I welcome it particularly today as it brings to an end a turbulent cycle of mixed energies involving a powerful Mercury in retrograde, an equinox and the changing of time in many countries. For me, this period of the completion of the influence of Pisces, all about duality, has epitomised the struggle of each of us to express our humanity with the wisdom of Spirit, in lightness and in love, despite and because of the challenges of our material world.
I have felt the nearness of the cosmic realms and been reminded of the gift of our lands as the season changes once again, but have been tested day after day as tools I took for granted ceased to function, like printers, optical drives, wi-fi, computers all stopped working, one by one, despite being of good quality and young age. With perseverance and a little expenditure I have managed to restore a normal working rhythm, but it has caused me to see what I have and what I use with new eyes of appreciation, and to reflect upon the Principles of Simplicity and Acceptance once again.
My technological issues were all about communication, but while Mercury may have influenced them he was not, I feel, wholly responsible for them. Spirit was at work too, nudging and pushing me forward with strong messages to wake me up both during my day and as I dreamed in restless sleep, messages the meaning of which are veiled for now. I speak personally and publicly because I know others, perhaps you, have felt too the impact of a powerful lunar cycle and you too may have had your own bewildering tests in recent days.
Another new moon, today, brings change, it cannot be otherwise: how it will manifest is up to us and up to God, and so it must be good.]]>
