Earlier today I was really uncertain about what I would blog about. I spent much of the day shoveling snow, then shoveling again. But, all the while I was shoveling I couldn’t help but stare at the beautiful crispness of the day. I was filled with a child like sense of wonderment, of all that was possible. Memories of past forts, snowmen and snow angels came bursting into mind. After all the said work of shoveling and snow blowing were done, I threw myself into the snow…I laid there…took a deep breath and as I exhaled, I made my first snow angel in years. When I was done, I looked up into the snow filled sky and smiled, tomorrow would be a full moon.
So …I must write.
Like I stated above, we received a lot of snow today where I live. Beautiful blanket of a crisp white snow, covering all that was previously exposed. Seems fitting on the eve of a Virgo full moon.
This full moon actually contrasts the signs of Virgo and Pisces.
Why do I say fitting? One of the many things the Virgo full moon magnifies for us is the need to sift through our essence. Look at who we really are. We are asked to look within. Peel back the many layers of conditioning. Release all that does not serve our higher consciousness.
While Pisces teaches and reminds us that we are both a particle and a wavered portal and eternal, a singular and indivisible part of the universe. Pisces asks that we see through the illusion of duality put our trust in our inner knowing and remember how we are all one.
The fresh layer of snow today filled me with a sense of beauty, and peace. It was like I was looking at a blank slate. I could make it anything I wanted. So in an essence, I am being prompted to look within with the same excitement. Release all. Sit with your sovereignty, feel the essence that it you. When you start to fill back, only call back the energy and focus that best serves your highest good, or what rings true to you. Not what you are suppose to feel or believe.
Recently I read some information on the Virgo full moon by a Stephanie Austin. Something she said really imbedded itself into my head. She said (in reference to the alignment of the sun, Chiron, Venus and Neptune) “These alignments show us that acceptance, not time, heals all wounds. Judgement and resentment close our hearts and will literally make us sick.” I have really found this to be true in my life. Big events, painful events do not go away, the imprint or impact that they make on our life are difficult to fade. Acceptance of what was, what happened, allows us the ability to move on. If your are unable to accept, you may need to look within a little more, what are you blocking, why are you holding on.
Letting go doesn’t mean it wasn’t whatever it was, it means that you no longer are going to fuel it. You are no longer going to keep the energy flowing. By continuing to send it energy you create a circle event…it always comes back to you, over and over again.
Look at the blank slate (blanket of snow) start fresh. Don’t know how? Intend it. Intentions are that powerful.
I actually saw a post on Facebook today, someone said that the February full moon is called the snow moon, definitely the case today here in Loveland, Colorado. Check out my FB page!
Enjoy your full moon.
