Crescent Moon Phase – Moon in Pisces
We are continuing to “keep it real” in the midst of a good bit of confusion and fear. And there is the added preoccupation with the “appearance” of things, and therefore added energy into judging people, places, and things. This isn’t the way to go with the energy. The real thing is the feeling that happens with celebrating life and the beauty of everything that is around you. In the Northern Hemisphere we are celebrating the beauty of dark naked branches around an even darker backdrop of the sky. Friends in the Southern Hemisphere will have to send their take on the beauty they are seeing around them right now. The truth is that it is the time of year to ground down to the planet and have a sort of communion. It’s a blessing worthy of heavy celebration. But that doesn’t seem exactly appropriate to many. So what to do? How about a quiet, inner celebration where your focus is turned toward the natural world and connection with the planet? The pllanet – the ground – is where we need to focus now. Everyone is gazing out in space with their focus turned toward the Galactic Center, which is good, but we need to be firmly grounded if we are going to gaze out. All of this is metaphor for staying true to what is normal and what remains in integrity. Keeping things real means shunning fakery and the superficial (ans sometimes shiny) appearance of all types of things.
