Into the Shadows and We Find Slivers of Light

swimming in the waters of divine discontent, we emerge transformed

my view for the week

A good deal of the grief I’ve been feeling over a lost relationship has sort of lifted. It ceased as I have been treating a cold this week – and focusing acutely on my survival.  I took several days off of work and have been incubating in my apartment. I feel like I am in the gooey phase of a caterpillar’s metamorphosis turning into a butterfly, at least my lungs feel that way – and man – it’s all heart and throat chakra stuff! I really don’t wanna be stuck here – and – I have no choice but grow anyway.

The alternative to not moving forward is no bueno! So onward we go!

On a fun note about transformation: I like following the phases of the moon – and today is a New Moon in Pisces. New Moons are excellent times to put our intentions out into the world, and Pisces is a great moon for transmuting our Divine Discontent* into a powerful force for transformation.

I came across this message on Mystic Mama’s Monthly Astral Insights from astrologer PAM YOUNGHANS today – and thought it was in perfect line with my focus:

“Jupiter in Scorpio (which just went retrograde March 9th) sends us on a journey into the depths of our collective psyche, into realms that we might often avoid because they seem too dark.
“With this influence in effect, we have more courage to face difficult issues that until now have been ignored or hidden.
“Jupiter reveals secrets while in Scorpio, bringing to light an intricate web of intrigue.
“As we acknowledge truth, we transmute the fear and other negative emotions that have held us captive. 
“Eventually, we emerge as more empowered beings, having learned that we are capable of navigating through the darkness.
“As a result, we do not merely survive the journey; instead, we triumph…”

Happy New Moon and Saint Patrick’s Day!

  1. I love the image up top of the great rusting iron sun, its face reflecting stark winter branches. Is that one of your photos?

    1. Hi! Yup, that’s one of my photos. Thanks!

      It was taken in the winter in Marana – a small desert village just north of Tucson.

      1. Thank you! Is it a sculpture with a round mirror in it, or is that circle a hole that we’re looking through, or…?
