Disseminating Moon Phase: communicate, share, introspect, teach, learn

Moon: Libra/Scorpio

Ruling Mahavidya: Kali

A tone resonates through the rainbow bridge and the light changes, bathing everything in warm gold. In response, our companions on this month’s journey, the band of brothers, stands at attention. Kali walks to the head of the bridge.

“At the end of every crossing of the rainbow bridge lies a reward, which comes only after completion of a test.”

We emerge from the rainbow bridge tomorrow, but today each of us, as students of nature, face some sort of test in the story of our own lives. The test is how we handle something. It may come in the form of a very minor thing (and even occur in a seemingly inconsequential interaction) or it may be a very obvious, big test.

Before “test anxiety” sets in, here’s the highlight from the study guide: solving the problem on this test involves asking if the situation is outworn. If it is, it is a waste to continue putting precious energy into it because things that are outworn are dissolving – fading.

The test is whether or not we can walk away from it, put it down, not feed into it, let it be.

One of the major features of the Chiron energy, which is the “engineer” of bridges that transport (transform) us from one thing to another, is the temptation toward self-sabotage. This will come into play if we feel we deserve to be punished for something or that we have an inherent, fatal flaw. These are archontic mind programs that keep us enslaved to repeating outworn behaviors and feeding outworn situations. They prevent us from blooming into what we can be.

The transformational process that is underway this month has been enhanced this week by the Moon’s nodes contacting the Chiron Point – 04 Taurus – the degree in the sky where Chiron was located when it was discovered. The alchemy of healing old wounds occurs when this degree is activated.

Will you re-engage the wound or will you walk past it? You can look back to the darkness of shadows or you can look toward the horizon, where the “gold” of the soul awaits

Butterfly in a Winter Wood~

Thank you Cindy! So colorful bright and cheerful- imagine this post is just what the dr ordered for everyone stuck in blizzardsville with grey skies and below zero temps! I hope you have a good trip and I look forward to seeing the magic your camera makes of that gorgeous island:-)

We are in the air and on the move. If all goes well, my next post will be from sunny San Juan Puerto Rico! I will not be able to post, or comment on your wonderful posts for the next few days. But once we settle in, I hope to be back and blogging at least some of the time. Meanwhile I leave you with these holler butterflies and hopes that all is well with you!
