ebb. We are afraid it will never return.
We insist on permanency, on duration, on continuity; when the only continuity which is possible in life, as in love, is in growth, in fluidity - in freedom.
Wise words and food for thought as we not only embrace this final month of 2018 but also ready ourselves for a whole new year…
In truly ebbing and flowing we ride out the currents of life as they wash over us and we work with the energies for our own personal growth, with non-attachment to outcomes or certainty, but just trusting that as we grow, as we align further with our highest selves and our highest good, life will reward us.
Perhaps it is not as we envisioned, or hoped, but our fluidity with the ebbs and flows allows us to embrace and importantly appreciate what is.
Mantra of the month:
I know that the only true constant is change and that change is not something to be feared, but rather to be appreciated as a tool for alchemy
With this in mind, this month I truly embrace the ebb and flow of life
I trust that what comes up will come down, and what is down, will come up and all of it is ultimately for my highest good
I am fluid and flexible in my approach to the ebbs and flows, always looking for the growth and the silver lining
May we all learn to dance and swim with the ebbs and flows and may this help us grow and find the blessings in all of this precious human life.
I am wishing you all a wonderful month ahead.
