Heaven's Gonna Burn Your Eyes**



I try very hard here on the blog to sound like I know what I'm doing, that I'm wise and smart and ... you know the drill. Ah hell, sometimes I am so full of it. Those who know me in "real" life are all nodding their heads right now. I get ahead of myself, I forget about restraint, I tilt at the world in joy or rage or fall to my knees, overcome by beauty, by love for this beautiful experience of life. Inevitably, the next thing that happens is: I crash.

Every one of the astrologers I admire has been wagging their fingers, sternly telling me (and everyone else) that this summer's line-up of planetary configurations, eclipses, grand crosses, comets, and such will create an atmosphere in which big, sudden surprises, lots of energy and changes will occur. They warned me, oh yeah. I should know better than to get all macho about it. I've been reveling in the big energy like someone on Ecstacy (I think - I've actually never taken Ecstacy). For the record let me say that the impact of running all this cosmic energy has been mostly great. I've learned so much in recent weeks, had many revelations and insights.

I'm not quite the bad ass I think I should be, however. While I was pounding on my chest and acting completely crazy, dancing and such (see yesterday's post), the universe snuck up behind me and smacked me hard - just like the astrologers said it would. Ouch.

As one wise friend likes to say, "Fall down once, get up twice." Yeah. OK. Or, another friend tells me, when in doubt, buy table linens. That is great advice. The good news is: THE MOVE INTO THE NEW APARTMENT IS ON!!! Wooo hooo!! I'll be in my own fiefdom exactly one month from today. It's time to get out there and buy table linens, poste haste.

There is absolutely no use in predicting what's going to happen next. This is one seriously insane summer. Don't count on anything! Engage, dance with the energy, but please don't go off the deep end like I have - if you can help it. I couldn't help it. But maybe you can.

Hand on my heart, eyes on the prize. Onwards and upwards.

Am I the only one encountering big energy, big disappointment, high hopes, shocking revelations?

Lynne said...

Is this by any chance a reflection of your new apartment??

ellen abbott said...

No big changes here except the shop finally getting built. No big highs or lows, at least not so far.

Reya Mellicker said...

Ellen may the rest of your summer be so serene!

Lynne the building I'm moving into looks like a castle. I'll get some good pics once I'm there.

Jo Floyd Lucas said...

No, Reya, you're not the only one. I've doubled up on meditation and long walks in order to try to maintain some equilibrium.

It's as if I'm flying among the pine trees (which I love) when I find myself suddenly flying TOO fast and nearly crashing.

Get up twice, buy those linens, meditate, or just hang on for the ride. We'll get through it, I suppose, and be better for it.

I think I'm gonna have to learn more about this astrology thing. ;-)

Reya Mellicker said...

Thanks, Jo. Yours is always the voice of sanity and reason. Today meditation was a total wash, but maybe tomorrow I'll have found some equilibrium.

A blessing (kind of) is that my camera went belly-up yesterday. I can not be without a camera so today I'll take a nice long walk to the camera store, buy a new one. Retail therapy, yeah. Whatever it takes.

NanU said...

You're so lucky! Moving into a new space is one of the most fun things to do. A lot of work, sure, but you get to make that place -your very own-. And that is real neat.

Everton Terrace said...

Where is this energy? Has it made it's way to Arizona yet? I feel so drained as of late. It's like my head is holding all the energy but my body can't keep up. Congratulations on your new place. I love decorating a new place, mine or someone elses!

Whitney Lee said...

I can't say I've experienced the energy myself, but I can tell something is going on. Nearly half of the marriages in our circle of close friends have dissolved in the last 6 months. It's quite bizarre when they were relationships that appeared to be going strong.

The Pollinatrix said...

I'm experiencing similar things. I've gone off the deep end in ways I haven't in a long time, and I'm actually ok with that. I'm listening to the big energy timing right now, going with it as much as possible.

John Hayes said...

So far, my summer has been plagued with depression--truth be told--I'm not sure I'm up for a lot of psychological pyrotechnics! But what will be will be. Great news on your apartment.

Ronda Laveen said...

Oh, no! Your camera died? Bummer. But then that means you get a new one.

