So the blue moon came and went, bringing with it a healing energy that caused many people to shed tears, weeping away the old to make space for the new. This is most definitely the year of profound change. Even the summer decided to give it a miss this year!!
Interestingly we are now in Virgo season and with this the opportunity to focus on true vocation and life purpose. Virgo is associated with healing, purity and wellbeing, so no wonder we have to go through a process of transformation, for that is the path of healing. This means things may be a little edgy for a while.
Evidently Virgo is also associated with harvesting and the results of what was sown. So this is the time of year where we realise the practical reality of what we sow. if we don't like what we see, then perhaps it is time to give consideration to sowing a different path next year. Interesting to view life in such a manner, that once again we do have some bearing on how things turn out.
Of course often the Universe throws us curved balls and reminds our egos that we are not necessarily in control and we don't always get what we want. At such times it is tough to stick to the age old, "accepting the way things are", "going with the flow", and "trusting in the Universe". Perhaps it is all a matter of faith. Faith in oneself and with the bigger picture that we may not see for years yet.
I have been told that the soul purpose of Virgo is to purify and prepare our physical form so that it is more receptive to light and becomes a suitable vehicle for consciousness. It really is a time to give thought to whether we are fully aligned to our true purpose.
I find these times uncomfortable and yet they bring with them an opportunity to turn within, retreat, be quiet and still and embrace divinity. There are huge changes going on out there, and the focus should be on staying grounded to the earth and within the heart, so that we can ride above the anxiety, worry and anger that comes with such testing times. Yoga, Reiki and meditation can all help enormously, it is so easy to underestimate the support they offer us.
Plus of course there is nature, all is alive and beautiful, brightly coloured flowers fill the garden and there is a lightness in the air that encourages one to get out there and breathe it all in - gardening certainly helps the grounding and loving nature within us all to appear. The sea is warmer too, Petit Bot was a delight yesterday as it was so quiet with all the schools back again.
Om Shanti x
