First Quarter Moon Phase: step out, break away, grow
Ruling Mahavidya: Matangi
Today’s energy pushes the wounding and healing themes of Chiron, especially tendencies toward self-sabotage and self-defeat. We are inclined toward giving up on various things. Since we are in the time of year that is like a long Third Quarter Moon phase, the energy naturally leans toward seeing things for what they are and closing some of them out. It’s like a month-long closeout sale. Some things just need to be given away. Feelings of failure, victimization, shame, and guilt should be the first to go. Accept responsibility for your part in things, if any, and then cease the mental self-assault. It is a drain of energy.
The month-long closeout is really a year-end closeout of inventory accumulated since April 2013 (the astrological new year, the New Moon in Aries). So this is a deep sale. It’s an opportunity to make things right, but it is also a time of reflection and re-evaluation, which can be tiring. It is very important to take care of ourselves and give time and space for stillness. Staying on mission of being firmly grounded in place, building power and resilience requires time to mentally and emotionally process things.
It’s a good idea over the next few days to ask what would quench your soul.
In the meantime, be on the lookout for signs of life! Snap a photograph when you come upon something beautiful and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org or share it on the Oracle Report Facebook community (2,900 strong now and growing!). We all need an infusion of beauty.
The Moon will be in direct opposition (making a line) with the Galactic Center this Sunday, February 9, 2014, at 6:13 pm EST/ 3:13 pm PST/ 11:13 pm UTC. Let’s tap into the line with a group meditation. Information to follow tomorrow.
