Trusting My Inner Guides
I spend a minute or two several times a day standing in front of my monthly lunation cycle installation. There is a small bottle of tangerine essential oil on a lower shelf. Every time I stop in front of it to clear my mind and return to my center, I put a few drops in my hands, rub them together, and hold them to my face inhaling the essence, while I focus on the items sitting there.
These items are on the left side (receiving side) of my altar.
My Angel Box holds a collection of angels I’ve received as gifts over the years. They remind me that I am supported in other realms. I see each one of them as a guiding and protective spirit or individual aspect of my inner highest self.
The Beyond Illusion card sits in front of my Angel Box. It says to look within for what is real, rather than seeking it in the external world. It offers assurance that in our own deepest truth, the difference between dreams and reality is known.
Following my 1st Quarter advice to take action in support of my needs, I cleaned my work space and arranged my schedule to accommodate my need for solitude to write about my feelings and explore ways of improving my communications.
In order to make the space in my schedule, I’ve had to curtail my time keeping up with my favorite blogger’s posts and participating in social media. There is some irony in this because the internet has been my main communication forum since 2000.
Considering the current dramas being played out, here in the US and in the rest of the world, it’s a challenge to stay calm and focused. I decided to take the weekend off. By that I mean, I limited my email and online time to 30 minutes on Saturday and Sunday.
It was a wonderful respite from the outside world. I read, did crossword puzzles, day dreamed, and wrote in my journal. I did some housework, too – very Cancerian.
All the while, thinking about how I can work with the Gibbous phase to revise my original intention for this lunation cycle – to observe and communicate my feelings. The goal seems simple and straight forward. I’ve attended to the writing practices I planned out during the Crescent phase with the positive result of processing a lot of unresolved feelings from my childhood. My intention can be improved by aligning it with the desired outcome.
My revised intention for this cycle: To nurture my emotional maturity and communication skills by observing and writing about my feelings.
