“If there is any wisdom running through my life now,
in my walking on this earth,
it came from listening in the Great Silence
to the stones, trees, space, the wild animals,
to the pulse of all life as my heartbeat.”
The waves] move across a faint horizon, the rush of love and the surge of grief, the respite of peace and then fear again, the heart that beats and then lies still, the rise and fall and rise and fall of all of it, the incoming and the outgoing, the infinite procession of life. And the ocean wraps the earth, a reminder. The mysteries come forward in waves.
Full moon in watery Scorpio,
the Queen of the deep
Dive into your Self!
Time to explore
your creative fire
Emotional full moon in watery Cancer
Take time to listen to your heart.
Honor all your feelings – even the painful ones.
Shower yourself with LOVE!
Make this a great year by nurturing Self and Soul.
Sacred Earth Institute stands with Standing Rock.
“On one side is the unquestioned assumption that land is merely a warehouse of lifeless materials that have been given to (some of) us by God or conquest, to use without constraint. On this view, human happiness is best served by whatever economy most efficiently transforms water, soils, minerals, wild lives, and human yearning into corporate wealth. And so it is possible to love the bottom line on a quarterly report so fiercely that you will call out the National Guard to protect it.
On the other side of the concrete barriers is a story that is so ancient it seems revolutionary. On this view, the land is a great and nourishing gift to all beings. The fertile soil, the fresh water, the clear air, the creatures, swift or rooted: they require gratitude and veneration. These gifts are not commodities, like scrap iron and sneakers. The land is sacred, a living breathing entity, for whom we must care, as she cares for us. And so it is possible to love land and water so fiercely you will live in a tent in a North Dakota winter to protect them…”

Water Is Life
New Moon in Scorpio,
Transformative Ruler of Deep water and Deeper emotions.
As we head into the dark of winter, take time alone with yourself.
Take time to go Deep within.
Embrace your strengths AND your flaws.
Embrace it all, light and dark, pain and joy, confidence and fear.
Accept and Embrace it All.
Water flows through its day
Water meets whatever is in its path
And then it flows on
Water is never stoppable for long
Resistance is met with allowance
And water flows on.
Can I flow with liquid allowance?
As thoughts and emotions create inner ripples and waves
Can I meet and greet them kindly
And then just flow on
no matter where they take me?
