Growing into a New Life: Our Initiation into Love
If we've worked with the Virgo New Moon's energies, grounding in new behaviors and ideas, we're ready to grow into our new life, our new story. It's going to be an initiation and a stretch for us to listen to the voice of our soul rather than the chaotic voices of our world. So how do we keep on track as we learn and grow into our new selves?
We need a story to walk with. We need a vision that holds us in wonder and awe, in magic and possibilities. That's what good astrology and mythology and sacred stories do. They walk with us through life and change how we see ourselves and our possibilities. When we walk with someone as a companion, we want to be the best we can be. Because we're walking in a field of love. Whether it's love of God/Goddess, love of partner or child, love of nature or for poor, suffering humanity, we are most ourselves in the interchange of love.
Unbeknownst to most people, we
have a living mythology we can relate to and walk with. The story
that the planets tell us every day. Most especially the Moon, which
moves through the astrological signs every 2 days, receiving the
light and energy of all the other planets as she circles us every
month. The Moon tells stories if we know how to listen.
The Moon is a mystery-keeper as well as a time-keeper. Working with the cycle of the Moon can keep us centered in the NOW as well as in Eternity. For there are two types of time. Chronos time is our clock time, the time we agree to share with others. Kairos time is Spirit's time -- real time, eternal time. The Moon can ground us in both.
This Aries/Libra Full Moon is the beginning of a another cycle, since Aries is that fire-bolt from heaven that starts the whole thing rolling. Every year at this time, we begin a new emotional, lunar cycle through the zodiac. While the solar cycle starts in March/April with the Sun in Aries and impels us to find out who I am , the Aries lunar cycle begins in August/September with the question, who am I in relationship with others?
