Gibbous Moon Phase: analyze, prepare, trust

Moon: Aquarius

Ruling Mahavidya:  Bhairavi

oracleToday we have the tendency to make things much more complicated than they are.  Our minds take us in a million directions, but we need to listen to and trust the clear, simple message that guides like a beacon. There is one message being repeatedly drummed toward us and it is telling us what is in our highest and best interests.  In order to receive the message, we maintain a sober, neutral perspective that is free from multiple emotional responses.  If you want an emotional roller coaster today, keep trying to take control.  But if an enlightened experience is your goal, relax into open trust and allow the heart-healing that is happening this month to continue.

All this month, the Wisdom Goddess Bhairavi is fortifying our hearts.  You may not realize it, but our hearts are much stronger than they were when the lunar month began on August 6.  That date seems like a lifetime ago, doesn’t it?  This is because so much overhaul of our hearts has transpired.  Our hearts are braver now and we are becoming more comfortable embracing the new and the unknown.

Today is the last day of the Gibbous Moon phase, so we still need to be in a “passive” state, but we want to be careful not to overthink things.  It’s not a take action type of day, it is a day to analyze and process.  The current Black Moon-Pluto transit is changing relationships – taking them to a different level.  It is hard to believe, but this is part of the heart-healing process that is happening.  Follow along without judgment of self or others.

It is important to keep it real by keeping things grounded today.  Reinforce your taproot with the planet.  Ensconce yourself in the blanket of the natural world around you and trust in the process.
