Dark Moon Meanderings

Filed in INSPIRATION

girl with giant blue butterflyI always seem drawn back to my Wolves book in the Dark of the Moon…

“Forgiveness is an act of creation…How does one know if she has forgiven? You tend to feel sorrow over the circumstances instead of rage, you tend to feel sorry for the person rather than angry with him. You tend to have nothing left to remember to say about it all. You understand the suffering that drove the offense to begin with. You prefer to remain outside the milieu. You are not waiting for anything. You are not wanting anything. There is no lariat snare around your ankle stretching from way back there to here. You are free to go. It may not have turned out to be a ‘happily ever after’, but most certainly there is now a fresh ‘Once upon a time’ waiting for you from this day forward.”

a correction to above text….should read —-spend a lot of mental energy trying to decipher just what brought this or that windfall, and how it was you truly earned something–(and you look at other areas of life this way, as well)–so that it becomes a mystery why things are proceeding as they do.”

Thankyou william. That helps explain a lot. Like I said you are unique, an enigma in fact. I * heart* you william! The money thing is foreign to me – empty 2/8 axis – but love the extra interp from another source – perpetual student! xx

well an astrologer on the net kind enough to answer a question and look at my chart for free simply because she enjoyed having had a laugh by me… (pays to have a sense of humor sometimes I guess..) hope she wouldn’t mind if I share it…(why would she?) she wouldn’t… The question was when was a lucky time to play the lottery— (this is the part of the story hard for me to talk about above– (stupid) seemed to me my lotto numbers were coming up in weird ways— but this is interesting reading about money for anyone I… Read more »

singing I believe also brings the angels around… I believe this… (sing with palms up and hands open…) I know a teacher who never sings for this reason… afraid of it’s power.. (angels?) I was mediating when moon got hit by nasa on oct 9 and it was if my thoughts were erased and then replaced with one word “angel” and I did not do this but it happened by itself… hmmm. I wasn’t singing tho’…. but very upset they were hitting the moon like that… (and it was trine chiron at that exact moment..) angels…. like that…

william – you’re freaking me out. I love that song btw. I did your chart, couldn’t resist it. Your chart ruler is Mercury which is in your 8th house in Aries, same as your Sun so self expression will especially meaningful. 8th house position is intense – you want intense merging with others and you’re into occult musings and have a need to delve deep (well yes). 8th house is depths of your soul stuff and you want to communicate on a deep and meaningful level.

hm, uck, ug, ark arg, ack , um… hmmm.

yes well… never make love under a scorpio moon I can tell you….
esp in chiron return… it’s…. risky-

but, uhm, oh… hm… uh huh… hm, my goodness, thankyou !

fluid feline

So your Chiron return hasn’t invlved profound healing then? More like a painful experience with a change in health? My mind is running amuck with scenarios re your reference to not making love under a Scorp Moon. You have natal Chiron opp Pluto. Jupiter’s about to go back over your natal Chiron so that should help with whatever it is. I wish you’d be more literal but i know it’s not your style 😉 You’ve got NN/Nept/Psyche in Scorp and a Kataka Moon so would think making love under Scorp Moon could be rather blissful. Then again your 5th house… Read more »

apologize for lack of literal (crazy merc influence that thinks everything is a playground for me to romp) another reason is it’s deep and painful and hard to talk about involving long kept secret dreams and hopes that were dashed… (and chiron— you know, interesting about chiron… on a wounding day (feb 6 aqua eclipse… a day, well I will tell you (you won’t believe me) but a voice came over internet as my computer locked and greeted me by name, how are you … followed next day by mysterious email message referencing well, (again you won’t believe) planet positions… Read more »

Too cryptic for me william, tell me more please.

Is ‘her’ Mystic?

Kataka Moon people do take a long time to get over heartbreak (i am one so i know).

What’s the sex magic stuff you are referring to? It’s a Scorp Moon today btw.

And another thing – this New Moon in Libra is conj your natal Jupiter/NN in the 2nd trining your Gem MC and trining your natal Chiron/Venus in Aqua.

meant to say “natal Chiron/Venus conj in Aqua in the 5th!”

not mystic no, is she aussie? this crazy story… computer locked and voice said how are (my name) clearly… (also rising jet noise in background- same noise as that night — identifying it as if…) had a night on myrtle beach, military jet went overhead just at critical moment… so this voice came on my pc on feb 6 right before aquarius eclipse… (but same weird stuff happened on may 6 see?) I swear… researching may 6 like crazy, a lot of weird stuff about that day… that scorpio full moon…) anyway, the truth is ‘out there’ (I cant really… Read more »

but no, I am thinking at this new moon, something… new beginning of surrender… like pluto… the giving up of attatchments and the chiron… what do you find after truly surrendering then? just kevin costner riding into enemy fire in dances with wolves like that… is this about venus? I am thinking maybe it is…. (for me at least…) surrendering… (what if you did commit suicide? complain so much why don’t you do it then? – do you want to? (always tempting….) but what does it mean?

