Moon Message :: 1.9.16

Moon Message #2.16 :: Coming Out || New Moon in Capricorn

 Dearhearts, A New Moon with Mountain Mother Capricorn and I feel like “coming out” … You may have noticed the poetic penchant in my life, wiggling and insisting to be seen and heard. I have a ritual, what a surprise! I wake at a pre-dawn hour, I take a cuppa delightfully warm water to my desk, I say a gratitude aloud, sometimes many, while I light a candle or two and open Word to a blank page. The Moon is always there to help me write this poetry, every morning a poem comes. Some I am going to share―about my work and your work, about the sacred parts of Rites of Passage, about women and girls’ ceremonies, about change in general, Soul and Genius, life and death, wild Nature and wild Feminine. As I bow to you, I invite you to come along; in my world, the New Moon and Full Moon present opportunities to share gifts.

Be the Gift

Deep inside your Soul lives your gift for the world
Perhaps resting beneath the soft blanket of snow
Call it forth now, your gift is needed for its beauty
Your gift is needed by the Earth, it’s a gift for Gaia.

Sit in the silence where we are all connected
Perhaps sitting on your cushion, eyes closed
The one place where we all feel conscious oneness
Sit there and contemplate our silent connection.

I sit in silence and feel you sitting in silence
Perhaps at the exact same moment before dawn
We are nourishing the collective by sitting quietly
Always we are together in this most peaceful place.

Rejoice in this knowledge, others are dreaming
Perhaps we each recall something sacred or wild
Gifts hover, wanting you to choose now, this New Moon
Yes, now, set your intention to join the gift economy.

The first New Moon of this New Year holds a gift
Perhaps you know all about your particular talent
A power gift, an opportunity to open your heart
Release all hesitation, dispel timidity and resistance.

Only you can offer what you find in your heart
Perhaps your wild heart is finally ready to leap
Not only is it unique, it is needed by us, the wild ones
We are Nature, we are Earth, we all feel desperate.

Will you find the gift you have been withholding
Perhaps its beating rhythm wants to burst forth
Can you consider this one sacred and most holy day
A good time to begin, exploring your gift for Gaia?

As agents of change, makers and givers unite
Perhaps we can rise now from our cushions
Through the silence of our OMs and meditations
Find group courage to heal ourselves and our Earth.

Stepping into my own example, I offer poetic visions
Perhaps too bold, I draw inspiration from the ecosystem
Sapsucker, Beaver, Weasel, and Chickadee
Fly, swim hop joyously greeting this New Moon.

On the second New Moon, a raucous, wild gift of February
Perhaps you will invite your gift to dip a single toe,
Just in time to notice the critters awakening from sleep
Or arriving from other, warmer places with their songs.

If you allow the spaciousness between these two Moons
Perhaps the your water of life will dance with the planets
For good dreaming and exploratory contemplations
Your Soul will begin to swim, fly, and hop up and down.

I say, Dearhearts, if you found your way through my words
Perhaps like a blanket of snow resistance melts away
You find your way through your armor to your gifts
We are all creatures of this Earth desperate for your offering.

Perhaps resting beneath the soft blanket of snow

Perhaps sitting on your cushion, eyes closed

Perhaps at the exact same moment before dawn

Perhaps we each recall something sacred or wild

Perhaps you know all about your particular talent

Perhaps your wild heart is finally ready to leap

Perhaps its beating rhythm wants to burst forth

Perhaps we can rise now from our cushions

Perhaps too bold I draw inspiration from the ecosystem

Perhaps the your water of life will dance with the planets

Perhaps like a blanket of snow resistance melts away

Yes
Now
Finally.

You are in my gratitudes today. Notice change. This is the Goddess before Winter Solstice.

Blessings.
