When we were kids if my Mum suspected
we were telling her a story, a white lie
she would ask us to stick out our tongue
to see if there was a black mark on it.
Of course this was tomfoolery, because
clearly you can’t see your own tongue
as you present it as evidence.
And your willingness to present it
was proof enough to my mother that
we were telling the truth or not.
The innocence of babes
(or lack there of if we were indeed telling a fib:-)
This New Moon is testing our truth
and how willing we are to own it.
Do you know yours?
Or have you been telling yourself lies
so effectively you are unsure anymore?
The full moon will always reveal what is hidden
and there are always secrets,
we keep from others and
those we keep from ourselves.
We know that we must live with light and dark,
that we must own our ugliness as well as our beauty,
our kindness lies just on the other side of our cruelty,
our laziness lounges not far from our earnest busyness.
And yet we want to present like the Kardashians,
like the perfect lives we project on movie stars.
On this exact note have you been listening
to Beyonce’s Lemonade.
It’s extraordinary and a pure example
of owning all sides of everything.
I bow to your courage and your raw honesty.
This moon is important.
It sets the scene for the year to come
and is chignon light on the past few weeks.
It is begging you to own your paradoxical nature.
It is asking you to truly become who you are.
It is asking you to put YOU front and centre.
It is asking you to say NO
if it’s not a certain YES.
It is asking if it serves you first.
Sagittarius is the archer,
seeing the big picture,
casting sight on your vision,
on who you really could be.
but remember Gemini is an air sign,
the mental realm where over analysis
can tie us up in knots
separate what is illusion from reality,
what is fantasy from fact.
Can you tap into your soul,
into your higher self,
into your heart.
Can you let go of your ego,
while using it to get you into action.
Can you let go of your spiritual ego
while allowing your spirit to guide you.
Can you let go of your knowing,
while allowing you inner wisdom
As Osho reminds us everything we say,
we do is about ourselves;
not to be concerned about others,
but notice our own reaction,
our own response.
Therein lies our learning,
Can we face it, can we bear it?
And the truth is when we can
we open up to our greatest freedom,
our greatest joy,
as we learn we can be all of who we are
and if we can celebrate that then
the world will celebrate it with us.
How cool is that?
It bears repeating.
The universe wants you just as you are,
stripped of all the pretence,
all the masks,
all the faces you have so carefully cultivated.
Just you with all your unique gifts and quirks.
Just you as you.
Easy eh, and a lifetime’s work.
Now here’s the ritual.
Enjoy it soaked in a bubblebath
as you wash away all the noise,
all the layers, all the ‘make up’.
Let go and let your Goddess come out to play.
And every full moon is a time to cleanse
and energise your crystals with a moon bath,
and while you’re there,
have one yourself with bubbles under the light of the moon.
