Happy Witch Wednesday!
By now, we all are well aware of the chaos the world has been experiencing recently. And right now I don't want to talk about the specifics if I'm being totally honest I'm still trying to wrap my mind and heart around it.
Mostly I just know that rock bottom is usually what happens before change. And it's okay for us to admit how fucking scary that is. We've all gone through our own personal rock bottoms and will continue to have them throughout our lives as we end one phase and enter the next. But there's something about a collective rock bottom that really really shakes us up.
We are scared. Confused. Feeling helpless, some of us feel hopeless. But when destruction comes, there's the opportunity to rebuild that comes along with it. And if we can learn from our lessons, if we pay attention, if we stay self aware...then the rebuild should be an improvement upon the last model.
Never has there really been a time like this for most of my readers.
The New Moon in Cancer on July 4th was really down right emotional upheaval at it's finest, for better and for worse. A finally direct Mars in Scorpio obliterated the bullshit, the lies, the corruption, the denial. It's not been pretty on the collective. It's been weird as fuck on the personal.
And THIS is what we've been preparing for. With the self-care rituals, meditation practices, yoga,magic conjuring, the self-awareness.
And for a long time it's been all "light and love" and "be present" and "forgive the past" and "surrender" and "stay positive."
That shit is NOT going to cut it. You're deluding yourself if you think you can send "light and love" right now and it's all going to be cool. I'm all for sending good vibes to the hurting energy we have on Earth. I'm all for it.
But here's the deal. This shit is fucking DARK. And you're totally kidding yourself if you think you can skate over it with some affirmations and gratitudes and praying each night. Yes, those are powerful rituals and are not something that should be stopped.
But it's time to actually CHANGE. It's time to actually heal. It's time to actually step up. It's time to actually start walking the talk we've sure as heck been fucking talking for the past several years.
This is a "9" year and in numerology that's almost like a Full Moon. We are reaching the end culmination of the past several years. It's essentially the ending of one phase into another. And there can be LOTS of celebrations happening there, lots of things to be grateful for. And there will also be LOTS of fucking kicking and screaming.
This week I wanted to share that with you. That while the "light and love" movement has really ushered us into some amazing shit. Lots of healing.
It's finally time to stop practicing and actually step onto the proverbial stage . Make no mistake, this won't be pretty. But it doesn't HAVE to include the violence of histories past. IF that were the case, I highly doubt so many of us would be appalled and outraged over what's happening all over the Earth. Blood has been shed since the dawn of fucking time. And believe me I know there are plenty of arguments saying that this is instinctual human nature to fight and defend when we feel threatened on which ever end.
But could you fucking imagine the progress AND power that could be had if we were able to harness our passions, our voice, our darkness, our rage and do so in a manner that meant all of our differences could actually be heard instead of silenced with fucking death and injury? (don't get me wrong, there are some energy that must go as it is infected beyond healing, but MOST of it is not...and that's why we are in so much pain as a people.)
THIS is about dancing fiercely as a unit. A dance so fierce you feel the passion and the contrasting energy harnessing their own power, their own uniqueness, their own qualities, harnessing it so fiercely and then listening to, being aware of, compassionately observing and openly communicating with another's energy that you are totally spellbound by the sight before you for it's beauty in all it's fury and grace.
THAT is what we need to prepare ourselves for now.
The desire and darkness encompassed in a passionate dance of two forces.
This may be a wee bit unpopular, but I'm over the love n' light.
Perhaps it's because I'm a shadowworker with a dash of lightworker.
But this is going to get ugly, probably even uglier before it's get prettier. And the only way to prepare for it is by going deep deep deep within to the ugly parts of ourselves and face them.
This is pure Black Moon Lilith in Scorpio energy. Lilith symbolizes all of the darkest parts of ourselves that we don't even like to admit to ourselves. This is witchery and magic. And in a sign like Scorpio, shit gets stirred the fuck up. Shit gets DESTROYED. But it also gets rebuilt here to for Scorpio is the sign of the Phoenix, the mythological creature that regenerates a new from it's own ashes after it burns. A cycle.
Black Moon Lilith is in Scorpio for 9 Months, she came in on May 22, 2016 and she'll be here until February 2017. 9 Months...isn't that about the same amount of time it takes to create a human life?
I have a feeling this is no coincidence.
What I'm trying to say and what I will end with is this: It's time for us to go fucking deeper inside. Get honest. Face the fears. Demolish the bullshit that is within us. Get ugly. But stay compassionate and take the deepest care of yourself. When we can embrace that innate dark energy within us, we can truly KNOW ourselves. And when you stay in constant intimacy with yourself, your personal power is a force. And it trickles out. And out and out.
It's time to upgrade the training wheels or get rid of them. It's time for us to help each other navigate the darkness by navigating our own.
I do not have any idea yet HOW this will manifest. I don't have any of the answers. I'm sure we will fall. And make mistakes. But when we can surrender to the fact that we are human and imperfect, and that compassion will help us forgive and heal because we are just going to be so tired of anything else. Ask anyone out there and they will say "I'm just so tired of it all."
We are all tired. So tired. And that's a good thing because we are finally going to exhale. And the inhale...well..it's going to be so fucking deep our bones will shake.
with magic I'm sending you desire and darkness,
Happy Witch Wednesday!