from “Internal Affairs” with richard gere really intense scene right before he murders a good friend of his… (in the movie, not in real life…) but I shouldn’t have said that because people freak out everytime I already know that so why do I do? (it makes me laugh…) like tieing firecrackers to dogs tail and watching hahahahaha but yeah, weird day and this girl… and topic of forgiveness? 9 times out of ten suicides angry .. I don’t know…. Libra? venus is descending… scorpio coming… what is it? odd themes… again left wondering, is god about to kill me?… Read more »

i tried the whole ask a question of my dreams last night, and the only ones I can remember where about massages and lolling about in mineral springs – both of which I’ve been doing a bit lately, but would be very obscure ways to address the issue at question.
I also had some kind of armageddon world falling apart climb a mountain to escape a tsunami that resulted from warring powers firing missiles into the ocean type dream as well. Which also didn’t answer my question.
I’m thinking I’ll go with the massages and mineral springs approach.

Sweetpea

Good choice Shell. I contend that if the world leaders all got massages, there would be no need for war.

My dream last night was of a spider and I’d been bit on the hand. Was sort of another “dream paralysis episode” as veil between waking and sleep, alternate reality, was thin.

Always find spiders however a good omen of creativity.

and if they all took turns in giving each other massages … world peace!

I tried some mugwort tea last night and fresh mugwort leaf under pillow and was visited by a girl in uniform I knew in primary school, with a strong and relevant message for a project I’m working on (too complicated to explain). That mugwort works.

oooh, i am on a mugwort hunt….cant seem to find any in tea form…where did you buy it?
(i have a www cc of Mystic for mugwort smudge sticks…but they dont do tea…I’m being annoyingly fussy and stubborn minded on it being in tea form)

Leonine Librarian

Aquaphobe I found a site called whitemagic.com.au based in NSW that has a variety of payment methods and Mugwort tea for $7.50 for 20g…it is listed under the magical herbs section.

The sellers even include a crystal as that apparently helps keep the herbs fresh and they use bio-degradable cello bags.

Maybe they can help you?

william so with you on the singing – and pink floyd! – and maybe even some turkish hash but that’s been a long time… 🙂 had a major finding of my own voice through singing on long driving trips – just going with whatever sound came out of me – so powerful – made me realise how i had allowed my voice to be taken by others. it’s with me again.

On Libran new moon theme, had the most Libran dream ever last night… Am getting ready to go to a wedding & its all about being beautiful. The dress I’m wearing is a flowy silk chiffon drapy number in soft blues, purples & pinks- with starry diamontes on the bodice…& I’m massively pregnant, which adds to the Venusian glow. I apply my lip colour perfectly after taking quite some time deciding on a perfect shimmery warm pink colour & apply it flawlessly. My hair is done & I am loving my work…with looks of approval off to the wedding. I… Read more »

Women who run…communes directly with our souls doesn’t it…I’m reading it again, just a few pages a night, slowly, like truth serum poetry. Just seeing the book besides my bed (piled on top of much loved tarot & astro books!) gives me sustenance.

I like that singing thing, william…

I heard singing is a good path to forgiveness.

-something about how the act of singing gets around ego,…

because the ego cannot forgive.. you have to get out of ego first..

singing does this somehow…

I love CPE’s work – her taped fairy tale inspired programs are extraordinary (Theater of the Imagination 1 & 2, The Red Shoes, Warming the Stone Child…)
That’s a great quote. I agree with that.

Sweetpea

Told the ex a long time ago that I forgave him because I understood his stupidity. That doesn’t sound very much like forgiveness though, does it, since it’s not couched in pretty words.

Think I must be doing pretty good though because other than here, I don’t usually think about the ex. From time to time, some things still do hurt however and so for forgiveness to be “an act of creation” to me, one has to continue healing.

what do they say about forgiving but not forgetting…its weird…i was asked for forgiveness recently by an ex…i hadnt really thought about him in ages…didnt want to reply….didnt want to rehash all the hurt that had been worked through some time before….spent way too long trying to come up with a suitable written response. like you say…those pretty words. i found that i had really nothing to say. we were both very different people now. at least i am. he was assuming that he still had an impact on my life…and i was relieved to find out he didnt. in… Read more »

Haven’t heard the call for a couple of years now but ‘Women who run with the Wolves’ is one of the mainstays of my book collection. I’ve been so busy clearing, chucking, upturning and, as Clarissa says, ‘peering’ closely at all my stuff by way of the dark moon cull. Thought I was a minimalist but I can’t believe how much gear I’ve been storing….. Thanks for the ritual, Mystic. I’ve thrown away so much clothing and cosmetics. I finish the (cage) day job venue managing and running computer/corporate courses at a public hospital in December. Waiting to get confirmation… Read more »
