The New Moon this coming Friday is in Libra while Venus squared Mars over this past week. All preparation for the eclipses beginning mid-October. For so many, relationships of EVERY kind are in major messy review.
Stuff ending, stuff starting, stuff imploding.
But NOTHING to fear. Anything healthy will stay, and many new chapters will start. And hey, in the end, it's always an Inside Job.
I stopped by a couple astrology sites over the weekend and thought how odd this was being turned in some spots into yet more transits to panic and resist. But honestly, why? To me (as someone who did a zillion reads until I stopped my private practice in 2012) the highest purpose of this beautiful art is to learn how to align with the Divine in ALL circumstances. Every transit resisted just creates more suffering. And every one embraced brings deeper wisdom, joy and integration.
So here's a prayer I like,
Change me Divine Beloved into One who loves,
respects and accepts Myself completely.
O let me love myself as You love me!
Let me know my own value. Let me know my own worth.
Center me in my own sacred, beautiful heart.
Take me over, make me Your own.
Let me feel whole and utterly complete,
with or without Another.
Let whatever needs to come, come.
Let whatever needs to go, go.
You know my every need.
All is well.
Along these lines, check out my new book, a poetic sequel to Outrageous Openness: Letting the Divine take the Lead. It's called Make Me Your Own: Poems to the Divine Beloved. Paper and kindle currently. Audiobook soon too!
