A New Point of View
Sometimes a waning moon brings a lot of change and transformation - even though in my opinion waning moons should be quiet times of introspection minus all the external action. But - do you think the moon listens to me? Uh - never!
As proof that my ideas about an orderly progression of lunar phases are nothing more than my fantasies, this last moon (just turned today) unfolded herself not so much as a wise old crone, but more like a hulkin' dude of transformation, change, connections, and celebrations. The last quarter of the last moon was the Shiva Nataraj of moons. Whew!
So much happened last week, I still feel turned inside out by it all - though in a good way. Sometimes it's A Very Good Thing to have the rug pulled out from under foot. Still, adjusting to a new state of being, a new state of mind, can be a bit harrowing.
According to Chinese medicine, change is so intrinsic to life that when things don't change, dis-ease is inevitable. Amazing idea, isn't it? Certainly after the end of the moon just past, I don't have to worry about disease, do I? No way! No way. Yeah.
