the change in season from Summer into Fall and the astrological
cusp of Virgo and Libra. There’s a super moon too.
In short, it’s another Apocalypse. Google it, it’s a thing.
For better or worse, this September is one of those rare times when our true nature comes into vivid focus, without embellishment, without backdrop. It’s when the masks come off and we get to see what’s really underneath. It’s time to take a brave, unblinking look at your dark beauty while recognizing and appreciating all the textures of truth and light that surround your unique silhouette.
Now back to the Apocalypse . . . The legend describes a dicey choose-your-own-ending tale preceded by a gruesomely complicated Catch-22 struggle with an overpoweringly dangerous beast. Just because the world supposedly burns down into an impenetrable darkens this coming weekend and a giant imaginary Viking wolf comes out of the void to potentially gobble up all hope of the future is of no real concern. You will save the world from certain destruction in one deft motion. We trust you.
There are some very serious monsters out there, ones who definitely have their hungry eyes on the cherry pie of your tomorrow, but the shaggy beast that you must confront in order to save the world this time is a different kind of animal and it lurks in a much deeper and more personal terrain. You can forget about a magic bullet or a silver bullet to hunt this thing. Nordic legend states that the big bad wolf must be taken down with your bare hands. Weapons are useless against the beast that dwells within.
Smoochy and I also suggest that you bare your soul to the beast as well, because the fear of no tomorrow is really a lack of confidence in today. Eclipses are collective times of holding our cosmic breath and waiting for the shadow of doubt to pass and a comforting sky to return. Fear is always scary, thus the name. Fear of loss, fear of change and the lonesome thoughts that come with them can stymie even the most intrepid soul.
The story about the snarling beast of the Apocalypse is really a fairytale about the same things that typically bite us all in the ass. They’re easy to recognize, even in the dark. Often saving the world means dismantling our fondest outmoded aspiration, reaching into the shadowy, uncertain places and grasping some hope for the coming day. The true heart always wins out.
You are an extraordinary creature with the power to dream reality into creation. Choose your alliances carefully during this twilight time of astrological power because it’s time to press the interstellar reset button. Relax. It’s only the end of the f’ing world. There will be a new one tomorrow, and it can be even better than the last one, as long as we kill Apocalypse.
The Snohomish Circle Green Reiki faction is planning to do just that, this Thursday evening at seven.
