January 31 – Dropping into Deep Silence

We arise today with the emotional MOON still in EARTH CAPRICORN heading toward a SQUARE with SATURN in RELATIONSHIP AIR sign Libra at 2:40pm.  Todays tension point comes quicker than it did yesterday. Although there is tension in the air today, related to relationships, work, life-path and direction, its really best to avoid thinking too much, avoid talking too much, and spend as much time in states of meditation and rest as possible.  This is a good time for any practices that allow us to experience the deep silence that is possible with energy like today.

We have a combination of capricorn earth and a lot of spiritual revolutionary Aquarian AIR right now as the moon wanes to its quietest place.  This is a time to DRINK of the DEEP UNKNOWN MYSTERY and the POWER of NOT-KNOWING what is ahead.  Its best, if possible to imagine clearing the slate of the future, instead of “having any idea what our future will look like,” allowing this quiet time to provide us with a peaceful blank slate, where we can consider the possibility, that what lies before us in the new creation, is beyond our imagination, unknown to us now, abiding in the mystery.

We crossed the deepest emotional point of our lunar cycle yesterday evening.  The worst is now behind us.  As we drop into the darkest lowest energy few days of this eclipse field cycle, it is an opportunity to allow the low energy, the earth–grounding energy to pull us down into deep rest or  meditation.  There may be feelings of insecurity or unrest, because of the “final pulling away energy” of the last few days of waning, cleansing, releasing, letting go of the old energy.

This is a sacred time of preparation.  A new year is being ushered in.  The deva’s and faeries are excited.  Arch-Angels are all around us, preparing us for the gift arising in us in the upswelling of NEW LIFE at NEW MOON on FEB 2nd, Wednesday at 6:31 pm pst.

Whatever we “dream,” and long for in this pre-new moon time, becomes the dirt that grows the seeds of the new lunar cycle beginning fully on the Chinese New Year, February 3rd, when the sun rises in a fresh lunar cycle.

As we sink down into the bottom of our life-lunar-journey this cycle, we can breathe out everything we’ve experienced for the last two months, December and January.  We can exhale 2010 and begin to inhale the fresh spring air of 2011’s Year of the Rabbit, floating sweetly in . . . gently, asking us to prepare for the gifts coming, by emptying ourselves of all discomforts that are arising right now.  The discomforts arising in the next few days are releasing themselves, clearing out of our space.  We can lovingly release these things, as we allow the release to take us into deeper and deeper states of rest.  Baths, naps, meditation, walking, being in nature and reading a favorite book are all ways to allow the depth to nourish us.
