Enjoy these potent words and musing from Pixie Lighthorse. I may share in an upcoming post.
THE POWER OF TRANSITIONS
This work takes place at the heart level, and Snake medicine is centered at the base of the spine/sacral chakra. When we transmit intelligence, we think of what happens at the level of the mind. This is good and right, and yet, when we bring our wisdoms into the heart, we open up a whole new realm of possibilities. Try to “listen” with your heart, as well as your mind. Your mind will break it down, and help you make sense, but shifts in the heart will transmute old patterning and affect real change going forward. Injuries, cultural, and personal, root in the heart’s memory, and so it is at this level that we must do the healing once we have dialoged with the serpentine vibrations at lower levels.
Can you recreate the devotion to yourself, which you are learning to do in the dark?
What are the differences? More/less distractions?
What tricks do you play on yourself, if any, during the day? During the night?
What coping mechanisms are you still relying on?
If you are one who seeks to “take the edge off” of transitions, how is that evolving/not evolving?
What are the benefits of taking silent time for you?
What are you learning about yourself within this transition?
How are you beginning to see and understand yourself?
What within you is craving healing? What is craving to be released?
What surprising elements are you shedding?
Who are you within life transitions?
Who are you when you are at your spiritual best?
How can you remain in good relationship with the sacred masculine, while reclaiming what has been lost of the sacred feminine?
What have you already done to return to a state of homeostasis in yourself and your family?
What would you like to do to continue on your path of self-healing, of honoring your innate gifts?
Are your formerly resented scars from a surgery, childbirth, or a C-section emphasized with makeup, henna, or tattoos?
Do you have a symbolic piece of jewelry or clothing you can put on to represent what has been received in this transformation?
What inspires you most about your process?
What are you most enjoying? Finding challenging?

Yesterday was a tough day, two little boys, lots of creative chaos, mess. Anger, aka The Red Dragon got a hold of my sweet patient but undernourished and tired mama heart and escalated from there. For me, its like the gas got turned on and then there was a spark and boom. We all have our triggers and we all react to these triggers in different ways. I, being an enneagram Type 1 - Perfectionist am prone to anger. Anger, like most of my emotions are powerful and when I’m anything other than balanced, I am vulnerable to lack of restraint. For the positive emotions, this is a beautiful thing, but for the negative emotions - let me say that they provide me with myriad opportunity for evolution. So for the last two days, tears of powerlessness and hopelessness have flowed, my stomach hurts, I sprained my wrist last week trying to push B’s chair up a big grass hill after I fell down the stairs at home, and I am gaining weight beyond what it comfortable. Why am i sharing all of these, well, this is my blog - I may share what ever I wish. And with these physical discomforts I have also received old memories and dreams of past mistakes - it seems that I will be undertaking the work of forgiveness during this moon cycle shift.
The Great Mother, Mother Elder Wise One - nurturing the child within
sensitivities are opened
Mercury Retrograde: July 7-31 - be mindful of how you self-express + rise in maturity, think twice about how you express yourself - speaking words in haste or anger are best left unsaid right now. Consequences of unguarded expression will be significant. Balanced communications vital - what may seem obvious to us may be inaccessible to others.
play + yield to Lightness of Being
take self less seriously
Eclipse portals - a powerful time for transition + change
What needs to be left behind?
There is a fire present - yield it wisely!
Speaking personal truth needs to be balanced with awareness of others
It can be easy to default to patterns - this eclipse is a massive calling towards a new path
sensitive, dynamic bringing emotional healing
insight as to how to change internal dynamics
“May bring the final healing needed to overcome a well-established pattern of emotional self-sabotage (amen!), but we must be prepared to do our part and acknowledge without candor, how we generate our own suffering - self-awareness is key and any feelings we choose to deny will continue to sabotage us.”
As the cover of my dear friend and author Laura Devries upcoming book notes:
You are stronger, braver and wiser than you think.
