Symbol:The moon

After last nights meltdown of a post, I finally managed to fall asleep. Thank you,the moon. The moon is often associated with our intuition, sleep and dreams. It is also connected with unconscious wishes. It’s the feminine to the masculine sun.

I received many supportive comments from She bares all she can bear



It is a new day – a new a dawn – a new life’ Nina Simone.

 So today I want to focus on symbols connected to out emotions and instinct.

Yes, I had a shit day yesterday. The beauty of life is: just like the moon will always make its appearance so shall the sun. Until the Apocalypse of course. πŸ˜€  I’m not suggesting that men equal happiness (sunshine). Some do but so do women.  :D. That’s my equality awareness comment out of the way.

Some see the moon as representing the soul.  The moon has so much power over  us. It controls the rain, the tides of the ocean, all four seasons.

There are 8 phases in the Lunar or moon cycle , we are currently in the third quarter of the phase of the moon. This is meant to be a time for letting go and to forgive. Time to clear the cobwebs from the mind, tidy up and surrender to my emotions.



I understand now why my feelings have been jumping all over the place. It is interesting how I chose last night to share the post where I felt like I was going ‘mad’.  My brain was feeling pressurised. I felt burdened. I felt like  I had a myriad of thoughts stuck in the vortex of my mind and not enough resources to process them. The paper of my printed thoughts was jammed and the switch to turn it off was broken.

 I need to get my shit together.  Time to buy some new ink. The new moon is on it’s way and this will be a time for a fresh start. So no point ruminating over things I can’t change. I am already thinking about the things I need to do, what jobs I need to start. Training courses I need to prioritize. I need to shake out the dust of any excess useless energy leftovers. Only then I can move forward with confidence and  make March a month where I achieve what I want to achieve. To use the moons power to aid me instead of being merely governed by it.

Last Quarter MoonNow is the time to let go, release, and forgive anything and everyone that you may feel has hurt you in any way.  It is a time of emptying self and allowing the universe to take over or whomever you trust in your faith.  It is out of your hands and no more action is needed from you.


Maybe I am scared of things being ‘taken out of my hands’ . I want to push forward but the natural cycle and rhythm of nature is  compelling me to take no action. To rest, to find peace.

Something I struggle with a lot. I’ve never looked at my struggles in the context of symbolism before. It makes sense why I am exhausted and all over the place emotionally. Natures message is clear:

 I need to prepare for the new moon and what I want to achieve.

Balsamic Moon Peace.  This is the time to surrender, rest, and recuperate.  No more thinking, planning, getting in your own way, or action of any kind; just peace. As the Moon slowly enters β€œthe dark of the Moon,” we allow our visual minds  to become dark, too, and still.  Peace

I’m sure a few of you have heard the connection of our monthlies with the moon. Many moons ago women would retreat into their homes and take a kind of sabbatical. Doors closed with a huge -‘DO NOT DISTURB’  sign hanging on the doorknob.  What a perfect time to tell people what is really on your mind and then we can blame it on the natural cycle of the moon.  We can call it  ‘Monthly madness truths’- what a great therapy technique, ne  ce pas?



This is really interesting and a bit gross too  but we are all adults? I   started my monthlies yesterday so I am getting rid of physical and metaphorical  debris. By the time the new moon arrives. I will once again have my fertility powers restored. I can create new life– again metaphorically or physical  I wish Science would give Astrology more credit.

So what can message can we take away with us?  Well, I have discovered from this post that I need to be more aware I am of my surroundings,  what is happening not only within me but to also look and be more aware of what is going on outside of me. This knowledge can help guide me to focus and get the maximum results out of my life.

We never stop learning

  2. Just for fun, I present an alternate tack. πŸ™‚ The Sun is the Light of awareness, being awake and aware in the moment as you mentioned. This is the greater light. But then there is the moon. It is the Suns equal but in a lesser form: the laws, dictates, and doctrines we lay down to understand and point toward the Light. Light is Light. There’s a greater light and a lesser light. Both lead us to the same place in different ways.
    Thanks for sharing.

    • Ha! for fun πŸ˜‰ how can it be equal in lesser form? hahaha – the moon is more subtle . The sun makes more of a statement . obvious. I am the moon and you ART have to be the sun. πŸ˜€ πŸ˜‰ Always happy to share and learn your pearls of wisdom. I do agree light is light -whatever form it takes and yes it will lead different people in different ways towards the same source.


  3. Lovely read. We never stop learning. It sounds as if you should try to be more in tune with yourself and your surroundings. The last Meme about the sun dying, where is that quote from? I love theose words. By the way, thank you for the mention. I hope today is a wonderful day for you. Be well.
