Ups and downs ✍️

the Sacred Sanctuary

It’s Sunday… astrologically ruled by Sun. Today Sun sits at the critical karmic last degree of 29.

Early morning here tomorrow Sun slides into Virgo… the Maiden, the Vestal Virgin, the discriminator par excellence… the Medicine Woman committed to her craft… the healing presence, the temple goddess. The body specialist.

Her connection to everything bundled into one

Her awareness of the macro and the micro… how deeply intertwined they are

Her clarity and vision… humility and soothing

She’s had a bad rap through patriarchy.

Up and down I go… bit like the tide

I try to distract in the most wholesome way… immersing myself in the healing rays of Mother Nature

it mostly works… lifts me out of the heavy collective soup

I need to be vigilant

call on my Virgo pal… to keep my space sacred

keep out all the riff raff

all the ugly

all the stealing my peace

my knowing

my connection to myself

What I’ve discovered… as I make my way through the howling winds

the angry mobs

the noise, the noise, the noise

that without me… I have nothing. Worse than death

contemplating such an existence… is horrifying

an emptiness no words describe

I am my saviour… in me I find everything I need

to doubt that… takes me to another level of hell

Trust during these times is so precious

staying close to my Self

and if I let go of the rope just for a moment… I quickly grab it back and hold on tight.

The incredible Sacred Gift of my Self… so knowing, present and complete.
