Yesterday my Aunt Gloria told me it was the full moon. Unless you know me, and my aunt, you will not understand the irony of this. I am the one who is usually obsessed with the stars and such things. She always thought I was “weird”. But, now-a-days she is listening to Wayne Dyer, wearing gemstone jewelry I bought her for various ailments and reminding me of the very things I told her, that she says have helped her “be more positive” in her life. She is such a cool woman and I am so blessed to have her!
It seems we never stop learning, starting over, learning again, being reminded, forgetting, etc. It is an endless cycle and I have been in such a strange place in my cycle. I am not surprised it is a full moon! I have had so much going on, yet feel like I am not doing enough, and at the same time, my very much “deadline oriented” self is very frustrated at things “taking longer” than I think they should. (I kinda felt like Zion in this pic to the right here and there, exhausted and bummed) But, circumstance has just stepped in and it seems that I had no reason to stress on deadlines for my book or album. They will happen exactly when they should. How many times do I have to be reminded of this! Things happen, when they are supposed to happen. But, having structure is always very important for me and I would argue for anyone. I just can’t have so much attachment to things going as I expect.
End of day, I am a happy girl. I feel so blessed and so driven to share all the amazing things that have altered my life for the better. I am still so overwhelmed by the world, and all the issues that seem only to get more complex and upsetting. But it seems there is change everyday. This change either brings light to or resolves, and both elements are so necessary to the shift we are all involved in right now. I am half way through this movie called 2012: time for a Change, by Daniel Pinchbeck. I got the opportunity to meet him last month, which makes watching more fun. But, wow, what an important movie. I cried many many times (normal for me whenever I hear/watch/discuss social, environmental and spiritual issues). But, it is inspiring and I can tell the end is going to make me feel empowered. Watching the rest tonight.
I also read my astrologers newsletter today. (He also wrote an amazing book I am reading right now called The Exquisite Zodiac). The newsletter talked about how we are back in the time of the 60′s, planetarily speaking, because Pluto and Uranus are traveling through Virgo as they did in that decade. We will again face the issues we faced then to see, “how we did”. It felt synchronistic given the movie I just mentioned also talks about how the 60′s started the evolution of consciousness. Now is the time for a majority to show that we have in fact done what is needed to combat rasicm, inequality, discrimination, poverty, etc. And, if we haven’t done what is needed, perhaps now with an ability to communicate and learn like never before, we can finally step up to the plate.
But, as I was reminded again today, it starts with the “Man in the Mirror” as one of my most important influences taught me. Step up and make the change for the betterment of everyone. Don’t rely on something outside of you to shift yourself and the planet.
Miss you Michael.
