The Dark Moon reading of the cards is simply “Be careful what you wish for – know you have the power to make your world whatever you want it to be – choose harmony, choose love, choose happiness, choose tranquility. Do not allow challenges or disappointments to move you away from your true, positive, and appropriate intentions. Love is all around us, take it into your heart, grown it and share it.
Our last Dark Moon of 2017 arrives with a real bang; we are currently experiencing Mercury Retrograde, we are wrapping up Sagittarius season while Saturn moves from Sagittarius to Capricorn, and it is the holiday season.
The overwhelming message of this Dark Moon is to mind your language!
Words have power. This is not a secret, although it appears many have forgotten. The age of social media has given everyone a forum to say absolutely nothing, and that is often exactly what they are doing. The spoken word is the ultimate GIGO – Garbage In, Garbage Out – if the words are garbage, so too the world becomes garbage. If you are watching “reality television” or following American politics, you know this is true.
WITH WORDS, WE CREATE OUR WORLD
How do we stop this era of empty prattle and hurtful noise? How do we repair the damage done? Would you be surprised to learn the answer is as simple as ‘Think before you speak?’
When Emily Dickinson wrote these beautiful words about the relationship between the moon and the sea, she was drawing them to her very heart,
Oh, Signor, Thine, the Amber Hand –
And mine – the distant Sea –
Obedient to the least command
Thine eye impose on me –
Dickinson was not only a gifted poet, she was a mindful builder of worlds; she created her own, and she shared it with us and we are very lucky to have it still. She set an example we should continue to follow; mindfulness in our words.
No matter what you have been taught, the following are the same:
You create the world you live in by giving your thoughts (and ideas, feelings, wants, etc) life through the power of your voice. You release to The Divine Power of The Universe (call it what you will) the energy to create anything and everything; if you are not mindful, you will create perfectly that which you have no genuine desire to experience.
Before you speak it out loud, ask yourself: do I want this for myself, and what am I willing to pay for it?
Be honest with yourself as well as others, and create beauty when you are able – let mindfulness of words be your guide – and joy will surely follow.
