Moving out of T-Town and a Solar Eclipse

I am also going to do some moon magic – a little letting go, a little intention setting, and a little gratitude. Of course, it’s good to take stock on a regular basis—and have some gratitude everyday—but today is especially big. (My friend Robert Alvarez created a lovely post regarding the moon and the power of “no” just this morning. Check Robert’s post out).

I’ve been packing up my art studio today—preparing to move out of Tucson. I’ll be in Flagstaff for part of the summer, a week or two in NY in August, and then, I’m moving to Phoenix.

I’m a little more stressed out than I would prefer to be! This last year has been so strange—and not in a good way. I need the strangeness to ease up. (I know, I live in Arizona, even this last year in politics has been gonzo whacky.)

I am going to take my own advice and relax a bit today. Last night I made a video with instructions for Savasana (Corpse Pose) for my Writing the Energetic Body participants. We are at the Crown Chakra. (Actually, tomorrow is the last day of the workshop – next workshop I do we’ll start with the Crown and work out way down).

A solar eclipse is happening. In a few minutes I’m going to gather my loved ones and we are going to the Science Center at the University of Arizona and will watch the eclipse through a Solar Telescope! It’s been a long time since I was able to watch an eclipse. I’m very excited.

Well, relaxing is going to happen soon. For now, I’m off to look at the sky!

Super Moon over Tucson.

  1. Holly, thank you for plugging my post! Actually, the one thing I forgot earlier was the Etymology of the word “eclipse.” According to http://www.etymonline.com, one of the original meanings (from the Greek) is “to forsake a usual place.” For some time now, I have felt that an Eclipse is an Energetic “re-boot.” It takes us away from the usual place, and brings us to a new place. That this is both a New Moon and a Solar Eclipse in Gemini tells me that this is a powerful time for enchancing one’s communication skills and talents (writing, speaking, art, music, etc.) and for anyone who wishes to deepen his or her connection to Cosmic Communication (Divine Will, a la the Throat Chakra, hearing the messages of the Innumerable Goddesses and Angels, et al). I have no doubt that the next few days and weeks shall be quite telling.

    1. We went to the university to look at the sun, but all the glasses were sold out. So, I remembered we had a welding shield, so we drove back home and looked through the shield. The sun looked like a golden crescent moon.

      Then, we went for a drive into the mountains, just for the heck of it. It’s been a long while since I’ve gone for a pleasure drive. The re-booting has begun!

      1. Holly, it all sounds heavenly. The pleasure drive is exactly what your Body and Soul needed, and a wonderful way to begin completing “Writing the Energetic Body–Shedding Inhibition Workshop.” And clearly, Saraswati Re-Minded you about the welding shield.

        1. It was beautiful! Layers of rocky mountains all different shades of violet, fushia, orange and gold.
