The drakes and me
The moon is finally dark today, thank goodness! This first moon of the year of the black water dragon has been explosive on many levels, but in particular it has outed all kinds of secrets, from previously hidden affairs of the heart to previously unseen cancers to previously hidden aggressive tendencies. The daughter of a client was bitten by her rescued pit bull mix, a dog she was very fond of, and proud to have rescued. The bite was serious; it crushed the bones in her forearm and the dog's teeth pierced the bone so deeply that marrow extruded from the wound. That is really a bad bite! Made me think of Jake and thank god that he never bit anyone. The dog has been put down, the girl is in the hospital where she'll stay for awhile until they're sure her marrow didn't get infected.
I am a black water dragon by birth and yes I do love stirring the deep, dark waters at the bottom of the sea, I'll admit it. Nevertheless or maybe because I have this tendency, I felt no hesitation about speaking directly to the black water dragons. I have been begging them to settle down, a rather useless act since dragons are fiercely wild and can not be domesticated in any sense of the word. What I "got" is that they were laughing at me since I am one of them. I asked if they planned to calm down a little bit with the dark moon. Indeed they seem exhausted by all the stirring and troublemaking. They really went on a bender to launch their year. They "said" they will sleep at the dark moon, but their "tails will continue to twitch." Hmph. There's no safety net this lunar year, apparently. Do you have a deep, dark secret? All I want to say is look out! It could all come out into the light. It could. Maybe it won't. Who knows?
It feels calm in Washington DC this morning. Brother Wind is blowing a bit and it's cold, but I don't feel the upturned energy of recent weeks, I'm not sensing upheaval. At least not yet! The day is young.
I have clients and more clients coming today to luxuriate in the warmth and softness of my new massage table. I'm looking forward to a satisfying day of connection and healing. Hope your day is splendid. Shalom.
