Happy, happy Magnificent, Magickal, Marvelous, Manifesting, Majestic, Mischievous, Merry Monday!!!
The sun is out and the sky is blue – it makes me super happy, doobie doo, doobie doo! My pansies are positively perking their little heads up which is a delight to see as I thought that with the bitter cold, massive snow and blowing winds they had perished (as they looked exceptionally sad), but they are rallying and reaching their gorgeous little faces towards the lovely warm sun we have been getting for the last few days. Whoot!
Remember how at the beginning of the month we explored the Shamanic theme of ACTIVATION? How are you doing with this?
The other day I was talking with a client and she was totally bent out of shape, discontent was running rampant through her thoughts and emotions and there was that “itchy” feeling linked to not feeling comfortable in her own physical body. As she shared, it reminded me of what Lena had talked about at the beginning of this month. “Let’s talk about the discontent. There is an aggravated energy that is pushing us towards conflict or breakthrough, new insights and new solutions, and moving us through our discontent and maybe even anger. You must remember to accept this as an important energy that creates the necessary friction for a spark to take place that ignites a circumstance that creates a window for something new to happen and a resolution to be found.”
Okay, so hold that thought about discontent for a moment as we explore the Full Moon.
This month’s full moon is a glorious Super Moon in Virgo, also known as the Snow Moon and she comes with all her glory on Tuesday, February 19th. “This Super Full Moon is potent as it falls at zero degrees of Virgo. Zero is the number of potential and limitless opportunities. Zero is the blank canvas of all creation, signaling that this Full Moon is really going to offer infinite potential. This full moon is going to help us realise our potential and also the potential around us, it is also going to open us, broaden our horizons, and encourage us to open our minds and hearts to something beyond our current reality.” (Read that again, okay?)
“Creativity and inspiration are key words for this full moon and we need to give our imagination some room to play and dream. We can put off the organization of details as we remind ourselves that life is not all seriousness and growth. There needs to be time for the inner child to express through creativity without any attachment to a specific goal.
The needs for expansion, adventure and expression are alive and well and should be acknowledged as allies during this time. Any resistance you have to a little chaos should be let go on an exhale. Take a break, do something fun, give your creativity an outlet and share your gratitude and inspiration with others. With that said, it is also good to make a plan for organizing the details and giving some structure to what comes from imagination, inspiration and creativity.”
Thus, I have an invitation for you. What if you took any discontent you are feeling it and instead of focusing on the discontent you used that energy to really, really fuel your passions and creativity? What would happen? Wouldn’t that be a far better way to utilise it? Now you may be thinking – Jenny, easier said than done, but let’s try a little exercise. Think of those pockets of discontent (with no judgement attached), write them down on the left hand side of a piece of paper. Yes? Now reframe them to a positive and write those on the right hand side of the paper. So for example if an area of discontent were physical body and feeling blaugh and tired – reframe it to something you enjoy i.e. “I love walking in the woods or through the meadows, stretching my legs and filling my lungs up with fresh air.” Capeche?
For myself, one of my passions is gardening and growing things. However, with all the snow we have had and most everything getting cancelled I was getting pretty grumpy about the fact that my inner green thumb needed an outlet to play in. So, on Saturday there was a huge “Seedy Saturday” held at the Convention Centre here, the place was filled with plants, seeds, workshops, bees, honey and you could even rent a chicken! My friend Marja and I went and explored and bought little brown packets of unusual seeds, ogled the bees, picked up literature pertaining to gardening with native plants and I grabbed a huge bundle of lavender that you can cook with. When we got home with our treasure trove of promise we made a plan as to who would grow what and we would share, that way we both ended up with twice as many different plants. We then took the lavender and a shed ton of lemons (which is more than a truck load) and made 9 (yes 9!) lavender lemon pound loaves with a simple syrup of lemon and lavender. Oh My Goddess!!!! Divine, delicious, decadent, delightful and scrumdelicious! So by using the energy of my discontent and funnelling it towards my passion it has set all sorts of wheels in motion and planning galore! (Oh yes, and a great desire to have bees but not rent a chicken!)
So with the divine energy of this wonderful Super Moon in Virgo I invite you to play with the exercise above and when you have finished the reframe, take the left side of the paper (the discontent blurps), light a candle and burn the paper. Offer it up to become cosmic compost and welcome in the intentional energy of creation, activation and inspiration. Are you game?
Okay, enough chuntering from me, let’s dance over to the reading. When I went to my cards and asked who wanted to come support, guide and inspire the Oracle of Shadow and Light did a delightful tap dance to grab my attention. Now, if these guides are new to you, let me briefly introduce you:- “Bittersweet, Unheard, Unconventional, Rebellious, Cheeky, Whimsical, Invisible….. They’re not words you often hear associated with the spiritual world, are they? Nevertheless, some of the most spiritual beings who have ever lived are those who have been most at odds with what we call the mainstream. They do not fit in. They have had moments of despair. And they know being truthful, and being real, is one of the greatest strengths and spiritual paths of all! They ask you to step out from the shadows, to no longer hide your light away, and come and consult with guides who acknowledge your individuality and strange genius!”
