Full Moon in Libra April 4, 2015, 5:05 am Pacific Time Total Lunar Eclipse: 5:01 am Pacific Time
This Full Moon let's dance in partnership with all our relations; not just loved ones, but everyone. Let's make all our interactions a dance. The style of dance is up to you...slow and steady, raucous and loud, fiery, sharp, jiggly, juicy...take your pick. What are YOU sharing with others right now, today, tomorrow, over the next coupla full moon days?
As for me, I'm debuting my Lefty Art (cards & prints) for the first time in a booth devoted solely to them - finally! It's only taken 15 years to work up the courage. Why so long? Because I thought they were too weird and that the world wasn't ready for them yet, but after doing the exercise below I realized they are PERFECT and so perfectly imperfect; just like me and you and everyone else we know...so there! It's taken me years to get over a feeling of 'not being good enough' but I'm getting there... I am. How? By being myself and standing in my truth and by sharing my truth as I'm doing here...by relegating $ anxiety to the wayside which is not easy at all and it's taken a long, long time, but things DO change; for that is something we CAN rely upon. Oh ya, and the other BIGGIE was that I just could not let go of my other work and by that I mean show off in equal measure, both online and at art shows my other styles of art work: the LuLu Series, the Divine Feminine Series, the Aliens, the Magical Folk Art and on an on, but I needed to FOCUS and not confuse folks with all these different styles and for me, the Leftys are IT; they are my heart and soul and they need my full attention and YOURS! This quote from the book, The Twelve Wild Swans sums things up:
Up until now, Rose has followed her call, her intuition, her river. Now she must simply let go and allow herself to be carried away. In any initiation, there comes a moment when the initiate must give over control. In any creative process, there comes a moment when the work takes over, the characters come alive and take on a will of their own. In ritual, the true moments of ecstasy occur when we let the power move us. But for those moments to happen, the basket needs to be woven, the container needs to be strong. ~ The Twelve Wild Swans. by Starhawk and Hilary Valentine: Rituals, Exercises & Magical Training in the Reclaiming Tradition
Venus, (the Goddess of love and beauty) rules the sign of Libra and in my astrological birth chart She packs an extra wollop 'cause my Venus is in the sign of Libra AND in the 7th House (the Libra House) so I'm going to be sharing my beauty this Full Moon in the form of cards and prints displayed in a lovely, shabby chic booth. My two main props are oooold! The green desk was antique when my husband inherited it as a boy and it's where he did all his homework growing up. The chair was hand caned by his dad, several times actually. I didn't know that the Leftys would fit in with this particular style, but it all came together so organically after countless hours online spent researching booth and card rack designs at fab indie fairs like the Renegade and Crafty Wonderland.
To discover your own style, your brand, your dance, take time to go within during this Full Moon to find your quiet center. Then, look around you at your space; what objects are you in love with that are calling to you? Think about their colors, their feel, and any words that could describe them. Why are they so meaningful to you? Do this quickly while jotting things down in your Moon Journal.
Now, in 3 words sum up your personal style as depicted by all your fave objects surrounding you and make those words matter for they express you; your love, your heart, your soul.
My 3 words: Sweet, natural, earthy My 3 colors: yellow, purple, red Fave objects: a tiny handmade ceramic vase (cute, with swirly designs and a praying mantis), wildflowers, a letterpressed mermaid card, books
