When you understand symbolic language,
you add depth and meaning to events in your life. It's time to open the door to your Imagination
and let meaning in.
We are at the end of a decade (see NYTimes)
as well as a year, and it seems significant that 2009 ends with a lunar
eclipse. (While modern usage of the term
"Blue Moon" is being applied to this 2nd full Moon in a calendar
month, there's really nothing special about it. It is significant when there is a
2nd full Moon in an astrological sign, which happens about every 2
years. The last one occurred in May 2008.)
During a lunar eclipse, the Earth, Sun and Moon are in
alignment and the Earth slips between the Sun and Moon, creating the shadow of
the eclipse. The energetic light stream
from the Sun cannot be reflected back to us by the Moon there is an eclipse (eclipse means a failure or to leave out) and something goes missing.
So maybe for a moment during this eclipse (December
at 2:13pm EST/11:13 PST), you might lose yourself or at
least your conscious image of yourself. You might find that your Shadow is showing!

I believe that Americans are called to a higher consciousness at this point in our history. We are called on to live up to our ideals and create the country our forefathers imagined. Inner consciousness needs to be acted upon for social justice.
Cathy believes that our writers and artists must take up our responsibility to create art that inspires, teaches and heals our humanity.
Cathy writes about political, psychological/spiritual, and cultural issues.