Positively perfect guides for the energy of this week. When I asked the crystals who wanted to join in it didn’t surprise me to see Black Moonstone – a powerful connector to the Divine Feminine, Brecciated Jasper – a wonderful grounding stone and helps with physical strength and vitality and last but not least, Moonstone – mystery, self discovery and the Goddess.
Okay, I invite you to take a moment or two just for you. Breathe in long and deep through your nose and out through your mouth. As you feel your shoulders settle, your jaw relax and your breathing lengthen invite in the question of passion. What are you passionate about? What can you reframe from discontent to passion? Let that energy flood up and when you are ready pick the card or cards that tug at you.
Did you remember to pick?
Shall we go have a little look see?
PINK LOTUS FAIRY
You may love your guilt-free rants, staying up too late, and happily behaving badly, but you’re about to balance all that out with some very powerful new spiritual teachings and connections.
You are to meet a wise one who seems very still, very slow, and very peaceful. She will be tranquil and serene and immersed in a path that until now has felt too slow, or “foreign,” for you. But this teacher, who is represented by the Pink Lotus Fairy, will assist you in finding more of your soul’s true wisdom. Within this time of inner discovery, you will commit to disciplined new training in the mental realms: study and physical movement that is unfamiliar to you, all of which helps you to naturally choose thoughts that are empowering and enlivening, yet completely authentic and real. You will learn to be still and to listen to the beat of your heart without giving in to restlessness, or the critical voice inside, or the cliches the ego loves to trip you up with.
After you have learned more discipline through peaceful practice of meditation or exercise or mantras, you will nurture yourself more willingly, without guilt, and you will have returned to a place of tranquility, self-love and peace. You will bring into balance your own shadows and light. Don’t worry – you will be happier and more peaceful, but you won’t be boring! You could never be!
Marie is very much like the famed Queen of France Marie Antoinette. She is stylish and delightful, always finding new and fascinatingly creative ways to amuse herself. Wherever she is, there is decadence and style, truly glamorous moments, and lavish entertainments. But even she knows she is simply amusing herself and that there is a hole t the center of her being where she wishes she were loved for who she truly is and could rely only on her talent and style to express herself, and not be judged for this. To be her friend is no problem at all as long as you remain truly yourself. Only, being with her has somehow made you wish to be more like her. Look beneath the mask, and the beauty, and the exquisite stylings, and see into her heart. Be her friend, and be her companion, but never forget who you are, and what is important to you.
Someone is about to invite you to be involved in something very intriguing. And this person will ask you in ways that are ever so charming, so the temptation will be ever so strong. Because this person is beautiful, and talented, and powerful, you are flattered! But the truth is, you run the risk of paying a very high price for this brush with fame or glory. Be sure that the politics and the intrigues are ones you truly wish for in your life – because there is often a sacrifice that must be made, and many consequences are currently hidden from you. It is tempting, no doubt. But it may not be within your best interests to pursue this strange, slightly tainted offer that will be made.
Be true to your own vision as opposed to what is currently fashionable and considered desirable. Creating, rather than following.
ANGEL OF ALCHEMY
The Angel of Alchemy is the miracle who stands between the physician and death – she is the powerful healing angel who will resolve this health issue that is confronting you at this present time. Her role is to help you to find the perfect treatment for your body and to restore your well-being naturally and healthfully. She will draw on powerful energy from her heart chakra, which will be sent to you and which can revive your energy and your belief in the possibility of your perfect health. She will help you to find the courage to face physical life, for it is that which has overwhelmed you from time to time. The sheer courage it takes to experience life in a physical form is that which she is here to help support you in – and to show you that not only does it take great courage, it brings the greatest of all blessings.
As she says: “I am here to help you make miraculous shift in your body and your health. Whether you have an injury or an illness or simply feel ill at ease within the form you currently have, I am the Angle of Alchemy and I can show you how to change your current experience of physicality. I stand here and have done so for many thousands of years. I have seen the fear and the guilt of others. I have seen the fear of infection, the anguish of pain, and the despair at life seeming to end. But I am here with you now to show you how to create health, and strength, and how to stop being so frightened of growing older and having times when your body will challenge you.
All will be well, and all this will pass. This form is just one of many you will create. Let me show you how to live anew, with love and health.”
Wow, some very powerful messages this week. So my delicious lovely, remember to use the energy of this glorious Full Moon on Tuesday to really focus on what you want to create, to ignite your desires and passions. Ask yourself and your inner wise voice “What do I really want?” Write your list of releases and desires, light a candle – give yourself the time to filter and listen. Have a stupendous week and wishing you lavender lemon loaves galore, time to create and huge connection to yourself and the Divine. Big hugs and squeezes and see you next week!