Yes, there is big energy this summer. Crazy. Big steps forward. Big steps back. And the Wonder Husband's been feeling it the last few days. His car and seats that haven't been selling--all the sudden, BOOM! It's all going. A couple are coming down from Seattle today to, hopefully, buy the '62 T-Bird and give it a good home. June is busting out all over.

I just try to float down the center of the stream of energy without getting to disoriented. Table linens are grounding.

willow said...

Reya, you will always be bad ass to me! Exciting news about your new place!! Yay!!

Reya Mellicker said...

I found a refurbished camera, exact same model as my old one, for less than $100 at the camera store so I'm back in the photo biz. Yeah!!

Whitney, relationships of all kinds are creaking and groaning at the seams. But from what they tell me, this energy will strengthen and secure those that must stand, while dissolving the ones that had passed their expiration date.

Everton, yep, I've had lots of energy high up in my body, too, maybe trying to reach up to the sky, who knows? Mine is mostly around my heart, but that's my way of being in the world.

Reya Mellicker said...

John I'm so sorry you're having a lackluster summer. Maybe the grand cross will boost you upwards and onwards.

Mrsupole said...

I seem to be having a lack of energy and no matter how much I try to get any, none seem forthcoming. Although it could have to do with all these breathing problems I have been suffering with lately. Wheezing constantly and being barely able to breath does put a damper on your energy levels. But the pollen count seems to be higher then ever and I have never experienced anything like this in my life. So maybe there is big energy out there, it is just not energy for me.

So glad to hear the news about your apartment. That is very exciting to be moving to a new place on your own and you will not really be alone there. It will be full of energy and friendlies.

God bless.

Reya Mellicker said...

It's like some of us are running too much energy while others can't get enough.

Though one of my astrologer friends says today is supposed to be smooth and nice. Hmmmm ....

Deborah said...

the smack attack?

call or write me please

love you so

Tom said...

hope you can inject some of that energy into me-just flat tired from the heat and humidity...and dang, you see a photo opportunity in a thing i'd dismiss out of hand; what an eye!

steven said...

hey reya - my favourite thievery corp tune! how cool is that! and a cool connection to the work you're inside right now. i think transitions - well some transitions - are heavier than others because they carry an internal and external weight. oh and the cosmos has to realign itself when there's even the smallest realignment and i think we are sensitive to that big movement and it weighs us down, slows us down. you can feel when everything catches up 'cause it just flows smooth and timeless. steven

Reya Mellicker said...

Steven I swear I learn something important from you every day! One of my favorite astrologers advises me to figure out how to manifest internally something wonderful from an external context. I think that's approximately the same advice. Thanks for this.

No, Reya, you're not the only one. Everyone will encounter these situations, even countries. I believe the coming eclipse at the end of the month will concern countries much more than people. I always take notes on the more important aspects of each month including any eclipses and how they will affect my sun sign, moon sign and rising sigh.

I have already felt some of the big energy that's coming, prompting me to get my act in gear (for which I've been rather lax of late). I pay attention to my dreams, writing them down in my dream journal, and then analyzing them via my dream books. I have one in particular that tends to use the old oracle meanings. This is The Dreamer's Dictionary by Lady Stearn Robinson and Tom Corbett. Most of the meanings within are quite accurate. Almost spooky sometimes.

Some of my dreams were almost annual in topic, while others were new or different. Of late I have been having much more enlightened dreams where there are new objects and places, plus a lot of summertime daylight involved. There have been a few warning dreams but those are to caution me not to be impulsive, which I tend to be.

Congrats on your new place. Are you accepting house warming gifts from afar?

Reya Mellicker said...

My policy is to always accept gifts, especially housewarming gifts! Thanks, Barbara.

My dreams, too, have been vivid and groundbreaking. Old patterns are shattering. It's alarming and difficult and I'm certain, all for the greater good of me and everyone.

I keep thinking about the oil spill and what that would mean if life were a dream - which it is, of course. Feels like the end of our extravagant "lifestyle."

We live in interesting times!

Looking forward to pics of your new digs in a month or so!
