We are near the completion of the Samhain portal of shedding and letting go, while the time of great darkness, of going deep within is upon us. The most revolutionary action you may take now is to feel your feelings. Today we have the Moon conjunct Neptune and Mars in Pisces offering us a space to feel all of the feelings. It is deep and vast. Pisces is the mystic, the artist, the channel whom offers deep sensitivity, compassion and love. With this energetic current we can easily struggle with escapism, avoiding reality and unhealthy boundaries. The goddesses Venus and Ceres are both in Scorpio and in a trine with the Moon, Neptune and Mars so the ability to dive into the dark and unknown territories of consciousness is readily available, creating a space for true healing.
Chiron in Pisces is trining the North Node in Cancer allowing us to merge all of the mending that is bestowed upon us with this collective dream of belonging, placing roots into the Earth wherever you may roam, crafting true sanctuary within. Next Friday we welcome Yule, also known as Winter Solstice (in the Northern Hemisphere) at 5:23 pm EST.
Together we will gather in the Cauldron of Regeneration in the yin season of stillness. I'm offering a special class next Friday at West Asheville Yoga 8:45-10am in honor of Winter Solstice. All levels and abilities are always welcome. Also in honor of Yule, you are cordially invited to join me in the encore presentation of Entering Winter's Womb where I will guide you on a journey to the sacred landscape of Stonehenge, as our bodies truly carry ancestral wisdom and this is the season to turn inward in that exploration. You may scroll to the bottom of this week's Venusian Love Notes to find more details.
My apothecary is beginning to come alive again after the profound pilgrimages of 2018. I find myself reaching for the Magdalene's Muse anointing oil and the Auric Root Mist daily. I love both of these for traveling and for staying grounded, keeping my boundaries lovingly protected and for staying anchored in my heart.
May you honor the tender spaces of your being as we begin to bring this transformative year of 2018 to close.
In the beauty way,
