Moon in Purva Bhadra + 1st day/compassion
The new/dark moon reminded me (again) of the prophecy giving to me by my teacher 2-1/2 years ago for this particular period of my life:
You will be more successful in what you don’t do, than what you do.
After a 17-year period of Mercury-aligned success and achievement, coming into the 7-year Ketu period has been quite something.
It is medicine.
As any healer-type will tell you, we are only healers because we needed this medicine first…and took it, albeit reluctantly. Ram Das notedly shared: “We are all walking each other home.”
This new moon, I’m committing to go with the flow of ‘not-doing’ and starting by letting go of the idea of Yoga for the New Student series. No signups, no interest. What can I “not do?” This is one thing. Expect less doing from me and more being. If I want to get through this 7-year-period, I need to flow and glow. Maybe it is time to just hang my coat on the yoga of not doing, restorative yoga…
What medicine did you glean from the new/dark moon yesterday? Tell me in the comments.
We start our journey back picking up the seed of compassion in Purva Bhadra, she who earned the merit of a saint from a previous past live. My guess is we’ve all be saints and we’ve all been sinners. Today, tap into your saintliness.
Tell me your current affirmation in the comments, if you want to be seen in your strength and courage and earnestness. I want to see you.
"We are walking each other home." Spoke to me.
Coincidentally, the dark moon fell on Ash Wednesday, the beginning of the penitential season of Lent. Ash Wednesday is a reminder of our mortality and, paradoxically, the hope of immortality. Lent is a time of reflection and introspection and study. - Jerry and Deb 💙💛
